A.L. Jackson is releasing her prequel novella to Take This Regret today and I’m thrilled to share it with you. A.L. is my friend and pub sister, but she’s also taught me more on this writing journey than anyone else. I’m so happy and so proud of her and of the success she’s had. As of right now (9:43pm January 30, 2013), Lost to You is sitting at #124 of the Amazon paid Kindle store and #32 in the contemporary romance store. That’s pretty amazing when her release date is January 31, 2013!
Here is the description from Amazon:
People come into our lives. Some stay, and many go. Some build us up, while most tear us down. They become our friends, our enemies, our lovers, our tormentors.
Christian Davison came into mine, and I knew I’d never be the same.
To Elizabeth Ayers, New York City had always been a dream. She’s worked her entire young life to make it here.
Groomed to one day take over his father’s law firm, attending Columbia University was Christian Davison’s only option.
Neither wanted anything more until they sat across from each other at a café table after being paired as study partners.
Christian wants her, but Elizabeth knows better than to give into their intense attraction. Yet there is little she can do to stay away.
Lost to You, the prequel to the bestselling romance, Take This Regret. A New Adult novella, recommended for readers 17+. You can find it on Amazon and Barnes and Noble. It’s unnecessary to have read Take This Regret to enjoy Lost to You. BUT if you want to know more about Take This Regret, here it is. I’ve also included my review.
TAKE THIS REGRET
A promise to love her forever.
A betrayal she could never forgive.
A change of heart that leaves her questioning everything she thought she believed.
Can she forgive someone who has committed the unforgiveable?
Or are there some wounds that go so deep they can never heal?
My review of Take This Regret:
Another honest read by A.L. Jackson. Her characters are more true to life than any other I’ve ever read.
This book had me tied in knots for days. Any mother can relate to the lead character, so can any college student with plans and dreams. Sometimes life doesn’t work out the way we plan but some other times, life just falls apart.
While reading this story, I felt like I was on a roller coaster and I didn’t want to get off. You’ll fall in love with Lizzie, but her mother Elizabeth will break your heart. I can relate to every feeling and fear she had as a mother. How can you hate someone who clearly loves your daughter? And trust me, you’ll want to hate Christian too, but his feelings for Lizzie are palpable. Before you know it, you’ll be cheering him on, but how can you when he’s done the unforgivable?
I loved this book and related to it on more levels than I can openly admit. Take This Regret is by far the best book I’ve read this year.
A.L. Jackson first found a love for writing during her days as a young mother and college student. She filled the journals she carried with short stories and poems used as an emotional outlet for the difficulties and joys she found in day-to-day life.
Years later, she shared a short story she’d been working on with her two closest friends and, with their encouragement, this story became her first full length novel. A.L. now spends her days writing in Southern Arizona where she lives with her husband and three beautiful children. Her favorite pastime is spending time with the ones she loves.
