Both angsty and heartwarming, Show Me the Way told a beautiful story of second chances and the rewards of family. Jackson perfectly wove together the intricacies of a man and woman gun-shy to opening themselves up, to the risk of chances, and created a true telling of the steps, both forward and back, of their journey to love. Filled with a fantastically enchanting romance that evokes an array of emotional responses, this is a story not to miss.

It was starkly vivid, feeling the need for connection emanate off of Rex and Dynna who had both been deprived of it for so long. His cantankerous nature and general fears of change struck true to a man that had the sole responsibility of raising his young daughter weigh on his shoulders every moment of every day. The magnetism to him, as risky as it was, felt forbidden and wild…pulling Rynna in even if every thought of hers told her not to. But what was most fascinating to watch was this timid woman find boldness in going after what felt right, in this lonely woman soothing another wounded soul, and how she came into being her own woman–one now brave and strong and free.

Show Me the Way had heat, the kind that went beyond sexiness as was built from the heart first, slowly and easily. The push-pull was crisp and lent itself to creating an irresistible angst that grew with each page turn. Jackson’s always been great at writing emotive stories, and this was no different. The palpability of the characters brought them out of the book, making them feel like people we knew, and created an element to the story that felt very real. This book consumed me just as I consumed it, and I cannot wait for more from this town.
