From NYT and USA Today bestselling author A.L. Jackson comes an enemies-to-lovers, close-proximity, second-chance romance...
Logan Lawson won me in a bet.The second I saw him sitting at the illegal card table, I knew I was in trouble.
Years ago, he sealed my fate and condemned me to a life I didn’t want to lead.
Yet he’s filled with untamed fury and thirsting for vengeance against the husband I hate.
Aster Costa is everything I never should have wanted.
The second she showed with her pompous, prick of a husband, I should have gotten up and walked. But there’s no looking away from the woman who wrecked me.
Worse, I can’t stop myself from plotting to get her back.
I want nothing more than to be free of my husband.
I’m afraid Logan Lawson is the only one who can make that happen.
He might hate me for our past, but now it’s me on my knees begging for help.
Finding each other in the middle of it wasn’t supposed to be part of the bargain.
But once Logan touches me, I’m gone. A torch is rekindled. A fire is lit.
Aster Costa has always been mine.
And this time, no matter the cost, I won’t give her back...

MY IMPRESSIONS OF THIS BOOK:
As the third installment in the Redemption Hills series this was a romance that was a long time coming. The epic love story of Logan Lawson and Aster Costa comes full circle here, reaching the HEA it should've reached years ago. From the first page to the last readers will find themselves captivated by the love story that once was and the love story that is trying to be once again.
From previous books Logan always showed himself to be a fun-loving playboy, the sweet and charming uncle without a care in the world...at least that's what he showed the world. Behind that mask though is a man still longing for his first real love, resentment and anger still bubbling beneath the surface over all that tore him and his love apart. When he gets the chance to get her back in a poker game he jumps at the opportunity and from that moment on readers get to see a more serious and intense side to Logan. Here he's a man on a mission, a true protector determined to keep the woman who's always been his in his heart and soul. Logan's truly swoon worthy through his sweet and sexy words and deeds and with each turn of the page I fell for him even more as he grabbed his second chance with both hands.
Aster's a woman determined to start over after years in a marriage and a life she wants no part of when readers see her at a poker game where she becomes the prize. Seeing her one and only love gives her a ray of hope, a hope that she can leave all the ugliness behind that their years apart left her with. Their road to HEA isn't an easy one though as it's full of angst and surprising twists and turns due to the past that refuses to let them go. Aster's a likable heroine, one who's been through a lot but stayed strong. She's the perfect match for Logan as the connection between them practically jumped off the pages.
These two started out as a modern-day Romeo and Juliet, meeting and planning a future together in secret. It's heartbreaking to see the early days of their love, see their hope and joy...it brought a tear to my eye. Seeing them as adults you still see that hope and love, this time mixed in with steamy interludes. These star-crossed lovers kept me glued to the pages, caught up in their angsty journey to HEA. By the turn of the final page I'm left immensely satisfied and ready to start this series over again from the start as these three siblings are the quintessential book boyfriends.
My rating for this is an A.
