Jackson know show to write a second chance romance filled with heat, heartbreak, and tension. Mack has spent his adult life trying to right the wrongs of his childhood and his father’s criminal deeds. Now a cop and determined to be a pillar of morality. Mack never expected the catalyst for his turn to the light side to show back up to town. Izzy was the love of his life, and his father threatened her enough for Mack to let her go and save her from the evil that was his family. Back in town, she sparks all those teenage and hormonal emotions he’d buried deep beneath his badge. And when his past comes back to threaten her once more, Mack has to make his choice once more: protect her by loving or leaving her.
Mack is such an interesting character/hero for Jackson. Where most of her heroes have seemed to be gruff and rough, Mack has a total sweet side to him. And when Izzy’s two children enter his life, Mack Daddy truly comes to life. I think this is a man who was always meant to have a family; he was just dealt a bad one originally. A true protector and not one to shy away from saving anyone, Mack is the lightness that came from the shadows of his past. It’s going to take a lot for him to accept that Izzy always saw the hero in him when all he saw was his father.
Izzy is even a new style, I feel, for Jackson. Lacking zero strength compared to her other heroines. But there’s a sense of immediately knowing right and wrong within the hero that Izzy possesses that made me love her so much. Despite Mack breaking her heart (and her not truly knowing just why), she knows that he is a good man. She takes his second chance to win her over in stride and works to help him see the good in himself he cannot find. This romance isn’t just about tow people finding their way back to one another, its about building up Mack versus the heroine which seems more common in romances. Add in the touch of drama from Mack’s past threatening everything they build throughout the novel and its a seat grabbing ending. Fantastic job from Amy!
