Salvation and Secrets (Chastity Falls #2) by L.A. Cotton


Synopsis:

Chastity Falls was supposed to be Ana Parry’s fresh start. But what started as her salvation soon became her undoing.

Four months after losing the very thing that gave her reason again, Ana is back at Chastity Falls. Holding on by a thread and trying hard to forget about Jackson isn’t easy when she’s determined to uncover the Donohue’s biggest secrets.

Jackson Pierce knew he was playing with fire when he pursued the girl with pain in her eyes. But there was something about her and he just had to know more.

Walking away from Ana was the hardest thing he’s ever done, and four months on, he refuses to forget. He can’t. Rising tensions with Reibeckitt Valley mean Ana is still in harm’s way and, this time, Jackson is determined to protect her—at all costs.

Loyalty drove them apart, but will secrets piece them back together? Or tear them apart for good?

Salvation will be earned, secrets will be unveiled. Welcome to Chastity Falls.

My review:

One Jackson to rule them all,
One Jackson find them,
One Jackson to bring them all
and in freedom forever bind them.



That's what first came to my mind when reading the second installment of this amazing series. I was super excited to receive an ARC-Copy of this book and even though I didn't read it nearly as fast as it deserved (forgive me, L.A. Cotton), in the end I couldn't put it down.

I will admit that while reading all those comments about Paul's amazingness were coming up and i was just like:


I will admit that he's nice and sweet, and maybe what Ana needed inbetween to keep her halfway sane, but COME on, let's face it: We wanted Jackson back.

What really blew me in this was that we got to see the things from Jackson's POV. I know that he was amazing and all, but I didn't think he could be even MORE amazing. Like really, Lianne, how much more perfect do you need to make that guy?? 


Where there moments when I was angry with Mrs. Cotton, like when she refused to tell me how the book goes on? Yes. I wanted to skip over everything just because I couldn't wait.

What was most shocking to me? Braiden coming to help. I know he didn't show up out of concern for Jackson or Ana, but I am still glad he was there, because ... well, let's just say Jackson and Dennis are a team, but not exactly a force against a whole big group. Braiden is someone you don't fuck with and in the end, as much as it sucks, we needed that.


This book --- Screw that, this whole SERIES will probably be the end of me. I already know that I'm gonna chew my bottom lip, worrying where this will go, because ... Oh man, this can go bad. Even if no one dies, I worry for the Jackson we've come to love, because, as harsh as it is, I think he could seriously break in the next book and THAT I couldn't take.


So, my rating:


***** SPOILERS AHEAD ******




Now my favorite scenes (the GIFs already describe that):

I loved when he got the dogtags from here. After all, I don't think there was much that could Jackson more complete, but seriously, close your eyes and imagine the following scene: dark hair brushing a collar, smooth skin that you wanna kiss, meeting broad shoulders. And just above the material you see the silver of the chain ... Damn, that does me in EVERY. DAMN. TIME.
  


And the second is when Ana is wearing his jersey. No matter what's coming, I loved that, because it's her making obvious that she belongs to him. She goes public on her affection for him after everything he did for her. Let's face it, walking out on Braiden is the biggest public concession he could make. I am seriously glad she replicates that later on.

Thank you, Mrs. Cotton, and NOW HURRY YOUR PRETTY ASS, I need more!

Yours truly,

Julie
