Never Look Back by A. L. Jackson Book Review

Blurb

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…

Triggers

Jackson always has a trigger warning list on her website but it was not in my e-book. I’ve listed the triggers that I observed, which weren’t necessarily included in her list on her website. Though she does let you know about the nature of her book before the book begins and from the blurb, some of these situations can be deduced, others definitely would not have been.

  • Abortion
  • Abusive Relationship (not between main characters)
  • Assault
  • Attempted Murder
  • Cheating
  • Death
  • Gambling
  • Gun Violence / Guns
  • Hostages
  • Murder
  • Needles
  • Pregnancy
  • Profanity
  • Sexually Explicit Scenes
  • Smoking
  • Violence

Blurb

I don’t want to hurt him—I just want to punish him.

It’s bad enough being the only female owner of the Salacious Players’ Club, but I’m also the only one without a kink, or so I thought.

Imagine my surprise when the kink quiz suggests that I’m not so vanilla after all. 

In fact, I’m a lot more like Emerson Grant than I thought.

Just one problem—I have no idea how to be a Domme.

That is, until the app matches me with someone willing to help me learn. 

He’s too young for me.

Too stubborn. Too good looking. 

And, oh yeah, my friend’s son.

Beau Grant is a brat. I’d hate that about him if I didn’t love punishing him so much. 

Underneath all of that attitude is a man who is misunderstood, selfless, and in need of direction.

But if he wants mercy, he has to earn it. 


There are a million reasons why I should stay away, but I’m tired of doing what everyone thinks I should do.

I finally know what I want, and I’m ready to take what’s mine.

Triggers / Content Warning

This book does get rather dark and anyone who considers themselves to be a sensitive reader should maybe skip this one. She does give a note at the beginning of the book that has a general disclosure. If you need specific triggers I’d say theses apply to this story:

  • Alcohol
  • Assault
  • Blood
  • BDSM
  • Cheating
  • Child abuse (brief mentioning/aluded)
  • Divorce (brief mentioning not between main characters)
  • Homophobia (brief mentioning)
  • Misogyny
  • Profanity
  • Sexually Explicit Scenes
  • Violence
