From award-winning fanfic phenomenon Sophie Jackson, the third novel in the sexy and emotionally intense blockbuster A Pound of Flesh series.
Life in New York for ex-con Riley Moore is pretty damn good, until a call from his mother shatters the calm: his father has suffered his second heart attack in two years and is in a critical condition. Leaving everything behind, Riley flies home to Michigan for the first time in five years to support his mother and do his best to make amends with his father. He also tries not to think about Lexie Pierce, the only girl he ever truly cared about, and who broke his heart.
When they inevitably meet, memories of their love make Riley yearn to reconnect, despite the pain they both suffered. Though she's wary, and has a secret she’s hidden from him for five years, Lexie has little willpower when it comes to Riley and she agrees. Besides, after all that has gone before, she owes it to both of them to find out if they can love each other again.
Can they both overcome their sorrow and secrets and finally share their life together?
A powerful new voice in modern romance, Sophie Jackson has crafted a passionate love story with unforgettable characters that will stay with you long after you’ve turned the last page.
A Pound of Flesh is probably one of my favorite the series. Each book can be read as a standalone, but the friendship between the characters entwine so beautifully.
Riley Moore is full of regrets. He made bad decision that landed him in prison and hurt his family, so his priority is getting back home to Michigan to help his mother and make amends with her father. But when he ends up face to face with his childhood best friend, turned love of his life, Lexie Pierce, he needs to make a decision of what to do. Their love for each other has never gone away, but Lexie has been carrying a secret for years.
Seeing Lexie again, Riley needs to figure out if moving on from his past is the best or learning to forgive Lexie and the hurtful actions that happened to them years ago.
A Measure of Love is a fabulous read with dual POVs and very cute moments between Riley, Lexie and his "surprise."
