Lead Me Home (Fight For Me #3) by AL Jackson

Fourteen years ago, my life changed forever.

My sister disappeared. That day I was selfish. That day I chose myself over her. And that day, I lost everything. 

Including Nikki Walters. 

She's the girl I’ve loved my whole life. She’s gorgeous. Caring. Every single thing I’ve ever wanted but denied myself. She was my sister’s best friend, and I destroyed any chance of keeping her. 

When her safety is threatened, I have a second chance to do the right thing. But as soon as she moves in, I want her in all the wrong ways. 

All it takes is a brush of her hand, and I’m losing all control.

The fire between us is only burning hotter.

But neither of us saw what was coming. 

And it just might be Nikki Walters who destroys me in the end.

Nikki and Ollie broke my heart.

It sucks that Ollie feels like he was so responsible for the disappearance of his sister. He was way harder on himself than he should have been. He was a kid. He was doing what all kids do. And, he makes all the mistakes you’d expect from a guy his age.

I loved the connection that Ollie and Nikki had from the day they met. It was sweet and innocent and incredibly deep. That boy took his obligations seriously. The little snippets from their childhood were perfect and you really felt like you grew up with them. It killed me that he felt like he failed at the one thing he was supposed to do above all others. And, even though I get why his parents reacted the way they did…fuck them.

Nikki had way more patience and understanding than I would have. She loved the fuck out of that man and to stand by and watch him turn to everyone but her just gutted me. I wanted to shake him and force him to see what he was missing.

I knew that Nikki and Ollie’s story was going to be rough. And, I thought it might be my favorite even before I read it. But, it had a lot to live up to after Follow Me Backbecause I kind of fell in love with Kale and Hope. I can’t say that Lead Me Homewas my favorite because now I can’t make a choice between the two. I’m so glad I don’t have to choose….I can love both equally.
