Details if other :. Thanks for telling us about the problem. Return to Book Page. Jackson Rule by Dinah McCall ,. Sharon Sala Goodreads Author. Jackson Rule had spent nearly half his life behind bars for murder.
Now he was starting over-or trying to. Once he laid hungry eyes on his new employer, though, his resolve to lead a simple, solitary life deserted him, replaced by yearnings for fierce, forbidden passion. True, Jackson Rule had paid his debt to society, and was a hard, honest worker. What threatened to undo her was the sheer burning desire she felt in his presence, and the sinking feeling that her heart would be his captive forever.

If you are looking to read a book with a hero who has really, really gotten a bad break in life, look no further! Poor Jackson. He went to prison for fifteen years. He was sixteen years old. I cannot imagine how that must have been. Only to serve his time and go out into a world where few people are willing to look past what they think he is: ex-con, murderer, trash.
I like to think that a person should be given a clean slate in life. I guess that doesn't really happen in real life. I don't want If you are looking to read a book with a hero who has really, really gotten a bad break in life, look no further! I don't want to get into my beliefs about the criminal justice system, because I don't think anyone wants to hear them.
But, I will say that I think a person who serves their time and is willing to live an honest life, should get the opportunity to do so. Unfortunately, that's harder than it seems. For people generally take things at face value, and let their fears and suspicions rule them I am not excluding myself from this.
I was surprised at how narrow-minded and judgmental Rebecca's reverend father was. I do realize that many Christians but not all are true to this portrayal of Reverend Hill. They are goody-goody and never miss church, but do not show their true beliefs through their actions. I was glad that Rebecca tried to live true to his teaching and her faith, and she called him on his hypocrisy. And Reverend Hill is forced to search his own heart and realize his own actions do not show what he preaches and believes.
In contrast to Reverend Hill, Rebecca and a few others were willing to give Jackson a chance. In fact, Rebecca was more loving and understanding to Jackson than he was to himself. He had a huge case of self-hatred! It was hard to deal with at times, but given his awful childhood and the fact that he spent almost half his life in prison, I could see why he was this way. The cynical reader would probably find Jackson's continued shows of goodness a bit too much.
Let's count: 1 Saves Rebecca by pulling her out of the path of an oncoming vehicle, and fixing her truck which had overheated for free. This wasn't an issue for me.
I liked that his actions showed what a good person he was, even though people assumed the worst of him. He was very innocent in many ways. A sweet boy who had been weighed, judged, and found wanting, and given no first or second chances in life.
This book made me cry a few times. I'm the kind of girl who likes to believe that people are good and good things happen to good people. Deep down, I'm an optimist, which is why I do like feel good romances disguised as deeply angsty and sad romances with deleriously happy endings.
So, this book did not fail to impress me. I know that some people will find this book too sappy. I can't speak for them. I loved this book, and I wanted to give Jackson a big, huge hug. I'm glad that he has Rebecca and other loved ones to do that for me. View all 17 comments.

But Andrew Jackson had not survived the last fifteen years in a maximum security prison by running so he walked through the last set of locked gates leading to the outside world. Based on reviews I expected to love it and I did fall pretty hard for the hero Jackson but due to the high cheese factor and melodramatics of the heroine I can only give it 3 stars. And the hero was kinda awesome; all emotionally tortured and misunderstood, riding around on his Harley, looking sexy and just wanting to be loved.
But the heroine, jeez she drove me crazy with her gasping, feinting, sobbing and over the top tantrums. How do these TSTL women keep getting all the great guys? Yes the melodramatics were high here which was too bad. Ultimately I could have overlooked those moments but then we also had the stilted and phony dialogue to contend with. She knew this place like the back of her hand. Jackson Rule has just been released from prison after serving a fifteen year sentence for manslaughter.
Convicted at the age of 15 he lost his youth inside the walls of Angola State Pen. Her father the preacher however is another matter entirely. Of course the sparks fly between our couple, Rebecca knows that Jackson is a good man —probably because he keeps rescuing people from burning buildings, from would be rapists, from heart attacks but Jackson is emotionally scarred from the violence in his past and tries to keep his distance, feeling that his reputation would ruin Rebecca.

The story's been done before, although since Jackson Rule was published nearly 20 years ago, it might well have been the trendsetter for this plot line.
There were times when Jackson Rule, the man, was little too good to be true, and his story started to ooze sap. For a man who spent 15 years locked away I would have thought he would be more bitter, I wanted him to have more of an edge, but he softened up awfully quick.
He was everyone's hero, which I found charming at first and then 3. He was everyone's hero, which I found charming at first and then the exaggerated heroics nearly became too much! I wanted to slap Rebecca's father upside the head! For a preacher man he wasn't one to easily forgive, he didn't "practice what he preached" and his dislike of Jackson got on my nerves.
If I had one major issue it would be view spoiler [ Molly's miraculous recovery, she went from withdrawn childlike behavior, to mature eloquent speaker in warped speed.
