Blog Tour Stop, 5 Star Review, Character Interview and Giveaway for "If Forever Comes" by AL Jackson


If Forever Comes, the final chapter in the New York Times Bestselling Regret Series (Lost to You and Take This Regret).

Christian Davison’s life is complete. With a ring on Elizabeth’s finger and his daughter at his side, he’s ready to run headlong into their future.

Elizabeth Ayers never believed she would again find this kind of joy—the joy of a family and the wholeness found in the touch of the man she’s always loved.

Their love is intense and their passion only grows as they set out to rediscover each other.

But life is never easy.

Rocked by the unforeseen, Christian and Elizabeth will find themselves fighting for the one thing they hold most important—family.


Stacy's Review

AL Jackson Delivers Again! 5 Amazing Stars, Love, Loss, Healing & Life - all of the ingredients for a book you feel <3 "If Forever Comes" is an amazing journey through difficult times in life.

I have loved Christian and Elizabeth's story from page 1 of "Lost To You", through "Take This Regret" and all the way to the last page of their final chapter in "If Forever Comes".

I have always loved getting lost in AL Jackson's books, she captures you and takes you with her characters on the journeys they take in their lives. 

I felt what they felt, I cried when they cried, I laughed when they laughed and I swooned when Elizabeth swooned.


"We'd thought it best to wait. To give ourselves time 

to adjust to this new life, 

to learn how to be the

family we were always meant to be.

But that's what we already were.

A family.

I wanted it in name. I wanted it in reality."
~Christian, "If Forever Comes"

I don't want to give any spoilers, so I am going to leave you with this parting thought...will forever come for you?

Don't miss this amazing series, I recommend starting with "Lost To You" then "Take This Regret" followed by "If Forever Comes"

<3 Stacy

Tamron and I were able to sit down with Christian Davison for an interview, so if you've read all three books in "The Regret Series" please enjoy, if you haven't, please note that there are some spoilers below. We hope that you enjoy it as much as we did......SWOOOOON <3 

Thank you for joining us today at LMR studios Christian, (sigh). I hope you had a good flight to Atlanta. 

“I did. Thank you for having me, Stacy and Tamron.”

Stacy: I’d like to start with a 3-part question: 

Without giving a giving a major spoiler, what are your best memories from each book in your series? You can tell us if they're your 2nd favorite memories due to the 1st being too much of a spoiler. 

"Lost To You"?

“Hmm…well, it’s really hard to pick. I cherish every moment I’ve had with Elizabeth. But I think it has to be that first meeting we had at the cafĂ©. Even though it took me a while to realize I was in love with her, looking back now, I think while I was sitting with her at that little table, I already had. She undid me that day. Pretty sure that was the day she changed my life.”

"Take This Regret"?

“This one’s easy…the first time I saw my daughter. I was struck. There is no describing that feeling. It was like every part of me aligned that day.” 

"If Forever Comes"?  

“I have to be careful on this one because I have a lot of favorite moments in If Forever Comes…but they all take place toward the end. It was a rough road, but I couldn’t have asked for a better ending. I got it all…all I wanted.” Grins. “That’s all I’ll say.”

Tamron: What is your favorite thing about Elizabeth? 

Shakes head and laughs. “That’s a tough one because I have a lot of them. Narrowing it down, though? I think it’s her eyes. Not for the physical aspect, but because I can see so much in them. When she looks at me and our kids…I see so much love in them. I can her worry and her pain, and I see all of her joy. There’s no mistaking it. So yeah, those warm amber eyes are my favorite thing about Elizabeth.”

Stacy: Christian can you name one thing aside from meeting Elizabeth, that happened by chance in your life that changed your life for the better? 

“Hands down, the day I walked into that grocery store and saw my daughter for the first time. Although I can’t say I believe it was entirely by chance. I was supposed to be there that day.”

Tamron: What is your most embarrassing moment?

“The day Natalie walked in on Elizabeth and me in the kitchen. We didn’t hear her knocking, and she just came right in. One of these days, I’m going to have to take her key away. She’s always walking in at the worst times.” Laughs. “Of course, Elizabeth was much more embarrassed than I was.”

Stacy: What's your favorite thing to do in your spare-time?

“Hanging out with my family on our beach. Those are the best kind of days.”

Tamron: I know there is a saying, that some people wouldn't change anything in their pasts if they could because it would change their present…but you've been down a rough road Christian, so looking back, would you change anything if you could? 

“Yeah, I would. I never would have sent Elizabeth away the day she told me she was pregnant with Lizzie. That’s the greatest regret of my life. I’d do anything to take it back.”

Stacy: If you had three wishes, what would you ask for?  (again, here you can tell us if these aren't your top wishes to minimize the level of spoilers) 

First, I’d have to wish that my family stays together forever. We’ve been through enough. It’s time for us to live in peace. Second, I’d really love to see my mom move out to San Diego. She’s been by herself for a lot of years now, and having her nearby, there to be with her grandkids…that would be amazing. Third…well, it’s not really a wish because I know it’s going to happen…that mine and Elizabeth’s love never fades. Really, I know that’s impossible.”

Tamron: Some readers want to know what special talent you have…(aside from being the perfect BBF).

“Well Elizabeth seems to like it when I sing to her.”

Stacy: What are you the most proud of in your life?  

“No question, being a father. It’s the best thing in the world, and I don’t take the job lightly.”

Stacy: Before you go Christian, would you mind my photographer taking a picture of you for the post? 

“Not at all.”

Stacy: Thank you for stoping by and talking with us today. Tamron and I have been looking forward to it and it was definitely a pleasure.
