What happens when the need to bury your mistakes blinds you? Melanie Crane has always been the perfect daughter, friend, student – she’s been perfect at everything, in fact. But when she lets her insecurities, the ones that she keeps hidden from everyone, get the best of her, she falters in her pursuit of perfection. Melanie crumples under the pressure and buries her pain. Numbed by sadness and guilt, she is determined never to let anyone find out how broken she really is. Bryan Mahoney may appear to have everything in order. He’s charming, witty and completely swoon-worthy. In short, Bryan has life all figured out, but appearances can be deceiving. When the landscape of Bryan’s family changes in an instant, he’s left to pick up the pieces. Not all bruises leave a mark. Now, weary and afraid, Melanie and Bryan must find a way to let love heal their broken and jaded hearts.

3.5/5 Sizzling Stars

4/5 Sizzling Hearts for Heat

I absolutely loved Let Love In & Let Love Stay and really was so excited about Melanie's book. This book was written totally different then the the previous two in the series. There was no alternate POV and it went back and forth from the past to the present. This story was more about Melanie's growth as an individual than it was the romance between Bryan and Melanie. While their love story did develop, change and finally heal while the story progressed the main focus was not on their relationship.
Melanie tried to be perfect for everyone and wasn't comfortable in her own skin. She judged everyone's motives any time they showed her affection or gave her compliments. This caused her to think the worst of people and in so many ways made life harder for her than it had to be.
While I loved the underlying meaning in this story, coming to love yourself, I was disappointed in the love story. It was still a pretty solid story but I didn't feel as connected with Bryan and Melanie than I did with the previous couple. I still am very glad I found this series and can still give this book a solid 3.5 stars. But rating on heat I still thought the love scenes were amazing and that still earns a big 4 Sizzling Hearts for heat.

Melissa Collins 2I’ve always been an avid reader. Majoring in English Literature was a no brainer. Becoming a teacher and instilling my love for reading into my students was also a no brainer. I’ve spent the last ten years teaching and I’ve loved (mostly) every minute of it. When I was home on maternity leave for my third son, I discovered a new genre that sparked my creativity. My passion for writing sprang from my love of reading and once I knew I had a story to tell, I couldn’t wait to get it out there. I only hope that my readers enjoy reading my story as much as I enjoyed writing it
