#REVIEW of The Love Series by @MCollinsAuthor

Let Love In (The Love Series #1) by Melissa Collins is the beginning of a beautiful future.

BLURB
What would happen if you lost everything? If the people who were supposed to love you unconditionally
were no longer there for you, how would your world change?

Madeleine Becker lost everything when her parents died when she was ten years old. Ripped from her home and everything that she has ever loved, she is forced to start all over again. The only way for her to move on is to build walls around her heart and keep everyone at a safe distance. Her logic: she can't get hurt if she doesn't fall in love.

That theory is blown to pieces when she meets Reid Connely during her freshman year at college. He is gorgeous and darkly mysterious. He understands Maddy's pain all too well, but sharing his pain would mean breaking down the walls he put up around his own heart. Conflicted between loving Maddy and hiding his dark past, Reid starts to reevaluate his world. Maddy's inner strength, snarky personality and breath taking beauty help Reid to make peace with his past.

Together they find out what happens when they let love in.

REVIEW
Fans of New Adult Romance will adore this series. First-time author, Melissa Collins, does it well.

Two broken characters, afraid of loving but scared to be alone, find one another and there's an instant connection they fight. Reid is a character readers will both love and hate. At times, he's abundantly sweet and then he gets scared and runs. Maddy is seeking connection after so long of feeling alone and is hurt by his immediate rejection. Then circumstance slowly brings them together and they overcome hurdle after hurdle as the story flows smoothly, making it an easy read. Reid and Maddy's story will capture readers but BEWARE: it ends in a cliffhanger so be ready to buy the next book right away.

RATING
4 Chocolate-Dipped Strawberries


Let Love Stay (The Love Series #2) by Melissa Collins gives readers the rest of Reid and Maddy's beautiful love story.

BLURB
If you’re lucky, you’ll fall in love – truly, madly and deeply in love. But what happens when that honest and
pure love isn’t enough to erase your fears? What happens when your past rears its ugly head and threatens your future?

Maddy and Reid had that kind of love – the all-encompassing, Earth shattering, once in a lifetime kind of love. Then life happened. Old wounds that were thought to be long healed and scabbed over are ripped opened and they are forced to face the possibility that, maybe, they are not strong enough to fight their demons and embrace the light.

Together, they found out what love is, but now they will each need to heal on their own before they can ever be together again. They must face their fears and beat down their pasts in order to find their way through this crazy uphill battle called love.

They’ve let love in, but now, they need to find out how to Let Love Stay.

REVIEW
Fans of New Adult Romance will adore this series. First-time author, Melissa Collins, does it well.

This sequel is perfect, It's continues the story but takes on a life of it's own. With the characters broken at the end of the first book -although closer than when it all began- readers immediately see Reid and Maddy dealing with their new reality on their own terms. New characters have been injected into the story and play a major role in the healing that allows Reid and Maddy to move forward with one another. Where I went back and forth with Reid in book one, he completely stole my heart in this book. He couldn't be any more perfect for Maddy who is the prime example of a strong young woman. These two deserve the happiness they've found. I was smiling when I finished reading Let Love Stay.

RATING
4 Chocolate-Dipped Strawberries


The series will be continuing with Let Love Heal, a story focused on Maddy's BFF and her HEA. Watch for it to come soon! I'll review it as soon as I can.
