Book Review: "Let Love Stay" by Melissa Collins

(Book 2, Love Series)


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.  

5 Stars

"Love is complicated. But in the end, it's as easy as you make it."

"Let Love Stay" is the sequel to "Let Love In," so if you haven't read the first book, go buy it and read it NOW! It's a must! 
However, if you have read "Let Love In," then you know how it ended...Well, this one picks up the story right there

Basically, this book tests Reid and Maddy's relationship in a lot ways. Through many plot twists and complications we see how things are far from easy for them. They both have to face aspects from their pasts in order to have a future together. 

"...just because I haven't been in a relationship before, doesn't mean I'm not capable of loving you with everything that I am."

I feel like I can't say a lot about the story line because you have to experience this book for yourself..... page by page savoring everything. The problems in this book were very real and very well developed. Loved the author's writing style!! 
Your heart will break, you will most definitely swoon and fan yourself (HOT HOT scenes), you will smile, cry, and you might even laugh. So yes, quite the rollercoaster of emotions here.

"All I need is you. Wherever you are is where my home is." 

"You've got me baby. Forever. I'm all yours." 

I promise you, Reid is completely swoon worthy!!!! *sigh* I felt so much for him... For everything he went through. I had already fallen in love with him during book one, but during this one, seeing and understanding those details that made him who he was??? Well, it was just... wow. What-a-guy..!! 

"Let Love Stay" is an incredible sequel with a truly beautiful ending! 
Seriously, do yourself a favor a read this series!! You won't regret it!!!
Melissa Collins, I must say.... I'm a fan!!!

"I know that Reid will always be my perfectly imperfect happily ever after."

About the Author:
Melissa Collins

I’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
