Let Love Heal (Love #3) by Melissa Collins
I'm so EXCITED for Let Love Heal!!! This is the third book in the Love Series which I've read the first two books Let Love In and Let Love Stay. Both of those books were beyond fantastic! I will post the links for both review's below! Now it's time to learn a little more about Let Love Heal.
***Let Love Heal can be read as a standalone, but it will contain spoilers to the first two books. Let Love Heal follows the story of Melanie, Maddy’s (the main character from the first two books) best friend.**
Something about this one is screaming KLEENEX to me! Believe me that's a GREAT thing! I love me some angst-y reading! Melanie has put up the Prologue to Let Love Heal on her Wattpad page and I recommend you check it out ~ I did so and it made me want MORE like NOW but here you can judge that for yourself by following this link: http://www.wattpad.com/25653055-let-love-heal-prologue#.Uj-DxoasiSo
Let Love Heal is scheduled to be released sometime this month! To add it to your Goodreads TBR click here: http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/18148888-let-love-heal
Even though Let Love Heal can be read as a standalone I highly recommend that you read the first two books in this series as the author points out it Let Love Heal will contain spoilers of the first two books! The first two books are so amazing that I personally want everyone to read them before you jump on Let Love Heal. So here's all the information you need to get right on with reading Let Love In & Let Love Stay.
Let Love In (Love, #1)
Synopsis for Let Love In:
Snippet of Maddy and Reid’s first encounter from Let Love In:
There was a group playing quarters on the island and another group lining up shots on the breakfast bar – so not my scene. I just shrugged my shoulders, opened the door, pulled out a bottle of water and, when I turned around to walk back outside, I face-planted into a wall of solid muscle.
"Hand me one?" His voice was smooth and... gruff at the same time. Red-faced, I turned back around and got him his water, glad for the cool respite that the opened refrigerator door offered.
"Here you go." I could not peel my eyes away from his mouth as he moved the bottle to his lips. They were perfect - beautiful and full in a completely masculine way. I watched, completely fascinated, as his throat moved, downing the water in three or four large gulps. He wiped his mouth with his forearm and I couldn’t help but let my eyes travel up the rest of his arm to his biceps and shoulders – those were the same as his lips – perfect. Amazingly, gorgeously, utterly, divinely perfect. Muscled and tanned, his arms were mouthwatering.
My knees wobbled. My heart thudded. Thousands of butterflies spread their wings in my belly.
"Thanks…" he stared blankly at my face for a minute and I couldn't help but wondering if he liked what he saw. He cleared his throat and roused me from my little daydream where the gorgeous boy is mesmerized by the maybe-a-little-above-average looking girl. That’s when I realized he was asking for my name.
"Maddy. Sorry, my name’s Maddy." I nearly choked on my tongue to get my freaking name out.

Let Love Stay (Love, #2)
Synopsis For Let Love Stay:
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.
Excerpt from Let Love Stay:
I get out of the truck and walk over towards the two of them. Maddy’s back is to me as I approach her and her date, so she doesn’t see me right away. But once the guy sees me, she spins around to look at what has caught his eye.
Her face is shocked and when our eyes lock, my heart skips a beat. There’s a pull between us. As much as I hate to admit it, she owns me. Her eyes are magical. They dance with light and passion and when she looks at me, they are filled with love.
The love and passion that are sparkling in her emerald green eyes evaporate when she realizes the scene that I’ve just stumbled upon. I can only imagine what’s going through her mind, but I’m sure the images of me kicking Logan’s ass are flashing vividly through her mind.
I’m no more than a few feet from them when the guy pushes Maddy behind him to protect her from what he perceives as a threat. He’s not very far from the truth, but she’s not the one who needs protecting.
Menacingly close now, he pipes up. "Who the fuck are you? What do you want?" Okay, I’ll give the prick a little bit of credit for trying to stand up to me, but he has no clue what he’s competing against here.
The caveman in me wants to deck this guy and drag Maddy into a bed – any bed – and claim her, repeatedly, until she understands that she’s mine and no one else’s. I’m going to do that anyway, but hopefully I can refrain from knocking this guy on his ass. I’d like to have the use of my hands tonight.
My eyes never leave Maddy’s, but my words are directed at him. "Me? I’m the boyfriend, asshole." Maddy’s eyes widen slightly as I say "boyfriend." Did she really think we ever broke up?
I avert my gaze from Maddy for a minute to stare this douchebag down. "And who the fuck do you think you are?" He falters, not enough that most people would notice, but I’m in predator mode. I see his throat work hard to swallow past the newly formed fear. His pupils dilate slightly and the pulse beating in his neck picks up as adrenaline surges through him. If he thinks he’s going to win this battle, he is wrong – so fucking wrong.
He puffs out his chest as he says, "I’m Maddy’s date for tonight." He snickers lightly as he says, "You know? She never mentioned a boyfriend when I asked her out. Must not be much of a boyfriend if she doesn’t even mention you." He swells with pride at his snarky little quip. In the split second he looks away from me to gauge Maddy’s approval, I lay him flat on the ground as I drop my shoulder into his gut and take his legs out from underneath him with one of my own. I freaking love my takedown skills. I didn’t even have to bust up my hands. I’m definitely going to need them in a little bit.
I straddle over him and pull him up by the collar. "Whether she mentioned me or not, she’s mine, so lay the fuck off. Got it?"
Maddy still hasn’t said a word and I haven’t actually spoken directly to her. I’m pretty sure she understands my actions though. Wordlessly, I reach my hand out to her. This is her chance. If she still wants me, then she’ll come with me. This is who I am, who I’ve always been. If she can’t understand that I love her, that I want her more than anything, then it’s not because I haven’t tried as hard as I possibly could to prove it to her.
Hand still outstretched, I look her directly in the eyes, as I try to convey everything that I’m thinking, that I’m feeling. In what feels like an act of God, she understands me and laces her hand in mine.
Now I really want to go back and read both books before Let Love Heal comes out! If you would like to read my review of Let Love Stay just follow this link: http://www.goodreads.com/review/show/637133295

~ About the Author ~
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.
