Tour Review & Giveaway: Let Love Stay - Melissa Collins

Reviewer: Bex
Rating: 4.5 Fairies

The first thing that was obvious after just a short few chapters was that I believed in the author's world and her characters. Collins has created well-crafted three-dimensional characters who are deeply human. This immediately pulled me in and kept me hooked.

The unfolding drama surrounding Maddy and Reid was as endearing as it was frustrating. The descriptive detail was beautiful, and their reactions moving, yet there were times that I felt somewhat old. Dang it! Perhaps being in my mid-thirties, is making me a little more cynical?  Yet despite my bouts of feeling a little out of touch with the turmoil and emotions of a new adult, there were many levels that I could relate to the characters and their histories.

There's just enough back story to help remind us about the events of book one, Let Love In, without it becoming too repetitive, and the story line has enough depth to challenge the reader, whilst still enabling it to become a read that is easy to absorb.

Nicely crafted, creatively developed and overall a solid 4.5 fairy read.
                                               
Synopsis
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.


Author Bio: 
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.
