Review & GIVEAWAY: "Let Love Heal" by Melissa Collins/ Cover Reveal & GIVEAWAY: "Breathless"/ Sale: "Trust Me"

Let Love Heal Release Day Even Banner 


Perfection. We all strive for it, but what happens when the desire to be perfect consumes you? 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.

Melanie has always been perfect, or at least that's what she's tried to portray. Always acting and doing what she perceives that others expect of her.  No one realizes just how low her confidence is and truly no one knows the true Melanie. If ever a true Melanie even existed or exists. What happens though when she makes a mistake that makes her un-perfect in every way?  Assumptions are dangerous things, especially when there is someone out there trying to make you believe things that aren't true in situations that are already hard.
Bryan falls in love instantly with Melanie, but he's been hurt before.  He is keeping things from her.  Combine those things with an ex-girlfriend who wants Bryan back and you get a recipe for disaster. As Bryan and Melanie's relationship flourish he begins to open up.
Will it be enough to save them?
Will Melanie make piece with her insecurities?
Can they heal?
This book flowed beautifully and goes well with the other books in the series, Let Love In and Let Love Stay. I can't say enough about how much I love these books. The stories are about relatable characters, you'll not find superficial women and men here. The friendships as well as relationships are beyond compare and weave a gut wrenching tale. I give this book 5 out of 5 stars. Have the tissue box handy and be prepared to cling to the book until the end. You won't put it down until it's finished.

                     Meet the Author 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.                     Excerpt

Rachel sometimes forgets to eat, sometimes forgets to sleep and sometimes can’t remember the last time she cleaned her apartment but that’s because she is in a long term relationship with her laptop and is constantly writing.
