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.

Meet the Author

Melissa Collins has always been a book worm. Studying Literature in college ensured that her nose was always stuck in a book. She followed her passion for reading to the most logical career choice: English teacher. Her hope was to share her passion for reading and the escapism of books to her students. Having spent more than a decade in front of a classroom, she can easily say that it’s been a dream.
Her passion for writing didn’t start until more recently. When she was home on maternity leave in early 2012, she read her first romance novel and her head filled with the passion, angst and laughter of the characters who she read about it. It wasn’t long before characters of her own took shape in her mind. Their lives took over Melissa’s brain and The Love Series was born.

    Melissa Collins writes great stories that flow easily. I didn't

    Melissa Collins writes great stories that flow easily. I didn't want to put Let Love Heal down!!! Melanie is a lovely heroine, because she is so real. I truly identified with her. Bryan was a living, walking dreamboat. The kind of guy who could have any girl he wanted, but he saw so much more in Melanie than she ever saw in herself. It was moving. The plot was so interesting, with Maddy, Reid and Momma, not to mention Bryan's adorable little sister Emmie! This is such a wonderful read! Well done, Melissa!!

    Another amazing book! This is a story about Melanie and Bryan.

    Another amazing book!

    This is a story about Melanie and Bryan. Their attraction is instant. I really connected with Melanie. She is so real. The past and present story line was interesting. I think this one was my favorite among the three, because we learn we have to love ourselves first and than everyone else.

    Wonderfully done!

    Love it!

    I loved this story. I really liked that the lead female character was a "curvy" size 16. Being a "curvy" size 18 myself, I was able to relate to a lot of the character's feelings. I loved that she was able to grow in the story and to accept herself for who she is and being grateful for just bring alive. Great story, has a creative plot with a sweet romance. Self image is a huge problem in our society due to "thin" is the norm. This book really touches on it's okay to be you:) Buy it you will love it

    Shhh, Mommy's in the Bathroom.,.Reading
    4.5 stars




    First things first, I know you shouldn't judge a book by it's cover, but this one is BEAUTIFUL! I LOVE this cover and the story inside is just as beautiful.
    This time Melissa Collins takes us on Melanie's journey. The majority of this story takes place during the same time as Let Love Stay, but we find out what happened during Melanie's relentless partying, Bryan's absence, and their time together at school after Maddy stayed behind with Reid. 
    It is told from Melanie's POV and alternates between past events and current events. 
    Melanie is a plus size girl with all the insecurities that can go along with that. Melissa really captures that "crazy girl logic" down to a t. We also get to see the fun, playful, dorky, and sometimes serious side of Bryan and what makes him tick. Melissa Collins was able to write so much emotion into her characters that you can't help but love them. One of the things that make a book for me is whether I can make an emotional connection to the people on the page, and I very much felt for these people. Even when things didn't go the way I wanted them to, in the end you know there was no other way. The fun flirtation between Melanie and Bryan was adorable and the sexual tension and chemistry between them was hot, hot, hot!
    The supporting characters help round out the story and I can't wait to read their stories. 
    I personally think you should read Let Love In and Let Love Stay, because they are awesome, but you could probably read this and not be lost as far as Melanie's story goes.

    This is a hard book for me to rate. I liked the story; I just could not connect with the heroine’s behavior toward certain things. I am not sure if it was because I knew what she did very early on in the story that made it hard for me to understand any of her feelings or thoughts. It was like anything she said or felt (remorse, etc.) meant nothing to me. For me, I think it would have been better if the story would have not started with the flashbacks. I think I would have preferred it to start in the timeline of August 2012, not January 2013. The book had me feeling anxious and feeling confused about what I thought should happen.
    I really liked Melanie was a regular girl. Not the immediate “she is gorgeous.” She wasn’t supermodel beautiful with the perfect body.
    I will definitely read other books by Melissa Collins. There was nothing wrong with the writing. The words flowed. The writing was not choppy. Like I mentioned after knowing some things about the characters, it was just hard for me to connect. I loved the Prologue. I thought it was written perfectly.

    Amazing

    Where to begin? My usual routine when reading a new book is 'read it quick and rate it'. This however was a completely different experience. While I could have read it in one day a drug it out over three days....stopping to reflect often. To finally read about a leading lady who isn't "the model perfect" woman was beyond refreshing. Body issues are ever resent in the world reguardless of your size. It was great to read about learning to love ones self from the inside out and embrassing it. Not to mention having the love of a man who finds inner beauty to be as important as outer beauty. In a nut shell....I LOVED this book. Its been days and I am still reflecting and look forward to more from the author.

    Let Love Heal is book 3 in the Love series and can be read as a stand-alone. I am always wary when I hear that a book in a series can be read by itself because it can’t always be done but this was definitely not the case with Let Love Heal. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it from start to finish. I experienced so many emotions while reading it and could not put it down. Melanie and Bryan’s story pulled at my heart strings but at the same time filled me with hope and passion. I loved the messages that could be learned from the character’s experiences, especially the one about truly loving yourself first before you can truly love others. I also enjoyed the past and present story line, which was a great way to tell the story. This book had a little bit of everything that I like, edge, sexiness, and HEA. I can’t wait to go back and read the first two books and definitely look forward to reading book four as well.

    I loved the first book in the series but this book is perfect on its own. If you do not know who the character's are from the first two books in the series do not worry. They come up in this book. Mel's story is awesome. She and Brian make a great story of the gorgeous boy and insecure girl who worries too much. However, when she reveals her secret things change fast but what happens to Mel is extraordinary. If you loved Let Love In and Let Love Stay then this book in the series will make you fall in love all over again but with Mel and Brian. I strongly suggest this book. Melissa Collins is the best!

    I'm so happy I could get this. I have to admit before I won an A

    I'm so happy I could get this. I have to admit before I won an ARC I hadn't read the first two. I mean they were on my TBR pile and I had bought both, they were just waiting for me on my kindle. I absolutely loved Melanie's story. 




    Shes a real character and quick to fall in love with her. A lot of women are scared, insecure, and hard to believe the hot guy could like them especially after seeing ex girlfriends. She's not the model thing perfect girl, but I really did like Melanie. 




    Bryan is a hot computer nerd (which of course not many of those ;) But she falls for him. and Let love heal is their journey. How they fall apart, come back together, and get torn apart again, only to come back to each other again. Love can heal you if you let it, and these two eventually find that happy place. It was nice to see some of the other characters like Cammie and Lia, and know that Melanie's mom gets a HEA too. I really enjoyed this book!
