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.

Exceptional love story! Loved this book. Let Love Heal touches on the insecurities that a lot of "curvy" women have regarding their bodies. Can't wait to read the next Let Love book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

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

Let Love Heal
by Melissa Collins
Review by Wendy @
Shhh, Mommy's in the Bathroom.,.Reading
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.

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.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

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!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

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!
