ABOUT 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.

Review: Repaired by Melissa Collins

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000026_00037]

AmazonGoodreads

Liam Davis is a man without a past. That’s what he wants everyone to believe, anyway. Hell-bent on erasing any memories of his previous life, he knows that starting over is all he can do. Hiding who he is, where he’s from, why he’s running, and especially who he’s left behind, Liam has run away from everything he’s ever known. His plan works perfectly until one day when Parker Ryan threatens to expose his carefully concealed world.

Parker Ryan is a man without a future. Sure, he’s a partner in one of New York’s most prestigious law firms, but he’ll never be more than a failure in the eyes of his boss, his father. Rather than break away from his father’s standards, he finds himself mindlessly pursuing them, in turn sacrificing anything that would actually make him happy.

When Liam’s and Parker’s lives collide, the ugly truth about who they really are, and who they hope to become reveals itself when they least expect it. As both of their lives become wrecked beyond all belief, they’ll learn how to rely on each other in their journey to become Repaired.

Amy’s Review:

5 STARS!!!!!

I want to start this out with thanking Melissa Collins so much for not ending the book in a cliffhanger. I think I would have died. She has a way of grabbing you and throwing you in the book. Making you feel the love, hurt, pain and happiness. I can’t get enough of her work.

At about 35% of the book you get the first kiss scene. This scene was so hot and sexy I had to stop and make a Goodreads update.

I’m 35% done with Repaired: OMG! I think I just read the best kiss scene EVER.. Hot … Sexy … Sweet … I’m loving these guys.

That kiss scene has seriously topped all others that I have read. I think my heart stopped as I slowly read each work not once but three times. There were so many emotions behind that first kiss. Took my breath away.

Liam is one damaged man. Slowly learning his pain almost ripped my heart out. The progress you get of him turning his life around is amazing. How he slowly comes into the man he is meant to be. And all that thanks to Parker. I wasn’t sure about Parker at first. He was a bit of a prick. But as I got to know more about him and read their interactions together I fell in love with him. These two as a couple are the perfect fit. They compliment each other, help each other. I loved these two together. I worried through half of the book that something would break them apart but the love they shared and their different strengths kept them together. Not to mention some persistence on Parker’s part helped too.

I loved everything about this book and the characters in it. Another amazing book by a very talented author. I can’t wait to see what she comes up with next.

Review: On Solid Ground by Melissa Collins

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000026_00037]

AmazonGoodreads

When Jacob “Dax” Daxton returns home from war, he has to fight a new battle – the one to find his place in the world. The man who normally has a clear path to victory surrounded by brothers in combat is suddenly lost and alone. After meeting Beckett Ridge, a bearded tattoo artist, Dax’s journey begins winding down an unexpected path.

Still reeling from events that shook his foundation, Beck has never been part of anything meaningful. Now faced with responsibilities foreign and daunting, Dax’s broken spirit mends Beck in ways he never even knew he was destroyed.

As both struggle to find balance, they are healed by the comfort they find in one other. On the other side of chaos, they hope to find themselves On Solid Ground.

Amy’s Review:

WOW! I don’t even know how to put into the words the emotions I felt while reading On Solid Ground. I mean…. I just don’t have words to convey how I felt. The painful pasts that both Dax and Beck went through tore my heart apart. Then the love I felt being shared between the two was too sweet. Just to have my heart ripped open yet again. It seemed like these poor boys went through one thing after another. Every time they thought there would be a break and things would look up something else happened. I couldn’t put this book down.

This book touches base on a few different things that are difficult in life and even more difficult to write about. I get a little weird when book touch on some subjects because If not written well it can really ruin a book no matter how good it started but I should have know there were no worries with Melissa Collins.

Dax and Beck are to amazing men. Amazing in their own ways and for different reasons but amazing non the less. Though both had different pasts it didn’t stop them from coming together. These two make the perfect couple. The last M/M book I read was by Melissa Collins and I will say that I can’t say this book topped it but it came very close. I loved these two men from the start. Violet was an added extra bonus that made me smile with every scene she was in. The things that poor girl witnessed. My heart broke for her. I couldn’t imagine. But thankfully Dax and Beck were there to help her through it.

This book is a very emotional read. I teared up several times and even had some tears slip out. I couldn’t help it. I was consumed from page one and didn’t want it to end when it did. If you like M/M books then this is definitely one for you.
