BLOG TOUR & GIVEAWAY: Let Love Live (The Love Series #5) by Melissa Collins

Who would you become if you lost the only person who ever mattered?

For twenty-six year old Dylan Hopkins, the answer is easy. He’s become no one. Memories of the happier times are all he has left as he finds himself meandering numbly through his now dull life. Though he cares about his work and family dearly, he’s yet to let himself find love again. Afraid of letting go of what he once had, Dylan chooses to keep his heart buried, where it belongs, having died a long time ago. 

Conner Michelson is about to change everything Dylan knows. He’s every bit the bad boy persona - tatted up, ex-MMA fighter, but after an injury leaves him unable to fight, he has to rethink his goals. Having just opened his own gym, Conner can cross his first major life accomplishment off his very short list. Next up: find a man he can settle down with and build a family. Seems simple enough - a dream most people have, but when he meets Dylan, his carefree, easy-going life is thrown into a tailspin. 

Determined to keep Dylan in his life, Conner vows to resurrect Dylan's long ago buried heart and let love live once more.


Where to buy


I have loved the Love Series since book one.  When I first learned about Dylan's story I wanted, no NEEDED, him to get his HEA.  I'm so glad Melissa Collins gave him that chance in Let Love Live.

For those of you considering reading Let Love Live as a stand alone, which it could really be read as (if you don't mind small spoilers for the rest of the series) I will let you know now that it is a M/M romance.   Melissa does an amazing job balancing three POVs in this novel, Dylan, Shane (Reid's brother), and Collin.  The book is written in two parts (POV wise) Dylan/Shane and then Dylan/Collin, so you are never juggling more than two POVs at one time.  This was something I really appreciated as a reader.  Sometimes it gets confusing when your reading along and trying to remember who is speaking, but I didn't find that to be the case here.

I was REALLY anxious about reading from Shane's POV.  Because I have read the rest of the Love Series, I knew a thing or two about Shane that I wasn't sure I could handle from his POV.  Shane's story was even more heart wrenching that I ever could of imagined it was.  Things are revealed in Let Love Live that I did not expect and they made my heart break even more for Shane!

You really need to read this series in its entirety.  The Love Series explores love from so many different angles its hard to describe.  I would have a hard time picking my favorite couple in this series, but Let Love Live is by far my favorite book of the series!

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.
