Let Love Live:
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.

On Solid Ground:
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.
READ CHAPTER 1 AND AN EXCERPT HERE.
“How do you let go of the guilt of being alive?”
“By Living the best fucking life you can.” I seem to gravitate towards books about broken people. Maybe they remind me of my broken self and how far I’ve come. It’s nice to read about fairytales, but it’s even better to read about people with real issues and flaws…. To be able to relate to their struggles. We are all broken in one way or another. Melissa’s stories are Inspirational and filled with hope. They give us faith that maybe there is a light at the end of the tunnel.
“Nothing that’s worth anything comes without challenge.”
Melissa’s characters don’t feel contrived, they feel very REAL. People you want to know and wish you had in your life. I honestly believe the world would be a better place, if Dax and Becks were in it. I loved the way their relationship developed. Both knowing when to push and pull back. Their journey was not easy, far from it…. It was tough, raw and emotional. Two people battling internally. Seemingly broken beyond repair. The patience, compassion and support they show one another left me speechless. I found myself choked up quite a few times. They are two halves that make a whole. They need one another!
Add a child and a dog into the mix …. and I am done!!! Wait till you meet Tonka and Violet. They both had me wrapped around their fingers. They will bring a smile to your face and tears to your eyes! This is another book from Melissa that will stay with me forever. Her boys will always have a piece of my heart. I look forward to reading all her books! Don’t miss out on this beautiful story…..read it and live it.
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.
