Let Love In Review

What would happen if you lost everything? If the people who were supposed to love you unconditionally were no longer there for you, how would your world change?

That’s exactly what happened to Madeleine Becker when her parents died when she was ten years old. Ripped from her home and everything that she has ever loved, she is forced to start all over again. The only way for her to move on is to build walls around her heart and keep everyone at a safe distance. Her logic: she can't get hurt if she doesn't fall in love.

That theory is blown to pieces when she meets Reid Connely during her freshman year at college. He is gorgeous and darkly mysterious. He understands Maddy's pain all too well, but sharing his pain would mean breaking down the walls he put up around his own heart. Conflicted between loving Maddy and hiding his dark past, Reid starts to reevaluate his world. Maddy's inner strength, snarky personality and breath taking beauty help Reid to make peace with his past.

Together they find out what happens when they Let Love In.

This book had me captivated from the beginning. I was already in tears from the first few pages. I fell in love with the characters even with all their dark secrets and pasts. Maddy shows you how it is to be strong even when life is trying to make you weak. You can feel every ounce of pain and love she goes through. You just want to reach in and tell her to keep going, that it will all be ok.

Reid, oh Reid! There is so much I could say about this vulnerable, sexy bad boy. His past makes you want to hold him and love him through it, the way he is in the beginning of the book makes you want to slap the shit out of him!! Reid and Maddy together make you want to believe in the strength of love.

 This book has many high points and low points, but it is well worth the read. I absolutely recommend this book!!!
