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.
This is my second novel that I have read by Melissa Collins and by far my absolute favorite. At first I was a bit leery of her taking on the male/male romance genre but I have to say she nailed it. The storyline, the characters, the chemistry and the writing style was absolutely addicting. Melissa surprised me at every turn with this story. Let Love Live had just enough steam, sex, sweetness and sensual scenes to keeping me turning the pages.
I fell in love with Dylan from the very beginning. My heart ached for him wanting him to finally find nothing but happiness and true and everlasting love. Dedicated and trustworthy to his family and friends and put everyone and everything in front of himself. Keeping his heart under lock and key he fears of opening up to anyone and letting himself get hurt again.
Conner is sexy and smart and sexy – oh wait I think I already said that. SEXY SEXY SEXY! Former MMA fighter looking for something more in his life after his career is cut short due to an injury; Conner finds himself opening up his own gym and trying to move on to the next chapter of his life. Not really focusing on her love life much after having his heart broken he puts all his time and energy into opening up his gym until the moment that Dylan walked out of his gym and caught his attention, something that hasn’t happened to him in a very long time.
Dylan meets Conner! Conner meets Dylan! Sparks fly and clothes fly off and everything from this point on is filled with laughter, steam, and heartwarming moments that will melt your panties and sweeten up your heart. Melissa pulled a male/male romance off with little effort and did it beautifully. She blew me away and I am hoping very much that she puts out another male/male romance very soon.
If you are looking for a swoon worthy and steamy male/male romance than you need to discover Melissa Collins’ Let Love Live and fall in love with Dylan and Conner. You will get a beautifully written love story that is filled with everyone you would want in a romance novel. For an author who has never written a male/male romance before I must say that Melissa did that genre justice. Go out and get it now, and fall in love! Go on the journey with Dylan and Conner and discovery if they were able to leave the past in the past and finally learn again how to Let Love Live!
