Let Me by Cecy Robson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Finn O’Brien uses violence as an MMA fighter and alcohol to bury a trauma from his childhood. He refuses to talk to anyone about it and insists to his family and friends that he is fine. But in reality the pain of his abuse marks his soul and threatens to ruin any chance he could ever have at happiness. Sol is the beautiful woman who makes him want to bear his demons and learn that love can heal all wounds.
Sol is working towards her master’s degree in psychology it has been a tough road but the end result of being able to help people will all be worth it. Sol has a full plate with her internship and her mom’s mental health issues the last thing she needs is a relationship. But when fate brings Finn O’Brien into her life time and time again their attraction is undeniable and Sol can’t help but succumb to Finn’s charm.
Finn and Sol both have wounds that need healing. Finn was molested by a neighbor when he was a kid and has used fighting and alcohol to numb the pain. Sol has been dealing with her mom’s depression and suicide attempts for years. All of these issues leave them both broken scarred people with trust issues. For some reason it seems they find a safe place in each other first as friends with an innocent flirtation and then as lovers. Their issues threaten to keep them apart but their love is so strong it is impossible not to see these two come together.
Once again Cecy Robson floors me with her ability to tell a story with true heart and emotion. I knew Finn’s story was going to gut me and it totally did. Throw in all the emotions that Sol has to deal with concerning her mother’s mental issues and I was a blubbering mess for a good portion of this book.
By the end Finn and Sol realize they are entwined in each other’s life and they can’t envision a future without the other. Apart they are broken together they are whole and can face any obstacle head on.
I love this series already only into book two I can’t wait for the next books Feel Me – Declan’s story and Crave Me Wren’s story.
