Add Let Me Love You to your TBR Goodreads List:

     We have met and come to love Jay and Coop from the other books in this series, but nothing prepared me for how much I would love their story!  This book picks up right were Hard To Love You leaves off and I found it so hard to put down.  Oh, how I feel for Jay!  We all knew going into this book that Jay and Cooper would have a battle ahead of them.  There was something in Jay's past that kept holding both of them back, but we didn't know what it was.  This book lays it all out for us and, let me tell you, I felt for both of them.  What happened to Jay and what Coop witnessed changed them both.  The question is, can they move on?
     Jay is determined to not let her past hold her back.  She knows that Cooper is the only one she will ever love and she wants nothing more than to commit to him in every way.  She has come to terms with what has happened to her and wants Coop to do the same.  However, every time they get close to having sex, something always stops Coop.  Jay is tired of waiting for him and New Years night she makes the hardest decision in her life and walks away from Coop.
     Coop knows that he loves Jay and he could never love anyone the way he loves her.  He wants nothing more than to breach the last barrier between them, but every time they get close he has flash backs of that awful night.  He is not sure how to more on and he knows that he has driven Jay away, possibly for good.
     Will they be able to over come their past?  Will Coop finally learn to let go and claim the only woman he will ever love?  Will Jay forgive Coop for pushing her away?  In order to find out, you will have to read the book!!  I promise you will not be disappointed!
     I loved this book.  I have been patiently (not really) waiting for this one and it did not disappoint.  I fell in love with all the characters in the first book Trying Not To Love You and my love continues to grow for them.  I can't even begin to tell you how much I was looking forward to reading Jaylinn and Cooper's story.  We all knew there was some sexual tension there, but we couldn't figure out why Coop was holding back.  Once you find out, you will understand but you will also question Coop's resistance.  If Jay was ready to move forward, shouldn't he?  I will warn you though, this book ends just the way the previous ones did, with an ending that leaves you questioning what is going to happen next.  But, please don't let that hold you back.  Will you get your answers to what happens with Jay and Coop, but you will be left wondering what it is that Hunter needs to tell Jay.  Don't just take my word for it, make sure to get your copy on release day!!          


“Yo man, have you seen Jay?” I ask Eli who came to the party with us.
He shakes his head, “Last I saw she was sitting on the couch over there with Kevin.”
My stomach drops. Kevin’s the campus drug dealer. He used to be a tight end for the football team in our freshman year at college but was kicked off the team after drugs were found in his dorm. He’s from New Jersey too, but he lived up north and actually went to high school with Eli in Hoboken. Eli said he used to be really popular until he started hanging out with the wrong crowd.
I drop my arm from around Courtney, the girl I was planning on taking home, and go to try and find Jaylinn. Fuck, I knew I shouldn’t have brought her with me but I couldn’t tell her no. All that girl has to do is bat her eye lashes and I’d cave.
I search the whole downstairs of the frat house for her and Kevin but they are nowhere to be seen. Panic starts to set in, chilling me to the bone. I race up the stairs, three on the right, three on the left and one straight back. The first door opens and some guy is standing there that I don’t recognize, pulling a shirt over his head. I check the bed to make sure Jaylinn isn’t there. I do this to the next five doors; all were opened and occupied but Jaylinn wasn’t in any of them. I get to the last door on the left; it’s dark so I reach around the wall for a light switch. I flick it on and the room is empty.
“Where the fuck is she?” I roar.
I slam the door shut and stamp to the last door. My heart rate spikes causing a swooshing sound in my ears, my body shakes with rage. I turn the door knob, it’s locked. I bang on it, “Jaylinn,” Nothing, complete silence.
Something isn’t right. My stomach knots and I try banging on the door a few times, hoping someone is just passed out and can’t hear me. After a minute I can’t take it anymore and I ram my shoulder into the door. Once, twice, and finally it gives way.
My heart stops, I can’t breathe and my vision blurs.
