Review & Giveaway: LET ME by Cecy Robinson

Let Me
The O’Brien Family Book Two
By: Cecy Robson
Releasing April 19, 2016


Once he was broken beyond repair. Now this MMA contender is fighting to be a better man—for her. RT Book Reviews proclaims that the O’Brien Family series from award-winning author Cecy Robson “has the hottest brothers ever!” And in Let Me, it is Finn’s turn to discover how love can heal the deepest wounds.

A mixed martial arts star on the rise, Finn O’Brien dismantles his opponents with brutal precision. And yet beneath his fierce persona, Finn is raw from a trauma he’s buried for years . . . until the day his deep-rooted rage erupts and lands him in court-mandated therapy. Finn’s not one to bare his soul, but if talking it out means meeting beautiful women like Sol Marieles, he’ll give it a shot.

Sol is working toward her master’s degree in psychology, and already she feels like she’s in over her head. With an important internship on the line and a scary family situation demanding her attention, the last thing Sol needs is Finn around to distract her. The man is ripped and seriously sexy yet it’s his troubled side that warns her to keep her distance. But their attraction is intense, and he clearly has the heat to see how far and fast their passion takes them.

Alone, Finn and Sol have been fighting to find happiness in their lives. Together, there’s no stopping them as they face their greatest challenges—not in the ring, but in their hearts. 

Laura's Review:

This was the first book by Cecy Robinson I've read - so obviously I didn't read book one in this series, but Ms. Robinson does a great job providing just enough backstory so I didn't feel lost, but not bogged down with other peoples' pasts. Which is good, because Finn and Sol have quite the baggage to bog themselves down all on their own.
Their romance started off as sweet and easy flirtation and quickly grew into something way more intense that neither one really knew how to handle. The darkness from their past (and present) overshadows them throughout much of the book, and I wished we got to see a little more of the light moments that were so fun to read.
Overall, a romance novel that went way beyond a simple romance and pulled you right along through the somewhat dark, but hopeful ride.

LET ME: 3.5/5 stars
