Blog Tour - Let Me In by Michelle Lynn


Title: Let Me In

Author: Michelle Lynn

Release Date: October 21, 2013

Grant is damaged, selfish, and undeserving of love…or so he thinks.

Jessa is happy, in love, and has overcome her past…or so she thinks.

Grant and Jessa can’t stop thinking about one another since being introduced at a party a month ago. And despite their differences, they can’t seem to stay away from each other either. However, both are hiding secrets of less-than-perfect pasts, fearing what will happen when those mistakes come to light. As they grow closer, they each battle their own insecurities, and neither believes that they are worthy of the kind of love that they both still want. So if it’s true that opposites attract, what happens when the similarities begin to surface?



I read Don’t Let Go (which, by the way, was wonderful and you should read a.s.a.p. if you haven’t already done so), loved it, and was impatiently waiting for Let Me In to magically appear on my Kindle.  Once I started this book I could not put it down. My kids ate hot dogs for dinner so I didn’t have to waste precious time cooking when I could be reading about Grant and Jessa!
Grant and Jessa both have horrible events marring their pasts - things that they find hard to get over or accept for themselves. Things that make them feel unworthy. The first and biggest stumbling block isn’t their demons, but Rob. Ugh.
Grant has been hot since the first book, but his emotional growth in this novel is heartwarming to experience. It’s like the broken parts of Grant and the broken parts of Jessa fit together like pieces of a puzzle that patch them both back together.
Grant and Jessa’s story did not, in any way, disappoint. I love them and I feel like I’m a huge cheater when I say I love them more than Brady and Sadie from Don’t Let Go. That’s a lot of love, people. Their whole story is touching and wonderful.
If you require high drama with a chaser of intense anxiety, this isn’t that kind of story.  If you are looking for that book that will soothe satisfy a craving for true love, look no further. I’m not a crier, but this book had tears streaming down my face. Grant’s mom made those tears roll more than once.

~ Review by Jennifer


My mind races as I’m leaving the lecture hall. Pulling my gloves and hat on, I watch Grant’s large frame walk quickly in the other direction. How can your heart and mind be in two more different places? My heart screams for Grant every time we’re around each other, but my mind won’t let me take the step. Make that a giant leap.

The thing that scares me the most is that he doesn’t truly want it.  I can feel his desire for me throughout my whole body when he’s near, but then he pulls back just as fast. Then again, the last thing I want is to stay with Rob just for the sake of having someone.  I’m stronger than that and I know it. 

Before Jason, I wouldn’t have thought twice about breaking things off with Rob and running toward Grant. Fuck Jason for making me doubt my self-worth. My therapist’s words ring in my head from my last session: ‘You have to live again, Jessa. Go, and be happy. You’ve done the work, now reap the reward.’ Dr. Hinkle was the one who convinced me to leave Boulder and start fresh somewhere else. And that’s exactly what I did last semester.

When I first met Rob, I was scared out of my mind, but I pushed forward like Dr. Hinkle said and let him in. Things were so great…at first.  He took me home for Thanksgiving and it felt as though we were really going somewhere. That he could be the one and we’d fall in love and live happily ever after. Then he and his band agreed to play Grant’s fraternity party and our relationship started to shift. Dates stopped, the swooning disappeared, and suddenly, I’m being rushed through drive-thru windows to eat and propped up against anything but a bed to fuck.

Michelle Lynn has always been a reader, but her passion has become a full-blown addiction since her husband bought her a Kindle for Mother's Day. She's pretty sure that he regrets this on a regular basis. Especially when she has it propped up next to the stove while she cooks, which often results in a burnt dinner. Or when he loses sleep because the glow from the screen wakes him up when he rolls over at three in the morning. He does agree, however, that she uses this gift more than any other he has ever gotten her. She joking counters that, because of some of the steamy novels she reads, he also benefits more from this gift than any other he has gotten her. ;)
Michelle moved around the Midwest most of her life, transferring from school to school before settling down in the outskirts of Chicago ten years ago, where she now resides with her husband and two kids. She developed a love of reading at a young age, which helped lay the foundation for her passion to write. With the encouragement of her family, she finally sat down and wrote one of the many stories that have been floating around in her head. When she isn’t reading or writing, she can be found playing with her kids, talking to her mom on the phone, or hanging out with her family and friends. But after chasing around twin preschoolers all day, she always cherishes her relaxation time after putting the kids to bed.
