My not-so-secret affair with romance novels
When I first read Let Love In, I had no idea it would end in a cliffhanger. Though clearly part of a series, I had assumed the books to come would center around other couples, so I was a bit taken aback to learn that I had to wait for another book to get Reid and Maddy’s HEA. I truly fell in love with these two characters and couldn’t wait to find out what was in store for them in Let Love Stay. Fortunately, I didn’t have too long of a wait and the action picks up right where the first book left off. There’s a big difference between the first novel and this follow-up. While Let Love In had its share of struggles, Reid & Maddy were very much in the “college party stage”. In this installment, things take a more serious turn and both struggle to overcome their issues to make the relationship work. The chemistry between Maddy & Reid is hot as ever. I loved seeing their growth and journey towards their HEA. This was an enjoyable read and I’m so looking forward to seeing what happens to Dylan and of course, Melanie. I’m dying to know whether or not Bryan will be part of her future!
If you’re lucky, you’ll fall in love – truly, madly and deeply in love. But what happens when that honest and pure love isn’t enough to erase your fears? What happens when your past rears its ugly head and threatens your future?
Maddy and Reid had that kind of love – the all-encompassing, Earth shattering, once in a lifetime kind of love. Then life happened. Old wounds that were thought to be long healed and scabbed over are ripped opened and they are forced to face the possibility that, maybe, they are not strong enough to fight their demons and embrace the light.
Together, they found out what love is, but now they will each need to heal on their own before they can ever be together again. They must face their fears and beat down their pasts in order to find their way through this crazy uphill battle called love.
They’ve let love in, but now, they need to find out how to Let Love Stay.

I’ve always been an avid reader. Majoring in English Literature was a no brainer. Becoming a teacher and instilling my love for reading into my students was also a no brainer. I’ve spent the last ten years teaching and I’ve loved (mostly) every minute of it. When I was home on maternity leave for my third son, I discovered a new genre that sparked my creativity. My passion for writing sprang from my love of reading and once I knew I had a story to tell, I couldn’t wait to get it out there. I only hope that my readers enjoy reading my story as much as I enjoyed writing it.
