Melanie Crane has always been the perfect daughter, friend, student – she’s been perfect at everything, in fact. But when she lets her insecurities, the ones that she keeps hidden from everyone, get the best of her, she falters in her pursuit of perfection. Melanie crumples under the pressure and buries her pain. Numbed by sadness and guilt, she is determined never to let anyone find out how broken she really is.
Bryan Mahoney may appear to have everything in order. He’s charming, witty and completely swoon-worthy. In short, Bryan has life all figured out, but appearances can be deceiving. When the landscape of Bryan’s family changes in an instant, he’s left to pick up the pieces.
Not all bruises leave a mark. Now, weary and afraid, Melanie and Bryan must find a way to let love heal their broken and jaded hearts.
OMG!!! I was so excited for Melanie’s book!! I loved every second of every page! I thought Maddy and Reid had a unique relationship…but oh my Mel and Bryan’s relationship had twists and unexpected scenes that I did not see coming! Melanie is so unique and very much her own person that she is a force that you don’t want to mess with but when she does something wrong life just gets turned upside down and sideways! If you loved Maddy and Reid’s books….BELIEVE ME you do NOT want to miss out on Melanie and Bryan’s story! Melissa Collins did an amazing job writing Mel’s story; there is no other way to describe it. The cover alone is worth 1000 words…that image fits Melanie’s character in this story perfectly!! I can’t wait to see what Melissa has in store for the rest of the series!!
5 HUGE STARS!!!!

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.
