Michelle Lynn did it
again… I fell in love with her writing in “Love Me Back” then she released
“Don’t Let Go” and I fell in love all over again with her writing.. When she
told me she was writing a story for Grant I was so EXCITED and Happy..
This story is just a
sweet all around love story and I instantly fell in love with Grant and Jessa,
just as much as I did with Brady and Saddie..but in the beginning I was biting
my nails because Jessa was with Rob (the sleaze ) when you could totally tell
she needed to be with Grant. Grant would never move in on another man’s women
because that is what happened to his family when he was growing up.
So when New Year’s
came and they were all at a party you could just feel the pull they had toward
each other. ***Michelle does an awesome job at making you feel the chemistry
between the characters.***We learn that Grants mom died when he was
younger and while she was dying she wrote him letters to open at certain times
in his life.. These letters broke my heart ***cried at every letter** We learn
and feel the love she had for her son.
When things start to
go south between Jessa and Rob ***jump for joy***we start to learn more about Trey ***wish I
had my own Trey******sigh*** Treybecomes Jessa best friend and a shoulder for
her to lean on. Trey encourages her to go for what she wants and what she wants
We learn that both
Grant and Jessa have a past that could destroy the feature. The past they both
are keeping from one another is such a bad time in their life but it’s also
what molded them to who they are. In order for them to move forward they must
first let go of the past and confined in each other and pray that their secrets
won’t scare the other one away.
Can Jessa and Grant
find the love they deserve? Will Grant ever be able to love again? Can a mother
predict her sons feature in letters? Could their past tear them apart? Could
jealous people destroy what they worked so hard for?
This story is so
heartfelt that you won’t want to put it down! Perfection..Now I can’t wait for
Synopsis: Let Me In
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
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 both still want.
So if it’s true that opposites attract, what happens when the similarities
begin to surface?
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.

time we get to the dance floor, we are packed in like sardines, barely able to
move, let alone dance.Rob places his
hands on my hips and tugs me to him while placing his leg between mine.This whole dirty dancing thing is throwing me
for a loop.What exactly are we doing
here and dancing like this? I stare up at him with confusion and he gives me a
cat-that-ate-the-canary look before pointing to the corner.

his crotch.Trying to search where he
was looking, my eyes scan the crowd but I don’t see anything except a sea of
drunken people making out with each other.

when my eyes find Grant pressing some girl against the wall. He has her
cornered while his lips devours her neck and his hands hike up her dress.
was you?” he whispers and chills travel up my back.I automatically attempt to step away from
Rob, but he pulls me back. “Not the angel you thought he was, huh?” he
laughs.He twists me around to face him
and although he’s laughing his comment off, I can’t help but feel like he means
it. Panic arises as I wonder if Rob has seen something. God, did he see that
kiss on New Year’s?

to erase what I just saw.As Rob’s
breath tickles my neck while he sways me back and forth, I desperately want to
see what Grant’s doing.I knew he wasn’t
a monk, but I didn’t think he was the kind of guy who fucked a girl up against
a wall in the middle of a club either. After the song ends, I tell Rob that I
need to go to the bathroom. He places his hands on either side of my face and
starts to kiss me.Thrusting his tongue
into my mouth, he doesn’t let up.It
starts to feel possessive, as though he’s trying to prove to everyone I’m his.
Eventually I push him away and he laughs while I stalk off.

and shaking all the men’s hands, Jessa says she’ll walk me out.

the front door. I can’t help but feel that my time here has gone by too fast

my lips turn up widely in response.

Jessa,” I say, waving my hand.

neck and pushes herself against me.

consumes me automatically when I see her questioning face, but the last thing I
need is her feeling how excited she can make me just from a simple hug.
Christmas, Grant,” she softly says, nervously biting her lip. This girl has so
many different personalities I’m beginning to wonder who the real Jessa

turn around to see if she’s watching me go, but I can’t bear the thought that
she isn’t. The chance that she might have shut the door right away kills me.
Turning the corner after walking through the small wrought-iron fence, my
willpower weakens and I glance up to the door. To my surprise, she’s still
standing there. I give her a quick wave, and she smiles at me before waving
back. When I turn around, I can’t stop the huge grin that absorbs my face.
Yeah, I’m not the only one feeling something here.

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
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.
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

bed to fuck.
