(Let Me Love You is the fourth novel in the Love Series)




“Yo man, have you seen Jay?” I ask Eli who came to the party with us.

He shakes his head, “Last I saw she was sitting on the couch over there with Kevin.”

My stomach drops. Kevin’s the campus drug dealer. He used to be a tight end for the football team in our freshman year at college but was kicked off the team after drugs were found in his dorm. He’s from New Jersey too, but he lived up north and actually went to high school with Eli in Hoboken. Eli said he used to be really popular until he started hanging out with the wrong crowd.

I drop my arm from around Courtney, the girl I was planning on taking home, and go to try and find Jaylinn. Fuck, I knew I shouldn’t have brought her with me but I couldn’t tell her no. All that girl has to do is bat her eye lashes and I’d cave.

I search the whole downstairs of the frat house for her and Kevin but they are nowhere to be seen. Panic starts to set in, chilling me to the bone. I race up the stairs, three on the right, three on the left and one straight back. The first door opens and some guy is standing there that I don’t recognize, pulling a shirt over his head. I check the bed to make sure Jaylinn isn’t there. I do this to the next five doors; all were opened and occupied but Jaylinn wasn’t in any of them. I get to the last door on the left; it’s dark so I reach around the wall for a light switch. I flick it on and the room is empty.

“Where the fuck is she?” I roar.

I slam the door shut and stamp to the last door. My heart rate spikes causing a swooshing sound in my ears, my body shakes with rage. I turn the door knob, it’s locked. I bang on it, “Jaylinn,” Nothing, complete silence.

Something isn’t right. My stomach knots and I try banging on the door a few times, hoping someone is just passed out and can’t hear me. After a minute I can’t take it anymore and I ram my shoulder into the door. Once, twice, and finally it gives way.

My heart stops, I can’t breathe and my vision blurs.

 
This series just keeps getting better and better each time I read it. I seriously feel like I already know the characters personally. 

Hard to Love You (Love Series Book 3, Maison and Hailey) ended with Cooper, who doesn’t have any choice but to divulge an information that might affect his relationship with Jaylinn. 

It turned out okay in this book, but Cooper is still wary of wanting Jaylinn. Every time he sees Jaylinn, he can’t keep out the terrorizing image that happened that night. He thinks Jaylinn might freak out if something happens between them and she might not be able to cope up. But the problem lies with Cooper. 

Jaylinn is ready to take her relationship with Cooper to the next level, but something is stopping Cooper. She couldn’t take it anymore. They’re basically living together but every time, things between got a little too hot, Cooper backs out. She decided to call her girlfriends and do an Operation Seduce Cooper. 

And naughty wives like Hailey and Mackenzie just have the right place in mind to start getting Jaylinn ready.


LOL! What did you expect? But did it work? Nah uh. Cooper was like.




With her virginity still intact, and her self-esteem almost hitting the bottom, she called it quits, went back home and avoided Cooper at all costs. 

In the end, it was clear that it was Cooper, who realized that he was the problem. He was so caught up in the past that he was not able to move on. I guess one of the factors was that he let his guilt eat him away. There are circumstances when you don’t have any choice but to give in to the urge of revealing or sharing a very private secret to a close friend. It may breach your promise but, in the end, it may be the only way to lift the chip on your shoulder. It’s so difficult to live on guilt. 

It was quite clear that Jaylinn and Cooper are it for each other, but it seems like a storm is brewing in the distance. It was quite evident in the ending. Now, I’m really curious as to what Hunter is going to say to Jaylinn. Please let it not be a serious problem, because Coop and Jay are still in the process of finally being together. 

This book is fun and I can’t wait to read the next book in this series. I love Megan Smith!
