Let Me is the raw and emotional second book in the O’Brien Family Series by Cecy Robson, which follows the lives of the O’Brien brothers. I did not read the first book (although now I really want to) and felt that this was easy to follow as a stand-alone novel.
Let Me brings us into the world of Mixed Martial Arts fighting, as the hero, Finn, is gearing up to be the next MMA champion. One of the reasons that he has grown into an undefeated fighter is his troubled past, which fuels his aggression in the arena. The emotions he has buried deep inside benefit him in the ring, but naturally not in the real world. This aggression leads him to trouble and he finds himself being mandated by the courts to see a therapist, which takes him right to Sol Marieles. She’s a family friend, so there is some hesitation between the two of them, but the chemistry was definitely sizzling between these two! Sol is completing her Masters in Psychology internship and feels overwhelmed and fearful that she will make mistakes- especially since she will be effecting the lives of her clients. She’s also dealing with family issues of her own, helping her Mother, who is suffering with mental illness and her own guilt of not being able to help her from the deterioration that comes with that sickness.
Finn and Sol begin a journey together filled with raw emotion and personal growth- along with some super-sexy romance. They share fun banter, which I always love in my book relationships, but they also have this amazing passionate connection. It’s such a “can’t put it down” story and I guarantee you will enjoy every minute- even the scenes that may bring you to tears. Cecy Robson does such an amazing job with this novel- it is real and tragic and painful and at the same time full of light and hope and love, because we get to watch Finn and Sol grow with the help and strength of each other.
There is the topic of childhood sexual abuse trauma, but it doesn’t go too deep into details. For some I know this can be a trigger, so I just wanted to put that out there.
I give Let Me 4.5 stars, it’s a powerful novel- one you’ll definitely need a box of tissues for.
