Don't Let Go - by Michelle Lynn

Don't Let Go (The Invisibles, #1)

 Book Blurb:
 Sadie Miller is attempting to change her ways and hide somewhere no one knows her former self. She only wants to finish her final year of college, obtain her degree, and get out from the hold of her affluent parents. Then she meets Brady Carsen, the lead singer of The Invisibles, a popular local band in the college town. She tries to stay away but quickly realizes that, although he might not be what she’s used to, he’s exactly what she needs and more importantly, everything she could possibly want.

Unfortunately, Sadie’s troubled past left her with insecurities that make her question Brady’s true intentions. And while Brady is convinced that Sadie is the one for him, he has his own secrets that he fears will be their undoing. If they want to be together, they will have to stand united and fight the outside influences that are threatening to tear them apart. Can they put their pasts behind them for good in order to secure their future?

Melinda's Review:

I purchased the box set and oh so glad I did because I needed more.  This is about Brady and Sadie who both have skeletons in their closets.  What I love about this book is that we are let in on the secrets a little at a time.  We know they have secrets and skeletons but not 100% on what they are.  It was kind of like sneaking around a corner you know something is going to be there you’re just not sure what it is going to be then bam there it is in your face.   

Sadie transferred to Western her senior year.  Her roommate, Jessa, drags her to a party where she runs into Brady.  Brady tries to convince her to stay but she bolts.  He is determined to make her his but she is not so sure.  With everything that has happened in her past she has a hard time letting anyone.  I love how patient he is with her and how he fights for the both of them.   

I like how she takes Rob head on when she has had enough.  I love how he tells her how he plans on things going the first time they are “together”.  I also love what Brady does for Sadie on her birthday, their first “real” date, the trip to the farmers market meeting Mrs. Fletcher, who can forget the surprise trip, and then when we meet Sadie’s parents and Grandma Ida. I absolutely loved her Grandma Ida.  I’m not a big fan of her parents or Kara by the way.  When Brady’s secrets are exposed he tries to push Sadie away but in true Sadie fashion she is not having any part of what Brady wants. 

There were so may ups, downs, and twist I had a few lumps in my throat at times.  I do have to say I cannot wait to start reading Let Me In I just have to know how the next one goes. 

Here are a few of my favorites:
“I won’t give up. If you’re not going to fight for this…I’ll do it for the both of us.” ~Brady

Either he is oblivious to women checking him out, or he has the courtesy not to look when he is on a date because the waitress is young and attractive. ~Sadie

“It was perfect, Brady. I wouldn’t have wanted to celebrate my birthday any other way,”~Sadie

“I still want you in my bed tonight. I want to wrap my arms around you, hold you close to my chest, and feel your heartbeat against mine.” ~Brady

About the Author: 
Michelle Lynn has always been a reader, but her passion has become a full-blown addiction since her husband bought her a Kindle for Mother's Day. She's pretty sure that he regrets this on a regular basis. Especially when she has it propped up next to the stove while she cooks, which often results in a burnt dinner. Or when he loses sleep because the glow from the screen wakes him up when he rolls over at three in the morning. He does agree, however, that she uses this gift more than any other he has ever gotten her. She joking counters that, because of some of the steamy novels she reads, he also benefits more from this gift than any other he has gotten her. ;)

Michelle 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.
