Blog Tour Review & Giveaway ~ Let Me Go (The Invisibles #5) by Michelle Lynn

Let Me Go
The Invisibles #5
by Michelle Lynn

My name is Rob Winters, aka, Jackass. Even to my closest friends.

I wasn’t always so arrogant and condescending. It only took one night to change me—one point twenty-seven seconds, to be exact.

When tragedy struck, I promised myself, no matter what, unbreakable chains would lock my heart. If one veers too close or digs too deep, the cruel and mean bastard many hate is unleashed. My plan has succeeded for the past seven years. I’ve driven away a girlfriend and killed a few friendships along the way.

Then, just when the chains loosen around my heart, she walks into my life—or worse, the room next door. She strolls into my house with her bouncy brown curls and banging body, slithering herself through the smallest opening and making me crave the one thing I’ve denied myself these past years.

Her smell, her eyes, and her caring nature are everything I’m not worthy of enjoying. How long do I have to struggle with the demons that haunt me every night before the torture ends? Forever, I remind myself, but the links protecting my heart break each time Paige Kensington enters the room.

I place the package in the microwave and press the button. “I’m a little surprised you’re missing your signature apparel this evening,” Rob comments, and when I swivel around, he’s leaned back in his chair, his fingers strumming along the table. This incredible sexual response comes over me, that he was admiring me going about doing a mundane task. The pleasure brings so much warmth through my veins, I wish he was mine and I could saunter over and straddle his lap. I ache to grind against the hardness I created, as his hands would find my ass.
Instead, I swallow the urge. “Oh, well, laundry day.”
He nods, his eyes moving up my legs. “I’m not sure which one I prefer.”
I laugh. “Really? Pajama pants with absurd expressions are your things?”
Not usually, but on you they are.” My breathing stops before sputtering back up. Our eyes meet and an unbearable inner excitement flows through me. The more I swim in the blues of his eyes, the more he spins me in his web of magnetism. Just as I’m about to ignore my mind’s resistance, I jolt from the beep of the microwave and quickly spin on my heels. Grabbing the bag, I toss it back and forth in my hands because it’s so hot.
Rob laughs behind me and then the chair legs scrape along the floor and his footsteps thump behind me. “Let me help you.” He relieves the burn in my hands, opening the two corners. Steam rushes out of the bag and I grab a bowl to pour it into. We accomplish the menial job together as a team. He’s about to retreat back to the table, when he stops, leaning forward. “I like that I give you that reaction.” He whispers and I lick my lips out of reflex.
Keep doing that and I won’t stand a chance in keeping my distance from you.”
What if I don’t want you to?” The words slip out of my mouth before I can filter them.
Hmm . . .” He places the bowl on the counter and then nears closer, gripping the counter on either side. “Believe me, Paige, you do.” My heart stammers and the edge of the counter digs into my palm.
Then he backs away and goes back to the table, leaving me mute stricken and frozen in place

5 – In Desperate Need of Healing – Stars
~this review may contain minor spoilers~

Guy's like you don't change. Do me a favor and ignore me. Don't knock on my door, don't say good morning, and if I'm in the living room just keep walking.”
“If I'd known you wanted to fuck me, Paige, I would have arranged it.”
Fuck you, Rob. It wasn't about fucking you, it was about friendship, but you are incapable of anyone knowing the true you.”

Ron Winters is an asshole, to everyone – he's an equal opportunity jackass and he doesn't even try to deny it, or hide it. He has his reasons though, reasons very few people know about, reasons that won't allow him to open his heart to anyone ever again and the asshole exterior is his way of guaranteeing that. Being in a band is a great way of making sure he always gets laid, but that's all any woman will ever get from him – and he's perfectly fine with that. No, he's not exactly happy, but he's just fine with his life the way it is... til she moves in.

Paige Kensington has demons of her own. Her upbringing hasn't exactly been a shining example of love and it has caused more than a few trust issues. That doesn't mean that she doesn't wish she could find someone to love her for her, but it doesn't seem likely. From the minute she meets Rob, one of her new roommates, the chemistry between them burns red hot. But she recognizes a damaged soul when she sees one and knows nothing but heartbreak would follow if she were to get involved with him.

Staying away from each other proves harder than they ever could have thought and for the first time in years Rob finds himself wishing he could be a different man, he just doesn't know how. Could these two be just what the other needs, or will they end up causing more pain than either one of them can handle? And what happens when Rob's ghosts come slamming into his present – did they ever really stand a chance?

Our bodies are molded together and as much as I don't want to let her go, I do. She flips around and immediate hurt reflects back to me. That beaming face is now laced with confusion. When her hand reaches out for me, I step back. I can't idly stand around, waiting for her to crush my heart.

That. Was. Exhausting! Messy, tear-filled, drama-packed, angst-fueled, frustrating as hell... you get the picture. But damn me if I didn't love every freakin minute of it. This is the first book I have read in the series (Ms. Michelle just recently came into my life with 'Love Surfaced') but it read as a stand-alone and I never suffered any confusion as to what was going on. That doesn't mean that I won't be One-Clicking the hell out of the rest of these books – I fell in love with each and every one of these people and am now desperate for their stories, anxious to see how they got to where they are now. But back to Rob & Paige – these two stole my heart even as they were breaking it. I would definitely classify this as a slow-burn romance, it takes a damn long time – a lot of frustration and tears – for Rob to pull his head outta his ass. I got it, he has issues for some damn good reasons, still... I wanted to beat his ass on more than a few occasions. Of course, I wanted to kiss him and lick him all better when I was done, but that's besides the point. There is no denying the connection these two form which just made their whole situation that much more heartbreaking, but I have always been a believer in the whole 'make em work for it' romances. The ultimate prize just seems sooo much sweeter when it's not just handed to them. And lets not forget the sexy scenes – Smokin!! When you try to fight off the kinda lust that burns between these two for as long as they do, when the spark FINALLY ignites it's explosive and just damn hott. From start to finish their journey had me wrapped around it's finger and every tear, every scream, every blush, sign, and frustrated huff, was totally worth the exhaustion. If Michelle Lynn wasn't already sitting pretty on my One-Click-Addiction List than this one would have definitely put her there and I am more than ready to see what she brings us next.

This is the first time I want to heal and be real, bit I'm positive I'll fuck this up.”
“What do you need from me?”
“I need patience.”
“You have it. I have my own problems, Rob. So, all I ask is the same from you.”
“New ground for both of us then?” 

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.
