Garrett Andrews has controlled every aspect of his life for as long as he can remember. Whatever he wanted, he took, especially when it came to Laurel Hart. She was the first person to make his heart skip a beat and capture his soul, allowing part of his control to slip, which uncovered his lie and destroyed her trust in him.

Laurel now lays battered and broken thanks to Ch

Learning to Let Go (Learning Series Book 2) by Cynthia O'neil

After finishing with book one, I was able to jump right into book too. I was not able to sleep until I knew what was going to happen. Garrett and Laurel have had such turmoil in their lives and deserve happiness; with each other. They bring out the best that each have to offer.

Book two starts at the very end of book one with Laurel making her way back to Garret. Trying to ward off Chase Peterson's, her stalker and rapist from college,

I received an ARC in return for an honest review. My reviews are my own and are in no way swayed because I have received a copy to review. I review as though I have purchased the content and whether I would be satisfied with it.


I still really liked Laurel and Garrett's story as it continued in this second book.

I didn't find this had such a 'page turner' air about it like the first book did, the story throughout book 2 seemed more comfortable and a gentler pace. Revolving mostly around both of th

At the end of Learning to Trust, Laurel escapes her psycho ex, Chase, by running back upstairs to Garrett. Regardless of how hurt Laurel is emotionally, she knows Garrett will help her and stop Chase. When Laurel runs out of the elevator covered in blood, Garrett knows he will do whatever possible to save his relationship with Laurel. As Laurel recovers physically, she questions Garrett's ability to open up and trust her as much as he is asking for her trust.

This book was as captivating as the

I really enjoyed the dual POV. It makes Garrett so much more sympathetic and relatable the reader. This book helped answer so many questions I had after reading the first book. In the beginning I find it odd that he can’t admit his feelings about Laurel but goes to the extreme of getting a tattoo of her. Along the way Garrett showed me he really does care about Laurel. He takes time off of work to make sure she is recovering. After the attack she has a lot of issues to work through as you would ...more

I read the first book Learning to Trust before I began my blogging adventure and I have to say I fell in love with Garrett and Laurels journey, they we both haunted by there pasts and couldn't find it in themselves to move on from what they had experienced before they met each other. In this book their journey continues and they find each other wanting to be with each other and loving one another to pulling away from each other. The second book in the series carries off where Learning to Trust ...more

I have decided that I don't like this author. At. All. (OK, not really, I love her books) Doesn't she realize that I need to sleep, go to work, feed my children...? I just couldn't put this book down once I started it. I will definitely be reading it again this week, something I rarely do. but it is just so good. First thing to know is that it is part of a series and you MUST read the first one, Learning to Trust, before you read this one. This book picks up exactly where the first one left off. ...more

I am in love with this series. The author is superb when it comes to telling laurel and garett's story. The depth of the story and how deep the actual story line is exceptionally detailed and makes just want to continual reading. The fear, love, and expectations of their journey feels so real. You want to just slap these two and tell them to wakeup and live. Other times you see how much love these two have for each other and say they can have it all, but there are u times that y

I know the cliffhanger I left at the end of the first book, Learning to Trust, was bad, but I needed something to bring you back for more. I did promise I wouldn't do the cliffhanger route again and I kept my word. Garrett and Laurel are back and the story picks up right where the other left off, so it's an easy transition from one book to the next.

There's a lot that Laurel will have to overcome and Garrett will do his best to help her. But, for her to open up and "let go" of the past, she'll c

WOW!! What can even be said about this book. This is book 2 and an awesome follow up to Learning to Trust. I loved the first one but I love this one even more. I fell in love with Garrett from the get go. His dominate side and his sweet side. He has them both. He found a way to surprise me all the time.

Laurel is so strong. She goes through a hard thing and still managed to come out stronger. Not only in her life but in her relationship with Garrett. This book will answer questions that you had

This is the second book in the Learning Series. In the first one, Learning to Trust, it leaves off right where Learning to Let Go picks up. I love all the characters and am really feeling a connection to them in this book. Laurel is a sweet young woman who has had a lot of tough things happen but she is fighting through it with the help of her cousin and Garrett. I love that Laurel's brother is brought in to the story a little more in this one.

Garrett is opening up more to Laurel in this one an

I loved the first book, except for the cliffhanger at the end, but OMG, this book ROCKS! I'm totally loving Garrett from the first book, but this time he has a higher level of intensity both in and out of the bedroom. He's your alpha dominant male, always needing to be in control, but when it comes to Laurel, he seems to have a soft side to him. You can literally feel the love between the two of them. Granted there's a lot thrown at both of them throughout this book, which come to think of it, ...more

This was a great sequel to book 1(Learning to Trust) and I am so glad to have been able to read book 2 right after because book 1 had a killer cliffhanger. Learning to Let Go has a fantastic ending that you will not be so frustrated with. The attack as suspected would have set anyone back for quite a while but Laurel is strong and Garret is there to love and protect her and will go to any lengths to have her safe and happy. Not only did Laurel learn to let go but also in many ways Garret has ...more

OMG! Suspense, drama, sex, hot alpha, should I go on? This book is great. Better than the first! Picks up right where we left off and boy oh boy was I glad after that ciff hanger!

I just adore Laurel. Sh is an amazing character. She is beautifully written and easy to connect to. This book is all about working out the issues with Garrett and Laurel with a creepy stalker to add danger to the mix. I loved the plot. It kept me guessing and on my toes.

This was impossible to put down and I am official

I received an arc in exchange for an honest review

This book continues on from where the first left off, and I'm really glad that I had the 2nd book to hand.

This one was more suspense, twists and turns, we still had all the sexiness and steaminess incorporated in this book.

Again the characters were easily likeable and also it was very well written.

Garrett the alpha male, the protector, the lover. This is the man I think we all dream of having.

An enjoyable steamy read.

A great sequel to book 1! I was very glad after finishing book 1 that I was able to jump right into book 2, because I was dying to know what happens. This book picks right up where book 1 ended and we find ourselves with Garret and Laurel finally back together, but they still have a lot of trials left to go through. The book was definitely a page turner and kept you guessing. It was an enjoyable journey through plot twists and turns. The characters are well written and the story line was ...more

Laurels relationship was up and down like a pair of tarts knickers in this book, I couldn't keep up!

There are some brilliant twists in this book and I can't believe I have to wait months for the ending but at least it wasn't a cliffhanger this time.

This book reveals a lot more of Garrett's character, and whilst he's still closed off and controlling I like him.

Very enjoyable read and great follow up to book one.

Dramatic angst, suspense, twist and turns made this book irresistible.

This amazing follow-up had me gripped from the very start.

The character development is fantastic. Garrett and Laurels journey is intriguing and interesting.

I couldn’t put it down once I started reading. Looking forward to see what will happen next.

I loved book 1 and have once again fallen in love with book 2.
I love the through all the things that Garrett and Laurel have been through has only made the lovw they share stronger.
I can't wait to see how this all ends with Chase back on the loose. That was a true jaw dropper for me. I would love to see a series on Johnatan and Graces journey in love. She has a story to tell also.

LOVED THIS BOOK!!!!

Garrett Andrews was content in his career. He was used to controlling everything and everyone around him. He didn't spend much time getting to know others because he has lost so much and he just decided it wasn't worth caring too much anymore. This all changes when he comes to MIT to observe Laurel Hunt to see if she would be a good candidate for the company he recruits for.

Laurel is attracted to Garrett before she even realized who he is. His blue eyes captivate her and she is mesmerized by hi

Garret is devastated and sware he will never let Laurel out of his sight again. Book 2 directly follows on from book 1 and continue the lovers journey. Laurel and Garret are back together but instead of moving forward Laurel is slowly retreating into herself. This is killing Garret because he is watching her fall apart.

Together they learn to Let Go both start to face their fears and try and out smart Laurel Stalker and Garret nemesis from the past, Together they learn more about each other and G

I did not enjoy this one like I did the first book. Actually I was a bit bored. The way the H and h behaved was annoying. The h completely shut down and the H became distant. We didn't see much of the all consuming possessiveness and obsessiveness that I had come to expect from the H. There was a scene where the h tells the H she will never leave him and then in the same conversation gets angry and says she is leaving him. WTF? I thought the h's actions at the end were beyond stupid and it ...more

Still a great story

This is the second book in this trilogy. This book was really good too. Well written and edited. Rooting for both main characters and love both of them. Garrett is complex but totally in love with Laurel and she is mature and totally in love with him but a feisty little thing that refuses to let him walk all over her. Can't wait to begin book three.

I'm sorry to be mean, but when I was reading this I felt like I was watching one of those bad movies that have terrible actors, the actors are saying the words but you can't feel or hear the emotions in their voice.

I grew up in a small town in South Florida and moved to Central Florida to attend college. There, I married my friend, love, and soul mate and still reside with our amazing son, and a feisty, four-legged little boy.

In my books, I draw on my work background in healthcare and business, along with my husband's engineering knowledge.

I write in all areas of Romance from tame to off the charts steamy.
