A profound love story that will jerk all of your chains. Alana Sharp met her soulmate when Roland Casey practiced patience and refused to let her live in misery. Not only did this man swoon over her, he knew that she would be worth the wait and that she would be his forever! Awesome read and Ms. Schuster has done it once again!

As with book one I am all into the story and here come the dogs, thus my interest is lost. The love story, romance, are lost when the people spend more time talking to and about the dogs than they do communicating with each other and trying to solve the problem.

Not sure if I will read the next two book in the series .

Let Me Hold You is the second book in Melanie Schuster's Friends & Lovers series, following Poetry Man.

"Let Me Hold You" is another reason Melanie Schuster remains in the top five of my favorite romance writers. This is the third book in her Friends and Family series and I was not disappointed.

Losing her soul mate in a tragic accident Alana now has a second chance at love. Take a read to see how Roland accomplishes the task of wooing her.

Let Me Hold You

I absolutely loved the story of Alana and Roland. These books make you feel that there is your perfect match just out there somewhere waiting. I recommend this book to everyone who loves romance novels.

My heart ached for Alana from the beginning she wanted to be so strong and independent. Thinking that she didn't need love in her life again, Roland Casey is the right man to show her that love is better the second time around. Great job Melanie Schuster.
