There's nothing I like more than when two MC who are complete opposites find love with each other. Melissa Collins gives that to us and more with this wonderful love story in Repaired. The angst is there, but so is all the love and sweetness and the wonderful storytelling we've grown to expect from one of her stories. I hated for the story to end!

Liam is a mechanic with a dark past. Parker is a successful lawyer but constantly overshadowed by his oppressive father. When Parker's car ends up with a flat tyre, Liam is the one who has to fix it.

I was exited when I started this.
It's good in the beginning, and after 20%, it went down hill.
I was disappointed this was not I expected this story to go.
There's no chemistry between two MC, except the sex. Oh and don't let me start with the sex! There's nothing new, and it was not a good sign when I was skimming the sex scenes.

The story line though, was good. Liam was being irritable until 60%-ish and Parker acted like a nagging girlfriend.

Repaired by Melissa Collins was absolutely FABULOUS!! I’m a conservative reader… I read the same type of books over and over. I know what I like. But when I read the synopsis for this one I knew that it was going to be a must read for me. What I didn’t expect, because I wasn’t familiar with Melissa Collins' work, was that I was going to have my heart strings tugged in a way that I can’t even express.

UGH, I love these damn M/M Romances. I am such a sucker for them. I love the vulnerablilty of the men. This is my favorite book by Mrs. Collins to date. I love the dual POV's. Dialogue here was fantastic, and I will keep saying it, dialogue is my kryptonite. I am just gonna dive into character profiles because I can't even. (I never thought I would say that, like, ever)

I love, love love the concept of the book! And, honestly, this book and writing style, well, something about it, draws me in. Yet, this book did not capture me. In no way at all. No let me correct myself. The first few pages I loved, they were gripping. But, after about 20% this book took me on a slippery slope.

Gosh, what started my slippery slope, my only issue with this book....was the slow tenacious flow ^_^

Wanted to love this but the emotion just wasn't there for me. Great storyline and some good characters - can't pinpoint what was missing but I just found it difficult to connect emotionally with the MC's.

Found Liam's past hard to read but felt the author rushed trying to tie everything up at the end especially with his family :(

DNF’d at 84%...I tried. I get what was supposed to happen here and what logically I am supposed to feel about these characters at this point but it isn’t happening. Initially I was excited, I felt like Liam had a past that caused him to set up barriers and was at an age where loneliness and meeting (almost said that other dude) Parker was perfect timing. Parker, a lawyer, was used to taking on “tough cases” and was going to be able to alpha lawyer Liam into relationship submission.

This one was an oke read for me. I enjoyed reading it, but it took so long for the story to really progress. Around the half way mark it got better. I liked the heros, but I didn't really feel a bond with them. What happend with Liam was pretty fucked up...and I did feel sorry for him, but for some reason I just had difficulty connecting with the story. Maybe it was just me and it was the wrong time to read this one. 3 stars for me.

Repaired by Melissa Collins is a book about two damaged men finding each other by chance and being drawn together -- almost pulled towards each other as they each fulfill a need the other has. While reading this book I quickly fell in love with Liam and connected with Parker -- and I knew that these two men were going to have a powerful story.

Liam Davis is a tortured man with a haunted past that has made him need certain things in his life. He has a close knit group of friends, those who he

It was good, but I wasn't blown away. Pretty formulaic and predictable, and a disturbing absence of emotional depth considering the subject matter.

Melissa has done it again!! She has written a beautiful and unique love story that hooked me in from the start.

Liam needs to start over and leave his past behind and never look back. He doesn't know where his next meal will come from but he will not give up. He just needs someone to give him a chance so he can prove that he is not just a punk kid but hardworking and trustworthy. Hope was on his side one night when he got that chance. And ten years later he would meet the man that would turn his

Not where I saw this going but was truly NOT disappointed. Melissa embraces romance and it's trials like no other but her spin on an M/M struggle will leave you in awe. Liam and Parker was just two opposites making a perfect whole.

Repaired is gut wrenching and will leave you shivering with a feeling that just can't be put into words. It is about more than the sexual chemistry but the fight that defines their lives as well as change it for the better. I can't wait until the book world get their

“I knew he was never going to be the person who completes me. He was the person who helped me realize that I was complete on my own, flaws and all.”

I do love M/M books and I can’t for the life of me remember why I was so apprehensive when I dived into my first many moons ago. There is something about the connection in these books that melts my heart, everything is more intense and it is for this reason that I am an M/M addict. This was another one of those

Parker and Liam are completely different from each other but they’re both looking to be repaired (even if they don’t think so). When they meet its like a flame ignites from the hole in each of their souls, desperate to get them (and keep them) together. Each of them struggle with how to find themselves and Melissa does a great job of identifying the weak parts of each men when out

I want to start this out with thanking Melissa Collins so much for not ending the book in a cliffhanger. I think I would have died. She has a way of grabbing you and throwing you in the book. Making you feel the love, hurt, pain and happiness. I can't get enough of her work.

At about 35% of the book you get the first kiss scene. This scene was so hot and sexy I had to stop and make a Goodreads update.

I felt a little sickened after reading this book, because there was too much of everything.
I skipped almost all the sex scenes because they were repetitive and boring.
And that sort of insta-love felt too forced and unrealistic to me, so I was reading about this love, but I wasn't feeling it.
And then, how it's possible that a book about a delicate theme like (view spoiler) is so gushing?

Repaired is definitely my favourite book from Melissa yet. From the very first page to the last you can’t help but be pulled into the story. I loved that we got both Liam and Parker’s pov’s.

Once yet again Melissa Collins has brought us another winner of a book with Repaired. I cannot begin to tell you how much this book took me all over with pure brilliancy of the writing of this story.

For Liam Davis life wasn't easy for him. As a young run away escaping from something that was never his fault and trying to move forward and forget, he was left tattered and broken. With the help of a kind soul who helped steer Liam into the right direction life became more tolerable.

This is the 2nd M/M Romance I have read and loved by Melissa Collins. Something about her story and characters just scream truly romantic and beautiful love story. Yes there are hardships and ups and downs with her characters but it’s nothing that we couldn’t see happening in real life. Everything was a real life struggle that many people experience. There is nothing better than reading about 2 characters both broken in their own ways for their own reasons needing to be repaired.

I adored the previous m/m book by Melissa Collins that I had read, so the chance to read her latest was a no brainer.

Repaired is a beautiful love story that I was hooked on from the moment I started reading.

I love a good "opposites attract" story, and that is exactly what Ms Collins has given us here.

Liam and Parker could not come from two more vastly different backgrounds, but that just makes their attraction the sweeter. Everything that seems to be wrong about

No matter what story Melissa Collins writes, one thing is certain. The love between the couple will be genuine and real. For Liam and Parker it is no different. Fate brings them together and the rest is history.

If someone were to ask me to sum up Melissa Collins' books, I'd have to say that she writes romance with soul. Repaired keeps up that tradition for me. With the combination of her impassioned, yet realistic writing, her imperfectly perfect characters, and the hidden depths and soul of her stories, she's definitely an author you shouldn't miss out on.
