Let There Be Love was an entertaining read. A fun setting, a growly hero, a heroine starting over, dealing with the past. It had a little of everything...minus the heat.

I liked Lauren. She's been dealt a lot of blows all at once but she doesn' ...more
I liked Lauren and the way she’s always questioning everything is perfectly relatable. But she seemed somewhat irrational.
As she moves to Alaska to find out about her fathers mystery she discovers that her new employer is a mystery himself...
Shane is a somewhat tragic but mostly bossy jerk. I liked him. But then I didn’t like his big secret. It was different, which is good but I just cannot understand his reactions.
Then there’s a lot of doubt and irrational accusations ...more
I have always been fascinated by dogsledding. The picturesque scenery, the beautiful dogs and the connection that builds between the dogs and their trainers. That sport is truly a thing of beauty to watch. Naturally, I was drawn to Let There Be Love for that reason. However, I stayed because I am in awe of the author and her ability to create powerhouse tales of courage that mix the fairy tales of old with the lessons of life. Ms. Storm manages ...more
Wow what a fantastic read, I devoured the book in one sitting. Beautifully written this the first book I have read by Melissa Storm but it won't be the last I have already reordered the next book in the series.
What I liked about the book:
Melissa Storm did a great job in taking the story of Beauty and the Beast and retelling it in a way that contained the main plot elements of the original, but that didn't make it seem like you were reading the Disney story but in a new setting. Because it was a retelling, I found myself wondering how she was going to ...more

What a cute way to retell Beauty and the Beast in modern times. Our beast is an Alaskan musher who has been injured in training and Beauty is an optimistic orphan looking for information about her father’s past as a musher!
I loved that this was a clean romance. I read a lot of racy romance and love it too, but every once in a while it is refreshing to enjoy the purity ...more
I'm a huge fan of Melissa Storm's and she never ceases to amaze me. I am always saddened when her stories end and I have to wait for the next one to be written.
Let There Be Love is a wonderful story that will inspire you from the very beginning. This story is a little different from Melissa's other stories but she doesn't disappoint you. You will definitely not want to put it down.

This is an okay story but it isn't the quality I expect from Melissa Storm. I didn't really care for either character and can't understand how they could have fallen in love when they treated each other like crap. Lauren got over her initial tragedy without ever ...more

I was a bit bothered by Lauren's relationship with Barbara. I understand the reason for her reaction (choosing to forgive fo ...more
Melissa Storm is a mother first, and everything else second. She used to write under a pseudonym, but finally had the confidence to come out as herself to the world. Her fiction is highly personal and often based on true stories. Writing is Melissa's way of showing her daughter just how beautiful life can be, when you pay attention to the everyday wonders that surround us.
Melissa loves books so mu...more
