Chase Hansen. Broke. College drop out. Male stripper.

My life wasn’t at all what I imagined it would be. I should have been finishing up college, interning with a well-respected business, partying with my friends. But instead, I was raising my seventeen year old brother, struggling to make ends meet. Love wasn’t even on my radar. Besides, what did I have to offer? A few crumpled singles pulled from my G-string? Defeated and exhausted, I knew I had zero chance of finding someone to love me just as I am.

Noah Carpenter. Angry. Betrayed. Doctor.

Just when I thought my life was going exactly as it should, everything turned upside down. With my final rotation in medical school complete, I finally achieved my lifelong dream of becoming a doctor. What I never expected was to catch the man of my dreams in our bed with the man of his. Beyond infuriated, I struggled to piece together the remnants of my life. Just when I’d decided to give up on love altogether, I found a man who loved me just as I am.


4.5 stars

I’ve been in a pretty big book slump lately. And I really was looking for something anything really to get me out of it! Boy… did this book do the job! I absolutely fell for Noah and Chase’s story! I loved everything about them!! Especially how they met!!! Hahaha

I loved the strip club scene! Omg! It was so hot and and absolutely sexy! Chase really upped his game with Noah!

“Oh my freaking God. He’s staring you down like the piece of meat you are.”

That part had me laughing! I loved it! I also loved how Noah didn’t judge Chase about his job. He saw beyond that.
And I loved how Chase opened himself up to Noah. He knew he wasn’t in the ideal situation with his job and his living situation. But he also didn’t hide it either. I had so much respect for Case. He really went above and beyond with his brother Benny. Even though it was super tough and he didn’t know how it will all work out. He stepped up and tried his best to give his brother a normal life.

The relationship between Chase and Noah I think felt real. All their up’s and down’s….The fighting. All the beginning stages of a relationship. I loved that! There was never any over the top drama. Just the two of them both trying to figure things out while trying to get their own lives together.

This is my 4th book by Melissa that I’ve read. And I have to say…. I’m really loving the way she writes her books. And I can’t wait for her next M/M book!!

Melissa Collins has always been a book worm. Studying Literature in college ensured that her nose was always stuck in a book. She followed her passion for reading to the most logical career choice: English teacher. Her hope was to share her passion for reading and the escapism of books to her students. Having spent more than a decade in front of a classroom, she can easily say that it’s been a dream.
Her passion for writing didn’t start until more recently. When she was home on maternity leave in early 2012, she read her first romance novel and her head filled with the passion, angst and laughter of the characters who she read about it. It wasn’t long before characters of her own took shape in her mind. Their lives took over Melissa’s brain and The Love Series was born.
