Let Me Love You is the first full-length novel I’ve read by Alexandria House. I picked up her holiday novella last December and have been meaning to read some more of her longer works.
Her latest release, Let Me Love You, is a musical romance which I’ve been reading more of lately so I decided this would be a good place to start.
Jo is a divorced single mom trying to get her life back on track after a bitter breakup. Everett McClain aka Big South 12 is one of the biggest rappers in the music industry. He’s also privy to heartbreak as he’s divorced though many people would see him now as a player.
Everett and Jo meet when she is tasked with delivering a package to his hotel room courtesy of her boss. The attraction is almost instantaneous but the road to these two becoming (and staying) a couple isn’t smooth sailing. Without giving too much away, these two have to contend with a lot in their newly minted relationship. Jealous and vindictive exes, insecurities, and the glaring light of fame put a spotlight on these as they navigate a love they both didn’t expect or prepare for, but can’t live without.
Jo and Everett have insane chemistry, we were privy to their feelings from the very beginning and as the reader, I became involved in their relationship very early on. While the attraction was instant with these two, the journey from strangers to lovers didn’t feel quick or forced. I liked that we saw actual progression with these two.
Everett, despite his tough exterior he shows to the world as Big South, has an immensely big heart. He continuously showed up and out for Jo and made sure that she knew he was always in her corner. Jo was an honest character who had to learn to love herself again in the process of loving this man who promised her everything. She was raw in her emotions and while there were times I wished she stood up for herself, I understood her a bit more by the end.
Let Me Love You is a story of second chances, going with your gut, and doing what is right for you despite naysayers. Read this when you have a few uninterrupted hours as you’ll want to finish in one sitting.
P.S.I need to read more about the McClain brothers for sure. 🙂
