Once he was broken beyond repair. Now this MMA contender is fighting to be a better man—for her. RT Book Reviews proclaims that the O’Brien Family series from award-winning author Cecy Robson “has the hottest brothers ever!” And in Let Me, it is Finn’s turn to discover how love can heal the deepest wounds.

A mixed martial arts star on the rise, Finn O’Brien dismantles his opponents with brutal precision. And yet beneath his fierce persona, Finn is raw from a trauma he’s buried for years . . . until the day his deep-rooted rage erupts and lands him in court-mandated therapy. Finn’s not one to bare his soul, but if talking it out means meeting beautiful women like Sol Marieles, he’ll give it a shot.

Sol is working toward her masters degree in psychology, and already she feels like she’s in over her head. With an important internship on the line and a scary family situation demanding her attention, the last thing Sol needs is Finn around to distract her. The man is ripped and seriously sexy yet it’s his troubled side that warns her to keep her distance. But their attraction is intense, and he clearly has the heat to see how far and fast their passion takes them.

Alone, Finn and Sol have been fighting to find happiness in their lives. Together, there’s no stopping them as they face their greatest challenges—not in the ring, but in their hearts.

Brothers hot ROMANCE Sweet Truffles

Let Me by Cecy Robson is the second book in the O’Brien Family series and there are crossover characters from her Shattered Past series that fans will appreciate including Finn our hero in Let Me. I love the O’Brien family to pieces and trust me these brothers are HOT!!! While apart of a series, Let Me will work as a standalone and delivered characters who will make you smile, weep, and reach for truffles.

We first learned about Finn and his troubled past in the Shattered series, so I knew he was broken. Finn is a rising star in the MMA world and he takes his pain out in the octagon. A locker room incident has him attending court appointed therapy and it is here he runs into Sol Marieles. Sol is Sophia’s friend and she has this sweetness about her. Sol is smart, witty and cares deeply. She is interning at the therapist’s office where Finn is meeting his therapist. The chemistry is there, and I loved the banter between them. They have danced with their feelings for years since both families are friends around one.

OMG! Robson delivered all the FEELS in a one two punch. Robson tells the story in dual POV’s and getting inside their heads and understanding their feelings quickly connected me with their story. Finn’s damage and pain runs deep. I appreciated how in-depth the author was in sharing his problems. Sol is burdened by family problems but when the two of them interact, the sun shines a little brighter and you can see their pain lift. I love that Robson addresses Finn’s issues, that family and therapy are involved. Some emotional scenes had me wiping tears from eyes particularly at the arena and during an interview, Oh lord grab the truffles and the tissues my friends.

The romance was wonderful from the delicious banter between them to the sweet, steamy scenes that melted my kindle. We see growth in both characters and I loved the way it unfolded. This had a nice slow build to it, from shared confessions to teasing, wicked banter, and tender moments. Robson made it all feel genuine and had me rooting for an HEA.

Of course I have to mention the O’Brien family and their friends. I love seeing them all together from the banter to the never-ending support they give each other. If you love loud families, you will fall in love with this crazy, loving family!

Let Me..read it, own it, love it!

Read an Excerpt

Easton grins. He thinks I’m afraid of him. He thinks he has me where he wants me. But fear is an emotion I don’t allow myself to entertain. Fear gets you hurt and rips you apart till you think there’s nothing left.
I dodge out of reach. He scowls and takes another swing. This one gets close enough to my jaw to create a breeze that whips across my skin.
“Finn,” my brother Killian barks from the side. “Take him out now.”
He’s worried about me. So is my family. But now’s not the time to think about them. I keep my hands up as I edge away, letting Easton think I’m backing down, that I’m tired and need to catch my breath.
I sidestep when he lunges forward, avoiding his next swing and use the momentum to drop my head and nail him in the temple with a roundhouse kick.
Like I said, Easton’s fast.
Too bad for him I’m a little bit faster.
The kick is my signature move, as natural for me as the next breath. He goes down like I planned. But in the Octagon you don’t stop just because your opponent collapses like timber. You charge forward. You show him what you’re made of. And you prove just how tough you really are.
That muffled screaming, isn’t so muffled anymore. The crowd loses their shit as I pounce, my blows nailing Easton in the face until the ref’s arms hook beneath mine as he hauls me off. I back away, my fists up because I already know I won.
I should do a back flip or some crazy shit to incite the crowd. This is it. My time has come to own it. But the good things aren’t as great as they can be. Not with the memories that haunt me. And not with the anger they stir.
Killian rushes in as the medic wipes down my face. I’m bleeding from the punch Easton caught me with at the beginning of the round. I didn’t think it was that bad, but the way the ringside medic is pressing the towel against my head clues me in the gash isn’t closing like it should.
“I’m going to have to stitch you up, Fury,” he mumbles.
“I figured,” I tell him.
Kill pats my back. “Good job,” he says.
Maybe he believes it, but I don’t miss the concern in his voice. He thinks I took too many unnecessary hits. I can’t really argue, seeing how it’s true.
He doesn’t understand that I don’t feel those strikes the way I should. Hell, I don’t think I’ve felt anything the way I should in a long time. Not like I used to. I try to tell myself that maybe that’ a good thing. That numbness is better than pain. But I’m not so convinced anymore, and neither is my family. I try to shrug it off like I’m fine. Except given the way they’ve been eyeing me, I’m not fooling anyone.
I’m scaring everyone around me. And it sucks. Not only because I don’t want them scared, but mostly because I don’t know how to stop it.

    OK, Kim! You win! I’m reading the first book in this series ASAP so I can get to this one. I love that there’s banter and dual POV. Plus, I do love Cecy Robson’s writing, so I have no doubt the story is great here.
    Wonderful review, Kim! 😉

  3. Sophia Rose

    Ah yes, the feels. They really got me in this one, too. Both came from such endearingly tough troubles.

    Love the O’Brien family and it’s great how the Tres Santos clan stays in the picture, too.

    I LOVE this review. Is it wrong that I base your love of my books on how many truffles you consume, and how many tissues you go through? Thank you, Kim. I’m so touched by your words and your support! ❤️

    I love books that have me wiping tears! Dual POVs are perfect to deliver this kind of connection to the characters. Glad you enjoy it so much! I just added the series to GR
