I just feel like giving this book five stars for the mere fact that I wanna visit MS House and slap her face, this book was so good. Fabulous, engaging, almost soap-opera level drama but written on a higher plane. Alexandria always delivers a great story. Get this one and treat your face to a good book.

Bossy, a little rough, just the right amount of nasty, and the sweetest things. These brothers fall hard and love harder.
I really liked Kim, too. I had no idea what her association was with Armand, and when it was revealed, I was floored. She deserved every bit of happiness for all the pain, struggle and sacrifice that she's lived through. The pacing of the story was really good and the characters were, well, some characters, lol.
This story takes you through just about every emotion. And all the bombs that were dropped! I hated for it to end. Can't get a good read on either of the twins, so I'm looking forward to what you have in store for them. I really want her to find happiness, too. You're an amazing storyteller, Ms. Please keep the stories coming. Jun 12, Tia Stewart rated it it was amazing. The plot twist was totally unexpected and had my mouth dropped open. It was so good to see Leland prove to Kim that she was worth loving and fighting for.
And I loved catching up with the other McClain's. Excited about the new development and can't wait for more from this family. Jul 27, Byron Washington rated it it was amazing Shelves: So, so, so good. Alexandria House is such a talented writer. To author a compelling sports themed love story, while seamlessly and deftly tackling the important issue of domestic violence in a humane and thoughtful manner was very impressive, and in my opinion made a good book a great book.
Jun 18, Nette Fields rated it it was amazing. Sooooo good Leland and Kim That hurt my heart. And her damn mama Ev always with the jokes. All that drama but their love was beautiful. Jun 17, Deirdre Davis rated it it was amazing. McClain Brother 2 Leland and Kim had a serious back story! McClain Brother 2 was hilarious, loving and cautious without a split personality! He was everything Kim needed! Loved the humor and family. Armand should still be in counseling! A few turns had my brows in a bunch but this is very good story.
Jun 16, Teresa Mcmillian rated it it was amazing. I enjoyed this one just as much as the first one. Jun 14, kristen Johnson rated it it was amazing. So let me start by saying "Let Me Love You" is like my favorite book ever!! But damn if Leland and Kim didn't have me in my feelings.
On top of all that there are still 3 more siblings. Alexandria House you have a gift and thanks to you my pineapple levels stay high. Jun 15, Mary rated it it was amazing Shelves: Loving these McClain Brothers. Looking forward to reading more on the other brothers. Jun 15, Shawnette rated it it was amazing.

Ok, no onto the story. One of the first things we learn about Leland is that he loves older women.
We meet Kimberly Hampton, the director of a community center in St. Louis where Leland is volunteering to be a part of the summer basketball camp. However, these two have quite a few blockades in their way.
This was definitely a page turner, every time I thought I had moved past the drama, I was wrong. They still felt relatable. Kim was trying to move past some of her choices, and become the person she always wanted to while still putting everyone ahead of her even when it was at her own expense. Leland seems to be the most compassionate of the McClain brothers which made him great for Kim. He was patient and nurturing and exactly what the doctor ordered. These McClain brothers sure do know how to keep a story going! Jul 10, Jackie rated it liked it.
There, she meets one of Armand's former teammates, who, like Kim, has a commitment to helping those in need. Kim and Leland also African-American start a steamy sexual relationship, one which often proves emotionally difficult to navigate because of the jealousy of Kim's son who 3. Kim and Leland also African-American start a steamy sexual relationship, one which often proves emotionally difficult to navigate because of the jealousy of Kim's son whom she had when she was only 15 and her own past dealing with familial violence and abuse.
The writing is fabulous; House has a real ear for dialogue and for the way people especially those from oppressed backgrounds use words to attack first as pre-emptive self-defense against further abuse, rather than to listen or try to understand, as people from more stable backgrounds are privileged to be able to do. I would have liked to have known from the start, for instance, that Kim is running her son's charity, rather than having this revealed only about a third of the way in.
I also felt that although we are told that Kim and Leland are both committed to public service, we don't see them doing much of it, especially Kim. I felt that such statements about their charitableness were meant to function to make readers like Kim and Leland; I would have been more convinced if the author had actually shown them doing such public service more often than they were in the course of the story.
The big reveal at the end was fascinating; I hadn't read a novel before that deals with view spoiler [an adult child's abuse of a parent hide spoiler ] before, and would have loved to have the author unpack the implications of that more than appeared here. Jun 13, Sybil Pun rated it it was amazing.
Let the game begins! Light it up in this house Although the story was pretty much the same as all second chance, but better than any other series where you have brothers involved and looking for their own family, woman etc This right here was all that and more. Leland was so "mature" and it was perfect for him to be attracted to these type of ladies Let the game begins! He is sweet, caring, mature, badass, medium Alpha, easy going and most of all thuggish with a lot of humor. Kim on the other hand, for such a mature woman, was so childish, immature, ratchet and really at the limit of not being the perfect on for Leland I still don't think this was a good match.
She had so many issues that at one point I almost thought of skipping all of her chapters. Then "unc" was the best of them, even better than Leland He was so funny. But overall what this book tried to shed light on was not only how domestic Violence is not ok on any level, but how other family members are actually affected by these violences, hence Kim's son. He never could cope with what his mama was or had been going through.
House, you lit this brother up! Rosalie Alexandria Sherwood was kidnapped from her parents home aged She was sold to white slavers for the sex market and for the next eight years was used and abused and treated like a whore, She shares rare paranormal abilities with her brother Connor, and when she is rescued, she barely resembles the innocent child that was taken.
Her gifts are enormous, she can communicate with the dead, openly enter any other mind and read the hidden thought therein, move objects by telekinesis, is a Telepath and has Extra Sensory Perception to boot. She is shattered and afraid when she is saved. Refusing to accompany her brother home, she is offered a solution from an unexpected source. A wealthy young sheik Erik Abadaan enters her life, and from the outset, she begins to trust him.
He takes her to his magnificent home on the tiny island kingdom of Pacur and delights in sharing his wealthy toys with her The relationship grows, evolving into love on her part. The sex scenes are extremely well done being intensely erotic without sinking into pornographic.
Naming her Houbie, which she thought meant small one A fast-paced beautifully written piece, the narrative, and the dialogue are very well done. The author's descriptive abilities lead you into the hidden fortresses of two very powerful minds. I recommend this as an interesting and very different reading experience and look forward to reading much more from Ms. See all 4 reviews.

He pursued her and chased her until he got what he wanted. I am definitely picking up the rest of this author's books because the McClain brothers have me intrigued. And what a story it is! Not only did Jo fall in love with Everett, but I did too. The storyline is solid, and the characters are Unforgettable. From sweet Nat to Krazy Esther. I highly recommend Let Me Love You. Just think, it's the 1st book of the McClain Brothers' Series.
Can't wait to read about the other brothers. But right now, Let Me Love You is all that! This is my first time reading this author and let me tell you this book had me riveted that I could not put it down. This book had me all up in the wee hours of the morning that I finally had to go to bed and pick it back up. I had to get use to Jo because of what she went thru, but after getting to know her she had her man's back. They all get what they deserved especially Esther. Lord have mercy I wanted an epilogue with this book.
Hope I can see more of this couple because they got a lot more of story to tell. Jo's friend Bridgett was a hoot. I will be checking out the rest of this author books. Jo and Everett are now on the list of my favorite couples. I cannot adequately express how much I love these two together. Alexandria House definitely did this right.
Everett is mature and has been in the industry for a long time. He married early on in his career and was left heartbroken. Jo has also been through a failed marriage and also has a crazy ex. They have a beautiful daughter together.
Mar 16, Tazzyt2bossye rated it really liked it. I was proud of the stance that the mom and Renee finally took for themselves. Angela and Ryan's story was romanticism at its best. A very easy rating of 5 stars. Jo has also been through a failed marriage and also has a crazy ex.
Jo feels she is destined to raise her daughter and spend the rest of her life alone because of the hurt and betrayal she suffered from the crazy ex. She is also instantly attracted to Everett but is afraid to pursue a relationship with a rapper, and for good reason. I love that the two got together quickly but let their relationship progress slowly.
I love that Everett was strong enough to help them both get through the rough patches and that Jo showed her strength when Everett needed it the most. This was a solid love story with developed characters and an intriguing plot. See all reviews. Most recent customer reviews. Published 2 days ago. Published 4 days ago. Published 7 days ago.
