Cecy Robson will once again play your emotions like a concert pianist in her latest novel in the O’Brien Family series. Let Me blends romance with the serious subject of mental health and trauma. She shows us that love can’t solve your problem but it can give you the strength to fight and also bring a light into your life to help you survive when you feel all is lost.
In Let Me, Finn and Sol are dragged through emotional trauma dealing with a level of pain which can only be brought about by our own mental struggles.
Finn “The Fury” O’Brien has been training for a shot at the MMA title and he is finally working his way up to a championship tournament. He should be on top of the world with joy, but each day his disconnect from his own emotions grows. His fights should be an outlet from the anger inside him, but the more he fights the more his rage builds. When Finn seriously hurts another fighter, he is forced to seek therapy for his anger issues. Finn never expected to walk in the office to find the only woman he has had more than a fleeting interest in doing her psychology internship. Finn hasn’t been able to open up about his dark past to his therapist, but he finds Sol’s quiet nature just the balm to sooth his need to lash out.
“You may not have the degree, or have taken whatever test you need to take, that doesn’t mean you’re not helping.”
She lifts her head. “I’m helping you?” she asks, sounding shocked and maybe a little hopeful.
“Yeah,” I answered, my gut twisting a little when I realize exactly how much.
