Synopsis:Grant is damaged, selfish, and undeserving of love…or so he thinks.
Jessa is happy, in love, and has overcome her past…or so she thinks.
Grant and Jessa can’t stop thinking about one another since being introduced at a party a month ago. And despite their differences, they can’t seem to stay away from each other either. However, both are hiding secrets of less-than-perfect pasts, fearing what will happen when those mistakes come to light. As they grow closer, they each battle their own insecurities, and neither believes that they are worthy of the kind of love that they both still want. So if it’s true that opposites attract, what happens when the similarities begin to surface?

Let Me In is the second installment in the Invisibles series, but it can be read as a Stand Alone. It does have characters from the first book, but this is Grant and Jessa's story.
And let me say that Michelle Lynn DID NOT disappoint in this second installment of the Invisibles series. I knew I was going to love Let Me In, because I loved reading the Epilogue in Grant's POV. In my most sincerest and personal opinion Michelle Lynn outdid herself with Let Me In :D!
This one is going on my Favorite 2013 Reads and on my Book Hangover List, because I just can't stop thinking about the story and the characters.
This girl has so many different personalities I'm beginning to wonder who the real Jessa Harrison is.
Jessa Harrison's character is loving, caring, strong, damaged, bold, carefree, and she struggles with a few insecurities because of her past. Like most of Michelle Lynn's character's, Jessa has a secret from her past. The secret Jessa is hiding is the reason why she left her hometown and the college she was previously attending to go to Western. After reading about her secret past, I understand why Jessa reinvented herself. I personally like the new Jessa, because she is being true to who she really is. She is more confident and comfortable in her own skin with the new Jessa. Her character does have a few insecurities that has to do with her past. When I was reading about this, it seriously crushed me a little because I just love Jessa's character. She is a perfect example of a girl that has experienced tough situations in college, and at the end has come out of them with the help of her family and new friends. As the story progresses Jessa starts to work on overcoming her insecurities, and she does with the help and love of Grant.
The doors that open up to truly see Grant are double-locked with a chain around the handles.
Grant Bishop's character is selfish, lonely, damaged, perfectionist, passionate, he is insanely hot, and just as Jessa, he struggles with his own insecurities that he covers up by putting up walls around him. I freaking LOVED Grant's character, because in Let Me In we get his whole story. We truly understand why he is so focused in succeeding in life, and why he plans everything in his life and wants to follow through it. Grant has more secrets from his past then Jessa does, and as I mentioned before he puts up walls to protect these secrets from being known. This is one of the things I loved about Grant's character. As each wall is broken down we get to see a different side of Grant. One thing I will say right now is that I actually cried when I was reading the letters (can't say more about this, because I don't want to spoil the book). This was another favorite part of mine in the book, because with the letters we get to understand a deeper side of Grant. His character also overcomes his insecurities and he slowly starts bringing his walls down to let Jessa in.
It took you awhile to find where you belong, Grant, but you belong with me and I belong with you. We are each other's home.
The relationship between Grant and Jessa was just beautiful. There is a little bit of angst, because Grant wants her and Jessa wants Grant, but she is dating Rob (seriously hated this guy). OMG Michelle Lynn! Their first kiss was just freaking amazing. Heck, their whole relationship is just amazingly beautiful. They both help each other overcome their insecurities with their love for each other, and the way they refuse to let the secrets they keep from their past from creating a problem in their relationship. Now shall we talk about the sex?!?!? Michelle Lynn delivered A LOT of HOT sex scenes in Let Me In. Grant and Jessa are just explosive and can't keep their hands off each other. But there is also one specific scene which totally just made me swoon! This particular scene is a sweet romantic moment between Grant and Jessa, and one of my favorites :D!
"Never doubt me, Jessa. You're mine and I'm yours."
I just loved every moment of Let Me In by Michelle Lynn. I was intrigued from the very first page. I started reading it on Friday night and I didn't put it down until 1:00 a.m. in the morning. But I just didn't want to put Let Me In down for one second, because I just wanted to keep reading to find out Grant and Jessa's secrets. Michelle Lynn definitely delivered a beautiful story with lovable and unforgettable characters in Let Me In. Grant and Jessa's story has gotten deep under my skin, and I can see myself re-reading Let Me In.
Michelle Lynn I hope you are working on the third installment in the Invisibles series at this moment, because I can't wait to read Trey's story! I also can't wait to read more about the Invisible series characters :D!
Final Verdict: 5 Stars
Excerpt:My mind races as I’m leaving the lecture hall. Pulling my gloves and hat on, I watch Grant’s large frame walk quickly in the other direction. How can your heart and mind be in two more different places? My heart screams for Grant every time we’re around each other, but my mind won’t let me take the step. Make that a giant leap.
The thing that scares me the most is that he doesn’t truly want it. I can feel his desire for me throughout my whole body when he’s near, but then he pulls back just as fast. Then again, the last thing I want is to stay with Rob just for the sake of having someone. I’m stronger than that and I know it.
Before Jason, I wouldn’t have thought twice about breaking things off with Rob and running toward Grant. Fuck Jason for making me doubt my self-worth. My therapist’s words ring in my head from my last session: ‘You have to live again, Jessa. Go, and be happy. You’ve done the work, now reap the reward.’ Dr. Hinkle was the one who convinced me to leave Boulder and start fresh somewhere else. And that’s exactly what I did last semester.
When I first met Rob, I was scared out of my mind, but I pushed forward like Dr. Hinkle said and let him in. Things were so great…at first. He took me home for Thanksgiving and it felt as though we were really going somewhere. That he could be the one and we’d fall in love and live happily ever after. Then he and his band agreed to play Grant’s fraternity party and our relationship started to shift. Dates stopped, the swooning disappeared, and suddenly, I’m being rushed through drive-thru windows to eat and propped up against anything but a bed to fuck.
