A girl in danger...

Aubrey Walsh never dreamed that she would find herself in an abusive relationship, but after her boyfriend hits her so hard he breaks her tooth, she flees the University of Maine to hide on a remote island with her best friend. Only to discover that she is pregnant. Terrified of what will happen if Jared finds out, she is walking along the rocks, deciding her future, when she slips.

A guy with a secret past...

After a job gone wrong, Riker has left the assassin business and is incognito as a ferryboat operator off the shores of Maine. It's a lonely life, and when he sees a young woman almost fall off the rocks, he doesn't hesitate to save her and take her in, though he's determined to stay emotionally uninvolved. But when the truth about her situation is revealed, he will do anything to protect Aubrey and her unborn child.

Even marry her. Even kill for her.

When Jared comes looking for the only girl who has ever rejected him, Riker won't allow it. And Aubrey is torn between protecting herself and her child, or protecting the mysterious husband she has come to love.

And when chance brings them together but fate tears them apart, can their love survive the storm?

Read the first two and then you really get to enjoy the third.

Stories featuring domestic abuse are extremely difficult to read and Let Me In is no exception. While one of my favorite books, Blue-Eyed Devil by Lisa Kleypas, features abuse, I’m always hesitant to read books with that plot point for fear of how it is addressed. Erin McCarthy did a good job with addressing the trauma Aubrey went through. That being said, I would have liked to have seen her address her past, perhaps through professional counseling. You Make Me, the first book in the series, introduced Aubrey. She was a college student who, in the first book, becomes caught in an abusive relationship. At the beginning of the book, the catalyst for her leaving is when her boyfriend breaks her teeth for coming home late from grocery shopping. She flees to the island that Cat lives on with Heath, the couple from the first book. On top of the trauma of escaping an abusive relationship and her ex making it clear he’s coming for her, she discovers she’s pregnant. On the island, she meets Cat’s neighbor, Riker, who has recently returned from the army. The speed in which their relationship developed left me with whiplash. With Aubrey’s past, I wouldn’t of expected that she would fall so quickly into a new relationship. That being said, I did like the relationship between Aubrey and Riker. They were both good for each other and the chemistry between them was steamy. Riker, like Aubrey, had a difficult past. He was learning to deal with how his military life changed him and to accept he was no longer the person he was before he left. Together, Riker and Aubrey supported each other and created a positive future together. Like the previous book, I felt the suspense portion of the book was resolved too quickly and neatly. The threat of Aubrey’s ex hungover most of the book and yet was easily cleaned up in the end, in a manner that didn’t seem realistic to abusive relationships. That being said, I did enjoy this book and I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series, which follows Aubrey’s brother Ethan.

Erin McCarthy’s Let Me In is the middle child in the Blurred Lines series. The Characters are all connected in some way, but each book can be read as a standalone. Be forewarned, the book does start out with an episode of domestic violence and abuse, but it’s written well and handled the same. Aubrey decides after an increasingly abusive relationship with Jacob and a couple of knocked out teeth, to run. She makes it to her friend Cat’s house on Vinelhaven, a tiny island off the coast of Maine. When she gets some distressing news, she goes for a walk and ends up over a cliff. She’s rescued by Riker, a quiet, intense man she’s seen a couple of times outside his home. After getting to know each other he becomes her protector, her friend, and her lover. But can this ex-military man save her from her?….Grab a copy and find out! Loved Ms. McCarthy’s writing in this, it kept me riveted and entertained the whole time. The characters were all just wonderful, and I don’t say that very often. I’m looking forward to the rest of the series!

As much as I have enjoyed this series I honestly felt like ripping my hair out when every page seemed to have either a sentance, word or spelling error. There is only so much a writer can miss, is there not???? And where, by golly was her editor in all this? The story is good although the two characters meet and fall for each other far too fast, and sometimes there should be a bit more...well...drama somewhere especially when dealing with a serious topic like abuse. The only twist when the abuser returns is the barn scene and that was totally anticlimatic in my opinion. That scene could have been developed into some good page-turning drama but it went no where. I could give the other books in the series four stars, but this one barely made the cut at three.. sorry. M.Cunningham in WV

This book was good. Must read. But read the first two before reading this one. The only thing I would've liked, is  for the books to be longer.

Aubrey is a beautiful woman who ends up in a very bad relationship with a man named Jared.  He was physically and mentally abusive to her. Aubrey finally gets the strength to runaway from him and escapes to her best friend Cats place to hide out until she decides what to do next.  As Aubrey begins to start dealing with all the trauma she learns that she is pregnant with Jared’s baby and she doesn’t know what to do? She decides to go for a walk down by the water and get her thoughts in order. She sees a guys (Riker) chopping wood in the house next to Cats on the beach with no shirt.  While she is out walking she falls and gets hurt and its Riker to the rescue.   This is the story of Riker and Aubrey and how they connect with each other on many levels because they are both emotionally damaged and cautious to trust.  Riker agrees to keep and eye on Aubrey while Cat is out of town to make sure that Jared does not show up.  Aubrey continues to grow closer to Riker as they continue to slowly open up to each other.  This story was amazing real. I was so totally drawn into this book I Just couldn’t put it down, I think this was one of the best books in Erin McCarthy Blurred Lines Series so far.  I also loved that the author made the female character that started out a victim in the beginning a stronger woman in the end.  I am proud to see the author’s willingness to write the strong woman character.  I always appreciate that.  I read this book as an ARC from Erin McCarthy (Author)

This was my favorite book hands down out of the Blurred Lines. I really loved how Aubrey was a domestic violence survivor and that Riker was the perfect balance of toughness and tenderness. Riker is hilarious and he is a gentleman, but not so overdone that he isn't believe able. Erin is an amazing writer, so do yourself and check this book out!

I waited for the release of this book just like I have for all of Erin McCarthy's previous books! "Let Me In" in her Blurred Lines Series did not disappoint! I love this story between Aubrey and Riker. After escaping her abusive boyfriend, Aubrey finds out she is pregnant. After a mission gone wrong, Riker finds himself alone, trying to deal with his past and come to terms with what he wants to do with his future. Both struggle with how to deal with the other. Within the close quarters they find themselves living in, Aubrey learns to trust and love again while Riker learns that the most important things in his life are his new wife and her unborn child. This is another MUST READ by Erin McCarthy!

Let Me In was a bit of a quandary for me to rate and review. Erin McCarthy is one of my all time favorite authors. I really loved the first two in the Blurred Lines series. However my feelings on book 3 are not so clear cut. Erin's writing style is still just as engaging as ever sucking me right in- I could not put this book down, reading it straight through in a matter of hours! And the characters themselves were well developed- I felt all of the emotional scars left on Aubrey, was rooting for her throughout and I LOVED Riker's dark and broody personality combined with his super protective alpha-maleness (definitely always a winning combination!) But what left me unsure was the story itself. I'm not in general a fan of instalove in any plot, and Aubrey's & Rikers relationship progressed insanely fast. Also the fact that both Aubrey & Riker both had intensive background stories it just made the instalove highly unrealistic for me to get behind. So while the writing and character development is still brilliant, I would have much rather had a longer story with more time given for their relationship to evolve more naturally. So Let Me In comes in with a solid 3.5 stars for me. Rounded up to 4 as getting more glimpses of Cat & Heath was a major bonus! :)

I was so glad Erin got to write Rickers story! And Aubrey...I mean wow! I loved this story from the first page. I actually cried a few times so keep the tissues handy. You start out meeting Aubrey as her husband is smacking her around and hits her with a belt, knocking two teeth loose. She runs away to live with Cat and Heath. From there life isn't looking too peachy for Aubrey but an accidentally slip off a cliff has Riker coming to the rescue. Riker is a quiet, ex-military man living on the island across the street from Cat and Heath. Everyone thinks he has PTSD but he is so much more than that label. Without giving too much away I will say that this is an intense, sweet and loving story that will have you equal parts crying and laughing

Aubrey was introduced to us in 'You make me' another book in the Blurred Lines series. She was the all American blond college girl on the right path to success getting side tracked by trying to find love in all the wrong places. In 'Let me in' her luck runs out and she is in a bad place with a man who is jealous and abusive. She runs away to the only safe place she knows and trips, falls and stumbles right into the hot and sexy Riker. Riker Is hiding away from his family and friends trying to take a break from the things he had to do to protect the world from all the bad people that go bump in the night. He sees the beauty in Aubrey and not only does he want to protect her he wants to nurture her and love her and everything that comes along with her! I honestly loved this book. It was the complete package. It had heat, it had emotion. I literally felt the pain and the strength that each of them felt and I loved how two imperfect people used their pain and heartache to create something so beautiful.

Having been a fan of Erin McCarthy's for many years, I expect a lot from her books.  Luckily for me, she never disappoints.  I just completed the third book, Let Me In, in her series, Blurred Lines, and it was amazing!  Let Me In explores the lives of Aubrey and Riker and how their relationship transpires.  We first met Aubrey in You Make Me, and I have been waiting for her story since.  If you have not read the other books in the series, I would suggest that you start from the beginning and not stop until you have finished Let Me In - you will not be disappointed.  But, you can read this first and go back without being lost.  I really enjoyed this story and the dynamic between the main characters.  It is really a story about “looks being deceiving.”  The reader quickly learns that although small and scared, Aubrey is amazingly strong and in charge and, although a tough, former military man, Riker is intuitive, sensitive and kind. As for the author, I continue to be in awe of Erin McCarthy because each of her story-lines is so very different - she is not the kind of author that writes in an expected pattern whereby you can guess the ending.  I am constantly surprised by the twists and turns in each book and there is always something in each book that has me saying to myself “I never saw that coming.”  I find her writing to be excellent, the subject matter relevant, and I enjoy being transported into her stories. I received this book for free in exchange for a honest review, and honestly...it is a must read!

Ashley & Riker are not your normal happy go lucky couple. They both come with some heavy baggage. The journey hey travel is one not many will travel but one we can all learn some compassion from! Very emotional read that won't let you go & stays with you long after you have finished it! Sad to see the series end but it ended dramatically!

My favorite so far! I enjoyed how Aubrey and Riker found one another. She coming from an abuse relationship and seeing that there are good men out there. I really enjoyed this book. This was my favorite in the series.

Let Me In by Erin McCarthy.  Aubrey is being abused by her boyfriend, She escapes him and go to her best friend Cat.  There she meets Riker and falls for him.  I loved this book.  Erin writes deep characters I truly care about.  Both Aubrey and Riker are damaged, but they complete each other and I loved the happy ending.

WOW!  I started reading Let Me In and by the end of the first page my heart was racing, I was holding my breath, my hands were clenched.  I wasn’t sure I wanted to read it or if I even could read it.  Something about Aubrey’s story drew me in and I couldn’t put the book down.  Aubrey and Riker’s story is such an emotional, scary and violent tale. You’ve got to read it.

I've now read three NA books of Erin's and this was the one that I liked the best. Cody Riker the lead male character was a little older than Aubrey, but they both had experienced some significant life experiences. Aubrey was running from an abusive relationship and dealing with trust issues while Riker had seen and been part of the ugly in war that kept him hyper alert and closed off. Riker had the need to care for her and Aubrey needed someone to care for her so the automatic response to gravitate towards one another seemed right. Now if they could only open up to each other completely. I was given an ARC for an honest review. All conclusions are mine and mine alone. Lori P

As a huge Erin McCarthy fan, I expect a lot when I read her books. This story didn’t disappoint! It’s the third installment of the blurred lines series. It’s very sweet and romantic, but also not for the faint of heart. Aubrey is a broken soul who has to learn to trust, love and believe in herself again. Riker is just the hot, bad boy to help her out. He is a bad boy, but he’s also a good person who is all about taking care of her and protecting her. He’s just what Aubrey needs and she’s just what he needs. Of course the fun is in them finding out. Often times in books I like one character more than the other. In Let Me In, I equally liked them both. Aubrey is coming off of a really bad, hurtful relationship that literally has left bruises. When she meets Riker she has forgotten how people are really supposed to be treated. She has been worn down so much she doesn’t believe she’s worthy of someone treating her so well. I would highly recommend this book. It is part of an ongoing series, but can be read as a standalone book.

Was hooked by Rykers protectiveness and love of Aubrey and her sassy attitude! Love that they found each other! Can't wait for the next book!

While Let Me In is the third book of the Blurred Lines Series, it can easily be read as a standalone.   It was nice to briefly catch up on characters from previous books, and not have to have the usual background fill in.  It isn't the usual characters filled with self doubts, low self-esteem issues.   Aubrey was in an abusive relationship that she leaves at the beginning of the book, never doubting she made the wrong choice.  Riker is just what you see and makes no apologies for what he is.   They bring out the best in each other and accept who that person is, of course there are questions, but both are mature enough to understand and accept the answers.  Let Me In was a fast read, and I never once wanted to reach in the book and shake them to wake up and open your eyes.  LOL
