~ Synopsis ~

When Jacob “Dax” Daxton returns home from war, he has to fight a new battle – the one to find his place in the world. The man who normally has a clear path to victory surrounded by brothers in combat is suddenly lost and alone. After meeting Beckett Ridge, a bearded tattoo artist, Dax’s journey begins winding down an unexpected path.

Still reeling from events that shook his foundation, Beck has never been part of anything meaningful. Now faced with responsibilities foreign and daunting, Dax’s broken spirit mends Beck in ways he never even knew he was destroyed.

As both struggle to find balance, they are healed by the comfort they find in one other. On the other side of chaos, they hope to find themselves On Solid Ground.



~ Review by Venture ~

*I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.*

“It is scary how sometimes the people with whom you spend most of your life, know you the least.”

Dax comes home from war wishing he was anywhere else. He feels lost. He is lucky to have his best friend Chloe while he tries to figure out who he is. His decision to get a tattoo seems to make some changes in his life without trying. If only if he could get past his ptsd and himself to a new possible future.

Beckett loves his job as a tattoo artist that owns his a shop. When a hot guy with sad eyes walks into his life, he is intrigued.  He keeps his problems inside and Dad keeps his on the outside. A new start for possibly both of them. Sometimes the things we see wrong with us are nothing to the right person.

I really enjoyed this story. I have been a huge Melissa Collins fan since Let Love In. I have read every book since then. Dax and Beckett are good men trying to live with a crappy hand they were delivered. I give this 4 books.

~ About the author ~


Melissa Collins has always been a book worm. Studying Literature in college ensured that her nose was always stuck in a book. She followed her passion for reading to the most logical career choice: English teacher. Her hope was to share her passion for reading and the escapism of books to her students. Having spent more than a decade in front of a classroom, she can easily say that it’s been a dream.

Her passion for writing didn’t start until more recently. When she was home on maternity leave in early 2012, she read her first romance novel and her head filled with the passion, angst and laughter of the characters who she read about it. It wasn’t long before characters of her own took shape in her mind. Their lives took over Melissa’s brain and The Love Series was born.
