Review- Repaired by Melissa Collins

Goodreads Summary:

Liam Davis is a man without a past. That’s what he wants everyone to believe, anyway. Hell-bent on erasing any memories of his previous life, he knows that starting over is all he can do. Hiding who he is, where he’s from, why he’s running, and especially who he’s left behind, Liam has run away from everything he’s ever known. His plan works perfectly until one day when Parker Ryan threatens to expose his carefully concealed world.

Parker Ryan is a man without a future. Sure, he’s a partner in one of New York’s most prestigious law firms, but he’ll never be more than a failure in the eyes of his boss, his father. Rather than break away from his father’s standards, he finds himself mindlessly pursuing them, in turn sacrificing anything that would actually make him happy.

When Liam’s and Parker’s lives collide, the ugly truth about who they really are, and who they hope to become reveals itself when they least expect it. As both of their lives become wrecked beyond all belief, they’ll learn how to rely on each other in their journey to become Repaired.

Author Melissa CollinsRepaired played with my emotions, which worked very well in my favour as I love books that surprise me and that, most importantly, make me feel. This emotional roller coaster of a book made me laugh and brought tears to my eyes as well. I found myself so involved in the story that I felt very connected to it and it made me an emotional mess- something that is very rare. What's most surprising is the fact that I had almost given up on Repaired after reading a few chapters, when something made me get back to it. And I am so very glad I did, because ignoring and missing this one would be a shame. 

Even though Repaired is the story of Liam and Parker, for me, it was all about Liam. It was his story and his book through and through. From the beginning, there was this intensity and mystery surrounding him that made his character the most lovable and exciting as there was just so much to discover when it came to him. As the story progressed and moved ahead, his character developed immensely and I grew to love him as a character and respect him as a person. Liam is truly an unforgettable character who has made a permanent place in my heart because he was so special and unique. 

Parker, on the other hand, was a very predictable character. His situation wasn't something I have never read about before, unlike Liam's. His personality was very strong and he was the perfect shoulder that Liam needed in every sense of the term. I saw him more as a support system of Liam rather than a separate person. Of course, he was an integral part of the book and added depth and positivity to the story, which made him very admirable as well. Also, he is the reason the story finally took the turns that it took and that's just undeniably gorgeous. 

The awe that I am filled with after reading this absolutely great story written by Melissa Collins in the most marvellous way possible is hard to explain. Repaired is not just about Liam and Parker, although it seems like it with all the hot sex. It is about family, trust, betrayal, and most importantly, it is about personal growth. The astounding character development that happened with both Liam and Parker as individuals as well as as a couple was so very admirable and applaudable. In spite of my initial hesitation to read it, Repaired is a smashing read that is so important and that absolutely nailed the whole past meets present meets future collision in an outstanding manner. There's nothing but love and respect in my heart for Liam after reading it. 



  1. This is probably not my kind of book because I don't read NA much, or LGBT books, but I was intrigued to hear about this one in your review. It seems great that you decided not to give up on this one in the end, and like holding out on it was well worth it. It also seems like much more of an emotional read than I would have taken it for, which is surprising. Glad you loved it so, and brilliant review ^^

  2. Awww, that is so sweet that this was such a touching and poignant read for you, Sarika! I especially love how much you love Liam :):) So sweet!!
