Release Day for On Solid Ground by Melissa Collins


 Title: On Solid Ground
Author: Melissa Collins
Genre: M/M, Contemporary, Romance
Release Date: January 15, 2015


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.





On Solid Ground is a M/M romance. I'm always a little leery about M/M romances. For me to like that type of novel it has top be written very well and they characters have to be likeable and believable. With On Solid Ground, Melissa Collins wrote a wonderful story.

The story is told in the dual POVs of Beckett "Beck" and Jacob “Dax". Both are complex and interesting characters. Dax has been away serving in the military. He has some issues with PTSD. He is also still in the closest but his best friend Chloe knows. He moves in with Chloe. Dax has all sorts of issues.

He meets Beck when he goes to a tattoo parlor to get a tattoo. Beck is openly gay. He designed a tattoo for Dax. Beck has issues too.

They both seems a little lost and have a lot of stuff to deal with. Beck and Dax have a connection and you can't help but root for them to find love.

On Solid Ground is a great emotional read. It kept me hooked from beginning to end.

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.
