Micah Hudson and Jude MacMillian were both lonely teenagers. One the new kid
and one the target of relentless bullying, they quickly became friends. But
when friendship grew into more, the relationship was too much for either to
handle. As their tenuous bond was tested, everything tumbled down, leaving
them lonely once again.

A decade later, Micah is on the brink of losing his will to live. Beyond
exhausted from lying to everyone, including himself, Micah thinks of the one
person who knows his deepest secret. Desperate and alone, Micah makes the
only decision he feels he has: he must leave. But his need for closure
depends on one thing.

Can Jude make room in his Unsteady life for Micah once again?

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.

Review

The pain, anguish, and torment that Micah is going through are heartbreaking to witness as Melissa Collins painstakingly unfolds his journey in Unsteady, book three, in the On Solid Ground series. 

Running from a teenage love was Micah's biggest mistake—now ten years later—he's running again, but it's back to the only man he's ever loved in hopes that he may get it right this time. 

Jude has missed and ached for Micah and regretted so much about what happened and how he handled things graduation day. He had no idea he wouldn't see him again to explain why he did what he did, now a decade later he's back, and his feelings are just as strong as they were then. 

Micah and Jude have a lot of time to make up for and even though Jude knows there are things Micah can't talk about—right now—he's just happy he's there with him. 

Micah suffers from PTSD and thanks to his service dog, Sarge, he's able to ward off panic attacks before they get too bad but he's keeping secrets from Jude that need to be told sooner rather than later and the stress is getting to him causing turmoil between the two. 

My heart was breaking for Micah as he admits some of his truths with Jude. Going straight to war after school and doing what he felt was right, at the time, has left lasting repercussions causing Micah to doubt himself and the validity of his worth.

Jude hasn't fared much better over the years. He and his father are in much the same situation as they were in high school but once Micah sees with his own eyes he realizes what's going on and goes out on a limb to make some improvements. It was awesome to see the changes and the smiles that it brought to the faces of Jude and his dad.

Unsteady is an emotional and gripping story that will pull at your heartstrings but it's also uplifting and rewarding as Micah and Jude find each other after so long and realize they still love each other.  They both will have to decide how and if they want to move forward together as neither are out of the closet and there's still secrets Micah is keeping from Jude that could upset the whole dynamic. 

This is my second book by Melissa Collins and I love how I immediately connect to her characters and feel the emotion as if they are right in front of me. The angst, the pain, the chemistry and the joy was intense and alive on the page. A great story that will bring tears to your eyes one minute and a smile the next. An emotional journey with a great ending.
