Why did I buy it? I have heard of Bella Andre but I haven’t read one of her books. Instead of going to the beginning of her Sullivan series, I thought I’d try her newest book.
What’s the storyline? In Let Me Be The One, the brand-new book in Bella Andre’s New York Times and USA Today bestselling series about the Sullivan family, an unexpected friends-to-lovers romance might not only turn out to be so much hotter than anything bad boy pro baseball player Ryan Sullivan has ever known…but much, much sweeter, too.
When Vicki Bennett saved Ryan Sullivan’s life as a teenager, it was the beginning of a close friendship that never wavered despite her failed marriage to someone else and Ryan’s well-earned reputation as a ladies’ man. So when she suddenly needs a pretend boyfriend to protect herself and her career from a powerful man’s advances, he is the only person she can imagine asking.
Ryan will do anything to protect Vicki from harm, but when their “fake” kisses and caresses lead to an incredibly sensual night that neither of them can resist, will he have made the biggest mistake of all by irreparably jeopardizing their friendship? Or is it possible that what they’ve both been looking for has been right there the whole time…and the perfect combination of wicked and sweet, friendship and love, is finally within reach?
Who should read it? Readers who want a softer tone in their sensual romance will adore this book. While there are plenty of hot love scenes, it’s the tender moments that define the story.
If you’re like me and want a protective hero, this is the book for you. I also like the heroine who is loyal, creative and trying to move on with her life.
Also, readers who enjoy friends-to-lovers stories will want this book. Ryan and Vicki have always fought the sexual attraction because they cherished and protected their friendship above all else.
Would I buy another Bella Andre book? If all of Andre’s characters are as loveable as Ryan and Vicki, you bet.
