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?

My Review:

Let Me Be the One is the story of two best friends hiding their true feelings for one another while learning to overcome obstacles coming their way. They met when they were in high school and ever since then Vicki Bennett and Ryan Sullivan have been best friends. Over the course of their lives, they have met all sorts of people, created lives far from each other until Vicki surprises Ryan with her return to San Francisco and that's where their story truly begins. 

Vicki has been used to not having a lot of friends, especially when her family tends to relocate a lot. But that didn't stop her form noticing the popular/handsome guy at school, Ryan Sullivan. Their friendship was instantaneous and so was their attraction for one another. Now years later, she comes back to San Francisco after getting divorced . Wanting to start fresh, she enters an art fellowship, where she will have to create different pieces and have them scored by major art sculptors. But it wasn't too long before she found herself asking for her best friend's help. In order to get one of the directors to stop harassing her, she'll have to pretend that Ryan is her boyfriend. Soon she discovers that asking for his will change her life forever. 

Ryan has had a very successful career, he has everything he could ever want, expect the women he loves. Ever since meeting Vicki in high school, he has felt the need to protect her and be by her side. Falling in love with her and not being able to tell her kills him, but is only right to help his friend in need. With this in mind, he decides to help Vicki, but with all the pretending soon things start to become real for the both of them threatening their years of friendship.

I really liked Vicki's character, her artistic side brought more interest to the story. She does have a lot of insecurities, but as the story progressed she was able to change and grow as an individual. Bella Andre did an amazing job showing the growth of the characters, and it all flowed perfectly fine until half way to the end, which I thought it was a bit rushed. Nevertheless, the story as a whole was great. Ryan Sullivan is just amazing, he is caring and a good brother. I love the interaction that he has with Vicki and his family. He brings the cuteness to the story and the sizzling romance. Their chemistry was undeniable, and I really liked the very end. I would recommend the whole series to anyone that wants to read good romance stories full of great characters and plots.
