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?

I've said this before, but it bears repeating - not since Nora Roberts has anyone been able to write a big family romance series with every book as good as the last. Bella Andre just never disappoints. Sure, some of the plotlines are a bit derivative, but she adds her own unique flair with such likable characters, her books are hard to put down. This friends-to-lovers romance was no exception. Very little angst and the life drama was kept to a minimum - just a sweet story about two people who missed their first chance, but grabbed onto the second one with both hands. Loved it.
Let Me Be the One: 4/5 stars
