Let Me Be The One is book six in The Sullivans series. All of the books in this series can be read alone. This series of books is beautifully written and a joy to read.
Ryan and Vicki were best friends in high school, but have long since gone their separate ways – Vicki to Europe as a sculptor and Ryan as a star baseball pitcher in San Francisco. After a failed marriage, Vicki finds herself in San Francisco applying for a prestigious position in the art community and finds herself in an awkward position with one of the judges. Even though she hasn’t seen him in years, her first thought is to call Ryan for help.
Ryan volunteers to be Vicki’s “pretend boyfriend” to protect her from the unwanted advances of an influential judge. But both Vicki and Ryan have trouble with the “pretend” part. Neither wants to ruin their friendship by becoming lovers, but that’s proving to be quite difficult. No matter how hard they try, their “love” for each other overtakes their “friendship”.
Touching, sweet, romantic and sexy, with likeable characters, this book is my favorite so far of the series.
