Let Me Be the One (The Sullivans #6) by Bella Andre
What Goodreads Says”
"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?"
If you have been reading the Sullivan series you know that Ryan is the major league pitcher and a bit of a playboy. Vicki Bennett is a friend from high school. They were only in school together for one year but have kept in touch by email and text for years. That makes this story a little different. This is friends finally admitting that they are not only attracted to each other but are in love. There is a bad guy thrown in for additional tension but most of the tension comes from Ryan and Vicki refusing to admit they are more than just friends. It makes for a very nice and at times sweet story.
Let Me Be the One can stand on its own but if you have read the entire series to date you will have fun seeing how the other Sullivans are doing. Ryan and Vickie’s story is a good addition to the series. Now there are only two Sullivan’s who have not found love. I hope their stories come out soon.
