About Let It Be Me
The one woman he wants is the one he cannot have.
Former foster kid Sebastian Grant has leveraged his intelligence and hard work to become a pediatric heart surgeon. But not even his career success can erase the void he’s tried so hard to fill. Then he meets high school teacher Leah Montgomery and his fast-spinning world comes to a sudden stop. He falls hard, only to make a devastating discovery–Leah is the woman his best friend set his heart on months before.
Leah’s a math prodigy who’s only ever had one big dream–to earn her PhD. Raising her little brother put that dream on hold. Now that her brother will soon be college bound, she’s not going to let anything stand in her way. Especially romance . . . which is far less dependable than algebra.
When Leah receives surprising results from the DNA test she submitted to a genealogy site, she solicits Sebastian’s help. Together, they comb through hospital records to uncover the secrets of her history. The more powerfully they’re drawn to each other, the more strongly Sebastian must resist, and the more Leah must admit that some things in life–like love–can’t be explained with numbers.
There are so many things to love about this book! I loved Leah and the mystery she was trying to solve. I loved Sebastian and the things he was learning about himself. And I loved that the reader gets to see characters from the previous book, Stay With Me, that were much loved.
I loved Leah. She’s a high school math teacher. She loves teenagers, that’s so obvious. She has a teenage brother that’s she’s raising on her own. Her parents are terrible! And she goes out of her way to help the ones she teaches at school. I loved that about her. I loved the mystery of trying to figure out what was up with her DNA not matching her parents. She had a lot of work to do to figure that out. And the way it ended surprised me and blew me away!
Sebastian had a mystery too. The mystery of the woman who helped him when he had his car accident. I loved the way he found Leah. And the way things worked out for them, even when it seemed as though they wouldn’t.
I highly recommend this book and this series. It’s so good!
