"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 never disappoints." Revolving Bookcase Reviews

Millions of readers around the world have fallen in love with Bella Andre’s New York Times and USA Today bestselling contemporary romances about the Sullivans!

BOOK DESCRIPTION: An unexpected friends-to-lovers romance might not only turn out to be so much hotter than anything bad boy pro baseball player Ryan Sullivan has ever known...but much, much sweeter, too. 

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? 

LET ME BE THE ONE is part of Bella Andre's #1 bestselling series about The Sullivans. While it can easily be read as a stand-alone story, you'll likely enjoy reading the other books, too.

  • Boring

    By ai4x4
    I read it because I paid for it.
  • Long time friends

    By MelissaNY666
    I wanted to scream..TALK TO EACH OTHER, about a million times.
  • Wow!

    By OrangeMama22
    I have read nearly everything Ms. Andre has written. The Sullivan Series are an all-time fave and feel I've been a part of wonderful family magic with the collection. However, Let Me Be The One was my absolute favorite. I laughed, I cried (which I never do), my heart ached & I attacked my husband between the sheets!! I have read & re-read and love it more with every pass! Maybe it's my Bay Area roots and familiarity with the area or the wanting to be a part of a big family, but the whole collection are phenomenal, each in their own way. Thanks for allowing us to be a part of the Sullivan family & keep writing!
  • Quick fun read

    By 2012ness
    I have read the entire series so far and this was my favorite. When you read these books you get so invested in the family and their stories. Excellent book! I wish the series didn't have to end!
  • The Sullivan's

    By it's a no from me
    I just finished book 6 and I am so disappointed that book 7 isn't already here..I loved everyone of these stories, Bella Andre is amazing . I completely feel like I am right there in the story when I am reading..it would be awesome if the Sullivan Family came to life either on TV or the big screen... PureBliss
  • Ehhhh it was okay

    By hke2015
    I love all of the Sullivan books but this one was kind of annoying. Half of the book the two main characters were pushing each other away when they really wanted each other. Not realistic at times. Not my favorite. Kind of disappointed.
  • Wonderful story, great romance.

    By VAmomx4
    I just love the whole Sullivan Series. I love being able to get more about the characters you've just met in the following stories while you are learning about new characters. Who wouldn't want to be apart of such an incredible family. The characters are all so colorful and unique. Makes you want to step into their world everyday.
  • The sweetest book ever!

    By ba833girl
    I'm hooked on the Sullivan Series! This book was a great read, very sweet! But I have to say all of her books are great! It just gets better and better! I can wait to read about Smith Sullivan! Can you move up the date? I'm dying here ;)
