REVIEW ➞ Let It Be Me by Kait Nolan


Four years ago, firefighter Caleb Romero saved a child and met the woman of his dreams. But trauma killed the timing, so he’s contented himself with being the friend she needed as she navigated sudden parenthood.

Four years ago, Emerson Aldridge became a mom in the worst possible way. Without qualm, she abandoned her own dreams to shepherd her teenage daughter through their shared grief. Her number one priority has been to raise Fiona the way her best friend would have wanted.

Now Fi’s headed off to college and Emerson has no idea how to feel about her suddenly empty nest. She barely even remembers life before motherhood, but Caleb’s right next door to give her a reminder—along with a toe-curling kiss that catapults them past friends and into something more. The life she wanted before the accident is still within reach. He just has to convince her that their age difference means nothing.

Piece of cake. Right?

You’re unapologetically you, flaws and all – and I find those pretty charming. That kind of confidence is sexy as hell.


Kait Nolan is a new to me author and I absolutely loved this story! I plan on going back and reading some of the siblings books now.

Emerson’s life completely changed in a single moment, she was now responsible for taking car of a teenage girl and that became her main focus. Caleb was the firefighter to break the news to Emerson, but also quickly became a person she can lean on for support.

I loved the friendship that Emerson and Caleb had and the bond that Caleb formed with Fiona, too. They made their own family. Emerson and Caleb had amazing chemistry. Though Emerson had some concerns about exploring something more with Caleb, especially when it came to their eight year age difference, but now that she was back to living alone, she needed to learn to live a life she didn’t get before she took in Fiona. Caleb has felt something more for Emerson for years and finally has the chance to explore their feelings.

Let It Be Me is a romance that has depth and is not only about love, but about family and about living your life. This one is a MUST READ and I can’t wait for more in this series!
