Let It Be Me Kait Nolan read online review & book description:

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?

    Let It Be Me, didn't disappoint in the continuation of the Misfit Inn saga. Kait visiting the brothers of Joan's foster family is a brilliant move. Emerson and Caleb made the pages sizzle with sexual tension, whew! Kait's portrayal of real life and character growth is magnificent. Accepting love and risking friendship for something more is scary. Kait created just the right combination of fear and chemistry to make these characters come alive. Can't wait for the next installment! I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

    The Misfit Inn books are some of my favorites by Kait Nolan, and I’ve always wanted to learn more about some of the other children who lived there. In this book we meet Caleb, who lived there as a child. As a mom of daughters, I adored the aunt/mother-daughter relationship between Emerson and Fi almost as much as the romance between Emerson and Caleb. Definitely recommend you read this one!

  • Nothing not to love!

    There is nothing not to love about Let It Be Me! Younger, hot firefighter secretly loves the single mom/guardian of a teen he rescues. Convinces single mom to give him a chance and then when they finally decide to take things to the next level...they can’t manage to get time alone. I laughed several times because as a parent of teens and a toddler, the relatable chase for the elusive alone time is so frustrating! This is definitely worth the read!

    I can’t believe the way I get caught up in Kait Nolan’s stories. Reading her books means stepping into another place for awhile where you’re surrounded by new friends and family who have your back when life dumps on you, and where love and romance knock you off your feet. “Let It Be Me” is an amazing story about true love in many shapes and forms. From a hot firefighter’s love for a woman he admires and supports unrequited for years while she’s in survival mode, to a very special relationship between this woman and her goddaughter when tragic events bring the 3 of them together. Add in some perceptive and outspoken friends and family, and I don’t want this book to end! And the great news is that it doesn’t have to! Yes, it’s a standalone with a satisfying HEA. But it’s also the beginning of a new series, with a bonus of ties to the Misfit Inn series as well. Nicely done and a great read!

    I loved the Misfit Inn series and Let It Be Me is a wonderful start to the Men of Misfit Inn series by Kait Nolan. This is a heartwarming story brought on by tragic events for Emerson who then adopts her best friend daughter and Caleb, a firefighter who rescued Fiona and stayed involved in the lives. I love how the Caleb is there for Emerson and her adopted daughter Fiona and has been secretly in love with Emerson. The story of Caleb and Emerson is uplifting, heart wrenching and truly a beautiful love story. I really enjoyed this beautifully written story about Emerson and Caleb. I highly recommend reading it.

    Being a long time fan of Kait Nolan’s writing and characters, I read this one expecting it to be good. I WAS MINDBLOWN. I had no expectations of Caleb or Emerson and I happily swooned at Caleb all through the book. My heart was beating fast as I read this book, I felt like I was in this myself and I don’t have any words to describe Caleb. I’ve read the book 3 times already! I want to move next door to them. I want to seriously meet these people, I’m so impressed !!! Must read!!! I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
  • NOT an accidental story!

    Despite how accidents played their part in this story, the story crafted around them is NO accident! I am drawn to stories with an uncommon element, such as an age difference with the woman being older or with one partner having a disability or medical issue. So this was right up my alley. I was a little surprised at the slow roll in the beginning, but liked how the reason for it was addressed later in the story — won’t say any more for fear of spoiling the story! This storyline felt like it was taking me on waves, each one higher than the one before. As ever, a wonderful Kait Nolan romance, with an especially sweet ending!

    Loved the palpable chemistry between Caleb and Emerson! And throwing an insta-family in the mix feels so current and relatable. Glad we got to see more of Joan’s boys and learn about their backstories... can’t wait for more already!!!! Great book to add to the MisFit Inn collection!

  • Standing ovation for Caleb and Emerson

    This book is absolutely amaze-balls! I loved it from page one and instantly fell in love with not just swoon-worthy Caleb but Emerson as well. They have been together for four years...on the worst and most dramatic night of Emerson’s life. But it took them years...only because he’s remarkably patient and she’s slow on the uptake...to become a couple. And honestly, that coupling was pretty much drama free. That pesky age difference that Emerson worried about quickly became a non-issue. So they settled nicely into coupledom, but I think we all waited fo4 that shoe to drop. While I won’t say their roadblock was predictable, it was organic to the story and not something created for drama’s sake. That’s one of my favorite things about Kait Nolan’s stories; there’s none of those ridiculous plot twists that come out of left field. It’s all contained within the borders of the storyline she has created. Her characters are people who want to hang out with, laugh with, and cry with. They grow but never change too much, because they were smart, great people from the start. I knew I’d like this new series, since I haven’t read a Nolan book I haven’t liked. But if they are all as good as this opener...it might be my favorite series from her, period!
