Let it be Me
By: Barbara Speak
Genres: Romance, Contemporary Romance, Young Adult
Arianna Dubray is nothing like the girl she left in Baltimore. Once a Prada shoe wearing, Michael Kors bag carrying, on top of the world seventeen-year-old girl, Arianna knew that her life would never be the same when she got out of the car in middle-of-nowhere Montana.
Canyon Michaels is the keeper of his own dark secrets. Plagued by his family name, he's forced to prove the town wrong and make it on his own.
The last thing Arianna needs is a reason to stay, but with every passing day the decision to leave becomes harder. Once their paths cross nothing can tear them apart, other than the secrets that start to surface and the nightmares that soon become their reality.
I've read so many books since my last review (I know, I know) that it should have been difficult...or at least a little challenging to decide which one to review first, but it definitely wasn't. Let It Be Me was written in a way that sucks the readers in before they've flipped through more than a few pages. It's a story that beautifully illustrates unconditional love, as well as, overcoming a less than ideal home life. If you have a heart in your chest prepare to make room for Ari, Canyon, and sweet little Shelby.
**Upon finishing Let It Be Me I immediately added its sequel, Let It Be Us to my Kindle (review coming shortly). Let's just say that dishes sat in the sink a little longer than usual because I didn't move until I was completely finished reading the story of Canyon and Arianna.
