Smart and attractive Carolyn Harris and academically-challenged football star Jeremy Rivers find their lives intertwined in a wealthy Connecticut town in this gripping tale that effectively straddles the line between young adult and romance. Both the sweetness of young love and the dark underside of high school cliques are effectively depicted by a well-developed cast of characters shadowed by tragedy but reaching for independence and happiness. Readers will find themselves deeply engaged by Carolyn and Jeremy and the twists and turns of this genuinely engrossing story. -Publisher's Weekly, The BookLife Prize in Fiction

The writing is lovely, painting the picture of these two young people clawing their way to the love they both want and believe in. The emotions, good and bad, are gripping. The pace is quick but unhurried. A pleasure to read.
The only reason I can think of why I didn't immediately leave a review for this lovely story is that I stayed up late to read it and promised myself I'd do it the following day. And as we all know, sometimes we forget, which is what must have happened. I was leaving a review for LET ME HEAL YOUR HEART, which I read today, when I realized my mistake, which I'm rectifying now.
LET ME BE THE ONE was the second of Lily Foster's books I read, after LET ME FALL. And while it didn't quite have the same impact on me as that luminous story, it was still a beautifully told tale of young love and dealing with the consequences of our actions. Ms. Foster has a way of drawing the reader in, of making us live the story right along with the H/h and the secondary characters. She doesn't take the easy way out of tough situations, either, putting her H/h through trials by fire. But that only makes the HEA ending sweeter, knowing they had to fight for it, the same way we do in real life. And that makes for a heck of an interesting story!
Tom Farrell had a crush on Darcy Donovan from the first time he had seen her. She was absolutely gorgeous and her heart seemed to match her looks. However, she was his friend’s girlfriend so he had to back off. After a fiasco with his own girlfriend and when Nick began harassing Darcy, Tom decided it was time to make his own move. Then Darcy took a year off to travel to Spain for school.
When Darcy returned, she and Tom began seeing each other. They had spent a night together with his parents before she had left for Spain. They had talked until the wee hours of the morning and he had made quite an impression on her. Their romance is not smooth sailing. Old girlfriends keep popping up and Nick keeps in the picture. Tom is so insistent on not getting in the way of any future plans Darcy makes that he almost loses her. Each time, they get back together; but each time, some degree of trust is lost. Will they make it?
