The one woman he wants is the one he cannot have.
Former foster kid Sebastian Grant has leveraged his intelligence and hard work to become a pediatric heart surgeon. But not even his career success can erase the void he’s tried so hard to fill. Then he meets high school math teacher Leah Montgomery and his fast-spinning world comes to a sudden stop. He falls hard, only to make a devastating discovery—Leah is the woman his best friend set his heart on months before.
Leah’s a math prodigy who’s only ever had one big dream—to earn her PhD. Raising her little brother put that dream on hold. Now that her brother will soon be college bound, she’s not going to let anything stand in her way. Especially romance . . . which is far less dependable than algebra.
When Leah receives surprising results from the DNA test she submitted to a genealogy site, she solicits Sebastian’s help. Together, they comb through hospital records to uncover the secrets of her history. The more powerfully they’re drawn to each other, the more strongly Sebastian must resist, and the more Leah must admit that some things in life—like love—can’t be explained with numbers.

Let It Be Me is a contemporary romance written by Becky Wade. It is book 2 in A Misty River Romance series. I highly recommend reading them in order because of an event that sets the backdrop for the characters and how they are connected. The “event” and backstory are one of my favorite parts of the first book, Stay With Me. The featured characters in this book are Sebastian and Leah. One a pediatric cardiac surgeon and the other a math prodigy turned high school teacher. They meet for the first time after a trip to the ER, but their second encounter is where things get interesting. The story is full of emotion, love and plenty of twists and turns! This read is enjoyable from the beginning to end and will tug at your heartstrings.
