Megan Carter’s spent the past five years nannying for a pint-size boss—the adorable Charlie—while also navigating her full-size boss, his somewhat grouchy, way-too-methodical dad, Adam. Now that she’s finally moving on, helping Adam find her replacement should be easy…except he doesn’t want another nanny. He wants a wife.

Adam’s been burned by love in the past, so of course he believes finding someone who can be a partner in raising his son is all that matters. Too bad the woman helping him search is the biggest believer in love at first sight and happily-ever-after he’s ever met.

Even as Adam’s funny, charming, and—who would have thought it?—super-hot side starts to come out, Megan knows that without love, a family would never be complete. But convincing Adam of that might be harder than she thought.

Let It Be Me by Jody Holford is a sweet and entertaining read.

I enjoyed the storyline, it was well written, easy to follow and I ended up reading it in one sitting.

Watching the relationship unfold between Adam and Megan had me smiling and swooning one minute and wanting to punch Adam the next ...more

3.5 Stars!

Adam is a divorced single father. His own father drank away their income and his mom left when he was 13, never looking back. Add onto the fact that his ex-wife cared more about her rising career in acting than him or their son, this has greatly affected his outlook on life.

When Adam firs ...more

Adam could be affectionate at times, “way to throw my words back at me. In that case…” he said, letting his hands glide down to grip her incredibly shaped bottom. Pulling her tight against him..." I liked this book, and it was a good thing Adam had Meg because the man could be really daft at times. ...more

Oooh what a perfect title. I wanted it to be me.

Oh, you guys, Let it Be Me was such a treat! I wasn’t sure what to expect going into it. I mean, not really. There are certain things I automatically expect from Ms. Holford’s books: authenticity, heartwarming interactions, and a certain sweetness threaded throughout the story. Those things are all ...more

By Beth January 25, 2018

She knew she needed to be sensible, but it was like her heart wanted to jump up and say, “Me! Let it be me.”

Sigh. (The good kind, promise.)

That’s how I feel at the end of Let It Be Me by Jody Holford. It’s a warm, sweet, feel good romance—one that is light on angst and altogether just a really enjo ...more

By Isha January 28, 2018

In matters of the heart, it's the clueless that make the perfect match. Jody Holford puts her heart in her stories and Let It Be Me in my opinion shows the most evidence of that. The romantic and the Scrooge is a common theme in romance, but add in an adorable pint sized matchmaker and you have come ...more

She does it again

Jody is one of my favorite authors. Her relatable characters never fail to grip you by the heartstrings. Adam and Megan are no exception. My heart was invested only a few pages in. Jody is a must-read author if you want to end up feeling good. ...more

Reviewed on my blog, Becky on Books, on 9/6/18.

Absolutely adorable romance! The swoon-worthy ending makes up for 90% of the aggravation I felt earlier in the story... ;)

I have to be honest--Adam wasn't my favorite character for about 2/3 of the book. His reasons for asking Megan to "find him a wife" ...more

Let it be me by Jody Holford was a pleasant surprise but my only wish would be a bit more heat between the H/h. Other than that you'll fall in love with Parker and Garrett, Ste ...more

Let It Be Me by Jody Holford is a nicely-written story about a nanny falling in love with her boss. Actually, they fall for each other almost simultaneously, as their business relationship evolves into much more.

Another fabulous book by Jody Holford, author of the Kendrick Place series!

I loved that series and how the characters from each book appeared throughout the others. Since they were some of my favorite books this year I had high hopes going into reading Let It Be Me.

This is the first book that I’ve read by Ms Holford. As soon as I read, “Megan Carter’s spent the past five years nannying for a pint-size boss—the adorable Charlie—while also navigating her full-size boss…” in the blurb I knew this one had to be fun. It was!

Megan got her job as a nanny for Charlie ...more

Despite seeming to fit into a formulaic plot of hot guy falling for his nanny, there were several aspects that made this novel stand out. The heroine, Megan is a sweetheart and has a wonderful relationship with the little boy, Charlie, that she’s been taking care of for five years since he was two. ...more

I really connected with Adam and Megan's story.

Exceptional story! This book is wonderfully written and the story just blew me away. I loved these characters and it was fun to see them change their view of not only what they want in life but each other as well.

By Paula January 29, 2018

Let It Be Me by Jody Holford is an enjoyable if predictable story. Nanny stories are my favorite of tropes, but I liked Megan so that made the story interesting. The negative Adam was another story indeed. It grows on the reader after a while but really Megan could have done better. However, this st ...more

By Lori February 04, 2018

Such a great story! This book makes you feel every heartbreak, every chance of hope, morsel of love. The transformation of Adam from closed off to everyone but himself to a truly loving come back to life man was beautiful. Megan brought that out in him despite many bumps in the road. I loved how eve ...more

By Laura January 29, 2018

A single dad, a nanny, and a slow burn made this book a delight to read.

Adam was burned by his marriage and doesn't have any interest in taking that road again. He's doing everything he can to be as successful as possible so his son will never know what it's like to go without like he did growing up ...more
