About this ebook

Do you remember the day we met?

I was sitting across from you. My boyfriend was sitting next to me.

It was never a love triangle. Any feelings I had for him had long since faded, and he had no one to blame for that train wreck but himself.

I thought I was leaving for good.

But I came back…for you.


Do you remember the day you came back?

You were gone for so long.

Thought I lost you when I’d never had you to begin with.

I hated him for running you off, and hated myself for the person I’d become.

I wasn’t good enough then.

But I changed…for you.

Critical Acclaim for Lily Foster:

With her character-driven plot and fast-moving storyline, Foster easily keeps readers engaged. An involving tale of love and redemption that will satisfy discerning fans of the new-adult genre.

-Kirkus Reviews, Let Me Fall

Let Me Heal Your Heart is a heartbreaking story of first loves and adversity that can be read as a standalone. This is an emotional roller coaster about two lost souls given a second chance to be together. Told from both protagonists' points of view, Foster allows us to see the story from a unique perspective, and the reader may be surprised where their allegiances lie.

-RT Book Reviews

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. While the conventional ending is never in doubt, readers will find themselves deeply engaged by Carolyn and Jeremy and the twists and turns of this genuinely engrossing story.

*Absolutely Amazing* This is book one in The Let Me series and it is Darcy and Tom's story . Tom had been through a really bad breakup and he started sleeping around until one day he realised that he is not that person and when he saw Darcy who was Nick girlfriend everything changed for Tom as he could see how special she was and he wanted to get to know her. When Darcy broke up with Nick because his behaviour changed and things got really ugly and he wouldn't leave her alone Darcy decided to study abroad for a year and she knew that she would miss her friends and Tom but it was something that she had to do. When Darcy returned back to college after spending time away she wasn't looking forward to seeing Nick again and she hoped that he didn't cause trouble again but she was really looking forward to seeing Tom as he had been on her mind a lot. Tom was really pleased to see Darcy again and he wanted to show her that he would be there for her regardless. As Darcy and Tom spend more time together there feelings for each other grew stronger as they had a strong connection and chemistry between them but will it be enough. There are many twists and turns some good, some bad and some unexpected surprises but the characters and storyline pulled you in right from the first page and it was a real page turner and so addictive. I definitely recommend you read this book and others by Lily Foster as she is an amazing author and writer and her books are definitely worth reading.

I wanted to love this book, and at times I really did enjoy the story, but it wasn't my cup of tea. The format was difficult to follow, the way it jumped around so much. I also found it difficult to find any redeeming qualities in the character Tom. It's hard to root for a couple when you don't like the main character.

talk about heartbreak after heartbreak. Can't understand why Tom is so weak and clueless at times. Darcy is such a sweetheart. Love to continue reading all of the series.
