From This Moment On by Bella Andre {Review}

From This Moment On 

(The Sullivans #2)

Kindle Edition
Published August 30th 2011

With FROM THIS MOMENT ON, bestselling author Bella Andre introduces you to Marcus, the second Sullivan bad boy, whose life will never be the same from the moment he meets Nicola….

For thirty-six years, Marcus Sullivan has been the responsible older brother, stepping in to take care of his seven siblings after their father died when they were children. But when the perfectly ordered future he's planned for himself turns out to be nothing but a lie, Marcus needs one reckless night to shake free from it all.

Nicola Harding is known throughout the world by only one name - Nico - for her catchy, sensual pop songs. Only, what no one knows about the twenty-five year old singer is that her sex-kitten image is totally false. After a terrible betrayal by a man who loved fame far more than he ever loved her, she vows not to let anyone else get close enough to find out who she really is...or hurt her again. Especially not the gorgeous stranger she meets at a nightclub, even though the hunger - and the sinful promises - in his dark eyes make her want to spill all her secrets.

One night is all Nicola and Marcus agree to share with each other. But nothing goes as they plan when instead of simply tangling limbs, they find a deeper connection than either of them could have anticipated. And even though they both try to fight it, growing emotions - and sizzling attraction - keep drawing them closer together.

Close enough for them to wonder if stealing one more secret moment together can ever be enough?
First Line(s): Marcus Sullivan was a man on a mission.

Favorite Line(s): “I've hoped for this for so many years, waited for someone to come along whom you could finally love more than your family, someone who would turn you inside-out and toss you off your path,' His mother looked positively gleeful in the face of his misery. 'Someone just like Nicola for you to blow it with.” 

My Review: I loved that Marcus was down earth enough to say he was willing to give it a go with a famous singer and mean it! I think down right heroes are hard to come by in romance novels. Seems the "norm" is to have them have a sense of entitlement or to be cocky. I didn't feel any of this with Marcus. He comes off as a caring and loyal person.

I enjoyed seeing Nicola battle with who she was betrayed to be in the public eye and who she wanted to be, who she was on the inside. This battle made her real and vulnerable which made it really easy to connect with her.

I thought the heat was there but it wasn't going to make you need a shower. More than heat it had romance.

Bella Andre wrote another solid book in The Sullivan series and with so many Sullivan siblings this series could have a very good run.

My Rating:Photobucket

Until next time... Happy Reading!
