Expanded Edition! More Story! More Sullivans!

Fans of Bella Andre’s Sullivan Series will love this long-awaited print edition of FROM THIS MOMENT ON. It features a longer, more-detailed story with all the emotion and sensuality that readers love. Not to be missed!

Just one night.

Marcus Sullivan has always been the responsible older brother, stepping in to take care of his seven siblings when their father died. But when the perfectly ordered future he’s planned turns out to be a lie, Marcus needs one reckless night to shake free from it all.

Known throughout the world by only one name, Nico, pop songstress Nicola Harding is seen as the ultimate sex kitten. But it's all a lie. After a terrible betrayal she refuses to let anyone else close enough to find out who she really is, or to hurt her again. Especially the gorgeous stranger at the bar.

One night is all Nicola and Marcus agree to share with each other. But instead, a deeper connection than either of them could have anticipated begins.

Book One: The Look of Love

From This Moment On was just a little too far-fetched for me to get into.  I know that most contemporary romances involve hard to imagine situations, but this was just a little too many long shots for me.  I found myself flipping through many intimate scenes scanning for dialog instead of enjoying the hot moments.

Now that I've criticized the storyline, the characters were the exact opposite.  I really enjoyed Nicola and Marcus as people.  They were fun and if the circumstances had been different I think I would have enjoyed their romance.  Their first meeting and night together were fantastic and if there had been more like that I know I would have loved it.

Now this is a series that has tons of great reviews, so if you're thinking about it don't let me turn you off.  I enjoyed book one and book three (review soon).  And while the didn't knock my socks off, I will be giving the series another shot with book four.
