In the forth book in the Sullivans, Sullivan sister Sophie has been in love with family friend Jake since she was five years old, but Jake is someone of a ladies man and would never look twice at librarian Sophie.
At her brother's wedding Sophie decides to make a chance that will get her noticed by Jake, but although it does the job and she get her chance for a night with Jake and something completely life changing extra, Sophie is determined to see it all through.
Jake has been in love with Sophie forever, but he knows he isn't good enough for the beautiful woman. When she seduces him, he can help but take her up on her proposal, but afterward he realizes what a mistake it would be to let Sophie know how much he loves her.
Although this is a pretty worn out subject matter in romance, I love Bella Andre's voice throughout her stories. There is just enough of the other characters in the series to let know you how the relationship with the rest of the Sullivans has shaped the two main characters in this story. The bedroom scenes are erotic, but not over the top. Very well done.
Get ready for another Sullivan to fall in love in Bella Andre's bestselling contemporary romance series!
Sophie Sullivan, a librarian in San Francisco, was five years old when she fell head over heels in love with Jake McCann. Twenty years later, she's convinced the notorious bad boy still sees her as the "nice" Sullivan twin. That is, when he bothers to look at her at all. But when they both get caught up in the magic of the first Sullivan wedding, she knows it's long past time to do whatever it takes to make him see her for who she truly is...the woman who will love him forever.
Jake has always been a magnet for women, especially since his Irish pubs made him extremely wealthy. But the only woman he really wants is the one he can never have. Not only is Sophie his best friend's off-limits younger sister...he can't risk letting her get close enough to discover his deeply hidden secret.
Only, when Sophie appears on his doorstep as Jake's every fantasy come to life-smart, beautiful, and shockingly sexy-he doesn't have a prayer of taking his eyes, or his hands, off her. And he can't stop craving more of her sweet smiles and sinful kisses. Because even though Jake knows loving Sophie isn't the right thing to do...how can he possibly resist?
