I Only Have Eyes for You is the fourth book in Bella Andre’s The Sullivans series and such an awesome story! It’s my first taste of this author’s writing, but it most certainly will not be my last.
Sophie Sullivan has been in love with Jake McCann since she first laid eyes on him when she was just five years old. She knows that Jake has always seen her as the “nice” girl who’s simply too good for him and his bad boy ways, but Sophie’s decided to pull out all the stops and make him see the real he

I loved it!

I instantly fell in love with Jake as it was obvious that he was a sexy dominant man but had issues and insecurities but kept those from Sophie. When combined with Sophie’s issues and insecurities it made a story that was full of angst which I really liked.

Poor Sophie felt the ‘invisible’ member of her family and had been in love with Jake for years but knew that she just wasn’t in his league and wasn’t the type of girl he would normally go for. Jake was considered to be a bit of a ba

This book was decent for the most part. I do feel like it did not realize its potential. I like the friends to lovers theme. I like the unrequited love theme. I like the falling in love with your brother's best friend theme. This book didn't really take advantage of any of them. The writing was not bad but I felt that the plot was not really tight. The rest of this review is what I would tell this author if I was in a critique group with her. There are major spoilers so read at your own peril.

A worthy addition to this extremely well-done series. This one seemed shorter to me than the others -- maybe because I enjoyed it so much that time just flew by. Both Jake and Sophie were fun characters to get to know. Jake's "secret" caught me completely by surprise but given Sophie's career, it fit well with the storyline. Together they made a wonderful couple and watching their relationship deepen made for a very romantic read.

Also fun to be a part of Chase and Chloe's wedding day and to see

Another winner from this series! I know it's not the most original storyline, but it's sweet, sexy and just downright addictive! Jack McCann and Sophie are perfect for each other, not to mention, I was a little teary in some parts. Loved it!

3.5 Stars

Twenty-five year-old Sophie Sullivan is one of six children. With four overly protective brothers and twin sister, any man she decides to date doesn’t stand a chance. But Sophie doesn’t want just any man; she wants long-time family-friend and bad-boy, Jake. Unbeknownst to either of them, they’ve each harbored a secret crush and longing for the other for years. Sophie feels Jake could never notice her, the “nice” one of the twins, she feels plain and ordinary compared to the other Sulliv

** Content warning - this review will contain an uncomfortable amount of gushing, fan girl squealing and the occasional swoon of excitement **

Loved it. Loved it, loved it, loved it, LOVED IT.

This is exactly the type of romance I crave. The entire story is based on the love between the two protagonists. Nobody is trying to save the world, there isn't a side story that distracts from the relationship and the additional minor characters only play a small role.

4 stars – Contemporary Romance

This started out a strong 4.5 stars, but I got really irritated with Sophie's and Jake's lack of communication. There were too many times I wanted them to actually TALK to each other instead of thinking everything. That's a complaint I have about the previous books in the series as well, but it really annoyed me this time since I liked the H/h better and was more invested in their relationship and HEA. But this is still my favorite of the series so far.

Two months into 2012 and I ONLY HAVE EYES FOR YOU by Bella Andre has raised the bar my for favorite books of 2012 to astronomical heights.

Sophie Sullivan aka NICE to her twin's Lori's NAUGHTY. Sophie has grown up surrounded by the love of her 7 siblings and her mother. Sophie is the "normal" one in a family full of superstars and even with all of their love and companionship she has lived her life in the shadows of their shine. Tired of b

{This review was originally published on Clear Eyes, Full Shelves}

One of my favorite themes is the ever-poignant friends-to-lovers storyline.
What could be more wonderful than a love that develops because of a deep understanding of one another?
What could be more terrible than unrequited love for a "kindred spirit"?
The best part of this storyline, in my opinion, is the balance point, the metamorphoses of a friendship into something more. Bella Andre’s I Only Have Eyes for You seems to rush past th

I love Bella Andre, she can do no wrong in my book.

Bella Andre’s voice as a romance writer just keeps getting stronger and stronger with her SULLIVANS SERIES. The latest volume in the series, #4, is I ONLY HAVE EYES FOR YOU, and it is a keeper, to be read again and again.
Ms Andre writes from the heart so this is a very emotional book. She can find the words to wring laughter, tears, joy, and deep sadness out of her characters as well as her readers, yet wind up with an HEA that brings great satisfaction. I ONLY HAVE EYES FOR YOU is a character-

Marquetta (LoveToReadForFun)
There are two plot points in contemporary romances I am a sucker for and I Only Have Eyes For You had both of them! I absolutely loved this book. I tore through it; I could not put it down. I knew Sophie's book was going to be good but I didn't think it was going to be that good! As much as I like her brothers, Sophie's book is my favorite book of the series. I can't wait to see how Bella Andre is going to top this one. She definitely knocked this one out of the park.

This was fantabulous!! I love this series and this book did not fail my expectations.

Nice girl and the bad boy, who could ask for a better pairing. Jake was yummy and hard core and sensitive and . . . yummy! And Sophie was sweet and caring and adventurous and daring!

Sophie went after what she wanted and got it, big time. Let's add determined to that list above. Even when she gets way more than she bargained for she does not step down and cower in the corner. She preservers and pushes past all of

Can I have 6 stars please!!

I loved this book! Sophie is the youngest Sullivan sibling. She's been in love with Jake McCann since she was five years old. Jake is known as the ninth Sullivan and has always acted like an older brother to Sophie (little did she know Jake's feelings for her weren't brotherly). :)

I immediately fell in love with these two. I cheered for Sophie when she went after Jake and I felt for her when her heart was breaking. I loved that she took ownership of her feelings for J

This is a HEA book lover's guilty pleasure! Jake McCann is a tattooed Irish hunk who had a crappy childhood.
Your alternate text
Despite that, he is now a wealthy owner of numerous Pub's in the San Francisco area. He is also the quintessential bad boy who never thought settling down was something in his future, or something he deserved. He grew up with the Sullivan bunch and his buddies sister Sophie was always off-limits. But one day that changes.

I Only Have Eyes For You is a wonderful book and my favorite of the series. Jake is not your ordinary bad-boy while Sophie is more than her nickname 'nice'. I'm glad we got to see the depth of these two characters beyond the stereotypes everyone else sees.

A sweet story of an always and forever kind of love.

Of all the books in this series, Sophie's story is the one that I looked forward to reading the most. The book nerd in me have always loved a librarian heroine. To top it off, the hero is a childhood friend whom she loved from afar and forever. Needless to say, this one was sure to be a hit. And while Ms. Andre did a phenomenal job telling how their story came to be, I think I was missing some passion, to be honest.

As heated as their encounters were, the desperation to be with one another was la

Blog rating: 4.5/5

This fourth book in Bella Andre’s Sullivan family series is my favorite. The heroine is a quiet, smart, book worm librarian, who has always loved Jake from the moment her little five year old self saw him. Jake is a business man, running a successful chain of pubs, but his life growing up was anything but normal. He had an abusive father and even worse for Jake, he never learned to read. Reading never came easy for him, the only Sullivan

I Only Have Eyes For You is a sweet yet powerfully emotional romance between a "nice" virginal librarian and a rough pub owner struggling with ghosts of his past.

Sophie, the youngest of the 8 Sullivan siblings in this series (together with her twin sister Lori) has always been the nice half of the twins, whereas Lori is known as the naughty one. For 20 years, Sophie has loved and yearned for Jake McCann, a man who's been sort of adopted into the Sullivan family and is best friends with one of h

I have always like Bella Andre because she gives the right amount of romance with the right amount of hot, steamy, sex.
I really like liked this story because I could tell right away that the characters loved each other, even though Sophie had no clue how Jake felt about her. The thing is Ms. Andre let the readers know early how he felt and partly why he didn't want to pursue a relationship with her. I was so glad to see Sophie take some initiative and go after what she wanted.

Oh my stars. This book was way too cute. I sat down one afternoon and read through most of it in an hour and a half, and spent every free moment I had the next day waiting to finish the rest of it. This is my first Bella Andre book, and I cannot wait to pick up the rest of the series, in addition to Bella Andre's other books.

I loved not only the relationship between Jake and Sophie, but also the family dynamics between all the different characters. Even though it is an outwardly what might be a

I swear this series gets better and better. My first thoughts of Jake from the previous book was that he was a hot arrogant ass. Now I am swooning over him. Loved him seriously! He was all torn up inside feeling unworthy and I just wanted to hug him. Sophie was so much better than I thought she would be. She is not just the shy Librarian. Oh no this girl has sass and can be "naughty". Then there was the relationship which took a turn that I didn't see coming and frankly I think I should have, I ...more
