4–Swoon Worthy–Stars


From This Moment On is the second book in the Sullivan series and centers on Marcus, the oldest Sullivan brother, and his sultry pop star heroine, Nicola (Nico). I enjoyed this book more than the first. The plot felt tighter and the romance more balanced. Plus, we get to meet the whole Sullivan family in this book. There are SIX brothers and two sisters and, boy, let me tell you, the Sullivan brothers are divine!

The story is about two lonely and somewhat jaded characters who

Marcus Sullivan is my kind of hero. He is thirty-six years old, the oldest of seven siblings, who at fourteen stepped up to help his mom take care of his younger siblings. I love how responsible he is and how much he loves his family. Marcus has always known the kind of future he wanted but when the woman he thought was perfect for him turned out to be a liar and cheat he decides one night of meaningless pleasure i

This is Book #2 of the Sullivan family series, and I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised with this firey gem! I expected a light, lovey, dovey romance (and it was to some degree) but what I got was a hot, steamy, kinky read!

First of all, we have Marcus who is the oldest one out of his seven other siblings. In the last book there was a hint of problems with him and his fiance Jill. This story begins with Marcus walking in on Jill doing the dirty deed with some tattooed and pierced dude, A

The Sullivan clan I love them so much. It’d been awhile since I read this series. And I absolutely fell in love with this story between Nicola and Marcus. They just were meant for one another. I can’t wait to go back to this amazing family. ❤️

Ever since I read Bella Andre’s The Look of Love, the first book in the Sullivans series, I fell in love with the enigmatic Sullivan family. There is just something about this series that pulls you in, perhaps it is the sweet, sensual storyline or the heady romance or the compelling characters – whatever it may be, Ms. Andre’s books are entertaining and hard to resist. From This Moment On is no different. This book has it all, proving once again why I enjoy the contemporary genre.

This book was pretty good! Bella Andre is a solid writer- I felt like I knew both characters and while the relationship moved fast I liked it. The H was 11 years older than the h, but because the h was a famous singer she was more mature than the typical 25 year old. They both just got out of bad relationships with people they didn't really love. The h had only been with 2 men sexually - we don't know what the H was up to before his 2 year relationship with his ex. I fear he might have been a bi ...more

It was good, and introduced the Sullivan family. They're all successful, good looking, and of course each is just a little lonely and searching.

I loved Marcus and Nicola's story! I really enjoyed the first book in the series by Bella Andre but this one was even better. I couldn't put it down. This book has brilliant characters, a great story with depth, emotion, sex and so much romance. I recommend it to all romance lovers. Bella Andre writes great books but I think this is the best so far. Now I'm counting down to Gabe and Meagan story, which I am impatient to get hold of. ...more

I really enjoyed this for awhile, but the second half went downhill fast. Super predictable, though pretty sweet at some points. The love scenes are smoldering, and honestly are the main reason I plan to keep reading. I swooned over Marcus, but absolutely HATED Nicola, "Nico." Ugh! She was obnoxious, even after becoming more sure of herself.

I was very much looking forward to oldest Sullivan brother Marcus' story after meeting him in the first book of this series. Bella Andre's smooth lead-in to his story had me intrigued, I already wanted this brother who shouldered so much of the family burdens to find his true love. It was his time, for sure!

Nicola was an endearing heroine; untrusting after a nasty breakup with her slimy ex, she was struggling keeping up with her fame and figuring out who she really was dee

16/11 - A light, fun, 'read it overnight' kind of book that is the opposite of taxing to the reader's brain. There wasn't much going on other than the interaction between 'whatshisname' (forgotten his name already), oh right! Marcus, and Nicola (every time I read her name I think of those cough drops called Ricola, We didn't learn about Nicola's background through seeing her interact with anyone from her past, we were simply told everything and then the story moved ...more

Holy, hotness! I finished this book last night, and I am still fanning myself! This book was SO GOOD! Seriously, I finished it in less than 24 hours. I don’t know how any other book in the Sullivan series will top this one. Nobody can be better than Marcus. NOBODY!

It's been sometime since I read the first book to this series; and I must admit that it wasn't that memorable to begin with. When I saw that Novel Publicity was hosting a whirlwind tour for this series, I jumped at the chance if only for the reason that I wanted to give this series another chance. Lo, and behold. I actually loved Marcus and Nicola's story.

I have liked some of Andre's books. This one---not really. IMO, this one was just cheesy and irritating.

In the opening, we hear about the Hero's being betrayed by his fiancee, which sends him off looking for a one night stand which is when he meets the Heroine. Other than that backstory, the first 40% of the book is almost all about thoughts/feelings of lust and longing. Sooo many repetitive thoughts of wanting the other person it drove me crazy. And, these thoughts aren't even believable sound

Book 2 in the Sullivan's. It starts up immediately after book 1 which I liked. You quickly find out that Marcus and Nicola have been recently been burned from reality and are looking for a non- commital escape and the last thing the were looking for is what they found .....a deep aching love.

These Sullivans not only have great genes they also have great luck at falling in love at first sight. However in Marcus's case it is so well deserved and you w

4.5 stars. From This Moment On is the second book in the Sullivan series and centers around the oldest brother Marcus. He has spent most of his adult life being a father figure to his younger siblings. What can I say about Marcus other than to describe him as So Dreamy. He is the strong, silent type who happens to like being a bit bossy in the bedroom. Nicola was an extremely likeable character. She is a famous popstar who has been burned in the past by the people around her, causing her to be v ...more

BOY WAS MARCUS HOT, I LOVED that he was able to let his Dominant side out!!!!!!

I loved Chase and Chole's story, but I loved Marcus and Nico's even more!!!

Marcus has been the responsible one and the care taker of his family for years. He ends up ending a relationship with who he thought was going to be "the one". Nico is a famous pop-star who was betrayed by her last boyfriend, the public perceives her as a wild child, but she really isn't. Marcus and Nico decide to visit a club to take a walk on
The Sullivans by Bella Andre is a contemporary romance series I've been reading out of order (depending which book is Kindle freebie at the moment).

- Interesting take to the one night stand relationship, I felt the immediate connection too
- Marcus was such a loving, big, strong hero I cheered for him to find his partner and HEA.
- Nicola was strong and independent, I liked how she took charge of her singing carrier.

- BDSM tendencies (totally unnecessary)

I enjoyed this book more than the first in the series (which was no easy feat as I loved the 1st and gave it 5 stars as well!) I think what took it into 5+ star category was how much I loved Marcus's dominant side. Hello hotness! It seemed to be exactly what Nicola needed. Nothing I can think of to detract from this book - other than the fact that I'm not sure when the next one is coming out and the wait will be torture :) ...more
