Sweet and Sexy read, and I have always had a soft spot for the books that take place out in the country! It was highly amusing to see a city girl try her hand at becoming a rancher's helper. Lori gave it her all, and while she did that she fell in love with the grumpy Greyson! I loved this couple together, and I have to say that this book was hands down my favorite of the series so far.
Lori is the last of her eight siblings to fall in love, and now the series is going to start focusing on the

I've said it before and I will say it again….this series is gooood. After reading book one you'll end up wishing you were part of this

Posted on Buried Under Romance

The long-awaited story of Lori Sullivan, talented dancer of the Sullivans, is here! This marks the last of this branch of the Sullivans and tells a tale of forgiveness and learning again to trust in love.

Lori Sullivan, nicknamed "Naughty," is actually not all that naughty. She's easy to trust and easy to give out love, which gives this tender-hearted beauty such an innocent, endearing nature underneath the tough act she puts up. After a devastating emotional

I read a LOT of romances. I love reading romances and people love to tease me that it is the only thing I read. Well..they are not far from wrong as it is one of my favourite genres and I do read a lot of it and enjoy doing it.

The beauty of romances is that you are assured, almost always, of a happy ever after ending. And be it movies or books, I just love myself a HEA, which brings a smile to my lips, a gleam in my eyes that is often combined with a certain softening and a feeling of

Bella Andre presents readers with one of the most anticipated books in the Sullivans series. Lori Sullivan aka Naughty has always been the firecracker of the family. She has been the rock, the troublemaker and most lovable of the bunch. But when her heart is broken, who will be there to comfort her?

Lori takes a complete break from her dance career and goes on an impulsive trip that takes her to a farm far away from anything that can hurt her again. She applies for a job as a farmhand and

A little bit naughty and a whole lotta nice! Lori Sullivan’s long awaited book hit the fantastic button with me. Of all the Sullivan books, Bella Andre’s latest is my very favorite.

“Always on My Mind” was a minefield full of emotions just waiting to erupt. Expect the unexpected and that’s just what you get as Lori’s story unfolds. Every foregone conclusion I had concerning Lori and what her future might bring came to a grinding halt. No way would I ever have imagined that glamorous and talented

“Oh, Grayson… Don’t they know better than to wait for an invitation when the only thing that works with you is just showing up and refusing to leave?”

It’s with bittersweet anticipation that we awaited the last book in The Sullivans series and personally, this was the story that I wanted to read the most. One by one, the Sullivan siblings met the loves of their lives, and one by one, they found their happily-ever-afters. We watched Lori “Naughty” Sullivan witness it all, rejoice in her

Received from Author for Honest review

Oh my gosh, so I fell in love with the Sullivan’s this year. I figured when I started this series I would like them, but I had no idea how invested in their lives I would become. I still have a few of them I have to review, but since Always on My Mind just released last week, I decided to go out of order.

I have been a big fan of Bella Andre's from first chapter in the very first book..but Lori's story certainly lived up to all I had expected..and who doesn't love a sexy cowboy like Grayson??I was again hooked the minute I opened the book and began to read.. So much heart ache for both of them.. their pain and suffering..Truly I wondered every time how Bella is going to top the last book.. but each time she does it with authority and from her heart.

I thoroughly enjoyed Lori and Grayson story. Wow I loved it so much that at the end it make me cry. Lori has a strong personality all thru the series. Grayson and Lori are perfectly match together. I so loved the ending. I mean words are deeply not enough to describe how happy I am that I get a fat chance to read all this. Well still have 1 more book to go. Book 1 I know I'm reading it backwards. Nevertheless I know it will rock my day as the other series did.

Thanks Bella! Can't wait to read the

reading should not feel like a chore which this book and it's appalling writing turned it into. so many unnecessary sentences, too many. also again with love declarations after 2 weeks! it's not that I mind insta love so much usually but the way this author does it is just off-putting with it's unrealness.

While I would have liked to see a bit more conflict with Grayson's character as the book progressed, Lori's character made me laugh - a lot! Dancer turned farmhand... how can that not be entertaining? :)

I am in love with the Sullivans. The Sullivans are a large, one-of-a-kind family that’s made up of 8 magnificent and unique siblings.

Chase – Photographer (The Look of Love)
Marcus – Winery (From This Moment On)
Gabe – Firefighter (Can’t Help Falling in Love)
Sophie (Nice) – Librarian (I Only Have Eyes For You)

While I enjoyed this last Sullivan sibling book, I had a slight problem with how the main characters met. It just didn't work for me, but I was happy with how everything worked out for them. I don't want to give anything away so I'm not including any details about that. *winks* I was anxious to finally read who Lori aka Naughty would end up with. Because she's such a strong, driven female character, I knew the man who would be with her would have to be really to handle her. He was, oh yes he ...more

December 2016 Review:

This was an incredible read. I love the Sullivans series. The writing and the characters are so amazing and I just love reading this series every year. I loved Lori and Grayson's story. This is a typical love story. A cowboy meets city girl, they are antagonistic towards each other then fall in love with each other.

Lori is a member of the San Francisco Sullivans who is a dancer and choreographer. Grayson is a Farmer who operates a CSA (he offers the community fruits and
LOVED, LOVED, LOVED!!!! This was the one that I was most worried about. I really didn't good feelings about this one because I really didn't get a good sense of who Lori was in the previous books. We know her as "naughty", but she's so much more. And I LOVED the way that the author highlighted this.

I loved the interplay between Lori and Grayson. And I LOVED the way that she just blew into his life. LOL, I chuckle even now as I'm thinking about it. It was just so perfect. I'm so glad that I gave

Didn't really care much for Grayson in the first half of the book, but he comes around in the end. Love Lori throughout, she's the life of the story! Wish there had been a few more scenes with all the siblings though, I'm sad to see this part of the Sullivan's end. But ready for Rafe!

I was not familiar with Bella Andre or her work but for some reason almost a year back a few of her books caught my eye. They happened to be the first 3 in “The Sullivan’s” series. I put them in my wish list for later review. Every time I was in the wish list I saw them and said maybe next time. Well finally I went to her webpage and saw there was an entire series (8 books) so I was in between series or waiting for new releases to my existing series when I said what the heck I’ll give it a shot. ...more

Update: March 31st, 2019

I just finished rereading the Mass Market Paperback of this book and OMG! IT DOESN'T HAVE THE EPILOGUE THE KINDLE VERSION INCLUDES! I've already contacted Amazon, I don't know if my book is the only one without it? LOL, but I do hope they can solve the problem if other books have the same issue. If you're a new reader thinking about checking out this story, PLEASE READ THE KINDLE VERSION! THAT format has THE COMPLETE STORY.

I read this book before the ones before it because I loved Sophie’s book so much (I ONLY HAVE EYES FOR YOU), more than the boys’ books and Icouldn'twait to read the other girl’s in the family book.

I honestlycouldn'twait to read Lori’s book from the start. I wanted to know; what is her deal with that doucheof a boyfriend that all of her siblings wanted her to leave him. I loved that at the beginning of the story she was leaving him

Once again, Bella Andre delivers a hit. I could not wait to get my hands on Lori's book. I had theories and hopes about who she would end up with and never in my wildest dreams would I have picked Grayson for her. However, I was SO SO happy with her match and was thrilled to see Lori get her HEA.

I have to say that Sophie's story is still probably my favorite, but I loved getting Lori's story. They are such different characters, yet both consuming. Lori Sullivan is the feisty twin. Her nick name

Because Grayson is a super hot name. So I immediately decided off of his name alone that I am going to enjoy this book. Not to mention Bella is one if my FAVORITE authors. Still I have been looking forward to Lori's book and when I read her POI was named Grayson I was sold. Just saying!

I don't know what it is about Lori and Sophie but out of the eight so far those two are my favorite. You fall for Lori throughout the first 7 books so, you're excited when she finds her match and oh! what a match he is. Oh Grayson! He just breaks my heart with his cemented heart but Lori finds a sledge hammer and breaks her way in there.

Once his walls are down Grayson is something special. His love for Lori had me on a

I was eagerly awaiting Lori's story. I always liked the little glimpses we got of her in the previous 7 books. I have to say I was a little underwhelmed. Don't get me wrong, as a stand alone, it was a really good book. If I had never read any other book in this series, and knew nothing of Lori, I would have rated this close to five stars. But after getting those glimpses of her, and reading the other stories, this one didnt thrill me.

In the previous books, we see Lori as a force of nature,

I love The Sullivan family so much that I want them to adopt me

Lori's story is the final installment to the The Sullivan family 8, and now I hear that Bella Andre is going to continue this series with the The Sullivan's cousins :D If their story is as good as these last 8 have been, then I will be reading those as well :D

What I love about this series is how close this family is and this book continues to show the love that they have for each other. Lori and Grayson's story is equally romantic

I love all the Sullivan's but admit this one was the most anticipated story, Naughty has been so hungry for love that she made some bad choices and sacrificed herself somewhere along the way. Grayson is such a loving person who struggles with his own self worth after failing to detect his wife's alcoholism and therefore he couldn't prevent her death. Both characters had to learn to forgive themselves before they could open up to a love that is true and would last forever. So gratifying to see ...more
