5 “Bella Andre Never Disappoints” Stars -Audiobook review

 photo It must be your love_zpsjfnxfsho.jpg

I have been a fan of Bella Andre since the first book I read, The Look of Love. I fell in love with the Sullivan family from the get go. Her books always make me smile, laugh, cry, blush, and just be incredibly happy. The simple truth- reading Bella Andre is reading romance at its finest. There is just simple beauty. There is no foul language, there is just beautiful words culminating in blissful, meaningful, amazing love. The love tha

If I could marry into a fictional family, it would be The Sullivans. There’s just something about this big family that makes me melt. So loving and protective, you as a reader definitely feel as if you are a part of this family as you read the books in this series. One of my good friends asked me if the series begins to wane after so many books already in the series. But I told her that I am so invested in these characters that by the end of the book I’m reading, I am pining for the next one
Read for the URR 2017 New Year's Reading Challenge prompt 'Contemporary Romance' AND for the 2017 POPSUGAR Challenge prompt 'A Book You Haven't Read Before from a Series You Have That Never Fails to Make Me Smile'.

14/1 - I don't know if it's me or the book, but I didn't feel the connection between Ford and Mia. I find Andre's couples are a bit hit or miss for me. The writing is never a problem, the insta-love/lust/connection is always there (which is great because it's a feature of Andre's books

When I was growing up, my favorite author was Danielle Steel, but about 3 or 4 years ago, when I first got my Nook, I found a free book by Bella Andre. I actually read that book within a few hours and knew that there was no way that I couldn’t buy other books written by this author and that I had found a new favorite author. Since that time, I have come to love Bella’s writing (yes, I read ever

But tonight, as his tour bus roared down yet another highway to yet another stadium, Ford finally realized that his songs and audiences could never even come close to filling the hole inside of him. Only one thing—only one person—had ever been able to do that. Only Mia Okay, I think I'm going to like Ford! :) <3

“No matter how hard he tried to stop it, his brain always circled back to Seattle, where he’d spent one incredible week with the most beautiful girl in the world.”

Addictions come in all shapes and sizes, but nothing feels as indulgent and irresistible to me as a new Bella Andre book. Her books were the reason I got hooked on romance, her sensual love stories making me smile for hours and always being the sweetest escape. The latest instalment in The Sullivans series did not disappoin

Wow! Another winner for Bella Andre and her Sullivan series! I absolutely loved Mia & Ford's story! I loved that we also got to hear what was going on with all the other Sullivan's. I can't wait to read what happens next with everyone! I highly recommend all of Bella's work, especially the Sullivan series to anyone that loves a wonderful romance! ...more

I loved the story of Ford and Mia. These books are my all time favorite and I love returning to the Sullivan fold..... What a awesome family they are!!!

Ford was all kinds of sexy and I fell in love with his character immediately. Mia was a great female lead too.

Looking forward to Ian's story next!!!

It Must Be Your Love the 11th book in the Sullivans series but 2nd for the Seattle Sullivans.
Mia Sullivan and Ford Vincent met five years ago, and for one week they were together,that was only in bed, but then it ended and ended badly.
Now five years later, Ford is back and he wants Mia back in his life, to apologize, to ask to start over and he is hoping to start a life together to have love, marriage and family that he has always wanted.
But Mia doesn't take him being back very well. She keep

I love Bella Andre's books and I really love the Sullivans series. This is a nice addition but it didn't particularly stand out to me. I thought Ford was a little on the bland side. I didn't walk away from reading this asking myself 'where do I find myself one of those?'

Mia and Ford had 5 days of bliss 5 years ago. Now with emotional growth on both their parts, Ford recognizes he needs to put on his big boy pants to look for the girl he shouldn't have let get away. We spend this journey watching

This was just your basic love story with no angst or drama, so at times I found myself getting a little bored. I know I'm in the minority with this rating, but I really don't have a whole lot to say about this book since really nothing dramatic took place. That's not to say that Bella is not a good writer, because she is! I've loved some of her other books, but this one just kind of fell short for me!

Well, as the saying goes "you win some, you lose some",

Oh this book is soooo good!!!!! I love the Sullivans & each new book just keeps making the series better & better. The history between Ford & Mia is hot & sad. The fact that it's taken 5 yrs for Ford to figure out what it is he wants is WOW & Mia is what he wants. Mia's not sure about anything & she can't believe that Ford really loves her. Slowly he shows her what it is he truly wants & the sparks start flying. This series is fantastic & I can't wait for the next one to come out. Spring 2014 is ...more

He goes back on the road, she surprises him a week later at a concert only to have her heart broken when she finds him with another girl. They don't see each other or communicate for five years. One day he sees a photo of that long ago concert when they met, realizes she is the love of his life & he needs to get her back....... ...more

I just love read about this family.
They are all so "nice" and happy!
Mia and Ford already had a story when they met again... but although all the hurt that they have had in this last five years, they just couldn't resist to each other...

Ford and Mia met five years ago, fell in love and then it all went to shit because Ford was an immature jerk. Yes, I think that pretty much sums it up.

Thing is, they never stopped loving each other. So, present day, Ford decides that all his fame is nothing compared to having Mia in his life and he decides to get her back.

Just for some background...

Mia is the youngest Sullivan from Seattle. She's got four older brothers, one of whom we met in the previous book - Rafe - and another, Ian, who'll b

       I can’t believe that I’ve read 11 books from the same series. If this says something, then it says that the series is amazing. This book is not different from any other book from this series. This book is so sweet. It is this kind of books that leaves you sighing and wishing to have a romance that look like that one.

First let me say, not only is this my favorite Sullivan book now, it is also the best book I have read this year. Bella Andre outdid herself in this novel. There were so many things to love in addition to the story of the main couple.

Let me start by saying if you are fan of Marcus and Nicola, you will love this book. Marcus and Nicola are my favorite couple of the Sullivan series. And in this book we get to read about their wedding! I was so teary at the way Ms. Andre wrote the wedding scenes. W

Oh my god I just can't get enough of the Sullivan's!
I actually ache when I read about their family reunions. I wish I could find something like that -not saying my family isn't great in their own crazy loving ways- but the Sullivan's are just... Wow. Suddenly you feel like having one sibling and maybe a handful of cousins from the age of 6 to 30 isn't enough lol

There aren't many series where you still feel excited about the next book when there are so many books already in it but with this seri

WOW!! Another great read from Bella Andre. I loved this story. Loved Ford and his determination and stength. I do not even know where to begin. This is why I need to write reviews as soon as I finish a book.

Mia seems like a lost soul at times. Wanting what her cousins and brothers have but the right guy slipped through her fingers 5 years ago. All the guys she dates do not compare to Ford and therefore really does not set her world on fire.

Loved Ford. He was so much more honourable this time a

Another typical sensual, fun and easy to read Bella Andre story.However, only one of her books has been a 5-star read for me, Sophie and Jake's special love story.

The rest of the Sullivans have all been 4 star read for me, as is this story with Mia Sullivan and her rock star Ford. Somehow amidst the sweet, very angst-free story, I kept rolling my eyes and getting distracted by all the hyperbole: Ford can't just be a rock star; he has to have several Grammys and has his lyrics in a special song

I can say this is by far the best of the series.. always said it was Marcus and Nicole's story!!Each book in the Sullivan series gets better and better as each one is released..

A lot can happen in five years like Mia growing some lady balls and giving Ford her two cents, "wow, a whole week without a groupie in your bed," she said in a sarcastic tone. "Do you think that makes what you did any better? Do you think that makes you less of a jerk?" Sometimes Ford has to do a double take on things that comes out of Mia's mouth, "I haven't gotten much rest since Friday," Ford said, "so I'm pretty sure I just hallucinated. You're saying that we should sleep together?" Mia she ...more

Adding a rock star in with the Sullivan's.......brilliant. Bella gave us a really juicy story with Mia and Ford. There was young love, heartbreak, longing and the unexpected reunion. It really had it all. Her characters are so rich and full of life. They are people that I would want to know. They aren't perfect, nor are their expectations. As an established fan of the Sullivan's, I am loving the Seattle clan and getting to know them better. I was thrilled to get to read about Marcus and Nicola's ...more
