World-renowned artist Drake Sullivan doesn't paint women. Ever. Not when he knows all too well just how destructive painter/muse relationships can be. But on the day Rosa Bouchard walks onto the cliffs outside his Montauk cottage, Drake is so captivated that he can't stop himself from bringing her life on canvas.

Shocked and horrified by the nude photos of her that have

"Now That I've Found You" by Bella Andre

My Thoughts...

This novel was right up there with all the other Sullivan novels by this author...and this one "Now That I've Found You was simply excellent! And yes, I have read them all. Truly Drake Sullivan [sexy and intense] and Rosa Bouchard [sweet and passionate] were definitely meant for each

Really liked this first book in the new branch of the Sullivan series. Drake is a fantastic character and Rosa and him together make for an awesome couple. Fantastic series, and I can't wait for the next one!

The Sullivans are back. I have loved getting to know this family over the years. This was the first time that I was able to find an immediate kinship with the two characters before I had the chance to fulling be invested in their romance. I loved watching Drake and Rosa fall. This was not a copy of what has been done in the series. This was an opening to a different beginning for two souls. The reality star and an artist did not seem to make a connection but the path they were both on showed ...more

Ok, as I started this book, I was like OMG, is this going to be the first Bella Andre book that I dont absolutely love? I wasnt sure where she was taking us with a Reality TV Star and an artist so I was a little skeptical. Then, I really got into the meat of the story and was like OMG, I guess I should have known better than to think that.

Drake Sullivan is definitely living up to the Sullivan name, even though he is just a cousin. Hes

Drake is an artist in a cabin which seems to be situated in the middle of nowhere. One day he sees a woman on his cliffs, he is immediately concerned that she could be hurt physically so he goes out to see her but he realises that shes hurt emotionally. Shes been affected by recent events in her life and he can see that she is troubled. The one thing that I love about Drake is that regardless of the fact that its cold and raining, he goes out with the sole intention of making sure this woman who ...more

2.5 stars I wanted to like this more than I did, but Rosa is constantly like "I'm trash, you deserve better, I won't drag you down with me, blah blah blah" and I just couldn't fucking stand it! She was a terribly weak person most of the time and I found myself thinking "Yeah, Drake does deserve better... like somebody with a god damn backbone!" I almost DNF'd it a few times, but I really wanted to see what happened with the paintings. Lo and behold, nothing happens. *sigh*

Loved Drake and Rosa's story. Drakes's love and patience for Rosa and showing her what love can be makes the reader fall in love with both of them. Looking forward to Suzy's story.

If you follow my blog, then it's no surprise to you that I love Bella Andre's Sullivan series. Earlier in the year I caught up on all of the Sullivan books (there are a lot of them) and I was really excited to read the first in the New York Sullivan series, Now That I've Found You. However, I love listening to Bella Andre's book on audio (I love the narrator, Eva Kaminsky) and I had to wait an extra 4 months from the ebook release until the audio was released. Luckily, it was worth it, as I ...more

When I heard Bella Andre was making the New York Sullivans, I was excited because the series gets to continue, and there was the promise of new great love stories to come. Each characters finds their true love in different ways and it is an very fun read.

I love the Sullivan's!

The New York Sullivan's are just as sweet and sexy as the Seattle and San Francisco clan.
I was immediately drawn into Drake and Ross's story . It was sad and sweet all rolled into one.
Bella Andre always delivers for me. Can't wait to read about the other's!

Quick read. I like this series about the Sullivans. This is the first about the New York Sullivans. The characters are likable and the love scenes are good. It's just that all the issues are neatly resolved - it seemed too pat for me but still enjoyed it and will read the next in the series.

I wanted to cry along with Rosa once I found out what was going on with her. I hated that she felt like she was at fault with what happened to her, when in reality she was taken advantage of in a big way. It was worse when she didn't get the support she needed from her family. Drake was a bit of an oddball, but exactly what Rosa needed. Their courtship was a bit because the start of it Rosa wasn't clued in that it was even going on. It was great that Drake brought in help from his extended ...more

Drake Sullivan is swoon worthy! This New York cousin does not let you down. He is hiding out trying to regain his passion for his painting when he finds our troubled heroine having the worst day of her life right on the jagged rocks along the coast of his cabin. He begins to understand "Love at First Sight" that his cousins have experienced. Rosa is insecure and wounded but along the way she allows the newfound love they share to heal her and it gives her strength to overcome some powerful ...more
Had been looking forward to this one... Read and waited patiently for each book in the Sullivan serie. However this is the first time I did not like the story. It just didnt work for me. Everything was rushed and I did not feel anything between the characters. I gave up several times in finishing the book. Really hope the next one will be as good as the others.

A new series on the Sullivans and one that I was excited about. However, I felt a little disappointed with how the story went. I felt it similar to The Look of Love where Chase finds Chloe in a bad situation and helps her, sparks follow, they fell in love and they've found their true love.

I wish there was more depth to this story and Rosa's character wasn't as strong as I'll like her to be. I don't believe her age was revealed but she seemed young probably in her early 20s from how I read her vs

Disclaimer: I was given an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I have read all the Sullivan series of books and was excited about meeting the New York branch of the Sullivan family tree. Unfortunately, I was a bit disappointed. The book seemed superficial to me and a bit hard to believe.

Drake is an artist searching for inspiration for his painting. Rosa, a reality tv star, is hiding out after nude photos of her surfaced on the internet and she stumbles onto Drakes property.

This book was beautiful. The writing is amazing. But let's talk about the audiobook! It's not easy finding an audio/narrator I like. Eva Kaminsky did an AMAZING job. She was so spot on. The opening scene was so touching and it needed the perfect level of emotion. Eva brought it. I was stuck on this book.
Okay, back to the book itself. I may love rockstars to a fault, but an artist in a funk? *fans self* Whoo, Drake is something. I hate what Rosa was going through, on top of missing her father.

I received a ARC for an honest review.

I know this is the 15th Sullivan Book but Drake did not disappoint. I like how she continues to add some of the characters from the previous Sullivan's. This about Drake Sullivan and Rosa. Drake is the 1st of the NY Sullivan's. I like how the story is handles reality TV shows. Drake is a seriously swoon-worthy artist who is hidden away in his cabin, trying to find inspiration to paint. Rosa is a disgraced reality tv star hiding out after a terrible scandal

I would give this book 3.5 stars. I enjoyed the story. I did expect the story to go a certain way and was pleasantly surprised when it didn't. However, there was just not enough of the story to feel strongly for either hero/heroine. Looking forward to the next book in the series.

Where does Now That I've Found You rank among all the audiobooks youve listened to so far?
It's one of those books that I would listen to more than once. Especially as I listen to more of the Sullivan family.

Have you listened to any of Eva Kaminskys other performances before? How does this one compare?
Ms. Kaminsky has a very pleasant voice. It allows you to listen to the story she is telling and forgetting everything around you. You forget time - she pulls you in to the world of the Sullivans. So

Oh, I loved it so much! I loved the main characters, I loved their background, I loved the narration and the writing! I have that I have not followed the series from the beginning. Because the Sullivans are a big family and Now That Ive Found You is book #15 from The Sullivans and book #1 from The New York Sullivans. I am so behind!

You will fall in love with the sexy artist Drake.

Bella Andre is another of my favorite authors. Her Sullivan Series is amazing. I am thinking about starting over from the beginning rereading the series just so I can give a review on here so other people will see how amazing the books are and pick up a copy and read it. But the reason I am starting with this book, is because the New York Sullivan's book 2 just came out and I wanted a refresher before I dove into that book.

Again I was struck by the strong sense of family love and acceptance that is the recurring theme throughout this series. This story was such a pleasant reading experience and highly entertaining. Bella Andre gets it right every time.

Drake Sullivan needs inspiration and for the first time he is not finding it. That is until he sees a sobbing woman on the beach in front of his cabin. He is mesmerized by the heartbreak rolling off of her. Too quickly she disappears. When he runs into Rosa again,

This was such a beauty audiobook! From the very first few minutes I was pulled into this story and it didnt let go for a single minute. I usually think theres nothing hotter than a sexy bad-boy, but artist Drake Sullivan had me swooning al over the place! Hes loving, caring, protective and sexy as hell. Rosa was vulnerable and hurt, but didnt come off as weak for me. I loved how she ultimately finds her strength and ability to open up and love Drake. Together those two are magic.
