Skiplayer1 - Wow. Great read.
I felt devastated for Rosa because of her situation. I was glad that everything worked out at the end and that she found love and a great place to call home. This was a great read.
Avid Reader QC - A fun read from start to finish
From our first glimpse of a Sullivan and their love to be, we are intrigued by their character and motivation, surprised by plot developments, and happy to be around them.
A fun fast read from start to finish.
LJ Moongal - Sullivan’s Great story
Another great story that can stand alone or be read as part of series
jane2053 - Now that I found you
sbsbrinson - Another great Sullivan love story
The story of Drake and Rosa is as heartwarming as it is sexy and romantic. Interwoven in this story are two scenarios. The first is the power of the internet to distort and destroy because to some people money if far more important than integrity and basic decency. The second is how a family is torn for thirty years and the misconceptions and misunderstandings have kept them distant but together.

Loved the story. Great author and great reads.
Tiggy/Cookie - Now That I’ve Found you
First time reading this author. Not a love story. Two strangers hook up and spend most of the time having sex.
Pat whose angry - Now that I have found you
I have read all of her books but iBooks won’t download this one and I am so dang angry and I can’t get support from anyone. I guess I won’t read anything from ibooks anymore.
Teri_McM - Now That I've Found You
I am a huge fan of Bella Andre and have read and enjoyed all of the books in the Sullivan series. As I read this latest book I found myself thinking that it seemed like a recycled version of Chloe and Chase's story...Drake comes upon Rosa in a storm, just like how Chase and Chloe met. Rosa was running from the paparazzi just like Chloe was running from her ex. Rosa wasn't sure she could trust Drake and didn't want to expose him to her messy life just like Chloe wasn't sure she could trust Chase after her ex-husband's treatment of her. Rosa had her embroidery and Chloe had her quilting. Except for Rosa's issues with her mother and Drake's issues with his Dad, the story was just too similar. Entertaining and heartwarming on one level, but disappointing on another level. If it's your first Bella Andre book, however, then you'll really enjoy it.
Stefaniereview - Bella Andre has done it again!!
Bella Andre has done it again!!! If you want a great read, you just have to pick any book by Bella Andre! This is a continuation of her Sullivan Series and an introduction to the New York side of the family and the first in the New York series.
Drake Sullivan is a world famous painter who at first is creatively blocked and extremely afraid of making the same mistakes his Dad made as an artist. He will not paint a woman and let her become his obsession. His father lost his passion for painting after losing his Mom and object of most of his paintings. As a result, Drake has never had a close relationship with his Dad.
Rosalind Bouchard is a Reality TV personality, that has been hurt and betrayed by a greedy person who has taken nude pictures of her without her knowing about it. He sells them and they are all over the news and the internet. Rosa goes off the grid and ends up on a cliff out side Drake's cabin. She feels so violated and loses her trust in herself and everyone. She does not know who she can trust or how to handle the situation.
When Drake spots her out side her cabin, he is drawn to her and mildly obsessed, in a good way. His creativity explodes and he wants to paint her. He fights it because of his fears. Through a series of fateful incidents, Drake ends up running into Rosalind. He becomes her protector and helps her without pressuring her. He sees the true girl behind the protective wall, he sees the strong, resilient and determined Rosa (her preferred name), even though she does not see it herself.
Will Drake give in to his need to paint Rosa and possibly fall into the same pitfall his Dad did or will he let himself find true love like his cousins have done in previous books? Will Rosa finally trust in herself and her growing feelings for Drake or will she continue running and shut out everyone?
This is a story of healing and believing in oneself as well as following your heart and passions in life. You immediately connect with each and every character in the book. You feel their pain, their joy, and need for healing as well as their connection to each other. There are so many sweet and steamy elements to the story that make you keep reading. As with all of Bella Andre's books, you cannot put it down. I was given an Advanced Reader copy in exchange for an honest review. I can honestly say, it is a fantastic read and book! I loved every page!
MoMoD2 - Love
This story is fantastic. I enjoyed the love story, especially the dedication and loyalty exhibited by the family! The way Bella Andre (author) used loss and hardship to develop this beautiful storyline kept my eyes glued to the pages.
Vadebbi - Finally...The New York Sullivans!
This is the 15th book in the Sullivan series. The first set was about the San Francisco Sullivans and then the Seattle Sullivans. This installment is our first look at the New York Sullivans. Whenever I get a new Bella Andre book, I make sure I have enough time to devote to it because I know that once I start, I won't be able to put it down!
Drake is a famous, wealthy painter who has hit a dry spell. He then meets Rosa, who is all the inspiration he needs to paint again. She is a reality tv star who is on the run due to nude photos, taken without her knowledge, that are now all over the Internet. Rosa tries to fight her feelings for Drake, but their chemistry is off the charts! If you think you would be interested in a beautiful couple, both inside and out, with a realistic contemporary storyline, in a setting you would love to go to on your next vacation, then this is the book for you!
This book, like all of the others in the series, is a full-length standalone with a HEA, that can be read in any order. One of the San Francisco Sullivans, Smith, plays a small part in the book, but Bella gives enough information about him that someone new to the series could easily start by reading this one first. With that being said, I really enjoyed reading them in the order they were written.
I was gifted with a copy of this book for an honest review. This book is another of Bella Andre's that rates 5 stars. I am now eagerly awaiting the next book in the series about Suzanne, Drake's sister. I highly recommend this book and ALL of the Sullivan series. You will not be disappointed!
Clpenchi - Another one out of the park!
Bella wrote another great book. The characters make you think that you are one of the Sullivan family and you get to feel like you are invited to one of the famous Sullivan parties. While reading about the moody artist and the Hollywood brand name starlet your feelings for the happy ending are up and down. This book is well integrated with the series but easily a stand alone book as well. Another home run book.
cmatinale - Now That I Found You
Another winner from Bella Andre! Just love the New York Sullivan's. What a wonderful love story! A must read!
Debskm - 5.0 out of 5 stars The first in the New York Sullivans...Can't wait for the others!
I have followed all of the Sullivans from San Francisco to Seattle and now to New York, and loved them all. I almost feel like a stalker peeking in to see what they are up to, but I am really looking forward to all of the New York Sullivans. Drake and Rosa's story was the introduction of the cousins from New York, and most of the story was about Drake and Rosa and a more intimate detail on their falling in love and healing old family hurts, with the mention of Smith and Drake's father, brothers and sister. The last half of the book was better for me with the introduction of the rest of Drake's family and the interactions of them all with their father and each other. For me that was when Rosa really came alive and and the book peaked. After reading "Now That I've Found You", I cannot wait to read the next story of this clan. Looking forward to Suzanne Sullivan's story this fall. Thank You to Bella Andre and her team for gifting me with an ARC of "Now That I've Found You" and only asking for my honest review. 4.5 Stars!
emilyk52281 - Fantastic!
"Now That I've Found You" (New York Sullivans Book 1/ Sullivans Series Book 15) by Bella Andre is a fantastic read! I loved Drake and Rosa. This is an excellent addition to the Sullivans Series. I'm anxious to read what will happen next in "Since I Fell For You" (New York Sullivan's Book 2). Looking forward to getting to know the rest of the New York Sullivans! Highly recommend to all fans of romance and close families.
PattiA810 - Now That I’ve Found You
I love the Sullivan family. I was so excited that we get to know the New York cousins.
I enjoyed Drake and Rosa's story but for me it did lack the intensity and dimension of the San Francisco and Seattle Sullivans.
Drake and Rosa have reasons why they shouldn't have a relationship however, their attraction and magnetism cannot be denied. I thought they balanced each other allowing their reservations to slowly diminish and giving them the safe space to accept their love.
I was surprised by the relationship between Drake and his father, William. I understand the tragedy of Drake's mother's death and how William blames himself for it but, it just seems out of character for a Sullivan not to have a better handle on things. Of course, this dynamic mirrors Rosa's situation with her mother which allows a greater understanding and kinship between Drake and Rosa.
I liked it but, not my favorite of the Sullivans.
Cheryl Stork - Love Drake and Rosa
Drake Sullivan is the youngest brother of four siblings and an amazing well know artist like his father was but he has not been inspired to paint in a few months and has hidden himself in his cabin in the Hampton's to try and find some inspiration that's where he first sees a young woman crying on the cliffs he goes to check on her and he is awe struck.
Rosa Bouchard is running from some awful things happening in her public life and doesn't know what to do and trust no one until she meets Drake and he is so different then what she is used to but she still wants to run. Drake wants to help her but she doesn't want to drag him into her mess.
This a sweet sexy and well written romance. We also get to see how some of the cousins are doing as well. It's a must read.
I was given an ARC of this book for my honest review
JanisLB - Now That I’ve Found You
Drake and Rosa… wow… once again a wonderful book from Bella. I have followed this series since Book #1. Can’t wait for Book #16. I an a HUGE FAN of Bella Andre. She has never let me down. Bella’s writing paints the perfect picture. You can always picture the places she is describing. Helps put a great perspective on things. I love the way the family is always supportive in her books.
LuviBook - Blown away!
When you think, Bella had done it all, she captivates you yet with another amazing story. "Now that I have found" is an exquisite balance of self-doubt, fear, need for alone time and curiosity, attraction and taking a chance, even if it is against everything they always thought they would not do (paint a woman in his case, and trust again in her case). I love Drake Sullivan: charming, strong and kind as all Bella’s Sullivans men, yet with a sensitive and artistic side, and may-be the most surprising and more important for me a complicated relationship with his father. But above all, I really love Rosa who brings layers of complex emotions yet she finds a way to find her true self, her balance and respect herself! Finally, the location is anything but what I expected being a New York setting which made it even more special and allowed the characters to connect and create an intense love story that is incredibly well narrated and vivid in beautifil sceneries. Thanks Bella for blowing this one out of the water, and making me want to discover Drake’s siblings in the rest of the New York Sullivans’ serie…. like yesterday!
Zoeisgrandma - OMG I just fall in love with a whole family.
I just completed my first book in The Sullivan's, "Now That I Found You". I had swore that I was not going to buy any more series but I just brought the whole set. I loved Bella Andre style of writing and she pulls you in from the start. I just picked up my summer reading list. This is a family you will fall in love with. Reminds me of all of my family series from Nora Roberts or Lori Foster once you start reading you have to find out what happened to the rest and what's happening to the ones you've already read about. Each book is a stand alone but trust me you want yo get the whole set.
Shobeteener - Now That I've Found You
I received a free ARC in exchange for an honest review.
I am so thrilled to be reading about the Sullivan's t again. They are such a close knit family and such a joy to read about. Their cousins are no different, though their past is a little darker and not filled with love.
Drake Sullivan is a famous painter. His father was a famous painter that stopped painting after Drake's mom passed. Drake is having a block. And is unable to find inspiration to paint anything. He's feeling a lot of pressure as he has a show in a couple weeks and no paintings.
He looks out his cabin and sees a captivating woman and notices she is crying. Before he is able to help her or find out who she is she disappeared.
Later in town he discovers by a magazine tabloid heading that she is Rosalind (Rosa) a reality TV star. She went into hiding after someone hide a video camera in her hotel room and took pictures of her undressing. They sold the pictures to the tabloids. She is devastated and doesn't feel she has her mom's support.
Drake helps her out when her car breaks down and convinces her that he wants nothing in exchange. In exchange she allows Drake to paint her.
There is instant attraction between these two and Drake helps Rosa discover her hobby is actually very beautiful art. Through Rosa Drake rediscovers the beauty of painting/drawing.
They help each other with their own issues from their past.
I loved their interactions and getting to know the Sullivan cousins better.
Reader..... - Now that I've found you
Loved the whole story.... I have read the “San Francisco and Seattle Sullivans” and loved reading all about the Sullivan's. I just felt that the ending to this book ended a bit unfinished. But i can't wait to read the next one. 👍
MelissaNY666 - Books 15 NY Sullivan's- Drake and Rosa
Even in the small parts of NY you can find LOVE. This book give a small introduction of the Williams' children with hopes for books to come. I have read all 15 books and they only get better. Bella's style of writing is great for family series. I can't wait to read book 16 because it's like visiting with Friends.
BRenczkowski - Grerat book, can't wait for more NY Sullivans!
This is my very favorite Bella Andre’s book and it deserves more than 5 stars!!! I love the New York Sullivans and look forward to more in this series.
This books is about an artist Drake Sullivan who is in the Hampton’s trying to get his groove back since he has seem to have lost his spirit for painting. He also doesn’t paint women but then he sees a woman, Rosa Bouchard, on the cliffs outside his cottage and gets the feeling he just has to paint her. The story goes on about all the difficulties Rosa is dealing with being a reality TV star who just had nude pictures of her splashed all over the media so she is trying to hid. Drake never felt this this way about a woman and the need to paint her. The characters are so fully developed you feel like you are in the story with them even the lovable dog, Oscar.
I received the book for an honest review and I highly recommend it. I also cannot wait to read more about the New York Sullivans.
Aatirzafar97 - Artistic
This might be the best book you put out. Loved it. Well done Bella! It was worth the wait!
goofysandra - A must read for any fan of the Sullivan Series!
I love the Sullivan series. While overall, I enjoyed the story and romance between Rosa and Drake, I felt that the story could have had more depth and development.
The romance aspect of the book is hot and sexy. It is a love at first sight romance, which is totally believable and acceptable to me. (I know some people don't like that, but hey it does happen.) I did feel the instant connection between Rosa and Drake. I liked how we get to see Rosa through Drake's artist eyes. They make a great couple and give each other the encouragement and strength to deal with the issues life has thrown at them.
The story deals with the real life issue of cyber bullying. Camera's were hidden in Rosa's hotel room and pictures of her undressing and getting in the tub are leaked. I liked how Rosa ends up dealing with the aftermath of this and the good she creates from the horrible situation.
If you are a fan of the Sullivan series, then you should definitely read this one.
I received an ARC (advanced readers copy) of this book in exchange for my honest review.
Chrissy3562 - Love the newest Sullivan!!!!
I absolutely loved Drake Sullivan! He is the dream guy, there to rescue a damsel in destress, yet knows when to let her stand on her own two feet. Drake and Rosamad incredible couple despite the deamons that haunted both of them. Rosa was a reality star and she was betrayed by a crew member, which is what caused her to start driving and how she ended up meeting Drake. This story had so much growth for both characters and I loved meeting Drake's siblings and seeing a special San Francisco Sullivan pop up again. This book just reinforced why I love Bella Andre's books and will forever be a fan of this series. It gets 5 heart felt stars from me and I can't wait for the rest of these siblings to get their own HEAs.
Jeann55 - Love the Sullivans
Another winner for Bella Andre. Love this story and New York Sullivan men don't disappoint. He is an alpha male who will show his woman how he love she once he falls in love. Bella Andre definitely knows how to write witty, strong, likable characters both female and male.
Bev v - Amazing
Drake Sullivan is a successful artist that is trying to rekindle his desire to paint. On a stormy day, he sees a beautiful woman sitting on the cliffs crying by his house. He is compelled to paint her, but he has a rule to never ever paint people.
Rose the beautiful woman by the cliffs is a reality star that is trying to find herself.
Can rose trust drake?

This book was romantic demanding and very sexy!!!!! I read the book twice!! I can't wait for the 2nd one !!!!
KristyOwens10 - Another great Bella Andre book!
Bella Andre does not disappoint again! I love all of her books, and the latest Sullivan book was another to add to my "loved books" list. Through her writing, Bella made me think about how we, as a society, judge reality TV stars like we "know" them. This book combines great romance with an unforgettable story line. I can't wait to read about the next Sullivan!
Thysbee - Another Sullivan family to love!
Bella Andre has reached out once again with her words and her ability to draw pictures of a family that can make you ache to belong! Drake is an artist who needs inspiration! Rosa is in a lot of pain. A great weave of plot and beauty! Thank you for this, oh and since William is single, could you write me into a book so I can have a wonderful romance?
Liz D_NAD - A great start to the New York Sullivans!
Drake is a painter that's struggling to paint. Rosa is running from her life in the spotlight. When Drake sees her in the cliffs surrounding his property, he can help to feel the pull towards. I loved how Drake was so supportive and protective of Rosa throughout the book. I also enjoyed getting to know a bit about the NY Sullivans and seeing even if it was for a little bit Smith, one of my favorite Sullivans. I can't wait to read about Suzanne next, Bella always does an amazing job in all her books.
I received an ARC copy for an honest review.
SeeshelK - Beautiful
Drake wakes up to find Rosa standing on the cliff crying. He wonders is she out to cause herself harm or just broken-hearted. Rosa was destroyed and betrayed from her production crew posting nude photos of her. She run into hiding and right into Drakes arms.Drake needs a reason to paint again and he find it in Rosa .He wants to protect and love her. The strong characters Bella brings to this story just like all the others is fantastic. I love the family helping all the siblings and cousin helping too. So many times in this book you could relate to how today's girls are being bullied and exploited on the Internet . Drake is very loving and falls hard for Rosa and will do anything to protect her. Absolutely perfect book
JoyceT50 - Love The Sullivan's
Drake Sullivan is just as great as his cousins The New York Sullivan did not let us down. Kudos to Bella Andre. The book was fantastic. Drake and Rosa’s story was beautiful. Bring on more Sullivan’s.
Jen G F - Now that I've found you
ARC copy for honest review without compensation.
Wow, another Sullivan story about lost souls with the hopes of finding true love. This is the first New York Sullivan book and doesn’t disappoint. If you haven’t read any of the Sullivan books by Bella Andre you can start here but go back and read the rest of this series! ! ! Each Sullivan family shows you what finding true love means.
Drake and Rosa find each other in the Hampton’s where Drake is trying to paint but needs to find his muse again. Rosa, after fleeing Florida and her reality TV series after a terrible scandal ends up on Drake’s private property and he sees her on the cliffs.
This story tells you how they overcome their problems separately and together to find their inner strengths with lots of upheaval, emotional drama, passion and finally, what the power of love can do!
D Soares - Now that I found you
Absolutely amazing. I'm in love with Drake and Rosa. Through every turn each of them discovered just how strong they were. Amazing writing.
Srosenthal - A great start to the ny Sullivan's
This is a new series of books featuring the NY Sullivan's and it veins in Maintauk. Drake Sullivan is the son of William, a world famous painter whose wife committed suicide. His son, Drake is the hero in this book and one day he notices Rosa overlooking his bluffs by his home. Drake is a painter who has artists block and from the second he sees her he wants to paint her.
Rosa is a reality TV star whose just been violated with nude pictures of her and she ran away from Florida to escape everyone. That is why she is on the bluffs and she meets Drake.
There is not a whole lot of drama to this story. Lots of sex and insta love on Drakes side. The issue of video platoon of privacy is a big topic in this book and gave it more depth. It's not my favorite Sullivan book but it's definitely a fun and light read. I especially enjoyed meeting this side of the Sullivan family.
Granny Loves to Read - Rhonda
Loved this book! Loved the characters and the flow of he story! Given copy for honest review!
Mom2Mackids - Gotta love the Sullivan's
When a Sullivan falls, they fall hard and fast. Scandal has Rosa running from her life as a reality TV star, right into Drake's back yard. Drake has secluded himself with his dog Oscar at his Montauk cabin in hopes of finding his muse, and passion for painting again. From the moment he saw her, he became obsessed with painting her. The first time she sees him, she runs away. She doesn't get far though, the instant connection between Rosa and Drake was so strong neither could resist, even if they had wanted to, that is. There is so much passion, love amongst the Sullivan siblings/cousins and reconnecting with estranged family members. Bella keeps you wondering if Rosa will wise up and see what is in front of her, or if she will throw it all away because of doubt and fear.
Bbutterfly31499 - I absolutely loved this book! I couldn't put it down!
I absolutely love the book. Drake and Rosa are perfect together! The New York Sullivan's have arrived and Bella Andre definitely delivered. A great compliment to the Sullivan legacy
MelanyAnn13 - Another great book!
I rejoiced the minute I heard that Bella Andre was releasing another book in her Sullivan series. Rosa and Drake's story captivates you the minute you start reading. I love books that show the harsh realities of being in the limelight. I highly recommend this book.
Evergreenbrdx - Another Fabulous Sullivan Story!
Rosa and her family are on a reality TV series. Sadly a cameraman hid a camera in her room and sold pictures of her to the highest bidder. Rosa was devastated and had to get away.
Drake is a painter who is having a dry spell and is looking for inspiration. He finds this when he finds Rosa on his cliffs.
Rosa needs to learn to trust and Drake is just the man to do just that.
Drake's father has always kept his children at arms length since their mother left him. This family needs healing and slow that process is happening.
Another great Sullivan story! So can't wait for more!!
AshleyWhitman86 - Another great Sullivan story
Awesome read! It's about love, trust, forgiveness, and strength. It also shows that at the end of every situation there is always a light at the end of the tunnel. I love how the family sticks together and helps out no matter what the situation is. If you haven't read any of the Sullivan stories this one will definitely make you want to read the rest!
wandagayle - Sullivan's are awesome!
Drake's story did not disappoint! All of the Sullivan's stories were fabulous and made you feel as if you knew them personally and Drake and his siblings fit right in there. Couldn't put it down when started reading it - loved it!
Michealep - Fabulous read
Once again, Bella and her Sullivans do not disappoint. This story is written with real, deep emotion, and just enough heat to keep you very interested. The struggles that Rosa faces with self blame due to past bad choices and how others help her to see that you don't have to be defined by your past, and can use the future and the help of others to overcome adversity. I love how Bella's stories always revolve around a strong closely knit family unit that is always there for you without question. Even if you haven't read a Sullivan story, this one easily stands on its own...buy the book...you won't be sorry!

JeSsP771 - Now that I’ve found you
I really enjoyed this pretty much the whole way through, literally until the last few pages. I loved the story between Drake and Rosa, loved how there was no huge upset or horrible twists. He was 100% in love with her and she then caught up with him and they weren’t afraid to tell each other and show each other. It was great. Then.. the ending just didn’t go far enough for me or leave me with a smile on my face . I usually love with these books that the characters have beautiful endings with engagements or something but this one felt totally lacklustre. Then.. the epilogue was not even about them but was about the next character - I just cannot stand when books do that. So literally in the last few pages this book lost 2 stars for me. Otherwise it was a nice book the rest of the way through.
N1ck1h - Now I found another great book!
Never disappointed with a book from Bella.
Loved Drake and Rosa and together.
A great read.
Lee, Australia - OMG I LOVE THIS
Bella Andre at her best. Could not put this book down. Thanks Bella
Katskidsbitz - Another great Sullivan's read
In "Now That I've Found You" we are introduced to the New York Sullivans a new set of siblings cousins to the original San Francisco Sullivans. In this book we are introduced to Drake, a renowned artist who has isolated himself at his cabin in Montauk, in order to find his muse.
Drake expects to discover his muse from the environment, but he finds it in Rosa. Drake is what we have come to expect from a Sullivan, an alpha who is slightly bossy, but also handsome, caring, talented, loving. He also falls in love at first sight, much like his cousins. Drake has never painted people, particularly a woman before, but taken by Rosa's beauty and heart he feels inspired for the first time in two months and feels a compulsion to paint her.
Rosa Bouchard is a reality tv star, who has been embroiled in a scandal and fears she is unworthy of everyone around her including her family and anyone else she cares for. Rosa's character wallows in self pity before realizing her inner strength and that she can follow her dreams, rather than what is financially viable for her family. Whilst I instantly loved Drake's character, Rosa's character took me a little longer to warm up to.
In this book we are introduced to Drake's siblings. The supporting characters are interesting and a couple, I hope we get to read their stories later. I am really looking forward to reading Drake's siblings, Suzanne, Harry and Alec's stories.
This book is a sweet love story with a great mix of sensuality, romance and heat. This is what I have come to expect when reading a Bella Andre book. This book can definitely be read as a stand alone. I have read a few of the early Sullivan books, and hope to read them all eventually. I love reading about the family and how their stories continue and are incorporated into the following books.
Debz3038 - Now that I have found you
When you least expect it, it hit you out of the blue. A runaway reality star meets a reclusive painter and sparks fly. A great book about facing adversities while being a part of the famed Sullivan family, with a insight on the blight of today's technology. A must read by this famed author.
AVWEK - A compelling love story
This has to be one of the most romantic stories I have read. I did not want it to finish. From first meeting Drake just loved her and that set the tone for the whole story.
I will be reading a lot more by this author.
lizcas57 - Another great read from Bella
Once again Bella has produced a book that I didn't want to put down. The much anticipated first story of her New York Sullivan's is about Drake, a swoon worthy artist and Rosa, a Reality star who he rescues in her hour of need. As always with Bella's stories the story is well written and flows nicely with a good spark between Drake and Rosa. Good storytelling of the problems they face and how they come together for the inevitable HEA as well as bringing in some of the characters from previous Sullivan books makes you feel like you really know this family. Bella's books always leave me with a feel good factor and this one was no different. I am really looking forward to the next in the series.
I received an ARC for an honest review.
ZettiNova - Pure Bella Andre Genius
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 she’s hurt emotionally. She’s 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 he has never met before is okay and well.
Rosa has insecurities and has been badly hurt by her mother although her mother thinks what she is doing is perfectly acceptable. Rosa is cynical throughout this book and believes that her attempts to hide out will be revealed by the people in the small town that she has ended up in. My heart goes out to her because she’s in this headspace where she feels like Drake is against her but actually Drake’s artistic inspiration has awoken since he saw her on the cliffs.
Drake uses the inspiration to paint, and to discover himself again. Rosa helps him but Drake also helps her to realise that she is worth more than she thinks. She has so much beauty inside and out but she doesn’t see herself in the way that Drake does and when she realises that Drake does see herself that way, she almost in a way starts to panic because she is now exposed and open. I love that she and Drake met and was the beacon of light for each other. It is so apt and its pure Bella Andre genius.
Every time I read a Bella Andre novel, I smile because there is this infinite feel of family and community. It has so many feels and you just wish that the Sullivan’s were a real and true family. I have loved every single Sullivan book to date. Drake’s book is no different. I could read any of her books for hours and hours on end and not get bored. She has this amazing way of evoking all the motion from you and you can’t help but fall in love with each and every single word of hers.
If you’re a newbie to Bella Andre, you can read this one as each book is a standalone but if you want to fall in love with the Sullivan’s, start from the beginning with The Look Of Love. I love each and every one for different reasons!
I totally recommend this!

sferguson105 - Another fantastic addition to the Sullivan series!!
In this book, Bella helps us dive in to the lives of the NY Sullivan's, and she doesn't disappoint!! Rosa is faced with an issue that has unfortunately become all to common for women and girls. She comes off as weak at first, but then you see her true spirit emerge, with the help of a certain sexy artist. I love how they help each other find what they need, and it's not just one person giving everything. This book gives you quite a bit of backstory on the NY Sullivan's, and my heart couldn't help but break for them. I was drawn in from the first page, and couldn't put this book down. Full of love, healing, and steamy scenes, this book is definitely a must read!!
2BeagleDogs - Welcome to the New York Sullivan's!
I have read all the Sullivan books, and this was another enjoyable read in the series. It was a great introduction to the New York Sullivan's and the dynamics and history of their family. I enjoyed the chemistry between Drake and Rosa. I must admit that at times I might have appreciated a little more action and a little less of being in Rosa's head with her repetitive thoughts about her situation. I am looking forward to the next one with Suzanne's story!
Helene Taibleson - Timing is Everything
Even at the lowest period of your life, there is always that ray of sunshine. For Rosa it was Drake and vice versa.
While Rosa dealt with cyber bullying, Drake dealt with his father's rejection. Finding each other when they did helped heal old wounds and forged a new beginning.
Bella once again weaves a tale of love set against the backdrop of current events. I'm never disappointed by an Bella Andre book.
Gdesd - The Sullivan's are back!!
Amazing story of love, trust, courage, strength and forgiveness. Bella wrote the settings in the story so well that I felt like I was there. So peaceful and serene. Of the many Sullivan books, this is one of my favorites. Read it, live it, love it. You won't be disappointed!!
wickster72 - A nice read
I received this ARC for an unbiased review. I have read every book Bella Andre has written. Even though this was not my favorite, I still enjoyed it. It is a story about hidden strength and forgiveness. It is about family, and how you can depend on each other. About two lost souls finding and healing each other.

Given book by author for my honest opinion
Blender2007 - Another Amazing Sullivan!
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 issues. This book deals with some important social issues such as cyber bullying and portrays a good representation on how to overcome. I am disappointed the epilogue didn't include more of our couple's HEA and Drakes' Art Show but it did line up my curiosity for our next book... Can't wait for more...more...more Sullivan's!

Maw1124 - Where's the description!
At this point, can't you provide a description of what this story is about? I would never pre- order a book without knowing what the story might be. How do you expect to hook people into sampling or buying this book? This author has been doing this with most of her recent releases, and that just seems lazy to me.
