Review of I Only Have Eyes For You by Bella Andre
6 out of 5 smirks
Synopsis: "Sophie Sullivan, a librarian in San Francisco, was five years old when she fell head over heels in love with Jake McCann. Twenty years later, she’s convinced the notorious bad boy still sees her as the “nice” Sullivan twin. That is, when he bothers to look at her at all. But when they both get caught up in the magic of the first Sullivan wedding, she knows it’s long past time to do whatever it takes to make him see her for who she truly is...the woman who will love him forever.
Jake has always been a magnet for women, especially since his Irish pubs made him extremely wealthy. But the only woman he really wants is the one he can never have. Not only is Sophie his best friend’s off-limits younger sister...he can’t risk letting her get close enough to discover his deeply hidden secret.
Only, when Sophie appears on his doorstep as Jake’s every fantasy come to life—smart, beautiful, and shockingly sexy—he doesn’t have a prayer of taking his eyes, or his hands, off her. And he can’t stop craving more of her sweet smiles and sinful kisses. Because even though Jake knows loving Sophie isn’t the right thing to do...how can he possibly resist?"
I Only Have Eyes For You by Bella Andre is a story about love that only builds overtime. What really caught me up in this story, even though I haven't read any of the other Sullivan stories, is how Bella Andre makes her characters so real that their emotions became my emotions. It is easy to relate to the characters and to feel what they feel because the characters resemble every day people. I really love how close the Sullivan family is with one another and how the big brothers are really big brothers in every sense of the term. They rally for one another and make sure each other's lives turn out the way they want them to. Sophie is a character who instantly lights up a room with her purity and strength. As an opposite Jake is a bad boy image with a pure heart, which would make anyone stop and look his way. Sophie and Jake's story is one that is full of surprises, twists and turns, but ultimately it's the characters themselves readers will invest in. I only discovered Bella Andre after she followed me on twitter and all I can say is thank goodness she did because I have been missing out. I'm a believer and a follower of this talented author and cannot wait to read not only the upcoming Sullivan stories, but the ones I have missed as well. I give I Only Have Eyes For You by Bella Andre 6 smirks because it's that good.
