Marcus Sullivan has always been the responsible older brother, stepping in to take care of his seven siblings when their father died. But when the perfectly ordered future he's planned turns out to be a lie, Marcus needs one reckless night to shake free from it all.

Known throughout the world by only one name—Nico—pop songstress Nicola Harding is seen as the ultimate sex kitten. But it's all a lie. After a terrible betrayal she refuses to let anyone else close enough to find out who she really is…or to hurt her again. Especially the gorgeous stranger at the bar.

One night is all Nicola and Marcus agree to share with each other. But instead, a deeper connection than either of them could have anticipated begins….

My Thoughts:

This is the second in the Sullivan series that has been re-released in print. It has a awesome new cover and some extra scenes that weren't in the previous book.

Marcus has a full plate of responsibility with his family and work. He not only owns a very successful winery, he acts as a father figure for his seven brothers and sisters since his father passed years ago. He's a bit uptight when he is around his girlfriend who he thinks is "the one" until his eyes are opened to the real person she is. Wanting to drown his sorrows in a woman, he goes to a club where he meets the most attractive woman he's ever seen. Even from across the crowded club, there is an instant attraction that is so intense. He knows he just has to have her. But the night doesn't turn out quite how he thought it would.

Nicola, or Nico as she is famously known, is a music star. She is in town to film her newest music video. Feeling lonely this evening, she decides to let loose at the night club across the street from her hotel. She is not sure if what she is doing when she makes her way over there but decides to ignore her inner ramblings and go in. Instantly she sees the most desirable man across the club. All her doubt fly out the window when she decides to take the jump. And take it she does.

So...Marcus is yummy and I will completely fight Nicola for him. Lol. I absolutely loved Marcus and Nicola. I wanted to stab Marcus' biatch of an ex-girlfriend in the eye. She was completely wrong for him, unlike Nicola. Nicola brings out the true Marcus. She helps him let go which ultimately relaxes him. And the chemistry between the two is scorching. There is so much passion between them I'm surprised my pages didn't catch on fire. ;)

Bella Andre knows how to write wonderful stories that keep you hooked until the very end and leave you yearning to get your hands on more. I know I can't wait to read the next in this series.

  1. She really can write an incredibly steamy scene and I am right there with you wanting to stab that ex girlfriend. I couldn't believe! I finished book 3 this week and loved it too. Such a good series :)
