Book Review: From This Moment On by Bella Andre

From This Moment On
Author: Bella Andre
Publication: Bella Andre (August 30, 2011)

Description: Watch another Sullivan fall in love in the second book of Bella Andre's new contemporary romance series! With FROM THIS MOMENT ON, bestselling author Bella Andre introduces you to Marcus, the second Sullivan bad boy, whose life will never be the same from the moment he meets Nicola…

For thirty-six years, Marcus Sullivan has been the responsible older brother, stepping in to take care of his seven siblings after their father died when they were children. But when the perfectly ordered future he's planned for himself turns out to be nothing but a lie, Marcus needs one reckless night to shake free from it all.

Nicola Harding is known throughout the world by only one name - Nico - for her catchy, sensual pop songs. Only, what no one knows about the twenty-five year old singer is that her sex-kitten image is totally false. After a terrible betrayal by a man who loved fame far more than he ever loved her, she vows not to let anyone else get close enough to find out who she really is...or hurt her again. Especially not the gorgeous stranger she meets at a nightclub, even though the hunger - and the sinful promises - in his dark eyes make her want to spill all her secrets.

One night is all Nicola and Marcus agree to share with each other. But nothing goes as they plan when instead of simply tangling limbs, they find a deeper connection than either of them could have anticipated. And even though they both try to fight it, growing emotions - and sizzling attraction - keep drawing them closer together.

Close enough for them to wonder if stealing one more secret moment together can ever be enough?

My Thoughts: This romance paired two rather unlikely people together in a hot romance filled with emotion. Marcus Sullivan was just looking for hot sex after his girlfriend betrayed him with another man. He wasn't looking to risk his heart again. Nicola Harding was also looking for hot sex. After all, she had the name and thought it was time to have the game too. But things don't go according to plan for either of them when they meet in a crowded nightclub.

Marcus finds it hard to seduce the woman who falls asleep in his arms so trustingly. Nicola wakes up embarrassed and second guessing her impulsive decision. They share one hot kiss and go their separate ways with no plans to ever see each other again. But fate has other plans...

When Marcus goes to visit his sister who is choreographing a video for a hot pop star, he is surprised to find the Nicola is the star. They decide to try again for one hot night together. But that isn't enough for either of them...

Their relationship isn't destined to run smoothly. First, there's the age difference. He's 36; she's 25. Then there's the lifestyle difference. He's a successful wine maker in the Napa Valley; she's the pop star who is seldom home because she does shows all over the world. And then, there is the fame thing. Nicola knows that anyone she dates will immediately become a press target and lose all their privacy; Marcus has never wanted fame. He's leaving that to his brothers—Smith who is a movie star and Ryan who plays pro baseball. Finally, there is the fear they have in common—that risking their hearts could get them broken.

Watching Marcus and Nicola work out their differences (and enjoy some really hot sex) made this a great story. I can't wait to read more stories about the other Sullivans finding their own true loves.

Favorite Quote:
The night wasn't going at all the way she thought it would. Well, the meeting a ridiculously gorgeous guy in a club part was right on track, but calling his mom to be reassured that she wasn't going to end the night in a body bag...that just didn't happen in her world. In anyone's world, actually.
