Whirlwind Tour & Review: From This Moment On by Bella Andre (with great giveaways to enter)

From This Moment On by Bella Andre
Bella Andre
August 2011
Format: e-book, 176 pages

First line: Marcus Sullivan was a man on a mission. 

Book description: 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 is the second of Bella Andre's Sullivan series and it was just as good as the first one. If you enjoy contemporary romance, love getting caught up in family dynamics and favor series, this is one to check out!

Picking up where The Look of Love ended, we find that Marcus has just left his brother's engagement party and headed to a bar, hoping to find someone to take his mind off his troubles. Having recently found out that his girlfriend isn't who he thought she was, he's in a reckless state of mind. Nicola, also in a reckless mind -frame, heads to the same bar. She's tired of the media's false portrayal of her and decides she might as well live up to their image.  As soon as their eyes meet, it's as if no one else is around. Making a deal to have just one night together and then go their separate ways, they leave the bar.

Luckily for both of them, things did not go according to plan - not that they would have called it luck at first. From the moment they get in the car, things go awry. Wanting to make sure Marcus isn't a serial killer, Nicola ends up calling the last person listed on his phone - none other than his mother! From there, you just get this feeling that these two are going to get more than they were looking for.

There are so many sweet, touching moments throughout the story, and watching as Marcus and Nicola find their way into each others life is filled with the usual bumps along the way that we find in a typical couple's journey to their happily-ever-after. In this case, Marcus goes all out, with the help of his sister, Lori, who just happens to be Nicola's choreographer. I won't spoil the surprise of what he does, but let me tell you, anyone who would go to all that trouble must really be in love!

With each book so far, we have gotten to meet more of the Sullivan family and I am so excited to read each of their stories. Coming from a large family myself, I can relate to the relationships that the siblings have towards each other. Being the oldest, I find that I can also relate to Marcus's sense of protectiveness over each of the younger siblings. 

Next up is brother Gabe's story, the hero fire fighter.
