"Not since Nora Roberts has anyone been able to write a big family romance series with every book as good as the last. Bella Andre never disappoints." ~ Laura, The Revolving Bookcase Reviews
In ALWAYS ON MY MIND, after a tragic loss three years ago, Grayson Tyler left his life in New York City behind and started over in the rolling hills of the California coast. He's convinced himself that all he'll ever need again is the blue sky, a thousand acres of pasture, and the crashing waves of the ocean. Until one day, Lori Sullivan barges into his life and promptly blows his emotionless and solitary world to shreds, driving him crazy as only a woman nicknamed "Naughty" can. But will Lori be able to convince him that it's safe to love her...and that forever isn't actually out of reach? (love story, contemporary romance, alpha heroes, beach reads, falling in love)
Author's Note: While ALWAYS ON MY MIND can easily be read as a stand-alone story, you'll likely enjoy reading the earlier books in Bella Andre's New York Times and USA Today #1 bestselling series, too.

This book is 600 pages on my electronic device, and when I first saw that I was thinking it would last me a while to read. This made me happy, because I couldn't wait for this book to come out! However, I was so wrong about how long it took me to read! I am a college student who is busy with midterms right now. This fabulous book only took me two days to read! Had I not had the tests to study for, it would have been less time! I fell in love with Grayson from the start! Lori has always been my favorite Sullivan from previous books, and now not only is she my favorite, but her story is my favorite as well! You can not put this book down!!! The minute you start it you wion't want to stop, and time will fly by as you fall in love with Grayson and Lori. It will make you want to find your own cowboy to fall in love with! This book is now not only one of my favorite Bella Andre books, but one of my all time favorite reads ever!!! You will be missing out if you do not read this one!!!
I have read every book Bella has written. This one was as brilliant as all the others! I'm thrilled she is going to do Mary and Jack Sullivan's love story as well as continue with the cousins. All of her stories are believable and make you feel the love this family holds for each other. It makes you wish all families could be like them.
I love all the Sullivan's but admit this one was the most anticipated story, Naughty has been so hungry for love that she made some bad choices and sacrificed herself somewhere along the way. Grayson is such a loving person who struggles with his own self worth after failing to detect his wife's alcoholism and therefore he couldn't prevent her death. Both characters had to learn to forgive themselves before they could open up to a love that is true and would last forever. So gratifying to see this final San Francisco Sullivan find her HEA. I can't wait to read about Rafe and then Mary! This is the kind of story that makes you want to go home and kiss your husband, hug your kids and call your mom. Sigh...
What a beautiful story of finding true love. I have read all the Sullivans Series and this has got to be my favorite. This is a couple who shouldn't work, but they do. Two lives so different, but both needing love. Watching this couple decide to let go and just love was so beautiful. I recommend this and all the books..I do recommend you start with the first book "The Look of Love. You will love them
The long-awaited story of Lori Sullivan, talented dancer of the Sullivans, is here! This marks the last of this branch of the Sullivans and tells a tale of forgiveness and learning again to trust in love.
Lori Sullivan, nicknamed "Naughty," really isn't all that naughty. She's easy to trust and easy to give out love, which gives this tender-hearted beauty such an innocent, endearing nature underneath the tough act she puts up. After a devastating emotional betrayal, she abandons her show in Chicago and flees to a random location, and decides to try being a farmhand for a while, at the farm of our hero, Grayson Tyler. Grayson feels responsible for a tragedy that occurred three years ago, and has since then attempted to shut everyone out of his life; his seemingly impenetrable barrier now being tested with the arrival of a passionate and determined Lori Sullivan. Of course, we know from the first moment that Grayson doesn't stand a chance against Lori's easy charms, incredible beauty, and vivacity for life and people. As she becomes more determined to create a warm hearth in the coldness of his heart, Grayson learns to forgive himself and completes the missing piece in Lori's puzzle - by showing her the meaning of true love.
Aside from the palpable sexual tension in Bella Andre's works, there is a great amount of depth to her characters. Neither character is close to being perfect, but that only serves to complement the perfection in their being together. Lori lives the glamorous life of a dancer, but having grown up with 7 siblings she knows about real work and is not afraid to go the extra mile to achieve something of value. Underneath her determination and hard work is a heart of gold, one who grieves over a dying cat and makes friends with farm animals. At the same time, there is a hidden vulnerability to her that Grayson notices, which makes him all the more endearing. For all that the Sullivans are amazing, Lori brandishes her moniker and tough facade like a shield; for fear of going unnoticed she hides a part of her true self from public view. Grayson, naturally, is our resident tortured hero. For most of the novel he contends with past ghosts, yet as he slowly succumbs under Lori's spell, he polishes the diamond within her which in turn helps to erase the guilt in his own heart.
This is a sweet tale of two touching and realistic characters, both full of injuries that are slowly healed by each other. Personally I feel like this story could do with a little less sex, but with all the underlying emotional content it isn't a great complaint. Always On My Mind comes off with resounding sweetness and love, a trademark of Bella Andre's writing. The ending is especially worthy of a Disney film, as we wave good-bye to the happy couples of the 8 Sullivan siblings and move towards the Seattle Sullivans starting with cousin Rafe, whose story I can't wait to read.Read more ›
We have met Naughty in the previous Sullivan stories, and as her nickname suggests she is quite a character. It is for that reason, that I expected more from her than I actually got. There were some funny bits, some hot bits, some touching bits and some sweet bits, but I didn't feel we got to know Lori. Her character was definitely a let down for me. She put up with a not-so-nice Grayson for almost 50% of the book and that seemed very out-of-character for the girl we had seen glimpses of earlier, which suggested she would have just given the man a piece of her mind and driven away for treating her so negatively.
The whole idea of Lori applying for the job as farm hand was OTT for me. Had it been a housekeeper he was after I could understand his outlandish interview technique, but asking a farm hand to prove they're capable of the job by cleaning the loo was just too far fetched. Grayson clearly had a lot of guilt issues surrounding the death of his wife, and his self-inflicted punishment of isolation is understandable, but did he really have to be so annoying?
`Always on My Mind' is a good read, and Bella Andre is an exceptional contemporary romance writer. I just feel, that for me, this particular story was let down on character development, plot and believability.
