To that end, his brother Rafe and his Fiancé' (book 10) are getting married and asked Adam to meet with THEIR wedding planner, Kerry Dromoland because they can't make it- really!!! Even Adam knew what they were up too. But, when he does go to the appointment, he cannot take his eyes off of her and the sizzling electricity that bounces back and forth between them has both of them reeling - and me too, WOW.
Adam knows that he wants her, but, not Forever. He tells Kerry that he is not the marrying, settling down kind, but he wants her. She says NO which takes Adam aback because no women ever tells him NO.
As one of the top wedding planners in Seattle, Kerry has been waiting her whole life to find her own true love. So even though Adam makes her heart race and her body heat up every time they’re together, she knows better than to think he could be “the one.” Still, knowing he’s Seattle’s biggest player doesn’t make it any easier to resist his breathtaking kisses and wicked caresses…or the fact that he makes her smile more than any man ever has.
Kerry finally gives into the hot sizzling passion between her and Adam and agrees to an affair if they keep it to no strings attached, and only meet at a Hotel and never at each other house where emotions can cross lines quickly. As time goes on, Adam begins to feel something for Kerry that he never felt for another woman. He was beginning to think he wanted a HEA with Kerry, how crazy is that?
She has hang ups about people abandoning her because her father left her mother, Kerry and her sister and never showed up again. She is terrified of displeasing her sister or her mother because she does not want them to abandon her too. So, she listens to her mother that warns her and her sister over and over to not choose poorly and especially a Player like Kerry's father.
When Adam finally realizes he loves her, with the help of his father, he sets out to tell her. Before he can declare his love, and hope she loves him back, she realizes that she is beginning to have feelings for Adam and is about to get her heart broken because she has allowed the lines to fade and the walls of her heart to start crumbling. So, she tells Adam that their affair cannot go on any longer.
Issues: I love Ms. Andre's books and have read all her series and many of her standalones. I was frustrated on several occasions when Kerry went on and on and on with her inner dialog about why this relationship will never work. I realize that the inward battle in Romance novels is part of the adventure, however, after 20+ pages throughout the book, of this same dialog, I got tired and wanted to throw my Kindle out the window (not really –but you get my point), and curse at Kerry and tell her to go home and become an Old Maid, because she did not deserve anyone!
Well, Ms. Andre made up for those frustating pages when Kerry finally accepted that she truly loved Adam and that he loved her “forever” too. This truly did make up for Kerry’s monotonous dialog!!!! In fact, I had tears in my eyes the way Kerry made her decoration of her love for Adam. This book would have been a 5, except for that annoying dialog.
This is book 14 of the Sullivan series and now we know that there is New York and Maine Sullivan’s yet to come – yea, yea, Happy Days Are Here Again.
The story of Adam and Kerry is beautifully written. Nothing makes me happier than seeing a bad boy brought to his knees. And see that bad boy get rejected because the heroine is scared is always priceless to watch the chase.
Absolute must read.
All of the familiar romance tropes are here: fabulously wealthy, talented, handsome man meets gorgeous, spunky, independent woman. He's a love/romance non-believer; she's a wedding planner with more than a few relationship hang-ups. He's 'love'em and leave'em;' she's looking for solid, dependable 'try love.' First meeting, sparks fly, hookups happen, and the rest, as they say is history. Both characters are reasonably likable, the plot is predictable, but overall it's a pleasant read.
Bottom line: pretty average.
I’m totally head over heels with Bella Andre’s Sullivan’s series. They keep just getting better and better. When reading her work you expect and get sheer perfection. Each read reiterates the total devotion the Sullivan’s have toward each other as a family. Amazing just amazing. From the first page to the first words you are swept away into the Sullivan’s most intimate lives. From their sheer joy to their heart break to their second chances.
Renowned Seattle Architect Adam Sullivan is the last of his brothers and sister to still be single. He has absolutely no interest in having cupid’s arrow puncture him. He is not interested in love or marriage and enjoys his life as Seattle’s biggest player.
Kerry Dromoland (I totally chuckled with her last name) most sought after Wedding Planner is a very intelligent, successful woman. A degree in business she’s taken over her mother’s business (actually bought it) and kept it thriving. She is expert at planning everyone’s HEA’s and she continues to believe she will one day find her “the one.” Brought up by her single Mom Kerry and her sister were groomed basically to not trust men and to especially not make the same mistake her mother did. When Kerry was very young her father simply up and left out of their lives, no explanation nothing and never looked back. So you basically get the gist of why she is so reluctant to give her heart away to anyone.
Kerry was commissioned to do Brooke and Rafe’s wedding and became very close with the couple. Who wouldn’t get close to any of the Sullivan’s. Their just so damn loveable. Three weeks out from their wedding there was a meeting scheduled so they could go over last minute details and some changes Kerry wanted to suggest. But due to Brooke’s and Rafe’s schedule they couldn’t make the meeting and they didn’t want to blow her off again so in their place they sent Rafe’s Brother Adam.
Adam didn’t understand why they asked him, when his Mom or Mia would be more than happy to step in. Now mind you he absolutely didn’t mind helping his BFF Brooke and his brother Rafe with their special day.
As so the most amazing romance will unfold. The minute Adam set eyes on Kerry he was so taken by her beauty, intelligence and professionalism he couldn’t take his eyes off her. The feeling was mutual with Kerry trust me. When the wedding details and changes were finishing up Adam didn’t want it to end and he asked Kerry out. HA as much as Kerry wanted to say yes she said NO. Okay so that was a total shock to Adam. He was not accustomed to be told NO. In fact he always got his way. So now he set out to win her over. Sending her flowers and chocolates and an edible sculpture of the Dromoland all under the pretense of trying to help a family member with their budding business or a friend.
When Kerry finally agreed to meet and go out with Adam there were some ground rules laid down thus “Their Arrangement.” Deal was once a week just for HOT SEX and in a neutral location and no family was to know. Yeah this worked out real well. Their first meeting was amazing wow. The chemistry was so HOT and so THERE you melted from their heat.
But when things started to get a little hmmmm what am I looking for, too comfortable and intimate between the two of them Kerry shut it down and totally shattered both their worlds. Listening to much to her inner voice and listening to her mother Kerry was not going to give her heart to a player and have the same thing happen to her as her mother and her sister. If you know anything about the Sullivan’s THEY WILL NOT GIVE UP and they go after what they want. This is all I can give you without spoiling this beautiful story. There are several parts of the story that will have you in tears especially towards the end at the family dinner for Rafe and Brooke the night before the wedding. My breath literally hitched and just had to put the kindle down. God I loved this read and wish I could give it a gazillion stars it was that good. I so can’t wait for the next set of Sullivan’s to be written about. So New York here we come and Drake’s up at bat. LOL. Don’t forget her new series coming out The Maverick Billionaires first book “Breathless in Love” releasing Jun 10, 2015 and her Love on Rockwell Island Cape Cod Kisses Book #1 releasing May 6, 2015. Happy reading.
