Each book is based on one of the San Francisco Sullivan's romance. Each book could stand alone, but it would be remiss, not to read them all as they tie together beautifully. In book 7 gorgeous hunky actor Smith is putting his reputation on the line to direct, star and produce a movie. His co-star is young and beautiful and comes with her own protection all wrapped up in her all business sister. Valentina knows all about the Hollywood short lived affairs between actors and actresses that work together that always end in disaster for them both. She is bound and determined her innocent sister is not going to be lulled into an affair with her older counterpart Smith. What Valentina never sees coming is her attraction and respect she has for Smith. Smith, while acknowledging his co-star is beautiful and knows her stuff is not in the least attracted to her. No, it's the headstrong Valentina that sets his nerves racing when ever she is on the set. And she's always on the set, and Smith is banking everything on the success of this movie and can't be distracted, much to his chagrin.
The Alpha Sullivan Males: Chase, the world class photographer; Marcus the oldest, a Nappa Valley Vintner; Gabe, the San Francisco fire fighter; Zach the auto racing/mechanic mogul; Ryan the professional baseball star; Smith, the gorgeous movie star. The Sullivan women: Sophie the San Francisco librarian; Lori, the world class dancer/choreographer; Mary their mother and the former model; Jack the Patriarch and advertising executive.
I read all nine of the San Francisco Sullivan books in order, but somehow I felt that Mary's story was the most poignant I guess because the reader knows from the first of the series that Jacks life is cut short. Of the siblings Lori's story is the most fun. There is something intriguing about it taking place in the rural one horse, but lovely town, of Pescadero, CA, just over the mountains from the millions of people in Silicon Valley that appeals to my need to escape to the serenity it evokes. Chase's story on the other hand just maybe the sexiest in the series.
The Sullivan's are back and now its Smith's turn to fall in love. Smith, the second oldest son in the family, has everything; fame, money, and the ability to have a new sexy woman in his bed every night. He hadn't considered it a possibility that he could fall in love and be loved by a woman for himself, and not his fame or money. It hadn't bothered him much until the past year as one by one, his siblings feel in love.
Enter Valentina Landon, the serious, focused and protective older sister and business manager of Tatiana Landon, an up and coming actress. Tatiana has landed the lead female role in a film that could catapult her into fame; a film in which Smith is the male lead and on screen love interest to Tatiana's character.
Smith has been intrigued and attracted to Valentina since the first time they met during negotiations to sign Tatiana for the film. Smith has a lot riding on this film; personally, professionally, and financially. The timing could not be worse to start relationship of any kind.
Valentina has vowed to never get involved with an actor, let alone fall in love with one. She has seen too many women have their hearts broken when the relationship ends, as they always do in Hollywood.
Personally I have been waiting for Smith's book. Of course I say that whenever a new Sullivan book is released. I love this series! I loved this book!!! Smith and Valentina's love story is beautiful, romantic, and hot! To see Smith give in to his feelings and then work to convince Valentina to trust and believe in him so that she can do the same, made for a great love story. There were also some touching scenes between Smith and Mary, the Sullivan family matriarch.
On a scale of 1-5, where 1 is don't waste your time and 5 is read it now-you will love it, this book is, without a doubt, a 5. Bella Andre has created a wonderful series that has all the things I look for in a good books; hot, sexy, confident men who, when they finally find the one and fall in love, they are 100% committed to their woman; characters with depth that the reader cares about; romance; and hot sweaty sex!
I can't wait for Lori's book, which is supposed to come out in early 2013. We are also briefly introduced to the Sullivan cousins from Seattle, who I am hopeful will be given their own stories.
