"Kiss Me Like This is an absolute must read for 2014 and had me obsessed until the very last page. Bella Andre is at her best, you'll laugh, cry, sigh, and yes probably swoon." ~ #1 NYT Bestselling Author Rachel Van Dyken
Sweet, sensual, funny and heartbreakingly sad at times, Kiss Me Like This is impossible to put down. ~ Ella (Goodreads)
Bella has another hit on her hands. This really was a wonderful book. The emotion and the roller coaster ride she took us on was great. I actually cried at a few parts. Anyone who has read Bella's Sullivan series will love this as well. ~ Jody (Goodreads)
"KISS ME LIKE THIS is pure Bella Andre magic--sweet, sexy and enrapturing as her books always are--but this time around it's got a good, healthy slice of New Adult edge to it. Don't miss this one!" ~ Jasinda Wilder, NYT bestselling author
"Addictions come in all shapes and sizes, but nothing feels as indulgent and irresistible to me as a new Bella Andre book." ~ Natasha Is A Book Junkie Reviews
BOOK DESCRIPTION: From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, Bella Andre, comes a New Adult contemporary series about The Morrisons!
Sean Morrison, one of six siblings and the top college baseball player in the country, is reeling from a heartbreakingly painful loss. Nothing seems to matter anymore...until the night Serena Britten unexpectedly ends up in his arms.
Serena is a world-famous model who has only ever wanted to be normal, even though her mother has always pushed her to become a superstar. Though it isn't easy to try to leave everyone and everything she knows behind, Serena is determined to enroll in college. More than anything, she wants to turn her love for books into a new career that she actually loves. Only, she never expected to meet someone like Sean on campus--or to be instantly consumed by their incredible chemistry and connection.
But when the pressures of her high-profile modeling career only get bigger and more demanding, will it make living a normal life as a college student--and falling in love with the hottest guy on campus--impossible?
Note for Sullivan fans: Serena made an appearance in Just To Be With You (Ian's story) and Smith Sullivan from Come A Little Bit Closer makes an appearance in KISS ME LIKE THIS, too!
KISS ME LIKE THIS is a full-length, standalone emotional and sexy New Adult contemporary romance novel of 400+ pages/90,000 words and is intended for readers 18+.

Serena was tall enough that his mouth was right in front of hers when she tilted up her face to look at him. She could feel her breath coming faster, and his heartbeat picking up against her hand where it rested over his chest.
"Maybe," Sean's gaze dropped from her eyes to her mouth, "you should kiss me."
Serena surprised them both by not hesitating at all before softly pressing her lips against his. Heat instantly enveloped her, both from his hands tightening on her waist and the sparks that crackled from just one sweet kiss.
His request was deep and hungry. And it was her own hunger for him―and pure feminine instinct―that sent her hands up from his chest to twine around his neck. Her mouth had barely touched his again when his lips came crashing down onto hers.
His groan, her gasp, they were both one hundred percent pleasure at a kiss that was at once rough yet sweet, possessive yet gentle. And when he moved one hand from her waist to cradle her cheek, she felt warm and cherished as he slowly angled her jaw so that he could take the kiss deeper. His tongue slicked out across her lower lip, leaving a sensual path of fire in its wake. One that could only be quenched by another taste, and then when that wasn't enough, the slow slide of his tongue against hers.
She felt hot, desperate, achy. Wanted.
But, overwhelmed by it all―the heat and desire and confusion―she abruptly pulled away.
"Serena?" She was surprised to see that he looked as overwhelmed as she did. "Are you okay?"
She put her hand over her racing heart as if to try to slow it. "Every time you kiss me, I..."
She loved words, and hoped to make a career out of them, but right then she couldn't find any of the right ones to explain what his kisses did to her. Not when she was only just beginning to understand what a truly powerful force desire could be.
But he didn't seem to need her to finish her sentence as he said, "I know. When you kiss me, it's like that for me, too."

The start of a new, and awesome series, Bella Andre has done it again. I was hooked from the first page and couldn't stop until I finished. One of my complaints, and it's a complaint that I have in all of her serialized books, is that the epilogue focuses on what her next book in the series will be about, not finding closure to her current storyline, even though they usually end happily, a glimpse into their future wouldn't kill anyone. However I do get that by not totally ending a story, the reader has to continue the series to get the closure of characters in another book in the series. Another complaint I have is that this new series is a little too close to her Sullivan series, in that each character is excellent in something, whether it be a famous musician (this book- the Sullivan's had a movie star), both books have a baseball star in the family, and a photographer in the family, and Serena is closely following in the footsteps of librarian Sophie Sullivan (not complaining about that- former librarian here!). I just feel that the author is repeating the same story with different, well developed characters. But I will close with this, I enjoy reading Ms. Andre's work, and I'm looking forward to the next book from her.
Sean's pain of losing his mom was so well written I felt it too. Serena wanted to be who she wanted to be but doing that meant standing up to her mom and possibly losing her, this was also written so you felt her conflict and need. I love when I can truly feel the emotions of the people I'm reading about and Bella always seems to deliver this and this book was not any different.
If you've never read any of Bella's books this would be a great one start with. When you're done I can tell you'll want to read more. Once I read one of her books I had to read all of her books and have loved them all.
it was a journey that left me with mixed feelings.
'Kiss Me Like This' introduces us to a new Bella Andre family: the Morrisons, who had suffered the loss of an important family member and are going through rough times.
The first brother to know is Sean Morrison, who's used alcohol and hook ups to deal with the grief. Then it enters Serena Britten, whose dream of going to college is finally coming true, but whose life with her controlling mother hasn't been easy.
The two of them meet and well… it's love at first sight.
If you're a fan of this kind of development, you'll be fascinated with this book from page 1. But if you're like me, who's not a fan of this kind of stories, then it's going to be a bumpy road.
TBH, I'm not that against 'love at first sight' stories as long as they're well developed but although I love Bella Andre, the first chapters were hard to get into because these two guys had just met and were already missing the other when they were not together.
It took me more than half of the book to finally enjoy this journey. And not because of Sean and Serena's relationship. It was Sean as an individual and his relationship with his family that completely pulled me in.
Bella Andre knows how to write stories with big families and she didn't fail this time. And that's the reason my rating's higher than I intended. I felt their love for each other, their loss and how much they were grieving, especially Sean (because I got to read his POV). I wanted to get inside the book, hug him and take his pain away.
Serena in the other hand, I found it hard to love her. I understood that she hadn't been out in the world so much. She was innocent and naive but I was looking forward to experiencing along with her her every first. I was looking forward to seeing her getting a backbone. But that didn't happen until the last chapters so before that--at one point--I just couldn't connect with her anymore or feel sympathy.
'Kiss me like this' was an enjoyable read when it came to the hero and his family. It was also nice in the last chapters to finally like the main characters' relationship and I ABSOLUTELY LOVED the cameos and mentions from my Sullivans. But I was not a fan of the love at first sight theme and the heroine for most of the book.
And about the NA genre, well… it's not that different from the Adult genre but I'll stick with Bella's books for a while before exploring other territories. I'm not in love with this genre yet but I trust Bella Andre. And I am looking forward to reading Drew Morrison's story and getting to know more of the Morrisons family.
