From This Moment On is one of the most beautifully sensuous romances I’ve read in a while. Anyone can have a sexual hookup. Nicola and Marcus had so much more. Tenderness, caring, yes dominance but in a fashion that left no doubt that pleasure for both was at the heart of Marcus’ actions. Nicola wasn’t her pop star image in real life – but she wanted one night of passion, one night of simply letting go and being like any other woman on the planet. She got far more than she bargained for.
Their journey is a combination of exploration, tenderness, facing their reality and finding a way to have it all. They will hurt each other, yet they’ll also heal. They will definitely love each other, and they will find a way to make their crazy lives work – together. It’s always fun to see any of the Sullivan siblings, they certainly fill up a room with personality. Although I loved the romance between Nicola and Marcus, I think what touched me most was an acknowledgement that some people put their entire life behind taking care of their family for whatever reason life tosses at them. Marcus finally met a woman who was just as, if not more important to him than his family. Someone he could finally love enough to say to his family who he adored “I’ve done my best for you all, now it’s my turn”. I think we all want that kind of love – where we truly are the first in our partner’s life… not the only but the one for them.
I loved From This Moment On, and I believe you will, too.
I own a Kindle edition of this story.
From This Moment On is an apt title, because from the moment I started reading it, I had trouble putting it down! Ms. Andre uses words beautifully and her characters have layers and layers of depth to them. One complaint I often have about romance novels is that the sex scenes are just too much--I sometimes read the first one or two and skim the rest--but she manages to make each one beautifully explicit. They're not just titillating, they're beautiful writing. And the way she shows Nicola and Marcus falling in love with each other--wow! This is the first book I've read by Bella Andre, but it won't be my last.
Each book is based on one of the San Francisco Sullivans romance. Each book could stand alone, but it would be remiss, not to read them all as they tie together beautifully.
In book 2, Marcus, the oldest Sullivan, feels that his responsibility to helping his mother raise his brothers and sisters is first and his own personal wants way down on the list. He's been looking after and providing for the family for 36 years and sees no change in site. Enter Nico, a bombshell of a singer and his world is rocked forever! Nico has suffered her own setbacks with love and isn't interested in forever after. One night together may change both their hearts.
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.
