Get ready for another Sullivan to fall in love in Bella Andre's bestselling contemporary romance series!

BOOK DESCRIPTION: Sophie Sullivan, a librarian in San Francisco, was five years old when she fell head over heels in love with Jake McCann. Twenty years later, she’s convinced the notorious bad boy still sees her as the “nice” Sullivan twin. That is, when he bothers to look at her at all. But when they both get caught up in the magic of the first Sullivan wedding, she knows it’s long past time to do whatever it takes to make him see her for who she truly is...the woman who will love him forever.

Jake has always been a magnet for women, especially since his Irish pubs made him extremely wealthy. But the only woman he really wants is the one he can never have. Not only is Sophie his best friend’s off-limits younger sister...he can’t risk letting her get close enough to discover his deeply hidden secret.

Only, when Sophie appears on his doorstep as Jake’s every fantasy come to life—smart, beautiful, and shockingly sexy—he doesn’t have a prayer of taking his eyes, or his hands, off her. And he can’t stop craving more of her sweet smiles and sinful kisses. Because even though Jake knows loving Sophie isn’t the right thing to can he possibly resist?

My Review:

Another great installment to this fantastic family series!! This book is about Sophie, or as the family calls her, "Nice". She is one of the twin girls (Lori is Naughty) in this family of eight siblings. Being "Nice" means that her six older brothers and family friend Jake have always put her in a sweet little protected box. Sophie is tired of the box and the moniker and decides it's time to claim her own fate...and sets out to seduce Jake on the night of Chase and Chloe's wedding. And that's where this fabulous story begins.

I love the chemistry in this book. Sophie and Jake have been friends forever, but they are also complete opposites. He's a tattooed bad boy who has made his career from running and creating Irish pubs. She's a librarian with her nose always buried in a book. Regardless of those differences, they have both always harbored secret feelings for the other. The difference is Sophie wants the relationship while Jake doesn't think that he's good enough for her. Most of the family agrees with him. They know him and his womanizing ways. They just don't realize that most of it is a front to cover and bury his feelings for Sophie. I thought they were wonderful together!

The only reason that I marked the rating down a little on this one was because the story wasn't anything new. I knew exactly where the story was going, but that didn't keep me from enjoying the story every step of the way.

Once again, I have to say how much I am enjoying this series. There are still four stories yet to come out...Yippee!! We still have Smith (world famous actor), Lori (professional choreographer), Zach (mechanic and confirmed bachelor), and Ryan (professional baseball player). Zach's book is next. I cannot wait to read his story. He is the one in the family who has completely dogged everyone else as they have fallen in love. This confirmed bachelor is going to fall HARD when he falls. I can't wait to see who Bella chooses for his heroine!

If you like Contemporary Romance novels that follow a family, I highly recommend this series!!
