Bella Andre has been one of my auto-buy authors and has been since I read the very first book in the Sullivan series. Ms. Andre pulls me into her stories from the very first page and I can't wait to read each new story as it is released.
Since I Fell For You is the 2nd book in the New York Sullivans series and is Suzanne Sullivan's story. Suzanne is a totally kick-ass heroine who runs her own digital security company and is more than capable of taking care of herself. Her three brothers don't seem as sure about it and hire bodyguard Roman Huson when Suzanne's company has cyber and phone attacks.
I loved Suzanne and Roman pretty much connected from the moment they met. Yes Suzanne wanted to get rid of him as her bodyguard, but she was still insanely attracted to him. I will say it totally cracked me up that Suzanne totally started wearing super sexy outfits trying to get Roman to quit, and all it did was make him want her more. I also loved that while they were attracted to one another from the very first time they saw each other, they didn't act on that attraction immediately. Yes I do love the instant gratification element sometimes, but with Roman and Suzanne, I liked they let their attractions build and grow before acting on it.
I loved that Roman shared everything about his past with Suzanne, thinking it would push her away, but it really made Suzanne love him even more. Roman and Suzanne had the most amazing chemistry. They were smoking hot together when they made love. There was also a sweetness about them that made me fall for them as a couple. I also loved how protective they were of each other as well. Roman especially would do anything in his power to keep Suzanne safe. While I was a little surprised to find out who was behind the attacks, I loved how Suzanne, her family, and Roman worked together to figure everything out. I absolutely loved how Suzanne's brain worked and found her intelligence one of her strongest qualities.
Since I Fell For You was a wonderful addition to the Sullivans series. I actually am behind on the series right now and can say it reads very well as a stand alone. Ms. Andre once again delivers a beautiful, sexy, and emotional story for her readers. I highly recommend this story to fans of contemporary romance
