In From This Moment On, best-selling author Bella Andre introduces you to Marcus, the second Sullivan bad boy, whose life will never be the same from the moment he meets Nicola....
For 36 years, Marcus Sullivan has been the responsible older brother, stepping in to take care of his seven siblings after their father died when they were children. But when the perfectly ordered future he's planned for himself turns out to be nothing but a lie, Marcus needs one reckless night to shake free from it all.
Nicola Harding is known throughout the world by only one name - Nico - for her catchy, sensual pop songs. Only what no one knows about the 25-year-old singer is that her sex-kitten image is totally false. After a terrible betrayal by a man who loved fame far more than he ever loved her, she vows not to let anyone else get close enough to find out who she really is ... or hurt her again. Especially not the gorgeous stranger she meets at a nightclub, even though the hunger - and the sinful promises - in his dark eyes make her want to spill all her secrets.
One night is all Nicola and Marcus agree to share with each other. But nothing goes as they plan, when instead of simply tangling limbs, they find a deeper connection than either of them could have anticipated. And even though they both try to fight it, growing emotions and sizzling attraction keep drawing them closer together - close enough for them to wonder if stealing one more secret moment together can ever be enough....
NOTE: Explicit language, very steamy sex scenes ... and lots of emotion!

AUDIOBOOKS+TASKS=ADVENTURES! I 💙Romances: Hist./Insp./Contemp.🔹I Also Receive Books In Exchange 4 Reviews In Varied Genres🔹NO SPOILERS 🙊
This is an enjoyable light hearted listen. Granted, this series doesn't arouse your mind intellectually but it does entertain. The story and romance was good and kept me interested. I got the first two in this series on sale so I'm actually glad I didn't use credits for them. If you can get them on sale they're worth a listen.
I love books, it's my great escape.
This is my 2nd book by this author. I was hoping that book two would not be let down and I am so glad to say it was not. I really enjoyed the story of Marcus Sullivan and Nicola. It was charming with a inelligent story line. And, yes this author brings the heat. This is what I expect in a good modern day romance. The narrator really brings this story to live. Did I say I have already downloaded book #3. I am so glad I found this author, she is totally terriffic.
I enjoy listening to books as it makes the train trip to work and back everyday more enjoyable, it is not always easy to open a book, especially if you are standing, but listening is great. You get much more out of the book if the narrator is good like Eva, makes it more interesting.
Just a nice story, easy to listen to didn't require a great deal of thinking about which suits me to and from work.
Her ability to make the people come alive and you knew who was talking as she kept the voices going really well. Sometimes narrators fall short with remembering who is talking The queen of narrators if Susan Ericksson.
I haven't "read" a book since 1998, just not interested....after the 50 Shades Trilogy, I have become an audio book addict! I am a very tough critic.
The story is great, the continuation in this series is something I'm looking forward to. I am dying to know what happens to the next Sullivan!
I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
This book didn't disappoint - it had great characters, good plot, a doomed love affair and was thoroughly entertaining which is what we hope we get from a book.
Worth a credit? These books aren't rocket science but if you're in the mood for a light, easygoing enjoyable listen that doesn't challenge you then this is your book.
Addicted to any type of Romance/Erotica audio books.
This is the 2nd book in the Sullivan's series and it was everything I hoped it would be. I really liked Marcus, he's the eldest of the Sullivan kids and he's got the "in control" thing going on =) The narrator did a good job too. I think I would have liked it better read by a male narrator but I tend to like male narrators for strong male characters. This is typical romance story and completely worth the credit!
I know this is a romance but that doesn't mean it needs to be stupid. I don't know which one was worse the narrator or the story. I couldn't even finish this book I was almost to the end but I thought if I had to listen to that narrator's voice for one more minute I would be sick. I turned it off. I've never listened/read a Bella Andre book before and I think any male would be insulted by the dialog. Real men do not talk, act or think like that...if they did I'd be single. Yuck!
I kept asking myself if I would like the story better if I read it (I really hated the narrator). I won't be getting any others by this author or narrator. I guess everyone is different and some will love this book but it just wasn't for me.
I am an avid listener. I listen between 75-100 hours per month on my iPhone: 60% fiction to 40% non-fiction.
Marcus and Nicola (Pop-star) are an unlikely piaring. I didn't expect this line-up and I am happy to say that it works. I like being delighted by plots. This is more of a coming of age for the 20-something woman, successful pop-star who must reconcile who she is, who everyone thinks she is, and who she wants to be. Marcus has to resolve his role as the patriarch of the family with the happiness and delight he has for the woman. I love the opening couple of chapters of the novel, when you finish them you will be hooked for the whole thing.
The Sullivan clan is lovable. One critique is Andre is slow to widen the circle to include others in the family especially from book 1. There novel is littered with pointed moments. Kaminsky does a great job narrating.
I love the way she changed Marcus and Nicola, very believable and sweet. This book is heavy on the romance. This series continues to get better. I already have read book three. Couldn't even take the time to write this review before I finished it.
Give me water to swim and surf in. That with a glass of white wine and the sun. That's heaven.
Yes, because it has both mixtures of darkness and light!T
The Sullivan ideals.
The Main character
Toward the end
I enjoy historical, paranormal, and contemporary romance. Also steampunk, sci-fi, fantasy, suspense, and fiction. I'm open to about anything
Setting: Mainly San Francisco present day
Genre: Contemporary romance
Narration: Ms Kaminsky once again provided a creditable performance. I'm getting used to her style, so any limitation are pretty much forgotten.
This begins right after the first book in the series. But, as with the first, the falling in love happens too quickly. Lust at first sight? Yes. Love within two days? Not so much. Maybe, despite the fact that most of my books are romance, I'm not a romantic. But I really did like the situation of two disparate people hooking up. Nicola picks Marcus up in a bar for a one-night-stand, but they can't get enough of each other, so they extend their sexual liaison through Monday. I think it started on Wednesday. I really like Marcus. He's conflicted about the differences between them. Then on Monday, Nicola decides that the relationship can't possibly work. So at least toward the end, you finally get a sense of time passing as they work things out. Surprisingly, the book doesn't end with plans to marry, or even cohabit. That's a change from what I usually read.
You will likely want to read the entire series because the characters are so likable. There are 8 San Francisco Sullivan's. You can space the books out, of course, I read them all practically back-to-back. I think I had to wait for the last two or three, but I got those as they came out.
Worth the credit and time? Yes.
"Romantic and hot."
I have listened and re listened to this whole series and love all the male charectors. There's just the right amount of romance: if a little predictable, as well as steam to keep me satisfied.
