Publisher's Summary

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!

    "Falling"

    I'm seriously falling in love with the stories about the Sullivans! Can't tell you how much I enjoy listening to the stories, and I've been burning through about three of them over the last four days! If you haven't heard/read the earlier book, you should start there! Definitely worth it!
    Happy reading/listening :D

    Where does From This Moment On rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    *

    From this moment is the great second installment in the Sullivan book series from Bella Andre.

    Marcus is 36 years old and has just gotten out of the relationship because he catches his girlfriend with another man in bed. He decides to go out and have a night on the town, meet a woman and take her to bed., No strings, no expectations.

    Nicola is a pop star with the reputation of a party girl who never spends the night alone. The truth is quite the opposite. So she decides for one night, since the tabloids say she's a party girl she WILL go out to a club, find someone to take to bed, no strings new expectations.

    So Mark Marcus and Nicola meet at a club. He has no idea that while she looks familiar, she is the rock star Nico famous all over the globe.

    From the club, to the hotel room the relationship begins begins in a strange way.

    Bella Andre is a writer in a particular style and she is the master.

    Eva Kaminski does a wonderful job reading.. She has a smooth voice and is a good storyteller.

    Notes: Descriptions of sex

    Credit worthy/$: These books are included in sales quite often. I wait and buy them for a 2-for-1 credit, etc. offer when they come up. I am listening to them in order so this is only the second book from the series. I will wait for a sale to get numbers 3-7 and I already have 8 through 10. For that reason I save my credit. However, they are relatively inexpensive to purchase especially on sale.

    Story
    "The pop star and the vintner"

    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.

    "Love the Sullivan Family!"

    Marcus Sullivan is the oldest of the Sullivan clan. He has spent his life helping his mother take care of the rest of his siblings after the death of his father. Marcus always puts their needs before his own. After leaving his brother's engagement party he goes to visit his girlfriend only to find her in bed with another man. He always thought they would get married even if he didn't really love her. So Marcus finds himself at a club wanting to find someone new just to sleep with with no strings attached.

    Nicola or Niko as all her fans know her is a world famous pop star on the brink of just making it. She is in San Francisco to record her new music video. She finds herself locked up and lonely in her hotel room trying to shy away from her fame and being used in the past. She realizes that she can't hide forever and goes out to have a night of fun with a stranger. She finds Marcus, who doesn't know who she is since he is older. He is immediately captured with her beauty and they decide to spend just one night together. Only they can't seem to keep apart and one night turns into many more.

    I forgot how much I loved this series. First of all I love that it is based out of my hometown of San Francisco! Secondly I love the whole Sullivan clan and all of their dynamics. It is great to have a story about a loving caring family and how having that develops all the different characters to their own unique set of traits. I loved Marcus and was happy he finally got is happily ever after. Looking forward to listening to the next book in the series!

    "Great way to spend the afternoon..."

    Read for Review/Listened for Fun (Book Trib/Audible)
    Overall Rating: 3.50
    Story Rating: 3.00
    Character Rating: 4.00

    Audio Rating: 3.75(not part of the overall rating)

    First Thought when Finished: Loved diving back into the world of the Sullivans! From This Moment On was a great afternoon read!

    Story Thoughts: I love the world of the Sullivans! Families that stick together, love each other, and support each other are fantastic. The romance between Marcus and Nicola just didn’t work for me (sometimes that happens) BUT the flow of the story was very smooth. Bella’s writing is really well paced and you care deeply about the characters. So even if a particular romance doesn’t work for you the book is still worth the time spent reading it!

    Character Thoughts: I loved Marcus! He was just swoon-worthy all around. I loved his alpha head-of-the-household traits because he also seemed very fair/grounded. I also really liked Nicola. There was more to her than what initially meets the eye. Plus the way she was written felt organically real to me. She was very much ahead of her years in some ways but in others you could see her “youngness”. While I wasn’t a fan of their romance, I did really connect with them as individuals.

    Audio Thoughts:

    Narrated By Eva Kaminsky / Length: 7 hrs and 22 mins

    Eva does a great job with all the female voices in the series! I am warming up to her male voices but they still aren’t my favorite. They are not distracting though. Her pacing is great and her differentiating between characters is really good. Overall, I will give the audiobooks one more whirl to see if we finally click.

    Final Thoughts: Really excited about the next book! I think it will be a doozy :)

    Story
    "Almost as good as the first book"
    Would you consider the audio edition of From This Moment On to be better than the print version?

    I haven't read the print version just this audio. I loved book 1 so I gave this a listen and found that I enjoyed it almost as much. Marcus is wonderfully powerful although I think that in real life he wouldn't really be the right man for Nicola, just my opinion. Still it was very entertaining all the way through.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I like Mary, the Mum. After everything she's been through she still has the energy to listen, watch and participate in all the children's daily needs.


    What does Eva Kaminsky bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Eva is just wonderful. She really, really is. She's is believable and without fear adds to the sensuality. Unafraid to make the "oohs and ahs" she totally brings the steamy scenes home. The male voices are portrayed well enough and I love the way she really makes the females characters actually sound like they're speaking, literally, she's that good.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Mmm, in this book, I don't know... Perhaps "Never too old for a young fresh start"? Nah, too corney maybe.


    Any additional comments?

    Already loading book 3, which has a fire fighter in it and I have a feeling is going to be gooood.
