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!

Yes...Bella Andre has developed a wonderful family with the Sullivan's. Who wouldn't love six hunky men! The story is somewhat light and predictable but is an enjoyable and light-hearted romance with enough steamy scenes to keep your attention. In this book, the second of the series, eldest brother Marcus meets up with younger pop star Nicola. Initially he cannot get past the age difference between them but also cannot deny his ever-growing attraction for Nicola. Marcus is rather controlling and uptight but Nicola brings out his best for the ultimate happy ending.
Marcus I guess. He tries to be so in control but he's really a softee underneath and really loves his family. He would do anything for them.
Eva does a great job with all the characters and is consistent across the audiobooks.
Age does't matter.
I really enjoy how Andre sets up the next book in each book in the series and typically ties up an end from the previous book. I have all the Sullivan books either in e-reader or audio formats. Also gotta love the $1.99 audiobook after purchasing the Kindle fomat. Those wispersync deals are going to break me!
No. There are so many good authors who write multidimensional stories that offer more humor and passion and emotion and even a bit of reality (well, it IS fiction). I hadn't read any of these previously but the reviews were good. I was disappointed first w/ the performance and then with the drawn out and very predictable text.
Add some dimension. Couple meets, couple EVENTUALLY spends a night together, one declares love, then harsh words that seem like reality vs. the pretend world they've lived in til the harsh words, then they both stop speaking to one another. Oh, and often the primary male and female character thinks to him/herself that the other is the most beautiful person in the world. Of course, cause at several hours in they've spent 48 hours together.
Too monotone, inflections change slightly but not effectively, especially for the primary male character. I'd guess she's from a northern state as she has a way of sliding her words into the ....-er ending. To me it seems she reads but lacks emotion that would indicate she is a fan of the book or the characters.
No. I prefer unedited versions but it's clear that the edited version may be a bit better here. Too often I was wanting to hurry things along, ok, ok, we get it, she's the most beautiful woman in the world and you're lucky to be w/ her (true reflection of the words). I bought two of the series, #2 and #7 and at this point I can't bear the thought of listening to #7.
Apologies for the negative review.
Nurse, mom, loved to read....but now I love to listen. When I retire I hope to hear waves crashing in 1 ear and audible in the other!
I enjoyed the narration.
When Nicola and Marcus meet the first time.....heat!
I loved her voice, she does a nice sexy male voice....
I was a little perturbed at the open ended finish...there will be lots of plots and sub-plots to deal with in upcoming listens...
I love to read. I love all genres but romance in particular. The hotter and steamy and sexier book is the more I want to read it.
the storyh itself is good but there is not one part that wowed me
the emotion behind the words,
I enjoyed listening to the first book. Although I enjoy the first story better and some of the sexy scene seem similar to the first I still thought this was very sexy and enjoyable.
I would listen to this book again because I feel like I know the characters personally. I didn't want the story to end. I wish we had a mature romance movie channel that would produce a mini series or weekly show centered around this family.
This book is part if a set and is much like the other titles in the series. However, I like the author's titles that have steamy scenes and let us learn more about the characters and their emotions.
There was not much that I did not like about the book. Just wish it couldn't end and the non-sex scenes were more.
Many scenes gave me a chuckle and made me smile.
This series is light and entertaining. If you are expecting great literature, you will be disappointed, but if you are looking for a well-written romance that follows the traditional formula, these stories are fun. The narration is easy to listen to, the Sullivan family are too good to be true, but likeable, and Bella Andre writes a steamy love scene as well as any I've read. Good for bedtime listening of if you want to switch your brain off and enjoy yourself.
I love witty, fast-paced books that keep you turning the page.
I nearly quit listening to this book when the inevitable misunderstanding happened halfway through it and I didn't want to deal with angst through the rest. However, the angst, while lasting longer than I like, did wrap up quickly enough that I was able to get to the end and really enjoy the way the characters finally came together. By then, I felt very invested in both Nicola and Marcus, wanting to continue reading the series to find out more about them and the rest of the Sullivans. The steam factor on this book was even higher than the first, so brace yourself if you're looking for a simple romance novel. That said, it is tastefully done and clearly surrounded by love. I just love a good happily ever after story!
