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!

    "One dimensional story"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    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.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    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.


    What didn’t you like about Eva Kaminsky’s performance?

    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.


    Was From This Moment On worth the listening time?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    Apologies for the negative review.

    "open ended...."
    What made the experience of listening to From This Moment On the most enjoyable?

    I enjoyed the narration.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of From This Moment On?

    When Nicola and Marcus meet the first time.....heat!


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

    I loved her voice, she does a nice sexy male voice....


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    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.

    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.

    Story
    "I love this family."
    Would you listen to From This Moment On again? Why?

    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.


    What other book might you compare From This Moment On to and why?

    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.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    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.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Many scenes gave me a chuckle and made me smile.

    "Entertaining and Fun"

    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.

    Story
    "Stick with it to the end"

    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!

    Any additional comments?

    Another Sexy Lustful read from Bella. Songster Nick plans a one night stand. Marcus has just found the woman he thought he could have a life with in bed with someone else. Both head out for a night to forget. Love/lust - sparks fly when they meet at a night club. What happens is three weeks of unforgettable sex.... Eva Kaminsky's narration was one again wonderful. :)
