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!

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!
Hot romance/Sci Fi we're so lucky to have Audible to feed our book addictions. I love walking my precious dog Sydney & listening to my books
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. :)
BOUGHT THIS ON 2:1 SALE. BASED UPON OTHER BOOK, I'M NOT EVEN GOING TO WASTE MY TIME DOWNLOADING THIS BOOK. IN MY DEFENSE- I HAD THE FLU WHEN I BOUGHT IT AND WAS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR MY ACTIONS.
I made the mistake of downloading the first 2 books in this series at the same time, rather than listening to the 1st one and then NOT getting the second one. I got about 3/4 of the way through the first one, and had to stop. So then I tried the second one thinking it would be different-- it's not. I like a little steamy romance too, but sheesh this is practically porn. Plus there is ZERO storyline. She meets the guy and is all of a sudden trembling with need. Puhh-leeease.
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.
this is the second book in this series and I'm downloading the third as we speak. it's fun to go from sibling to sibling in each book and "seeing" the characters again from the previous book. love this series.
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
