Sophie Sullivan, a librarian in San Francisco, was five years old when she fell head over heels in love with Jake McCann. Twenty years later, she's convinced the notorious bad boy still sees her as the "nice" Sullivan twin. That is, when he bothers to look at her at all. But when they both get caught up in the magic of the first Sullivan wedding, she knows it's long past time to do whatever it takes to make him see her for who she truly is...the woman who will love him forever.
Jake has always been a magnet for women, especially since his Irish pubs made him extremely wealthy. But the only woman he really wants is the one he can never have. Not only is Sophie his best friend's off-limits younger sister...he can't risk letting her get close enough to discover his deeply hidden secret.
Only, when Sophie appears on his doorstep as Jake's every fantasy come to life - smart, beautiful, and shockingly sexy - he doesn't have a prayer of taking his eyes, or his hands, off her. And he can't stop craving more of her sweet smiles and sinful kisses. Because even though Jake knows loving Sophie isn't the right thing to do...how can he possibly resist?

All of the Sullivan Books are narrated by Eva Kaminsky and I found her very enjoyable to listen to. This book is well written and I can't wait to start book 5. I just love this series of books.
Yes, I did not want to stop listening. I finished this book in 2 days.
The story between Sophie and Jake was so moving and heartwarming. I've listened to all 7 Sullivan stories now and Sophie and Jake's story is my favorite. I loved all the stories, but this one really got to me. I'm anxiously awaiting Lori's story! I noticed it's already in Kindle format, so hopefully it won't be long coming to Audible.
Sassy dialogue, humor, and a great reader are important to me.
no, story good, but reader was just too slow on this one.
no I could not. Dialogue way too mushy. I love a good core romance, with steamy men, but
Ms Andre fails to pull our strong hero Jake together. These are simple stories, so I can not expect too much, but my time is still involved when listening.
too slow and breathy on this story.
I have all but Gabe's story.(I could not stand the heroine name and daughter after 5 min.)
Ms Andre knows how to pull you in with her hunky men/brothers. Previews seem good, but she fails to deliver a good close. I am awaiting Smith story and can only hope it was as good as Ryan's story.
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 like the audio edition better because the reader bring to life the characters in a way I would not.
The scene where she's becomes a little naughty for the wedding of chase and choe.
She brings the story to life with her expression in her voice.
I thought it was a good story for the characters to continue the story of the Sullivans.
I loved Sophie and Jake. Sophie (aka “Nice”) always behaves as she should. In a family full of “stand outs” , she just wants to blend into the background. She is tired of being obedient and decides to break out of her “Nice” shell at her big brother’s wedding. I actually laughed out loud at the reaction of her 6-older brothers to her new look. Her one night of bravery has lifelong consequences when she discovers she is pregnant. Sophie and Jake discover surprising truths about each other that only make their love stronger. This was a marvelous book! I laughed, I cried, it is now one of my favorites.
Yes I would. I would listen to the whole series again, it is awesome
I loved the story line about anorexia and how all the books led up to Annie getting better, and what happened to her afterwards!
I love the books, but I was quite surprised when they changed the reader on the next book. I really like the one in the first 4 books, so why switch??? The one in the 5th is fine, but I was ready to continue with the other.
I love this book, a god read and just the right story to make you fall in love!
