The Way You Look Tonight is the newest book in Bella Andre's New York Times and USA Today bestselling Sullivan series. Over a million books sold so far!
As a very successful private investigator who has caught most of the cheaters in Seattle with their pants down, Rafe Sullivan believes true, lasting love only happens once in a blue moon. Needing to get away from the city to clear his head, he finds the lake house where he spent the best summers of his life is now a wreck…but the sweet girl next door is all grown up and prettier than anything he's ever seen.
While Brooke Jansen is happy making and selling chocolate truffles in her small Pacific Northwest lake town, she secretly longs to experience something wild. So when her favorite "Wild Sullivan" moves in again next door after more than a decade away, and sparks fly between them, she can't stop wondering if being bad is really as good as it always seemed…and just how long it will be before she can find out.
But when their summer fling quickly spirals into deeper emotions than either of them were expecting, can they survive the heat between them? Or will Rafe make the biggest mistake of his life and end up losing the best thing that's ever happened to him?

I think this enhances the print version. But it is a great alternative.
Brooke Jansen was my favorite character. She's got a great profession and had me wishing that this came with smell-a-vision. And having a female narrator also helps the reader identify with the female character.
No I have not but am looking forward to changing that. Just by the sound of her voice she paints a great picture of the Sullivan family. You also won't get bored listening to her.
It made me smile. It's a great way to fall in love with a family who seem to care about each other.
If you've never experienced an audiobook before, this would be a great way to change that. If you're a fan of Bella Andre, you should experience one of her books in audio form. This would be a great one to take to the beach or a lake (a great way to set the ambiance).
I am a busy sports mom listening to romance only. If the narrator is good and it has a decent plot, I will find it enjoyable.
By now, there really isn't anything you can go wrong with these books. Easy sweet read and I like them all.
Great as usual.
This story is a good read. Rafe is a jaded private invstigator who also spent many years on th police force. His view of the wolrd is from the point of catching men cheating on their wives time and time again.
Brooke is a sheltered woman who has finally broken from her parents smothering and settled into a lif where she is constantly recreating herself to become the woman she wants to be.
They were childhood friends who lived next door. Brooke was Rafe's sister's best friend growing up. They find each other again when Rafe buys his childhood home and comes to unwind for the summer.
They have instant chemistry and bridge the gaps of time, Rafe's preception of her still being a nine year old to his fourteen year old self, as well as distance.
They explore some kinky sex in their journey to the alter.
This is a feel good romance with sex sprinkled in.
I the the Sullivans but I have to admit that Rafe is one of my favorite. He is dark but has a heart of gold! It was only fitting for him to get a woman as bright as Brook! I just wish there was more to their story! Just an amazing love story. I read romances all the time but I have to be honest the Sullivan's have been one of my favorite series
Yes. That said, when I get tired of intense drama, sex, mystery, and plot, I turn to BA's books. I love the Sullivan series and am glad to see it's extension to another branch of the family.
I think the disparity between Brooke & Rafe makes the story interesting. The least interesting is that the story didn't really have much depth and it seemed rushed; rushed to meet again, rushed to love, rushed, rushed, rushed, almost as if BA was trying to hurry through the book in order to get to another.
The end when Rafe is making his amends. (No spoilers)
Not BA's best, but easy, soft and enjoyable.
Chocolate Truffles melt in your mouth and so will Rafe and Brooke love the Sullivans Thank You Bella for more Sullivans
I usually enjoy Bella Andre's books but this one fell far short. Pretty much everything I appreciated about her work is missing in this attempt. It has a weak, almost non-existent story line that moves from one erotic session to the next with limited character or plot development. Although I was tempted a number of times to stop listening I persevered through to the end, hoping it would get better. It didn't.
The book started out strong, but soon became just one sex scene after another. Apparently the passion between the two main characters was what this book was about. Everything else: vulnerabilities, flaws, life were an after thought to fit in to the erotic scenes. I stayed with it thinking it would get better. Didn't happen.
I would not recommend this book to a friend because of the sexual content. It has a good story & is written well. I just do not care for the sexual content.
"One word - BoRING!"
I had such high hopes for this one. Lovely setting, near Seattle, there's a lakehouse, good storyline indicated. It fell seriously flat. It was painfully boring and slow moving. The characters very one dimensional and the dialogue didn't grab me at all. In fact the dialogue surrounding the 'love scenes' was at times cringy. The words 'sensuality' and 'wild' were used at least once in every paragraph yet nothing 'wild' ever actually happened.
Overall disappointing and would give it a miss if I were you.
