Can two people who have both sworn off love find forever in each other's arms? Find out in If You Were Mine, the fifth book in Bella Andre's best-selling Sullivan family contemporary romance series.
The last thing Zach Sullivan wants is to take care of his brother's new puppy for two weeks. Until he meets the dog trainer, that is. Heather is bright, beautiful, and he can't stop thinking about her. Unfortunately, she just might be the only woman on earth who wants nothing to do with him.
Heather Linsey can't believe she's stuck working with one of the city's top dogs, auto-shop tycoon Zach Sullivan. Especially when his focus is clear from the start-not only to learn how to deal with his temporary puppy...but also to make her his. Having sworn off love at seventeen when she realized it was nothing more than a pack of lies, Heather has stuck to her vow never to fall for a charming man.
But as Heather's determination to push Zach away only fuels his determination to get closer-and the sensual and emotional connection between them grows more and more undeniable-will the biggest Sullivan bad boy of all tempt her into believing in love again?

Book 2: FROM THIS MOMENT ON (Marcus)

I love books, it's my great escape.
I totally loved Zack Sullivan. I was thinking that this book would be good but I did not think it could get any better with this series. I am so glad to report...I was wrong. Zack Sullivan is strong, sweet and so charming. Zack is so very sweet to Heather and helps her regain her faith in the male species. Their story is very touching and I simply can’t wait to read book #6. Please keep these books coming. They are terrific!!!! This book and the series gets 5 stars from me. I wish I could give it a 10.
Stay at home mother of three teenagers. Love to listen while exercising or doing housework. Give me a good book and I'll make excuses to iron!
Of the Sullivan brothers, Zack is one most like their deceased father. Because of this similarity, he is believes that he is destined to die young just like their father. Therefore, Zack tries to keep his distance from everyone, while living life to the fullest. Thanks to a meddling 7-year old, he isn’t going to be alone for long. When his brother takes his fiancé and her daughter on vacation, Zack is left puppy sitting. Zack, the ideal bachelor, has no idea what to do with a new puppy. However, it isn’t long before Heather and Atlas (her dog) have stolen the heart of both Zack and the puppy. This is a good read with the story going straight to the dogs! Excellent! Cannot wait until December when the next audio installment of the Sullivan’s is due out!
I haven't "read" a book since 1998, just not interested....after the 50 Shades Trilogy, I have become an audio book addict! I am a very tough critic.
I love the series, I can't wait for the next one to come to Audible! When I want easy listening and a heart warming story, mixed with characters that I came to know, along with new ones, I reach for The Sullivans, EVERY TIME!!
She is wonderful for this series, I couldn't think of anyone else reading it.
12 step program please. I am addicted to Audible! I love trashy sexy books, award winning novels and everything between. Bring it!
No. I tried this book because it was on sale and because it had high reviews. I was not able to finish this book. The characters were flat and boring. Granted, I have not read the entire series so maybe if i had read the series, I would have found the Sullivan family interesting.
I knew I hit cheese-Overload when Zach finds Heather in his kitchen making eggs and he basically feels a pang in his heart. He's had a lot of women offer to make him breakfast in the past but he's never let a woman do it because he's never wanted to get that close or some mumbo-jumbo like that. Come on, we are talking about a grown man turning down countless meals! I grew up with a lot of men and if there is one thing I know, they never turn down food!
our hero is just plain sexy. Our heroine is just too unsure for me! Weak women who get strong at the end of a story are not for me. the author is too busy making sure you want to buy the rest of the series. I caution you to finish one first before buying more.
You can choose which ever story you like. I picked this one #5, it started out with a puppy.this is a new author for me, she writes all the stories very wordy, almost like a diary. These are not for me. Listen to the full story before buying more.
She is not for me. I have only a few I really love. anna fields, natalie ross, gabra zackman.I buy most of these 3 readers work.
2/3 of the way, great. then it faded. I am not looking for Hemmingway. I do like a book that makes you want to return for another listen. this was not it
Bella Andre has done it, again. If You Were Mine is the 5th book in The Sullivans series and it is every bit as good as the first 4. I absolutely love that as the series progresses no book suffers. Each book has its own individual story and can easily stand alone. But, it’s much better read in order. This is simply because she refers to the previous couples and we get a peak at their progression. I listen to this book in audio and love how Eva Kaminsky narrates this family.
Zach Sullivan has been duped. His sweet, little niece needs a puppy sitter. A little guilt and a lot of pleas Zach finds himself as the temporary owner of a little ball of fur. After all, he’s such a sweet, helpless puppy. How much trouble can he be? Hah! Zach has been saddled with a mini demon and needs help fast.
Heather Linsey loves dogs and is living her life’s dream. She owns a dog training business and takes it very seriously. That’s why when she’s asked, as a personal favor from a client, to work in a special case she doesn't hesitate. When she shows up at Sullivan Auto and hears a big, grouchy man yelling at this poor, little, helpless puppy she knows she did the right thing. What kind of monster is this guy?
It doesn't take long for Heather to see how sexy and sweet Zach really is. The two of them find an instant attraction that they are trying hard to fight. Zach doesn't believe that he has any kind of future with a woman. He lost his father at a young age and everyone says he’s just like his dad. He just can’t let anyone else suffer the same fate that his mother did. In one of their great conversations he learns that Heather does not believe in forever after he can’t imagine his good fortune. Who wouldn't jump at the chance of a fling with the most beautiful woman he’s ever seen? He doesn't expect that his feelings are much stronger than a fling until it’s too late and he’s reeling from it all.
This story was so much fun. I absolutely love the antics of the puppy and how he befriended the much larger dog that Heather owns. I could totally picture the pair of them playing. It was so funny to see Zach learn to train the little guy and heartwarming to see him fall in love with not only the puppy, but the puppy trainer.
Each character had fears and parts of their past to overcome, but it was so worth it in the end. It actually brought tears to my eyes as they struggled to work it out.
Yes, I would recommend this series to a friend because it has interest, love, and keeps your attention.
The family bond and love and passion between the couple.
Yes, I have listened to all of the "Sullivans" series thus far and will continue until they are over. I love how Bella Andre entwine the story of love, passion, and family into every book. It keeps me coming back for more.
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.
