In Just to Be with You from Bella Andre's New York Times best-selling series about The Sullivans, Ian Sullivan, the powerful and wealthy CEO of Sullivan Investments, has never failed at anything in his life...apart from love and marriage. Certain that he'll never take the plunge again, the last thing he expects is for a beautiful actress to turn his perfectly organized world completely upside down.
Tatiana Landon, one of the hottest talents in Hollywood, has been waiting for true love her whole life. When she meets Ian, she's certain she's finally found it...along with a passion that sizzles hotter than anything in her wildest dreams. All she needs to do now is find a way to convince him to take the risk of loving again.
Ian soon realizes that Tatiana is just as focused on winning his heart as he is on locking it away. But when unexpected circumstances thrust them into a world where real-life rules don't apply, will Ian finally recognize Tatiana as his one true love?
I really enjoy the Sullivan's. I would love to see this family on TV in a TV series. the characters are people we can relate to every-day. their struggles are our struggles or we wish they were all we had to worry about.
What made the experience of listening to Just to Be with You the most enjoyable?
I've listened to many of Bella Andre's Sullivan family books and every single one of them has been enjoyable because the characters are 'down to earth" people who just happen to be beautiful or handsome and rich. They have worked hard for what they have though and it makes me happy hearing how they meet the lover of their dreams.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Just to Be with You?
Near the end of the book there is a party being held for Tatiana and Smith Sullivan to celebrate a movie they had completed. The wonderful way that Ian declares his love for Tatiana is so special and sweet.
What does Eva Kaminsky bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Eva never fails to bring her characters to life. She has a very sensual and seductive way of giving the listener just the right reflection of how the character is really feeling. I smile a lot listening to her.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
When Tatiana decides to back off from Ian so that he can run his business shows what true love is really all about. That took a lot of courage.
Any additional comments?
I am looking forward to the next sexy story about this family!! I never get tired of listening to Eva and hearing just what Bella Andrea comes up with next !!
This is the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow!! For isn't this what each and every one of us wants and needs - to be loved and accepted UNCONDITIONALLY for who we are, as well as who we strive to be?!! Not all of us are lucky enough to find someone who really does see us for exactly who we are, and accepts and loves us for being that person (sometimes not even ourselves), but when you are lucky enough to find it (or have it find you) there is truly no greater gift!!
This is a story I have read, and listened to, repeatedly. I know it will remain one of those stories I continue to turn to again and again. For as great as this story is about reminding us how truly amazing it is to navigate lifes trials and tribulations, and to celebrate the triumphs and treasures that mean so much more with a partner who cherishes the journey with all it's ups and downs; I think we all have those moments when we need to be reminded it is just as important to love and accept Ourselves, and forgive ourselves our failures and disappointments!! Only then, as Ian discovers, can you have, and give it all!!
I hope this Sullivan story enlightens and enriches you, as it has for me. Remember to celebrate the disappointments, as well as the joys of your journey to love and fulfillment, because you can't truly appreciate one without the contrast of the other.
Another amazing story by Bella Andre that captures why LOVE IS TRULY THE GREATEST GIFT OF ALL!!!
Very engaging story introducing a new member of the extended family. The challenges, pain and joy of making ones life work are beautifully portrayed. The characters are authentic human beings, warts and all. The fairy tale aspects of love and the prickly nature of real families are balanced nicely.
Love it! adore all the Sullivans! Eva Kaminsky your the best narrator ever! Bella you did it again!
This book was absolutely amazing! I had the hardest time putting it down long enough to do anything else!!!
Some one wrote it was slow, not so , great , I would listen to more of her books! Great great hot
Mary Sue city in here. This heroine is saccharine sweet. I couldn't bear her by the end of the book. I didn't enjoy the narration but perhaps this is just a matter of taste. I find her modulations to be strange and forced. I suggest you listen to the sample before you make the purchase.
Once again Bella introduces us to a new Sullivan we can cheer on until true love wins out. I have always loved a good series and Bella gives us a great one. while catching us up with old friends.
Eva Kaminsky narrates in such a way that you feel you are viewing the action.
I finished the story and then started it over again.
it was a good story, but got kinda too sappy for me at the end. otherwise, pretty good.
I've been wondering about Ian since half way through this series. Until now he has been an aloof, mysterious character, who is in a difficult remote and emotionless place. Tatiana delights me. Some may argue that she is too good to be true. There is enough imperfection in her character however, to make her real and believable. The story of Ian and Tatiana is one of my favourite Sullivan episodes. So good to know that although this is book 12 in the series, there are more to come.
