But nothing goes as planned. The two find out more than they want about each other, especially an age difference and part ways.
But fate isn’t done with them after one night and throws them together to once again find out that there is more than just passion to draw them together.
I can’t say how much I love this series without coming across as a gushing, babbling fool. This family rocks my world with awesome men and sisters, but also a closeness that only comes when a family truly cares for each other. Marcus has shouldered a lot of responsibility over the years, and at 36 he is ready to settle down with a woman and family he always dreamed of. He just can’t picture himself with Nico though and does some things that really hurt her once more.
Nicola grew so much in this book. She went from a woman who had a bad image to realizing she couldn’t run from it by being good. She had to show why she wasn’t that bad girl. She wants a family and a man who can love her above everything and won’t settle for less. She grows so much in confidence that she takes a leap in the story on her career that pays off and makes everyone take a new look at her as a artist.
The love between these two isn’t easy. They don’t want to make it easy because they are both afraid of being hurt. The walls fall down slowly between them and the Marcus learns that if he wants something enough he will figure out a way to get it and support the woman he loves. These Sullivan men rock my world with how patient and understanding they can be…even if you have to knock it into them like Marcus!
The story isn’t without some hot love scenes that leave me panting for more. But what I love is the story just instant about love scenes, it’s about real life characters and how they struggle to find love like the rest of us.
Loving this series, so start from the beginning!
