It Must Be Your Love by Bella Andre is the first book I have read in the Seattle Sullivans. I really need to go back and read Rafe’s story that is burning up my Kindle. The Seattle Sullivans are the cousins to the original eight Sullivans that I have read all the way through…and adored. While the original group is eight siblings, the Seattle group is only five *sobs*…I want more. Since Jack (the father of the original group) had multiple siblings I look for this series to continue on for a while. But the male genes seem to be strong with this family as they are mostly male.

It Must Be Your Love is Mia Sullivan’s story. Falling in love with a rock star after a glorious week together, Ford gives Mia an ultimatum to go on tour with him. When she doesn’t leap right away at the offer, he cruelly ends their relationship. Now five years later, Ford has grown up and knows Mia is the only woman for him, but how does he get her back after breaking her heart?

Mia Sullivan is a successful realtor owning her own business. When she gets an anonymous buyer, she is curious, but when she finds out it is Ford, she wants him to leave her alone, but he challenges her to a kiss and she loses. Walking way though is just what she did. Going off to her cousin Marcus’s wedding to the rock star Nicola (book #2 is their romance), Ford follows her, but not for her, but for being Nicola’s friend.

Ford is bound and determine to get Mia back, so he makes a deal with her to become her best friend before they move onto anything further. The two start dating, seeing each other and teasing the heck out each other. He brings her favorite coffee, grabs pizza and a movie and buys a house with a tower. A tower that is every little girls dream to be a princess.

Slowly they do the romance dance until Mia can forgive Ford for something I didn’t mention above. She has to deal with her own demons and Ford is really patient as he is determined to win her love.

There is conflict in many forms throughout the book. Like Ford giving up touring to be home while also opening a music camp. Mia’s brothers wanting to strangle Ford for dating their little sister. Mia wanting what her parents have and learning to forgive and even befriend the man she loves.

In the end, sacrifices will have to be made and true love will have to be found. Read a wonderfully modern romance about a family who adores family. You even get to see the “old” Sullivans along the way and I foresee many more marriages in the future. If ever there was a family I would want to be part of…it would be The Sullivans.

Do you like family driven series? How many kids is too much :)? Do you ever want a series to end?

Glad the ‘new’ Sullivans are as wonderful as the old ones.

I just love the Sullivans. Each time I read one I go “oh *this* is my favorite” lol I’m still working my way through the original 8 but really glad to hear the offshoots are just as good!

I have yet to read one of Bella Andre’s books. And the more reviews I see, the more I want to just pick one of these Sullivan books up 🙂
