I simply adore Bella Andre and pre-buy all of her books so was delighted when this appeared in my Kindle Library as I bought it so long ago I'd forgotten it was coming. The Summer Lake series is fast becoming a favourite. I particularly loved Liam and Christie's story and their were sweet side story's happening as well which really rounded this read off for me. As always the writing was flawless and just such a pleasure to read as Bella manages to write wonderful love stories that have enough passion and beauty but aren't cheesy.
Christie's fiancé called off the wedding 3 weeks before they were to be married. She has to deal with the fall out as he has literally disappeared and on top of that the weekend that was supposed to be her wedding, she finds herself helping her dear friend with her wedding instead. She's an emotional mess but trying to keep a brave face.
Liam has returned to Summer Lake for his brother's wedding only to learn his brother called it off and disappeared, 3 weeks prior. When he gets to the location of what is supposed to be his brother's nuptials, he notices a gorgeous woman crying. He learns that this is Christie, his brother ex-fiancé. While they are both attracted to one another they don't act on it.
They end up spending a lot of time together as they are running Liam and his brother's Inn. While Christie comes clean about the way she feels, Liam has a jaded view on love and takes a while to face his fears. The development of the connection between Liam and Christie is just lovely, and I enjoyed seeing these two find their way to their own HEA. I would love to escape to Summer Lake - it sounds like a special place. CAN'T TAKE MY EYES OFF OF YOU is another 5 star read from Bella Andre. She really knows how to do romance like no one else.
I was absolutely thrilled to receive the second amazing book from the most wonderful series, Summer Lake. Written by my most loved author, Bella Andre. I was just so excited to enjoy another one of her most tremendously adored romantic tales. One that I just thoroughly enjoy so much more!
As Sarah Barstow stood in her wedding gown, with her closest bestie, Christie Hayden. She was so happy smiling as she looked just so wonderfully beautiful. She was clearly so happy for her indeed. As they looked out the window seeing the beautiful surroundings outside.
Sarah was clearly so excited with planning this very special wedding day on the grounds of Summer Lake for this purely blessed day. This wonderful marriage to Calvin Vaughn was going to be party no one will ever forget. When these two women returned here to Summer Lake things will never be the same. They both will be a strong worthy family business now.
Sarah wishes for her good friend for encouragement about her past romances. She hopes the best for Christie, now and she realises what she is missing for her future life's happiness!!
I absolutely loved this most beautiful book. So elegantly romantic. I thoroughly enjoyed the marvellous and exciting classic tale. Loved all the characters so dearly. Such an unbelievable book!!
CAN'T TAKE MY EYES OFF OF YOU. by Bella Andre. Summer Lake # 2 A New York Sullivan Spinoff. Christie her smile, her laughter, was all, and more than Liam wanted, but his secrets kept him from getting. Having taken a red eye from China to make his brother's wedding, which didn't happen. Wesley left letters, and Christie to run the Inn, a letter Liam never got. Christie was a vision to look at, there was something she wasn't saying. Liam made Christie nervous, butterflies in stomach. To find that both brothers owned the Inn, a place she had come to, to heal and fell in love with the place. The Inn a magical place for weddings, keep.Christie busy. Would there be one for her, or would the secrets that others had, keep Love away. A good story for all to enjoy, and we always love hearing more about this family. Given ARC for my voluntary review and my honest opinion.
I am voluntarily reviewing an advanced reader copy of this book, Can't Take My Eyes Off Of You by Bella Andre.
It is always a very special treat to have a new Bella Andre book to read. She has been one of my all time favorites since the first book of hers I read. This book is very aptly named, as I could not take my eyes off of it till the last word on the last page, at 4:15am. Definitely worth missing sleep over. I love the Sullivan family like they are part of my own. Every one of their books is near and dear to my heart but Can't Take My Eyes Off Of You has touched my heart and soul like no other. I feel emotionally wrung dry after reading it, but would I ever read it again? HECK YEAH!!!
Christie is having a very difficult time holding herself together and keeping a brave face. Her fiancé ran off and left her to deal with the fallout, 3 weeks before they were to be married. The weekend that was supposed to be her wedding, finds her helping her dear friend with her's instead. Liam has returned to Summer Lake for his brother's wedding only to learn his brother called it off and disappeared, 3 weeks prior. When he gets to the location of what is supposed to be his brother's nuptials, he spy's a beautiful goddess with tears running down her face. He quickly learns that this is Christie, the woman his brother was planning to marry. Both are profoundly attracted to one another but fight their feelings as they know people would disapprove since Christie had just come out of a serious relationship with Liam's brother. As they spend time together running Liam and his brother's Inn, they develop feelings that go way beyond attraction. While Christie is open to these feelings, Liam is not. Thanks to a haunting, life altering incident from his childhood, Liam doesn't believe in everlasting love and refuses to allow himself to feel love for anyone, especially women. Can Christie possibly love Liam enough to melt the wall around Liam's heart?

Five Star all the way. I didn't think Bella Andre could improve on her books but this one covered an array of issues that have affected so many families, creating heartache and and long term relationship problems. I love the way these issues have been handled while still spinning a wonderful romantic tale. Liam and Christie are very engaging characters but I soon developed a soft spot for Grandma Jean and also for Wesley and what he was going through. Love it Bella Andre!
