I love the Sullivan's and Bella Andre always delivers a wonderful and emotional romance, with the right amount of heat and family. 'You Do Something to Me' is a standalone story but highly recommend the series if you haven't started on the Bella Andre journey yet.
Alec is a great leading man - he doesn't believe in love, he has thrown himself into his business and is distant. However in 'You Do Something to Me' we see a completely different side to this beautiful and complex man. The book opens with Gordon, his best friend and business partner who has been like a father to him passing away unexpectedly. Gordon however has left a surprise - a daughter.
Enter Cordelia, the daughter that nobody knew about. She was adopted when she was very young and Gordon kept her a secret up until his death when his half of the company is left to her. Wanting to buy Cordelia out, their first meeting doesn't go anything like how Alec expected as he assumed it would be an easy transaction but he is immediately drawn to the beautiful woman who is his complete opposite. 'From the window, he’d thought she was merely pretty. But now he knew that had been a dire miscalculation. Because the undeniable truth was that she looked like a breath of fresh air on a perfect blue-sky day.' Aahhhh SIGH...
Cordelia is independent and strong & she and Alec are perfectly matched... So begins a beautiful and sexy love story. Another 5 Stars...
If you love to read Happily-Ever-After’s then this book is one you should read.
In this book we get to meet Alec Sullivan, he is the oldest brother of the New York Sullivans. Alec grew up quick when he was a child as Alec's mum committed suicide when he was only 5, his dad was unable to cope with losing his wife. Alec took on the role of caring for his brothers and sister.
Alec now runs a private aviation business. Alec’s business partner dies and he leaves his share of the business to his daughter Cordelia who no one ever knew about. Both their lives are turned upside down. Cordelia does not want to be part of the business she is happy running her own Garden store and living in her cottage. She wants Alec to buy her out of the business. Their first meeting does not go to plan.
Alec and Cordelia are complete opposites but this is what makes this story so wonderful. Their grief is what brings them together. Alec can’t help himself but he can help Cordelia deal with her grief. Cordelia then sees there more to Alec then anyone has ever really seen.
Will Alec finally let someone into his heart? Or will he keep it locked up like he has for the past thirty years?
Bella Andre has written another page turner book that you won’t to put down. This book will have you feeling lots of emotions while reading it. You will laugh and you will cry, but in the end, you will enjoy it all. I really enjoy books that bring out emotions in its readers, they are the books that make you feel part of the story.
I would recommend this book to all those that love their Happily-Ever-After.
The Sullivan series is a great series to read and if you have not started reading them yet then you don’t know what you are missing. This book and all books in the Sullivan series can be read as standalones or if you want to know all, then you need to start at the beginning. This book is the 17th in the Sullivans series and it is the 3rd book in the New York Sullivans.
I am voluntarily reviewing an advanced reader copy of this book, You Do Something To Me by Bella Andre.
Getting a Bella Andre ARC is like Christmas, payday, your birthday and your anniversary all rolled into one. Yeah, that great!!!
You Do Something To Me is definitely one of Bella’s best ever written books. Alec just lost his business partner and if that isn’t bad enough, he is thrown for a major loop when he learns that Gordon had a daughter no one knew about and he left everything to her. Cordelia is shocked to learn that her birth father, that she knew nothing about, left her everything in his will. They each have a lot they are dealing with but just maybe they can get through it together.
Wow, Another Sullivan ticks all the right boxes. I'm not sure how Bella Andre manages to continually create such heartwarmingly beautiful stories. I'm hoping their Garden Centre/Restaurant will appear in future books as it sounds perfect. Alec and Cordelia won my heart and I confess, I cried when Alec was with his Dad in the hospital. A fantastic way to escape the housework for a few hours of bliss.
Wow another wonderful Sullivan story. This one about Alec Sullivan billionaire business man with a fabulous life style, money women, travel romance everything a single man needs. When his friend and partner suddenly dies and leaves everything he has to his daughter nobody knew about things change. Alec wants to buy her out
Cordelia Langley never knew she was Gordon's daughter having been brought up by 2 loving parents and does not want his money or his half of the business. She has her own small thriving nursery business which is all she wants. Alec and Cordelia meet up the discuss her inheritance Alec is not interested in a happy ever after after a bad experience growing up with his father and Cordelia wants it all husband family etc This beautiful romance is their story and I guarantee you will not be able to put it down until the last word. I also highly recommend you read the other Sullivan books
