Kitty s review posted at Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews Ok, as I started this book, I was like OMG, is this going to be the first Bella Andre book that I don t absolutely love I wasn t sure where she was taking us with a Reality TV Star and an artist so I was a little skeptical Then, I really got into the meat of the story and was like OMG, I guess I should have known better than to think that Drake Sullivan is definitely living up to the Sullivan name, even though he is just a cousin He s handsome, loving, caring, talented and knows how to fall head over heels in love at first sight Something all of the Sullivan s seem to have in common His only drawback is that he was sometimes a little bit too protective and caring of Rosa There were times that I really wanted to shake him, tell him to lose his cool and rant and rave But, if he did, he wouldn t have been able to accomplish getting Rosa to trust and love him, let him paint her and believe in herself.It also took me a little time to warm up to Rosa I honestly wasn t sure how she was going to turn everything around I wanted her to stand up for herself and not wallow in self pity It actually took Smith stepping in, Drake confronting his father and the support of a small community to get her to see exactly what she was made of and realize that not everyone is going to criticize her for her choice in becoming a Reality TV Star It took her a while to understand that she could have a life other than letting TV cameras follow her around And, she had a talent that she didn t see as anything other than a hobby that could probably change her whole life and let her love, openly, Drake.Montauk and the Adirondacks two beautiful and amazing places Yes, I have been to both and they were described so perfectly by Ms Andre It s wonderful to have her on the East Coast and writing about some of my favorite places which hold so many memories for me She brought both to life and made us feel like we were walking along the rocky coast of the Atlantic Ocean and through the beautiful mountains of New York When she wrote about San Francisco, I could hear the trolley s now I could feel the ocean breeze and hear the birds singing in the forest.The first book of a series, to me, is meant to set up the rest of the characters and get us ready to welcome them into our lives Bella Andre has a knack of doing just that Her supporting characters are just as interesting and compelling as her main ones are Even though this is actually a continuation of the Sullivan s, it is still the start of a new family of Sullivan s She has us wondering just where everyone is going to take their journey It looks as if Suzanne is the next Sullivan to fall in love It will be interesting to see how she is going to pull her from her computers Harry is definitely going to be a big challenge for Ms Andre and I have no idea what she is going to do or where she will take us with Alec, his anger and his infamy But, what really intrigued me was the little whisper in our ears that she just may bring William and Isobel together But, what we can always count on is Ms Andre giving us nothing but pure love between two people who are honestly meant to be together to give us characters that sizzle both in and out of the bedroom and a happy ending that will always bring a smile to our faces.So sit back and enjoy the New York Sullivan s They look to be an interesting and fun family that is just starting to overcome their problems and have a long road ahead of them I have no doubt that, as usual, Bella Andre will make it an interesting and fun journey for all of us.Review copy provided for an honest review. Drake is an artist in a cabin which seems to be situated in the middle of nowhere One day he sees a woman on his cliffs, he is immediately concerned that she could be hurt physically so he goes out to see her but he realises that she s hurt emotionally She s been affected by recent events in her life and he can see that she is troubled The one thing that I love about Drake is that regardless of the fact that its cold and raining, he goes out with the sole intention of making sure this woman who he has never met before is okay and well Rosa has insecurities and has been badly hurt by her mother although her mother thinks what she is doing is perfectly acceptable Rosa is cynical throughout this book and believes that her attempts to hide out will be revealed by the people in the small town that she has ended up in My heart goes out to her because she s in this headspace where she feels like Drake is against her but actually Drake s artistic inspiration has awoken since he saw her on the cliffs.Drake uses the inspiration to paint, and to discover himself again Rosa helps him but Drake also helps her to realise that she is worth than she thinks She has so much beauty inside and out but she doesn t see herself in the way that Drake does and when she realises that Drake does see herself that way, she almost in a way starts to panic because she is now exposed and open I love that she and Drake met and was the beacon of light for each other It is so apt and its pure Bella Andre genius Every time I read a Bella Andre novel, I smile because there is this infinite feel of family and community It has so many feels and you just wish that the Sullivan s were a real and true family I have loved every single Sullivan book to date Drake s book is no different I could read any of her books for hours and hours on end and not get bored She has this amazing way of evoking all the motion from you and you can t help but fall in love with each and every single word of hers.If you re a newbie to Bella Andre, you can read this one as each book is a standalone but if you want to fall in love with the Sullivan s, start from the beginning with The Look Of Love I love each and every one for different reasons I totally recommend this 5 stars 2.5 stars I wanted to like this than I did, but Rosa is constantly like I m trash, you deserve better, I won t drag you down with me, blah blah blah and I just couldn t fucking stand it She was a terribly weak person most of the time and I found myself thinking Yeah, Drake does deserve better like somebody with a god damn backbone I almost DNF d it a few times, but I really wanted to see what happened with the paintings Lo and behold, nothing happens sigh Loved Drake and Rosa s story Drakes s love and patience for Rosa and showing her what love can be makes the reader fall in love with both of them Looking forward to Suzy s story. FantasticFantastic start to the New York Sullivan s and after reading Drake and Rosa s story I can t wait for Recommended read. If you follow my blog, then it s no surprise to you that I love Bella Andre s Sullivan series Earlier in the year I caught up on all of the Sullivan books there are a lot of them and I was really excited to read the first in the New York Sullivan series, Now That I ve Found You However, I love listening to Bella Andre s book on audio I love the narrator, Eva Kaminsky and I had to wait an extra 4 months from the ebook release until the audio was released Luckily, it was worth it, as I loved Now That I ve Found You.The first in the New York Sullivan series, Now That I ve Found You focuses on famous artist Drake Sullivan Drake has been in a bit of an artist s block, and he hasn t been inspired to create anything in way too long So he s taking some personal time, where he first sees a very upset woman walking on his property And suddenly Drake s block is over and Drake just has to paint her This woman is Rosa, who has just had a horrible thing happen to her She s struggling dealing with it, and she runs into Drake.Drake and Rose were both characters that were so easy to root for, although I will also say that they aren t quite as memorable as other Bella Andre characters Drake was such a nice guy, and I ve been all about the nice guy heroes these days He s respectful and caring and kind, especially when it comes to Rosa, and he just made my heart swoon.Rosa was a wonderful woman, too, and my heart went out to her She s a reality TV star from an extremely popular show about her and her family She s gorgeous, and a very popular person on the show When nude photos taken without her permission show up in the media, she s heartbroken So goes to hide out, and finds herself in Montauk, where she meets Drake As with Drake, I just fell in love with Rosa I felt so bad for her, and I wanted to go give her a giant hug and a place to hide out But, luckily, Drake was there for her Rosa has some major insecurities that she struggles with, but Drake is there to help her.As is common in Bella Andre s books, Drake and Rosa fall for each other really quickly There is something with the way Bella Andre writes, though, because I always completely believe it I believe that they are just meant to be together Although, I will say that while I desperately wanted Drake and Rosa to be together, their connection wasn t as strong as other couples from the Sullivan series As I mentioned above, Now That I ve Found You isn t my favorite Sullivan novel, but I still loved it I can t wait for the next one This review was originally posted on Quinn s Book Nook
