Kitty’s Review – You Do Something to Me (The Sullivans #17) by Bella Andre

Amazing, wonderful, so full of love. These words don’t describe how beautiful and enchanting You Do Something To Me was. Bella Andre wrecks me every single time and I’m not surprised that she brought me to my knees again. ~ Kitty, Guilty Pleasures 

Alec Sullivan has always believed he has it all. A billion-dollar private aviation business. A penthouse apartment in New York City. Beautiful women who know better than to expect him ever to fall in love. And great siblings for whom he’d do anything. But when Alec’s business partner passes away and leaves everything to a daughter Alec never knew about, in an instant everything in his life turns upside down…all because of Cordelia.

Cordelia always thought she was perfectly happy with her life. She owns a garden store she loves, lives in a pretty little cottage in the same town as her adoptive parents, and figures there’s plenty of time to meet Mr. Right. But she never counted on becoming the surprise heir to a fortune…or on meeting a man like Alec Sullivan. A shockingly sexy billionaire who makes her heart race and melt all at the same time.

Neither Alec nor Cordelia plans on getting any closer than they have to. Only, how can either of them fight this kind of heat, this depth of desire? And when Cordelia needs Alec’s support, it’s pure instinct for him to be there for her. But when it’s her turn to help him confront his deepest pain, will Alec let her in? Or will he push her away, just as he’s pushed away everyone who’s loved him for the past thirty years…

YOU DO SOMETHING TO ME is part of Bella Andre’s New York Times and USA Today #1 bestselling series about The Sullivans. While it can easily be read as a stand-alone story, you’ll likely enjoy reading the other books, too.

“Not since Nora Roberts has anyone been able to write a big family romance series with every book as good as the last. Bella Andre never disappoints.” Revolving Bookcase Reviews

“The New York Sullivans are every bit as fantastic as their cousins.” Deanna on Goodreads

Amazing, wonderful, so full of love. These words don’t describe how beautiful and enchanting You Do Something To Me was. Bella Andre really kicked it up a notch with Alec and Cordelia’s story. I didn’t think my heart could get any fuller watching these two people fall in love.

Alec was the ultimate knight in shining armor throughout this story even though he did try to come off as the bad boy. He didn’t believe in love or happily-ever-after’s, his mom and dad were proof that love could not conquer everything. He grew up taking care of everyone around him, knew that he was a cynic when it came to love, and never let anyone get close enough to see the hurt and scars that he has carried for 30 years. But, a tragedy brings the most amazing woman into his life and now he finds himself second-guessing all the decisions he has made in his personal life.

Cordelia sees right through the image that Alec projects. She sees his inner-light, how much he does care for everyone around him. He’s her saving grace and was there for her at her darkest time. He pulled her through and, in the process, pulled her under as well. She couldn’t help but fall in love with someone so generous and giving but, she’ll never try to change who he is or how he thinks. He’s accepted her for who she and she’ll accept him in any way. Friends, lovers but never partners.

When Alec finally starts to open his eyes, and realizes the opportunities that he’s missing because of his stubbornness, it’s almost too late. When all the Sullivan’s rally round, he can’t help but finally accept that Cordelia really did something to him … showed him how to open his mind, his heart – offer forgiveness and let go of the past.

I cried, I honestly cried happy tears during the epilogue. I was so touched and moved by the words Bella Andre put on paper that I felt like my heart was bursting with happiness. Bella Andre wrecks me every single time and I’m not surprised that she brought me to my knees again. She’s articulate, she’s fluid, she can write a romance like not many authors can. I have praised her writing since the day I picked up her first book and I have a feeling that I won’t stop. Kudos to Bella Andre for bringing another Sullivan a happily-ever-after, for keeping this series alive with fresh, new stories and for just being the amazing author that she is.
