I Only Have Eyes For You

I Only Have Eyes For You is the 4th book in The Sullivans series by Bella Andre. From the author’s website.~

Sophie Sullivan, a librarian in San Francisco, was five years old when she fell head over heels in love with Jake McCann. Twenty years later, she’s convinced the notorious bad boy still sees her as the “nice” Sullivan twin. That is, when he bothers to look at her at all. But when they both get caught up in the magic of the first Sullivan wedding, she knows it’s long past time to do whatever it takes to make him see her for who she truly is…the woman who will love him forever.

Jake has always been a magnet for women, especially since his Irish pubs made him extremely wealthy. But the only woman he really wants is the one he can never have. Not only is Sophie his best friend’s off-limits younger sister…he can’t risk letting her get close enough to discover his deeply hidden secret.

Only, when Sophie appears on his doorstep as Jake’s every fantasy come to life-smart, beautiful, and shockingly sexy-he doesn’t have a prayer of taking his eyes, or his hands, off her. And he can’t stop craving more of her sweet smiles and sinful kisses. Because even though Jake knows loving Sophie isn’t the right thing to do…how can he possibly resist?

I found Bella Andre’s books thanks to many of my friends on twitter. I love her books and was so excited when I saw Sophie’s story was released. I love the entire Sullivan clan, but there was just something about Sophie that spoke to me. Maybe it’s our mutual love of books, but I wanted her story from the moment I first met her. I didn’t love Jake when he first appeared, but only because he was a bit rude at first. However, as soon as I saw how much he really cared for and wanted Sophie, I loved him just as much as the Sullivan men.

Sophie has loved Jake pretty much her entire life. She is tired of everyone looking at her as the “nice” twin in the family and takes steps to ensure her family, and especially Jake see her as more. When she shows up on Jake’s doorstep after to wedding set on seduction, Jake really does try to fight his attraction to her. It doesn’t work, but he does try to keep his hands to himself. Sophie and Jake are like two puzzle pieces finding their match when they are together. The heat was off the charts and I was concerned my kindle might melt a couple of times.

Sophie and Jake end up in a situation where they must figure out how to solve things together. Sophie shows the strength that has always been in her when she stands up for herself about what she wants in life. Jake shows how strong he is when he shares his secret with Sophie and when he stands up to her overprotective brothers.

I Only Have Eyes For You is another winner in the Sullivan clan series. I laughed and cried as I read this story and the steaminess level was perfect. I had said to many of my friends Gabe & Megan’s story was my favorite of the bunch, but Sophie and Jake took the top spot away from them. Love spending time with this family and can’t wait for Zach’s book, If You Were Mine to come out this summer.
