Sullivan fans met Christie Hayden at Summer Lake in "Now That I've Found You", “Since I Fell For You” and “The Best Is Yet To Come”. Now get ready for Christie’s beautiful love story in CAN’T TAKE MY EYES OFF OF YOU. 
BOOK DESCRIPTION: Christie Hayden escaped to Summer Lake to heal from heartbreak, but found so much more than that: a job she loves as an innkeeper, a close-knit community of friends, and a chance at the perfect romantic future she’s always longed for. But nothing is as it seems, especially when it comes to Liam Kane, the gorgeous millionaire who sweeps into her life from out of the blue…and instantly turns it—and her heart—upside down.

The first time Liam Kane lays eyes on Christie, he’s a total goner. He knows he should keep his distance, because he’s not capable of giving her the happily-ever-after she’s looking for. But when it comes to her smiles, her laughter, her kindness—and her sweetly sinful kisses—for the first time in his life, he can’t hang on to his self-control. Not when the love she offers him is everything he never thought he could have, but now craves with every fiber of his being.

But Liam has been keeping a secret for twenty years, one that nearly destroyed him—one that has the potential to tear his whole family apart too. When Christie can’t stop herself from trying to help out of pure love, will Liam be able to let himself heal? Or will they both end up broken, leaving her to pick up the pieces all over again?

NOTE FOR READERS: “Can’t Take My Eyes Off Of You” was previously published as “With This Kiss” under a pen name. This new edition has been extensively revised and rewritten.

Liza's Review:

I fell in love with Summer Lake when we first visited there with the Sullivans. I loved so many of the residents and was excited to see they would get their very own stories in a spin-off series. Christie Hayden was one of those characters I really wanted to know more about and I'm so glad to get her story in Can't Take My Eyes Off Of You.

When we first met Christie, she had been engaged to her best friend Wesley Kane, but they have since called off the wedding and the next day Wesley disappeared to leave Christie to handle the inn and his family. He also make Christie promise not to share the real reason for them ending their engagement. I love that Christie is such a great friend to everyone she meets. Christie is such a strong person who is truly only loving to find her true love and happiness.

Enter Wesley's older brother Liam, who has sold his business, is only back in Summer Lake because he was coming home for Christie and Wesley's wedding. As he has been traveling out of the country he never received the letter Wesley sent him about the cancellation of the wedding. As Liam has a very stressful relationship with his parents, he tends to stay away from Summer Lake. However, once he meets Christie, there is no way he can leave, even if it means being around his parents again.

I loved seeing Liam change the more time his spent around Christie. She does as well, as Liam challenges Christie to face her fears along the way, but Liam finally seems to find the means to forgive his mom thanks to Christie. Liam and Christie had amazing chemistry and yet there was also a sweetness about them that totally made me sign when I thought of them as a couple. Yes mistakes between them are made, but they each went big in the end to show how much they loved one another.

Can't Take My Eyes Off Of You was another winner from Bella Andre. Once again Ms. Andre made me fall in love with the setting as well as the couple in the center of the story. I loved that Christie and Liam's romance was front and center, yet the entire Kane family was also the focus as we learned about three generations in Summer Lake. Can't Take My Eyes Off Of You gave me all the feels and I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves contemporary romance.

Rating: 5 stars (A-)
