Millions of readers have fallen in love with the San Francisco and Seattle Sullivans. Now get ready to fall head over heels for the New York Sullivans!
World-renowned artist Drake Sullivan doesn't paint women. Ever. Not when he knows all too well just how destructive painter/muse relationships can be. But on the day Rosa Bouchard walks onto the cliffs outside his Montauk cottage, Drake is so captivated that he can't stop himself from bringing her to life on canvas.
Shocked and horrified by the nude photos of her that have just hit the Internet, reality TV star Rosa's every instinct is to run from her Miami home and hide. After driving all night, she ends up in Montauk, New York, where she doesn't know a soul and plans to lie low until she can figure out how to deal with the media firestorm--and her own mother, who seems all too happy to sell out Rosa's happiness for more fame, more fans, and more money. The very last thing Rosa expects is to find, and to fall for, a sinfully sexy man like Drake Sullivan.
Drake has never felt this way about anything he's painted...and he's definitely never felt this way about a woman. When they kiss, everything but sweet, breathless desire melts away. But can he convince Rosa to trust--and to love--again after such a devastating betrayal?

I've been a fan of Bella Andre and her Sullivan's series for a while, so I was looking forward to reading this one too and Ms. Andre didn't disappoint.
In this installment, we leave the West Coast and head to New York to meet the cousins based there. Artist Drake is dealing with painter's block when a mysterious woman appears in his back yard. Rosa is dealing with her own issues when she stumbles into Drake's world and the sparks between the two fly. The story that follows is sweet and sexy.
One of the hallmarks of a Sullivan story is the instant connection between two people and that is definitely the case between Drake and Rosa. The slice of time we get to spend with them is short, just a little over a week. But, that time is enough to see the gentleness and dedication of Drake and the hidden strength within Rosa. These are definitely two people I would like to spend more time with.
We also got to meet Drake's family, 2 brothers and a sister, so I am looking forward to seeing their stories soon.
