Review: From This Moment On by Bella Andre

Book Reviews

4 Stars

I think Bella Andre did a fantastic job at really turning Marcus’s life upside down when she gave him Nicola. Nicola wasn’t someone I’d picture Marcus ending up with, that’s for sure. But I liked that we got such an unexpected pair in this book.

The romance starts up pretty quickly between these two, but right off the bat, Marcus is trying to push her away most of the time. But after a while, they find this amazing symmetry and their romance starts to become something meaningful and amazing… Until it’s not. :( Because something always happens. The tables turn on these two and Marcus shows a side of himself no one in his family has ever experienced. Poor Marcus. He does eventually get himself together (duh!) and pulls off one of the most expensive grand gestures I’ve read. But it works and it made me smile every time. So I loved it. :D

We do get to see Chase and Chloe in this book, the couple from the first book, and we also get a lot more of the rest of the Sullivans, especially Lori. But in the end, Gabe is featured in a sort of cliffhanger ending. That was different for a contemporary romance. Kind of liked it though! Made me want to pick up the next one right away.

Bella Andre’s writing is really easy to enjoy and fall into. You’re immediately drawn into these character’s lives and the emotions, while they might surface rapidly and strongly, are always genuine. My feelings are definitely very invested in this family’s happiness now, and I can’t wait to read more and more about them.

Just one night…

Marcus Sullivan has always been the responsible older brother, stepping in to take care of his seven siblings when their father died. But when the perfectly ordered future he’s planned turns out to be a lie, Marcus needs one reckless night to shake free from it all.

Known throughout the world by only one name—Nico—pop songstress Nicola Harding is seen as the ultimate sex kitten. But it’s all a lie. After a terrible betrayal she refuses to let anyone else close enough to find out who she really is…or to hurt her again. Especially the gorgeous stranger at the bar.

One night is all Nicola and Marcus agree to share with each other. But instead, a deeper connection than either of them could have anticipated begins….

    A good romance, a relationship that has humor (a fun banter going back & forth between the characters) and both sides caring about each other.

    I like to see a growing connection & communication with the couple and an HEA

    I’ve been curious about Bella Andre. Her books look like something I would like, but I’m never sure. I don’t read a ton of adult contemporary romance anymore, but I used to love them. So every once in awhile I want to pick up one again. I’ll have to check out this series.

    YES, another romance series I think I’ll love! I like to see strong male and female MCs that hold their own but still complement each other. Thanks for the giveaway :)

    I look for believable conflict and growth in a relationship. Bonus points to any author who can make me empathize with a character I wouldn’t normally like.

    I love to see the chemistry between the H/H and if they knew each other in the past, then to read some of those moments and how it builds up to their current relationship.

    I LOVE the contemporary romances with swoons and sometimes steams, but I love great characters with a good story. Sometimes I don’t mind it if it is cheesy, but not too cheesy. TELL ME A STORY, ROMANCE WRITER PEOPLE, that’s what I want. And lots of kissing. Bella Andre isn’t afraid of the kissing.

    I saw these in Target the other weekend and the price was SO good I wanted to buy one. I’m traveling in a few weeks (Austin!) so maybe I’ll buy one and let you know what I think? I’m always looking for another romance series to read because I’m geekily interested in how these authors manage to keep them fresh! Great review! I am intrigued.

    I do love this series and this was the best book. Nicola was definitely a surprise but she fit perfectly in the family and they needed to lighten up Marcus for sure. Loved your review.
