I Only Have Eyes for You by Bella Andre

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 can he possibly resist?


I Only Have Eyes for You is the fourth book in Bella Andre’s Sullivans series and such an awesome story! It’s my first taste of this author’s writing, but it most certainly will not be my last.
Sophie Sullivan has been in love with Jake McCann since she first laid eyes on him when she was just five years old. She knows that Jake has always seen her as the “nice” girl who’s simply too good for him and his bad boy ways, but Sophie’s decided to pull out all the stops and make him see the real her.

Jake knows that Sophie’s been crushing on him forever, but he does all he can to keep her at arms distance. It’s not that he’s not attracted to her – because he is – the real problem is that he has a humiliating secret and he’s not about to let Sophie find out what it is.

When Sophie sets in motion a plan to force Jake to see her as the woman she is, Jake doesn't know what hit him - but quits trying to resist - and that made for one of the best stories I've read in a very long time.
I can’t even begin to express how excited I am to have found a new contemporary romance author who knows how to bring characters to life in a world that I’d love to live in! Jake’s insecurity and vulnerability had me in tears, and I wanted to bring him home and love him until he could see what an amazing, worthy man he is. And Sophie’s loving, compassionate nature had me cheering for her as she fought for the happily ever after she knew they deserved.

The bottom line: If you’re looking for a very romantic, very sexy story – a friends to lovers tale – then look no further! From the first page to the last, Ms. Andre delivered a deeply heartwarming, sometimes heartbreaking tale that had me laughing one moment, crying the next, and fanning myself often. I can’t wait to get back to San Francisco and spend more time with the Sullivans.
