 Bella Andre thrills and excites with the latest in the Sullivans series. JUST TO BE WITH YOU breathes life back into a detached soul. When you read this, you’ll see why Ian has become one of my favourite heroes of the series! ~ Under the Covers

Ian Sullivan, the eldest of the Seattle Sullivans has always been married to his job. As a CEO of Sullivan Investments, there is little time for dating or even rest. Much of his life involves endless meetings and business contracts. But when Tatiana Landon always manages to capture the attention of the vigilant and constant workaholic, Ian wonders if he will be making another mistake and ruining another beautiful woman with his habits.

For Tatiana Landon, meeting Ian Sullivan was like an epiphany. She knew she belonged with him. However, with work taking up most of Ian’s life, she finds a way to weasel her way in while not disrupting what means so much to him. As the next upcoming and coming actress for a unique role, Tatiana wishes to shadow Ian at his work to watch what he does so well for her own role in a movie. At first, Ian is reluctant as he doesn’t need a distraction. But Ian is finding it difficult to say no to the woman who has always been a gem to him.

First off, I have to mention Bella Andre’s writing in this book. Simply put, it’s flawless. It’s amazing how deep and emotional Andre can write her character’s POV without bogging down the story. She is so readily able to convey emotion without really trying. Even though Ian tries his best to remain cold and detached, you don’t have him for it. Inside there’s this passion that burns bright for Tatiana and though he hides it, whenever you read the story from his POV, it shines and comes through so well because of the way Andre writes it.

Similarly, Tatiana’s frustrations are greatly explored. I won’t lie and say that Ian is the perfect man, but he is the perfect man for Tatiana. Ian makes his mistakes in this book and it cuts Tatiana deep, but it only makes for a more entertaining and heartwarming read as you root for these two characters who share the same feelings, but aren’t willing to admit it just yet.

Naturally, family is a huge part of this series. Mia Sullivan is back in action in this one and readers also get a chance to read more about Dylan, the youngest brother of the Seattle Sullivan siblings. I absolutely cannot wait to read more about this sexy sailor! In addition to that, there’s also a quick announcement about a new New Adult series Bella will be tackling after this series wraps up. I’m so excited about the Morrisons!

What can I say, I’m a sucker for heroes when they are brought down to their knees by their heroines. Bella Andre thrills and excites with the latest in the Sullivans series. JUST TO BE WITH YOU breathes life back into a detached soul. When you read this, you’ll see why Ian has become one of my favourite heroes of the series!

I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene ( I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
