“There is so much to love about KISS ME LIKE THIS. With the sweet as sin romances and eloquent writing, you can`t go wrong with a Bella Andre book.” ~ Under the Covers

Bella Andre tackles the world of New Adult with this new spin off series from her Sullivans family. While you don’t have to read the Sullivans to understand this book at all, it’s nice to have because there are some cameo appearances by some of out favourite characters.

The Morrisons are just as enticing and endearing as the Sullivans. Sean Morrison is one of the six siblings and is the top college baseball player in the country. With his good looks and athletic abilities, he definitely has his way with the ladies. However, when he meets Serena, a world famous model trying her luck at a normal college life, Sean finds himself stumbling with his moves.

Serena has felt like an outcast all her life. When I realized she was a model, I worried that she would come across as ditzy or unrelatable. However, there is never a reason to worry when it comes to Bella Andre`s books. She writes such endearing characters that when they walk onto the page, it is almost impossible not to fall in love with them. Serena has been under her mother`s protective wing for her entire life. For the first time, Serena wants to follow her own dreams instead of walking in the shadows of her mother`s crushed ambitions.

When she takes a stand against her mother, Serena finds herself alone and a teen in a vulnerable state like that in college can become an easy victim to those who are looking to take advantage. One of Serena`s professors tries to attempt something, however, Sean is there to act as a personal body guard for her.

There are so many things to love about Sean. While it does come from Andre`s special mould of supernova hot heroes, Sean also has this gentle quality to him. Serena is a virgin who needs to be coaxed and unless he knows that she trusts him fully, Sean won`t do anything to hurt her. I found this so admirable and endearing about his character. Andre just weaves the most sweet romances any reader could ask for.

In addition to the wonderful romance that had me tearing up a couple of times, Andre also introduces the other siblings in the Morrisons! There are six in total, four boys and two girls. Sean is one of the twins. Maddie is fun character as well. But the stand out one for me was Drew, the rockstar. Oh my, I have a feeling I will need to have a fan with me when I read this book because there`s something about this hero that gets me excited already just thinking about it!

There is so much to love about KISS ME LIKE THIS. With the sweet as sin romances and eloquent writing, you can`t go wrong with a Bella Andre book.

Favorite Quote:

“Is this how you want me to kiss you?” Yet again he pressed his lips against hers, no tongue, no teeth, just the sweet, simply pleasure of being close to her.

Her hands had moved to his thighs by then, and he didn’t know if she realized how tightly she was gripping him, her fingers loosening every time he kissed her, then tightening when he drew back.

“I really like it,” she whispered against his lips a beat before she surprised him by saying, “but I want you to kiss me like this.”

Blogger/Reviewer at Under the Covers Book Blog
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 (http://www.anajolene.com). I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for FreshFiction.com.

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!

Drew Brees. I’m a Steelers fan and I still think Brees is one of the greatest QBs and human beings out there.

You can’t beat this: Russell Crowe in Gladiator! We do live in fiction and I certainly consider his performance athletic. And most of the swordsman on Game of Throwns! That’s cardio… me thinking about them I’m getting hot, sweaty and my heart is pumping!!!
