Review- I Only Have Eyes For You by Bella Andre


In I ONLY HAVE EYES FOR YOU, 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?

Finally I got to I Only Have Eyes For You. This is Sophie and Jake's story and the fourth book in Bella Andre's Sullivans series. I have to say I was pretty excited for this book because I always enjoy good girl bad boy romances. Add to that these two people shared so much history it made things all the more interesting.

Sophie Sullivan is one half of the youngest Sullivans. She is the "nice" twin. Sophie has always been a good girl, lost in her world of books. With a family of such over achievers she has felt a little out of place but she doesn't mind being in the back ground. If only Jake could see her as more than his best friend's little sister. I really liked Sophie. She was sweet and so in love with Jake since the beginning. But she could get a little judge mental at times which I didn't like.

Then we have Jake. Now this guy has such a messed up past. He doesn't believe in love or relationships. With a shitty child hood he is grateful for all that the Sullivans have done for him and he is not going to ruin that by sleeping with pure, sweet Sophie. I always love a hero who thinks he is undeserving of the heroine and Jake was a classic example of that.

I loved the chemistry Jake and Sophie shared. They had a bond of friendship and understanding. Though Jake didn't want to go into depth with his feelings with Sophie he couldn't help but fall for her. I am not always a fan of these kind of plots but it worked for Sophie and Jake's story because Jake needed the push or he would have never acted on his feelings.

I loved how protective the entire Sullivans clan was of Sophie. We actually get to see everyone in the book including how the couples from the previous books are doing. This series can get a bit repetitive with the sweet romance plot it has going on so I suggest reading the books spaced out, in between other reads. I really enjoyed I Only Have Eyes For You.
