When he dies, everything is passed onto Cordelia, who is someone that Alec had no idea existed. So when their paths crash, its met with some mixed emotions. This book was a bit of a surprise for me. While I could understand where she was coming from, she still came across as cold to me.

I did enjoy the easy way in which Andre writes. It makes for a very quick read. Subscribe to our blog by email!

This story was such a nice surprise. I've been a Sullivans fan for a while hello, this is book 17 I'm reading but the New York branch hadn't enthralled me like the San Francisco my favourite or the Seattle branch did; that's why I'd added the book when it was released in but hadn't felt too interested in reading it until now and boy, am I glad I finally read it. Alec Sullivan is the oldest of the New York Sullivans, and the most pessimistic and cynic when it comes to love.

All of a sudd This story was such a nice surprise. All of a sudden he meets Cordelia and yes, he feels gobsmacked by attraction and love, and oh wow, hope and dreams? And so It was funny and lovely seeing Alec shedding his walls to let Cordelia in. Bless you, Bella Andre. And of course, it was incredible seeing a bit of my favourite San Francisco Sullivans in the book. Double bless you, Bella Andre. You Do Something to Me indeed did something to me.

I'm filled with gooey feelings and corny smiles. Bella Andre once again delivered a great love story. Oct 03, Blender rated it it was amazing. A brilliant love story!!! This book is so sweet and tender that it will make you fall in love with Alec and Cordelia!

If any two people deserved forever, it is them. Alec was sigh worthy, but I expected no less from a Sullivan. Together they were perfect. ARC provided in exchange for honest review. Oct 15, Stacie Marquart rated it it was amazing. I love this series. Can't go wrong with one of Bella Andre books. Loved it. Oct 11, Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews rated it it was amazing Shelves: guiltypleasures-kittyangel. Amazing, wonderful, so full of love. Alec was the ultimate knight in shining armor throughout this story even though he did try to come off as the bad boy.

He grew up taking care of everyone around him, knew that he was a cynic when it came to love, and never let anyone get close enough to see the hurt and scars that he has carried for 30 years. But, a tragedy brings the most amazing woman into his life and now he finds himself second-guessing all the decisions he has made in his personal life. Cordelia sees right through the image that Alec projects.

She sees his inner-light, how much he does care for everyone around him. He pulled her through and, in the process, pulled her under as well. Friends, lovers but never partners. I cried, I honestly cried happy tears during the epilogue. I was so touched and moved by the words Bella Andre put on paper that I felt like my heart was bursting with happiness.

Kudos to Bella Andre for bringing another Sullivan a happily-ever-after, for keeping this series alive with fresh, new stories and for just being the amazing author that she is. Dec 31, Tpagirl rated it really liked it Shelves: waiting-to-announce-next-in-series , pages , genre-erotic. Alec Sullivan was the oldest of his siblings. His mother took her life when he was a child and he took over the care for his younger siblings when his dad fell apart and no longer could function as a parent.

He had kept himself guarded and protected from love, relationships and reliance on anyone. He ran a successful billion dollar business and was loyal to his sibl You Do Something To Me by Bella Andre was the third book in the New York Sullivan series and the seventeenth in the Sullivan series. He ran a successful billion dollar business and was loyal to his siblings. He was happy and content with his life. She was adopted as a baby, had never known her birth parents, was a successful botanist and business owner.

She was happiest when she was gardening. Alec and Cordelia met when Gordon Whitley died unexpectedly from a heart attack and left his portion of the business with all of his assets solely to his daughter, Cordelia. They were attracted from the onset but were conflicted with the circumstances so held each other at Bay and became friends instead, well friends with an occasional benefit.

It was an intriguing journey of exploration and reflection leading ultimately to hope and forgiveness. True to form, it was well written and well developed. You Do Something To Me was a sweet story. It was low on angst but high on awareness and forgiveness. Oct 30, Terri Hebert rated it it was amazing.

The Sullivan series is a truly magnificent work of art. I love every single book in this long series. I have read all of them and I just can't pick a favorite. Every one is a five star read. Bella Andre knows what her readers wants and she gives it in spades. Honestly can't wait for the next one View all 3 comments. Oct 23, Jan Kaplan rated it it was amazing. Bella Andre is an amazingly gifted writer who has created an incredible series, The Sullivans.

Unbeknownst to him, Gordon Whitely had a daughter he put up for adoption to a couple he knew would be perfect parents for her. Arranging a meeting with their attorneys to discuss the situation, Alec is unprepared for his feelings upon meeting Cordelia. Uncharacteristically, he wants to know her better before offering her a buy out, which is far from the professional way he has always done business.

I know I will.

Kudos Ms. Andre for another brilliant book in the saga of the Sullivans. Oct 22, Selina Durio rated it it was amazing. The Sullivans get better and better Each Sullivan book gets better and better! When a series has so many installments it can oft times become stale. Andre has been successful in making each story independently enjoyable, while keeping it within the thread of the larger story.

Alec was so jaded by his parents tragic story that he never believed he deserved love. Oct 18, Sharon Rudolph rated it it was amazing.

Though Goodwin asks his audience to suspend belief and conjure a starkly different world, he supports his stance with reasoning and unquestionable confidence. For instance, Goodwin suggests that belief, faith, and religion simply function as a curtain, keeping our species oblivious to intergalactic workings.

From the Secret Space Program and psychic abilities to hundreds of spherical objects entering our solar system and the Illuminati having a base on the moon, the text dives headfirst into possibilities that could force the truth-seeking individual to reexamine human history. Interestingly, Goodwin surmises that earthly humans are being exploited via our reliance on emotions and inhibitions.
