The Way You Look Tonight by Bella Andre


As a very successful private investigator who has caught most of the cheaters in Seattle with their pants down, Rafe Sullivan believes true, lasting love only happens once in a blue moon. Needing to get away from the city to clear his head, he finds the lake house where he spent the best summers of his life is now a wreck...but the sweet girl next door is all grown up and prettier than anything he's ever seen.

While Brooke Jansen is happy making and selling chocolate truffles in her small Pacific Northwest lake town, she secretly longs to experience something wild. So when her favorite “Wild Sullivan” moves in again next door after more than a decade away, and sparks fly between them, she can't stop wondering if being bad is really as good as it always seemed...and just how long it will be before she can find out.

But when their summer fling quickly spirals into deeper emotions than either of them were expecting, can they survive the heat between them? Or will Rafe make the biggest mistake of his life and end up losing the best thing that's ever happened to him?


Another amazing story by Bella Andre.  One of my favorite authors with the way she grabs your attention right from the beginning, invests you deeply into the characters, and has just enough steamy scenes to keep you begging for more!!

I always love the girl next door story!  Brooke's grandparents live next door to Rafe's family summer home on the lake. She grew up spending summers with them and had a major crush on bad boy Rafe.

Brooke recently moved into her grandparents home and started a chocolate truffle making business. Rafe just bought back the house his family used to own and has taken time off from work to fix it up and also to get away to re-evaluate his life.

One sight of Rafe pulling up next door on his motorcycle (sigh), and Brooke realizes her childhood crush is actually something much more.  Rafe is a PI who has seen the pain and hurt people can cause each other. Love isn't something he believes in.  Until he sees Brooke again.

Their chemistry is hot!  Sweet Brooke wanting to be wild with Rafe, wild Rafe trying to be sweet and gentle for Brooke.  Who will finally win?  Well,  really can there be a loser in that scenario?!  Rafe has been hurt and isn't able to trust, but Brooke's innocence and persistence start to tear down his walls.

As with the first group of Sullivan books, the family is close and are always 'lovingly interfering' in each others lives. I thoroughly enjoyed their interactions and am looking forward to the other siblings' stories! Amazing start to the next part of this series - I can't wait for the more of the Seattle Sullivan's!!!! -Tynna
