cover56580-mediumNew York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Bella Andre brings you a new set of Sullivans to fall in love with…

Successful Seattle Realtor Mia Sullivan is nobody’s fool…apart from that one week five years ago when she gave her heart to a sexy musician who gave her nothing in return but a few sinfully perfect days—and nights—in his bed. Though she swears she never wants to see him again, he’s the one man she’s never been able to forget.

One of the hottest rock stars in the world, Ford Vincent can have any woman he wants…except Mia Sullivan. But he knows millions of strangers singing along with his songs can’t fill the hole inside him. Only Mia’s love has the power to do that—so he vows to do anything and everything it takes to win her heart again.

From the first moment they see each other again, intense sparks of attraction fly. But can Mia and Ford finally rediscover a love strong enough to last forever?

I think I’ve read one of the other Sullivan series but I’m not an avid reader so I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed this one (especially without the history).  The characters are charismatic, deeply developed, and their interactions are so very realistic.  I felt like I knew these people when I was done … and found myself wishing for my own spot at the Sullivan dinner table. 

I loved the idea that these two, who are absolutely perfect for each other, met at a time in their lives when they weren’t ready.  It led to five years of heartache but the resulting story of reunited love is excellent.  Not only does Ford work hard to get back in Mia’s good graces, but they both have to take a look at themselves and figure out what is truly important. 

From what I can tell, family is an important theme in Andre’s books and it definitely makes an appearance here.  Not only thru the love and support of Mia’s family but the opposite that Ford gets from his.  It’s an extreme comparison but one that helps highlight the people they’ve become and to show what they could be if they learn to forgive and trust.  It also adds that extra depth to the characters that makes them to feel so very real.

With that perfect balance of heart and heat, love and support, without a lot of unnecessary drama, It Must Be Your Love has introduced me to another author that I’ll be reading for years to come.  With the Sullivans, Andre has given the world a family to root for, to love and cry with, and to call friends.
