It Must Be Your Love by Bella Andre

it must be your loveTitle: It Must Be Love

Series: The Sullivans bk 11, Seattle Sullivan’s bk 2

Author: Bella Andre

Genre: Contemporary

Successful Seattle Realtor Mia Sullivan is nobody’s fool…apart from that one week five years ago when she gave away 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 Victor can have any woman he wants…except Mia Sullivan. But now he knows millions of strangers singing along with his songs can’t fill the hole inside of 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. Between irresistible kisses, a romantic Sullivan wedding in Napa Valley, and a deeply sensual connection that neither of them can deny, can Mia and Ford finally rediscover a love—and a friendship—strong enough to last forever?

Thoughts: One of the things I like about Andre’s writing is that while I might not always like the story/plot I usually end up loving the characters. Lucky for me I loved the story/plot of this book.

Back when Ford and Mia were stupid in love and young, they both said and did something things to each other that caused lasting damage. So when it’s pointed out to Ford that he still feels as strongly for Mia and that he’ll be making the biggest mistake of his life by not going after her, and not be an asshole.

Mia refuses to let any man hurt her as Ford did, and has errected the Great Wall of China around her emotions. So when Ford comes back into her life determined to make right what he broke, she wants nothing to do with him. But he’s determined and soon she finds herself letting him and discovering things about him she never knew.

I love rock star heroes. This probably goes back to when I as a kid and Rick Springfield was on General Hospital as well being a rock star. Plus I was a teenager during the hair band era and Jon Bon Jovi is still one of the sexiest men alive.

So that being said I was on team Ford from the very beginning. He knew exactly what he wanted, and was determined to do what ever it took to have Mia and her love back in his life. Including baring his soul, something he’d been unable to do when they’d been together before. This book could have been told entirely in Ford’s POV and I would have been a happy camper. 

Mia was meh for me. I liked her because Ford loved her, but on her own she just didn’t do it for me. I enjoyed seeing her with her family, and when she went off on Ford’s parents she was awesome, but I other than that meh.

Overall this is a really good book, and we get to see more of the original Sullivan’s at a wedding, and we get to meet Mia’s brother who has been living in England for years. It also sets up his story really nicely.

Grade B+
