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 do…how can he possibly resist?
This is the fourth book of the Sullivan Series and if you have not read any of them, I suggest you go out and start reading them now.
Haven’t we all had dreams of going after that one person who we think is out of our reach, be they the bad boy, our brother’s friend or someone we think is way out of our league? Sophie Sullivan has had feelings for bad boy Jake McCann since the day they met. Sophie has always been perceived as the good sister, as “nice” who will always be on hand to help out and do the right thing.
Jake has always been secretly attracted to Sophie but has never acted on his feelings for her due to the fact that he sees the Sullivans as his second family.
What I especially liked about this book was the fact that it shows how people’s perceptions of other people may not necessarily be the true representation of a person. This book shows that we really do put people in boxes as to how we see them and it only when a person takes a risk that their true character shines.
It is only when Sophie puts it all on the line that we see her for who she really is, it’s only when Jake starts to trust himself and others that we get to see the person he becomes.
Isn’t that what we should all be like…fearless.
This was a great contemporary romance showcasing real life situations with humour. Loved it.
