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?
Sophie’s been in love with Jake since the day she met him. Jake treats Sophie like the “nice” twin and his best friend’s little sister, but he’s always loved her, too. The problem is that he doesn’t think he’s good enough for her and her 6 brothers would not only agree with him, but would kill him for even looking at her sideways. When she shows up at his place and drops her dress, his self-control slips and breaks a hip, and all bets are off.
Fast forward a couple months after he quietly sneaked out post-lovemaking and Sophie realizes that she is pregnant. When she goes to tell him, he insists they get married. Despite all of his dreams coming true (he’ll get to be with her forever, now), she thinks he’s only demanding marriage because of the baby, which he never bothers to correct, and then he insists that she give him a week to convince her to marry him.
I really liked this book. Jake had such a heartbreaking past and didn’t feel he deserved Sophie. Sophie was the “nice” one, quiet and smart and thought of by everyone she knows as good, but she didn’t want to have to live up to that. Together, they were very sweet and loving and pretty freaking sexy, honestly. This is my first book my Ms. Andre & I really want to read more of her stuff, especially this series. Eight children! Kind of reminded me of the Bridgertons, but you know, American & modern day. I can’t wait to get my hands on the other four that are already out as well as the ones she has yet to release.
