"Love just pours off the pages!" Guilty Pleasures Reviews
*** This book is a standalone novel. ***
Find out why 5 million readers have fallen in love with Bella Andre's Sullivans!

World-renowned artist Drake Sullivan doesn't paint women. Ever. Not when he knows all too well just how destructive painter/muse relationships can be. But on the day Rosa Bouchard walks onto the cliffs outside his Montauk cottage, Drake is so captivated that he can't stop himself from bringing her life on canvas.

Shocked and horrified by the nude photos of her that have just hit the Internet, reality TV star Rosa's every instinct is to run from her Miami home and hide. After driving all night, she ends up in Montauk, New York, where she doesn't know a soul and plans to lie low until she can figure out how to deal with the media firestorm--and her own mother, who seems all too happy to sell out Rosa's happiness for more fame, more fans, and more money. The very last thing Rosa expects is to find, and to fall for, a sinfully sexy man like Drake Sullivan.

Drake has never felt this way about anything he's painted...and he's definitely never felt this way about a woman. When they kiss, everything but sweet, breathless desire melts away. But can he convince Rosa to trust--and to love--again after such a devastating betrayal?

"Drake Sullivan is swoon worthy!" Linda, 5 stars

"Bella Andre has done it again! NOW THAT I'VE FOUND YOU is a great start to this next chapter for a beloved family." Jennifer, 5 stars

"I honestly don't know how I survived without Bella Andre's beautiful romances!" Trudy, 5 stars

"Not since Nora Roberts has anyone been able to write a big family romance series with every book as good as the last. Bella Andre never disappoints." Revolving Bookcase

NOW THAT I'VE FOUND YOU is part of Bella Andre's New York Times and USA Today #1 bestselling series about The Sullivans. While it can easily be read as a stand-alone story, you'll likely enjoy reading the other books, too.

## FANTASTIC read. I enjoyed this book by the brillaint Ms. Andre. Drake and Rosa were amazing together. I loved how fiercely they protected each other. Drake was hot as hell and Rosa was incredibly sweet. Albeit enjoying this charming story, I felt a little something missing. A conflict maybe? It felt a little anti-climactic without one. But that won't keep me from reading again. Looking forward to Suzanne's story. Apprx. 220 pages.

Drake and Rosa's story isn't just about love, but forgiving as well. It's love Sullivan style and the foundation to forgiving. A great story that should not be missed.

Another great story. Drake and Rosa's story is one of love at first sight. Its more than that though. Its about forgiveness for family and for forgiving oneself. I really liked Drake and Rosa together. Oscar the dog was great asset too! I have enjoyed all of the Sullivan stories and this one is no different!

Rosa and her family are on a reality TV series. Sadly a cameraman hid a camera in her room and sold pictures of her to the highest bidder. Rosa was devastated and had to get away. Drake is a painter who is having a dry spell and is looking for inspiration. He finds this when he finds Rosa on his cliffs. Rosa needs to learn to trust and Drake is just the man to do just that. Drake's father has always kept his children at arms length since their mother left him. This family needs healing and slow that process is happening. Another great Sullivan sorry. So can't wait for more!!

I have come to a definite conclusion. If you want to read a great romance novel, any Bella Andre book is the way to go. Ms. Andre’s has this stupendous series about a wonderful family, The Sullivan’s. It is a family that anyone would love to be a part of. Each and every member of this family is someone you would love to have for a sibling, a cousin, and especially, a SPOUSE! Now That I’ve Found You is Ms. Andre’s latest release in this series, the first in the New York branch of the Sullivan family. This story is about the super-hot, Drake Sullivan, a world famous artist, and the beautiful Rosalind Bouchard, a reality show star. Drake has a major show in a matter of weeks, but he is cannot paint! Looking out on his cliffs, he sees her. As he watches her, he realizes he HAS to paint her. Rosa’s life is in turmoil. Some degenerate secretly put a camera in her hotel room and filmed her getting dressed and bathing and has now sold the photos. She runs to the one place she remembers spending time with her father. The cliffs of Montauk, NY. Drake’s cliffs. This is a beautifully written story of healing, and learning to trust again. I love the way Drake teaches Rosa to trust in people again by being that totally gorgeous man, both inside and out. And did I say HOT!?!? I love the way Ms. Andre developed the story of how Rosa feels about the photos and how she starts to realize that she is not at fault. I think my favorite part of the book is when Rosa tells Drake to use the….. Nope, no spoilers, let me just say that this scene is a major point in showing how Rosa has gained her strength back. I was gifted with a copy of this marvelous book for my honest opinion. And in my honest opinion, you cannot go wrong in reading this book. Yes, you do need to One-Click it! OK Bella, you gave just enough of a hint about Suzanne’s story coming out this fall, I cannot wait to read it as well. Kudos on another OUTSTANDING book!

When a Sullivan falls, they fall hard and fast. Scandal has Rosa running from her life as a reality TV star, right into Drake's back yard. Drake has secluded himself with his dog Oscar at his Montauk cabin in hopes of finding his muse, and passion for painting again. From the moment he saw her, he became obsessed with painting her. The first time she sees him, she runs away. She doesn't get far though, the instant connection between Rosa and Drake was so strong neither could resist, even if they had wanted to, that is. There is so much passion, love amongst the Sullivan siblings/cousins and reconnecting with estranged family members. Bella keeps you wondering if Rosa will wise up and see what is in front of her, or if she will throw it all away because of doubt and fear.

I loved it. The Sullivan's are all terrific and a wonderful family. There was something about Drake and Rosa's story I just couldn't put it down. She turned into such a strong character. I can't wait for the next one in the series.

Drake is an artist in a cabin which seems to be situated in the middle of nowhere. One day he sees a woman on his cliffs, he is immediately concerned that she could be hurt physically so he goes out to see her but he realises that she’s hurt emotionally. She’s been affected by recent events in her life and he can see that she is troubled. The one thing that I love about Drake is that regardless of the fact that its cold and raining, he goes out with the sole intention of making sure this woman who he has never met before is okay and well. Rosa has insecurities and has been badly hurt by her mother although her mother thinks what she is doing is perfectly acceptable. Rosa is cynical throughout this book and believes that her attempts to hide out will be revealed by the people in the small town that she has ended up in. My heart goes out to her because she’s in this headspace where she feels like Drake is against her but actually Drake’s artistic inspiration has awoken since he saw her on the cliffs. Drake uses the inspiration to paint, and to discover himself again. Rosa helps him but Drake also helps her to realise that she is worth more than she thinks. She has so much beauty inside and out but she doesn’t see herself in the way that Drake does and when she realises that Drake does see herself that way, she almost in a way starts to panic because she is now exposed and open. I love that she and Drake met and was the beacon of light for each other. It is so apt and its pure Bella Andre genius. Every time I read a Bella Andre novel, I smile because there is this infinite feel of family and community. It has so many feels and you just wish that the Sullivan’s were a real and true family. I have loved every single Sullivan book to date. Drake’s book is no different. I could read any of her books for hours and hours on end and not get bored. She has this amazing way of evoking all the motion from you and you can’t help but fall in love with each and every single word of hers. If you’re a newbie to Bella Andre, you can read this one as each book is a standalone but if you want to fall in love with the Sullivan’s, start from the beginning with The Look Of Love. I love each and every one for different reasons! I totally recommend this! 5 stars!!

In this book, Bella helps us dive in to the lives of the NY Sullivan's, and she doesn't disappoint!! Rosa is faced with an issue that has unfortunately become all to common for women and girls. She comes off as weak at first, but then you see her true spirit emerge, with the help of a certain sexy artist. I love how they help each other find what they need, and it's not just one person giving everything. This book gives you quite a bit of backstory on the NY Sullivan's, and my heart couldn't help but break for them. I was drawn in from the first page, and couldn't put this book down. Full of love, healing, and steamy scenes, this book is definitely a must read!!

What a wonderful introduction to the New York Sullivans! I have been completely captivated b the San Francisco and Seattle branches of this remarkable family, brought to life so unforgetably by Bella Andre, so I was thrilled to read this riveting addition to the Sullivan family story. I absolutely look forward to reading all of this New York Sullivans series, especially since characters from earlier Sullivan stories have been known to make an appearance in the later books, as they did in this one. All the Sullivan titles can be read as stand alones and you can't go wrong, no matter what title you start with. Be forewarned that once you read one book, you'll be left with a craving to read another, and another.....well you get the idea.

I have followed all of the Sullivans from San Francisco to Seattle and now to New York, and loved them all. I almost feel like a stalker peeking in to see what they are up to, but I am really looking forward to all of the New York Sullivans. Drake and Rosa's story was the introduction of the cousins from New York, and most of the story was about Drake and Rosa and a more intimate detail on their falling in love and healing old family hurts, with the mention of Smith and Drake's father, brothers and sister. The last half of the book was better for me with the introduction of the rest of Drake's family and the interactions of them all with their father and each other. For me that was when Rosa really came alive and and the book peaked. After reading "Now That I've Found You", I cannot wait to read the next story of this clan. Looking forward to Suzanne Sullivan's story this fall. Thank You to Bella Andre and her team for gifting me with an ARC of "Now That I've Found You" and only asking for my honest review. 4.5 Stars!

"Now That I've Found You" (New York Sullivans Book 1/ Sullivans Series Book 15) by Bella Andre is a fantastic read! I loved Drake and Rosa. This is an excellent addition to the Sullivans Series. I'm anxious to read what will happen next in "Since I Fell For You" (New York Sullivan's Book 2). Looking forward to getting to know the rest of the New York Sullivans! Highly recommend to all fans of romance and close families.

I received a free ARC copy in exchange for an honest review. I am so thrilled to reading about the Sullivan's again. They are such a close knit family and such a joy to read about. The cousins are no different, though their past is a little darker and not filled with love. Drake Sullivan is a world famous painter. His father was a world famous painter and stopped painting after Drake's mom passed. Drake is having a 'block' and is unable to find inspiration to a paint anything. He's feeling a lot of pressure as he has a show in a couple weeks and has no paintings. He looks out his cabin and sees a captivating woman and notices she is crying. Before he can find out who she is she disappears. Later in town he discovers by a tabloid heading that the lady is reality star, Rosalind (Rosa). She is hiding as someone hid a video camera in her hotel room and took several pictures of her undressing and sold them to the tabloids. She is devastated. She doesn't feel she has her mother's support and feels very used. Drake helps her out when her vehicle breaks down and convinces her that he wants nothing from her. In exchange she agrees to allow him to paint her. There is instant attraction between these two and Drake helps Rosa discover that her hobby is actually very beautiful art. Through Rosa Drake rediscovers the beauty of painting/drawing. They help each other with their own issues from their past. I loved their interaction and getting to know the Sullivan cousins better.

I love the Sullivan series. While overall, I enjoyed the story and romance between Rosa and Drake, I felt that the story could have had more depth and development. The romance aspect of the book is hot and sexy. It is a love at first sight romance, which is totally believable and acceptable to me. (I know some people don't like that, but hey it does happen.) I did feel the instant connection between Rosa and Drake. I liked how we get to see Rosa through Drake's artist eyes. They make a great couple and give each other the encouragement and strength to deal with the issues life has thrown at them. The story deals with the real life issue of cyber bullying. Camera's were hidden in Rosa's hotel room and pictures of her undressing and getting in the tub are leaked. I liked how Rosa ends up dealing with the aftermath of this and the good she creates from the horrible situation. If you are a fan of the Sullivan series, then you should definitely read this one. I received an ARC (advanced readers copy) of this book in exchange for my honest review.

Love, love, love this story.. Rosa and her family have been the stars of a reality show for five years.. After a reporter plants a camera in her hotel room and puts naked photos of her all over the internet and front pages of the newspapers, Rosa flees her home... Drake is an artist, going through a dry patch... he can't find inspiration, until he sees a beautiful woman crying in the midst of a storm.. when she confides in him, he can't help but feel protective.. Their connection is instant and the sparks fly.. you just can't help falling for the Sullivan's.. I love their story and I can't recommend Bella's books highly enough.. I'm so excited for the rest of this series!!

Bella Andre does not disappoint AGAIN! I love all of her books, and the latest Sullivan book was another one to add to my "loved books" list. Through her writing, Bella made me think about how, as a society, we judge reality TV stars like we "know" them. This book combines a great romance with an unforgettable story line. I can't wait to read about the next Sullivan!
