Overview

"It never ceases to amaze me how Bella Andre's books can make you feel so good." 5 stars from Jacky

Flynn Stewart, an award-winning screenwriter, seems to have the perfect Hollywood life. Until his dark past comes crashing back when he learns his long-lost sister has passed away—and he has a six-month-old niece named Ruby. Flynn vows to give the little girl who now means everything to him a better childhood than he or his sister ever had. So when he finds out that Ruby's nanny is trying to sell their story to the press, he takes his niece as far from Hollywood as he can.

One of seven siblings in Bar Harbor, Cassie Sullivan has always been grateful for the love and support of her tight-knit family. Because of them, she had the courage to create a successful candy confection business. So when a friend of her cousin needs a place to stay with his baby for a few weeks, she's happy to offer him her cabin in the woods. But from the first moment she meets Flynn and Ruby, her heart is lost to the gorgeous man and his adorable little girl.

Flynn has never met anyone as cheerful and open as Cassie. Instantly drawn to her, he finds himself telling her things about his past that he's never spoken of to anyone—things that make him certain he could never be worthy of her. Only, Cassie isn't about to let the pair who have stolen her heart go without a fight—using all the light, love, and laughter she can give them. Will the nightmares from Flynn's past continue to haunt him and and steal away the joy of a future with Cassie? Or will Cassie's love, and the support of her big family, be powerful enough to help him face his long-buried demons and conquer them at last?

YOUR LOVE IS MINE 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.

"I adore the Sullivans! They love hard, laugh uproariously and live in the moment." 5 stars from Isha

"Sweet, charming, heartwarming and sexy in all the right ways." 5 stars Marybeth

This is Cassie’s story and as her business is making candy, spreading sweetness, so is this story. Flynn Stewart and his toddler daughter Ruby came to Maine to get away from the paparazzi. He is a screenwriter and just recently took over his deceased sister daughters care. He adopted her. Speculation is running wild in Hollywood on who is the baby’s mom. He won’t say so they had to leave town. Cassie’s cousin recommended her cabin in Maine, so here they are. This is a story of self discovery and analyzing what road to choose from here on out. A story of friendship that turns to love. A story of wonderment that there are still good people in the world and they all live in Bar Harbor.

Cassie is renting her cabin to Flynn a friend of her cousin Smith. Flynn has adopted his sisters baby Ruby and needs a place to get away from LA.Strong and believable characters but story has too many sexual scenes.
Anonymous 7 months ago
## Not good. I didn't like this one at all. Too much emphasis on the baby. She should be a secondary character not the focal point in a romance novel. The heroine pushed herself into the hero's life along with her mom and just took over. She was over the top cheery, fell in love immediately and insisted that he love her too. No build up, no angst, no conflict between h/h. These latest books in the series have been repetitive and quite frankly not worth six dollars. I miss the early Sullivan books. Chase, Marcus, Lori, Sophie, Zach...all outstanding stories with fun plot lines, interesting characters, and conflict/resolution. I'm afraid I'm done with this series.

This is the first story of the Maine branch of the Sullivan family tree. Our heroine, Cassie, rents her cabin to one of her cousin's, Smith's friends, who needs to get away from Hollywood. Our Hero, Flynn, who just assumed custody of his baby niece, Ruby, wants to shelter her from the nosy paparazzi that usually surrounds him due to his success as a screenwriter. I loved the slow build of trust and chemistry between these two, while also keeping their budding relationship on the down low from her family. I loved all the interaction between Cassie and Ruby when her maternal instincts would kick in. With that said, I had to suspend a little disbelief that Flynn seemed too at ease taking care of an infant, having had no prior exposure to babies before, unlike Cassie, who not only helped take care of her nephew, but is surrounded by babies with the extended Sullivan clan. I look forward to seeing more of this new, young family when Cassie's siblings' love stories start to bloom.

YOUR LOVE IS MINE is a sweet romance that introduces us to the Maine branch of the Sullivan family tree. Created by author Bella Andre, we’ve enjoyed Sullivans in San Francisco, Seattle and New York before now. Set in Bar Harbor, Flynn Stewart and his 6-month-old niece are fleeing the media vultures of Hollywood and looking for peace. They land in a cabin rented by Cassie Sullivan, cousin to Smith and Valentina Sullivan from Book 7. Smith is the common denominator for this title, but there’s no need to have read Smith’s book before. The relationship between Flynn and Cassie fill the pages with sweetness and angst and some pressure from Cassie’s family — not to mention the cuteness of little Ruby. If you haven’t read any of Bella Andre’s Sullivan titles, this is a great one with which to start. If you have read the entire series (18 books previously), you’ll love meeting Cassie and her family. Either way, settle in for a delightful read that will fill you with warm fuzzies when you turn the last page.

Not one of my favorite books in the series. Actually, very disappointed in the book. The characters really never developed, the love story was too quick and not work the money. Sorry. Her books are usually really good. Hoping the next book is better.

ARC for honest review with no compensation Your Love Is Mine is book 1 in the Maine Sullivans and book 19 in the Sullivans series by Bella Andre and a great start to another series!! Cassie Sullivan candy maker extraordinaire, sunshine and rainbows type of person agrees to let a friend of her cousin Smith who needs to get away from Hollywood use her cabin...what she doesn’t expect to find is a hot, sexy man with an adorable baby girl and attraction like she’s never known before... Flynn Stewart a Hollywood screen writer has it all...women, awards and money galore but nobody knows about his past...until he is notified that is sister is dead and she has a baby girl, Ruby. With the Nanny trying to sell his story and the paparazzi wanting to know who the baby’s mother is, he knows his past may be catching up to him and he needs to leave Hollywood to get his and Ruby’s lives sorted out. With the help of his friend Smith Sullivan who sends Flynn to his cousin Cassie’s place in Maine. Can Cassie show Flynn that sometimes the past needs to be faced and overcome so life can move forward and maybe find the HEA that’s been missing all along...

"Your Love is Mine" (Maine Sullivans Book 1, The Sullivans Book 19) by Bella Andre is a fantastic read. I loved Cassie and Flynn's story. This is a great addition to the Sullivans series, and a great start to the Maine Sullivans series. This book is packed with romance, passion, humor, overcoming the past, close family, interesting characters, and more. I can't wait to see what happens next with all of these wonderful characters. Highly recommend to all fans of romance, entertaining and interesting characters, close family, and series.

Adored this truly heartwarming, emotional and engaging journey filled with longing, heartbreak, forgiveness and understanding that has a firm hold on all my heart strings.... It was a highly entertaining and sweetly thrilling read. Loving the Sullivans of Maine!

Another Sullivan spinoff family, the Sullivans of Maine, with a family similar to the California Sullivan’s. This was a sweet story....literally. Cassie is a candy maker also known as an artist. I must say i did not know this was a profession, but she is part of the Maine Sullivan’s, most of whom still live very close to the parents. Flynn Stewart is an Oscar winning screen writer who finds he is in charge of 6 month old baby girl, and needs to get out of Hollywood for her sake. By way of the California Sullivan’s, he finds out that Cassie will rent him a cabin in the woods of Maine to help him hide from the paparazzi. Flynn has a lot of issues, baby Ruby is adorable, and Cassie wants to love them both. With the help of her family, Flynn sees a different way of life from the one he was running from. Although I love Sullivan Family stories, and Bella Andre is a wonderful storyteller, this book lacked something for me. I almost felt as if everything went too smoothly and easily for this HEA. I am not sure if I wanted more angst of more depth, but it lacked that something for me that made this story great. Another good story, just not my favorite.

Such a beautiful romance between Flynn & Cassie - A perfect introduction to the Maine Sullivans!! Amazing chemistry, sweet romance, another awesome read from Bella Andre!! You won't be disappointed!!

Cassie Sullivan’s book starts the third set of Sullivan stories. They live in Maine with their parents Ethan and Beth. Flynn Stewart is a screenwriting friend of Smith’s who needs a place to stay after he discovers his nanny has sold the story of how he came to get his niece Ruby. Smith told Flynn about the cabin his cousin Cassie has in Maine. I liked the book very much. Cassie is a very positive person and sees the good in everything. She gets Flynn to see that he’s not the product of what happened when he was a child. What also made it good was Flynn’s slow transformation to someone who changed from trying to hide himself to someone who was willing to share his background with the Sullivan family. I would definitely recommend this to family and friends. I give it 5 stars.

Another wonderful Sullivan family to fall in love with!!! I have been with this author from the beginning of the Sullivan’s and I am never disappointed. This is the Sullivan family of Maine and the first introduction to Ethan and Beth Sullivan and their five children. The first story belongs to Cassie Sullivan. Cassie’s famous cousin, Smith Sullivan, has a friend who needs to escape the craziness of Hollywood for a while. He has adopted his deceased sisters baby and the paparazzi are just too much. So Smith offers him the use of Cassie’s cabin in the Maine woods. When Flynn first arrives at the cabin in the woods, he is full of tension and dark thoughts. Cassie immediately becomes a beacon of light in his dark life. But can he spoil her goodness with his secrets and his past? Just like she always does, Bella gives us a strong woman who loves her man and isn’t giving up! Cassie falls for Flynn and Ruby and she will hold on no matter what. Love this entire series, every single story is it’s own unique HEA.
DBergs More than 1 year ago
I know this book is about Flynn and Cassie but Ruby stole the show for me! Flynn clearly doubted his own abilities to raise Ruby but stepped up to the plate when called on - and Ruby ended up being a saving grace for him. Cassie's sweet side rang true throughout the entire book but it was clear that she could also stand up for herself. Once Flynn called Cassie in a clear SOS call in the middle of the night, I knew that the two of them were going to work everything out. Their road had a lot of ups and downs - and probably still will ahead as the two of them navigate raising Ruby and Flynn's fame (as well as Cassie's as she rises in her own profession), but the two of them have a strong foundation to continue to build their happily ever after. I cannot wait for the next book in this series!

This book is sure to make your heart melt and then soar. This is a beautiful, emotional story. Flynn is a man with secrets, a painful past, trust issues and a baby niece he needs to protect and take care of. My heart broke for him and I was so happy that fate led him to Cassie. Cassie was a character full of light, goodness and determination. She was truly what Flynn and Ruby not only needed, but deserved. Ruby was precious and stole my heart. A great read full of family, sweetness and poignancy.

I received this ARC for an honest review. I have been a fan of Bella Andre for many years, and she has never disappointed me. This story is spin off of the Sullivans’ books. This series is about the Maine Sullivan’s. I enjoyed this book. This book is about Flynn and Cassie. Flynn is a screen writer. He specializes in horror films. He adopted his niece,Ruby, after his sister died of an overdose. The media was driven to get the scoop behind the adoption, so he decided to get away. His friend Smith Sullivan arraigned for him to rent Cassie’s cabin for a few weeks. When they first met, Flynn was standoffish and rude. Cassie is an candy artist. Flynn was having a terrible night with Ruby. She kept crying and screaming. In a near panic, Flynn called Cassie for help. This the start of Flynn’s and Cassie’s relationship. He started to trust Cassie. When he met Cassie’s mom at the restaurant, she fell in love with Ruby. I’m not going to give any more away. YOU MUST READ THIS BOOK TO FIND OUT WHAT HAPPENS.

Your love is mine is a beautiful and captivating read. Flynn managed to start his life again in LA, after a horrible childhood. But a call from his past has him facing all his fears once again and the guardian to his sisters six month old daughter, Ruby. Wanting to take Ruby away from prying eyes in Hollywood, Flynn heads to a cabin in Bar Harbor, owned by Cassie Sullivan. Cassie is one of 7 siblings, and has her own successful candy confection business. When her cousin Smiths friend needs a place to stay, she happily offers her cabin. But on first sight she falls for the handsome and grumpy man and his adorable daughter. I loved that Cassie is a determined woman, and she is willing to fight for Flynn, even with him. The introduction of characters who will have their own books in the future is seamlessly incorporated in this story and doesn’t take way from the main characters. With such a beautiful and emotional start to the series, I can’t wait to read the rest.

All the feels! Bella Andre writes from the heart. She can delve deep into the psyche of damaged people, understand their issues, and have them come through to the other side if not healed, at least healing. Flynn has had crap handed to him since he was born. He left home at 17 to reinvent himself, and now as a top Hollywood screenwriter, did a darn good job. His regrets include not being able to save his younger sister once he left. Now, after she is dead, he finds out he is the guardian of her 6 month old daughter. Wanting to shield his niece Ruby from the Hollywood hype, he rents a cabin in the woods of Maine to try to bond with the child and get his languishing screenplay back on track! Cassie should be named Pollyanna. Everything is wonderful in her world. She is as sweet as the candy she makes, and just happens to own the cabin where Flynn and Ruby are staying. Cassie is enamored with Ruby, loves her at first sight! She gives Flynn her cell number and leaves the cabin to let them get settled. Unfortunately, or fortunately...Ruby is NOT happy with her new digs and Flynn has to call Cassie for help. Where do they go from here? Can Flynn get back on track, taking care of an infant and having a deadline for his screenplay? Will Cassie just leave them alone or try with her whole heart to make everything good for Ruby and possibly Flynn as well? Will Flynn find himself worthy of the absolute love that Cassie surrounds herself with and be able to be the man both Cassie and Ruby need and he deserves to find? With seven Maine Sullivans, I'm so looking forward to the next books in this series and LOVED 'Your Love Is Mine'.

Flynn's life is turned upside down, when his sister died and he finds out he is an uncle. Bringing Ruby home is scary, but he is determined to give her the life he and his sister never had. Being a screenwriter in a world full of fakes, is easy to hide his past. But when his nannies starts selling stories, he takes Ruby out of the city to a cottage his friend suggests, owned by his cousin Cassie. Cassie loves creating masterpieces, from sweets. She has a heart of gold and loves hard. So it's understandable, that when she meets Ruby and Flynn she falls hard for them both. Flynns past makes him think he's not worthy, so Cassie sets out to prove him wrong.she's determined to make him see that he's a good man and his childhood doesn't determine the kind of man he is I love their connection and baby Ruby is adorable. I was rooting for them all the way.

I voluntarily offered to review this book with no obligations and my opinions are honest! It was a great book and a very sweet read ! In order to protect his niece Ruby, Flynn flees from his Hollywood life. He rents a cabin in Bar Harbor. They should be safe from the paparazzi there. Cassie was doing a favor for her cousin by renting the cabin to Flynn. She did not expect to fall in love with not only little Ruby, but with Flynn as well. Flynn is charmed by Cassie, and little by little he also falls in love with Cassie. This was a very sweet story. Loved the characters + the storytelling! It has all the ingredients that you need for a great book! I can't wait for the next book in this series.

I was so looking forward to the new Maine Sullivan's book and Cassie and Flynn's story didn't disappoint. They are my favorite book family and I loved this story. Can't wait for more.
TrudyAD More than 1 year ago
This story touched me in away most books only wish they could. I can't think of another author that has written a character that I can identify with so deeply. I get Flynn Stewart. I understand his actions. I feel his pain. I relish in his success. But most of all I am so happy that he let himself love. Everyone deserves real love, even those that have never experienced it in their past. Maybe them more than most. Flynn is the perfect candidate to become a member of the Sullivan extended family. How many of us wish we could be part of the family? I can't believe that I am jealous after reading this story. Why can't I be a Sullivan??? I want to be part of a close knit family. I want to be surrounded by the deep love and devotion. Distance does not matter. Honest, love and acceptance make up this strong family no matter where they live. After all it was Smith Sullivan that suggested Flynn Stewart escape to Bar Harbor. Escape to Cassie's cabin. Find peace. Cassie has never seen one of Flynn's movies but that doesn't stop the connection. She knows he is there to get away from it all, to get to know Ruby, a baby he has adopted after her parent's tragic death. No one knows anything else. Flynn does not share his past, his present, his heart. Flynn can't deny the connection but he has choose not to act on it, or so he thinks. Your Love is Mine is a amazing love story. Your Love is Mine is a story of failed resistance. Your Love is Mine is a story of love conquering all, tearing down walls, catching someone when they fall. Your love is mine is what we all want even when we are afraid to admit it. We all have a little bit of Flynn in us when what we actually need is to have a little bit of Cassie in us. 3/13/2019 I can't believe it but this story was even better the second time around. I wonder how long it will be before I pick it up again.

With Your Love Is Mine (Maine Sullivans) Bella Andre is giving us yet another branch of the amazing Sullivan family. Your Love Is Mine is the first in this series, but like with all the other Sullivan’s, it’s a standalone romance but incorporates characters from past books and introduces you to the family Sullivan so you get excited about future books too! In Your Love is Mine, we meet Cassie, a candy artist, and Flynn a troubled Hollywood screenwriter who has just had his life turned upside down by Ruby, the sweetest 6-month-old girl. If you’ve never read Bella Andre before you’ll quickly learn that she writes books about family and love and strength that make you swoon, smile and leaves you feeling happy. Andre didn’t let readers down with this new addition. Cassie is a happy girl willing to fight for what she wants. She has some overprotective family members that adds some fun to the story. Flynn is world-weary and has some secrets and issues, but between Cassie and the scene-stealing Ruby, Flynn gets the support he needs to face his troubles. I read Your Love Is Mine in just a couple hours and when I was finished, I was left with a goofy smile on my face. This is the perfect read after a hard day or if you’re feeling down or need a pick-me-up. It’s really that good. Enjoy! I received an Advanced Reader Copy of this novel. I am voluntarily and freely providing an honest review.
