Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance
Narrator: Eva Kaminsky
Seattle architect Adam Sullivan is well known for his brilliant historic building restorations—and for having absolutely no interest in love and marriage. He’s happy for his siblings and cousins who have found true love, but though they’re clearly hellbent on seeing him settled, his family is just going to have to accept that Cupid’s arrow will be skipping this Sullivan. That is, until he meets Kerry Dromoland…and suddenly Adam starts to question everything he once believed to be true about falling in love.
As one of the top wedding planners in Seattle, Kerry has been waiting her whole life to find her own true love. So even though Adam makes her heart race and her body heat up every time they’re together, she knows better than to think he could be “the one.” Still, knowing he’s Seattle’s biggest player doesn’t make it any easier to resist his breathtaking kisses and wicked caresses…or the fact that he makes her smile more than any man ever has.
But when Kerry desperately needs Adam’s help—and he comes through for her without the slightest hesitation—she begins to realize that there just might be more to the man she can’t resist than she’d previously thought. Can the bad boy with no interest in being reformed—and the woman who has no interest in reforming a bad boy—find forever together?
All I Ever Need is You by Bella Andre is the final Seattle Sullivan book and focuses on Adam Sullivan. I cannot adequately explain how much I love these Sullivan books on audio. Eva Kaminsky is such a great narrator, and I’ve just gobbled these up. While All I Ever Need is You is not my favorite Sullivan book, it’s still a great contemporary romance.
Adam is the last Seattle Sullivan to find love, but he’s okay with that. He’s not looking for love and forever. He likes to keep his relationships on a superficial level. I have to say, I get a little tired of the hero who isn’t looking for anything serious but always has women interested in him. But even still, I did like Adam. He is a nice guy, and Adam is respectful to women. And when he meets Kerry, he is immediately attracted to her.
Kerry runs a wedding planning business and she is VERY good at it. She wants the happily ever after, and although she is attracted to Adam, she also knows that he isn’t that. Although she is initially resistant to Adam’s flirtatious, she does end up getting together with Adam. But the plan is just for one night (not my favorite storyline). Clearly that isn’t how things end up.
Kerry was a fun character. I liked Kerry, and I also felt bad for all the pressure on her shoulders. It’s a lot of work running a business, and on top of that she is dealing with her sister which adds even more. I love how helpful and playful Adam and Kerry are with each other. It was amusing to see Adam falling for Kerry but, of course, he doesn’t realize it. Also, match-making Sullivans are awesome.
I am really excited to see Bella Andre beginning to set up the New York and Maine Sullivan stories to come. I am so EXCITED! So, while All I Ever Need is You isn’t my favorite, and isn’t particularly memorable, it still left me wanting MORE Sullivan stories. Especially on audio.
