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.

    Ah I feel like this series, or this narrator will be featured in an upcoming Q Recommends! 😀 I’m not a fan of the one night only type romances much, but it sounds like this was a really sweet read, and at least Adam sounds wonderful for just being a nice guy and respectful to women!

      Haha! I think you’re right! I want to do a Q Recs post for romance series about families. I’m not sure what to actually call them though. And The Sullivans is perfect for that!

      I also want to do a Q Recs post on my favorite romance audiobooks.

      Adam is definitely a nice guy, so that’s good. But seriously, those one night only tropes are not my favorite. Even so I really did like this.

      It’s just a little hard to believe. That this guy has all these gorgeous women available to sleep with. But it was handled well, I think. And I cannot wait for the next set of Sullivan cousins stories.

    Oh man. I need to get caught up with these. I know quite a few men like that in real life. It seems to be the thing. If they aren’t looking women are all over them. Well. When they’re looking that seems to be the case too. lol

      I’m almost completely caught up. I just have one left, but I’m nervous to read it! The one about Mia Sullivan. It’s a second chance love story. They aren’t my favorite for some reason.

      Do you really know guys like that? I don’t have a ton of guy friends so maybe that’s why I’ve never met a man like that.

    I’m not a lover of the one night stand trope either but this sounds fun and I love the historic restoration job! I can see why this wouldn’t’ be a favorite but the fact that a not so favorite plot is still enjoyable definitely is a good recommendation for the series. I’m looking forward to getting started!
