Millions of readers around the world have fallen in love with The Sullivans—especially Smith Sullivan, the movie star with the heart of gold.

Get ready to join Smith and his new wife Valentina in the novella SWEETER THAN EVER as they embark on their life together with the sweetest, sexiest, most surprising honeymoon ever. Seven days and seven nights of just-wedded bliss that will sizzle, make you laugh out loud…and tug on your heartstrings. After all, true love—and family—are what the Sullivans do best!

If you’ve been following my blog, you probably know that I love Bella Andre’s Sullivan series. I’ve read them all, and I’m always excited to get my hands on the next one. So naturally I couldn’t pass up Sweeter Than Ever, a little novella about Smith and Valentina from Come a Little Bit Closer.

Honestly, Smith’s story is not my favorite of the Sullivan series, but I do like him. Smith is a fan favorite. I mean, he is this totally nice guy who happens to be a movie star and he’s gorgeous. What’s not to love? Anyway, Sweeter Than Ever lets us take a peek into Smith and Valentina’s honeymoon. They go to Maine, and are staying in a quiet, out-of-the-way house to hopefully get some peace and quiet. Smith being a movie star means they have to deal with the whole paparazzi thing.

It’s a really cute story. It’s so great to see Smith and Valentina finally married. I loved that they decided to honeymoon in Maine. It’s totally the kind of honeymoon I would want. I also loved that a little puppy showed up. Puppies make everything better, am I right? The story did get very sappy, but hey they are on their honeymoon. If you can’t be sappy then, when can you? Some bits of the plot were a bit out there, though. Like running into one of Valentina’s ex boy-friends. I mean, really?

But even still, I really enjoyed spending a bit more time with Smith and Valentina. And I cannot wait to get my hands on the next Sullivan book!

    It does sound like a sweet story. And yes! Puppies make everything better! I would love for all books to have them. 😀

    I do like getting a look into the happily ever afters. Jill Shalvis did it with Chloe and Sawyer in Lucky Harbor and it was super cute. Too bad this wasn’t your favorite couple but it sounds like even with that you enjoyed it. And yes puppies make everything better! I love a puppy in a romance!

    I’m listening to one of hers right now 😀 Aws on the puppy showing up. I had a laugh over the random ex. It’s crazy how that can happen sometimes. I was on a cruise in the middle of the ocean and ran into someone I knew in college 8 or so years earlier and hadn’t seen since. I was like really now? Of all places? lol
