I love the Sullivan series and this is my favorite story to date. I wasn't sure I would like the voice over artist but she did a great job bringing these characters to life

Oh how the mighty have fallen. When the most stubborn of Sullivan siblings falls in love, does the world hear it? Why yes, loud and clear! Thanks to Bella Andre, we all get to revel in the comeuppance that rightly belongs to Alec Sullivan. Thankfully it's a win-win, for us and for him.
You Do Something To Me is Book 3 for the New York Sullivan series - now 17 large in Bella Andre's over-arching Sullivan world. And joyfully there are birthdays and weddings to bring the whole lot of them back together for reappearances which will delight readers who have remained faithful to the series line.
Alec is an uptight jerk, the product of having to grow up to quickly and keep a iron-like rein on his emotions from too early an age. Devastated from losing his business partner, he finds out about the daughter and heir no one was aware ever existed, least of all her. Cordelia, is sweet and intelligent and highly perceptive. She and Alec have a connection that, like most Sullivan love tropes, is magical and instantaneous. And that isn't bad - except Alec fights it tooth and nail the entire way. Somehow Cordelia, unlike her many predecessors and even his family, is able to strip away his veneers and find the "real Alec" which helps him heal not only himself but the once thought irreparable tear in the family fabric he has with his father. Somehow that was my favorite story line - watching patience, love and fear chip away at decades of resentment and anger to rebuild that oldest of bonds. But don't think this a lackluster romance - because Bella takes this steamy read into the dirt, literally. Alec and Cordelia burn up the sheets, sofas, gardens, beaches, airplanes - everywhere.
Eva Kaminsky does a stellar job narrating the story - breathing life into both male and female characters and keeping a cadence and pace that helps move the reader along through angsty emotions and internal monologues. Her pitch is perfect during dialogue scenes and captures the sexy sensuality of the romance scenes.
