For thirty-six years, Marcus Sullivan has been the responsible older brother, stepping in to take care of his seven siblings after their father died when they were children. But when the perfectly ordered future he’s planned for himself turns out to be nothing but a lie, Marcus needs one reckless night to shake free from it all. Nicola Harding is known throughout the world by only one name – Nico – for her catchy, sensual pop songs. Only, what no one knows about the twenty-five year old singer is that her sex-kitten image is totally false. After a terrible betrayal by a man who loved fame far more than he ever loved her, she vows not to let anyone else get close enough to find out who she really is…or hurt her again. Especially not the gorgeous stranger she meets at a nightclub, even though the hunger – and the sinful promises – in his dark eyes make her want to spill all her secrets. One night is all Nicola and Marcus agree to share with each other. But nothing goes as they plan when instead of simply tangling limbs, they find a deeper connection than either of them could have anticipated. And even though they both try to fight it, growing emotions – and sizzling attraction – keep drawing them closer together. Close enough for them to wonder if stealing one more secret moment together can ever be enough?
5 Great Lines from From This Moment On by Bella Andre
“You like doing that, don’t you?’
‘Yes, I like kissing you.’
‘No,’ she said, ‘lifting me off my feet. Carrying me around. Pulling me down to kiss you whenever you get the urge.’ She turned to him with a mock glare. ‘I think it goes hand in hand with the telling me what to do stuff.’
He didn’t let go of her hand as he lifted his to run the back of one knuckle down her cheek. ‘You like it, too.”
Nicola had to move closer to Marcus, had to take his hands in hers and hold them over her heart as though she could give hers up for his if it meant she could take away all of the pain he’d had to deal with at such a terribly young age.
“You could never be just any girl. And it has nothing to do with the fact that you’re famous.’ His hand tightened on hers. ‘You’re very special, Nicola. Very, very special.”
“Do you remember telling me how you’re willing to put up with the pressures of fame if it means you can play your music for people?’ When she nodded, he said, ‘Making sure my family is happy has been worth any tradeoff.”
“I’ve hoped for this for so many years, waited for someone to come along whom you could finally love more than your family, someone who would turn you inside-out and toss you off your path,’ His mother looked positively gleeful in the face of his misery. ‘Someone just like Nicola for you to blow it with.”
