From New York Times bestselling author, Bella Andre, comes a New Adult contemporary romance series about The Morrisons!

“KISS ME LIKE THIS is pure Bella Andre magic—sweet, sexy and enrapturing as her books always are—but this time around it's got a good, healthy slice of New Adult edge to it that makes it even more fun to read. Don't miss this one!” ~ Jasinda Wilder, NYT bestselling author

"KISS ME LIKE THIS is an absolute must read for 2014 and had me obsessed until the very last page. Fans of New Adult will rejoice! Bella Andre is at her best, you'll laugh, cry, sigh, and yes probably swoon. This is the reason I read--for books that take my breath away." #1 NYT Bestselling Author Rachel Van Dyken

BOOK DESCRIPTION: Sean Morrison, one of six siblings and the top college baseball player in the country, is reeling from a heartbreakingly painful loss. Nothing seems to matter anymore...until the night Serena Britten unexpectedly ends up in his arms.

Serena is a world-famous model who has only ever wanted to be normal, even though her mother has always pushed her to become a superstar. Though it isn't easy to try to leave everyone and everything she knows behind, Serena is determined to enroll in college. More than anything, she wants to turn her love for books into a new career that she actually loves. Only, she never expected to meet someone like Sean on campus—or to be instantly consumed by their incredible chemistry and connection.

But when the pressures of her high-profile modeling career only get bigger and more demanding, will it make living a normal life as a college student—and falling in love with the hottest guy on campus—impossible?

(Note: Serena made an appearance in JUST TO BE WITH YOU, part of "The Sullivans" series! KISS ME LIKE THIS is a full-length, standalone New Adult contemporary romance novel of 300+ pages/90,000 words and is intended for readers 18+.)

But he didn't seem to need her to finish her sentence as he said, “I know. When you kiss me, it's like that for me, too.”

Cover:  Just the sort of sickly sweet cover that I love.  Unashamedly.

I'm a big fan of Bella Andre's adult contemporary series- The Sullivans.  I devour each book in that series.  So when I saw that Bella was venturing into the world of New Adult fiction, I was so excited- practically giddy.
Because New Adult fiction is something I've really been enjoying over the past year or so now.
And I wasn't disappointed.
I loved it.
Sean and Serena were adorable.  I loved how they each had their probelms, but together they helped each other through them.  They were each what the other needed.
Sean is grieving the loss of his mother- going through life and college numb.
Until he sees Serena dancing at a party and is immediately drawn to her.
Serena has gone against her mother's wishes.  Her mother wants a glamorous modeling and acting career for her daughter- living vicariously through her.
But that isn't Serena's dream.  Serena dreams of college and working with books in some way.
So that's what she does- enroling in college against her mother.
Being a celebrity on campus proves hard.  Until she meets Sean- who doesn't know who she is at first.  And even when he does- he just sees Serena the girl, not Serena the model.
I really loved this one.  A cute, feel good read.
I did love how there was no arbitrary angst or arguments.  No sily misunderstandings or splitting up and getting back together.  That is something that begins to grate on the nerves after a while.
So this made a really nice change.
I enjoyed seeing the cameos of a couple of The Sullivans.
I also loved having both Sean and Serena's points of view- I love it when a novel has that.  I love hearing from both protagonists.

4.5/5 stars.

Read from July 28 to 30,2015
