~Review: The Way You Look Tonight (The Sullivans #9) by Bella Andre~

As a very successful private investigator who has caught many a cheater, Rafe Sullivan believes true, lasting love only happens once in a blue moon. But when he returns to the family lake house, the sweet girl next door is all grown up…and she may be just the one to change his mind. 

While Brooke Jansen is happy with her quiet, small-town life, she secretly longs to experience something wild. So when her favorite "Wild Sullivan" moves back after more than a decade away, she can't stop wondering if being bad is really as good as it always seemed…and just how long it will be before she can find out. 

It's not long before a summer fling spirals into something much deeper. Can Rafe put his faith in love for once, or will he end up losing the best thing that's ever happened to him?

Overall Rating:  5 Rockin’ ★★★★

Brooke has crushed on Rafe Sullivan since the first time she laid eyes on him as an eight year old.  He was one of the Wild Sullivans that owned the cottage next door to her grandparents.  Rafe was the one that seemed more alive than any of the others.  She really missed having them live next door.  Now that her grandparents had passed away and left the cottage to her, Brooke lived there full time.  She had left her high paying, prestigious position working in Human Resources in Boston to follow her grandmothers and her dream of creating beautiful chocolate truffles.   The last thing she expected was to see Rafe Sullivan drive up on a motorcycle.

Rafe needed a break from his business and his sister has just the thing, their old family cottage.  Their parents had to sell the cottage in the Cascade Mountains when his father lost his job.  The cottage on the lake was for sale and it was going to be his and his families again.  It was just the thing he needed to get away from his hectic life in the city.  His family had spent many summers in that cottage together, playing, swimming and loving life as a family.  When he arrived at the cottage he was surprised at the beautiful woman that threw herself into his arms.  He could not believe that this was little Brooke Jansen that had been his sister Mia’s friend.  The feelings that he was experiencing seemed wrong, but she was something else.

Brooke offers Rafe a place to stay while he cleans up and renovates his cottage.  His problem is he doesn’t know if he can keep his hands to himself or if he will succumb to the beautiful, sweet Brooke.  Read this book and you will enjoy a love story that will not be easy to forget!
