I have loved every one of the Sullivan stories so far, and I was so excited for Flynn and Cassie’s story. Although this is book 19 in the series, it’s the fourth spin-off, which revolves around the Maine Sullivan’s. Flynn, an award winning Hollywood screenwriter, becomes the guardian of Ruby, his infant niece and must escape in order to gain privacy for the both of them. Cassie, a candy shop owner, agrees to let Flynn and Ruby stay in her cabin, and the moment she sees him, their attraction sizzles. I don’t know what it was, but something about this story fell a little flat for me. Don’t get me wrong, I thoroughly enjoyed the book, it just didn’t wow me like the others did. I’m definitely looking forward to the next one.
Another heartfelt and endearing love story that read in one day. It doesn’t have as much passion as some of the other Sullivan’s but still a connection that could not be ignored.
Flynn Stewart, the award winning screenwriter, has his life turned upside down when the death of his sister makes him the parent to his infant niece, Ruby. To escape the scandal that ensues from this even Flynn connects with Cassie Sullivan through her cousin Smith Sullivan. Cassie fortunately has a cabin in the woods in Maine that is perfect for Flynn to escape to while he continues to write the screenplay he is on deadline for but also to get away from the paparazzi and a nanny trying to sell his story. Little does Flynn know that trying to write and learning how to parent could change his life again by meeting Cassie.
Cassie loves her life as a candy-maker and while she is immediately taken by Ruby but also a little taken by the mysterious Flynn. Cassie and Flynn each have some battles to work through, especially when Flynn decides to actually confront his past but the story that comes out of this will leave you in tears.
You will love hearing more from the Sullivan family and will absolutely fall in love with Ruby and the entire Maine Sullivan's!
Love, love, love this story! We finally get to meet the Maine branch of the Sullivan family. They are no less talented, but a little less well known. Cassie is full of love and goodness, but is a strong woman who knows what she wants. She is a candy artist extraordinaire. Flynn is a famous Hollywood screenwriter who is fighting the demons of his past. What he doesn’t realize is he is no longer the same person he was as a teenager. Becoming an instant parent to his 6 month old niece changes his lifestyle and his focus on the future. The undeniable chemistry between Cassie and Flynn moves their relationship forward. Deciding they are worthy of each other’s love takes a little longer. Bella Andre creates a world I want to live in everyday. Thank goodness there are so many Sullivan to write about, it promises many more romantic, heartfelt, and loving stories to come!

ARC for honest review with no compensation
Your Love Is Mine is book 1 in the Maine Sullivans and book 19 in the Sullivans series by Bella Andre and a great start to another series!!
Cassie Sullivan candy maker extraordinaire, sunshine and rainbows type of person agrees to let a friend of her cousin Smith who needs to get away from Hollywood use her cabin...what she doesn’t expect to find is a hot, sexy man with an adorable baby girl and attraction like she’s never known before...
Flynn Stewart a Hollywood screen writer has it all...women, awards and money galore but nobody knows about his past...until he is notified that is sister is dead and she has a baby girl, Ruby. With the Nanny trying to sell his story and the paparazzi wanting to know who the baby’s mother is, he knows his past may be catching up to him and he needs to leave Hollywood to get his and Ruby’s lives sorted out. With the help of his friend Smith Sullivan who sends Flynn to his cousin Cassie’s place in Maine.
Can Cassie show Flynn that sometimes the past needs to be faced and overcome so life can move forward and maybe find the HEA that’s been missing all along...
Absolutely amazing. The story was perfect. I loved how Ruby started to change Flynn’s life before he left for Maine, but watching the transformation after meeting Cassie was amazing. There was laughter, sorry and lots of love. I have loved reading the Sullivan series but this book is definitely at the top of the list as one my favorites.
Another wonderful Sullivan family to fall in love with!!! I have been with this author from the beginning of the Sullivan’s and I am never disappointed. This is the Sullivan family of Maine and the first introduction to Ethan and Beth Sullivan and their five children. The first story belongs to Cassie Sullivan.
Cassie’s famous cousin, Smith Sullivan, has a friend who needs to escape the craziness of Hollywood for a while. He has adopted his deceased sisters baby and the paparazzi are just too much. So Smith offers him the use of Cassie’s cabin in the Maine woods.
When Flynn first arrives at the cabin in the woods, he is full of tension and dark thoughts. Cassie immediately becomes a beacon of light in his dark life. But can he spoil her goodness with his secrets and his past?
Just like she always does, Bella gives us a strong woman who loves her man and isn’t giving up! Cassie falls for Flynn and Ruby and she will hold on no matter what.
Love this entire series, every single story is it’s own unique HEA.
I received this ARC for an honest review. I have been a fan of Bella Andre for many years, and she has never disappointed me. This story is spin off of the Sullivans’ books. This series is about the Maine Sullivan’s. I enjoyed this book. This book is about Flynn and Cassie. Flynn is a screen writer. He specializes in horror films. He adopted his niece,Ruby, after his sister died of an overdose. The media was driven to get the scoop behind the adoption, so he decided to get away. His friend Smith Sullivan arraigned for him to rent Cassie’s cabin for a few weeks. When they first met, Flynn was standoffish and rude. Cassie is an candy artist. Flynn was having a terrible night with Ruby. She kept crying and screaming. In a near panic, Flynn called Cassie for help. This the start of Flynn’s and Cassie’s relationship. He started to trust Cassie. When he met Cassie’s mom at the restaurant, she fell in love with Ruby. I’m not going to give any more away. YOU MUST READ THIS BOOK TO FIND OUT WHAT HAPPENS.
This story touched me in away most books only wish they could. I can't think of another author that has written a character that I can identify with so deeply. I get Flynn Stewart. I understand his actions. I feel his pain. I relish in his success. But most of all I am so happy that he let himself love. Everyone deserves real love, even those that have never experienced it in their past. Maybe them more than most. Flynn is the perfect candidate to become a member of the Sullivan extended family. How many of us wish we could be part of the family?
I can't believe that I am jealous after reading this story. Why can't I be a Sullivan??? I want to be part of a close knit family. I want to be surrounded by the deep love and devotion. Distance does not matter. Honest, love and acceptance make up this strong family no matter where they live. After all it was Smith Sullivan that suggested Flynn Stewart escape to Bar Harbor. Escape to Cassie's cabin. Find peace.
Cassie has never seen one of Flynn's movies but that doesn't stop the connection. She knows he is there to get away from it all, to get to know Ruby, a baby he has adopted after her parent's tragic death. No one knows anything else. Flynn does not share his past, his present, his heart.
Flynn can't deny the connection but he has choose not to act on it, or so he thinks. Your Love is Mine is a amazing love story. Your Love is Mine is a story of failed resistance. Your Love is Mine is a story of love conquering all, tearing down walls, catching someone when they fall. Your love is mine is what we all want even when we are afraid to admit it. We all have a little bit of Flynn in us when what we actually need is to have a little bit of Cassie in us.
3/13/2019 I can't believe it but this story was even better the second time around. I wonder how long it will be before I pick it up again.
This was a sweet story. We meet Cassie in the other books of the Sullivan's. She bakes candies and other creations. Flynn just finds out his sister has dies of over dose but has a baby girl name Ruby. Flynn needs to write his new screen play so he takes Ruby to his friends Smith Sullivan cabin to lay low with having a baby to care for. Cassie takes one looks that Rudy and Flynn and it's love at first sight. It's hard to fight there feelings for one another, so Cassie tells Flynn she loves him but does think his good enough for her. Will Cassie change her mind when she learns of Flynn past well who he really is ?
Flynn never seen life coming at him. Running from his past, but his sister gifts him the gift of life. Moving away from the Adult living in LA to the comfortable family living in ME. Flynn meets Smith’s cousin Cassie, a candy maker, and finds love, life and happiness. This is a wonderful story.
I have enjoyed all of the Sullivans for different reasons, some more than others. So far, Cassie and Flynn are my favorites. I’m not sure why I like them so much. Cassie is exactly what you expect, open, honest but not a pushover. And who wouldn’t be infatuated with a man so in love with a baby but out his comfort zone. This was an easy read and didn’t want it to end. If the rest of the Maine Sullivan’s are as interesting and entertaining as Cassie and Flynn, their stories can’t come soon enough!
