Movie star Smith Sullivan can’t afford any distractions. He’s staking his entire reputation on his new film...but he can’t stop thinking about Valentina Landon and the fire he sees smoldering just beneath the surface of her cool exterior.
Valentina isn’t averse to sensual pleasure, or even to the idea of finding true love, but as a Hollywood business manager she’s watched too many smart women fall for actors...only to be torn apart when the fairytale comes to its inevitable end.
But when intense weeks together on set turn their heated attraction into red-hot flames of passion, Smith knows he has to find a way to convince Valentina to let him get a little bit closer. Close enough to completely steal her heart...the way she’s stolen his from the start.
From the very beginning of this series I knew that Smith Sullivan was something special. I couldn't wait to read his story and when it was finally announced, I may have screamed YES! out loud. Okay I did do that. I can honestly say that his story was so worth the wait. Because he is the rock of the Sullivan household, his story filled with so many emotional moments as we learned more about why Smith is so important to his family. These touching moments were witnessed firsthand by the woman that falls in love with him as she learns that Smith is more than just a famous actor. He's a person first who means so much to so many people. Valentina tried her best to not fall for Smith but lets be honest, after getting to know the real Smith, she was a goner. I enjoyed the journey of them falling in love. There were so many sweet moments between the two of them that showed just how perfect there are for one another.
I'm giving Come A Little Bit Closer a rating of:
As always we get to see what the other members of the Sullivan clan are up to. I love that they are all mentioned in each others books since family is so important to all of them. Their family continues to grow with each book and it's great to see that. They are such a wonderful family that it's no wonder that everyone falls in love with them. I know I have and am so happy to know that I'm not the only one. Another great job for the author Bella Andre!
