About this ebook

"This is Bella Andre at her finest! I love Elderflower Island, the bookshop, and Mari and Owen!" ~ 5 stars


All Mari Everett’s life, she’s had two secret dreams: To own a bookstore, and to reunite with her long lost father. But when he passes away unexpectedly and she inherits his home and business, the only way she can learn about his life—especially why he abandoned her when she was three and never came back—is by leaving California to take over his bookstore in London. 


Owen Sullivan lives and works on Elderflower Island, a close knit community in London where it’s impossible to keep a secret. It turns out, however, that Charlie Forsythe kept his daughter a secret from everyone for nearly thirty years. When Mari comes to London, Owen immediately falls for her. He’s never met a woman so intelligent, determined and honest. Not to mention so beautiful that she takes his breath away. 


Soon, everyone on the island—including Owen’s four siblings, parents and grandmother—is pitching in to help give the bookstore a fresh start. But as insatiable passion develops into love, will Mari and Owen be able to grab hold of their fresh start? Or will their pasts continue to cast a dark shadow over their chance at a brilliant future together in London?


"I loved Elderflower Island and couldn't put this book down! Mari and Owen's story is exactly what you hope for in a Sullivan romance." ~ 5 stars


"I loved how Bella Andre wrote about London! She brought everything to life so I could visit there without leaving home. Such a heartwarming story!" ~ 5 stars


"I adore the Sullivans! They love hard, laugh uproariously and live in the moment." 5 stars

I was really glad that we didn't lose that strong sense of family and friendship that comes along with the Sullivan clan. US or UK, the Sullivan bond is strong. I felt badly that Mari did not get to know her father as an adult. While it was really sad, it was nice she had some memories of him. I loved the way Mari embraced her adventure and made it a reality. I liked Owen, and felt their connection. His support of Mari's plans and dreams were sweet. I didn't get any feelings of intense passion from Mari and Owen's relationship. There was a slow, sensual buildup, but I didn't sense any heat behind it. I felt like the book focused more on Mari's father, Charlie, and his life on Elderflower Island, Charlie and Mari's lack of a relationship, and Mari's mother's inability to let go of the past. I felt that was truly sad for her mother to have the intensity of feelings about the incident with Charlie for so many years. I am looking forward to the rest of the London Sullivan's, which hopefully will include a book about Mari's stepmother Carson. I voluntarily read and reviewed the Advanced Reader Copy of this book received from the author.

Bella Andre knows how to write romance. A reader can't go wrong with As Long As I Have You. It might be love at first sight but the author has a way of taking the now and making it WOW. I am so stoked that I get to fall for another Sullivan family, even better I get to go home to England without leaving the comfort of my chair. Mari has been a little lost since her day left her at age 3. She dreams of one day going to England and seeing her dad, discovering the why's. One phone call closes that door but opens another door. Without a solid plan, Mari flies to the Elderflower Island, London, England to a bookshop she now owns. The only way to get to know her dad is to take over the shop and flat. Mari is staring at a disaster left by an ill man. A man she didn't know. A man that never told the villagers of his daughter in America. Owen Sullivan walking into the shop begins a journey to become whole. It takes a village to raise a child, even a full grown lady that has never been whole. The characters are a joy. The author has painted a wonderful picture of the village and its quaint shops. My mouth drooled over their afternoon teas and dinners. My heart beat loudly for the growing attraction between Mari and Owen. Their relationship was a fantastic way to learn more about both of the characters and to see how well they fit. I can't wait to add more of the London Sullivans to my library.
