About this ebook

"There went my heart! Bella Andre has taken two people, lost and alone, and made them perfect together. She had my heart beating faster with every touching moment." 5 stars

Rory Sullivan, a renowned artisan woodworker, has no plans to fall in love anytime soon. Especially not with Zara Mirren, who shares a converted warehouse space with him in Bar Harbor, Maine. While she is a brilliant maker—the eyeglasses frames she designs are practically works of art—everything else about her drives him bonkers. The way she’s always whistling cheesy pop songs off-key. The way her half-drunk cups of coffee litter every available countertop. And especially the way he can’t take his eyes off her whenever she enters a room…or stop thinking about her after she leaves.

Zara loves everything about her career—designing and manufacturing bright, fun glasses frames fulfills both the creative and technical sides of her brain. The only downside to coming to work is bumping into irritating, far-too-handsome-for-his-own-good Rory Sullivan…even if she secretly enjoys the zingers they throw at each other. On the plus side, thinking up new ways to torment Rory on a daily basis has helped Zara stop dwelling on the fact that her ex-boyfriend cheated on her with her stepsister. 

But when Zara learns that her ex and her stepsister have just become engaged, she’s doubly stunned by Rory’s suggestion to go as her pretend boyfriend to their engagement party, in a one-night truce where they’ll be a team rather than adversaries. Only, when it turns out that the sparks between them disguise a deeper passion—and bigger emotional connection—than either has ever known, will both Rory and Zara end up losing their hearts to the last person they could have imagined?

THERE GOES MY HEART is part of Bella Andre's USA Today and New York Times #1 bestselling series about The Sullivans. While it can easily be read as a stand-alone story, you'll likely enjoy reading the other books too. 

"Another great read from this author! There Goes My Heart has you laughing out loud at times, but other times you are reaching for the tissues." 

"I absolutely adored this amazing read! There Goes My Heart was sweet, funny and emotional. The sparks and and banter fly, and it is impossible not to feel the intense pull of attraction. A delightful read that gives you all the feels."

"I can't get enough of this series! One thing I love about Bella’s stories is how sweet, sensual and romantic they are. This series has deep family values, and they love so completely it’s hard not to wish you were one of them."

"There Goes My Heart was sweet and romantic and hot and sexy and I had a blast reading Rory and Zara's journey to love!"

Time to return to Bar Harbor, Maine to visit with the Sullivans. I just love a big family saga. This family will steal your heart because they have support, love, and respect each and every one of their siblings along with their parents. All members of the Sullivan family are not only great looking but their beauty is not just skin deep. Every character that Bella Andre creates in this series has strength, courage, beauty (not just on the outside), and innate sense of caring/helping others when the need arises whether the character is a Sullivan or not. There Goes My Heart by Bella Andre is Rory and Zara’s story. For a year now Rory and Zara have been irritating/sparring with each because they thought they really disliked the other but, in reality they were beginning to fall for each other without realizing it. Rory is a master woodworker while Zara designs very fashionable and unique eyeglass frames. Rory finds Zara one morning pretty tipsy in their buildings’ breakroom. Turns out Zara was reacting to her step-sisters engagement announcement to her ex-boyfriend. Rory learns several personal things about Zara and decides to step in to help. They decide to be a pretend couple to show Zara’s step-sister and ex-boyfriend that she has moved on. As Zara and Rory spend time with each other that night and the next week they both begin to realize that they are falling for each other pretty hard. Both, Rory and Zara have some pretty deep scars that they must face and overcome before their HEA is possible. Will they face those fears to find their forever happiness or will the wall of fear stay standing? Read There Goes My Heart to find out. I love this series and total recommend any Bella Andre book for a fun read/escape into another world where HEAs are always possible. I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review. If you love big family sagas, hot alphas, strong/beautiful women, then you will enjoy this book by Bella Andre. 5 stars*****

There went my heart. Bella Andre has done it again. She has taken two people, lost and alone, and made them perfect together. She had my heart beating faster with every touching moment. I gushed. I sighed. I cried. So many wonderful emotions packed into this wonderful story of two talented Maine Makers. Rory Sullivan creates gorgeous works of art out of wood. He pours his heart and soul into each and every piece leaving nothing for a woman. He couldn't. He wouldn't. There was no way he was getting involved with a woman. He couldn't handle it. Not again. Zara Mirren has a shop in the same warehouse as Rory Sullivan's woodwork. She creates frames for eyeglasses, beautiful, unique, special. She keeps herself busy, protected, not seeing the world as she creates a way for others to see the world through her designs. Rory and Zara have been bickering, nagging, complaining, antagonizing each other for the past year. They are oil and water, under the same roof, crossing paths poking each other. The day Rory walks in on Zara crying everything changes. Rory acts without thinking. His heart is in control and he doesn't even know it. What a rush!! I thoroughly enjoyed watching their armors tarnish and crack. I loved how they thought they could prevent the future when they couldn't control their pasts. I have known so many Rorys and Zaras. To be honest I have been a little like them and maybe that is what is the best about this book. The reader can identify. The characters survived giving us all hope for a better, brighter tomorrow. Second time around was even better.

ARC for honest review with no compensation There Goes My Heart is book 2 of the Maine Sullivan’s and book 20 in the Sullivans series by Bella Andre and a swoon worthy read about Rory and Zara! Zara and Rory have been working in the same artisan building for the past year, she makes designer glasses frames and he does woodworking and getting on each other’s last nerve. Lots of bantering, bickering and sparks but both are down on love and HEA. Zara moved to Bar Harbor over a year ago after her sister and her boyfriend at the time decided to get she received notification that they are engaged so she decided to get tipsy and spill on what happened to Rory. He decides to go with her to the engagement party for moral support and they become a “pretend couple”...except with sparks flying, a deeper passion, undercurrent that’s been ignored and an emotional connection that’s been ignored they might just turn the “pretend” into a “real” couple and find their HEA when they least expect it! Funny, steamy, bantering, tears and emotions galore makes you want to keep reading til it done!!
