Alec Sullivan has always believed he has it all. A billion-dollar private aviation business. A penthouse apartment in New York City. Beautiful women who know better than to expect him ever to fall in love. And great siblings for whom he’d do anything. But when Alec's business partner passes away and leaves everything to a daughter Alec never knew about, in an instant everything in his life turns upside down…all because of Cordelia.
Cordelia always thought she was perfectly happy with her life. She owns a garden store she loves, lives in a pretty little cottage in the same town as her adoptive parents, and figures there’s plenty of time to meet Mr. Right. But she never counted on becoming the surprise heir to a fortune…or on meeting a man like Alec Sullivan. A shockingly sexy billionaire who makes her heart race and melt all at the same time.
Neither Alec nor Cordelia plans on getting any closer than they have to. Only, how can either of them fight this kind of heat, this depth of desire? And when Cordelia needs Alec’s support, it’s pure instinct for him to be there for her. But when it’s her turn to help him confront his deepest pain, will Alec let her in? Or will he push her away, just as he’s pushed away everyone who's loved him for the past thirty years…
YOU DO SOMETHING TO ME is part of Bella Andre's New York Times and USA Today #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.

Swoon! Alec Sullivan is totally swoon-worthy and just another in a long line of Sullivan leading men that I love!
Little did Alec know when his business partner, who was closer than a father, passed away unexpectedly, his life would forever change. Turns out that there was a long lost daughter...enter Cordelia Langley.
Cordelia grew up with loving parents, a simple life and everything she thought she wanted. She always knew she was adopted but it never bothered her, since she had everything she needed. Her plants and nursery, her simple life...enter Alec Sullivan....
This is a love story. It is about redemption from the past, letting go of regrets and grabbing on to the future you never knew you wanted. Once again, Bella brings the characters to life with her beautiful words, capturing the same spirit we have come to love from all of the Sullivans. Can’t wait for Harry’s HEA.
A Mixed Bag
I always enjoy Bella Andre’s books. She’s one of my go-to authors so I was unprepared for the disappointment that crept over me as I read “You Do Something To Me”. The plot is strong and entertaining and the pacing dragged early on but picked up about a quarter of the way in. The main characters, Alec Sullivan and Cordelia Langley, are a mixed bag. Alec is not especially likable at first but grows on you as his depths and complexities are revealed. Cordelia on the other hand, is seemingly perfect. With no flaws, she’s too patient, too sweet, too forgiving, too smart, too beautiful. She’s too much.
Also, I can’t recall a Bella Andre book more in need of some scrupulous editing. As annoying as they are, typos seem inevitable in the world of ebooks but not so for mangled sentences, redundancies, trite/stale phrasing and fluffy prose. Each of the last 5 or 6 books I’ve read contained two or more uses of “beyond a shadow of a doubt”. I expected better of Ms Andre. Even though it’s technically correct, I’m still puzzling over her use of the British term “bespoke” instead of the more recognizable “tailor-made, custom made, or custom tailored.” Why? And since I’m on a rant, potatoes are root vegetables. Since they’re usually planted 10-12” deep, they must be “dug” to be harvested.
All in all, #17 in The Sullivans series is an okay read. Though I must admit, the love scenes are off the charts hot, which is all good.
Bella Andre's "Sullivan Series" gets better with each book! As a writer she is an amazingly fantastic author. Here is a book you don't want to pass up.
