"You know you've read a wonderful story when you can't stop smiling afterwards. Your Love Is Mine is such a great start to the Maine Sullivans!" 5 stars
Flynn Stewart, an award-winning screenwriter, seems to have the perfect Hollywood life. Until his dark past comes crashing back when he learns his long-lost sister has passed away—and he has a six-month-old niece named Ruby. Flynn vows to give the little girl who now means everything to him a better childhood than he or his sister ever had. So when he finds out that Ruby's nanny is trying to sell their story to the press, he takes his niece as far from Hollywood as he can.
One of seven siblings in Bar Harbor, Cassie Sullivan has always been grateful for the love and support of her tight-knit family. Because of them, she had the courage to create a successful candy confection business. So when a friend of her cousin needs a place to stay with his baby for a few weeks, she’s happy to offer him her cabin in the woods. But from the first moment she meets Flynn and Ruby, her heart is lost to the gorgeous man and his adorable little girl.
Flynn has never met anyone as cheerful and open as Cassie. Instantly drawn to her, he finds himself telling her things about his past that he’s never spoken of to anyone—things that make him certain he could never be worthy of her. Only, Cassie isn’t about to let the pair who have stolen her heart go without a fight—using all the light, love, and laughter she can give them.
Will the nightmares from Flynn’s past continue to haunt him and and steal away the joy of a future with Cassie? Or will Cassie’s love, and the support of her big family, be powerful enough to help him face his long-buried demons and conquer them at last?

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Bella Andre takes us to Maine for the start of her new contemporary romance mini-series. There, we meet Cassie, who comes to the rescue when her cousin’s friend, Flynn, needs a place to stay. While he avoids her charm at first, it’s not long before sparks begin to fly. We love how this is so much more than a romance novel: alongside the exciting chemistry between Flynn and Cassie, we’re drawn into a heartwarming, relatable tale of family, resilience and overcoming the past to create a better future.
Sullivan’s in Maine.
Continuing on with the Sullivan clan we move to Maine. Cassie is a confectioner. She makes things using candy. She lives in Bar Harbor (can you hear the accent!!). She has a cottage that she cleaned all up - it’s where Smith and Valentina stayed on their honeymoon. Keep it, sell it, rent it? She’s not sure yet.
Flynn is a screenwriter and friends with Smith Sullivan in LA. Flynn’s real name is Joe, he grew up in the mid-west to parents who were alcoholics and drug addicts. He and his sister Sarah grew up close as to protect one another from their parents. Joe changed his name and headed to LA. unfortunately his sister Sarah fell into the same rut as their parents. He received a phone call from someone who was told to call this number. Sarah died but has a six month old daughter. The nanny is about to leak a story to the tabloids. Smith tells Flynn to head to Maine, his cousin Cassie has a place for him.
Flynn is very cautious. Cassie is very friendly, cheerful, kind, compassionate. Flynn hasn’t seen that in, well like forever. Cassie helps out with Ruby as does her mom so Flynn can have a couple hours of writing time. Cassie is the sunshine that shines everyday. Soon Flynn lets his guard down and opens his heart.
Only had one little issue with this story. Ruby is more like a one year old vs a six month old. It was fun to watch Flynn literally be reborn. Reminded me of a caterpillar to a butterfly.
Bella Andre never disappoints! Another lovely story!!
This story kept me entertained. I enjoyed it until it got kind of cheesy at the end. Also, Flynn’s constant worrying over his past got annoying...especially since his parents were the screw ups, not him. I also found it weird that at 6 months old, Ruby was doing things that babies don’t usually do until they’re 9-10 months. I’d actually rate this book 3.5 stars, but I rounded up to be nice.
