KISS ME LIKE THIS by Bella Andre (Morrison's Book #1) #NewAdult #Review @bellaandre

From New York Times bestselling author, Bella Andre, comes a New Adult contemporary romance series about The Morrisons!

Sean Morrison, one of six siblings and the top college baseball player in the country, is reeling from a heartbreakingly painful loss. Nothing seems to matter anymore…until the night Serena Britten unexpectedly ends up in his arms.

Serena is a world-famous model who has only ever wanted to be normal, even though her mother has always pushed her to become a superstar. Though it isn’t easy to try to leave everyone and everything she knows behind, Serena is determined to enroll in college. More than anything, she wants to turn her love for books into a new career that she actually loves. Only, she never expected to meet someone like Sean on campus—or to be instantly consumed by their incredible chemistry and connection.

But when the pressures of her high-profile modeling career only get bigger and more demanding, will it make living a normal life as a college student—and falling in love with the hottest guy on campus—impossible?

(Note: Serena was a supporting character in JUST TO BE WITH YOU, part of “The Sullivans” series, and Smith Sullivan from COME A LITTLE BIT CLOSER makes an appearance in this book! KISS ME LIKE THIS is a full-length, standalone New Adult contemporary romance novel of 400+ pages/100,000 words and is intended for readers 18+.)

Bella Andre is taking the New Adult World by storm with KISS ME LIKE THIS, the first book in a new series that follows six siblings, The Morrison's.  If you are a fan of the Sullivan Family, you are going to LOVE the Morrison's, especially baseball bad-boy, Sean of the dreamy green eyes.

I swear, it only took me a few pages in to fall in love with Sean Morrison, so when Serena and him first meet at the frat party, I could so understand how she could have such feelings for him in such a short period of time.  He is just....Amazing!  Funny, Smart, Stinkin Hot as all get out, and just a Good Guy! And I also love that his parents names are Mike and Lisa, cause those are mine and my husbands names...Thought that was adorable!

Serena, who we met in the latest Sullivan's romance, JUST TO BE WITH YOU, has escaped from under her "Momager" and is now at Stanford, trying to keep a low profile, and missing out on all the fun college experiences, because she is afraid of rejection, and afraid that word will get back to her mother about any "exploits", even as small and insignificant as they can be. The poor girl can't even have pizza without it getting leaked to the rags.  But once she meets Sean, things start looking up, as not only has she found someone that makes her feel things she has NEVER been able to feel before, but he respects her and just wants to see her smile.  

I have to say, Sean and Serena are one of my favorite NA couple to date. You just have to love them and the way they "get" each other from the beginning, and that special something they have that caused your heart to jump and the butterflies to flutter every time they are around each other.  I LOVE these two and I LOVED this book!!

I have been on a NA kick for a couple of weeks and I have to say, Bella transitioned herself right into this New Genre, and I can't WAIT for the rest of the series.  The Morrison's are a tight-knit family, who genuinely love and care for one another, and have become more protective and closer after their mother passed a few months back.  Each sibling will have their own demons to work out, and I know Bella will not disappoint...AT ALL!!
