Description

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 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.

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

“Sweet, charming, heartwarming and sexy in all the right ways." 5 stars Marybeth

    The second installment of the Maine Sullivan's is absolute perfection by Bella Andre. Zara and Rory are both artists/makers who have been agitated by each other for the full year they have known each other but is their agitation actually attraction. Rory finds Zara one morning after a particular rough text message from a family member and they both realize they can do things to help each other. Rory attends a family engagement party with Zara that ends in an agreement to date for one week but also the decision by both of them to assist each other with their emotional scars. Little does either of them know that, in reality, as Rory's family realized, their relationship began a year ago and not just the last week they believed. You will love the cameo by Ethan's family. You'll actually root for Brittany at the end. And Ruby will steal anyone's heart. I am already itching for the next installment of the Maine Sullivan's!

    Loving families are created and brought to life by Bella Andre. Most relationships are like a kiddy rollercoaster. There are ups and downs as well as twists and turns. Rory and Zara have close working quarters that create an atmosphere of playfulness and one line zingers. They each believe they barely tolerate one another, while others see their banter having underlying sexual tension. Until Rory helps Zara by being her date to a family event. The more time they spend together the more sparks began to fly. As a couple they question if love is enough to help people navigate the emotional baggage that is brought into a relationship. Zara demonstrates that our life experiences shape our personalities and can sometimes get in the way of true happiness. Rory has seen his parents relationship and what true love really looks like. The Maine Sullivan’s love as fiercely as the other branches of the family tree. Bella Andre continues to share the stories of this amazing family with all of us. Thank you for another outstanding story!

    The Sullivan romances are some of my favorites. I love the strong family bonds filled love, respect and devotion that carry over to each book. Rory Sullivan is a strong, confident and talented man with some vulnerabilities that make him irresponsible. Zara, the equally talented, fierce and protective woman has her own issues that she can't seem to release herself from that makes Rory want hold onto forever. This beautiful romance is fun with the wit and charm and sexy with its attraction and chemistry. And, it is tender and gentle with understanding and forgiveness. Have tissues handy!

    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 together...now 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!!

    I received this ARC for an honest review. This is my second favorite book from Bella Andre. My first is “The Look of Love”, but this story is a very close second. You have feel Bella’s passion for Rory and especially Zara. Zara creates designer frames for glasses, and Rory is a furniture builder. They met because they both rent warehouse space in the same building. Rory and Zara met on her first day there because according to Rory, “Zara parked in his spot”. They fought everyday since then. Zara received an invite to her step sister’s engagement party to Zara’s ex-boyfriend (who cheated on Zara with her step sister). Zara is upset and got drunk at work. Luckily, Rory found Zara and took her to his house to let her sleep it off. Rory offered to go the party with Zara as her new boyfriend. Does sparks fly? What happens next??? Not going to tell you...You must read the book to find out. I DO recommend. This will go in my re-read pile.

    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*****

    I loved this book. Rory comes to Zara’s rescue. At first, they don’t really like each other. But wow, once they kiss the sparks sure fly. Love how they help each other heal, it’s so heartwarming. I highly recommend this book.

    Bella Andre has created a wonderful world with the Sullivans and this family is just freaking amazing! In the latest of the Sullivan Series (The Maine Sullivans), There Goes My Heart, we learn more about Rory who is wood artist creating amazing furniture and I just found him and his profession to be so sexy. Rory is a family guy with a heart of gold and lives in a wonderful lighthouse. He just made me all gooey. Zara is also an artist. She creates unique frames for glasses. She’s a bit quirky, strong and well, she has spent the past year sparing with Rory since they work in a shared warehouse. Rory, being the perfect prince charming comes quickly to Zara’s rescue when she finds herself in a bind and the story takes off from there. I won’t give any more details because you just gotta read the story. It’s a fast and fun read with family, snarky comments, crazy situations and crazy exs. If you’ve ever read Bella Andre before you know she writes sweet romances with characters that overcome personal odds. This is another great Sullivan read that I’ve fallen in love with. Please note that you can read each Sullivan book as a standalone, but I think once you read one, you will want to binge on the entire family. I received an Advanced Reader Copy of this novel. I am voluntarily and freely providing an honest review.
  • Another wonderful addition to The Sullivans series!
