Novel Review: If You Were Mine (The Sullivans, #5) by Bella Andre

Rating (Out of 5): ~4-4.5
Genre: Adult Contemporary Romance
Publisher: Harlequin Mira
Release Date: 2012
Spoilers?: No.

Goodreads Synopsis:

Finding forever…with you 

The last thing Zach Sullivan wants is to take care of his brother's new puppy for two weeks. That is, until he meets the dog trainer. Heather is bright, beautiful…and she just might be the only woman on earth who wants nothing to do with him. 

Heather Linsey can't believe she agreed to train Zach's new pup, especially since his focus seems to be more on winning her heart than training his dog. Having sworn off love, she has vowed never to fall for a charming man. But Heather's determination to push Zach away only fuels his determination to get closer—and the sensual and emotional connection between them grows more undeniable. Will the biggest Sullivan bad boy of all tempt Heather into believing in forever again?

The Cover:

Much like the other covers in this series, I think it's very pretty, and the couple works. None of them really stand out to me, although I suppose the scenery works well for this book.


This is definitely my favorite of the series so far.  Maybe I just have a thing for mechanics?
Zach is the mechanic Sullivan, owning a franchise and running the one in town. He gets pushed into taking care of his brother’s puppy for a couple weeks, and signed on to taking the dog to Heather, the animal trainer in town. Heather is intent on not being interested or impressed by Zach, but he immediately feels the attraction and wants to do something about it.
This book was so fun. The banter between the two was great, and the attraction was obvious. Heather had a bad experience in the past and so was hard to Zach, but Zach pushed, and he proved that he was there for her and he wasn’t giving up. His growing attention to the dog definitely helped, too.
There was a conflict near the end, of course, where Zach let his worries about his family let him push her away, but Heather pushed him back.
I love the two of them together, and I loved the humor they both had. The sexy stuff was nice, the chemistry was great, the writing—all of it made this go by so fast. And now I really want the next one.
I can’t get enough of these books.
