Sophie Sullivan, a librarian in San Francisco, was five years old when she fell head over heels in love with Jake McCann. Twenty years later, she’s convinced the notorious bad boy still sees her as the “nice” Sullivan twin. That is, when he bothers to look at her at all. But when they both get caught up in the magic of the first Sullivan wedding, she knows it’s long past time to do whatever it takes to make him see her for who she truly is...the woman who will love him forever.
Jake has always been a magnet for women, especially since his Irish pubs made him extremely wealthy. But the only woman he really wants is the one he can never have. Not only is Sophie his best friend’s off-limits younger sister...he can’t risk letting her get close enough to discover his deeply hidden secret.
Only, when Sophie appears on his doorstep as Jake’s every fantasy come to life—smart, beautiful, and shockingly sexy—he doesn’t have a prayer of taking his eyes, or his hands, off her. And he can’t stop craving more of her sweet smiles and sinful kisses. Because even though Jake knows loving Sophie isn’t the right thing to do...how can he possibly resist?

Although this is my very first book on The Sullivans series, I have no issue catching up with the characters and the story. To me, Jake is a very likeable character. He's independent, strong, responsible and know how to take good care of people. However he's not a person who is good at expressing himself, and probably partially due to ego too, he could not and also did not know how to tell Sophie about his problem. I enjoy reading how he tried to win over Sophie's heart within 7 days. And despite Sophie had been falling hard for Jake, I like the way she handled the whole thing with Jake. I like the Sullivan family too. They are caring, understanding and sweet!
The story is light-hearted and warm. I enjoy reading it very much. I rate it 3 out of 5 stars.
