Book Review: I Have Eyes Only For You

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 can he possibly resist?

I HAVE EYES ONLY FOR YOU is a very enjoyable book with a lot of character development that shows that one should never judge a book by its cover.  

Sophie's family has nicknamed her 'Nice' as she is one to color within the lines and has never objected to her brothers' protectiveness.  However when being nice isn't getting her the man that she has loved for years, she erases all those lines.

Jake has always loved Sophie but he has never felt as though he was good enough for her.  But when Sophie defies all expectations he is going to have to step up his game.

If I was to classify I HAVE EYES ONLY FOR YOU it would be as a sweet romance even though there is a lot of sex.  The sex scenes however aren't graphic and are really more about emotion then anything else.  I found this to be rather refreshing and enjoyable.  

I would recommend this book to lovers of romance of all ages.  The mesh of the vastly different personalities of Jake and Sophie keep the plot moving right along and before you know it the book is finished.  I would rate this book a 4.1.

*** I received this book at no charge from NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.  All opinions expressed within are my own.
