I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Bella Andre. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.

Millions of readers/listeners have fallen in elve with the San Francisco and Seattle Sullivans. Now get ready to fall head over heels for the New York Sullivans!

World-renowned artist Drake Sullivan doesn't paint women. Ever. Not when he knows all too well just how destructive painter/muse relationships can be. But on the day Rosa Bouchard walks onto the cliffs outside his Montauk cottage, Drake is so captivated that he can't stop himself from bringing her to life on canvas.

Shocked and horrified by the nude photos of her that have just hit the Internet, reality TV star Rosa's every instinct is to run from her Miami home and hide. After driving all night, she ends up in Montauk, New York, where she doesn't know a soul and plans to lie low until she can figure out how to deal with the media firestorm - and her own mother, who seems all too happy to sell out Rosa's happiness for more fame, more fans, and more money. The very last thing Rosa expects is to find, and to fall for, a sinfully sexy man like Drake Sullivan.

Drake has never felt this way about anything he's painted...and he's definitely never felt this way about a woman. When they kiss, everything but sweet, breathless desire melts away. But can he convince Rosa to trust - and to love - again after such a devastating betrayal?

Where does Now That I've Found You rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It's one of those books that I would listen to more than once. Especially as I listen to more of the Sullivan family.

Have you listened to any of Eva Kaminsky’s other performances before? How does this one compare? 

Ms. Kaminsky has a very pleasant voice. It allows you to listen to the story she is telling and forgetting everything around you. You forget time - she pulls you in to the world of the Sullivans. So you may find it hard to get any work done if that was your plan.

Any additional comments?

The author has created a story that makes you feel a part of the Sullivan family. You can feel the love they have for each other. They are very welcoming to those that can be considered extended family. Ms. Kaminsky does a great job of getting that feeling across. Your experience is so different when you listen as opposed to reading. If you've not experienced this family before, this is a great place to start.

Because we can't see the story play out, like a television series or a movie, we rely on the voice of a narrator to do that for us. They add another dimension to a story that you yourself are reading. This narrator made it a very pleasant experience. But she's also made it very difficult for me. I liked my experience so much that I don't know about actually reading a Sullivan book. What I may have to decide is which of the author's books would I read and which ones would I listen to. Our author and our narrator make a great pair.

I've never really discovered what New York State has to offer and I just may have to change that. This is one of those books that I can see listening to as I walk around Montauk New York and picture where some of the characters may have walked. See if there's an art gallery around where Drake may have shown his work. If I have the urge to travel it's because the author has done such a great job in creating a world that you find you too want to explore. The difficulty would be in planning to be at a certain place when you hear a certain scene. What you might enjoy may have someone else wondering if you're crazy. But it's your enjoyment of the story that's what's important. The ending will leave you looking forward to book two - I know that I can't wait.
