The Look of Love by Bella Andre
The Sullivans Book 1
4.5 out of 5 Licks
THE LOOK OF LOVE introduces you to a fun and emotional contemporary romance series about the Sullivan family. Because when a Sullivan bad boy falls…he falls hard. And it’s forever.
Chloe Peterson is having a bad night. A really bad night. The large bruise on her cheek can attest to that. And when her car skids off the side of a wet country road straight into a ditch, she’s convinced even the gorgeous guy who rescues her in the middle of the rain storm must be too good to be true. Or is he?
As a successful photographer who frequently travels around the world, Chase Sullivan has his pick of beautiful women, and whenever he’s home in San Francisco, one of his seven siblings is usually up for causing a little fun trouble. Chase thinks his life is great just as it is—until the night he finds Chloe and her totaled car on the side of the road in Napa Valley. Not only has Chase never met anyone so lovely, both inside and out, but he quickly realizes Chloe has much bigger problems than her damaged car. Soon, Chase is willing to move mountains to love—and protect—her, but will Chloe let him?
Chloe vows never to make the mistake of trusting a man again. Only, with every loving look Chase gives her—and every sinfully sweet caress—as the attraction between them sparks and sizzles, she can’t help but wonder if she’s met the only exception. And although Chase didn’t realize his life was going to change forever in an instant, amazingly, he isn’t the least bit interested in fighting that change. Instead, he’s gearing up for a different fight altogether…for Chloe’s heart.
Everyone knows I’m a sucker for a series. I love reading books that are tied together and reconnecting with old characters throughout a series. The Sullivans is about 8 sexy siblings (men and set of twin ladies) finding the loves of their lives. Sometimes the first book in a series like this could drag or get jumbles together with the set up of the series and introducing several characters. The Look of Love does not have that problem. We get to know Chase and Chloe first and then we are slowly brought into the Sullivan family. Each sibling has a fun job and that helps make it easy to keep everyone separate.
Chloe’s past immediately has you crossing your fingers that she won’t fight the obvious attraction between her and Chase. The mark on her face left by the hand of her ex makes her even more determined to place men in the off-limits category. Chase isn’t swayed by her bruises or the fence she’s built around her heart. He keeps right on showing her that not only can he be trusted but that she is worthy of finding a real happy ever after.
Chase is sexy and cocky without being annoying about it. There is just enough fight from Chloe and when trouble from her past shows up the relationship between Chase and Chloe is tested but of course sees through. I loved meeting these characters and I can’t wait to see where they go while reading the rest of the series.
