The Look of Love by Bella Andre
Narrator: Eva Kaminsky
Length: 6 hrs and 58 mins

Date Read: May 2013

Genre: Contemporary, Romance

With THE LOOK OF LOVE, bestselling author Bella Andre introduces you the Sullivan family. In this fun and emotional contemporary romance series, 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 he never met anyone so lovely, both inside and out, but he quickly realizes she has much bigger problems than her damaged car. Soon, he is willing to move mountains to love—and protect—her, but will she 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

First Thought when Finished: The Sullivan’s have hooked me with The Look of Love!

Story Thoughts: The Look of Love was a strong beginning to what is shaping up to be a wonderful series (I don’t know why I waited so long to try these). Going to say up front that stories about women who are strong enough to make a break from an abusive situation always tug at my heartstrings. The fact that Bella took time to write the story (with follow through) was fantastic. The timeline of the romance between Chloe and Chase was a little “quick” for me but I found myself rooting for them to work it out. I am glad that I heard we will see them in future books in the series.

Character Thoughts: The Sullivan’s are going to be a crew to contend with if Chase is anything to go on. Chase was strong, compassionate, creative, and knew his heart. I love when the guy is the first one to fall and Chase stole my heart when he did. Chloe was a lot guarded (understandably)so she was harder to warm up to but I was pulling for her to work through her issues. This was a great romance for Chase and Chloe, I felt it matched them as a couple.

Audio Thoughts

Narrated By Eva Kaminsky/ Length: 6 hrs and 58 mins

Eva did a great job with Chloe’s voice and emotion. The pacing was also excellent in this narration. I wasn’t a huge fan of Chase’s voice but overall this was a pretty decent audiobook.

Final Thoughts: Can’t wait to delve into the next book in The Sullivans series.

  1. I’m in love with this series, only started this year, but they are fun to read and full of HEA. Loved Chase but I think you’re going to like even better of some other hot men in the family.

  2. You might have to go back into rafflecopter. I just realized I tweeted that it was by Lori Foster.

    Oh this sounds like a great swoony kind of book. I just love those. And I love a sweet guy with a heart of gold!
