"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."MY REVIEW:
I am in love with the Sullivans. The Sullivans are a large, one-of-a-kind family that’s made up of 8 magnificent and unique siblings.
Chase – Photographer (The Look of Love)
Marcus – Winery (From This Moment On)
Gabe – Firefighter (Can’t Help Falling in Love)
Sophie (Nice) – Librarian (I Only Have Eyes For You)
Zach – Auto Shop Chain (If You Were Mine)
Ryan – Professional Baseball Player (Let Me Be The One)
Smith – Actor (Come A Little Bit Closer)
Lori (Naughty) – Choreographer (Always on My Mind)
If you are looking for something SWEET and SEXY then The Sullivans companion series by Bella Andre is absolutely perfect for you. Each novel in the companion series is unique, just like the siblings. However, there is one thing that all of the novels have in common: THEY ARE ALL AMAZING!
THE LOOK OF LOVE:
A great new series by a great new author (Well...new to me at least)!
The first book in The Sullivan’s companion series by Bella Andre, The Look of Love, is a sexy, sweet adult romance. It’s Nora Roberts meets Erotica. I am a huge Nora Roberts fan so when I compare Bella Andre’s work to hers it is meant as a huge compliment. The Look of Love was a light, fun, sexy story that was easy to read and captured my attention from the first page.
I have a feeling that I'm really going to enjoy The Sullivan family. 8 siblings. 6 gorgeous, successful males. 2 beautiful twin sisters. And the best thing about this series is that when you complete one novel you have closure; you aren't left hanging. So now that I have finished Chase and Chloe's story I am really looking forward to moving on to Marcus and Nicola's story in From This Moment On.
The Look of Love was about the second oldest Sullivan, Chase. He is a photographer who has spent the last few years having meaningless affairs with models and actresses. Then he meets Chole who has spent the last few years in a horrible relationship. When Chase comes to Chloe’s rescue sparks fly. But will Chase get Chloe to open up her heart and trust him?
Although Chloe has been though some tough times, overall I would consider this a happy, feel good story. It made me laugh and smile. A LOT. There is one scene that I can guarantee will have you laughing your butt off. One word: Bathtub. Even if this book hadn’t been good, it would have been worth reading for that one part alone. Luckily, that’s not the only good part. This entire novel is fabulous!
I gave The Look Of Love by Bella Andre 4 STARS (3.5 STARS). It’s passionate, sensual, sexy, and sweet. I highly recommend this novel to fans of Nora Roberts.
