The Look of Love

The Look of Love is the 1st book in the Sullivan family series by Bella Andre. From the author’s website.~
With THE LOOK OF LOVE bestselling author Bella Andre 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 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.

I actually started with Gabe’s book (book 3) and went back to read the first 2 books in the series after I totally fell in love with Gabe and all of the Sullivan family members. I loved how sweet Chase was with Chloe from the moment they first met. He could tell she had a run in with someone before he rescued her from a wreck on a rainy night. Yet he also knows he wants to do everything in his power to protect her and even find a way to make her his.

Chloe has little desire to ever trust another man after what she went through with her ex-husband. However, she is just as attracted to Chase as he is to her. His tenderness and caring help her to start falling for him, and even begin to trust him. The fact that they can’t stay away from each other only makes it easier for each to fall for one another. Chase knows and admits his feelings for Chloe very early on, and is willing to wait for her to trust and love him completely.

I love the entire Sullivan clan and loved seeing how Chase’s family totally accepted Chloe as a part of his life. Up next is for the Sullivan clan is From This Moment On, which is oldest brother Marcus Sullivan’s story.
