"Love just pours off the pages! This series is incredible. If you haven't started the Sullivans yet, you are missing out!" Guilty Pleasures Reviews
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.
While THE LOOK OF LOVE can easily be read as a stand-alone story, you'll likely enjoy reading the other books, too.

This is my first Bella Andre book, discovered courtesy of my blog partner, and it doesn’t disappoint! The Look of Love is on the surface a fun, sexy and lighthearted summer love story. But analytically it’s about so much more because the true love story isn’t Chase and Chloe, it’s Chloe learning to love and trust herself.
Meet Chase, a gentle, intelligent, kindhearted man who flawlessly captures natural human beauty and emotions through the lens of his camera. One stormy night he’s driving towards his older brother’s country winery when he sees a car stuck in a ditch and a terrified woman beside it…
Meet Chloe, she’s a survivor. After learning the hard way that money doesn’t guarantee happiness, and rich people aren’t necessarily good people, she escapes. She starts to learn how to live again as a free person, to live for herself, in a small apartment, working long hours in a diner to try and make enough money to live and start quilting again. Until everything goes wrong. Bruised, terrified, and defeated, her car skids off the road into a ditch during a storm. It seems like nothing is going right on the worst day of her life, until the mysterious, rich, handsome stranger stops his car on the side of the road and tells her to get in.
Bella Andre expertly and honestly conveys the abused mindset with Chloe, subtly conveying the self blame, inability to trust your own judgements, the intense, crippling fear, the denial, the loss of self and non existent self confidence. Bella conveys this all, making The Look of Love powerful, emotive and a revolutionary perspective on abuse survivors.
Chase’s instinctive understanding of Chloe and what she needed from him was beautiful to read, as was Chase and Chloe both learning to fight battles together, as a team, instead of Chase wanting to protect her from everything, and Chloe being too afraid of losing her control to risk accepting help. The complex emotions, the fiery, explosive chemistry, the beautiful surroundings immersing you entirely in this beautiful love story of hope and trust and healing… This is a story that will stay with you long after you read the final page.
This love story was about finding trust again. The story was a slow, sensual coming together of two people. It was your classic love story. It lost one point because for me the story was too slow.
Boring & predictable :(
Won't be reading the full series as it was just a little boring for me.
