I love to read. I love all genres but romance in particular. The hotter and steamy and sexier book is the more I want to read it.
the determination one man has for the women he has found and loved at 1st sight
grest story good start to a series
The Look of Love is the first book of The Sullivans series by Bella Andre. I listened to this book in audio and loved every word. The narrator Eva Kaminsky does a fabulous job with these characters and this type of story. A lot of times a first book in the series tends to suffer with too much set up for the future books, but that was not the case at all with this book.
Chloe Peterson’s life is in for some serious changes. I absolutely loved Chloe. She got away from an abusive husband just to find herself in a ditch on a rainy night being approached by a stranger to offer a hand. She could shrink away and hide from life, but that just isn't her. Yes, she needs distance and to be careful, but she is strong and resilient. I loved how she balanced all this and came to terms with all that has happened in such a short time.
Chase Sullivan was everything you could want in a man. Hot? Oh yea! But, more importantly he is sweet, loyal, thoughtful, sexy, and patient. He acknowledges the connection between him and Chloe right away, but seeing she is skittish he bides his time and is just there for her. As a photographer he deals with high maintenance models everyday and he does it with kindness, but he is no pushover. I loved how he knew when to push Chloe and when to let her deal with things on her own and the internal monologue that came with making the decision of when to do what.
This book isn't hugely graphic when it comes to the sex scenes, but definitely hot. Again, the narrator did a great job narrating these scenes; not making them skeevy or cheesy.
In this book we get an introduction into the Sullivan family and begin to get to know the other members. I absolutely can’t wait to read/listen to their stories. This family comes across so “real”. Yeah, you have a sports star, an actor, a dancer, but even they are just one of the gang when hanging with the family.
Read or listen to this book! You can’t go wrong either way. You won’t be sorry and with any luck you’ll fall in love with this family as quickly as I did.
I like lots of different kinds of romance, but I prefer original plots and characters with some personality. I can usually even listen through when the writing has clear flaws. But this was possibly the least enjoyable book I've tried in years; it had little storyline and poor dialogue. The sex was steamy though, if that's all you are looking for in a romance novel.
Fewer cliches, more realistic characters and dialogue.
It sounded like melodramatic cliche after melodramatic cliche. Perhaps nothing could have saved it, but the narrator seemed to overplay much of the dialogue.
I read another in this series and really liked it; that was my first Bella Andre. Perhaps the series gets better after third initial book. But for me, this particular book wasn't worth a credit and I don't know if I'll waste another one on this author.
A 16 year old girl, maybe!!!

I'm so sorry I wasted my money and time. That's a couple of hours
i'll never get back.
Didin't even finish it
RIDICULOUS- STUPID- DUMB-WASTE OF TIME- COULD NOT LISTEN- AWFUL-HORRIBLE-RUNNING OUT OF WORDS TO DESCRIBE HOW DUMB THIS BOOK WAS.
Member since 2010 I suspended my account for a couple of months and audible incorrectly states I joined June 2015 crazy with 343 titles
No one I know.
No I only managed a couple of hours of this drivel.
She could not do much with the storyline.
Don't waste your credit unless you wish to listen to a story that is a total waste of your time. Sounds more like a fairy tale.
I'm embarrassed to have this in my library. Trite, stupid, patronizing. etc. etc. Couldn't be bothered wasting my time to finish it. I'm staggered that it has received so many good reviews.
I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!
This was the first book by Bella Andre that I've read although I've seen her books all over the web. I liked the book enough to want to listen to the next in the series, but I did have some issues with it. I really don't like insta-love type of books, I'd much rather read about a relationship that grows over time not ones that take a day or three. I really liked the first half of the book more then the second half because you actually read about Chase trying to woo Chloe and build trust between them. The second half was pretty much all sex then confrontation and sex then more sex.
I'm pretty sure that while this is written as a series each book can be read as a stand alone. I'm going to read them in order just to get the full effect of Ms. Andre's writing style. Looking forward to Marcus' story.
A good listen made more enjoyable by Eva Kaminsky's excellent delivery of the story.
I wrote my first book review on the p rebook about the parents because it was so amazing so I have to write my disappointed on this one. half the book was about sex! I don't like port but I love a well written story. it should have been titled sex therapy. I fast forwarded through half the book!
