Publisher's Summary

With The Look of Love, best-selling 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.

(NOTE: Explicit language, very steamy sex scenes...and lots of emotion!)

Short & Sweet!

Great start to sweet & fun series! This was a good "fluffy" kind of read, with a lot of steam too! The characters were very likable. The Narrator was ok, not my favorite but good enough to make me finish this in one sitting. Worth the credit if you like a sweet romance.

Great find! Romantic, Sweet with serious Heat!

I just get so excited when I find a new author. Bella Andre is a wonderful new find. I am so hooked on this series now. It's Hot, Hot, Hot. Not to mention Chase is so sweet and caring. He has 5 other brothers and two sisters. I can't wait to meet all of them. (Smile) I see more books in the future. Did I say I have down loaded book two already. This had everything I like in a good romance novel. A good story line, great characters, sexual tension with some Heat and to top it off a great narrator.

A total cheese fest...

I got this book because of the many great reviews it had but I was so disappointed. Poorly developed romance. I believe in love at first sight but these two barely spoke (just had lots of sex) and in 48 hours were madly in love, saying I love you and considering marriage and babies. Oh please!!! And Chase was an unrealistic mAle. He spoke like a 13 year old boy with his first crush. One more time I would hear the word lovely in the story and I would burn my IPhone (not really but I imagined it). Way too cheesy!!!

Narrator: Eva Kaminsky is a reader not really a narrator. A narrator is supposed to add emotions and intensity to a story. But she just read the story aloud. Barely any difference in tone between characters and she sounded kind of young. She would be better as a YA narrator. The reader made a relatively short short drag like a never ending book. I had to speed up the voice so that I could finish it.

Be warned: only get this book if you like really cheesy, unrealistic but hot Harlequin type stories that are predictable from the beggining.

What a flaming disappointment!

I LOVE romance; it's my favorite genre. I'm a voracious reader. I had high expectations for this book (and series)....and found it to be a significant let down. Pacing dragged. Percentage of pages devoted solely to sexual encounters between hero and heroine was excessive. The final "big disaster" was desperately rushed such that it fell flat.

Much of the disappointment is because of choice of narrator-- nasal intonations came and went (dissolving my patience), emotion lacked, male voices grated, and it simply wasn't a good fit with the book.

The book did have strengths: setting, sensory details were rich, lovable hero (even if his motivations were weak upon occasion).

I'll probably try one of Andre's newer Sullivan books, as I wanted so much to love this first in the series.

Never Again

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

A plot that wasn't so predictable. 75% of the story the main characters were haviing sex here there and everywhere.

What was most disappointing about Bella Andre’s story?

The sex scenes just got boring and nauseous.

Would you be willing to try another one of Eva Kaminsky’s performances?

No - too breathy.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

The descriptions of the Sullivan family.

So Dissappointed...

This was the first time I read/listened to a book by Bella Andre. I took a chance based on all the good reviews. I was so disappointed. I could barely find the story in the midst of all the sex scenes. I like reading happy romances and falling in love just as much as the next person. But this story was so improbable. The amount of sex that was had in 3 days. I'm not a prude but I didn't get a chance to like the main charachters. I speed through it to find out what happen with the ex. I'm sad I didn't do what I normally do and just try one book before I bought another in the series. The 5th book was on sale and based on the reviews I took a chance and bought it before the end of the sale. Now I don't see myself listening to it. I'm not sure the narrator helped things. She read so slowly that it dragged things along also. First time a review has failed me.

A cottoncandy listen, very sweet but yummy

I hadn't heard of this author before so I took a chance and I'm so glad I did. If you're in the mood for an easygoing light listen - handsome guy meets a damsel in distress then sets about rescuing her but falls in love with her instead then this is your kinda book.

Worth a credit? Yes it was entertaining and I'm off to listen to book 2.

this makes ya wanna......

What made the experience of listening to The Look of Love the most enjoyable?

I knight in shining armor is every or most girls dream. There is actually people like this just everyone is wondering where they are!

What other book might you compare The Look of Love to and why?

I don't know

Which character – as performed by Eva Kaminsky – was your favorite?

Marcus

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Marcus held the baby for the lady to take pictures.

Any additional comments?

Worth the credit and more. It is nice to have a feel good story that doesn't spend half the book with bad attitudes or something bad happening. I like stories like this every once in awhile.

Loved this book!

Would you consider the audio edition of The Look of Love to be better than the print version?

I loved this so much that I had to continue reading the series. I can't wait for the 3rd book to come out so I can find out what happens! The narration was great and spot on!
