Successful photographer Chase Sullivan is in Napa Valley to do a photo shoot at his brother Marcus's vineyard. While most photographers are sticklers for the perfect background, weather, or accessories, Chase is a firm believer that the true magic of photography happens at unguarded moments. There has to be an emotional connection otherwise the shot is just cold and calculated with no real value. In his line of work beautiful women are commonplace and he's become a bit jaded but nothing prepared him for an encounter with a woman like Chloe.
Understandably Chloe is more than a little uncomfortable accepting Chase's help. Her ex-husband's attack took an emotional toll on her and if you've been attacked by a man who professes to love you then you aren't exactly chomping at the bit to trust another one. Fortunately, Chase is a good guy and honestly only wants to help her, though he doesn't exactly play fair by taking her to the guesthouse at the vineyard rather than the hotel like she requested. Chase realizes that Chloe is very special (even though she isn't `model beautiful') and fears that if he takes her into town he won't see her again. At first Chloe is extremely reluctant to open up to Chase about why she was on the road that night but as they get to know each other, and cave into their mutual attraction, she begins to trust him with the truth about what happened as well as other aspects of her personality, such as her love of quilting. While Chloe's determined to keep her relationship with Chase on a strictly friends with benefits level, Chase knows that he's in love with Chloe and he's willing to do whatever he has to in order to convince her to stay with him.
THE LOOK OF LOVE is a beautiful love story with a few surprises and many heartwarming moments. I was very impressed with Chloe and her choice to escape the controlling and abusive husband - so many women aren't that brave. Chase is the epitome of a sexy and supportive male but at times that seems to be in direct conflict with his desire for her. Bella Andre does a wonderful job bringing these characters to life and showing readers exactly what makes them tick. One of the things I really loved about this story is Chloe's love for quilting and how it plays into the rest of the story. I know, it seems simple but there's something endearing about how she uses her love of matching colors and patterns to help Chase with the models attire. This story has it all - raw passion, emotional connections, suspense, and a plain ole' fun element that makes it a delight to read.
THE LOOK OF LOVE is the first title in Ms. Andre's new SULLIVAN'S series. I'm definitely looking forward to learning more about Chase's siblings - especially the twins they've dubbed Naughty and Nice. However, after reading this story and coming to know some of Marcus' story I'm definitely looking forward to the next release.
The next book is this series, FROM THIS MOMENT ON (Marcus & Nicola), is due to be released in September 2011.
Chloe on the other hand, was recovering from an abusive relationship and was on a mission to become a strong, independent woman. The last thing she needed was a relationship!
What a great start to a new series! I'm cannot wait for book 2. This one is so close to my heart. "The Look of Love," and the hero Chase, reminds me so much of my husband. A man that, after knowing me just a few weeks, got down on his knees and asked me to marry him. And now, after twenty years of marriage, he still looks at me like I'm the most beautiful girl in the room. Like Chloe, the last thing I wanted was anything to tie me to the East Coast where we met. I was going to the Mid-west for at least two years to finish school. And like Chase, my husband understood my need for independence and to finish what I started. He supported me all the way and waited for two whole years for me to return.
I highly recommend this book to anyone wanting a sweet (and erotic) romance that will leave you sighing and bit restless to find your own Chase! :)
Thank you for reminding me why I married my man Bella!
