I am so thrilled to be a part of The Look of Love Blog Tour, hosted by BookTrib and Media Muscle. I am a huge fan of Bella Andre and The Sullivans Series, and am so happy that this fantastic series is now becoming available in print. Even better, the new print edition comes with never-seen-before content!

The Look of Love (The Sullivans, #1)Series: The Sullivans #1
Category/Genre: Adult Contemporary Romance
Publisher: Harlequin Mira
Publication Date: 5/28/13

Expanded Edition! More Story! More Sullivans!Fans of Bella Andre's Sullivan Series will love this long-awaited print edition of THE LOOK OF LOVE. It features a longer, more-detailed story with all the emotion and sensuality that readers love. Not to be missed!

Sometimes one look is all it takes

Chloe Peterson has vowed never to make the mistake of trusting a man again. Her reasons are as vivid as the bruises on her cheek. So when her car skids off a wet country road straight into a ditch, she's convinced the gorgeous guy who rescues her must be too good to be true.

As a successful international photographer, Chase Sullivan has his pick of beautiful women. He's satisfied with his life—until he finds Chloe and her totaled car on the side of the road in Napa Valley.

With every loving look—and every sinfully sweet caress—the attraction between them sizzles, and Chloe can't help but wonder if she's met the man who may be the exception to her rule….

I read The Look of Love in January. Here's what I had to say... 
So, I've finally met the infamous Sullivans siblings. Well, just Chase, but still.  Since I finally started reading Adult Romance again over the summer, readers have been recommending Bella Andre's books, this series in specific. I'd only read one of her books Love Me, and adored it. I wanted to more of her books and to learn what the fuss over The Sullivans is all about.

I get it now. What Andre delivers in The Look of Love is a sweet romance with a lot of heart. Chase Sullivan was an honorable hero. A man who will go out of his way to help Chloe, offer her anything she needs, and....falls head over heels, instantly in love. It was sort of nice to see the man fall in love before his leading lady. And boy, he sure gives Chloe a multitude of reasons to trust him, like him, and fall in love right back.

The Look of Love was just right. The storyline moved quickly, necessary because of the length, but all the pieces seemed to fall well into place. I truly enjoyed the story and found it to be a great escape.

Favorite Quote:

  Chase Sullivan hadn't realized that tonight his life was going to change forever.
  But it just had.

  And, amazingly--shockingly--he wasn't the least bit interested in fighting that change. Instead, he was gearing up for a different fight altogether...for Chloe's heart.  ~18%
