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 have been wanting to try out this series for a long time, so I jumped at the chance for a review copy.  The Sullivan family is HUGE - there are six boys and two girls, so I know there will be a lot to read about.  The Look of Love takes on one of the brothers, Chase, a reknown photographer.  When he finds Chloe on the side of the road in a rainstorm his protective instincts kick in and he would do anything take care of her.  Chloe on the other hand, is ready to keep running.  She can't trust men and isn't sure what to think of her apparent knight in shining armor.

This was a decent start to the series with lots of background early on about the family.  I liked how other members of the family were brought in on occassion so I could get to know them a little along the way.  I hope to see more of Chase in future books as well.  Some of the story dragged just a little - too much "I love you but I shouldn't" for me to really get into the characters.  There were also some amazingly hilarious scenes that had me almost laughing out loud.

If you like a nice happy contempory story with a beautiful ending and more to look forward to, I suggest you start this series.  It looks to be a great one.

Moments of Beauty
J.B. Heller
Publication date: March 23rd 2017
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance
Ugly. It’s the only word to describe my upbringing. It drove my need to capture every moment of beauty I could find. A glimpse of a mother’s love. A feather floating in the breeze. A ray of sunshine emerging on a rainy day.  And then there was her, Eliza Quinn, she signified everything I didn’t deserve. She showed me more beauty than I ever thought possible. And I took it all, despite knowing I was going to leave her, and never come back.  Leaving her five years ago was my biggest mistake, and my greatest regret. Now I need to make amends. I thought leaving her was the hardest thing I’d ever have to do, but that was before I knew I had to win her back.Add to Goodreads
