Important: This post shows our opinion, and our opinion only. We would like to note that people can (and probably will) like these books for the same reasons we didn’t like it. It’s not a flame, we don’t have the intention of bad-mouth the author or their books. It’s a review, but it is not under the Reviews category because we couldn’t finish reading or took a long time to do it. Sometimes a book that one of us liked can be featured here because the other didn’t like it. Again: it is just our opinion.
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.
What a disappointing book. I wasn’t expecting a lot, so it’s not about being frustrated, but this book didn’t reach even the low standards I had! Chloe is an idiotic character, trying to stand-up for herself after an abusive relationship and ending being just a lovesick and dominated girl in the end.
Chase is the possessive kind of character, wanting, needing, having, loving at first sight, full of experience, taking care of Chloe’s broken confidence, blablabla! And there’s instalove, which I can’t stand anymore.
The Look of Love didn’t fascinated me even in the sexual aspect! I thought everything was boring or just unbelievable. I mean, how old was Chase when he was fucking around with models? Twelve? Seriously. I swear I’m not a prude, but what the hell? And I’m not even talking about the over gratification in some scenes. Let’s get real, please?
Some people told me the books in this series get better as they were published, but I won’t take a chance. This was my first and last book about the Sullivans, thank you so much!
