THE LOOK OF LOVE

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?

FROM THIS MOMENT ON

For thirty-six years, Marcus Sullivan has been the responsible older brother, stepping in to take care of his seven siblings after their father died when they were children. But when the perfectly ordered future he’s planned for himself turns out to be nothing but a lie, Marcus needs one reckless night to shake free from it all.
Nicola Harding is known throughout the world by only one name – Nico – for her catchy, sensual pop songs. Only, what no one knows about the twenty-five year old singer is that her sex-kitten image is totally false. After a terrible betrayal by a man who loved fame far more than he ever loved her, she vows not to let anyone else get close enough to find out who she really is…or hurt her again. Especially not the gorgeous stranger she meets at a nightclub, even though the hunger – and the sinful promises – in his dark eyes make her want to spill all her secrets.

CAN’T HELP FALLING IN LOVE

Gabe Sullivan risks his life every day as a firefighter in San Francisco. But after learning a brutal lesson about professional boundaries, he knows better than to risk his heart to his fire victims ever again. Especially the brave mother and daughter he saved from a deadly apartment fire…and can’t stop thinking about.
Megan Harris knows she owes the heroic firefighter everything for running into a burning building to save her and her seven-year-old daughter. Everything except her heart. Because after losing her navy pilot husband five years ago, she has vowed to never suffer through loving – and losing – a man with a dangerous job again.


I've hoped for this for so many years, waited for someone to come along whom you could finally love more than your family, someone who would turn you inside-out and toss you off your path,' His mother looked positively gleeful in the face of his misery. 'Someone just like Nicola for you to blow it with.

Looking for the good in people is never stupid.  

You never told me how the story ends, Gabe."
She held her breath, waiting for his response.
His expression held all the love and desire she knew he felt for her.
"It doesn't.”


Meet the Sullivan Family. 
Six men and two women with a single mom who couldn't love them more. 
Smith - The Hollywood Actor
Marcus – The Winery owner
Chase – Photographer
Ryan – The Pro baseball player
Zach – An Owner, auto shop chain
Gabe – Firefighter
Lori – The Dancer
Sophie - The Book Nerd/ Librarian

The first book in this incredible series "The Look of Love" starts off telling us the story of Chase and Chloe. Chase doesn't think much about women in general. He's always been able to get a warm body whenever he's needed it. Then he sees Chloe stranded on the side of the road and he can't help but rescue her. This starts their intense friendship that Chase isn't sure he can let go of even if Chloe isn't ready for more.
This was my very first book by the famous Bella Andre even though I've been hearing her praised for years. I just never got around to reading any of her books. When I heard about these books, I decided to give it a try. I'm a sucker for the family romance series. I'm so happy I did. I'm completely hooked on the Sullivan's and couldn't wait to read more.

The second book in this series "From This Moment On" tells the story of Marcus and Nicola or Nico as her many fans know her as. Marcus just got out of a relationship with the woman he actually had planned to marry but soon realizes what a mistake that would have been. Marcus decides to go back to what he knows best, one night stands. He goes to a nightclub to find the girl he will love just for one night, no families, no personal information, no drama. He is determined. Then he meets Nicola and all bets are off. He doesn't even know who she is which she thinks is perfect. She can't believe how lucky she got that the one guy she wants to take home doesn't know what a celebrity she is. She hides from the paparazzi and quickly ducks the cameras. They soon make it into the limo. That's when she starts to freak out. I mean who is this Marcus person and how does she know who he really is, after all she has learned the hard way no one can be trusted?
I again fell in love with these characters so well imagined by Bella Andre. Marcus was strong but vulnerable. Nicola was famous but not at all what you'd expect a pop star to act like. I was really surprised how much I connected with this story since I loved the first so much. I didn't think it was possible to like this one more but it happened.

The third book in this series "Can't Help Falling in Love" was about Gabe Sullivan and Megan Harris. OMG!! Seriously, I think these books get steamier and better as I go. I don't know how the author did it but she surprised me yet again. Gabe is a firefighter. Now anyone who is not thinking of a shirtless hotty has a much better control of their imagination than I do. Firefighters are my thing. Gabe gets called away from a family event to go to a burning building and help out. He quickly assesses the dangers and goes in with his fellow firefighter to save as many people as possible. He learns from a neighbor that a woman and her child are stuck inside upstairs. Gabe struggles to get to them in time. Their story quickly gets underway when we learn that neither can be with the other as Gabe doesn't date survivors he's saved and Megan lost her husband to a scary job and won't put her daughter through that loss again. But do their hearts agree with their heads?
