 The Look Of Love , was an amazing book. It was hard not to like the characters in the book. Especially Chase, he’s the kind of guy that I knew I was going to love through the book. How can you not love him? He’s caring, loving, and loyal. I loved fact that the book didn’t only have romance but also bit of thriller, drama, made it even more interesting to read. In general The Look Of Love was type of book that you couldn’t help but 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?
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.

To be honest, title and cover was what captured my attention first. I was surfing through Netgalley, seeing what books they got and when I came across this one, I knew that I had to read it before even reading the summary. The couple of the covers look so happy, and the title The Look of Love, I knew that there had to be a story there. The background is also stunning. You could tell by looking at the cover that it was going be a love story. A love story that I had feeling I was going to enjoy. I was right; I ended up enjoying it even more than I thought I would.

Chase : I loved the relationship between him and Chloe, in a way. I knew that Chase truly cared for Chloe and even fell in love with her, but for while I wasn’t sure if she actually felt same for him. I felt like she was using sex, like an escape for what happened to her. It felt to me like she was only using him for sex. I could tell that there was a bond, an attraction between the two of them, even if she wouldn’t admit it. At first. I thought it was cute how Chase took care of Chloe, how he rescued and even offered her place to stay, not many guys would do that. I knew that Chase cared about Chloe, from the moment that he came across her on the road. I was hoping that eventually Chloe would see how much Chase cares for her, will let him in. Will let another guy in her life.

As for Chloe, I liked her character and in way I felt bad for her. I could see why she was hesitant about letting someone else into her life. To be honest, if I was in her situation, I would feel the same way. I felt proud of her by the end, it takes so much to overcome what she gone through, especially after her ex comes back, in attempt to hurt her once again. I was afraid for her, and hoped that Chase would show up, to rescue her. Once he did, I knew that Chloe was aware how much he cared for her. I was rooting for Chloe and Chase to get together through the entire book.

Emotions were described so well in this book, both Chloe and Chase. I enjoyed fact that story was told from both Chloe & Chase’s point of view, that way I got to know both of characters pretty well. I loved them both. I don’t think I would been able chose my favorite. But the emotions, the descriptions of everything, made the story seem so much more realistic and it had my attention the entire way.

The Look Of Love is a book I would recommend for everyone, especially if you in romance. You find yourself craving for more, even after finishing the book.
