My Rating: 5 ★★★★★
For the first time in print, experience Bella Andre’s bestselling Sullivan’s series:
Sometimes one look is all it takes!
Chloe Peterson 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….
This is a wonderful start to a series. I really enjoyed reading it. It’s well written and flows nicely. I was hooked from the start and didn’t put it down until I had finished it.
This is a sweet romance about finding and accepting love. It’s also full of steamy sex. It moves along quickly and the issue with the ex-husband isn’t overwhelming. The main focus is on the relationship growing between Chase and Chloe.
Chloe has issues to deal with, trust being one of them. She also has an abusive ex to get away from. Her confidence grows and she comes to be the strong person she was down deep with the help of Chase. Chase is patient, attentive and loving towards Chloe. Chase is the hero we all want to find.
I recommend this to anyone looking for a steamy romance with not too much angst. I’ll definitely read the next in this series.
