My Ode to The Look of Love

The Look of Love (The Sullivans, #1)Title: The Look of Love
Series: The Sullivans
Author: Bella Andre
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Synopsis from GoodReads:
With THE LOOK OF LOVE, bestselling author Bella Andre introduces you the Sullivan family. In this fun and emotional contemporary romance series, when a Sullivan bad boy falls...he falls hard. And it's forever. 

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.

My Ode to The Look of Love

For Chase, Love Chloe

We met on a deserted road
Rain and darkness all around
I was running, I was scared
Didn't want to be found

You picked me up
You took me in
When I was feeling low

You thought maybe 
I was the one
You'd show me love
You'd take it slow

I thought that I could
get away, oh I tried
But you refused
to let me go

I needed to prove that
I could be strong
And stand on my 
own two feet

While you were solely
intent on proving
We were meant
to meet

You used your talent
You used your lens
Taught me to see
beauty in the world

You used your body
You shared your soul
Made me believe I could
have - no, deserved the love
I dreamed of as a little girl

Slowly you peeled
away all my armor
And allowed the
real me to shine

It only took your
look of love
for me to believe
that you were mine

Bella Andre will make you believe the old adage that dreams really can come true. I thoroughly enjoyed my introduction to the Sullivan family with the courtship between Chase and Chloe. When it's the real thing - you have The Look of Love. :)
