I read pretty much anything, from fantasy (City of Stairs by Robert Jackson Bennett) to romance (Bared to You by Sylvia Day) to classics (Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad).  The only genres I don't read are self-help and comic books/graphic novels.

The Look of Love (The Sullivans, #1) by Bella Andre

The Look of Love - Bella Andre

27/6 - I'm a little embarrassed to admit it, now that I've read my friends reviews, but I absolutely loved this. I completely understand their complaints with the book - possibly the worst case of instalove ever, the stupid idea of opening the book with an info dump, and more sex than plot - but none of that mattered to me because Andre immediately hooked me with Chase's instant attraction to Chloe. I would liken it to a girl being in love with a guy who's commited multiple crimes and she knows it, but she can't help loving him anyway, despite all his flaws. I'm that girl and this book is that guy and I fell in instalove with this book. My only problem with this book (obviously not that much of a problem) was that I wanted it to be longer.

My mum finished this at breakfast this morning and I picked it up after lunch this afternoon (I had to finish Beautiful Sacrifice first, you want to talk about bad books, read my review of that one). It took her about 10 days to read it, I only needed six hours. She wasn't all that impressed and said that's why it took her so long to read it, but then again she really enjoyedFifty Shades of Grey. She saw Christian as a tragic figure and felt sorry that he was unable to have a normal romantic relationship because of his troubled past (we had a few 'discussions' regarding Christian's personality and eventually agreed to disagree). I couldn't stand the book and wished a fiery death on the man, but found myself as in love with Chase as Chloe was. I loved this book so much I would pay money to own it (anyone who knows me, knows how rare that declaration is). Even though I've already read Marcus' story I think I might read it again so that I can read the series in its correct order.
