Review: The Look of Love by Crystal Bright

You can’t fight love…There’s only one thing MMA fighter Gunnar Wells is more devoted to than his career, and that’s his mother, “Queen” Elizabeth. An elegant African American woman who adopted Gunnar and his two white brothers, Elizabeth was there when they needed her, and they’ll do anything for her. For Gunnar, that means running her hair salon when she suddenly falls ill. And if that’s not awkward enough for the champion fighter, he’ll have to work alongside Eboni Danielson, the other love of his life. The one he left behind to pursue his dream. The one he’s never forgotten…

Between the salon and her volunteer work, Eboni keeps busy to keep her mind off the man who broke her heart. So when Gunnar shows up again, she does her best to stay cool—on the outside. But the more she watches Gunnar step up and help out, the less she can deny her feelings. Soon Gunnar is doing everything he can to convince Eboni to give him a fighting chance. Can she trust him again—even when old secrets and new dangers come between them once more?

Terri's Thoughts

**I received an advanced copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.  The expected publication date is June 23rd 2015**

This story managed to deliver exactly what I expected from it, no more and no less.  You have the story of two estranged lovers who try to deny their feelings until the point where they don't, at least physically and then emotionally later on.  No surprises with this story.

There were a few steamy scenes for those who like that in the story.  The usual amount of conflict and drama to keep the story going.  Overall it does justice to the formula.

The one thing that I found a little odd was how Gunnar was with his mother.  Here we have a huge MMA fighter who seemingly becomes a polite little child in the presence of his mother.  I have been around several men who treat their mother's well but this seemed almost extreme.  Do men like this actually exist to the point that they are lecturing others to watch their language in front of ladies, still opening doors etc.  It seemed a little extreme.  I do think it is good but not sure how prevalent it still is in today's society.  Kudos to all the moms out there if they are raising boys like this.

Overall an entertaining read.
