The Look of Love by Crystal BrightYou 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?

     Ten years has passed since Gunnar Wells left on a bus to move to Vegas to become an MMA fighter.  By doing that though not only did he leave but he left behind the gorgeous African American mother (Queen) Elizabeth Wells who chose to raise him and his two brothers.  Most are probably thinking so what!  Well Gun and his brothers Gideon and Thane are all white.
     She didn’t care she loved them unconditionally even when Gun fought her oh so hard.  Queen demanded they showed respect as she always gave, she insisted on manners that she taught them, and she taught them to never interrupt when someone was speaking.
     When it came to girls they were always to be treated and spoken to with respect.  Which meant opening doors for them, when giving your word you held to it, and you never talked bad about them.  When he met Eboni Danielson it was all over he was smitten.
     He told her he would always be there for her then the next thing she knew when she said she couldn’t leave with him, he up and left.  To only come back 10 years later not for her but for Queeny.  The tension was high to say the least.  So much has changed for the both of them.  Yet, one thing's for sure the hurt, lack of trust, etc…was still there.  There’s a surprise for both of them when they meet up for the first time at the hospital.  Queeny has her own ideas as how this should play out too!
     Queen asked Gunnar home and Eboni to stay at the house while her test are being run, figuring they would find nothing.  And since she called right before a fight that Gunnar wouldn’t come.  Not telling the other one that she had spoken to the other one.  What she didn’t tell her son since it had been 10 years since he had been home is that his and the boys rooms were no longer theirs.  They had been transformed into a sewing room and a huge walk in closet.  Not knowing Eboni was sleeping over and her not knowing he was not staying at a hotel boy did they have a problem.  Luckily the apartment over the garage was still there and in fact Queen had made it new and improved.
     Now that he was going to help out at the salon like old times things needed to change.  For him and those at the salon.  Most of all Eboni who was now his mother’s manager.  Could they at least become friends again?  Gun wanted so much more.
     Loved this book all the way to the end it left Queen hanging.  It did however resolve issues to a point where I felt satisfaction at the end with Eboni and Gunnar.  I give it 4 stars.  Provided by netgalley.
