When her spur-of-the-moment vacation is over, Kasey, a junior marketing consultant, finds herself on the marketing team for LETA, a growing cosmetics company. Kasey's thrown into the fast-paced world of promotional galas, photo shoots, and magazine interviews. When the owners of LETA decide to release their very first fragrance, Kasey's new assignment is to find out what love looks like and then find a way to sell it. With the help of Amanda and a few new friends, and with a rekindled relationship with the Lover of her soul, Kasey discovers that sometimes love looks like what we least expect.
Brandy Bruce has penned a fun novel full of laughs, love, and real life. Her wit and voice shine on every page.

This book was sweet, funny, and real in the most beautiful combination. I jumped right in one Saturday morning and was hooked. Reading it was like talking to a really good friend who decided to let you into their life one day. It's written in first person so you really get to know Kasey well.
I appreciated Kasey's character because, though there are times you're frustrated with her and yelling at the book (um, maybe that was just me?) because you know she's making a mistake...you also see how real she is and what it truly takes for a person to grow.
I also really enjoyed Brandy's life-perspective. That may sound strange, but it is a Christian romance and yet you find realness in these pages. Kasey isn't perfect. She doesn't always turn to God when she should (just as we all don't do that every time we should) and we get to see what happens to her through it all. The good, the bad, the difficult, and the beautiful. And through it all there is the sweet fragrance of love.
And Lincoln... *sigh* He wasn't perfect either (another thing I appreciated) but he was real, sweet, honest, and a great "hero" for Kasey. I found myself appreciating the circumstances they both found themselves in because, again, it was real. He had flaws just as she did.
The only thing I would say is that there were a few sections that felt very much like we were just being told what happened in a list of "then this happened, then this" etc. Those parts were a little sluggish to me and momentarily took away from the sweetness of their story.
In all, a definite recommend from me if you enjoy sweet romance or Christian romance. This book will leave you feeling happy and leave you thinking about love in the best way!

I love a good story and Looks Like Love by Brandy Bruce is indeed one. How could I not have heard about this simply delightful, yet insightful contemporary piece?! This one needs to be thrown out there for my fellow female readers, to those searching for love and to those seeking to make their dreams come true.
From the title, you can tell it's a love story. It's a story on love, what love looks like, but it's also a story about dreams and possibilities. I just adore that. Yes, I'm a romantic at heart. I've been through similar heartaches and uncertainties in my future as our main character, Kasey, but along that journey, I've learned something - about myself, my friends, my family and most importantly, my God.
"I think sometimes we forget that love is more than feelings . . . it's acceptance; it's compassion; it's forgiveness. Love is action. Love is God." (134)
Sometimes we lose sight, and sometimes we wonder what our future will hold. Will we find love? Will our ambition in our careers ever take flight? And what if it did, are we willing to sacrifice it for a chance at love? I love every one of our focused characters, maybe because I see a little of me in every one of them - controlling (in a loving way) Amanda, carefree with dreams to be more Lincoln, and Kasey, the insecure, yet hardworking. I see me, but I think we all will find a bit in each of them that we can relate to.
So, in all, Looks Like Love does look like love. Love from the author to each of her readers and to those that continues to wonder about love. Take a trip with Kasey in Looks Like Love and remember Jeremiah 29:11.
"Love. It is perfect. Messy at times. Crazy at times. Painful at times. But absolutely perfect." (239)
