#BookReview :: Can't Help Falling In Love (The Sullivans #3) by Bella Andre

Gabe Sullivan risks his life every day as a firefighter in San Francisco. But after learning a brutal lesson about professional boundaries, he knows better than to risk his heart to his fire victims ever again. Especially the brave mother and daughter he saved from a deadly apartment fire...and can't stop thinking about.

Megan Harris knows she owes the heroic firefighter everything for running into a burning building to save her and her seven-year-old daughter. Everything except her heart. Because after losing her navy pilot husband five years ago, she has vowed to never suffer through loving - and losing - a man with a dangerous job again.

Only, when Gabe and Megan meet again and uncontrollable flames of desire ignite between them, how can he possibly ignore her courage, determination, and beauty? And how can she deny not only his strong bond with her daughter.but the way his sweetly sensual kisses are challenging her to risk everything she's been guarding for so long?

This winter, if one - or both - of them aren't careful, they just might end up falling in love.

After Chase and Marcus, its Gabe’s turn to tell his story.

Gabe Sullivan is as hot as the other Sullivan brothers and he is a firefighter. I really dunno how he came to be a firefighter because I kept thinking that he sets everything on fire :P Anyway, coming back to the story, Gabe has been burnt once and knows not to fall in love with the fire victims he helps save. Megan Harris on the other hand knows better than to fall in love with someone with a dangerous job. After all, she had learnt that the hard way when she had lost her pilot husband. But what happens when destiny bring these two together? Will they be able to stick to their rules and stay away from each other? Or will the adorable Summer’s matchmaking give them the push they need?

OMG! Yes, I hardly use that, but it is for Gabe. I think I have found my favourite Sullivan brother. He is handsome, he is sexy, he is sweet, he is caring and he is protective. What else could you possibly ask for? Meghan is on the other hand provided stability. As a single mother, her actions and her interactions somehow made her synonymous to stability for me. I liked her. But I loved summer more. She is such an adorable kiddo that you cannot but help love her.

Like the other 2 books that I have read by Bella Andre, I did feel that their story was a bit rushed. I mean whatever happened to the old-fashioned lets date for a year or two before making a commitment? I guess, with the size of an average romance novel, an author has only so much space to spread out the story. Plus with a man like Gabe available, who’d want to let him be ‘available’ for too long.

As usual her writing style is quite good and it is one of those toe-curling sweet romances that I enjoyed reading!
