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.
Can't Help Falling in Love is the third book in Bella Andre's Sullivans series. This is Gabe's story who is the youngest Sullivan and a fire fighter. I have to admit that I wasn't very much impressed with Gabe before starting the book because I already have other favorites and he wasn't one of them. But still, Can't Help Falling in Love turned out to be a good read.
The story starts off with Gabe saving Megan and her daughter Summer from a horrible fire. Megan is grateful to Gabe but knows that she would never again fall for a man who works so dangerously for a living. Similarly, Gabe has had an awful experience with one of the previous victims he saved from a fire. So now he does all he can to stay away from them.
I liked how well developed Gabe and Megan were as characters. They both had pasts and history which made them what they were in the present. Both of them had issues to deal with and things to get over from. I liked how Gabe was protective of Megan's daughter Summer. The bond they shared was really sweet. Megan was just as nice, a strong mother trying the best she could.
Bella Andre always writes the most believable romance with amazing chemistry and that was again the case with Megan and Gabe. They were really denying their feelings for each other in the beginning but the sparks were flying between them. Summer's scheming to get Gabe and Megan together was a little silly but it worked.
Though Can't Help Falling in Love was a pretty typical read I liked it. I am more excited for Sophie Sullivan's story which is next but I like to go in order while reading a series so Megan and Gabe's book had to come first. I liked Can't Help Falling in Love.
