Review: Can't Help Falling In Love by Bella Andre

Can't Help Falling In Love by Bella Andre
Bella Andre
December 2011
Format: e-book, 200 pages

First line: Gabe Sullivan was helping an elderly couple down the stairs of an old San Francisco apartment building and out onto the sidewalk when the air was rocked with an explosion of flames and smoke out a second-story window.

Book description: 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.

My thoughts: This is the third book in Bella Andre's Sullivan series and we now get to read about Gabe, the sexy firefighter and how he finds his happily ever after.

Gabe meets Meghan and her daughter, Summer, when he needs to rescue them from a fire in their building. Right from the start, Gabe realizes Meghan is a strong, determined woman, but he has a rule that he does not date any of his rescues - it just ends up biting him in the butt. Meghan has loved and lost a man due to risk-taking and refuses to date anyone that works at anything remotely dangerous. But, as they soon find out, the best-laid plans often have minds of their own. And with the help of Gabe's matchmaking sister, Sophie, who also just so happens to be a college friend of Meghan's, they get the push they need to try to work things out. Plus, little Summer pulls a few antics of her own to get her mommy and the nice firefighter together.

Throughout the book, we get glimpses of the rest of the Sullivan clan. I like how even though Bella Andre has told some of their stories in earlier books, we still get updates on them, plus we get to see a little more of the ones whose stories come later in the series. For example, in Can't Help Falling in Love, Sophie plays a minor role and her story is hinted at throughout the book and I can't wait to read her story in I Only Have Eyes for You.
