Story Overview:
Get ready for another Sullivan bad boy to fall in love in CAN'T HELP FALLING IN LOVE, the third book of Bella Andre's bestselling contemporary romance series! 

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 Review:
Ah, I love a good story full of lots of emotions and this one was fantastic!! 


No one has a better reason to protect her heart from someone with a dangerous job than Megan. After losing her thrill-seeking husband to a plane crash, she never plans to risk that kind of heartbreak again...for either her or her daughter. But when Gabe Sullivan rescues her and her daughter from their burning apartment and is hurt in the process, she doesn't want to feel the inexorable pull to him.  


Gabe has his own very good reasons for not wanting to get involved. He dated another woman who he met on a fire rescue and things did not end well with that. It's bad when the relationship starts out with him as the rescuer. He knows that and so he's doing his best to stay far, far away from Megan because he feels the draw between them too.


But throw in a really smart seven year old who also has a thing for fireman and these two really don't stand much of a chance. Like I said, I just really loved this book. The romance and sexual tension is through the roof. There are romantic, wonderfully gorgeous scenes like the ski lodge in Tahoe and New Year's Eve fireworks on the roof in San Francisco. I liked both of these characters and could completely understand their reluctance to become involved. The premise and story line just worked perfectly. Midway through the book, I felt like my heart was breaking for these two and the circumstances keeping them apart. They were just so perfect for one another.


Just another fabulous installment to this series, although I have to admit, I am not sure which one I love more #2 or #3. They are both so good. At this point, the only thing keeping these books from getting A+ ratings has been the fact that I haven't actually cried during them...although I came pretty close in this one. Now off to go read Sophie's book...
