Get ready for another Sullivan bad boy to fall in love in the third book of Bella Andre's bestselling contemporary romance series!
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.

"Gabe just might be my favorite Sullivan yet! I LOVED this book." (Marie Force, Bestselling Author of Treading Water)
“The perfect combination of sexy heat and tender heart.” (Barbara Freethy, #1 New York Times bestselling author)
"Bella Andre writes warm, sexy contemporary romance that always give me a much needed pick me up. Reading one of her books is truly a pleasure." (New York Times Bestselling author Maya Banks)
If you're anything like me, then you'll want passion, a great emotional storyline, a handsome hero, some hot and heavy and great characters from your romance downloads and this has it all in buckets.
I'm loving this series and can't wait to ride the emotional roller coaster from the next Sullivan offspring and I'm soooo thankful it's a big family so there's plenty more to come.
Worth a credit? Hot sexy fireman rescues damsel in distress errr that would be a YES.
I love books, it's my great escape.
I am captivated by Bella Andre’s contemporary romance series. I was thinking that the 3rd time would not be a charm. I was totally wrong; book #3 is a charm. Take my word for it you will fall in love with the story of sexy Gabe Sullivan and Megan. I love a good romance with a hero and Gabe fits the bill. He also delivers the sexy too! Book #4 is already downloading. I can’t wait to get to the next book in this series. This is one of the best series I have discovered this year.
I love witty, fast-paced books that keep you turning the page.
I'm with the other reviewers who have noticed that the story lines in this series just keep getting better. The reluctant widow (Megan) who doesn't want to get involved with another man in a risky job (Gabe- the firefighter) is a surprisingly endearing plot that is well crafted. I found myself listening even when I wasn't commuting just to find out what was going to happen next. On to book 4!
I enjoy many types of books and am always looking for new authors to read and listen too. I enjoy reading the reviews and adding my own from time to time.
I liked the story. It was easy to follow and you could identify with the characters. A very good love story. Fighting sadness from your past is something I can identify with. I like the family interactions between the Sullivans. I will listen to all of the books but since all are not available at this time, will have to read part of the series first. Hopefully, soon, all of them will be on audible and I can have a whole weekend of Sullivan brothers and sisters.The narration was very good.
That sexy fireman, Gabe. Who else would it be. I liked Megan of course but really, Gabe would be hard to resist as a favorite. Liked his whole character and not just the sexy part.Her daughter Summer is a good character also and I liked her part in this story.
The rooftop scene where they watch the fireworks on New Years.
I liked it.
Really wish that all this series was already on audible although the last book is not out as yet.
Tell us about yourself! Married, avid reader and book reviewer.

With Megan not be sure this is the correct path for her and her daughter will she feels something for this guy? And, on the other hand do we find that Gabe also feels something for Megan? With Gabe being on hot and sexy fireman will they be able to get together in this fantastic story? This is where I say you must pick up "Can't Help Falling In Love" so see how this author will bring it all out to the reader. It will be a beautiful read that I can only recommend to you.
I enjoy historical, paranormal, and contemporary romance. Also steampunk, sci-fi, fantasy, suspense, and fiction. I'm open to about anything
Setting: San Francisco, contemporary
Narration: Eva Kaminsky continues to give a fine performance.
This is the 3rd in The Sullivans series. The plots in this series continue to improve with each book. The plot is related in 3rd person alternating between Gabe and Megan's point of view. In this one, Gabe Sullivan is a firefighter who, in the opening scene, rescues Megan and her daughter Summer from their apartment during a 3 alarm fire. The three meet more formally at the hospital where Gabe is recovering from an injury sustained during that fire. Summer immediately begins a steady hero-worship of Gabe, and does whatever she can to see him, dragging her mother along. Gabe is wary of getting involved with a fire victim due to a relationship that went bad in his past. He is attracted to Megan, but she, too, has issues related to men who take risks. She is the widow of a Navy fighter pilot who died while flying a small, privately owned plane. The plot takes place over several months, so there's a slower build-up in the relationship. Gabe puts his wariness aside and begins to pursue Megan, and soon declares his love. But, though they become lovers, Megan is loath to let go of her fears. She is afraid that if she lets herself love him, it would be too devastating if he went out to fight a fire and never came home. This is a sweet story with a side of steam. The sex isn't graphic enough to fall into the erotica category, and the only violence has to do with a couple of fires. This is the best of the 3 I've re listened to so far.
Worth the credit, for sure.
Now, off to #4, Sophie's story.
Give me water to swim and surf in. That with a glass of white wine and the sun. That's heaven.
Yes, due to the ways it shows, I would be sure to listen to it for the optimistic feelings.
Summer, because she always saw the bright side and worked to get her mother and Greg Sullivan together.
Summers mother was the most favorite of all the characters.
I tried to listen to this in one sitting, but had to switch to two sittings.
Hot romance/Sci Fi we're so lucky to have Audible to feed our book addictions. I love walking my precious dog Sydney & listening to my books
Spunky Firefighter Gabe saved Megan and her daughter from a fire which automatically means that Megan is off limits. That's not the fire departments rule - that's Gabe's rule. He went down that road before, and it didn't have a happy ending. Gabe doesn't date women that he saved from fires.... Gabe Sullivan is pretty much the perfect man, sexy, romantic, determined and he loves kids. Megan is a widowed single mom, scared to love again. They are both determined NOT to end up in a relationship with each other !!
Tell us about yourself!
What A Man!
Gabe of course. I loved Megan and Summer, but Gabe, oh boy, unbelievable steamy sensibility. Gabe is every woman's dream. He's strong, naughty, sensitive, sexy, risqué and just so, so yummy.
Eva has incredible talent. What a voice. I love they way she makes the female characters come to life. I love that when she does the talking parts and makes the females so adorable. Her voice has significant changes from "Narration" mode to "Speech" mode. Totally professional. Perfect for these novels.
All of it. Sorry. Megan disarms Gabe right from the beginning. He tries to fight it but always thinking of her and her daughter. She has internal demons always comparing him to Dave and I guess that when the realisation hits her that Gabe is so much more, is perhaps my favourite part.
You will laugh, perhaps cry but most of all you will sigh a dreamy sigh and think what every woman thinks, "where in the heck is my Gabe!"
Can’t help falling in love is the 3rd book in The Sullivans series by Bella Andre. I listened to this book in audio format and absolutely loved it! The narrator, Eva Kaminsky, has an uncanny ability to make each character come alive. She even does a really good job with the child in this book. In my experience children can come off way over the top or annoying, but Ms. Kaminsky didn’t seem to have this problem. The story and the characters were endearing. The romance was heartfelt and beautiful.
Megan Harris has been through so much in her life. Raising a child alone, after the loss of her husband, she’s been tough and gave Summer the best life she could. Fate has decided to kick her, yet again. There was a fire in her apartment barely sparing the life of her and Summer and that was thanks to the heroic fireman who came to their rescue. Working hard to get her life back on track they go to the firehouse to take cookies as a thank you. The little girl quickly has a huge case of hero worship and Gabe seems equally taken with her. Megan finds herself drawn to Gabe, however his feelings seem to be the complete opposite for Megan. He acts as if she is a pain in his neck and he can’t get away from her fast enough. Things are about to get sticky, considering Megan has reunited with her dear friend, Gabe’s sister, and there seems to be a very good chance that her and Gabe will be thrown together socially.
Gabe Sullivan is blown away by the instant zing he feels when he sees Megan. He knew he respected her after the rescue of her and her daughter. Her strength and love of her daughter is one of the main reasons he was able to get the pair out of that burning apartment alive. But, he’s made a promise to himself that he would never again get involved with a woman that he’s rescued. In his opinion, it sets up huge expectations that a normal relationship can’t stand up to. Resisting Megan and her beautiful little girl is going to be one of the hardest things Gabe has ever had to do.
I really like how Megan deals with Gabe’s reaction to her. Because of her husband’s untimely death due to his adrenaline addiction she has no interest in any man who has a high risk life. Yet, she this huge attraction with Gabe is so hard to fight.
Gabe was so sweet with Summer. I absolutely loved how he treated the little girl like a person and respected Megan so much for being a good mother. The journey the two take to overcome the fears they have as a result of their past is so bittersweet. The romance they share together is so lovely and fun to melt into.
I absolutely love this series. This book did not disappoint in a
