Gabe Sullivan risks his life every day as a firefighter in San Francisco, but he knows better than to risk giving his heart again. Especially not to the woman he saved from a deadly apartment fire and can't stop thinking about.It's official. Bella Andre is my crack. Seriously. With each book she hooks me just a little bit more and I fall even harder for the Sullivans. Can't Help Falling in Love...yeah, perfect name for the book. From the very first page Gabe and Megan had me. Their harrowing first meet as he rescues them from a fire, the spark and how hard they resisted each other, the steamy bits and the sweet moments. It all came together for one knock out read and is just what I look for in contemporary romance.
Megan Harris owes everything to the heroic firefighter who saved her and her daughter. Everything except her heart. Because after losing her pilot husband, she has vowed to never suffer through loving and losing a man with a dangerous job again.
But when Gabe and Megan meet again, how can he possibly ignore her courage, determination and beauty? And how can she deny not only his strong bond with her daughter & but also his sweetly sensual kisses, challenging her to risk everything she's been guarding for so long?

I loved Megan and her daughter. Usually kids are a no-go for me in books because they just don't seem their age but Andre nailed it. Summer was the perfect 7 year old. She's spunky, resilient, wide open honest and knows what she wants. And Megan. I felt for her. She lost her dare devil husband years ago and has played it safe ever since. So falling for a man who constantly puts his life on the line was hard for her. I loved her struggle. Seeing him knock down her walls and take a little risk was so much fun and on more than one occasion so incredibly naughty. I loved it.
And oh Gabe. The man is swoon-worthy. He's gorgeous. A fireman. Strong, brave and fierce about what he does. And he made all my girly bits stand up and pay attention. LOL I have such a weakness for men who are good with kids and seriously Gabe. Oh my god. He was the sweetest, cutest thing when it came to Megan's daughter and spending time with her. So damn sexy. Okay, he's just sexy in general...
"I could take you now, could be inside you in seconds." his voice was rough at her ear, his words blunt and oh-so-sexy, making her heart race with wanting what he was describing. "Just like this, up against the wall, your legs wrapped around my hips, with you coming around me as I take you hard and fast."Dayum! Right? Whew.
Yes! That was what she wanted. What she needed.
Only, instead of doing any of those things, he stilled his hips against hers and lifted his face from that spot beside her ear where he was filling her head with naughty visions. His blue eyes seared her with heat.
"But that's not how we're going to do this tonight, Megan."
Her eyes widened at the confident statement. "But what if that's what I want?" came from between her lips, barely above a whisper.
"You'll want this more," he said, and then he was bending his head to lick into the hollow of her shoulder.
The great thing about Bella is she weaves just the right amount of details about the previous couples into the storyline so you know what's happened before and know what's going on with them now but it's not over the top. It fits the story and flows nicely. So you can really start anywhere in the series (though they're really all freaking good so you shouldn't skip any of them--just sayin).
Can't Help Falling in Love was sweet and sexy, heart warming and will make you do that girly sigh thing more than once. It's all about Megan, Gabe and getting past their fears. There are some bits that'll get your heart pounding (either from dangers at his job or, well, those naughty bits that I mentioned) too. It's a comfortable read you won't want to put down. So grab a snack before you start and dig in.
Have you read Bella Andre?
Who's your favorite hero/heroine of hers?
