Overall, I enjoyed this book. I wish I could say I loved it but the heroine, Megan, made that difficult for me. She fought her feelings for Gabe, the hero, almost the entire story, which may not have been so frustrating if there had been a bit more depth to the plot (these books are quick and simple reads, after all). As for the plot, it felt like whole storyline was the hero chasing the heroine and the heroine running from the hero.

For me, the book's saving grace came in the form of

This is freely readable here on Goodreads, and so are books one and two!!!!!!!!! Three FREE reads...awesome, Ms. Andre!!!

Somehow, I loved this book even though it is EXTREMELY formulaic for the Contemporary Romance genre. Maybe I just happen to love the formula...yes, I think that's it!

Gabe saves Megan and her seven year old daughter Summer from a fire in their apartment building.

Wow, this is fabulous!

These Sullivan brothers are just amazing. They're all so thoughtful, protective and just so damn gorgeous, you can't help but be mesmerized by them. This is Gabe Sullivan's story the sexy, hunky, extremely adorable, sweet, irresistable, thoughtful, caring firefighter! *sigh* After saving the life of Megan and her daughter Summer in an apartment fire, he finds it hard not to cross the boundary he has set, not to fall for his rescue victims.

Another wonderful book in the series about the Sullivan Family. This story is about Gabe, the fire fighter in the family of 8 siblings. He ends up saving Megan and her seven year old daughter from a dangerous fire that has broken out in their apartment building. Once again, A Sullivan falls hard and fast for a woman, and Gabe is so impressed with the courage Megan shows while they were fighting for their lives to get out of the scorching hot flames. Both Megan and Gabe feel a strong attraction t ...more

Wow!! These Sullivan brothers really have a womanizing charm! I totally love their endearments. "You're Beautiful" is one that makes my heart flutter. Yeah it may sound cheesy but it's totally different coming from their flaming mouths. Hawt!

Oh! Gabe and Megan are just fooling themselves. Hmmm... Just Friends? NOT likely. Their magnetic pull to one another is unbelievably irresistible.

Megan being a single mother after losing her husband due to a tragic accident while he was on job, swore she wo

“Say it again, Gabe. Please.” His hands moved from hers to her face , so strong and gentle, his thumbs caressing her cheeks. “I love you.” His mouth moved to hers, and he emphasized his declaration with a kiss that said the exact same thing.

I am totally loving the Sullivan clan! Bella Andre knows how to write the perfect blend of sweet and super sexy.. I loved Gabe and Megan together and her little girl Summer was just icing on the cake. One thing I really have loved about this series so far,

The third book to the Sullivans series is the story about a couple of people who are afraid to take chances. While Gabe, a firefighter, dealt with the dangers of his job on a regular basis, Megan spends her life afraid to take any risks: safe job, safe boyfriends. Ever since her husband died while serving as an air force pilot, she's taken painstaking means to protect her daughter and her heart from ever going through that fear and pain again.

Originally posted on, reviewed by Nichole.

I’m only three books into this series, but this one was a huge miss for me. It’s sad, really, since I really enjoyed book 2. This one, though, just really missed the mark.

My biggest complaint about this book was that I just did NOT like Megan at all. I thought she whined all the time and was just boring as all else. She kept going on and on and on and ON about how she couldn’t be with Gabe, but then she jumped right back into his arms the

This series gets better and better with each Sullivan sibling. Gabe was a total hottie and I loved his character. Bella Andre is quickly becoming one of my faves.
This month I am reading a lot about firefighters. I loved Gabe and how he loved Megan. However, Summer was the star of this romance.

I am a bit critical when it comes to romances involving firefighters. I'm pretty sure I mentioned it before, but to recap, my best friend was married to a NYC firefighter for almost ten years before he walked into their kitchen and said he wanted a divorce. So I've had a front row seat to view the pros and cons of being married to a firefighter. This was a man who worked the Pile after 9/11 and got injured at least twice in the line of duty, but he was also an adrenaline junkie. His job depended ...more

CAN’T HELP FALLING IN LOVE was another great addition to the Sullivans! This is a great family series that is near perfect.

Fears are met and overcome in Gabe’s story as he falls in love with Megan Harris and her seven year old daughter, Summer. After a previous relationship he had with a woman he rescued went south, he’s been determined not to go down that alley again.

For Megan, falling for a guy who risks his life everyday isn’t in the cards after losing her husband and Summer’s father in a N

I seriously keep thinking the brothers in this series cannot keep getting any hotter than the previous, however Gabe the fireman has proved me wrong with more than his flame tackling ways!

Gabe saves Megan and her daughter Summer in a fire. Gabe is an ultimate player who has been burned badly in the past by getting involved with a burns victim so decides despite the instant attraction to Megan that all they have have is a friends relationship.

Gabe’s story is a wonderful new installment to the Sullivan family saga. Megan and her daughter fit right in with the Sullivan’s and Gabe’s love brings them all together. There is definitely undeniable heat between Gabe and Megan, often leaving you singed from their passion. I loved reading the emotional and heated meeting between them, but even more I loved seeing how the love they developed slowly brought them both out of living in their pasts and gave them a chance for the future they deserve ...more

Dei tre romanzi sulla serie dei fratelli Sullivan pubblicati fin ora, “Se m’innamoro” è senza dubbio il più riuscito. Probabilmente il merito è del fascino evergreen del pompiere coraggioso, un eroe più che per mestiere per una vera e propria vocazione. Gabe, manco a dirlo, è un esemplare divino di uomo alfa: muscoloso, tenebroso, eccitante ma anche tenero e protettivo con donne e bambini. Megan e Gabe si conoscono durante un’occasione tragica: un grave incendio. Gabe è colui che salva la giovan ...more
Listened to on audio. Narrated by Eva Kaminsky.

I liked this but I must admit that I struggled to stay interested and I had to rewind the audio several times because my mind had wandered off on to other things. I not sure why this one didn't keep my attention, but I was a little bored. Maybe it was less exciting than the last book or perhaps the characters were less compelling...I don't know for sure.

Still enjoyable though.

Non pensavo facesse parte di una serie, quando l'ho letto, ma vabbe', sono tutti autoconclusivi quindi lo si può leggere benissimo anche senza aver ancora letto gli altri. Difatti, la lettura scorre tranquillamente e senza buchi di trama da colmare. E, ragazzi, che libro! A partire dai protagonisti, che mai scadono nei cliché e sono sempre realistici; specialmente Megan, piena di paure per la morte del marito e spaventata dal lasciarsi andare e lanciarsi senza paracadute e certezze. E Gabe. Parl ...more

Gabe Sullivan is a firefighter who loves women. He’s not a complete player but he’s not afraid to go for a woman if he’s attracted to her. He does have a rule though: no dating women he’s rescued in fires. He went that route one before and it did not turn out well.

Megan Harris is a widow and single mother whose husband was a navy fighter pilot. She’s dated since her husband’s death five years earlier but the men were always had “safe” jobs – 9-5 desk jobs. Megan’s husband was a thrill seeker and

Not even the entire San Francisco Fire Brigade could extinguish the flares and sparks flying between Megan Harris (sensible woman, over-cautious mother, widow and CPA) and Gabe Sullivan (determined man, focused and heroic firefighter, stunning male specimen and single).

After Chase and Marcus, its Gabe’s turn to tell his story.

Gabe Sullivan is as hot as the other Sullivan brothers and he is a firefighter. I really dunno how he came to be a firefighter because I kept thinking that he sets everything on fire :P Anyway, coming back to the story, Gabe has been burnt once and knows not to fall in love with the fire victims he helps save. Megan Harris on the other hand knows better than to fall in love with someone with a dangerous job. After all, she had learnt that

“You never told me how the story ends, Gabe."
She held her breath, waiting for his response.
His expression held all the love and desire she knew he felt for her.
"It doesn't.”
She'd never been a big beliver in things like that, had always believed that solid decisions and hard work were what paid off. And they had.
But, really, it was getting to the point where it felt like the universe was screaming at her to pay attention!”
