How much is worth risking?

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.

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 lovin;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 reviewed Can't Help Falling in Love in January. Here's what I had to say...
Okay, that's it. I am officially declaring Gabe Sullivan as the Sexiest Sullivan of Them All. Wow. I dug Chase, hardcore, and really liked Marcus, but Gabe is hands down my new favorite Sullivan sibling. But...but... there are still two brothers to go, and the all promise to bring the heat, so we'll see.

As you might be able to deduce from my enthusiastic intro, I love Can't Help Falling in Love. Gabe and Megan were a realistic, and romantically portrayed relationship. Gabe is an average guy, as average as anyone in his family can be, at least, a firefighter who thrives on helping those in danger. When he rescues Megan and her daughter from a deadly fire, the sparks fly instantly. But Gabe has made it a rule to not get involved with rescuees, and Megan, whose husband died in a plane crash, has taken a stance against falling in love with another risk taker. With the help of her precocious daughter and a Sullivan sister, Gabe and Megan are pushed together and soon find that the heart always trump the fear.

The Sullivan Series is quickly becoming a favorite go-to series when I need a fast shot of swoony romance. The stories keep getting better and I find myself opening and devouring each book quicker than the last. Can't Help Falling in Love was a perfect way to spend my afternoon.

Favorite Quote:

  After another long kiss good night, and another sweet I love you, he was halfway down the hall when she called out.
  "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."

    9. I just read the first book earlier this week and I liked it, but I wasn't in love. However I DO love this big huge family and I'm very curious about the other brothers, I want to get to know them better! So I may continue the series for that. :)
