Can't Help Falling in Love

Can’t Help Falling in Love (The Sullivans #3) By: Bella Andre

Plot:

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.

Review:

I didn’t like this one as much as the previous two. I’m not sure why though. Maybe it was because I read it back to back with the previous one and I really liked the previous two? I don’t know.

Gabe and Megan were an alright couple. Megan’s daughter Summer was fine too. I just didn’t get into them as much. Maybe it was Megan’s fears? Some were completely justified others I just thought she should be able to see through.

Like I said, I’m not sure why I didn’t like this one as much. Oh well on to the next!

From This Moment On

From This Moment On (The Sullivans #2) By: Bella Andre

Plot:

With FROM THIS MOMENT ON, bestselling author Bella Andre introduces you to Marcus, the second Sullivan bad boy, whose life will never be the same from the moment he meets Nicola‚Ķ. For thirty-six years, Marcus Sullivan has been the responsible older brother, stepping in to take care of his seven siblings after their father died when they were children. But when the perfectly ordered future he’s planned for himself turns out to be nothing but a lie, Marcus needs one reckless night to shake free from it all. Nicola Harding is known throughout the world by only one name – Nico – for her catchy, sensual pop songs. Only, what no one knows about the twenty-five year old singer is that her sex-kitten image is totally false. After a terrible betrayal by a man who loved fame far more than he ever loved her, she vows not to let anyone else get close enough to find out who she really is…or hurt her again. Especially not the gorgeous stranger she meets at a nightclub, even though the hunger – and the sinful promises – in his dark eyes make her want to spill all her secrets. One night is all Nicola and Marcus agree to share with each other. But nothing goes as they plan when instead of simply tangling limbs, they find a deeper connection than either of them could have anticipated. And even though they both try to fight it, growing emotions – and sizzling attraction – keep drawing them closer together. Close enough for them to wonder if stealing one more secret moment together can ever be enough?.

Review:

Really liked this one. The entire time I pictured Katy Perry as Nico. She even does an acoustic bit at her shows, so maybe Andre was picturing her too.

Love it when the responsible type has to learn to love. As long as they aren’t asked to become a someone else entirely. Marcus was still the same at the end of the book but learned that love was worth some sacrifices. Like airline miles and work hours. Love is totally worth those.

The Look of Love (The Sullivans #1) By: Bella Andre

Plot:

Chloe Peterson is having a bad night. A really bad night. The large bruise on her cheek can attest to that. And when her car skids off the side of a wet country road straight into a ditch, she’s convinced even the gorgeous guy who rescues her in the middle of the rain storm must be too good to be true. Or is he? As a successful photographer who frequently travels around the world, Chase Sullivan has his pick of beautiful women, and whenever he’s home in San Francisco, one of his seven siblings is usually up for causing a little fun trouble. Chase thinks his life is great just as it is–until the night he finds Chloe and her totaled car on the side of the road in Napa Valley. Not only has he never met anyone so lovely, both inside and out, but he quickly realizes she has much bigger problems than her damaged car. Soon, he is willing to move mountains to love–and protect–her, but will she let him? Chloe vows never to make the mistake of trusting a man again. Only, with every loving look Chase gives her–and every sinfully sweet caress–as the attraction between them sparks and sizzles, she can’t help but wonder if she’s met the only exception. And although Chase didn’t realize his life was going to change forever in an instant, amazingly, he isn’t the least bit interested in fighting that change. Instead, he’s gearing up for a different fight altogether…for Chloe’s heart. (love story, contemporary romance, alpha males, heroes, sexy romance, bad boys, falling in love)

Review:

This is the start of my romance book marathon. Every Wednesday and Saturday this month I’m going to post a review on a romance book.

I’ve heard of Bella Andre, you can’t move in certain circles without having heard of her, but I’ve only ever read one of her books. Since it was before I started writing reviews I’m not sure why I gave Love Me two stars.

Anyway, I really enjoy series that follow a family so I’ve been meaning to try her Sullivans series for a while. I was not disappointed. Chase and Chloe have great chemistry and even though Chloe was in an abusive relationship she doesn’t come off as weak. Slightly repressed, but not weak. She is a great heroine and Chase is almost too good to be true.

I ended up doing a thirty day free trial on Kindle Unlimited just so that I could read the next in this series because after just one book I’m hooked. I have to know what happens next in this family.
