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 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?

My Review:

Beginning Babble: First of all, I must apologize for the lateness of this review. I hurt my wrist and have been on limited typing for the past couple of weeks.

I have spent a good deal of the summer reading Bella Andre's books and I find that I really do love them. The characters are always so interesting and the stories fun and sweet. Bella Andre is quickly making her way onto my favorite contemporary romance authors list. This one was my favorite of the trilogy.

Heroine: Megan-I really did like her. But oddly enough, I don't think I would have liked her on her own as much as I liked her with her daughter, Summer. Summer added depth to Megan's character and helped me relate more Megan as a character.

Hero: Gabe-I have a huge weakness for fireman heroes. A big one. It goes beyond the logical. I really loved Gabe. He was this awesome dichotomy of gentle and tough and I find that so very appealing. He also had a little broken to him which gave him a nice depth of character.

Chemistry: I am going to say something I never say. I would have liked this book (and this couple) less without Summer. I think Megan and Gabe needed the added aspect of a child to really come together as a couple. Summer added an extra dimension and complexity to their connection.

Chemistry Rating:

Ending Babble: I really loved this series so far—there are many, many more in the Sullivans series. It's not the most complex of stories but it's wonderful in it's simplicity. I think that's why I loved this book so much. It's well written, the main couple has excellent chemistry and it's simple and good. I will be following along with the Sullivans because they just keep getting better.
