Looks: Cute and Vulnerable
Best Character Traits: Honest, Brave, Athletic, knows how to take care of a woman, selfless
Flaws: I really couldn't find any!
Overall rating:  A-
Thoughts: He's right up there with Chase as far as I'm concerned.  The only drawback for me would be his age. I'm too old for him! I also don't think I could handle his job hours.

This is only for entertainment purposes only.  This guy is actually a male model, but I couldn't find his real name!

The Sullivans #3
My rating: 4.5 stars

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.

My 2 cents

This is my favorite book so far in the series!  I absolutely loved Gabe and Megan's story!  There was so much heartache from both of them, I just wanted to make them hug each other!  Gabe is so sexy and caring, and 
if I was Megan I would have fallen in love just as fast as she did!  Megan was a great heroine.  She was a great mother, and I loved that this time, one of the main characters had a kid to complicate things a bit.

The ski resort scenes were awesome!  Usually any vacations in a romance are on an island or on the beach, so the ski resort was a nice switchup!  And Megan's daughter, Summer, was such a spunky little girl, she added a lot of humor on trying to set these two up!

I can't find anything really bad to say about this book!  It was a quick read that I couldn't put down, and I hope I like the rest of the series just as much!
