Falling for the Good Guy Summary


Falling for the Good Guy - The second book of the Sullivan Brothers "Nice Girl Trilogy” that began the New York Times, USA Today, and international bestselling CAN'T RESIST series.

Her best friend since college. The polar opposite of his brother Connor. The ‘good guy’ everyone’s hell-bent on believing is her perfect match. Anything beyond friendship for them had just never been a possibility. But it is now.

For over a decade, through his high school sweetheart’s illness and eventual passing, Abby had been his pal, his rock, all but a second mother to his young daughter. His heart had simply never been free to love her then. But it is now.

Now that his brother Connor has left her with a shattered heart he could kill him for causing, Brian’s got one chance.

...To prove to Abby that everyone’s right.

    Wow, this is too much. First of all Abby, has been the best friend she could possibly be to Brian, considering the circumstances regarding his ex wife and being a surrogate mom to his Daughter. Conner was being a great brother to Brian regarding the same set of circumstances. Death is never a great situation, but now this love triangle is too much. I love Brian but I believe her heart belongs to Conner..... Time will tell....
  • Excellent!

    When I first started this book, my brain was saying "NO! Abby belongs with Connor!" But then the story unfolds and it just seemed so right...so now I'm conflicted LOL. Very well written, and I love finding out more and more about the characters as they become even more well-rounded than they were in the first book. Just like the first one, I was totally engrossed in this one, plowing through it in one sitting of a few hours. And after reading the cliffhanger at the end of this one, well...sorry, but I need to go read the third right now!

    Wow Abby is a brother-jumping sleezeball. The guys should get smart and find a woman who doesn't want to swap juices with brothers. Just sayin'...
  • Teen Tease

    This is more of a teen teaser novel than a well-written story.

    I started this book set against Brian. I wanted Abby to end up with Connor. As I got deeper and deeper into the book I started seeing things differently. As Abby got to know Brian on a personal relationship level I started wanting her to pick him. By the end of the book I was ready to pull my hair out. How was she going to pick between two such awesome men!
  • Another great book!
