"A very emotional book that absolutely captivated me from the first page." Lesetiger on Fall Guy
From the blurb:
He’s a thief, a convicted felon. A cocky guy with tattoos and a smirk for days. He needs a bodyguard and I need a job, so here we are. And the more time I spend with Ronan Michaels, the more I realize maybe he isn’t the bad guy after all. But why do I feel like he’s hiding something or protecting someone? Or both?
My angel Gabriel has a devil on his shoulder. He’s not a sinner—but certainly no saint. He’s been lied to and abandoned. Hurt by people who should love him no matter what. Gabriel’s discovered my secrets, yet the more I push him away, the closer he stands by my side. And when his past crumbles, leaving him searching for answers, I’m right there for him, holding his hand. Holding him up. Because love is catching someone when they fall. And never letting go.
From Lambda Literary Award-winning author Felice Stevens, comes an irresistible bodyguard romance about two men busy fighting the demons of their past—and their attraction to each other.
Felice Stevens has done it again: she has written a very emotional book that absolutely captivated me from the first page. What a roller coaster ride of emotions.
Even the first chapter was intense. Being released from prison and then there is no one there to see you and the people Ronan has left of family have moved quite far away. But the more you learn about Ronan and his motives, the more heartbreaking the story is. I was angry, I was sad, I was stunned.
But where there is a lot of shadow, light eventually emerges and in this case that was Gabriel, who first saved Ronan from an angry crowd and whom he then hired as a bodyguard.
I really loved both Ronan and Gabriel. They are likable, very sympathetic and were profoundly drawn by Felice Stevens. I loved how their relationship developed and I loved Gabriel so much for looking behind Ronan's facade. Ronan's sister and her husband, on the other hand, I unfortunately didn't warm to.
However, Gabriel also has a baggage from his past that he has to deal with.
I loved the story of Ronan and Gabriel. A very stirring book about family, trust, disappointment and betrayal, but also joy and forgiveness.
The narrator, Kale Williams, did an absolutely fantastic job narrating Fall Guy. I love how soulfully he is able to express all the emotions of the different characters. He brought the story to life, he gave the characters different voices, had the appropriate pace of speech and was a pleasure to listen to!
