A glimpse of a group of businessmen in a newspaper tells Colin Hess his old love, Alejandro Ramos, is back in London a decade after they split up.
They met by chance as students, when Colin was pushed into Ramos’s lap at a party. Despite the disapproval from Ramos’s parents, Colin and Ramos were inseparable from that moment and settled in their own place as soon as they finished university.
But when Ramos’s father fell ill, Ramos was forced to return to the family vineyard, leaving Colin behind. When Colin joined him for a holiday, the plans Ramos’s parents had for their son became painfully clear—and those plans did not involve Colin.
Colin knows it would be stupid to rekindle their old love after the devastating end to their relationship. Still, neither can deny that they still have feelings for each other from the minute they meet, and Colin learns the meeting might not be as random as it seemed.
Falling for Ramos by Sue Brown is the tale of a lifetime of love in 3 parts. We see the love grow. We see it crash and burn. We see the second chance. If you follow me at all, you know I have a soft spot for second chance romances. One thing that is often lacking, however, is the connection to the original relationship. In Falling For Ramos, you fall in love with Andro and Colin at 19, break your heart with them at 25, and struggle with them at 35. All at the same time.
Colin and Ramos are soul mates. Anyone who sees them together can’t dispute that… but life does not always work out no matter how in love two men may be. This is the case with Ramos and Colin. When family obligations, stubborn minds, and half a world break them apart, they both try to move on. At least one of them is stubborn enough to try to get them back together.
Falling for Ramos is not a comfortable read. Even as they are falling in love, you know the end is near. You are learning about their heartbreak along-side their passion. You are watching the implosion along-side the aftermath. You can never settle into one emotion before Brown is ripping you in another direction. Following the story and keeping it all straight can be a challenge, but it is a challenge worth taking.
