Blurb:

Cain Hawkins is a master at suppressing his desires. After all, he’s been doing it for over one hundred years. What Cain wants more than anything is a man to love, but he knows that no matter how much he craves it, it can never be. Because Cain is a Naverto demon, and to desire another man is more than forbidden, it is an act that will bring about his execution. So he keeps to himself, working with abused horses on a small patch of land, all on his own. But then his brother makes a request that Cain cannot refuse.

Luke Forrester just wants a job and a place where he can recover from the brutal beating he took at the hands of his former boss. He dreams of a place where he can work with the horses that he loves so much. The fact that he’s had a crush on Cain Hawkins, his best friend’s brother-in-law, for more than two years threatens everything. But Luke’s determined not to screw things up. He will do the work and prove to Cain that it wasn’t a mistake to hire him, and he won’t allow the fact that he desires something more with Cain to interfere with his work one bit.

But working and living in such close proximity can test the best of intentions, and when one kiss leads to something much, much more, Cain must open himself in a way that he never has before. He must trust Luke completely and tell him everything about who and what he is. And together, they must find a way to fight for Cain’s humanity and save him from his demon clan before he is found out and they are ripped apart forever.

Publisher’s Note: This book contains explicit sexual content, graphic language, and situations that some readers may find objectionable: male/male sexual practices (anal/oral sex) and strong violence.

My View:

Falling is book 2 in a series but can very easily be read as a standalone.

Cain Hawkins is a virginal demon who has been on earth for over a century. A Naverto Demon, he left his home in Wales and now lives with his chosen family on a ranch in Montana rehabilitating abused horses. He has watched his brother fall in love and it hurts, the pain is there every day because Cain knows for a fact that he can never have the same. Cain wants a man in his life but to take one would mean death. Naverto Demons cannot have same sex relationships, their rules are stringent and breeding comes first.

Luke Forrester is recovering from an awful assault when he comes to work for Cain. He is badly damaged, kind of like the horses he has come to help look after, but throughout the book his confidence grows and we find a tough man underneath the scars and bruises, an honourable man who would do anything for his family and who has his sights firmly set on his boss.

The beginning and the end of this book kept me engrossed, the ending has a lot of violence as Cain fights for his life and a future with Luke. The middle dragged and was filled with many sex scenes after Cain decides Luke may just be worth dying for. The ending is painful and brutal and has left me wanting to read Caleb’s story.
