Alec Anderson is cop with a problem. He
has several murders to solve that seem unrelated with no leads
to follow. Now the brass has decided to saddle him with an
English cop from an “exchange” program. How is Alec supposed
to do his job if he has to baby-sit a cop from England?
Christian Wetherly is a mage and the
Director of the Bureau of Dark Magic Affairs in England. He’s
been looking for Rogan, a rogue mage. He thinks he has found
tracks of him in the US because of a string of unsolved
murders that look like his work. Christian needs to
investigate, to be sure, as he needs to stop Rogan from
accomplishing his goals. His best option to get information
is to pretend to be an ordinary cop.
Alec and Christian team up to solve the
murders, but Christian can’t let Alec figure out that he is a
mage. This is rather difficult as Alec is a witness to things
that can’t be explained. Christian suspects that Alec might
be mage and has no idea of it. Alec and Christian are also
fighting the attraction they feel for one another. Alec
fights the pull between them because he lost his lover 18
months ago and he’s not ready to move on. Christian fights
the attraction because he is afraid to admit to his family and
friends that he is gay. How are they going to manage to work
together when they are so busy hiding things from each other?
Falling is a book that
shows how the ordinary world can hide unexpected things. M.L.
Rhodes builds a wholly believable world where all the things
we imagine as magic exist alongside the ordinary world. You
fall in love with Alec and Christian from the very start. The
sexual tension between the two men is so high that when they
finally get together it will set you on fire. This book was
impossible to put down once I began reading, so Falling
has just been added to my keeper shelf and I will be looking
for other books by M. L. Rhodes. I definitely recommend this
book for m/m romance fans.
