Publisher's Summary

I hired him to protect my body, but who will protect my heart?

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.

Great Listen

I loved this audiobook. It captured my attention from very beginning and till the end I was unable to put it down. I enjoyed following relationship between Ronan and Gabriel grow and develop despite parallel family trust issues they both had to overcome. Narrator did an amazing job with story telling and voices, he made this a perfect listening experience.

I loved it!

This book!! OMG! My heart broke for Ronan, Fall Guy was a amazing and emotional read. Ronan Michaels is being released from jail after six years for a white collar crime, six years missing his family and no having contact with his sister. After being released he didn’t expect his life been threaten. Gabriel Sachs can’t work any more as a bodyguard to his later employee he leaves feeling betrayed. Watching Ronan been attacked makes Gabriel intervened and offer his services to Ronan, he is intrigued about him and spending time together both learn their secrets, now they just have find trust, redemption and love. The journey between Ronan and Gabriel is bumpy at times, both have trust issues and they have to work to eran that trust and realize that the best that would happen to them is finding the one. I love both Ronan and Gabriel so much, they were amazing and I love watching them together and support each other. What sacrifice are you willing to make for does you love? did they really deserve that sacrifice? Can you trusted them again? Kale Williams have become one of my favorites narrators, I love how can brings to life a character, Ronan and Gabriel voices are great on this audio! Highly recommended!

Raw deal to real love

This story was heartbreaking, frustrating, infuriating and yet lovely. There were times I literally was yelling out loud at the injustice and pure lack of accountability shown by Ronan's family. But strong, steadfast Gabriel came to the rescue and pushed until he found out the truth of the matter. I loved these two men.

Mending the Broken Bits

This was a really good character-driven story. Watching Ronan and Gabriel find each other and then find their way forward with each other kept me engaged. The author did a good job of making me care about these characters and the narrator brought them to life. There are some truly unlikable secondary characters but that just gives Ronan and Gabriel a chance to deepen their bond. Kale Williams did an excellent job narrating and lent depth and heart to the story. Such a great listen!

Amazing listen!

I absolutely love this book even though it broke my heart! Gabriel is exactly who Ronan needs. I love seeing how their relationship develops and how supportive they are with each other. Then Kale Williams brings this emotional story to life. I just can't tell you how much I love this story so much!

emotional journey

Ronan's so called "blood family" made me physically ill with how ungrateful, selfish , and
manipulative they were to him. Gabe's dad was incredibly weak to give in to his second wife's
request/demands. How cold and hurtful. I liked the resolution and relationship building Gabe and Ronan chose for their families. I also liked
how supportive and caring each was of the other. They had both been to the depths of despair and were climbing their own stairway to heaven together. I voluntarily listened to a free copy of this and am giving an honest review. The narrator did a great job bringing the characters and story to life.

Loved!

Kale Williams does an amazing job of bringint Fall Guy to life.
This felt like such an intimate look into the lives of two men falling in love with each other. From their first meeting you could feel the spark of something between them. Each man is looking for what is missing in his life. What they find together helps heal the wounds from their past.

I love how Felice Stevens writes characters that emotionally resonate with the readers. Ronan and Gabriel will find their way into your heart and take up a permanent residence there.

Seeing these guys deal with some pretty big losses and betrayals yet still be able and willing to open their hearts up to each other is beautiful. The support and understanding they show each other is amazing. They refuse to let their past pain define who they are.
Another 5 star read from Felice! I'm never disappointed when I read one of her stories.

An intense story, great narration!

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 the audiobook. 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!

Highly recommended!

Heartwarming and so emotional!

I loved this beautiful standalone by Felice Stevens. Ronan ad Gabriel are such wonderful, caring and giving characters! (Too much so, maybe, as I wouldn’t be as forgiving as they were, especially Ronan!). I loved everything about the story. They are both mature characters, and that showed in the way they faced things and their relationship, without unnecessary drama, lack of communication or flat-out stubbornness!
Kale Williams is always an added bonus to any story, and I loved his performance to pieces!

An unusual story of unselfish love

The premise of this story drew me in from the beginning, it was like no other I’ve ever encountered. But that’s pretty standard for a Felice Stevens novel - originality is certainly one of her strong points; that and characterisation in my opinion.

I felt very sorry for Ronan, he was stitched up by his sister and her husband and all they needed to do to make him feel that spending years in prison for a crime he did not commit was worth it, was to simply love him and be there for him on his release. But of course there would have been no story had that been the case.

I felt slightly uncomfortable with the way he seemed to roll over and take their selfish and cruel rejection of him and I wished he’d stood up for himself sooner. But human nature being what it is, we none of us know how anyone else will react, so that’s not a criticism.

Thank goodness for Gabriel who comes into Ronan’s life accidentally and not only sees him, but ends up saving him and giving him back some self respect.

Both characters are well drawn although I didn’t really feel the pull of their attraction to each other as much as I have in previous Felice Stevens books. Still I enjoyed the story on the whole.

Kale Williams, as always, gives a stellar performance. He and the author work so well together. When I see his name on a book I will almost always buy it. But when I see his name coupled with Felice Stevens it’s a certainty.

A lovely story of a truly unselfish love for some pretty diabolical people. Thank goodness for ‘Angel Gabriel’ and his love.

A true lovestory

A story about family, love, trust - and betrayal (no cheating within the MC). This hit pretty close to home for me! The balance between feeling hurt and letting things stay in the past. Where the limit is for you is a decision only you can make.
Kale Williams is an amazing narrator!

Worth the read

I liked this book, the narrorator was fantastic! I will try not to give too much away in my review but I did feel like the best friend would need more convincing to be onboard with the relationship.
