2016 Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention: Falling by Sierra Riley (382-09-03-2016)

Funny, quirky, sweet, and oh, so adorable! I truly enjoyed this funny, cheery romance. As they say, opposites attract, and these two MCs couldn't be more opposites! I'm usually leery about gay for you stories, but the way the straight MC was portrayed in this one, it was just perfect, simply because he, Nick, the straight man and trainer, didn't fall for Jeremy, bookstore owner, from the get-go. Instead we see a gradual attraction. I salute the author for making it a slooow thing to come. Too many times I see a supposed straight man falling head over heels for a gay man. Nope, never happens that way...At all! So, Thank you, Sierra, for bringing such a sweet story for us to enjoy!

“You’re the best fake boyfriend I ever had.”

“Love exists… in books, at least.”
There’s no way bookstore owner Jeremy Bennett is going to his ten-year class reunion after accidentally drunk-posting on the reunion’s Facebook page and making himself sound a) much more interesting than he actually is, by b) claiming to do the kind of things he actually only reads about, and c) worse, also claiming to have a super hot boyfriend, when in reality, d) his dating history is more like the bastard love child of a trainwreck and a what-not-to-do reality show.

“I’m no good at romance.”
When one of Nick Roberts’ personal training clients mistakes him for the boyfriend of a new gym member, Nick decides to play along on a whim. After all, he can’t let the guy die from embarrassment, and besides, even though Nick isn’t gay, he has a feeling that the story behind the mistaken identity might prove to be the most fun he’s had since moving to Tulsa.

“I went from faking it to feeling it. Don’t tell me this isn’t real.”
Falling for your fake boyfriend is a guaranteed dating fail. Unless the stars align…

Falling is a steamy, standalone gay romance novel with a HEA and no cliffhangers. It is set in the same series-world as “Someday,” Danny and Mace’s story, and “Delicious,” Gavin and Ben’s story.
