1) I really admire the way Lane Hayes develops her characters. They grow on the page, not only for the reader--as we get to know them--but as living, breathing beings. By the end of Leaning into the Fall, I felt I'd actually spent time with Nick and Wes. I was as invested in their relationship as they were. I loved their conversations, even when they were arguing. I could hear their voices. So when these two got it together, it felt real--as did their heartache and eventual joy.
2) The characters were amazing. Nick with his social disorder and Wes with his infinite patience. I also liked the pace and the winery setting. This was a really good book.

Nick Jorgensen is a quirky genius. He's made a fortune in the competitive high tech field with his quick mind and attention to detail. He believes in hard work and trusting his gut. And he believes in karma. It’s the only thing that makes sense. People are difficult, but numbers never lie. In the disastrous wake of a broken engagement to an investor’s daughter, Nick is more certain than ever he isn’t relationship material. Wes Conrad owns a thriving winery in Napa Valley. The relaxed atmosphere is a welcome departure from his former career as a high-rolling businessman. Wes’s laid-back nature is laced with a fierceness that appeals to Nick. In spite of his best intention to steer clear of complications, Nick can’t fight his growing attraction to the sexy older man who seems to understand him. Even the broken parts he doesn’t get himself. However, when Wes’s past collides with Nick’s present, both men will have to have to decide if they’re ready to lean into the ultimate fall.
