Présentation de l'éditeur

They should have spent the past 22 years together, but life took some unexpected turns for Bobby Gallegos and Alejo Sandoval. Heartbreak and rejection can harden the hearts of two passionate, stubborn men. One, deeply devout, wanted to attend college. One, who perfected a tough act to deceive his brothers, might have followed his dad to prison. Now, at 40 years old, they maintain a long-distance relationship as sex buddies, who don't quite trust each other.

Their lives have sharply diverged. One is now divorced with two teenagers, who bring him joy and despair. One has just had a near-death experience on the job. When Bobby returns to Albuquerque, he will use sex, persuasion, and memories of their shared past to try to convince Alejo to take a chance on him and reach for the future together that they were meant to share.

Publisher's Note: This gay romance novel contains explicit sexual content, graphic language, and situations that some readers may find objectionable, including male/male sexual practices.

This book is 41,000 words. Thank you for reading!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Beautiful angst and believable romance. 27 mars 2012
Par Barks Book Nonsense - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
4  stars

I've read and reviewed two of Val Kovalin's m/m romances and enjoyed them both but this one is hands down my favorite. It's sweet, romantic, sexy and perfectly angsty. Just the way I love a great romance!

Bobby and Alejo met when they were six years old and became best friend and secret lovers when they figured out they were attracted to each other as teens. But life and Alejo's fears pulled their lives in two very different directions and they have spent the bulk of their adult lives living separate lives. Alejo took over running the family restaurant at eighteen, married a woman and raised twins who are now eighteen. Broken hearted Bobby became a successful attorney and has tried to live a life without Alejo in it. Though he has had several male lovers, his relationships never seem to work out for very long because Alejo, even after all this time, is the one he truly wants. The two get together occasionally over the years, unable to resist the pull of each other, but Alejo's obligations and guilt always pull them apart. Even with Alejo's children nearly grown and his now ex-wife on the verge of remarrying he is unable to admit out in the open what he truly wants. And all he wants is Bobby.

Oh the beautiful angst! Can you feel it? I'm getting all bleary eyed just recalling it.

Alejo is the guy who lives to please everyone except himself (and of course poor Bobby who loves him so much it hurts). Raised in a strict Catholic family, those values stuck and he constantly worries about what people will think if he comes out and how it will affect others around him - especially his kids. He coddles his surly son Carlos who has turned into a headstrong, spoiled brat who can't seem to get out of his own way. Alejo is always there making excuses and smoothing things over so his son won't hurt. As a parent I can understand why Alejo acts the way he does and my heart breaks for him even when it's clear he is making things worse for Carlos. Alejo's daughter Josephina brings a nice balance to all of the Carlos drama. She is intelligent, intuitive and only wants to see her Daddy happy. She is an easy character to love and I thought these two kids were very well developed and played important roles in the story.

The love story which spans decades is told through flashbacks. I admit that in the very beginning I was a little leery of the setup and feared it wouldn't work for me. Alejo and Bobby start out the story as occasional sex buddies with a long past. Alejo can't seem to fit Bobby into his life and I felt terrible for Bobby who is happy with scraps he can get because he is obviously madly in love. But as the author exposed bits of their tumultuous past and advanced their current relationship, I began to understand both of them, love Bobby even more, and felt that achy pain in the chest that only comes when reading an amazing romance. The heat between these two is something rare and beautiful to behold, and their love is 100% believable. The only slight niggle is that the story came to an end too fast and ended on a flashback. I wanted more current day happiness but I'm greedy like that! If you're in the mood for some well written angsty love I highly recommend adding Fall Into The Sun to your ereader.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Reminds all of us that life is too short to waste 13 juin 2013
Par Neil in Morgan Hill - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
The second book I have read by Val Kovalin and each I have given a 5-star rating. A lot has been said in previous reviews that fully compliment Val's novel "Fall Into The Sun". I especially enjoy the storyline and the development of the characters. It is obvious that Val considers writing a craft that deserves thought, attention and believability. As a 60 year old gay man who has lost so many friends, it is nice to read a story that celebrates the longevity of a deeply held love that burns brightly even when separated from one's soul mate. What I so enjoy about this series is it is a love story that happens to a gay couple.

Alejo and Bobby share such a love that goes even deeper than romantic love or even love for one's family. It is the type of love that we long for in our hearts and we want to believe exists even if we don't experience it ourselves. As I have read both books, I find that dreamer within me celebrating what Alejo and Bobby share. It is a rare gift. If you look closely, you will see it expressed between couples that have touched our lives. Perhaps you have experienced it yourself and due to unfortunate circumstances, that loved one is no longer part of your life.

I highly recommend "Fall Into The Sun", especially for those readers who like a strong storyline that is full of life experience beyond romance and erotic pleasures. The balance that Val Kovalin has kept in "Fall into the Sun" is like enjoying a healthy balanced diet that fulfills all your reading appetites and touches each of your emotions.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Amazing! 4 juillet 2012
Par Violetta Vane - Publié sur Amazon.com

I'm really not into contemporary stories, but I'm so glad I took a chance on this book, because it was incredibly enjoyable, emotionally resonant and deeply satisfying. Everything was just a little larger than life, exciting, enough that my jaw dropped in several places--that scene with Bobby and his three brothers and the dogs and the love letters!--but the realistic details always kept it anchored.

I love that all the characters were so three dimensional. We've got an ex-wife who is neither evil nor saintly nor conveniently dead. And kids who are real kids (that is, occasionally they act like complete jerks!).

Almost every single character was Latino (Chicano), and there was a really wide variety of representation: people who accept traditional roles, people who reject them, people who are narrow-minded, and open-minded, sad losers, ambitious hardworking winners, everyone from A to Z. Knowing so much about Bobby and Alejo's families and community made them really come alive for me. Their powerful but very complicated love for each other shone through at every point in their history. They're both mature men, as well, and the maturity of their love makes the story seem so much more meaningful to me than all the ones with insta-lovey tropes.

The writing style was clean, powerful and sophisticated. The metatextual stuff about Brokeback Mountain struck me as very thoughtful. Overall, a great story, easy to read (but that does NOT mean it's slight) and I'll be looking for more by the author and eagerly awaiting the second in the series, "Reach for the Moon."

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Intensely Realistic Read That Tugs at Your Heart 3 juin 2012
Par J. Faltys - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
Val Kovalin has created an intensely emotional story greatly influenced by the movie Brokeback Mountain. Not only is the movie mentioned often but the rollercoaster relationship between Alejo and Bobby is very reminiscent of the main characters from the movie. Their love story has an epic feel to it as the reader is shown the first spark of their feelings for each other as youngsters through their turbulent teen years to their realizations that they're wasting the time they have left apart. At every turn this story tugs at your heartstrings and even after the last page is turned, the lives of these two men stay with you.

Alejo had a difficult upbringing with brothers that were violent with numerous addictions. He was mentally and physically abused and his unplanned coming out led to violence and him leaving town and never looking back to make a future for himself. Being with Bobby gave him a sense of safety and feelings of being valued and loved. In contrast, Bobby's family were loving but extremely religious so coming out was not an option for him so he tried to live his life as his religious beliefs warranted. He treated Alejo as his dirty little secret, drawn to him yet never showing the truth in public. These differences carried through the years as Alejo embraced what they had while Bobby fought things every step of the way but ultimately coming back every time. I felt sympathetic towards Alejo throughout the entire story. Coming from the background he did of constantly having to clean up his family's messes to desperately wanting to be acknowledged by the only man he truly loved and constantly being kept a secret made me resent Bobby at times for his unknowingly callous treatment of Alejo. Bobby was a coward when it came to matters of the heart and his religion definitely kept him shackled to his life built on lies.

Alejo and Bobby's early sexual interludes were fumbling yet sweet. As they matured and with each encounter being but for a fleeting moment there was always a sense of longing and desperation in the intensity of their coming together. These interludes, once they ended, made me ache for what they could have if Bobby only let himself be happy.

The Mexican culture is beautifully on display with its beliefs and expectations of of how a man should act greatly affecting both Bobby and Alejo. The descriptions of the city and culture fully immersed the reader in the story and added an extra layer to the story. There's an intriguing number of secondary characters that greatly influenced the relationship between Bobby and Alejo with many of them appealing and one or two extremely exasperating.

This was a wonderful story that pulls you in from the very first page and stays with you long after the final page is turned. Every up and down these two men experienced, I felt right along with them. Readers wanting a realistic story full of rollercoaster emotions should definitely give Fall Into the Sun a try.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An Amazing Book 11 avril 2012

Reviewed for JoyfullyJay blog on 4/10/12:

Rating: 4.75

Bobby Gallegos and Alejo Sandoval met when they were 6. It was 1972 at Our Lady of Sorrows Catholic Church. Alejo was being picked on by three boys who had stolen his marble. Bobby came to his rescue and into his life. From that time forward, they were inseparable even though their families were so different. Bobby came from a rough family of four boys whose dad was in prison. His older brothers were petty criminals following in their fathers footsteps who only saw the youngest boy as a punching bag. Alejandro's family were strict, ran a family restaurant and was devoutly Catholic. But none of that mattered as the years passed and their connection deepened into love.

The summer of 1982 changed all that with a series of devastating events that would separate the boys for 22 years. Over time, Alejo got married, and had a family and ran the family restaurant, his bisexual tendencies buried deeply in the closet. Bobby moved away, went to law school in Houston, Texas where he was now a gay successful criminal lawyer. Only once did they try to reconnect but bad timing and distance interfered.

Now they are both 40, their lives at an impasse. Alejo is divorced and Bobby has returned to Albuquerque to persuade Alejo to make a change so they can finally get their happily ever after they have been denied for so long. Bobby has seven days. Will it be enough time?

Let me say right from the start that I love stories about first loves getting their second chance at happiness so this pushed all the right buttons. Val Kovalin also did such a wonderful job with her characters that identifying with them was easy. There is never any doubt as to who these men are and how their pasts molded them. Both men have real depth and layers to their characters, including their flaws which help drive them apart.

Bobby was the easiest of the two to empathize with. His obstacles to overcome are so clearly black and white, starting with an abusive family that he managed to escape from while staying true to who he is. Alejo had it much tougher in a way. His parents love, expectations and strict adherence to the Catholic church buried Alejandro's own career choices and sexuality under a blanket of guilt and parental love. Now at 40 and getting ready to attend his ex-wife's marriage, his children, especially his wayward son, keep him from reaching out to Bobby and a new future. The reader's frustrations with Alejo's indecision and inability to parent his son mount with Bobby's . Yet, so skillfully is Alejo drawn that his rational is clear and in keeping with his history. Both the reader and his lover understand his actions even if you don't like them. It's your flaws that make you vulnerable and oh so human. So you are never ready to give up on Alejo and neither is Bobby. I thought their entire relationship realistic as it grows and adjusts from ages 6 to 40.

I really enjoyed this book and notice that it is called Fall Into The Sun Bobby and Alejo #1. I am hoping that means we will be seeing more of these two and their hard won future together. Keeping my fingers crossed.

Cover: I loved this cover. The models were perfect for Bobby and Alejo. Just wonderful from the expressions in their eyes and that they seem more in keeping with the age of the characters. Great job.
