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 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
Format:Format Kindle
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 Beautiful angst and believable romance. 27 mars 2012
Par BarkLessWagMore - 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 Such a beautiful and believable love story! 6 août 2012
Par R.Parklane - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
A story inspired by the powerful but so very sad "Brokeback Mountain". Of course I have to read it since I know I can get a good ending as this is a MM romance. I was not disappointed. This love story spanning decades is so well written, touching and believable with such emotional depth. Suspenseful too as I find myself holding my breath in that chapter involving the brothers, dogs and love letters! Have to say I wanted to slap Alejo in the beginning. But by the end both guys have gotten under my skin and all I can do is feel completely satisfied and happy with what I have read. I do not favor flashbacks much but the flashbacks in this one is so well done that they are the best parts of their love story. For those of us who want so much more from our MM love story, read this.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 This is how you write an original story inspired by another work of art 9 juillet 2012
Par Sirius - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I love this author's stories, but when I bought this one for some reason hearing that this work was inspired by "Brokeback mountain" made me put it aside and only pick it up today. Oh I had no doubt that this author will give all the necessary credit to the work of art that inspired her and will create something original based on it, no what worried me is the ending of Brokeback mountain. I was worried that this work may also have overload of angst and the ending I usually do not care for (of course there are always exceptions to the rule). I should not have worried. Other reviewers already went into detailed description of plot and characters, so I won't do that. I will just say that both Bobby and Alejo felt very real and sympathetic characters to me and their connection was so strong and I loved it so much. I loved everything about these guys - how their culture influenced them so much, their struggles, their mistakes and their triumphs (the main one for me that they finally managed to end up together. I loved how "Brokeback mountain" was incorporated in the story, of course I did.
