Small town police officer Silas Sloane knows every resident of O’Leary, New York. He’s earned the love and respect of its citizens, though living under the small-town microscope grates on him. But though he’s good at his job, there’s one thing he’s not good at: commitments. Until Everett.
Widower Everett Maior, O’Leary’s newest citizen, came to the small town kicking and screaming. He never wanted to become primary caretaker for his grandfather, and has no interest in living a provincial life. Snarky and superstitious, he’s proficient at keeping people at a distance... Until he lays eyes Silas Sloane.
Strange occurrences are plaguing O’Leary, but even as danger looms, Silas and Everett find their growing attraction undeniable. Can they remain safe…and together…despite everything that threatens to tear them apart?
My Rating - 5 Stars!
The Fall by May Archer is a compelling romance, as it's an amazing story, with a super sweet and well written couple.
The setting of a small town is vital to this tale, as it's a place where everyone knows everyone's business. It creates mystery, rumors, assumptions and more. And the description of "the road" and woods are so well written that you can believe you are there.
Everett is mourning his ex husband, trying to move on after his death. When he agrees to move to town in order to care for his grandfather, he meets Silas, who's a cop in town. Silas is still mourning his brother, yet is also tired of the town's obsession with the complete and utter despair of his brother's death. Each year, a service is still held for his brother and the girl who was killed with him.
As the men come together, they are faced with obstacles, including some self-imposed ones. Both men learn a lot thanks to each other, as love and commitment is not everything Everett thought it was. And Silas needs to learn to trust, both his feelings and Everett.
