A Stella Review: Falling for Him by CL Mustafic

Standard

RATING 4 out of 5 stars

Doctor Gavin Addison’s marriage didn’t end on the friendliest of terms, and his estranged wife’s continual harassment has the local police visiting his home so often they’ve started calling him “the doc.” One of those cops, Officer Lex Turner, has a crush on the handsome doc, even though he knows there’s no chance the doc would ever consider dating a man.

A chance encounter on a crowded dance floor ends with both men in the same bed with the same woman—but with questionable results. When the doc wants to try that again, Lex becomes more involved than he’d dreamed possible as he helps his new friend navigate the kinkier side of sex. Knowing it’s just sex for Gavin, Lex finds it hard to keep his feelings hidden. But when Gavin finally figures out he has feelings for Lex that go beyond what a guy should feel for his buddy, will he let Lex convince him to take a chance with him—even if it turns both their lives upside down?

I’m so happy I got to review Falling For Him and discover a new author, especially when I find myself in a story well written and engaging like this one. I wasn’t so sure of reading it cause mfm scenes are not for me, but the blurb was too good to pass.

Infact I want to make a little premise. I tried and failed at reading the mfm scenes, I had to skip them so I actually had no clue what and if something really happened between Lex and Gavin (apart from the obvious). It’s my limit and I had not considered them in my rating, cause it’s my fault since I knew the scenes would have been there and I still decided to pick the book.

I love stories like Falling For Him. As you can understand from the blurb, Gavin is going through a very bad time and things will become impossible to live if it had not be for an incredible and well developed second characters cast. Sheila and Riley are the friends all of us should have, supporting and ready for fight for Gavin. And then there is Lex’s mum, Jean, a mother to whom life has taken a daughter and she is surviving a grief so deep just for the love of Lex. All these were real characters, persons I could identify with. Especially with Lex and how much he, and then Gavin, cares for him mum.

I’m very impressed by this new author, in my opinion she developed a solid novel, in the plot, in the cast, in the writing. Falling for Him is a story about love, friendship, it’s sweet and warm. I’ll keep my eyes open for more release from C.L. Mustafic.

I love everything Natasha Snow designs and this cover is no exception, it’s simple, fitting and the font and colors are amazing.
