Every relationship leaves something behind. Dumped by his sugar daddy, part-time model Scott Mackenzie somehow ends up owning an abandoned church in rural Ontario. He dreams of using it for gay weddings, even if he'll never have one of his own.
Joe Sutton is trying to keep his family together after his parents' deaths. Between the family ranch, his brother's construction company, and commitments around town, he doesn't have time for a relationship. But Mackenzie is hard to ignore.
As both men fight their growing attraction, challenges to Mackenzie's business threaten their relationship. If he can't make it work, he'll have to crawl back to the city in defeat. But the only solution involves risking the ranch Joe loves, and each man has to decide how much he'll sacrifice for the other.

The sugar daddy and the luxuries are gone. What's a kept boy to do? Find a studly rancher, of course.
Mackenzie had been recently dumped and is no longer a kept boy. He's not only new in town, but in a small town and has recently purchased an old church in hopes of restoring it for a destination wedding hot spot. It's not so bad though, especially when he had some hunky twins helping him with the restoration.
One of the men helping Mackenzie was the quiet and broody Joe. He has got that strong and silent type down. He's a great character and the way he loves and was there for his family was perfect. Adding on to the strong and silent type, he's a bit stubborn. So stubborn that he had a hard time seeing past his own ideas and thoughts. He can be harsh and, frankly, kind of abrupt and rude. He took care of his family, he takes care of the ranch and he's a guardian for his nephew. He has a lot on his plate and doesn't think he has time for anyone else in his life.
Mackenzie was cute, fun and his determination was admirable. No matter how much was against him or the fact that he really had no clue what he was doing, he wasn't giving up on his church. He's a great character and very likeable. He grew and changed a lot during the course of this story. He went from having a sugar daddy and having everything given to him, to living independently and struggling to have his dream come true. I loved it and I loved him. I loved how he dealt with his struggles and came out on the other side.
These men found each other and agreed that there will be nothing more between them than something casual. Of course, they find that hard to do when they start to develop feelings for each other. There were a few misunderstandings between them and they gave up on each other rather easily because of it. There wasn't as much of a fight to be together as I would have liked to see.
THE FALL is a good, solid read. It wasn't really anything I haven't read before, but one I would still recommend.
