Editorial Reviews

Booklist - Booklist Staff Review
"In this realistically gritty, sometimes violent, and gripping tale, Leone reveals the seamier side of society's manueuvering while she spins an unconventional romance between two unhappy people who find that love, like respect, can grow out of friendship and shared experiences and that new beginnings are indeed possible for those with the determination and courage to pursue them."
Romantic Times Magazine
"Fallen From Grace is an amazingly powerful, emotional and thought-provoking book... Leone's gift for storytelling shines in a truly provocative, gritty, tender and unforgettable story."
Bestselling author - Barbara Samuel
"Fallen From Grace is a romance novel as rich and adult as coffee laced with brandy. Laura Leone has delivered a dangerous brew of sin and redemption that goes where few romances dare to wander—a refreshing and deeply satisfying book. I loved it!"
Bestselling author - Teresa Medeiros
“Fallen From Grace is provocative, powerful, and passionate. Laura Leone leads the reader on a tender, sexy journey through the human heart."
Bestselling author - Susan Wiggs
"Laura Leone will keep readers up all night with this fascinating, passionate and emotional novel. This unusual love story, told with freshness and authenticity, gives new meaning to the term 'tortured hero' and illuminates the healing power of love."

    Loved this book

    This book was thoughtful, tender and very sensual. It's the story of a prostitute who is rescued from a life of meaningless sex. Old story? This story is about a MALE prostitute. He goes through life without love or friendship until a woman shows him what sex with love can be.

    Not Bad

    Very romantic. Instant attraction, but the couple get to know each other before jumping into bed. More than a lust story. Ryan is a stand up guy and Sarah is a strong, positive, thinking heroine. Fights for her man. Lots of drama but not over dramatic. They make each other better people.

    Great Story This story is about a Sarah and Ryan/Kevin.  Sarah

    Great Story

    This story is about a Sarah and Ryan/Kevin.  Sarah is 35 and she is a writer and she recently lost her book deal.  So to save money she sold her Condo, and moved into a Victorian house Apartment.
    Sarah shares the balcony with her neighbor Ryan/Kevin, there is an immediate attraction, but Sarah feels as though she is not the type of woman that would interest him, because she is older and she figures someone like him would not be interested in her.  After all he is a model (underwear).
    A friendship develops between Ryan/Kevin and Sarah.  Sarah is having lunch with her sister one day and the subject of Ryan/Kevin comes up, and Miriam (sister) makes a comment that maybe he is gay that is why he never made a move on Sarah.
    Ryan/Kevin has a secret, and if Sarah ever finds out his secret she would not want someone like him to touch her.
    What I liked about this story is the chemistry that these two people shared, I actually felt as though I knew them.  It is a love story, and the love between them was real and intense.  
    I rooted for this couple, I wanted things to work out between them, but obstacles were being thrown at them.  
    This is one story that I will remember

    A different kind of love sory

    Mystery award winning author Sara Diamond cannot believe her career seems over at thirty-five as her publishing company has dumped her for lack of sales growth. Steady reasonable profit means nothing in this industry. To save money, she sells her house and takes an apartment in nearby San Francisco.<P> Her new neighbor Ryan Kinsmore is a hunk ten years her junior, but both are attracted to one another at first sight. As she makes covert overtures, Sara wonders if her kind neighbor is gay or is too polite to tell her she is too old for intimacy with him. The truth is that Ryan desires her as much as she does him, but refuses to touch her. He fears that once she learns the truth that he is not a model as he told her, but instead works as an escort, a euphemism in his case for male prostitute that will destroy their friendship let alone any romance.<P> Readers will feel the sexual tension shooting between the lead couple, but also understand that Ryan cannot allow anything to happen between them because of his job. It is interesting the way the two protagonists have a common subplot and distinct separate subplots that all blend together into a powerful character driven story. Whereas Sara is more typical of the genre, Ryan is a unique player who must find a way to rise once he falls from grace when his beloved learns the truth.<P> Harriet Klausner
