Dusty Davis always feels like the odd man out at the after-parties for the band.  The other band members all have that special someone in their life, Dusty is the only loner until he meets the beautiful J. Unfortunately, J’s identity and Dusty’s wishful thinking of J’s identity do not match.

Finally Fallen is the third book in The Dark Angels Series. The name of the series is also the name of the rock band. Dusty is the drummer. The plot illustrates some interesting issues. The two main cause-and-effect issues are forced to be in denial and rape recovery. Dusty’s issue is dealing with a religious fanatic mother who turned to the church as a way to hide her own misery. Being gay is a sin in his mother’s small mind so early on, Dusty chose denial for the sake of peace in the family. The traumatic events of his past raped J’s mind as well as his body; J suffers panic attacks if someone invades J’s personal space.

Finally Fallen is a charming and enjoyable story of Dusty and J’s journey of sexual discovery. Because of the love they already share, J and Dusty explore non-invasive activities to express their intimate desire.
