Stop Me Falling: Cale Fallon

Stop Me Falling

Cale Fallon

An erotic short story of about 8000 words.

Paul is a man resigned to being one of those men who sleeps around and never falls in love. Then he meets David, who’s training for the next Olympics, and things change.

WARNING – Contains graphic scenes of sex between two men.

This was a hot short story, but in many ways it was about much more than the sex.  Paul and David are two lonely and hurting men who meet in a bar and quickly fall in lust with each other.  Their hot hookup turns into a sort of intimate confessional, in which we learn about the hurts and self-revelations each man has had to face in leading up to this moment, this shared time and space.

Fallon writes in a very easy and flowing style, making the story a quick and satisfying read.  He does a good job of weaving together emotions, backstory, and sex.  I always find sex much hotter when the writer gives the reader a reason to care about the characters and for the characters to grow through sex (and not just in the dirty double-entendre way).  Sex can and should be used in fiction as an element of character development — something that Fallon very capably and carefully does.

While Stop Me Falling is a short story and a quick read, it’s a very satisfying one.  Fallon has used these 8,000 words to craft a complete story — including characters who grow and develop and a relationship that flourishes (and hits a few rocky patches) — and he does it without rushing the story.  It’s very well written.
