The Spiral Down (The Fall Up #2) by Aly Martinez ~ 5 Soaring Stars!!!
“I was afraid to fly.
He made me soar.
After years of climbing the ladder of success in the music industry, I finally had everything I could want.
Yet I still found myself wandering through life alone.
Captain Evan Roth was the one man I never saw coming.
Tall, dark, mysterious… Straight.
We were both damaged beyond repair and searching for something so elusive we weren’t sure it even existed.
But, when two broken souls collide in midair, falling is a given.
I just never expected to crave the spiral down.”
SQUEEZEEEEE!!!! This book – I am speechless. Aly Martinez did it again. I fell in love with this author’s writing since On the Rope Series. She has continued to surprise us with better and better characters and stories. I think I got on the Aly train and I am never getting off. This book is a MM standalone – it’s doesn’t even matter to me FM, MM, FF, orange/banana – this is TRUE LOVE and love is love.
Henry was first introduced to us in The Fall Up – I totally fell in love with him and secretly hope he will get his own story. So when I heard Aly was creating The Spiral Down I was so excited and let me tell you Aly does not disappoint!!! Henry and Evan’s love journey is nothing short of PERFECTION. This book is hilarious, sexy, sweet, and intense all at the same time.
“You sure that’s going to be a good idea? I’m not real fond of emergency landings due to a passenger trying to claw their way out of a window.”
Henry is a big star — charismatic, charming and handsome. He is also sweet, down to earth and adorable, although you can’t tell it during the first part of the book. All we get in the beginning is the diva, drama queen Henry. OMG!!! I was laughing so hard through the first part of the book my stomach rolled. Henry is afraid of flying and with his big-star status, he feels entitled to demand the best pilot out there … someone says MARVERICK. That is when Henry meets Evan. Evan was not meant to be on that flight but faith brought the two broken souls together. Evan is a hot, sexy, ex-military man turned sexy civilian pilot. Fresh off a broken relationship, he doesn’t have time to mull over what’s lost because whirlwind Henry came crashing into his life, causing turbulence and mayhem. Evan and Henry are instantly attracted to each other. The chemistry is palpable… the love scene… ahem! A lot of naughty and oh soooo HOT. Henry and Evan are vastly different — from their personality to their upbringings to their career choice. But they do understand each other at a deep level. Unfortunately, they both have demons to overcome if there is any chance at happiness.
“Being in love was like a never-ending flight through the clouds. Storms were likely. Turbulence a given. But they didn’t last forever. The clouds always returned.”
Henry and Evan’s story is definitely sweet and sexy but more than that, the story is about self discovery, freeing yourself from the haunted past, knowing who you truly are and who you want to become. You choose your own destiny. Henry and Evan’s story teaches us all that true love is unconditional.
“This – tonight- is the moment where you cease to exist and we truly begin.”
In this book, the author gives us a glimpse of the Sam and Levee marriage life. What a treat that was. I love Levee – she is such a sweet but tough-love mama bear. Levee is happily pregnant and Sam is still sexy as ever. Even Henry could not keep his hands off Sam’s ass Wink wink… LOL. Henry’s sister Robin has a rough go around early in life until she meets Henry. She is in deep trouble and it seems only one man can truly cure her. I am praying Ms. Aly will give us Robin and Carter’s story (and SOON please). Seriously, I can not get enough of Aly’s stories. She is one of those authors that is an instant “one click” for me. I don’t need to know the title, the cover, the blurb … if she is writing it, I am reading it!!!! PERIOD!!!
Thank you Ms. Aly for such an amazing story full of witty humor, adorable characters and extraordinary love between two humans. I love the epilogue – such a perfectly sweet ending. You really made my day!!!! This book is a MUST READ guys! You will believe in true everlasting love again.
“You are my exception.”
Who is your exception? Happy reading! Cheers!!!
