"Fuck." I slam my fist into the desk before me and feel nothing but rage. I need to go after her. I need to explain. "But isn't this what you wanted?" The voice inside my head whispers. "Isn't this a nice easy way out?"

Everything Max has done has always been at a cost to others around him. He wasn't about to make that mistake again. No longer will his selfish ways punish t

~~~Dee's Review~~~

The story picks up and flows well from the cliffhanger in Escape Down Under, book one. The unexpected drama, tension, mystery and excitement continues to build and holds the reader captive. The trauma and stress overwhelms Jess and causes Max's demons to resurface.

The ending did not come up to the breathless cliffhanger of book one but I deeply hope there is a third book! I really want to see Stella get her just reward. Excellent story, well written as to characters, events, a

This book follows on from Escape Down Under, it was left on a cliff-hanger where Jess saw Max and Stella (someone sort this women out already!!) kissing. Jess being scared of letting anyone in again, does the only thing she knows and runs. Max thinks that leaving Jess alone is best for everyone. He is scared he will hurt Jess like he has everyone else around him. But Max soon comes to realise that life is nothing without Jess by his side. So he manages to talk to Jess and explain everything that ...more

I was given this ARC in return for a honest review . This is the second part to Escape Down Under where we first meet Max and Jess.

After reading Escape Down Under I have been in desperate need of getting my hands on more Max, and yes this was definitely worth the wait !

"Escape " left us with a cliff-hanger where Jess caught what looked to be Max and Stella kissing in his office . Max knows this as being a misunderstanding but how to tell Jess and make her understand ? Max thinks that the best

Well I devoured Escape Down Under only to be left needing more.....enter Fallen Down Under ��

This book starts off were ESU left off, and you're not left in the dark for too long, but don't think that means things will be peachy straight off.

I loved how strong Jess is in this book and how Max has learned and accepted this trait of the woman he adores. They can't escape the attraction to each other it's too strong. As with life, it gets in the way! So expect some drama and twists to keep you on yo

Fallen Down Under picks up right where Escape Down Under left off... and it didn't disappoint.

After the first book, I wanted strangle Stella - well, that feeling only got worse. Without giving anything anyway, the woman is a nut! And she's out to stir up a whole lot of trouble for Jess and Max.

We get to find out a little more about both main characters in this book, which gave them an extra dimension and made them even more relatable. And the chemistry between them only gets hotter. I especiall

~~I received this in exchange for my honest opinion~~

This is the second book in the series and it has only gotten better. A little more drama, and something that is going on, but Jess can't figure it out. She has heard from her friends back in London, and she just knows there is something wrong. Her relationship with Max, well, that is complicated. Im not going to go into anymore than that. Otherwise I will give everything away.

S.M has done it again. She has made me want more. This is a short a

wow after how part one finished I couldn't wait to read this and wasn't disappointed. This picks up right where part one ended, Jess is dealing with Max pushing her away while getting on with the project and worrying about them but gets a call from London someone has hacked the computer and files are missing so she has to go back. You really get to know the characters more even with their dramas you can't help wanting to shake the pair of them but hug them too and you are willing it all to go we ...more

After Escape Down Under, I have been impatiently waiting for Mr. Wild's return and boy, was he worth the wait. Fallen Down Under continues with Max and Jess' story. It has twists and turns that will keep you peeled to every page. We learn more about the delectable Max, pulling us in deeper, ready for the third book. I really love this author, she writes about characters that touch you...feeling the emotions they feel. I simply CANNOT wait for Mr. Wild. A deserving 5 star read from me.

Again the story is fantastic but the EDITING is HORRIBLE!!!! There are so many ridiculous errors in this series that make you re-read lines over again thinking you read things wrong. I would love to see the next one come out without these types of errors.

Fallen down under is book #2 in the Down Under series. I loved book one Escape Down Under here's a link to my review. I was lucky enough to be given an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review so here goes.....

Mac, max, Max where has all that alpha gone????

Book one in this series is all raw passion and desire but this book is emotional and tactical.

I still adore Max but he does loose a few man points for jus

Starting off where Escape Down Under left us dangling over the edge of a cliff, Fallen Down Under continues the story of the Jess and the delicious Max Wild. Jess tries to settle in to working in Australia and forms a great bond with Max's sister Liss, I liked the growth of this friendship as I really like the fun-loving Liss. We start to get a peek into Max's past too and I'm intrigued to find out more. The story ramps up as we here of troubles back at Stanton's in London and Jess heads back ho ...more

This second instalment picks up right where Escape Down Under left off. Poor Jess is left devastated by what she finds. Her instincts tell her to go home to England, but her pride makes her stay. Miserable, she tries to continue on with her job.
There was more than one occasion were I could have quite happily punched some of the characters, Stella and Max for sure.
There is the added drama for Jess of her mother appearing, their troubled relationship has always left Jess feeling less than adequa

This being the second in the trilogy, I had hopes it would be better than the first. Sadly, it wasn't.

I had the same issues with the typos and incorrect words (be instead of me)

I also had issues with the whole Stella storyline. I am also not a fan of women who flee whenever there is controversy.

The further I got into the book the more I wondered if these people ever worked. It was hard to figure out timelines because things jumped without warning. One paragraph it's morning and the next thing y

WOW! Max Wilde is back and sexier than ever!

Fallen Down Under carries on straight from book one where we left Max in a quite a compromising situation with his PA Stella.

You find out more about Jess and Max in this book. If you didn’t love Max in book one, you certainly will in this. S.M. Phillips has a way with words that just makes you love her books. The story flows very well and will keep you wanting more.

Fallen Down Under picks up where Escape Down Under leaves off. Jess is really liking the project she is working on but of course when it comes to Max and her there are ups and downs.

Jess is forced to head back home to London to try to determine who had tampered with files back at her office, the purpose of the tampering and how can she fix the problem if at all possible.

I would recommend that you continue Jess's story to find out if Max and Jess can take their relationship to other than a work

Now this book really surpassed my expectations. I loved Max in Escape Down Under. But in this book, I became obsessed with him. I can really feel the love they have for each other was so strong that despite the heartache Jess underwent, she was willing to fight for Max and win him back. Luckily Max also felt the same and their reunion was so grand. I laughed, cried and swooned my hearts out in this book. There were issues left hanging that I’m so excited to read the next book. Again there’s the ...more
Great story with poor editing.

Aaaaaahhhhh, I can't wait till the next book. Things just keep getting better and better! I'm completely in love with Max! Jess is getting stronger and a I've gotten a better understanding of where she's coming from and damn if I don't feel for her.

The editing is very poor, but the story is so good I'm over looking it.

This story picks up where book 1 ended. Honestly, I do find the story a little bit all over the place. Lots and lots of grammar and spelling mistakes that drove me crazy.
