This doesn't make you gay, Evan. It just makes you mine.

Book slump officially over! #DoublePeenForTheWin

It's no secret that I'm gaga for pretty much every Aly Martinez book that I read. There's just something about her writing that simply clicks with me. She manages to create heroes that have me head over ovaries for them each and every single time. Henry Alexander was the lovable secondary character from The Fall Up that I absolutely fell in love with. When Aly announced she'll be writ

★★★★! The Spiral Down (stand-alone, book 2). Mid-air collision of super-star singer & the straight pilot he wants to seduce!

“The high that came from being with a straight man, knowing he was going against his own genetic coding just for one night with me, made every minute of the pain worth it.”

Books in The Fall Up series should be read in order:
Book 1: The Fall Up
Book 2: The Spiral down

When I heard that Aly Martinez was writing a book about my favorite character in The Fall Up, Henry Alexander, I was ecstatic! I love all the things that Aly writes, and I couldn’t wait to read her first MM book. She did an amazing job with this story. It was the perfect combination of humor, heat, and heart.
The one thing I really wanted could never be bought. I wasn’t even sure it could be earned. It was something so rare that I feared it didn’t actually exist. Love. Unconditional

Okay, I am just SO in the minuscule minority here that I don't even know what to say.

Except that it must simply be me.


Seriously, I don't even have anything snarky or BAD to say about this book.


I know, right?

Imagine how I feel.

But I can't say anything bad...because there is nothing bad to say.

I LOVE Aly Martinez and her writing here was flawless as always.

Her characters were quirky and funny, her pop culture hilarity was on point as usual, the story line was great...this had all of the ingredi

Fans of the previous book of this series knew that Henry Alexander’s story would be something special and I guess the question for those seasoned mm readers was could Aly Martinez pull a mm read off? I’m not an expert but since I love this author and Henry there was no way I wasn’t going to give his story a try. For me, she completely pulled off a solid mm love story with snarky and steamy sex scenes all of which left a big smile on this reader’s face.

Henry only chases after straight men because he wants to feel special. He sets his eyes on Evan, who he thinks is straight, and pursues him relentlessly.

Evan hates labels. Having been burnt before, he resists Henry's charms for as long as he's able.

I've been eagerly waiting for this one and it definitely didn't disappoint.I haven't read the first book.I did consider it but M/F is not my thing these days.The characters from book one are,however,very well presented here and fit into the story perfectly.
I believe this is the first M/M book by this Author and as a lover of this Genre I think she's done an excellent job.The characters,sexual tension and story are very well done.

Henry is hugely successful singer.He's openly Gay but is n

Well look at that, Aly knows how to write good M/M. For real, how much I adored this book... le sigh...

I fell hard for Henry while reading The Fall Up (which is still one of my favourites), and was super excited to read his book. I'm happy to say it didn't disappoint.

Henry is a hilarious person, I had moments when I burst out laughing all the time. But somewhere behind that funny side of him, there is a vulnerable man hiding. And Evan was exactly the person to bring it out of

"I was so high on this man I wasn’t sure I’d ever come back down."

Okay Aly Martinez fans... I get it now. I totally get it. After reading two books by this author which really weren't to my reading tastes, I decided to take another chance on this one, because well... MM romance is my weakness. I eat it up! And this book was so worth the risk!!

This is the story of pop star Henry and young pilot Evan. Henry is an openly gay superstar and has a type: straight men. Evan is a pilot goin

“I was so high on this man I wasn’t sure I’d ever come back down.”

The Spiral Down was everything I had hoped it would be and more. After having read a few books by this author I can safely say Aly Martinez is a favourite. But this book? Knocked it out of the park. Just perfect.

If you follow my reviews you might have noticed me being quite fond of MM reads over the last few months. It’s really a new obsession and when I saw that we would get Henry’s book I was over the moon.

“I fucking hated labels. Always had.
But maybe that was because no one had ever given me the right one.
At least, not until that moment.
Gay. Straight. Bi. None of them fit me the way mine did rolling off Henry's tongue.
Suddenly, it was the only label I'd ever wanted.”
“I'd like to meet the pilot before we take off. Get his credentials and all. Maybe he's willing to take a bribe."
"A bribe? Henry, if the plane crashes, he's going to be dead too. I'm pretty sure survival is more than enough incentive for him."
"Maybe, but what if he has a massive gambling debt and needs the life insurance money to take care of his twelve children and handicapped wife?”
