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.

— Excerpt —


“How about you and one of your girls come out to my show in L.A. next week? My treat. Dinner, drinks, the whole deal. Evan and I would love to take you two beautiful ladies out for an evening.”

“Excuse me?” he exclaimed, cocking his head to catch my gaze.

I leaned back into my seat and lifted a hand to massage his shoulder. I was barely able to suppress a moan when the angle of his firm trap muscle met my palm.

Fuck, this guy was built like a brick wall. And I was going to love every second of watching him crumble for me.

“Oh, come on, Evan. It’s the least we can do. Double date.” I winked at Jessica. “You can fly them out! My plane should be ready by then.”

Jessica’s eyes jumped to Evan’s. “You’re a pilot?” Her smile spread irritatingly wide.

Back off, Ginger Spice.

Snapping my fingers in her direction, I corrected, “He’s my pilot.”

Subtlety was not a virtue I possessed. Was subtlety a virtue at all?

“Your temporary pilot,” he amended before shaking his head and then tipping his beer to his lips for a long pull.

“Anyway. Do we have a date?” And, by date, I meant feeding her dinner while I attempted to work my way into Evan’s pants.

She pressed one finger to her lips and then nervously flashed her eyes around the cabin.

“Oops. Sorry.” I shrugged sheepishly. Lifting my drink to my mouth, I discreetly passed her my cocktail napkin and then not-so-discreetly brushed my forearm against Evan’s chest as I pulled away.

He offered her a tight smile just before she disappeared.

I grinned proudly.

“What the fucking hell was that?” he whisper-yelled at me.

“That was me getting a woman’s number.”

He arched an eyebrow. “A woman. Really?”

“What? Is that not allowed?” I feigned innocence.

He clenched his fist in his lap, and it made me suddenly aware that my own hands had stopped trembling—and in record time, I should note. Evan seemed to be quite useful in the art of distraction.

He leaned closer. “Don’t bullshit me. I looked you up. You’re…” He stopped, unwilling to say the big, bad “G” word.

“I’m what?” I taunted.

He rolled his eyes and chugged the rest of his beer.

We went back to silence until Jessica came back by with another drink, complete with her phone number written on the napkin.

“I’m not going on a double date,” Evan said as I tucked the napkin into my pocket. “You want me to fly them out? Not a problem. Schedule it with Jackson. But that’s the extent of my professional responsibilities. And, since I’m off the clock right now, I’d also like to mention that I think whatever play you’re planning to run on that woman is fucked up.”

My head snapped to his. “I’m sorry. Play?” I asked with more attitude than I had originally planned.

“Yes. Play,” he sneered.

I stirred my drink. “Let me get this straight. I’m offering to fly her out in a private jet, feed her dinner at one of the best restaurants in the city, and put her front row at a concert that has been sold out for over a year. That doesn’t seem like a play to me. It sounds like I’m trying to do something nice for a woman I was rude to earlier.” I casually leaned back in my seat. “My conscience doesn’t ‘play’ when it comes to apologies.”

“Right. Well, maybe you should have a chat with your conscience, because she looks like she just won the date of a lifetime. Meanwhile, you don’t even like women.” He stalled, no doubt looking for just the right word to express his disgust without sounding like a bigot. Judging by his gentleness when we’d taken off, he wasn’t the type of guy to go for the fag bomb.

I watched him intently, excited to see how he was going to handle this.

“You’re gay.”

I frowned at his lack of creativity. “Not that it’s any of your damn business. But I’ll have you know I love women.”

It wasn’t a lie. I adored women. Especially Levee and Robin.

I just didn’t like pussy. Meh. Semantics.

He gaped. “You’re bi?”

“And I’ll repeat: None of your damn business. But yeah. Do you have a problem with that?”

Again, it wasn’t necessarily a lie.

Was I bisexual? Fuck no. My cock was in no way an equal opportunity employer.

I was somewhat bilingual though. I knew how to ask for a blow job in English and Spanish. I pretended that was what he meant.

Chupame la verga.

— My Review —


Henry Alexander is living life to the fullest. Watching from a distance you would assume he had everything he could want. Very few have ever gotten close enough to know the real Henry and know that the only thing he wants and craves is unconditional love. Henry has some unhealthy ways in how he searches for *the one* but unfortunately he's never found what he's longing for.

Aly Martinez is a new author to me, but boy oh boy did she sweep me off my feet with Henry and Evan's story in, The Spiral Down. I cannot recommend enough how amazing it is. The Spiral Down is one of those rare finds that stick with you for days after. One of those, as soon as you finish you want to start back at page one, because you know it will be even better the second time around.

Evan Roth's luck is not much better than Henry's in the love department. For the last ten years he's mainly dated women after being left heartbroken from the one man he thought he loved. He loves the companionship with women but that "It factor" always seems to be missing. Evan is a pilot and flying is the rush he craves, the passion he desires, and nothing or no one could takes its place. Or, so he thought. 

When Henry and Evan come face to face, it's the start of something neither one are prepared for. Henry is a diva, at times, a rich diva, and Evan is looking for a job that is permanent. Sometimes they are like oil and water, and other times they are peas and carrots.

As they start trying to figure out exactly what they do have together you will be consumed with so many feels. You will laugh out loud at their antics until your jaws hurt and you will shed tears for the pain they have endured. Their journey is not easy but I guarantee it's worth it. Henry is hysterical and I was still laughing days later as I remembered things he said. 

The author's creativity, the humor, and the descriptive narrative were all things that pulled me into the story from the first page and kept me engrossed till the end. Henry and Evan, along with the amazing secondary characters became real people and ones that I would love to have for friends.  

Henry's best friend, Levee, and Evan's best friend, Scott, along with Carter are just a few that helped to make this book shine. I would love to see more stories with Evan and Henry and I'm definitely interested in reading more from this author. I hope she has plans for more M/M books in the future. 5 Stars from me.
