Henry Alexander’s story in The Spiral Down by Aly Martinez is NOW LIVE!
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.
(This is a m/m romance and can be read as a standalone)
I imagine when an author makes the decision to write something out of their comfort zone, that anxiety can very well settle in. Bringing about nerves you haven’t felt with other books and battling possible insecurities that you thought you had dealt with already – the concern and fear is prominent. So, when Aly Martinez decides to embark on her first M/M romance novel, I anticipate that she becomes reacquainted with those feelings I previously mentioned. Well, Aly. I’m here to tell you, you have absolutely NOTHING to worry about. Blessed with the perfect marriage of heat, passion, chemistry and angst, heartache and redemption, The Spiral Down is a whirlwind journey. Filled with soul searching and soul healing, through Henry and Evan, Aly Martinez shares an unforgettable love story.
Some readers may remember Henry Alexander from Aly’s previous book The Fall Up. A famous singer, readers were introduced and fell in love with Levee’s vivacious best friend. Given his own book, we are quick to realize that with Henry Alexander, nothing is as it seems. Plagued by insecurities, doubts, fears and uncertainties, we witness a heartbreaking road to happiness. Using his fame and fortune to get what he wants, a coincidental meeting with the gorgeous Evan Roth becomes the beginning of a journey neither of them will ever forget.
As their relationship unfolds, secrets are revealed. And for every secret exposed, comes another secret guarded. Insisting on downplaying their feelings for one another, a web of confusion, accusations and misunderstandings threaten to destroy their happy ever after. Stripping back layer after layer, Aly Martinez gives readers characters that are raw, deep and authentic. Highlighting both their strengths and their flaws, Martinez showcases the differences and the difficulty in finding love and keeping love.
The Spiral Down may be Aly Martinez’s debut M/M romance novel, but the reality is, it proves that Love is Love. From heartache to happiness and everything in between, The Spiral Down is a reminder that our needs and wants are all the same, our desire to love and be loved is universal and above all, no matter what, we all deserve our happily ever after.
