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.
Aly Martinez writes a variety of genre but I believe this is her fist m/m book. She always brings a well thought out story line to her books and this one was much the same.
Henry is the very gay friend and fellow musician of Levee from THE FALL UP. He is absolutely adorable in his own book. A bit neurotic and a whole lot broken but totally sweet with a good heart. He meets his match with Evan, his substitute pilot and a very bi-s3xual man trying not to be attracted to the hot hyperventilating musician on his plane. He has sworn off men since getting his heart broken.
Henry also notices Evan and sets out on a mission to bed the man he assumes is straight. In his mixed up head, Henry guards his heart and plans for the spiral down. The let down of the high after having earth shattering moments with guys who aren't interested in anything more than that one moment. Evan doesn't react that way and Henry isn't quite sure what to do with himself.
The story is humorous, poignant and very steamy! The two leads end up being perfect compliments to each other. Each strong in their own way. Well written romance!
