Publisher's Summary

Standalone M/M romance novel.

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.

My Godzilla

Henry is the mega star friend of Levee, from book 1. Lonely and self isolated, Henry very rarely faces his fear of flying after a very scary close call however sometimes it’s unavoidable. This is how he meets pilot, Evan Roth. Evan has his own host of issues that equate to them being lost to each other.

The two of them are what happen when a plane implodes and starts the spiral down. However they are their own act of God and manage to save each other before a crash landing. The level of sweet and savory that you get from this story makes for the most well balanced book I could hope for. Though Evan and Henry had issues, they didn’t have miscommunication as what is found in so many books right now, there is just heart ache from an inability to come together. It makes this HEA so completely rewarding.

All Martinez balanced this series so much differently than other books. Usually it’s 20% intro 60% conflict and 20% resolution. Aly is more 40% intro and 40% conflict and 20% resolution and it makes you adore her characters so much more. You just latch on and you know them so much more as well. I really appreciated that about this book and The Fall Up. It was so refreshing.

Aiden Snow and Teddy Hamilton are nothing short of amazing. They bring to life characters that needed individuality. Just because they are 2 male characters doesn’t mean you can use one male narrator and I’m glad Aly got that. It was awesome narration and an awesome book.

Excellent listen with great narration

I've been listening to MM reads a lot more lately. Been seeing this book circulating for a while and decide to give it a listen. I loved it. Henry is quirky and loveable with a fear of flying and being loved. Evan has his own set of issues. Despite the real life struggles, their chemistry is off the charts real. Aiden Snow and Teddy Hamilton😍😍😍🔥🔥🔥 together is amazing. Aiden's growly voice was perfect for Evan and Teddy's swoon worthy voice was perfect for Henry. The emotions they put into this book, along with the inflections, simply perfection.

Great story

Henry is an openly gay rockstar who meets a pilot named Evan. Henry assumes that Evan is heterosexual and sets his sights on seducing him. After their first time together he realizes that Evan is bisexual and he immediately loses interest in him. Evan tries to explain himself in hopes that he and Henry can both come to terms with their pasts and move forward. This story was well written and narrated. Teddy Hamilton is one of my go to narrators and, as always, nails his performance. Aiden Snow is new to me but did an amazing job. He will be added to my list of favorite narrators.

Fantastic!

I wasn't sure I would like this, to be honest. I listened to it because of Aiden Snow. No other reason. At first, Teddy Hamilton got on my nerves. That's how good he is as Henry - he's supposed to be irritating. Keep listening - he will grow on you. I love Carter. He made me laugh. Plan to fall in love, get angry, be heartbroken, fall back in love, rinse, repeat. It is a rollercoaster, but as with most rollercoasters, it's totally worth it after all is said and done. I still love Aiden Snow,

Fantastic Page-turner

The Spiral Down was an emotional angsty masterpiece from Aly Martinez that had me hooked from beginning to end. This M/M story was given to us in dual POV and we are able to get a look into the minds of both characters and experience the emotions they are both feeling. Both characters were complex with their own issues however together they were absolutely perfect. Their steamy scenes were hott without detracting from the story and the banter between them had me amused. I absolutely loved this page-turner and would highly recommend it to all lovers of MM romance.
The audiobook was narrated by Aiden Snow and Teddy Hamilton. Together these two were fabulous. They brought out the personalities of the characters and placed the right emotions in the story. It was a pleasure listening to them narrate this novel.

I'll Be The Best Godzilla You'll Ever Have

What a beautiful story! This is my first Aly Martinez book and I thoroughly enjoy it!

This is a story about a rockstar, Henry and a pilot, Evan. It's about how the two slowly begin a relationship, at first professionally, and later on, romantically. They both have issues to overcome. Both stemming from fear and abandonment issues. There's also their chosen families, not just biological ones.

It is a sweet story, a few humorous scenes as well.

Also, what a great combo of narrators! Aiden Snow and Teddy Hamilton are perfect for this book! These two brought Henry and Evan to life with their excellent skills. Five stars for these two and five stars for Aly Martinez!!!

Amazing.

I absolutely loved this book. Henry and Evan are so good together ❤ I loved the honesty that they had even if some of it had to be drug out of them. The epilogue is so perfect. Teddy Hamilton and Aiden Snow are great together as the narrators.

Nice one!! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Two of my fav male narrators in a delightful story. I was looking for something different and pleasantly surprised. Aiden and Teddy owned this story and the narration and of course the author deserves credit for writing a good story. Great characters too!! Glad I found it in Audible Escape.
