I went into this book not really sure what to expect. I mean I love Aly Martinez’s writing and I fell in serious love with The Fall Up. I had a massive crush on Henry even though I knew my vagina ruled me out of it ever being reciprocated (well that and the fact he is fictitious).

I don’t have an issue with the MM genre and even enjoy it from time to time but I sometimes find it hard to get lost in them due to my lack of penis, but from the very start I was gone. And a serious upside was getting to spend hours (ok so maybe I got a little side tracked) looking through MM images for this review ;)


Henry was so easy to love and I went into this book already thinking I knew who he was and how his story started but I got so much more than I bargained for. Knowing to expect a fair bit of angst from Aly’s stories I was so scared of how it was going to play out. I didn’t want the sweet and loving Henry to be on the receiving end of anything but rainbows and sunshine.


Evan was so fucking awesome, even with his issues he was perfect. And once he opened himself up and went all out to break through all the walls Henry had built he just got even better.

Catching up with Levee and Sam was the absolute icing on the cake. I seriously could read all day, the interplay between Sam and Henry, it was hilarious and sweet and just bumped Sam even higher up the book boyfriend list.


The sex scenes were hot and the tension leading up to them kept me squirming in my seat even with my lack of penis. I loved everything about this book and the epilogue finished it to perfection.  I honestly can’t find a single thing I didn’t love about this book and I seriously suggest you drop everything and grab it now. This can absolutely be read as a stand-alone or out of order but you would be doing yourself an injustice if you missed out on The Fall Up so be sure to grab that while you’re one clicking this one.
