***Review - Fallen Down Under by S.M. Phillips - Down Under #2 - 4 Stars***


Fallen Down Under by S.M. Phillips
Down Under #2

4 Cant Wait For Book 3 Stars

"Fuck." I slam my fist into the desk before me and feel nothing but rage. I need to go after her. I need to explain. "But isn't this what you wanted?" The voice inside my head whispers. "Isn't this a nice easy way out?"

Everything Max has done has always been at a cost to others around him. He wasn't about to make that mistake again. No longer will his selfish ways punish those close to him. Sometimes it's better to have had and lost than to never have had at all.

Finally after what felt like forever, Jess was getting a glimpse of control over her life again and allowed her defences to come crashing down, only to have what it guarded to be crushed once again. Now, on the other side of the world away from her friends, she doesn't know what to do.

Should she stay or should she go?

Is it too late or have they both fallen too far into something that is completely out of their depths?

My Review

Fallen down under is book #2 in the Down Under series. I loved book one Escape Down Under here's a link to my review. I was lucky enough to be given an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review so here goes.....

Mac, max, Max where has all that alpha gone????

Book one in this series is all raw passion and desire but this book is emotional and tactical.

I still adore Max but he does loose a few man points for just being a bit of a pussy!!!

Jess is snarky and bitchy and I kind of love her in this book. Her and Max definitely share a connection but I was pleased to see her holding her own and making him work hard at making up with her!!!

I'm so glad we get to see some Jen and George in this book they are the comic relief and they really made me chuckle!!!

Stella, Stella, Stella karma's a bitch baby I can't wait till you get yours!!!!

I have to say I missed the smoking hot sex in this book, don't get me wrong there were some sex scenes but nowhere near enough and I just didn't get as hot and bothered as I did with book one.

This book feels like your typical second book in a trilogy does. The first book lays the intros and intense sexy groundwork. The second book then builds the story and tension which Fallen Down Under does brilliantly but for me it just wasn't as wow in your face as book one was.

That being said I still devoured it in one sitting, if my hubby would have been daft enough to suggest I put it down he would have got a serious mouthful lol!!!

This book was a fab reminder of why I love Max Wilder and a tasty little morsel that will keep me desperately needing to know what happens next.

Roll on book #3 but Fallen Down Under gets 4 stars from me
