One story. Two couples.
I fell in love with a man who didn’t exist.
What started out as romance ended in hell.
His words turned to razor blades.
His kisses converted to fists.
His embrace became my cage.
His body transformed into a weapon, stealing parts of me until ultimately….
I hated him.
My sole job in life became to protect our daughter.
I wasn’t sure I’d ever escape the prison he’d skillfully crafted from my fears.
Until the day our savior arrived.
This is the story of how I escaped the man who thought he owned me.
The transfer of my life and my family.
4.5 of 5 Stars
Transfer is the continuation of Elisabeth/Roman’s/Luke/Heath/Claire’s story. Confused yet?
Book one, Retrieval, was Elisabeth and Roman’s story. It was about their love and struggle with infertility, as well as the loss of their child which ultimately led to the demise of their marriage. Alrighty, now you are caught. In book 1, we also met Claire and learned of her struggles with her husband. Ugh! I hated her story. However, it was so well written. Book 2 follows both couples, but mainly focuses on Claire’s story. The story dives into the past and we get to explore how she came to be in the position she is in with the horrific struggles within her marriage, her blossoming relationship, her fierceness determination to keep her daughter safe.
It’s hard to review this one and not give too much away. So, let me just say it was nerve wracking and healing. It was passionate and painful. The story flows fluidly between both couples and from each POV. Aly Martinez outdid herself in writing the complexities of the story, while maintaining the integrity of each character. The story really definitely keeps you at the edge of your seat!!
Yet again, Aly Martinez does not disappoint! She is quickly becoming one of those actors I MUST read, because she has such an interesting and different way to tell a story, that as of yet, I have NOT been disappointed.
Would I recommend this book to a friend? Yes. Can it be read as a standalone. No. The story would not make sense without the background from book 1. Both books are sweet love stories that keep you now the edge of your seat, which I found to be completely refreshing.
RETRIEVAL is available and brings readers the first part of this emotional second chance romance.
