Review - Transfer by Aly Martinez



The Retrieval Duet by Aly Martinez is a two part series.



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 broke.

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.

5 Star Review

From the moment I finished Retrieval I wanted this book and once I received it I dropped everything I was doing to start it. I then proceeded to read it in one sitting, falling even more in love with these characters. 

In Retrieval we learned about Roman and Elisabeth. We learned how they lost themselves in the struggle to start a family, but eventually found each other again through learning more about their fertility process. I loved Roman and Elisabeth, but for the most part their story is told in Retrieval and Transfer features a different couple. 

This story is actually told in four different points of views, which I loved! I felt like we really got the whole story and I loved seeing how these events shaped all the characters involved. This story is emotional and the issues the characters experience are unimaginable. Knowing how everyone is affected and how they cope made me really connect with everyone. 

Which leads me to our new couple. I loved our heroine. Some people may not see her strength at first, but after reading her story I can completely understand and relate. I could see how she did her best to survive and protect what was most important to her. Now onto our hero, I loved this guy. Absolutely loved him! I felt like he was the perfect hero, it was so easy to fall in love with a man who was willing to do anything for someone he loved. He was protective, compassionate and understanding. He was loving and always put her first. He was willing to lay down his life before he even fell in love, he is just that kind of guy. 

This duet is just more to me. It’s an emotional story that owned my heart from the very beginning. It was more than about fertility issues and included a ton of heart and even suspense. It had me completely hooked and unable to read fast enough to see what would happen next. 

This series is by far one of my favorites of the year. Aly Martinez always blows me away, every book of her’s I read I find myself saying it’s my new favorite. That is an amazing thing, but something Aly does so easily with each new release. I cannot recommend this series enough, trust me, read it!
