Retrieval Duet series by Aly Martinez 



WOW, just wow. This book was beyond what I thought it was going to be. The love that Roman and ElisaBeth have is a test of time, but sometimes time can be the issue. They experience so much loss and emotions that they end up apart and yet still loving each other. Now years past something changes them and gives them something they were not anticipating.
The emotions for any couple that have experienced miscarriages, IVF and then the loss, can really test ones stability and love. This book is beautiful and the story kept me on my toes right up to the last sentence. Can’t wait for Transfer.

What a conclusion to the Retrieval Duet series. Where do I begin to tell you how much I loved this book? Ok I will start with Clare; she is strong, courageous, loving, compassionate and fierce. She would do anything and everything to save her daughter from evil and she did. But she didn’t do this alone; she had someone strong and supportive throughout it all, Heath “Luke”. Heath was more than an alpha DEA agent, he is heroic. He will stop at nothing to help get Clare and Tessa safe from Walter Noir. But through all this there is another couple will do anything for Clara and Tess, the LeBlanc’s. ElisaBeth and Roman story didn’t end in Retrieval, it was just the beginning.
Throughout this whole book I was at the edge of my seat waiting to see how it was going to end. The love that all these couples gained and gave left my heart completely full.

Book 1: 

One story. Two couples. 

I proposed on our first date. 

She laughed and told me I was insane. Less than a day later, she said yes. 

It was a whirlwind, but we were happy… 

Until we got greedy and wanted a family. 

It was a life I couldn’t give her, not for lack of trying. Fertility just wasn’t on our side. We sought out doctors and treatments. Spent money we didn’t have. Lied to our families. Smiled for our friends. Put on a brave face for a world that didn’t understand. 

Finally, we were successful… 

Until we were forced to bury our son. 

We were left broken, battered, and destroyed. 

They say love is in the details, but it was the details that ruined us. 

This is the story of how I took back what had always been mine. 

The retrieval of my wife and our family. 

Book 2: 

Transfer is book two in the USA TODAY bestselling Retrieval Duet. 

It is not to be read as a standalone.

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.
