ONE STORY. TWO COUPLES.
The Retrieval Duet by Aly Martinez is a two part series releasing September 2016.
RETRIEVAL and TRANSFER are now LIVE and will bring readers this emotional second chance romance.
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.

With the way Retrieval the first part of this Duet ended, I was desperate to start Transfer the second part and to find out how this story concludes. And I have to say Aly didn’t disappoint. Yet again, I was completely absorbed in this one story about two couples and couldn’t put it down.
“Love wasn’t always hearts and flowers. It could be dark and dirty, defined by power and pain, and filled with anguish and agony.”
It’s hard to talk about book two, as I don’t want to spoil it for anyone who has read book one. So all I will say like the first part it was an emotional, touching, gripping, steamy and intense story about love, strength, heartache, hope, never giving up, and much more. There were plot twists that added a suspense and intrigue element to the story so it never felt predictable.
“Letting her go was no longer an option. But, after today, it was clear keeping her wasn’t going to be easy, either.”
My heart went out to Clair Noir no one should have to suffer and go through what she when through. I was glad found someone who wanted to make her safe and to help heal her broken pieces. Their connection was strong, and you could feel how drawn they were to each other.
“I’ve got you…….I swear on my life I’ve got you.”
Yet again Aly Martinez has delivered a story that readers like myself will love from start to finish. With her flawless and passionate writing, she drew me in with a great plot with believable, endearing characters. If you have read the first part of this duet, then part two is a must read. If you have yet to pick this one up, then go, and one clicks now as I guarantee you won’t be disappointed.
RETRIEVAL is available and brings readers the first part of this
emotional second chance romance.
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.
