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.
Transfer is the second book in the Retrieval Duet. I couldn’t wait to sink my teeth into this continuation, and hallelujah it’s a juicy one. The story picks up seconds after the plot-twisting, stomach churning cliffhanger at the end of Retrieval and continues to propel readers through an adrenaline rush of a plot.
This book adds Heath’s point of view, and it focuses heavily on his developing relationship with Clare and her adorable, resilient two year-old daughter, Tessa. Heath is a gentle giant of an alpha protector whom I adored from the beginning, and Clare continued to amaze me with her strength and courage. With the fear of Walt’s retaliation lurking, the anxiety level goes through the roof as the risk to all the characters’ lives increases.
I must say I missed the witty and electric interactions between Elisabeth and Roman. Their connection is as amazing as before, and their banter is still present—just to a much lesser degree. With so much emphasis on Clare’s well being, there are moments when Roman and Elizabeth almost seem to fade into the background. Aly Martinez provides plenty of drama and unexpected turns to keep the reader engaged, though, and once again I stayed up late devouring this story.
Transfer is every bit as suspenseful, engrossing, provocative, and heartfelt as Retrieval. I highly recommend this remarkable duet.
