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.

5.0 "11:11" STARS!!!

Transfer is one of those books I was aching and have been looking forward to read. When I finished Retrieval, I have conflicted emotions. The roller coaster ride was just too much but I can't help myself for getting my hands on the next book to finally know what's gonna happen next. And then it hit my kindle, And oh boy I was soooo consumed with it and all I can say is...

Wow!!! What a beautiful conclusion to a beautiful and emotional story of two couples!

I admit even how giddy I am to read it, I am scared of what I am bound to experience. My God, this book is just too much. Throw in everything you can think of and it wil still pale in comparison. It was written well that every lines showcased a depth of emotion. The story telling is excellent as if you were watching a movie. Every scenes is detailed vividly and I appreciate it very much because it added a substance for a better reading. The characters despite complex nature is easy to love.

As much as I say this is Clare and Heath's story this is also Elisabeth and Roman's. Man, I am captivated with each of these couples' story. Their journey, on how and why they met. The love and loss. The hatred. The anger. The fear. But above all the love and selflessness of a man just to protect his family. And a mother's love for her daughter and the extent of what she could and woould to protect her and fight for her. They may have been to a lot of difficult situations, situations out of greed and evil but it was clear enough what love can do to you. And I appreciate how it is depicted in this story. I love how it was stressed out and I tell you I am in awe. I might have felt pain but reading this book made my heart combust to an utter emotion I cannot explain. 

I can go on and on but I have to stop it here so as not to spoil you. Read Transfer but first, read Retrieval. I highly recommend this duet. It was more than emotional, heart gripping, suspenseful because it's so much more. 

I love it to pieces and I tell you it's undeniably one of the best tbooks I have ever read.

★★★★4 "What do you need Stars★★★★

After that ending in "Retrieval" I NEEDED to read "Transfer" ASAP. The secrets and drama damn near drove me mad and I was itching to find out what was going to happen between Heath and Clare. Well I found out and you know what the best part was? We also got to see Roman and Elisabeth again. How did everyone's story end? 

Finding out who Luke really was, to say that Clare was shock is an inderstatememt. How can this be the same person that she's spent months with and sharing little pieces of herself. But that shock will have to go on the back burner because her and her daughter's life are in more danger than ever before. 

Trusting someone has always been a difficult thing for her to do, but when your life is on the line and the one man who's been protecting you behind closed doors tells you have no choice, you listen.

Heath has been in a reallly difficult position for the last few months. With trying to do his job as an undercover Agent and slowly falling the woman that's the star of his investigation, he's been at war with himself mentally and physically. 

Running on his last resort to try and keep her safe, they both decide that they should stick together. With their plans set in motion, Heath and Clare embark on their journey to survival and finding something that they never knew wanted.

"I wasn't quitting on Clare Noir no matter how things ended. And, whether it was legal or not, I was going to find a way to keep her safe". 
I loved the fact that Roman and Elisabeth's story was just as important as Clare and Heath's journey. Everyone really fought for each other and you felt their love for one another all around. It messy at times but they manged to make it work and I admired that about them. 

My only issue was that I wished we got more action in this story. It felt like it was dragging in the first half and I became a bit bored with everything but it did pick up in the second half so I grateful for that. If you want to know how everyone got their own happily ever after, then pick this one up!
