The Complete Retrieval Duet (The Retrieval Duet) by Aly Martinez

The Complete Retrieval Duet

By Aly Martinez

After a mix-up at the fertility clinic, two couples are forever changed when their lives suddenly collide.

“The Retrieval Duet is an emotionally-gripping, twisty ride punctuated by intense chemistry and the hottest alpha male I’ve read in ages!” -New York Times Bestselling Author Meghan March 


One date.
That was all it took for me to know Elisabeth was my soul mate.
Five years, countless infertility treatments, and the loss of our only son.
That was what it took for me to lose her.
One phone call, a mix-up at the lab, and a little girl neither of us knew existed.
That was the hell it took to bring her back to me.
And this time, I wasn’t letting go.
This is the story of how I took back what had always been mine.
The retrieval of my wife and my family.

I married a monster.
What started out as romance ended in hell.
My sole job in life was to protect our daughter.
Until a police officer informed me of a mix-up at the lab.
My little girl was the only thing keeping me alive.
And I didn’t even know if she was mine.
This is the story of how I escaped the man who thought he owned me.
The transfer of my life and my family.

Retrieval by Aly Martinez
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I got an email approximately 6 hours ago that this book had been sent to my kindle. I promptly left work and here I am ….. OMG THIS WAS AMAZING!!

As you know, this is part one of a duet. However, the word duet means something complete different than what it normally does. You see normally, this would mean the story that began in book one would continue to book two for a happy ending. Well, surprise LOL because what duet REALLY means is we have two separate stories connected by a very small degrees. But those degrees are EVERYTHING!

Retrieval is very much the story of Roman and Elisabeth getting their life back, but it is also the beginning of Clare’s story, intertwined and laced with their journey, which will continue in Transfer .. #phenomenal This world with these characters I just read is ALL THE THINGS!!

This book is ridiculously captivating. It warmed my heart as much as it broke my heart. It’s amazingly suspenseful but yet not mysterious. The Aly Martinez touch with characterization and voice sings true with every word. And the ending, or as some would say cliffhanger … WELL FUCKING PLAYED!! You got me! I will be holding my breath until I can get my hands on part two! #TRUST

Transfer by Aly Martinez
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

*CRIES* …. no more words ( I really did cry when I finished lol)

When I got the email that Transfer had finally been sent to my kindle, I once again dropped everything I was doing and began to read…I don’t know any other words to use but BLOWN AWAY when it comes to this duet series. I have no doubt in my mind that everyone will LOVE Roman & Elisabeth to the point of distraction, but you guuuuuuuys….Heath is just ALL THE THINGS <3 and Clare and little Tessa will absolutely steal your heart forever. The strength these characters all have and their determination is unparalleled. Aly Martinez wrote some pretty outstanding people here. And she wrote them with purpose and meaning. Every action had an endgame and every reaction had a consequence. The story was incredibly relatable and real and vivid. I felt like I was there. My heart was jack-hammering thru every suspenseful intense moment of Clare and Tessa’s survival.

I want to take a few minutes and talk about the style of this story. Or should I say stories. Because there are two distinct stories here yet one cannot be told without the other. I am still blown away at the unfolding of the story. The thread of connection between Heath and Clare and Roman and Tessa was SO well thought out and SO well unfolded that it puts this book in one of my top reads for 2016. I said in my cryptic review (because I didn’t want to give anything away) of Retrieval that I was captivated from page one and it still held true thru every page of Transfer. I cannot stress enough what an incredible piece of literary fiction this duet is. It should be experienced by everyone. #TRUST

Originally from Savannah, Georgia, USA Today bestselling author Aly Martinez now lives in South Carolina with her husband and four young children.

Never one to take herself too seriously, she enjoys cheap wine, mystery leggings, and baked feta. It should be known, however, that she hates pizza and ice cream, almost as much as writing her bio in the third person.

She passes what little free time she has reading anything and everything she can get her hands on, preferably with a super-sized tumbler of wine by her side.
