Amazon US:

Amazon UK:






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 epic conclusion to Aly Martinez’s Retrieval Duet and you must have read Retrieval prior to picking up this book. The author does an outstanding job of intertwining two couple’s journey into one amazing emotional story. I can honestly say that this duet was very unique in that aspect of following two couples. Transfer is an action packed, suspenseful, emotional conclusion to a captivating story that was very quick to read and hard to put down.

This spectacular sequel starts off right where Retrieval left us with. It has more action and angst than the first book as well as it ties up all the loose ends and questions that you might have had. Whereas Retrieval was mostly Roman and Elisabeth’s story, this one follows Heath and Clare on their journey to love and being free from Walt once and for all. I absolutely loved Heath! If you thought Roman was an alpha, you’ll be surprised to find out that Heath just might have him beat. I loved how he was with Clare and Tessa. He was loving and gentle and protective and just a perfect addition to that duo.

This book was a definite page turner and one that was hard to put down. This book was balanced with both heart pounding suspenseful moments, emotional scenes that will have you teary eyed and then there were some sassy humor and witty scenes. There is not one thing that I had a problem with in this book, except for maybe when Clare keeps calling big alpha male Heath ‘honey’. That didn’t seem to fit in with them but it didn’t detract from the story much. Roman, Elisabeth, Heath, Clare, and even Tessa really bring this emotional suspenseful story to life and it is almost like you are living it right there with them. It is very hard not to fall in love with these characters and get invested in their stories and root for them all to get their happy ending. Aly Martinez will keep you on the edge of your seat through every page you read all the way to the very last word. I highly recommend the Retrieval Duet and it just might be one of my favorite reads of 2016.
