    Full of Emotions

    My heart broke for Elisabeth and Roman at parts, and I luxuriated inside their love with them during other scenes. For them life instantly fell into place as soon as they met. After terrible rounds of miscarriages, infertility, IVF and the death of a child, their systems were just unable to reboot back to that happiness. Retrieval is the story of Elisabeth and Roman past and present. This series contains two couples whose relationships couldn’t possibly be more different. It isn’t a super lengthy book, but a whole lot is packed inside: parental love, romantic love, hate, romantic wooing, heartbreak, fear, desire, selfishness, sacrifice, abuse, adoration, suspense, action and more. Clare actually wrecked me the most. I can’t wait to start the continuation of this duet. I’m completely invested.

    Incredible Book 1 to this duet!

    Retrieval is the outstanding start to a duet that I couldn't put down! With this latest work, Aly Martinez's writing proves to be truly masterful. She takes the reader on a journey that is as mysterious as it is touching. I couldn't help but be drawn in by every single character and their part in this captivating read. The heart-wrenching second chance love story that is Roman and Elisabeth is one that is much more than expected. What starts as a chance to reconcile with his ex-wife becomes very complicated. With the utmost of skill, the author beautifully blends two story-lines in one and you're quickly engaged in both. Told in multiple POV's, I couldn't wait to find out what might happen with each turn of the page and at the same time, was very hesitant to find out what might happen with each turn of the page! It's intriguing. It's tender. It's sexy. It's painful. And yet it's glorious just the same. I don't want to give anything away, which is why I'm being so vague. But I will share that Roman is one of THE most wonderful men I've ever read about. His desire to make things right with his Lis blew me away. I love his bossy and overbearing ways. They are countered perfectly with his remorse, sincere devotion and tenderness for the love of his life. And their passionate trysts were so damned erotic I had to fan myself on more than one occasion. In addition, the other players in this complicated tale are just as impassioned in their quest to find out deeply held secrets and make them finally come to light. It's a book that you won't want to end and might very well curse the author when you realize the last few lines are near. Thank goodness, the second book and conclusion won't be far behind. I may say this more often than I think when it comes to Aly Martinez but I'm going to say it anyway: this very well could be her best yet. Her writing continues to go up to a new level each and every time. She's not afraid to step out of her box and give us something fresh. And for that I am sincerely grateful. 5 HUGE STARS!!

    Amazing

    OMG! What an amazing story. Right from the start I was sucked into this heart wrenching story. Two years ago Lis and Roman lost their son and shortly after their marriage collapsed. One day they were both summoned to the police station for questioning. They found out that there was a possibility that the embryos used to get pregnant might have been switched and that their child might be alive. Turns out that their possible child was living with a cruel Mob boss who beat his wife all the time. Clare couldn't get away from her abusive husband but she always protected her daughter Tessa. Aly did an amazing job intertwining their stories and I can't wait to read the next story.

    4.5 stars-Retrieval by Aly Martinez

    : 4.5 stars---RETRIEVAL is the first installment in Aly Martinez’s contemporary, adult THE RETRIEVAL DUET romantic, suspense duology focusing on two couples connected through deceit and betrayal. Told from four first person points of view (Roman and Elisabeth Leblanc, Walt and Clare Noir) using present day timeline and flashbacks RETRIEVAL looks at infertility, loss, betrayal and heartbreak. Two years earlier Roman and Elisabeth’s life fell apart following years of infertility and the loss of their unborn son. Fast forward to present day wherein our now divorced couple will come face to face with their worst nightmare and the possibility that life as they know it is about to spiral out of control-once again. We are introduced to Clare Noir, an abused and battered woman whose own life is a living h*ll thanks to a husband with issues of power and control- Clare will eventually cross paths with Roman and Elisabeth LeBlanc pulling our couple into a dark and dangerous path. What ensues are Roman’s attempts to get back the woman he loves, and put together the family that no longer exists- a second chance at love for two people lost to the memories of the past. RETRIEVAL is a heartbreaking, intense and emotional story line involving two couples connected by deceit, betrayal and infertility. Aly Martinez pulls the reader into a story of suspense, mystery, loss and deception. The premise is passionate, controversial and intoxicating. The characters are tragic and broken as their struggle with what was and what may never be. The story line ends on a cliff hanger-you have been warned. I like the author’s use of LeBlanc and Noir….White and Black….good vs evil- a definitive line has been drawn between the characters and not just via the story line premise.
