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.
I’m blown away by this duet, blown away. Both books are absolutely in my top books of 2016. If you read my review of Retrieval, you know I devoured it. Well, it wasn’t any different with Transfer. Not only was I desperate to get my hands on it, once I got it, everything around me stopped and I just read and read. That’s how awesome this was.
Now, this review must be spoiler free for various reasons. One, I don’t want to spoil a single thing from Retrieval. Two, it’s so much better if you go in blind. And three, the author nicely asked arc holders if we could refrain from revealing major plot lines, especially the name of the hero, so I will totally respect this.
So, there isn’t much to say. The story picks up right after Retrieval ends. While the couple of book one, Elizabeth and Roman are very much present in the story, the focus of the story shifts a little to Clare and her hero. And trust me, he is a hero in every sense of the word. Clare is strong, remarkable and amazing. And her man, trust me, he is as swoony as Roman.
“Ask me,” I ordered, giving his hair a sharp tug. “What do you need, Clare?” he mumbled against my chest. I smiled victoriously. “You.” His eyes lifted, an inferno brewing within as he finally gave me the only permission I would ever need. “Then take it.”
But if you’re missing Roman’s alpha awesomeness, do not worry, he has some awesome scenes here too:
“You hate red sauce, and just last night you made me lasagna. We both make compromises. That is not a bad thing. I can pick off olives and almonds and choke down salmon once in a while because I know you’d do the same for me. Now, chill out, eat the damn Raisinettes, and then give your man a dark movie theater hand-job.”
The story interconnects both couples in a perfect way, and leaves no loose ties, which I love. It has the same amount of love, suspense and hotness as Retrieval, so I loved every second of it. I’m so amazed at how clever these books were written and how well all flows together, especially the multiple POVs. The ending is everything I wanted, and the epilogue is simply perfection. So, this duet is a must read, please pick it up. I absolutely recommend.
“There was no combination of letters in all of the world’s vast languages to properly convey how I felt about her. But, as I rested her shoulders against the cool sheet rock and moved my mouth to her neck, I gave her all I had. “I love you, too.”
