Review of Retrieval by Aly Martinez

One story. Two couples. I proposed on our first date. She laughed and told me I was insane. Less than a day later, she said yes. It was a whirlwind, but we were happy… Until we got greedy and wanted a family. It was a life I couldn’t give her, not for lack of trying. Fertility just wasn’t on our side. We sought out doctors and treatments. Spent money we didn’t have. Lied to our families. Smiled for our friends. Put on a brave face for a world that didn’t understand. Finally, we were successful… Until we were forced to bury our son. We were left broken, battered, and destroyed. They say love is in the details, but it was the details that ruined us. This is the story of how I took back what had always been mine. The retrieval of my wife and our family.

Retrieval by Aly Martinez
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

One marriage made in heaven and one in hell, yet both end up intersecting in a shocking way. Retrieval is the first of a two part series and runs the gambit of all emotions.

Roman and Elisabeth Leblanc had a whirl wind marriage. Within hours of meeting each other Roman proposed. They had an immediate bond and deep love. But 5 years later they are divorced and wondering how it all went wrong.

Clair Noir’s life is a living nightmare married to a monster. All she cares about is protecting her young daughter. She knows that her husband will never let her leave alive.

Roman and Elisabeth story is the main in the Retrieval. We are taken on the journey with them from the beginning when it was all so perfect to when it fell apart and then through reuniting and working through what tore them apart.

Unknown to them they are connected to Clair and Walter Noir. We are shown the abuse Clair endures and wonder how she will ever be able to get save her daughter.

Lots of surprises through out and of course it ends on a doozy of a cliff hanger. The second part comes out soon where Clair’s story becomes the primary. Cant wait!!!
