“Lean on me, babe. You don’t have to brave right now.”
Transfer is an absolutely stunning conclusion to the Retrieval Duet. To enjoy this read, you must read the first book in the duo Retrieval. The rich writing and complex characters in this series enveloped me from the first word on the first page, and I simply could not get enough. This unforgettable duet is an absolute must read!

Additionally, with his job on the line, he must find a balance between keeping her safe and remaining professional.

“Did you just spend an hour getting permission to fuck me?”
“…guide me home Claire.”
Told in dual POV, Transfer has a beautifully crafted plot with action, complex characters, and smoking hot romance! Roman and Elisabeth, the spotlight characters fromRetrieval, continue to play a critical role in the plot and the dynamics between all four characters was quite entertaining. I enjoyed the diversity between the two couples and loved how they complimented each other so well. The story arc was well developed, and the twists and turns kept me engaged the entire read.
Overall, Transfer and Retrieval blew my mind, made me smile, and the action kept my heart pumping the entire time. Aly Martinez deserves a standing ovation for this masterpiece of work, and I cannot wait to see what she comes up with next!
