TRANSFER by Aly Martinez Release Blitz Review



The Retrieval Duet by Aly Martinez is a two part series.



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 (The Retrieval Duet, #2)

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book picks up exactly where the first one left off. In that scene, it seems like everything is over, but there’s really so much left to figure out.
Clare really caught my attention in the first book so I loved getting to know her on a deeper level in this one. I liked all four of the main people, but she’s the star in my opinion. The men are very sexy and alpha. The women are easy to empathize with and love.
Transfer delivers the suspense. The villain is totally evil and really works over the readers hate emotion. The showdown is a doozy so be prepared. There’s romance, revenge, fear, pain, joy and a bit of everything inside.

The Goal by Elle Kennedy Review

She’s good at achieving her goals…

College senior Sabrina James has her whole future planned out: graduate from college, kick butt in law school, and land a high-paying job at a cutthroat firm. Her path to escaping her shameful past certainly doesn’t include a gorgeous hockey player who believes in love at first sight. One night of sizzling heat and surprising tenderness is all she’s willing to give John Tucker, but sometimes, one night is all it takes for your entire life to change.

But the game just got a whole lot more complicated

Tucker believes being a team player is as important as being the star. On the ice, he’s fine staying out of the spotlight, but when it comes to becoming a daddy at the age of twenty-two, he refuses to be a bench warmer. It doesn’t hurt that the soon-to-be mother of his child is beautiful, whip-smart, and keeps him on his toes. The problem is, Sabrina’s heart is locked up tight, and the fiery brunette is too stubborn to accept his help. If he wants a life with the woman of his dreams, he’ll have to convince her that some goals can only be made with an assist.

The Goal (Off-Campus, #4)

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

There could not possibly be a better man than Tucker. He’s my best-loved guy from the series for sure, and he jumped near the top of my favorite book boyfriends ever list. Just wow! I need this man in my life for real.
Sabrina takes a little more work to like. She comes off wrong sometimes, but I admired her drive. I also think she endured Tucker’s mom way better than I would have. No wonder Tucker knew just how to handle Sabrina dealing with a mom like that!
The story starts out sexy, fun and mostly shallow, but it soon brings on loads of feels and deepness. I was definitely rooting for Sabrina and Tucker to make it. Both go through quite a journey to reach their goals. I really liked and definitely recommend it.

A HIGHLANDER’S CHRISTMAS KISS by Paula Quinn Release Blitz Review

Title: A Highlander’s Christmas Kiss
Author: Paula Quinn
On Sale: September 27, 2016
Series: Highland Heirs, #5
Publisher: Forever
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Price: $7.99 USD


Christmas may be coming to Linavar, but Temperance Menzie is far from joyful. Grief-stricken over the death of her father at the hands of the Black Riders, she almost didn't see the wounded stranger in the woods. And now she's determined to give this braw, brooding Highlander the help she couldn't give her father. But there's a secret lurking in the depths of his blue-gray eyes. And Temperance won't rest until she uncovers it . . .


A killer for hire. It's the last thing Cailean Grant ever thought he'd become, but being part of the Black Riders was his only way to survive. Now, his guilt grows day by day, along with his desire for the beautiful, brave lass nursing him back to health. As Christmas, the season of miracles, draws near and the truth of his identity threatens to come out, Cailean must risk the only thing he has left to lose – his heart.



She stopped walking and pulled on his hand to stop him as well. “Who am I to you?”
What? What had he said? He realized quickly enough, scowled, and then smiled, giving in to what his heart was telling him. “Ye are—” He paused, not truly sure what to say. He hadn’t wanted to care for her, but he did. He’d let her in, but how could he have denied her entrance? She’d been through much, thanks to him, and yet she still smiled, she still sang, she still had compassion to help him heal.
He began again, reaching for her. He pulled her closer and wrapped his arms around her plaid- encased body, shielding her from the wind. “Ye are my candle in the dark.” He stopped again to take her in. He smiled. “I’m better at puttin’ a quill to m’ words than I am at speakin’ them.”
Her wide, beautiful eyes glittered like the snow dusting the braes. He wanted to lose himself there in the expectant hope that lit her gaze.
“You’re doing just fine,” she assured him softly. “Continue, please.”
He shoved aside everything on his mind but her. What was left scared the hell out him. “I canna—”
She waited in silence while he fought his demon for her. Her hope began to fade to disappointment.
It made him smile to think her hope was to be with him and she was waiting to hear him tell her.
“I canna take my gaze from ye, lass. No matter what I’m doin’, m’ eyes find their way back to yer rich dark hair fallin’ over yer flawless jaw, the relaxed curl of your bottom lip that tempts my legs to bring me to wherever ye are. I lay awake at night imaginin’ yer soft inhalations of breath. They fill my heart with something other than mortar and fury. I want to bring ye to me but I’m unworthy of yer dreams. Still, I want to be in them, as ye are in mine.”
“You see?” she said breathlessly. “Just fine.” She closed her eyes and parted her lips when he dipped his head to hers.
He moved his mouth over hers, basking in the intimacy of kissing her, capturing her short, eager breaths. His senses came alive and he used each one of them to fill himself with her. She tasted like passion and innocence. When he slipped his tongue over hers, she opened her arms and coiled them around his neck, covering them both in his plaid. He listened to her heart beating like ancient drums. Or was it his own heart he was hearing? He withdrew a hairbreadth so he could look at her again. The sight of her dreamy-eyed and wanting more nearly drove him mad. He brushed his nose across her temple to her hair, drinking in the scent of her, like the familiar fragrance of peat and pine. “Ye’re bringin’ me back to life, lass.”
He kissed her again, barely holding back the passion raging inside him to be released.

New York Times bestselling author Paula Quinn lives in New York with her three beautiful children, three over-protective chihuahuas, and a loud umbrella cockatoo. She loves to read romance and science fiction and has been writing since she was eleven. She loves all things medieval, but it is her love for Scotland that pulls at her heartstrings.

A Highlander's Christmas Kiss (The MacGregors: Highland Heirs, #5)

I started this story before realizing it was part of a series so I don’t know the histories and such. I followed the storyline easily, but probably those who have read the other books will be more invested in the characters and plot.
Cailean is sexy, strong and fierce, everything a girl wants in her Highlander. He’s a bit heartsick in the beginning and makes some bad decisions which come back to haunt him.
More than one man desires to make Temperance his wife, but none can win her heart before Cailean. Her name isn’t fitting at all. She’s outgoing and headstrong, and she’s sometimes quick to react before thinking through.
Although Cailean and Temperance are not always on the same side of a situation, the reader can feel the inevitable pull between them. A Highlander’s Christmas Kiss has love, death, romance and action. There are also plenty of side characters to that draw the reader’s attention. The villains are really easy to hate, and the heroes are likable.
