Quarry just might be the one I love the most. He is the youngest brother and out of the three he is the one that was able to follow his dream at being a boxer. Like his brother, he has a hearing problem but because of him he’s learned how to live life with it. I loved how he was able to learn from his brothers mistakes and have it make him a better man. 
We go back to when Q is a child and we get to see the start to finish in the relationship he has with Liv. They knew that they were fated to be in each other’s lives and they thought it was friends. That is until they become adults and that all goes out the window when attraction and lust enter the picture. Liv wants him on an animalistic level but can’t because he fell in love with her friend.
As we know how that ends up.
While Liv spent most of her time in a happy household, her first few years were not. It’s those memories that haunt her that make her believe that she can’t have Q even when the universe is basically forcing them together. This all comes to a head in my favorite scene where Liv admits her fears to Q when his hearing aids are out and she knows he can’t hear her. That fear designated deep into each letter written during her speech and shaped how she let Q in her life.
There are a lot of twists in this story (far more then the first two). It is full circle for the three boys as they get resolutions in their story and try to make lives for themselves despite their crappy upbringing. I loved every second of it because I’ve been rooting for the boys since the first page of the first book and I am glad to see them all get their HEA.

Fighting Silence (On the Ropes, #1)

Buy it here or read it for FREE on KindleUnlimited:

Amazon US | Amazon UK | Amazon CA | Amazon AU

Synopsis:

Sound is an abstract concept for most people. We spend our lives blocking out the static in order to focus on what we believe is important. But what if, when the clarity fades into silence, it’s the obscure background noise that you would give anything to hold on to?

I’ve always been a fighter. With parents who barely managed to stay out of jail and two little brothers who narrowly avoided foster care, I became skilled at dodging the punches life threw at me. Growing up, I didn’t have anything I could call my own, but from the moment I met Eliza Reynolds, she was always mine. I became utterly addicted to her and the escape from reality we provided each other. Throughout the years, she had boyfriends and I had girlfriends, but there wasn’t a single night that I didn’t hear her voice.

You see, meeting the love of my life at age thirteen was never part of my plan. However, neither was gradually going deaf at the age of twenty-one.

They both happened anyway.

Now, I’m on the ropes during the toughest battles of my life.

Fighting for my career.

Fighting the impending silence.

Fighting for her.

Every night, just before falling asleep, she sighs as a final conscious breath leaves her.

I think that’s the sound I’ll miss the most.

Fighting Shadows (On the Ropes, #2)

Buy it here or read it for FREE on KindleUnlimited:

Amazon US | Amazon UK | Amazon CA | Amazon AU

Synopsis:

I come from a family of fighters. I always thought I’d follow in their shadows, becoming unstoppable in the ring. That changed the day I saved the life of a woman I loved, but could never have.

My brother hailed me as a hero, and my reward was a wheelchair.

Paralyzed, my life became an inescapable nightmare.

Until I met her.

Ash Mabie had a heart-stopping smile and a laugh that numbed the rage and resentment brewing inside of me. She showed me that even the darkest night still had stars, and it didn’t matter one bit that you had to lie in the weeds to see them.

I was a jaded asshole who fell for a girl with a knack for running away. I couldn’t even walk but I would have spent a lifetime chasing her.

Now, I’m on the ropes during the toughest battles of my life.

Fighting the shadows of our past.

Fighting to reclaim my future.

Fighting for her.

—————————-

 

Fighting Solitude (On the Ropes, #3)

Buy it here or read it for FREE on KindleUnlimited:

Amazon US | Amazon UK | Amazon CA | Amazon AU

Synopsis:

I was born a fighter. Abandoned by my parents, I spent my life forging my own path—one guided by my fists and paved with pain.

Untouchable in the ring, I destroyed everyone who faced me, but that’s where my victories ended. Outside the ropes, I repeatedly failed the few people who loved me. Including my best friend, Liv James—the one person I’d die to protect.

Even though I didn’t deserve her, Liv never stopped believing in me. Never gave up. Never let go. After all, she understood what I’d lost, because she’d lost it too.

Liv was everything to me, but she was never truly mine.

That was going to change.

I lost my first love, but I refused to lose my soulmate.

Now, I’m on the ropes during the toughest battles of my life.

Fighting to be the man she deserves.

Fighting the solitude of our pasts.

Fighting for her.

Review: ‘Fighting Silence’ by Aly Martinez – a fight to make fantasy into a reality

fighting silence

Format: e-book, paperback, hard cover

Format read: e-book

Series: book 1 of On the Ropes series

Rating: 18+ language, themes, sexual content

Genre: New Adult

Goodreads page: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/23206497-fighting-silence

Till and Eliza have something that is beautiful and real that it makes you want to hate them. They both grow up from a low class life and thinking that they are not good enough. But with each other, they find that they are more than enough for each other. Though, it does take some time for that to happen. There are times that Till is going to annoy you, because he REALLY got on my nerves at the beginning of the book. But you know that there is a reason behind it. He’s a good man who wants what’s best for his family and Eliza.

Eliza knows that Till is the one that she wants for her life. She sees what he has inside of him and only wants what’s best for him. I loved reading her and her determination to get him to see the world for what it is. The way that they argue over reality and fantasy. We all know that struggle of what we want to do and what can actually happen. Sometimes when we get something that we really want, it’s easy to think that we don’t deserve it.

So I did this series a little backwards. I was able to get an ARC copy for the second book of the series, so I read that and already knew bits and pieces about this couple. But actually reading how they got together and to their happy ever after is a whole new thing. What made it bad was that I was expecting something to happen with Eliza and Flint since he was so obsessed with her in the second book, but there was nothing. It was always Till for her and I didn’t understand why Flint was so obsessed with her.

If we put that aside and focus just on the main story at hand, you will find that it’s a book that you won’t be able to put down. Aly Martinez’s characters in this world have a lot of heart ache and problems that it’s a pleasure to get to see them fight through the fantasy world and embrace the idea that fantasy can be reality if you believe in it and work hard for it.
