Publisher's Summary

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.

Didn’t work for me

Although I do usually love Aly Martinez’s books, this one just missed the mark for me. I didn’t really connect with Liv and Quarry as a couple. And their story just dragged on and on and after awhile, it felt like the same issues kept coming up. I couldn’t wait for it to end. This won’t stop me from reading future books by Ms. Martinez tho. This one just didn’t work for me.

Another Page brother does well!

I think that Aly Martinez is an underrated author. I constantly search to find new work from her because she writes real stories without the characters becoming caricatures, where the good guys are too good and the bad guys are all evil. She doesn't write easy stories, she writes stories you have to listen to carefully because of her attention to detail and the shades of grey that make up a person's existence. She's an automatic purchase for me, she brings stories to life realistically and entertainingly.

This series is awesome

The whole series is great! I listened each of the three books back-to-back. It has all the elements that keep you riveted. The author shows that even with different abilities (deafness, paralysis) dreams can and do come true. Narrators are terrific. They are new narrators to me.

I gave this review without anything in return. Definitely worth a credit.

Excellent end to the series

I went through all of the books in this series in the last few days and all are great. This one is especially poignant as we see the three Page brothers achieve all that they were hoping for through the darkness of their early years. One thing I have to say about all of these books- there is a hopefulness, a beauty, to the way that Aly Martinez writes, as evidenced by these books. There are no long, drawn out silly miscommunications that cause issues between the couples- no, these couples fight against real threats that solidify their bonds and build on their love. I especially adored that about this series and this book was no different. Liv has loved Quarry forever. They were best friends all through childhood and then something that happened when they were young broke them apart. Years later, they are back together as best friends and Quarry has a girlfriend and Liv and she become best friends. Until the girlfriend dies. That's really where part 2 of the story begins. It was beautifully done and there's always a difficulty in portraying a love between a woman and a man who has lost a great love of his life. But this author did it so well. For those that love sports romances, all of this is happening with boxing in the background. I fell in love with all the characters. And the family- I love this family and I'm so happy that we had the opportunity to revisit them throughout the three books. Carson Beck and Laura Jennings narrate all the books in this series and they were really good. I thought that Carson's female voice was a little high this time around but it didn't take away from my enjoyment of the book at all mostly because I was so invested in the characters.

Heartwarming story

I really enjoyed listening to this story. It elicits several emotions in the listener. The narrator did a wonderful job. Story was filled with drama, love, hate, and steamy sex. Looking forward to listening to the next book written by this author.

Quarry and Liv

Aly Martinez is an absolutely fantastic story teller. I adored this charming, beautiful, and heartfelt story. This entire series has been outstanding. But Quarry is probably my favorite of the Page brothers. Narration was perfection!

Amazing series

where to begin. I think Q is my favorite! the Page brothers life is definitely one for the books. the struggle they went to would break the strongest person with the hand they were dealt but the love that pushed them was even stronger. No matter how long or what they had to do their love for their women never wavered. truly a great read of everyday people and some really hot sex.
