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.

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.

Fighting

This story is amazing and the audible version makes it twice as great. These two narrators make the images come alive.

I Adore This Series!

I can't even begin to express how much I adore this series. Every single book in this series has made me cry at least one time while reading. All the books are so emotionally potent that I'm at a loss for words.

Mrs. Martinez has a way with her writing, that even something as boring as a backstory to her main characters becomes interesting along the way. It also blows my mind how she got me (as a reader) to care so much about a character who was eventually going to be gone by the first chapter.

Quarry (AKA 'Q') is incredibly stubborn and tries to live how he wants to live. As stubborn as he is, he's also loyal and caring to a fault. He will do anything and everything in his power, if it means harm will not to come to those he loves.

Liv is a traumatized little girl who's feisty and stands up for herself. She had it rough in the first few years of her life and even though everything turned around the trauma is still there. The amazing thing is that she doesn't let it hold her back from experiencing life and love.

I hope this isn't the last book in this series (even though it REALLY felt like the end because of all the different point of views in the last chapter of this novel). I enjoy Mrs. Martinez's writing and will probably be picking up some of her other books in the near future.

My Favorite Quotes:

"Our happy lives were nothing more than a gentle melody that lulls you into a nightmare."

"Every single day, I smiled. Every single day, I lived. Every single day, I laughed."

"Reality didn't seem like the right word at all. That moment felt a whole lot like fantasy to me."

"Losing you is frightening. Trusting you not to break me is petrifying."

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.

Book perfection! The entire series!

Good strong characters! Hot steamy chemistry and sex! Amazing storyline! Major book withdrawl with this series.

My favorite in order of series:
Fighting Solitude
Fighting Silence
Fighting Shadows

BUT you need to read them in order, everything makes more sense that way.

Love this Series

I absolutely loved this whole series, however I think Q was my favorite. I loved getting to know the man that we saw grow up through the rest of the series. Amazing audio!!!

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!

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.
