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.

review

To say I’ve been chomping my nails waiting for Flint’s story is a serious understatement.  The wait was so worth it!!  OMG!  I loved Till Page in Fighting Silence.  I FLOVE Flint’s story.  I don’t even know how I could love Flint’s story more, but I do.  Or maybe my heart is just torn in two for these boys.  Whatever it is, they are stories I will never forget.

At the end of Till’s story, you just knew that Flint’s story was going to be an emotional rollercoaster.  I knew my heart would break.  I knew my heart would soar and I knew that I would fall in love with Flint.  Fighting Shadows takes off right where Fighting Silence ends.  They can be read as standalones, but please pick up Fighting Shadows I guarantee you will love Till Page’s story which will introduce you to Flint also.

I was seriously blown away with the first.  Now, I do believe I just got knocked flat on my @$$! Even if you didn’t read the first book (which again I am telling you that you MUST or you are missing out) you will fall right into this book with no problems (except me being mad you didn’t read the first book, lol)

This is all about Flint Page ( Till’s younger brother) and Ash Mabie.  You will live Flint’s journey of trying to overcome what happened in Fighting Silence and acceptance of what is now his life.  He has always felt more love for Eliza (Till’s wife) than he should.  I understand why he feels what he does; it’s easily confused when you have a mother figure/ friend/ beautiful woman around you for the first time in your life.  It’s not until he meets Ash that finally begins to live and recognizes his true feelings.   I love Ash’s character; despite how she lived she was the complete opposite of what you would expect her to be.

And folks, that’s all you’re going to get from me, because I feel like I will start spewing spoilers and no one likes that!

I really am a new Aly Martinez super fan.  Sure, I’ve  read some of her other books and I’ve enjoyed each that I’ve read but this Page boys, I just can’t even put into words how much I love them.  I love each character in these books, they all blend so well together creating the perfect cocktail!  Her stories flow and will leave you reading straight into the night because you can’t put them down.  Quarry’s book is next and I just know without a doubt his story will be equally heartbreaking.  The Page brothers haven’t had an easy life and your heart surely won’t have an easy ride when reading these books!

Kudos Aly!  Another 5…errr 6? Can I give a 6 star read?  SURE I CAN!  This is a must read series everyone.  Pick them BOTH up now.

fighting silence

 

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.
