Publisher's Summary

I proposed on our first date.

She laughed and told me I was insane. Less than a day later, she said yes.

It was a whirlwind, but we were happy.

Until we got greedy and wanted a family.

It was a life I couldn't give her, not for lack of trying. Fertility just wasn't on our side. We sought out doctors and treatments. Spent money we didn't have. Lied to our families. Smiled for our friends. Put on a brave face for a world that didn't understand.

Finally, we were successful.

Until we were forced to bury our son.

We were left broken, battered, and destroyed.

They say love is in the details, but it was the details that ruined us.

This is the story of how I took back what had always been mine.

The retrieval of my wife and our family.

    "WOW!!! Breathtaking!!"

    Amazing! This has got to be the most captivating book I have listened to. Brilliantly written and I am eager to download Volume 2. Brilliantly narrated. I can't credit this book enough. I'd give it ten stars if I could and I would definitely urge, more than recommend, this book to everyone who wants to listen to an action packed, thrill a minute, 'real life' story. Awesome!

    "Good story, narration varied performance"

    The story is capturing and deals with modern dilemmas.

    Male narration was great. I believe there are two female voices; one for Elizabeth and one for Claire. Unfortunately narration for Claire was very poor and it spoilt the book for me. I would have given top stars if it wasn't for Claire's narration.

    Why there are no credits for both narrators? I would like to know Claire's to ensure I avoid in the future.

    I love how captivating this book is! It's interesting to hear both perspectives of thoughts and feelings from Elizabeth and Roman...the past and the present! Can't wait to read book two!!

    Story
    "Woah"

    I really didn't know what to expect as I didn't read the blurb but someone told me, "I think it's about a couple that had a miscarriage". Imagine my surprise when it was not only so flatly about a couple who had lost a baby, but it was soooo much more.

    The love between Elisabeth and Roman was PALPABLE. The alpha manly way that Roman takes his life and his woman back was hot AF. The. There is sooo much more with the side story with Clare. I just had no idea that I would be this sucked into this audio and so incredibly invested in the story. I didn't even want to pause for a review.

    Do I even need to mention Jason, Maxine and Andi? We all know they are amazing, we all know they fail at nothing and all they do is win.

    "Great Book!!!"

    This was a great book. I had this in my library for a while. Decided it was time to read a new book by an author I had not read before. I did not regret it. I loved the story and the suspense. The narration was excellent!!!!

    Would you consider the audio edition of Retrieval to be better than the print version?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    This duology is interesting. I don't think I'd say they were amazing. But they were okay. I like how it tells the story of two couples. And the story of the second couple that you get in the first book, is finished off in this book. I enjoyed how the author unraveled how the two couples are related. The little girl was my favorite.

    I read and write book reviews regularly. If you would like more book suggestions, please follow my reviews on the Goodreads website. I update regularly!

    "A cliff but it's worth it"

    Yes, there's a dreaded cliffhanger (which I usually loathe) but this book is worth it. the narration was flawless, the story perfection. I utterly enjoyed every minute of this story and will happily one-click the next installment.

    "An enthralling listening from beginning to end!"
    Where does Retrieval rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's definitely among my top favorites now.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It was intriguing and captivating.


    Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I'm a HUGE fan of Jason Carpenter and was first introduced to him through his excellent voice acting on Helena Hunting's Clipped Wings series. I first discovered Andi Arndt when I listened to her wonderful narration of Pulled by AL Jackson. These two never fail to suck me into the story. Maxine Mitchell was a new-to-me narrator.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Most definitely. I listened to the bulk of it while doing my laundry, and it made that drudgery way less annoying than it usually is.


    Any additional comments?

    I was so relieved to have the sequel already in my Audible collection so I didn't have to wait.

    This was such an awesome story of second chances. Aly Martinez is such a great author and I love her books. Once Roman set his mind to something he goes full speed ahead. Was not expecting the twist this book took on. Can't wait to read the second book.

    "what an unexpected surprise"

    I have to say, this was not the plot I had imagined it would be but can I say WOW! The only thing I didn't like about the performance is when the male and female narrators would speak for the same character, specifically detective light. They made him sound completely different. But other than that small, tinsey wincey, unimportant blip, amazing!
