Summary

From USA Today best-selling Author Aly Martinez comes an emotional new standalone. 

Growing up, Ramsey Stewart branded my soul in ways time could never heal. 

At 12, he asked me to be his girlfriend. 

At 13, he gave me my first kiss. 

By 16, we’d fallen in love, planned a future together, and had our eyes set on the horizon. 

Love never fails, right? 

But for Ramsey, it did. 

Love failed him. 

I failed him. 

The entire world failed him. 

At 17, Ramsey was convicted of killing the boy who assaulted me. 

"Move on", he wrote in his first and only letter from prison. 

"Start a new life", he urged. 

"I don’t love you anymore", he lied. 

There was no such thing as giving up on Ramsey. Love may have been our curse, but he was mine - then, now, and forever. 

So here I am, 12 long years later, waiting for a man I don't even know to emerge from between the chain link gates.

A Stunning Read

A beautiful story brilliantly narrated by two of the finest Narraters. This is a story of a young love between a ‘broken’ boy and a ‘broken’ girl and how they deal with the ‘curve balls’ that life throws them and finally find an ending that's right for them. Aly I loved listening to this book - a real winner for me! I hope others think this way too. I would definitely recommend this heartfelt story to other readers.

Pleasantly Surprised

This was a different type of love story and I am so glad that it is. Ally thought outside the box with this one and it was very refreshing! The narration was excellent!! I would highly recommend this book and hope to hear more about Nora’s story!

Love that is worth fighting for.❤️

Release is a second chance story. It’s a story of a connection of deep friendship that is made as children and then to lovers in high school. Life can change in a matter of minutes. Release takes us on a tale on giving that connection and love a second chance. Aly writes this story with heart. 4 stars for this story that made me laugh, cry, and swoon.

Wow. What a well done book

Of course what book performed by Andi & Jason isn't great? Add on top of that, one that is also well written, thought out and entertaining. That is what you have with this book. The story flows and keeps you entertained from start to finish. Some highs and lows and lots of live and tenderness.
