After a mix-up at the fertility clinic, two couples are forever changed when their lives suddenly collide.
"The Retrieval Duet is an emotionally-gripping, twisty ride punctuated by intense chemistry and the hottest alpha male I've read in ages!" -New York Times Bestselling Author Meghan March
RETRIEVAL One date. That was all it took for me to know Elisabeth was my soul mate. Five years, countless infertility treatments, and the loss of our only son. That was what it took for me to lose her. One phone call, a mix-up at the lab, and a little girl neither of us knew existed. That was the hell it took to bring her back to me. And this time, I wasn’t letting go. This is the story of how I took back what had always been mine. The retrieval of my wife and my family.
TRANSFER I married a monster. What started out as romance ended in hell. My sole job in life was to protect our daughter. Until a police officer informed me of a mix-up at the lab. My little girl was the only thing keeping me alive. And I didn’t even know if she was mine. This is the story of how I escaped the man who thought he owned me. The transfer of my life and my family.
***3-4 Star Review***
I listened to the audio book of this duet. The narrators were great. You could feel every emotion through their voices. They did a wonderful job telling us this story.
Retrieval: 4 Stars
Elisabeth & Roman are divorced but the love it still there. They don't see each other for a couple years and when they finally do, they get news that turns their world upside down. My heart broke for Elisabeth and all she went through. I could not imagine what I would do if I were her and was dealt the hand given to her. Roman was a great character too. He dealt with the stress in his own ways and never truly gave up on Elisabeth. He had me swooning at all his alpha antics. Clare, poor Clare. This woman gets blow after blow in this book but the fight is still in her. She will do anything to protect what's hers.
The ending left me on the edge of my seat. THANKFULLY, I didn't have to wait for book 2 because I needed to know what the heck was going to happen next.
Transfer: 3 Stars
Transfer picks right up from book 1. However, it focuses more on Clare and Heath then Elisabeth and Roman, which I think made me struggle with this book. I definitely wanted more of Clare and Heath but I feel like the other characters and the main part of the story line of book 1 got pushed aside. The story is slower (until the end) and focuses on the building relationship between Clare and Heath. I just kept thinking, Wait a minute...What about the serious situations that are going on right now? How can they not be focusing on the bigger, more dangerous picture after everything that just went down?! I am all for the love, romance and sexy scenes (which were hot) but they just didn't fit. Also, there was never a discussion of Tessa and how that whole situation would be handled.
It's really hard to write this review because I do not want to spoil anything. Overall, I was a little let down with book 2 but I will say that I love the way this duet ended. The epilogue made my heart swell for all the characters.
