Fighting Silence - Aly Martinez (On The Ropes #1)

Published Date:February 23, 2015
Genre: New Adult/Romance
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.

Each book in this series can be read as a standalone.

This is one book that I can vouch for without having any incentive behind. Aly Martinez brings a whole new perspective into books with the characters -- So damaged and yet so perfect. I took a chance on the boxset because of the many great reviews. 

Till Page and Eliza Reynolds are definitely a book couple that I can love. 

Like I said, Martinez gives us a brilliant perspective into new things. One that I definitely did not expect. 

Just take a chance and read this book.

Till is finding for himself and his family. A beautiful soul inside and out -- Especially when he is looking to get Eliza back. What Till wants, he gets.

5 out of 5 stars.

Blog you later, awesome book nerds.
