One story. Two couples.
I fell in love with a man who didn't exist.

What started out as romance ended in hell.
His words turned to razor blades.
His kisses converted to fists.
His embrace became my cage.
His body transformed into a weapon, stealing parts of me until ultimately....
I broke.

I hated him.
My sole job in life became to protect our daughter.

I wasn't sure I'd ever escape the prison he'd skillfully crafted from my fears.
Until the day our savior arrived.

This is the story of how I escaped the man who thought he owned me. The transfer of my life and my family.

Crista’s Review

5 stars!

***Spoiler-Free Review***

Please be careful when reading reviews about Transfer.  This second book in the Retrieval Duet must be experienced without knowing much about it to be enjoyed to its fullest.

In a nutshell, Transfer is about Clare’s journey away from the darkness of her marriage and the monster with whom she is married into the light of freedom, safety, and love.

Ever since watching Julia Roberts in the movie Sleeping With the Enemy, and then watching Julianne Hough in the movie Safe Haven, I have been looking for a book that would give me the same kind of butterflies and edge of my seat suspense that these movies did.  I have found that book with Transfer.

In this book, all of the characters who we met in Retrieval finally intersect in what can only be described as jaw dropping, eye opening, and shocking!  I won’t say much more than that.

I loved Clare’s character.  She was beaten, but also has an inner strength and a commitment to protect those she loved.  I cared about her character and I wanted her to find happiness.

This book is also told in multiple points of view.  Clare’s voice is heard, but so is another point of view.  One that caught me off-guard.  Let me just be vague when I say, this other viewpoint is so incredibly refreshing that I experienced a peace and certainty that everything was going to be alright.

I can’t recommend this series any higher.  Although I liked Retrieval, it was Transfer that launched this book onto my favorites shelf.  Highly recommended this duet series.
