Fighting Silence ( On The Ropes Book 1) By: Aly Martinez

I love discovering new authors especially new authors with a fresh story to tell. This story is one of those books you read and it reminds you of a love story with purpose. It’s not just boy meets girl and they have a simple misunderstanding this is real life. The good, bad and definitely the ugly. I admit I was a little hesitant because this is a series but readers this is a full story that ends in a hea.

Till didn’t have the best introduction in life. His father would sell him out to save his own life and his only glimmer of hope was Eliza. She was not only his love but his best friend. I love that as a reader we got to see their relationship grow from childhood to adulthood.

Everything was a fight. He had to fight for his life, respect, love and now his hearing. Life happens and people grow apart. But you never forget your first love.

This story is an emotional rollercoaster and as a reader you experience it all. They live in a world that they created as a means of escape but reality soon sets in. Till knows at this point in his life he cannot be everything sweet Eliza needs. He has his brothers to take care of and at this point in his life he can’t offer her much.

 Eliza isn’t a pushover. Being viewed as invisible but to Till she is the world. These two lean on each other through the most difficult parts of life and often times not always together. Granted I didn’t like that for a good portion of the book the two weren’t together.

Although this book is such a rollercoaster Flint and Quarry are very funny. Hopefully we will get more of them. I thoroughly enjoyed this story and can’t wait to see what else the author has in story. Please judge this book for yourself and not based on this one review.
