*Taps Mic* 
Aly Martinez....I'm taking up residency inside your head..I will live there...for eternity....with Mr Till Page and I will build windows for that sexy, beautiful, charming guy to climb through!
You keep writing these books that stay in my head, heart and soul for minutes, hours, days and now WEEKS, words that I cannot stop thinking about, and a book hangover that has been with me since finishing that very last sentence. I don't know whether to kiss you, or poke your eyes out! I can't get over this soul consuming read! I hope you are happy with yourself! Now go to your room! You are grounded!!

This book is NOT what I was expecting! It is NOT just a fighter book, it is so much more beautiful and heartfelt than anything I could have imagined.
This story starts with the main characters as children. Children, who are strangers that found each other in this run down, abandoned apartment, escaping from reality and seeking something that provides them with just a little happiness out of the lives they have. Eliza and Till form a friendship, a trust in each other, a pact and something so beautiful develops between them, that ensured my eyes were leaking at every page I turned.

Till is the guy who had to grow up far to fast, sacrificing his own wishes because he was having to provide for his two younger brothers. His parents only cared about themselves and he fought so hard to keep his brothers happy, healthy and TOGETHER. With something looming over him that will eventually change his life completely, was the final punch to my heart and I seriously could not love this beautiful character any more than I already did.

Eliza Reynolds is the girl whose parents couldn't care less, but the lack of love, happiness and life lessons from them has not defined her. She is one of my favourite book heroines to date and shows so much courage and strength from start to finish. My heart broke for her a number of times and watching a friendship eventually blossom into something so beautiful and span over a long period of time has completely consumed me.

Together, these two characters are just MAGIC! Their chemistry, their endless LOVE and fight is so real that I was swept away completely by their beautiful journey.

The appearance of characters from other books by Aly Martinez was OUTSTANDING. How she tied it all together with one gigantic fabulous bow was GENIUS!!!

This is without a shadow of a doubt, Aly Martinez' best book to date!! FACT!!! Her writing is absolutely exquisite, you will highlight every page and it opens your world to an abundance of emotions that will stay with you FOREVER.

*Sexy Excerpt*
“Hi.” I stood up off the bed as he started climbing through the window.
His eyes went wide when he saw me, causing him to momentarily lose his balance on the windowsill and go crashing to the floor. “God. Damn,” he cursed as he rose to his feet while taking in my new wardrobe. “You… I…um…” His hand went to his lip.
He was rooted in place only a few steps away, but his eyes traveled over every inch of my body and back again.
Till was speechless. I had never felt so empowered in my life.
“Are you okay?” I feigned concern as I slowly approached.
“Not even close,” he told my breasts, making me giggle.
After sliding a hand under the edge of his T-shirt, I raked a fingernail over each of his abs before dipping it into the waistband of his jeans.
“I’m sore today,” I announced, closing the distance between us. My breasts were pressed against him, but he still hadn’t even attempted to touch me yet. I had plans to remedy that. I smirked then stood up on my tiptoes, kissing the base of his neck. “Make me sore for tomorrow too.” At the last second, I darted my tongue out to the hollow dip at the base of his neck. It was meant to tease him, but as the taste of his skin hit my tongue, I was flooded with memories of taking more of him in my mouth. The moan escaped before I’d even felt it coming.
A loud rumble shook his chest, but that was the only warning I received. Suddenly, I was off my feet and sailing through the air. Just as I landed on the bed, Till crashed on top of me. His mouth roughly landed on mine.
“Tell me we can’t do this again,” he demanded as his hands found my breasts.
“We’re definitely doing this again.” I arched into him.
“It’s gonna get so messy, Eliza. Please.” He groaned as I reached into the front of his jeans.
“I’m okay with messy,” I breathed, guiding his hand from my breast and into my panties.
“Fuuuuuck” he cursed when he discovered just how thorough I’d been with the razor earlier. His finger pressed inside me as his body traveled down the bed and settled between my legs, stripping my panties off during his descent.
He added another finger in a less than gentle but overwhelmingly intoxicating, rhythm.
“Tell me to stop, Eliza. We can’t do this again.” He grazed his teeth on the inside of my thigh.
“We’re already doing it.”
“Tell me to stop.”
“It’s going to ruin us.”
“If you don’t stop talking, you’re going to ruin this.”
“I’m serious.” He kissed the inside of my other thigh, his fingers never faltering in their steady pace.
“So am I. Stop trying to talk yourself out of this while your fingers are buried inside me.” I threaded a hand into his hair and gave it a gentle tug.
“Goddammit. Tell me to stop!” he demanded one last time, but his fingers sped before twisting in the most delicious way.
I decided to give him what he wanted, but only because I knew he wouldn’t follow through.
“Stop.” I rolled my hips forcing him even deeper.
“Well, it’s too fucking late now.”
I would have laughed, but his mouth sealed over my clit and stole my breath, words, thoughts, and orgasm. My body shook as he pushed me higher even while I was falling. It shouldn’t have worked like that, but whatever voodoo magic Till Page was working with that night was all right with me. He didn’t stop swirling his tongue until I used his hair to pry his mouth away.
“Too much!” I cried.
He looked up with a wickedly proud grin. His hand disappeared, and seconds later, his cock replaced it.

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.
