Goodreads Description: From USA Today Bestselling Author Aly Martinez comes an all new standalone.
Growing up, Ramsey Stewart branded my soul in ways time could never heal.
At twelve, he asked me to be his girlfriend.
At thirteen, he gave me my first kiss.
By sixteen, we’d fallen in love, planned a future together, and had our eyes set on the horizon.
Love never fails, right?
But for Ramsey, it did.
Love failed him.
I failed him.
The entire world failed him.
At seventeen, Ramsey was convicted of killing the boy who assaulted me.
Move on, he wrote in his first and only letter from prison.
Start a new life, he urged.
I don’t love you anymore, he lied.
There was no such thing as giving up on Ramsey. Love may have been our curse, but he was mine—then, now, and forever.
So here I am, twelve long years later, waiting for a man I don’t even know to emerge from between the chain link gates.
Talk about an emotional read!! I’ve never read anything by Aly Martinez but I very well may go back and read everything she’s ever written. My heart was shattered during parts of this book. Other times I was laughing out loud. One point I even woke up my 4 year old cause I audibly gasped ‘What?!’. I could almost swear I physically felt the emotional gut punch that Thea experienced in the story.
Last year I read Eleanor and Grey by Brittany Cherry and I swore I would probably never read something even remotely as emotional as that book. Apparently that’s when Aly Martinez was like ‘Hold my beer’ because I was literally wrecked reading Released. Thea and Ramsey have an amazing story. From two young kids who find each other at a time in life where they can’t get any lower to adults trying to recover from life changing mistakes.
🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟(5 out of 5) There really aren’t enough stars to rate how amazing this book was for me. It was like reliving all my teenage heartbreaks but magnified by infinity. The emotional hangover I’m going to have from Release is going to take days to recover from. Aly Martinez has won my heart ❤ ok so maybe it was more the Ramsey Stewart special.
You can grab a copy of Release for $4.99 or check it out free on Kindle Unlimited
Originally from Savannah, Georgia, USA Today bestselling author Aly Martinez now lives in South Carolina with her husband and four young children.
Never one to take herself too seriously, she enjoys cheap wine, mystery leggings, and olives. It should be known, however, that she hates pizza and ice cream, almost as much as writing her bio in the third person.
She passes what little free time she has reading anything and everything she can get her hands on, preferably with a super-sized tumbler of wine by her side.
