I was born a fighter. Abandoned by my parents, I spent my life forging my own path—one guided by my fists and paved with pain.

Untouchable in the ring, I destroyed everyone who faced me, but that’s where my victories ended. Outside the ropes, I repeatedly failed the few people who loved me. Including my best friend, Liv James—the one person I’d die to protect.

So, not gonna lie. I did NOT want read this book.


Yep, that's right you heard me. As much as I OMG lurved books one and two, I think I subconsciously had every intention of putting this one off until at least, oh, my 90th birthday.

Which will be here in no time in the year 2073.

When I'm sure I would have then been able to read it on my knew "Space Age Super Kindle" that just magically implants the story into your head in three easy seconds.

Last year I read this book called Fighting Silence by an author who was new to me. I heard the hero was deaf and I knew right away I had to pick it up. It was the best decision I ever made. I ended up falling in love with that book so hard, it was one of the best books I read in 2015. Fighting Solitude is the third book about the Page brothers. I know these characters. I love these characters. I feel so connected to them. And it makes me feel so much more when I

You, Quarry Page, are the embodiment of my greatest fear.

Aly, I don't know how you do it but damn but you do it well. This book was simply AMAZING. Easily my favorite in the series and my favorite the author has written to date. It was everything I had hoped it would be and so much more. I cried, I laughed, I swooned, and I fell so freaking hard for Quarry and Liv.

I seriously loved this one more than I thought was possible. I must preface this by saying I have not read books 1 & 2 yet, but still was able to follow the story without any issues. I definitely plan on reading the other books now that I’ve met the youngest of the Page brothers. At the beginning of the story I thought I had a clear picture of who the love interests were but then, BAM, a curve ball gets thrown at me, an

I didn't think it was possible for Aly Martinez to make me fall harder for this series. I was wrong, 'Fighting solitude' was everything and nothing that I expected all at the same time.
This author has the gorgeous talent of building her stories piece by piece and cleverly combining her gift of dramatic action and soul searching romance. I was left with nothing more to ask for and the overwhelming feeling of being

It seems that this will be the last book in this series as we have sadly ran out of Page brothers to swoon over. This is the youngest Page brother, Quarry’s story and it’s heartbreaking, angsty, and wraps up the series very nicely for fans!

Liv James is such a wonderful heroine and she sure grows into a fantastic woman during this story. We follow her relationship with Quarry from young kids to adults. From the moment I met her in her father’s story I wanted her to have an ep

Fighting Solitude is Quarry's book, the youngest Page brother, and let me tell you - I have been anxiously waiting to get my hands on this book. This has been a solid series for me -Aly's writing, the emotion, the journey - I feel like I know these boys, so their stories, their HEA's are very dear to me. And, Quarry, just like his brothers has not had it easy. While he has excelled in the ring, all he sees are failures in his personal life.

On the Ropes has been an epic series. Every book I read I love more than the last and that’s impressive because the Page brothers are pretty epic. This is Quarry’s story, the final story, the brother I have been waiting for since I read Fighting Silence.

From that moment we learned Quarry was going to lose his hearing, too. Since the moment he broke down and ran, because he was heartbroken. Then in Fighting Shadows when we learned that his long time girlfriend was dying. I knew this book would b

Fighting Solitude is a deeply satisfying end to this series, giving us a new Page brother to swoon over and a best friends to lovers romance that brings a smile to our faces and heat to our cheeks.

Quarry and Liv have been best friends since they were little, but before we see them get their inevitable, a misstep causes them to drift apart. It’s only after they reconnect, years later, that their relatio

I loved this book and everything about it. Out of the 3 books in the series, this one is my favorite. I knew from the moment we met Quarry as a little guy in the first book that I wanted to know how his story turned out.

On The Ropes series is an excellent series about 3 brothers and how they overcome hardships in their lives. Till is the oldest of the three and because of their neglectful parents, he takes it upon himself to raise his brothers. The sacrifice and discipline

Aly Martinez
has built the BEST fighter romance series I've read to date. The Page boys each getting their own book, their stories told, has gone full-circle with this final installment, Fighting Solitude. Each book can be read as a standalone but I'd highly recommend acquainting yourself to each character, watching their family grow as each book progresses. We knew at the conclusion of Flint's book, Fighting Shadows, that this
The Best In The Series!

I didn't think it possible to love two characters from this series more than I loved Till and Eliza from 'Fighting Silence'. Nor did I ever think it possible for Aly Martinez to top that book. I was wrong! 'Fighting Solitude' was so much better than I could have anticipated. I floved this. What is beyond good? That is what 'Fighting Solitude' is!

This third book bring us the story of Quarry, the younger Page brother. After him and Liv, her best-friend from childhood grow apart, life puts them back together again, only to throw them a curveball once more.
They try to keep their feelings hide, afraid they shouldn’t be there, but when Quarry decides it’s enough, he’s decided to break through Liv’s defenses.
And fight he’s something he’s used to do.

I'm sure that everyone who has read the first part could not wait to know Q's story. We know him already in the first book, when he is only 6 years old. And it's amazing to be able to look how from the sweet kid he grew up in quite a powerful man, all the way to adulthood. We all loved him from the very first pages of this series and that love only grows.

I gotta figure out a way to put my emotions into words....but to summarize...

Aly Martinez and the Page brothers own my heart and soul. Quarry's book was my favorite of the series, my favorite of Aly's that I've read to date and so far my favorite book of 2016.

Phenomenal writing. Fantastic banter with a dose of humor. Melt your kindle sex. Oodles of emotion. Immeasurable amounts of love.

I can't believe I will end up loving this book, even with the 'dead former lover.'

Before I start, I was feeling reserve about Quarry's story and my expectation was pretty low. If this is by any other other author, I wouldn't be bother by it. I'm allergic towards romance that include a former lover, dead or alive. However, since this is Aly Martinez we're talking about and I love love this series, I decided to give her the benefit of the doubt.
