's review

it was amazing

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 break me, but I wanted it just the same.

I had been a fighter from the day I’d taken my fist breath on earth.

I wasn’t sure how Aly was going to pull this story off, I had no doubt she could, but how? The story is told in dual point of view and begins in the past. Quarry and Liv, two kids from completely different worlds, meet at On the Ropes. Liv is the daughter of Slate’s head of security. She lives in Chicago with her affluent family. Quarry is at the gym, because of his brother and is participating in the youth program.

Quarry and Liv may come from different places and backgrounds, but they have a lot in common. They are both fighters. They are strong, loving, protective and giving. Liv and Quarry’s friendship grows throughout the years, but there are a lot of growing pains. Though we didn't really see it at the time, Liv was around through so many heartaches the brothers endured. Now we get to see their reactions and consequences from things that happened in Fighting Silence and Fighting Shadows. Then with Quarry and Liv losing Mia, they have so many things to overcome not just romantically, but in life.

This story is so unique in the fact that Liv and Q know each other. They are best friends and have no real secrets. They don’t have to get to know each other, but they do have to let go of the past and move forward. These two are by far my favorite couple. I don’t know if it’s the fact that I have always been the guy’s best friend or if it’s because I just love Q, regardless I could feel their love.

These two are completely sure in their love and love without condition. Their story is one of heart ache, tragedy, but they are fighters and refuse to give in.

I am so impressed with Aly, this series has been epic and I am going to truly miss these characters. I am so attached that while reading the epilogue I was tearing up. It’s hard to say goodbye to everyone, especially when you can see and feel all they endured. You see how crazy I sound right now…I don’t even blame myself, it’s all Aly. Because when you read this series you will get it, these characters feel real.

I hadn’t won that fight alone. I wouldn’t have even made it to the fight without them.

Obviously I recommend this book, I want to shout it from the rough top to read this book. BUT I also want to shout from the rough top that you should read them all.
