Oh my god, this was a five star from me! There was nothing I didn't like, it was perfect!!
When Eliza Reynolds and Till Page are thirteen they stumble across each other in a abandoned apartment. They are both escaping s***ty parents, Eliza's don't even notice that she's missing half the time and Till's mum would much prefer to be getting her nails done than worry about her 3 sons.
This day is the start of a beautiful friendship, but it's a secret one and although they go to the same school, Till does not speak to or acknowledge Eliza outside of their safe haven.
As they grow older they only get closer, while Eliza is working hard to get to college to make a life for herself and away from her parents, Till is playing football and working 2 jobs to help take care of his 2 younger brothers and keep a roof above all their heads.
When Till comes across an after school program at newly opened On The Ropes Gym he jumps at the chance to join up, especially when he sees that it is run by none other than Slate "The Silent Storm" Andrews.
When Eliza graduates school and Till fails to make the grade, he is once again reminded that he will never be good enough for her. To him she is his fantasy life that he will never be able to turn into reality. Working minimum wage with no future ahead of him, he knows that he has to let her go off to college with a chance at more but before he leaves he wants to claim her as his just one time.
Just when Eliza is starting to heal from a broken heart, she once again finds herself in Till's life but she knows she has to force his hand otherwise she will break completely.Read more ›
What's it all about?
This is the first book in the 'on the rope' series and it sets the stage for the Page brothers to make their debut into our reading hearts. Till page is the eldest of the three brothers and to call him a born survivor is an understatement. These brothers face hardship and difficulties and with a heart breaking past and tragic circumstances following their every move they have to fight hard to find their happiness. This book takes the reader on the unmistakable journey of finding hope and love. Aly Martinez takes the tried and tested method of a friends to lovers theme but there's nothing unoriginal here. Follow the story of Till Page and the love of his life and best friend Eliza Reynolds and hold on to your seats for a love story that is memorable to say the least.
What did I love?
Those who know me will be able to tell you that my favourite of all tropes to read in the romance reading world is the friends to lovers story. I love the angst, the anticipation and the feeling of desperation for the perfect twosome to finally realise that they can't live without falling in love with each other. So it comes with no surprise that I fell hard in love with this story. Aly Martinez takes this trope and makes it her own, it's so much more than friends falling in love. This, my fellow readers is about soul mates finding their match.Read more ›
Eliza and Till found each other one day when they were just thirteen and, from that day, they became great friends, meeting up every single day in a condemned apartment building. Both lived less than ideal lives, especially Till, who had two younger brothers, Flint and Quarry, depending on him.
As the years passed, both grew to love one another but Till was afraid to let go of their fantasy apartment life. He was really scared to lose Eliza as his friend; as his one thing in the world that was right. She was his home.
This was such a fantastic, heartfelt, and emotional story! Eliza and Till are two worthy characters. Both had grit, integrity, and a strength to survive in the face of adversity…as long as they had each other. Till is hugely noble, wanting Eliza to have a better life, and wanting to provide for his brothers. He works like a dog to provide a roof over their heads and food on the table, whilst training to be boxer, at the same time. Eliza is just the same and pushes Till to get real and have a proper relationship with her. She is nurturing, caring and loyal.
I can’t recommend this novel enough! It was full of fear, excitement, desperation, and love. The love between Eliza and Till is unchanging, solid, and worth fighting for. It’s forever.
