Fighting Solitude (On the Ropes #3) by Aly Martinez **Book Tour & Review**
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.
Even though I didn’t deserve her, Liv never stopped believing in me. Never gave up. Never let go. After all, she understood what I’d lost, because she’d lost it too.
Liv was everything to me, but she was never truly mine.
That was going to change.
I lost my first love, but I refused to lose my soulmate.
Now, I’m on the ropes during the toughest battles of my life.
Fighting to be the man she deserves.
Fighting the solitude of our pasts.
Fighting for her.

"I lost my first love, but I refused to lose my soulmate."
I FREAKING LOVE THIS SERIES!!!!
(Please proceed with caution. Fangirling and emotional outburst may occur. )
I don't know how she has done that, but Aly has made me love these brothers and their stories have touched me deep in my heart. I grew to love each one of these characters since the first book, when Q was a little kid, who would follow his older brother out of the building and he would ask him all these questions and he would claim that he loved and wanted to marry Eliza. So freaking cute!!
At the same time, he was a little devil growing up, with cursing to be his most characteristic trait. I mean I loved getting to look at his life since the early stage of that, how everything that happened to him shaped him to be the man he now was. Fighting Silence and Till was my favorite in the series, but now I can't say, because I love Q equally as much and I'm not even kidding, when I say that they both share 1st place and Flint comes after them.
Fighting Solitude is heartbreaking, angsty, but also super hot and swoon worthy!! It's an amazing friends to lovers story, with flashbacks from their childhood and how this friendship progressed with time and how it developed after everything that happened to them. Q was probably the dirtiest brother and gave us some really sexy scenes that I had to fan myself and Liv was one of my favorite heroines in this series. I liked the transition to their relationship and the dialogues were also well written as always.
Liv James had never been just my best friend. No matter what I'd told myself.
Aly has truly the gift to take you with her and makes you enjoy her books, even when there are a few things that should make you worried. You simply cannot not love them. Page brothers will definitely stay with me and their stories will be special and listed as my favorites. The part at the ring with the three of them, just gutted me. I started crying as the emotional shit I am.
I wasn't the only champion in the ring that night. So, with Till on my right and Flint on my left, I lifted all of our fits in victory.
I dare you to give them a chance if you haven't done that already! Preferably, read them in order. Trust me when I say you don't want to miss this experience. Thank you, Aly Martinez for bringing life in this family and making us meet Till, Flint & Quarry. I will never forget those fighters.
