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.

"Sometimes you have to let go of the life you planned in order to live the one you're given".
What an absolutely beautiful, heartbreaking and heartwarming story.
RELEASE is so original, I was captivated by Thea and Ramsey's journey.
Twelve years, eight months, three weeks, four days and thirty-seven minutes. That was how long he'd been gone.
It all started when eleven year old Ramsey and his younger sister Nora moved in just doors down from Thea after being evicted from their home. On the day Thea met Ramsey both of them were instantly connected by grief, they became one half of a whole even if they didn't realise the significance of their meeting at the time and the events that would follow.
Thea and I were two of a kind. Lost, broken. Forgotten. Stuck.
RELEASE goes from past to present, from the childhood years to teenage years and what lead up-to the event of Ramsey being behind bars in the present, the day he is released.
History repeats itself when Ramsey keeps pushing Thea away like she did to him all those years ago as a girl when she was angry and filled with grief over the death of her mother but Thea remembers how Ramsey's persistence and kindness won her over and her determination to make her hers again doesn't let her give up on him.
He was my first boyfriend. My first kiss. My first love. He was my first everything.
Thea is in love with the only boy now a man she has ever and will ever love and she has been counting down the days to his release from prison even though he would not contact her or write back to any of his letters except one that said "MOVE ON"
It was beautiful, heartbreaking, the twists and turns surprising. Two halves of one whole, the way it was always supposed to be.
Release is coming of age, full length romance, standalone novel by Aly Martinez. Spoken in 'Dual Perspectives.' and if you want to start your 2020 reading off on a high, I would highly recommend you start with this moving, captivating and emotional story, beautifully written by Aly Martinez.
