Purchase the ebook on Amazon (Kindle Unlimited)
Technically, you aren’t supposed to fall in love with your best friend’s girl.
When I was nineteen years old, I was faced with a choice that changed my life.
Keep the safety of what I already knew or risk losing everything with the young, hotheaded soldier who stole my heart.
I chose the wrong man, and for seventeen years, I paid in tears, blood, and shattered dreams for that decision.
Now, there’s a man in my house, holding a gun to my head on the order of my ex-husband—given from his prison cell.
That hotheaded soldier I was too afraid to choose? He’s now a six-foot-three wall of muscle who works at the country’s most premier bodyguard agency. I’ve always wanted him, but now, I’ve never needed him more.
It’s the call I’m terrified to make.
I’m sure he still hates me… Even though I’ve never stopped loving him.

I can’t say it enough…..Aly Martinez is a brilliant writer. I will never get sick of reading her stories. I love that everytime I read one of her books I can’t help feeling in awe of her when I’m done. Each new book is a unique story with a captivating storyline and lovable characters. Thrive is no exception to this.
Thrive is the second book in her Guardian Protection Series and can be read as a standalone. Their interconnected characters, so you will see some of the same people in this story that you saw in Singe (Book 1) but the storylines are completely different and nothing is spoiled if they are read out of order.
This story is an enemies to lovers second chance romance that is told in Dual POV. Now I’m sure some might be worried after reading the blurb that this story might have a love triangle to it….you can relax and go into this story knowing that it doesn’t have a love triangle in the normal sense of the meaning. This story takes place 17 years after the love triangle. And that is all I am saying about the storyline. This is a story that needs to unfold by itself for each reader.
What I love the most about Aly’s books and this series in particular is you never know what is going to happen before it happens. She throws so many curve balls that these stories will keep you guessing until the very end when everything is revealed. Her writing style is smooth and effortless and you can’t help getting sucked in as soon as you pick up the book. Make sure you have plenty of time to spare when you choose to read her books, because you won’t want to put them down. Her storylines are intense, intriguing, suspenseful and still have to right amount of romance and sexy times. It’s the perfect 5 star combination and truly works for her!!!
I know my review really never does her books justice, but I really can’t express in words how fantastic her books really are. They are a MUST READ!!!! This is definitely a book that will be making my Best of 2018 List!!! Make sure you 1-click this once it’s released, you won’t be sorry!!!!

Originally from Savannah, Georgia, USA Today bestselling author Aly Martinez now lives in South Carolina with her four young children.
Never one to take herself too seriously, she enjoys cheap wine, mystery leggings, and baked feta. It should be known, however, that she hates pizza and ice cream, almost as much as writing her bio in the third person.
She passes what little free time she has reading anything and everything she can get her hands on, preferably with a super-sized tumbler of wine by her side.
