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.
Review by Christine:
Thrive by Aly Martinez is an emotional tale with all the “feels” you look for in a second chance at love story. This is the second installment in Aly’s Guardian Protection series and it’s so different from Singe but ties in perfectly.
Jeremy Lark hasn’t seen or heard from Mira York in 17 years when he lost everything with a single choice she made. Mira York has had a rough life because of a choice she made and has been trying to get out of her choices ever since and with one phone call everything gets turned upside down.
I loved how everything about this story wasn’t perfect. Mira didn’t listen to Lark. Lark showed his frustration with Mira. Both of these characters are fighting emotions that are being brought to the surface from years ago. So much has changed in each others lives but their connection is undeniable. 4.5 Stars for Thrive by Aly Martinez

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.
