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.



WOW! What a perfect ending to this series. And while I love the entire series, I must say FIGHTING SOLITUDE is my favorite of all the books and Quarry is my favorite brother. I think I fell in love with Quarry, from the first book, being the youngest Page boy and boldest Page boy to claim Eliza as his...LOL! This kid was truly something else. But now this boy is a MAN and he's been able to persevere in spite of the obstacles thrown at him and the loss he's had to suffer (his parents, his hearing, his, his first love). I couldn't wait to sink my teeth into Quarry's story, because from the beginning, he's made an impression, with his humor and his little potty mouth. I loved that nothing changed. The humor and potty mouth still there, along with a cockiness and volatile temper. I loved the relationship between he and Liv and that she was the only one who could calm and center him. But he would, without a doubt, have no problem with loosing himself, in order to keep her safe. She was his strength, but also his weakness. And she would prove to have his back, literally and figuratively, from the moment they laid eyes on each other. Who could resist a love story like that!!!!! This one delivers. 
I think my favorite moments, are when Quarry and Leo go back and forth and Quarry "respectfully" tells Leo how it really is... Lol! In the end, Leo's reminiscent story reveals a love and mutual respect between the men, that goes as far back as Quarry's childhood. (YOU REALLY HAVE TO READ IT! IT'S
Aly has given these characters to us in such a way that they manage to leave their marks on our hearts. We've seen every character in the On The Ropes Series evolve from their youths and have laughed with them, cried with them, and felt for them. 
This series, ON THE ROPES, and each book in it, couldn't have had a better name, as boxing is a perfect metaphor for what the Page boys, as well as the loves of their lives have had to suffer through. Every obstacle, they'd encounter, they'd conquer, but not without a "fight".
ON THE ROPES is one of favorites.
I am so going to miss this series.
