The Darkest Sunrise by Aly Martinez Review


5 Smooches!

Sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never harm me.
Whoever coined that phrase is a bald-faced liar. Words are often the sharpest weapon of all, triggering some of the most powerful emotions a human can experience.
“You’re pregnant.”
“It’s a boy.”
“Your son needs a heart transplant.”
Sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never harm me.
Syllables and letters may not be tangible, but they can still destroy your entire life faster than a bullet from a gun.
Two words—that was all it took to extinguish the sun from my sky.
“He’s gone.”
For ten years, the darkness consumed me.
In the end, it was four deep, gravelly words that gave me hope of another sunrise.
“Hi. I’m Porter Reese.”



This book!  This freaking book that made me swoon.  Made me cry like a baby.  Broke my dang heart.  Nearly obliterated me.  But all the while it lifted me up.  Made me laugh.  The amount of emotions I went through reading this book was just insane.

I laughed through my tears.  I cried through my smiles.  Porter Reese stole my heart with his sweet nature and over the top hand holding.  That same heart broke for Charlotte Mills, all that she lost and the darkness that holds her captive.  And through all of this, I rooted for this couple that seemed doomed from the start.  Because the author had me so incredibly invested in them and their happiness–their love!

Sometimes a favorite author really surprises you and even exceeds your wildest expectations of them. You think you’ve read Aly Martinez?  Well, you ain’t seen nothing yet!  The Darkest Sunrise is pure gold, and the best yet from Aly Martinez!
