Truth: Penn Walker entered my life like a summer storm—dark, ominous, and filled with thunder.
After witnessing my husband’s murder, I didn’t have much of a heart left to offer a man.
But Penn took it all.
Every jagged shard.
Every broken bit.
Even the dirty and twisted pieces that I wish never existed.
Lie: I didn’t need him to save me.
Lie: I knew exactly who he was.
Lie: Losing him wouldn’t destroy me.
But that’s the thing about lies—you never know who to believe.
4 Star Review by Ashley
I...what? Wow! The Truth About Us left me speechless. Thank goodness Aly Martinez picked this up right where the first part of this duet left off because I had questions. Rest assured that everything got answered. But it was a complicated, twisted and wild road for Cora.
As much as her heart (and mine) were breaking Cora was filled with hope for the future she had always dreamed of. Freedom. Except there was another part of her past that couldn't seem to let her go. Cue the underhanded, completely unexpected and deviously evil plan that put Cora right at the center. Gah! What a mess. I loved that Drew was there to help but things quickly became more than he could handle and Penn had to make his presence know.
Waterworks. What was Cora to do when she learned the whole truth of that night? Of Penn's past. His plan. His hopes for the future. Could she see past their differences? Would she be able to see the truth in all that they had shared?
I can't say too much more but be ready. You won't see half of what happened coming. Aly Martinez kept me on the edge of my seat. The Truth About Us was full of pain and hope and redemption and loss and love. I couldn't put it down. And that ending- just what Penn and Cora deserved and then some.
About the Author
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.
