5 Star Review by Ashley
Oh my heart! I feel like I say that with every Aly Martinez book but this one made my chest physically ache. The Darkest Sunrise started with hope and promise and then on the next page my heart was just ripped plum out out of my chest.
Charlotte, I just wanted to wrap her in my arms and hug her. I could say I wanted to take her pain away but that just isn't possible. Nothing could heal her heart. Take away the darkness that was her world. Until Porter Reese burnt his way into her world.
I loved how adorably awkward these two were. With dry senses of humor and a world of hurt in their past, they got each other. They accepted and didn't try to change the darkness that lived in their souls. No judgements. No excuses. It was a perfect plan, until it wasn't. Until they wanted the light.
With every page read, every tear shed, every brick Charlotte and Porter tore down, my heart, and theirs began to heal. And then the fragile ground they had built went sliding right out form under them. HOLY MOLY! I thought I had this one pegged but this is Aly Martinez I'm talking about. I should've known to expect the unexpected. I absolutely can not wait to see what is in store for Porter and Charlotte in the finale of this duet! I NEED it...like yesterday!
5 Star Review by Lorena
One of the most emotional books I've read this year!
This book had it all. Emotions, love, regret, sadness, happiness. I mean, you name all the emotions you can and you had them all in this book.
You get two broken people in this story. They are broken in different ways but broken nonetheless.
Trying to move forward is hard especially when you live with guilt and remorse and constantly blaming yourself for what happened in your life.
Charlotte and Porter both are broken souls. They didn't think they could move forward from their haunting pasts but when they both come across each other, it seems like they're destined to fix each other one way or another.
This was a very well written story that will leave you emotionally stressed and craving more.
I can't wait to finish reading and finding out the conclusion to this story.
This sure was an epic read!
If I could give this 10 stars then 10 stars it would get
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.
