    Hey Aly Martinez I have read all of your books to date and even though I may be considered a fangirl of yours gushing about how fantastic this story line was I really don t care because this was fantastic.All that s left for me to do is patiently await July 27th But how do you move forward when all you really want is to go back

    There are times I really wish one could sit an author down, tie them up, then demand they hand over the conclusion to their cliffhanger And this here is one mindfuckery of a cliffy I m way too invested in the story of Porter, Charlotte and baby Lucas What happens now

    I would like to preface this by saying that nothing in your life will have prepared you for this book Not one thing Charlotte and Porter come from very different worlds The only thing that connects them is the soul crushing pain they both endure everyday It s evident in their eyes and suddenly two lost souls find their kindred spirit.But grief has a way of tightening it s clutches just when you think it s letting go The story of pain and suffering, of love and acceptance The epic saga of two peo [...]

    Two people alone in the darkness No questions No judgments No faking it I absolutely loved this book Multiple times whilst reading it, tears welled up in my eyes at the beauty of AM s writing, and just imagining being in Charlotte s situation got me really emotional The writing is gripping, demanding that the pages are turned The story is exceptional Without giving too much away, the author makes all characters in this story extremely real Despite the somewhat dark subject matter this is a story [...]

    Wow The chemistry between Charlotte and Porter just jumped off the page They had been simply existing until they met one another and the pieces fell together Their armor was cracked, but not broken I absolutely loved their witty banter This is one of those couples that you just KNOW are meant for one another No Not like that I m talking about one where you d spend the rest of your night touching your bruised lips, and I d spend the rest of mine desperately trying to memorize the way you tasted T [...]

    2.5 Another book where I just don t seem to understand the hype.I don t want to get into too many details about the plot because if people do decide to read this, I don t want to spoil anything I read a few reviews after I finished this book and most reviews seem to have the same idea it s best to go into this story blind While this had some well written and very emotional parts, I didn t connect with it the way other reviewers seem to have I didn t sob and my heart did not pound Maybe because I [...]

    This was an emotional trip that stripped me bare, and left me feeling utterly heartbroken I knew going into this that it wasn t going to be an easy read but I was surprised at how much I felt towards these characters The things they went through, the all consuming hurt and grief and trying to put one foot in front of the other, was a sight to see Sometimes we as human beings don t know just how much power we have over our everyday lives We can choose to make it better or we can just sit there in [...]

    4 StarsOverall Opinion I loved their dialogue They were witty and it had me smiling so big at my iPad like a loon I did get a little tired of the darkness references, but that could very well be my grumpiness popping out I also guessed the big twist pretty much at the beginning of the book, so I wasn t all that shocked with the cliffybut I am eager to see how this ends Hopefully I get a HEA for them Brief Summary of the Storyline This is Charlotte and Porter s story I m going to keep this brief [...]

    THIS BOOK STUNNING MASTERPIECE RAW UNPUTDOWNABLEYou should know by now that I DO NOT give out 5 star reviews willy nilly Not even to my favorite authors My 5 star reviews have to earn a spot on the keeper shelf Either because I want to re read them again OR because they are so unique and so masterfully crafted that they dig deep into my heart and STAY The Darkest Sunrise did just that.First, I should mention that I have not read a novel this well crafted in a long time Reading The Darkest Sunris [...]

    5 STARS If I may boldly say, this is Aly Martinez at her best Phenomenal in her storytelling, The Darkest Sunrise is a raw and highly emotive portrayal of two strangers bound together by their grief.In many ways it reminded me of the poem Soul meets soul on lovers lips by Percy Bysshe Shelley Granted it s the unstemmed pain which flows though them that is the source of the recognition they share, but in this pain is the beginning of an unlikely but pure and honest relationship that blossoms It s [...]

    2.75 stars This is how I feel writing this review, because seriously EVERYONE seemed to love this one, but for me it fell flat I didn t enjoy the insta love or insta attraction I did appreciate that they saw the darkness in one another and I wish the story had focused on that Especially given the fact that this is a duet, I didn t think it was necessary to have their physical relationship develop so quickly.I also felt that it shoved Travis s Porter s son medical problems to the background view [...]

    ALL THE STARS O M F ing G.This was such an awesome book, I didn t want it to end and thank goodness this was just the beginning of Porter and Charlotte s journey I ve only just finished reading this heart stomping story so trying to gather my thoughts and just deal.Charlotte and Porter have their own individual stories in this book and are dealing with their own personal struggles but when they meet for the first time something feels right, they feel lighter Porter recognises the darkness in Cha [...]

    Aly Martinez is one of very few authors who s books make my TBR before the blurb is even written I just know I can count on her to write a book that I will be so emotionally invested in that from the moment I pick it up until the second I put it down I am nowhere but in that book The only issue I have is that I always feel the need to wait until I am in a reasonable stable head space for me this is a hard task with very little else on my calendar so I can read the book with only minimal mutterin [...]

    3.5 3.75 starsI liked the story, but struggled a bit with the writing Second half of the book was much better.Give me action and WORDS I guessed the twist in the 1st chapter from his POV, when they told me he had a son Liked the heroine I didn t support her every decision, but I don t dare to judge a woman, who lost her child.Sweet hero I adored how he cared for his kids swoon His brother her BFF I hope they stay together or will they get their own book s I didn t like that they made his dead ex [...]
