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.”

I have no more tears to shed! Aly Martinez has stolen them all with her impeccable writing and unforgettable characters in the first book in her EPIC new duet, THE DARKEST SUNRISE!

Aly Martinez AMAZES me with every single story she puts out into the world! She sure knows how to bring this romance reader to her knees! This is a romance of EPIC PROPORTIONS people! Get ready for something special…something incredible…something absolutely heartbreaking. Get ready for a love story you will COMPLETELY LOSE YOURSELF in. Get ready for GREATNESS!

“I’d never even had her, yet when she finally stepped out of my arms, I knew I’d lost her all the same.”

Aly Martinez holds the GOLD MEDAL on getting the most emotional response out of me. The depth of the emotions that run through each and every word just STUNS the hell out of me. These two broken souls come together as one, if only for a brief moment in time, and yet, they feel like they have ALWAYS carried a piece of the other. It’s beautifully dynamic, emotionally exhausting, and as close to a romantic masterpiece as you could get. I say this with every Aly Martinez book that releases, but she has OUTDONE even herself with the beginning of her DARKEST SUNRISE DUET. She surpasses expectations, raises to new heights, and her brilliance shines through with every word that is written. Each word digs deep into my soul, until the only thing I can think of is this book and these unique and beautiful characters. 

In romantic duets, there is no doubt that one craves the second book almost instantly, but with this duet, there is something more. There’s a desperation that only fellow romance junkies can relate to.  Whether you are a die-hard fan of Ms. Martinez (just like me!) or you are experiencing her brilliance for the first time, I can guarantee you will become completely LOST in her words. You will never want to leave the emotional upheaval that will completely surround you, threatening to consume you. If you don’t experience a book hangover to end all book hangovers after you read this book, you are doing something VERY wrong.

THE BRIGHTEST SUNSET (The Darkest Sunrise Duet, #2) Coming July 27th

Sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never harm me.


Words destroyed me.

“I’m sorry. She didn’t make it.”

“Daddy, he can’t breathe!”

“There’s nothing more we can do for your son.”

Sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never harm me.


Those syllables and letters became my executioner. I told myself that, if I didn’t acknowledge the pain and the fear, they would have no power over me. But, as the years passed, the hate and the anger left behind began to control me.

Two words—that was all it took to plunge my life into darkness.

“He’s gone.”

In the end, it was four soft, silky words that gave me hope of another sunrise.

“Hi. I’m Charlotte Mills.”
