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.”

Tera’s 5 Blush Review

Aly Martinez can write a mean duet. I absolutely loved Retrieval and Transfer so when I saw that The Darkest Sunrise/The Brightest Sunset Duet was coming, I jumped… RAN to the opportunity to read it.

The Darkest Sunrise opens with heartache and suspense. It immediately captivated me and I could not put it down.

“…when your entire world was pitch-black, even the tiniest flicker looked like a lighthouse.”

Charlotte and Porter are both broken, living in the darkness that seems to comfort them. When their two worlds collide, the chemistry is off the charts and the darkness becomes a little brighter. The life that Porter breathed into Charlotte was so beautifully written. The pain was so beautifully written. But with this life came an unexpected twist. A twist that I did figure out fairly early, but I enjoyed the book nonetheless.

“But sometimes, when the overwhelmingly weight of gravity had you pinned to the Earth, two hours of simple conversation with no pressure to pretend was the only reprieve people like us were ever going to get.” 

I can’t wait to see where Aly takes The Brightest Sunset. I want to see the slow burn that is the relationship between Porter and Charlotte and see lies and truths revealed as their connection is found to be much deeper than even they knew. This was an easy 5 star to give and very well-deserved.

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.
