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.”

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.

The Darkest Sunrise is an amazing read filled with emotion and laced with steam. I can't say much but I can say this; you will be consumed by the story of Porter and Charlotte. You will laugh with them and cry with them. You will root for them through ups and downs and you will cheer when their walls come crumbling down. You will fall in love with everything about this book.

I was so absorbed by this book that I couldn't put it down. It's real, honest and so, so good. There are twists and turns and a definite WTF? moment. I fell in love with Porter and was in awe of his patience and understanding. He and Charlotte are fighting demons that threaten to bring them to their knees but they are fighting to live and love.

It's hard to talk about this book without giving too much away. I don't want to do that. I want to preserve your experience so that you can enjoy every page as much as I did. This book is so well written that you will forget the world around you. This is book 1 of a duet, so we will have to wait to find out how the story ends for Porter and Charlotte.
