Blog Tour: The Brightest Sunset

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.”

4.5 Stars!
Review by Jen Hagen

This was a wonderful sequel filled with several realistic moments that had my soul breaking.  Charlotte is a very strong woman and Porter is a man we could all adore. 

Porter and Charlotte have both found the deepest recess of the earth, fought their way back, but still occasionally fall into the darkness when life becomes too much.   Left alone in their thoughts the world becomes black, but together they find the light.  They understand the darkness of each other; but what happens when the darkness consuming them is the indirect result of the other??  It’s a whirlwind of emotions for them.  This is where the strength of their love will come to test.  Questions and accusations will devour their decision.  They will need to defend themselves to everybody.

“He’s making me happy.  He’s making me laugh. And, when I’m crying, he makes me feel safe.  He makes me feel loved.  He’s reminding me that the world is full of light even when you can’t see it.”

Porter is hurting just as much as Charlotte.  He has lost love before, and he is not about to lose it again.  He fights for those he loves, and he fights with his whole heart.   But this time it’s not just about the woman he loves that he will lose; he is fighting for his entire universe. He just needs the biggest supporter on his side to change the direction of the fight.  It’s a very controversial supporter, but Charlotte is the only chance he has at keeping everything he holds close intact.

“It’s always darkest before dawn, Porter.  We just have to wait a little while longer.”

Porter and Charlotte are perfect together.  They understand the heartaches and the darkness that surround one another.  There is nobody more perfect together than they are.  They have each fought to see the light and with each other the light never goes out.  They need each other…but can their love for one another erase emotional pain of the past?

“We can do this, Porter.  And we will do this – because there is no other choice.”

This was a wonderful and unique storyline.  Charlotte was placed in a tough situation.  She was very contemplative with her decision and did the right thing.  Porter was a solid male who showed his vulnerability to make him an even more adored character.  I loved the author’s writing.  She made every word and action performed by the character’s pop out of the page.  

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.
