Product description

Product Description

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.
Lies.
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 very rarely give out 5 star reviews, but this book really deserves it! I can't wait for the 2nd part.
This story is so real, so moving, it will definitely be in the top 5 books of 2017.
I hate cliff hangers, but I need time to re-read and be ready emotionally for book 2 of this truly moving duet.

Over the course of a year, Charlotte Mills' life had gone through a series of upheavals, each encapsulated in just a few words.

"You're pregnant" - Confusion
"It's a boy" - Joy
"Your son needs a transplant" - Despair
"He's gone" - Darkness

For ten years she lived in that darkness. Offering fake smiles, fake everything to those around her because that's all she had to offer as she finished her medical training and then deliberately immersed herself in her work.

Single father Porter Reese sought her out as the best specialist he could find for his own ailing son, but when they met he found a woman whose darkness mirrored his own.

Don't they say"Misery loves company"?

The Darkest Sunrise was, for me, an intensely emotional read. Aly Martinez paints a thoroughly believable tableau where the ever prevalent darkness is contrasted against highlights filled with vibrant colour as Charlotte and Porter together bring each other to life in ways neither has experienced in years.

Going deeper into the story reveals how the darkness each experiences differs, exposing that what was thought to be darkness was more accurately muted, where the variations in texture and tone are so subtle that they're not readily apparent.

The ongoing tragedies that the two main characters, and those they're close to were living through had me close to tears time and again while the aridly dry humor they share when they choose to sit in their respective darknesses together had me actually laughing out loud.

The writing was such that I couldn't help but experience alongside them every feeling and emotion. Despair, hate, hope, betrayal, love and loss. It wrecked me in the best way.

Told first person from more than just two perspectives this first book in the Darkest Sunrise duet sucked me in completely and likely won't let me go even when I'm done with book two.

I received an ARC of this book and this is my voluntary and honest review. This is the first book I have read from this author and believe me Aly Martinez blew me out of the water with this book. There is no faking how much I loved this book and yes I am going to judge this book, judge it to be the best book I have read so far this year. This story will have every emotion you could ever imagine come crashing to the surface, you will feel heartbroken, tormented, frustrated, gut wrenching sadness, happiness and total confusion. I am not going to give you one piece of this story as this is one that you need to experience for yourself, you need to go in blind feeling every word that this author has poured onto the pages, but I will tell you the story will have you so gripped that you need to clear your schedule because once you start reading this book there is no way you are putting it down. I am now counting the days until part 2 of this duet is available because until then these characters and their story will be occupying and consuming every one of my thoughts.

Beautiful! Heartbreaking! Amusing! Enthralling! A Unique story that I will never forget! Aly Martinez has a way of making us "Feel" through her words and The Darkest Sunrise brings out emotion after emotion in every page. It's a captivating story of two broken people who understand one another like no one else can.
The romance between Porter and Charlotte is sweet and funny despite the emotional turmoil. I did get choked up quite a few times with the heartrending pain that Porter and Charlotte are in but I did laugh quite a few times with the antics between some of the characters in the book and I smiled ALOT at the love developing between Porter and Charlotte.
A must read for anyone who loves a beautifully written story that makes you feel. I can't wait for more.
