Across The Horizon by Aly Martinez is a standalone romance told in the same universe as her Darkest Sunrise duet. This book can be read before or after reading the duet and this book contains zero spoilers for the intricate plot contained in that duet. That being said, I absolutely LOVED hearing about Tanner and Rita and still seeing just a little bit of Porter and Charlotte from the other side of the story. Well-paced and well-written, this book was a little angsty, a lot sweet, a little sexy and very uplifting to read. I loved how laid back Tanner was while also being a little bit manic and a little bit of a maniac. His interactions with his brother, Porter, their ninja warrior race course built to settle disputes between them, his exuberant chase of the Rita and unwillingness to let her overthink things between them. Everything about this story was wonderful. Enjoy!
