Amie's Review of The Brightest Sunset by Aly Martinez

The conclusion of this new, highly emotional must-read duet by Aly Martinez is LIVE! 


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.”


I knew this part of the duet would have to be EPIC - with the way book 1 ended I was so nervous and excited to see how it would all tie together. Needless to say it lived up to my desires and then some !!  We get a glimpse into Porter's past first hand and then we jump right into where we left off. The absolute most amazing yet horrifying thing has just happened and Porter and Charlotte's lives will be once again changed forever. I wasn't surprised with Charlotte's hesitation and confusion at first. We all knew Porter was blindsided yet how did she really know for sure that he had no clue. I was very shocked though with Tom and especially Brady's behavior. After being with Charlotte and feeling her pain in book 1 this was amazing for her and so wonderful to see unfold yet of course now the pain Porter was feeling made it a double edged sword. How could this possibly work out to make everyone happy ?? Travis is such an amazing boy yet I cannot imagine the struggle he went through you could really feel his emotion and despite his actions at times all you could want for him was the best. There were quite a few twists and WOW moments in here that still had me on the edge of my seat. Solutions did not come quickly or easily but I enjoyed watching Charlotte get to know Travis and his sister and of course to get that super hot chemistry with Charlotte and Porter !!

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.
