The Darkest Sunrise duet is hands down one of the most unforgettable storylines I've ever read. From start to finish, this story clawed its way under my skin and into my heart and never let go. Aly Martinez takes her reader through such a roller coaster of emotions on this incredible journey, through darkness and light, through hope and despair, through love and heartache, and every bit of it was a relentless barrage of feels that I never wanted to end. It's incredible. There's no other way to describe it. It's just incredible.
This second part of the duet picks up exactly where the first left us, with these characters caught up in an intense web of unbelievably horrific circumstances. I thought the first book was turbulent and heartbreaking but what these character have to sort through in this follow up might actually be even worse. It's impossible. It all just feels so impossible, and messy, and beautiful all at once. The silver linings don't feel so shiny, it's hard to find joy in the good when the darkness is so constantly present. But there is joy that peaks through the darkness, it's just a profoundly complicated road through it all. Martinez crafts such a complex web of emotion in this sequel. The light is always edged in the dark, the good always peppered with the truth of the past, and the future, no matter how hopeful it COULD be, still feels difficult and impossible and tarnished. The Brightest Sunset is perfect and ugly and beautifully heart wrenching and it evolves in just the right manner, ensuring the reader feels every nuance of pleasure pain along the way.
This series resonated with me as a mother and as a romantic. It's powerful and heavy and you can't read it without coming away feeling deeply effected by all these characters traverse. The Brightest Sunset is as much about acceptance and grief and hope and healing as it is about love and passion and unrelenting attraction. It's about the powerful bonds of family, it's about unconditional love. It's gritty and raw at times, sweet and sexy and funny at others. It's all these ugly and beautiful things woven together in this gripping, meaty story, a brilliant tapestry threaded with undeniable love and unwavering hope. It's a phenomenal story, one that I hope everyone reads. It has left me both speechless and with the desperate need to talk about it with everyone. It's an absolute MUST READ duet, a top favorite of the year, and a story that I'll never, ever forget.
*** 2017 Favorite ***
After reading The Darkest Sunrise by Aly Martinez I was counting down the days for the sequel, The Brightest Sunset to release. I can honestly say I haven't been this consumed by a story in quite a while. I devoured The Darkest Sunset the moment this book downloaded on my tablet. I thought the first book was an emotional rollercoaster but the second book was an emotional explosion where every character was affected by the monumental life changing revelations. Once the revelations tore them apart, trying to rebuild new lives is literally impossible without hurting others more in the process. There were no right or wrong answers. There were no villains or heroes. Just ordinary people trying to hang onto their family as they know it. In the middle of all the chaos is an innocent and seriously ill child trying to survive the devastation of it all.
Dr. Charlotte Mills, a respected Pulmonary specialist in the Atlanta area, lost her six month old baby when he was abducted in plain daylight. She has lived with the guilt for ten years hoping that her baby somehow survived the ordeal. The odds were against his survival because of a defective heart condition. She has spent the last ten years buried in her grief, shut off emotionally from the world, and dedicating her life to her work. When she met Porter Reese she found a man who understood her darkness and was willing to share her pain. He understood the pain because he was a widower and single father trying to survive his own painful world.
Porter Reese almost lost his children when he lost his wife. He shoved his grief aside to make sure he gave his children a stable, loving home environment. His eleven year old son's health has been declining and he needs the best doctors to treat him. When he sought out Dr. Mills he never imagined meeting a woman who touches a different part of his soul. He's met a woman who understands his pain and is willing to share the darkness with him.
Charlotte and Porter never expected to find light in the darkness. They never expected to find unconditional love in their dark painful world. This dark world doesn't want to let them go and throws another horrific, painful situation that will ultimately destroy their lives.
Their lives are falling apart and their worlds are colliding. They are plunged into a world of pain that breaks their trust in one another. The overwhelming suspicion and broken trust are not the only things motivating their actions. Both are willing to sacrifice everything in their lives to hang onto what is rightfully theirs. Finding middle ground and compromising solutions seems impossible because they are not the only people making those decisions. Their intentions are the same but all the viable solutions are painful. It is going to take a miracle to put everybody's lives back together and forge a new future.
Aly Martinez did a remarkable job with this story. She clearly thought out this plot from every physical and emotional angle. Every character had valid reactions and emotions in every part of this story. I could sympathize with them all. Their story touched my soul and will stay close to my heart long after the book is closed.
The Brightest Sunset Duet by Aly Martinez is my absolute favorite 2017 books.
This duet is perfection is in each word. Hooked on every word. Oh Porter and Charlotte these two, seriously these two are amazing individuals. What they through is not easy it was all haywire for a while. Yes there will annoying secondary characters and that added to the tension. I admire Charlotte and her tenacity, strength and commitment. Porter this guy is solid and resilient, his love is fierce. The way he loves those kids is powerful. Despite the darkness that surrounded them they found a way to find the light and step in to that together. They were much bigger people that with all the pain they were made stronger.
As this story unfolding with each turn and moment you are right there along. My heart was going every which way, up and down. I can't say enough good things. My heart went out for them and was with everyone of them through it all. It's also well balanced with the light humor in between the heavy. Just shows love can grow in the hardest times. Heart pounding, heart wrenching events and highly emotional story yet beautiful story.
Aly Martinez you are a master of duets, one your best yet. This is an extraordinary and unique story layered with love, family, hope and forgiveness. These characters came a long way to finally find their way. The kind of story that lingers. Do not pass go. Read The Darkest Sunrise it's out and when this conclusion releases drop everything read that. You won't regret it. Must read.
