Review: The Brightest Sunset by Aly Martinez

34374740Sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never harm me.
Bullshit.
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.
Lies.
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.”

5+ Stars!

The Brightest Sunset is breathtakingly beautiful! I don’t even know how I went so long in between books but if you have yet to discover this series you need to immediately read them.

Be warned, it is going to be an emotional rollercoaster but one that comes with such a beautiful view. Aly Martinez your words dug so deep into my heart and soul that they will forever stay with me. I cried, I laughed and I had so much hope while reading this story. I found myself holding my breath many times, hoping for Porter & Charlotte.

They each had been through so much in life, that all I wanted was for them to find their light, to escape the darkness. && The Brightest Sunset was so much more than just finding the light, but about how to live through the darkness. To live a life that was both light and darkness. One cannot exist without the other, and these characters certainly allow us to see that. Now remember this is going to be a rollercoaster of a book, so be prepared to have your emotions all over the place. There are times where you want to close the book and take a moment to compose yourself, but then find that you just can’t. You need to push through and read, you need to know what is going to happen next.

I was so scared for a moment, and remember just setting my book into my lap attempting to compose myself. My husband thought I was insane, reminding me that it was just a book. Yes, he went there and I gasped at him. I however didn’t stop reading though, I picked it back up and turned page after page. Goodness was I happy I did.

I don’t want to spoil any of this book for you, so believe me when I say you need this story in your life!!! It might wreck you along the way, but in the best of ways.
