Blog Tour: The Brightest Sunset by Aly Martinez

Ok ladies, now it's time to share my thoughts about this absolutely amazing book!

The Brightest Sunset (The Darkest Sunrise Duet, #2)

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.”


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.    

OMG, this was the perfect ending to this awesome duet!

The first book left us with a huge cliffhanger, and in The Brightest Sunset we pick up from where we left The Darkest Sunrise.
It was a rollercoaster, up and downs, but I loved every moment of it.

Some moments were really heartbreaking, so much raw emotions pouring from the pages. My heart broke in million pieces in the first half of the book, feeling so much for Porter, for what he had to endure and suffer.
Brady was a piece of shit, let me tell you. I understood his jealousy, but I hated him so much for his behaviour toward Charlotte and Porter.

Charlotte was a trooper, so strong, and maybe the only one with a clear mind about what was happening, without prejudice obfuscating it.
I loved how she trusted Porter and her feelings, how she didn't let Brady, Tom or her mother change her mind about him. This made me believe in her true sentiments for him, and as in the first book, I rooted for Charlotte and Porter every single minute.

Travis was such a strong little guy.. One of the reasons why I hated Brady so much is that he made things difficult also for Travis. This little child is sick, and he is forced to leave his safe harbour to go live with strangers. I wouldn't have wanted to be in him, and I can't imagine what he might have felt during the first weeks of his new life.

As the previous book did, also The Brightest Sunset made me feel, feel and feel. The writing style was outstanding, I was left speechless by some sentences such they were so out of this word amazing.
And I agreed with how things went, I especially admired Porter when he was talking with Brady. He was reasonable, open to compromise, and only wanted the best for Travis.

I'm sorry this review is full of names, names and names, but I feel like I got to know every character during these two books, as if they were my friends and I was sharing with them this difficult period.

Sooo, yeah, absolutely read this book, you wont regret it!
