Synopsis:

Sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never harm me.

Whoever coined that phrase is a bald-faced liar. Words are often the sharpest weapon of all, triggering some of the most powerful emotions a human can experience.

“You’re pregnant.”

“It’s a boy.”

“Your son needs a heart transplant.”

Sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never harm me.

Lies.

Syllables and letters may not be tangible, but they can still destroy your entire life faster than a bullet from a gun.

Two words—that was all it took to extinguish the sun from my sky.

“He’s gone.”

For ten years, the darkness consumed me.

In the end, it was four deep, gravelly words that gave me hope of another sunrise.

“Hi. I’m Porter Reese.”

Review

Holy mother of God of cliffhangers! If you don’t like cliffhangers, do not read this book until the second one comes out. Then when it does buy both because you are going to read them both in one sitting.

This book is an intricate web of lies, deceit, and a plot for a Lifetime movie waiting to happen. Now there are parts that I predicted (and you might too) but it definitely did not deter from the story. I loved reading the different darknesses that Porter and Charlotte have to go through to try Holy mother of God of cliffhangers! If you don’t like cliffhangers, do not read this book until the second one comes out. Then when it does buy both because you are going to read them both in one sitting.

This book is an intricate web of lies, deceit, and a plot for a Lifetime movie waiting to happen. Now there are parts that I predicted (and you might too) but it definitely did not deter from the story. I loved reading the different darknesses that Porter and Charlotte have to go through to try and find the light. Porter’s is all kinds of messed up that I almost couldn’t believe it. Charlotte was just at the wrong place at the wrong time and now lives with an empty existence because of it.

The story does focus on the missing child, but there is a very strong romance story here. Charlotte has not lived a day in 10 years. She’s lived in the blackest hole there is and only started to come out when she meets Porter. He makes her laugh, have fun, and remember what it’s like to live. Which makes for some very steamy encounters for them (i.e. Their first time). Literally better then The Notebook.

This duet is similar to The Transfer duet in the format that it’s written. It covers topics that you don’t usually see in romance novels and the mystery side of it keeps you guessing from start to finish. If this is something that Aly Martinez is going to do on a regular basis then count me in because they are addicting. I love the characters and the back and forth that she writes because it feels familiar. Like you could or have had these conversations before.

As I have said it is a cliffhanger, but it’s going to set up for a doozy of a finale so strap in for the rollercoaster ride

Rating: A

AUTHOR INFORMATION:

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.
