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.


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.”

So I am a bit slow when it came to discovering Aly – I only started reading her books this year, but she is quickly becoming one of my go-to authors. And this book just adds to the reasons why she is amazing.

The Darkest Sunrise is the book one of duet and I am so glad that I do not have to wait too long for the second book to release to read the ending of this heart wrenching story. I knew that I would be getting into an emotional read, but I had no idea how much my heart would hurt. Aly has this way with her writing that puts you right there in the heat of everything; you feel as though you are living the characters’ lives.

“No questions. No judgments. No faking it.”

Charlotte is broken – so broken that she can’t be fixed; there’s nothing left of her to repair. Until she meets Porter.

Porter himself has some broken pieces but he’s been able to find the silver lining in life. He’s been able to fix a part of himself but he still understands what it like to have your heart torn apart. I love Porter’s tenacity and his unstoppable personality. He’s one a kind.

Both Porter and Charlotte’s stories are crippling and gut wrenching. I can’t imagine ever being in their shoes. And yes, I am going to make you read what they’ve both gone through because to give any parts of this story away, will take away from the whole story. I did have a few ideas about the cliff hanger and one of them was it, I was still left with a gaping hole in my chest because of how well Aly wrote not only the ending, but this book

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.
