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.”

My thoughts: 

It's so hard to discuss this in depth without being spoilery so I'm not going to try. Just prepare to cry. A LOT. I sort of expected this, so I buffered reading The Brightest Sunset between a couple of lighthearted reads and I'm glad I did, because reading it left me emotionally exhausted. I will say, I didn't like it as much as The Darkest Sunset. Between Charlotte, Porter, Brady, and... At times I wanted throttle them and other times I wanted to comfort them. This duet has been one of the most unique and harrowing reads that I've read this year, in the best possible way. Aly Martinez has forced her way on to my must read author list but if her other books pack such an emotional punch, I may have to take a break before going in.  I give The Brightest Sunset 4.5 out of 5 wine glasses.

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.
