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.”

~ 5 Words Change Everything Stars ~

“HELP”…..it’s a four letter word that can change your life forever….in many different ways.

The Darkest Sunrise is the beginning for Porter and Charlotte. This is a heartbreaking, not always easy, journey out of the darkness. I can’t and won’t give anything away with this storyline, just know that both Porter and Charlotte are broken souls who need to find their way out to the light.

As always I am left in AWE of Aly Martinez. Her books truly leave me speechless when I am finished reading them. They are so much more than just a romance story. Her words will linger on well after the book is over. The words and feelings this novel invokes will touch you both body and soul. I know I can never do her books justice with my reviews, but I will try to let you know how FANTASTIC this book is.

What I love the most about Aly’s books is just how unique and original that are. When I read a book by Aly Martinez I never feel like I have read a story like it. Her characters are always down to earth and likable and her storylines are always captivating and heart stopping. This book was no different. Each book of hers that I read just get better and better, but if you asked me to pick my favorite I just couldn’t do it!!! I will say that this book hit a little closer to home for me, in the regards that I am a parent and the situation in this story is every parents worst nightmare.

As for Charlotte and Porter, I loved these two characters. Both were extremely broken, but their connection felt real and honest to me. I loved the progression that Aly took these two people. Their love story unraveled just perfect for me. It wasn’t rushed but it wasn’t dragged out either. I think it worked for them because each of them had issues to overcome. I loved how Porter just knew Charlotte and could connect to her darkness. This book was just the beginning for these two and I have to say that I don’t see their road as being a very easy one. Things are going to get kind of bumpy, I am guessing in the next book. Luckily we don’t have to wait to long for the conclusion of this duet.

This story flowed perfectly and effortlessly. The pace was spot on and I couldn’t put it down once I started reading it. I didn’t want this story to end. This story is told in Dual POV and is NOT a standalone novel. Once you read this book you will want to read the second book in the duet… The Brightest Sunset.

I would 100% recommend this book to every reader out there. Put this book on your TBR list and then 1-click it as soon as it releases. You don’t want to miss this GEM!!! If you have never read a book by Aly Martinez, this is the perfect book to start you emotional journey with this author.

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.
