Review: The Brightest Sunset by Aly Martinez (The Darkest Sunrise #2)

Note: This ARC was provided by the author via InkSlinger PR in exchange for an honest review.

Smirking, he asked, “Sweetheart, our road has never been smooth. Not for a single second since you brought me that fucking pickle jar at the spring fling. And yet you think me loving you is going to change when the road gets bumpy?”
“It could.”
“It won’t.”

Okay, I kinda-sorta-maybe take back what I said about The Darkest Sunrise being Aly Martinez's best work to date. The Darkest Sunrise IS her best work to date--not the first book, but the duet as a whole. I'm saying this because The Darkest Sunrise AND The Brightest Sunset need each other to work. One without the other only gives you half a story, and while they're fantastically amazing on their own, together, these two novels give you the story of two families who were torn apart and then brought together in the most life-changing and seemingly impossible of circumstances. I needed tissues for the first book, and I needed double the amount I had used for the second one. Remember, you're going to need book one before even attempting to read book two for you to get the entire story.

Just like my review for The Darkest Sunrise, I'm going to keep this free of any major details. If you've already read the first book, this second one picks up right where its predecessor left off. Charlotte Mills and Preston Reese have found a second chance at love, but fate throws one hell of a curve ball and everything goes awry. If they get things right, if they allow themselves to see beyond the parameters set by the law and by certain people around them, they may not just be able to hold on to the love that's blossoming between them, but they could very well get an opportunity to have what they never dreamed possible-- love, family, and home. I'm shutting up now. There's a reason why I'm mum about specifics, but you'll get it once you read this heartrending duet. Five-plus stars go to The Brightest Sunset and I'm already counting The Darkest Sunrise duology as two of the best reads for this year. ♥
