♕ KAT'S REVIEW ♕ ARC ♕ THE DARKEST SUNRISE (The Darkest Sunrise #1) by Aly Martinez

SERIES: (The Darkest Sunrise #1)
AUTHOR: Aly Martinez
 GENRE: Contemporary Romance
PUBLICATION: July 13th, 2017
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.”

Holy fucking shitballs, bugger me sideways and back, bitch of a book to review, gah what to write, the author has not made it easy for us bloggers to write our reviews up without divulging any spoilers what so ever, so mines pretty much going to be full of cuss words lol..The frustration is real folks!! 

DARKEST SUNRISE: is the first book within the (Darkest Sunrise #1) series by Aly Martinez. In this first book we met Charlotte, Parker and Tom who plays a pivotal role in this book. Two intertwining stories that collide in a gut wrenching climax that takes a hit to the heart. 

CHARLOTTE 
How could a day go from good to bad so quickly in the blink of an eye? From saving a woman’s child to losing your own, ten years later and it’s turned into a cold case. 

She's frozen in time not able to claw her way out of the darkness that tries to drag her down daily. The only thing that kept her going was Hope and her job as a Doctor running a Pulmonology clinic. 

PARKER 
Three years on from losing his wife life stopped still and never recovered, the sole parent of two children, one healthy the other suffers from an illness and the only woman that can help in any way is Charlotte, but here's the deal she may be the best in her field at what she does, but the deal breaker is she doesn't treat children. 

➽ “Two people alone in the darkness. No questions. No judgments. No faking it.”

Hitting chapter twenty three, all my emotions that I’d kept under wraps throughout this book came to a holt when I’d reached the end of that chapter, that’s when my heart flew out of my chest like a curveball on a collision course to my heart. My heart just sunk, one minute I was sad with the news that Charlotte was delivered by Tom then in the next breath I breathed a sigh of relief only to wonder what now? What a rollercoaster of a fucked up life she’s led, 10 years of not living, 10 years of just existing, to finally being able to breathe with an amazing man walking beside her to be thrown into a cloud of darkness again. 

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

She’s just stepped out of the darkness into the light is she going to spiral down that slippery slope again only to never return? 

I needed, craved, wanted an emotional read, this had all the bones to give me that, and it didn’t reach within and drag those out of me until I was nearing the end, so it was a slow burn climatic read, in the beginning I found it hard connecting with Charlotte's character, I empathised with her loss, but it wasn’t until she stepped out of the shadows into the light was when I was actually starting to see her. I see you now. 

Holy fuckity fuck fuck, so yes I have hit the ending, yes it ends in one major fucking cliffy, did I see it coming yes I had an inkling at the beginning, but to read it fully in your face to completely understand it sucked the breath out of my lungs. So many unanswered questions that will all come in due course when the next book is released. God I need that book now!!

My review is like a rollercoaster going off the rails, does it make sense? Not really until you read this book. You have to read this book! Goddamnit just one click it when it comes out and read it!! Then I can laugh at you when your emotions and brain gets all twisted up..Sorry not sorry.So brilliantly written, a curveball that had me by the guts, an ending like no other, an emotionally invigorating, debilitating read. I highly recommend this!!
