    ❥ ARC REVIEW ❥ FROM THE EMBERS BY ALY MARTINEZ

    TITLE: From the Embers
    AUTHOR: Aly Martinez
    GENRE: Contemporary Romance
    PUBLICATION: April 28th, 2021

    Synopsis

    From USA Today Bestselling Author Aly Martinez comes a new heart-stopping standalone romance.

    In the aftermath of tragedy, it’s strange the things you remember.
    The deafening boom as the house exploded.
    The paralyzing fear as I searched for my wife.
    The blinding smoke burning my eyes as I carried her out.

    But carved into my soul for the rest of my days would be the earth-shattering realization that the woman in my arms wasn’t my wife.

    Bree and I were the only survivors—not that either of us were truly living after that night. As a single dad with nowhere else to go, I moved into her guest house. And somehow, through the guilt and grief, we forged an unlikely team.

    It took years, but I watched the gradual return of her smile—slow and life-altering.
    The two of us could sit outside for hours, talking about nothing, and it filled the massive hole in my chest with new life.

    I may have carried her out of that fire, but the truth was, Bree saved me.

    As we healed, the secrets and lies of the past smoldered in the ashes, threatening to ignite again.

    Our love was born from the embers, and together we would go up in flames.

    This book surrounds a set of friends, (Jessica is married to Eason, Bree is married to Rob) in an instant it all changes when an inferno tragically kills a husband and wife of the significant others which survived this tragedy, the game of what IF starts causing havoc on Eason's conscience.

    Our two survivors, Jessica and Eason are left floundering in their wake of devastation and heartbreak, desolate, and inconsolable as they deal with the aftermath of saying goodbye to their significant other.

    This book packs a hard punch from the emotional journey these two go on to the jaw dropping twists this author spins, twists you never see coming..

    Since it was Eason's house which burned to the ground Jessica offers up her pool house knowing that her deceased husband would approve.

    Through the ups and downs of co parenting and running a business and a household all those butterfly feels came out to play as Eason stole the show. Being in such close quarters these two do grow close as they lean on each other, as they develop more than friendship for the other. It wasn't insta, but they instantly stole my heart.

    This was so beautifully written, from the very first chapter I was hooked, the very last page I had tears in my eyes and a heart full to bursting. This author excels when it comes to the angsty, emotional, heart gripping stories and this one is no different.
