REVIEW: Singe by Aly Martinez

SINGE is the first book in an ALL NEW smokin-hot standalone series by Aly Martinez!

She was my nightmare. Every time I closed my eyes, I watched her fall into that inferno. Over and over, I failed to save her.
I hadn’t been able to reach her, and the guilt only burned hotter over time. Four years later, I was the unreachable one.
Heroes aren’t always saints. Sometimes, we’re nothing more than jaded sinners driven by sleepless nights and hearts full of darkness.
And then I met her. She was a dreamer who managed to soothe my scars and heal my wounds.
But, as the flames closed in around us, I feared I wasn’t the right man to save her. That is until I realized she was the one woman I’d burn the world down to protect.



Aly is one of the authors whose books I will pick up sight unseen and all. Interestingly enough, her cover and blurb is what caught my eyes the very first time I picked up her book.

With this book, whether I want to or not, the cover definitely hooked me right in. Hello! You gotta be blind to not fall in love with that! No? It’s just me? Anyways, the cover alone was enough for me. Did I pay attention to the blurb? No, not really. Like I said, this is Aly after all. And because I didn’t read the blurb, I thought it actually worked out for me.

On that note, I must say the first 15% threw me off a bit. There I was wondering who these nasty people are and what parts they play. Then I was wondering who all these alpha dudes are and what parts they play. Then the story opened up and in true Aly form, you see the angts-y passionate pull b/w Jude and Rhion.

Jude and Rhion’s past history is brimming with scars and regrets. When they met again, there was much to be said to one another. Unexpectedly, in their own way, they’ve become each other’s salvation.

Rhion, the secret writer that she is, paid homage to other popular writers and tropes in the current romance scene, which was cute. She’s got her demons to fight but she didn’t lose her humor, luckily, and her quirky behaviour. Jude can be intense at times but he also made me laugh. And he made me swoon. The heat b/w these 2 is like a given, yowza! But one thing that stood out in my head is their humorous interaction. This one small scene about the biscuits just makes me smile every time I think of it. Don’t ask my why!

The suspense part nicely tied in their past. I had my suspicions but it still surprised me. That bonus POV definitely piqued my interest.

As the start of a new series, it is a standalone but it also introduces a lot of characters who will get their stories later. Alpha dudes who I can already tell will melt my heart, eek!

At this rate, my love for Aly’s books just keeps growing exponentially. I’ve yet to read a book from her that misses the mark. It’s a lot of pressure to put on an author, I realize that, but I think she’s up to it. So just putting it out there… is all…
