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.”




Aly, Aly, Aly, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways…

I love thee for the emotional ride you take me.
I love thee for the unique story lines you give me.
I love thee for the heroes I can fall in love with.
I love thee for the heroines who will do any woman proud.
I love thee for the beautiful prose you sprinkle on the pages.
Oh how I love thee…

Quite frankly, every time this book pops up in my head, I swear I get into this semi-trance when I think of the emotions that this book evoked out of me. Most importantly, my mind zooms in on Porter. Porter is… just… perfect!!!

Charlotte is still reeling from a past that just completely broke her. She’s a shell of her old self. When Porter enters her life, something turns around in her head. Porter himself has his own demons to fight and facing an uphill battle. When Charlotte enters his life, something changes in his head. Regardless of Charlotte’s reservations, Porter manages to slowly crack thru her barriers. With Porter’s charm, wit and overall character, Charlotte doesn’t stand a chance. How can she?!

While I’m not a mother myself, Charlotte’s experience feels real enough; which brings me to my next point. Be careful of the emotional triggers that abound in this book. Myself, I have to take some breaks every now and then because if I didn’t, I felt like this book will swallow me whole. Her pain was palpable and the despair all felt too real. But it was also very encouraging to see how she slowly challenged herself to move forward, albeit in a turtle pace.

Porter cannot be any more perfect in my mind. I don’t care what anyone tells me or what I read out there. I’m claiming him!!! Porter is MINE!!! 😁 I’m truly at a loss for words to describe how much I love his character. 😍😍😍

These 2 coming together is poignant to see. Mix in the humor and it feels more bittersweet. There is so much anguish yet so much hope… so much love…

It will hook you in right from the start. The angst will punch you in the gut immediately. Charlotte’s pain might break you. Porter will sweep you off your feet instantly. Tears will flow but there’ll be plenty of smiles as well. You may or may not see the ending coming, but I think that’s irrelevant. The ending will have your eyes bug out. And all you’d want to do is grab for the 2nd book, The Brightest Sunset.

For me, without a doubt, one of Aly’s best, and if you’re familiar with Aly’s works like I am, I think you’ll agree as well. If you’re not, all I’m saying is that every one of her book is top-notch so for me to say this is one of her best, well… need I say more? 😊 Seriously, I will give this more than 5 stars if I can!

Whatever fuels Aly, I hope it never stops. Every story and every character are fresh. Her writing is beautiful. She makes even the most inconsequential thing consequential because it perfectly captures moments. I for one, know that I’ll keep coming back to her.

And now, on to book 2!
