Truth: Penn Walker entered my life like a summer storm—dark, ominous, and filled with thunder.

After witnessing my husband’s murder, I didn’t have much of a heart left to offer a man.

But Penn took it all.

Every jagged shard.

Every broken bit.

Even the dirty and twisted pieces that I wish never existed. 


Lie: I didn’t need him to save me.

Lie: I knew exactly who he was.

Lie: Losing him wouldn’t destroy me.

But that’s the thing about lies—you never know who to believe.

OH wowser, the first book in this duet left me anxious for this, and boy oh boy I was not Disappointed !!! I fell in love with this couple in the first book and grew not only to love them but admire them. Both had been through so much in life yet still came out fighting. 
Cora was left devastated in book 1, although we readers were in on the little secret!! 
This book is just as intense, just as captivating and just as addictive. Danger isn't left behind, but the twists that come in this second book blew me away !!!! Seriously? so freaking good! I can now stop pulling my hair out. Penn Walker is a man you will just melt for, even with his secrets. The drama and angst in this book will have your mind exhausted in the best possible way, because you just know this isn't a couple who will give in, this is a couple that will survive or die trying, and that's what had me so nervous !!! I knew i could'nt bear anything to happen to either Penn nor Cora. If ever a couple deserved so peace, love and hope in their lives, it's them. This is book and couple have both leapt right into my top duet reads this year. Aly Martinez most definitely has surpassed all my expectations and i cannot wait for more !!!!!


OMG, I seriously can't even think of where to begin my rant about this book. Raw, Unique, Heart pounding, jaw drooping, tear invoking, fan freaking tastic !!! 
The two main characters in this book, Penn and Cora will just blow you and your tender heart to smitherines. , I kid you not !!!
Cora has been dealt enough lemons to keep the world going on lemonade, yet her strength of characters just floored me. This is a woman who will not alter the beautiful person she is inside for anyone or anything !! When life wants to break her she will keep breathing !!!! This is a heroine that will stay with you for a long time !!! I loved her heart and her soul. 
Penn is a man filled with rage and vengence, his story is heartbreaking, I MEAN REALLY HEARTBREAKING !!! This is a hero, that you will never forget!! I don't even need to mention he's hot because this man will have you at boiling point in 0-5 seconds !! 
This isn't a sweet love story, its unpredictable, it absolutely grips you and hauls you into their world with no apologies!! I can't even begin to go over the emotions a felt with this book but i can tell you, sobbed, I had palpitations, I just couldn't put this book down for a min!!! 
This is the first part of a duet and i'm not sure how i will stay sane till the next part !! IT IS THAT FREAKING GOOD !!



Originally from Savannah, Georgia, USA Today bestselling author Aly Martinez now lives in South Carolina with her four young children.

Never one to take herself too seriously, she enjoys cheap wine, mystery leggings, and baked feta. It should be known, however, that she hates pizza and ice cream, almost as much as writing her bio in the third person.

She passes what little free time she has reading anything and everything she can get her hands on, preferably with a super-sized tumbler of wine by her side.
