Blog Tour + Review: From the Embers by Aly Martinez

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

From The Embers, an all-new not-to-be-missed, standalone catastrophic romance from USA Today bestselling author Aly Martinez is available now!

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.

Be consumed by the fire, today!
Exclusively on Kindle Unlimited.

**ARC provided in exchange for an honest review**

From the Embers was such a beautiful and emotional contemporary romance. I was hooked from the start and really connected to the main characters Eason and Bree. Especially Eason stole my heart with how amazing he was. This story starts out with a huge tragedy, and they both lose their spouses and become single parents (Bree has a son and daughter, and Eason has a daughter). Even though they aren't the bestest of friends, they find comfort and support in each other. Eason has been trying to break into the music industry for years but hasn't had his big break yet, and Bree who owns a company (but became a stay at home mom when she had kids) decides to get back to work as CEO. They find a great balance between work and taking care of the kids together, and I absolutely loved how great things went.

There were some ups and downs but at the end of the day they did the best they could. The children were so cute and I loved Eason's relationship with all three of them. Bree and Eason are the opposite: Bree is stubborn and reserved, and Eason is fun, lighthearted, and laid-back. But they balance each other out and work perfectly together. The romance was a bit of a slow-burn but it was perfect in my opinion. It would've felt rushed if these two came together sooner. The chemistry was amazing and I loved the intimacy. This is the kind of story I love from Aly Martinez. She is one of the best when it comes to emotional romances, and I enjoyed From the Embers immensely. I already look forward to her next book.
