“Sometimes love happens when you least expect it.” That was what my husband’s mistress told me the day I found out about their affair.
I didn’t believe it until five minutes later when mouth-watering celebrity chef Tanner Reese walked up, tossed his arm around my shoulders, and told my cheating husband to take a hike.
Tanner and I couldn’t have been more different. He spent his weekends at clubs, rubbing elbows with fellow A-listers. I spent mine in yoga pants with cheese boards and a glass of wine—or six.
Our relationship shouldn’t have worked, but it did. That is until Tanner proved to me that even though love happens when you least expect it…
So does heartbreak.
This book makes me realise just why I love reading romance books. This book is connected to an amazing The Darkest Sunrise duet but can be read as a complete standalone. Amy Martinez really knows how to write a love story about characters that you really start to root for and want to make it.
This somewhat heartbreaking and hurt fueled read is swoon-worthy and you just fall hard and fast. It does also contain the usual wit and banter. Tanner, he was the character of this book for me. Although he has his problem and a lot of them could mean the end but he knows what he wants and refuses to lose. Rita also has my heart too. I wanted to grab her and hold her and tell her she was special and she deserves so much.
I really can’t say more than I have been but know this is a special book. That completely needs to be read. This is a huge recommend for me. Amy Martinez has a way of making a HEA special.

A celebrity chef and a scorned wife… what’s not to love! Tanner Reese is one character that I won’t forget in a hurry.. he is witty, sinfully HOT and a completely lovable guy. One who thought the lady of his dreams would just fall into his lap once he was done growing up! He found out quickly life had different plans and with his celebrity came the woman who was only interested in the fame… that was until the day that Rita quite literally flew into his life and turned his world upside down. The banter with these two was hilarious they really did complement each other.. What can I say Aly really knows how to write a fabulous HEA romance!

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.
