When I was fifteen, a single bullet changed my life. I spent the next decade trying to outrun the devastation of my past, building an empire that would shield me from whatever life could throw at me.

But all the money in the world couldn’t help me when I found a screaming newborn abandoned on my doorstep.

I’d never wanted to be a father. Passing the sludge that ran through m

Written with You is the epic conclusion of Aly Martinez's newest duet. I don't know how she continues to shock me with all these twists and turns, but reading an Aly Martinez book is so refreshing because I never know what I'm getting. There was a huge twist in book 1 that I never saw coming and then, just when I thought I had everything figured out- bam. Another one hit and it hit hard.

This story is so hard to review without spoilers for the first book, so it may be a little vague.

This is the most ridiculous duet. Truly. I'm at 60% and I'll only finish it bc it's free on my KU. But I wanted to rant here in the review since I don't want to waste time repeating myself in the status updates.

Here's the illogical crap that's mind boggling to me--and not in a good way (if you don't want spoilers, STOP READING!!!! I warned you):

This is the second installment in the Regret Duet and after Aly left us with a major cliffhanger in the last book... I needed this one like my life depended on it.

Thankfully the wait between these two books is not too long...

I devoured this. Devoured IT! Totally pulled an all-nighter as soon as this hit my kindle. This conclusion was definitely everything I was expecting. Aly totally did not disappoint. After all, she's queen of the duets. She makes sure to keep you interested the entire time with the perfect combination of action, suspense and of course romance.

The baggage we both carried was daunting. And it was the permanent kind that wasn’t going to disappear into nothingness. But maybe it would fade. With time. With happiness. When the good times we’d create together finally outweighed the bad. We were going to have to fight for every moment of peace from now until eternity. But there was no one in the world I would rather have on my side.

"I'm not a wolf in sheep's clothing when I'm with her. She's seen the skeletons in my closet, and she gets them because they are the same ones hanging in hers."

Just when I thought there could be no more secrets....

I finished the whole duet in the one day, that shows how obsessed I was with this story. I couldn’t stop reading, it was so captivating. That prologue alone broke my freakin heart to pieces. I don’t know, it was just really sad and heartbreaking. This book is full of secrets,

Loved it as much as book 1, even a bit more! Aly Martinez is one of the best, she is so talented and makes you feel everything with her books! She can even surprise you with the twists… Told in dual POV, 1st person, it’s the second installment in "The Regret Duet" and has to be read in order. I’d like to read Rosalee & Jacob’s story one day, I know they are only four years old now but well they can grow up, right?! Overall, enjoyed it and hope you love it as well!

There are some stories that no matter how long it's been whether months or years, they stick with you. It's could’ve been a character that you didn’t see coming and they changed your entire reading experience in one chapter or the author's prolific storytelling that grabbed your heart and Never gave it back to you whole and you were ok with that. Do you know why? Because deep down you wanted that experience and you wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world. These books were my experience a

I lived in the seconds. One emotion. One tick of the clock.

If there's one thing Aly Martinez can do, it's write one unpredictable story that will grip you by the heart and keep you at the very edge of your seat. And this book? MY GOD! It was EVERYTHING. Seriously all of the things. An emotional powerhouse of love and secrets, pain and regret, and second chances. Written With You owned me. Absolutely owned me. Beginning to finish. I never wanted it to end.

I love Written with Regret. That cliffhanger almost killed me. Seriously! When I finally found Written with You, my heart soars. Finally! The epic conclusion.

Well it turned out not so epic nor as grand as I expected. It is still good conclusion for this duet. However with a tad of disappointment. There are just too much plot and twist that makes me confuse and frustrated. I know Miss Martinez is well known for giving her readers a mind blowing twist, in this case.... way too much.

**Please take this review with a grain of salt. I started the first half while on a family trip and was distracted. I apologize in advance if I made any mistakes, and please pm me so I can correct them if I did.**

Overall Opinion: It was alright. I was distracted for the beginning of this because I was on a trip, but I still didn't feel all that invested to stop myself from being distracted either (hope that makes sense). I felt like this was a duet that didn't need to be a duet, but

It is rare to find a duet or trilogy that sustains the same quality of writing and story development across all books but Ms. Martinez seems to have honed this craft down to a science.

The conclusion to this story was absolutely riveting. I was hooked and reeled in by the captivating and dynamic characters that, though flawed, definitely had big hearts manifested through their capacity to love. The chemistry between our main characters was palatable. 🔥

The plot was interesting and refreshing. Th

Tragedy brought the H and h together. Years later they’re still grieving, dealing with feelings of guilt, not only because of secrets and lies, but also because of things that happened in the past that was out of their control. Talk about laying the sorrow on thick. Everything about the story felt exaggerated. Even the antics of the cute but unrealistic-just-turned-4-year-old little girl.

I wasn't prepared for this series but I want to prepare you. If you're wanting to read this, DO NOT read any reviews because you'll really want to go into this blind.

That being said, the last book left us with quite the revealment - at least for me. Naturally, there were some things that didn't add up regarding Hadley and what she did. That is brought to light fairly quickly and of course, Caven is upset.
