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 s

Sadly, I just didn't love this...and, believe me, no one is more surprised than me. I LOVE Aly Martinez and usually love her books. As I said above, I am very much the minority in not loving take this review with the proverbial grain of salt...I definitely think this is a case of it's me, not you.

I rated book one of this duet 4 stars...and in hindsight, I am thinking that I was feeling generous that day; however, I am still leaving it at 4 stars as I definitely enjoyed i

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. It's real

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...

“God, why does this hurt?”

“Because love is an impossible game. Especially when only one person knows the rules.

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. I truly loved this story and

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.

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.

INCREDIBLE!! The conclusion to ”The Regret Duet” completely surpassed my expectations. Book one ended with a HUGE and crazy reveal. I thought that plot twist was heavy enough to carry through to the end of the duet, but oh no, Aly Martinez with her clever writing, went and added another mind-blowing reveal in the story that I never saw coming!

I have read several books by Aly Martinez and have loved the majority of them, but this series has won its spot as my top favorite by this author. I loved Caven even more in book two. His love for his little girl and the woman who was his true soul mate catapulted him into top best book boyfriend status.

If you haven’t started this series yet, I highly recommend that you bump it up your TBR list. This story is going to hold you captive and you’ll love every minute of it!

Here are my overall ratings:

Hero: 5++++++
Heroine: 5
Plot: 5
Angst: 4.5
Steam: 4.5
Chemistry Between Hero & Heroine: 5

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!

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.

Story – 2.5 Stars

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 rounded up to 3 stars because of the additional twist. I

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

**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 that c/>

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.

The first book in the duet, Written With Regret , left us with an absolutely shocking cliffhanger than made me crave for this book like an erratic nutcase. The wait was SOOOO worth it!

This picks up right where the first book left us, mid way through Hadley’s birthday party. After a very confronting conversation with Trent, Hadley’s newly constructed life is beginning to crumble. Trent has shaken the foundation of everything she has built with Caven and Rosalee.

All the chickens are coming home to roost in this page turning conclusion to this thrilling duet. Not just for Hadley though, Caven has his own skeletons that continue to haunt him and maybe it’s time to rev

Oops. I accidentally started this book (the follow-up book) before the first one Written with Regret By the time I figure out what I’d done, I just couldn’t stop reading.

Absolutely brilliant. Aly Martinez has a way of sucking you in, breaking your heart and making you glad for it. Caven and Hadley's story was far from finished in Written with Regret. The conclusion to their journey will take you on another rollercoaster ride of emotions that is so worth all the angst: another stunning revelation that will make your heart stop and an epilogue that will leaving smiling and wishing for more.

Our entire lives were one impossibility after another.

What a ride! Not much I can say without spoiling things for people who haven’t read it, but it was the perfect wrap up to this duet. Suspenseful with some romance. Angst. Heartbreak. All of the above. I feel like all the questions posed in book one were answered and many things came full circle. Great writing with flawed characters that have a wild story!

Whoa... I can’t imagine experiencing what these two character went through, both individually and collectively. My heart hurt for the heroine in so many ways, as she wasn’t at all what I perceived her to be from the first book! The hero was more complex, and frustrated me at times, but with good reason, for the most part. Loving so hard after coming back from hell would be tough for anyone to navigate though.

The twists through this duet were ones I did not see coming, and boy were
