Title: Written with Regret
Author: Aly Martinez
This is the first in a duet.
I finished this book 3 days ago and I’m still pretty speechless about the whole thing. Anyone who knows me knows, this isn’t like me.
I’ve had a run of quite angsty emotional reads recently and this is absolutely up there with the best of them.
Aly has this amazing ability to grab you and pull you in. This book starts with such a bang and the continued dual timeline is a great way to lead us through.
I thought Caven was fantastic. His character development and the transformations he goes through in this book are life changing. I completely get where he is, he is such a bloke in some sections lol and then such a sweetie in others. He’s absolutely stolen my heart.
Our heroine, well, that’s a little trickier. I like her, I’m rooting for her, I want her to do and be everything she can be. There are some beautiful moments in this book, some breathtaking, some heartbreaking, some points I had to just stop and say, wow.
I can see that this is going to be one of the best of the year. The writing is beautifully done, the story is gripping and dynamic, the characters are human, flawed and perfectly imperfect.
If I could give this more I would, all of the stars for this book! I’m left anxiously waiting for book 2, as ever.
