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 my veins down to an innocent child seemed like a tragedy. But there she was—pink cheeks, red hair, and mine.

Somehow, against all logic, that little girl became the best thing that ever happened to me. It was impossible to stay lost in the past when I was the only one who could protect her future.

Which is exactly why, when her mother came back four years later, I was ready for battle.

If only I could stop myself from falling in love with her during the war.

Every little girl dreams of the fairytale. The one where the white knight rushes in to save her from the clutches of evil. They fall in love, have babies, and live happily ever after.

By that definition, my life should have been a fairytale too.

When I was eight years old, Caven Hunt saved me from the worst kind of evil to walk the Earth. It didn’t matter that I was a kid. I fell in love with him all the same.

But that was where my fairytale ended.

Years later, a one-night stand during the darkest time imaginable gave us a little girl. It was nothing compared to the pitch black that consumed me when I was forced to leave her with Caven for good.

At the end of every fairytale, the happily-ever-after is the one thing that remains consistent. It wasn’t going to be mine, but there hadn’t been a night that passed where I hadn’t prayed that it would be hers.

I owed Caven my life.

However, I owed that innocent child more.

And that included ripping the heart from my chest and facing her father again.

My Review

“I don’t believe there is a reason for anything that happens. There are only actions, consequences, and unorchestrated coincidences. But every now and then, after the pain and heartache settle, beauty can be found in the consequences.”

Beauty…that’s something that the hero and heroine of Aly Martinez’s The Regret Duet haven’t had much of for most of their lives due to other people’s malicious intentions and machinations. But while their pasts still very much define their present and make everything that’s happened overwhelming and confusing, there’s also a bond there – one that hopefully will sustain them through the pain, the devastation, and the uncontrollable emotions and memories that still carry an incredible amount of weight in determining how they proceed.

But regardless of how much time these two have spent apart, their lives were written with each other since their initial tragic interaction and while they’ve had to wade through so much baggage and too many elephants threatening to trample them, they’re alive…they’re together and that has to be enough…AND, it so is because when they add in a giggling and beyond precious 4 year old who loves them with all of her heart, they can’t be anything but, and even though their scars will always be with them, they can let go of the guilt and the regret that once consumed them as long as they remember that living and feeling are exactly what those they loved and lost would want them to do.

Aly Martinez is a phenomenal writer who seamlessly weaves suspense, drama, and passion together in a way that readers can’t help but be consumed with, and her latest duet, Written with Regret and Written with You, is everything that I’ve grown to love about Martinez’s storytelling and character development as well as the twists and turns she takes readers on as they attempt to figure out how the plot’s conflicts will be resolved and let me tell you, the ending of this duet is something I never saw coming, which is exactly why I adored it!

About Aly

Originally from Savannah, Georgia, USA Today bestselling author Aly Martinez now lives in South Carolina with her husband and four young children.

Never one to take herself too seriously, she enjoys cheap wine, mystery leggings, and olives. 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.
