This month I am spotlighting an author whose words consume me!
Aly Martinez’s writing never fails to surprise me. Her stories are original, often filled with twists. I am amazed at her ability to make me laugh, gasp and swoon all in the same paragraph. I don’t know of any other author who does that for me.
Aly crafts books that are so brilliant, so moving and so funny, they make me cry from both laughter and heartbreak. She manipulates my feelings and plays with my heart, ripping it out of my chest, she tosses it around for good measure. She knows how to pull the tears from my soul! I must be a sadist because I love every minute of it. Her humor balances out her dramatic plots allowing you to regain some semblance of sanity.
Her characters are beautifully written, even when they’re broken. She writes strong and sassy heroines (which I adore!) and her men hold on to a huge sense of familial responsibility (how freaking sexy is that?). Whether it is friends to lovers, enemies to lovers or chance encounters, sparks fly between her characters. They are electric, they are captivating and addictive.
This is why Martinez has been a go-to author for me since 2014 and why I am infatuated with her imagination and storytelling!
