“Sometimes love happens when you least expect it.” That was what my husband’s mistress told me the day I found out about their affair.

I didn’t believe it until five minutes later when mouth-watering celebrity chef Tanner Reese walked up, tossed his arm around my shoulders, and told my cheating husband to take a hike.

Tanner and I couldn’t have been more different. He spent his weekends at clubs, rubbing elbows with fellow A-listers. I spent mine in yoga pants with cheese boards and a glass of wine—or six.

Our relationship shouldn’t have worked, but it did. That is until Tanner proved to me that even though love happens when you least expect it…

So does heartbreak.


*****Patty’s Review*****

*****FOUR STARS*****
{ARC Generously Provided by Author}



”ACROSS THE HORIZON” is a spin-off of the Darkest Sunriseduet. The couple in this story is Porter’s younger brother and Charlotte’s best friend. We met Tanner and Rita in the previous story and knew that they became romantically involved but never got their backstory until now. Their romance starts at about the same time that Porter and Charlotte’s did, but without all the crazy drama, and luckily we don’t have to relive it in this book!



Rita meets Tanner not long after her marriage falls apart when she finds out her husband has been having an affair. All signs would point to Tanner being a rebound for Rita, but as the story unfolds it becomes clear that these two were meant to be.



While I thought the story was enjoyable it was nowhere near as good as the previous books. There was a little bit of drama and angst, and a good dose of steam, but the story was missing that spark I come to expect from an Aly Martinez book. It’s still worth picking up for those who are fans of this author. I did love Tanner and I think readers are going to fall for him as well.



Here are my overall ratings:

Hero: 4.5
Heroine: 4
Plot: 4
Angst: 4
Steam: 4.5
Chemistry Between Hero & Heroine: 4

ACROSS THE HORIZON is currently available!
