Publisher's Summary

From USA Today best-selling author Aly Martinez comes a new heart-stopping stand-alone romance.

In the aftermath of tragedy, it’s strange the things you remember. 

The deafening boom as the house exploded. 

The paralyzing fear as I searched for my wife. 

The blinding smoke burning my eyes as I carried her out. 

But carved into my soul for the rest of my days would be the earth-shattering realization that the woman in my arms wasn’t my wife. 

Bree and I were the only survivors - not that either of us were truly living after that night. As a single dad with nowhere else to go, I moved into her guest house. And somehow, through the guilt and grief, we forged an unlikely team. 

It took years, but I watched the gradual return of her smile - slow and life-altering. 

The two of us could sit outside for hours talking about nothing, and it filled the massive hole in my chest with new life. 

I may have carried her out of that fire, but the truth was, Bree saved me.

As we healed, the secrets and lies of the past smoldered in the ashes, threatening to ignite again.  

Our love was born from the embers, and together, we would go up in flames.

⭐️ THIS IS TRULY AN EPIC & AWESOME JOURNEY ⭐️

Oh Aly, wow wow wow.. what a unique, heartbreaking slash heartwarming journey - that I don’t want to say too much about for fear of spoilers.. but, I do want to say that it’s an epic journey of loss and love. Two couples.. best friends.. one night without their kids.. and only two will live to see another day. It’s regret, it’s guilt, it’s grief, it’s loss, it’s love and it’s how to slowly pick up the pieces to live again.. and to love again - because these two single parents, who once hadn’t liked each other much, certainly deserved their beautiful happily ever after.

HOWEVER, this riveting, emotional, well-written story is far far more than that.. with twists that rips the ground out from beneath Eason and Bree’s feet.. with secrets that surface from the pits of Hell.. with anguish and torment beating at the their door.. and, with revelations that shocked them to their core, the feels were relentless. Then there’s the character growth.. the family dynamics between two parents and three sweet wee ones all under six.. the building back of careers and lives from the ashes.. the building attraction, romance, passion, trust and love.. the wiping the slate clean to make new happy memories.. and the beautiful natural forging of one whole loving family.

Worth a credit? Yes absolutely yes.. the first few chapters were heartbreaking and tragic.. but the clouds slowly pass in days of plods or punches.. and, when the sun eventually shines again, it’s the right couple that evolve from the inferno into forever. It rips a bad, barely beating heart out and it sews a healthy, whole, beautiful one back together again for life and love. The dual POV narration by Connor and Erin was perfect and they certainly delivered by bringing the characters to life, by bringing the feels that flayed and floored.. destroyed and crippled.. flowed and flamed.. shocked and shamed.. tugged and pulled.. ignited and combusted and together they created five star perfection.

AMAZING BOOK

This is the first book I've read/listened to by Aly Martinez. IT WAS AMAZING. It has all the feels. The twist at the end had me reeling. It ended with a perfect HEA. This is one audiobook I'll be relistening to in the future. I wasn't ready for it to end.

Erin Mallon and Connor Crais are excellent narrators. Their performances were perfection. They brought so much emotion to the performance that it rolled like a movie in my head.

Disjointed, unrealistic, no chemistry

I was really disappointed by this book, especially since I usually enjoy AM's material. This story had lots of holes and lacked emotion.

From the Embers

Tears are running down my face as I write this review.

What a GREAT book!

I just finished listening to this audiobook and cannot express my deep appreciation for the writers wit, charm, imagination, and intelligence to bring forth such a heartwarming and beautiful story. A story of life, of tragedy and deception, of joy, of love, and of perseverance to reach the stars.

A must read or listen to…..I have a new fav author, AM, you are the best.

Ally Martinez’s best one yet!

I’ve read many Ally Martinez books over the years and I loved them all. But this one is just…WOW! It’s unexpected, sad, painful, funny, touching, joyful and impossible to put in pause. I’m about to listen again, it was that good. And I want to go back and hear it again with the knowledge of the twists to come. The narration was perfection, bringing the story to life.

Such a great book

Wow I love everything about this book. Connor Crais and Erin Mallon were incredible in their portrayal of these characters. Wow there is so much I want to say but I kind of feel speechless. It’s a book that could easily have been a 14 hour narration with how much went on throughout the story. It was so well written and performed perfectly that I want to go back and listen all over again.

Absolutely Amazing! A Wild Ride...

From the Embers is yet another literary masterpiece and further display of what a genius this author is when it to comes to her craft of story telling. From the early chapters of this book I was hooked and knew my heart was in it for the long haul. My mind was blown multiple times and my heart was broken and my emotions were all over the place as my heart bled for these imaginary characters that seemed too real. Thankfully, after all the drama and the greatest wreckage Eason and Bree could have ever known, this story also came with a whole lot of healing, love and a true sense of family.

Aly Martinez has an amazing gift when it comes to writing. I have truly enjoyed so many of her stories and I love that they span across a lot of different tropes and are all so uniquely different and that she writes stories that 100% suck you in and captivate every part of you while you are reading. To me, that is true raw talent. From the Embers is definitely one of my top reads of the year. I felt every moment of this book in my soul, and would highly recommend it! 

Erin Mallon and Connor Crais did a truly wonderful job bringing forth all the complex and real emotions this story deserved. They were both utter perfection and I would definitely recommend them!

10 STARS!!!

Wow! What a ride! This book is fabulous. Aly is always an instant buy for me but I think this is her best book yet. So many twists and turns. But the love shone through it all. It's so well written. I'm sure I will listen to it more than once. Both narrators did a great job also.

One of my favorite kind of books to read is one where the couple faces circumstances together without any stupid breakups and this was perfect.
