Publisher's Summary

Sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never harm me. Whoever coined that phrase is a bald-faced liar. Words are often the sharpest weapon of all, triggering some of the most powerful emotions a human can experience.

"You're pregnant."

"It's a boy."

"Your son needs a heart transplant."

Sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never harm me. Lies. Syllables and letters may not be tangible, but they can still destroy your entire life faster than a bullet from a gun. Two words - that was all it took to extinguish the sun from my sky.

"He's gone."

For 10 years, the darkness consumed me. In the end, it was four deep, gravelly words that gave me hope of another sunrise.

"Hi. I'm Porter Reese."

DEEP.. EMOTIONAL.. GRIPPING AND FULL OF FEELS

I am slowly working my way through most of the books written by Aly Martinez because she really knows how to write a unique storyline packed full of feels.. and wow, this Duet delivered so many highs and lows and you really FEEL every single one alongside her well crafted characters. I saw every touching scene as the layered plot slowly unfurled its secrets in books 1 and 2. I hoped, with every tender tentative step forward, that these two damaged people could emotionally move into the light together from their dark heartbreaking pasts. I was thrilled then devastated and heartbroken as their rollercoaster ride twisted and turned. I felt every pitfall as the past and the present painfully collided and I was captivated as every emotional scene revealed its devastating touching truths. And finally, after all the tragedies and triumphs, I eagerly soaked up the perfect HEA ending.

Worth a credit? Yes definitely. Aly Martinez is a skilled author who takes you on a dual POV journey that has so much passion, tangible pain, heartache and love love love. Great narration brought it all to life and made it an enjoyable 5 star audiobook.

Tears

I had tears by the end. Aly is an amazing writer with plot twists all over the place.
The narrators were on point and I'm quickly moving on to book two.

Incomplete

Good book, but predictable. Did not know it wasn’t a complete book, or I wouldn’t have bought it.

Missing a piece

This duet is the story of Dr Charlotte Mills barely surviving her baby boy's kidnapping.

It's 10 years later and she meets Porter Reese who wants her to look at his sons health. Charlotte doesn't care for children since her baby Lucas was stolen and left her feeling like she was barely surviving, but when she starts to let Porter in, he makes her feel again.

Warning there is a cliff hanger to this duet, and this book with make you laugh, and empathize with all the characters Aly Martinez brings to life. It's unfortunate that kidnapping happens in today's society and with the narration of Nelson Hobbs and Kasha Kensington, makes you feel the pain, and the thought process of all touched by the tragedy.

5 HEARTBREAKING" STARS

This was such a heartbreaking, emotional story. I did predict what was going to happen but it didn't take away from the story. What a cliff-hanger. Definitely recommend.

Great story

Love it. Somewhat predictable but it’s still way better than the typical fifty shades type of storyline. I’m definitely going to keep exploring this author. I recommend! Great narrator as well.

so many tears

I loved the book. It made me happy and mad me cry. The audio tore my soul from me. Having these beautiful tragic characters come to life was almost more than I could stand, almost.

New-to-me author. The writing is overwrought, but I was enjoying it well enough until it just...ended.
