“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.


After devouring Aly Martinez’s emotionally captivating Darkest Sunrise Duet last year I knew that I wanted Tanner Reese and Rita Laughlin (Hartley) to get their own story. When the author finally announced that it was happening, I was so freaking excited and couldn’t wait to get my hands on it as soon as possible. Luckily we didn’t have to wait too long after the initial announcement…thank goodness for that!

Across the Horizon was a sweet, sassy and hilarious tale that captivate my heart right from the very beginning. I really liked Tanner when I first met his character back in the duet, but now I absolutely love and adore everything about him. There is so much more to him than what meets the eye’ and I quickly found myself wanting to know every part of him, both inside and out. His character development in this story really made it easy to connect with him on a much deeper level. He is now one of my top Aly Martinez book boyfriends for sure, although no one can replace Porter because he owns the number one spot – #sorrynotsorry. Now sweet, sweet Rita. My chest hurt because of the pain and heartache she experienced thanks to her no good cheating soon to be ex-husband. She deserved so much better than what she go. Tanner was so perfect for her and I loved everything about their undeniable connection. I couldn’t stop swooning while inhaling this extraordinary story.

Please note that although this story is connected to the Darkest Sunrise Duet, it can be read and enjoyed as a standalone. Although I do suggest reading those books too (before or after) because they are BEYOND incredible and EVERYONE should experience them firsthand.
