#BookReview Across the Horizon by Aly Martinez (@AlyMartinezAuth)



Title: Across the Horizon

Series: Standalone

Author: Aly Martinez

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date: 6 December 2018



“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.

What an amazing book! I pulled an all-nighter just to finished it; I couldn’t put it down!! This was my first book from the author and I love love love it!!! The synopsis really spiked my interest and I was so curious to see how Rita and Tanner’s story would be.

Rita is not in the best place right now. Her husband has been cheating on her the last 6 months with a woman they both work with. She’s not that much heartbroken, just angry and frustrated with herself for not realizing sooner what had been going on. I didn’t like her soon-to-be ex-husband from the first page. He is rude, sleazy and egoistic.

Tanner is something else. He might be my most favorite book boyfriend of the year! He’s considerate and comes to her rescue even before actually knew who she was. While reading Tanner’s chapters, you get to see that being successful and having money doesn’t necessary mean that you are happy; he isn’t. He hates the path his life have taken but everything changes when he meets Rita.

I loved their relationship. It was hilarious to see these two interacting with each other. Rita kept him on his toes through the whole book and gave back as good as she got! I really liked his mom and the relationship he has with her and I can understand why she was like that the first time she met Rita.

The story gave me all the feels. Especially at the end I felt both their agony and heartbreak. It’s really amazing how a book can make you feel like that. This book is truly amazing and I definitely recommend to give it a try, you won’t regret it!!!

Originally from Savannah, Georgia, USA Today bestselling author Aly Martinez now lives in South Carolina with her husband and four young children.

Never one to take herself too seriously, she enjoys cheap wine, mystery leggings, and baked feta. It should be known, however, that she hates pizza and ice cream, almost as much as writing her bio in the third person.

She passes what little free time she has reading anything and everything she can get her hands on, preferably with a super-sized tumbler of wine by her side.
