Never Let You Go by Monica Murphy
So I know I am soooo late to this little party and I can’t apologize enough. Life has been using me as its whipping boy the last few weeks. Hopefully I can rectify that today with review and other posts and setting up future posts, just in case. In the meantime, I give you my review and the amazing Never Let You Go by Monica Murphy!
Release Date: May 3rd, 2016
Series: Never Tear Us Apart #2
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Darkly sexy, emotional and forbidden, a woman unwittingly falls in love with the son of her abductor. The conclusion of a two-book contemporary romance series by New York Times bestselling author Monica Murphy.
Lies hurt. Lies destroy. I tried my best to understand why Ethan kept his secrets but it was so hard. Until I realized that I couldn’t deny myself any longer — I needed to be with him. We needed each other. Despite my family’s wariness, the media’s fascination with us, the fact that his father still has a stranglehold on our lives, we belong together. No matter what. I will never let Ethan go. But sometimes love destroys us too, and we’re too weak to banish the demons. Especially when our demons are determined to ruin us…
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Never Let You Go was emotional and dramatic. Monica Murphy is a maestro of suspense in this contemporary romance, hindered by the past future and present.
Katie is slowly overcoming her traumatic past…with the help of Will, or as she’s come to realize: Ethan, the same boy who saved her as a kid. This story is a lot of peddling through I love yous, I miss you, you lied to me, what happened, how can we work, what will people think. After about the 4th round of the same questions with no forward momentum I was losing faith, but I kept trudging. Don’t get me wrong, I loved this story, and I love the romance between Katie and Ethan and how it may even be perceived as taboo, but for two people so intent on communication, they said nothing, for a story that hinted at so much, we were showed nothing. Any time it seemed something might have happened we had a time jump to another seen and more conversations that usually started with “what will they think?” before it progressed further, including Katie’s family.
Interestingly enough, this story has multiple pints of view: Katie, Ethan/Will, Aaron, Will’s father and the overzealous news reporter. The extra 2 POvs added suspense and drama to the otherwise lovesick story. And can I just say, Aaron needs some serious Psycho help, thank You.
Any ways, yes I love the love but wish we got to see more of it and not just the constant back and forth on we’re in love, but what’s going to happen, can we make it? Otherwise fabulous book, and also this isn’t just a romance, don’t ever think that, just because that’s what I tend to focus on can be misleasding…I’m sorry okay. This is very much a drama. If you’ve read Never Tear Us Apart, you know all these people have some serious frickin issues, that’s not just going to go away, though they do get a dog *insert goofy smile here* Aww co-ownership!
