The first day of college gives every girl a chance to reinvent herself.

I go and screw mine up by meeting the most gorgeous guy I’ve seen in five years while talking to my cat.
But Andrew Crowner is far from judgmental. By the end of our interaction, he has me smitten by his easy manner and kind smile. And from the way his eyes linger on me before he leaves, I start to think that maybe I’ve caught his attention, too.
I let myself believe that luck may finally be on my side. That is, until I stumble on my roommate, and her overnight guest: Spencer Ashford.
Lean, tattooed, and sexy as sin, Spencer is exactly the type I need to avoid. I would have no trouble with that… were it not for his swift and inexplicable interest in me.
Suddenly, I go from a girl with next-to-no experience with boys to one caught in the crosshairs of two completely different men.
Andrew’s interest is wholesome and sweet. Spencer’s is edgy and raw. My choice should be easy. But there are always complications, and sometimes, matters of the heart take the least expected turns.

My Thoughts

At the start of this year, I was obsessed with New Adult contemporary romances, and then a few months ago I kind of started to get burned out on them. Lately, I have been loving my paranormals, but Never Let Go is such a great story, that it made me want to get back on a contemporary kick. I swear I can’t make up my mind. I love my contemps and my paranormals. Never Let Go is a great example of the new adult genre.

I will give this warning though- if you don’t like love triangles, this may not be the book for you. Paige, the main character of never let go, is totally torn between two guys. Sweet, responsible Andrew, and sexy and seemingly dangerous Spencer. I really liked Paige. I connected with her right away. She seems like such a buttoned up and straight laced girl, but she is really not afraid to speak her mind. She has spunk, and I love my main characters spunky with a side of sassy. She seems totally terrified of not only sex, but everything when it comes to guys. I mean, she was even nervous when Andrew or Spencer would touch her arm. It seemed a little extreme to me, but she never really had the opportunity to be around guys her own age. First with an all girls boarding school and then with taking care of her grandmother full time. I got her strange seclusion.

Andrew seems like such a nice, and overall good guy. And normally that is exactly who I go for. I love dependable and sweet and caring, but for some reason, Andrew never really did it for me. I liked him and I thought he was sweet and would be decent enough for Paige but the thought of them together never got me excited.

Spencer on the other hand, I could totally see with Paige. They pushed each others boundaries. They were exciting and challenging and I felt like Paige came to life around him. Plus, I just knew there was a sweet softie just waiting beneath the surface of Spencer.

Never Let Go is the first book in a series, which I didn’t know until the end of this book. And I have to say that I am super excited to read the next book! If you enjoy New Adult romances, Never Let Go is a must read. The writing is great and so descriptive and the characters rock, which is crucial for romance driven stories.

I’m Scarlett Edwards.  I wrote my first book as a college sophomore.  After six months of edits, it made its debut as Yours to Savor.

That was at the start of 2013.  I’ve written more books since then.  You can find them all here.

It’s funny how quickly life changes.  I used to think I’d need a degree to get a “Real Job.”  Then I wrote a few books, they got somewhat popular, and now I’m living the life as a full-time romance author.

Thanks to all my readers for making my dream come true.

    The NA genre is a hit or miss for me, but this sounds like the kind that would be a hit. I really don’t mind love triangles, especially when it’s between someone you know is good/safe for you and someone who is what you usually go for (bad boys).

    Wonderful review Michelle, I find I really need to mix up my genres, and switch them up. I hardly ever read one genre back to back, and even mix up my Adult, YA and NA reads too. This does sounds good!
