Review ~ Never Me by Kate Stewart

Reviewed by Donna ~ 4.5 Stars

“I’m not the guy who gets you, Nadine.” His voice was shaking like mine. I looked up to see his face twisted. “I’m not the one. As much as I want to be, I am not the guy who gets you.”

From the blurb you think that Nadine is going to be one of those girls you hate but nothing could be further from the truth. Nadine has loved once…a mistake that she will never repeat again. What happened in her past is staying firmly in her past, but has she really dealt and moved on, or is her current modus operandi a security blanket that just masks her pain? Has she really dealt and moved on?

Nadine goes on a road trip with her best friend and this means fresh meat for Nadine! A get away from it all holiday is just what these two need to unwind and let go. It is while on this trip that Nadine and Rory bump into another group, they all hang around together and this is where Nadine meets Spencer.

“And what I want is every inch of you covered in me. I want you to remember me…you will remember me”

Spencer was totally and utterly adorable; he was lawyer and could see right through Nadine. He knew that she was hiding something and he wanted to prove to her that she was capable of so much more. She didn’t need to be the person she was portraying; she just needed to be Nadine. Spencer was just perfect, as I said above adorable, charming, cute, interesting and at times hilarious. He manages to worm his way in with Nadine, he treads cautiously and they soon become firm friends, sharing private moments, their pasts, their secrets he manages to totally open her up.

“I don’t think I’m going to survive you,” he whispered. “I don’t think you should keep starting something you won’t finish.” “I don’t think you know who the hell I am yet.” He grinned at me with challenging and confident eyes. “Likewise.”

This is just a road trip though, a holiday…can what they found here be it for them? They each have their own lives ahead of them; they have their jobs and their own life. These two may just be the band aids that they both needed to make them see that what they were settling for was not enough, maybe they both need something more, maybe they both deserve something more and even (gasp!) they want something more. Maybe, just maybe it wasn’t their time, the stars are not aligned, and fate and destiny have other ideas.

“…There is nothing more profound, nor will there ever be, than your place in the heart of the woman you love.”

This is a story about finding yourself, growing up, second chance love and leaning to trust. Finding that person whom you trust completely and stripping yourself back to the bare bones. It is angsty, it is funny, you will laugh and you will cry but you will also fall in love with a bunch of characters that will steal your heart. It is a page turner, fast paced and will keep you captivated from start to finish and if you are anything like me, you will want more! To me their story is just beginning, I have had the appetiser and the main course, now I want the dessert.

“Kiss me goodbye, Nadine , and go hit all your levels. Go take over and do all the shit you were meant to. Just know it’s okay to trust and get hurt, or you aren’t living at all.”

I didn't want this one to end and I still WANT MORE!! Another book where it ends when their journey is really just beginning...please Kate write MORE!!! I loved this book from start to finish, seriously addictive writing, intense chemistry and a unique story that will ensure you will be left like me, just wanting MORE. I LOVED Spencer and Nadine, destiny and fate were being cussed throughout this book, you couldn't help but will them to be together. My only slight niggle, is there are a few typo’s etc, but this is no way took away my enjoyment from reading this book.
