Review - Never Close Enough (The Never #1) by Anie Michaels


The last thing Ella Sinclair needed on her birthday was a cheating boyfriend, a broken heart, and a dead car battery in a remote beach town. At her greatest moment of need, a protective and sexy Porter Masters comes to her rescue. Ella takes a holiday week at the coast to discover herself and finds her attraction to Porter potent and undeniable. Uncertain of their future together, Ella struggles to open her heart to trust again. 

Porter Masters takes care of his own: his single mother, his company, and now he’s compelled to protect the beauty that walked into his world. Never one for relationships in his past, Porter discovers that he was waiting all along for Ella. As their time together comes to an end, will Porter fight for the woman who stole his heart? Porter will find a way to keep her, despite the obstacles.

4 Stars

I got a little whiplash with this book. My emotions were on one heck of a roller coaster ride. One minute I was angry and sad for Ella because of what she’s put through and the next minute I’m getting all giddy when Porter appears all well-mannered and shit. Even though he was a bit of an asshole at first you could still tell that he was going to be giving you some tingles.

I really like how the author portrays these characters emotions. It always makes for a great story when you can feel the emotions as you read. The chemistry and passion was definitely there. By the end I wanted to toss my kindle across the room. Ella has some issues that aren’t quite going away as quietly as she expected.

It gets real interesting. Tension rises, anticipation kills you slowly and then holy hell cliffhanger!!! I know some people hate cliffhangers. I honestly love them. I especially love them when it’s done right. When it leaves you wanting to scream, punch shit, smash your kindle and crave some more. That’s exactly what Anie Michaels has done. Very much looking forward to reading Book 2.
