Review—Never Let Go by Nicola Haken
“I’m dying, Dexter…”
Seriously, I have been on this ride from the very beginning with Emily, Dexter, Rachel, Jared, & Chris. This book was by far the most gut-wrenching to read. I loved it. All of the unanswered questions I had leading up to this point have been answered, there have been quite a few twists I never would have expected…and yet, it was perfect.
“You look so normal. It’s hard to believe there’s something in there that’s going to steal you away from me.”
See, perfect. Perfectly heartbreaking. Perfectly soul-soothing. Just perfect. It hit every emotional cord within me as I read and I found that no matter how much I had to get “done” around the house…my mind, my heart never left this book. To me, that speaks volumes.
“I will never get tired of loving this girl. She is the reason I’m still breathing – still fighting. She taught me how to love, how to allow myself to be loved…she taught me how to feel. I owe my whole life to this beautiful woman and yet I would give it up in a heartbeat to save her.”
Nicola, I don’t care how “boring” your life is in reality…this story was amazing. Thank you for sharing a world of addiction, love, loss, forgiveness, triumphs, trials, laughter, friendship, family, second chances, heartbreak, healing, hope, life, and death. I will remember this series forever…it’s forever imprinted in my mind and my heart & I never plan on letting that go. Bravo.
