Tasting Never, a New Adult Novel Recommended for Ages 18 and Up
“Never Ross wants to be loved.
It’s that simple, but it’s not that easy.”
Never is a girl with a broken soul who doesn’t date nice guys and can’t seem to go to bed at night without crying herself to sleep. She doesn’t need any complications in her life, especially not when they’re attached to a man that could be her emotional twin.
Ty McCabe can’t stand Never the first time he meets her. He’s aware that the feeling’s mutual and the two don’t think they’ll ever see each other again, but when fate takes a hand and puts them both in the wrong place at the wrong time, Ty and Never form a tentative friendship that opens the door on their dark sides and shows them what it’s like to live in the light.
“Sometimes, the only way to go forward, is to take a few, careful steps back.”
“Tell me, Never, do you still love him?”
Never Ross and Ty McCabe have come a long way – but they can’t stop now. Their pasts are still there, ready to sweep over and consume them if they don’t confront them. A visit to Never’s family seems like the first logical step, but will it make things better or worse? And what about Noah Scott? Ty is Never’s tortured other half, but can he also be the healing balm that she so desperately needs? With McCabe’s past still a virtual unknown, Never is going to have to make more than one decision capable of breaking both their hearts.
“Ty has changed; I have changed, and things are not always what they seem.”
Never’s past might be under control, but Ty’s is just starting to unravel. After receiving a phone call from his broken past, tensions run high between Never and Ty, especially with Never deciding to do something she’s never done and keep her pregnancy a secret.
While visiting a skeleton in his dark, dark closet, Ty is threatened by all that he once was and all that he thought he’d overcome. With his pain about to consume him, Never is the only one who stands between Ty and relapse, who can help him control his emotions and find peace, but is she up to it? After all, with two tortured souls desperate for a healing touch, are they more of a hindrance to one another than a help?
Love, marriage, and a baby. Three things that Ty and Never saw coming. It’s judgment time for both of them, time to see if the light really can overcome the dark. Here’s to hoping.
