I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
Never Doubt Me is the unforgettable follow up to book one, I Stand Before You. This intense and awe-inspiring book will move you. It's story and it's characters are completely captivating. Putting it down is simply just not an option.
"Life binds. Death shatters."
Chase's brother, Will ends up staying in Harmony Creek and that stirs up trouble for Chase and Kay. His decisions brings Chase's former life to light and everything that comes with it. As Chase tries to be a better man for Kay, his past is there taunting him, reminding him of the person he once was. He vows to be everything and more for Kay. Chase and Kay endure many ups and downs in this one. Their love is tested in ways unimaginable. But, when Chase makes a decision without Kay, their commitment to each other is threatened. Giving away the story and the events would be a complete disservice to the reader. The trials and tribulations they are faced with are not easy ones. Once you are wrapped into this story it will not let you go until the very end. And even after, you are still left reeling.
"But most important, he gives me life."
Chase and Kay have this connection that is beyond words. Their souls are forever interconnected. You FEEL their love for each other. Despite their past and the pain endured, Kay and Chase love with a love so intense. So genuine. So raw. So real. Their love knows no boundaries. Their love story continues with Never Doubt Me. There is SO much more to Chase and Kay we get to see and it is completely beautiful. Even as life continues to throw things in their way, their love and admiration for each other pushes through it all.
"The sincerity and pure emotion in Chase's eyes as he was gazing up at me touched my soul."
My heart still continues to beat over this series, the emotion, the intensity of it all. The passion of this story. It is completely breathtaking. The writing flawless. And the storytelling? Completely captivating. If you loved the first book in this series, this one will leave you reeling. Without giving the story away, this is not your typical read. It is SO much more than that. What Chase and Kay have to endure is not what most young couples experience as the continue to fall in love and their relationship grows. I love the realness factor of this story. The author holds nothing back. She goes where many stories don't go. Chase's past is not pretty, and it's not painted as such. Kay's guilt continues to way heavily on her. This is the kind of story that you EXPERIENCE and FEEL. Their love sees through pain and darkness. It endures.
"Never doubt me."
Chase's love for Kay never wanes. It never falters. He chooses love. Always. Even in his decision at the end. He still held Kay above everything. His love for her surpasses everything. Even himself. But Kay is so much stronger than Chase thinks. He must learn he can never doubt her. Never doubt her love for him. Never doubt that her heart beats for him. And him only. Her love is with him. At all times. He is her home. And with him she will always be. While this story doesn't end on a cliffhanger per se, Chase and Kay are not finished. This beautiful story of love, forgiveness, and redemption surpassed all my expectations. Once again, I didn't read this book. I LIVED it.
