Review: Never Let You Go by Andrew Grey (Forever Yours #2)


Note: This ARC was provided by Dreamspinner Press in exchange for an honest review.

We're back in Biglerville, Pennsylvania with the second Forever Yours story, Never Let You Go. Andrew Grey gives us another second chance romance, this time between Ashton Williams and Brighton Phillips. These two were childhood best friends who fell in love as teenagers and then promising to remain strong as a couple even as Ash decides to enlist with the Army. They make time for one another each and every time Ash returns to Pennsylvania, but then all communication from Ash ceases and Brighton and Ash's family aren't given much in terms of answers as to what has happened to Ash. But Ash does return, injured but alive, and it's Brighton who becomes his beacon...until he witnesses something that has him wondering if too much time has passed and if the man he loves has moved on with someone else, creating a family in the process. It takes an entire year before Brighton realizes that Ash is back in the country--back in their hometown. He's filled with anger and hurt as well as questions as to where Ash has been. Ash let Brighton go once before but this time, will there truly be no letting go?

The series starter, Can't Live Without You, faltered a bit for me, so I was tad nervous about this second book, hoping that it would be a less frustrating read. I'm happy to report that not only was this far from frustrating, it also had a hint of suspense to it, courtesy of someone from Ash's past coming back to haunt him and possibly having Brighton and others that Ash cares about. These two had frequent separations from one another, courtesy of Ash's being in the Army, but it's something as simple as an assumption that leads to one thinking he's been replaced and the other thinking something far worse. You know what they say about making assumptions, but seriously, people, COMMUNICATE! Though, I do get why Ash decided to walk away rather than confront Brighton. He was already going through PTSD, plus he was still recovering from his injuries. I adored this second chance romance of theirs, and while we do have characters from the first book here, this new set of characters more likable. Add that to a story that I enjoyed and felt invested in and that makes Never Let You Go a four-starred read. ♥
