Amazon Book Description:
"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."
When I picked this book a while back for our January book club read of the month I really didn't know what to expect. After reading this book words like DEEP and RAW come to mind. The issues Mrs. Stunich touched on in this book are serious and you don't see addressed very often. At least I haven't read a book that screams "Calling all sex addicts"! No but in all seriousness the book had me drawn in from the first chapter.
This is the story of Never and Ty. Both are seriously messed up with some pretty deep/dark issues. Both use sex as an outlet to numb the pain there feeling inside. What they don't expect however is to fall in LOVE. When you have lived most of your life in the dark, when the light finally starts to shine through its takes a while for you to adjust.
Mrs. Stunich did a great job of taking us on Never and Ty's journey toward the LIGHT. Along the way the BUMPS they had were quite entertaining at times and very sad at others. These are two young people that are seriously broken (lives of neglect, prostitution, an witnessing tour father's murder....geez) but with a great gay best friend, a crazy SEX group therapy counselor and each other,they fight for there lives back!
Out of all the issues that were discussed in this book child prostitution really stuck out to me. I really liked this book BUT I wish we could have heard more of Ty's story (what was told, HEARTBREAKING). I can't wait to read book #2 to see how the rest of Ty and Never's story continues. This was a quick and good read. Good job Mrs. Stunich!
