Never Let You Go is written as a flashback style chapters between past and present time. It is also a two part book dividing the story between past a present. Confusing? Yeah, it could be at times. I wasn’t a fan of the flashback chapters and alternating point of view. I would have been happy with the different POVs, but mixing in the different time lines made it a little confusing some times.
Part one of the book was the best part of the story in my opinion. You gradually see how Andrew changes and starts to lose control of his emotions. The writing was well done and let the reader feel like they were part of the story. Part two was a little weak for me. The characters were off and felt a little “off” compared to the first half. I felt that the story went off in another direction, but still an okay path that had me continuing the read.
Overall, it was an okay book. It wasn’t my favorite book this year, but it wasn’t the worst. I can honestly say that I would try another book by this author though.
