Shygirl: Reading After Midnight

I will read anything I can get my hands on. Seriously.

 Most books I read are reviewed for Harlequin Junkie, but I'll have an occasional independent or author requested review that I'll post.

Oh The Feels... Monica Murphy Does It Again With This Sequel

Never Let You Go - Monica  Murphy

What an incredibly fitting and compelling ending to this two-part saga. Never Let You Go was everything I had hoped for, emotionally rich and as well-thought-out as all of Monica Murphy’s other books I’ve read in the past. Oh the feels…

‘He gave me light when all I’d ever felt was darkness.’

Okay, so I have to caution readers of a few things. First: this is part two of Katherine and Evan’s story and you MUST read book one first or you’ll miss big chunks of their journey. Second: there was a dark undertone to this book (just like with the first book) as it dealt with kidnapping, rape, emotional abuse and depression. And third: toward the last quarter or so of the book we got serial killer/rapist Aaron’s POV. Needless to say it got a bit intense, as we saw exactly how twisted he was during his narrative. But I thought adding his POV, as well as that of journalist Lisa Swanson, made a huge difference in how I viewed each character and what I thought the outcome might be.
