As she begins to unravel the truth about who Xander is and the details surrounding her family, she discovers that she might just be the key to saving everything...

And, most importantly, she finds that there has always been someone by her side who would never let her fall...

    Looking forward to book 2 after reading this one...

    Skye lost her parents 10 years ago but doesn't remember them or much of how it happened; only what bits the police were able to tell her. And it wasn't much. Since then she has been living in group homes because no one wants a little girl whose past is surrounded by such grief and is plagued with nightmares.

    When she meets Xander her hopeless life seems to fall into line. Finally she feels at peace even though her life is anything but. When she is with him she doesn't fear the dreams. She doesn't fear her uncertain future...her life seems to make a little bit of sense.

    I was really taken with this story. I enjoy books that deal with parallel universes and other dimensions. Especially when they cross over to a simpler time. But I felt the first of the story was a bit too rushed. It would have been nicer to get to know some of the characters in the beginning before being thrown into a whirl wind of a story.

    Once the journey takes them to over to the new dimension, the story seems to take off from there and things really get interesting. I would be sitting, wondering about these characters when I wasn't with them. What was going on with the dreams? Can they really trust certain people? Will Xander and Skye be able to be together?

    I adored Xander and his love for Skye. You can tell he loves her so much, even if it isn't supposed to be. Skye wasn't too bad a character herself. I really was expecting a more high maintenance, drama queen after the way the books started. But I was happy to see she wasn't that way at all. I guess you can take the girl out of Tyalbrook but you can't take Tyalbrook out of the girl.

    All in all, this was a great read that kept my interest and had me pulled in from the beginning. Not to mention the romance was spot on. I look forward to reading book 2, NEVER LET YOU GO, and seeing what happened with Skye.

    Fav lines...

    I'd never wanted anything like I wanted Xander. I wanted to stay by his side forever. The feelings I got when he was near, the tingling warmth in my heart, in my chest...my whole body sang when he was near. That couldn't be nothing. It couldn't be just gratitude.

    ***

    I fell asleep with the taste of his lips still on mine.

    I love this book! It immediately grabbed my attention and didn't let go until I finished it (which only took 2 sittings!). Skye is an awesome heroine- she's strong but not without weaknesses, good but not perfect, lovable but stubborn. I love her because she's realistic. I feel like she could be my Bestie lol. And of course there's Xander... *swoon* 'nough said. ;) I also like that the plot is unique and full of twists. I hate a story that I can figure out the ending to, and that is not a problem here, trust me! I definitely recommend it!

    This story had so much variety. Do you like Fantasy? It has it. Do you like Paranormal? It has it. Do you like contemporary fiction or do you prefer a more simpler time? It has both. Adventure? It has that too. How about Forbidden Love? It definitely has that. The title is perfect, and I love the cute story behind it. It was easy to get caught up in the character's lives. There is still so much to learn about the characters and what's going on within their world. They all have secrets. Most seem to have a hidden agenda. It's impossible to know who to trust. As you learn one secret (or think you have), it builds on to something bigger with even more secrets and mystery. Never Let You Fall kept me wanting more and more. Never Let You Fall by Michele G. Miller was provided to me by the author for review. The opinions are my own.

    Never Let You Fall is a captivating and riveting story about a young woman, Skye, who yearns for someone by her side. Being an orphan, she just wants a family, someone who will love her no matter what. Skye never realized there was a world out there, full of demons. Demons who are bent on killing her. After a party one night she sees one, but the next thing she knows she wakes up in a hotel room. Her rescuer is Xander. He is gorgeous and everything thing inside of Skye reaches for him. She finds out that he has been watching over her for the past two years. Instead of finding that creepy, she is comforted that there has been someone there for her, she has not been alone.

    The connection between Skye and Xander is immediate and strong. They both try to fight it, but in the end they cannot out run their feelings for each other. The danger, romance, action, and suspense of this story will have you turning page after page, devouring the words just to see what will happen next. The characters are well written and you immediately start to care for Skye right from the beginning. Never Let You Fall is a story about finding love, meeting your fate, and reclaiming your destiny! A must read!

    I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    Just like in real life, the concept "first impressions matt

    Just like in real life, the concept "first impressions matter the most," apply to the book world too. To me (as we all know) covers tend to be a BIG player in how "excited" about the book I get. Honestly, I will change my reading list solely based on a cover. Sad but true. I loved Never Let You Fall's cover. Everything about it and combined with the blurb (another slice of perfection) had me counting down the days until I was able to dive in. Another area first impressions are key in books, is when a reader is introduced to the character's for the first time.








    **Loved Skye from the inside out and and truly appreciated such a refreshing leading lady**




    Skye is thrown onto a path she never expected and into a world she never considered and I enjoyed everything about her journey. She was so realistic and NOT a goody goody, which is a common theme in YA books. That for me, made Skye that much more realistic and enabled Michelle to capture my heart and attention within the first few chapters. Her partying habits are just a way cope with feelings she hasn't accepted yet, things she doesn't understand. And when she learns about what she must do, she questions it (like MOST people would do) and allows herself time to adjust. Even with Xander backing her up and protecting her, Skye manages to still be strong and learn to fight for herself and her destiny. I love her. She was unique to the YA genre and definitely raised the bar in my opinion. 




    "He didn't relax his stance, and he didn't say a word. He just let me wrap myself around him." 
    -Skye




    **Yeah, you just need to read Never Let You Fall so you can feel the fireworks and chemistry between Xander and Skye**




    Xander is everything you could want and desire. His love for Skye even when things get complicated for her and exciting twisty things happen (like that vagueness-no spoilers. You know my rules) made my heart melt. The entire book had my heart melting and feeling like it was in a pair of vice grips. I had to re-read some of the dialogue and moments of reflection just so I could feel the impact again. Michelle inserted those "heart wrenching, hold your breath, squeal for joy at the sound of those words" moments in the perfect places! The relationship between all the characters are balanced so well and really strengthen the plot line of the story. I cannot wait for book two so I can hopefully catch another peek at a couple of the supporting characters.




    **Never Let You Fall has some of the best scenes/moments I have read this year! I could feel Skye and Xander's emotions like they were actually tangible**




    This is not all Romance either! The plot starts from the very beginning, you're dropped into the action right along with Skye and Michelle wastes no time getting things stared. She did an amazing job developing the plot and throwing in twists and adrenaline pumping moments where needed. The story kept me turning the pages and refusing to do homework. I could not stop. When it ended I was so sad, like epic status sad for two reasons. 




    A. Never Let You Fall ends, it just ends on a SUPER pivotal plot moment, I am not being dramatic. Even though it was an amazing ending and I can totally understand why it ended there...the book nerd in me was a little peeved. So Michelle if you happen to read this, feel free so send me what would be "the next chapter." B. The other reason I was mad was because it ended. At some point in the middle of the night, my kindle said 99% and no matter how much I shouted in my head "No." I need book two now. Please. I can't wait to delve into book 2 and see how the ending of Never Let You Fall turns out. Plus there's a couple characters I'm not positive or confident where their loyalties lie and for me, that was just another stroke of genius for Michelle.

    Reviewer: Bex
    Rating: 4.5 out of 5 Fairies

    Never Let You Fall is a superb YA fantasy read, that was a welcome reminder of why I love this genre so much.

    From the opening, the author created a character and a scenario that was fascinating and captured my attention. She presents her protagonist, Skye, with a unique background and present; she is certainly an original character for this genre. This immediately piqued my interest.

    As the story unfolds, I was effectively engaged throughout by the character's dramas and endeavors, and once the author introduced Xander, the gorgeous protector, it didn't take me long to embrace my inner young-woman have get a new book crush.

    Michele G Miller's writing style is crisp and fluent. Never Let You Fall was easy to absorb and enjoy. The author's ability to create characters that you can relate to, have empathy for and actively cheer along was impressive.

    The change of setting was successfully managed. Michele G Miller created a world that was fun and fascinating to visit. Her descriptive style, in conjunction with her plot and character developments, produced a narrative that was enchanting to read.

    I cannot wait to read book two.

    I enjoyed reading this book. It was an interesting take on Demo

    I enjoyed reading this book. It was an interesting take on Demons and alternate realities. The author did a great job keeping the story flowing smoothly. There weren't many mistakes and the writing was good.

    I really liked the characters. Skye is in the dark about her past and she's had to toughen up since then, not trusting many people.

    When Demons come after Skye, she is thrust into a world she never imagined. Then she meets Xander. Yum. I love the Romeo and Juliet thing they have going on. The romantic tension was impressive.

    Overall, this was a great new adult read. I give this book four glittery stars for originality and just rocking in general!

    I can't say how much I LOVE this book!!!! Michele .... You have done such an astounding job in writing this!!! There
    are a couple of areas where there are letters/words left out, or where the punctuation needs to be corrected. But, I
    can't wait for the next book that will come!!!! I am jonesing (already) for the next book!!!!!

    The relationship between Skye & Xander is so lovely and complicating at the same time, but so true to life that I can 
    totally relate. I hope that in the next book we have more info on Rioden & Selene's relationship as well. The biggest
    question is ... Who can Skye ultimately trust? There are so many dynamics and different levels of relationships &
    intent in this book. I cannot wait until the next one comes. So, at this point, all I can say is .... Get to writing missy!!! :)
    I don't know how long I can wait for the next part of this story!!!! :)

    DISCLAIMER: This book was gifted to me by the author (through the Goodreads) website in exchange for an honest

    A good beginning to a highly anticipated series! Skye is a troub

    A good beginning to a highly anticipated series!
    Skye is a troubled young woman who has lived on the wrong side of the tracks her entire life. Raised in group homes from a very young age, she learned to be tough and to guard her heart – although no one ever really tried to penetrate it anyway. Enter hotness personified: Xander. His arrival into Skye’s life catapults her into a fantasy world that has to be seen to be believed, and brings her to another dimension called Tyalbrook. Skye’s destiny is revealed to her in bits and pieces, and like any girl she is resistant and unwilling to believe that she could be anything so special.
    I really enjoyed the descriptions of Tyalbrook, but would like to have seen more about the magical creatures that inhabit the land. Since this is just book 1 in a series, I would imagine that book 2 will probably include a lot more of those details to pacify readers like me, who enjoy all that mystical mumbo-jumbo. I think the last third of the book was the most exciting, and I think that some of the details and information about Earth-life could probably have been reduced in order to get Skye to Tyalbrook faster. Again….I like the mystical mumbo-jumbo.
    There were many times in the story that I wanted to absolutely throttle Skye – she was completely infuriating at times! It speaks well for author Michele Miller’s ability for character creation to make me want to strangle a fictional character. She seemed oddly pliable at times that I’d think she would kick up a fuss, and completely irrational at times that I felt she should just trust those around her!
    The ending of the story is emotional and prickly. Prickly because absolutely no loose ends are tied up! But emotional because with an ending like that, the reader is absolutely compelled to wait (impatiently!) for book 2.
    I would recommend this book for readers 15+ -- it’s nothing as racy as what they’ve probably seen on cable – it seems modest and honest.
