It was a good book with real problems. It made me think about both sides of the aregument on whether or not to date outside your race.

All too often successful women, regardless of race, find themselves making the decision between family and occupation. It always seems that one has to be placed on hold in other for the other to be successful. In the business world it seems that the African American woman and the Caucasian man are on a level playing field. However, being that it is considered "normal" for the man to be the bread winner of the household, he has no problem with his successes interfering with his personal relationships. On the contrary, women seem to always threaten men who have less than them when it comes to any type of success. This book hits on these issues, among many others. I am happy for Desiree and the fact that she found a man who was willing to treat her like a queen, regardless of race. What I wanted more of was the story behind Marcus Jr. Is he going to get to see and develop a relationship with his son? Will he get his life back on track? What is to become of him? Hopefully the author will dedicate a sequal to him. This book had me wanting more. I truly enjoyed this good read.

This novel has it ALL. an interracial couple deals with realistic problems from the outside world and the supporting characters add flavor to the story. A quick smooth read. Need I say it? A movie should be made out of this.

'Never Say Never' is a refreshing debut with a intriguing mix of drama and romance. Michele Cameron weaves a CAPTIVATING novel that touches on several HOT BUTTON social issues, such as sexual harassment, religious beliefs, office romance, interracial relationships, and divorced parents with children. Mrs. Cameron gives a VIVID glimpse into these issues and she delivers it in a responsible, mature, and ENTERTAINING manner. Tyler is quite the thoughtful, attentive, supportive, 'take-no-non-sense' gentleman. And he's not ONLY good to Desiree, but he's good for her. Desiree is afraid to LEAP into another romance, but she's especially hesitant about becoming involved with Tyler because one he's her boss and two regardless of how far we've come in this day and age, interracial relationships are still very much TABOO. As they struggle through their issues, I found the budding relationship between Tyler and Desiree to be an INTENSE, heartwarming, sensual and at times even AMUSING ride. Despite the sometimes slow-paced flow, I was still CAUGHT up in the romance and the tension-filled opposition that Tyler and Desiree encountered not just from strangers, but also from their co-workers and their families. Will Desiree allow an intolerant society and the possible disapproval of her family to DICTATE who she loves or will she fight for the true love she's FINALLY discovered with Tyler?!! So, once again despite the typos and/or editing issues, which sadly seems to be the norm in so many romance novels today, I still enjoyed this tale and will keep an eye out for more of Mrs. Cameron's work.

I was hesitant about reading this book because I had seen some bad reviews and also interracial romance sometimes doesn't hit the spot for me. The only bad thing that I can say that I didn't like was Desiree at the beginning of the story because she acted very weird and her personality didn't stand out to me and plus the story was strangely bizarre how the author started the book. Overall, the story was written well, great characters, and insightful thought to the lives of the secondary characters. I love to admit that Tyler was the bomb and he is the best white caucasian I had ever read. He would be someone that I will take home to mama. The main characters Desiree and Tyler had such a bond that I felt the love and passion that they had for one another.

If you are a fan of contemporary romance, read this book. I always enjoy reading a book that makes you feel you can like and understand the characters. I liked Desiree's ambition and her ability to stand her ground to decide what is right for her. I will continue to look for this author's work in the future.

This novel was one of the best I have read lately. Ms. Cameron takes you through a journey of two young people following their heart and rejecting the racial biases of their families,friends and co-workers. As you read this book you forget that these two people are from different races and you focus on wanting them to be happy. EXCELLENT BOOK. Can't wait to read Ms. Cameron's next novel.

In her first novel Michele Cameron offers strong opinion and inspiring insight to the various racial issues African Americans face in our current society.

I thoroughly enjoyed this novel! I thought the story flowed very well from beginning to end. This novel showcased an interracial relationship to the point where you didn't focus on their race just two people falling in love despite their cultural backgrounds. The love sceens were very romantic and passionate. I would definitely recommend this novel! I can't wait for the next book by Ms. Cameron. I checked out the back of the book and noticed another novel by Ms. Cameron will be released October 2008. Can't wait!

I loved the way Ms. Cameron built the relationships between Desiree and her sisters, brother, family, and her new love interest, Tyler. This book was enjoyable to read, and I look forward to seeing what wonderful relationships she cooks up next!

I loved it from beginning to end. As a white woman, I have noticed that you see more black men with white women than vice versa. This novel gives insight as to what African-American and men feel about interracial relationships. I loved the story line and feel that any woman of any race can identify with the issues of finding their soulmate. This novel bridges the separation of color and makes one realize that all women and men crave the same thing, love and contentment. This novel is a keeper!

I am a teacher who reads alot of various types of books as a hobby. I read alot! Michele Cameron, in her first novel, has truly captured the essence of her characters. She has developed her story in a way that is both captivating and full of energy and she has gotten your attention with her inclusion of many here-and-now social situations that trouble us all.

I was blessed to be a member of a book club where I got a copy of the novel before it was shipped out. It is the best thing that I've read in years and not only I think so. Another independent review board gave it a four star rating. The heroine in the story has old school values that make her very choicy when it comes to dating. However, she is somewhat immature in her way of thinking as to what the perfect man is. She grows in the novel and is rewarded with by finding true happiness. I don't want to spoil the book for any reader but any male or female who has been in an okay relationship but thinks that there could be more out there for them, this is the novel to read. The love scenes combined with real intimacy makes every woman long to be the main character. Also, the subpolot of what makes races different and the same, is outstanding. This is a quick and easy read which makes a person rooting for the main characters throughout the book.
