Never Close Enough by Anie Michaels, Shaded Tree Photography

The last thing Ella Sinclair needed on her birthday was a cheating boyfriend, a broken heart, and a dead car battery in a remote beach town. At her greatest moment of need, a protective and sexy Porter Masters comes to her rescue. Ella takes a holiday week at the coast to discover herself and finds her attraction to Porter potent and undeniable. Uncertain of their future together, Ella struggles to open her heart to trust again.

Porter Masters takes care of his own: his single mother, his company, and now he's compelled to protect the beauty that walked into his world. Never one for relationships in his past, Porter discovers that he was waiting all along for Ella. As their time together comes to an end, will Porter fight for the woman who stole his heart? Porter will find a way to keep her, despite the obstacles.

I was gifted a copy of this book for an honest review, no other compensation was received on my part.  Ella Sinclair, a successful business woman, has planned a wonderful beach getaway for herself and her long time boyfriend Kyle for her birthday week thinking it will be the perfect time for them to reconnect and hopefully get back to where they need to be. Unfortunately, walking in on her Kyle with another woman in their bed puts an end to that. Deciding to go away to the beach herself  to gain a little perspective on her current situation her world is turned upside down when she meets Porter Masters. Porter has spent his life taking care of his mother after the sudden death of his father at the age of 12 and has never been interested in a long term relationship, until he meets Ella. The instant attraction felt between the two of them is apparent but are either of them ready for the intensity of how they feel for one another? Ella struggles with the intensity of her feeling for Porter after just meeting him, the worry of what everyone will think, and her inner need to feel desirable and appreciated again after not feeling that for so long with Kyle. She is a strong independent woman…who is stubborn as all get out and there were several times I would have really liked to slap her! Porter is just dreamy…though he came across as an ass at the very beginning I quickly fell in love with him. Intense, protective, romantic….and HOT!!! The chemistry between Porter and Ella will leave you breathless and tingly with anticipation.  This was an extremely well-written story that sucked me in from the very beginning. It had me laughing, irritated, and sighing dreamily from one page to the next…the sub characters are hilarious too! Just when everything seemed like it was going to work out and everyone would live happily ever after tragedy strikes! This is definitely a cliff hanger that had me soooo devastated…thank the good lord I had the sequel ready to dive right into! I recommend this for those 18 and up due to descriptive and graphic sex scenes. Go and one-click this baby if you want a hot and steamy love story with a fabulous cast of characters and a stunning twist…just be prepared to start Never Far Away (Book #2) immediately!

Not the whole story. This book doesn't have about HEA. There are 2 more books to read before you get to the end of Ella and Porter's story

Was interested from the very first chapter. However, I must say that through the whole book, everything was so perfect that I was just waiting for the "this is too good to be true" and then the HUGE event occurs at the end and the cliffhanger. I was dying!! I waited until I am nearly done with book two to write this review just so I could see if the book redeemed itself and I must say I was not disappointed in the least. Loving this series. Ella and Porter are such a great couple!

It was enchanting. Just the right amount of hands on love. The characters were very real. They were charming and believable. I read it from beginning to end in one sitting.

Having finished book one in this series, I am hooked and want to read the next book in the series. Porter and Ella's story is really an emotional journey.

I was immediately in love with Porter. Porter says all the right things and he wants to make you forget all the bad things. It was intense and a good read. I read the second book which wasn't my favorite and just purchased the third book. I felt like it could have ended with book 1 by adding just a few more chapters to wrap it up. Now I feel compelled to see where the rest of this story goes.

I got a little whiplash with this book. My emotions were on one heck of a roller coaster ride. One minute I was angry and sad for Ella because of what she’s put through and the next minute I’m getting all giddy when Porter appears all well-mannered and sh*t. Even though he was a bit of an a**hole at first you could still tell that he was going to be giving you some tingles. I really like how the author portrays these characters emotions. It always makes for a great story when you can feel the emotions as you read. The chemistry and passion was definitely there. By the end I wanted to toss my kindle across the room. Ella has some issues that aren’t quite going away as quietly as she expected.  It gets real interesting. Tension rises, anticipation kills you slowly and then holy hell cliffhanger!!! I know some people hate cliffhangers. I honestly love them. I especially love them when it’s done right. When it leaves you wanting to scream, punch sh*t, smash your kindle and crave some more. That’s exactly what Anie Michaels has done. Very much looking forward to reading Book 2.

The first 190 pages were predictable and sappy. I skipped through most of them only to find out there is a second book. Sorry cant read anymore!
