Delightful Page Turner Never Let Go is the first in a series featuring Amina Jefferson, a recently-divorced African American woman struggling to keep her life together and move on into new romance while battling the intrigues of her controlling, deranged ex-husband Tim. Narrator Amina’s conversational style is direct and engaging, and you find yourself page-turning because her narration of her life, by turns comic, puzzled, and insightful, is always fascinating. Comedy can unexpectedly give way to moments of eros or terror, but at every step of the way you realize you’re completely involved with the lives of the four-dimensional characters in this novel, from overbearing cousin Monica to enigmatic new boyfriends Clayton and Anthony. There’s also a careful build up to a suspenseful conclusion that doesn’t quite go the way you’d expect, as ex-husband Tim is the one person you don’t want to get completely involved with! I found, as the author warned in her introduction, that this book really is quite unlike anything I've ever read. I certainly learned a lot about the tactics of women's clothes I never would have suspected! Overall I found the book delightful; it leaves several plot lines hanging tantalizingly, suggesting intriguing ways forward to more novels about Amina. Will she now choose the insanely busy, sometimes distant, yet strangely calm and grounded businessman Clayton, or will she further probe her feelings for the moody policeman Anthony? Or will something spring from her supposedly platonic relationship with childhood friend DeWayne? It’s a measure of the force of this book that you really do want to quickly move on to Book Two, Never Say Never, to find out. review by Michael D. Smith

5 star rating for this book! There was nothing to connect to, not the storyline nor the characters. Amina's character was so bland, an ex-wife trying to escape her ex-husband's threats and abuses. She was so willing to hop into bed with anybody she met. Even that was bland. This was so dissappointing, certainly not my type of genre. If this author is going to charge $9 for this, he needs to step up to the plate and write with more passion, sophistication, create a better style of writing, give the readers something to hang on to. This gives me the impression that he didn't give it his best shot. I have read excellent books where the author was passionate in his writing and willing to please his readers, and for even less money. I am a voracious reader, so I feel that I know when I am truly enjoying a good book and this was not the case.

This is an outstanding and well written debut novel for Amy and I look forward to more from her. I am so glad I gave this newbie a chance and my girl delivered. While reading I went through every possible emotion and loved her style of presentation like she was talking directly to me (or any other reader) at times. She touched on an interesting story line which affects so many women , showing when most assume that because the parties are not living under the same roof or are no longer a couple that all is well. She showed her readers otherwise. Well done Amy
