Simply put, Never Let Go is
an incredible book. M.L. Rhodesís deep characterization made
it easy to care about both Will and Ethan, and I was very
moved by their deep love for each other. They face serious
obstacles in the story, but I never stopped rooting for them.
Each step in the story brought me closer to the characters. I
laughed, cried, and rejoiced right along with them as the book
unfolded. One of the best things about the story was the way
Will and Ethan grew and changed. Ethan begins the story
self-assured and outgoing, but after his ordeal emerges much
different. Will starts out shy and biddable. Near the end,
they had somewhat of a role-reversal, and yet they were still
essentially the same men they had been beforeójust with more
facets. This is my first book by Ms. Rhodes, but it certainly
wonít be my last! Never Let Go is a sweet, hot,
vastly enjoyable story of finding love, losing it, and finding
it again. I definitely recommend this book. It will leave
you believing in second chances.
