She’d do anything for her boy…
Vanessa Sawyer knows all about pain. She’s felt it every day since marrying the boy who fathered her baby in high school. All he’s meant are broken bones, broken heart and broken dreams. But he also brought her the love of her life. When her son Wren was born, her baby boy was her salvation.
Vanessa watches Wren grow and become a young man she can be proud of. Until one night everything changes, including Wren. One night that her son refuses to speak of. Now Vanessa can’t rest, not until she uncovers the secret that her son has been hiding from her.
Will she find the answers she’s searching for or will her quest for the truth take her to a dark place where all hope is lost?
One evil act. One tragedy. Lives destroyed forever.
Wow, what an intense read Never Ever Tell is. I am still shaking long after finishing the final page. It is highly emotive, harrowing and heartbreaking all rolled into one. Make sure you have the tissues handy while reading this one, you are definitely going to need them!
Kirsty has crafted a very dark plot that for some readers, may be hard to read. It deals with issues of rape and extreme domestic violence, which at times is quite graphic and confronting, but there is a magnetic pull that keeps you wanting to turn the pages to see how it is all going to unfold.
This is the first book that I have read of Kirsty’s and I was really impressed with her writing, which kept me very engaged throughout. Due to its nature, it mustn’t be easy writing these types of stories, living and breathing its darkness until it is complete, but Kirsty takes it all in her stride and has delivered quite a remarkable read.
Never Ever Tell will have you gripped from start to finish as you are taken on one very emotional roller coaster ride. At times it will have your heart pounding and gasping for breath, as the tension rises all in the lead up to a shocking revelation that you don’t see coming!
With its strong plot and characters that are complex, believable and very well written, Never Ever Tell will capture your attention and have you reading well into the night. A well put together story that all comes together through writing that is both powerful and compelling, it really is a must read.
