The truth hurts, they say—and my pain cuts deep. While I was falling for Ethan, he was deceiving me the entire time. He held a huge secret, protected by his lies. When I discovered what he was hiding, the truth shook my world, threatening to ruin us forever. Ruin me. But I soon realized that what we share can't be destroyed.
The connection between us is too strong. It always has been. I can't deny him any longer. And I can't deny my truth: I'm in love with Ethan.
I don't want to let him go.
While we're trying our best to make this relationship work, other forces are fighting against us. My family, who wants to keep me safe. The media obsessed with my tragic past. The public that feeds off of it. Even Ethan's father—the man who nearly destroyed me all those years ago. He's doing his best to finish the job.
Despite my love for Ethan, the doubts creep in, clouding my mind. Is he worth the pain? Will our love survive, or will we have no choice but to end it—end us—once and for all?

Never Let You Go is the heart-wrenching conclusion to Ethan and Katie's story. It's full of angst, love and mystery and IT WILL CRUSH YOUR SOUL!! Seriously, I don't recommend reading it over your lunch hour like I did. It made it impossible to function as an adult and had me all teary-eyed in the office, which is unacceptable. There were tears, puffy eyes, red cheeks - it's a good thing I could lock myself in my office until I recovered enough to fake it through the rest of the day.
But I digress... there are no words to describe the emotional rollercoaster of this series. I can't recommend it enough, and this is from the girl who generally avoids books with this much angst. Once again, Monica Murphy has taken me out of my comfort zone and I love and hate her for it!
