“I wasn’t ever going to give up, Kal, but I was starting to think you were gone for good,” he whispered in my ear, his fingers gently squeezing my neck.

“I never thought I’d come back either,” I said against his chest. “There are a lot of things that keep me from being happy, but the biggest one is just me. I have to let that go, let go of the fear of losing love, or having love taken from me.” … “Love is supposed to make us feel good, not make us afraid.” … “I’m so tired of being afraid.”

3.5 stars. Dammit, cliffhanger! Why do you do this to me? Told only in h’s POV, which pissed me off because her hot/cold/push-the-H-away character gave me no relief from her annoying POV. But... alas, I need to get to the next book cos I’m dying to know what happens to these two after such a tragic ending.
Because it’s a spinoff story, I didn’t have to read the 1st 3 books in this series and was able to understand the story just fine.

This book was okay. The heroine got on my nerves. I would have liked it more if it didn't end on a cliffhanger, I refuse to buy the next book!!!

Wow. I am totally wrecked right now. Beautiful. Amazing. Fantastic. The story line was incredible, so believable.

Kalli spent her life keeping a distance from everyone. After her dad left when she was little. She does not make friends or do boyfriends. With a job that keeps her moving. She never stands still. When tragedy strikes she is left with putting someone else needs above all others. Kalli will do it for him. Even if loving anyone else will never happen.

Kalli was rough

Never Standing Still by the very talented Anie Michaels is absolutely without a doubt fantastic!!!
Kalli and Riot
Where do I even start? I fell in love with Kalli and Riot's story from the very beginning. They are two very genuine people. These characters are very real and you can feel their emotions throughout the entire book. The way Anie Michaels writes, she places the reader right into the story. The story flows very nicely and kept my attention the entire time. To be honest, I couldn't put m

Ok so I'm not sure where to start with this review.....
This book simply had all the feels a great book needs....Kalli never stands outside attachments that is until Riot. Riot was a fantastic character...strong...resilient....kind & caring, he was everything you want in a male lead and he never let Kalli forget him...he was tenacious enough that she had no choice but to give in....eventually.
But in the midst of this book their was one star for me and t

Where to start? Anie Michaels knows what she's doing, that's for sure. I've read a few of her other books and loved them so reading this one was a no brainer. But wow, you are taken for a ride with Kalli and Riot and it's not a pretty one! I loved both Kalli and Riot from the very beginning and I couldn't wait for them to get it together. But what kind of story would that be? So we are taken on a roller coaster of emotions, not only from them but our emotions are everywhere as well! And just whe ...more
Damn, that was a great story! I love any book that has me thinking about all day long. I'm just going about my day, and the story just keeps playing a movie in my head...Love those books....although I'm heartbroken that it had to happen that way. What a well done tortured soul and a guy that wouldn't give up. That Riot is some good people, and ah, yum! If we could all be so lucky to be tied to that rope..but what a tragic ending. 23 days to find out the rest. now that will be torture.

This was the first book I read by this author and I am definitely putting her on my list. Can't wait for December 29 to read 'Never Tied Down'.

Anie Michaels is such a fabulous writer. Reading one of her books is such a joy for the senses. We met Kalli in the other books in the Never Series and she has always intrigued me. Something about her quietness always made you think she was holding herself back even from her best friend, Ella. Kalli has a lot of baggage that she carries with her and it's heartbreaking. She's successful and travels for work, but she rushes home to care for her brother and doesn't really live her life for herself. ...more

Never Standing Still is part of the Never series by Anie Michaels. It is the story of Ella’s good friend Kalli. It is book one of the Never duet within the series. Kalli has a life she keeps to herself. Her responsibilities weigh heavy on her, to the point that she keeps everyone at arm’s length and never lets a man into her heart. That is until she meets Riot. Struggling with her feelings and responsibilities, keeps Kalli questioning everything she does and feels. The end of the book unexpected ...more

Oh boy, as much as I loved this book and the story, Kalli annoyed the hell out of me. Okay, yeah you have a brother with a disability, but putting him before your own happiness can only get you so far, trust me I know, my own brother is disabled. And the way she always doubted Riot really pissed me off, and how she hid Marcus' existence from her close friends made it seem like she was embarrassed. Yeah, I get it, you don't want pity from everyone you tell but I mean, you should at least tell peo ...more

A great novel. I didn't read the first three but this book can stand alone as it develops the main characters and the supporting ones. This book was an easy read but also a very interesting one. I couldn't put it down!

Definitely not my last book of Anie Michaels. This was beautifully written. A little pain at the end but you'll definitely be wanting more. I, myself, need more Riot in my life. Sigh.

“We could be so wonderful,” he said, his voice so low and pleading"

This book is one of the most transparent and honest books I've read, emotions and feelings are so clear, the characters are adorable, the situations are very credible and love has a new meaning! The story of these characters is full of different emotions, each page takes you to a new deep feeling and in some beautiful moments.

I love him so hard. It’s funny, his name that is. It completely contradicts his personality.He is sweet, so sweet. While my first choice is a sometimes over-bearing alpha male book boyfriends but I fell so hard for Riot. He is sweet, caring he’s playful with hints of a cocky side to him sometimes. He’s honest, hot and did I mention I love him?

“He was absolutely breathtaking. His eyes. My God, his eyes. I’d never seen eyes that color. They were golden, a shiny carame

Anie has done it once again...she has cut deeply into my heart with another emotional ride and I love her for it. Her writing is flawless and beautiful. You meet Kalli throughout the Never Series but you do not need to read it to read her story.

Kalli is a costume designer and takes her all over the place for work on T.V and movie sets but the one that changes her life happens to be a last minute job on a music video. When she meet the male lead for the video she feels something there but she is

Never Standing Still is my favorite Anie Michaels book to date. From the moment I started reading I could tell this book was going to take me for a ride on a rollercoaster of emotions, but the direction Anie Michaels took Kalli’s story was completely unexpected. I loved every twist and turn of this heartfelt story, finding myself unable to stop reading. Kalli and Riot have a chemistry that absolutely smolders, giving Never Standing Still an intensity that is utterly addictive.

I received this book from Enticing Journey Book Promotions in return for a fair and honest review.

Kalli lived a glamourous life to those that didn’t know her. She was responsible for dressing artists for tv shows, movies, and videos which involved shopping, lots of it and meeting famous celebrities. Little did she know that her job would put her in touch with an up and coming actor, Riot, who she couldn’t keep herself from. He was different. He wanted to break down her walls and get to know the

I have purposely not write a review after I read it so I could fully think it through. To be honest, as I am writing this review, I started at the end first like a person reads the book's ending first before reading the first chapter.

First of all, I'm grateful for the opportunity to have read Never Standing Still in exchange for an honest review! I saw a lot of great feedback on Goodreads; needing tissues because it was a very emotional ride. I couldn't be more excited to start reading the book!

When Kalli Rivers is hired as the costume designer for the latest "It" girl's music video, she is thrilled! She knows what a great opportunity it is for her career and is prepared to work hard and prove herself. What Kalli doesn't count on is Riot Bentley, the video's male lead. He is an up and coming model and actor with an eye for Kalli. Riot soon learns that Kalli has high walls built up and breaking through them might be harder than he thought.
Kalli was an interesting character. She

“Her words did nothing short of cut me open.  I didn’t know what it felt like to have someone love me that way.  Love, in my experience, was a hardship, a responsibility, something we carried around on our backs.  But Ella spoke of love like it lifted her up and I couldn’t understand.  How could our views of love be so different?  Why couldn’t I let love heal me instead of hurt me?” 0 likes
