3 - "There was never anything ordinary about our relationship." Stars.

This is the first book I have read by Rosie Miles. It was well written and pretty entertaining in an action packed sort of way. But oddly the author had a really weird knack of giving away exactly what was going to happen next in the previous paragraphs.

I didn’t mind it so much as the story was pretty fast paced, and not only are you reading of the reconnection between Quinn and Maggie after she has spent the last 12 months un

Geez, I just don't know about this one! I hate that that statement is my opening line for my review but that is really how I feel about Never Surrender. When I first read the blurb for this one, I was intrigued. I thought that the whole thing sounded interesting and I was excited to crack it open. Well, not literally since I read it on my Kindle but you know what I mean.

I'll just cut to the chase and get down to business on this one. I'll be honest

An exciting suspense filled romance that kept me entertained. Slightly predictable but overall a good read.

When Maggie Sinclair left without a word a year ago for another undercover assignment, Quinn McCade didn't think he's ever see her again. Now she's calling and asking for his help. He should say no but his heart won't let him.

Maggie is desperate, obviously, she called Quinn. The one man who probably hates her more than any one else. He's also the only one she can trust. She's been working o

Never Surrender is the debut novel from author Rosie Miles and is a romantic suspense standalone about two former partners and lovers who, after a year of separation, work together to bring down a man involved in sex slavery. This was a really great and strong story that kept everything fast-paced while amping up the tension as the plot to paint Maggie Sinclai

This book has a great premise. Maggie is an undercover cop. Quinn was her boyfriend and he is also a cop. Their relationship ended when he didn't approve she became an undercover cop. She asks for his help and together start living a lot of dangerous situations. The romance is very nice.

This book has a lot of action and romance but the characters didn't work so well for me. I wish I could feel them a little more.

What a brilliant debut novel from Rosie Miles. Suspense, romance, and all round action - what else could you want. I can see why this won a Ruby award (Romance Writers of Australia) in 2016. From the beginning you are pulled into a world of intrigue, lost love, and suspicion. The only person Maggie can trust is her one time lover, Quinn but will this case the beginning of something new, or will old arguments tear them apart forever. Definitely worth the read to find out.

NEVER SURRENDER was a suspense-filled and fast-paced surprise, a bit predictable at times but entertaining nonetheless. It took several tries for me to get into it, but once I did, it was tense ride to the end.

Maggie Sinclair has been undercover for the last twelve months as part of a police investigation into an underage prostitution/sex slavery ring and has been successful in getting two of the girls out but her suspicion that her cover has been blown has her reaching out to the one man she tr

So this book had a couple of things going for it when it comes to me as a reader, I like books with second chances, I like books where there is action/mystery, and I like books with cops. So this book had a lot of things I generally like in books.

I enjoyed this book. It took me a little bit to get into it but once I got going on it, it was really good. The story flowed smoothly and kept your attention. This was a first read for me by Rosie Miles but I was pleasantly surprised at how well this story flowed.

Suspenseful, full of Action & some Romance!!!

This book is about two people that were partners and also lovers but something happened and they went their own way. Maggie ends up needing help because the person that she ended up needing to report to was MIA. Quinn didn’t think that he would ever hear from Maggie but from the moment that he saw her all those feelings rushed back in.

This was a pretty quick read for me but I really enjoyed it. Now it was a fairly typical read but I am going to be honest and say that I have read several books in the last couple of months that have been a bit typical. Maggie is an undercover cop while Quinn is her ex-boyfriend  who also happens to be a cop. When Maggie goes undercover they break up and Quinn doesn't approve. However when Maggie realizes that she needs help she turns to Quinn. Quinn doesn't hesitate to respond and to

Maggie and Quinn were a couple but have been apart for about a year. They fought over Maggie's insistence that she wanted to work undercover. Quinn knew the physical and emotional hazards of that kind off life and didn't want that for Maggie. She took his concern as an insult to her abilities and walked away without looking back...much. Now, Maggie has the undercover career she wanted, but it has cost her too much and left her in danger without backup. She does the only thing she can think to do ...more

This book pulls you in almost from the first page and keeps you hooked through most of the book!

Maggie is in trouble, having gone undercover to bust a prostitution ring, she uncovers crimes much worse than prostitution. When things fall apart, Maggie is stuck undercover; unable to trust anyone in the department she turns to the one man who swore she would never ask for help from.

The back story between Quinn and Maggie is not revealed for quite some time in this story, so you are left trying to p

Never Surrender is a debut novel. For the most part, I enjoyed the story. Maggie is a cop who went undercover a year earlier despite her fellow cop and lover's advice. They severed ties and now she has reached out asking him for help.She has been undercover at a club trying to catch the owner who is stealing and selling young girls.

I enjoyed the premise of this book, it's a second chance book, but has a ton of action and suspense packed into the middle and end. I found the beginning a little dry, and had a little bit of trouble sticking with it, but I'm glad I did! The action really picks up and led to a mildly predictable end.

I enjoyed the heat between Maggie and Quinn, the chemistry was hot! The sex scenes were well written, and the overall relationship, although fast-paced was believable.

I've always vowed that I wouldn't give a boyfriend a second chance. If we couldn't work things out, then it wasn't meant to be. Characters have to prove themselves to me in a second chance romance, for me to hope they get back together. By the end of Never Surrender, I was cheering for reconciliation.

Rosie Miles debut novel fits neatly in the romantic suspense category romance box. It met my expectations. The romance side was a little predictable, but I would have been unhappy if it had gone any

I received this Arc from NetGalley for an unbiased review

Police officer Maggie Sinclair doesn't want to depend on anyone especially Detective Quinn Mccade so when she goes deep undercover and realizes she is alone in this.

She has to make a fast decision and decides to call McCade. The heat is now on and you will not be able to put this down. The suspense kills you as well as the storyline. You can;t trust anyone and you will not believe how it ends.

Rosie Miles' debut novel is a page turner. Threats without names and faces come at Maggie from all directions. The only safe place for her and her witness is with the cop she walked out on. Sure, there are times you want to throttle Maggie, but that's what makes this flawed character likable and readable.

I was given an ARC of Never Surrender from NetGalley for an honest review and this is my review.
This book was okay for me. It was all very predictable and I had it pretty well figured it about half way through so I just finished it to be sure I was right. It just did not work that well and was a bit boring.
I am only going to give this book three out of five stars.
