Overall Opinion: This had a lot of potential, but sadly it missed the mark for me. There was an inconsistency in how the story was told (started with including secondary characters's perspectives, but changed to just include the h and H's) that became confusing, the h was pushing the H away until the end of the LAST CHAPTER, and there was the abrupt HEA where it was all tied in a pretty little bow. It wasn't for me, but others might like it.

Brief Summary of the Storyline: This is Rayni

I have already read one of the author's books earlier. So I wasn't totally new to her. But I do like to keep an open mind when going in for a new read though I was expecting a good read from her.

I liked the beginning of the book with the concept of introducing the hero and heroine first individually and then getting them to meet. What I had difficulty handling was the way they were portrayed at the start. I liked that Raynie was a free spirited person

The story of Rainie and Jared turned into a pretty good read. In the beginning, I wasn't sure I would like Jared. His character started off a little off, but he came into his own. He is one of the sweetest male leads I have read in a while. He is an architect. Rainie thinks he is the minister from the local church. He does let the misconception go on too long but it worked out. Every time he tries to tell the tru

One of the best love stories I ever read!
Let me start my review from a nice words Mr.Remmus said to Raynie.

"Even in romance novels, there's trouble. That's what keeps you reading. How boring would life be if it was nothing but Moonlight and Roses? Nobody wants to read that crap - Or live it. Besides, why do you think it's called falling in love? 'Cause there's always the risk of getting hurt."

This is my first read by Anne Everett and I really enjoyed it. Her characters pull you in to their turmoil immediately and I found my self up half the night needing to know what would happen next.

This was a very sweet story about a girl who has to learn a new life as she raises her sisters daughter after her death. It is about how she copes and how one hot "preacher", helps her to learn that love is in the stars for her after all. A truly enjoyable read!

Raynie finds herself grieving the loss of her sister and trying to figure out how to be a mom to her niece all the while in a different town with no friends.

This is the first book that I have had the chance to read by Ann Everett. When I read the synopsis I was hooked. I have to say that it was a tad misleading though. Overall, I really did enjoy this book and look forward to reading more of the authors work.

Have you ever told a little white lie? One that you knew you would most likely never have to explain? That is just the predicament that Jared Sloan finds himself in. What he never expected was to be so drawn to the unique woman who seems to thin

This was my first time reading anything by Ann Everett and I totally must say that I thoroughly enjoyed this sweet story. Ms Everett has given us a story that will suck you right in and keeps you there from start to finish ,and then leaves us wanting more from this author. The story was an emotional roller coast ride and had a little bit of crazy also,and the characters were amazing the secondary characters who were friends and family were written great even thought they only make grief appearan ...more

I loved this book. I was teary eyed at the start and really wasn't sure what to expect.

This book so deserves more than 5 stars! I read it one sitting because this story is so interesting that I just couldn't put it down. I couldn't predict what would happen and I like that! ALOT!

Raynie is a loner. No relationship needed. If she wants to hook up then it's just sex, don't need any of that love crap! Fairy tales are not real. She's better off alone. Until her sister and her husband die and she gets left the custody of her 6-year-old niece. A kid? What the heck was her sister thinkin

This is my first book by Ann Everett and I have already marked Tell Me a Secret & Two Wrongs Make a Right for reading!

So, the description intrigued me - I have read so many books with a good heroine and a bad boy and they falling for each other ... this one is slightly different.

Rayne has sworn off relationships thanks to two divorces, whereas, Jared though hasn't exactly sworn off relationships, has a crazy ex-girlfriend who's stalking him and an ex-fiancee wanting him back!

She feels inadequate, especially compared to the perfect life she thought her sister had, so when she meets an attractive man she thinks is the associate pastor of a local church, she takes it as an opportunity to talk to someone about her feelings.

I received an ARC from Book Enthusiast Promotions for their 30 Day Indie Challenge.

I originally picked this book because of the slightly taboo insinuation in the synopsis of a bad girl hippy chick and a pastor hooking up. Turns out the synopsis was a wee bit misleading and although I found the beginning of the book a rough start because of my confusion and Jared's antics, it didn't take long to fall in love with the main characters. Raynebeaux Starr aka Raynie is quite the character. She's a

I have already read 2 of Ann's works and I loved it. This one is no exception, the book kept me engrossed.

The main characters of this book were part of 2 other books, however this book is stand alone. Having said that let's get into the story.

Raynie is a free spirit who enjoys life as it come and doesn't believe in happily ever after. She owns a successful tarot card reading business. All of a sudden her happy free world goes upside down. Her sister dies in a car accident

Say You'll Never Love Me is the first book I have read by Ann Everett. This book is written in multiple pov's. If you don't like those types of books then this is not one for you. The book did start out a little slow but did pick up the pace.
Raynebeaux Starr or Raynie has moved to now take care of her niece Silbie. Raynie has no clue how to be a mother and learning how to take care of a child and how her sister handled everything is a job in it self. Raynie thinks she should seek help from a so

Raynebeaux "Raynie" doesn't believe in fairy tale or happy ever afters. She hasn't been lucky with relationships so now she doesn't do relationships. Her life is turned upside down when her sister and her sister's husband passing away. She is now the guardian of her six year old niece. Raynie is a down to earth girl and she's a little in over her head raising her niece. I liked Raynie's character.

At first I wasn't sure whether I like Jared or not. The sorry is told in both his and Raynie's POVs

I truly enjoyed this book. It was fun, sexy and very emotional at times. Between Raynie and Jared and that sweet little Silbie....it was chock full of characterization that made these people real and endearing to your heart. I fell in love with Mr Remmus. Raynie is a very complex character in that her self esteem has taken a toll on her way of looking at love and commitment. Jared has had his heart bruised and yet, he knows this woman is for him. All in all...a wonderful and fun reading experien ...more

You never know when or where love will find you and this story is all about that. Raynebeaux has just experienced a tragic lost and finds herself in a position she was not ready for....raising her young niece. She is a tarot card reader and has given up believing in fairy tales and happily ever afters, especially for her. Trying to deal with some of the stress, she goes by a church in order to get some guidance, but she didn't count on meeting Jared. Jared is in the wrong place at the right time ...more

This Was A Really Enjoyable Read And Once Over The Sad Start To This Book, It Ends Up Being A Really Beautiful And Happy Story.

I Liked That They Had To Work At Their Happy Ever After, It Was All Happy Happy From The Get Go And Perfect, They Had Issues To Work On And Alot Of This Happen That I Wasn't Happy With. I Hated That Jared Played Raynie For So Long Regarding The Mistaken Identity Thing And Allowed Her To Call Him Father For Far Too Long.

I loved this book. It was a really cute and happy story. Starts out sad as our main character has to deal with some major life changes but it has a wonderful ending. I even enjoyed some of the little surprises she adds in. I like a story where the couple have to work out their problems. This isn't one where they meet and everything is grand. These two go through changes before they get their H.A. l also enjoyed the secondary characters ,as they add humor to the story. Looking forward to reading ...more

This was a pretty decent read for me. I loved Jared and the way that he tricked Raynebeaux but if you really think about he didn't. Rayne was a person who thought she had it all but really she didn't and she didn't figure that out until her life was turned upside down. Jared was the guy that you love to hate cause of what he went through but that is what makes you love him even more. I loved the supporting characters because they made this story more enjoyable.
