I am a huge fan of Chevy Stevens. "Never Let You Go" is her newest novel that will be released in March of 2017.

After reading the book description I was pretty sure that I was going to love this book.
I was right!

The book starts off from Lindsay Nash's point of view. It's November 2005. Lindsay, her husband Andrew, and daughter Sophie are on holiday in Mexico. But this is definitely not a vacation for Lindsay. She can't just
4.5 stars

This was my first Chevy Stevens and wow . . . what a book to start with! I’m impressed. A fear-inducing story of manipulation and love gone wrong, NEVER LET YOU GO serves up mind games in the form of devious twists. Seriously, is there anything better than a great twist to knock you on your ass and change your entire perspective?

Ms. Stevens starts by dragging the reader through a gamut of emotions - the excitement of Andrew and Lindsey falling in love and starting a family, the heartbre

I am pleased to announce that I am back on the Chevy train! I’ve been an avid follower of Mrs. Stevens and her books since I first picked up Still Missing back in 2010. I’ve read all of her books and, while I have my favorites *cough cough Still Missing and Always Watching cough cough*, I’ve thoroughly enjoyed all of them except her last book, Those Girls. While it was entertaining and not terrible, it didn’t feel like the rest of her books and I wondered if maybe she’d lost her touch. Not so pe ...more

*3.5 stars rounded up*

My husband and I once had an argument because I wanted to recreate the entire cast of Spongebob using family members and he didn't want to play. It wasn’t a serious fight, of course, and it ended with both of us laughing at our (ok, my) idiocy, but the point is—marriage be crazy sometimes! It’s the ultimate stomping ground for ungodly amounts of insignificant disputes. And when *fiction* gets a hold of this sacred bond and warps its complexities into darkly disturbing t
This is the first book that I've ever read by this author, but it certainly won't be the last. 'Never Let You Go' was a suspenseful and highly engaging read/listen. I listened to the Audible version and I did not want to pull myself away from this story until I had finished it. I kept telling myself, "just another few minutes and I'll turn it off". Once I got started on this book, I had to keep going. It was great!

The story unfolds little by little, alternating between present time and flashback

A fantastic domestic thriller 4.5*

Lindsey is a blushing new bride. Married to Andrew, a very handsome, successful owner of a construction firm. Life seems picture-perfect. Of course, there are always the petty disagreements and Andrew does seem to lose his temper rather quickly. But, they are newlyweds after all. Just getting to know each other really. Then things begin to rapidly escalate. Lindsey suddenly finds herself cut off from her friends, forbidden to even look at or engage any male othe

Never Let You Go is a very good title for this book. It's positive, but also menacing, depending on the context. This is a story with many layers. The author really put some work into her narrative. If the stalker were to be removed from the book, it would still be a potential page turner.

Initially, I had to drag myself to read this one. Unlike regular Goodreads friends, I'm not weathered by the violence and budding threats that are so often in thriller books. These aren't spy books. They are th

Lindsey Nash marries the good looking and charming Andrew, only to find herself trapped in a nightmare of a marriage. Andrew runs a construction company and his true self begins to be revealed. He is possessive, jealous, controlling, manipulative, abusive and he drinks. Lindsey puts up with him for the sake of her daughter, Sophie, ...more

Just enough movement of those delicate wings to set powerful actions into profound motion......

Lindsay Nash feels the gentle signs of love with being cast as the center of Andrew's universe. All is bright and all is beautiful as they move into their first home. Andrew, a successful building contractor, has provided a job for her carpenter father and with that the care of her mother who has MS.

I am late to the party with this book. It has been reviewed to death but what I will say about "Never Let You Go" is that I didn't guess the ending. That was worth 1/2 a star bumping this from a 3.5 to a 4 Star novel!

I listened to the audio. It was not the greatest. I give it 3 Stars. One narrator was much better than the other. I was able to stay with the book only because it was well written, interesting and I wanted to see what happened. I recommend going with a hardcopy.

Whoa boy, that got unexpectedly intense.  And surprising.

As the story opens our protagonist Lindsay Nash is on vacation with her husband Andrew and their 7 year old daughter Sophie.  To all outward appearances they are a happy little family enjoying their time in the sun at a beautiful resort in Mexico, but appearances can be deceiving.  Lindsay is not at all relaxed.  She has a knot in her stomach and her tension grows with each drink her husband finishes.   She is making every effort to not br

Never Let You Go had my heart pounding! Filled with tension and twists and turns, I couldn’t put it down. It’s dark, disturbing, creepy and action packed. It made me so paranoid that one night when I was up late reading, I actually got up to see if someone was in my house. I learned my lesson--this is not a book to be read late at night!

Andrew is a creepy-scary dude who believes his wife Lindsey is a possession to be controlled. He is obsessively jealous to the point of ridiculous and when he begins to drink, oh boy, he becomes cruel and violent.....except to daughter Sophie.

Chevy Stevens' story of a marriage gone bad is NOT like so many others I've read with a similar theme, but has more than one mysterious and thrilling spin that takes the reader in

I just thought this book was just O.K. to me. It did keep me turning the pages and I was intrigued to find out what was going to happen next but the domestic abuse just made me cringe and I felt very uncomfortable. I can put up with a lot in psychological and dark thrillers but I have found out that I cannot put up with domestic abuse and will be staying away from these kind of thrillers in the future.

This was my first Chevy Stevens novel, and I admit that I waited for a couple of trusted friends to finish with their reviews, before deciding whether or not to read it. I enjoyed the format, with alternating chapters of Lindsey and her daughter, Sophie, and switching from past to present throughout the storyline.

Well I've had several days to let this read percolate in my brain, and I'm happy to say this still stands as a solid 4.5 star rating from me.

The plot isn't anything new. Lindsay's true love/husband Andrew turns out to be an insecure bully who's mental and physical abuse continues to progress throughout the years. When he starts using their daughter Sophie as a pawn, Lindsay realizes she needs to leave, in anyway possible.
It's this action that triggers events that will forever change all of the
Her marriage to Andrew had been wonderful at first – but during her pregnancy, and after Sophie was born, Lindsey noticed subtle changes. Andrew became possessive; she no longer had any friends; and he started to drink. But her parents and brother thought Andrew was wonderful – he was that good an actor. Finally when Sophie was five – after giving Andrew more chances than Lindsey could remember – she fled with Sophie in the dead of night.

I was too impatient to wait to get the print copy from Norma so I decided to listen to the audio version of Never Let You Go. I enjoyed it for the most part but do have to admit the voice of Sophie did annoy me a bit. I probably would've preferred to have read it instead of listening to it.

I had a couple of experiences with Chevy Stevens' psychological thrillers before Never Let You Go. I really struggled with Still Missing. I was impressed -- but felt like I'd been through the wringer-- with Those Girls. And Never Let You Go felt like another experience altogether. Set in two different time frames, Never Let You Go focuses on Lindsey and her daughter Sophie. The first time frame has Lindsey in an abusive marriage that we know she manages to escape. The later time frame shows Lind ...more

The mystery revolves around Lindsay, her ex-husband, Andrew, who just got out of prison, and their teenage daughter Sophie. The POV switches between these three in alternating chapters, with some flashbacks to the past. Lindsay now thinks she’s being stalked and fears she is in danger. But from who? She thinks it's her ex-husband, but who is telling the truth and who is lying? There are a lot of red herrings and at one time or another I suspected just about everyone.

This book gave me vibes of the movie starring Julia Roberts, Sleeping With The Enemy! A domestic thriller about an emotionally abusive and controlling husband, Andrew and his wife, Lindsey. They have a daughter, Sophie, who Andrew uses to further "control" and induce fear unto Lindsey.
