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 ...more
This was my first Chevy Stevens and wow . . . what a book to start with! Im 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 ...more
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 wasnt a serious fight, of course, and it ended with both of us laughing at our (ok, my) idiocy, but the point ismarriage be crazy sometimes! Its 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 ...more
The story unfolds little by little, alternating between present time and ...more
I like books where I think I know the score and feel all smug and then I get smacked into place.
I will say I guessed the "who" really early but this one was all about the "why" so it was still a fantastic read, or in this case, listen.
***By the way, I recommend NOT going with the audio version of this one and just reading it because the actress who narrated the daughter? Excruciating.
But that's not Chevy's fault so still 4 stars.
Thanks to Lisa for recommending this one ...more
I picked up Never Let You Go by Chevy Stevens and barely put this book down after the story began. This is the first book I've read by her and I'm pretty sure I just found a favorite new author!
*This review may contain spoilers for those who haven't read the book*
At first, I thought for sure this was going to be another domestic abuse story like the movie Enough with Jennifer Lopez. It reminded me so much of the movie, but ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
Chevy Stevens fans should be satisfied with this new psychological thriller.
"Never Let You Go"...
*****5 stars from me
Why? -- I never lost interest!!!
Lindsey married Andrew. They had a daughter named Sophie.
Lindsey leaves Andrew after years of an 'extremely' toxic marriage.
Lindsay has a girlfriend named Jenny, a boyfriend named Greg, and an exercise trainer named Marcus
Sophie has a close friend named Delancy and a boyfriend named Jared
4.5 stars rounded up!
Norma didnt need to use her twisted mind as much with this one but she still managed to shock Brenda with figuring out the reveal and the details before she did. It adds a shocking twist to a thriller for Brenda that she normally wouldn't of experienced if reading it on her own.
NEVER LET YOU GO by CHEVY STEVENS is an angst driven, chilling, gripping, and suspenseful domestic psychological thriller novel that explores the darkness of ...more
Just enough movement of those delicate wings to set powerful actions into profound motion......

Andrew, a successful building contractor, has provided a job for her carpenter father and with that the care of her mother who has MS. How fortunate Lindsay is until that marital cup starts to slowly drain through the ...more
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.
This is the second ...more
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 ...more

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.
"Your dad loved to scare me."
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...more
The book begins in the past, with a brief look at the effects of the extreme abuse Lindsey has suffered from her husband, Andrew. Then quickly forwards eleven years to the present where ...more
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. I did think this was very well written and I will be looking forward to reading ...more
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 ...more
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.
Full sister review on Norma's reviews.

Lindsay, marries young, to a man who ends up being very controlling, jealous, and later.. abusive. She has a young daughter, Sophie..and feels she must escape.
This is their story told in alternating chapters by mother and daughter.
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.
Lindsey comes up with a plan and eventually escapes with her daughter while Andrew is passed out on the couch. Fast ...more

CHEVY STEVENS lives on Vancouver Island with her husband and daughter. When shes not working on her next book, shes hiking with her two dogs on her favorite mountain trails and spending time with her family. Chevy's current obsessions are vintage airstreams, Hollywood memoirs all things mid-century modern, and stand-up comedians--not necessarily in that order.
Chevy's debut novel, STILL MISSING, ...more
