Talia Lennick expected an uneventful week at the beach with her family. Reading, sunbathing, recharging her proverbial batteries – all typical beach vacation activities. Oh, and dealing with her family who was too concerned with her almost-thirty-and-single status. What she didn’t expect was Briggs Townsend. Briggs was the handsome man living in the house next door who loo ...more

Anie Michael’s Never series is phenomenal and it was great to pick it back up with book #6 and “Never With You”. This can easily be read as a standalone but it doesn’t hurt reading books 1-5 again to get a refresher on the supporting cast of characters.
Talia and Briggs didn't expect to meet each other. Each are meeting up after going thru some very rough times in each of their lives. Talia's on vacation and Briggs is fixing up his house. They both unknowingly spy on one another at around the sam

I've been a fan of Anie Michaels' since the very beginning. Never with You is her newest book in the Never series. Porter is still one of all-time favorites and I just have to say how happy I was to see him again! Never with You is a story of two people finding each other at what seems is the wrong time. But what if it's not wrong at all. What if the universe gives you exactly what you need at the exact right moment? Talia and Briggs didn't expect to meet each other. Talia's on vacation and Brig ...more

Never with you was a very enjoyable story it would be my first read by Anie Michaels and of the series , was hocked from the first page felt the strong connection that pulled the hero and heroine together . They both unknowingly spy the other around the same time and once that's done they couldn't get each other off their minds . Briggs and Talia formed an intense connection that couldn't be denied and when they finally stop fighting the attraction lets jut say HHHHHHOOOOOOTTTTT I need to find m ...more

"Never with you" is a great and easy read. I was a little reserved to read book 6 of the Never Series without rereading books 1-5 again. I thought I would be lost but as soon as I started to read and get into it bits and pieces of the older books popped up throughout the book. It made me smile when Porters name popped up because I loved him in the last books! This book although is book 6 I think would be easy to read even if you haven't read the other books in they series.

Never With You by Anie Michaels is book six in the Never Series. In Never With You we meet two new characters. The characters are both overcoming past situations that they are trying to forget and move on from. Finding the courage and strength to move on and to trust again sometimes tends to be difficult.
Never With You is a book that I really enjoyed reading. I am a huge fan of Anie Michaels and her Never Series. Being able to read about and catch up with your favorite characters from book

Why aren't there more than five stars⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️?

This was an amazing story! Two people who have been so hurt by their first love that they have a hard time believing that this love could be so right. Briggs and Talia were made for each other!

What a fantastic book to end my summer…awesome beach read! Talia Lennick has come to the beach with her family not expecting much, since her sister-in-law picked a beach off the beaten path. She plans on spending her days sunning on the beach reading trying to get away from her loving but sometimes overbearing parents, especially her mother worrying that Talia won’t ever get her HEA since she’s at the spinster age of 29! LOL! Imagine her surprise when she sees a surfer god in the distance…comple ...more

Never With You is the sixth book in the amazing Never series by one of my favorite authors, Anie Michaels. It can be read as a standalone but if you did read the previous books then you will recognize some of the secondary characters. But this is the first time you will meet Briggs and Talia. Two people that didn't expect to meet each other.

Talia was on vacation with her family of seven for the next week in a remote area on the Oregon coast when she saw him. A man on the water that
This book I found out was book 6 in the Never Series and the first book I have read by this author and in the series. So as you can see they are a standalone and while you see secondary characters you are not lost at all. For those of you who have read the other books in the series, it was probably an added bonus to see the past characters cause I know I love seeing those characters in other books.

Briggs and Talia aren't really in a place where a relationship is wanted. Needed? I say yes, but the definitely not wanted. Both are mending from heartache in their own way -- she with a relaxing vacation, he demolishing and renovating. It's a game of "look but don't look", and it was endearing to watch their attraction to and curiosity about one another grow from afar.

They don't have a lot of time together. Vacations eventually come to an end. Real life doesn't stop just because you stepped awa

I love me some Anie Michaels! I have previously read all 5 books in the "Never" series and I was afraid that I might be a little lost jumping into the 6th book without re-reading the first 5. But I was so totally wrong!

I jumped into this book feet first and was hooked. There are bits & pieces from the prior books intertwined and when the other characters names popped up, I got the warm & fuzzies because I loved the previous books so much!

This book was AMAZING!! I started reading it after I put my kids to bed and before I knew it, it was 12:45 a.m. and I had to make myself stop and go to bed! (I had already told myself just one more chapter about 5 times lol)

I absolutely loved the characters; Talia the firecracker with her gorgeous red hair and fiery personality and Briggs with his lip-biting, tool-belt-wearing, surfing self *ahem*, it's safe to say I'm a fan!

Talia Lennick is on vacation with her family, and she thought she would be bored. What she didn't expect is to meet the hot neighbor, and feel a connection with him. Brigs Townsend is consumed with fixing the beach house that he and his ex-wife bought together to sell, and he never expected to meet a woman that caught his interest. Neither need a relationship, but both can't get enough of each other, so what will happen when Talia's vacation is over?! Never With You is a quick and sweet read, so ...more

Never with You was a great love story. It was about two people Talia and Briggs who have both gone through troubled relationships. They want to trust but are unsure of how to do it. They assume they both can have a casual relationship and nothing else will come of it. The passion that Anie presents in this story is so raw. It mesmerized me how well she can capture such great emotion and provide the characters with an amazing back story. One thing I really enjoyed is you didn't have to read her p ...more

Never With You is book 6 in the Never Series and its a great read, it pulls you in immediately with great characters that may be a little lost but together can find their way to true happiness.

I love, love, loved this book! Although I wasn't surprised because I loved everything I've read by Anie!

Talia goes on vacation to a beach house with her family and feels that she doesn't fit in. She decides to try to enjoy her getaway nonetheless and ends up watching a swoony surfer for an entire afternoon. She ends up meeting the surfer, Briggs, and decides to fill her days with visiting him. After all, working on his fixer upper house is much more appealing than spending time with her family.

Never with You by Anie Michaels is the 6th book in the Never Series, but can be read as a stand-a-lone. It is the story of Briggs and Talia. They meet while Talia is on vacation with her family. Although the characters of Briggs and Talia are new to the reader, we do get a glimpse of previous characters from the series. It was wonderful to re-visit these characters who feel like old friends, especially Ella and Porter.

The story is a sweet one between two individuals that have been hurt in the p

Talia and Briggs met at a time they are both at a crossroads in their lives. Even though there's instant attraction, the parts I enjoyed the most were when they were joking around or getting to know each other better.

I liked, too, that both Talia's family and Brigg's friends had such big presences. I feel like the supporting characters can provide a lot of insight and humor.

This book, being primarily set on the Oregon coast, is a perfect summer beach read. Just enough romance and plot to keep y

This is the 6th book in this series, and it is the first time I have read any of this author’s work, but my word, I will be adding this author to by favourites and 1-click lists! Talia and Briggs have an intense chemistry between them, but they are both reluctant to start any relationship, due to being burnt in the past. No spoilers this is a definite must read, you will not be disappointed!

This is a fantastic series! Never With You is book 6. You do not have to read 1-5 but I highly recommend going back and reading them eventually. This is Briggs and Talia's story. They found each other when they least expected. She is on vacation with her family. He is trying to rebuild his house on the beach. They have both been burned in love. Neither is looking for a relationship. But why not a little vacation romance for Talia. Briggs has nothing to lose, Talia will be leaving when vacation i ...more

When I read the very first Never book & fell in love with Porter I knew I had found an automatic one click author. I have since read everything this delightful lady has ever written & each one leaves me with a smile on my face. Each series is very different but all gripping from beginning to end.

Though this is book 6 of the Never series it can be read as a standalone as we are introduced to two new characters but I would definitely recommend reading the others in the series just so you can swoon

I am a huge fan of Anie Michaels and this book didn't disappoint. Talia and Brigss are great characters to add to the world of the Never Series. Their relationship and chemistry flies off the page. The previous characters are also woven into the story (but this would be an easy read even if you haven't read the other books) This was such a well written story I had a hard time putting it down and read it in one day. Even though both characters had some baggage I thought Anie wrote it in a believa ...more

Talia is on a summer vacation with her family trying to just lay back and enjoy no expectations. But in Comes Briggs and that plan goes out the window. These two have their walls up and what they thought they did not want ended up being exactly what they needed. This book had some angst and lots of swooney moments.

Reading Briggs abs Talia story was very well written. I enjoyed reading their story and getting to know them along the way. They both had been through so much and I feel that they needed each other to get through out also. Their stodynwas awesome and I loved every minute of it. Another awesome reward Anie!!!!

"Never With you" is the Sixth book in Anie Michaels "The Never Series".
This book is a stand alone story and you don't have to read the other books before you read this one, but you will meet characters from previous books in "Never With you". I do recommend Reading the Whole series, just because they are good ;)

I really liked "Never With you". For me it was a quick and easy read,a feel good book.A Perfect summer read. 4,5/5 summer stars :D

I was given a free arc if never with you for exchange of an honest review *****
I loved Talia and Briggs, they had a connection from the first time they saw each other (that surf board and little red bikini). I loved that even though they were both getting over nasty relationships there was a lightness to their relationship and the entire story. Throw in porter and Ella and the rest if the gang and you've got an incredible read! Well done anie!! 5 stars all the way.

All the feels, and more!

Anie Michael's has given her readers a first class ticket on the feelings express, and Anie is the engineer. 'Never With You' seamlessly introduces Talia and Briggs into the 'Never ' series by weaving them into the fabric of the previous books, so if you're a new reader, you won't be lost. As for Briggs, for all of his handsomeness on the outside, he has an equal level of tenderness inside. Talia is a sweet, if longsome, woman who meets Briggs while on a family vacation,
