I have always gotten the short end of the stick when it came to my personal life. Drug addicted mother, obsessive step father, shitty upbringing, and one soul shattering, heart-wrenching relationship.

But everything changed when I met Alec Prescott. I couldn’t stand the cocky hotshot lawyer at first, but after

"Taken,Ruled and Commanded"

As always M.Never has given us another book that will give her readers a plethora of emotions and that had me hooked throughout.
I seriously couldn't get enough of this book as it consumed me and left me with all the feels.
The storyline was very compelling and kept me second guessing all the way to the end.
Their story is definitely worth one clicking as soon as you can,SERIOUSLY you need to one click it STRAIGHT AWAY.
I don't want to say much about the storyline as like

I’ve read all of M. Never’s work and I will shout it from the rooftops so you guys know - she’s a phenomenal storyteller. From page one, I started highlighting. I didn’t want to forget her poetic and beautiful words. Not long into Chapter 1 I was hooked. By hooked I mean I couldn’t flip the pages fast enough.

There are so many elements to this book - extreme sexiness, suspense, questions and answers. I sat in my seat on the plane, twitching and moving around because this book was so hot, I was l

I really don't want to be harsh in my reviews. I even took one day to calm myself, so my review wouldn't be too harsh! But sometimes you wonder how some books can be published with such nonsense.

I got feeling author just wanted to wrote new book, not to care to properly develop characters and their relationships. It was like facts and actions were written down in certain time period. The beginning was promising, but second part was horrible. Characters were not connected, there was no chemistry

Provocative and suspenseful.

We start with a young girl, completely in love but locked away. We witness her heart being broken and then eight years later she still in not quite recovered from what happened to her. Everly is a secretary for a law firm, who is just existing. She goes to work and then goes home. But she is ready to take the plunge into a real life when her past sneaks up on her making moving on very difficult.

One thing I have come to realize… M. Never never fails in writing the super HOT M/M/F scenes. This book, there are 2 scenes that OMG… sham-wow panty worthy!!

Everly has been dealt a pretty crappy life. Living with a drug addicted mother and a step-father who locked her into a room starting at the age of 13.

Now 8 years have gone by since the day it all went down at the compound. Everly has finally made the decision to move on and try to start having a life.

I have read M. Never in the read and re-read a lot of her books. They are sooooo ah-may-zing!! There's a but coming......BUT this book and the last book I read from her (Strip Me Bare) were huge flops for me. I read some reviews after I finished the book, just to see what other people were saying about it, and I was surprised that not many people shared my opinion. Like, did we read the same story?

The book starts out with a teenage Everly trapped in

A quick and steamy read... but not really for me. Sadly, I didn't really connect with this one. Although, I can tell you there were some hot AF ménage à trois scenes written. Holy screen steamer, Batman! But another one off the TBR and hooray for KU! 3 stars.

Um... I dreaded writing this review because I don’t want to offend anyone as I am not really good with words so I just tell you right up front that I didn’t like this book. I’ll try to explain why but please keep in mind that it’s just my personal opinion.

The blurb sounded promising and I was really excited about my first read from this author. As great as the prologue started out though, it sadly didn’t continue this way. First off, I never warmed up to Everly. I just didn’t like her tedious an

I really like M. Never and I've always rated her books high but this one was so far off from her other work that I had to work to get through it. Basically, you have Everly, a girl who works as a secretary at a prestigious law firm and Alec, a totally hot and snotty junior partner. God knows how long Everly has worked at the firm but Alec never notices her even though he's well aware she's there. On the very same day he dismisses her as plain, that very same night, he becomes absolutely head ove ...more
This was pretty good, though sometimes things felt a touch rushed.
I have seriously mixed feelings about the ending.
This story made me ACHE because I wanted to love it.

Promising blurb and having come out of MOTO I started it was great anticipation. I love threesomes and M Never does them pretty well but what was out of kilter in this one was the three way relationship and Everly. Her character just did not do this book justice. Meant to be damaged but that damage didn't come through strong enough and when the big secret of why she was "imprisoned" was revealed I rolled my eyes.

The story, for me, lacked dept
Catherine Bibby (Rochelle's Reviews)
I received a copy and voluntarily left a review and all opinions are my own.

I adore M. Never's writing but was hesitant to read A.C.H.E. Because after reading Moto, another menage romance of hers, and getting my heart shredded but loving and cursing her every minute for it, I wasn't sure if I was emotionally ready. But alas, I just couldn't pass up a chance at reading another gut wrenching story, even if I wanted to protect my heart instead. That being said, Tage, Everly, and Alec are AHMAZING!
Este es el primer libro que leo de esta autora y para nada me esperaba algo así. Este no es un libro convencional ya que tiene contenido tabú con un trío incluido. Intrigante y sexy, con dos hombres calientes y una dulce y tímida chica. Eso sí, las emociones y el drama en el libro hacen que desees más y más.

So first things first - I went into this book knowing that I loved M. Never's Decadence After Dark series. I was looking forward to this one....romantic suspense, a cocky lawyer, a bad boy, plus menage?! Count me in!

oh yeah

But this was one of those books where I was totally invested, enjoying things for the most part, and then BAM the ending killed it for me :(

A.C.H.E. is told from 3 POVs.....Everly, Alec, and Tage.  The prologue gives us the backstory of Everly when she was 16 and her relationship wit

Alla prima metà del romanzo darei 4 stelline, perché è veramente bella: c'è tensione sessuale, mistero, passione. Ma poi i due protagonisti maschili si incontrano e... cosa? Decidono di condividere la protagonista, così che lei non debba scegliere? Ma cos...? Non è molto verosimile, considerando che i due non si conoscono e sono entrambi alpha :/ E poi, è palese che lei sia innamorata di Tage. Come può amare anche Alec, con cui fa le capriole solo da pochi giorni, e come può lui dichiarare di no ...more

"Two primary colors that saturate my world with pigment when mixed together."
She fell passionately in love at the innocent age of 16 to a man she thought the world of... but things were not as she imagined them to be. 8 years later after crawling through hell and lingering in Purgatory trying to find her way through this isolated world she opens her heart again to another man who seemed to be a grade-A a-hole. And just when you think things are beginning to perk up... her former lover re-appears

This book left me so gutted! I won't accept that this is where it all ends. I won't! Tage, Everly and Alec never thought in a million years that it would take a dynamic change to find happiness. Their story was a tough one, with Tage leaving Everly and causing her untold grief, with Everly and Alec just beginning to discover their own feelings, and yet don't count out Tage so soon! Everly's parents were terrible, but the extent to which they would go for their own selfish wants was the worst. Pl ...more

I've been a fan of M.Nevers for a while, so when I got the chance to read A.C.H.E. I jumped in!

M. Never has an incredible way of bringing three people together in an unconventional way that makes your heart ache for the characters. I loved this story!! Incredible dynamics, that takes you on a rollercoaster ride of emotions leaving you spent at the end.

I will say that I hope we get a second book because I'd love to know more about their story!

This latest from M. Never is a contemporary romance full of the feels.
Tage is a mystery...a ghost, driven to serve and protect.
Everly is searching...lost and alone, there must be more to this life.
Alec is a force of nature...driven and strong and decisive.
One is an unresolved past, one is an unknown future.
But together, they just work...or do they?

I feel like the author left us a little bereft...there were so many more answers I wanted. I wonder, is there more?

My heart aches for our heroine, Everly, who learns at an early age that the people who claim to love us are the ones that can hurt us the most, which has her going through the motions of her life but she's not really living. When a new man comes into her life, bringing danger with him, she's transported right back to her painful past. I liked this quirky storyline and the characters were sympathetic and intriguing but the perfunctory three way sex scenes left a lot to be desired.

Her only joy is a an older guy, who supposedly worked for her stepdad. Their relationship taboo and secret. He comes to her at night. omg I felt all their love, passion and despair. M had me hooked!!

The fact that this is a romantic suspense and a menage got me anxious to read it and I really loved where the story was going, but the way the menage was delivered just didn't feel right.

In this story you have two very alpha males, strong, powerful and arrogant even, also a strong intelligent woman that decides to live her life fully, after a terrible heartbreak. When these two men confront each other, you expect a fight for the woman they both want, but you get something like - let's share her
