Never Always

4.61  ·  Rating details ·  23 ratings  ·  19 reviews
A standalone novel in the Harbour Point SEAL Series.

In a family filled with picturesque butterflies, I’m a moth. Camouflaged. The invisible, nerdy scientist who would rather study water and save the planet than don a dress and mingle in southern society. Unfortunately, having my nose in a book and eating goals for breakfast doesn’t bode well for a social life or

Rachel Robinson is fairly new to me, I have read one of her books and I loved it, but as it happens, my TBR list kept growing and so did my blog arc's so trying to find time to read another book has been hard. So when I saw this beauty come up, I knew I had to jump at it and read it and as expected, I absolutely loved it.

Corrick Granger and Scarlet Tennyson couldn't be more different if they tried.

Corrick was a tough one, at first he wasn't my favorite. I didn't connect with him right away but

Tennyson is perfectly happy in her own little bubble. She can easily loose herself for hours in her microbiology lab work. However she is aware that she should be making more of an effort to find friends and ‘get out there’ ....more to appease her family and prove that she can function perfectly well on her own without her former pageant queen sister over-shadowing her at every opportunity.
Grange is having a hard time.... most of it from his own doing but he is trying his best to get his

This was my absolute favorite of the Harbour Point SEALs by a good stretch, and that says something, because I absolutely loved Clover & Mercer.
Corrick Granger is an inappropriate man, with a dirty mind, and a dirtier mouth. He’s in the business of shocking Tennyson from the moment they meet.
Chance sets them on a shared path, choice keeps them together, and they work on overcoming obstacles set in their wake.
I loved the side characters. Rexy & Maeve, Sue-Ellen, and so many more.

Oh wow, where do I begin.

Corrick Granger, a man that has a dirty mouth and speaks without a filter to save his life. In the beginning of the story I didn’t think I would fall for him like I did but this author does something to a man that gives him the redeeming qualities and this was top on the list.

Tennyson is different from all the girls back home, she knew she was going places because she uses her brain instead of her beauty. Because of this, she never thought of herself as the beauty that

Grange and Tennyson's story is jam packed with sizzle and steam, suspense, and action. I will admit a lot of the things that came out of Grange's mouth were slap his face worthy, but he does redeem himself in the way he falls so hard for Tennyson. There was one scene that was absolutely heartbreaking, but Grange gets through it with Tennyson's help and their bond strengthens. There were a lot of wonderful characters and great moments that made this a story I really enjoyed.

Oh my!
Well, let’s start off by talking about how big of a you know what Granger was in the beginning! I mean seriously?!?! I didn’t think he had any redeeming qualities. None. And then we get to know him. He’s a big ole softie underneath.
I didn’t get the no kissing thing at first either. Seemed odd. Especially for a man who was engaged.
Tennyson is a nerd. A gorgeous one who has no self confidence: she defines herself only by her brain. I’m glad she came from a loving family.

These two meet and

5 LOVE STARS!! I absolutely loved Grange and Tennyson!!! Their story touched all of my heartstrings the feels were off the charts. This book is full of suspense, sexiness, great banter, friendship and love. This is my first book by this author and she has gained a new reader. You definitely need to download and read this is so good.

Rachel Robinson is a new-to-me author and I really enjoyed her writing style. Corrick "Grange" Granger and Scarlet Tennyson "Fire" Kline are total opposites, but make the perfect pair. The whole story was a really pleasurable read. The secondary characters were a great addition, too.

Never Always by Rachel Robinson is a MUST read and will join the ranks of the BIBLIO-ELITE!!!

ARC provided by author in exchange for an honest review.

Corrick Granger (Grange) is not a nice human when we first meet him. He's arrogant, cocky and rude to our heroine Scarlet Tennyson Kline (Tennyson). Tennyson is quiet, smart and a little socially awkward. She's from a typical southern family but is kind of the odd duck because her sister is the one that is the quintessential beauty pageant queen. Tennyson works as a researcher in a marine lab in town. Grange and Tennyson's first meeting is
Nov 25, 2019 rated it did not like it
I was really looking forward to this book since I typically love nerdy heroines. Unfortunately, the hero in this book is so unlikeable I had to DNF at 30%. I love a bad boy, and I even love the occasional a**hole when written in such a way that the reader is able to see at least 1, maybe 2 redeeming and endearing qualities that make you hold out until the end to witness the fabulous character development. I couldn't hold out. There was nothing endearing about this hero. In fact, the meet cute ...more

Tennyson Is the complete opposite of everything her mother expects. Her sister Sue-Ellen is the social butterfly that everyone expects. One day while trying to relax she meets a man who is mowing the grass but neither make a good first impression. She leaves and assumes she’ll never see him again. When she gets an intern request, she signed it without looking at any of details about the intern. When the intern walks in, they’re both shocked, it’s Grange, the man who was mowing the grass.

This was a great read from beginning to end. Tennyson is a sassy, sweet, science nerd and when she crosses paths with the standoffish, hot, Navy Seal Corrick Grange the chemistry leaps off the page and grabs you. I loved them together. When a tragedy leads to Grange pushing Tennyson away, her heartbreak is devastating, but it is the twist at the end that had me on the edge of my seat, not being able to turn the pages fast enough. This story had it all and a happily ever after that will leave you ...more

Never always is a first for me by Author Rachel Robinson, and it truly was such a sweet surprise!
The characters that she created were so awesome to read. I loved just how they were complete opposites, but, their differing personalities and interests complimented their relationship.
Two very different people, for two very different worlds, that you could honestly tell that they were meant for each other. Definitely soulmates. &There interactions were amazing to read. Lots of laughter and

Never Always is a really sweet read from Rachel Robinson with the focus on the main characters of Tennyson who is the quintessential geek of her domain. She gets flustered when it comes to attracting the opposite sex but has a bit of snarkiness to her which is quite refreshing. Oh, she is also super clumsy. She comes up against Navy SEAL, Grange who through his hot temper is having to do some community service at the pace that Tennyson works. But all is not smooth sailing and Grange seems to be ...more

This is the first book that I have read by this author and it certainly isnt going to be my last.
Rachel Robinson is a new author to me.
Never always was a sweet and sexy book.
Tennyson is in her own little world. She know she needs to make new friends she is also a scientist.
Grange is a navy seal and as to do some community services. Hes a total moron in the being to tennyson. I loved the banter they had and the friendship they formed then blessed in to more. They had a lot of obstacles to

I always enjoy Rachel’s books, but she outdid herself with this story. It’s definitely one of my new favorites from her. I absolutely loved how this story came full circle. It gave me chills at the end. The chemistry between Corrick and Tennyson goes from one sort of fire to another. There is so much angst in this book, but it’s also filled with so much love to balance it out. This is one story that will definitely mess with your emotions and tug on your heartstrings.

This book will give you all the feels- happiness, humor, love, danger, lust, and devastation. I would not classify this as a light-hearted read, but boy was it worth it! Rachel Robinson delivered something special with Never Always. There was a lot going on in the book when you take a step back and play out all of the situations, but they meshed well together and were needed for all the pieces of the puzzle to fit.

I don't want to go into details because a spoiler might slip out, but I loved this
