How many times would you die for love?
What if you had to relive the same five days over and over?

And what if at the end of it, your boyfriend is killed…

And you have to watch. Every time.

You don’t know why you’re stuck in this nightmare.

But you do know that these are the rules you now live by:

Wake Up.




Now, the only way to escape this loop is to attempt something crazy. Something dangerous. Something completely unexpected. This time…you’re not going to run.

Combining heart-pounding romance and a thrilling mystery Never Apart is a stunning story you won’t soon forget.

I love Romily's work. I really loved her series, Find Me. When I was sent this for review, I was so ecstatic and then I shelved it and forgot about it, whoops. But then I picked it up to read. I actually had to put it down because I didn't know if I was going to like it. At first, this was way confusing and irritating, going back and forth between the past and present. I mean, literally, each chapter went back and forth. One chapter was the present and the next it was the past. I actually put this down and starting working on other projects (like my crafting) for a few weeks. I read some reviews and every review I read was raving about it. So, because I absolutely loved her other work, I decided to give it a try again. I was really glad that I did. This story moved quickly and I read it in 2 days, which is not an easy feat for me since I have 2 kids and a new dog that requires my full attention haha. 

So we have 4 main characters. Grace, Jem, Ander and Finn. It starts off with Grace and Ander running through a swamp, trying to get away from Finn because they think he's trying to kill them again. Yep, you heard that right, again. Then we are thrown into a past/present type telling. We hear about the past which coincides with the present and what Grace is going through at present. Throughout the book, we learn of her different "falls" and we get to see what everyone is like. I, myself, wasn't too fond of Ander from the beginning, he just felt kind of shady and just not good for Grace. But of course, as the saying goes, you can't help who you love. I really want to go into more detail on this, but I really don't want to spoil the book for everyone.

This quickly turned into a fast paced thriller/love story/mystery. I really enjoyed it. I suggest that you go pick it up and find out for yourself.

Romily Bernard graduated from Georgia State University with a Literature degree. Since then, she’s worked as a riding instructor, cell phone salesgirl, personal assistant, groom, exercise rider, accounting assistant, and, during a very dark time, customer service rep.
So don’t let anyone tell you a BA degree will keep you unemployed.
Her YA thrillers FIND ME, REMEMBER ME, LIE FOR ME, AND TRUST ME are now available.
