RELEASE BLITZ & REVIEW: Never Tied Down (Never Duet) by Anie Michaels

Title: Never Tied Down
Series: Never Duet #2
Author: Anie Michaels
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: December 29, 2015
I miss him. 
I miss Marcus. 
I miss Riot. 
I miss them. 

Pushing Riot away when Marcus died was an act of desperate self-preservation. I didn’t love him any less, didn’t blame him for Marcus’ death, but I couldn’t be with him and deal with the crushing weight of guilt that tore me down every single day. 

So, I moved on. Or tried to, anyway. 

Life, of course, pushed us back together. 

I still don’t know if I’m strong enough to keep myself away from him. Or if I even want to. 

Besides, something tells me life isn’t done trying to break me.

5 out of 5 (Exceptional)

Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian I Dig Good Books.


**I received a copy of this book from Enticing Journey in exchange for a fair and honest review**

Whew! This book is absolutely phenomenal! It's a book, as long as you've read Never Standing Still, that you don't want to start emotionally, but you force yourself to, because you have to find out how Riot and Kalli's story end.  Naturally, without a second guess, Anie doesn't disappoint her readers in yet another story.  This book is emotionally draining, but this book is also incredibly exciting and ends on a happy note!

This story is written in such a way I think that anyone that is dealing or has dealt with death of a close family member, could relate to this story.  I think it was written with incredible grace and patience.  The grieving wasn't rushed and felt natural. It felt real. 

Anie doesn't disappoint her readers that love a good hot steamy bedroom scene either. She has written a few of them in this story and I don't think she really spared any detail. It was written in a classy way but don't get me wrong, they were HOT and STEAMY! I don't think there is anything about it that you could dislike.

As all of Anie's books go, there are twists and turns and soul grabber moments in the story.  Just when you don't think you can read any more sadness, that bright moment in the cloudy sky opens up, and a bright ray of sunshine shines through.  Just the same, when the book seems to be going all smiles and cheer, there is a moment that jeopardizes that.  She keeps you on your toes and doesn't write a story that you can guess what will happen from page one.

Without giving anything away or spoiling the book for you: THE END, OH MY GOSH THE END!! High five girl, you wrote that ending like a boss! It was not what I was expecting and was done so perfectly and felt so natural I hated that the story was ending!  It fit into Riot and Kalli's story so perfectly! Ah, take my word on this, you gotta read this story!

“Anie Michaels has this writing style that I absolutely LOVE! She captivates her readers and she knows when at the right moment to throw in a twist and turn. I highly recommend Never Tied Down!!! This book is hands down five amazing stars!!! LOVED IT!!!” - 5 Star Review (Iowa Gal)
“This story came out and grabbed me hard and infiltrated in my heart and soul, to even stay there even after I was done reading the books. This story is so fantastic that it's so unlike anything I've ever read before. I can't find the right words to describe it. It's a beautiful emotional journey that will leave you smiling.” - 5 Star Review (Winchester Book Reviews)
“Holy cow! I could not have even imagined the ending! This one has almost left me speechless with the emotions.” - 5 Star Review (Goodreads)


Anie Michaels is the author of The Never series, The Private Serials, and a stand alone novel, The Space Between Us. She started writing her first novel in June 2013. When she is not working, reading, writing, or spending time with her family, you can find her spending time with her close friends. Anie lives in Portland, Oregon, with her family.


“Let me first say wow just when you don't think it can get any better anie has a way of blowing your mind. I absolutely loved meeting kalli through porter and Ella but reading her book was amazing.”~ Hooked on Books ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Never Standing Still Review
“Anie gets better every time I read her. Three series’ and I am hungering for more. Anie’s descriptions are spot on and pull you into the story. I delight in the twists and turns that she sticks in the story line.”~ Author Taisheena Rayne ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Never Standing Still Review
“There is so much emotion that will be pulled and picked at from reading this book. Every time you think you know, like the know it all readers we are, we’re are proven wrong…... I honestly have no idea how or where Anie is going to go with the conclusion of Kalli and Riot’s story and that makes me nervous but I need it like now.” ~Red Cheeks Reads ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Never Standing Still Review

If you missed the first teaser, don't worry! You can still find it and other great content on the Blaze Publishing blog.

"To cure fear, you must use fear."

Rose Briar claims no responsibility for the act that led to her imprisonment in an asylum. She wants to escape, until terrifying nightmares make her question her sanity and reach out to her doctor. He's understanding and caring in ways her parents never have been, but as her walls tumble down and Rose admits fault, a fellow patient warns her to stop the medications. Phillip believes the doctor is evil and they'll never make it out of the facility alive. Trusting him might be just the thing to save her. Or it might prove the asylum is exactly where she needs to be.





ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

AUTHOR. CHICKEN (AND DOG) LOVER. MOTHER. WIFE. DREAMER.

I’m happily married to the love of my life (don’t gag) and raising three beautiful children in the gorgeous state of Virginia. We live just outside Washington, D.C., and every day I wake up to find myself stuck in traffic trying to get there.

The horrid commute gives me plenty of time to zone out and think about my characters in full, brilliant details (I’m a safe driver; don’t worry). Stories give me a way to forget about the sometimes smelly strangers sitting next to me on the fifty mile trek into town (I pick up hitchhikers every day. True story. Check out www.slug-lines.com if you don’t believe me).

I’ve been a part of organized hitchhiking for nearly fifteen years, but that’s just one small aspect of my oh-so-large life. When I’m not working, commuting, or chasing after my three children (four if you count the man), you can usually find me outside talking to my chickens like they’re the cutest things in the world (they are), or training my amazing dogs how to herd said chickens (which they love), or curled up on the sofa with a good book (why can’t that be 100% of the time?).

I hope you love my stories (or just like them a little; that would be okay, too). And I hope that one day you find your passion, because there’s nothing in life better than doing what you love while surrounded by people you love.

<3 Krystal

BLOG TOUR & #GIVEAWAY - Through a Glass, Darkly by Layla Wolfe

Title: Through a Glass, Darkly
Series: Assasssins of Youth MC Book One
Author: Layla Wolfe
Genre: MC Romance
Release Date: December 21, 2015

MAHALIA
I didn’t want to be born. Something went wrong along the way, and I’ve been unsure about my purpose on this earth ever since. If I was hit by a car, if I fell off a cliff, would anyone care? Living in Cornucopia with my sister wives under the watchful eye of our husband, Allred Lee Chiles, has turned me into a robot, unable to feel or think for myself. I’ve been looking through a cloudy glass, not trusting myself or others.

But a man came down from the mountains. I’m captivated by Gideon Fortunati, his name expressing all that he is—keeper of my fate, master of reality, teacher of my future. Gideon’s purifying power has enlightened me about my capabilities. I don’t have to let The Prophet take my daughter and marry her off to that old man. I was guilty of dirt and sin, but I can take my life back now. 

GIDEON
I was exiled to this godforsaken wasteland in Utah by our MC Prez. My entire existence has been a struggle, a futile tirade against my maker. I ranted against my fate, and in answer I was sent Mahalia. A naive victim of that twisted false Mormon sect leader. He’s tried to mangle her like a spineless puppet, like he has all the other women—the other girls. 

Before I met her, I was a child. Now I’ve given up childish ways, and I can see everything in a mirror, face to face. Faith, hope, and love were all handed to me, and the greatest of these is love. I’ve come too far. There’s no surrender now.

It didn't look that far on the map.






"Follow Gideon and Mahalia on their journey Through a Glass and discover the twists and turns that have made this my new favorite book by Layla Wolfe. I look forward to the next in the series and would definitely recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading well written stories with an adventurous and sexy theme." ~ Nikki, Tasty Wordgasms 

"It kept a steady pace throughout and was well written. I enjoyed the fact that it was done in dual POVs and did have a few laughs." ~ Michelle Booklover, One Click Aholics
