Product Description

Product Description

This is a spin off duet for Kalli from The Never Series. This book can be read without reading any previous Never books. The book is part of a duet, so the final conclusion will come at the end of book 2.

I’ve spent my life avoiding attachments. I learned early on, from the person who should have loved me most, I only drag others down. So instead, I made it my goal to live in a way that never affected anyone else. I don’t build friendships. I don’t start relationships. I move from place to place, from person to person, never standing still and never putting down roots.

That is, until one day when everything comes crashing down around me and I’m left with the one person who needs me the most. He opens me up and makes me vulnerable. He’s not a secret, but a treasure, and I’ll protect him the only way I know how – even if it makes loving anyone else impossible.

This is a full-length novel and is intended for adult readers due to mature themes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful!! 12 May 2015
By Sandra Shipman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Anie has done it once again...she has cut deeply into my heart with another emotional ride and I love her for it. Her writing is flawless and beautiful. You meet Kalli throughout the Never Series but you do not need to read it to read her story.

Kalli is a costume designer and takes her all over the place for work on T.V and movie sets but the one that changes her life happens to be a last minute job on a music video. When she meet the male lead for the video she feels something there but she is not the type to date and she has a feeling if she got close to Riot, she would be breaking her own rules and it would break her in the end.

Kalli has to think not just about herself, but about her younger brother that has special needs. She is his only family and her responsibility. She is afraid to get close to anyone and then have them leave when it is too much for them to handle. When Riot actually gets Kalli to open up to him about her fears, he is understanding and will not let her push him away. He wants her and wants to prove to her that he will not just go away.

Riot and Kalli have to figure out where things are going and being long distance is hard but it also makes them get to know each other on a more personal level and not just on a physical one. And once Riot meets Marcus, Kalli's brother things click. Riot doesn't see Marcus as a deal breaker, he sees him as a perk. But can Kalli take the risk of loving Riot and having him get close to Marcus? Will the distance just be too much for them?

I loved Riot and Kalli's story! Riot is carefree, funny, sexy and sweet. He sees right through Kalli and is very patient with her. Many men would just say F-it and move on to the next woman but not Riot. And Kalli is independent, stubborn and a very loving sister. She only wants the best for Marcus. That doesn't mean I didn't want to smack her a few times. Is Riot what is good for Marcus?

I highly recommend this book. Hardcore. It is unique and emotional. I laughed, cried, swooned. It made me happy, mad and sad. What a ride and you will not regret getting on. I can't wait for the next book.

Quotes:

“Okay, you’ve got a deal, but I’m warning you: I don’t give in easily.”

“You couldn’t keep count?” I raised my eyebrow at him.
“Of course I counted, I just wanted to see if our numbers were the same, wanted to make sure you didn’t sneak one past me,” he said with a wink.

“I’m not asking you to rearrange your life, I’m just asking to be allowed in. I just want in.”

5.0 out of 5 stars Riot is awesome. Can't wait for more! 12 May 2015
By Kara Hildebrand - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
*4.5 stars*
Anie Michaels is such a fabulous writer. Reading one of her books is such a joy for the senses. We met Kalli in the other books in the Never Series and she has always intrigued me. Something about her quietness always made you think she was holding herself back even from her best friend, Ella. Kalli has a lot of baggage that she carries with her and it's heartbreaking. She's successful and travels for work, but she rushes home to care for her brother and doesn't really live her life for herself. When she gets a last minute call for a job that she can't turn down, her life flips upside down when she meets Riot. She is instantly attracted to him, but she knows it can't be anything serious because of the life she lives. She travels a lot and cares for her brother and believes she has no time for a love life. Riot is persistent and gets Kalli to agree to a day together. She can't hide her attraction and she finally gives in. It's wonderful and passionate but short lived when tragedy strikes. Will Kalli push everyone that loves her away? Can she let Riot in before it's too late? I can't wait to read the conclusion to their story!

"It's nice to meet you," Riot said. Sweet baby Jesus. His voice was deep and musical. I'd never met anyone with a voice I wanted to listen to forever, but his was gorgeous.

Riot scoffed. "If you know a man who could build this house himself, I don't want to meet him. I would melt into a pool of emasculated mush around him, I’m sure."

"That's all I've got, Kal. I'm offering myself, any part of me that you will take."

4.0 out of 5 stars Never Standing Still 12 May 2015
By Erin G - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
3.5 Stars
When Kalli Rivers is hired as the costume designer for the latest "It" girl's music video, she is thrilled! She knows what a great opportunity it is for her career and is prepared to work hard and prove herself. What Kalli doesn't count on is Riot Bentley, the video's male lead. He is an up and coming model and actor with an eye for Kalli. Riot soon learns that Kalli has high walls built up and breaking through them might be harder than he thought.
Kalli was an interesting character. She has dealt with so much loss and pain that she guards her heart fiercely. Even when someone makes it in, Kalli struggles to admit it, even to herself. I liked that she was stubborn, scared, somewhat flawed.
I really enjoyed Riot. He was a breath of fresh air; sweet, funny, persistent, open, and loving. It was easy to see how someone with relationship phobias could cave to a man like Riot.
Never Standing Still wasn't your typical love story. Kalli and Riot's romance was a bit different from most of the books I read as much of their time together is spent apart. We see them grow close from a distance, living in separate states and only connecting over the phone and Skype. I really liked how Anie Michaels was able to show the progression of their relationship and their feelings even though they were rarely together. Kalli's constant self sabotaging did grow tiring at times but I was excited when things were going smoothly. When Kalli and Riot were together, sparks flew! Their chemistry was palpable.
I had not read Michaels' Never Series prior to reading this and I did not feel as though I was missing anything. I was intrigued with the side characters stories and would like to read their story but it wasn't essential to my enjoyment of this book.
Anie Michaels delivered a well written, solid novel with endearing characters and an engaging storyline. I can't wait to read the rest of Kalli and Riot's story in the next book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Anie once again crafts a beautiful, emotional read 16 May 2015
By SJF - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Anie once again crafts a book I couldn't put down. The characters, setting and storyline are wonderful.

We met some of the characters in Anie's Never Series. Kalli was more of a supporting character in that series and a bit of a mystery. We find out why she is closed off and guarded in Never Standing Still. My heart goes out to her and her struggles. That said, there were times I wanted to shake her and say, "look at what you have girl...he is a keeper". Because of her history you just can't hate her. I felt for her and was praying for a happily ever after. She is sweet, selfless and caring for everyone in her life. She forgets that she deserves a life of her own and happiness.

Riot, oh Riot, what an amazing guy! He is the true heart and soul and star of this story! He is thoughtful, sincere, caring and loyal. He wears his heart on his sleeve and really loves Kalli! He is by no means a pushover though. He has a hot alpha component to his personality.

Kalli has setbacks, because of her past and doesn't feel like it is safe to let anyone get too close to her...for them or herself. She is a roadblock to her own happiness. When she decides to choose love will live throw her another roadblock to happiness?

There is great happiness and crushing heartbreak masterfully woven throughout this book. It sets the scene for an emotional and captivating read.

The book ends with a cliffhanger and I can't wait to read the rest of their story.

I won a complimentary copy of this book. It is the best prize I have won in quite some time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant!!!!! 12 May 2015
By Iowa Gal - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Never Standing Still by the very talented Anie Michaels is absolutely without a doubt fantastic!!!
Kalli and Riot
Where do I even start? I fell in love with Kalli and Riot's story from the very beginning. They are two very genuine people. These characters are very real and you can feel their emotions throughout the entire book. The way Anie Michaels writes, she places the reader right into the story. The story flows very nicely and kept my attention the entire time. To be honest, I couldn't put my Kindle down while reading Never Standing Still.
Now let me get back to emotions. Like I stated earlier, you can feel EVERY single emotion the characters are feeling and going through. My emotions while reading this book went from laughing out loud to AWW that's so romantic to WOW that's HOT to an ....wait, I can't tell you that..you need to read it for yourself!!! I was on an emotional rollercoaster of a ride and I didn't want it to stop. You may think you know what's going to happen, however you will not know until you reach the last few pages.
It has been a few days since I have finished this book. Let me say this, Never Standing Still stays with you way after you finish it. It's a book that I will be recommending to everyone and anyone who will listen to me.
The story of Riot and Kalli leave you on the edge of your seat and definitely wanting MORE!!! I can not wait for the next book!!
Never Standing Still was beautifully written and very, very, very emotional. I give this book FIVE Brilliant Stars!!
