Product Description

Product Description

This is the conclusion to Kalli and Riot's story, part two of the Never Duet. Due to mature themes, it is intended for adult readers.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Breathtaking, emotional, and full of heart! 30 December 2015
By B from Prisoners of Print - Published on

Since Kalli and Riot hold such a special place in my heart, it’s difficult to put into words how I feel about the conclusion of their story. Anie Michaels has given these incredible characters the happily ever after they deserved and so much more. She gave them hope and healing in a way that was palpable, imparting upon her readers the incredible warmth and unconditional devotion that drove this breathtaking journey. Along with our favorite returning Never Series characters, we got to spend time with several new faces that added to the sublime comfort of Kalli and Riot’s world. In no time at all I was hooked on Riot’s family, already eager to hear some of their stories. Once again, Anie Michaels has written a sparkling story of family, loss, and love that will fill your soul and leave you breathless.

Riot is unquestionably one of my all-time favorite book boyfriends. In this novel we get to read chapters from his point of view and I was absolutely thrilled at the chance to be inside his head. Experiencing Kalli and Riot’s story from both sides helped craft their scorching chemistry and inimitable connection into something tangible and Anie Michaels definitely built up the tension in Never Tied Down. Kalli and Riot absolutely sizzled, balancing the raw emotions of their story with an intense physicality that was more than a little addictive. We also got to see a gentleness in Riot that instantly had me melting over his deep emotional honesty. As Anie Michaels revealed Riot’s pain, fears, and insecurities while he reconnected with Kalli, I found myself falling even deeper under his spell.

The development of Kalli’s character in Never Tied Down left me at a loss for words. She is so much like a piece of my own soul that I couldn’t help but feel every word of her story as I read it. Anie Michaels has perfectly captured the all-consuming emotional rollercoaster of grieving a sibling. The small nuances that trigger suffocating panic and moments of happiness clouded by gaping holes left in the world were brought to life through Kalli in a way that was simultaneously beautiful and utterly devastating. Anie Michaels allowed Kalli to heal organically and unhurried. Kalli not only moved forward with grace, but she was given the room to continue to be vulnerable and falter, embracing the character’s distinctly human nature and making her entirely unforgettable.

Falling back into Kalli and Riot’s world was effortless. Anie Michaels expertly depicts the emotional weight of loss, affording Kalli’s grief the firm hold required to be genuine and navigating the unexpected twists and turns of life that disrupt the continual process of healing. Anie Michaels has a gift for delivering exactly what her readers need along with unforeseen challenges that push her characters even further. With each new novel, Anie Michaels writes her characters with a little more heart and a little more depth, repeatedly out-doing herself and leaving me even more enamored with her incredible story-telling. Never Tied Down is a shining example of Anie’s evolution as an author, her words enchanting and emotionally charged delivering heartache and hope in a way that is undeniably hers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Never Tied Down is a story about grief, forgiveness, reunion and especially pure, unconditional love. 4 January 2016
By Andrea •Romantic Mess• - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Rarely, a book gets me all emotional and sensitive, but this book touched a soft spot in my heart. Never Tied Down is a story about grief, forgiveness, reunion and especially pure, unconditional love. Anie Michaels wrote very emotional pages that not only enhance her enormous talent but at the same time pushes you to live every step with the characters.

"Then suddenly, Riot Bentley was sitting across from me, smiling, and I didn’t know if I’d be able to stay away from him any longer"

This book starts right after that Kallie suffer a huge loss. His grief affects not only his heart but keeps it away from the person she loves most in the world, Riot.
From both points of view, I can say that each character felt closer to my heart. (Thanks Anie for that!)

I think I can not write this review without feeling again every emotion and tears as I read it. Some parts more than others. I could feel the distance between them at the beginning of the book, that was something that I expected, just not in such a deep way. At the same time I can smile when they began to build their relationship again. The way Riot love Kallie in the distance, and how does she open her heart, is something lovely to read.
The attraction is not just physical, their connection is from the heart. In a gentle way, without reservation.

“You have nothing to be sorry for, baby.  Absolutely nothing.  You did what you had to do in order to survive, I get that.  And I’m glad you’re here, now, giving us a chance to talk.”  I rubbed my thumb over the back of her knuckles, gently, but then pulled away, not wanting to push it. 

These characters are so mature, strong and positive. Kallie shone more and more as I turned the pages, just like Riot says, she becomes a beautiful butterfly. I love the way the author softened each edge of her personality.
Her personal growth, and as she realized she deserved to be loved, I think that is the part where many readers, as I connect to Kallie. Life can not always be run or flee, you have to take root next to the people who love you....

“I know we’ve been apart, Kal, but I’m here and I never really left.  I’ve just been waiting for you.” 

Riot is the most positive, thorough, careful and less selfish man I've read. He's just perfect and not even that word does justice. Anie could not have written a more perfect man for Kallie. I could feel his concern and love. he is such a good and noble man. And not just him, his family gah! amazing. Riot not only gave her love but shared his whole life, even small parts.

"I kissed her, then swept my arm under her knees and carried her back to the bed, looking forward to the rest of my life spent admiring the view of Kalli Bentley"

As always Anime style is fluid and from the first page emotions hit my heart in the most loving way she could have written.
4.0 out of 5 stars Good conclusion to Kalli and Riot 1 January 2016
By Jess (Nerdy Dirty & Flirty) - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
ddled with self-doubt and mourning, Kalli is trying to move forward with her life. Never reaching for more, just looking to get by. She misses Riot terribly but not interested in doing anything about that. When the opportunity of a life-time falls into her lap it is as if fate has more planned than to have her just standing still.

"Now I know that I was standing still before you, tethered to a good life with Marcus, but never reaching for greatness, never looking for anything more."

Riot was giving her her space, letting her grieve, letting time attempt to heal her wounds and then she is there. In a little coffee shop, in his neck of the woods and her time without him is about to come to an end. If she will talk to him that is.

After reading book one, I have to say I didn't love Kalli. Her self-worth was minimal and even though she had a hard past, some of her actions drove me mad. She redeemed herself for me in book two though, she went through a lot of changes and came out so much stronger on the other side. Riot on the other hand, I loved him. I loved his patience and understanding. He had this way about him that made me smile and hints of dirtiness that made me swoon. I can't say how happy I was to have his POV in this book and the ability to learn more about him.

The second installment came together nicely for me. I enjoyed watching both characters grow and move to a place in their lives where they can achieve all they are meant for. There was a lot of reflection and bittersweetness throughout the story. By losing her whole purpose in life, Kalli had to figure out how to live again and even find the answers to her past hurts. There was also some serious heat and the chemistry between Riot and Kalli that never dwindled and if possible grew more intense. I enjoyed this story and while not my normal, "go-to" type of book it was a nice change to get some "feels" and deeper emotional involvement with the characters.
5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful 30 December 2015

I have read all of Anie's books and her writing is beautiful and if you enjoy a good rollercoaster ride of emotions, you have found an author to love. This is the conclusion the Never Duet Series and if you read the first book then you know, once again Anie left us hanging. I do love a good cliffhanger.

It's been six months since Marcus has passed away. Six months since Kalli pushed the love of her life away. She misses both of them every day. She has been trying to move on with her life, between working and staying with her best friend Ella's family she is keeping busy which makes her think less about them but not enough to not hurt. And when the opportunity of a lifetimes comes along, her strength is tested, she has to decide if she could be in the same city as Riot. She isn't sure what she would do if she saw him again. Would she breakdown? What if he moved on? What if he doesn't even want to see her? There are so many what if's but it's time. It's time to live again...

Kalli might have pushed Riot away but he would always care about her. He needs to prove that to her but only if she was ready. He won't push, he can't stand it if she pushes him away again. But when they are around each other it's like they are home. Kalli's strength is not only tested when it comes to her relationship with Riot. It is also tested when her past collides with her present. Can she handle everything at once or will she run?

I think that Riot and Kalli's relationship is a beautiful one. Riot is sweet, supportive and when his bossy side comes out, it's down right sexy. And Kalli has a beautiful soul that needs to believe that she is capable of love and in her own strength.

Overall...The duet is a beautiful rollercoaster ride.


If you don’t want this to happen, I suggest you find somewhere else to be invisible.

“He’s part of the reason I fell in love with you.”

“One day, I’m going to get you to make love to me at a viewpoint.”

Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian I Dig Good Books.

5/5 (Exceptional)

**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!
