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.
Review by: Erin
OMG!!! I am so emotional after reading this story. This story has all the “feels” that you look for in an amazing book. Kalli and Riot have worked their way into my heart and will likely stay there forever. Kalli has been heartbroken and is still reeling. With the help of her friends and an amazing man (Riot), she will surface on the other side stronger than ever. Riot is even better in this second book, if that is even possible. He is what dream men are made of. He is the ultimate package. He is caring and compassionate. He is also very romantic, loving, understanding, and one h*ll of a dirty talker! I love the relationship he has with his family and that they take to Kalli like fish to water. This part of their story will fill you with hope and love. Their connection is soul deep and their chemistry is explosive. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!
Review by: Leeann
This is a stunning conclusion to Riot and Kalli's story. And it picks up exactly where book 1 left off.
I had moments reading this story where I just wanted to jump right in to the pages and wrap Kalli up in cotton wool, And Riot for that matter. He is truly a man in love and will do anything for Kalli.
In this book not only does Riot and Kalli's story come full circle but so do Kalli's issues.
She resolves a lot of things and the outcome is one I didn't see coming but it was spot on. I don't think it could have been written any better than it was.
I felt a lot of emotion over the course of these 2 books and may have even have shed a tear or 2!
If you like books that make you feel and led yu to think you know where it's going only to find out you don't and are suprise by what happens, then you most definitely want to check this one out.
Anie Michaels has done a fantastic job bringing Riot and Kalli to life in a story that sets the scene for a once in a life time love that quite literally brings them to their knees and resurrects them into a beautiful couple that realize their strength lies in them being together and as long as they are together they can overcome anything life throws at them.
Definitely well worth reading this series!

Review by: Erin
I LOVE this book! I am so in love with Kalli and Riot. I loved Kalli’s character from The Never Series. She was very intriguing and caught my attention. I am so happy that she got her story. Kalli’s story has devastation written all over it. It is so emotional. If you don’t cry, you don’t have a feeling in your body. Kalli is a very fierce character. By that I mean that she is very sure of herself and her place in life. She has been dealt a sh*t hand and has come out the other side a better person. She could have taken the easy way out, but that is not her nature. I love the relationship she has with her brother. They are very close and have an amazing bond. She is not prepared for Riot, or the feelings he brings out in her. Riot has become one of my Top Ten BBF’s. He is the complete package. He is just an amazing man. The cliffhanger ending will leave you bawling like a baby and needing the second book immediately.

“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
