BLOG TOUR - Never Let You Fall by Michele G Miller (Review & Giveaway)

Title: Never Let You Fall
Author: Michelle G. Miller
Genre: YA Fantasy 
Published: May 1st 2013
Orphaned at 7, with no memory of her past or the family she lost, 17 year old Skye Martin is tired of being alone and afraid. After a hard night of partying, Skye wakes up alone in an unfamiliar hotel. All she can remember is the deep voice of her rescuer and his promise: “I am safe.” 

Xander has been tasked with watching Skye from afar for the past two years, in order to keep her safe from the demons that hunt her. An easy job - until a pair of red glowing eyes reveal themselves to Skye, and Xander, in a moment of weakness, is forced to break his cover to protect her. Never good at trusting people, Skye is inexplicably drawn to Xander and the immediate bond she feels for him. However, Xander is filled with secrets and ties to her past that threaten to thrust Skye into a world she could never imagine existed… 

As she begins to unravel the truth about who Xander is and the details surrounding her family, she discovers that she might just be the key to saving everything... And, most importantly, she finds that there has always been someone by her side who would never let her fall…


This was a very enjoyable read. Filled with action and romance it had me hooked from the very first page.
I really liked the characters. Although Skye has been through a lot she is still fighting on, even if she does spend most of her nights drinking her sorrows away. I liked her reaction when Xander first explained everything to her. It was realistic. She didn't just straight away believe him but I still think she gave in too quickly. Xander I loved. He is so loyal and protective of Skye. Their love is forbidden and they know it will never work but they can't fight their feelings for one another. I loved the back-story behind how Xander knew Skye. I thought that justified the somewhat insta-love. The story is told in dual POV so I really liked getting both Xander's and Skye's side of things.
There is plenty of action and suspense that will keep the reader engaged in the story and there are plenty of twists and turns too. The story was kept moving and never lagged behind. 
Be warned. There is a mahoosive cliffhanger at the end! At first I didn't quite believe that that was the end. I kept turning the pages on my kindle looking for another page but nope. Now I can't wait for the second book to find out what the frick happened!
A thoroughly exciting and engaging read. 

As her Guardian, I was not supposed to make contact with her.  I was to watch her from afar and keep her safe until it was time for her to learn about us.  As I thought about the consequences I would probably face because of this night, I felt her shoulders start to shake.  She was crying quietly and I leaned in, trying to hear what she was mumbling.

“Are you safe?” she whispered brokenly over and over.  I remained quiet for a few minutes, waiting for her to say more, but she just kept repeating herself.
Finally, she managed to voluntarily move her arms and pushed her hair back from her face.  Still unsteady on her feet, she looked over her shoulder and raised big brown eyes to my face.  They were dilated still, but seemed a little clearer.  She stared into my eyes as she spoke once more, “Are you safe?” 
I couldn’t pretend that I didn’t know what she was asking, as I looked into those eyes and saw the tears stream down her pale face.  Her voice was shaky, and the small hand that held the hair back from her face was trembling. 
Although I could tell she was standing a bit straighter, I was still supporting most of her weight.  Sighing, I resigned myself to the trouble I was about to get myself into. 
“Yes, Skye.” I leaned down, holding her eyes with my own. “I promise you, I am safe.” 
She gasped as she heard my answer, and to my astonishment, immediately broke into loud sobs as she crumpled into my chest.  I sank down to the tile floor and held her close to my chest as she cried. 
The steaming hot water of the shower pulsed down on us and washed her tears down the drain, along with the last of my resolve to stay away from her.


About the Author:
Having grown up in both the cold, quiet town of Topsham, Maine and the steamy, southern hospitality of Mobile, Alabama, Michele is something of a enigma.  She is an avid Yankees fan, loves New England, being outdoors and misses snow.  However she thinks southern boys are hotter, Alabama football is the only REAL football out there and sweet tea is the best thing this side of heaven and her children’s laughter! 

Her family, a doting husband and three awesome  minions, have planted their roots in the middle of Michele’s two childhood homes in Charlotte, North Carolina. 

Never Let You Fall is Michele’s first novel and she is beyond thrilled to have finally followed up on a dream she has held for over 20 years!  God willing there will be many many more books to follow.
