Never Say Never Blog Tour/ Review/2 Giveaways

995720_418404891608307_458847669_n Amanda goes through her young life having to survive experiences that nobody should have to. She was always quiet and found it easier to keep to herself, rather than share herself with the world. She struggled with being open and talking to anyone about what was invading her life. In her heart she believed it was much easier to keep her secrets to herself. Sometimes sharing your deepest and darkest with someone you love is the only way to free yourself.

     Will she ever be able to find that someone? Do the trials of her adolescence make her stronger in the end? Or will her world be turned upside down and she’ll be crushed under the weight of her love for another? Can she recover from the unthinkable? Will Amanda be able to pull through and find the one thing she’s always longed for and never really had…love?

I was given an ARC copy of this book. I was a little apprehensive about this book because it was about a teenager. I got over that quickly. Melinda Sutherland did a good job of drawing me in.

This is a story about Amanda Nelson. By the time Amanda reaches the ripe age of 15…she has been through hell and back. This young lady has been enduring a lot. Absentee dad, druggy mom, and so many other things. (I  don’t want to give to much away.) The one thing she does have is two great friends, Ann and Mark.

She is so unhappy and then she meets Brad. Brad makes her feel wanted but he turns out to be more pain for her. I really got into this story. I cried for her. No one should have to deal with so much!

Finally she meets Chris! Chris shows her the love and happiness that she has long for. Until something happens to Chris and Amanda is very afraid that she might lose him. Is she right or is she wrong?  Well read the book. You won’t regret it!

****Warning! It ends with a cliffhanger!***** I can’t wait for book two!

AUTHOR

Hello my name is Melinda and I am a new Indie Author. Yes I admit it I’m a newbie and came quickly crashing into writing. I also admit that I have the worst sense of grammar and punctuation out there don’t critique me on that here cause this IS unedited!LOL
I  live in a small New England town that is North of Boston. There I live with my loving and supportive husband and my two young boys. As you now know that I find my inspiration in other authors. I also have music, my amazing family, friends, and of course my awesome co-workers that all inspire me. I really enjoy reading, now writing, taking pictures, massages, coffee, chocolate, ice cream, and beer & wine.
I love to spend any free time I get playing with my boys, teaching them, taking family trips, spending time with my loved ones, going on quiet dates with my hubby, and crazy fun nights out with my girlfriends.
My first book is called Never Say Never. I self published this book on March 21, 2013. Very soon after hitting that publish button on Amazon I came to realize that my book needed a little more editing and to be revised a bit. So after some serious consideration I decided to take the book down and do what needed to be done to it.
It has taken me a bit longer than I would have liked but some things got in the way…..well that’s life for ya! I worked full force on it when time allowed and I managed to get it back up and for sale as of the end of July 2013. This book is a cliff hanger that will leave you wanting more. So be aware of that. There is a part 2 to follow, I am hoping to have it done and out in the winter of 2013 or Early 2014. Also in between I am working on another book which will be more on the contemporary romance side vs new adult.
