Eleven years ago, Lindsey Nash escaped into the night with her young daughter and left an abusive relationship. Her ex-husband, Andrew, was sent to jail and Lindsey started over with a new life.
Now, Lindsey is older and wiser, with her own business and a teenage daughter who needs her more than ever. When Andrew is finally released from prison, Lindsey believes she has cut all ties and left the past behind her. But she gets the sense that someone is watching her, tracking her every move. Her new boyfriend is threatened. Her home is invaded, and her daughter is shadowed. Lindsey is convinced it’s her ex-husband, even though he claims he’s a different person. But has he really changed? Is the one who wants her dead closer to home than she thought?
With Never Let You Go, Chevy Stevens delivers a chilling, twisting thriller that crackles with suspense as it explores the darkest heart of love and obsession.
Never Let You Go is a suspenseful read, one that will keep you anxious and guessing! The first third sets the stage with past and present chapters, giving a glimpse into Lindsey’s life and marriage, how it devolved into a terrifying mess. Lindsey gets away, we know this right away from the first chapter, and Andrew is sent to prison.
Lindsey was so in love with Andrew at first, and he was the perfect husband. Even in those blissfully happy days, Andrew showed signs of controlling behavior; gradually isolating Lindsey and chipping away at her self-confidence. The tension grew as he became increasing abusive!
Eleven years after her escape Lindsey has built a nice life for her and Sophie in a quiet, picturesque seaside town. She has her own business, and is dating an fun, easy going man, but now that Andrew’s been released she fears it’s just a matter of time before he catches up with them. Strange things begin to happen and Lindsey is convinced Andrew is responsible. Her daughter Sophie is not so sure. Was her dad really that bad?
It’s really hard to write a review without spoiling things, so I guess I’ll just say the story was riveting! I read late into the night to see how it all played out. I have mixed emotions about how it all ended up romance wise, but the mystery was thrilling.
