Can a tattooed, former bad boy leave his past behind? Can he find lasting happiness with the love of his life?

Gorgeous and sexy Chase Gartner hopes to do just that with Kay Stanton. But when Chase’s troubled teen brother, Will, stays on in Harmony Creek, Ohio—-after an unexpected arrival-—Chase and Kay’s bonds of love and commitment are soon tested.

Chase finds himself caught up in secrets—-and revisiting a past he thought he’d left behind—-when Will makes a number of irresponsible decisions. Despite Chase’s attempts to keep his brother out of trouble, Will’s reckless behavior continues, affecting not only Chase and Kay, but other residents in disastrously so.

But it’s the final, potentially deadly decision Will makes when his girlfriend runs into trouble back in Las Vegas that leads Chase to make a fateful decision of his own. A choice that threatens his relationship with Kay.

Never Doubt Me is a touching, poignant story of love, redemption, and coming to grips with the fact that escaping the past is never easy.

New Adult/Contemporary Romance genres. 2nd novel in the Judge Me Not series.

***warning: contains explicit sexual situations, drug use, some violence, and profanity***


Never Doubt Me is a continuation of the story between Chase and Kay.  S.R. Grey brings back the depth of emotion through the deeply embedded love, guilt, and need for redemption.  All the lovely elements of book one is present in this sequel.  If you are fan of the first book, you will enjoy the storyline that propels our protagonists into both familiar and new sets of challenges.  Written from the first person perspective, the reader gets to delve into the thought process of our characters.  This POV makes the elements of the story deeply personal.  It taps into the authenticity of the emotions.  

As we experienced at the end of the first book, I Stand Before You, Chase and Kay are perfect for each other and it is deeply satisfying to see them together trying to figure out their future.  As you might expect, life is not simple and the couple is challenged by the appearance of Chase's younger brother, Will.  Will is embroiled in a mess himself and it spills over into the Kay and Chase's lives. I feel dread for what comes next. 

This is a bridge story.  The narrative gets more complicated and there are no resolutions.  If there is one weakness to this book, it is that cannot stand alone. This book serves to heighten the drama, propel the narrative forward, and leave us wanting for more. I'm not a huge fan of cliffhangers and I feel feel anxious about the possible dark direction of where the next book may take us. 

If you are already a fan of the first book, you will appreciate this installment of the series.  There is definitely an assumption that you will have read the first book. If you're new, you are definitely going to want to start I Stand Before You because you're not going to want to miss out on how this all started.
