Never Apart by Romily Bernard--I Just Have A lot of Feelings, Okay?

How many times would you die for love?

What if you had to relive the same five days over and over?

And what if at the end of it, your boyfriend is killed…

And you have to watch. Every time.

You don’t know why you’re stuck in this nightmare.

But you do know that these are the rules you now live by:

Wake Up.




Now, the only way to escape this loop is to attempt something crazy. Something dangerous. Something completely unexpected. This time…you’re not going to run.

Combining heart-pounding romance and a thrilling mystery Never Apart is a stunning story you won’t soon forget.


What a stunning read. I mean wow. I wasn't expecting to feel so strongly about this book. 

THE ABOUT:Grace is stuck in a time warp. Every five days--she relives a single moment--the moment where her boyfriend dies and she has to watch, over and over again.

Every single time she tries to stop it and every single time she fails. 

THE FEELINGS:I have to be honest I didn't read the blurb before today. 

I seen that the book was written by Romily Bernard, and I picked it up. That's it. 

I am oh so glad I did. 

Stunning. Did I say stunning?

It's so beautifully written, that I was completely enraptured by the story. The twists, the turns, the thrills--the mysteries.

All of it was done so well. 

I loved the whole parallel universe deal. It was then and now, and then, and then now. All of it was effortless. Not once did I find myself lost or confused--that sometimes happens when stories are being told this way. But, no, no Romily came through--with that good writing and made it happen!

And I just have a lot of feelings, okay?

The story is told in only one perspective--but I felt like I knew how every single character felt--from page to page. 

What's funny about this book is that it reads as multiple genres--and it felt right. It was like a sci-fi, contemporary, thriller romance. Can all books be like this?

Anyway, the characters are solid in this one--you won't be left with any what if's, there's no unanswered questions. Nothing to agonize you with--nothing but beautiful writing here folks. 

Now some of you may disagree--I won't understand it but, some of you will. You'll be wrong--but you're entitled to your opinion. :P

I think for some it may be a bit overwhelming but it was just enough for me. I was awash with emotion and avid anticipation for everything that happened here.

As mentioned, this book is a parallel universe sort of deal--and I think that's what makes it so good. You get the what if, without even having to wonder. What if she chose this or that? What if she didn't go down that road, kind of thing? You'll find it all out. I mean what reader wouldn't love that?

I feel like a discombobulated, inarticulate ball of emotions. I just really love this book. And I don't feel that way often, you guys know that. 

Let me wrap this up, because well, I'm doing this piss poorly. 

Just get the book it's so good. 

Here are some of my favorite quotes:

"His smile turned the words to butter, made the vowels slide." (That is so clever, come on now!)

"I would do anything to be your everything..."

"..If I hadn't come to Boone, I would have never met you and I know I would've missed that--missed you. I would never have known your name or your face, but I would've known the absence of you, the gap that was left in me because you were never there."


"Everyone thinks grief is this thing you can get away from, and it isn't. One minute you're fine, then you'll hear a laugh like theirs--and" he shakes his head--"grief isn't a thing you live with. It's a thing that lives in you."



  1. How did I miss this? I love this author! Crap, I need to grab this now. Wonderful review!

  2. "I would do anything to be your everything." Oh. My. God. I'm sold with that one line. LOL Romily Bernard is new to me but how can I not be swayed by this gush-fest? :) I'm off to Amazon, my friend.

  3. Love that the book gave you the feelings, haha, seriously a good book right? & I love that you didn't read the blurb and just picked it up because of the writer. I should do that too, because some blurbs give the book away.

  4. Oh wow! I haven't heard of this one and I'm glad you brought it to my attention. It looks like a read I would also really enjoy. I have a feeling that I need to check out this author's work!
