About the Author
I’m a full time radiology technologist living in rural Wisconsin with my farmer husband, our crazy but wonderful children, and our mischevious black lab. My days are always constant chaos so I use it as inspiration and jot down notes whenever I can. I never know when an idea will strike. History, crime and paranormal romance genres interest me the most, but if it has an intriguing storyline then genre doesn’t matter. When it comes to my own writing, however, I can’t seem to get vampires and the paranormal out of my head. Maybe one day I’ll branch out, but for now I’ll just keep putting parts of myself into the stories to create a unique and unforgettable read.

Alyse Nennig’s story was a fantastic joyride of vampires and vampire hunters, filled with brutal fights and sensual nights that flesh out this story beautifully. The reader is given a solid history of both characters so that as the story progresses you can see the conflicts before they occur, but the inevitable twists keep you guessing from one page to the next. In Never Again you know both Hannah and John have secrets but what really kept me interested was that there were secrets of which Hannah was unaware, adding a new layer of intrigue to the story.
While this is a romance it isn’t just a romance, so if you’re into vampire fights, steamy scenes of intimacy and a bit of a mystery then this story will appeal to you on several levels. Alyse Nennig is a new author to me but I wouldn’t hesitate to give her next book a read.
~ Judi E. Easley for Blue Cat Review
I always wonder how authors arrive at the title for their books. I didn't have to wonder for long with this title, and it seemed to echo in my head the whole time I read the book.
The voice changes throughout the story as we get each character's point of view. There's some vampire violence and there's some hot vampire sex. The writing is a bit stilted at the beginning, but it smooths out and flows much better as the book goes on. There doesn't seem to be a lot of description, so not a lot of visuals here. This is paranormal with dystopian shadows.
The story itself is entirely engaging. Both of the main characters were well developed with really great family histories. John was keeping secrets because of what he was. Hannah thought she was keeping secrets, but there were so many more secrets that had been kept from her. Some of the secondary characters had some good development as well and interacted really well. How could you not love Price? I'm sure Ms. Nennig will have to find a love interest for him in the future. Chris seemed like a character I'd like to know more about, too. Hopefully, we'll see her in the next book.
I think this is an author and a series with great potential. I recommend this book to the paranormal lovers out there. This just came out in December last year, so now we just have to give Alyse time to write Book of Origins #2.

A vampire and a vampire hunter meet at a club, that could be the beginning of a joke but this book is anything but a joke, in fact it is a book filled with surprises and secrets.
Hannah Jacobs is a vampire hunter and meets John Trott, a vampire at a club where there is an instant attraction between them. Neither of them knows about the other and that is just one of many secrets they have. In addition to the secrets they have from each other there are secrets that neither of them are aware of. I have to do this review very carefully because it would be so easy to reveal spoilers and that is something I do not want to do. It seems that every time I think there can be no more secrets there are.
Hannah and John fall madly in love with each other and he has no idea what she does and she has no idea what he is. Hannah’s parents were both killed by vampires and it would not be surprising if she hated them. As their relationship gets stronger John is the only one who knows that his secret could destroy her love for him. John is more than just an ordinary vampire and that is something I really would love to divulge but won’t. I mention it only to wet your appetite and believe me there is so much more.
Hannah and her fellow agents are assigned to find and destroy the Vampire Prince a job that is more dangerous than anything they have ever done, it is an assignment that could leave Hannah and her friends dead at the hands of a vicious, dangerous and blood thirsty vampire.
Hannah is in possession of the Book of Origins which her father left for her and it is up to John’s human friend Price to translate it and find out it’s meaning. There is a belief that the book could hold the means of a cure for vampirisim, something that vampires want destroyed and humans would want to eliminate them.
The secondary characters in this book are every bit as wonderful as the main characters and each is an important part of Hannah’s life. Is it possible for Price to find answers to curing vampirisim? Could John be cured and live a normal life with Hannah? At this point I want to reveal everything because it is hard not to share but I won’t share because it will take away from everything you should discover on your own. Believe me this book doesn’t give you a chance to say “What the —–” before something else happens.
The book does end in somewhat of a cliffhanger but not one that makes me want to throw the book out the window, it just makes me hungry for the next one which I hope will be soon.
I like the fast pace of the vampire action/fight scenes as well as the slow burn of the more intimate scenes.
This was my first read from this author and I really enjoyed it. I would definitely read more.
