Editorial Reviews

Review

~ "Regnery offers a modern twist on Hansel and Gretel, intertwining the fairy tale with a star-crossed lovers theme...Their love scenes are steamy and deliciously intense, and they are tethered to each other in a way that springs off the pages, ensnaring you in their bond." --RT Book Reviews, 4.5-stars

~ "
I have no idea when this book will stop holding my heart hostage but even though this book-hangover is fierce, I wouldn't have wanted it any other way." -- Dottie D'Amour, Rave and Rant about Raunch

~ "
It's a heartbreaking yet joyous and uplifting tale of unconditional and truly selfless love. And it's the kind of happily ever after that fairytales are made of." --Ruth, Blithely Bookish

~ "I feel this novel is a stunning achievement; so deep, intense and moving. I was blown away by it, and the characters resonated for a long time after I finished!" -- Tessa Shapcott, former Mills & Boon editor

~ "
Staying true to her tag line, this book is a little bit heat, a little bit sweet with a whole lot of HEA, but this time there is also a little bit of darkness and angst done well." -- Jaime, Fan Fiction Book Reviews

~ "
These two are beautifully complex and superbly developed characters in that you experience their growth and transformation as the grapple with their fierce love for each other..." -- Suzanne, Slut Sistas Book Reviews

~ "
I applaud Ms. Regnery for this outstanding and remarkable story. I wish she could have seen me as I read the final words delivering to her a standing ovation for Never Let Me Go." --Tami Talbert, The Book Enthusiast

~ "I have so many feelings after reading this book and all of them amount to a fantastic 5 star read." -- Micky, Jo & Isa Love Books

From the Author

Dear Reader,

This book is a bit of a departure for me. It's dark. Not midnight black dark, but there is some serious darkness in this book. There is also...

Regret.
Betrayal.
Abduction.
Loss.
Madness.
Abuse.
Passion.
Reformation.
Forgiveness...

and True Love. ♥

This book is part of the same series of standalone modern fairytales that includes The Vixen and the Vet, and like The Vixen and the Vet (which dealt with the real-life issues of war, IED injuries and the treatment of returning veterans) this story will be a good deal edgier than my Heart of Montana or Blueberry Lane books.

However - of course, as always - I guarantee a happy ending.

I hope you enjoy Holden and Griselda's story.

Katy
xoxo

"I missed you like crazy. I'll love you forever."

When I first saw that blurb I knew that I had to read this book. It sounded angsty, emotional, and oh so beautiful at the same time. And after finishing reading it I can definitely tell you that it was all those things, and more. Never Let You Go was a heart wrenchingly beautiful story about soul mates that get reunited after ten years apart and a tragedy that marked them both. The entire time I was reading I had knots in my stomach. That alone should tell you something.

This is a story inspired by Hansel and Gretel but it's with a brilliant spin. Holden and Griselda first met as foster children and formed a bond that tethered them together for life. When sent on an errand together by their foster mother, they get abducted and live through three years of brutal captivity and mental abuse at the hands of a monster. When they get the opportunity to run, tragically one of them doesn't make it and it irrevocably changes the course of both their lives.

"...she could not- she would not- give up on him until she knew for sure that he was dead. Until then, she would keep looking...because she owed him, because once upon a sweet and terrible time, she'd loved him, and he'd loved her in return."

Griselda has never given up on searching for Holden. She's a shell of the person she once was; forced to live with crippling guilt over being free and knowing that Holden was left behind. She punishes herself with relationships that are empty and abusive. She doesn't believe she deserves to be happy. Not until she finds him and knows for sure if he survived or not.

Her current boyfriend is no exception to this. The man is absolutely vile.

Let me start out by saying that the only reason Never Let You Go(NLYG) got a 3 star from me is because it was just not MY cup of tea.

So, please do not think this will be a negative review involving a lot of criticism of the characters or the plot. In fact, I’m sure most readers will enjoy the story and the characters. I am just not one of them.

NLYG has all the makings of a Lifetime movie. And that’s a good thing. It’s about Holden and Griselda (terrible name but I get the whole Gretel reference) and how they were kidnapped by a mentally disturbed individual and held captive for three years. Like the book blurb states, one of them got away and the other was left behind. This book is about their journey to finding each other and becoming whole again. Interesting right?

The writing is very fluid and descriptive. There are a lot of flashbacks. These provide the reader with all the history. How Holden and Gris met and became friends. How they were each other’s safe place during their years in captivity. How when they were reunited…….well, I’m not going to spoil it for those of you who want to read this book. Trust me when I say that Holden and Gris will feel very much like real people.

Why am I giving NLYG only 3 stars? Now there are very few authors (such as Kristen Ashley) who can hold my interest for more than 300 pages. And this book really did have all the elements necessary for a bestseller BUUUUUT imagine this-a book that is 450 pages in length and the H/h only meet, in present time, at the 25% mark (according to my Kindle). I’m all for building the tension and angst (yes, lots and lots and LOTS of it and some of it seemed contrived) but this was just a bit too much for ME. Still, I like to think that I'm not a quitter.

I was lucky to receive an ARC of this masterpiece which absolutely consumed me! After I finished it I was so overwhelmed. This book gave me all the feels. I can tell with absolute certainty that Never Let You Go is one of the most emotional and gut-wrenching love stories I've ever read. Katy Regnery left a permanent mark on my heart with this book that exceeded all my expectations.

Be warned that this book is not an easy read and it's Katy Regnery's darkest book so far! It contains some very sensitive topics like abduction and abuse. I can assure you that she handled these topics very well, not many authors are able to do that.

The author's writing is very captivating. Her words penetrate your heart and mind and you can't help but feel very connected to the characters and their story.

Griselda Schroeder and Holden Croft were both foster children that were kidnapped at the age of ten by a mentaly ill man. He held them captive on his farm in his cellar until they both tried to escape three years later. Unfortunately only Gris managed to flee leaving Holden behind.

10 years have passed. Griselda is living an unhappy life full of regret. She never stopped thinking about Holden. Now she is living together with her abusive and possesive boyfriend Jonah whom she doesn't love. She tolerates him because she believes that she doesn't deserve to be happy. Griselda is secretly saving money to find Holden and is only living because she needs to know what happend to the boy who made her life bearable when it should have killed her.

Gris spends a weekend with Jonah in West Virginia where she is plagued with a lot of memories. One evening they attend a fist-fight where she unexpectedly meets Holden again.
