Publisher's Summary

In this emotionally charged and inspiring novel about a love triangle, secrets between best friends threaten to blow up friendships and a marriage - and change lives forever.

When Miriam's fireman husband, Chauncey, dies while rescuing students from a school fire, Miriam feels like her life is over. How is she going to raise her three children all by herself? How will she survive without the love of her life? Luckily, Miriam's sister-friend Emily and Emily's husband, Jamal, are there to comfort her. Jamal and Chauncey grew up together and were best friends; Jamal and Emily know they will do all they can to support Miriam through her grief. Jamal steps in and helps Miriam with the funeral arrangements and with her children, plus he gives her hope that she has a future. But all the time that they spend together - grieving, sharing, and reminiscing - brings the two closer in ways they never planned...

    "Very Entertaining"

    The book was good. You find yourself really trying to put yourself in Miriam's shoes and there were many times I couldn't understand her decision, and found myself yelling at the story as Miriam puts herself in inappropriate situations. However, the author did a good job of character development. We get to see why a woman like Miriam would make the decisions she made. This made the story interesting, and compelling.

    "Amazing and Emotional"

    I really enjoyed this duel narration. I actually felt connected more to Miriam for the first half of the book and then more to Emily as the story moved forward. Emily seemed a bit like a push over at first, but I really grew to like her and respect her strength as the narrative unfolded. Even my boyfriend got caught up in the story - I was playing it on the stereo while fixing dinner one night.... This was a great listen with really noteworthy performances by both narrators. I got teary-eyed at times! The characterization of the six year old, Latonya!? And both women did a great job with the male voices and other characters. Powerful.

    Story
    "Perfect title, but I would say NEVER"

    This very well written story helps you explore the old cliche’, Never say Never. It’s about friendships, that bud from college and families develop and the entire families become so close it is similar to one big happy family. Then life steps lines get crossed, feelings get hurt and friendships get tested.

    Great story, I thoroughly enjoyed it and would refer it to fellow readers with enthusiasm.

    I'm an Audible junkie. I love a good story. I read all types of books. I have no genre that I won't check out.

    "Never or maybe"

    This story is assume. The characters were so well described I could actually see them in my minds eye. The story flowed from begging to end. At one point you judged Miriam as a shameless
    Backstabbing bitch then the lines blurred. I raged with M and agreed dump the weak a$$ son*%% and slap the hell of demon bestie Miriam. But the story goes on and now I 'm wondering what part love,loss and depression level grief played. What would I do?
    This is a excellent book worth checking out.

    Story
    "Rather Read"
    If you could sum up Never Say Never in three words, what would they be?

    Devlish, warm,, never


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story really catches you off guard the way it builds you to the plot.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Amanda Cobb and Karen Pittman ?

    I've listened to a book narrated by Karen Pittman. She is not one whose work I would run and look for.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    The story is great but this is something I rather have read than listen to. Several times I had to play a chapter over b\c I got side track. My interest was not kept due to narration.

    "An Unexpected Good Read"

    I loved it. Most Memorable Scene was when Emily jumped out of the car after learning her husband & best friend had an affair. She ran to get away from the 2 people who she thought loved her the most. #NeverSayNever
