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...

    Story
    "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.

    Story
    "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.

    Story
    "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.

    "As much as I didn't want to like it.. I loved it!"

    I just couldn't understand Miriam's thought process, but I have also never experienced that kind of grief. At times I would shut off the book, because what she was doing to her best friend was not right. But I had to know what happened. This book was well written and the narrators were excellent.

    "I just didn't like this book"

    I tried. But I just didn't like this book. I was bored. Took me almost 4 months to finish it. I only finished it because I paid for it

    "Whew! $hit just got real"

    This is a really good read. This story is captivating and forces you to evaluate the ability to forgive but understand consequences from action.

    "First Time Reading A Book by This Author"

    This story developed really well, but the main character Miriam is delusional. I understand her being in pain and I even get how she and Jamal started an affair. After things blow up though, I don't see how she was thinking she and Jamal could be a couple.
