Anyone who has experienced or is privy to an abusive relationship with a narcissistic person, will experience déjà vu while reading Chevy Stevens’ psychological thriller, Never Let You Go. Stevens is right on while telling the story of Lindsay, who escapes an abusive relationship and starts a new life with her teenage daughter while her ex-husband, Andrew, spends time in prison for killing a woman while driving drunk. However, when he is released, Lindsay is devastated because strange things start happening – someone is breaking into her house and searching through her things and she is being followed - she is convinced it is Andrew, who denies being involved and swears he has changed. Lindsay doesn’t want to run again, since she has an established business, and she must rely on her friends to help her get through and avoid the consequences of Andrew’s behavior.
Stevens is an excellent storyteller, and has developed her characters so that they seem real. She has obviously done some research into the psychology of narcissistic personalities, and it is almost scary to experience it through her characters. The story will keep readers on the edge of their seats since there are unexpected twists and turns that escalate the level of suspense.
The dénouement is totally unexpected, and will make readers really think for days after finishing the book. The story is fascinating, the writing is excellent, and the characters are very real. Readers who enjoy a fast-moving thriller with a great story will not want to miss this novel.
