Blog Tour: Never Let You Fall by MIchele G. Miller

Welcome to my stop on the Never Let You Fall Blog Tour 
hosted by My Pathway to Books.

Never Let You FallBlurb:

   Orphaned at 7, with no memory of her past or the family she lost, 17 year old Skye Martin is tired of being alone and afraid. After a hard night of partying, Skye wakes up alone in an unfamiliar hotel. All she can remember is the deep voice of her rescuer and his promise: “I am safe.”

   Xander has been tasked with watching Skye from afar for the past two years, in order to keep her safe from the demons that hunt her. An easy job - until a pair of red glowing eyes reveal themselves to Skye, and Xander, in a moment of weakness, is forced to break his cover to protect her. Never good at trusting people, Skye is inexplicably drawn to Xander and the immediate bond she feels for him. However, Xander is filled with secrets and ties to her past that threaten to thrust Skye into a world she could never imagine existed…

   As she begins to unravel the truth about who Xander is and the details surrounding her family, she discovers that she might just be the key to saving everything... And, most importantly, she finds that there has always been someone by her side who would never let her fall…

Cindy's Review: 
At a Glance/The Cover:
I don't really know what I expected from this book. My feelings changed throughout the whole book. When I first put it into my hands, I wanted this book to be a modern contemporary romance kind of book, since it took place in this era. I was annoyed to discover magic and demons. I like magic and paranormal books but I really don't like them mixing. Like mixing blood with oil. Ummmm. That just sounds disgusting. LOL.

But when Xander and Skye actually got to the magical land, the other dimension called Tycobol? Omfg. I just finished this book like seconds ago. And I can't even remember the name. Seriously. Ugh. And I"m LAZY. So sorry for not searching it up.  I found out I really loved the magic and demons. Because in this land, it was more of a medieval setting. I really love medieval settings, even better than dystopian! The idea of a king and a queen is just so intriguing. I love the royalties and stuff. And the authority they have. And the hot knights. LOL. Where had that come from?

The Characters/Mini Summaries:
Skye - Skye lived as an orphan in the modern era. Her parents died in a horrible fire explosion when she was seven. And she has no memories of it. To make matters worse, she have terrible nightmares of demons chasing her. For ten years, Skye lived in a group home, no one adopting her, feeling lonely. And all. 

That definitely changed when she was out partying one night and got really drunk. That wonderful knight in a shining armor came out. Of course, it didn't happen like that. Skye thought he was crazy telling her about these ummm.....awkward unreal things. But eventually, Skye accepted what Xander and Riorden said. I think Riorden's name is spelled that way. Gee. Yay for my bad memory. Again.

I think Princess Skye sounds really pretty. ;D 

Xander - Okay. So Xander. I really liked how the author described him. We know he has abs, but Michele didn't say, 'his rock hard abs' or 'chiseled chest'. I feel like a pedo when I think that. Michele simply said, in Skye's POV, of course,  'he could model for Calvin Klein underwear. That way, I don't have to think and try to imagine abs. LOL. I'll just think, 'ohhh, so he's good looking.' And end it there. Because I am definitely not a pedo. LOL. As far as I can tell. I mean, I stalk celebrities okay? But that's it! 

If you haven't guessed already, Xander is the knight in the shining armor. He had actually known Skye since they were like kids, like age 4.... but Skye lost her memory, and he can't exactly tell her everything in one heartbeat. 'It's really hard to explain.' I don't think he said the exact same words, but something like that. You get the idea. 

Since you read up there, from the blurb, Skye doesn't trust anyone, I'm glad to tell, Skye does trust Xander. And soon, their trust for each other turned to heart thumping every time they're near each other. Yeah. There's definitely romance. But they are like, so freakin cute. Omg. LOL. I just have to swoon and fangirl over their relationship. I really liked how this is a strictly young adult read, but can still make your fingers tingle and your heart beat. It's so cute. And there's no nasty details in bed. But they have cute ass hugging and kissing in bed. LOL. Nothing happened any farther. Cuz the princess can't loose her virtue.

Riorden - Okay. I think Xander's uncle deserved a part. I don't want to reveal everything, but Riorden I really think that's not how you spell his name but oh well. raised Xander up. Oh yeah. I forgot to mention Xander is a guardian. And so is Riorden. But I think you know already. Riorden played a key part in Xander and even Skye's life. Or at that ten years.

Selene - To make things less complicated. Selene is the sorcerer's daughter and she helped guide Xander and Skye to the Tycalbol land thing. No questions. I'm too lazy to explain.

The Final Thoughts:
Let's just say, this was  a really entertaining medieval read. I just love medieval settings. Guys. 

The ending was a cliffhanger. Thank god, it wasn't a dying one. I meant the one where I feel like dying if I don't find the next book soon. Because if it was, I'll spend my precious next ten hours trying to search up information instead of doing this tour. And that's bad.

I must say, this was one amazing debut novel! :3

KK.

The Rating: 
<3 (1-10): 8.9~9.
Okay. Can't decide. It's leaning really close to that nine. 

Author Bio:
Michele G.  Miller   Having grown up in both the cold, quiet town of Topsham, Maine and the steamy,
southern hospitality of Mobile, Alabama, Michele is something of a enigma.  She is an avid Yankees fan, loves New England, being outdoors and misses snow.  However she thinks southern boys are hotter, Alabama football is the only REAL football out there and sweet tea is the best thing this side of heaven and her children’s laughter!

   Her family, a doting husband and three awesome minions, have planted their roots in the middle of Michele’s two childhood homes in Charlotte, North Carolina.

   Never Let You Fall is Michele’s first novel and she is beyond thrilled to have finally followed up on a dream she has held for over 20 years!  God willing there will be many many more books to follow.
