“Never Ross wants to be loved. It's that simple, but it's not that easy.”

Never is a girl with a broken soul who doesn't date nice guys and can't seem to go to bed at night without crying herself to sleep. She doesn't need any complications in her life, especially not when they're attached to a man that could be her emotional twin.

Ty McCabe can't stand Never the first time he meets her. He's aware that the feeling's mutual and the two don't think they'll ever see each other again, but when fate takes a hand and puts them both in the wrong place at the wrong time, Ty and Never form a tentative friendship that opens the door on their dark sides and shows them what it's like to live in the light. Sometimes, the only way to go forward, is to take a few, careful steps back.


Ty's hot mouth is on my neck, and I find myself taking short, sharp, little breaths as I press my shaking hands to his chest. If I sleep with him again, I'll be making the biggest mistake of my life. He's the first real friend I've ever had, and I don't want to cheapen the feelings that are simmering between us. We made that mistake once before, and we survived. We've been through a lot since then, and I know that if I lose him now, I will never be whole again. Ty is my other half, lover or no, and just being around him is enough for me.
“Ty,” I say, trying my best to sound stern. Instead, my voice comes out like a butterfly, flutters against Ty's hair and swirls it gently against my lips. I moan and find that my fingers are now curled in the fabric of his T-shirt.
“Never,” he says back to me, the word like fire against my skin. In those two syllables, I hear how he feels about me. He thinks he's in love. Ty McCabe thinks he's in love with me. He doesn't say it aloud, but I can tell. Sex isn't the best way for me to show my feelings; I've abused it for far too long that it has somehow lost some of its meaning. I try to tell Ty this, but I can't speak with his lips on my throat and his hand sliding across the nape of my neck.
I run my own hands down his chest and put them beneath his shirt, on the hard plane of his belly. His muscles contract as I press my fingers into them, touching, feeling, absorbing the man, the complication, that is Ty McCabe. All the while, my mind is racing in circles trying to talk me out of this.
“Kiss me,” Ty says and it's not a question, it's a request, albeit a gentle one. His voice is softer than I've ever heard it. His words are naked, stripped of all the bullshit that's happened to him, all of the horrible things that mirror my own life. Ty and I are like twins, like two halves of the same whole. They say that opposites attract, but Ty and I are very much the same and the attraction between us burns brighter than the sun. “Kiss me,” he says again and I do.

Jenn's Review:

Sigh, I wasn't expecting a book with two people so tortured.  Never and Ty use sex as a weapon, as therapy, as a release. Ty convinces Never to get help and this book is about them struggling to deal with their personal issues and the fear of relationships, real ones and love.

Personally, I was at the point once in my life and I understand completely! I didn't have a friend to pull me out, I just met one guy who wouldn't let go. This book is heart wrenching, honest, and a powerful read. I highly recommend everyone read this wonderful book.

Sheri's Review:

This is one of those books that sticks with you for days, weeks and even months afterwards.  It sticks in your head, and just replays over and over again.  Ty and Never are broken, they fight their way through each day with whatever they have at their disposal.  Most days they use sex as their weapon of choice.  One day they happen upon each other, dislike turns into grudging respect, which turns into soul mates. How do two broken people make it work, how do they not destroy each other. I thought reading this it was going to be impossible, but it works. They hold each other up, they push each other to be better.

Their stories will tear your heart out, and leave it sputtering on the floor.  Your eyes will tear up, and your throat will get that lump.  You will feel like you have run a marathon in their shoes. 

Their love will set them, and us the reader free though!

They have such a connection that you can’t help but wonder why they fight it at times.  We go through the whole story gathering bits and pieces of their lives before they met, but what we think is never close to what really happened.

CM Stunich wrote a book of survival, and love and learning to let others help.   She wrote a story for anyone who is broken can understand and rejoice in. 

Book two is out now, and book three is coming soon.  I strongly urge to pick these books up….you won’t be disappointed!!

We don't have a rating high enough for this amazing book!!!

New Release:

“I'm dying to be beautiful.”

My story isn't unique. You've heard it before. I'm just a girl who doesn't eat as much as she should. See, I have goals, big ones, and nobody is going to stop me, not even a boy named Emmett. He has good intentions and he's hot as hell, but he doesn't understand what it's like to want something so bad that you'll do anything for it. I'm going to become a model, even if it kills me. Dream big or go home, that's what they always say, right?

C.M. Stunich was raised under a cover of fog in the area known simply as Eureka, CA. A mysterious place, this strange, arboreal land nursed Caitlin's (yes, that's her name!) desire to write strange fiction novels about wicked monsters, magical trains, and Nemean Lions (Google it!). She currently enjoys drag queens, having too many cats, and tribal bellydance.

Always a fan of the indie scene and 'sticking it to the man,' Ms. Stunich decided to take the road less traveled and forgo the traditional publishing route. You can be assured though that she received several rejections as to ensure her proper place in the world of writers before taking up a friend's offer to start a publishing company. Sarian Royal was born, and Ms. Stunich's books slowly transformed from mere baking chocolate to full blown tortes with hand sculpted fondant flowers.

C.M. is a writer obsessed with delivering the very best and scours her mind on a regular basis to select the most unusual stories for the outside world.

Ms. Stunich can be reached via e-mail or by post and loves to hear from her readers. Ms. Stunich also wrote this biography and has no idea why she decided to refer to herself in the third person.

Happy reading and carpe diem!
