Never Apart by Romily Bernard



🌟🌟🌟🌗 out of 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

How many times would you die for love?
What if you had to relive the same five days over and over?
And what if at the end of it, your boyfriend is killed…
And you have to watch. Every time.
You don’t know why you’re stuck in this nightmare.
But you do know that these are the rules you now live by:

Wake Up.




Now, the only way to escape this loop is to attempt something crazy. Something dangerous. Something completely unexpected. This time…you’re not going to run.
Combining heart-pounding romance and a thrilling mystery Never Apart is a stunning story you won’t soon forget.

Wow! My heart started racing as soon as I began reading this book! The book begins with our main character Grace running for her life along with her boyfriend. I was terrified for them and I wasn't sure what was about to happen. They seem so certain that they are about to die at the hand of someone chasing them in the dead of night. 

I thought that it was an interesting that the author chose to have Grace as the only point of view and to have the book go from "now" and "then" during the book. We get to see what Grace's life was like before she began reliving the five days. It helps to give hints and clues as to what is happening to her. Looking back over the course of the book, I can see what the author was doing. I understand a lot of the hints and was able to pick up on more of them when I went back and reread different parts.

I loved Grace! I found her to be so relatable. She was so strong even though she struggled with being comfortable in her own skin.  I could tell that she was trying really hard to be the person that others wanted her to be by trying to be social but that wasn't her. She had so much depth as did other characters but she really spoke to me. It is not often that I read about a character that has social anxiety. Her voice was unique and she was one aspect of the book that I loved.

I was disappointed with the ending of the book. I thought that it was an obvious answer to why Grace kept reliving the five days over and over. I was able to guess it about halfway through the book although I was partially joking when I guessed. I would have liked to have seen something more unique rather than what I felt was a bit of a cop out.


  1. I hate when a book's twist of ending is obvious from the beginning or even the middle. This one sounded good but I wish it wasn't so predictable.

  2. Hmmm. . . I kinda want to read it, but I kinda don't. I don't like super predictable books, but it sounds like you enjoyed it, but the ending. . .I don't know.
