Can a tattooed, former bad boy leave his past behind? Can he find lasting happiness with the love of his life?
Gorgeous and sexy Chase Gartner hopes to do just that with Kay Stanton. But when Chase’s troubled teen brother, Will, stays on in Harmony Creek, Ohio—-after an unexpected arrival-—Chase and Kay’s bonds of love and commitment are soon tested.
Chase finds himself caught up in secrets—-and revisiting a past he thought he’d left behind—-when Will makes a number of irresponsible decisions. Despite Chase’s attempts to keep his brother out of trouble, Will’s reckless behavior continues, affecting not only Chase and Kay, but other residents in town…one disastrously so.
But it’s the final, potentially deadly decision Will makes when his girlfriend runs into trouble back in Las Vegas that leads Chase to make a fateful decision of his own. A choice that threatens his relationship with Kay.

I STAND BEFORE YOU is an all time favorite for me. I fell in love with Chase & Kay immediately and I can honestly say NEVER DOUBT ME is the perfect follow up to the first book in the Judge Me Not series. Both characters were instantly likable. The flaws that each character had made them more real and made their relationship even stronger. They both had struggles to overcome and they did. Chase and Kay fit perfectly together and you see that play out in both books because they honestly seek redemption in each other.
In NEVER DOUBT ME everything seems to be going well for Chase and Kay. Well that is until they have some unexpected house guests and this begins the tumultuous cycle of secrets and bad decisions. Chase is trying desperately to be the man Kay deserves and needs but with Will in the mix things seem to get more and more complicated for Chase. It’s like his past is there just out of sight taunting him and waiting for him to slip so it can all come crashing down around him. There commitment and entire relationship is tested in inconceivable ways. You will be hooked and you will not want to put this book down until it’s finished.
“Life binds. Death shatters.”
The chemistry between Chase and Kay is amazing. You can see it and feel it throughout this entire novel. It’s indescribable and it is well…it is amazing. Their love is so raw that it makes your heart hurt because you want something so sincere…so real.
“Kay is better than any drug I’ve ever done; she overloads my senses in the best kind of way.”
Overall, This book is definitely a 5 star story. It was written beautifully and the pace is perfect. The characters are very well-developed and Ms. Grey makes you want them as friends. You will seriously think about these characters way after you have finished the book. I don’t think I will ever get enough of Chase and Kay. Waiting for the next installment is going to kill me!!!
