Book Review: Never Far

Title: Never Far

Author: A.A. Dark



I wasn’t a good person. Even amnesia couldn’t erase the fact that deep inside, there was a darkness I couldn’t deny. Flashes of strangers—of blood and torture—heightened a mystery impossible to unravel.

The man I called my best friend landed an axe in my head trying to save himself. He says I’m a murderer. He may be right.

Until memories return, I don’t care. There’s only one person familiar to me. His sister, Lucy. She’s the only thing that matters now. Where I once kept myself at a distance, this new world I’ve awoken to revolves solely around her.

Lucy is mine.
She’s always been mine.
No one is standing in the way of that.

It is believed, the loss of one’s memory can be a fresh start. What they don’t tell you is not all beginnings are derived from good things.

*****WARNING***** This book contains EXTREMELY disturbing situations, explicit sexual content, and very graphic language. This book EXCEEDS the dark genre and has been classified as PITCH BLACK. May contain triggers for some. Read at your own risk!!

My Review

4/5 Stars

Boston and Jeff are good friends. They like to spend their time filming horror movies. Their latest stunt goes wrong though and Boston winds up taking an axe to the head. When he wakes up, the only person he can remember is Jeff’s sister, Lucy. He has a need to own her, possess her, and Lucy starts to fall for him. Until she learns the truth and realizes that Boston’s accident may not have been an accident after all.

So I had to read this one twice to really decide my feelings on it. I absolutely loved our psychopath, Boston. He was wild, unpredictable, and dangerous. Everything needed to really spice up the story.

The other characters I didn’t like nearly as much. I thought Lucy was a bit naïve. She was so trusting with Jeff, when her brother was nearly pleading and begging for her to listen. Speaking of Jeff, I would’ve liked to have seen more of him in the story.

The plot moved along quickly, and there are some steamy moments in the book. There were quite a few times I found myself nearly flying through the pages, excited to see what would happen next. From the incident with Jeff and Boston to everything that happens once Boston has recovered, it’s a wild ride that will keep you guessing. For me, it was guessing to see if Lucy would make it to the end of the story since she was Boston’s entire focus.

Definitely dark and twisted. If you’re looking for a dark romance to sink your teeth into, this fits the bill.

Proud author responsible for Dead by Morning and The Council, fascinated by the dark and macabre. Stephen King is her all time inspiration mixed in with a little bit of Eminem and some faint remnants of the works of Edgar Allen Poe. When she began writing, she started in horror but it somehow drifted into thriller. She loves the 1988 movie Heathers. She was born and raised in Michigan but traveled across the country to where she currently resides in Texas.
