Never Say Never By Lisa Wingate

Kai Miller, is a young woman who has never really experienced a place called "home". She grew up nowhere but rather everywhere, with a dreamer for a father, who felt fame was more important than anchoring down and raising a family, what Kai calls the "normal" way. However, when fate has Kai cross paths with Donetta Bradford, a native Texan, during a hurricane evacuation Kai's world starts to change drastically and she starts to wonder if life will ever be the same again. Now the real question, after she runs into sexy Kemp Eldridge and things get a bit steamy, does she want her world back to the way it was?

I was really excited about reading Never Say Never when I found out the setting was in Texas, being that I was born and raised in San Antonio, Texas. When I started reading, however, I found the first two chapters rather dull and hard to get through. After I passed them I found the novel picking up speed and I caught myself unable to pull my eyes from the pages. One thing I wasn't excited about was the hurricane scenario as I kept thinking to myself, "I've seen it all on TV already, what more could anyone add to such a mess?" This book brought the realization to my eyes the bonds formed with people during such hard times, not shown in such detail on TV. I can definitely see Never Say Never as a cute rom-com film and I recommend it, with high marks, to all the people who enjoy a good ole hometown story that makes ya feel good.
