Never Let You Go
A single dad, close proximity, small town romance

Christopher Wright is Emerald Creek’s hot, broody, single dad baker. And my totally off-limits boss. 

The fine print of my baking apprenticeship neglected to mention a few key details. Like how attentive the master baker would be. Or that he’d be really good with his hands, and not just in the bakery. Oh and that part about “room and board”? A Victorian house with hidden passages, and him cooking for me and his daughter every night.

I’m here to secure my inheritance: my late grandmother’s sprawling empire of industrial bakeries. She never loved me, but she was the only family I had. Despite her coldness, inheriting her legacy is my last chance to find a sense of belonging.

But as my relationship with Christopher grows, the truth I’m hiding from him feels heavier.

This single man. His little girl. The small town they live in and the new friends that treat me like family.

All this feels more like home than I’ve ever known.

Until Christopher catches onto the real reasons I’m here.

What advance readers are saying

What a debut novel!

Bella Rivers drew me in with the small town and single dad tropes and kept me in my feels until the very end with found family.

I immediately fell in love with the adorable small town of Emerald Creek and all of its quirky characters. It has that Hallmark-y feel but with some spice.

The humor was great, and Alex and Chris were likable MCs, especially Chris. He was just genuinely a nice guy, even though that could be a flaw for him at times. And Alex with Chris’s daughter, Skye, was both hilarious and absolutely adorable.

Bella Rivers created characters that were human. They had their flaws, but ultimately they just wanted to love and be loved.

Never Let You Go made me hungry with all the bread-baking, but also made my heart feel so full.

A page-turner right from start to finish, this is a beautiful, small-town romance between two credible and likeable characters, one of them the hot single dad of an adorable little girl.

This is going straight onto my list of favourite books of this year. Looking forward to the next book in the series.
