Twenty-one year old Grayson Alexander finally breaks away from an abusive relationship and finds herself free for the first time in three years.

Her attraction to the sexy man in uniform quickly turns into an unhealthy relationship. They both try to resist the pull, but neither can stay away. When tragedy strikes, Grayson realizes it's now or never—walk away or make it work.

I was invited to join up for the blog tour for Now or Never and with me going through a New Adult kick I joined myself up but it wasn't as good as what I thought it would be.
I feel that the book cover is a bit misleading to what the story is about but apart from that I really like the way that it is simple especially the simplicity of the colours they really work well together.
When I first started this book I thought it was really good and very interesting even if the subject matter isn't something I would normally like to read about, however, I felt like that part of the story was a bit glossed over and nothing much after that happened that I would have expected and I definitely wouldn't expect her to jump around to different men it just didn't very realistic. Even though I thought I didn't like it I found myself drawn into the story and I was always wondering what was going to happen next. The romance side of the story was very unbelievable and at times I didn't want the two main characters together, there was other guys that seemed nicer than him who I thought she should be with. There was some sweet and tender moments but these where far and few between. With the ending I'm not a 100% sure with but it did seem like a realistic ending which was the only realistic thing that happened.
The main characters I wasn't overly keen on. Grayson at first I thought was such a strong person especially since she had gone through what she did but the further I got into the book the more annoying she got, I could understand her loosing her self confidence but her having one night stands it just wouldn't happen. Derrick at times was a sweet character but for the most time her didn't seem that nice and nothing he said was believable to me or Grayson. There was other characters that was annoying but there was a few nice ones and I just wished they had a bigger part in the story.
Overall it wasn't the best book but it wasn't the worse as it was addictive it just could have done with being more believable and then it would have been a really interesting book.
