I’ve spent my life avoiding attachments. I learned early on, from the person who should have loved me most, I only drag others down. So instead, I made it my goal to live in a way that never affected anyone else. I don’t build friendships. I don’t start relationships. I move from place to place, from person to person, never standing still and never putting down roots.

That is, until one day when everything comes crashing down around me and I’m left with the one person who needs me the most. He opens me up and makes me vulnerable. He’s not a secret, but a treasure, and I’ll protect him the only way I know how – even if it makes loving anyone else impossible.

Rating: ☆☆☆☆☆

Endearing! Never Standing Still was a sweet and enjoyable story. Kalli has never been able to count on anyone she loves to stay in her life. As such she thinks that she doesn’t love very easily. Kalli really does love very deeply and hard, she just refuses to admit it anyone and most especially herself. Kalli has built a world that keeps the outside away from her home life, including her friends.

Kalli meets Riot on the set of one of her jobs. Riot is pure sunshine for Kalli. Once Kalli has the ice cracked in her heart and lets Riot in, she really starts to live. At the same time she recognizes that she is broken and just wants to run to keep the pain from coming. I kept waiting for the flaws in Riot. He was the most understanding and sweetest guy. He really was there for Kalli in every way.

I felt caught off guard at the end of the book, tragedy struck and feeling Kalli’s pain and how that pain affected Riot. It brought on a whole slew of tears. Kalli and Riot’s introduction was beautifully written. I can’t wait for the next story.
