Never Enough…

I promised that when I got my back cover copy for Adrian’s book, NEVER ENOUGH, I’d post it so the questions about who Adrian’s woman was would be solved.


Gillian Forrester spent most of her life running from who and what she came from. Until Miles came along. From the moment she held the tiny newborn her older sister didn’t want, Gillian stopped running and began to build a life for herself and her adopted son. Now, thirteen years later, as Gillian’s sister lay dying, she reveals the father’s identity and makes Gillian promise to find him.

Adrian Brown is the epitome of the successful rock star. He’s seen and done it all, with few regrets. It takes a lot to shock him but the bombshell that he has a thirteen-year-old son rocks his world. And Adrian is even more surprised when the buttoned-up, elegant woman who’s raising Miles snags his erotic and romantic attention.

The last thing Gillian expected was to find herself getting hot and heavy with a person like Adrian. But as much as she wants to open up and give herself fully to this amazing man, she’s afraid the secrets of her past and Adrian’s problems with trusting people may keep them apart for good. If love isn’t enough can they find the trust they need?

In truth, Adrian just doesn’t like Raven. No ulterior motives, LOL, he just doesn’t like her. I’d never planned to put them together though I do love Raven and she’s got her own, very complicated and at times brutal story. I do plan to revisit her as a character at some point in the future, though, because she has something to say and I want her to have her own version of an HEA…

I’m writing Gillian now. I love her and I hope you all will too!

    I have to admit I was pulling for Raven, but I’m always up for a new character…and seriously Adrian is so hot…so this is due out next week, right?

    Yay! I can’t wait to read this…

    I figure Raven has lots to offer in terms of her own story — but honestly, am happy she’s not for Adrian because he seemed to dislike her too much.

    Not fair we have to wait months to read this.

    Really. NOT. FAIR. Grrrr!!!!

    My first impression was ‘OMG Andrian has a kid?’ Then I was all he’s gonna be a father every kid wants, look how great he is with Rennie. And now just can’t wait for the book to come out. It’s gonna be great!

    WOW, can’t wait for Adrian’s book.
    I’m glad Raven doesn’t end up with Adrian and she will get her own story,while she rubs me the wrong way I know she’s deeper than shallow . Let the countdown begin for never enough…..can’t wait til you tease us with the cover πŸ˜‰

    So excited this book is gonna be awesome! Happy to see Adrian and Raven weren’t coupled cuz it’s true there is so much story behind her character alone. I’m looking forward to the cover art and teasers you post before the book comes out cuz I know when it finally does it’s always worth the wait.

    Wow can’t wait. Sounds like it will be an awesome story. And just so I say my peace I don’t hate Raven I just didn’t see her w/ Adrian. Which of course is my two cents. I think she has some good qualities but I think she belongs w/ someone else.

    I love the back cover info. I have really been looking forward to Adrian’s story and I am glad his leading lady is someone new to the mix. Can’t wait!

    I was so afraid Raven and Adrian would hook up in NEVER ENOUGH despite the fact that they have a mutual dislike of each other. And this is one of my favorite tropes, so I’m doubly excited to read about Mr. Brown.

    EEEEEEEEEEEeeeeeeeee [also good :X I never thought Adrian and Raven would work. Never. Ever. EVER.] Won’t mind her getting her happily ever after in a novella or vignette or something.
    Yay Gillian! And O_O Adrian as a teenager’s daddy. My goodness.

    I never really wanted Raven and Adrian together. I have been preparing myself for that possibility. I know you could have pulled it off. Any couple that had been enemies that long would have had wicked chemistry. Sooo glad he won’t be with her though. After Inside Out I really want to see his HEA. Glad he will finally have a family of his own.

    Great! Really glad it is not going to be Raven. I love Raven’s personality and would love to read her story, but she just doesn’t seem to be the charming & generous of heart sort that the Browns seem to prefer. πŸ™‚

    Looking forward to this book.

    I’m not going to lie I am disappointed. I thought they would have been good together for so many reasons. But I look forward to Adrian’s HEA and I know Raven has a great story in there somewhere. I think she’s one of the most interesting women in this series. πŸ™‚

    πŸ˜€ Thank you!!!
    This sounds fantastic I am so glad that the girl is not Raven I actually jumped. I wouldn’t mind a story devoted to Raven but I am so excited to see Adrian get a woman of his own not his brother left overs.
    Thank you Lauren!!!!!!

    Oh wheeee, I can’t wait for this one. Just finished Inside Out and it’s so fantastic!!!
    I really was thinking that the next book would be about Adrian and Raven but I am very very happy to hear you’re having other plans for her. Yay, that means one more book of the Brown siblings for ussss…..
    Oh man, so long till the next book is getting released … But the waiting is definitely worth, especially after that sensual and amazing story of Andrew and Ella. Thank you so much Lauren, I so much love love love your books πŸ™‚

    Kind of late in getting the news, but thank
    you for keeping your promise and posting
    the back cover. I will admit I am just a tiny
    bit disappointed that it is not Raven. I thought if someone could redeem her, it would have been you. Excited to meet
    Gillian though. Can’t wait for Sept.!!

    I just finished Inside Out! Any chance you can finish Never Enough a little sooner? Like tomorrow maybe? I love Adrian. Always have and always will. Thank you for writing this wonderful series. BTW, so glad it isn’t the Raven and Adrian suddenly like each other story. I am really interested to see how you work out Raven’s story though.

    OOOOOOOOooooooooooooo!!!!!! :mrgreen:

    You know, when I first saw Adrian and Raven together, I wondered, but in subsequent books? Particularly after what went down with Brody? Not so much. I could see them existing in a state of armed truce, but never in lurrrrrrrv. So I’m glad you’re not going there.

    This sounds awesome, and I can’t wait!
