Book Blitz and Giveaway: Can’t Let You Go by Allie Everhart

Book Blurb:

A standalone New Adult romance. Book 3 of The Wheeler Brothers.


I never should’ve kissed her. It happened almost four years ago, the night of our high school graduation. I’ve always wanted to be more than friends with Jen, and after we kissed, I wanted her more than anything. But I can’t have her. I won’t let myself. She needs to get out of here. She needs to start a new life, far away from her old one. So I’ll keep pushing her away, even though it kills me to do so. When she finally leaves, it’ll destroy me, but at least she’ll be happy. And that’s all I care about.


Bryce is my best friend, and has been for as long as I can remember. If it weren’t for him, I’d probably be living on the streets, but instead I’m in college and about to graduate. I’ve been applying for jobs and might end up leaving Chicago, but I don’t want to leave Bryce. I love him, and I know he loves me. I could tell when he kissed me four years ago. But after that night, he refused to be anything more than my friend. Now time is running out. I might be moving away, ending any chance of Bryce and me ever being together. I know he wants to be with me, so why won’t he ask me to stay?

Read an excerpt from the book--



“Ready to eat?” I ask as I unload the food from the sacks.

Bryce comes up behind me and opens the cupboard above my head and takes out two plates. He’s over here enough to know where everything is. He grabs some glasses and sets them on the counter beside me. I yank open the drawer in front of me to grab some forks and back right into Bryce. I didn’t know he was still behind me. I freeze because my ass is now right up against him.

“You okay?” he asks, his arm going around my waist, keeping me held against his body.

“Yeah. Sorry,” I say sounding breathless. “I didn’t realize you were still there.”

Instead of moving, he reaches around me and takes two forks from the drawer. “Anything else we need?”

“Um, no. Just the drinks.” I shut the drawer and turn around to face him.

He still hasn’t moved, and now he’s staring at me with those gorgeous blue eyes of his.

“Did you need something?” I ask.

“I just wanted to say thanks. For letting me come over.”

“What are you talking about?” I let out a laugh. “You know you can come over here anytime.”

“But I shouldn’t.” He looks down. “I shouldn’t just drop in like this.”

Why is he acting this way? It’s like he’s pulling even farther away from me. We always drop in to see each other. We call first, but it’s not like we give each other much notice.

We don’t have to. We’re friends, and friends drop in to see each other. So why is he acting like we shouldn’t be doing that anymore?

Does he have a girlfriend he didn’t tell me about? Is she banning him from seeing me? Or is it something else? Is he trying to end this? End our friendship? God, I hope not.


Jen’s hurt, and confused. I can see it in her face. She doesn’t understand why I said that just now. But she should. She should know it’s time to move on. I shouldn’t be stopping over like this or calling late at night. We shouldn’t even be friends anymore. Our friendship should’ve ended after high school. If it had, she wouldn’t have gone to college here and been stuck dealing with her mom the past four years. I screwed up her life but I’m not going to keep doing it.

And yet I haven’t stepped away from her. She’s still backed against the counter, my body blocking her in. I want to move closer, press myself against her, and lower my mouth over her slighted parted lips. And then kiss her. Kiss her like I’ve wanted to for four freakin’ years.

“We should eat,” I say, forcing myself to snap out of it. She’s not mine. She never will be.
