“NEVER NEVER is full of anticipation and full of intrigue.” ~ Under the Covers

To say I’m shocked is an understatement.  NEVER NEVER was not what I was expecting in so many levels.  But at the same time, this is probably the work by Colleen Hoover I’ve enjoyed the most in a long long time.  So I’m pleasantly surprised.  And I’ve never read Tarryn Fisher so I can’t say exactly on that.

How to review this without giving you spoilers!  That is almost impossible.  I think it’s best for you to go in blind to enjoy it.  So let me just say that I actually really liked Silas, the hero.  I am sort of liking him more because he seems all good, and the heroine, Charlie, well she has her moments.  Sometimes I like her, sometimes she’s a bitch.  However, in the short span of this story I didn’t really “connect” with them past the point that their story was entertaining.

I also loved the fact that this was like giving both of them a fresh new personality makeover.  What would you do if you could start tomorrow a completely different person?  What choices would you make then?  Would you regret your past ones?  <— That is my favorite part of this book.  I want to explore more of that.  But for that we need answers.

NEVER NEVER is full of anticipation and full of intrigue.  There are many things being slowly uncovered and it was fun to read this as a mystery, trying to find all the clues and putting together the puzzle pieces.  But when I say all, that’s not really the case.  We don’t get all the puzzle pieces.

The anticipation was starting to get to me because this book is pretty short (a novella really) and as that percentage read was getting higher and there were no answers in sight, I was suspecting that there would be NO ANSWERS.  So let me warn you now.  This book ends in a huge cliffhanger!!  A frustrating end.  And it makes me so mad because there is no information yet on when the next one will be out.  Or even a title!  Now I feel like I’m stuck in limbo with all my questions hanging in the air until Ms. Hoover and Ms. Fisher hurry up and put out the next part.

If you enjoy a good mystery read (mind you with a very young adult feel to it, these kids are in high school) then this is for you.  This may not be for you right now if you don’t like not having answers to your questions.  Then you may want to wait until the next part at least is out.  Because NEVER NEVER answers nothing but entertains.

Favorite Quotes:

“Never stop.  Never forget.”

Her eyes are like two open books and I suddenly want to devour every page.

“We’re branded.  You and me.”

About Tarryn Fisher

I would like to write a novel that every, single person loves, but not even J.K. Rowling could do that. Instead, I try to write stories that pull on people's emotions. I believe that sadness is the most powerful emotion, and swirled with regret the two become a dominating force. I love villains. Three of my favorites are Mother Gothel, Gaston and the Evil Queen who all suffered from a pretty wicked case of vanity (like me). I like to make these personality types the center of my stories.
I love rain, Coke, Starbucks and sarcasm. I hate bad adjectives and the word "smolder". If you read my book-I love you. If you hate my book-I still love you, but please don't be mean to me; I'm half badass, half cry baby.

I’m a 30 something sun lover living in the Big Apple (read New York).I’m a book and coffee addict and lover of all things elephants.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!

I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
