“Never forget that I was your first real kiss. Never forget that you’ll be my last.
And never stop loving me between all of them.
Never stop, Charlie.
Silas races against time as more truths unravel, while others twist tighter together. And now, the stakes are higher as Silas’ control slips and others begin to point fingers. Charlie is in trouble and he must be the one to bridge the chasm between their past and their present. Because somewhere between I love yous and Never Nevers and Never Agains, a truth they can't imagine, beckons to be found.
“Where are you, Charlie?”
Completely out of the blue, Silas Nash wakes up in his car, and find that all his memory has escaped him. he has no idea who he is or what he is doing. However, upon glancing into the car’s glove department, he finds hastily handwritten notes explaining that he and a certain Charlie Wynwood are under some kind of spell, leading them to a total loss of memory every 48 hours, so the two of them captured all they could find in those notes.
But the notes also say that Charlie went missing, and there is no telling where she could be. Charlie and Silas probably broke up because of a quarrel between their families, sending Charlie’s father to jail. Yet Silas is determined to look for this person he doesn’t know, but feels intrinsically connected to. And as the story unfolds, it turns out that there might be more to their family quarrel than the two of them thought.
“So what’s the deal with us? Are we like… in love and shit?”
I laugh out loud for the first time since yesterday morning. “Yeah,” I say, still laughing. “Apparently I’ve been in love and shit with you for eighteen years now.”
What I loved about this book:
- Colleen Hoover and Tarryn Fisher write a book together. Pure awesomeness.
- Super suspenseful and unusual storyline
- Interesting characters
What I felt needed improvement:
- I needed to re-read Part One to really get back into the story
- The story is fairly short
- Huge cliffhanger (release part for sequel unknown!)
Yay! Never Never: Part Two finally released and it’s a masterpiece born from the collaboration of two very talented authors: Colleen Hoover and Tarryn Fisher. Please note that Never Never: Part Two is the sequel to Never Never, and you will need to have read Never Never prior to launching into its sequel.
Oh and make sure you read it not too long ago, because I was completely lost when I picked up the sequel a few months after having read the first part. I had forgotten so many details (and it was a disturbing/confusing read as it is), that I had to actually re-read the last third of Part One to make sure I remembered what the deal was.
It is very rare for me to give sequels a higher rating than original books, but in this case, the authors really nailed the sequel. Everything, from pace to storyline, was just perfect. Well, that is if you forget about the massive cliffhanger in the end of the book. If you were looking fr a lighthearted, sexy read – you won’t find this here. But what you will likely find is angst ans suspense, and a whole lot of emotions.
I absolutely loved how heartfelt the read was compared to Part 1: I loved how the characters had no idea who they were, but still felt a sense of belonging to each other even though life apparently (and from what they found out) brutally tore them apart.
“I’ve enclosed some pictures I want you to go through. Hopefully they’ll remind you of what we could have again someday. A love that wasn’t dictated by our parents or defined by our family status. A love we couldn’t stop if we tried. A love that got us through some of the hardest moment of our lives.”
While in book 1, I really disliked Silas, and was completely on team Charlie’s side, this book was completely different. Although the writing was alternating their points of view, Never Never: Part 2 was much more focused on Silas, and totally put him in a different light… and kind of cast a bad light on Charlie. That “other point of view” was highly interesting, and I really wonder what Part Three (the last installment in the series) will bring the couple.
“I would give anything to have that memory back – to see what it was like between us when we loved each other enough to believe it was forever.”
All in all, I’m definitely recommending this read and will be looking forward to Part Three.
