I dove into Never Never blindly. It popped up as a recommended read on my Kindle and when I saw Colleen Hoover on it, I immediately downloaded it and started reading. I didn’t even read the synopsis. I read Slammed by Colleen Hoover blindly too, my BFF told me I MUST read it so without knowing anything about it I started reading. You can do this with Colleen’s books – it’s fun and always rewarding. Never Never is very different than what I was expecting plot wise as I’m not familiar (yet) with Tarryn Fisher’s work, but the collaboration of these two authors is a win!
“We were an us, Charlie. And holy shit, I can see why.” – Silas
Charlie and Silas are seniors in high school, have been friends all their lives, and a couple since they were fourteen. One afternoon everything shifts, and neither of them can remember anything. They don’t know who they are, who their family and friends are, or who they are to each other. Nothing, except for what seems like random things. They’re able to figure out that they are both experiencing the same thing, and bond over their situation while searching for clues about what happened. I really liked seeing each character through the other’s eyes, while at the same time they’re assessing who they are as individuals, and discovering things about themselves.
“I don’t care what our first real kiss was. That’s the one I want to remember.”
I had no idea Never Never was a novella (a generous sized one), and that it’s the first in a series. So I was was a little surprised when I got to the end to find that there’s a huge cliff hanger… so consider yourself warned! I’m looking forward to finding out what happens next in this mysterious and romantic series!
