Never Never, a novella series. Book one.

Best friends since they could walk. In love since the age of fourteen.
Complete strangers since this morning.
He'll do anything to remember. She'll do anything to forget.

“Never have I had my mind blown reading a book like I have reading Never Never. It was intense, sweet, completely unpredictable and utterly fascinating. Can’t wait for the next book in this series!” ~Jen, The Book Avenue

“Hoover and Fisher have combined their unique talents to deliver a deliciously twisted tale of deceit, love and friendship that keeps you guessing long after the heart-stopping end.” ~Vilma’s Book Blog

“Twisted, sickly wicked, yet warming with a deep-layered love story. Tarryn and Colleen combine their forces for good. Alone they are talented. Together this epic duo is unstoppable.” ~Pam, The Book Avenue.

"The evil queen and the good fairy of romance have come together, and the results are more than I could have ever asked for." ~Holly's Hot Reads

This book was unlike anything that I anticipated and it obliterated any of my expectations. It was unexpected yet phenomenal.  It’s difficult to describe the unique quality of Never Never. This story mixed elements of suspense, witty humor, and romance. Truthfully, I had no idea what was going on or what was going to happen next, but the writing compels you to keep reading. I wanted and NEEDED to know what would happen next.

Silas and Charlie have always been in each other’s lives. They’ve been best friends for years and they’ve dated for the last four years. Yet, something has changed, they’ve changed, and now they are basically strangers.

I don’t want to give away too much but there are a lot of layers to this book. There was an edgy, intensity, to this story; it was almost scary is in some ways. That aspect steadily drew you me in and kept me turning the pages. The story is told from both Silas and Charlie’s POVs. That element added a layer to the story. As the book progressed you got to know Silas and Charlie better. You start to find out some of their secrets, their lies, and pieces of the truth they desperately seek. This story was a complex and compelling thrill ride. The ending was something you do expect and it leaves you wanting more.

I know this is one of the most anticipated books of the year and I’m glad it exceeded my expectations. I’ll be honest, when I heard Colleen and Tarryn were going to collaborate on a book, I was both excited and nervous. They are both amazing writers but they have two very different writing styles. This book blended their talents perfectly. I truly think this it is a strong start to a new series. I am anxious for the next installment.
