I was a thief of men…a whore.

Not the conventional type that got paid for sex. I was the girl you talked about in your sad inner circle. The girl you shielded your boyfriend from as you cleverly covered him with your body when I came near.

I was a threat to you.

Keeping him safe in your grasp was smart.

One incredible week was all it took to forever change me.

I was NEVER going to be you … until I met HIM.

Explicit Sex, Language, for MATURE AUDIENCES ONLY

Sometimes you going into a book thinking you know exactly how it’s going to go but then it somehow surprises you. Never Me was that type of book for me.  It was a love story that built up slowly and before I knew it, it sucked me in. I so loved Nadine and Spencer and I even teared up at one point.

Nadine is young, beautiful, smart, and a self-proclaimed whore. She doesn’t do relationships. She doesn’t have men peruse her, she “invites” them to her and she uses them for one night and then she’s done. She only has her dad and her best friend Rory in her life and she doesn’t keep any friends. She’s happy with her life as it is and never really wanted more.

When her and Rory, decide to take a road trip to Florida, they meet a group of friends who are also traveling and they all quickly become close. The group decides to travel together for the rest of their trip. One of the people she meets is Spencer, and from the moment they meet there is a spark between them. I loved Spencer. He was sexy, fun, and made her laugh. Spencer had his own issues and hurt both him and Nadine were like in a many ways.

The longer she spends with Spencer and his friends she begins to grow closer to them. For the first time she feels she belongs. The more time she spends with Spencer, Nadine begins to question herself and her motives. He wants her and she wants him but Spencer wants it to be more than just sex. I loved the sexual tension between them.  They both challenged each other and pushed each other buttons. No matter how much she wants to deny her feelings they were there.

I knew they were both falling for each other but there was a certain scene where I literally felt it. I wanted them together but their time together was short. I didn’t know if Nadine could really change, would they go their separate ways, or would they try to stay together? I loved this story, it had a bit of a slow start but it was really drew me in. I loved the characters and I could see they were beginning to grow and change.  This was great coming on age story and Kate wrote it beautifully. Though I didn’t expect this ending I thoroughly enjoyed it.
