REVIEW:

Never Never Part 2, is the long awaited continuation of Colleen Hoover and Tarryn Fisher's joint masterpiece novella trilogy (the best way I can describe it) and it definitely did not disappoint. It's been forever since I've been able to sit down and read a book cover to cover without moving from my seat, so I was shocked when I hit that last page at 100% as fast as I did.


If you read Part 1, then without a doubt the number one question on your lips was "Where is Charlie?!". Thankfully this book gives you the answers to that question. It literally picks up right where Part 1 left off with Silas. For the sake of keeping things spoiler free I have to keep this review vague. I'll tell you that although you won't get every answer that you're looking for with this installment, you'll definitely get more than Part 1 offered, in my opinion.

In a nutshell, complete mystery surrounds this story. I am absolutely stumped on what could be happening to our hero and heroine. For every question that is answered you will have 10 more to ponder. The writing is impeccable and as I said above you can literally read this book cover to cover in a matter of hours, if that. It's definitely shorter than the first part but I think the pages somehow have more content and glimpses into all the missing pieces.

It's amazing to me how Colleen and Tarryn could create two characters with zero recollection of their lives together but they somehow have the most potent bond. The romantic factor was fantastic, even in the moments that Silas and Charlie were apart. A big portion of their lives is told via letters that they wrote to each other (and if I said I didn't swoon at some of them I'd be lying). The letters paint a better picture as to who Charlie and Silas are as individuals and at least for me made them both more likable (I really wasn't sure I'd care for Charlie at first).

If you're not a fan of cliffhangers, you may want to wait it out for the last installment to release (I've been hearing this summer?). While the wait for each part can be torturous, I think these books are unique and well worth it to check out now. Maybe you're looking for something new and unique or maybe you're looking for a quick and fun in between book to read between full-length novels. Either way Never Never Part 1 and Part 2 are amazing choices! I have no idea where Silas and Charlie's story is going to go but I can feel one hell of a conclusion coming!

COVER REVEAL: Surviving Ice by K.A. Tucker



About SURVIVING ICE:

Ivy Lee, a talented tattoo artist who spent the early part of her twenties on the move, is looking for a place to call home. She thinks she might have finally found it working in her uncle’s tattoo shop in San Francisco. But all that changes when a robbery turns deadly, compelling her to pack up her things yet again.

When they need the best, they call him. That’s why Sebastian Riker is back in California, cleaning up the mess made after a tattoo shop owner with a penchant for blackmail got himself shot. But it’s impossible to get the answers he needs from a dead body, leaving him to look elsewhere. Namely, to the twenty-something-year-old niece who believes this was a random attack. Who needs to keep believing that until Sebastian finds what he’s searching for.

Ivy has one foot out of San Francisco when a chance encounter with a stranger stalls her departure. She’s always been drawn to intense men, so it’s no wonder that she now finds a reason to stay after all, quickly intoxicated by his dark smile, his intimidating strength, and his quiet control.

That is, until Ivy discovers that their encounter was no accident—and that their attraction could be her undoing.

And don’t forget BURYING WATER, BECOMING RAIN and CHASING RIVER, the first three books in this thrilling series…
About BURYING WATER:

The top-selling, beloved indie author of Ten Tiny Breaths returns with a new romance about a young woman who loses her memory—and the man who knows that the only way to protect her is to stay away.

Left for dead in the fields of rural Oregon, a young woman defies all odds and survives—but she awakens with no idea who she is, or what happened to her. Refusing to answer to “Jane Doe” for another day, the woman renames herself “Water” for the tiny, hidden marking on her body—the only clue to her past. Taken in by old Ginny Fitzgerald, a crotchety but kind lady living on a nearby horse farm, Water slowly begins building a new life. But as she attempts to piece together the fleeting slivers of her memory, more questions emerge: Who is the next-door neighbor, quietly toiling under the hood of his Barracuda? Why won’t Ginny let him step foot on her property? And why does Water feel she recognizes him?

Twenty-four-year-old Jesse Welles doesn’t know how long it will be before Water gets her memory back. For her sake, Jesse hopes the answer is never. He knows that she’ll stay so much safer—and happier—that way. And that’s why, as hard as it is, he needs to keep his distance. Because getting too close could flood her with realities better left buried.

The trouble is, water always seems to find its way to the surface.

About BECOMING RAIN:

Luke Boone doesn't know exactly what his uncle Rust is involved in but he wants in on it—the cars, the money, the women. And it looks like he's finally getting his wish. When Rust hands him the managerial keys to the garage, they come with a second set—one that opens up the door to tons of cash and opportunity. Though it's not exactly legal, Luke's never been one to worry about that sort of thing. Especially when it puts him behind the wheel of a Porsche 911 and onto the radar of gorgeous socialite named Rain.

Clara Bertelli is at the top of her game—at only twenty-six years old, she's one of the most successful undercover officers in the Washington, DC, major crime unit, and she's just been handed a case that could catapult her career and expose one of the West coast's most notorious car theft rings. But, in order to do it, she'll need to go deep undercover as Rain Martines. Her target? The twenty-four-year-old nephew of a key player who appears ready to follow in his uncle's footsteps.

As Clara drifts deeper into the luxurious lifestyle of Rain, and further into the arms of her very attractive and charming target, the lines between right and wrong start to blur, making her wonder if she'll be able to leave it all behind. Or if she'll even want to. ​

About CHASING RIVER:

Armed with two years' worth of savings and the need to experience life outside the bubble of her Oregon small town, twenty-five-year old Amber Welles is prepared for anything. Except dying in Dublin. Had it not been for the bravery of a stranger, she might have. But he takes off before she has the chance to offer her gratitude.

Twenty-four-year-old River Delaney is rattled. No one was supposed to get hurt. But then that American tourist showed up. He couldn't let her die, but he also couldn’t risk being identified at the scene—so, he ran. Back to his everyday life of running his family’s pub. Only, everyday life is getting more and more complicated, thanks to his brother, Aengus, and his criminal associations. When the American girl tracks River down, he quickly realizes how much he likes her, how wrong she is for him. And how dangerous it is to have her around. Chasing her off would be the smart move.

Maybe it's because he saved her life, or maybe it's because he's completely different from everything she's left behind, but Amber finds herself chasing after River Delaney. Amber isn’t the kind of girl to chase after anyone.

And River isn't the kind of guy she'd want to catch.
