Pam's Review

review

Never a word, sentence, or paragraph have caused me to think this way! 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.

No story summaries, no quotes, no BS! Plain and simple this is a must read. Each author holds an impressive catalog. Unique writing style and voices blend into a solid story with relatable characters, a creative plot, and one heart stopping ending.

Never Never is the first collaboration for Tarryn and Colleen. The words flowed as one but they still carried the signature Fisher/Hoover styles. I think that’s what makes me love this book most of all. Throughout this collaboration they both held true to their individual writing style. Really I could just write “blah, blah, blah” and it’s safe to say that this book will have no issues selling copies. Whats great is that it’s not just blah!! This book will prove that amazing + amazing = magnificent, mind-blowing, jaw-dropping entertainment!

Jens Review

Genius! Absolute freaking genius. Colleen Hoover and Tarryn Fisher have blown my mind. I’m seriously having trouble writing this review after the intense mind screw I’ve just received. Not once while reading this book did I think, “Read that, heard that before.” I was filled with a panic watching the counter on my Kindle dwindle down as I neared the end. I still had so many questions that I needed answered. I clung to every word written.

“Never stop. Never forget.”

A quote taken from the book, which is how I felt reading this book and after. I Never wanted to stop reading and will Never forget this book. Colleen Hoover has always been a go to for me. This was my first book of Tarryn’s and will not be my last. I’m really crushing hard on these two ladies.

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!

Never stop. Never forget.

INTENSE. If I had to pick one word to describe this book it would be that (and so freaking good too).

Never Never had my attention from the start. The story immediately begins in a way that unsettles and intrigues and the questions started flooding to my brain. Who did it? How did it happen? Why did it happen? Will they ever get through this?

It was one of those mystery type reads that balances that element so well with this genuine characterization that really had my gut twisted. It managed to be and do a lot of things really, really well!

You know those characters that you swear are just going to pop out of the book when you are reading? YEP, they got it here! The characters’ relationship was just as compelling as the mystery and I loved seeing the bits and pieces of their pasts. It was so complicated and messy and I could feel the hurts and the betrayals and the confusion so much — all tied together with this deep love for one another. God, my heart ached throughout this whole book! One of the most raw and memorable characters I have read in a while and it made me weep a little.

This is the first collaboration of two of my most favorite authors and I have to applaud the way Colleen and Tarryn unraveled this mystery, with what I thought was PERFECT execution. The flow and transition was done really well. We get some pieces here and there and things are revealed in a way that just makes you crave to know more and turn the pages faster. I’m not even kidding when I say that I devoured this book for 2 hours and 15 minutes. That’s a whole new record for me! And when it was over, I picked it up one more time to see if there were any hints for the mystery. I JUST NEED THOSE DAMN ANSWERS!

There is no us…

Now I don’t want to give too much away because I think this is a good book to go in somewhat blind to, but it was ABSOFREAKINGLUTELY spellbinding and captivating. It had this compelling and very emotional mystery element to it, but most of all, the strength in this story is the characterization – just top notch! Something that makes me so, so happy because I need characters who live and breathe. They are as real as they can get and they managed to make my heart ache even hours later. It’s all so complicated and confusing and tender and GOD I COULD FEEL IT ALL! I absolutely cannot wait to get my hands on book two and whatever Colleen and Tarryn are up to next!

If you want a book that will mess with your mind (in a good way) and a holy jaw dropping ending, give this book a try. READ THIS BOOK!

I’m gonna make you fall in love with me again.

About Colleen Hoover

Colleen Hoover's love for writing began in 1985 when she was five years old. Her first story was titled "Mystery Bob" and was a huge hit with her mother, who was really good at faking interest.
Colleen continued to write short stories for friends and family until December of 2011, when she decided to write a long story she titled, "Slammed." She self-published SLAMMED to Amazon in January, 2012 and it hit the NYT's bestsellers list in May, 2012. She has since signed with Atria Books, a division of Simon & Schuster, and now has six NYT's bestsellers. Colleen prefers to be called a writer, as the term "author" still terrifies her and makes this feel like a job with expectations. She doesn't work well under pressure and hopes writing will always remain fun and exciting.

You can follow Colleen on Instagram and Twitter @colleenhoover. You can also find her on her blog at www.colleenhoover.com where she holds a daily book-a-day giveaway, or on her very active Facebook page at www.facebook.com/authorcolleenhoover where she loves to give away more free stuff when her husband isn't looking.

Colleen also wants the world to know that writing short biographies in third person is incredibly awkward.
