Never Never: Part One of Three
159 pages | Goodreads | Free on Amazon | ★★★★☆
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.
I started reading this with no real knowledge about what this is about.
Great relationship between Silas and his brother, who was there for him in so many different moments.
A skittish and vague environment is being created, which makes it interesting and keeps the plot moving since lots of new things are happening to our characters and they see it in a more important light. In this, the reader was only introduced to the environment.
A lot of tension was created towards the end and was at its peak throughout the last few pages. An amazing mystery, which yet has to be solved. I have so many questions to be honest.
The characters were very judgmental and unlikable at times.
The reader only kept getting questions, but no answers at all.
The writing for the different chapters was a bit too similar. Although the reader was able to experience two points of view, they sounded very similar to me personally. Only their feelings make it able to differentiate between them at least a little.

Silas races against time as more truths unravel, while others twist tighter together. And now, the stakes are higher as Silas’ control slips and others begin to point fingers. Charlie is in trouble and he must be the one to bridge the chasm between their past and their present. Because somewhere between I love yous and Never Nevers and Never Agains, a truth they can’t imagine, beckons to be found.
For this one, let’s start of with a short appreciation for the epigraph of this second part.
This book is for all of you who love happy ever afters and forgave me for the ending of part one. It was Tarryn’s fault. ~Colleen Hoover
This book is for everyone who thinks happy ever afters and Diet Pepsi are stupid. ~Tarryn Fisher
I found the second book a lot harder to get into. Usually, I am not the type for forgetting basic facts that you have acquired throughout a first book. It just annoys me to a point where I want to put everything down. It helped that Silas did prepare for a way not to forget everything.
The mystery was building up, but offered at least some answers.
I liked the letters that they wrote to each other. This made for a quicker, easier reading experience.
Built up quite well for the final book, which has my hopes up high.
Too slow paced and just not fast enough for my liking.

Together, Silas Nash and Charlize Wynwood must look deeper into the past to find out who they were and who they want to be. With time ticking down, the couple are in a race to find the answers they need before they lose everything.
Can they regain what they once had? And will it restore who they once were?
Oh no, really? This is the end? Ugh.
There is literally no diversity whatsoever in any of these three books, at least I wasn’t aware of it being that predominant (or existing at all).
After reading very bad reviews for other books by Colleen Hoover, I am not very likely to pick up any book by her in the future. The only advantages I see here are that it’s short and somewhat cheap. A meh read, would not recommend, I guess.
