I decided to make only one review for the two books. So here it goes.

Never Never is all about mystery of how a couple woke up without knowing anything about their lives and how they manage to find the answer to their questions. So far, it is the most exciting story I’ve ever read, from thee beginning until the end of book two, which is apparently a cliff-hanger. I love how Colleen and Tarryn made us, the readers, thrilled as we read every chapter of the book. I also love the idea of two P-O-Vs which makes the story more understandable.

The characters did not confuse me that much because the authors used less people in the story, but still managed to give the story awesome twists. The story line is so witty that I honestly will not think of. Yes there are parts that will blow your mind, I mean will make you think deeper but will be enlightened sooner in the story. When it’s Silas’ POV, you can feel his emotions and when it’s Charlie’s, you can still feel hers. Great books indeed!

The romantic parts gave that tingling feeling to me especially in that fantasy-type kiss. But the moment I loved the most? It is Silas and Charlie discovered their tattoos that contains significant meanings.

Because it was left open-ended, I expect it to have another sequel. Hoping that this will give me answers Colleen and Tarryn left in my mind. It is okay if they will do it in a cliff-hanging way, just promise us that there will be more books soon!

I would suggest it to teens and adults who love stories about adventures and mystery.

Gave it 5 out of 5! 🙂


“Never forget that I was your first real kiss. Never forget that you’ll be my last.
And never stop loving me between all of them.
Never stop, Charlie.
Never forget.”

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.

“Where are you, Charlie?

So here’s the process I went through to get mine:
