REVIEWS: Never Say Never Series by C.M. Stunich

REVIEWS: Never Say Never Series by C.M. Stunich

REVIEW I heart the fuck out of these books. Seriously, I read all three back to back over three days.  Usually I’m so busy I barely have time to read the books I’m committed to review for tours, but I made an exception for Never Say Never.  There is so much in this series I like, I can barely type it out. Be prepared for  swearing, smoking, and sex. Everything they’ve told us is bad– yeah, that’s pretty much what Never and Ty do for all three books and I loved every minute of it.   “My name is Ty McCabe and this is my best friend, Never Ross.” Never Ross is lost. She’s clinically depressed and she’s a sex addict.  She uses sex to forget about her past and fill up the dark hole inside her.  The void of blackness.  She knows she’s fucked-up, she doesn’t even try to deny… Read more »
