Tasting Never, a New Adult Novel Recommended for Ages 18 and Up
"Never Ross wants to be loved.
It's that simple, but it's not that easy."
Never is a girl with a broken soul who doesn't date nice guys and can't seem to go to bed at night without crying herself to sleep. She doesn't need any complications in her life, especially not when they're attached to a man that could be her emotional twin.
Ty McCabe can't stand Never the first time he meets her. He's aware that the feeling's mutual and the two don't think they'll ever see each other again, but when fate takes a hand and puts them both in the wrong place at the wrong time, Ty and Never form a tentative friendship that opens the door on their dark sides and shows them what it's like to live in the light.
"Sometimes, the only way to go forward, is to take a few, careful steps back."
"Tell me, Never, do you still love him?"
Never Ross and Ty McCabe have come a long way – but they can't stop now. Their pasts are still there, ready to sweep over and consume them if they don't confront them. A visit to Never's family seems like the first logical step, but will it make things better or worse? And what about Noah Scott? Ty is Never's tortured other half, but can he also be the healing balm that she so desperately needs? With McCabe's past still a virtual unknown, Never is going to have to make more than one decision capable of breaking both their hearts.
"Ty has changed; I have changed, and things are not always what they seem."
Never's past might be under control, but Ty's is just starting to unravel. After receiving a phone call from his broken past, tensions run high between Never and Ty, especially with Never deciding to do something she's never done and keep her pregnancy a secret.
While visiting a skeleton in his dark, dark closet, Ty is threatened by all that he once was and all that he thought he'd overcome. With his pain about to consume him, Never is the only one who stands between Ty and relapse, who can help him control his emotions and find peace, but is she up to it? After all, with two tortured souls desperate for a healing touch, are they more of a hindrance to one another than a help?
Love, marriage, and a baby. Three things that Ty and Never saw coming. It's judgment time for both of them, time to see if the light really can overcome the dark. Here's to hoping.
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 it. She just doesn’t see any way out of it. So fuck it, she’s gonna do things her way and consequences be damned.
“I am in love. Big time. I’ve fallen so hard for Ty that if I don’t get away now, I’ll never be able to get back up.”
Ty McCabe has a black soul of his own, he just as broken, just as addicted to sex, and just as unhappy with his past as Never is.
So starts one of the most beautiful and messed up relationships in fiction. Man, this couple is so real, you will forget you’re reading a book. Everything about them is honest.
Book one is all about trust. Can Never trust Ty? Can Ty trust Never? Can they admit they like each other? Can they get on the road to recovery together?
It’s a struggle because they both have reasons, very good reasons, to doubt the other. But Ty is determined to be there for Never as they both decide to take a very frightening first step towards picking up the broken pieces.
Book two is all about Never coming to terms with her past and in order to do that she needs to go back home and face her demons. Her mother and sisters. Ty is there for her, shit, he’s there for all of her family, even her mother at one point. Ty is a bad boy hero to the nth degree. He’ll kick someone’s ass if he has to, but he’ll also lie down in the grass with Never’s little sister and talk shit out with her. He’s hot and sexy, he’s some kind of bad boy God according to Never, yet he’s the guy you can take home to your family—knowing that he’ll always have your back and always treat you right.
“Help me through this,” I whisper to Ty.
“You’ve got me for as long as you need me.”
Ty makes me sigh, that’s how perfect he is.
But every bad boy comes with a dark past and in book three we get to see it firsthand. Now it’s Never’s turn to let Ty lean on her even though through it all she’s hiding a secret that will change their lives forever.
This series has it all—steamy sex, swearing, jokes and funny moments, touching moments, scenes that will make you cry your eyes out, scenes that will make you angry that people can be so cruel, and a satisfying ending to each one. I promise, Ty McCabe will make you clutch your chest and say “I heart the fuck out of you,” C.M. Stunich.
“And fuck, Nev, I have just found my reason to live. I have tasted you, and your essence is so much a part of me that if you leave, I will find you, and I will do whatever it takes to keep you. I’m not trying to sound like some creepy fuck, some stalker, or what the fuck ever, but I just know that you and I are meant to be together, alright?”
Five stars for all three books. If you like edgy new adult, pick these books up. You won’t regret it.
