When falling out of love, refuses to become an option…

Nathan Roque first met Lenora Baker, a beautiful, exasperating, and bitter girl when she was just fifteen years old. He fell so deeply in love with her that he suspected that in his lifetime, nothing else could ever mirror the kind of commitment that she drew out of him. But she is left heartbroken when an unfortun

'..sometimes love is not enough. You need to agree, you need to understand …'

I don't know why I keep reading books. They hurt me anyway.


The Way to Never is the much awaited sequel in The Never series and I'm telling you all, IT DID NOT DISAPPOINT. O.E. Boroni laid out her big guns. She made me swoon, angry, cry but most of all.. fulfilled. I was traumatized by the ending of The Beginning of Never, I honestly did not know if I should be furious or just weep. But one thing I learned from it is

I received an ARC from the publicist in exchange for an honest review. Thank you very much Paula and Ms. Boroni!

After finishing The Beginning of Never, I badly want the sequel. The Way to Never because it sets 13 years after Lenora and Nathan's last encounter. They are now grown-ups and young professionals. It's nice to see them settled in their own careers and they are more matured. Eventually, these two ex-lovers moved but they still have issues that needed closure.

I received an e-arc of this book from the author for an honest review.

A couple of months ago I read The Beginning of Never which is the first book of this trilogy and I loved it! However I couldn't believe it ended the way it did, so naturally I highly anticipated its sequel The Way to Never.
I went into this book blind, not having read the description at all and Oh boy.. Was I shocked/positively surprised. This book takes place 13 years after the events of the first book and I loved it! I hones

NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! That cliffhanger! Why the heck would you do that to me?! :( I need the next book right this second!

The Way to Never is way better than the first book, although the first book contained more story. It was really nice seeing how Nathan and Lenora's lives turned out to be. From being a loner who didn't let anyone in, Lenora now has a pack of friends that seem like her family. From being indecisive about what she wanted for her career, she now has two.

Bejesus, 13 year time period?!! When I first started it, I was like holy camoley, you have got to be kidding me?! Over a decade of no contact, separation?!

And why yes, I am using a lot of “?!” because I was so taken aback. I figred there was going to be a time lapse, but not for this long a period.

Actual Rating: 4.45

This was better than the first book for me. I thought as the characters matured in ages, their development had grown along with them. For example, Nathan. Nathan would always help out then disappear in the first book. However, in this book, he always took care of Lenora but remained present in her life to prove that he is a different man. I thought the plot was good. I was intrigued by Damian. Damian turns o

This book was featured on my post about my best surprises of 2015!

Just finished this novel earlier today and it exceeded my expectations! The Way to Never is a drastic improvement from the first novel, the Beginning of Never. If you read the first and are hesitant to pick up the next one, don't be! Not only is the plot lightning quick and the setting amazing (it's set in NYC!), the characters grew up so much. I really liked Nora this time around. Though she still made some brash decisions that

4 stars because the constant use of cliffhangers is making me suffer

I have to admit that The Way to Never is much better than the first book. This book is set 13 years after Nathan left and it shows a great character development for both Nathan and Lenora. It was nice seeing how their lives turned out to be after such a long time being apart.

Lenora changed a lot. She's not a loner anymore and has a lot of friends now. I didn't find her as annoying as in the first book, however, I didn't like

Thank you to the always lovely author O.E Boroni for giving me an E-ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. Since I finished The beginning of never I have been anticipating this book so much because that ending was wow and I needed to know what was going to happen with Nora and Nathan. O.E has managed to blow it out of the water with this installment though.

I received an ARC from the publisher so thank you! And i honestly want to cry, because ugh. I'm excited that O.E. Boroni is going to be making another book so I can just get my hands on that! I feel that this series was heart wrenching and of course there was NATHAN!!! And everyone loves him, he's like ur favorite boy band. He has moved up from the The Beginning of Never as fictional boyfriend 6 and is now fictional boyfriend ONE!!! This series so far has brought me so much joy, and yes I do nee ...more
This book was way better than the first one.

Nora and Nathan haven't seen eachother in 13 years,and then one day Nathan comes into her life and they have to work together for some reasons. between all this,Nora has a guy in her life named Damian. so it was a sort of love triangle.

I really liked how the story progressed,and thankfully, this time Nathan didn't disappear like he used to in the first book.
Nathan and Nora had feelings for eachother ,and would've confessed it if Damian wasn't in the

I received this book to read and review but this doesn't affect my review.

This book was pretty good. There was a lot of back and forth between Damien and Nathan that could have been left out. I was disappointed that they were so old too because I was thinking it was young adult so that threw me off. I did love her writing style and the plot but just wished there wasn't so much back in forth. It kind of turned me off. And then it started getting REALLY good at the end and then it was over. With

You can read my review for book 1, The Beginning of Never here.

Another huge cliffhanger at the end just like the previous book in this trilogy, i.e. The Beginning of Never. I must say, the author definitely loves cliffhangers but it's really, really painful for the readers. I mean, I don't know how I'm going to survive before the conclusion or the last book comes out. This is really so difficult. Now I should just try writing the review otherwise I w

4.5 stars. Ok. So this book takes place 13 years after the last book ended. I mean, I knew that from the blurb. I expected that. But it still didn't quite prepare me. 13 years have passed since they have seen each other. THIRTEEN!!!!! And yes I'm using shouty capitals!!! And that just made me angry all around. I was mad for these fictional characters that they had to wait this long. After everything they went through in the first book. So unfair. Prepare yourself. Ok, so anyway, even though I kn ...more

(I had received a digital copy of this book on a read-to-review basis).

4.5 stars!

First of all the things I loved about this book was probably the amazing character development! Nora was amazing and Nathan's love for her was melting my heart. Nora was a bit confusing at times when the better choice was obvious to me but probably not to her. Nathan's feelings seemed confusing at first, too.

I liked the professional air to the story and it was great seeing all the characters mature. (view spoiler)

After the ending to the first book in this series, I really had no idea to expect but I knew it was gonna be amazing. O.E did not disappoint.

Nora and Nathan have not seen each other for over a decade since they fell in love as teenagers. Now they're grown, and have made lives for themselves that honestly makes me proud. They're successful, smart, and have developed into even better versions of the teenagers we met in the first book. And even after all this time,

I received a copy from the author, in exchange for an honest review.

The first book ended with such an intense cliffhanger. But before that, the first book revolved around the teen Nora and Nathan and how their young romance ended. As I said, it was pretty dramatic end but really intriguing..

Now, after 10 years, the two are reunited again and their love hasn’t faded all those years. Both of them try to fight it and play it off cool and ok! with the other being there but the feelings are shimmerin

I was given this ARC by the author in return for an honest review.

Nate and Lenora's continued story is a doozy! It is fast paced in all the right ways. It has crazy drama, life altering ailments, a love triangle to end all love triangles, a crazy parental twist, and a cast of a-freaking-mazing characters. It takes a complex boy meets girl story and turns it into a real life daytime soap opera. It has a cliffhanger ending that had me screaming out "NOOOOOOOOO!", so be warned! You are not going to

Have you ever read a book and realized that you would do many unrepeatable things to get the sequel? The Beginning of Never was one of those books for me. The story ended with a cliffhanger that tore my heart into a million different pieces and I really needed a sequel in order to put it back together. And The Way to Never did an amazing job of repairing my heart.

This book is set about 11 years after The Beginning of Never. At first, I was not sold on the idea of seeing the characters as adults,

Holy Cliffhanger! I loved Nora and Nathan in The Beginning of Never by O.E. Boroni and I couldn't wait to see how their story would end. Unfortunately (or fortunately depending on how you look at it) I am going to have to keep waiting. I really liked that this story was set 13 years in the future because I felt like I could relate to them more as adults. I also appreciate the fact that the characters don't deny their feelings for each other. I hate a book that goes on and on about how we can never be together, I'm not going to ...more
