The Way To Never
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 unfortuna ...more
'..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 t ...more
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 must say this book took a ...more
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 ...more
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. Nathan, on the other hand, i ...more
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.
The Way to Never was one read where I had a lot of doubt going into because it just had a total ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
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 s ...more
I loved the time jump in this book because it let us see how the characters developed without each other and I loved seeing the c ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
"We’re all selfish, Nathan. It’s what you do because of it that makes all difference. And sometimes, being selfless is just as terrible as being selfish."
In thirteen years, Lenora ‘Nora’ Baker changed from a troubled and bitter girl to a successful business woman, author of best-selling novels, and girlfriend of a handsome artist. Damian Bach unofficially proposes in the night of movie premiere which based on one of h ...more
I AM SINCERELY TORN BETWEEN FOUR AND FIVE AND ONE.
MY HEART IS BREAKING. MY HEART IS DYING. MY HEART DID NOT SURVIVE THIS.
I CAN'T. THAT ENDING. I'M DEAD. PRAY FOR MY POOR SOUL BUT I'M PRETTY SURE MY HEART WILL HAUNT YOU ALL FOREVER BECAUSE IF THIS BOOK.

Basically, I just want to say that this book started on a time where e ...more
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) ...more
AND IT'S AMAZING
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, ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
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, ...more
Oh, that's right. BECAUSE THEY'RE SO GOOD. This review is WAY overdue, but it's better than... never. *WINK*
I was given the first book in the Never Trilogy, The Beginning of Never, in exchange for an honest review, so thank you O.E for the chance to read this second one!
At first I was a little shocked with the 13 year difference between the stories, but then I got used to it and realized that maybe it made more sense. I'm still yearning a Nath
