I Never Dreamed, was so very good!
I've been looking forward to this book since it was announced.
From start to finish it was fantastic!
Good job Ashley! :)

Do you love players with a redeemable soul and a backstory that warrant their aversión to being committed? Do you like a strong female that wants to find love, wants to share her life with that special one, but doesn't have time for a man who can't be tamed? Well then this book is for you!

Haha that sounded like an infomercial.

For realz though Nate and Lyndsey are freaking adorable. One fighting for the chance to be together the other fighting against the romantic reputation tainting them. Alon

I never dreamed by Ashley Hampton

I received this book from the author for an honest review.

Oh Nate!! I loved him in book 1 and was so excited about this book.

Nate was so in love with Hannah but because he chose to deal with their trauma the wrong way, he lost his girl. He never thought he would be able to love

I received a copy of the book from the author for an honest review.

After reading Breeze my heart went out to Nate. He found love and lost it. He closed off his heart and watched his love walk away. Not believing he could ever love again that is until he saw the green eyes of Lynsey.

Lynsey is a Pediatric Orthopedic surgeon who came to this small town to forget her past and move on. She is determined not to be just another notch on Nate’s bed post. Her heart could not handle that.

Nate is driven

Dec 14, 2015 rated it it was amazing I couldn't put Breeze down, which is book 1 in the Southern Rock Lyrics series, and once I finished it, I went right into I Never Dreamed, which is book 2. Same damn issue. So good!!!

For a guy who's had his heart broken and doesn't think he'll ever be able to repair the void, Dr Nate Ramon sure is trying his darndest to not feel anything when it comes to women. Being a psychologist, one would think he would know better that isn't going to happen!!! Too bad he runs into the beautiful an

This is book 2 in the Southern Rock Lyrics Series, and it is Nates story.

In steps Lynsey, a take no crap doctor, who he is smitten with. Both of them have baggage of which they need to rid themselves of before they can become whole.

I really enjoyed this 2nd book in the Southern Rock Lyrics Series.

I wanted Nate to find his happiness since the first book. I was happy to see more of Will & Stacy in this book, and wished we had a little more of Hannah & Finley. It's so sad to see close friends moving away and slowly they are all leaving, but this is how life goes and Ashley does it well.

I liked the small southern town backdrop, you really get a feel for it with Thurston's Juke Joint, the gossip mill that runs
Read book 1 first

I needed to see how Nate found his happiness <3
I highly suggest that you read Breeze before you read this book as it will help you understand what is going on and it will also help you to fall in love with these characters .
Miss Hampton writes strong-willed characters who have every day flaws and live normal lives with heartbreak that you can relate to . There are so many issues that are ignored in today's books that are explored in this series. It is healing for some and g

Book 2 in Ashley Hamptons' Southern Rock Lyrics Series, this is Nate's story. I was excited to read his story and this did not disappoint. Reading about his struggles to move on with his life after the past that he shared within Hannah, who Breeze book 1 is about was very emotional and definitely pulled on my heart strings. This book was great! Loved it. I really enjoyed Lyns she was pretty awesome. Definitely a must read.

Ashley provides another fabulous read!

I am loving the very real characters in this series. Ashley's storyline is fresh. Her imagery is distinct and puts me into the scene as it unfolds. I'm going to purchase and read number three immediately!!!

Beautifully broken Nate! He's totally swoon worthy. This was a heartwarming story of a second chance at love for two people who fit together nicely. Nate has had so much loss in his life but Lynsey helps heal him. This story was touching and hopeful, a great read!

This book was a fast read for me too. I love Lynsey's take no bullshit personality and seeing Nate's softer side. I also enjoyed how this book was a pretty drama free book. Sometimes, that's what we need as a reader. A sweet book. I would recommend this book/series.

Great second book in this series! I loved the story of Nate and Lynsey – just like in Breeze, Ashley gives you a glimpse into their lives and their backstories – and you are so much more invested in the characters that way! Ashley writes such strong women characters and I LOVE that – independent, smart, professional, yet vulnerable in all the right ways. And the male characters are strong, sexy, smart, yet tender and loving to those they love. Nate and Lynsey are another great couple – with real ...more

Amazingly beautiful

Another amazingly beautiful story written by Ashley Hampton. With effortless style she has a way with words that have you fall in love with her characters. We finally get Nates story. You feel his emotions as he finally pushes through what was his past relationship with Hannah. Lynsey is his perfect match in every way. A wonderful story that needs to be one-clicked.

I love Nate and Lynsey!!
At first it was hard reading about Nate since he was still in love with Hannah but as time went on he moved past that and then met Lynsey and their story began. I thought Lynsey was perfect for him and love them both individually and as a couple. I can't wait to see what happens next for them!

I really liked this story of Nate and Lynsey. It was great to see their story and how their relationship developed.

I read lots of different types of books, but sometimes a good old-fashioned sweet and sexy romance is needed after a lot of angsty reads. I Never Dreamed fills that bill in spades. I loved this book from the first page. Nate was one of my favorite characters in Breeze by Ms. Hampton, and I knew there was more to his backstory. The reader finds out exactly what he lost when he lost Hannah to one of his best friends. To cope with his grief, he manwhores around struggling to figure out his future a ...more

So I started this book this morning and I finished it just hours later! I never read that fast if that tells you anything! I have read 2 books by Ashley now and I've been blown away twice! I could not put down either book. Now onto this actual story.

I was happy to get to know Nate a little more. I liked the glimpse of him we got in Breeze. And finally we got his backstory with Hannah. And boy was it a backstory! One that broke my heart but explained so much. It hurt Nate so much that he's kind o

Arc for review

She knows Nate is a playboy, but she also thinks he’s hot! He thinks she’s beautiful and loves her humor! Can he get past his feelings for Hannah and baby Sara? Can she get past what her ex did to her?
These 2 take their relationship slow, they become friends first. When they actually start dating they are met with an issue that could either tear them apart or bring them closer together. And that’s not all they will face, can they survive?
This book was great I could not put it down.

I love so much about this book. Nate is a great friend, but not to women. A serial love em and leave em guy, because he's afraid of investing his heart again. Lindsey is coming out of a bad situation romantically, and doesn't want to be just another notch in Nate's bedpost. I love how these characters develop and I really love how race is dealt with in this book. I like how Ms. Hampton doesn't describe Nate's appearance in breeze, and let's Nate just be a guy you would love to have on your side. ...more

Book 2

Well. If you had not told me, I would never have known Nate was black. I am approximately those rude women's age. I live in a rural town in the South. I seldom run into women like that. But for a book's story it makes good reading.

Story was sweet and had a happily ever after that we all love to read. Fun , rainy day read
