Falling for the enemy has never been so deliciously complicated in this standalone romance where a sexy single dad meets his unexpected match! Get ready for all the feels!

Never have I ever been so infuriated by a man I wanted to kiss.

They say opposites attract, but I beg to differ. Combust is more like it. Because every single time I talk to Zach Nolan, I se

This is second in a series, though it isn't marked anywhere I can find. It's clearly a follow-on from Satisfaction Guaranteed, though there's not a lot of carry-over. Well, okay, there's some because Sloane is Piper's bestie and they talk a bit. But you can definitely read this one first if you like. And I kind of did since I dnf'd the other book so hard I was lucky to twig to them being related at all.

It's just as well I didn't know this was in the same series as the first book because I just couldn'

This stands up there as one of my favorite books!! It is a beautiful romantic comedy that makes my heart glow.

Two characters could not be more mismatched when it comes to love. She is a wedding planner and believes in true love that lasts forever. He is a divorce attorney.

When the story begins our heroine has just successfully pulled off the perfect wedding. She even stepped in as a bridesmaid when one got sick. Since she is so average every color looks good on her and she can easily

This was fun! I have had a lot of luck with Lauren Blakely's writing in the past so it was a pretty easy decision to give this book a try especially after I realized that it was a enemies to lovers romance. I thought that this was a really solid story from beginning to end. I really enjoyed the time that I spent listening to this sexy and romantic story.

Spicy, addictive, and intriguing!

Never Have I Ever is a hilarious, alluring, enemies-to-more romance that introduces us to the sweet, sassy, charming Piper who spends her days making brides happy and fairy tale weddings come true, and the intelligent, sharp, confident, divorce lawyer Zach who after losing the first love of his life is content to fill his days battling for his clients and spending time with his children.

The writing is titillating and fun. The characters ar

Never Have I Ever is a refreshing take on a divorce attorney and wedding planner trope. I was completely prepared to not love Zach’s character, with him being a divorce attorney. But, I was surprised to find his reasons for being a divorce attorney were inspirational and different and a welcome change from the usual anti-love divorce attorney character. Zach was a great character; a single father of two young kids, trying to navigate all the changes in his life. As for Piper, there is literally ...more

5 "Just right! Never have I ever." Stars!

I just loved this story. Zack is down right swooney. He's a dirty talking protective sweetheart. And the icing on the cake, he's a fantastic single daddy. Piper is a feisty sweet cutie with a great sense of humor. I fell hard for her. And the kids!!! I do love me a story where the kids are active in the story. I loved everything about this book.

I listened to the audiobook. It's duel male/female narrators. Both were very good!

This is my first ever audiobook review! Last time I tired an audiobook was when it was just starting out and I didn’t really enjoy it and I stopped after hearing a few mins so I decided to give it another go and what do you know, I had a lot of fun. I will definitely be trying more audiobooks in the future. I think it was a safe bet to choose an authors books I enjoy and Lauren Blakely and the enemies to lovers trope was good choice to begin with. Onto the review…

OMG, I love this book! A snarky, sweet and sexy frenemies-to-lovers romance with all the feels! I laughed and swooned and I fell in mad love with these characters and their chemistry-filled journey to a HEA. It’s such a fun read, and a definite fave from Lauren Blakely.

Zach and Piper are a part of the same group of friends from College. They didn’t get on then, and now in their 30s, they still don’t get on, which is really awkward considering they share office spa“You

The wedding planner and the divorce lawyer. It shouldn’t be a match made in heaven, but fate decided otherwise. Zach and Piper have known each other since their college days, and thought they hated each other. Zach certainly didn’t do much to endear himself to Piper when they met unexpectedly at one of the weddings she had planned. That was ten years ago.
Today, they have offices across the hall from one another, but their feelings haven’t changed. They’re drawn together when both are picke

I've given this an A- for narration and a B- for content at AudioGals.

Never Have I Ever is the latest Audible Original story from the powerhouse of contemporary romance, Lauren Blakely. It’s a charming, funny and sexy enemies-to-lovers tale that follows the development of the romance between a vivacious, successful wedding planner and a widowed hot-shot divorce lawyer. The principals are likeable, the story is low on drama but still packs an emotional punch here and there, and the narration is excellent, so/>Never

Narrated by Jason Clarke and Amanda Ronconi I loved the back-and-forth banter between divorce attorney Zach Nolan, a widowed, daddy of two and, single wedding planner, Piper Radcliff. The two have known each other quite a while and have the same circle of friends, heck they even share office space in the same building. I quickly slipped in and was ready to see how things unfolded.

Enemies to lovers ✔
Single dad ✔

All of the above is packed into this head-over-heels, heartfelt, story of sexiness.

Something I love about this story was how deeply emotional it was in moments. You don't see that much in LB's books because she keeps things light and fun. Don't get me wrong, it was definitely fun in many ways, but between Zach's love as a father and his

Her narrators are among the best in many readers/listeners' opinions.
I enjoyed this audio book. I especially loved the beginning-the set up of this frenemies to lovers story.
The hero, Zach and the heroine, Piper have known each other since their college days. They had friends within the same social circle, but weren't friends or even friendly to each other.

So this story surprised me. I went in thinking Lauren Blakely enemies-to-lovers rom-com. We met Sloane's spunky friend, Piper, in Satisfaction Guaranteed . She is also friends with Jason from Instant Gratification. She is a wedding planner extraordinaire who is a wiz at problem-solving, managing, peacemaking, and getting all the details right. She is also single and planning on staying that way.

Zach Nolan has been part of her larger friend group since college, but she has never really liked him. He is the negativity to her pos

Zach and Piper are part of the same friend group, but don't really get along. Piper is a wedding planner with the goal of making happily-ever-afters and Zach is a divorce attorney with a gift for picking out marriages that are going to fail and why. Naturally Zach rubs Piper the wrong way when they're younger.

Cut to their 30s and they're office-mates, Piper with a booming business and Zach doing ok as well, but as a widower with a young daughter. The two find themselves as best man and maid of

5 SMOOCHES!

I'm going to be honest here, I haven’t met a Lauren Blakely novel that I didn’t love. An all-time top favorite of mine, she is one of the very few authors whose books are automatic buys for me. It’s not even necessary for me to read the blurb because regardless of what the premise of story is, what trope the plot is based upon or who the characters are, I already know Blakely’s special brand of storytelling is going to entertain and amuse me. This isn’t something I say off-handedly, l

I never quite know what to expect when I read an enemies-to-lovers romance because there are stories where the hero and heroine don’t seem to be each other’s enemy because they’re complete strangers or only have random interactions that truly wouldn’t be categorized as adversarial face offs. When I think of the true scope of a romance in this trope, I see it as two characters on opposing sides, either personally or professionally, who can’t stand one another and makes that fact abundantly clear. ...more

Another awesome read by Lauren Blakely. This side of romance isn't my go-to but when I do, I find I thoroughly enjoy Ms. Blakely's books for a lighter read. She makes them fun, sexy, light-hearted, hot as hell and the characters are always such fun to read. Never Have I Ever was just that for me, and something I needed, but hadn't realized it. It was a enemy to lovers romance, with two complete opposites.

Piper is a wedding planner. She is cute, sweet, sassy and all-round an awesome female lead,

She never disappoints. The banter between them was so great. The attraction that they had for each other was radiating off the pages. And the chemistry between them, all I can say is WOW.

Never Have I Ever has quickly become one of my most favorite Lauren Blakely books, EVER. I absolutely LIVE for frenemies to lovers romance stories and the connection between Piper and Zach was not to be denied! Piper and Zach had a history and ran in the same circle of friends until one day, Zach noticed Piper in a different light. From there, their story just sucked me in. I laughed, I teared up and I enjoyed every moment of their journey. A definite MUST read for any romance lover <3

“Something breaks inside me. Something breaks beautifully … It’s not the awareness of what I’m feeling. I’m not a stupid guy. I’m smart and I’ve known for weeks what’s been happening. Instead, it’s the acceptance of it, the surrender to it, to falling ridiculously in love again.” 1 likes
“What are you doing to me?”
“I don’t know. What am I doing to you?” She drags her nails down my chest playfully.
I stroke my thumb along her jaw and give her all my truths. “You make me feel so many things. You make me feel everything. For the longest time I never thought I would feel this way again.”
She trembles, and her eyes flash with the same surrender that’s inside me. “How do you feel?”
I don’t look away. I can’t.
“I would hope it’s patently obvious that I’m in love with you. But just in case, let me say it.” I cup her cheeks. “I’m in love with you. And I love you madly.”
