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 see red.

I am going to keep this short and sweet, Say WHAT...
Yes, I know I usually write a bunch but with this book and Lauren Blakey, I can honestly say...

Never Have I Ever been disappointed by anything written by Blakely.
This tale has a man who has the desire to make sure women are represented well in divorce court...Making sure they are able to stand up against those who are trying to hurt them.

Then we have a woman whose heart is in the right place. Loves weddings

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 c

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.

Piper is a wedding planner. One that is willing to go that extra step when needed

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 blend

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 are appealing, gregarious,

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

I had not read a Lauren Blakely's book in quite some time. I think the last I had read was over 3 years ago. No particular reasons for my staying away. I had mostly great experiences with her stories in the past, though I do remember wanting to try some of her new releases over the last couple of years but felt intimidated by the sheer number of her backlist and her intense publishing rhythm. I never knew which book to settle on, so I would move onto something else instead.

So this book, this book is THE book of this series.

Vintage LB.

A gentle enemies to lovers book, LB gives us Zach, a swoony, cocky, gorgeous single dad (divorce lawyer) and Piper, a sassy, sweet wedding planner. They've known each other since college but only in so far as being in the same friend group. Piper never much liked Zach and he married fairly young so they didn't cross paths too much.

They are in each other's lives more a bit later on (they have offices in the same building) and then nee

Reread the ebook and fell in love with Zach and Piper all over again! It was just as emotional and heartwarming as it was the first time. If you get a chance to listen to the audiobook though, I definitely recommend it!

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!

Happy reading/ listening!

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 aw

Although Never Have I Ever is quintessential Lauren Blakely when it comes to the sexiness, the heat, the witty banter, and the fun and flirtiness, it also has a more emotional element than many of her contemporary romances and that’s what really drew me into Zach and Piper’s story.
I like that Ms. Blakely can bring the feels without bringing the drama.

Piper and Zach are what I’d call frenemies- not quite enemies, yet not quite friends. I really enjoyed their dynamic- the wedding planner and

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 picked as b
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 e

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.

This is a cute enemies-to-lovers romance. Piper and Zach has known each other since college. They never quite gotten along. Years later Piper and Zach found themselves working in the same building where Zach is a lawyer and Piper is a wedding planner. Zach was married with two kids but his wife passed away. Piper and Zach’s situation hasn’t improved at all - still hating each other I like the banters – so much fun and flirtatious. Zach’s children are adorable and they got along well with Piper. ...more

Never Have I Ever was absolutely fantastic!!!!

Enemies to lovers ✔
Single dad ✔
Second chances for love ✔
Strong heroine ✔

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 developing love for Piper, I was most cert

I absolutely loved this story. Lauren Blakely really knows how to write fun romance. The only reason I minused a star is because the "romance" is unnecessarily sexualized. Personally, I find it cringe-worthy to hear explicit language in the middle of an otherwise fun story. And because it's an Audible, it's even worse and difficult to fast forward through. I'll be sure to look at the "sizzle meter" before I read another one of her books! 😉 ...more
I really look forward to Lauren Blakely's books & especially the audio books.
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.
The story starts out a few years after college when Zach is a

I know everyone loved this book, but it really really didn't do it for me.

I needed something fast, easy, cute, a weekend-read. I wasn't looking for commitment, just something nice and sweet, and who better to choose than this author, right? She's usually great at stuff like this.

Unfortunately, nope, not with this book, not for me.

Everything felt off. The characters, the plot, the story. There was no chemistry, there was nothing that

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

I have read and enjoyed this author's books in the past, and if I am right I rated them 3.5 on an average. Then, I think she started a single-mom series which I didn't quite like. This is a story of a single-dad and h/H who have known each other a long time. The hero has been widowed 2 years and is raising his kids and working. This was a decent book, but nothing special.

I am seriously at a loss for words. Not in a bad way, not at all. But in that way you are when you read something and you know you won't be forgetting it any time soon, that it's going to linger and that you are going to immediately reread favorite parts.

There's nothing simple about this book or the way the plot is constructed. It tells the perfect story at the perfect pace that it allows you to move with the characters, to feel with them, and to fully

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.
Excellent narration, snappy banter, likable characters, minimal conflict, loads of tropes, family-centered, and steamy sexytimes.

I’d have probably enjoyed this better if I read it during Father’s Day. Zach is too perfect. The only blot in his character is being a divorce lawyer but even that was ennobled by his motivation for being one.

If you like your romance light and the road to HEA smooth and relatively obstacle-free, this one’s for you.

I adored Lauren Blakely's "Never Have I Ever" and found it very difficult to put down. I basically ignored my family and friends for an entire afternoon just so I could finish it! I really did have all the feels as I read, from tears of sadness to tears of laughter and joy.

The main characters, Piper and Zach, were incredibly well-developed and likeable. I loved their initial relationship and banter as frenemies, and their interactions only got better from there. Both Zach and Piper carried a lo

I absolutely loved, loved the characters, both the main and secondary ones, and story in the audible original Never Have I Ever by Lauren Blakely. Jason Clarke and Amanda Ronconi did an amazing job bringing Zach and Piper to life for me. Such a sweet and charming story that was light, fun and had me just getting lost in the journey.

“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.”
“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.” 2 likes
