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 in

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

5 stars!


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

This was such a fantastic listen! Never Have I Ever was such a great blend of funny, sexy, and heartfelt moments. It has all the classic Lauren Blakely romcom laughs, but it also has some very tender and emotional scenes too. This story has a little bit of everything, from enemies to lovers, to single parent, to forced proximity.

I loved Zach and Piper! Their playful back and forth heightened the sexual tension between them so deliciously. Truthfu

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,

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

5 star review of Never Have I Ever by Lauren Blakely

Audio review - If I could I would give this 10 stars

This was a slightly more serious story from Lauren Blakely as although it was full of steam and her trademark humour that has made her so successful, it also dealt with grief and moving on. Never Have I Ever is one of the best audio books that I have listened to this year.
You need to listen to this one and form your own opinions as for me it was a fabulous experience listening to Jason Clarke

I can't even believe how much I loved this story. Zach is so sweet. He's so insecure. That kiss... oh, you know the one or will when you read/listen to it, GOOD LORD, I FELT that kiss... Wow! Piper and Zach.... they hate each other so, not at all... so much they might just fall in love. I can definitely tell you that I fell in love with them! I was beyond smitten with both main characters and Zach's children. The entire storyline was fantastic... if I wasn't

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.

Zach and Piper knew each other from the same group of friends in college and meet again at a friend’s wedding and the two become frenemies that banter back and forth

I've been looking at Lauren Blakely's books for a while now. But I just couldn't seem to pull the trigger and read or listen to one. So when I got the chance to listen to Never Have I Ever, well, I jumped at the chance. Full disclosure, I did receive the audiobook for review, but all opinions are my own.

The story features Piper, a wedding planner, and Zach, a divorce lawyer. It sounds like the start of a bad joke, or a good enemies to lovers romance. Luckily we get the romance. I found both char

Never Have I Ever is a beautiful enemies-to-lovers, single dad Romance between a wedding planner and a divorce attorney. The story deals with some pretty serious topics. But it’s just so warm and sweet and will make you go “awww 😍”.

Zach and Piper have shared the same group of friends since college. But Piper was never happy that Zach joined their group. The banter between the two cracked me up.

However, due to proximity, their relationship develops from frenemies to Piper becoming best friends w

If you want to listen to a super cute no muss romance then I definitely suggest Never Have I Ever. I admit I started listening to this audiobook because I adore Amanda Ronconi. I first fell into some serious narration like for Amanda Ronconi when I listened to Molly Harper books. Ever since then I loved Amanda’s voice and would listen to read the dictionary. This is my first Jason Clarke audiobook and not my last because he definitely has a voice built for romance heroes.

Never Have I Ever had so many things I wanted to say and yet, the words are just stuck. How many times can I say the word awesome in a review? I mean, I wouldn't be wrong, because this book is awesome, but I need to be a little more articulate than that. So, here goes…ramblings by Kelly LOL.

Once again, Lauren Blakely hits it out of the park. With Never Have I Ever, Lauren brings depth to her classic rom-com style. Don't worry, I'm not talking Unbreak My Heart type depth, sheesh, I'm still not o

Never Have I ever not fallen in love with a Lauren Blakely book.
Never Have I Ever is Lauren Blakely's new epic enemies to lovers romance. I don't know if it's their banter, the smart, sexy, single dad, the tough, strong heroine or just the feel of the story, but it is one of my favorites of Lauren's and that's saying a lot. I've read every one of her books. And I do have my favorites. Zach is now fighting Chris for my top spot! Seriously, Chris! I had the pleasure of listening to this st

Never have I ever been disappointed with a Lauren Blakely book-and this one? This one is hands down one of my favorites. Frenemies to lovers and a single dad? Yes, please! This book made me smile and swoon and even brought me to tears.

Piper and Zach were an absolute delight to get to know. They're part of the same group of friends, but not exactly friendly initially which just made their interactions that much more fun. The banter between them had me smiling, and the way their r

I loved this delightful frenemies to lovers romance! It was so sweet, touching, and steamy. Zach and Piper were acquaintances in college, having the same group of friends. Ten years later they continue to hang with the same friends, are both successful and work in the same building. They have always been like fire and ice, exchanging barbs whenever they are together.

4.5🌟’s

You could call this book a second chance romance because each of them had experienced loved before but it’s really more a frenemy to lovers tale. These two have the same friends from college and have known each other for over ten years. As they hang in the same circles, they have the opportunity to share an office space in Manhattan. It is their thing to pay each other out so the banter starts out funny but over time turns more flirty and later on, dirty!

I loved Zach! From the onset he kn

Is it possible to just float from all the deliciousness of listening to a Lauren Blakely book? Yes, it is especially when it is narrated by Jason Clarke and Amanda Ronconi.

Zach Nolan is 10 kinds of "hot sexy man". He's a shark in the courtroom, he's an A+ single dad and he's an expert in giving his frenemy a hard time.

Piper Radcliff is a wedding planner extraordinaire. She has devoted her life to her business and has little time for love even though that is her business. Her offi

Yes!!! Another winner from Lauren Blakely!! This is an author who never disappoints me and no matter what mood I am in one of her books always works for me!! This book has it all with Frienemies to Lovers and a Single Dad. The chemistry was scorching hot and the love story was so sweet. I loved the relationship Piper had with Zach's kids even before the lovers thing started. I also loved that they have known each other for many years. Characters with a past are always a winner fo

Never have I ever read such a swoony book about a hot AF single dad/lawyer and an awesome wedding planner/big sister!

Zach and Piper were perfect in this story. Zach's priority is his two adorable kids. With them and his practice, he doesn't have time for romance. Piper is busy being the world's greatest wedding planner, and helping her sister and her partner have a baby. She knows what she wants in a relationship, and won't accept anything less. But somehow, she's seeing Zach in a new light, and

A romantic comedy with a single dad..what more could I ask for in a book/audible!

Lauren Blakey gives us this smart-talking Zach who is a single dad, divorce attorney who's a bit jaded at times and Piper who's a hopeless romantic wedding planner - a recipe for disaster!  These two share an office building and lots of mutual friends so their paths cross a LOT!

Piper is fantastic - she' strong-willed, driven and funny.  Zach is a single dad, raising two kids, working hard and focused on his family.

I surprisingly had a lot more fun with this book than expected. I love how the "Never Have I Ever" game was incorporated into this book without it being cheesy at all. Its done well and classy and not at all like one of those 'I Dare you' games. LB creates two fairly likable characters. Zach was absolutely wonderful and swoon worthy, and Piper, despite a few scenes of hers that i'd love to smack her in the head, I still enjoyed her character overall. I would have loved a bit more explanation abo ...more

I’ve not read many romances with widowers, but the ones I have, have been so touching, especially when they have children. Zach is a single dad who lost his wife a couple of years ago. He works hard as a divorce attorney, and he’s not a player or jaded. He is a champion to his clients. He works to keep (mostly women) from getting run over by their soon to be ex-husbands who are usually on the douchy side.

Across the hall of the brownstone Zach’s office is located in, is Piper the cheery wedding p

A divorce lawyer and wedding planner working across from each other is sure to have these two cross enemy lines. Zach and Piper have known each other since college. They run in the same circle with the same group of friends, but they can't stand each other (or so they say). Zach was a single father to two amazing kids (single dad not by choice) and Piper (who knew Zach's story) had a bond/relationship with Zach's kids, especially with his daughter Lucy. After Zach and Piper are asked to be best ...more

Lauren Blakely's stories never fail to disappoint. This is a sweet, funny tale of a widowed dad and the woman he (and she) thought was the enemy. Piper is a wedding planner and Zach a divorce attorney who share the same group of friends from college as well as work in the same building. Whenever they run into one another the barbs fly and they play the frenemies game, but then Zach's daughter befriends Piper on her visits to her dad's office in the afternoons and soon things begin to change betw ...more

Never Have I Ever was a cute, fun, and sweet romance. I loved that this was a frenemies to lovers story because it had the established history of people who’ve known one another for a long time, plus the sparks and sassiness of competing personalities. On top of a low angst, well-written story, the Never Have I Ever audiobook has two fantastic narrators who injected the perfect blend of emotion into each scene, bringing the characters to life and ensuring an enjoyable listen.

“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.” 0 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.”
