it was amazing
Recommended to Shelby by: Kailin Gow
Recommended for: Ya contemporary romance lovers

over Thoughts-
I love this punk rock cover! Everything about it screams Never Knight, from her red hot heels to her deadly black nails and of course her sexy guitar. I absolutely adore this cover.

First Thought-
Who doesn't want to read about a teenage rebel trying to become famous but avoid love? Go for him Neve!

What I liked-
Kailin Gow is genius. All her books are amazing and yet so different. Circus Summer is her dystopian. Never Say Never is her contemporary romance. And Frost is her paranormal series. She could write about anything! After finishing the shocking ending of Never Say Never I did some research on Kailin Gow's books. I seriously must read more of her writing. I don't believe she could write a single uninteresting book. Never Say Never is on my favorites list now and that is really hard to believe because usually only paranormal fantasies on my favorites list. First off the beginning, She describes the music The Never Knights are playing. One line that really caught my attention is, "The music is pulsing; I can feel it around me in waves, feel my body twisting and turning as my voice echoes through the microphone, refracting like shattered glass through the room." Every line of the beginning is attention grabbing that there was no way I could put it down. Then I read on, what got me the most was Neve didn't want to use her dad's celebrity status to further her own. She could become downright famous if she had just used her dads name in everything! Although her dad did not approve of her becoming a punk rock legend like himself she still kept on going. My favorite part of the whole book was when Danny Blue walked in for their band audition and changed their band forever. Of course Neve can't help the churning emotions inside her and she simply can not stop feeling what she does for the newest band member. But could this crush split her band apart forever before she even gets the recording contract she has dreamed of? The ending really surprised me but I can't ruin the whole book for you. I will just say that Danny Blue is the definition of sexy in the punk rock dictionary.

What I disliked-
How could I possibly find something that bothered me in this fantastic book? It might not be one I'm used too. I haven't read a lot of New Adult novels but this book has got me interested in this genre. One thing, only one thing has me disappointed how does Neve make every performance perfect? If she is completely emotionally unstable then maybe a performance should be unstable too? I just felt like one super awful performance should happen to spice up the series a little. Really Never say Never has everything I could want in a book.

Overall Readability-
Punk rock legends, sexy guitar players, wild party nights, big famous dreams, all in one awesome book. This is totally not one I will forget. Every time I turn on my i-pod I think Neve and The Never Knights and how I wish I had their CD. It's inspiring really, I wish I had the talents that they do. I finishing Never Say Never is one night and was sadly disappointed I have to wait awhile for the second book to be released. If you want to change up what you usually read or you like contemporary romance with a kick I dare you to read this book. I promise you won't regret it.

My Final Thought-
NO! He can not come back! Now the band will probably suck. :(
