Slick's review posted at Guilty Pleasures Book ReviewsWhen born on the wrong side of the tracks self made millionaire Nathan Archer receives an invitation to his childhood best friend's wedding he knows it will be a difficult weekend and not just because of the pact he and his three friends made at age 16 to never get married, but because his best friend's younger sister Eleanor "Ellie" Marshall will be there. Ellie the girl, who saw too much, understood the hell his life was and always had a ki [...]

What can I say except that I was unexpectedly entertained by this book more than I thought I would be. Although that was a bit predictable since I have always been a fan of the friends-to-lovers spin.It did not take me long to get right into this story. Nathan and Ellie's may come off with an insta-lust/love-ish vibes but it wasn't really. Nathan had always Ellie when they were younger but couldn't do anything about it because she was his best friend's younger sister. And she always had a crush [...]

DNF 47%.Unlikable hero, I didn't find the sexy scene hot. Another demanding alpha dominate male that annoys me rather than intrigue.Sorry this is not my cup of tea, I am sure it is just me.

I am really happy that Nate rose above his horrible, abusive childhood and became a successful millionaire. But when he returns back home for his best friend's wedding, the townspeople still treat him like trailer trash. But what really hurts Nate is that Ellie, the woman he's always loved, seems to still be ashamed to be seen with him. Is there a chance that Ellie will ever see Nate as the kind, generous and loving man that he really is?

I dunno what just happened, but I read this book in the last 3 hours!#TRUTH #WIN (huge win, gigantic win, ginormous win, ALL THE WINS)

Nate has been her secret crush as long as she can remember but he his her brothers friend.Ellie has always been in the back of Nates mind there was always something about her he was drawn to but she is off limits because she is Chase's sister and he was damaged and dominant and she [...]

Really enjoyed this book! Great characters and story. Well written. Looking forward to more!

I'm usually a little worried when two authors write a book together.will their styles flow, will they both have the same passion, etcI have read everything that Carly Phillips' has released but I have never read anything by Lauren Hawkeye. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. Only a few times during reading I would think "This is definitely Carly's writing." but for most of the story I couldn't tell and I was really glad about that.This story is Nate Archer's. Nate grew up with a bad family [...]

Review copy provided by publisherI've been a fan of Carly Phillips for years and was super excited to read her newest book written with Lauren Hawkeye. I absolutely love the chance to get more and more books each year from favorite authors as they team up with other authors for new stories. I am adding to my to-be-read list with each new to me author. I have to say that Never Say Love was an absolutely amazing start to a new series from Carly Phillips and Lauren Hawkeye.Never Say Love is Nate an [...]

So much for pacts.Ellie Marshall is having a bad day.

Wow, loved this story, it is a sizzling hot read. I love both of these authors and they really hit this one out of the park. Eleanor Marshall has just had her boyfriend break up with her and now she must go to her brothers wedding by herself. She had always prided herself as the good girl, the smart responsible, capable one. But for one night she would just like to have a fling and not have to worry about being in control. Nathan Archer has been busy building the Archer Hotel Empire and has lost [...]

I know that I'll enjoy the read when I pick up a Carly Phillips book. I was interested in reading this collaboration with Lauren Hawkeye, Never Say Love. I enjoyed this first book, Never Say Love, of Phillips and Hawkeye's new series, Never Say Never. The idea of making a pact to never marry and keeping it many years later, sets up all kinds of possibilities for a romance. I couldn't wait to see what was in store with Nate and Ellie. I'm a sucker for an unrequited love/secret crush romance and N [...]

This book was spectacular! I do not often give out 5 stars, but I loved every second of this book!Nate is swoon-worthy. Even though he knew how we was portrayed in the tabloids, he didn't let that define who he really was. I loved that he didn't blink when his friend was getting married, even though they had said they never would. The only reaction he had was he knew it meant he would see Eleanor again, and she was the one person he knew could get through his walls, and that worried him. I LOVED [...]

Finally Letting You In!!!Nathan Archer never wanted to settle down, he only wanted his freedom. He and his friends made a promise when he was 15 years old, "No weddings". Nathan saw how bad things were for his mom who had been married to an abusive prick. What Nathan never counted on was to break his promise for the beautiful, shy woman who had a piece of his heart since their were younger. His best friend's little sister, Eleanor "Ellie" Marshall. Ellie too had a crush for Nathan since they wer [...]

4.5 StarsI wasn't really sure what I was expecting when I asked to receive the advance copy of this "surprise" book by Carly Phillips and Lauren Hawkeye. What I do know is that it was a quick and sexy read. Ellie Marshall and Nate Archer have known each other since they were kids and both of them have had feelings for each other since then too. But neither of them ever spoke up. Ellie because she didn't think Nate would like a "girl like her" and Nate because she's the little sister of his best [...]

Read the full review on Bookaholics Not-So-Anonymous.Note: This ARC was provided by InkSlinger PR in exchange for an honest review.I liked Nate and Ellie's story, with it's falling-for-your-best-friend's-sibling trope headed by an alpha male who appears ready to fight for the only woman who's ever meant to him and a woman who's loved one man since she was a teenager but isn't sure if he'll ever settle for a life with her. It's also a bad-boy-falling-for-the-good-girl romance and with the usual a [...]

Never Say Love is a sizzling romance and I loved it!Nathan Archer and Eleanor Marshall have known each other since they were kids. They always had a strong connection but there was always a major obstacle – Eleanor was the kid sister of Nathan’s best friend. But Eleanor was the only one who truly understood Nathan. Abused by his stepfather, Nathan will always be the town bad boy. But despite his broken family Nathan is a successful millionaire. But even with his success he’s never been as [...]

I'm a huge fan of both of these authors and was so glad to have gotten this from them. This story is about four boys who made a pack while they were 16yrs old to never get married. The day Nate Archer climbed into his best friend tree house after taking the brunt of his stepfather so abuse. He is the boy that doesn't fit in and even now as a successful tycoon he is nervous about returning home.Ellie Marshall is Chase younger sister and Nate always had a crush on her. She has just been dumped by [...]

Never Say Love by Carly Phillips and Lauren Hawkeye is the first book in their new Never Say Never series. Never Say Love is a second chance romance, but it is so much more than that. It's also a best friend's little sister/big brother's best friend story. Hero Nate Archer escapes his abusive stepfather by hanging with his three close friends. Heroine Ellie Marshall is the younger sister of Nate’s best friend Chase. The characters were well written and complex. Both characters came a long way [...]

This was a great read. Nate was the boy from the wrong side. Ellie is the little sister of Chase (Nate's best friend). When they all meet back in their home town for Chases wedding, even though there was a pact made between all of the guys that grew up together never to get married, Nate and Ellie get thrown together and realize that they still have chemistry and maybe they do belong together. Will Nates playboy ways or Ellie's family hurt their chances of making it work. This is a great start t [...]

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I should only post one word about this book: HAWT! But then I’d leave out amazing, deeply touching, gut-wrenching, wonderful story. Hawt works, though! The story is about Nathan Archer and Eleanor Marshall and their journey towards their HEA. Ms. Phillips and Ms. Hawleye created a story that I hope continues with other characters we’ve met. Nathan’s story will touch you in ways that you cannot imagine. My heart broke for the [...]

This Book was a total Surprise!!! and it was the best EVER!!!! I love Carly Phillips books but I have to say I've never read a book by Lauren Hawkeye and after reading this that is definitely going to change!! Nate Archer made a promise when he was 16 with his 3 best friends -They were never getting married-. At the same time Nate had a crush on one of his best friends younger sister Ellie but told himself "Hands Off". Fast forward about 15years and Nate receives a very formal looking envelope - [...]

Nate made a vow when he was 16 years old NEVER to get married! His best friends Gabe, Lucas and Chase took the same vow. They had all been there while Nate was growing up and being beaten by the stepfather from hell. They had lived Nate's experience of abuse on himself and his mother by a man that should have been kicked in jail if only Nate's mother had been strong enough.We read stories of abuse all the time. Normally, this theme leads to an abhorrence of any kind of relationship whatsoever th [...]

Nate Archer has always been a person to live up to the promises he's made and that includes one with his best buddies when he was 15 years old - one where they agreed they would all remain bachelors and never get married. We all know best laid plans and all When Nate finds out his best pal Chase has fallen head over heels and wants Nate to be in his wedding, his first thought isn't about the fact that there is going to be a wedding, but that he is going to see Chase's baby sister, Ellie, again a [...]

Never Say Love is a second chance romance, but it is so much more than that. It's also a best friend's little sister/big brother's best friend story, and it is hot, hot, hot! I will be telling everyone I know about this book because it has really wowed me!The characters were well developed and complex. Ellie is a well-respected optometrist. Nate is a hotel tycoon. They've both come a long way from the mousy good girl and the bad boy from the wrong side of the tracks that they used to be. They ar [...]

This book was a surprise release by the authors, and wow, was I surprised! This is one hot and steamy romance! That teenage crush, back in full force, in adulthood at long last! Or was it ever just a crush?Nate was Chase's close friend, since they were teenagers. Ellie was Chase's sister, and therefore, was off limits to Nate. At least until Chase decides to break the pact that he and his friends made to never get married. Then, Chase's wedding brings Nate and Ellie face to face, once more and s [...]

With Nate and Ellie there is a history that neither wants to taint. There has always been that little undercurrent that threatens to become an electronic overload. I received an ARC of Never Say Love in exchange for an honest review. Ms. Hawkeye and Ms. Phillips worked well together and created a story that is as hot-blooded as it is dramatic. A noteworthy well crafted body of work. Made of steel and with a noticeable chip on his shoulder, Nate is a man that has to be in control in ever aspect o [...]

Never Say Love by Carly Phillips and Lauren Hawkeye gripped me from the start and did not let go. I found myself emotionally connected to this story and burned through the pages wanting to find what would happen next. Though this is the first book in a series, it tells a complete story. In this story you meet Nathan Archer, a self-made man who knows what he wants and won't settle for less. This includes his best friend's sister, Eleanor Marshall. Nate has vowed to live his life with no committme [...]

Ellie and NateEllie was Chase's younger sister and off limits to his friends, including Nathan. Nathan made a pact as a young teen with his fellow buddies, to never get married, which stemmed from years of physical abuse from his stepdad. Ellie had always felt sorry for Nathan and would try to ease his pain when his stepdad would beat him, they never talked about it but somehow they connected over it.

The holy Grail of girls who is viewed as unattainable, proper, and nerdy. There is Nothing worse than the world around you dictating who you belong with who you should love and how you should act.

*I received this in exchange for an honest review*Wow, this new writing duo just blew me away! They created such wonderful characters, I just fell in love! "She'd always fancied herself a vanilla kind of girl," Ellie is adorable but all grown up and she sure knows what she wants! "Complete satisfaction and terror were tightly entwined in Nate's gut, and they didn't seem interested in letting go anytime soon." Nate is one strong alpha male, trying to resist the urge of his friends little sister a [...]

MY REVIEWOlder brother's best friendhdingeing each other again after a few yearsgotta love it when a childhood crush turns into an adult romance.Basically the entire book takes place over the weekend of Ellie's older brother's wedding. Nate is the best friend that was from the wrong side of tracks. I wish they would have gone into a little more about how the two interacted as teenagers and what about his home life was not approved of by Ellie's parents.Definitely a hot spicy one!I can't help but [...]

Carly Phillips has done it again  and this time she did it with Lauren Hawkeye! If you are looking for a book that's all about second chances and long buried crushes then this is the book for you. "Never Say Love" is the story of Nate and Ellie and what was supposed to be a hot weekend fling. Oh it was for sure HOT HOT HOT! Ellie and Nate are the kind of characters that make you want to reach inside the book and strangle them because they are just so wrong but end up so right! Carly Phillips is [...]

A hot quick read, I enjoyed this new book from two great authors! Nate and Ellie always were attracted to each other, but never did anything about it. Now, Ellie's brother is getting married and the sparks are flying between the two. For a quick story, a lot happened. I enjoyed Nate's struggle with feeling good enough for Ellie and trying to come to terms with his past. The way he helped Ellie come out of her shell also made for a good read. I can't wait to read more books in this series.I recei [...]

OMG!!!! Love love this book. Here are a couple of my favorite quotes. Then u will know how heated this book gets." But the basic idea, yes. I want to own you. And make no mistake, we will not be sleeping together. I will be f***ing you. Hard."Her lips had already parted before he'd taken himself in hand and pressed the swollen head of his erection to the warm cavern of her mouth. Say what!!! That was awesome. Two teenagers that liked each other but because she was his best friends brother, they [...]

Gifted an ARC for an honest review……I loved Nate and Ellie’s story, although the premise of the story is the same old, same old, but what breathes life into it is the character development, dialogue, and writing style. You also never know when you read coauthored books what you’re going to get, I often find the writing styles are too easily identified. Carley and Lauren did a great job blending styles, keeping the book well paced, and developing the story. I am looking for ward to your n [...]
