Never Never: Part Two by Colleen Hoover & Tarryn Fisher
“Never forget that I was your first real kiss. Never forget that you’ll be my last.
And never stop loving me between all of them.
Never stop, Charlie.
Silas races against time as more truths unravel, while others twist tighter together. And now, the stakes are higher as Silas’ control slips and others begin to point fingers. Charlie is in trouble and he must be the one to bridge the chasm between their past and their present. Because somewhere between I love yous and Never Nevers and Never Agains, a truth they can’t imagine, beckons to be found.
“Where are you, Charlie?”
I don’t know why people are getting so riled up about this being a novella. Colleen made it clear with the first book that her publishing contract didn’t allow her to make this a full length novel. But because she wanted to write with Tarryn, the solution was to release them in 3 novellas, equaling a full length book. Yes, they have cliffhangers and she warned people. She’s getting all kinds of grief on social media about it, and it’s maddening. If you don’t like novellas or cliffhangers, wait until all 3 books are available. I normally hate cliffhangers, but like I would ever NOT read a CoHo book when it comes out?! And also THIS BOOK WAS AWESOME. Better than Part One. Gives us some answers this time around. It’s a must read.
Eight Hundred Grapes by Laura Dave
There are secrets you share, and secrets you hide…
Growing up on her family’s Sonoma vineyard, Georgia Ford learned some important secrets. The secret number of grapes it takes to make a bottle of wine: eight hundred. The secret ingredient in her mother’s lasagna: chocolate. The secret behind ending a fight: hold hands.
But just a week before her wedding, thirty-year-old Georgia discovers her beloved fiancé has been keeping a secret so explosive, it will change their lives forever.
Georgia does what she’s always done: she returns to the family vineyard, expecting the comfort of her long-married parents, and her brothers, and everything familiar. But it turns out her fiancé is not the only one who’s been keeping secrets…
I wasn’t aware that Laura Dave even had a new book coming out this year until I saw my friend Michelle post about it here. I remember reading her last novel, The First Husband, and absolutely loving it. Then, I read the synopsis of this book and was giddy with excitement. Romance, humor, WINE. Doesn’t it sound like the perfect book for me?! I immediately went to Netgalley and was so excited that it was a Read Now option. So far I am loving it!
Unbound by Cara McKenna
She set out to find herself, and discovered the darker side of desire.
Merry’s lost a lot recently—first her mother, then close to a hundred pounds. Feeling adrift, she strikes out in search of perspective. A three-week hike through the Scottish Highlands was supposed to challenge her new body and refocus her priorities, but when disaster strikes, she’s forced to seek refuge in the remote home of a brooding, handsome stranger…
Rob exiled himself to the Highlands years ago, desperate to escape his own self-destruction. Haunted by regrets, he avoids human contact at all costs…but when Merry turns up injured, he can’t very well run her off. And as he nurses her back to health, Rob can’t resist his guest’s sweet demeanor—or her flirtatious advances. The igniting passion between them rouses a secret appetite Rob has long struggled to keep hidden. But Merry craves nothing more than to help Rob surrender to his desires, and the journey draws the lovers into an entirely different kind of wilderness.
