Review – Never Never by Colleen Hoover and Tarryn Fisher

New York Times best selling New Adult specialist, Colleen Hoover, started her career in the overcrowded self published indie market with standalone, Slammed, successfully moving onto a contract with Atria, a division of Simon & Schuster. She completed, Never Never, a three part series under name brand, Hoover Ink, available at Amazon Digital Services. Part speculative fiction, romantic suspense and women’s read, the novellas reveal harrowing relations between twenty something students, Silas Nash and Charlize Wynwood. Breezing through part one (159 pages,) Hoover establishes that two straight protagonists really really share love. Sexting, cheating, and raunchy sex tapes prove their meaningful connection.
