Review - Never Say Never by Aimee Duffy

You now those books you sit down and practically devour in one sitting? Yeah? Well this was one of them for me. Okay, it was actually two sittings, but the kindle died. :o/

This is the third book by the talented Aimee Duffy that I've read and think it was my favorite.  I loved The Monster of Fame, which was the first book in the series. But I think I loved this one just a pinch more. There was something about Sander from the beginning that just did me in and made me swoon. You see, I have a secret obsession with romances that have the heros as movie stars who fall in love with the everyday girl. While Sander wasn't a movie star, he was pretty darn close. And well, he just made my heart pitter patter. Each time he was in a scene and we got to be in his head, I wanted more and more Sander. Forget Chloe...Let's just change the heroines name to Lacey. <3

The chemistry in this book was hot. Ms. Duffy made us wait for the big bang scene. Which was fine. It really drew out the sexual tension. And there was a lot! This book was so much more than just the attraction that Chloe and Sander tried to fight. Ms. Duffy added a back story to both Chloe and Sander that tugged our hearts and made us keep reading to see how it all came togehter.

I really enjoyed this story and I think you will too!

When pretend turns to desire, heartbreak is unavoidable.

Sander Chase needs a date for his ex-fiancée's engagement party, but he doesn't have time for a woman in his life. Between working on the TV show Do You Have What It Takes? and his band reforming, he's too busy for a relationship. What he needs is a pretend girlfriend. He thinks he may have found the perfect woman for the job, and the bribe he offers means she's sure to accept.

After losing her job in the film industry, breaking up with her movie star boyfriend, and finding out her mum has dementia, Chloe Butler returned to the UK determined to put her life back together. The last thing she needs is to parade around London on the arm of a celebrity, and after the heartbreak caused by her ex, she swore she'd never again date a star. But when Sander offers her a chance at her dream job, it's not something she can turn down.

As Chloe gets to know Sander she learns he's nothing like her scumbag ex. But she struggles to fight her attraction to him, knowing their relationship is only for show and their separation date is closing in fast.

Ignoring the insane chemistry between them should be easy for Sander, especially since he carries a secret that means there can be no future for them, but the more time he spends with Chloe, the harder it is to keep his hands to himself.

Content Warning: contains more denial than you'll find in a courtroom, more sexual tension than most people could handle, and explosive sex that some readers may find long overdue.
