⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Great writing; bad, bad boy

Never Lasting (Never Blue #1)

That man is TROUBLE all right. Our hero is the definition of a heartbreaker, because it is so, so easy to fall for him but he is also so, so bad for you…. something that our heroine learns along the way. The chemistry is off the charts from the very beginning between Tali and Jude, but they might be too young (and a little too dumb) to make things work the first time around. An intriguing and well written start to a duet, this book has all the highs and lows that come with young love – made all the more complicated by the fact that Jude is a musician slowly getting sucked into the rock star lifestyle.

The story follows Tali, a college student starting out at a new school. She’s decided to focus on her own goals for a while, but meeting Jude changes everything. He’s a musician on the cusp of making his big break, and while he doesn’t have any intention of starting something with Tali, the chemistry between them is impossible to ignore. He finds himself torn between music and his girl, and it soon becomes apparent that Jude might not be able to handle having both.

This has such a great early 2000s vibe that was fun to read. I loved the writing and the chemistry between Jude and Tali was undeniable. That being said, knowing that things wouldn’t work out between them (at least this time around) added a level of tension to the book – which I kinda liked and also struggled with. I found myself wanting to turn those pages to see how it all goes wrong, but it also made me that much more invested in their relationship. Not gonna lie, Jude has his flaws in this but underneath all that is love for Tali. Definitely looking forward to seeing what’s next for these two. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
