Bound by a vow with his friends, hotel tycoon Nathan Archer refuses to settle down and tie the knot. His only commitment is to bachelorhood. Granted, that contract was made when he was 15 years old… and in a treehouse. Still, a promise is a promise. And Nate takes his promises seriously.

But when cute little Eleanor Marshall walks back into his life, this blast from the past is no longer the timid little girl he used to know. When Ellie propositions him for a night of sizzling, unattached sex, Nate can’t refuse. Besides, it’s only one night. And Nate is never going to settle down.

Never say never…

My Review

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 happy as he was with Eleanor in his life. Eleanor has become a prominent optometrist and loves her career. But her family still treats her like a perfect good girl. Nathan and Eleanor reunite for her brother’s wedding and their chemistry is intense. Their passion for each other goes beyond sex but will Eleanor’s family get in the way of their happiness? You have to read this to find out!

This was my first time reading from Carly Phillips and Lauren Hawkeye and I loved this! The story flowed perfectly that I forgot this was written by two authors. I loved Nathan and Eleanor. They were both well-developed characters and I felt their connection. The romance is steamy but they also had a soulmate love story. Everything about this book was perfect and I can’t wait to read more from these authors.

About Lauren Hawkeye

Lauren Hawkeye/ Lauren Jameson never imagined that she'd wind up telling stories for a living... though when she looks back, it's easy to see that she's the only one who is surprised. Always "the kid who read all the time", Lauren made up stories about her favorite characters once she'd finished a book... and once spent an entire year narrating her own life internally. No, really. But where she was just plain odd before publication, now she can at least claim to have an artistic temperament.

Lauren lives in the Rocky Mountains of Alberta, Canada with her husband, toddler, pit bull and idiot cat, though they do not live in an igloo, nor do they drive a dogsled. In her nonexistent spare time Lauren can be found knitting (her husband claims that her snobby yarn collection is exorbitant), reading anything she can get her hands on, or sweating her way through spin class. She loves to hear from her readers!
