Title: I Have Never
Author: Camilla Isley
Release Date: July 13th, 2017
Genre: Chick Lit
Twenty-nine-year-old Blair Walker is a girl with a plan, or more a girl with a list. A list of dos and don’ts to live the perfect life, land a dream career, and marry Mr. Right.
When Blair loses her job and gets dumped by her boyfriend all in one day, she starts to wonder if she’s had it all wrong. And what better way to find out than experience everything the list forbade?
With hilarious consequences, Blair will discover some items are trickier to tick off than she’d thought…
A laugh out loud romantic comedy perfect for fans of Lindsey Kelk, Sophie Kinsella, and Mhairi McFarlane. First Comes Love is a series of interconnected romantic novels. However, each book in the series can be read as a standalone novel.
Last year I read the first book in this series, Love Connection and I adored it! While you can easily read I Have Never as a standalone, there are characters from the first book in this one as well. Plus, Isley has the unique ability to come up with a totally fresh premise for her books that is always so much fun, why would you wanna miss out?!
Blair is the ideal chick lit heroine, she's sweet, a little sassy and hilarious. When her perfectly planned life starts to fall apart she decides to deviate from her list. What's on her list? Her rules for life, things like don't move in before you get a ring and don't get drunk. Instead of a bucket list it's basically the antithesis and the results were so funny! Richard from the first book is back, which totally made my day, I loved his character the first time around and catching up with him was a treat.
One of my favorite things about reading an Isley book is that I find myself smiling the entire time. There is so much humor and warmth in her books and her lead characters are always super relatable and down to earth. Her writing style is as witty and charming as the characters she creates, if you're a fan of this genre and haven't read one of her books you're missing out! I hear book three in this series is a Christmas read which just makes me even more excited!
Overall rating: 4.5/5
