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.
What does TWG think?
I am a HUGE, HUGE fan of Camilla Isley’s novels so as soon as I found out that I could read her newest one, AND be part of her blog tour, I felt like all my birthdays had come at once! Just like Ms.Isley’s other novels, ‘I Have Never’ is another novel which has you thinking ‘this sounds familiar!’ by the end of the first chapter (also known as – super relatable).
Blair has always been the type of girl to stick to a list; her five-year plan if you will. As far as she’s concerned the list is there to be abided by, not to go against. However, poor Blair seems to have picked the short straw as luck doesn’t seem to be on her side, especially as in one day she lost her job AND her boyfriend. Eeesh!
Blair has the type of personality a lot of women would admire, I know I certainly did! She’s sassy, feisty, knows her own mind yet has a heart of gold. The only thing that she struggles with is letting go. Until now.
Even though ‘I Have Never’ is the second book in the First Comes Love series, it can be read as a standalone. That said, the first book in the series is brilliant as well! May as well buy both then eh!
In all honesty, I don’t think I read this book without a smile on my face. The entire storyline was written brilliantly, it’s such a fun and uplifting novel, which, in my opinion, isn’t the vibe you get from the book to begin with. As always, Camilla Isley’s trademark humour oozes from the storyline AND the characters. I think I spent most of the time giggling at Richard’s antics or the puppy’s legendary communication skills.
For me, the best part of ‘I Have Never’ was the backwards bucket list – absolutely fantastic idea. Because of that, I was able to see Blair come out of her shell in a different way, it was as though she had learnt to find comfort within herself. Lovely to read.
I am having withdrawal symptoms already, I cannot WAIT for another Camilla Isley novel to be released. Such pocket-sized perfection, every single time. I LOVED this book, you will definitely be a numpty not to read this.
Thanks Camilla & Aimee B.
