“I absolutely fell in love with this series when I read the first book, Never Say Never. Eighteen-year-old Neve Knight is the lead singer in her band, The Never Knights. Her dream has always been to have a band of her own and that dream has become a reality. In book one, Geoff was injured and was replaced by Danny Blue, who Neve fell hard and heavy for, breaking her own rule of never dating anyone in the band. This caused tremendous conflict, especially when she found out that both Kyle and Luc had feelings for her. To keep the band together, Danny Blue steps down, and Geoff resumes his place playing guitar. The book begins with the band in London, touring. Geoff has had a constant problem with drugs and alcohol, which has gotten completely out of hand, and he has a history of being very inappropriate with Neve. This is taken to a whole new level in Never Land, with all the scandal and drama you would typically see in the tabloids. Neve does not want or need this for the band. Danny Blue, her knight in shining armor, helps to save the day. As Neve's relationship with Danny progresses, she begins to meet people in London, where Danny is from, including his father, stepmother, and friends and family of his dead girlfriend Peyton. As the story progresses, Neve finds out that Danny Blue has a whole world of secrets that she just doesn't know if she can handle, and when she confides in someone about this, it blows back up in her face, threatening to destroy everything she loves and has worked for. Not only does she battle feeling like "second best" or a "replacement" in Danny's life, she must also face the fact that her choices might cost her everything....the band, her friends, and most of all the man she loves.
I have to say that the Never Knights Series is my most favorite of all Kailin's series. I love the whole rock band scene. I really like Neve. She really has to face a lot in this story, making some really hard choices, some of which she is not too proud of. Danny Blue, total hotness, swoon-worthy, the guy dreams are made of. I loved him and then wanted to slap him because of the way he treated Neve sometimes. He has so many hurts from the past, and I was glad to see him begin to open up a little in this book. I still have to wonder if he will stick to his guns and his choices in the next book in the series. I believe he cares for Neve, maybe even loves her, but will he stick it out with her with things get hard. That remains to be seen, and I am still not sure if I trust him. I can't wait to see what happens next in their relationshiop. The guys in the band.....all of them are totally hot. Steve is the most level headed. Kyle, though hot, is an emotional mess. Luc, is dark, swoonworthy, and a little mysterious. I am anxious to see how things with him play out at the series progresses. I loved the story line. The book is not very long, but there is a whole lot of drama packed in those pages. The chemistry between Neve and Danny has sparks flying everywhere, and the romance is really hot, but there are also a few sparks flying between Neve and someone else in this book........not to mention all of Danny's old flames, which keep coming back to haunt him and torment Neve. If you love contemporary romance, hot guys, and rock and roll, this is one book you won't want to miss. Kailin Gow has done an outstanding job in the second book of this series and I can't wait to see where she takes it from here.
