Publisher's Summary

What happens when two frenemies can't stop pushing each other's buttons? Find out in this tender, laugh-out-loud-funny romance from number-one New York Times best-selling author Lauren Blakely, available in audio first!   

Never Have I Ever been so infuriated by a man I wanted to kiss.  

They say opposites attract, but I beg to differ. Combust is more like it. Because every single time I talk to Zach Nolan, I see red.  

The too-good-looking, too-smart, too-effortlessly-charming single dad who works down the hall from me has turned getting under my skin into a sport. Call it the battle of wits between the wedding planner and the divorce attorney. 

Trouble is, when we’re forced into closer quarters, planning an engagement party for our best friends, I start to see his other sides.  

And I fear I’m falling for the enemy.  

*** 

I’m not out to make friends. My goals are simple - fight till the end for my clients, and my family.  

The last thing I need is a vibrant, outgoing, snarky, and surprisingly big-hearted wedding planner to spend my precious free time with...except, watching Piper bond with my daughter just might break down the cinder block walls I’ve built around my heart these last few years. 

Second chances don’t come around for guys like me...or do they?

Lauren does it again

This wonderful story of Piper and Zack has a beautiful rhythm. It’s two gentle souls who find their way through a most modern story of what love and family can be. I loved every sentence of this tale. Thanks Lauren.

Yes Please!!! Another winner from Lauren Blakely!! This is an author who never disappoints me and no matter what mood I am in one of her books always works for me!! This book has it all with Frienemies to Lovers and a Single Dad. The chemistry was hot and the love story was so sweet. I loved the relationship Piper had with Zach's kids even before the lovers thing started. I also loved that they have known each other for many years. Characters with a past are always a winner for me because the stories never seem rushed or like insta-love. This book had all the feels, I loved the snark and the swoon moments and everything in between.

If you've ever read one of my reviews for this author I will sound like a broken record by saying this but I LOVE that her characters are mature and they talk to each other. Her stories never have unnecessary drama and misunderstandings just to add drama. You can always rely on the characters to work things out quickly if there is any misunderstandings and they almost always jump in with both feet once they realize they are in love.

I was SUPER excited about the narration for this book because this is the first time that Amanda Ronconi narrated a Lauren Blakely book and I love her. She is perfect for a sweet and sassy female lead. I love her voice. Jason Clark is as always amazing in this book too. I love his guy next store, nice guy sounding voice. He can read to me any day ;)

5 fulfilling stars!!! Loved every single utterance

I can't even believe how much I loved this story. Zach is so sweet. He's so insecure. That kiss... oh, you know the one or will when you read/listen to it, GOOD LORD, I FELT that kiss... Wow! Piper and Zach.... they hate each other so, not at all... so much they might just fall in love. I can definitely tell you that I fell in love with them! I was beyond smitten with both main characters and Zach's children. The entire storyline was fantastic... if I wasn't literally laughing out loud, than I had this wistful and happy smile on my face, and I ended the book with tears streaming down my face (no joke)!!!

Jason Clarke had me giggling. I'm in love with the way Jason Clarke narrates little boys and his Bristish accent. I love that at one point wanker was nearly said half a dozen times in this delightfully British voice. I was so obsessed with the way he could change his voice. Now, Amanda Ronconi was fabulous!! I just love her voice. It's upbeat and fun and it's just an overall pleasant and happy voice. I can't help but want to listen to more books with her narration. She's an absolute gem... a peach!!

Lauren Blakely has a way with words.

Lauren Blakely has a way with words. It's not what she writes, but the way she presents it. Never Have I Ever finds the smile hiding behind the frustration. Zach and Piper bring out the worst in each other. The wedding planner and the divorce lawyer can't agree on anything. It's an uphill battle until a surprising twist has them seeing each other in a whole new light. Blakely provides the emotion, Clarke and Ronconi add the funny and Piper and Zach give off the heat. Over the top becomes larger than life.

Frenemies to lovers

Is it possible to just float from all the deliciousness of listening to a Lauren Blakely book? Yes, it is especially when it is narrated by Jason Clarke and Amanda Ronconi.

Zach Nolan is 10 kinds of "hot sexy man". He's a shark in the courtroom, he's an A+ single dad and he's an expert in giving his frenemy a hard time.

Piper Radcliff is a wedding planner extraordinaire. She has devoted her life to her business and has little time for love even though that is her business. Her office neighbor and long term frenemy irritates her to no end, that is until he doesn't.

Zach and Piper have a wonderful build up with all their banter back and forth and with them being friends in the same circle as well as sharing an office when their built up attraction finally explodes it is game on. Oh yes, this all begins with the game Never Have I Ever. Truths can be revealed in an innocent game or maybe it's not so innocent after all.

This audiobook is amazing. The story is fantastic. There is snarky back and forth, fireworks attractions, tender love, family, friends, and just living life in the best ways possible. Then add on the added bonus of getting to listen to Jason Clarke and Amanda Ronconi and it is a win win all the way.

I received an early copy of the audiobook to listen and review and give my honest opinion. This is a definite 5 stars for me. Love the story, and the narration is perfect.

I'm still swooning...

Never have I ever been disappointed with a Lauren Blakely book-and this one? This one is hands down one of my favorites. Frenemies to lovers and a single dad? Yes, please! This book made me smile and swoon and even brought me to tears.

Piper and Zach were an absolute delight to get to know. They're part of the same group of friends, but not exactly friendly initially which just made their interactions that much more fun. The banter between them had me smiling, and the way their relationship evolved just felt so natural and organic. I fell for Zach before Piper did; he just absolutely had my heart from the very start. These characters felt real and like people I would want to hang out with-so I'm ready to join their group of friends.

As mentioned above, Zach is a single dad. The interactions he has with his kids in this book were so incredible. I loved watching him figure out how to balance everyone and their needs-including his own. He's smart, sexy and has a sweet side that just made me melt. Piper is much the same way-and her kind and giving heart just made me smile.

The writing of this book is just superb. It's witty and fun and it just flows perfectly. I personally love how this Author weaves in characters (and places!) we've met before, but this is absolutely enjoyable as a standalone.

These narrators brought this book to life for me. I adore Jason Clarke (who doesn't) and I love all of his different tones and inflections for different characters. Amanda Ronconi was newer to me but her timing and tone were just impeccable. These two played off each other seamlessly and just were delightful to listen to. I didn't want to stop listening to this story!

I would honestly give this more stars for both the performance and the story if I could. I truly believe these narrators nailed these characters and brought them to life so very well. As for the story, I said before and I'll say again that this is one of my favorite Lauren Blakely books. This is heart, humor and heat with a side of sweet. I loved it and can't wait to listen again.

NEVER HAVE I EVER.. not loved her stories

Never have I ever been disappointed with a Lauren Blakely book.. never have I ever thought “meh what chemistry?”.. never have I ever been tempted by another book while listening to one of hers.. never have I ever done anything but marvel at her wonderfully wide and varied storylines. Never have i ever been disappointed with her choice of narrators.. never have I ever done anything but love her characters.. never have i ever not laughed at her humor.. and never have i ever not been touched by her passionate, tender, loving scenes. And in this story LB once again ups the ante with a frenemies plotline between two very different people from the same group of friends whose impenetrable walls finally start to crumble allowing them to look beyond the barriers and truly see the person that's been protecting their hearts all along.

A a shark of a Divorce Attorney who is also a widower with baggage and father of two.. and a once divorced Wedding Planner have years of bickering to their backstory, have angst-ridden barbed banter and verbal missiles between them and have a hundred reasons why a relationship between them shouldn’t and couldn't work. But luckily for them (and us), Ms Blakely weaves her magic, spins her addictive and entertaining tale and creates a dual POV story that’s packed full of deliciously impressive feels as they chart the muddy waters of a future together. Jason Clarke (..sigh) is brilliant as ever and so too is Amanda Ronconi and between them they became the characters, brought a wealth of emotion and ensured that this was another 5 star audiobook.

Worth a credit? Yup absolutely.. but it's another chance to Escape with Audible for free.. oh lucky lucky us.

Loved this delightful frenemies to lovers romance!

I loved this delightful frenemies to lovers romance! It was so sweet, touching, and steamy. Zach and Piper were acquaintances in college, having the same group of friends. Ten years later they continue to hang with the same friends, are both successful and work in the same building. They have always been like fire and ice, exchanging barbs whenever they are together. But all of a sudden, their taunts have become more fun and fiery, adding fuel to their growing sexual tension. They both have things in their pasts that make it hard for them to know how to handle these powerful new feelings. But between Zach's adorable children, and their fun, loving and supportive friends, that won't be a problem for long. Zach with his kind and gentle nature and his devotion to his kids, first and foremost, then to his family, friends, and clients, makes him so swoony and my favorite hero! Put them together and I am totally in love with Zach and Piper! They are both strong, witty, and caring people, and their chemistry and passion is off the charts. The narration by Jason Clarke, and Amanda Ronconi, is truly one to savor. Their comedic timing is impeccable, delivering Blakely's signature witty banter flawlessly. Their voice changes were so compelling, including the young children, and they easily made me feel all the turmoil, fun, and passion between these characters. I loved this unique, refreshing, witty romance, with mind melds, firsts, lists, and letters being some of my favorite highlights that brought me to tears, made me swoon, and laughing out loud. Blakely continues to create hilarious, touching, and hot and sexy romances that capture my heart and Clarke and Ronconi helped make Never Have I Ever a masterpiece!

Needs 10 Stars

Still swooning and can't think straight. This one has all the feels. Two of my favorite narrators made this book come alive and shine brighter than all the stars in the sky.
