Product Description

Product Description

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…

Never Say Love is a second chance romance, but it is so much more than that. It's also a best friend's little sister/big brother's best friend story, and it is hot, hot, hot! I will be telling everyone I know about this book because it has really wowed me!

The characters were well developed and complex. Ellie is a well-respected optometrist. Nate is a hotel tycoon. They've both come a long way from the mousy good girl and the bad boy from the wrong side of the tracks that they used to be. They are thrown together for Chase's wedding (Ellie's brother and Nate's best friend), and somehow they end up sharing the same hotel room by mistake. Will they still be attracted to each other after all these years? And if so, do they dare act on it?

I was already a fan of Carly Phillips' books, but this is my first book by Lauren Hawkeye, and I am incredibly impressed! The plot was riveting and kept my attention to the very end. I just could not put it down!

This book was spectacular! I do not often give out 5 stars, but I loved every second of this book!

Nate is swoon-worthy. Even though he knew how we was portrayed in the tabloids, he didn't let that define who he really was. I loved that he didn't blink when his friend was getting married, even though they had said they never would. The only reaction he had was he knew it meant he would see Eleanor again, and she was the one person he knew could get through his walls, and that worried him. I LOVED his wedding present for his friend. It shows that he is not who everyone, including his friends, think he is (and I wanted to hit Chase at one point for not seeing the real Nate!). It broke my heart when he thought he wasn't good enough for Ellie, even with all the success he had had.

Eleanor is the proverbial good girl. And she doesn't really like it. She doesn't stand up to her family when they are making cutting remarks. She instead grins and bears it. I loved seeing Ellie come out of her shell and truly blossom. Her lack of confidence in herself bled into what she thought Nate would want, and even when the signs were there, she didn't believe what she was seeing. I was so glad she came to her senses, even if I think the gesture she made was a little over the top :)

I also loved seeing the flashbacks to their childhood to see Nate and Ellie interact. The seeds were there from the start, and it was so cute to see inside Nate's head when he was trying to to look at his best friend's sister that way.

As you can tell, I loved this book and I CANNOT wait for the next one. I received an ARC for an honest review.

5.0 out of 5 stars Overall this was a great read and I can't wait to see who the next book will be about! Feb. 22 2016
By N. Royalton, OH Mom - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I'm usually a little worried when two authors write a book together....will their styles flow, will they both have the same passion, etc...

I have read everything that Carly Phillips' has released but I have never read anything by Lauren Hawkeye. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. Only a few times during reading I would think "This is definitely Carly's writing." but for most of the story I couldn't tell and I was really glad about that.

This story is Nate Archer's. Nate grew up with a bad family life and a stepfather that always beat him, but somehow he became a very successful hotel tycoon. Since childhood, Nate was best friends with Chase, Lucas and Gavin. At 16 years old the guys took an oath to never get married and that was fine with Nate. He was the kid who's parents didn't want him hanging around because of his bad family life. Nate always had a crush on Chase's younger sister, Ellie, but he would never pursue anything with her because of who he was.

Nate was called a player even back in school and continued this type of life well into adulthood. Flash forward 15 years later and Chase is getting married. Nate is not looking forward to going back home to Ruby Lake for the wedding because he is sure he will see Ellie, and now that she is all grown up he is not sure he will be able to leave his hands off of her.

Ellie Marshall was always the good girl, who did whatever she was told. She went to college and became an Optometrist. Ellie was nervous coming back home for her brother's wedding because she knew she would see Nate, the guy she always had the biggest crush on. And now that her boyfriend just broke up with her through a text of all things, she was looking for a weekend she wouldn't forget. ;)

Through no fault of their own, Ellie and Nate end up having to share the same motel room. Well you can imagine how this is going to work out! You have two people who both have sizzling feelings for each other but they both know that they shouldn't be together. Too bad life has a way of changing things!

I loved the journey these two went on. It was fun, flirty and really sexy. These two characters both filled a need each other needed. Their sexual chemistry was just off the charts! WOW!!!!

I loved the happy ending, it was great! I even enjoyed Nate confronting his past. Very emotional and heartfelt. Overall this was a great read and I can't wait to see who the next book will be about!

I loved this book! I assumed it was just another alpha-male-dominant romance, but I was pleasantly surprised. Nate may be strong and tough, and he's definitely got a rep of being a playboy, but his insecurities make him seem like a real person. I just wanted to give him a hug. Well, maybe not JUST a hug.😊 I'm a lifelong Carly fan, and I'm for sure looking for Lauren's next book if this one was any indication of how she writes!

4.0 out of 5 stars Never say Never..... Feb. 22 2016
By julie - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I am always a little cautious when one of my favorite authors co-writes with someone else, however I can honestly say that I was not disappointed at all with this writing collaboration. I have never read a book by Lauren Hawkeye, but if this is an example of her work, she has a new fan. I loved this story! Was it predictable? yes Was I bored? NO Did I like the characters? YES
This story pulled me in from the start with the interaction of a young Ellie and Nate. My heart immediately felt for Nate and wanted him to have his HEA. The sex was hot but this time it did not get in the way of the growing feelings of Ellie and Nate and because we get to see the young versions of the characters interacting nothing about the grown-up interactions seem rushed or ridiculous. I can't wait to see what happens with the other two guys!!! Grab this one- a fun read with plenty of heart.
5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic start to a new series! Can't wait for more! Feb. 29 2016

Never Say Love by Carly Phillips and Lauren Hawkeye gripped me from the start and did not let go. I found myself emotionally connected to this story and burned through the pages wanting to find what would happen next. Though this is the first book in a series, it tells a complete story.

In this story you meet Nathan Archer, a self-made man who knows what he wants and won't settle for less. This includes his best friend's sister, Eleanor Marshall. Nate has vowed to live his life with no committments and never settle down, but after reconnecting with Ellie from his past, he just might be singing to a different tune.

This book is filled with strong characters, sizzling chemistry and a great story. I am a fan of both Carly and Lauren 's and I am happy to say they did not let me down. I can't wait for more from these fantastically talented authors!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book; amazing collaboration! Feb. 23 2016

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I should only post one word about this book: HAWT! But then I’d leave out amazing, deeply touching, gut-wrenching, wonderful story. Hawt works, though! The story is about Nathan Archer and Eleanor Marshall and their journey towards their HEA. Ms. Phillips and Ms. Hawleye created a story that I hope continues with other characters we’ve met. Nathan’s story will touch you in ways that you cannot imagine. My heart broke for the boy that he was, the young man who endured, and the man who was still struggling with his past. And Eleanor is little sister to one of Nathan’s best friends and according to the “bro code”, she is off limits. Of course they fight their attraction to one another – even when they are young – however what they learn is that together, they are stronger. There is so much depth to this story. I cannot say enough about these two to make you buy this book. Reading about Nathan’s and Eleanor’s hard and well-traveled road will make you smile, tear up, cheer, and want to slap some folks silly. Really great read and I highly recommend.
