Page Count: 384 pages
When their now famous ex-boyfriend asks them to participate in a teen reality show, two eighteen year old girls—one bent on revenge, the other open to rekindling romance—get tangled up in an unexpected twist when they fall for each other instead in Never Ever Getting Back Together by nationally and internationally-bestselling and Indie Next Pick author Sophie Gonzales.
It’s been two years since Maya’s ex-boyfriend cheated on her, and she still can’t escape him: his sister married the crown prince of a minor European country and he captured hearts as her charming younger brother. If the world only knew the real Jordy, the manipulative liar who broke Maya’s heart.
Skye Kaplan was always cautious with her heart until Jordy said all the right things and earned her trust. Now his face is all over the media and Skye is still wondering why he stopped calling.
When Maya and Skye are invited to star on the reality dating show Second-Chance Romance, they’re whisked away to a beautiful mansion—along with four more of Jordy’s exes— to compete for his affections while the whole world watches. Skye wonders if she and Jordy can recapture the spark she knows they had, but Maya has other plans: exposing Jordy and getting revenge. As they navigate the competition, Skye and Maya discover that their real happily ever after is nothing they could have scripted.
Never Ever Getting Back together is a fun read overall. I mean a reality tv dating show where the two women fall for each other instead of the ex??? Yes, please!
Add in getting revenge on the ex, it’s perfect for all the drama!!! Maya and Skye were cute together. It was fascinating to watch the behind the scenes of the dating show and I really loved that. Especially refilming reactions, out of context shots etc.
Oh how I hated Jordy!! And I needed the revenge plot! Why couldn’t we get both love and revenge.
I do think it would have worked better as an adult novel, because the concept of the show is to find “the one” and as the teen having dated more than 6 people.
Overall it was a fun and entertaining read!
