Book Review - I Have Never by Camilla Isley


Book review

Blair expects to have the most perfect day ever. She thinks she'll get the promotion she's been waiting for for a long time and is sure her boyfriend will propose to her at dinner. Instead of opening a bottle of champagne Blair is being fired and her boyfriend becomes her cheating ex. Blair is devastated and goes to a bar where she does something she has never ever done before, she gets drunk. The morning after she wakes up in a strange apartment. This apartment belongs to Richard, who's also going to be her new boss. Blair can't stop thinking about the gorgeous man who should wear an 'I'm too hot' warning sign. Her new co-workers say that Richard is damaged goods and that he's avoiding any kind of commitment. What made him so reluctant to settle down? Will Blair risk everything she's ever had for a dream?

Even though she has to start from scratch at her new job, Blair settles in quickly. She's good at what she does and I loved her creative ideas. She knows how to get things done and she is hilarious. Blair's internal dialogue made me laugh out loud many times. Blair made a list with things she would never do and has been taught to always be a lady. After her boyfriend's betrayal Blair changes her ways, learns to let go and finally begins doing things her way. Blair has a kind heart. She sees the goodness in people and listens to her intuition. I connected with Blair straight away because of her easygoing character. She can be feisty and now that her rules have been thrown away her 'never have I ever' list will become much shorter, which was a lot of fun for me to read about. 

I Have Never is a hilarious love story about doing things for the first time. Camilla Isley has a very distinctive writing style and I love the fact that I can instantly recognize her female main characters due to the amazing character traits they all have in common. Camilla Isley has a great sense of humor and I had tears in my eyes from laughing. Because of the easy to follow story line I flew through the pages and finished I Have Never in one sitting. I loved to read about Blair's job and the things she does are all interesting. Camilla Isley is an experienced and skillful writer and she has written another brilliant story that I highly recommend.

Advice

If you like bubbly feelgood love stories I Have Never will probably make you laugh just as hard as it made me.


Camilla is an engineer turned writer after she quit her job to follow her husband in an adventure abroad. She’s a cat lover, coffee addict, and shoe hoarder. Besides writing, she loves reading—duh!—cooking, watching bad TV, and going to the movies—popcorn, please. She’s a bit of a foodie, nothing too serious. A keen traveler, Camilla knows mosquitoes play a role in the ecosystem, and she doesn’t want to starve all those frog princes out there, but she could really live without them.

  18. Not usually my type of book but I'm all for funny/sarcastic characters, and from your review it looks like they can be found here, so maybe I'll change my mind.
