Blog Tour + Review | The Way to Never by O. E. Boroni

The Way to Never
By O. E. Boroni
Published July 25, 2015

*I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review, but this ndoes not affect my opinion of the book in ANY way.*

When falling out of love, refuses to become an option… 

Nathan Roque first met Lenora Baker, a beautiful, exasperating, and bitter girl when she was just fifteen years old. He fell so deeply in love with her that he suspected that in his lifetime, nothing else could ever mirror the kind of commitment that she drew out of him. But she is left heartbroken when an unfortunate incident drives them apart. 

Thirteen years later, he sets out to reach out to her when he can no longer resist the consuming thoughts of her that have haunted him for so long. However, the same demons that caused him to let go of her in the first place are still holding him back. But when he is thrust into a situation where he has no choice but to become professionally involved with her, a Pandora’s Box of angst, resentment, and passion is unleashed. 

Now they are forced to make the decision on how to proceed. But will it justify the one that they made in the past, or will it mock it? 

About the Author

I currently live in England. My days are spent in the Project Management field while my nights are spent with books. I'm either reading them or writing the ones that I want to read. My favorite things and in this particular order are books, Korean dramas, ice cream, and people who smile through everything. I consistently tell people that these are the four things they need to be happy but do they believe me? No! Well I believe me, and you should too.

Have you ever read a book and realized that you would do many unrepeatable things to get the sequel? The Beginning of Never was one of those books for me. The story ended with a cliffhanger that tore my heart into a million different pieces and I really needed a sequel in order to put it back together. And The Way to Never did an amazing job of repairing my heart.

This book is set about 11 years after The Beginning of Never. At first, I was not sold on the idea of seeing the characters as adults, but by the end, I was absolutely loving it. Even though there is a vast age difference from the first book, you still know without a doubt that these are the characters that you know and love. 

For of all, I got all of the closure that I ever needed. I learned so much more about the characters than I would have ever imagined from the first book. One of the most telling things about a person, and a character, is how they grow up. And you get the whole story of growing up and finding themselves. 

I was kind of disappointed with the unrealistic ways that Nora and Nick both ended up extremely (like would not happen in the real world extreme) successful and relatively famous. I do not believe that the odds of them both growing up to be that amazing is highly improbable. 

I also think that some of the plot points are a little overdone, but I will forgive that because the characters drive this story, not the plot. I would be happy just reading a whole book of dialogue between these characters. Honestly, they are that interesting, funny, and dynamic. 

I am extremely lucky that I was able to read this sequel and finally get the closure that I craved. I would definitely recommend this series to anyone who loves forbidden romance, swoony romance, or just romance in general.
