Never Have I Ever By: August Clearwing
Astrophysicist-in-training Piper Minogue has a lot of control over her day-to-day life. Between completing a Master’s degree at Caltech and beginning her fruitful career at a local observatory she has little time for socializing. Until she attends one specific party that is.
There, Piper is introduced to a drinking game called Never Have I Ever, and she finds herself admitting to a secret fantasy which challenges her friends’ views of her otherwise prudish nature. Her confession piques the interest of one man in particular, Noah; a handsome stranger with a darkly boyish charm.
The resulting spiral of rapture and torture that follows is threatened by the demons of both their pasts. Piper's inability to give her heart to anyone, and Noah's guilt over the death of his former lover claw to the surface to tear Piper away from not only the one man who has ever made her feel like she does not have to be in control of her desires, but also the newly collected list of Nevers they both want to turn into reality.
Seriously is one of the best books I've read in a long time.
Great story about a girl coming into her passion for submission.
Piper has some dark fantasies that get let out at a party one night after too many drinks. Most people are shocked by her confession, except for Noah, is is more interested in fulfilling them.
Piper and Noah make arrangements to fulfill these fantasies and their attraction for each other grows from there. Piper finds that she is more in to submission and very good at it. Noah is the perfect Dom for her.
Some people might not like the extent some of the scenes took, but I think it fit so well with the story line. It never faltered and it kept you on edge. I couldn't put this book down, literally. Wish there was more books with it, but at the same time, I'm happy it's just a stand alone book. I am now officially a fan of August Clearwing!
