Series Sunday: Never

(Lassiter Sisters #1) 

Series Sunday is a bookish meme hosted by Literary Marie of Precision Revision. I encourage all of my fellow book bloggers and bookhearts to play along.
  • Read an installment of a series.
  • Share your review/recommendation below.
  • Include the title, author and series name.

"Don't let doubt dictate your happiness. You're a Lassiter woman. You come from a long line of strong, proud woman [sic]." ~ 89%

My Series Sunday pick is Never, the first book in the Lassiter Sisters series by Joy Avery. Gadiya Lassiter and her twin brother were inseparable. Until one day, they were not. Nico Dupree, the love of her life, was no longer around either. Fast forward two years and there is a new fire chief in town; Nico Dupree is back to reclaim Gadiya's heart. Too bad she vowed to never fall in love again.

Before I dive into my book review, take a look at the cover above. It is simple yet beautiful. I appreciate when authors/publishers choose a more subtle cover rather than elaborate images that distract from the book itself. Never is also public-friendly for readers who happen to leave the cover page visible on their eBook device. Kudos to Joy Avery and her team!

I can easily enjoy a story with unlikeable characters. Such is the case with Never. The stubborn main character, Gadiya, had me talking to the pages. "What you doing, girl?" But once I accepted the character's annoying flaw, I was able to read on and let the story flow.

"Black, sexy magic, an inner voice taunted." ~ 20%

Thanks to my bestie, Damey, for recommending this novella. She described it as "so adorable" and I agree. It is a very quick read that I finished in between house hopping for the holiday. Joy Avery definitely wet my book plate enough to want more of the Lassiter sisters. My fingers are crossed that books are in the making featuring Gadiya's sisters, Rana and Sadona Lassiter.

If you are looking to read the start of a new series, download Never. It is free with Kindle Unlimited program or buy it for only $2.99 on Amazon.
