Always Never Yours - Emily Wibberley & Austin Siegemund-Broka
“Always Never Yours” didn’t seem like my type, however, I saw it as an e-book at my library’s Libby and thought I would give it a shot.
It took some time to get into it, as I usually go for mystery / thrillers…basically anything other than romance.
The story is about a young woman handling school, a social life, her life at home and her aspirations for her career.
The characters are great, no one was too obnoxious or too irritating. Everyone seemed real and relatable to a certain extent. I loved how Wibberley and Siegemund-Broka wrote the main character with rational feelings rather than just portraying her as this “boy-crazy” individual with no other qualities. It really shows a new side to that personality that most people dismiss.
Throughout the book, I felt myself getting disinterested in a lot of the family drama happening, and felt myself rush slightly through them to get to the school aspect of the book. Personally, I didn’t think the family side gave a lot to the story, having said so, the book would be much shorter without it, and the characters wouldn’t be 100% fleshed out, so who am I to complain?
Now listen. Some spoilers.
Only one fictional couple makes me giddy with excitement. And it’s Mulder and Scully.
So when Megan and Owen where giving me the same feelings. I was shook.
Those two made me ache for them to be together and I was rooting for them so much! I loved their dynamic from beginning to end.
Yes there has to be one. Was anyone else disappointed by the first bedroom scene?! I was hoping that she would stop things and say:
“But you have a girlfriend” and Owen would reply “I broke up with her” and they lived happily ever after.
I wasn’t expecting Owen to “forget” about his girlfriend and then proceed to insult Megan like everyone else does. That’s not the only way to protect your feelings!
Other than that, the book was such a nice light read and it kept me guessing and wanting me to read more, which is always a good thing.
My final rating is a 4.5/5 and I will definitely be checking out other books by the authors. I loved the characters and I loved the writing. Megan is a very interesting character, that knows how to express her emotions and thoughts. Throughout the book she showed that she had other interested other than guys and she really grew and matured as the book went on.
I hope you enjoyed reading!
