Whew! This is the first book that I have read by this author. I am pleasantly surprised that I stumbled upon this book. It was well written without a dull moment. I was hooked from the first paragraph. It kept me turning each page until the very end. Cheryl McIntyre did a great job in approaching a taboo subject. And although at moments I was cringing she did a very realistic view and did it with taste.

Mason is constantly on the move with his mother and little brother. After a tragic accident took his father away from them his mother has problems with staying in one place for too long. Because of this Mason goes through his days not connecting with anyone and only reaches out through sex and anger. He's always fighting for the underdog and is so sweet it just makes you melt.

Finding herself in a foster home after her mother was killed in a car accident, Hope, is just like a M&M. Hard outer shell but soft on the inside. After suffering through a neglectful childhood with her mother she looks down at herself and feels that she will never be good enough. She only allows a select few close but keeps everyone else at arms length. Always in fear that someone will see her how she sees herself and leave her behind. She hides behind her vices.. Playing drums, writing lyrics, uses anger to hide her hurt, and..... Worst vice of all.. (Hidden from everyone but 1 person)... Self harming.

On Masons first day of school he glimpses Hope. Immediately he feels as though he is drawn to her. As he walking towards her he's startled to see this firecracker in a confrontation with a much larger guy and then proceeds to kick his ass. Never feeling this connection before he is determined to meet her. Unfortunately for him because of the fight she is suspended from school.

Okay, so when I got this book, I wasn't expecting much. I read...a lot. Like nonstop. One click for Amazon was probably the best thing that ever happened to me, and I've come across so many bad books lately, I was starting to think I had exhausted the supply of good Kindle books.
Then I found Sometimes Never.
If I had one word to describe this book, it would be deep. That's it, the book was so gosh darn deep. The characters were flawed, and I'm not talking 'I'm perfect, but sometimes I lie, which makes me a bad person' flawed. I don't want to spoil anything, so I'm not gong to go too deep into it but it got kind of dark at times. It was strained, and you could honestly feel Hope's pain. I'm not going to say that you can relate to the characters, because I know I couldn't. Not because Cheryl didn't do an absolutely fantastic job of introducing us into Hope and Mason's world, but because some of the stuff Hope has gone through, not a lot of people can relate to.
Cheryl described the characters beautifully. You can picture Hope and Mason and Guy in your head. You can describe them like you know them personally, because she makes you feel like you do. The plot line, the characters, the premise...I can't even describe how great this book was.
It was dark, it was twisted, it was deep, and I am still amazed. The writing was almost poetic without verging into snooze territory.
I cried.
Multiple times.
And that doesn't happen to me, like ever.
I couldn't compare this to another book, because I haven't read a book quite like this before. Yes, it has the cliche 'girl has issues and doesn't trust boy' plot line, but it is so much more. I would recommend this book in a heartbeat, I really would.
I bought this book for $1.99, and honestly, I would have paid twice that.
Buy it, read it, love're welcome.

"Her milky white feet bounce up and down as she sways her legs to the beat of music I'm unable to hear. And I really wish I could hear it. To know what sound flows through her ears and makes her move like this."

Cheryl McIntyre has put a fresh spin on the good girl/rebellious bad boy theme. Hope is a product of the foster care system. Slightly battered, cautiously guarded, fiercely loyal, she has been bounced from home to home, following the death of her drug addicted mother- father no where in sight. She has found some semblance of stability in her current placement, and is especially close to Guy, as close to a brother as she will ever come. She has tremendous self esteem issues, and acts out in a particularly secretive harmful way. Mason, is the man of the house, having lost his father from a random act of violence. As much as he tries to keep it together for his mother and brother, he approaches life with detachment. He avoids relationships and long term commitments. His hard working mother copes with her loss by moving; picking up and moving her kids and forcing them to start schools and friendships over and over. Mason enjoys the company of girls, lots and lots of girls. And partying, lots of that too. When these two intersect, they are both attracted and repulsed by each other. Hope "ships" things, opposites, things that compliment and fill the void the other leaves.

"Pencil and eraser, ink pen and white-out, enter and back space keys. Something that can amend the mistakes of the other."

This sums up their relationship nicely. They fight, they attract and they love. And maybe they hate, and maybe they learn each other secrets and wonder how they can make it work, when everything seems to indicate it won't. Ms.
