CM Stunich had me hooked from the beginning and absolutely delivered. This book was packed with emotion. Everything from addiction, redemption, love and the importance of safe sex and getting tested. Oh.my.gosh, this book was a great read! Stunich nailed it with Tasting Never! Definitely worth the purchase!

Holy shizkababs people. This book had the WOW FACTOR!

How CM Stunich did it I will never know. I had already done up my top 5 for 2012 and unfortunately for 1 of the 5 - Ms Stunich has knocked it off, kicked it out of the park and replaced it. Yes this book really was THAT good, and...without insta love. A relationship built from friendship and understanding that could only come from someone as tortured as the other.

I'm breaking , cracking, splitting. I had thought, at first, that Ty's voice could slither into my psyche and rip me apart, but now that he's sitting there across from me and speaking so softly that I can barely hear him, I know hat it isn't true, not entirely. He has that ability, sure. He has it because I'm attracted to him, like there's this magnetic force between us pulling us together and pushing us apart. He has it because I'm so sure that he could break me if he wanted to.

It had it all - a sad, angry young woman who used sex to feel whole and a tortured hottie that does that same. What do you get? Bang.Zing.Wham. A whole lot of honesty, emotion and the desire to love and be loved. The type of friendship that brings down walls, and opens eyes and hearts. I went through each page feeling each and every thought and emotion Never felt. All the way from her past to her present. I just couldn't put Never & Ty out of my mind. There were no trips to the bathroom, no eating and certainly no putting it down. The writing and the characters were both, in my opinion, wonderful.

Ty has changed me; Lacey has changed me; I'm changing myself. Just everything's changing, and I don't know how to deal. It's happening fast, too fast for me to follow. I don't like it. I don't feel in control now.

WOW!! I didn't expect to experience such an emotional response to Tasting Never.

C.M Stunich has written such a fabulous story that touched my heart and dug deep into my soul. I picked this book up thinking I would read a couple of chapters at a time, but I was so wrong. I couldn't put it down. I stayed up late because I just had to finish it. I am still trying to register all the different feelings that have surfaced since diving into Never and Ty's story. I honestly am having trouble putting into words how deeply moved I am with the journey these characters took me on. If you have ever experienced a time when you didn't know how to love or be loved, then you aren't alone. Never and Ty are both damaged and unable to feel a connection with someone of the opposite sex except for a series of unsatisfying flings. Never cries herself to sleep every night, feeling alone and empty. When Never and Ty meet, sparks fly and not in a good way. Fate steps in and throws them into a life changing situation. They form a difficult friendship that brings all their pain and struggles to the surface. Can they heal and learn to trust again?

"Sometimes, the only way to go forward, is to take a few, careful steps back."

I highly recommend Tasting Never. Be prepared to have your heart tugged at and your life altered. I am awaiting the sequel to continue on this emotionally charged journey through pain, anger, love, hate and maybe a bit of healing. Thank you C.M. Stunich for writing a story that reaches into the darkest parts of my soul and allows a bit more healing to take place.

"This book was painful to read and although it ends on a high note I'm expecting the next book to be just as painful. It's dark. Really really dark. The author put in just enough light to keep me going but I won't lie....I'm now in desperate need for something light and fluffy filled with bunnies and unicorns to offset the emotional trauma. Never and Ty are both so shattered that I'm not convinced there's enough superglue in the world to put them back together again. What I do know is that the author has me fully hooked and I will faithfully follow them on their journey while desperately hoping the author can help them find their HEA."

Tasting Never by CM Stunich was a surprising, uneasy story of wanting to be loved despite feeling that there is nothing that makes you lovable. This story drew me in from the beginning.
Never Ross is an interesting and quite flawed young woman. She has a gut wrenching secret that needs to come out. Her secret tortures her and she is broken, alone, scared and she buries it all in endless one night, meaningless sexual encounters. She abuses sex to bury her pain and to take away the feelings she has about being vulnerable and unlovable.
Then she meets Ty McCabe, who has his own skeletons in the closet. When he and Never meet, it is instant attraction but it is like two magnets with a force pushing and pulling each other. Ty McCabe is another tortured soul and finding one another helps them both learn that they can live beyond their secrets. Ty has his share of secrets and we get a glimpse into the darkness.
Circumstances change and they end up relying on each other and become friends who open up and share their darks secrets. This relationship allows them both to come out of the dark. Their story together is one of friendship, attraction and it is beautiful, painful, damaged and yet hopeful. They want to be better together.
Here's what I liked about this book: the story pulled me in right from the beginning, the characters have real issues and hot sex doesn't make everything perfect. The writing was good, with a well-developed, interesting and unique characters and story. Tasting Never is a dark, contemporary romance with characters, despite the ways of coping and their damaged pasts, are very likeable and I found myself connecting with them.
This novel was the first that I have read by CM Stunich and I truly enjoyed the emotional journey that was dark and hopeful. Tasting Never is the first in the Never say Never trilogy and I anxiously look forward to the second book to find out where the journey will take us. Give it a try! 4 Stars
