Twenty-nine-year-old Blair Walker is a girl with a plan, or more a girl with a list. A list of dos and don'ts to live the perfect life, land a dream career, and marry Mr. Right.

When Blair loses her job and gets dumped by her boyfriend all in one day, she starts to wonder if she's had it all wrong. And what better way to find out than experience everything the list forbade?
Never Lie
Never Pick a Fight
Never Make a Scene
Never Make the First Move
Never Make Impulse Decisions
Never Mix Business and Pleasure...

With hilarious consequences, Blair will discover some items are trickier to tick off than she'd thought...

My smile didn't leave my face for the entirety of I Have Never, which is essentially Blair Walker attempting to do the opposite of all the rules she has lived behind for her life. However after one disastrous day where Blair loses both boyfriend and job, she starts to think she may need to change her life philosophies. 

What follows is hilarious, especially the scene when she wakes up the next morning after her awful day.  Every chapter is subtitles with a different item from Blair's list which is the item being illustrated or directly opposed in that chapter. 

In amongst the book you will encounter an incredibly intelligent dog, that seems to understand human english far too well. There is an epic break up scene, a scene full of sexual tension, a plot line that shows how savvy Blair can be when she puts her mind to it,  plus a whole lot more. 

This may be the second book in the First Comes Love series, but it can easily be read as a standalone. I can safely say this as I didn't even realise how this was connected to the first book (which I read around its release), to this one, until I read the note from the author at the end of the book! 

This is a sparkling, fun, quick and easy to read story that I enjoyed every moment of. 

Thank you so much to Camilla Isley for this copy which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.
