Never Say Never(Never Knights #1) by Kailin Gow

Yes! Another blog tour with Kailin Gow. Awesome, right? :)
What girl wouldn't want to be surrounded by the sexy guys from the hottest teen rock sensation in the country?  18-year-old Never "Neve" Knight, not only is surrounded by the hottest boys to hit the music charts, but she is the band's lead singer. As the band's lead singer and manager, Never formed and shaped the band to where it is today, a band on the rise and on the brink of being signed by a label. As one of the guys, she knew each of the band members since they were all snot-nose ten-year-olds. While her boys were the cutest guys and they would protect her like knights, she couldn't date any one of them and ruin the chance at being signed with the record label of her dreams.

That changes when one of the band members suddenly drops out of the band, and in walks Danny Blue, with his dreamy blue eyes, hot body, and British accent. Suddenly, Never's solid world has turned to mush, and her rule for not dating one of her band members is seriously challenged. Can she keep her head straight and get her band signed with a label without losing her heart?

My Thoughts/Review:

I really liked this one. I think it's the best that Miss Gow has ever cranked out, and I'm honored to be a part of the blog tour. Yes, I am a part of the blog tour, and this is why I'm reviewing this. Not because of the controversial cover, I swear. Well, maybe because of the cover. ;)

To be honest, when I started this book I knew that I was going to love it. The atmosphere got to me immediately, and the idea of band that's fronted by a girl was just too much. There was absolutely, positively, no way that I wasn't going to like this.

I found the dynamics of the band to be good, and that I could imagine all of these things happening, as opposed to "other" books where you just can't see it happening. There was a few moments where I didn't understand it. For one, how many bands do you know of that every boy (except one) in the band has fallen in love with the girl lead? How many? Doesn't it seem improbable?

Yes, it does. But it was written out to be different than that, to a point. I found it to be believable, but I thought four people falling in love with her in one book was a little much. It didn't kill the story, but it was a little much.

Never was a terrific character. She was strong, and independent, and she wasn't afraid to go after exactly what she wanted. She wanted to be a star, without living off Daddy's name, and his money. I admire that in her, and I understand her reasons. Who wants to live their life, being supported by their dad? It seems like it would get old.

The other characters definitely had their moments too. Kyle and Danny especially. Danny and Kyle both seem pretty intense to me though.

This book was controversial, heartbreaking, a bit sexy, and most of all, it communicated exactly what Miss Kailin wanted it to: Your body is a temple, treat it likewise.

Favorite Quote:
The pain in my chest didn't matter. All I could feel was the overwhelming joy of having succeeded at last--the way I'd always wanted to. My music had touched somebody.
