Bound by a vow with his friends, hotel tycoon Nathan Archer refuses to settle down and tie the knot. His only commitment is to bachelorhood. Granted, that contract was made when he was 15 years old … and in a treehouse. Still, a promise is a promise. And Nate takes his promises seriously.
But when cute little Eleanor Marshall walks back into his life, this blast from the past is no longer the timid little girl he used to know. When Ellie decides to soothe her bruised ego with one night of hot sex, Nate decides he’s the only man for the job. He’s wanted Ellie forever and it’s only one night.
But Nate is never going to settle down.
Never say never...

I've been a fan of Carly Phillips for years and was super excited to read her newest book written with Lauren Hawkeye. I absolutely love the chance to get more and more books each year from favorite authors as they team up with other authors for new stories. I am adding to my to-be-read list with each new to me author. I have to say that Never Say Love was an absolutely amazing start to a new series from Carly Phillips and Lauren Hawkeye.
Never Say Love is Nate and Ellie's story. I love they knew each other when they were growing up and are insanely attracted to each other once they see each other again. The fact that Ellie had a crush on Nate when they were kids and Nate is her brother’s best friend only made me love this story even more.
I adored Nate and Ellie were attracted to one another from the moment they saw each other again. I laughed so hard that they ended up sharing a room when they both came back to their hometown for Ellie’s brother’s wedding. In fact the banter between Ellie and Nate was every bit as fun as the sexy chemistry between them.
I have to say the chemistry was off the charts H-O-T between Nate and Ellie. I loved that Nate tried to fight his attraction to Ellie thanks to the bro-code, but I just knew the attraction between them was way to intense for them to keep their hands to themselves for long.
I seriously loved how strong the attraction was between Nate an Ellie. I loved that Nate tried to fight how much he wanted Ellie and that they both saw what the other needed in each other. Loved that Nate had a need to dominate when they were in the bedroom and while Ellie questioned why she allowed it and got off on it, gave over the control to Nate and each time they were together only got hotter and brought them closer together.
Of course past insecurities come to play and almost broke my heart to watch both Nate and Ellie battle their past. I do wish the authors had addressed the issues a bit more at the end of the story, but still loved the story. I loved especially that Ellie went the extra mile to prove her love to Nate as no one had really ever gone to bat for him in the past.
I adored Never Say Love and really can’t wait to see who gets the next book in the series. Never Say Love was a fabulous friends-to-lovers romance filled with both funny and super intense moments.
