About the Author
Camilla is an engineer turned writer after she quit her job to follow her husband in an adventure abroad. She’s a cat lover, coffee addict, and shoe hoarder. Besides writing, she loves reading—duh!—cooking, watching bad TV, and going to the movies—popcorn, please. She’s a bit of a foodie, nothing too serious. A keen traveler, Camilla knows mosquitoes play a role in the ecosystem, and she doesn’t want to starve all those frog princes out there, but she could really live without them.

Down on her luck she takes to the local bar, where after reading a list of 15 items she was told never to do, she decides it’s time to cross them off one by one, starting with ‘Never get Drunk’. The trouble is, she wakes up in a stranger’s apartment, a man who promises that they didn’t sleep together, but does offer her a job.
With no money to cover her half of the rent for the flat she shares with her best friend Nikki, she agrees to the job of ‘Beauty and Fashion Editor’ of an online magazine. The only problem is, her boss is quite hunky. Can she keep her hands to herself, and also get through the list of things that she should never do?
I have read a few Camilla Isley novels and all of them have been imaginative, exciting and laugh out loud. This one is just the same.
Blair is extremely likeable. She thinks that it is time to let her hair down and stop being so mature about everything. When she didn’t get the editorial job that she had been working towards for years, something in her just clicked and enough was enough. She has tried to live by a set of rules, but they have gotten her nowhere. Now it was time to break them.
Richard runs the online magazine. He is tall, handsome and rubs shoulders with celebrities. He is smitten with Blair, but after a past love affair went sour, he doesn’t date, just more of a one night stand sort of guy. At least he can’t get hurt that way, or so he thinks.
This book is pure chick-lit from beginning to end. I loved everything about it, from the perfect New York scenery, to the amazing characters that have a lot of depth to them. The writing is faultless and the plot, including the subplots, are most certainly intriguing.
Each chapter is dedicated to an item on Blair’s List. Each new chapter had me eager to discover just what she would do to cross that item off. Plus for those romantics out there, the ‘will-they-won’t-they’ love action is ever present for you to enjoy.
A light-hearted book that will hold you captive to the pages, and won’t let you go until the very last word.

Blair has always been the type of girl to stick to a list; her five-year plan if you will. As far as she's concerned the list is there to be abided by, not to go against. However, poor Blair seems to have picked the short straw as luck doesn't seem to be on her side, especially as in one day she lost her job AND her boyfriend. Eeesh!
Blair has the type of personality a lot of women would admire, I know I certainly did! She's sassy, feisty, knows her own mind yet has a heart of gold. The only thing that she struggles with is letting go. Until now.
Even though 'I Have Never' is the second book in the First Comes Love series, it can be read as a standalone. That said, the first book in the series is brilliant as well! May as well buy both then eh!
In all honesty, I don't think I read this book without a smile on my face. The entire storyline was written brilliantly, it's such a fun and uplifting novel, which, in my opinion, isn't the vibe you get from the book to begin with. As always, Camilla Isley's trademark humour oozes from the storyline AND the characters. I think I spent most of the time giggling at Richard's antics or the puppy's legendary communication skills.
For me, the best part of 'I Have Never' was the backwards bucket list - absolutely fantastic idea. Because of that, I was able to see Blair come out of her shell in a different way, it was as though she had learnt to find comfort within herself. Lovely to read.
I am having withdrawal symptoms already, I cannot WAIT for another Camilla Isley novel to be released. Such pocket-sized perfection, every single time. I LOVED this book, you will definitely be a numpty not to read this.
Thanks Camilla & Aimee B.
