REVIEW: Never Have I Ever by August Clearwing

"Astrophysicist-in-training Piper Minogue has a lot of control over her day-to-day life. Between completing a Master’s degree at Caltech and beginning her fruitful career at a local observatory she has little time for socializing. Until she attends one specific party that is. There, Piper is introduced to a drinking game called Never Have I Ever, and she finds herself admitting to a secret fantasy which challenges her friends’ views of her otherwise prudish nature. Her confession piques the interest of one man in particular, Noah; a handsome stranger with a darkly boyish charm. The resulting spiral of rapture and torture that follows is threatened by the demons of both their pasts. Piper's inability to give her heart to anyone, and Noah's guilt over the death of his former lover claw to the surface to tear Piper away from not only the one man who has ever made her feel like she does not have to be in control of her desires, but also the newly collected list of Nevers they both want to turn into reality. *Contains strong BDSM themes*"

~ Review ~

All I was hoping for was a good erotic read when I started this. Holy WOW did I love this story so much!  It does have strong BDSM themes and they are not candy coated as some other books might portray them.  They are gritty and rough but I never once felt that the Dom/sub relationship was abusive or humiliating.
"There's this- this brilliant fire, like the heart of a newborn star, blazing away in you.  No ordinary person can utilize that power even if they could imagine it."   ~ Noah
The characters were great. Piper is literally a genius but wants someone to control her in the bedroom. She's a self proclaimed nerd, but I think she's super cool. She was never annoying and never afraid to speak her mind. Noah is a hot Alpha make with just the right sweetness ;). The perfect combo for me! 
"I never imagined a kiss could hurt.  This one did.  And it was the very best kiss of my entire life" 
~ Piper
  Yes this story was a  lot about sex and a Dom/sub relationship but you also got so much more.  Enter, a trip around the world, Ethan, a dead ex submissive and the explosive last 30% of this novel! I was so excited to stumble upon this and can't wait to tell all of my porn reading friends about it!!! I should also mention that August Clearwing's writing was sharp and the plot's twist and turns made me never want to put the book down. I want to make my own list of 'Nevers' now and get started!!!
