Rebecca Reviews | The Never Have I Ever Club by Mary Jayne Baker

I was kindly sent a copy by Netgalley for the purpose of review. All thoughts and opinions are our own. This post contains affiliate links.

Sometimes you just need an easygoing read and this is exactly what I was thinking when I opted for this one. I couldn’t wait to see what it had in store for me. Why not pick up a copy for yourself here {affiliate link}?


Robyn Bloom thought Ash Barnes was the love of her life – until one day he announced he was leaving her to fly halfway across the world.

Months later, Robyn is struggling to move on – but then she has a brainwave: The Never Have I Ever Club. Her handsome next-door neighbour Will helps her bring their fellow Yorkshire villagers together for some carpe-diem-inspired fun.

From burlesque dancing to Swedish massages, everyone has plenty of bucket-list activities to try, but it doesn’t take long for Robyn to realise what – or who – her heart truly desires: Will.

There’s just one problem: he’s Ash’s twin brother.

Make that two problems: Ash is moving home… and he wants Robyn back.

My Review

With plenty of humour and fun within the book, this was a quick and easy read that I really enjoyed. I especially loved the character of Will – I thought he seemed like the perfect gent – although it did annoy me sometimes at just how much he sacrificed to keep other people happy.

Ash seemed misunderstood to me. Yes, he had made some bad decisions but at the end of the book, you see that it didn’t really matter after all when the main characters all come to a particular realisation.

Aunt Fliss was one of my favourite characters, she sounded so wonderful and a great person for Robyn to have in her life – in stark contrast to her quite frankly annoying and overbearing mother.

I especially loved the idea of the Never Have I Ever Club – it brought together a variety of characters that otherwise wouldn’t spend time with her and gave them the opportunity to try something they never had before.

I’ll certainly be reading more from this author if they are all like this.

I gave this book 4 out of 5 stars.
