Series: Never Never #3

New York Times bestselling authors Colleen Hoover and Tarryn Fisher are back with the much-anticipated final installment in the Never Never novella series.
Together, Silas Nash and Charlize Wynwood must look deeper into the past to find out who they were and who they want to be. With time ticking down, the couple are in a race to find the answers they need before they lose everything. Can they regain what they once had? And will it restore who they once were?
After a disappointing book two I’m happy to say things are back on track with the quality of storytelling. For one thing, this time around Charlie is actually in the book full-time – not as a guest star. The mystery of Silas and Charlie’s recurring memory loss is just as intriguing as ever, and while I still consider it to be a page-turner, the story unfolds at a more languid pace. It’s a welcome break from the Xanax inducing tension in the previous two books. The developing relationship between this version of Silas and Charlie is fun and sweet. I’ve liked Silas from the beginning, and I really adore him in this book.
My problem is the ending. Conflicts between certain characters get resolved too quickly, and unless you’re keen on fairytales, the cause and solution is rather anticlimactic and sappy. It’s pretty much what I’d expect from a young adult novel. In addition, some questions remain unanswered to my satisfaction. There’s an epilogue, but honestly I would have enjoyed the entire book more if I hadn’t read it. It’s an eye roll worthy addendum that diminishes what started out to be a fascinating mystery.
