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?
In the final installment of this series Charlie and Silas have yet again lost their memories but this time something different happened, Silas didn't lose his memories only Charlie did. This was confusing as to why he remembers meanwhile Charlie doesn't. Even though Silas remembers he kept it to himself and didn't tell Charlie. On this last part, they are not separated from each other, they are actually facing this situation together.

We start by Charlie and Silas in a hotel post-memory loss mode again. Now, they are more prepared than ever to face this situation. Their notes are updated and they have brought every little piece of information they might need to help them understand the bizarre memory loss mode they keep having. In this part we find out a little more about Charlie's family because in this part both Charlie and Silas must seek answers from Charlie's father in prison. Besides that, now they also have allies, Charlie's sister and Silas' brother.

It is very hard for Silas to keep his secret, which is the fact that he didn't lose his memories to himself. There were a few times he slipped up and Charlie noticed, this suspicion led to Charlie questioning Silas on whether or not he remembers what happened in the previous days before losing her memories. Silas then fessed up and admitted that he didn't lose his memories. At first, both of them were confused as to why only Silas remembers and she doesn't. Silas then remembered that in the last few seconds before the time they're supposed to lose his memories he felt comfortable in that moment with Charlie to the point that he started feeling the love he once had for Charlie and he couldn't imagine a life without her. This was the time they realized that what if they're actually each other's soulmates and that falling out of love is what made them lose their memories.

Thus, they've concluded that Charlie must fall in love with Silas all over again before the next time their memory loss term comes. It is Silas' mission to make sure that Charlie falls in love with him or she will lose her memories again.
“The only thing I have room for in this head of mine right now is the firm belief that fate absolutely exists. Fate…soul mates…time travel…you name it. It all exists. Because that’s what her kiss feels like. Existence.”
Well, I've finished it. All of my questions are answered plus a little additional twists here and there, thank you Colleen Hoover and Tarryn Fisher for introducing me to Silas and Charlie. I'll admit it took me too long to finish this trilogy since all of them weren't that thick in length but I just kept on reading other books. This was kind of an in the middle book for me to rate, I was going to give this book 3 stars because it was kind of underwhelming compared to its predecessors, also because even though all of my questions are answered the conclusion weren't that amazeballs it was kind of ordinary (I was expecting some gasping moments when reading this book, but it didn't happen). In the end I decided to add another star because I really loved the scenes where Silas attempts to make Charlie to fall in love with him again, those were just too damn sweet.
“Adults like to pretend that our feelings aren’t as big and important as theirs—that we’re too young to really know what we want. But I think what we want is similar to what they want. We want to find someone who believes in us. Who will take our side and make us feel less lonely.”
“I could spend every day getting to know you all over again, Charlie, and I don’t think I’d get sick of it.” 
“Trust your gut. Not your heart, because it’s a people pleaser, and not your brain, because it relies too heavily on logic.”
The things that I love are mostly the same as in the previous books of this series, which were the characters, especially Silas and Charlie. I love how Silas is just they type of too good to be true kind of guy and I love Charlie's snarky comments and her humor. I also love the writing, how Colleen and Tarryn (yes, I'd like to think we are on a first name basis now) switched between Silas' and Charlie's pov and how as a reader I was never confused as to whose perspective I was reading. Also, how smooth and easy to read the writing was.

In terms of conclusion to the questions left in the previous books, I was a little disappointed because it was just plain ordinary for me. The answers didn't make me shocked but Colleen and Tarryn added another twist in this part that answered why Charlie was kidnapped in the second book (this was shocking to me). Meanwhile that part shocked me other revelations were just "meh".

I'm so proud of myself for finishing a series, I haven't done that in a while since the last series I've finished were Divergent and The Hunger Games series. All and all, I think everyone should give this book series a shot!

That's it for now!
