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.

A Delightful, Feel-Good Read!
A fabulous new take on romance which has made me smile all the way through!
Robyn Bloom has always lived in the family home and, likewise, the Barnes brothers are next-door. Friends since they were children she lost her heart to one of the twins, Ash, who then broke it sharply in two when he dumped her, ran away and took up with a much younger model. It’s taken a long time for Robyn and Will to get back to the easy friendship they once had; when Robyn sets up The Never Have I Ever Club to improve life for everyone in the village, they work together for the benefit of the community. Then Ash returns . . .
This is an absolutely charming tale! Having read this author’s books before, I expected to enjoy it and I was in for a real treat. With fabulously created characters whose friendships were both funny and realistic and with a spectacularly annoying mother, I have grinned and giggled throughout. Mary Jayne Baker writes with a light touch, keeping her readers entertained all the way through and I highly recommend this terrific book (as well as her previous ones). A delightful feel-good novel which fully earns all five sparkling stars!
