Just when she had finally moved on…
…He moved back.
When college freshman Liz Wagner hears her ex's voice for the first time since he moved clear across the freaking country, she does what any respectable girl would do: Dive into the girls' bathroom.
Zach Roberts—the Zach Roberts—is back. And he’s everywhere Liz looks—infiltrating her friend group, buddy-buddy with her brother. It’s enough to ruin college altogether. But what choice does she have but to put on a happy face and pretend he didn't leave her vulnerable and alone in a pile of emotional wreckage?
Pretending works, until tragedy strikes and the only person available for comfort is the one person she wants to stay away from. When Zach turns out not to be the jerk she convinced herself he was, but the boy she used to love, Liz needs to decide whether to open her heart again to the boy who tore it out.

Not for me.
Unfortunately, (Never) Again was just not for me.
The synopsis was intriguing and had me looking forward to reading this book. I love New Adult, but as I kept reading I kept thinking it felt more like a Young Adult instead. Really young, Young Adult. The immaturity of the characters was irritating. Mostly, Liz and her indecisive monologue and actions. Sure, some immaturity at that age is expected, but Liz really bugged me.
Zach seemed like the perfect hero. Kind, caring, and loving. Not to mention good looking. He leaves town without so much as a good-bye to his girlfriend, Liz. But once I read the reason why he left, I was rolling my eyes. Why couldn’t he tell her? Write. Call. Or when he came back into town. I didn’t get it.
And that leads to the last reason why I couldn’t quite connect with this book and the characters. The lack of strong conflict. Zach’s reason for leaving was the only thing that kept them apart. Sure, Liz had another boyfriend, but it was made clear throughout the book that they had no feelings for each other.
Overall, it was just too immature for my taste.
This book was so good! It was a little slow at first, but as soon as the "tragedy" strikes, I was in the edge of my seat the whole rest of the book!!! I definitely recommend it!!!
