Almost Never by: Melissa Toppen - Release Blitz w/Review

Title: Almost Never

Author: Melissa Toppen

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date: May 1, 2020

Alec Murray. He was the one. From the first moment I saw him, I knew. I had never been more certain of anything in my sixteen years on this earth. But Alec didn’t notice me. At least not in the way that I wanted him to.

He noticed my best friend instead. I stood by and watched their relationship blossom. An outsider looking in, wishing things were different. Torn between my loyalty to my best friend and the boy who had unknowingly stolen my heart. Weighted by feelings I could never express out loud, I wrote them all down.

Every thought. Every feeling. I poured them all into a letter. A letter he was never meant to read. Only that’s exactly what he did. He read it. Every single word. But by then it was too late. Even if he was no longer dating my best friend. Even if I was more in love with him than ever. He was leaving. I was leaving. And there was nothing either of us could do to change it.

Alec Murray was my almost fairytale. The happy ending I swore I’d never get. But our story is far from over…


This book has all the feels!!! It's almost sad in its wonderful love story. We start with them in High School and follow them thru their time right after college. 

Alec and Hope are amazing. They are very mature characters almost right from the beginning. Both are driven and focused and both have dreams and things they want to accomplish. Those will take some time. College. Moving. Starting careers. What will happen to their friendship?

Adding to this the fact that he chose her BFF. They were in a relationship and the best friend still has feelings for him. Even if they are aren't mutual, they are best friends and that code can't be broken.

I had mixed feelings with that part of the book. It had been years and she still beat herself up over it. But it's their love story and it's amazing. I loved the fast paced nature, the characters and the writing is excellent!!

Highly Recommend!!!
