Reviewed by Kylie Buckley

Eighteen-year-old Maya is invited to participate in a debut TV reality show called ‘Second Chance Romance’. Her ex-boyfriend Jordy is now in the public eye because his sister married into royalty. Jordy claims that girls now just use him for his fame and he is not sure who is genuine anymore. As a result, he agrees to be the first bachelor on the dating show aimed at rekindling one of his previous romances. Six ex-girlfriends, who dated him before his fame, agree to be contestants. Some of the girls are vying for his heart again and others, like Maya, are there with a vastly different agenda. After Jordy cheated on Maya, with a girl named Skye, he denied it to everyone. Maya’s plan is to now seek revenge…publicly!

Never Ever Getting Back Together is a young adult romantic comedy about relationships, integrity, love, and queer romance. It is written with alternating narration from both Maya and Skye’s perspectives. Never Ever Getting Back Together is recommended for an audience aged 15 years and older.
