It's her mouth-that infuriating, unbecoming mouth of hers that I can't Goddamn stand. Miss Bell twists words around, manipulating them to be suit her needs. She provokes me. Purposely. It sets my blood on fire. I can't stand to be around her, and yet I can't damn well think straight when she's gone. And those sassy lips-Christ, I can't very well behave like a captain when she licks them, giving me the once over. Bloody hell. She'll be my undoing. I know it. She knows it and doesn't deny it either.
The cheeky bastard. I know better than to fall for men like him-a captain with wildly inappropriate intentions at best. But I can't help myself. Created from evil, I lure abhorrent men to Neverland, an island prison. And Captain James is as corrupt as pirates come. Yet, even as possessive, ruthless and dangerous as he proves time and again, I can't imprison him. He's awakened a desire in me-a desire untameable as the Seven Seas. What we have is dark, addictive and as flawed as each other, but being with him is the greatest adventure I've ever experienced. For once, I have a future worth fighting for and then a pathetic boy from my past strolls back into my life, threatening to destroy our twisted, perfect life.

Let me start out saying if you love fantasy this book is for you. Sarah Pepper has taken Peter Pan's story of Neverland and expanded it to include dark and light elements. Its starts out in the present day with a mutiny occurring on the Jolly Roger between Captain James and his crew spurred on my Peter. Peter wants to return to Neverland, but Bell won't show him the way. Captain James wants to save Bell and Bell wants to save Captain James as they have fallen for each other. Alias, tragedy strikes Captain James and Bell must make a run for it. But, before she does black magic comes into play to help her escape. Peter is downright evil and will stop at nothing to get what he wants from Bell. Does Bell help Peter back to Neverland or can she outwit him? The adventure is non-stop and kept me wondering what was going to happen next to Bell. I loved how Sarah wrote in dual POV and gave me glimpses from the past to the present. This is book one of the Never Ever Series and I for one can't wait until book 2.
What an interesting twist on a classic fairy tale.. I love it! I want to read more of Ms. Pepper's fairy tales! She held me mesmerized from the beginning, spinning me into an alternative universe of which I have never known. The Author uses such detail, with such depth, that it is easy to picture myself in her world, in amongst these characters. This is a quick read, that leaves you hungry for more. Ms. Pepper, I am ready (for more), when you are!!
