Fantastic addition to the Walker Family Series. Logan and Amelia's story pulls you in from the very first page! They both are challenged to "do something new".

: I've officially joined the Logan Walker Fan Club! Talk about a swoon-worthy hero. After seeing the author gush about him all over social media, it was great to finally get to know Logan. I've been looking forward to this story from the moment I finished reading the previous book. Like Never Before had everything I've come to expect from Melissa Tagg: the meet-cute, where the hero and heroine meet under entertaining circumstances, plenty of classic movie references, loads of romance, charming heroes that melt your heart and a quaint setting that makes you feel right at home. This book tugged at my heartstrings one moment and made me laugh the next. It was an absolute joy to read! Amelia is such a fun character. From the way she's crushing on Logan and reading all the speeches he writes to her devotion to Maple Valley, despite having only lived there a few years, her passion comes off the page in a way you can feel. I love her obsession with Amelia Earhart and Charles Lindberg. Logan is full of conflict. He's trying to take care of his daughter, Charlie, but his former in-laws don't think he's good enough. Amelia's trying to persuade him to come back and write for the paper and his business partner is depending on him to secure the job with the presidential candidate. Logan goes through a gauntlet of emotion and rough times, but through it all, he shows his strength, loyalty and dependability.

Recommendation: I would highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys classic romantic comedies. I really enjoy the classic movie references she throws into the story. Like Never Before is the second book in the Walker Family Series, but it can stand alone. However, Melissa Tagg's stories are so good that you'll want to read them all.
