It’s been two years since Maya's ex-boyfriend cheated on her, and she still can’t escape him: his sister married the crown prince of a minor European country and he captured hearts as her charming younger brother. If the world only knew the real Jordy, the manipulative liar who broke Maya’s heart.

Skye Kaplan was always cautious with her heart until Jordy said all the right things and earned her trust. Now his face is all over the media and Skye is still wondering why he stopped calling.

When Maya and Skye are invited to star on the reality dating show Second-Chance Romance, they’re whisked away to a beautiful mansion—along with four more of Jordy’s exes—to compete for his affections while the whole world watches. Skye wonders if she and Jordy can recapture the spark she knows they had, but Maya has other plans: exposing Jordy and getting revenge. As they navigate the competition, Skye and Maya discover that their real happily ever after is nothing they could have scripted.


Praise for Never Ever Getting Back Together

"A hilariously charming mix of romance meets reality show."Paste Magazine

"Containing juicy secrets, sizzling chemistry, swoon-worthy reveals, and all the drama one could want, Gonzales's delightful rom-com will leave readers craving more."PopSugar

"Never Ever Getting Back Together is an absolute home run . . . the queer feel-good romcom of the year."The Nerd Daily

“Wickedly funny [and] searingly sexy . . . Gonzales has written an incisive reflection on the thin line between love and hate. Don’t let this one get away.”—Kelly Quindlen, author of She Drives Me Crazy

"A fun, fast-paced enemies-to-lovers romcom, full of banter and heart . . . queer love and teen girls you can’t help but cheer for. This book gets my final rose and all the ones before it."—Jenn Dugan, author of Some Girls Do

“As binge-worthy as your favorite Netflix series . . . a bitingly funny, warm, and wonderful knock-out of a romcom.”—Julia Lynn Rubin, author of Trouble Girls

"A light, escapist read."Kirkus Reviews

"Narrated in alternating points of view by two layered, complex characters, this fun YA romance is full of twists and turns, petty revenge schemes, and chaotic drama that rivals an actual reality show. If you enjoyed Netflix’s Do Revenge and are craving a bisexual season of The Bachelor, you absolutely must pick up this book."Booklist (starred review)

"Employing hilariously biting alternating perspectives and a cast populated by strongly characterized female heroines and deliciously despicable reality TV villains, Gonzales expertly taps into contemporary society’s Bachelor obsession to deliver a smart rom-com with a twist.”Publishers Weekly (starred review)

The guy next to me at the bar is grinning at me intimately, as though he knows all my secrets but likes me anyway. It’s a little unsettling, mostly because I’m damn sure I’ve never seen him before in my life, and...
