BOOK ONE in The EVER Trilogy
Seventeen-year-old Ever’s love life has been on hold for the past two years. She’s secretly in love with her best friend Frankie, and he’s completely oblivious.
Of course, it doesn't help that he’s dead, and waking up to his ghost every day has made moving on nearly impossible.
Frustrated and desperate for something real, Ever finds herself falling for her hot new neighbor Toby. His relaxed confidence is irresistible, and not just Ever knows it. But falling for Toby comes with a price that throws Ever’s life into a whirlwind of chaos and drama. More than hearts are on the line, and more than Ever will suffer.
Some girls lose their hearts to love.
Some girls lose their minds.
Ever Van Ruysdael could lose her soul
This was definitely an interesting read because I didn't know where the author was going to go with it and its always fun to go on an adventure that can lead you anywhere.
We meet Ever who loves the color black, lives with her patents and its home schooled because two years ago she was in a car accident where she lost the love of her life. But she never really lost him because he's a ghost and lives in her house, and her family can see him. Her best friend is.her complete opposite but AOL always there for her when she needs out. There are new neighbors moving into Frankie's old house, he's the ghost and Ever is still in love with him and can't imagine being with anyone else until she sees the new neighbor. His name is Toby also loves black and is s total mystery.
They get introduced and one thong leads to another and they start dating. Everything is fine for a whole but she still feels guilty because of Frankie. Then strange things start to happen and on her eighteenth birthday something amazing happens. Frankie is somehow bought back to,life by someone she doesn't even like, Toby's ex girlfriend.
Of course this comes with certain consequences but you won't find out what that is until the end. But from the point he comes back we find out that Toby and his friends are soul collectors what is that exactly and what does that mean for everyone involved. Things get complicated for everyone involved. With the consequences finally exposed how will everyone react to them. Again this was an interesting read and I would love to see what happens next to all the characters involved.
The cover is absolutely beautiful and perfect for this story. I can't wait to see what they come up with for the next cover. Hopefully Frankie will be solid and made Toby will be pictured too. So exciting.
I received this book from NetGalley and Curiosity Quills Press so that I may give my honest opinion and a review. Whether it is good or not please do not let it discourage you from purchasing/reading the book yourself and forming your own opinion. What might be good for me may not be good for you and vice versa. With that said, Happy Reading Everyone!!!
