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.
Ever Van Ruysdael (EVER) is your typical teenager except she has a ghost in her house. Her best friend and the secret love of her life died but his spirit remained with her. Somehow the bond they had before he died was so strong that it’s magically keeping them together.
Frankie has been her friend forever and he has no clue Ever is in love with him. The friendship they have is refreshing. Frankie is a funny guy and cares about his friend and her family.
Everything between them has now become a routine even thought is far from normal. One day Ever notices someone has moved across from her house. Intrigued by the new neighbor she finds Toby.
Toby fits the description of totally hot and dangerous but somehow makes Ever feel at ease. Whatever started as a friendship has now flourished into a full blown rollercoaster. Toby has a secret and Ever is in for the ride of her life.
Frankie tries to warn her but will it be to late…
As soon as I hit that first page I was hooked. Ever is a refreshing tale of love, friendship and loyalty. Ever is an example of self righteousness. It was amazing to meet an insecure teenager blossom into a fiery young woman.
I am sure that will see a bit more of her fire in the next installment and cannot wait to read what will happen next.
It was hard not to fall for Frankie and Toby. Frankie was the all American boy next door, with his quirky sense of humor and humbleness but Oh.Dear.God! Do we get a glimpse of the fire in him? Toby was also red hot searing fire all the time but he has a hidden sweet side that we get to see towards the end.
These boys are both swoon worthy and I hope to read more on them. These are the images I pictured while reading the book
