BOOK SYNOPSIS (From the blurb):
After a horrible accident claims the lives of her family, sixteen-year-old Ever Bloom can see people's auras, hear their thoughts, and know someone's entire life story by touching them. Going out of her way to avoid human contact and suppress her abilities, she has been branded a freak at her new high school - but everything changes when she meets Damen Auguste.
Damen is gorgeous, exotic, and wealthy. He's the only one who can silence the noise and random energy in her head - wielding a magic so intense, it's as though he can peer straight into her soul. As Ever is drawn deeper into his enticing world of secrets and mystery, she's left with more questions than answers. And she has no idea just who he really is - or what he is. The only thing she knows to be true is that she's falling deeply and helplessly in love with him.
Evermore can seem pretty mainstream/typical, with the super hot guy keeping secrets, being all romantic and mysterious. But this novel have original and unique bits within the pages too. Like Riley, her funny dead sister, and the embarrassing mistakes Ever had been involved in throughout the book.
The things that let me down is the too good to be true power for Ever. I can stand aura reading and seeing life stories, but being able to stroke her fingers across questions on exam papers and get all the answers, as well as touching books and having the entire story appearing in her head, is just a little too.....perfect.
And Ever has an aunt, Sabine, who is an incredibly wealthy lawyer and is almost never at home. Yet for some reason, Ever thinks Sabine doesn't give her enough freedom. She talks about not liking the new life she has, even though it's something she wanted a long time ago. This really annoys me sometimes.
This is my first review so it's a bit short, and please comment about things I could add or correct, so I can improve too! :)
