About the book:

They say first loves are oftentimes the end of one’s innocence.

Those words couldn’t ring truer for Everlynne Lawson, whose first brush with romance came with a heartbreak…and the thing that seems to follow her everywhere she goes. Death.
After a great tragedy, Everlynne loses all she cares about—her dreams, her family, and her soulmate, Joe.

Guilt-ridden, Everlynne decides to isolate herself in Salem, Massachusetts. A shell of the woman she once was, she takes her days one at a time, careful not to allow herself the joy she believes others in her life were robbed of. But when the mysterious, handsome Dominic storms into her life, it becomes more difficult to stay in solitude. Dominic is different: adventurous, joyous, with lust for life and a passion to make her his.

Everlynne is on the cusp of reinventing herself once again when the old wounds of her past are resurrected, rawer than ever. There is nothing worse than being in love with two men.
Especially when one of them hates you.

My Review...

Whew…what a story! Serendipity and fate play a cruel mistress in this new book by Ms. Shen.

This is the story of Ever. Three people, two love stories, and all the chaos that comes from it.

Ever is such a tragic soul. I was enamored with her darkness and her goth girl embrace. I like that she didn’t follow the mainstream. Just as her future was beginning, bright and beautiful a tragedy happens and changes her whole world outlook and how she decides how to live her life.

The men in her life come into her world at both the perfect time and at the worst. The angst of this story is so on point, and it made me invest even more in this story and to root for Ever and the man she was destined to be with. 

From the beautiful, tragic history of Salem to the beautiful shores of California and the world beyond Ms. Shen takes you on a journey that will keep you riveted to the pages and cheering Ever on as she navigates her world.
