My cat and i decided we should review the series we have been enjoying lately (When i say cat i mean, i read he sits on my knee and gets cuddles.)
With out giving to much away i would like to give a brief overview of the story.
Ever Bloom's life was torn apart one tragic night when her mother, father, little sister and dog were killed in a tragic road accident. To make matters worse Ever had to be uprooted and moved from her home in Oregan to Laguna beach with her only living realative, her aunt. Not long after a boy came to town that would not only change her lift but had done so already, while she was dealing with the death of her loved ones she would have to deal with things no one ever would Ever realize.
At first i found this book quite slow, the plot dragged on and on until there where only 'about' 50 pages left then WHAM, i was shocked when the pin dropped, as soon as the pin dropped i was totally addicted.
The story was well writen and flowed nicely.
There are a couple of annoying consistancies (I am up to book three). While i like Alyson Noel's work her over use of "i pressed my lips together" is getting kind of annoying, and Ever's on going fued with school bullie does not seam to have a point, ok i guess every story needs its villan but i just dont get the point of theirs.
Having said that these annoyances are my personal ones and are extremely easy to look past.
It has a romance story similar to Edward and Bella's from Twilight but is so much more modern and realistic and Damen does not treat Ever like his little puppet.
If you liked twilight you will love this.
if you hated twilight you will still love it.
It's different and Alyson Noel is such a better writer then Stephanie Meyer.
all in all i completely love this series.
