Since a horrible accident claimed the lives of her family, Ever can see auras, hear people's thoughts, and know a person's entire life story by touch. Going out of her way to avoid human contact and suppress her abilities has branded her as a freak at her new high school—but everything changes when she meets Damen.

Damen Auguste 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 see 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. She has no idea just who he really is—or what he is. The only thing she knows to be true is she's falling deeply and helplessly in love with him.

First off, I need to say that I love the cover for this book as much as I love the main character's name, Ever. :) And in the case of this story, it suits her perfectly. Very clever!

I really enjoyed this well-constructed story about a teenager who loses her family in a car accident and feels so responsible that she pretty much decides to withdraw from life. She's pretty and has lovely long, blonde hair that she hides beneath hooded sweaters. And she's constantly listening to music so that she doesn't have to hear the thoughts of others. Oh, did I mention that after the accident she can see people's auras and read their thoughts? Well, she can.

Ever's living a quiet life with her aunt, staying in the shadows and enjoying the company of her two best friends, Haven and Miles. However, when she meets Damen, everything changes. As much as she tries to keep her distance, she just can't ignore how he makes her feel and gets caught up in a whirlwind of emotion and revelation.

This is a lovely story about a very emotional young girl who is forced to come to terms with life after she feels she doesn't deserve it. It's packed with interesting characters, amazing explanations, and a great conclusion. I liked Ever's voice because it was honest and often moody, matching her reactions.

Still, I want to know where Ever and Damen will go from here... just as well, I've got BLUE MOON on my bookshelf already. ;)
