This book...when does book 3 come out? 5(gazillion) stars.I don't really have the words for what this book did to me. I need Brodi Ashton to send me book 3 and I am more than willing to offer up my services as a pre-reader (as if she doesn't probably already have a million offers for this). After reading the novella about Cole I was excited to get into Everbound. I won't lie, he has become one of my favorite characters through the series...I know that this won't be what some people are expecting but he really isn't just a bad guy....Throughout this book, he continues to push Nikki to see that he does love her. We don't get a lot of (current) Jack in this one but we do get to see how the relationship evolved for Nikki and Jack. I loved how Ashton did the flashbacks and integrated them into the current story. We truly got to see the friends to more progression and I enjoyed it.I really liked the world building done in this book of the Everneath and the way Ashton took the reader on the journey with the group. Now...since I am not giving any spoilers away, I will say that there is a HUGE twist at the end of this book and I was shocked (SHOCKED) at how it wrapped up. I can't really say what it is as I don't want to take away from anyone's enjoyment of the story progression but once you read it, you will see what I mean and understand why I can't say anything. Just trust me when I say, get this book, sit down, and enjoy the story.
