My Swoon for this week comes from

(Everneath # 2)

Brodi Ashton

First - The Blurb:

Nikki Beckett could only watch as her boyfriend, Jack, sacrificed himself to save her, taking her place in the Tunnels of the Everneath for eternity — a debt that should’ve been hers. She’s living a borrowed life, and she doesn’t know what to do with the guilt. And every night Jack appears in her dreams, lost and confused and wasting away.

Desperate for answers, Nikki turns to Cole, the immortal bad boy who wants to make her his queen — and the one person least likely to help. But his heart has been touched by everything about Nikki, and he agrees to assist her in the only way he can: by taking her to the Everneath himself.

Nikki and Cole descend into the Everneath, only to discover that their journey will be more difficult than they’d anticipated — and more deadly. But Nikki vows to stop at nothing to save Jack — even if it means making an incredible sacrifice of her own.

In this enthralling sequel to Everneath, Brodi Ashton tests the bonds of destiny and explores the lengths we’ll go to for the ones we love.

Second - My Swoon:
What was I thinking? I was thinking too much. That was the problem. That was always the problem.
Before I could think anymore, I grabbed his shirt and pulled him toward me. I kissed him. Lightly. Quickly.
I sank back, but he gathered me close to him again, and then his lips were on mine. He pulled me tighter against him, his hands pushing against my back; but he wasn't satisfied with our nearness until he pushed me right up against the wall.
I was clawing at him just as much. My fingers tangled in his hair, then grabbed at his shirt, pulling him closer. His kiss became deeper; his lips urged my mouth to open.
I didn't care that we'd caught a few stares from students passing by. I didn't care that the bell to begin class rang. I didn't care that everything between us had changed. All I cared about was the fact that no matter how hard I tried, I couldn't get any closer to Jack.
Third - My Thoughts:
Everbound basically continues on from where Everneath left off. Jack - the love of Nikki's life - is trapped in the Tunnels after having taken Nikki's place. Nikki, in a state of despair, is filled with a desperate need to rescue him. However, she cannot do it alone. Engaging Cole's help, she embarks on a journey into the Everneath.
This is not a story loaded in swoon worthy moments. It's more of an adventure through a dark and mysterious place where the unexpected happens around almost every corner. There are lots of flashbacks to the past. And some action.
Like with the first, once I got into this book, I found it hard to put down. I'm now looking forward to seeing how it all ends in Book #3 - Evertrue - due for release January 2014.
My Rating: 4 out of 5
