This week's Tease comes from

Brodi Ashton

First - The Blurb:
Last spring, Nikki Beckett vanished, sucked into an underworld known as the Everneath. Now she’s returned—to her old life, her family, her boyfriend—before she’s banished back to the underworld . . . this time forever. She has six months before the Everneath comes to claim her, six months for good-byes she can’t find the words for, six months to find redemption, if it exists.

Nikki longs to spend these precious months forgetting the Everneath and trying to reconnect with her boyfriend, Jack, the person most devastated by her disappearance—and the one person she loves more than anything. But there’s just one problem: Cole, the smoldering immortal who enticed her to the Everneath in the first place, has followed Nikki home. Cole wants to take over the throne in the underworld and is convinced Nikki is the key to making it happen. And he’ll do whatever it takes to bring her back, this time as his queen.

As Nikki’s time on the Surface draws to a close and her relationships begin slipping from her grasp, she is forced to make the hardest decision of her life: find a way to cheat fate and remain on the Surface with Jack or return to the Everneath and become Cole’s queen.

Everneath is a captivating story of love, loss, and immortality from debut author Brodi Ashton
Second - The Tease:
Okay, I had a hard time choosing this week so I decided to give you two:
Nikki and Cole:
"Are you okay?" I asked, distracted. I wanted back inside the vision.
"Nothing a little mouth-to-mouth won't cure," he said, but he couldn't muster the energy to laugh at his own joke. "You're no good for me, Nik," he said in between gasps.
"What do you mean?"
His breathing slowed a little and he looked up at me. "I can't say no to you."
Nikki and Jack:
He took my silence to mean it was safe. We held our lips together, tentative and still.
But he didn't let it stay that casual for long.  He pressed his lips closer, parting his mouth against mine. I shivered, and he put his arms around me and pulled me closer so that our bodies were touching in so many places.
Third - My Thoughts:
It took me a little while to get into this book, but once I did, I found it difficult to put down.
The story is told from Nikki's POV. After spending 100 years in the Eveneath (6 months in Earth time) she returns to the surface. However, she can only remain for 6 months before the 'Tunnels' will come for her and take her back to the Everneath, this time, for good. Can she find a way to avoid them and stay, or will she be forced to say goodbye forever?
Reuniting with her human boyfriend - Jack, she desperately tries to find a way to defeat not only the Tunnels, but also Cole, the Everliving who wants to claim her for himself.
The end leaves you wanting more. Fortunately for me, I have Everbound (Book #2) waiting in the wings.
My Rating: 4 out of 5 Stars
