Ever (Ever, #1) - Jessa Russo I really enjoyed this book. The characters were well rounded and had their own quirks, etc. I liked that Ever, the main character and narrator, was not your typical female lead in a romance. She was confident and had only the typical, and reasonable, body image issues of your ordinary 17 year old. This allows a real story to be told that doesn't have half of it taken up with her wondering why guys think she's cute.

The romance is hot, steamy, and swoon-worthy. Lots of kisses. It does have real issues in it as well. There was one part that made me very sad. That scene was beautifully written (I try to keep my reviews spoiler free, so you'll have to read it yourself).

It's a romance with some paranormal tossed in for a little extra flavor. Definitely worth the read.

The ONLY issue I had (hence the 4 stars) was I felt the paranormal was not explained that much. There were several things hinted, but none of it was resolved. Granted you don't want to give everything away in the first book of a series, but it would have been nice to have some of what was going on explained more. I'm hoping the author explores more of this in the next book (which I very much want to read!)
