Publisher's Summary

Ever,
These letters are often all that get me through week to week. Even if it’s just random stuff, nothing important, they’re important to me. Gramps is great, and I love working on the ranch. But…I’m lonely. I feel disconnected, like I’m no one, like I don’t belong anywhere. Like I’m just here until something else happens. I don’t even know what I want with my future. But your letters, they make me feel connected to something, to someone. I had a crush on you, when we first met. I thought you were beautiful. So beautiful. It was hard to think of anything else. Then camp ended and we never got together, and now all I have of you is these letters. S**t. I just told you I have a crush on you. HAD. Had a crush. Not sure what is anymore. A letter-crush? A literary love? That’s stupid. Sorry. I just have this rule with myself that I never throw away what I write and I always send it, so hopefully this doesn’t weird you out too much. I had a dream about you, too. Same kind of thing. Us, in the darkness, together. Just us. And it was like you said, a memory turned into a dream, but a memory of something that’s never happened, but in the dream it felt so real, and it was more, I don’t even know, more RIGHT than anything I’ve ever felt, in life or in dreams. I wonder what it means that we both had the same dream about each other. Maybe nothing, maybe everything. You tell me.

I NEED NEED NEED BOOK 2 NOW!!

Caden and Ever met at an Art's Summer Camp when they were fourteen/fifteen and they both felt an instant awareness of each other but at that innocent age they were both too romantically inexperienced. Both have tragedy in their families and a love for art which makes them firm friends but they live miles apart so they agree to become pen pals and begin writing to each other every week without fail.

Over the years there's more tragedy, trials and tribulations ahead and, as they each start dating, they still continue to share teenage secrets that they wouldn't share with anyone else, give support and friendship to each other and they know they have each other despite everything. However, as they grew up their letters became far less frequent as their lives became more demanding and hectic but, despite everything, they never stopped thinking about each other.

Then, years later, something pushed Caden over the edge and he just had to find Ever and that's when their emotional, touching, tender, beautiful and very very hot love affair begins. I daren't say more except fate intervened with tragic and devastating results...... and there's a OH NO, WOAH, WHAT, HOLY SH*T of a tissue clutching cliffhanger.

Worth a credit? This was such a well-written emotional journey of two teenagers who were destined to be together but it took them years of character development and growth before they found that out. When I reached the end of this listen I felt so shocked, saddened and emotionally drained that it's going to take me a while to figure out what book could possibly follow this. But I was held riveted eager to share in every second of their growing romance so YES very creditworthy and I am desperately waiting book 2 which I will drop everything for.

Too much of everything

This book was a bit of a toss up for me. There were a few points where I couldn't put the book down, and then there were quite a few lulls where the story seemed to drag. There were also a few unrealistic elements of the plot that were a bit hard to overlook, like why Cade and Ever never called each other on the phone...or texted...or emailed each other. I think it is a far stretch of the imagination to believe that teenagers today would carry on a friendship without the use of modern electronics or social media.

I was willing to overlook that though, because I really loved how they wrote back and forth to each other over the span of several years, and how the author took her time developing their relationship. Jacinda Wilder wrote the emotions of the characters extremely well. I could really feel what they were feeling. Although the story seemed to move slowly at times, there was definitely enough going on with both characters to keep me interested.

But then it just seemed too much. People were dying left, right and center and I did not feel like it did much for the story. It didn't move it forward or strengthen the plot.
And once Ever and Cade get together, I felt that more information about their love, their relationship, their day-to-day life was missing. Instead they were at it all the time like rampant bunnies. With the style of the story, the sex scenes were too drawn out. I think I know more about Ever's nipples than about my own.

I don't know why - but it just seemed like too much of everything in the story. I missed a balance. It just felt too forced for me.

I doubt I am going finish the remainder of this series.....I was really invested in the relationship of these two characters until the last 25% of this book, but now I feel like the rest of their story is just going to be some overly dramatic teen soap opera!

Piper Goodeve , Gabriel Vaughan were really good with the delivery of the story
