Kylie Bransford was all girl. She loved her long black hair that touched
her lower back, and refused to cut it no matter how much her mother
pleaded. She wore pink sneakers on the field when she cheered, her
room was surrounded by mermaids, and her walls were decorated in pink
and purple shades. She was “all” girl. Kylie loved to be on
the go and in the know. The only thing that made not only her world,
but her heart stop was Myles Russin. Myles was one of the cutest boys
in the 8th grade. The night she invited him over to watch television
was the night she knew for sure she’d receive her first kiss. Her
tongue trailed the braces that shielded her teeth as Myles leaned
forward with his eyes closed. With much disdain she pushed him away.
Kylie had to come clean and reveal her secret. Kylie Bransford was
biological born a boy, but lived as a girl. She just hoped Myles
could see past her situation and like her for who she was and not
what was in between her legs.

Characters: Cole, Allie
Is ever lasting love a blessing—or a curse?
Thanks to their adoptive parents, Allie and Cole have shared an unwavering connection since childhood. Now, teenagers, they’ve been told their bond goes deeper than friendship. Allie and Cole are soul mates, destined to fall in love with one another again and again across the ages. For Cole, who remembers the past, the news is welcome. But Allie resists what she sees as a threat to her freedom, a ghost story, perhaps even a fantastical plan designed to control her . . .
In rebellion, Allie pushes Cole away—leaving him to battle the memories that haunt him and the pain of losing her once and for all. But his absence may prove too much for Allie’s heart to bear. Will she keep fighting the mysterious ties that bind them? Or will she find herself desperately pursuing the very fate she rejected—and encountering obstacles she didn’t expect?
Ever Lasting is told in the first-person narrative, where the two souls of Allie and Cole would also reincarnate and destined to fall in love with each other. Until this reincarnation, Allie didn’t feel what Cole felt. Refusing to force false feelings from Allie, Cole decided to distance himself from the one person that he swore to love.
Even though Ever Lasting is the third title in the Cursed series penned by author Odessa Gillespie Black, I felt I got the concept without reading the prior books in the series. Reading other books with the same plotline I thought that Odessa Gillespie Black does a wonderful job of developing the plotline and characters.
