Everneath? Evernope (Book Review)

Everneath by 

Last spring, Nikki Beckett vanished, sucked into an underworld known as the Everneath, where immortals Feed on the emotions of despairing humans. Now she's returned- to her old life, her family, her friends- before being 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 months reconnecting with her boyfriend, Jack, the one person she loves more than anything. But there's a problem: Cole, the smoldering immortal who first enticed her to the Everneath, has followed Nikki to the mortal world. And he'll do whatever it takes to bring her back- this time as his queen. 

As Nikki's time grows short and her relationships begin slipping from her grasp, she's 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...

Sadly, I must admit, Everneath is one of those paranormal novels I didn’t expect to love from the beginning. But I thought it could be interesting. I thought it could be funny. The plot seemed good. But it really just didn’t cut it for me. 
Here is sort of how my mind reacted while reading:

Me: A broken girl deciding to go away for a century with an immortal and then suddenly coming back? That sounds amazing. She could learn so much! In a hundred years she could be easily the smartest girl out there. She must have gone back to earth to help society in some way, right? 
Book: Of course not! She did it for a boy. 
Me: Well, Jack must be really special. He must be somehow connected to the plot in some way that can effect all of the Everlings. He must be able to save her like no other. 
Book: Nope. It’s just their love. 
Me: Well it must be really special like- 
Book: No, Sarah. Their very unorigional teen love saved her. That is what this story is about. 
Me: Oh-.-

For all the people that really liked this novel, i’m sorry, but I just could not get into it. None of the twists surprised me. Nothing got to me emotionally. Part of me just wanted to stop reading this dang book. But it wasn’t quite that bad.
The end of the book was the best, and by the end of the book I mean the last 5%. The only thing that interested me in the entire novel was the bit with the professor and how it was realted to Egyptian-ness.

Will I read the next book? Deffinitely not. Did I like it? No really.
