Other Side of ForeverBy Shannon EckrichPublished: January 23rd, 2012 by Crescent Moon PressSeventeen-year-old Allie Anderson's telekinetic powers are anything but useful--she can't bring her father back, can't stop her mother's downward spiral into alcohol, and can't keep her from falling in love with Ethan Bradley. Loving Ethan is easy, but it comes with a hefty price: Ethan is prohibited by his people from interacting with mortals--because he isn't mortal himself. When Allie and Ethan's love is discovered, there's someone who will do anything to keep them apart. If Allie can't learn to control her powers and fight to save Ethan, this dark entity will make every attempt to stop her beating heart. And if that happens, not even the energy of an immortal can bring her back.
And now, an excerpt from Other Side of Forever:
“It’s okay,” I whispered. “We belong together.” I now knew what I was saying was true. Between his pain and my pain, the battle was over. And I could feel the pull, the magnet that had succeeded in bringing us together. “I’m not going to fight you anymore.”
His deep, dark eyes refused to stray from mine as the strength of his body pushed me back onthe sofa. Our hearts, perfectly aligned, danced in a rhythm I’d never thought possible, like hundreds of butterflies had been released into the air. Our breaths came in short, shallow gasps as he explored my neck with the softness of his lips.
Ethan brought his hands up, intertwining his fingers into mine. The warmth of our bodies connecting turned into a scorching heat, a burning desire that I didn’t understand.
He lifted his head, searching for my eyes. Once he found them, he locked on, refusing to blink as he drew me in. In an instant, it reminded me of the night we met. The way he’d seemed to peer into the depth of my soul. Except I wasn’t confused this time. Instead of fighting, instead of pushing him away like I did that night, I surrendered.
