Gang-crossed Lovers

Reminiscent of Romeo and Juliet and West Side Story, Juan and Nina are star-crossed, or in this case gang-crossed, lovers. Because of her mother's failing health, Nina Sagastume is sent to live with her cousin, Tajo. Tajo is the leader of the Bronx Gangstas. Though Nina doesn't agree with her cousin's lifestyle, she really doesn't have a choice in the matter, as he is the only family in the states. On the other side of town is Juan Alonso.

Everlasting was very entertaining and whether intense! This book simply didn't let up! The character development and action packed storytelling was sensational.

It truly is a star-crossed romance, mixed with street-culture coming to ahead. I'll read this one again, it's for sure a favorite!
I really loved this book becuase it's all about war and love and thats what some lovers go through in everyday life. Also no one can break a part LOVE.
