Book Review-Eternal Eden by Nicole Williams
College sophomore Bryn Dawson is a self-proclaimed poster child for normal. However, the day William Hayward enters her life, normalcy is the last thing Bryn will be able to count on if she wants to be with him. Too mysterious and appealing to be good for a girl, Bryn feels drawn to him in a way that seems out of her control—as if fate is orchestrating it.
Despite every red flag and warning siren going off in her head telling her not to, Bryn falls hard for William, knowing he’s categorically different from anyone she’s ever met. She never imagined how right she was. When William takes her deeper into the rabbit hole of his world, Bryn must decide just how much she is willing to sacrifice to be with him, knowing no matter what, fate always finds a way to have the last laugh.
Spinning a new twist on star-crossed lovers, Eternal Eden will put Bryn through a gauntlet of turmoil, challenging her to find the power within herself to become the heroine in her own story
This book was my Lent Challenge book brought forth by Mary. Each of us got to pick a book for the other to read. Mary had been trying to get me to read this book for months now..with this challenge she was able to finally force me to read it LOL!. Not that I am sorry, I liked the book...I just didn't love it as much as she did!
I liked Bryn, she was strong and independent. I liked William. I kind of even thought at the beginning he was super dreamy. I just didn't like them together as much. They, especially William just got a bit mushy for my liking. Don't get me wrong I love a good romance just as much as the next person..but this was a bit to much for me.
The story was predictable . I saw alot of the things happening before I actually read them, but it never stopped me from turning the page. Nicole Williams take on Immortally was a bit different than others I had read and I liked that it was. My biggest problem with this book, other than the spew of sugar from Williams mouth, was the way he found Bryn. Mary and I even had a discussion about this. I had a hard time believing the possibility of it happening. Which by the way is laughable in itself as I was just fine with the fact that William as Immortal and had lived 250 years!
The biggest enjoyment I received from this book, was as Mary predicted...Patrick . She knows my love for a cocky boy! The few times he made his appearance known were always my favorites. I just wish that Williams would have included him more so I could have gotten to know him better. In fact, I looked forward to the fleeting moments I was able to spend with him.
Will I read the next two books in the trilogy? I am not sure yet. I can imagine the ending right now. Its just the road leading to it that may detour me. But of course, if a sexy blond in a Maserati MC-12 were to drive by and lead me down it...I'm sure I would take a spin!
