Fissure by Nicole Williams

Good Reads Description:

Patrick Hayward’s never been a one woman type of guy, that’s why he never dates just one. However, still reeling the loss of the one woman he took a chance on falling in love with to his older brother, Patrick is enrolled—sequestered, if you asked him—at Stanford in hopes of breaking him out of his months long, beard growing, rootbeer chugging, hygiene impaired, funk.

Something breaks when a certain Emma Scarlett storms into his life his first week on campus as he’s suntanning and cat calling when he should be in class. Emma sees through his act and calls him out like she’s seen his kind a million times before, but Patrick knows he isn’t one of a million, he’s one in a million. 

Intrigued by this fascinating creature that is ignorant to his charm, surrounded by four older brothers who look at Patrick like he’s a bug they could squish, and dating the same guy for the past six years who gives new meaning to the term territorial boyfriend, Patrick gravitates to her, knowing she’s everything he shouldn’t fall for.

So, of course, he can’t help himself.

Forcing the stars to realign and slapping fate in the face, Patrick takes matters into his own hands and finds a way to wrangle his way into Emma’s life at every chance. As Emma begins to open up to him, he’s about to discover she’s thwarted by as many secrets as he is. 

But hers are the kind that make you want to keep your light on at night.

Patrick never could have imagined a more unhappy ever after for himself than the one he's about to face.


If you do not remember I review all of the Eternal Eden series by Nicole Williams a long time ago.  I just loved it!  One of my fave character was Patrick, William's brother.  When Nicole announced that she would be doing a series from Patrick's point of view I was SO EXCITED!

I was a little unsure how the story would go but I knew that Nicole was a very talent author and would not rely on Bryn's and William's story to push this story through.

Anyway, it starts out with Patrick still trying to get over Bryn, but of course is not handling well.  Well, Patrick's father takes it upon himself to send Patrick to college.  Of course, Patrick would be attending Stanford.

It is here that the fun, flirty Patrick meets Emma and Emma's very serious boyfriend, Ty.  We all know that Patrick can handle himself.  He would not have lived for over 200 years if he could not.  However, Emma has a pull on Patrick and he cannot get her off his mind.

Fate pulls Emma and Patrick together and there are some really good twist and turns through out the book. There is one thing that I did not like.  The ending, because I want to see what happens! Of course, Nicole left us in a (some-what) cliffhanger.  

I am not sure when Book 2 will be out but I can guarantee that I will be reading it!


  1. This sounds REALLY good. I'm going to have to read this. Do I need to read the other books first?

  2. No not really ... it explains as it goes
