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. 
So far this year I've read 23 books and I have to say this one is by far my favorite! It is definitely re-read worthy!

Eternal Eden is a love story. An amazing, addicting, beautifully written love story. It has all the elements of a wonderful read from the well developed characters to the shock inducing, page turning, unbelievable twists in the plot. It is also so much more than that. With its paranormal story line, from page one it was destined to be more than just another sappy love story, and oh my did it meet and surpass my expectations!

I fell in love with Nicole Williams' beautifully written characters. This woman has a unique gift of writing and I cannot wait to read more of what she has to share. She's an excellent story writer! I feel like I'm gushing, but this is truly a gush deserving book!

The characters created all have unique voices. From the nausea inducing John Townsend to the drool worthy William (I loved Patrick as well!!!) Reading this book made me think of a screen play. From words on a page Williams has created very different characters and personalities and it was an exciting journey to experience. Not to mention the emotional responses the writing evoked. I was honestly laughing out loud through some pages and crying through other, I'm pretty sure my husband thinks I've gone insane (but, he'll never understand).

Our main character Bryn is a firecracker. She sets everyone she encounters buzzing, especially the boys, even though she's insecure and can't see what the fuss is about. There are multiple love triangles in this book that kept me guessing about what will happen next.

I will keep my mouth shut on what makes this story a paranormal one. I feel the element of surprise is one of its best factors, it will keep the reader wondering and then being baffled and shocked with how wrong their predictions were! ;)

I usually try and find one thing I think could've been done better in a story but in this case my only complaint would be the end. I need more and I can't wait until this summer :)

Eternal Eden is a hidden gem that I am thrilled to have been given the chance to read and enjoy. It went above and beyond anything I could have hoped for. I recommend this book to everyone, it is definitely a good read and a must read.

Thank you to the wonderful author for this opportunity!!
