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 that no matter what, fate always finds a way to have the last laugh.

    more from this reviewer

    LOVE IT!

    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!!

    Just ok

    Based on other reviews, I thought this was going to be a great book. It was super slow for the first 600 pages. I also felt it was predictable and a waste of my time. The main character seemed "wo is me" and then became super obsessed. Overall it was just ok. If you want a book that is long and doesn't really get anywhere, this is a book for you.

    Not so hot!!!

    I read this book based on other reviews. But I'm sorry I wasted my time. If you want lots and lots of run on sentences, words used out of context, bad grammar, and too many overly descriptive and inappropriate words, then this is the book for you. I loved the story but can't finish because of the writing!!!!

    Best Book I've Read This Summer!

    I purchased Eternal Eden because of the reviews and the killer price. It did not disappoint and has become my new favorite book of the year. The story was a breath of fresh air and the romance between William and Bryn was heart stopping at times. I can't wait to read the sequel.

    Too familiar...

    I thought this book sounded familiar until I finally realized that it has been done before: Twilight. Gogeous guys fighting over seemingly plain girl who has bad luck and has a bad outlook on life and herself.. then what do you know? The lead man is immortal and she is too! The author even USES THE SAME LINES FROM TWILIGHT. Also poorly written and major grammatical and spelling errors. I can see why it is free.

    Delightfully Addicting

    This book is a non stop page turner and full of creative desciptive writing. The romance is twisted and wonderful, sweet but dangerous. Each character is well define and has its own personality along with charecteristics. Suprises await around each page and several scenes may even make you gasp. This book shows a whole othr side to eternal life, and makes you wonder if youd really want to live forever if the one you love isnt by your side.

    Gosh...

    One thing i hate is when a writer uses the same phrase over and over again, and that is what happens in this book. All she ever says is 'the man in front of me' 'the man i love' 'the man…blah, blah, blah' WE GET IT ALREADY!!!!!!!!!

    Good Book

    This was a really good book with great writing. I really enjoyed the story but decided I did not like Paul Lowe's character. He was pushy, arrogant and a regular pain. Nicole Williams did a great job drawing me into the story and hooking me into it. Now I can't wait to read the remaining two books in the Eden series.

    Perfect

    This book ( as well as the other two ) were fantastic. I couldnt stop reading . The whole made up place and people felt so real. When i finished the 3rd book i couldnt get over the characters, but then agian you know what they say "you know its a good book when you flip the last page and feel like youve lost a friend." And honestly it has. I will miss william who brings passion and happiness to me, patrick who makes me laugh, even paul who made me wanna go inside the pages and ring his neak. Most of all ill miss brynn because shes so careing and brave, she might be a fictonal character but shell always have a place in my heart. All in all i hope anyone who reads this series well enjoy like i have .
    Ps. Wish there would be a book number 4...

    Love It!!!! Different

    I love this book! As a college student, I appreciate that there is some YA paranormal romance that has older characters. I did not understand the idea of immortal beings who had vampire like characteristics at first, but Nicole Williams has a wonderful way of explaining it. The characters are funny. There were times when I wanted to scream at them and hit them. I really got into this book. I was surprised when I reached the end. The other two books in this trilogy are also pretty good. I definitely say check this out if you want a different kind of paranormal. There are no vampires or werewolves in here, the characters are all very human!

    Breathtaking

    Imagine having the two people you love most in the world be murdered and almost you yourself also. And its all your fault. Living with the guilt eats you alive and you decide a change of scenery is a great idea.
    When you arrive at your new college you try to lay low, which is hard when the hottie captain of the basketball team likes you. Attempting to stay away you are basically a recluse. One day you meet a new student. Correction: a new hot male student. He captures your senses and your heart. With the help of Hottie #2 you go on a journey that literally changes you life.

    Read this book, it is so amazing. Filled with action and 'unconditional freakin' love' it is a definite read nomatter how old you are. This book is acceptable for all ages. There is no detailed descriptions and no sex scenes. Phenomenal and you have to read it.
    -MW
    And its NOT abiut vampires and werewolves!

    Loved this book!

    Just from reading the short synopsis i want sure about the book, but after seeing it was fee i thought I'd give it a chance. It turned out to be one of my favorite new series! The story is awesome and the ups and downs that play out make you feel for the characters. If you want a good read this 3 book series is the one to pick!

    Good thing it was free...

    I couldn't even FINISH this book, it was that bad. There was so much improper grammar and so many run on sentences that it was painful to read each paragraph. The logic of the plot kept me guessing what the author was thinking when she wrote this, and I'm still wondering what was going on in her head. At least the book was free, though.

    Um, yeah

    919 pages of rambling, "the man...", stupid choices by main character, twilight knockoff moments, and chapters titles that tell you who/what will happen in that specific chapter (ex. In the chapter "William" She meets a boy named William.) If you have time to waste time this is an o.k. book to read. But I won't blame you if you end up skipping some chapters.
