About the Author

Surprisingly, Adam Scott Jaffe’s career as a divorce lawyer inspired his semi-autobiographical book Defending Eve. He has always been a romantic soul, yet learning to give himself completely to love has been a struggle—one his leading character shares openly as Defending Eve unfolds. Jaffe’s romantic side stands juxtaposed against his career. No one seeing him in the courtroom would suspect that this man has a sensitive heart. Yet it is his very legal experience which has given him a view behind the curtain of romance. He discovered that a simple yet paramount secret could keep clients out of his office. He realized there was a solution to preventing dissolution of those dreams all relationships begin with. In this book, Jaffe uses the fiction genre to reveal the outworking of that secret. Jaffe is a Senior Partner at Jaffe & Haug, an Atlanta Trial Lawyers Group in Atlanta, Georgia. He has litigated thousands of divorce and domestic cases in the course of his career. This experience has involved handling complex and highly contested divorce trials and settlements nationwide. Witchcraft, intoxicated toddlers, DNA donors and surrogates, same-sex marriages, child abuse and molestation, bipolar and other disorders, spousal slavery, out of state terminations, forensics, step-parent adoptions and more might have given him a jaded view of relationships. Instead, these unique situations have proved pivotal in shaping the interweaving of those secrets that create strong relationships you’ll find in Defending Eve. Adam lives in Atlanta, Georgia with Georgia, his adorable Ruby Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. He’s a loyal Georgia Bulldogs fan. When he’s not watching the game, he enjoys disappearing to his beach home in Destin, Florida.

Once I started reading this book, I couldn't put it down.
Lauren Kent
Well, this book may just give a little insight into how some men (and some women) think when it comes to love, relationships, marriage, and dating.

My favorite writer is Nicholas Sparks ,and if you like his books you will love this new author.

This story is a great read and completely relatable for anyone who has ever been on a journey of personal growth and the search for true, soul-shaking, everlasting love. I loved reading a story like this from a man's perspective, not to mention a divorce lawyer! After what the author must deal with professionally on a day to day basis, the optimism and honesty he shows through this story is refreshing and inspirational. I think every girl out there dreams of finding such a romantic soul! Defending Eve is a reminder to all that if you continue to challenge yourself to grow while holding true to what's truly important (family, traditions, values, and honesty about what truly makes you happy) the search for love will definitely be worth it in the end.

Defending Eve caught me with the first few pages! How do men think? Well, this book may just give a little insight into how some men (and some women) think when it comes to love, relationships, marriage, and dating. Now, I’m not sure if that’s a good thing or not, but I certainly enjoyed every moment of this journey.

The author manages to draw you in with the descriptions of the beautiful locations, and the equally attractive and flawed characters. If you’re not careful, you may find a little of yourself in some of those characters. If this book is at all based on the author’s life and relationship experiences, then kudos to him for bearing a bit of his soul.

With Adam Scott Jaffe’s first novel, he has knocked it out of the park! I can’t wait to read what he has in store for us next. I hope he won’t make us wait too long. For now, I can say, Defending Eve, you won’t be disappointed!

MY wife, Charlie,says as follows and I agree with every word:Defending Eve is a vivid, tender story of a young man on his journey to find true love. Travel with him thru the highs and lows of maturity as he pursues his goal of the perfect love. From a mans point of view, women will be amazed at the inside track into and thru a mans eyes and his heart. A real page turner with a surprising ending. His first writing, what a wonderful storyteller, one that you will long remember. My favorite writer is Nicholas Sparks ,and if you like his books you will love this new author. The only thing better would be Defending Eve made into a TV movie. I'll be there with the popcorn.

At one point in time or another, we have all been through some rough patches in life. This book is truly heart-warming for anyone who doesn't think they can overcome the odds. Reading through what the author went through and how things turned out is a tale that many can only dream of. If you want something that is honest, endearing and inspirational, you have to check this book out. Once you start reading, you can't stop.

This is a great first book. It is sensitive, real, and so kindly written. It makes you want to get to know the author. What a great friend he is. You'll want him as a friend after you read his book. If you're single, you'll want to date him. He is intense as a boyfriend and has a loving, and caring personality. When you finish his book, you'll feel as if you know him. Will be looking forward to his next book.

An interesting story about young love and the inner turmoils which persist. Adam and Geneva express the dynamics of their relationship in a most spell-binding manner. This is an interesting case study of young love and the survival to exist. Jaffe's occupation as a divorce attorney presents a view not often seen and understood. A book that keeps your interest from beginning to end.

All I can say is wow,the relationship between the main character Adam and Geneva is electric! You know they were meant to be together since they first met, the way the author described there relationship was amazing. The pre-geneva relationships that Adam had took me back to how it was to feel that first kiss,that first akward sexual conquest. Great book a must read for anyone!

This is a really great book. I loved how the meaning and point of the story isn't so clearly put out there. Everything the couple goes through is depicted very well and you're able to really hang on to the story line. He wrote it so you can really connect to it. It feels like something we've all been through. A truly amazing read.
