Book Description

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.

1.0 out of 5 stars What, what, WHAT are you doing?! October 30, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
No, but seriously. The only reason I finished this book was because it was so bad that it was actually keeping me amused enough to turn the page. Plus, I desperately wanted there to be something at the end that could somehow make these wasted hours actually worthwhile. Unfortunately, I was disappointed.

The novel is slowly built up to be one thing, and then transforms into some hideously regurgitated Twilight-esque romance that made me wonder if I was still reading the same book. First of all, we have Bryn's "dark past," which I suppose was the author's way of lending some depth behind the reason for her protagonist's utter lack of personality. I'm not kidding. All Bryn does is sigh and whine about how "life is so unfair and I'm just so hideous, why are guys even paying attention to me? Oh woe is me I killed my parents because I ordered dessert." WHAT?!?! And the fact that her parents were randomly murdered by some insane passerby with a gun is just...never expounded upon. I really hate when authors ignore the rules of probability just to give their characters an excuse to drag their feet and act generally emo.

Honestly, Bryn is not only pathetically negative about every aspect of her life, but she's seriously thick on top of it all. Why would you go around thinking you're nothing much to look at when the most popular guy in school as well as the (apparently) most gorgeous guy on the face of the planet both have the hots for you? It takes more than self-esteem issues to distort reality to the point where you're being called "exquisite" and "gorgeous" (literal quotes from the book, mind you), and you simply pass them off as people either lying or being polite about how truly heinous-looking you are.


I wish I were joking; really, I do.

1.0 out of 5 stars Woe is me August 15, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I just bought the sequel to this book because I saw it and vaguely remembered having the first one. I decided to reread the first one to get me up to the date for the second, and then I remembered that I did not like this book!
The story starts off with the main character Bryn being unable to believe that a good looking guy could actually like her, she does not have that kind of luck, and she is just so plain looking. Then she proceeds to complain about how everything in her life is just so hard and so sad. When things go wrong for her she feels that that is just how things are, yet she still manages to complain non-stop. But when things go right for her she still looks for the dark cloud, and continues to complain non-stop. Boys do not like this. I just do not even feel that it is believable that William would continue to pursue her after even the first night when she whines about how hard everything is.
Sometimes people have hard lives. Things don't always go right. The important thing is to hold your head up and to know that you can handle it. What makes you into the person that you are is how you handle the bad in life, not by whining over everything but by accepting what life has given you and making the best that you can of it.

5.0 out of 5 stars You seriously must read this book!!! April 14, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I finished the book just this morning and I got to tell you people, you are missing out if you skip over this book! The story begins with Bryn Dawson, as she begins a new but sad start at an Oregon college. Bryn is trying to move on from her past tragedies, but isn't really moving on at all until she has the "misforuntate" meeting with William. William is a new student who pretty much demanded a tour of the school, and Bryn hates everything about him. He's confident, arrogant, and surrounded by members of the opposite sex that are vying for his attention. Is William all he seems though? He may be just the person to smash down the walls around her heart whether she wants him to or not. Bryn is confused why someone like William would show any interest in her at all, but unfortunatly for Bryn, William isn't the only one who shows interest. I really feel it would be an injustice to reveal the plot of this book, but it's truly a love story through and through. It's character driven, so the supernatural elements blend in nicely but don't over power the purpose of the book. The backdrops and settings are very well written without being overly wordy. You can picture the surroundings in your head very well without the author taking 10 pages to do so, which in my opinion is a great art in and of itself. It's written for a YA audience, but I'm a 30 something and loved it! There are some small editing flaws with misplaced words or spelling but not enough to really be distracting. You will feel like you've been on a journey right alongside the characters, and grow to love Bryn and William! I am excited for Fallen Eden! Come on Summer!!!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Not good June 14, 2011
By Lana
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
So, normally I am a fan of young adult fiction and being an Oregonian I was looking forward to a book set in my own state but this one is awful. The book is riddled with spelling and grammatical errors, and characters are shallow and prone to unbelievingly one-dimensional reactions. The plot is shaky and the characters keep doing big, stupid things without a modicum of realistic motivation. And it is such a Twilight ripoff. And please stop it with the obviously attractive lead characters saying how plain or ugly they are all the time--that constant (and uninspired) refrain gets old fast. It's not worth $.99. Save your money for something better.
