I love Patrick and adore Nicole William's works. I had been waiting for this release for quite some time. I read it all the first day because, frankly, I had no will power to stop. The only qualm I have with this book is that I really wanted to see more of the paranormal elements. I am sure book two will go there and will make me love this one even more. You do not need to read the Eden trilogy to read this book and understand it, but it is such an amazing series, that I would :). I will be buying the second half of this story the day it comes out.

Like other reviewers, I am a true fan of the Eden trilogy and developed a fondness for the Patrick Hayward character. I was thrilled to see that Nicole wrote this book and continued Patrick's story. After all, Nicole writes well, tells a romantic tale, and portrays fun and realistic characters. So buying this book was a no-brainer for me.

But what I had no way of knowing upfront was how this story line would affect me. Nicole selected a very real topic (domestic violence) as a subplot and told the story in such realistic, romantic, and honest ways that I fully fell in love with Patrick's character; I thought I loved Patrick in the Eden books, now I have a deeper level of love and respect for his character.

This new book (written from Patrick's point of view) will make women swoon over the way real men--like our granddaddy's--used to treat women and protect women from abusive dirt bags. Defending our honor, protecting us, making us happy with genuine romance and gentlemanly behavior, real men like Patrick Hayward can make even the coldest of hearts go pitter-patter.

I am clueless why some people gave this book negative reviews. Perhaps it's because Nicole deals with a modern and sensitive topic in the backdrop of Patrick's story? The topic is not a pleasant reality, but is definitely a symptom of our mortal world and dealt with powerfully when described by a two-hundred plus year-old immortal character. In my opinion, it took boldness and authenticity for Nicole to weave a tale about abuse and neglect into a witty and romantic main story, but Nicole's boldness played off in a very successful manner.

In one line: I definitely recommend that you buy this book! I promise you will love Patrick even more than you thought you loved him in United Eden!

I loved the Eden series and really enjoyed Patrick in the first series and was waiting very (im)patiently for this series to come out! I was not disappointed. I also read this in one day. Downloaded in the AM of the day it came out and finished it this AM. It was a very quick read, but had a lot of substance that made you fall in love even more with Patrick! Can't wait for the next one, Nicole!

AHHH! what can I say about Fissure?!

I literally feel high on Patrick! :-) Gah I missed him!

If you thought William and Bryn's story was incredible then prepare for Awesomeness! How can you not when our main man here is Patrick FREAKING SEXY Hayward! Okay Okay on to my review....

The book picks up a month after United Eden. Patrick has turned into a shell of himself after seeing the women he fell in love with marry his older brother. You would think Patrick was a jealous fool, but he's far from that. He's happy for William and Bryn but it doesn't stop his heart from hurting. After the Hayward men interfere and bring him out his "funk" Patrick is sent to the world of mortals in their 20s. College.

After slacking off and being called out on it by a girl with the "sexiest" legs he's seen Patrick stumbles upon Emma. Little does he know that Emma will be his other half in all ways he didn't see coming. When Emma seems to call him out on all his "crappy lines" Patrick can't help but be intrigued with her and little by little comes to terms that he is truly and utterly in love with her. Now if only things would be that easy....

Enter Ty Steele. Emma's incredibly despicable boyfriend. From the first line you know that this guy is the devil incarnate. From his way of speaking to her in public and the "volleyball bruises" Emma hides. Unfortunately Emma is good at hiding and Patrick trusts that she wouldn't lie to him. So throughout the book we have to see a scared Emma defending her terrible "boyfriend" and pushing Patrick away. I swear I wanted to wring her neck every time she refused Patrick's help. I wanted Patrick to show her that he was invincible, unfortunately we don't get to see that in this book.

In Nicole Williams' Eden series, we follow the story of Bryn Dawson and her swoon worthy, perfect, every bit of a man, William Hayward. In Fissure, we get a story of William's every bit as swoon worthy brother, Patrick.

I fell in love with Patrick with the little bit of him we got to experience in the Eden series so I was overly excited to read a story that was not only dedicated to just him but is also told from his perspective. *insert girly squeel here* While it is not necessary to read the Eden series before this one, I think it is beneficial so that you know the background of the story and characters.

This story picks up approximately a month after United Eden in which Patrick had professed his love to Bryn right before she was betrothed to William, the love of her life and Patrick's brother. Not surprisingly, Bryn chose William but this left Patrick with a big whole in his heart that he didn't know how to fill despite the many women that would no doubt line up to try and help him fill it.

In an attempt to get him out of his funk, Patrick's father enrolls him at Standford. Patrick is not amused with this idea and spends the first couple of days lounging around campus, cat-calling as the co-eds of Standford passed by on their way to class. When he finally does attend class, he ends up sitting next to the one person that had the nerve to call him out during his cat-calling escapades, Emma Scarlett...and her big, beefy boyfriend of 6 years.

Patrick soon finds that Emma is to be the one to fill the void in his heart, however, her, her boyfriend and her brothers do not make this an easy feat for Patrick.

I loved this book, I love Nicole's writing style and I so love Patrick's wittiness.
