HOLY WOW. This. Was. Breathtaking!!!!! The pure, raw, heart-wrenchingly powerful emotions, the exquisite writing, and the way every single piece of the story came together was perfection. This story truly makes you believe in undying, unconditional love. It is one of the very BEST series I have ever read. 6 STARS!!!
Note: Finding Eden must be read *after* Becoming Calder. It is the continuation of and conclusion to that story.
Every single emotion from Becoming Calder came flooding back the moment I began reading this. Just a few pages in and I already had tears in my eyes. A few pages after that and they were streaming down my face. Shivers ran down my body as the magnitude of what was happening to these characters truly hit me.
I read chapter after chapter completely overwhelmed with the raw emotions this story evoked. This isn't a story you just read, this is a story you experience with all your heart and soul. You live it. It takes over your senses until the world fades away and there's just you and the words you're reading.
"Sometimes I imagine the rain is him. If I'm alone, I turn my face into it and I can feel him. I'll never have a place where I can visit him, and so I'm with him in the rain."
There's a particular moment -- and you'll know it when you get to it -- that is, honest to God, one of the most powerful moments I've ever read in a book. I just broke down sobbing. But they were tears of happiness. It was literally the most beautiful scene you can imaging and I was ugly sobbing. There was noise. The way it was written with that powerful build up, the momentum of the rising intensity, and the way all the pieces of the story fell into place leading up to that one heart-stopping moment was incredible.
But that wasn't it. The more I read, the more these moment would just hit me over and over again. I read this whole book cover to cover with my hand over my heart, and every few pages I'd just take in a deep calming breath. I clung to every word and every few pages, I'd read a particular line and tears would just pour down my face again. It was the most amazing experience and I loved every single word.
Just to be clear though, these were not tears of sadness. They were literally just a result of my deep emotional attachment to these characters. More than anything, this story makes you believe in the healing power of love. Calder and Eden's undying love for each other got them through the worst life could throw at them. I'd seen them grow up, I'd seen them fall in love, I'd seen everything they sacrificed for each other, I'd seen them face the ultimate devastation, and I saw them survive. I saw their love survive.
"I never stopped loving you. I never will. Ever."
I haven't mentioned anything about the plot in this book on purpose because this story is the second half of Becoming Calder and you shouldn't know anything other than that before you start it. What I can say though is that everything that I wanted to see happen was shown. In every way, this is a complete story.
This is a book you'll want to read as slowly as you can to appreciate every single beautiful word at the same time as wanting to read it as fast as you possibly can to find out what happens next.
I finished the story overflowing with happiness and I sat there for the longest time just absorbing the story, reliving every moment from the beginning in Becoming Calder to the breathtaking conclusion in Finding Eden. Looking back on the entire story, I realize just how carefully planned it truly was. Everything -- every last detail -- happened for a reason. Every single piece of their journey had a purpose and it all came together to create one of the most powerful and captivating stories you can imagine.
Mia Sheridan's writing is exquisite. Even though I have loved all her books, there's no doubt for me that this is her best story yet. I couldn't put it down even for a minute. I have quotes highlighted on nearly every page and the emotional hangover of the century. Her words build you up, they break you down, and then put you back together better than you ever were to begin with.
Becoming Calder was easily a 5+ star book. Everything about it -- from the writing, to the story, to the emotions, to the message -- was EPIC. But looking back on the complete story from both books with the perspective and experience of having read Finding Eden, there's no doubt in my mind that together, this is worthy of 6 STARS. It just went above and beyond. There is literally nothing else like this out there. It's one of the best series of the year in every possible way. Everyone should read it!!!
Calder and Eden's powerful, captivating, and epic love story is forever imprinted on my heart. It's a story I know I'll re-read many times over and still never get enough of it. It's absolutely unforgettable.
Rating: 6 STARS!!! (Contemporary Adult Romance)
Grayson's Vow tells the story of how one moment in time changed two people's lives forever. Kira Dallaire is a young 22 yer old beautiful woman who has been told what to do all of her life by her Father who is as crooked as they come. She was expected to marry a man her father has been mentoring but one night she caught him with two different women, in their hotel room, and they were all drunk and high. There was a big write up in the papers and her father told her to go overseas and act like she went to rehab! She went overseas alright -to Africa to help the unfortunate. Now Kira is back and her father wants her to do everything he tells her to, including to still marry the loser who is now a big lawyer.
Kira refuses to go back and the only money available to her is money left to her by her grandmother that stipulates she has to be married to receive it. While in the bank one day she sees a man that is being turned down for a loan because he went to prison for 5 years, due to her father! He is trying to revolve his family vineyard. He was innocent, did the time, and now he is paying for it in all ways.
When Kira goes out of the bank she sees him standing there and she forms a plan- why not marry and give him half the money! Because that is how she is! She wants to give a homeless shelter she has worked at a big donation as well. Kira just wants a simple life helping people and she sees that helping Grayson is the right thing to do.
Kira approaches Grayson Hawthorn to see if he is willing to make a deal with her and they both walk away after 6 months free and clear. At first he can't believe she would do this. Things get real once they go to her lawyer who holds the trust. Then they get married! Then she hands him a check for $750,000.00!
This book is so good and once you start reading it you will not want to put it down! There are so many sad and also good things that happen out of this union. The problem is when they actually fall in love, they also keep some deep secrets that will threaten everything they have come to mean to each other.
When Grayson is acting like a jerk, Kira calls him a dragon, and when he is mad at her, he calls Kira a witch. Things become complicated and somehow, no matter what happens, they try to weather the storm.
Will things work out-will they both get to do what they wanted to do-will they both be able to come to an understanding that sometimes out of the greatest pain and heartbreak comes unconditional all abiding love? Or will it be too late for them? Read this awesome book!
I gave this book 5*****stars and have added it to my favorite list!
