I loved Bliss right away. She is such a strong heroine, but also has a softer vulnerable side. She's smart, independent, knows what she wants, and is unwilling to settle. Yes, her stubbornness causes some problems, but it's understandable given the circumstances. My favorite part about Bliss is her passion. Passion for her life, her work, and her love. Her road was not an easy one, but she's fought hard to become the woman that she is and is proud of it. I'm not usually a fan of instalust and I will admit that this pushed my limits, but I thought what developed as a result was so genuine and true that it didn't matter in the end. Bliss and Steven may not have had a conventional love story, but I think it was incredibly relatable.
This book also features some of the funniest and most colorful secondary characters I have ever read. A few you will love to hate and others will have you laughing out loud. There's a good dose of drama and angst, but it fits with the story and only strengthens the relationship between Bliss and Steven. I did get a little lost with all the information about Steven's stunt work and the entertainment industry, but the details painted a really vivid picture of what was going on with our characters. Overall, The Trouble With Eden is a wonderful love story and I look forward to reading more of Leslie's books.
He is in town for the making of a movie. Steven is the man in charge of the stuntmen. He has honed his craft and his body shows the results. They immediately hit it off. These are two single, sexy adults. They are VERY sexual. There is lots of very hot sex going on quite often and if they are not in the middle of the act it self, they are thinking about it. So this story is not for the faint of heart! There are also a lot of "f" words that fit the story line but if it offends you, better pass. This guy is all that and more!! And she is right there with him.
Their lives become part of the movie crew and set. He works every day and she being a free spirit, is able to go to work with him to watch the making of a film. Her passion is writing. So far she is working on a screenplay but she is a beginner and has nothing looked at by others. But she continues to write. Of course, there is the bad sexy actress that just can't seem to get enough attention. Billed as a sex kitten, she can portray it on the screen but in real life she is like a dead fish! The guys may go one time, but no thanks to seconds. She is a rotten apple in the bunch. But she makes for a good storyline.
They seem to fall in love and be great with each other. But then tragedy hits. He wants to throw it all away for her own good. She refuses to allow him to make a choice for her. This story just got better and better as it went along. I really liked all the characters and the storyline. It was fun to see how stuntmen work and how they contribute to a movie. There were some pretty wild parties among the crew but I really think it wasn't anything that doesn't go on. We in the audience just don't see behind the scenes. It is a very good read and I definitely recommend it.
I was not paid for this review. I am not a writer nor do I know one. I am not kin to this author. I am a reader and this is my opinion, nothing more, nothing less. 1/27/18
Steven is a stunt man and hasn't felt the need to settle with one woman, until he sees Bliss. He is doing a movie and that leads to more characters introduced in the book. Two of my favorites are Jack and Nicki. Nicki is Bliss's best friend and Jack is Steven's. They also find love at first sight.
They have their ups and downs as in every love story but this is a complete story. I love how their story does continue in the third book. That being said this does stand as its own book.
“Ironic, that the pleasure of life can trick us into affection, and then need. Sun, food, sex, everything we enjoy we can enjoy too much.”
“I’m a closet singer. I’m pretty much unmatched in the shower.”
“The sky is rouged with pinks and scarlet shades. It’s as if this moment in time was staged for maximum effect. As if we’re in a painting…”
“I see the same smile of his face as I have on mine. It’s as if we discovered the Fountain of Youth, the buried treasure of Sierra Madre and the location of Shangri La.”
“I’ve come to believe people are placed in our lives for a reason. Each a teacher or a student. You either have something to learn from them, or they from you. Many times I find it’s both.”
“No matter how old we are, women love to talk about their boyfriends. It’s hysterical really. If you didn’t know we were in our thirties, you’d swear we were sixteen.”
“He just looks in my eyes. I let the moment be still. Something tells me to let this moment be about more than words. And when it’s about words, to let him speak uninterrupted.”
I am shocked and stunned to see that this was a debut novel for this author, as it was so crisp, well-written, and expertly turned out. I adored everything about it. I cherished the main characters, enjoyed the story, and was totally entertained and absorbed by the plot from beginning to end. The story was relevant, insightful, observant, believable, humorous, smartly written, and totally enjoyable. I cannot wait to start book 2.
