Eternal Eden by Nicole Williams
Goodreads Summary: 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.
My Review: This book was one of the best paranormal romance books I have ever read. Of course it was super cheesy and stupid and boy meets girl and it starts out with them not liking each other at all and then BAM! Yeah, super cliché and I knew what was going to happen as soon as I started reading it (with the romance) but I loved it anyways! The romance was super adorable and I lived through it and I am in love with William and he is definitely swoon-worthy!
The plot didn’t really happen until like half way through and I thought I would get bored with the slow pace, but in this book I didn’t and I just enjoyed all of the happiness and tried to absorb it before the plot came in and twisted and ruined everything. The real plot though was super interesting, I thought these “Immortals” were going to be vampires or something but they aren’t and I don’t really know what they are, they share some vampire-like attributes but were pretty original. It was really interesting to read about them, and then the plot twist with the betrothal thing and with another character named Patrick, I won’t include any spoilers but the twists were interesting and I actually didn’t see them coming.
This book was amazing! I cannot wait to read the next two and see what happens with William and Bryn! This book was definitely worth every minute, it absorbed me and made me forget about real life! I was upset when I stopped reading and realized that William is not my boyfriend. Anyway, you can get Eternal Eden on amazon for free here! Read it if you like dumb books like twilight that you don’t want to like but you do anyways. If that applies to you, trust me.
