TBR Review: Eternal Eden by Nicole Williams

Eternal Eden
Kindle Edition, 394 pages
Published March 16th, 2011

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:
Eternal Eden was very disappointing. I’m honestly surprised I finished it, but I believe I read this while stuck at sea with no Wi-Fi so my reading options were limited.

I honestly have nothing positive to say about this book. Not even a little bit positive.

Bryn’s character was annoying, actually, all the characters were. None were realistic or anything. Everything felt so forced it made me want to chuck the book at the wall. However, it’s on my kindle and I love my kindle so that didn’t happen. Bryn has lost her parents and is awkward but tries to be normal and doesn’t notice when boys like her so that’s Bryn. She somehow falls in…love? With William, even though he stalked her and openly admits to stalking her, and then when he’s forced to leave she tries to “not kill herself” wink wink by walking in freezing cold water and holding her head under until she passes out. But you know, not trying to kill herself…. insert eye roll here. Then Bryn finds herself to be brought into the afterlife, by William strongest of all and yeah. Oh, and there’s an evil von bad guy who is out to tear them apart because he’s all old perv who wants to have sex with someone he knows isn’t his and who is underage. Eeew.

Oh, and the love story. Let me just take a minute to puke over everything. I have never hated a love story more than I did with Bryn and William. They just are so weird. Like nothing in the world matters but them being together. Now, this may sound like a normal YA love story but it isn’t. It’s so not. Bryn and William can’t be separated from each other, the love just takes up the whole story. It’s lame.

Eternal Eden to me this book was nausea and puke-inducing. No thank you.

Nicole is a NEW YORK TIMES and USA TODAY bestselling author who got her humble start dictating books to her parents at the age of three and her big break nearly three decades later when she signed her first publishing deal. She grew up an avid reader and writer who majored in Economics because a Creative Writing degree was lofty and impractical, not to mention a pipe dream. Irony, you wily fiend.

When she isn’t embroiled in a book, she spends her time playing wife and mom to her two favorite people in the world, and referee to their three rescue pets/wildlings. Nicole lives in the Evergreen State on the quieter side, ideal for an admitted recluse who enjoys the diversity of outdoor endeavors the Great Northwest offers.
