Blurb: Eden Gray is traumatized from his rape eighteen years earlier and the part Sean Keller played in it isn’t easy to forget. Eden goes from happy to desperate within minutes, never sure how long a good mood will last. But he knows that he loves Sean with all his heart and wants to lay his ghosts to rest permanently.
Sean feels the same way. He treads on eggshells around Eden, afraid for his mental health and mindful of his suicide attempts. He has a hard time dealing with his guilt, and hates that it overshadows his love for Eden more often than not.
Something needs to happen to let them connect and bond permanently and bring them into the light…
Review Finding Eden is a very well-written and character driven love story. Such a gripping and heartfelt story of two men with secrets in their past and a love/hate relationship that is to die for.
In Finding Eden, we follow Sean and Eden after Eden’s trial for murdering Paul, Sean’s best friend. We also find out that it isn’t the happy-ever-after we had thought we got from Into the Light, the first book. Eden still hasn’t adjusted well and after he killed Paul is even more distraught. Sean is handling Eden the best he can with love and attention, but Eden’s mood swings are about more than even Sean can deal with. Sean even sometimes still worries that Den hasn’t forgiven him.
Even after finding out Sean’s involvement in Eden’s rape eighteen years before, I can’t help but just fall for Sean. Eden, even after all he has been through, I’d really like to slap the crap out of him. So, does Eden finally heal? Do Sean and Eden finally make their relationship work? Is Sean’s love for Eden worth giving up his career and home? I am not telling. You will have to read the book. I promise you will want to read the first three, too, so might as well buy them all now.
I highly recommend this book for anyone that loves a very intense romantic love story. Several twists and turns, really hot sex scenes, a little light BDSM , men in uniform, and very well put together characters. I just swoon for Sean.
