It is about believing in your destiny and following the path that leads to peace.THIS IS THE SECOND PART, AND CONCLUSION, IN A TWO-PART SIGN OF LOVE SERIES INSPIRED BY AQUARIUS (BECOMING CALDER SHOULD BE READ FIRST). New Adult Contemporary Romance: Due to strong language and graphic sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.
Unlike book 1, book 2 hit the ground running. I didn’t have to wait for things to develop because it picked right up from where Becoming Calder ended.
The floods came and it looked like Eden was the only survivor from the compound. She found Shelter with a family whose patriarch was looking to make amends. It’s there that Eden began to build her inner strength. She didn’t have Calder to depend on, so she had to start living for herself and she did. Eden began to work and make money, she began to learn how the outside world operates and she began to find her own voice.
Three years after she finally started rebuilding her life, she learned that she wasn’t the sole survivor but that her love, Calder, made it out alive. Their reunion was bitter sweet because they had both built a life independent of each other. The question now was “Do they fit in each other’s life now?”
I really appreciate that this author made sure this book flowed exactly like book 1. I was never in doubt of the Eden and Calder’s intentions towards each other. I knew what they had would endure. What I especially loved was the methodical addressing of all the questions and background issues that were presented in book 1. I kept saying “oooh, that’s why!” as the past was unfurled in this book. I like that this book addressed past present and future together without confusing the reader. I like that each character found out about their past and made their decisions about who they wanted to be in the future.
Finding Eden was emotional, it was sweet and it was very satisfying. I love Love and I got that in spades here. Mia Sheridan is one of my favorite authors in the genre, rivaling only Colleen Hoover. I have never read a book by here and felt let down. Her books always make me feel hopeful and joyous because Love always wins. This book was full of irony as well. It’s was a big train of cause and effect. At the end of this story, I smiled and nodded my head. It was good book and series! The only thing I didn’t get was Xander’s love story but the fact that I know he got love will have to be enough for me.
I highly recommend Mia Sheridan as one of the best New Adult writers because you will always leave a happy reader.
