I don’t know what makes a great love story. Is it that instant attraction when boy meets girl? The passionate kisses and the fairy-tale ending? Or is it a lifetime of tragedy, paid in advance, for a few stolen moments of pure bliss? The pain and the suffering that, in the end, you can say are worth it for having found the missing piece of your soul?
The answer is: I don’t know. I don’t know what makes a great love story. I only know what makes my love story. I only know that finding Cole when I did, when Emmy and I were running from a nightmare, was the only thing that saved me. That saved us. He was more broken than I was, but somehow we took each other’s shattered pieces and made a whole. If that is what makes a great love story, if that is what makes an epic romance, then mine…ours is the greatest of them all.

M. Leighton has done it again. She creates a character and their story completely steals away my heart. She is by far my absolute favorite author. She appreciates bloggers and their reviews as much as I appreciate her stories. I know without a doubt as soon I start reading one of her books; I have fallen in love within the first chapter. Wild Ones was my first book I read from her and if you haven’t done so, I highly recommend reading it and the whole series.
Eden, what an odd name for a girl? But I like it. I hate seeing the same names used over and over again. What makes the perfect love story? Is it the brokenness between two people that make them whole once they unite? Is starting off perfect, enduring tragedy, having your heart broken anything that entices you? All I can say is that this is not your typical love story. But it is the story of Eden & Cole and I promise you will love it no matter how you like your endings.
Eden Taylor did not grow up with the perfect family. She is trying to be the perfect mom for her Emmy and keep her safe from the nightmare they left. Is she looking for salvation or just security? Both Eden & Emmy have endured pain and suffering that are trying to let go. But can that fear ever dissipate?
Cole Danzer has endured his own pain and suffering. Will he able to accept his past and move forward? Can two broken souls make a whole? Will he find in Eden what he didn’t know he was missing?
On a side note, I highly recommend counseling for those who have suffered pain, tragedy, abuse, and/or the loss of a loved one. Most people think they can cope on their own, but there are so many good support systems to help you out in anyway. In the perfect world, no one thinks they need help and they can deal with their own problems. In this story, Eden was made for Cole and vice versa. Finding Cole is what saved her.

Possessed of an overactive imagination from early in her childhood, Michelle finally found an acceptable outlet for her fantastical visions: literary fiction.
