THIS IS THE FIRST PART IN A TWO-PART SIGN OF LOVE SERIES INSPIRED BY AQUARIUS. THE SECOND PART, FINDING EDEN, WILL RELEASE SIMULTANEOUSLY. New Adult Contemporary Romance: Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18
This book follows Calder and Eden over a span over years. The first time Calder sees Eden, she is introduced by Hector (cult leader) as "the Blessed One". She was about 10 years old, Hector told his congregation that she would be his bride and stand by his side, just as soon as she turned 18 of course. You know he had to keep it all respectable and everything.... nothing creepy there or anything (gag). Calder has a beautiful heart even as a kid, always doing the right thing. He is a hard worker, and loves his family beyond measure. Eden is an innocent child, scared beyond belief, not allowed to associate with the other children with her being the "Blessed One" and all that and the bag of chips. They catch each others eye several times though the years but their friendship really blossomed when she turned 17. When I say blossomed, I mean fireworks!!! They start meeting at a secret spring and things heat up 1000 degrees or so. They decide they love each other, but they know Hector would kill Calder and punish her, so they will never be together. See mini-series worthy.
The twists in this book had me gasping, my water works were going full force. My heart was not only going out to Eden and Calder, but a lot of the secondary characters. Like Calder sister, she melted my heart. Mia did a beautiful job, what more can I say.... It was epic.
