Eden - Keary Taylor

Oh my goodness this book! I was so confused when searching for this book on Goodreads because it's actually under the name "Eden" evidently it's been revamped into a series since everyone loved it. I don't know if that means the author wrote more or if it was originally longer and she just split it up. Also I love the cover of this edition better, very badass!

 

The MC, Eve, is so badass and tough and all "I can take care of myself", I really love a strong female lead. The only problem I had with her was her confusion over who she loved and really the only reason it bugged me was because I was sure she would choose the wrong one! I also loved the idea behind the story. That in our quest for immortality humans built something that ended up taking us over and destroying our world. This is actually a real fear of mine or really any dystopian setting. I need to stop reading dystopians...or start doomsday prepping. The story is told from Eve's POV so we follow her along as she struggles to keep the small community of people who she considers family alive. Not long after the start of the book three new people stumble upon Eden (the name of the community) one of them being West who has his own secrets, one of which will make Eve rethink her entire being.

 

The book is full of action, never feeling dull or slow and as I've already stated the romantic tension of "whose she going to choose" really had me turning the pages. Overall I feel this book was good both for it's action and for it's romance though I feel that it's a little on the heavier side of Romance but I'm okay with that. I'm pretty excited to pick up the next book!
