Giveway and Review: Kissing Eden by T.A. Foster

Have you ever thought of taking a vacation alone? I mean step on a plane, check into your hotel, and lie on the beach completely and utterly alone. No? Me either, but then right before senior spring break I got dumped.
Something about break ups makes you do things you didn’t want to do, and try things you didn’t know you were capable of.

That’s how I ended up at the Palm Palace.
That’s how I met Grey.
That’s how my spring break turned into the most unforgettable week of my life.

 What I thought about Kissing Eden

Kissing Eden is what I would call a "beach book". A perfectly sized read for an afternoon or evening. It's not terribly realistic, but it's a fun, sexy, fairy tale.

A few days before Spring Break, Eden Brady's boyfriend, Brett, dumps her. When she follows through with their Spring Break plans alone, she finds out her ex has taken her room, and it being Spring Break and all, the resort is booked. There's only one place that has rooms on the island. She has no choice. Oh, and no luggage too, because the airline lost her bag. 

Eden hangs tough though. She doesn't run back home.  She stays at the almost-dump called Palm Palace and makes the best of being alone. I really liked that about her. She makes friends all over the island, and it doesn't hurt that Grey, the hotel "handyman" is young and good-looking. It doesn't take long for them to get together.

It's a whirlwind romance, all playing out while Grey is fixing the place up for next week's reservations.  Within a few days, she's helping him get the place ready. She's that sort of girl. There are a few interactions with ex'es that end up badly, and it wasn't a sure bet that Eden and Grey could stay together.  After all, it was going to be hard anyway, since he's in Texas and she's not.

And here's where things turn a little bit into a bit of fairy tale. But that's okay, cause I like to escape into a story like that occasionally.

So if you like a quick, easy page-turner, Kissing Eden might be a good choice for you.  I enjoyed it. It wasn't deep. It was just fun.

T.A. Foster once spent a monthlong spring break on South Padre Island, where she soaked in the Texas sun, beach, and learned what real Texas country music is. Sometimes fiction does spring from reality.

She grew up catching rays and chasing waves along the North Carolina Outer Banks and now resides in the state with her adventurous pilot husband, two children, and two canine kiddos.

T.A. has an undergraduate degree in Journalism and Mass Communication from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and a graduate degree in Educational Psychology from Texas A&M University. When she’s not chasing her two-legged and four-legged children or trying to escape for date night, you can find her reading, writing, or planning her next beach trip.
