Fissure by Nicole Williams

Book Description: 

Patrick Hayward’s never been a one woman type of guy, that’s why he never dates just one. However, still reeling the loss of the one woman he took a chance on falling in love with to his older brother, Patrick is enrolled—sequestered, if you asked him—at Stanford in hopes of breaking him out of his months long, beard growing, rootbeer chugging, hygiene impaired, funk.

Something breaks when a certain Emma Scarlett storms into his life his first week on campus as he’s suntanning and cat calling when he should be in class. Emma sees through his act and calls him out like she’s seen his kind a million times before, but Patrick knows he isn’t one of a million, he’s one in a million.

Intrigued by this fascinating creature that is ignorant to his charm, surrounded by four older brothers who look at Patrick like he’s a bug they could squish, and dating the same guy for the past six years who gives new meaning to the term territorial boyfriend, Patrick gravitates to her, knowing she’s everything he shouldn’t fall for.

So, of course, he can’t help himself.

Forcing the stars to realign and slapping fate in the face, Patrick takes matters into his own hands and finds a way to wrangle his way into Emma’s life at every chance. As Emma begins to open up to him, he’s about to discover she’s thwarted by as many secrets as he is.

But hers are the kind that make you want to keep your light on at night.

Patrick never could have imagined a more unhappy ever after for himself than the one he's about to face.
Christina's BookReview
AHHH! what can i say about Fissure?!

I literally feel high on Patrick! :-) Gah I missed him!

If you thought William and Bryn's story was incredible then prepare for Awesomeness! How can you not when our main man here is Patrick FREAKING SEXY Hayward! Okay Okay on to my review....

The book picks up a month after United Eden. Patrick has turned into a shell of himself after seeing the women he fell in love with marry his older brother. You would think Patrick was a jealous fool, but he's far from that. He's happy for William and Bryn but it doesn't stop his heart from hurting. After the Hayward men interfere and bring him out his "funk" Patrick is sent to the world of mortals in their 20s. College.

After slacking off and being called out on it by a girl with the "sexiest" legs he's seen Patrick stumbles upon Emma. Little does he know that Emma will be his other half in all ways he didn't see coming. When Emma seems to call him out on all his "crappy lines" Patrick can't help but be intrigued with her and little by little comes to terms that he is truly and utterly in love with her. Now if only things would be that easy....

Enter Ty Steele. Emma's incredibly despicable boyfriend. From the first line you know that this guy is the devil incarnate. From his way of speaking to her in public and the "volleyball bruises" Emma hides. Unfortunately Emma is good at hiding and Patrick trusts that she wouldn't lie to him. So throughout the book we have to see a scared Emma defending her terrible "boyfriend" and pushing Patrick away. I swear I wanted to wring her neck every time she refused Patrick's help. I wanted Patrick to show her that he was invincible, unfortunately we don't get to see that in this book.Patrick tries every which way to show her he loves her but each advance is blocked by Ty which is then blocked by Emma. After being fed up Patrick finally lays it all out and is rewarded, FINALLY, with a very much in love Emma. Unfortunately Ty isn't so easily accepting of that.

Cut to the chaos in the book and then ending (I won't ruin it. Read and find out.)...

I LOVED LOVED finally being able to see more of the Hayward brothers! Gah, i missed them! I squealed when they finally made their appearance! :-) I can't wait to see what happens next in The Patrick Chronicles! BUT PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE don't put our Patrick in orange, Nicole! I just couldn't bear it. :-)

I hope in Fusion we are able to see more of the Hayward's and the Immortal world. I think Emma will be a great Immortal! Emma and Patrick's story has so much potential that three books would suffice to cover it. (hint hint) :-)

This book can stand alone but I would recommend that you read the Eternal Eden Trilogy before this, to get the full story!
