The story was good. I thought it was a little slow to began with. I also think the main guy, Dr Grant was very odd. Just the way he described himself and the way he thought about Eden. It was very odd.. I don’t think it was my cup of tea but the story was good. On to book 2!
This is the first book I’ve read by this author and I’m hooked. I’m so grateful I have the next installment of the series already downloaded.
The story moves quickly and while it is a story of forbidden love, it is truly about the process of healing. The H and h are both very likeable, the best friends are fantastic and the open door sex scenes were easily skimmed.
I read this book on one sitting and found it enjoyable and entertaining.

This was a brilliant story from the get go, and one that you will not want to miss! Surviving Eden is Book 1 in the Surviving Series from author Virginia Wine. This author has an amazing writing style that’s easy flowing, captivating and well developed characters and plot lines.
This story had many twists and turns that had me on the edge of my seat. But also whole following along with Eden & Theo’s story I was taken along on an emotional rollercoaster that was so raw and real that you felt as though you were living the emotions yourself. Theo & Eden have a chemistry that is hot, intense and immediate. With the tragedy that has struck both Theo & Eden life previously they have both been going through life with this impacting their day to day lives. Will they be able to find themselves with the help of each other & manage to live a new life together?
I cannot wait to read the rest of this series, if it is anything compared to this one then I will not be disappointed, and neither will you!
Don’t miss this read!

Surviving Eden is about loss, grief and love. Theodore Grant is a psychologist helping Eden deal with her grief over losing her family. While I found the characters interesting, I would have liked more of their back stories. I felt their back story was just thrown in to the story. I like the attraction between the two, but given the possible fall out that could happen, I expected Theo to put up more of a fight. The story was well written, the story line was good and I will read the next book in the series, as I really liked Alex.
Surviving Eden by Virginia Wine
Surviving Eden is a fabulous forbidden love romance read! It’s the first book in the Surviving Series and also my first book by this author but it certainly won’t be my last. This book had me feeling all kinds of emotional from beginning until the very end. I was swept up in Theo and Eden’s story right from the get-go and I ended up reading their story in one sitting as I couldn’t bring myself to put it down.
The storyline flowed seamlessly and there was so much detail that it felt as if I was right there alongside these characters. I was able to connect with them right from the start which really added to my reading experience. I hope to read more about them in the future!
I can’t wait to dive into my next read by this incredible author! And would absolutely recommend this book to others!
Surviving Eden is the first book in the Surviving Series by Virginia Wine. If this first book is any indication of how the whole series will be then I’m sure that this will be a series that I read many times.
Dr Theo Grant is a highly renowned psychiatrist. With a very difficult childhood behind him, he himself would be a psychiatrist dream to work with. His past has led him to believe that he’s not lovable and he has no intention of settling down with one woman. That is until he met Eden Barnett.
Eden is the adopted daughter of Theo’s best friend Matthew Barnett. When Matthew and his beloved wife are tragically killed, Eden becomes Theo’s patient to help her deal with her grief.
To say that sparks flew when these 2 met would be an understatement. They are both drawn to one another and their connection is fierce.
Can Theo go against one of the very cornerstones of his profession and have a relationship with his patient? Will helping Eden also help Theo deal with the demons from his own past? Can they both heal each other?
In order to answer these questions I would urge you to read this book. These 2 characters are amazingly well written. You, as the reader, get to see right into their souls.
Thankfully, I also have books 2 and 3 on my kindle just waiting for me to devour. I can’t wait to see what Virginia Wine has in store for Theo and Eden and also for their friends and family members who will take centre stage in the rest of this series.
In the Surviving Series, Surviving Eden is book one by Virginia Wine is a contemporary romance book. This is my first book by this author, and it will not be my last. The characters are fully developed, and the story line is so close to be true that I felt like I was with the characters watching while on Eden’s shoulder. There are some scenes that be a bit explicit for an audience under the age of 18. The story took me on a roller coaster ride of emotions. Eden and Theo both have had accidents in their past that that had them just going through life without meaning. Will Eden be the answer for Theo and vice versa? Or will the accidents in their lives steer clear of each other?
Surviving Eden is book one in the Surviving Series by Virginia Wine. I was intrigued by the blurb of this story, and just knew I was in for a spellbinding read. I love the taboo genre, and this book was a delight to read.
Theo and Eden should never have played with fire. Eden had tragedy strike and Theo was no stranger to loss, either. They were instantly drawn to each other, and although morally wrong, their feelings felt oh, so right. Their love was forbidden, but the need could not be denied, and the ultimate sacrifice was made.
Getting to know Theo and Eden was easy to do as they were so hard to resist. Their story screamed at me to read it. Their feelings were evident and the attraction blindingly obvious. Surviving Eden was emotional, arousing, addictive, splendid. Their journey was fraught with friction, suspense, drama, and those that wanted to see them fail. Their strength was immeasurable, their love unconditional, their story now told. 5 stars.
Surviving Eden was a great 5 star read.
We start out in the past with a heartbreaking scene involving Theo and his family.
We jump ahead to present day, he is now a psychiatrist. When Theo gets a call about a tragic accident involving his best friend and wife the past memories come rushing back to him.
When he sees Eden at the funeral he has a connection with her, he understands her pain. He quickly leaves knowing he needs to get away from her. There is something about her that he can’t get out of his mind, an attraction he knows isn’t right. When fate brings her to his office things take a twist and get even more interesting.
Will these two be able to help heal each other’s hearts? Can they have a HEA?
I really enjoyed this book, I was pulled right in and didn’t want to stop until I was done. I really liked Theo and Eden. Theo was a straightforward man he never led anyone on as to what he wanted in the bedroom, and boy were there some hot scenes. Eden was great as well, she was determined to get answers to her questions no matter what. All of the secondary characters added a great element to the story. I can’t wait to read more from these two and this series.
Surviving Eden by Virginia Wine is the first book in the Surviving series. I had some expectations going in after reading the synopsis and it far exceeded them.
Dr. Theo Grant has dealt with his fair share of pain. He losses his parents and younger sister at a young age. Then loses his best friend. He didnt know when he walked in the door for the funeral his world gets rocked.
Eden Barnett is just starting her life, getting ready to graduate college. But she meets the Dr. and she has no doubts about him.
- There was a lot of stuff happening in this book and it all just worked well and I’m looking forward to the next book and hopefully get an update on these two.View all my reviews
