^FREE BOOK ☠ Total Eclipse of the Heart ↠ PDF eBook or Kindle ePUB free

I think Zane did a great job with this novel It was a a departure from her previous works that had sex leaping from every page I enjoyed that she focusedon the relationships of the characters. I have to say I put this book and on nook, and I was just checking to make sure it was working read the first couple of words, and did not put down my nook until the book was done Great storytelling by Zane here, the writing is so enjoyable, the story so effortlessly realistic, the characters so incredibly lovely, I thoroughly enjoyed this book I don t even remember reading the blurb on this one, I was recommended this author by a challenge, and though I did not use the book in the challenge, I still got it, and I am so happy that I did I think that there is something special about an author who can have two people fall in love in such dire circumstances Two people who were both in other relationships one which appeared to be perfect, and one which was everything but perfect But with the two main characters, and the entire supporting cast, I found this group of people who came together by chance, but they all helped tell this story of love that came at the most unlikely moment, but an all consuming love much like an eclipse Brooke Alexander has been in a relationship with Patrick Stewart for the past 2 years, and over the last 5 months has come to several realizations Firstly she s not happy in this relationship Secondly, she hates swallowing she always knew that it has been reaffirmed and thirdly Patrick doesn t care about any of those things But Brooke stays in the relationship because from what she can see she won t be better off on her own anyways Brook is a waitress, Patrick a big time lawyer with old money, and the meanest parents in the history of parents At first I thought that entire relationship was little far fetched, but theI got into the story, I came to realize that Patrick didn t mind Brooke working a menial job, because he figured once they got married it would be easier for him to talk her into staying at home Brooke on the other hand, had other ideas in mind for her life She wanted to have a career, and be able support herself, but everything around her just would not line up Until the moment where her entire life changes because she was saved from possible death, but definitely bad injuries by a good guy, a good, handsome, married guy Damon Johnson thought he had everything he could ever want with his wife of four years, good job at a prestigious accounting firm, dream home, and everything in between He and Carleigh were the only married couple among their friends, but they were the happy ones Sure he felt that she sometimes treated himlike a trophy than a partner, and sure she doesn t really like that he spends his free time developing an online dating site called LastGoodMen.com, but hey, just cause your married to someone doesn t mean that they have to agree with everything that you do But he loves Carleighthan anything, and that s what matters most to him Then one day, after only recently reconciling from a major fight about trust, everything changes when Damon saves the lives of both his wife, and stranger, and ends up seriously injured from the accident I loved the slow build of the relationship between Brooke and Damon, and also the way in which they both struggled with their feelings for each other It was clear that there was something between them, and that they were made for each other even though they were with other people I also liked that they both knew that they had made commitments, and those should come before their own selfish feelings Zane has written the kind of story that has you questioning what you think is right and wrong in a relationship, and honestly, by the end I really wasn t sure how I felt but I knew that sometimes our entire lives can be defined by a single moment in time I highly recommend this book, it is such a good book, with such a beautiful story. I will admit, based on Zane s former books and the recommendations of the delightful ladies at my local library, I read this book with the expectation that it would be full of sensual sex But, this wasthan that with a lot less sex than I expected and that s a good thing This book had me explore a few hard issues How to you react to a partner that constantly gets asked by your trifling friends for a turn in bed How do you react when your partner is suddenly disabled while protecting you When is emotional attachment with a person outside your relationship okay Is there power and control in love Where does the line of being an individual in a relationship, making choices affecting one s reproductive health, turn into we decide instead of I decide Is it really ever okay to leave someone for someone else What are our assumptions, as readers, on the race of the characters in a book As this is my first Zane book, I can say that I m interested in reading other books by her The book isn t about sex It s about relationships, friendships, deep soulful caring and the essence of being human vs the trappings of perfection body, status, social economics, etc. I hadn t read any of Zane s books However, after watching and liking her series on Cinemax, Zane s Sex Chronicles, I decided to give her books a try First I listened to The Hot Box great , and then I decided to try Total Eclipse Total Eclipse was fabulous I think those who choose Zane s books strictly for the erotic content may be somewhat disappointed However, those who love a good story will find this an excellent choice The story captured me from the very first syllable, unfolded nicely, and then culminated into a surprise ending Totally awesome This book was amazingly great It was definitely different from what Zane usually writes and that s okay I felt that Patrick was an asshole for sure The way he treated Brooke was just wrong Constantly putting her down and verbally abusing her every chance he gets Then allowing his parents to constantly ridicule her as well all the time But Brooke was too blind to see that he was playing her all along, and she always ran back to him to end up just getting hurt again As for Carleigh and Damon, Carleigh was an idiot to not realize what a great man Damon was Damon was the epitome of what a great man should always be He worked hard everyday of his life He loved Carleigh unconditionally He treated her great and respected her even when her friends were always pushing up on him I don t think any man would have turned down sexual mad him feel like crap advances from a woman..well a real man at least I hated how she treated him after he lost his arm in the accident She made him feel uncomfortable in his own skin But in the end I am glad that him and Brooke got to stay together They deserved each other Life dealt them a bad hand.Ans sure they came together on bad circumstances but I believe if they stood with their original partners they would forever be unhappy. I m not sure what I should have expected, but this wasn t quite it The story was too predictable, unlikeable characters and they were too sappy.The main characters were both flawed and set up to look like victims, but it just came across as sad We were suppose to believe that Brooke was in a verbally abusive relationship because of her weight, low self esteem and insecurity in her job as a waitress But she left her boyfriend and told him and his parents off too many times for this to be believable Then she starts a relationship with this guy Damon who likes to remind you he is the last good man , but yet emotional cheats on his wife He came off as major wimp.But what really did it for me was that Brooke had this major problem with swallowing her boyfriend s cum, but one night with Damon and she got over this major problem she dwelled on throughout the whole entire book and sd some corny line like you could tell that Damon ate a healthy diet wtf The good good was not even detailed, i ve read racier harlequin novels that you can find any grocery store.Haven t read a Zane novel in almost 8yrs I won t be picking up another anytime soon. Good Book I had to keep checking it and making sure it was a Zane book It is not like Zane s other books which were highly sexed I have to admit I was thrown a curve ball at the end I actually went back through the book to see if there were any clues about this ending Nope none The ending alone makes for excellent book club discussions. Wow Talk about a page turner Brooke, who is in a relationship with a lawyer is having self esteem troubles Damon who is married is having trust issues in his marriage In an unfortunate accident they cross paths in a major way They help each other with the after effects of the event in a complicated way This novel touched on disability, support, idealism and what unconditional love truly means. Why oh why do I keep reading Zane books First of all the characters are so one dimensional and vapid the story itself is thin at best and why at the end of the book does Zane feel it necessary to mention that Damon and Brooke are a interracial couple and then in the last three pages make it an issue I don t get it, it s as if she came up with idea at the last minute Also Damon is supposed to be this incredible man the last good man but really he just comes off like a douche Damon s wife makes no sense, does she love doesn t she love him and how doesn t she see her friends coming on to him and who sits around bragging about sex with their husband all the timeI just don t get it Has Zane ever heard of a outline or character research. ^FREE BOOK ⇲ Total Eclipse of the Heart ☊ The New York Times Bestselling Queen Of Erotica Is Back With A Provocative And Sensual New Novel Of Love, Heartbreak, And Total LiberationWaitress Brooke Alexander Is In Love With Patrick Sterling, One Of The Most Prominent Attorneys In Washington, DC On His Good Days, Patrick Is The Man Of Every Woman S Dream On His Bad Days, He S A Complete Nightmare Compassionate And Honest, Damon Johnson Worships The Ground His Wife, Carleigh, Walks On, While She Treats Him Like A Trophy Husband And Views His Life Aspirations As A Joke He S Beginning To Wonder If He Made The Right Decision When He Asked For Her Hand In Marriage When A Tragic Event Brings Brooke And Damon Together, They See Truths About Their Relationships They Never Wanted To Accept Sometimes Two People Meet By Pure Chance, But Sometimes It S A Total Eclipse Of The Heart
