Bark's Book Nonsense
Logan has spent most of his life looking for his soul mate. When he was a child she was his playmate and best friend that only he could see. But when he turned ten she was taken from him and “reborn”. Logan vowed to spend the rest of his life looking for her, and as he grew and dreamed about her he realized she was the only woman he would ever truly love.

Awww, so romantically sweet.

Flash forward twenty seven years and Logan’s now a rich, successful businessman and his lifelong search comes to
Previously published on my blog:

Across Eternity was a fairly pleasant read for me. After finishing it in a few hours (it’s fairly short – only about 300 pages), I immediately wrote this review.

The main problem I had with reading the book were all of the grammatical errors. To normal people (yes, apparently I am not normal), the book’s typos would be easily forgiven. But I’m a grammar freak. Every time I stopped at a misspelled word, a misplaced apostrophe

I am so excited I was able to read an arc copy of Across Eternity by Aris Whittier. I was really intrigued by this story. After reading the first few chapters I was unable to put this book down. I was so drawn into the story that I had to see what happened next. This is a love story that pulls at your heart. I was balling in more than one place.

I persevered to the end but found this book really sickly sweet and repetitive. Perhaps I am just not romantic enough!

One love for all your lives. The concept is so beautiful, so intriguing and is what made this book incredible and unique. Once I’d started, I just couldn’t stop reading. It was another of those so-beautiful-it-actually-hurts books, and I loved every minute of it.

Logan first met her when he was three, before she was born – well, born in this time, at least. No one else could see her, because she was his, and he was hers and it had always been that way. It all changed when he was ten, because she

Logan and Amber are destined to be together. They come together each time they are reincarnated. Before Amber was born this time, she was Logan's constant childhood companion. After she left to be born, Logan made it his mission to find her again. But Amber doesn't remember anything from before this current reincarnation. This is the story of their current meeting in time.

This is a very romantic love story, based on the idea of destined love repeating through time. It was a very sweet read.

So okay, My friend Debbie Robinson recommended this book. Before I continue...curses!!!!
The humanity.
I cried. A lot. Yes, this book is not for the faint of heart. If you like a sweet, uncomplicated HEA, then this book is not for you. It is a love story, but ugh...

Any who, I'm trying not to give anything away, other to say it is a beautifully, heartbreaking love story.
Logan remembers his soul mate through his lifetimes. After 37 years, he finally finds her. Amber.

Once Amber sees him, that's it.
Kristin (Kritters Ramblings)
From first glance, this book reads as a love story that is at first sight, deep and life-changing, but upon further investigation the heart of this book is a matter of debate - reincarnation. First, let me express that I wasn't quite sure about this whole reincarnation thing as I was brought up that beyond your one life that you live there are two options - Heaven and Hell. Now that I studied religion in a school setting and I hold a minor in the study of religion - I respect the idea of reincar ...more

What if you only had one love for all of your lives? What if you keep meeting again and again during each reincarnation from Roman times to present? How would you react? How would you explain it to the other person who is completely innocent of it all?
Across Eternity answers these questions and more. Logan Richards met Amber when he was three and she had yet to be born this time around. She was his waitress and they felt an immediate “knowing” that they kinda sorta knew each other. But they had

Across Eternity is the story of Amber Lewis, a twenty-something waitress. One night she waits on Logan Richards, a wealthy, successful and smart thirty-seven year old man. Over the course of twenty-fours they fall madly in love. Logan seems familiar to Amber and he's desperate to get her to remember why.

I think this book had a good plot outline for the most part, it just needed a lot more story and character development. There was too much telling me the story instead of showing me the story. I

I am so thankful that this book was recommended to me because I'm afraid I might never have found it if it wasn't for that and I'm beyond thankful I did.

The premise behind this story pulled me in right from the beginning. Two souls bound together through multiple lifetimes lived and finding each other in a current one. It was well written, the characters were well developed and it pulls at your heartstrings and never stops pulling right up until the very end.

This is an emotional read, so those

Across Eternity is a bittersweet love story about star-crossed soul mates who have spent many lifetimes together. After our intrepid hero spends his entire thirty-seven years searching the globe for his one true love, they finally reunite only to have this lifetime cut short. I've never read a love story centering around the idea of reincarnation, and I found it to be a unique and interesting premise. I really enjoyed the deep connection that Logan and Amber share, and ca

Goodreads book blurb

Born a genius; education, wealth, and prestige came easy to Logan Richards. Actually, there wasn't much that Logan couldn't learn or acquire. However, he knew there was more to life than money and power. Logan was determined to find the woman who he'd dreamed of his entire life and know what it was like to love her before he died.

I would like to see this as a movie is what I thought.

It’s what you dream about, isn’t it, love that is so strong it lasts for eternity. In this case love lasted and travelled across time. Logan had waited a very long time for his love to be realised and oh what a love that was. Logan was completely and utterly in love with Amber and after finding her it didn’t take long for his love to be reciprocated, romance to blossom and deepen and become one of those everlasting loves which m

"Remember, anything is possible." Those are Logan's words to Amber, shortly after he meets her in the fancy restaurant where she works.

Yes, anything is possible. It is possible that two souls meant to be together, continuously find one another, time after time. That even death does not destroy the connection the two souls have to one another. Death simply disrupts their time, until they can be together again. That is what happens between Logan and Amber.

I feel extremely lucky that Aris Whittier asked me to review her book Across Eternity, and that I had a chance to read this amazing book. As soon as I read the summary, I was sold immediately and once I started reading I couldn't put it down.

This book is about love, love, love, love! Eternal and unconditional love.

(Review was originally posted on Alexa Loves Books)

To be frank, the reason that Across Eternity really blew me away was because, going into it, I didn't know what to expect. When I first read the synopsis, I thought interesting. But then, thinking about it, I was really of a mind to believe that it was going to be your typical romance novel so I didn't go into it expecting something new and different from what I've read before.

This book deserves the highest of praises from me, as it went so far

Do you believe in a soulmate? I do, I believe my husband is mine. He completes my heart and I truly would feel lost without him. What will happen when one of us dies? Will we meet again someday in Heaven or in another life?

This book has a brilliant theme and great reading. I was surprised by this romance and the way it was laid down on the pages. It is based on a theme of re-incarnation or the existence of more than just one life that hasn’t been overdone yet. This author picked a great theme, one that many adults wonder about and would love to read.

I enjoyed many things about this book. First, I liked the unwavering devotion of Logan. He was a man of strength and determination as well as patience. His persistence in finding his love was touching. While I, myself, do not believe in reincarnation, I do believe that we existed before this earth and that we continue on after this life. I really do believe that love can last an eternity and you are lucky if you can find and make a life of love and devotion with someone that will be fulfilling t ...more

From my blog:

When Logan Richards was just a small boy, a girl suddenly appeared to him. Not an imaginery friend, but, a kindred soul who was always at his side. No one else could see this girl, or even knew that she existed. But, for Logan, she was his best friend and constant companion. He knew, even at his young age, that she was his soulmate. Years later, during adolescence, things changed. The girl told Logan that she was going away. It was time for her to be born into the real world. And, o

While I reading the synopsis for this book, Across Eternity by Aris Whittier, I had this slight feeling of deja vu as I thought it was highly similar to another book about reincarnation, My Name Is Memory by Ann Brashares. I was proven wrong when I began to read this book.

Across Eternity is a beautifully written love story revolving around two soul mates who cross paths in every lifetime. Logan has spent most of his current life waiting for Amber. He sees versions of her in his dreams but never imagines that he will find her working in one of his restaurants. Their initial meeting made me laugh.
