Good book. I liked both Wade and Tori. Wade is a self-made millionaire. He and his foster brothers were raised by the Edens and he would do anything for them. When he finds out that they sold a piece of land that holds a dangerous secret he is determined to get it back. He doesn't expect the new owner to be Tori, who he had fired from his company several years earlier. He also doesn't expect the heat of an instant attraction. He is surprised when she refuses to sell, even for an insane amount of ...more

Wade Mitchell cancelled his holiday vacation to Jamaica when he found out his foster parents had sold a tract of their land. And he was determined to buy it back. But Victoria Sullivan was equally determined not to sell it, especially to Wade, since the arrogant real estate developer had fired her several years ago. His not believing the accusations against her and firing her put a dent in her ability to trust men. Was Wade’s seducing her another tactic to ge

There is only one thing standing in her way. The infuriating Wade Mitchell has shown up wanting to buy her property right out from underneath her. There

I got this book as a birthday gift from one of my bff.
I liked it. Especially since he came from a one happy family, although he's a foster children. I liked both characters Tory and Wade, and other characters as well. I believe that Xander will have his own story with Rosy. ^^
This book was the first book from Secrets Of Eden Series. The mystery mentioned in this book was not finished right away. I guess that'd be bought little by little by another upcoming books. I just hope Andrea Laurence make

This is the second book of Andrea's that I have read, and also the first book in the Secret of Eden Series. I lately have been doing things, or reading things backwards. Especially book series I seem to read backwards. I read the third book in this series before I even read this one, you can read my review for Heir to Scandal Here. So having read the third book first I thought I would be really confused but luckily I was easily able to follow along.

If you haven't read any of the book's in thi
In Undeniable Demands by Andrea Laurence, Wade Mitchell is a self-made millionaire. He was raised in a foster home by the Edens, and he would do anything for them. So when he finds out that a piece of land they just sold has a dangerous secret, he is determined to get it back no matter what. What he doesn’t expect is that the new owner is Victoria Sullivan, a woman he fired several years ago.

Tori is still hurt about being fired, for she had done nothing wrong to deserve being fired. So when Wade

Years before, Wade and his siblings buried a secret on the property that would hurt everyone involved if it was discovered, so he sets ou

Andrea Laurence is a talented author! Undeniable Demands keeps you reading from the first page to the last. The passion between Wade and Tori is "undeniable." Loved it!

This is the first of a continuity based around the foster children of Ken and Molly Eden, the proud owners of a Christmas Tree farm. With only one child of their own, a girl Julianne, they fostered Wade, Brody, Heath and Xander. Four teenage boys with histories. And apparently they have another secret they share. Something that happened 15 years ago and could ruin all their lives.

The purchase of a piece of Eden land by Victoria Sullivan could be just the trigger to bring that secret to light. Bu
I wait in anticipation for the rest of this series. I love this book. It is my favorite Andrea Laurence book so far.
Wade desperately needs something that Tori has and he really needs all the help he can get in convincing Tori to sell it to him. Tori has good reason in declining Wades offer as she was once employed by Wade until he fired her. I felt so angry at Wade on Tori's behalf as to the reasons why she was fired. Yet I fell in love with Wade and his amazing foster family. So looking forward
4 1/2 in fact.

The beggining of this series was pretty good. I love the love-hate relationship between Wade and Tori. She reminded me Ingrid from Game of thrones.
I wasn't convinced the Tori / Wade romance was true with at least one secret of Eden hanging before them. We never get to see him explain himself fully so maybe it's a big to-do about nothin' or it's deadly serious and Tori's just an idiot for lovin' him anyway.

A secondary weak point in this story is the way Wade and his brothers, some mega-rich and others well-informed, allow their stepparents to become financially strapped to the point they have to sell a part of the farm. I think there would
A pesar de los errores de traducción, la novela es muy buena. Las escenas son super hots y muy bien escritas.
A quick interesting read that actually left me with more questions than answers about the family the story revolves around. Not a fan of anunswered questions in a book but will have to see if there are others in this series.
Tina White
was into the book the first chapter, another one sitting read. Andrea is a premier author. Fiesty, fiery Victoria Sullivan is a wonderful character and Wade was the perfect nemesis for her. Can't wait for Brody, Heath and Zander. Hope all of them get their own book, as well as Julianne.
Hot story. Very well done. Introduced the Eden brothers and sister very well and set up their secret. The chemistry between Tori and Wade was hot hot hot, and their New Years Eve has to be the hottest scene I've ever read. Can't wait to read the next one!
