Everything happens for a reason, they say. And sometimes the reason is you're stupid and make bad decisions. Sleeping with her sister's best friend is one of the dumbest things soon-to-be divorcee Emily Evans has ever done. But she's determined to put it behind her and move on. She's walked away from her cheating husband, managed to make a new friend, and found herself a r ...more

Open My Eyes, Jennifer Collin
Review from jeannie zelos book reviews.
I hadn't reads the earlier book so at first some things like Emily's dislike of Cassie ( Cassette – who names their child that??) puzzled me, but as the story continued that became clear and I felt for her. I suspect there’s more to Cassie's actions too than we see on the surface. Emily, she's running from her problems, and yet they always follow – its something that she knows won't work. She married her ex in an effort to get n

The Evans Trilogy is an entertaining set of stories about the trials and tribulations of the Evans siblings: Charlotte, Emily and Andy. In the first book, Set Me Free, the story focused on Charlotte and Craig's story, now in the second book, Open My Eyes, the reader follows Emily and Ben's story.

In Open My Eyes, Author Jennifer Collin weaves a heartwarming tale of family, friends, and romantic relationships. The reader is easily drawn back into the trilogy as they follow Emily and Ben's story. T

This is the second book in the Evans Trilogy. i did enjoy the story of Emily and Ben but not as much as the first book. I felt this one dragged on more than it needed to. I got kinda tired of the run around with Emily and her deciding to not confront Ben...over and over again. I just loved Ben and how he handled everything (once he finally found out). He stood by Emily even when she wasn't sure what to do and hadn't admitted how she felt about him. This could have been a 4 or 5 star book for me. ...more

This is a very light read and recommended for people who are not frequent readers. Whilst it is written well there wasn't enough connection and pace within the story.

This was ok story and I kind of seen the secret coming a mile away, and I didn't like the end it wasn't really an end, plus I just didn't feel the passion between them Emily and Ben, she can’t trust him, and she is really frustrating and annoying thru the book. There is cast of secondary and supporting characters there is good and then abruptly finished. It had potential but not enough.

I absolutely loved 'Set me free' and I was very much looking forward to the follow-up story, but unfortunately this book didn't manage to steal my heart. I couldn't lose myself in the Emily-Ben love story as much as I did in Charlotte's and Craig's. In fact, I found myself utterly annoyed with Emily halfway through the book. Her behaviour, attitude and lack of decisiveness wound me up so dragged way too long for my liking. Ben seems like such a nice character and he deserves far better ...more

Open My Eyes is the second book in Jennifer Collin's Evans Trilogy. Although it can be read as a standalone its best to read the first book to get a better perspective on the main characters, Emily and Ben. Emily is pregnant and she is reluctant to tell the father, who happens to be a wonderful guy and her sister's bestfriend. It didn't really help that after their one and only night together he says the "L" word and she just ups and leaves for Japan. Now she has to tell him about their little b ...more

The second book in a great series. After reading "Set Me Free", the first in this trilogy, I was hooked on the characters and wanted to know more about Emily and Ben. This book did just that, and it ended exactly how you wanted it, which is wonderful :)

Emily is in a bathroom in Japan, standing on the toilet with an almost stranger, looking at a piece of plastic that will tell her about the rest of her life. Two pink lines- Emily is pregnant. Now what? This book spins the tale of Emily and Ben as

Emily goes in Japan with her brother and his band on tour. The reason that she goes there is to run from her ex and her problems, but there she discovers something that could be another problem in her life. But that is not all, she sleep with her sister’s best friend Ben.
I enjoy reading this book, its makes me feel better, cause I have flu right now. It’s interesting that the twist is on the beginning of the book, which makes me constantly reading to discover what is next. It’s fun and enjoyable

I had a hard time getting into this book because it was a sequel, and I haven't read the book leading up to this one. There wasn't a whole lot of backstory to who the characters were, in order to catch new readers (and old readers) up. I would've loved to have had a bit of context about the night that Emily and Ben thought was so passionate during their introductions. There were also a lot of characters without many distinguishing features, which made it a bit hard to follow.

That being said, I t

I'm really enjoying this book, it's an easy read and a total page turner with great dialogue, plenty of humor, lovable and believable characters.
The protagonist of this second episode is Emily, the artist sister of Charlotte. She's a funny and witty woman with a great passion for painting. While she is trying to overcome her marriage ended badly she commits another serious mistake, spends a night of passion with Ben, the best friend of her sister. Rather than confront him, she avoids him and fol

I didn't love it as much as Set Me Free - but it was still a book I didn't want to put down!! I raced right from the first book to this one, DYING to know what was up with Emily and Ben. And I read maniacally through it! It took me a lot longer to warm up to Emily in this one than it did for me to warm up to Craig in the first one. Whereas Craig had a hidden story and motives yet to be revealed, Emily had to get her "head out of her arse" and see the incredible Ben for how incredible he is. And ...more

While I haven’t read the first book in the series, I was still able to jump right in and highly enjoy Open My Eyes. There were times that I could definitely tell I was missing something from the previous book, but it wasn’t enough to hinder my reading experience. Emily is a sweet character that I was rooting for, even though there was a few times the moseying about got to me. The relationship between her and Ben had me grinding m

I became interested in Emily and Ben’s story in Set Me Free and was excited not only for this story but the glimpses of Charlotte and Craig and their continued journey. I love reading what comes next and got my fix without it overwhelming the story. As for Emily and Ben, love both these characters! I was pulled along, waiting for Emily to share the secret with Ben, see his reaction, and watch as the two work through their hang-ups and come together. An engaging read, heartwarming and full of lau ...more

I liked this one, but maybe not as much as the first book in the Trilogy (Set Me Free). Some of the main character's struggle seemed a little forced, but having never been in that position I have no idea what I would do.

I do love that it's a trilogy, because then you're just building on the characters and that always makes me happy.

Still a quick read and worth it if it's your thing.

Looking for a rollercoaster ride in a book although the dips are shallow they are still packed with excitement. Entertaining read

My only complaint was it took Emily so long to find her backbone again had she faced her demons sooner there might have been a little more romance between her and Ben

Really enjoyed this, this is book 2 and while I really think you need to read book 1 to get the context and background this can be read as a standalone. Romantic and well paced story.

Jennifer Collin writes quirky, and sometimes gritty, love stories about ordinary people dealing with what life throws at them. She lives in Brisbane, Australia, with her husband, two noisy children and a cantankerous cat. She used to party, but now her idea of a good time is an uninterrupted sleep. These days, her characters do her partying for her, and she doesn't necessarily let them sleep.
