I have been looking forward to this book to see where Tucker and Adrianna story goes after she left him at the airport. Book one was an emotional ride but this book was more emotional, if you ask me.

It broke my heart when Tucker was sending messages to Adri but she wasn't responding, I just wanted her to write back saying she made a huge mistake but when she didn't, I knew people will hurt for poor Tucker. He is such a sweet and adorable guy with a very, very sexy bedside manner if you know wha

I had been waiting for more of Tucker and Adriana from the second that I finished Waking Up. The Healing Hearts series is the story of two broken, seemingly opposite individuals, who help to, much like the name suggests, heal each other. Where we got a majority of Adri’s story in Waking Up, this book was focused more on Tucker. We got his background and his demons, and it was done incredibly well.

To the outside world, Tucker Stavros has everything as a famous actor. On the inside, he’s dealing w

~~~~~~~~~~Dee's ★★★★★ Review~~~~~~~~~~

The love story of Adriana & Tucker is an excellent example how one person, no matter how lost and broken, can affect others like a stone cast into the lake, the ripples expand and touch the lives of others who then reach out and transform still more. Such was the effect Tucker had on Adriana and all of her tight little group of friends.

Relationships changes people whether good or bad. The biggest hurdle to any relationship is when one part

This is book 2, YOU NEED TO READ: Waking Up first.

This was a new author for me and I was excited to find a new BBF, and I found a few!!
There are sooooo many great characters in this story.

This is a story of soul mates, best friends, heartbreak, new love, fear, hatred and sooo much yummy hotness.

The main characters are Adriana & Tucker. Tucker is a Hollywood star that needs to get away from his life for awhile and Adriana just happens to have a big ol'

This is the perfect follow up to Waking Up. Tucker leaves , Adri decides to break contact , both are miserable and here we go again !!

As much as Adri believes she is doing what is best for Tucker she is really just causing damage that they may not be able to overcome. She is falling fast and hard for Tucker so why deny yourself that chance at love again ? As we know from book 1 Adri is struggling with her issues and this story is her finally making the choice to get back to living for herself an

This was a continuation of Tucker and Adriana’s love story. At the end of book 1, Adriana makes a shocking decision that hurts both her and Tucker. But a near-tragedy has brought them back together again but will that do some good or cause more damage?

I felt so bad for Tucker while reading his POV. He was so in love with Adriana and she kept shutting him out. I just wanted to reach in the book and give him a hug. I did not like the way Adriana treated Tucker. I mean I get why she thoug

I really enjoyed Waking Up and thought it was a good debut, but Eyes Wide Open exceeded my expectations. I was hooked from the first page, and finished in a few hours. Waking Up, which should be read first, gave us Adri's story and her journey to heal. Eyes Wide Open is more about Tucker's journey, and it is such an emotional trip. My heart absolutely broke for him.

One of the things that I most enjoyed about this book was getting the POV of so many characters, not just Tucker and Adri. They eac

Yet again another amazing book by Renee Dyer!! I was so excited to start the second book in the healing hearts series and see what was going to happen between Tucker and Adrianna. After Tucker is left heartbroken when Adrianna fails to respond to any of his messages, I really thought that was going to be it for the two of them. Adrianna was also devastated not having Tucker with her but she was too afraid of getting her heart broken again to be with him. Grams was convinced that everything would ...more

This book starts where Waking Up left off. Tucker is back on the set and Adrianna has been out of contact with him for four weeks and he is heart broken. He knew when he turned back at the airport and she was already gone that was the end. Adrianna thought losing Alex was bad but the pain in her heart with Tucker gone is so much worse. She wasn't ready to give up Alex and knew she had to let Tucker go. Until one day she receives a phone call from Tuckers grandmother and she tells Adrianna she do ...more

Just when you don't think Renee can outdo herself, she proves you wrong! With each book I read, a yearning for more from Renee stirs more and more. She has a way of bringing characters to life, and such a varied cast of characters she has!, but she also knows how important details are. It's those small things that make you forget you're reading, that suck you into another world causing you to feel, causing you to live the story. Renee definitely has a talent for this. The characters are all so w ...more

Tucker is back! I've been dying for this book and I was lucky enough to get it before it was release!
I fell for Tucker in Waking Up but omg I forgot how much I loved him! He completely blew my mind in Eyes Wide Open.

The story captures you from the start and you don't want to put this book down for one second!
Adriana has become a stronger woman in this book! She takes a chance and has learned it's time to move away from the past and look at the future.

This story quickly became one of my favorite reads of the year. In the first book, we get Adrianna and Tucker, meeting, knowing they are attracted to each other, yet both so broken they don't know how to react or move forward. In Eyes Wide Open, we get the story from where the first book left off. I could not put this one down. With so many different emotions from all of the characters, you really feel what they feel. There are so many twist and turns that when you think you are over the shock o ...more

wow this book has so many emotions! one minute your hating loving crying awe moments!! it was wonderfully written its jumps betweens characters an sometimes when authors do that u get confused not with Renee u knew who was talking at all times!!

adriana feels she don't deserve to be happy or that if she gets to close to Tucker she won't be fair cause she still feels for her husband that pasted away.
so she keeps pushing tucker away until she gets a unusual phone call...

In all honesty, I didn't go in reading Eyes Wide Open with excitement. I started the first book, Waking Up and was a little disappointed with the grammar and layout, so I skipped chapters and shot to the end so I could start book two. By the third chapter, I was so confused I had to go back and finish book one properly and - guess what? I got engrossed in the story.

I received this for an honest review. First I will say Please don't read this without reading the first one. This was the perfect second book. It takes place where we left off with the first one which is AWESOME!!! The wonderful thing about this book is that it has multiple POV's more than just the two main characters which is always nice to see!! An enjoyable read wonderful to read this through Tuckers eyes!! This is definitely one once you pick it up you wont want to put it down.

This is book two in the series. It continues where book one ends.

Wow. This is a fantastic read. I so love Adriana and Tucker. So many great characters in this book to love. I'm really not gonna say much about the storyline. I'm just gonna say this is a must read. The twists and turns had me gripped.

I can't recommend these two books highly enough. If it was made into a movie I'd love it too. If your looking for an emotionally charged book then get 1-clicking these now. You won't regret it.

From a young age I've had a love of writing, starting with a doodle pad at age four that soon turned into journals and later computer documents. Poetry became short stories and short stories became novels. Although I'm surrounded by males all day having three sons, a husband, and a hyperactive chocolate lab, I still find time to be all woman when I escape into the fantasy of reading and writing ro ...more
