Have you ever thought of packing up everything you own and moving halfway across the country?

I’m talking about leaving your entire life behind—friends, family, school—with no turning back. No? Me either, but that was before a week of spring break changed my life forever. Before I did something I never thought I’d do at twenty-two. Before I fell in love with Grey.

Loving Eden by T.A. Foster is the follow up book of Kissing Eden. Although I didn't read Kissing Eden, the author did a pretty good job allowing readers to get a sense of the connection between Grey and Eden. I do, however, wished I read the first book since there were secondary characters who I was not very familiar with. And also I would have like to know a bit more on how Eden and Grey's strong connection b

New to this author, I loved her style of writing. With humour and warmth in every chapter this is a feel good read. It is a second installment but with flashbacks to the previous book I didn't feel lost but will backtrack and read the first one!

This really is about a long distance relationship and how they overcome that obstacle by moving in together but did they rush things? It explores the common issues in taking the plung

Loving Eden was a good ending to Kissing Eden and Grey and Eden’s story. I liked but didn’t love it as much as I did Kissing Eden. There was that spark of first love in Kissing Eden that I really liked that Loving Eden didn’t have. Even with that being said I still liked Loving Eden and was very happy that we get to see were Eden, and Grey’s relationship has gone and I was really happy where it concluded.

Loving Eden is the second book after Kissing Eden. Grey and Eden’s story continues. It was not the happy ending I was expecting. As a matter of fact, the couple seems to hit a rough patch. Eden moved from NC to TX, where she is excited to start her new life with him.

Things are not all sunshine and roses for the couple. They are facing a bunch of problems they never even saw coming. The life that Eden expected is not what the life she is getting. There are time when both Eden and myself

After loving the first book, I plunged into this one right away. It was nice, seeing the characters again, but it didn't sweep me off my feet.

Eden goes living with Grey but they have to face more than an issue and things get strained. That was problem number one. Grey was sullen and cranky 80% of the book. Sure, then he turns all sweet and sexy and all in all his character is really appealing, with its humanity and realness.

The plot was basic and the ending hints at more installments. The only t

Interview with Grey and Eden

When we last saw you two, Grey had made a trip to North Carolina to deliver a lost suitcase. What have you two been up to since then?

Eden: I graduated from Carolina in May and then spent the summer in Chapel Hill with Taylor.

Grey: Same ole, same ole for me. Just been working at the Palm Palace, trying to keep the summer guests happy.

No summer trips across state lines?

Eden: After Grey’s visit we talked on the phone all the time. Hours everyday.

Grey: And texted.

We last saw Grey coming to visit Eden and bringing her luggage that was finally found. From there it moves on to Eden packing up and moving to Texas. Things should have been good from there but we should have been expecting Grey to fly off the handle again.
He jumps to conclusions before even finding out what is going on, which is a pain in the ass. An unexpected visitor throws a monkey wrench in their plans, plus trying to make Grey jealous.

I am so excited that Eden and Grey got another book. I loved Kissing Eden.  Grey is my favorite of T.A. Foster's male characters, and I just can't get enough of him. Not to mention, it is hard enough to find a sequel in new adult contemporary romances that follows the same characters. I loved that we got to go back and visit with Grey and Eden some more. The Story starts out with Eden packing up and moving across the

Loving Eden is the sequel to Kissing Eden by T.A. Foster and continues the story of Grey and Eden. I was excited to get more of these two after reading the first book and was really looking forward to catching up on where they were. While I did like this book, it wasn't as good as the first in my opinion. This one just felt like it was missing something and didn't pack quite the same punch that the first story did.

LOVING EDEN is the continuation of the love story between Grey and Eden in KISSING EDEN. I am huge fan of the “ever after” stories that happen once the guy gets the girl and love is declared. This “ever after” story delivered in every possible way, adding it as yet another favorite book by TA Foster! The beginning of this book starts months later after Eden and Grey’s reconciliation in North Carolina at the end of KISSING EDEN, when Eden is making a cross country road trip to move to Texas to st ...more

Loving Eden was a fun, quick read. I didn't realize it was part two of Eden and Grey's story, but I kind of liked that I didn't see them get together originally. I liked the idea of the story just starting up with what happens after. You do get flashes of how they met and became a couple and everything, but it wasn't too much. When I think about it I think the story, like what I would tell someone about it, it sounds

Much love, affection, and appreciation.

This story starts off after the first book in this series Kissing Eden.
Eden is driving down from Chapel Hill to South Padre to now begin living with Grey at the Palm. She expects nothing to go without a few bumps on the road, but what she doesn't prepare for is a whole ditch, making things definitely go awry. With newcomers at the Palm, out-of-the-blue relatives, and a wedding to attend, will Grey and Eden ever get to live there intended life together?

Have you ever gotten to the end of a romance novel and just wished you had a bit more? I did when I read Kissing Eden, the first book in this series. It left me wondering if Grey and Eden make it - can they resolve the fact that Eden is in one state and Grey in another? In Loving Eden we get their continuing story and it was great catching up with them.

Eden is the predominant voice in this story and it starts with her traveling back to Texas with her belongings to move in with Grey and help run

Why I Picked It Up

I enjoyed the first book in Grey and Eden’s story and I was interested to see how them living together worked out.


Loving Eden starts with Eden moving from North Carolina to Texas in order to start her life post-gradatation with Grey. This installment was more interesting than I would have originally thought that it was. It was filled with drama and new and unexpected characters. There was romance and family drama which really broke up the drama well, as too much of the same

This is the continuation of the story of Grey and Eden. Sometimes making big leaps of faith will pay off and sometimes they don’t. it’s not easy taking the next step with anyone, it’s not all peachy keen like they make it seem on TV and T.A. Foster explores the hardships of moving on to the next level of a relationship.

Reviewed on my blog, Becky on Books.

Loving Eden continues the story that Kissing Eden started, and really is geared toward people who have already read the first book. It's not that anything happens in book two that you won't "get" without having read the first, but you'll already have a better grasp of the characters and where they've been if you do. It's still an enjoyable read; I just think you'll get more out of it if you're already invested in the characters and their HEA.

Great read, though, I actually enjoyed the first book in this series more (Kissing Eden) maybe because the initial falling-in-love stages tend to be a bit more exciting. That being said, I always enjoy reading onwards about a couple--sometimes, I just hate when a story is left untold! Though it was based on an insta-love between Grey and Eden, this story had an interesting turn of events I didn't expect. Actually, for once, most of what I thought would happen, didn't!

I have loved all the books that I have read by T.A. Foster. I also enjoyed the first book to this series, Kissing Eden, but I didn't love this book as much as other books by T.A. Foster.
In my opinion I don't think this book was needed. I think this book could've been added to the first book. That is why I gave the book 3 stars. I think this book was too surrounded around the sex between the two characters that there could've been more to the story to make this book a stronger one.

Loving Eden by T.A. Foster is a New Adult book and the follow-up to Foster’s Kissing Eden. Loving Eden tells the story of Grey and Eden as they navigate a long-distance relationship and, ultimately, Eden moving from her hometown to Texas to be with Grey. I’ll be honest and say that Eden and Grey’s life isn’t perfect – which is fine, because life isn’t perfect. They face many problems in their relationship when she moves to Texas and there were times that I, along with Eden, wondered why she’d ev ...more

Loving Eden is the sequel to Kissing Eden by T.A. Foster. We already know how Eden and Grey met. Now, it's time for the hard part of making a relationship work. Eden packs up and moves in with grey, but it's not as easy as she thought it would be. Did she make a mistake? Did he? Of course, there's more to it i this story than just making the relationship work. There are more stresses to over come, especially when a new guy comes to town. After reading a romanc

Even though Loving Eden is the 2nd novel in the Kissing Eden series, I didn't feel lost or left out. Loving Eden can be read as a stand alone novel.

Eden has packed up her life and moved across the county to Texas to be with Grey. This is a HUGE step in any relationship and I appreciated how Grey and Eden have real issues, it's not all hot sex and playing house. They have to grow and adapt to living together, and to making decisions together.

I read Kissing Eden a while back now, however the minute I opened this book it felt like I had only read it a few days ago, I think it is because it feels like I know the character personnally (I know it sounds weird but I think its just good writing). I did wonder where this book could go as Kissing Eden ended beautifully but this book had a great twist and that alllowed the reader to see the characters were in a normal relationship

I enjoyed this continuation of Eden and Grey’s story. Eden makes the move to Texas, joining Grey at the Palm Palace. Long distance relationships are hard but starting a life together can be difficult too. From the start with Eden’s cross country drive, I was turning the pages to get to her reunion with Grey and couldn’t stop reading until the very last page.

I am happy that Eden and Grey got another book and that we got to read more about them.

Loving Eden was quick‚ sweet and really funny continuation of Eden and Grey´s story. It was really great to watch these two together grow‚ to watch them fight together the challenges that were in their way and how they relationship deepens more as the story progresses. They are both likable and good developed characters and you can relate with them.

I am looking forward to read more from T.A. in the future.
