I wouldn't have believed Serpentine Walls and this one were written by the same author. Not a winner for me at all. This one is formal, the language is stilted and I'm not getting anything out of it... I'm cutting my losses at 43%. Aiden wasn't my fave character from the previous book, he was a people user, a slut and a rat bastard now I come to remember him properly BUT I now know where he got all of that behaviour from...the infamous Professor R (for Rodney or ratbag, take your pick). He was ...more

Original Blog Post:
Blog Tour, eARC Review, Excerpt, #Giveaway: Aidan's Journey by CJane Elliott

Those who are looking for an M/M romance with this book, stop and take a deep breath. This is not erotica, this is technically not a romance either. This is a book that takes us readers on a journey of learning and maturation, complete with all the trials and risks someone takes on that life journey.

Aidan starts out idealistic and scared of what may be. He is a Republican politician's son and was subj

Note this is not a love story, rather how our MC evolves from love. Both negative and positive. Our MC knows his final love interest for only a quarter of the book.

This is going to be a quick review.

The author dragged the Rodney (cheating, lying, manipulating sex addict) thing out a little too much. On and off for more than five times. Aidan despite having a wonderful support system kept making the same mistake again and again. The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over an

This was just not for me.


ugh the back and forth with Professor Rodney
I hated him Professor Rodney such a predator /Master manipulator
praying on the young students both male and female.
ugh so nasty!

Aidan hmm I did not like him either so yeah
So what he had high hopes in the romance department and was burned (we’ve all been there)
so instead Aidan decides he only has one night stands expect for Rodney of course!!

After all the no calling neglected text messages he still went back to professor Rodn

I was hooked from the first sentences. Aidan's Journey is funny and sweet and captivating. And long. Epically long. A real commitment. But worth it.

I got swept away by Aidan's college years, the story of a hot young stud (but sympathetic! The best kind!) sucked into an affair with his college professor, a hot sexy Brit (the worst kind!).

Aidan's journey becomes more compelling as it goes through each epoch, as I grow to love and understand each character. I became more than hooked; I became bre

Reviewed by Brandilyn for Prism Book Alliance. If you have read Serpentine Walls by CJane Elliot, you may think you know Aidan. If you are anything like me, you may somewhat loathe Aidan for how he treated Pete, and apparently every other guy with whom he came into contact. But also, if you are like me and have read Serpentine Walls, you might just want a little insight into where Aidan came from, where he is going, and why he is who he is.

Wonderful story

This is a wonderful story about Aiden going through life, college, complicated love affair in school, and the friendships he developed at University. Told in first person, you root for Aiden and his search for love and happiness. I was not disappointed with the ending.

Aidan's Journey is the story of a college student who falls in lust with one of his professor's. Aidan is manipulated by Rodney, the professor. Both are pretty slimy individuals, having relationships with others while whining about it all and continuing to manipulate each other. There was no real romance here, just some very unlikeable people having sexual relationships. Pretty much a disappointment

Too much time with the scum bag and not enough time with the love interest.

Aidan touches something in me. This story was equal parts sad and equal parts happy and very much like therapy. Tears.
