Review: Eternal - Cecy Robson
Luci never expected to have fun. She also never expected to wake up with a man she just met, or for this man to be the new attorney at her firm.
Landon Summers is done with drama. After an ugly separation and even worse divorce, he has no desire to jump into another relationship.
When his sister Trinity drags him to a New Year’s Eve party, he doesn’t plan to stay long. One drink, a few hellos, and he’s out. Until he meets Luci, the first person in months to draw his smile and incite his passion.
Neither Luci nor Landon planned on each other, and they definitely didn’t plan on love. But the New Year means a fresh start, and eternal possibilities neither could deny.

If you enjoyed Inseverable, the first book in Cecy Robson's Carolina Beach series, then you're going to love Eternal. This book was everything I loved about the first and then some, full of sweet romance, great characters, amusing situations and hot sex - a perfect pick me up! While you don't need to read this series in order I'm happy to recommend both books and if you are familiar with the series then you'll enjoy getting a chance to catch up with the previous couple Trinity and Callahan (Trinity is Landon's sister).
Landon has given up on the idea of love and romance after a disastrous marriage that ended in a bitter divorce. The last thing he wants is a new relationship so when his sister insists he goes to a friend's New Years Eve party he plans to have a few drinks and then head home as soon as possible. Those plans quickly change when he meets Luci though. Luci has bad taste in men (and friends!) so getting abandoned at a party where she doesn't know anyone is her worst nightmare. Luckily Landon comes to her rescue and she decides to throw caution to the wind and spend the night with a handsome stranger. That night turns into an incredible weekend but neither of them are at a point in their lives where they're ready for a new relationship so that was all it was ever supposed to be. Until Landon starts his first day in a new job and realises Luci is the office manager. Thrown together daily at work will they be able to resist the intense chemistry sparking between them?
This was such a fun book to read and wonderfully drama free for a contemporary romance. Don't get me wrong I love a bit of drama sometimes but it can get tiring fast when things are constantly thrown at a couple just to add tension to a story so I was glad that wasn't the case here. Both Landon and Luci have their issues thanks to events in their pasts but they're both fairly open about their feelings and willing to talk things out like adults. I liked how patient Landon was and the way he was willing to wait until Luci was ready to trust him before starting a relationship. It was also great to see Luci walk away from a toxic friendship that was hurting her, I've read far too many books that seem to justify a horrible relationship between two women so I appreciated Luci recognising that the friendship wasn't good for her and putting a stop to it. It wasn't the only friendship portrayed in the story either, she had much nicer friends and got on well with Landon's sister so this story definitely isn't about women hating on each other.
Landon and Luci had a brilliant relationship that started out fuelled by lust but grew stronger through mutual respect and friendship. It was easy to see what a strong bond they had and I enjoyed every minute of their courtship. I'm definitely looking forward to reading more in this series and as always Cecy Robson didn't disappoint with her wonderful story.
