Eternal Soulmate by Brooklyn Taylor

This book is intended for readers over 18. Sexual content, language and violence. 

Ashlynn Ellis’ life was finally coming together. After a troubled childhood she had control of her life just the way she wanted. She had her inner circle of trust consisting of McKoy and Grace who were her lifelong girlfriends which allowed her to keep the boundaries set. But an end-of-life journey for her estranged mother shakes Ashlynn’s distrusting self to the core, which unknowingly leads her to cross paths with her soulmate, Cooper Brooks. Ashlynn has never had a trusting man in her life nor did she want one. She has seen domestic abuse on the front line and can not let these memories go. 

Cooper Brooks is a police officer and has seen domestic violence at its worse. As a child with a hard upbringing, he commits himself to his career. He does not have time in his life for a woman and he doesn’t care to look for one; that is until he meets Ashlynn Ellis. 

Ashlynn and Cooper meet by what could only be orchestrated by a higher power, and for the first times in both their lives realize love is something they are missing. 

Will Ashlynn trust Cooper and let her guard down for this man that worships her? Can Cooper convince her to trust him and embrace the love he wants to give her? Will Ashlynn lose her internal battle and let Cooper in? When someone from her past comes back to destroy her can she protect Cooper, the love of her life, before it’s too late to protect herself? This a passionate love story between two people who were brought together by fate as soul mates made for each other. Is their destiny really meant to spend the rest of their lives together?


The Good: Definitely a 18 and older book, but nevertheless, it is one of my favorite Adult Romance books. The plot was that one look, one touch and you wold find your soulmate. That is what happened to Ashlynn and Cooper. They meet on a plane, one going to pick up a prison and one fulfilling the last wishes  of their dead mother. One night changes everything for Cooper and Ashlynn but that isn't the only twist and turn that will happen to them. This book is my first printed ARC and I am thankful to Brooklyn Taylor for the opportunity. The ending was an expected ending, but loved it all the same. Ashlynn goes from a semi-shy person about her past to a person who would do anything for the people she loved. Even keeping a evil blast from the past away from Cooper. 

The Bad: The book seemed quite long, but the I don't know the number of pages because there was none. Publishing error I think. I understand that there had to be a villain and who it was, but he seemed like someone a lot worse than explained. His past makes me understand why he did what he did but he should've risen higher than that. 

In the end, there wasn't much wrong with this book, but there was a whole lot of right!! The second book's cover reveal is coming out soon!! Hopefully the wait won't be too long!
