Review: In Your Eyes by Diana Nixon

December 20, 2014
 "Only when I was back to my room, the pain hit me again. I took off my clothes, closed the curtains, and got under the blanket. I didn’t want to think about tomorrow, or anything at all, I just wanted to fall asleep."


     My life has never been perfect. I lost, I lied, I cried. But there was one thing that I thought would stay with me forever — my love…
      Adrian was my everything. The day he died, I died with him. It was like being caught up in a nightmare, with no reason to keep breathing, with nothing to hold on to.
      But one day, everything changed. I didn’t know I was lost until the moment Nic found me. He made me laugh, he made me feel, he made me believe that I could love again. I thought I would never feel alive, but then I looked into his eyes and I was lost. Only this time, it was not a nightmare swallowing me, but a beautiful dream coming true.

      Just when I thought there was no hope for tomorrow, my heart found a reason to beat faster…

NOTE: ‘In your Eyes’ contains explicit sex scenes, not recommended to readers under the age of 18. 

If you’ve read 'Love Undone' by Diana Nixon then you should know that 'In Your Eyes' is connected with that one. The events in the book still surround the death of Adrian, but this time we get to witness the direct consequences that marked his fiancé, Emily. 

Both books work in parallel, but 'Love Undone' focuses more on Kassie’s and Daniel’s story. It was nice to dive in Emily’s head for once, to see how she was affected by Adrian’s death since she was so close to him. Furthermore, Daniel was the reason for which Emily suffered for two years. I do understand that the reason for keeping everything a secret was to protect his friend’s reputation, but both Emily and Kassie suffered because of it.

Emily feels guilty and refuses to let herself be happy again, but things change when Nic shows up in her life. His presence and the advices of her friend, Kassie, give her courage to finally move on. Since I already knew part of Emily’s story I was more interested in Nic’s. He’s the shiny new toy of the series and I enjoyed reading about his family, his past, dreams and his thoughts, although I would have liked to see more of his past life.

Nic is the bad-boy kind of guy, but only on the surface and he is part of a wealthy family who had big plans for his future. They basically choose a job and a wife for him without giving a damn about his feelings. That is why he chooses to walk away and live on his own terms. I think that in this book he was my favorite character, which is why I would have liked to know more. Otherwise, Nic is funny and fun to be around, not to mention that he is very charming with the ladies and had great chemistry with Emily.

Overall 'In Your Eyes' was a fast paced reading with a lovely love story full of romantic and hot scenes. If you’ve read 'Love Undone' I highly recommend that you read this as well since there is one extra chapter from Adrian’s point of view and all the extra info coming from Emily’s point of view.

My solemn duty, dear, is to serve and honor you…

I looove to giveth unto thee ideas,
thots you never thot of:
the picturesque protagonist, par excellence,
the non-perishables, the luxurious ditzy-glitz:
the generous, undiluted expansion of d’bizarre;
the epic endoorphins - an open door to an
onomatopoeia Vernacular;
the high-flying, barnstorming,
toxic firewurKS from yeee-haw KS
taking you in a completely new direction
than where you originally planned!!
O! the mind doth boggle, girly-whirly!!

Why else does a moth fly FROM the night
than to a bold, attractive candle Light??
Don’t let His extravagant Brilliance be extinguished.
You’re creative, yes?
Then, fly-away with U.S. to the antidote…

Whether you obtain morality4mortality to wiseabove
or just glean tantalizing specimens for thy next best seller,
while I realize my penname is quite morbid, yet,
you shall find in our blogs a lotta (subliminal) moxie
which has taken this sinfull mortal yeeeeers to compile:
I lay it ALL out for you, dear, with All-Star-Oxygems:

Wouldn’t ya love an endless eternity
of aplomBombs falling on thy indelible cranium?
An XtraXcitinXpose with no zooillogical-expiration-date?
An IQ much higher than K2?
An extraordinarily, anti-establishment-victory
With both sardonic, satirical wit Who’s savvy
and avant-guarde-humility??
Here’s what the exquisite, prolific GODy sed
(with a most-excellent-detector of bull§ht):

“Faith, hope, and love,
the greatest of these is love -
jump into faith...
and you'll VitSee with love”
Doesn’t matter if you don’t believe (what I write);
God believes in you.

Meet me Upstairs, girl, where the Son never goes down
from a super-passionate, lucrative iconoclasm where you’ll find
of deluxe-HTTP [<- pi] opportunities for excitement BTW.

Do it. Do the deed, dude. Sign into the Big-Zaftig-House.
