Christine was a complete and utter hypocrite, she went on a date with Travis but was a b!tch when she thinks Craig is dating! She was completely self-centred and I couldn't stand her character for the first portion of the story but I have to say she won me round in the end. Her attitude totally changed and my heart broke for her once we got to the root of her problems.
Christine had been through a tragic event in her past that she kept to herself. I have to admit I knew what it was going to be before it came out!
Craig was a great hero, he stuck by Christine through thick and thin and his feelings for her never wavered!
The first half of this book I didn't know if I was going to be able to finish it but the second half turned it all around. I was hooked by 50% and couldn’t set the book down. This was an emotional read and had me reaching for the tissues!!
I received a ARC in exchange for a honest review.
Eyes Open is book 2 in the Finding Home series by Author Rachel Caid but can be read as a standalone. Christine and Craig had such a beautiful and heartbreaking story. Christine struggled to let go of her past and had to deal with so much my heart broke for her. Craig was determined to bring Christine's wall completely down and i loved reading their journey through this. Great beautiful and emotional read.

Months ago, when Craig and Christine first got together, things were intense. The attraction they shared was overpowering and they got real close real quick, and in that maelstrom of emotion things went pear shaped. Craig, who has a history of being hurt by women who keeps secrets, realized that Christine had a secret that she point blank refused to come clean about.
Both of them being stubborn and pig headed ... that was that. They broke up, but still that connection is there, and since they live in each other's lives Craig's best friend and business partner being engaged to Christine's sister, something's got to give.
Written as an interconnected standalone, told from dual POVs, we get a recap of what happened between these two in the background of the latter part of Healing, book one of Rachel Caid's Finding Home series woven through the opening pages of Eyes Open.
Rachel employs a delicate touch as this story meanders around before eventually crashing headlong into Christine's secret. One that, at least in broad terms, you'll probably see coming a mile away, but the writing is so engrossing that, if you're anything like me, you'll be captivated and heartbroken as past and present collide, and sympathize with Craig who is, in large part, powerless to act, at least in the caveman way that his male instincts urge him to.
So much darker than its predecessor, it nevertheless captures the same spirit of family and closeness that permeates both, this story tugs at the heartstrings until they're strained and taught, soothes them only to snap them right to breaking point once more.
Even still, there's room between the covers for fun and hilarity, joy and togetherness, some rather hot sex, and a few twists and turns.
Beautifully told, I absolutely loved it.
What I love the most about Rachel's writing is the amount of heart and soul infused into each of her books. I can almost feel the pieces of herself that she leaves behind.
Christine and Craig feel like real people with real issues. No overly dramatic trumped up bullsh*t. Just two people living life dealing with everything that comes with it, family, friends and jobs. It's a balancing act for sure but then there is always something that happens that turns it all upside down. For Christine and Craig that something is each other.
Christine is holding back. I knew from reading Healing that she had a secret. One that she doesn't feel the need to share. It's not anyone's business if it isn't hurting them. Right?
Sometimes in life bad things happen and we have to learn to deal and move on. Christine thinks she has done just that. Until Craig. Christine wants Craig. Craig wants Christine but he's not going to settle for less than all of her. This story is about what happens when carefully constructed walls come tumbling down and Christine is forced to expose her darkness and trust those closest to her to love her just the same.
Christine and Craig's story touched my heart and opened my eyes! Sometimes all it takes is a sliver of light to obliterate the darkness.
The thing I like about Rachel's books is that they are more true to life. They're not your typical rich man trying to save lost poor girl. They are more relatable.
Craig was sweet, kind, patient (according to him) ; ) But he was also domineering, goes after what he wants, doesn't give up and sexy as hell!!!!
Christine had a strength in her she didn't know she had until Craig came along and forced her to show that strength. She was stubborn but I think that was her way of protecting herself.
There were so many feels in this book. I was screaming at my tablet and cussing Rachel out in the same breath. It's a great read!!!!
He never wavers, and is great at teaching Christine that she is a survivor.
There is plenty of hotness and times you want to shake the characters, but you get dual POV to help the story.
I believe this is 2nd in the series, and you can read it as a stand alone.
I will be going back and reading the 1st...maybe by then the 3rd will be out!
Worth the read for sure!
In book two of Finding Home we get Christine and Craig. Christine has been hiding a secret from most of her friends and family for years and it is a huge one. Craig OMG he is the perfect man. Wealthy, forgiving and one who wants to always take care of those he loves. Now all he needs to do is get Christ to understand he loves her and no matter what happened to her in her past he is there for her.
This is an extension of book one Healing and is one very good book. I highly recommend this book.
