Book Description

October 2008
He's my teacher. I shouldn't be alone with him. But I can't help that he's irresistible. I let the door silently close at my back. He stared at me, and a taut quiet stretched between us. "I like hearing you play," I said, moving toward him. He turned, in sync with my slow approach. He looked up at me but didn't say anything. I rested my clammy hand on the cold, slick body of the baby grand. "May I?" The muscles in his throat shifted, then he swallowed. "Eden." My knees weakened, like a soft tickling kiss had just been blown against the backs of them. "Is it okay?" I asked. His gaze held mine like two hands joined. He understood what I was really asking. "Let me stay," I said. "Please." "You're going to get me in trouble," he said.

By Sam TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
A beautiful eighteen-year-old girl named Eden thought she could have everything, that she even set her eyes on her new music teacher who is four years older than her. After seeing him, James Christian, Eden can think of nothing but him. She no longer wishes to be with her current boyfriend, Matt, since she feels that any excitement their relationship had died long ago, and that she and Matt were only together so that they would have someone to date.

Not only that, Eden starts to feel too immature compared to her twenty-two-year-old teacher. She starts listening to classical music, which James refers to as food, while all other types of music are referred to as junk food. She starts to find her pastimes, such as partying, childish compared to what she imagines James would do during his pastimes. Eden starts coming to school early to get a chance to talk to him alone before class begins, and to help pass out any papers, and even to give him hints about her thoughts of him.

Will Matt let go of Eden so easily? How will Eden get her teacher to like her enough to forget that they're not allowed to date? Will James succumb and fall for his beautiful student? If so, will Eden and James get caught?

Every here and there, there are word omissions, indicating the need for more editing. At times the sentences were too short. But those errors are easy to avoid because of the gripping story. At first I thought the progression that Eden experienced of leaving her boyfriend and of no longer partying happened too quickly. But then I thought about it and remembered that she just used to party because she didn't really have a family to go home to ever since her mother died and her father remarried.

1.0 out of 5 stars Awful. Nov. 22 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am trying to find a decent teacher/student romance but they are always trashy and have few redeeming qualities. This was an extreme disappointment. The main character is absolutely childish and the author did a horrid job in making her seem mature yet having her retain her youth. The girl is clearly obsessed and I kept waiting for the story to get better or the teacher to call the police. In general teen books are below literary standards these days but this is worse than erotica. At least those authors make decent storylines and realistic characters. Would NOT recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delicious. July 21 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I don't believe that this book has a hardcover edition. I much prefer having my books hardcover! But, nonetheless, this is an excellent book about a very taboo subject. I think that the teacher/student relationship in this novel is very tastefully done. That can be difficult to locate. A Season of Eden is a great book, and I could read it multiple times!

5.0 out of 5 stars Courtesy of Teens Read Too Aug. 17 2008
Format:Paperback
The melody reached in. Touched me. Filled me. As if an invisible siphon leeched off the notes and chords with the urgency of needed breath. He slowed the piece, his long fingers curling and flattening on the ivory keys, his eyes closing, lashes pressed against his cheeks. The tune echoed off the empty walls with one final deep chord. When he opened his eyes, they locked on mine. His hands slid from the keys and into his lap.

`There can't be anything between us.'"

Eden, a senior at her high school, needs to take an elective. She signs up for Concert Choir, which has always been labeled as an "Easy A" class. She doesn't expect to even care about the class... Much less, truly enjoy it.

However, when Mr. James Christian, the beautiful, young, new teacher, enters the room, Eden's heart stops. Concert Choir will certainly be more than she ever bargained for. Soon, Choir becomes her favorite class, and not because of all the beautiful music. A forbidden attraction springs up between Eden and her teacher, which they must repress.

Eden, dealing with her distant father, terrible stepmother and the loss of her real mother ten years previously, has a lot going on in her life. She seeks solace through Mr. Christian when her school friends become less than helpful. After having experienced a more mature friendship with Mr. Christian, people that she used to hang out with (her ex-boyfriend, etc.), seem suddenly immature and uninteresting. He seems to understand her in an adult way that she has never experienced before.

The dynamic between Eden and her teacher is very interesting. Little details display the subtle changes in their relationship throughout the novel. The reader will slowly watch her change how she addresses him... He goes from Mr.
