    I have been looking forward to this book to see where Tucker and Adrianna story goes after she left him at the airport. Book one was an emotional ride but this book was more emotional, if you ask me. It broke my heart when Tucker was sending messages to Adri but she wasn't responding, I just wanted her to write back saying she made a huge mistake but when she didn't, I knew people will hurt for poor Tucker. He is such a sweet and adorable guy with a very, very sexy bedside manner if you know what I mean. I was routing for these two all the way through and I knew Grams would have her way.If it wasn't for Grams health scare I don't think Adri would have made a move. I was so happy when they talked and decided to make a go of the couple thing. Yay! The sex scenes are extremely hot and every reader will love it, I loved Tucker. He liked fast and hard but soft and slow as well, like I said he has an amazing bedside manner. There were a lot if ups and down through out this book, Adri still dealing with the loss of Alex which is understandable but also hard for Tucker to hear her talk about her dead husband. They both have their issues, and the huge distance between them as Tucker has to return to filming. Can they make it work?I loved that Adri had her family and friends with her throughout the book. Find out if they get their happily ever after.... 5 StarsReviewed by: AmyEye Candy Bookstore (Manager)

I absolutely love her writing skills.I was lucky enough to win a competition to win an Arc copy of EWO. #ExcitedDoesntBeginToCoverIt.We left Waking up with Adriana leaving Tucker at the airport, and that left me hating Adriana.I told Renee this and she told me to bear with it.I hate giving spoilers to books but I will tell you Adriana redeems herself tenfolds in this addition. ;) I absolutely love the way Renee has written this book, it is such a fantastic book and BIG too, which I love books to be. It's not dragged out and nor is it rushed, its just perfect.I love we get to see more of the other characters in this book and I've found my next love interest and he goes by the name of Adrian (#swoon).

    I had been waiting for more of Tucker and Adriana from the second that I finished Waking Up. The Healing Hearts series is the story of two broken, seemingly opposite individuals, who help to, much like the name suggests, heal each other. Where we got a majority of Adri’s story in Waking Up, this book was focused more on Tucker. We got his background and his demons, and it was done incredibly well.To the outside world, Tucker Stavros has everything as a famous actor. On the inside, he’s dealing with the fact that Adriana left him in the airport and hasn’t spoken to him since – an issue of abandonment that he is forced to recognize. Then something awful happens and they are forced together and have to deal with all of the things that have been left unsaid. However, it’s here that we get a peek into Tucker’s past and the true amount of demons he has to conquer. I personally loved getting to see this whole other side of Tucker. He was so confident and assured in the first book that he felt more humanized in a way throughout Eyes Wide Open. Let me just say, for as heartbreaking as Adriana’s story was, Tucker’s broke me in a completely different way. I could relate a lot closer to some of the events of his past than Adriana’s so I developed a gigantic soft spot for him.One of the things I respected the most about Renee’s writing was the delicate nature with which she handled every difficult aspect that came up. I never felt like reactions were played up or filled with angst and drama for the sake of the story. Everything these characters went through was raw and emotion-filled, but never beyond the realm of reality. The writing flowed organically and told a gut-wrenching tale that kept your soul gripped until the very end.The story is told mainly through Tucker and Adri’s points of view, but there are sprinkling of others we hear from as well. It helps to keep us invested in this circle of friends and family, not just the two main characters. While Tucker and Adriana’s story is over (extremely satisfyingly I might add), Eyes Wide Open hinted at plenty of other stories to be told. I honestly laughed, I cried, I bit my lip in anticipation…I guess you could say I experienced a myriad of emotions. If you’re looking for an awesome read that will suck you into a vortex; one of love, forgiveness, and a journey to acceptance, look no further…because The Healing Hearts series is a MUST read!I had been waiting for more of Tucker and Adriana from the second that I finished Waking Up.

    SNS Rating: 4.5~~~~~~~~~~Dee's ★★★★★ Review~~~~~~~~~~The love story of Adriana & Tucker is an excellent example how one person, no matter how lost and broken, can affect others like a stone cast into the lake, the ripples expand and touch the lives of others who then reach out and transform still more. Such was the effect Tucker had on Adriana and all of her tight little group of friends.Relationships changes people whether good or bad. The biggest hurdle to any relationship is when one partner sees the other partner in a situation and immediately jumps to a conclusion based on fear and insecurities without being willing to discuss the challenging situation and be open to another interpretation. Waking Up and Eyes Wide Open tell a beautiful and inspiring story of two broken people lost in a dark world of pain and misery with no desire or hope of ever being free. There are lots of tears, moments of anger & frustrations, laughter and a whole lot of loving going on!Seeing these two people find love in friends, family and each other, watch as they mend the broken pieces in each other and together step forward into light and laughter is an amazing journey. There are surprising twists and many lovable characters that hint at telling their own love stories in the future. It feels so much like watching one's own family and friends grow and change with the passage of time. I was given this book in exchange for an honest review. Five Stars.~~~~~~~~~~Sharlene's ★★★★✯ Review~~~~~~~~~~Eyes Wide Open is the second installment in the Healing Hearts series and the continuation of Tucker and Adriana's love story. IMHO this book flowed so much better than the first book. The author kept the multiple POV which I love! However, she didn't repeat the same scenes over again which helped greatly with the flow. This book also introduces some new characters as well as keeping all of the characters from the first book. It's nice to see the relationship between Tucker and Adriana continue and advance and improve. Although there are many ups and downs for them both as individuals and as a couple, there does end up being an HEA.This book is a standalone. However, it would be much more enjoyable if read along with the first installment (Waking Up). Also, there will be other installments in the series dealing with other couples that we meet in the first two installments.

    This is the perfect follow up to Waking Up. Tucker leaves , Adri decides to break contact , both are miserable and here we go again !!As much as Adri believes she is doing what is best for Tucker she is really just causing damage that they may not be able to overcome. She is falling fast and hard for Tucker so why deny yourself that chance at love again ? As we know from book 1 Adri is struggling with her issues and this story is her finally making the choice to get back to living for herself and be happy. This does not mean she needs to let go or forget , just find a happy medium where she gets what she deserves but always holds her past close to her heart. Tucker is in misery without Adri , trying to concentrate on work while being so far away and not knowing why adri is not speaking to him. When an issue comes about with Grams Adri comes to the rescue. Will we finally get the reunion we have been waiting for ?? Will Tucker break through to Adri ??This story brings us several POV's and I love them all. Of course we get Tucker & Adri. We also get Grams , I love Grams , she is full of wisdom , love and brutal honesty !! We learn a few family secrets and also learn of Tucker's struggles as a child and the struggles of his family. Victoria & Grant have their moments as well and you will be shocked at their stories !! Back in NH there is a ton going on with the gang. Mick & Blake have a wedding to pan , there is tons of fun and bachelorette/bachelor parties. The wedding takes place and it is beautiful !! Dee & Kale experience their miracle but not without a little drama thrown in the mix !! Adri finally decides to confront her fears and share her secrets with the gang. We have some heartbreaking moments , swoon Preston , and of course much love and happiness between them all !! The sex is phenomenal and Tucker is just .......damn , he is TUCKER !! With many lead ins to more I look forward to the stories of other characters and couples and just cannot wait to read everyones stories past , present and future !!

Even though they book have their issues and the huge distance between them as Tucker has to return to filming they make it work. Again I loved that Adri had her family and friends with her throughout and they all welcomed Tucker into their lives as if they have known him for years. Adri was strong to get to were she was and it was nice to see Tucker help her heal. The epilogue made me sigh with love for Tucker and laugh with Adri. I'm happy they got they book worthy happily ever after.

    This book start off with tucker back where he lives missing Adriana like crazy . But she decide that he need to have someone that can live his lifestyle. But what she doesn't understand is tucker loves her unconditionally and it doesn't matter what other people think he needs its him who need her. Adriana is just as miserable as Tucker but yet they are both being so stubborn and not reaching out anymore Tucker stopped trying to contact her. Even know that's just what he wants to do. This book went back and forth .. Which made it hard for me to read. I guess I am a happily ever after kind of girl. I didn't expect for Tucker to return home and Not go back to Adriana. But it was Adriana that wasn't reaching out to him. She made the decision that he didn't need her in his life. and didn't allow him to make that decision himself. The first book had so much emotion it seriously almost had me crying through the whole thing. The 2nd book did the same but it also went back and forth in people's point of views. for me that drives me crazy but doesn't make the book bad just makes it crazy for me. I did love this book it offered sweet tender love, even heartache of leaving the love that once was behind. and the heartache of a father that made the wrong choices. If you want a book to make you feel like a emotional roller coaster this is the book and that is a good thing. It even offered some sizzling scenes. Question is will Tucker forgive his father? Will Tucker and Adriana be together once and for all. Guess you will read both books to see :) they are definitely worth the read!

    3.5 starsThis was a continuation of Tucker and Adriana’s love story. At the end of book 1, Adriana makes a shocking decision that hurts both her and Tucker. But a near-tragedy has brought them back together again but will that do some good or cause more damage? I felt so bad for Tucker while reading his POV. He was so in love with Adriana and she kept shutting him out. I just wanted to reach in the book and give him a hug. I did not like the way Adriana treated Tucker. I mean I get why she thought what she was doing was good but it ended up hurting both of them in the end. I was so happy when they reunited. They both cared deeply for each other and the love between them was growing. It isn’t all a peachy ride. The past is still haunting both of them and there are a lot of ups and downs in their relationship. I did enjoy the transition in Adriana throughout the story. I came to like her more and more. And Tucker was amazing as always. The guy is such a sweetheart when it came to Adriana. Once again, the supporting characters of Adriana’s friends and family as well as Tucker’s friend Eddie and his Grams were fantastic. I didn’t like other character’s POVs that weren’t Tucker and Adriana but that has more to deal with me than anything about the actual book. I felt that it should have stayed more with the two main characters. But still, Renee did a great job with the flow of the story and kept me interested until the end. It is worth the read.

    Epic! This would make an AMAZING MOVIE!!! I would go see it and I know all of book freak friends would go see it, why? Well lets see there's Tucker and Tucker and did I say TUCKER?!? Yes this book was that good. Just as in Waking Up book 1 I cried my eyes out. I fell in love with Adrian and Tuckers romance of Fate and Guardian Angels. A romance of learning how to let go of the darkness and opening you heart to the light that is to love and let love in. A story of friendships that are stronger than blood. A story of family lost and found again. Best of all a story of women that love to read romance novels and watch Super Natural because we all know Dean is hot. Yes this book is perfect, so perfect I am still playing the movie in my head. I felt like Renee was chanelling me as she was writing this book, I mean seriously I am exactly like Adrian and 2 of her besties. and Yeah I love an actor that played a Vampire!!Okay aside from my ranting, this book was Hot and sexy and just so easy to read! I know that the story of Tucker and Adriana is sort of complete in this book but I hope Renee gives us more to this series because I am jonesing for more. Now I only have one question to Renee Can I get an "Tucker's Bitch" T-shirt???? Please!!!! Did I say how much I loved this book?!?

    WOW OMG I Love this book!!!!I was lucky enough to receive an Arc of Eyes Wide Open, which I'm so happy about coz I don't think I could have waited much longer. I fell in Love with Tacker Stavros in Waking Up but now I love him more if possible, I have been waiting for this book to see what happens with Tucker and Adri. Let me tell you it was so worth the wait.I love this story you really see Adriana coming out of her shell, becoming a different women, you see her becoming so much stronger, and she is the one there and being strong for Tucker, when he needs her through all the twists and turns of his story, Cant say to much without giving spoilers away. But everything becomes clearer and all your questions get answered.This has become one of my most fav book series and Renee one my fav authors.You see the others characters in this book, I love Mick she really has no filter, I want a friend like that, Victoria I really like, I kow what your thinking but just read, I even had a little soft spot for Grant(I know gasp) but you will see why.This book had me gripped from the beginning, I couldn't put it down, who needs sleep?? I didn't I just had to finish the book. Tucker Stavros is one of the best BBF ever!!!5 PLUS MASSIVE STARS ******#ProudTuckerSlut

    I really enjoyed Waking Up and thought it was a good debut, but Eyes Wide Open exceeded my expectations. I was hooked from the first page, and finished in a few hours. Waking Up, which should be read first, gave us Adri's story and her journey to heal. Eyes Wide Open is more about Tucker's journey, and it is such an emotional trip. My heart absolutely broke for him. One of the things that I most enjoyed about this book was getting the POV of so many characters, not just Tucker and Adri. They each had their own voice, and were able to provide details that added so much to the story. Because so much happens and there are so many key elements to this book, it's hard to review without spoilers. What I can say is this: Eyes Wide Open quickly became one of my top reads of 2014. Renee truly outdid herself. She made me fall in love with Tucker all over again, and gave voice to characters that will leaving you begging for them to have their own stories. She even made me want a HEA for characters that weren't very likable. This book is a must-read.(complimentary copy provided in exchange for an honest review)

    Yet again another amazing book by Renee Dyer!! I was so excited to start the second book in the healing hearts series and see what was going to happen between Tucker and Adrianna. After Tucker is left heartbroken when Adrianna fails to respond to any of his messages, I really thought that was going to be it for the two of them. Adrianna was also devastated not having Tucker with her but she was too afraid of getting her heart broken again to be with him. Grams was convinced that everything would work out in the end and that Tucker just had to give Adrianna time to work through her feelings for him. In the end through an unexpected turn its Grams that throws the pair back together and they decide to give it a go as a couple. Tucker is confronted by his father and doesn’t know how to deal with all the hurt his father has caused in the past but he tries to work through it when his father reveals a secret no one was expecting. I was so glad that Tucker and Adrianna got their happily ever after and I definitely look forward to reading more books by Renee Dyer.

    This book starts where Waking Up left off. Tucker is back on the set and Adrianna has been out of contact with him for four weeks and he is heart broken. He knew when he turned back at the airport and she was already gone that was the end. Adrianna thought losing Alex was bad but the pain in her heart with Tucker gone is so much worse. She wasn't ready to give up Alex and knew she had to let Tucker go. Until one day she receives a phone call from Tuckers grandmother and she tells Adrianna she doesn't feel good and the phone hits the floor. She rushes off to Kansas and now she has to get in touch with Tucker.Wow, the second book was just as emotional as the first book. Adrianna and Tucker try to find their way back to each other. With help from friends and Tucker's grandmother. I have to say that this series is one of the best I have read in awhile. The character development was phenomenal and parts had me laughing while I was crying.

    Just when you don't think Renee can outdo herself, she proves you wrong! With each book I read, a yearning for more from Renee stirs more and more. She has a way of bringing characters to life, and such a varied cast of characters she has!, but she also knows how important details are. It's those small things that make you forget you're reading, that suck you into another world causing you to feel, causing you to live the story. Renee definitely has a talent for this. The characters are all so wonderful, I love the fact that they are such an eclectic team. I can't wait to read the other stories in this series, as well as anything else Renee decides to throw at us crazy book lovers! This series has plenty of jaded souls, confused minds, broken hearts, and hope & faith in emotional & mental healing. Excellent books, with plenty of steamy love scenes, sass, and humor thrown into the pain.

    Have to Edit this with a question that I have been asking since I finished. Have you ever read a book or series that makes you step back and say WHEWWWW, I need a Break. I have been unable to jump into another book as usual due to emotions running rampant. A Full Blown Awesome NOVEL, Both Books. Tucker and Adri's story was Amazing. Two Shattered people brought together by fate, destiny or I chose to believe Guardian Angels. This story has such tremendous Heart Break, not just for them but for others around them. There is such a network of people involved, both good and bad. I really loved these books and can't wait till I can get onto #3 in the Healing Hearts Series. Do yourself a favor, read Waking Up, the first full length novel. I know you will want to read Eyes Wide Open right after. Get some tissues and get ready for Happy and Sad tears. These are a MUST READ. :)

    Tucker is back! I've been dying for this book and I was lucky enough to get it before it was release!I fell for Tucker in Waking Up but omg I forgot how much I loved him! He completely blew my mind in Eyes Wide Open. The story captures you from the start and you don't want to put this book down for one second! Adriana has become a stronger woman in this book! She takes a chance and has learned it's time to move away from the past and look at the future.Tucker doesn't give up on Adriana and even when she thinks he is he surprises her. It's hard to write a review for a book without spoilers. But I will say that this is one of my top books of 2014!Renee sure knows how to write and she brings it in this book!!!**I received this book as a prize in a giveaway and lucky to read it!!! Can't wait for you all to read this book!!

    OMG! I love Adriana and Tucker. I love that even through all there brokenness they were able find love. Renee Is a New Author and she has already set the bar high for other Authors when it comes to great stories. I Love how we find out Why Grant hates Tucker and Victoria isn't as much of a bitch as we thought in Waking Up. We finally see Eddie's hat and glasses removed. And we start seeing love connections all over that just make Adriana and tucker's family Grow. We also meet Mikos and find out some secrets that will have your head spinning. Of course there is all Tucker and Adrian's friends and always Grams. Gotta love Grams. If it wasn't for her unfortunate turn of events in the beginning Tucker and Adriana would may of never found their way back to each other and remained miserable without one another.You must read this story

In the first book, we get Adrianna and Tucker, meeting, knowing they are attracted to each other, yet both so broken they don't know how to react or move forward. In Eyes Wide Open, we get the story from where the first book left off. I could not put this one down. With so many different emotions from all of the characters, you really feel what they feel. There are so many twist and turns that when you think you are over the shock of one twist, another one jumps out at you again. I was totally captivated by Adrianna and Tucker's story from book one, and it carried all the way through to the end of this book! I hope we get more with these characters as I want to know what is going on with the rest of them too! Great Job by Renee Dyer! Really looking forward to more of her work! ~Chell

    wow this book has so many emotions! one minute your hating loving crying awe moments!! it was wonderfully written its jumps betweens characters an sometimes when authors do that u get confused not with Renee u knew who was talking at all times!!adriana feels she don't deserve to be happy or that if she gets to close to Tucker she won't be fair cause she still feels for her husband that pasted away.so she keeps pushing tucker away until she gets a unusual phone call...tucker trys to contact Adriana every day! he finally decides to stop so maybe he can heal from the heart ache Adriana has caused him..until he gets a call from Adriana....will this phone call push tucker over the edge or will it bring him the happiness he so desperatey wants???

    In all honesty, I didn't go in reading Eyes Wide Open with excitement. I started the first book, Waking Up and was a little disappointed with the grammar and layout, so I skipped chapters and shot to the end so I could start book two. By the third chapter, I was so confused I had to go back and finish book one properly and - guess what? I got engrossed in the story.Read the rest of the review at Blog Tour, eARC Review, & #Giveaway: Eyes Wide Open (Healing Hearts #2) by Renee Dyer

    The continuation of Adri, Tucker and the whole gang and other characters as well blew me away!! The entire cast of characters grow on you and you end up loving the ones you may not have liked in book one!! I loved that the author utilized her love of books to make the characters real!! Love conquers all and it is proven in this story and kept me on the edge of my seat throughout the entire book!! You see the growth in all of the characters and I love the banter between friends. Definitely a must read kudos Renee!!

    I received this for an honest review. First I will say Please don't read this without reading the first one. This was the perfect second book. It takes place where we left off with the first one which is AWESOME!!! The wonderful thing about this book is that it has multiple POV's more than just the two main characters which is always nice to see!! An enjoyable read wonderful to read this through Tuckers eyes!! This is definitely one once you pick it up you wont want to put it down.

    This is book two in the series. It continues where book one ends. Wow. This is a fantastic read. I so love Adriana and Tucker. So many great characters in this book to love. I'm really not gonna say much about the storyline. I'm just gonna say this is a must read. The twists and turns had me gripped. I can't recommend these two books highly enough. If it was made into a movie I'd love it too. If your looking for an emotionally charged book then get 1-clicking these now. You won't regret it.
