The bold erotic masterpiece by #1 New York Times bestselling author Anne Rice writing as Anne Rampling.
They call her the Perfectionist. A stunning, mysterious, and fearless sexual adventurer, Lisa is founder and supreme mistress of The Club—an exclusive island resort where forbidden fantasy meets willing flesh. Here eager participants who can afford life's most exquisite luxuries can experience the breathtaking pleasures of surrender and submission. Here nothing is taboo.
A thrill-seeking photojournalist, Elliott risks his life daily in the most dangerous, war-torn regions on Earth. Now he has come to Paradise to explore his most savage and vulnerable sexual self, committed to the ultimate plunge into personal risk.
Together, their journey to the limits of erotic pleasure will take them farther than they ever dreamed they'd go . . .
Eden is a lovely story about mutual love and respect in the crazy context of The Club and the BDSM world in it. It's one of the better stories that doesn't paint participants in the Lifestyle as emotionally wrecked, sick individuals. I always recommend this when people new to the scene ask for fiction. I'm glad to finally have my own copy.
Do not compare this book to the movie of the same name ~ The movie version is camped up & changed to make the story light & funny ~ The actual story in this book is not light and not funny, it is more of a complicated romance, between two people who don't realize how much they need each other.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and hopefully, you will too ~ and if you do, you may seriously want to pick up the Sleeping Beauty Trilogy.
It is a love story, and I loved it. Anne Rice is a great author. I tried the story of O but found it very difficult to follow. I never finished it
East to Eden came up during my quest for erotic novels.
All I can say, it is well written, easy to follow and exciting and stimulating. Try it..you will not regret it.
Exit to Eden also brings to the fore a very non-fictional fact... that both men and women have a vulnerable side - regardless of how well they conceal it!
The book is written in 'simple' English, which makes for a nice, easy read and an ideal travel companion - on the train to work, or away on the beach!
For the women (and men!) among us who have ever read a Mills & Boons book, you will notice a few mild similarities between this book and the well-known romance novels (i.e. short 'n' sweet with a basal storyline). But Mills & Boons would have been hard pushed to sculpt and bring to life the erotic elements of the tale as Anne Rice has!
When all is said and done, Exit to Eden is an entertaining, fantastical and highly erotic romance novel. Recommended for those of you who are adventurous, young at heart and enjoy being educated and entertained.
