Review: Beyond Eden by Kele Moon

Beyond Eden by Kele Moon

Publisher: Ellora’s Cave
Genre: Menage Romance

Heat Rating: 4



Three lifelong friends find themselves tangled in a web of love, pain and dangerous secrets in this erotic Garden of Eden tale.

Tall, dark and handsome Danny Carlow has always gotten whatever he wants except for the two he wants more than anything—his best friends, lovers Paul and Eve. Determined, he waits like a snake in the grass, poised for the right moment to offer them a temptation too delicious to resist.

Artist Eve Everton makes the painful decision to leave her true love Paul for the siren call of New York City. Ten years later, with her life in shambles, she returns. When Paul’s waiting arms aren’t available, Eve falls for Danny’s charm and finds herself a willing accomplice in the dangerous games Danny plays.

Former college football star Paul Mattling is now a successful attorney with a bright future ahead of him. But behind those brilliant blue eyes are secret desires for a taste of the forbidden. Will he play it safe or give in to Danny and Eve and bite the apple?

Reader Advisory: Not for the faint of heart, the pain in this story is vivid and real, the emotions even more so. Haunting and poignant,Beyond Eden presents a darker side of BDSM. You might gasp. You might cry. You might find yourself reading it again and again.

Dodie’s Review

Caveat emptor – Buyer Beware: from first to last this is an erotic BDSM romp full of explicit descriptions and male/ male menage. That being said, forewarned is forearmed, right? This is was wonderful book. Kele Moon has written a book full of three fully formed people. Kele Moon seamlessly weaves the back story of Paul's, Eve's, and Danny's childhood and their difficulties with their parents into the story of their developing relationships; explaining their motivations as much as telling the story. Danny and Paul have managed to turn their childhood friendship into a caring adult friendship. This is difficult enough, but when Eve rejoins Paul's and Danny's lives, sparks fly and the three of them will never be the same.

This book is erotic and steamy with explicit descriptions of sex between the characters from beginning to end. There are a number of BDSM scenes, detailed in their description; however, the focus of the book is not the BDSM. This book is a beautiful love story, which you live with the characters. When they're happy; you're happy. As they fall in love, you fall in love. When they are sad, the book is heart wrenching. Don't worry, your happy ending is there; it just may not be the ending you were expecting.

I loved this book, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

4 Tea Cups!

I absolutely loved this story and how it told the developing threeway relationship. Kele Moon really put her name on my radar with this one :)
