 “He won’t hurt her. He doesn’t know how to hurt her.”

*This CANNOT be read as a standalone* – You must read this series (in chronological order – not the published reading order) as follows:  Finding Eden then Claiming Eden followed by Beyond Eden in order to read the series as intended and get the full benefit of an incredible series that will touch every part of your heart. The Eden series is hard to read but it’s fundamentally emotionally driven meaning aspects of the story become secondary to the mental and emotional torment of love and the self.

“I want him to be proud of me.”

“Your father is not a role model. He’s an abuser who beat a little boy so hard for so long he grew up thinking the only way to be loved is to have the shit kicked out of him.”

We read this series years ago yet still remember it with aching hearts and tears in our eyes. So, to say we were apprehensive yet eager to start reading Claiming Eden is an understatement. Paul, Danny and Eve have owned our hearts ever since we met them; their story so heart breaking, passionate and unusually romantic. Their journey is not easy rather it is fraught with pain and searing love. So many tears!

Danny loves Paul with all his heart and he knows he’ll never get that love and tenderness completely returned as Paul wants him to carry on and emulate a childhood indoctrination of pain equals love.

‘Devoted slave and loyal best friend was as close as they would ever get.’

Again, the story of Paul broke our hearts once more as much as it did the first time. We absolutely have no doubts at all that Paul loves Danny, but the nature of his love does not necessarily mirror Danny’s love for Paul and this is so fucking sad. The lengths Danny goes to in order to protect, love and keep Paul safe is heart-breaking. Danny boy craves and ultimately needs the softness and tenderness to make up for the unbearable pain giving yet his necessary struggle and incessant want to be what Paul needs makes his sacrifice so much more evident. Paul and Danny – best friends from childhood; their love is immeasurable yet heartbreakingly unalike.

He lost Paul in those tender moments when Danny wanted to hold him instead of hurt him. Love him instead of insult him.’

We hope with all our hearts that Kele Moon decides to write more which takes us to the time after Beyond Eden. Claiming Eden opened up old wounds from when we read this series last and the only healing grace would be more from Paul, Danny and Eve.

SYNOPSIS

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 desires more than anything—his best friends, lovers Paul and Eve. Determined to claim what was never supposed to be his, Danny waits like a snake in the grass, poised for the right moment to offer them a temptation too delicious to resist.

Artist Eve Everton made the painful decision to leave her true love Paul for the siren call of New York City. Now 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.

Paul Mattling is 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?

SYNOPSIS

Handsome, angry and spoiled, Danny Carlow struggles to find his place in the world when his hatred for authority makes survival difficult. The only thing that keeps him from completely giving up and turning to a life of crime is his friendship with clean-cut Paul Mattling. More than his conscience and his best friend, Paul’s also the one Danny secretly pines for with every ounce of his being.

Paul is a natural over-achiever with a football scholarship and straight A’s to boast about. Yet Paul is haunted by an abusive childhood that’s left him more scarred than anyone realizes. Looking for an escape from his demons, Paul has his own deviant secrets, ones he doesn’t want anyone, especially Danny, to know about.

When dark desires are accidentally revealed Danny and Paul end up coming together in a clash of wild passion more tumultuous than either of them could have anticipated. Tasting the forbidden is sweet, but it turns the tables on their relationship, putting everything, even their lifelong friendship, in jeopardy.
