Release Day Blitz: Eden Book #2 by Georgia Le Carre @GeorgiaLeCarre

Book # 2

Release Date: 27th February, 2015

(18+ due to mature themes and sexual content)


It wasn't supposed to be like this- I came ready, determined, but nothing could have prepared me for Jake Eden. 
Engulfed in his power, his lust and his primal need for me, I've become ever more helpless in his hands. I love the way he touches me, holds me, protects me. I feel alive in ways I cannot explain. I know I am giving my body to a criminal…week after week, but I can’t stop. 
I’m addicted. 
He has no idea. 
It's all wrong, but I’ll stay with my plan until I figure out a way around the conflict I'm facing...

I never knew that looks could blindside a man the way Lily Hart's beauty did me. When our eyes collided that first time, the connection was instant, I knew, that she was like no other. She was something special, uniquely different.
But I've discovered since then that there is a secretive side to her, and now I fear deception stalks her eyes.
I know I must keep my distance, but she keeps persisting that I have her heart, so how can I push her away when all I want to do is tie her down and make her mine?


Review by Nadia Chief Obsessive Pimpette

~*~ copy given in exchange for an honest review ~*~

"In the glass I see his face gleaming dimly, as insubstantial as a ghost. It is a moment so simple, but so heightened because of that very simplicity. Life rarely offers such moments of profound clarity."

I was breathlessly waiting for this as the first part ended on such a high note and I was not disappointed. This is the second part in a trilogy and I strongly recommend they are read in order. Told from a dual perspective, we read the story from both Jake and Lily's point of view. Part two opens with a trip down memory lane and my second guessing and hunches are soon exposed in the plot line. Let me warn you chapter one had big fat tears slowly travelling down my cheek, I was unaware until one hit my kindle. The deep sense of loss, mourning and sheer grief is interlaced in every word. Lily feels adrift. She is a broken soul. Everything she does from discovering her brother's corpse is born from anguish and misery. Her motivation is so pure and yet naive in her simplicity. she steadfastly adheres to her chosen path no matter what is thrown ar her. I loved her a little more with each revelation she bestows, the scenes unravel like a present on Christmas morning. Pretty, tempting and full of promise on the outside...

Jake our sensuous bad boy, king pin, head of the family is drowning in the pleasure of Lily, he holds his cards tightly to his chest and maintains control at all times. He whisks Lily away to escape from the darker side of his family business after a long standing family feud is re ignited by an incident at Eden. Through their trips away to Ibiza and Las Vegas we see another side to Jake, the man behind the gangster. He is one amazing alpha male and the love he has for his family is evident in the choices he makes. The visit with his mother reminds us that this traveller family has not forgotten it's roots no matter how successful they have become.

The passion and attraction between Jake and Lily continues to sizzle...they can't keep their hands off each other, fueling the cycle of need. Never have they felt this way towards any one else and for Lily this puts her in a moral dilemma. Unable to reconcile her head and her heart, her past and her future, Lily struggles to know which is the way forward.

Once again Georgia is wicked...building us up and leaving us hanging! As the book ended I was equal parts elated as the plot is twisty, thought inducing and seriously steamy and gutted that it was over...for now. I read this super quick as I love the imagery of the wording and the poetic feel the the novel. Again I felt the music in the script, the beat and rhythm in each scene as the drama, tension and utter despair builds mercilessly. Georgia crafts a beautiful make believe world that I become immersed in from start to finish. Bring on part three.

A twisting yet beautifully not all that glitters is gold 5 star read.


‘Come here.’
I go to him and climb into his lap. His hands come around me, the palms hot. I nuzzle him like a cat, my hand stroking his thick hair, straightening it. It is ruffled. He has been running his hands through it. He takes my shoes off and lets them drop with a thud on the floor. I sigh with pleasure when his big hands start massaging my foot.
‘I didn’t know where you were. If you had simply run away. I know so little about you.’ His voice is a deep, honeyed rumble. It has a song in it. I could listen to it all my life. But I won’t. I was fooling myself before.
‘I didn’t run away. I’m here.’
The hardness between his legs pushes into my hip. I look up into his eyes. There is only one word for what is in them: hunger. I have never seen such extreme desire, such ravenous craving. The air trembles with it. A voice inside my head cries, ‘What have you done? What have you done?’ I ignore it. My body loses its tiredness and responds to that yearning. My lips part, my nipples swell and pebble tightly, my sex opens like a night flower.
‘Would it be really horrible if we had sex right now?’ he murmurs.
‘Yes, that would be utterly, utterly horrible.’
He carries me to the bedroom and kicks the door open. The large chandelier is not lit. Instead only the narrow bronze lamps over the paintings on the walls are on, creating their own individual pools of yellow light, making the paint look thick and oily. I glance at the bed and my mouth opens with astonishment. I turn back to look at his face. ‘What the—?’
‘Indulge me,’ he says languidly.
