I received a copy of this book via the author in exchange for an honest review.

 

 

“Killing someone is hard work. Harder than it looks in the movies.”

 

 

I loved this book! I’ve been struggling with a bit of burn out lately and this is exactly what I needed. This book has an amazing story with a bit of erotic romance and BDSM elements all throughout. In my opinion this has a perfect mix of murder, mystery, suspense and romance.

While investigating a possible serial killer, Detective Silver also discovers a lot about herself and what makes her happy. She meets Anderson through a mutual friend and he is Silver’s “inside guy” that introduces her to the world of BDSM so she can catch a killer that is hiding in that world. This is where Silver starts to understand more about herself and finally figures out what has been missing in her life.

 

 

“If I wanted him, I had to make it happen. My responsibility. If I want to be happy, it’s my choice to make. It’s easy to say, but it is not just saying, today I’m going to be happy. You have to risk what you have this moment for what you want in the next.”

 

 

There were times when Silver was getting on my nerves. She seemed to be a taker and not a giver when it came to Anderson. I get it that the BDSM lifestyle is new to her and this is exactly what men used to do with her, but you don’t have to turn around and do the same thing to someone else, unless that is what they want. Which it’s not what Anderson wanted. However, I really liked Silver’s overall character as well as Anderson and all the other side characters. I think they were well developed and believable.

I really love all the local references. I was born and raised in Kansas City and still live here. KCK is my old stomping grounds and that is where all my family lives. Overland park, KCK, Northland, downtown area, just everywhere! I especially loved the reference to Missie B’s, Hayes Hamburgers and several other local places. I use to go to Missie B’s a lot in my 20’s. I loved the Drag shows! All I remember is Flo. Probably because my sisters exgirlfriend use to bounce there. One thing I don’t know is, where in the world are all the dungeons? But anyway… back to the story.

This was a fantastic mystery and it kept me guessing until it was time for me to know who, what, when and why! There were moments that made me feel like my heart was going to beat out of my chest and I couldn’t read fast enough to find out what was going to happen next. I loved it!!

The sex was excellent! But my favorite part was at about 14% in when Silver was “like a cat marking her territory”. YAAASSSS! You go girl!!

I also liked the first meeting that Silver and Anderson had. I really hate anything to do with feet, so this is pretty significant for me. Very well done! Bravo! Actually all the sex scenes are really good and erotic.

So why 4.5 stars? Only because there were moments in the middle of this book that seemed to drag on. I couldn’t pinpoint which one, but sometimes I was tired of hearing about Silver’s internal struggle with drinking and not knowing who she is and how she didn’t want Anderson around unless she wanted to use him for something. All I really wanted was to read more about the investigation.

One thing I don’t like (but has nothing to do with my rating) while reading any book is the overuse of the word “passion”. It’s worse than the word “moist. The word Passion is not overused in this book and is probably only used 3 or 4 times. The reason I bring it up is because I think that word gets overused so much that it really stands out to me when I read. I have come to hate that word and anytime I hear it, I cringe. I’m not a wordsmithing word wizard so I have no idea what you would use in its place. That is just my personal opinion and issue. I’m sure 99.9% of the people out there are fine with that word, I’m just the weird one.

Overall this entire book is a great read and will keep you glued to the pages. There is a reason why this book won the BDSM Writers Con Golden Flogger Award for Best BDSM book of the year. I loved it 🙂

My favorite quote:

 

“Do you know what the difference is between sexy and kinky? Sexy is when you use a feather while making love. Kinky is when you use the whole chicken.”

Drury Jamison is not a bestselling author, yet. But he believes hard work will prevail. He has been writing since he could read beginning with, what we now call fan fiction, stories about favorite DC Comics heros. Since then he gave all his attention to the story at the expense of the rules making rewriting very important.

Born an Army brat he finally settled and came to call the Missouri Ozarks home. While raising wonderful kids and failing at everything else, he wrote screenplays, television scripts, advertising copy and filthy limericks. After many twists, and multiple once-in-a-lifetime life changing events, he returned to work on the short stories and novels he loved best.

This is a very dark, erotic interpretation of the story of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden and their Paradise Lost. It begins with Adam and Eve in a state of innocence. Through a series of increasingly lustful BDSM encounters with paranormal creatures such as Raphael, Lilith, Lucifer, and Michael, Eve falls into sin and takes her loving husband with her. Warning: This is a work of fiction that contains sexually explicit materials meant for those over the age of 18 and contains elements of dubious consent, dominant male, submissive female, and ménages.

 

Review

 

 

Bella continues to push the boundaries with her newest release, The Claiming of Eve. Set in the Garden of Eden, this book paints it in a new light, nothing like what you had envisioned it to be. The arc of the story is so irreverent, I don’t even know how to review it properly.

First, I would like to mention WHY I decided to read The Claiming of Eve. I saw a tweet that had a one-liner from the book: 

Eve shuddered as she felt his cock hit the golden apple that was still deep inside her and push it up against her very core.

My immediate reaction was, good god, I simply have to read this book.

As per her usual routine, Bella throws you into the midst of things right away. First, Eve is so horny that she is masturbating, and this was such a hot scene, I almost wanted to take notes. I mean the woman knows how to use both of her hands, very well. Then we get to see Eve being roughly (please be forewarned – VERY roughly) dominated by her husband (Adam) and an angel.

Her overstimulated flesh was almost beyond its breaking point.

After reading this scene, I’d have to say that’s an underestimation. By the way, in case you didn’t know how Eve came into existence, it’s through being fucked by Adam. What a reasonable version of her first minutes on earth!

He had pushed his hard cock back and forth deep inside her virgin pussy as she waited helplessly to cum into existence.

Once the two men are done with her, they just discard her, as she is only there for their pleasure, and nothing else. Poor Eve, feeling neglected, wanders off and runs into Lilith, who turns out to be Adam’s first wife (what?!?). The women have a very hot scene in the middle of the book, so hot that I was wishing a Lilith-type person had walked across my path, just so she could ravage me like she did Eve. After that, there is another scorching scene involving monster sex, so you’ve been forewarned (once again). Poor Eve gets taken by a serpent Lucifer, who uses all of his snake-related appendages to work her over. Very very rough dubcon. Just sayin’.

It seems as if pain is the key necessary to controlling your pussy, Eve.

There are seven apples involved, one of which is stuffed up Eve in a tweet that drew me to this book in the first place. Also, if food play is not your thing, this is your warning (jeez, how many warnings am I going to have here?).

The final scene was highly erotic. In an unexpected twist, Bella makes Adam bisexual, and there is a very rough (once again) threesome involving another angel, whose task is to send Adam and Eve away from Paradise. Before he does that, he takes rough advantage of both sinners. Oh dear god. So, this is the final forewarning: if MM is not your thing, walk right by this. But if I were you, I would still read this, just to marvel at Bella’s audacity. There are also some orgasm withdrawal elements here that will make you squirm. Oh, and rough toy play. And since they didn’t have sex toys back then, Bella used her unstoppable imagination: the hilt of a sword, shoved up … that’s right, you guessed it. Also, umm, double anal. Good god. Is there any boundary that Bella will not push?

I cannot say enough about this book. Bella’s usual style, as always, transported me. It’s almost like a chanting style, where you just want to keep reading, it’s hard to explain. The descriptions of rough play were so vivid that I caught myself holding my breath more than once. But maybe that’s Bella’s intention – to heighten your arousal by slightly suffocating you. Worked well for me. Holy hell. I’m afraid I’m getting so addicted to Bella that I might stop reading anyone else.

Don’t fight the pain, sweet Eve. Your pleasure will be all the more intense once you submit.
