“We gypsies believe in faeries and faerie glamour. Humans are easy prey. Once they cast their glamour on a human he becomes bewitched. He never sees what is right in front of him. He wanders the world dazed in a tangle of lust. Like a junkie.’ He traces my jaw with his thumb. ‘You look like one. Your eyes. Are you faerie, Lily?”


Lily is a little lost and feels haunted by memories of her brother’s death, even if she lost him some time ago. She is a stripper and she’s about to auditio

Wow ... the end left me speechless!!!

First of all thank you Georgia for mentioning me in your Acknowledgements, I feel honored...love your writing so much and I will be always supporting your works. ♡

I really loved Eden, the storyplot was very interesting, a lot of mystery and suspense and the hottest sex. The hero is to die for and the heroine was intriguing...a real puzzle. The writing was awesome!



I'm in love with Jack Eden.
Jack is a very beautiful sexy rich guy late twenties

Prologue

When we were young we used to lick the salt from each other's skin. I am suddenly filled with the strange desire to lick his skin. I put one hand under his head and the other under his neck and I put his head on the floor. Then I scoot backwards until I am on my hands and knees and my face i

Damn! I absolutely loved it. I was intrigued from the beginning. Strong characters, hot hero, steamy love scenes, darkness overload, great chemistry and pace, mystery all over, lots of intrigues … Simply READ THIS BOOK asap!

I sense her slipping away, drifting into dreamscapes where I will not be. I pull her closer toward me. When she is awake there is always a part of her that remains aloof and watching. She is like a forest. Deep and dark. You can lie or howl in it.

This is book 1 in the Eden trilogy and these are going to be short books I'm presuming since this one was.I don't usually pick up books with under 200 pages give or take. But I was given an arc by the wonderful author and since I loved the other book I read by her called Disfigured Love, I thought I would give it a shot.

Gangster meets pole dancer.. a book filled with romance, chemistry, mystery, deceit and much more..

I liked this one, I just need more..more pages!! It felt a little rus

Really liked this book. The only thing I didn't care for was the instant relationship, it seemed a bit rushed. Otherwise a very well written book and I look forward to the next in the series.

There were elements to make this book interesting: sexy, mysterious, Alpha, aloof hero; jumbled, dedicated, naive and deceitful heroine; suspense plot; etc. But somehow it was a miss for me.

I felt like I was missing something and with each page I turned I couldn't find it. I failed to connect with the characters, but if I was to pick a favourite, it would be Jake. At least he was real in his character.

I'm going to read the next book just to see what happens when Jake figures Lily out.

This wasn't my cup of tea. I didn't hate it or anything but I felt like the writing and the book in general was all over the place, at least to me. Sometimes, I didn't know who the characters were, or how they got from one place to another without any explanations. Although, I had some trouble to understand what they went through in their pasts. There was an interesting cliffhanger but I don't think I'll read the next book. I'm sure other readers will enjoy it though.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, Georgia Le Carre has a way of weaving words that makes her stories almost like poetry. Even with the setting of this tale, in the world of strip clubs and gangsters, there's a beauty in the way she writes. Jake Eden is an alpha male through and through and he dominates everything around him. He sees, he wants, he takes. And he has Jewel in his sights. This is the beginning of a love story at its heart, between two deeply damaged emotional souls and the ...more

Crystal + Jewel = GOLDMINE!
Jewel a.k.a. Lily Hart - Beautiful. Exotic. Broken. Crystal Jake a.k.a. Jake Eden - Powerful. Reserved. Sexy as hell. I LOVED EDEN!!!! Oh.My.World! There is so much raw, undeniable sexual attraction between these two characters. You're gripped in from the very first page and you're wondering who Lily is. What is her story? What are her secrets? Why does she give in to Jake so easily? There's no resistant from either party as they gravitate towards each other and there

I didn't get the "connection" between Jake and Lilly
It went too fast and too furious for me and it didn't involve a great fancy car LOL
it had great sex scenes, though...if that is to serve its purpose

Where do I begin...this reads like a beautifully orchestrated opera, the opening prologue full of darkness with tentative deep notes to draw the audience in. From the first few words I'm hooked and drawn in to a mysterious story of off kilter love. Death is ugly yet beautiful and slightly salty.

"It is the beginning of my descent into unfamiliar territory. A place you might call madness.
I'm afraid my stay was excruciatingly long."

First off, the very reason that this book has attracted me was because of the tatted cock. I mean, seriously, my mind just went black and everything else doesn’t matter, it’s the only thing that I’ve gotten all in all.

First off let me say; EDEN had me at GEORGIA LE CARRE. I'd already read "The Billionaire Banker" series and "Disfigured Love" written by Georgia and they were on my list of top favorites last year. From the very beginning of EDEN it captured my attention and I was practically glued to my seat while reading it. Her descriptions throughout the book only added to the richness of the story but never took away from it. The two main characters Lily and Jake share such an intense passion from the first ...more

Georgia Le Carre is an author of considerable talent which seems to grow even more with every book.

With Eden she gives no back story to her characters, but her writing makes it obvious. Lily has seen heartbreak in her life and has to resort to working in a 'gentleman's' club. Jake has been involved in the illegal underworld of London from the age of fifteen - but it was not, initially, his choice.

Their meeting and subsequent involvement can be no more than a coincidence...or are there other, per

DNF. I stopped at 35%. This book is very confusing. With all of the great books out there, I guess I don't have the patience for a book that's not sharp. Sounds interesting but needs serious polishing.
