Review by Tiger Lily
In the beginning… God created man and called him Adam, a fine specimen replicated in his own image. He then created woman to ease Adam’s loneliness and named her Lillith. Unfortunately, God realized his mistake too late in giving woman free will, for she would rule her domain—not man. When Lillith left Adam, God created another for his first-born son, and gave her the name Eve and a kingdom called Eden, but by then it was too late, for he’d unleashed Hell into the world of man.
Sometimes things happen and we have no idea why, but our actions totally dictate how the event ends. Sound out there and metaphysical? Perhaps. Interested? Then you need to read Eden’s Hell.
Some authors strive to incorporate religion and theology into romance. Some even manage to make the story interesting. Dawne Dominique puts her own spin on the Adam/Eve/Lillith story. Many people know the Adam and Eve creation story. But what happens when Adam chooses repentance? What if Eve wasn’t all he expected? So is the story of Eden’s Hell.
Addison is a great hero because he’s not interested in a relationship. He likes his privacy and solitude, but he can’t help but want to help someone in trouble. And it doesn’t hurt that he’s sexy as all get out. You want to run your hands all over this man.
Eva, though not the Eve from the story, makes an interesting heroine because she loses faith in almost everything, but she never loses her faith in love. Even through the changes, she still keeps a heart full of light and love. She never gives up.
And the passion? Whew! You’ll need a cold shower after this one. Keep this in mind, sexy doesn’t mean graphic. These love scenes are passionate and emotional without the overt, in-your-face actions. I like the sensuality between Addison and Eva.
Although there is a lot going on in this story and it can be a bit hard to keep up with, you won’t want to put this one down.
If you want a story guaranteed to set the screen ablaze, then you need to read Eden’s Hell. I give this novella 4 cherries.
