Invitation to Eden Review Tour Stop One – Pleasure Point by Eden Bradley

The island always knows what you need… 

Miranda lives in paradise – the exclusive Eden resort, the ultimate in fantasy retreats.

Roan, the resort’s dungeon consultant, lives part-time on the island and full-time in the past.

When the sexy Dominant and the sultry pastry chef both receive one of the island’s mysterious invitations they spend a sizzling week together in the dungeon suite. They’re left breathless, wanting more… and hopelessly falling.

Both have been scarred by loss, both have created a nearly impenetrable shell. The intensity and intimacy of kink might be the perfect recipe to open Miranda’s heart again. But can the man who fulfills her every secret desire ever give her what she needs the most?

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

What a lovely cover! While I like the theme of these books, this one was a little hard to get into. Both characters have lost a partner to death which kind of dulls things for me. I'm all about getting into a book but they both had a thing about failure to commit. The island brings these two together, and they learn how to get back into play together. Overall entertainment is three stars.

Miranda Royce hasn't played since she lost her husband. She hasn't had the desire or the need until she gets an invitation to Eden. She didn't realize she missed that life until it was presented to her again. When she walks into Club Sin she doesn't know what to expect but it surely isn't Roan Abrams.

Roan Abrams is a Dominant. There is no doubt about that, the way he carries himself, the way he speaks, his movements all point to the fact that he is a Dom but he has a past, a past he is trying to not think about. Miranda feels a draw to him immediately. She doesn't know if she is ready for the emotion Roan seems to pull from her. Is Miranda ready to face her fears? Is Roan? Can they work together?

I enjoyed this read. It was sexy and emotional. It's a quick read but you can easy fall into the story. This is my first read by this author but I will definitely keep an eye out for other titles.

Both Miranda and Roan are widowed, they both work for the Eden Resort, they both get an invitation to Eden that brings them together.

Miranda has not played since her husband’s death, however she cannot resist Roan’s dominant presence.

This book took me a wee while to get into, I felt for a novella it took far too long to get into the actual story. I enjoyed the book from around 50%. I liked how the story finished and for me the sex scenes saved the book.
