Exit to Eden Book Review

Exit to Eden is written by Anne Rice and published in 1985.  

The books main character is Lisa Kelly, who manages an isolated BDSM resort, called The Club.   BDSM is an preference and a form of personal relationship involving the consensual use of restraint, intense sensory stimulation, and fantasy power role play. The acronym BDSM combines bondage and discipline dominance and submission.  This club offers clients an exclusive setting in which they can experience the life of a Master or Mistress. Prospective sex slaves volunteer to play this role and are paid at the end of their term at Eden.  In the beginning of their journey each slave is presented at auctions by the most respected trainers from across the world. As head female trainer and co-founder Lisa gets first pick of the new slaves, and chooses Elliot Slater.  Elliot is one of the most prideful slaves and she shares an  undeniable chemistry that intensifies throughout their time together, eventually resulting in love.  

This book was an interesting read.  Normally, I don't read erotica as my choice of genres.  However, my sister Stacey recommended it, so I followed like always.  The sex scenes can be steamy, and raunchy at the same time.  A few parts made me want to lay down the book and light up a cigarette.   On the other hand, the author lays the book out in a chapter format which bounces back and forth between the two main characters.  If your not paying attention to who each chapter is written for, the book can become unnerving.  I would still recommend this book to readers who enjoy the exotica genre, if it isn't your style, then don't bother.
