Verdict: I DNF’d not because it wasn’t interesting but because it came with trigger warnings and I listened. I went in based on the book cover and quick reading through description that it is completely on me that I ended up having to DNF.
2ND EDITION Cathryn is a bookish 19-year-old girl who has just begun to embark on her university life, when she, along with a couple of friends, is abducted during a sorority party by a group of armed men who work for the Brotherhood, an international crime syndicate, involved in human trafficking, drug dealing, and other criminal activities. She is taken under the wings of Alec, one of the henchmen, for almost a year. Throughout which time, they test each other’s sexual boundaries, and he comes to develop an obsession for her.
But is this kind of love real, and can this kind of love last a lifetime?
you name it, this book has them all.
Set against the lush backdrop of the Tenderloin in San Francisco, all the way across the Pacific Ocean, to Osaka, Japan, Claiming You in Eden will take you on an emotional rollercoaster ride. Ultimately, this novel tells the triumphant story of one sexual assault survivor, as she navigates the world after her ordeal, with the help of those around her; in other words, not your usual abduction romance story.
Warning: Contains mature themes and dark triggers. Recommended only for 18 years old and above.
