Hold Me Close by Eliza Gayle - Review

Purgatory Club Book 6

Sometimes you need to cut and run and sometimes the ties run too deep to abandon.

Bonnie’s job at Purgatory keeps her on edge in more ways than one. Every day the pain of her grief over losing her Dom threatens to consume her. Her only escape comes at the hands of the resident tattooed bad boy who likes to keep things light and loose with a variety of women. He may not be the Dom of her dreams, but he chases away the darkness if only for one night…

Dex is used to unattached submissives coming to him for a chance to feel the kiss of his flogger or the sting of his whip until they find their own Doms. With his busy life of ink and kink he likes keeping his women at arm’s length. Except one night a month when Bonnie shreds him every time she asks him to hold her close.

When a secret invitation to an island resort arrives, is it the answer to their problems? Or their worst nightmare?

Wow, I’ve been following both the Purgatory series by Eliza Gayle, and this really cool Invitation to Eden series, and this book fit both of those great series. It was sexy, emotional and very entertaining.

Bonnie, is a great heroine, she’s both strong and willing to submit to the very alpha Dex. These are two characters that aren’t sure they are what the other wants, but are definitely what they both need.

Dex is a fantastic Dom, he’s very much in charge, sexy, and I would gladly take him home, through in a visit to Eden and I was so very much in love with this man. Even if at one point I wanted to yell at him, but I also wanted to yell Bonnie, because they were both so stubborn.

Very sexy and highly recommended, pick this up even if you haven’t read either series, this story won’t disappoint!

I received a copy in exchange for my honest review. I was not compensated for my review. 


  1. You know, I've been seeing this series for a while, but haven't quite yet bitten and I'm not sure why. This particular book and your post intrigue me. Does the series need to be read in order?

  2. I've picked up a couple of the books from the Invitation series but haven't tried them yet. I think it's the covers. lol I'll have to get over that and try them finally :)
