Product Description

Quill & Quire

Forbidden Heat, the latest erotic novel by Opal Carew, is unfortunately lacking in both aspects of its titular promise. Relying heavily on trite phrases, clichéd situations, and stereotypical notions of feminine desire, the book is a mediocre romance at best.

The novel tells the tale of three college friends reunited under sexy circumstances. Danielle, Jake, and Trey quickly form a threesome, engaging in wild weekends and shedding clothing for a romp every couple of pages. This in itself isn’t a problem, but the accompanying lack of character development quickly becomes off-putting. Unable to distinguish between the two male romantic leads (except in terms of the almost gag-inducing references to Jake’s ponytail), readers are bound to tune out when it comes to the endless cataloguing of exactly whose “cock-head” is plumbing whose “slick opening.”

For a two-guy/one-gal threesome story, there’s also surprisingly little anal sex, and though the female is quick to get down on her knees, the men rarely touch each other – despite a backstory that perpetually notes they had once been lovers. Poor, confused Danielle keeps telling herself that she is merely reuniting her gay friends, all the while getting screwed six ways to Sunday by the dynamic duo. Naturally, she doesn’t see her own happy ending coming. Despite bland obstacles, the lovers will continue their blissful love triangle forevermore, panting and moaning all the way. Too bad readers won’t care, as they never get close to these naughty boys and their gal pal.

The language of the book’s contrived sex scenes quickly becomes repetitive. Instead of employing “pussy” or its even coarser Germanic equivalent, Carew refers to Danielle’s lady bits as her “opening” on nearly all occasions. This is changed up with the modifiers “slick” or “wet,” and even “back” for one anal dalliance, but such hesitant language coming from a writer of smut seems as appropriate as a priest in a whorehouse.

Hot and lovely - just how I like erotic romances Jan. 14 2010
By Tester - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
"Forbidden Heat" by Opal Carew is a very sexy and lovely erotic romance that left me happy and with a warm and fuzzy feeling.

Danielle Rayne's quiet and simple life is about to change.
When she meets two of her former best friends, Jack and Trey, again, she realizes how much she missed their friendship. Trey and Jack were a pair when Danielle last met them and she always admired their great relationship. But when she learns that they broke up years ago she realizes that things have changed.
In college she was in love with both men but never did something about it. But now it's her chance to spend an exciting night with both of them.
What starts as a casual and very hot reunion soon changes when Danielle, Jack and Trey continue their unusual relationship and love finds it way into their hearts.

I enjoyed "Forbidden Heat" a lot. The characters are great and the relationship that develops between them is so fascinating, hot and also sweet.
There are a lot of very erotic and sexy scenes, so be prepared. The chemistry between Danielle, Jack and Trey is amazing and I loved every scene with the three of them.
Danielle is the focus of the relationship. She is a very sweet and caring person, who doesn't believe in love for herself. She wants to get Jake and Trey back together but can't stop from falling in love with both of them.
Jake and Trey are two hot and great guys, both need to accept that their realtionship has changed and that Danielle is the best thing that ever happened to them.

If you are a fan of erotic romances with strong characters you will love this book. I'm already excited for the next book by Opal Carew, which is coming in June 2010 and is called "Bliss".

No real heat May 21 2010
By Tmarie2010 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I ordered this book based on the recommendations. I've never read this author before but thought the plot seemed interesting so I gave it a shot. I'm sorry to say I was disappointed and didn't find the characters engaging or very interesting. I found the sex scenes and the dialogue repetative. How many times can you use the phrase "hard c*ck" without it getting way old. If you are looking for steamy, try the Dark Elves books. They are much more entertaining and original.

awesome hot and erotic June 27 2013
By sunshine - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
not bdsm, but follows some of the people in Opals book SIX and SWING, but each is a stand alone book , but I would recommend them all. Six was my favorite although could not put any of them down . Read each one is one sitting. Great author, great books.... Not sure if Blush goes with them but will be buying that one too. I recommend this book and the others I mentioned very highly.. steamy sexy and great love stories. Not vanilla, but not all fifty shades either, Opal rates up there with maya banks breathless and Sylvia days, crossfire trilogies which are better than fifty shade... look for my other reviews for great reads.. Lets not forget Jackie Collins too,, I read this book in 4 hours, just could not put it down.
Forbidden Heat March 24 2010
By Kelly - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Danielle Rayne had been harboring a secret lust for Trey Garner and Jake Jamieson since college. It was one of the reasons she had transferred to a different college, and didn't graduate with the few friends she had made. She couldn't bear being around the two lovers when she couldn't have them and wanted so desperately to be with them. When her friend Harmony got married, she thought it would be a perfect opportunity to reconnect with the two men she still missed.

Her memory didn't compare to reality when she finally laid eyes on Trey and Jake. They still had a disturbing effect on her libido, and when they approached her about exploring her secret desire to be with them both, she accepted with an equally secret agenda. She had heard Trey and Jake were no longer together, and she made it her mission to make sure the true love between them won out.

Dani wasn't prepared for the intense passion that developed between them all. She had tried to protect her fragile heart, but lost that battle! This was a very good read with balance between very sexy passionate encounters and well developed story. You will become engaged from the beginning, and that level of intensity lasts throughout. This is a keeper, and one not to be missed.

torrid erotic relationship drama Jan. 8 2010
By Harriet Klausner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
When Jake, Trey and Danielle attended college together, the latter was heavily attracted to both her best friends. However, Danielle concealed her feelings because Jake and Trey were seeing others.

They have not seen one another for awhile, but catch up on old times at Harmony's wedding in Buffalo. Danielle is euphoric to learn that her two buddies are single, available, and most important bisexual. They act on their desire with a ménage a trois, but each has issues with their sexual leanings that must be worked out before they can come to some sort of mutually harmonious arrangement.

This is a torrid erotic relationship drama as the three lead characters must work out who they and what they want from the others besides great sex. The story line is filled with various sexual encounters and each of the threesome is fully developed. Although the issues blocking them coming to terms are too underdeveloped and abrupt premature ejaculated resolution, sub-genre fans will enjoy the Forbidden Heat the trio indulge in as the sex comes (literally) in several ways.
