Not that I have anything against same sex relations, it's just not my preference to read about it.
The storyline was okay, nothing exciting but was disappointed that I had no pre-warning about what to expect in regards to the sexual relationships described in the book.

Reviewed for Cocktails and Books March 30 2013
By Cocktails and Books - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
"I read the premise for this book and knew I wanted to read it. It's not a traditional male/female romance. It's hot, hot, hot, and did I say hot!!

Lindsay is reeling from the experience of walking in on her boyfriend in bed with 2 other women. He defends his infidelity by telling her that she is boring in bed and her mother reinforces his opinion. Needless to say Lindsay is short on self-esteem and confidence. She literally bumps into 3 hot guys on an elevator and begins to imagine sex with them. A mysterious invitation arrives and her wildest dreams are fulfilled.

The storyline here was weak. One of the males, Erik, had a supernatural ability to read minds and sets up the fantasy weekend. Lindsay arrives at their home thinking she will meet her friend, but she never even calls the friend to confirm or get more information. Shortly after she arrives two of the men , Conner and Travis) have sex by the pool. It dawns on her that this isn't the work of her friend and she realizes that she is there to have sex with the men (Erik, Conner, and Travis) she tries to leave and they have to coax her to stay. They do this by allowing her to have sex with Erik first. Conner and Travis leave. But why? She didn't want to be boring in bed, liked watching the guys having sex, had a connection with Erik and they still had to coddle her to get her to stay? I don't like storylines where the girl knows what she wants but you have to persuade her before she feels entitled to pursue her desires. She also fled at the first sign of conflict. They had to seek her out twice to get her to come back. I kept wanting her to be sexually liberated enough by her fantasy weekend that she would know Erik wanted her and have the chutzpah to fight for him. The other two guys obviously wanted her. I wanted to see her breeze past Erik and tell him it was his problem if he didn't want her. I attribute that to my feminist leanings.

I was a little afraid that this wouldn't really be a romance but a long versions of hardcore porn, but I was pleasantly surprised that I did connect with each character. Travis carried some scars from the rejection of his family because of his bisexuality. It was so touching when he allowed Lindsay to actually hug him and help heal the hurt. I teared up because so many people have been hurt and ostracized because of their sexuality. I could feel in that moment Travis becoming liberated from his past. So even though you have 3 men and one woman you see the power of love in each of their lives through the bonds they have forged begin to set them free to fully love and be loved. It was a true romance. I loved that the author had male/male sexual action. Many authors have multiple partners but only write about the women being sexually active with each other. The men are depicted as watching, enjoying, and participating at will. Again more of my feminist rhetoric but this was really a bright spot, and I wasn't at all uncomfortable with the sexual interactions. There was genuine, love, care, and respect among all parties. The author gave very detailed descriptions of the sexual scenes in a very tasteful manner.

If you like romance don't be afraid to dive right in I promise you will enjoy it. If you want to take a step up from the erotic novellas and short stories to something written more tastefully and with more length give this book a try.

The chemistry involving Lindsay, Erik, Travis, and Connor was good. Feb. 27 2013
By Cheryl Koch - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Lindsay is on her way to visit a friend. She rushes to the elevator only to run face first into a solid male chest of muscle. Once she removes herself from the chest she realizes that she is surrounded by three nice males.

Erik can sense that Lindsay is into him. Erik takes a chance and mysteriously invites Lindsay to a fun weekend. At first Lindsay thinks the invite is from her girlfriend and they are going to have a ladies weekend but once she realizes who the invite is from and that it is not a ladies weekend but more of a sexual one, will Lindsay accept?

In regards to erotic authors, Opal Carew is one of the best. She really knows how to spice things up and make me need a cool glass of water. There was no shortage of hot male flesh and foursomes in this book. Which sometimes I am not for foursomes or even threesomes for the fact that when you get these many people involved it just does not work well together. This can be a big problem. However I did not have to worry about this in this book.

The chemistry involving Lindsay, Erik, Travis, and Connor was good. However it was really obvious that the true sexual chemistry fell between Lindsay and Erik. This is where then I was fully invested in just Lindsay and Erik that it felt like then that Travis and Connor were the extra wheels in the group. For a woman like me who would never have the courage to voice out loud any type of sexual fantasies I might have, Erik's secret would be perfect for me. To have a guy like him. My only other criticism is that Erik got to be a downer worrying about how Lindsay was going to react to his secret. Otherwise this was a good book.

A scorching foursome March 22 2013
By Elf2060 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
4 1/2 stars.

"Illicit" by Opal Carew is the sizzling erotic romance that centers around Lindsay Reed who gets a mysterious invitation that somehow reflects a fantasy come true. A hedonistic weekend with three amazingly sensual men who are themselves in a committed relationship does wonders to restore Lindsay's self-confidence in herself as a woman. Unfortunately, one of the trio, policeman Erik Hamilton, fears the effects of permanently introducing a woman into the stable situation that he currently has and he has a secret that he fears to share. Both Lindsay and Erik must continue to work through their insecurities if they are going to continue to share the incandescent loving that the quartet has found so delightful.

This is a very sensual contemporary romance that celebrates a menage a quatre (foursome) that forms between three men and the woman who just happens to take an elevator ride with them. It was somewhat disconcerting to watch Lindsay access her inner sex goddess so abruptly but she most assuredly has plenty of encouragement and inspiration in the three hunky males that definitely enjoy each other's bodies and are willing to add her to their circle. The sizzling fantasies that are exchanged between the four of them include voyeurism, role-playing, mild bondage and a bit of public naughtiness. I wasn't terribly enamored of Erik's handling of his issues but fortunately his lovers find a way to resolve things without too much continued angst. There are mild paranormal elements and an overall theme of fantasy in this very hot read which should help chase away those cold winter blues.

Nobody does erotica better than Opal Carew! She takes me into a world I wouldn't dare try and makes it sound enticing.
