Taxi Tour with Review: A FARE TO REMEMBER | Opal Carew (@SMPRomance)





4.5 KINK Review | Advanced Reader Copy gifted by publisher 

This book. It’s was  much more than  I expected. Its 3/4th erotic and ¼ sweet.  An Opal Carew read is pretty much a guaranteed thigh squeezer.  I did not expect the tears of heartache however…

A Fare to Remember is a wicked hot read.    In this sexy erotic romance, there is naughty and then there is Opal Carew’s Naughty.   You have a mix of romance and seduction crisscrossed with shameless pleasure.

Stevie Trivoli is a New York City cab driver.  She is having the day from hell after discovering her boyfriend cheating.  Her love life is shattered and she does not have a place to stay.   Then Reid Jacobs a sexy billionaire in the city on business barges into the back of her cab and her life.   Their first encounter ignites a sexual spark so fiery, its leads to a night of titillating sex in a dark alley.

Later, she accepts his invitation to spend more time with him and finds herself drawn to his sexiness and dominate nature in the bedroom.  As she is drawn to his dark desire she admits to him her own aren’t as wholesome as he believe.  So, when she meets his best friend and business partner Dylan, their attraction ups the ante in the sexual heat department.

Instantly Stevie is fantasizing about mind-blowing sex with Reid and Dylan.   So, it’s no surprise how quickly Reid, Dylan and Stevie are grappling with sexual desires they never anticipated before.   You have a mix of M/F; M/F /M; and M/M/F sexcapades rolled into one story.  And trust me there is a difference.

The hot trio turns into moments of secret longings and scorching desires.  With the help of his best friend, Reid sets out to show Stevie how accommodating his bad boy ways can be.  But unless he can inspire her trust as well, what happens between them will only remain a once in a lifetime torrid affair.

The more Reid try to convince Stevie to open her heart the more she continues to hold back.  She has secrets of her own that keeps getting in the way.     When life throws a curve ball into their reality Stevie must make a choice.  She can remain painfully and selfishly independent. Or she can let go of her pride and admit there is more than passion binding her and Reid together.

Reid and Dylan are a woman’s dream in the “your wish is my command sex department.”    The author manages to take the normal mechanics of a ménage and twist it into jaw-dropping moments of ” I can’t believe they just did that.”

Toward the end, Stevie’s character  became too stubborn and prideful for my personal taste.  I wanted to scream at her.  On the other hand, I appreciated  how she was determine to keep the sexual balance among the three of them.  Her feelings of conflict when her desire for Dylan was separate from her desire for Reid showed great character in being open and honest with both.
