What began as a steamy weekend fling is about to change their lives forever.
When Lindsay receives a mysterious invitation to live out her most illicit fantasies, she thinks it's her best friend playing a joke. Little does she know, the invitation is from someone else. Someone who knows her deepest desires…and intends to fulfill them.
Erik is a man of many secrets, and he intends to keep it that way. When he invites Lindsay to his mansion, he thinks it's just for a steamy weekend fling. But from their first night together, there's an inexplicably deep connection that shakes him to his core. And with Lindsay in his arms, he feels both thrilled and unnerved. As Lindsay brings his fantasies to life, he's unwilling to let her go. But can he tell her how he knows her deepest desires, and will she stay with him if she learns the truth?
You're invited…to explore your most forbidden desires with ILLICIT from author Opal Carew.
Pretty good overall.
I borrowed this book from a co-worker after reading the 50 Shades trilogy. I realize it's an erotic novel, but the sex scenes become somewhat repetitive. I found myself skipping some paragraphs in the sex scenes because the description of what the characters were doing were the same as prior scenes.
No character development leads the book to feel somewhat bland. Carew focuses on describing body parts in detail rather than the surroundings and setting, leading the book to be carried by the sex scenes.
Another negative factor is the "secret" that Erik holds. It's a little odd and is used as the "climax" point in the book, but once again it's not something major that leaves the reader to think "what's going to happen next". In all honesty, Illicit is pretty predictable.
This book has potential, yet it falls short with the plot and overall feel. I read it in one sitting, within 4 hrs.
