Jessica’s life was in ruins…until she met him.
Standing in the rain feeling lost in a new city, with no job and no prospects, she’s about to give up. Until Dane Rainier pulls up in his limo and offers her a ride—and sweeps her into the life of her dreams. Now she has a high-powered job and is having the best sex of her life, exploring her submissive side under the masterful hand of a gorgeous billionaire.
But there’s a part of her that’s still holding back. Because the truth is, she’s never gotten over her ex-boyfriend Storm. A heavily muscled, motorcycle-riding rock musician, Storm couldn’t be any more different from Dane… and she just can’t get him out of her head.
Now Storm is about to reappear and turn her whole world upside down. Both Dane and Storm make her body burn to be possessed, but will her indecisive heart cost her the love of both men?
HIS TO POSSESS is the first book I’ve ever read by Opal Carew and I only have one thing to say…
Holy hell where has she been hiding my whole life! She completely takes erotica above and beyond anything I’ve ever read! I was entranced with her characters and the plot just blew me away! When the story first started I was kind of worried that this would be your typical “quick read” erotic romance novel, but I was wrong. Within the first few chapters I was hooked and I seriously wanted to know more about these characters!!
Jess reminds me of your everyday girl trying to make it on her own and I loved that about her. It made her real…relatable. At times I wanted to whack her upside the head and scream, “what the hell are you doing” but if I was in her shoes I’d probably do the same things she did. She found herself stuck between this domineering man who is…omg…so alpha-male **swoon** & the man from her past that she once gave her heart to. **double swoon* Both men are drool-worthy in their own right and they both have some very redeeming qualities. You really can’t blame the girl for being stuck. She’s trying to make a new life for herself in a new city but she just can’t seem to shake her ex even though the magnificent Mr. Dane Rainier is there all too ready to help her move on.
Dane is one heck of an alpha male! He is breathtakingly gorgeous and knows how to handle Jess’ submissive side perfectly. He’s a dominant in the bedroom as well as outside of it. We can definitely see this in the way he runs his company. He knows what he wants and he isn’t afraid to go after it. Storm is altogether different from Dane. He’s free-sprited and wild…or so Jess thinks anyway until he comes barging in her new life and completely turning her life upside down. The secrets he’s been hiding are huge and it alters everything between herself and Dane.
Can Jess run back to Storm after he broke her heart and knowing he is a completely different person than he led her to believe or will Dane win her heart over for good???
HIS TO POSSESS was a very intriguing book and I was able to get lost into it immediately. Opal Carew did a great job balancing out the steamy scenes with emotion. Yes, this book has oodles of yummy goodness but it also has a lot of emotion and drama to where you connect with these characters. You want that HEA for them.
The only thing was that some of the scenes felt rushed to me. I also felt as if Jess seemed like a robot during some of the intimate scenes…like her part was sort of forced. The way she said some of the things during Dane and her encounters didn’t seem to flow very well for me. Don’t get me wrong..this didn’t take away from the overall plot or characters. I greatly enjoyed this read and I would suggest it to anyone who enjoys erotica romance with 2 guy-1 girl scenarios. I just wished the story was a little longer and not as rushed.
