Question Number 7999…

six

If an erotic romance book has a heroine who goes off and sleeps with a group of her friends each year, (despite having a boyfriend) does that count as a romance?

I’m currently reading Opal Carew’s Six, and I have to say, it’s probably the most sexed up, erotic romance I’ve ever read. That of course isn’t a bad thing, and since Carew knows how to write hot ER, without bringing on the need for a bath, it’s all good. Total mind candy good.

I guess I better add that the boyfriend decides to go with her, when she tells him about her annual sex-fest, with her college pals, and by some amazing coincidence, his ex shows up at the resort, desperate to win him back, which strangely enough, makes Harmony (our heroine) very jealous. The irony of her sleeping with two guys at the same time, then getting jealous because Aiden’s (our hero) ex-missus shows up, didn’t pass me by.

A warning for those of you contemplating buying this book, Six really isn’t for the faint of heart, and you’ll probably need plenty of ice to help cool you off, but once again, not a bad thing. *g*

You can buy Six, from Amazon.com here, and learn more about Opal Carew here.

    As far as fiction goes, I don’t mind it being called a romance.

    Reality wise, not so much.

    I read Blush, by Ms. Carew, and wasn’t too excited about it. I’ve read way worse (like Tempted by Megan Hart) but I wasn’t thrilled with it. Was Blush just a mediocre book for her? Should I try another one? Or is her writing consistently average?

  • I read SIX over the weekend and thought it was exciting sex with boring romance. If you’re looking for in-depth soul-searching or feelings that make sense, look elsewhere.

    I can’t decide if this is a romance or not. Maybe an open relationship romance?

  • And yeah it was definitely hot. Off the wall hot. There’s something to be said for an author who can write a heroine who loves group sex and still comes across as “sweet”!

    Hi Randi, I didn’t think that Blush was great, her other two were better, but like Jill said, if you’re looking for deep and emotional, you probably won’t find it in Carew’s books. They are fun though.

    Jill, I finished reading Six last night, and I wasn’t overly happy about Aiden’s actions near the end. Definitely not romantic.

  • I think I know what you mean. And I’m not sure what Aiden’s ex added to the story.

    I totally agree about the ex, Jill, I thought her presence was pointless, and soured the story somewhat.
