I’ve read a lot of steamy, sexy romances. But this one, whew, I won’t soon forget. Stefani Trivoli, or Stevie as her friends call her, is having a very bad day. She caught her boyfriend in bed with another woman. So she threw a couple of suitcases in the trunk of the cab she drives for a living and left. Now she is homeless, hurt and angry. Her friend calls her and jokingly tells her she should screw the next customer she picks up, sort of a get back on the horse right away kind of advice. Well, just as he said it, a very suave, very good looking business man climbs into the back seat. Let’s just say that Stevie took her friend’s advice. Stevie has no interest in getting back into a relationship. Twice, now, she has been hurt badly. But this guy ignites something within her. Something she didn’t know was there. He wants more than one night. The question is, can she give it to him? Reid Jacobs is a very rich entrepreneur. He knows what he wants and he goes after it. When the sexy cabbie comes on to him, he doesn’t hesitate. But he knows once will not be enough. Reid has some very particular proclivities when it comes to sex. He likes to be in complete control, for his partner to submit to him. Will Stevie submit to him? Stevie and Reid had chemistry like the fourth of July. When Reid has to go to work, though, and leaves Stevie in his apartment, she is quite surprised when Dylan Cole shows up and thinks she is trespassing. Dylan is Reid’s business manager I believe. But he is also his best friend. He is the complete opposite of Reid. Where Reid wears his designer suits, Dylan wears jeans and t-shirts and has several tattoos. Stevie reacts to Dylan immediately. How can this be? They are so different. She is not in a relationship with Reid, though. But just the same, she feels guilty for feeling attracted to Dylan. Reid wants Stevie to stay and will do whatever he has to convince her. When Stevie proposes experimenting with the three of them together, Reid is all in, as is Dylan. Okay, I’ll stop here and add a few of my thoughts. First, I don’t really enjoy the whole master/submission thing. And this started out that way, but to my delight, it quickly moved on. These three together were crazy sexy. Stevie, though, has some very definite ideas about people with money from her own experiences. And this is one of the things keeping her from wanting to get in any deeper emotionally with Reid and Dylan. But the more time she is with Reid, the more she sees that he just might be the exception to what she has known in the past. Also, I really, really loved Dylan. And at times, I felt like he was getting a bum deal with this. The strongest emotional bond was forming between Stevie and Reid. He was just sort of the third wheel. But he was falling for her as well. Still, he seemed completely happy with things and I think their bond will continue to strengthen. Going in I wasn’t expecting to love this book as much as I did. I loved these three and like I’ve said a bunch of times already, it is crazy hot. If you enjoy this type of romance, I highly recommend it. I loved it and can’t wait to read more by Opal Carew!

This book is not only remarkable in the sack with the MFM (including a bit of MM action and a small flash of bdsm) and the sweet love affair. But it's also has a little bit of theme spinoff from the classic movie An Affair to Remember with Deborah Kerr and Cary Grant. This story is definitely one to remember. Extremely well written, with the steam and heat off the charts, and an ending that makes you hold your breath hoping for the best. This story is a winner in my book! Opal Carew did not disappoint! Loaded with spicy erotica and an awesome read overall! * Copy received for review consideration.

    Our story begins when cabdriver Stefani "Stevie" Trivoli picks up a customer and Reid Jacobs steps in. Stevie has just had her heart broken by her cheating ex-boyfriend and is instantly attracted to the handsome businessman that has stepped into her cab. She is a fiercely independent woman and after encouraging words from her gay best friend she sleeps with Reid, even though they know nothing about each other.

Stevie has just had her heart broken by her cheating ex-boyfriend and is instantly attracted to the handsome businessman that has stepped into her cab. She is a fiercely independent woman and after encouraging words from her gay best friend she sleeps with Reid, even though they know nothing about each other. After talking with Reid, and having him invite her to be his escort at a lavish party, she realises he is a billionaire and Stevie has a bad history with the rich and famous. She feels a strong attraction to him but can she overcome her bad past? There were quite a few things that I disliked about this story and I feel like the blurb needs to contain a note at the bottom that lets readers know that this has BDSM, m/m and ménage a trois. While I am a very open person and love to read about all the topics mentioned, this is simply marketed as a romance story when it goes far beyond that, and I believe readers should know what they are getting into. I really did not like that both men (Reid and his best friend who we are introduced to later, Dylan Cole) used no protection, didn't ask Stevie if she was okay with it, or if she was on the pill or anything. I can't remember any book I've read where it wasn't even discussed but just ignored entirely. Especially when (view spoiler)[Stevie gets tied up by Reid and he uses a ball gag and they literally have zero conversations about it beforehand, like if she needs a safeword or heck, if she is even into that kinda stuff?? (hide spoiler)] The insta-love was also very crazy and not well done. They go from spending a bit of time together (all sexual) and then (view spoiler)[Reid proposes at the end! (hide spoiler)] . Insta-love can be done well when I truly understand why the characters feel so connected but in this novel, besides being attracted to one another, I really don't see why Stevie loves Reid and vice-versa. There was a scene when they were having dinner and the author could have had them talk and get to know each other but it was cut short and they immediately went to have sex. Overall I think I would have enjoyed this if the author had stuck to one subject or at least let the reader know what this was actually about. Carew is very gifted at writing steamy scenes, especially when both Reid and Dylan were involved but there needed to be more to the story than just that. The major drama that happened wasn't really resolved for me either and the ending was just a HEA that didn't make sense for either character. Also, with my Goodreads librarian powers I changed the synopsis to Reid's name, instead of Rex (if any of you were wondering while reading other reviews that mentioned this mysterious "Rex") |Featherbrained Books Blog | Twitter |

Reid does talk her into having sex with him and Stevie puts her own demands on it. Then afterwards Reid asked her to go to a business party with him which leads them into a relationship of sorts. Reid's best friend named Dylan gets into their mix and brings an even hotter step into their relationship. This does end with a HEA.

    A Fare to Remember was a bit of a surprise. I did not know this was a menage story when I started it. I thought the author handling the unlikely pair of a woman cab driver and a billionaire business man, as well as adding in the best friend into the relationship was done very well. The whole story was well put together. Stevie had a few "too stubborn" moments but that is the only negative I have. ARC provided by NetGalley. A Fare to Remember was a bit of a surprise.

It’s HOT! There are plenty of sexual encounters and hot scenes. Now, If you expect monogamy, this novel is not for you. You have been warned. Stevie Trivoli is a taxi driver who just found out her boyfriend was cheating on her. Her bags are in her car and she knows she will need a new place to stay. Stevie is a strong woman but this isn't the first time a man has hurt her. Stevie's talking on the phone with her best friend when her next customer gets inside. He's an attractive businessman who strikes a personal conversation with her and who doesn't hide the desire to get to know her better. Steve is attracted to him but she doesn't want to make the same mistake and involve her heart ever again. This time she wants something casual. Reid Jacobs is in town just to close on a new business deal when he meets Stevie. He likes what he sees and he wants to convince her to give him a chance. He knows Stevie is different than other women he has been with. She doesn't seem to be interested in his money or his power. He doesn't want to disregard the connection they share. Letting her go is not an option. Convincing her to attend a dinner business meeting with him is a must. After one night with her, he's sure this could go somewhere. He just needs to make her see it too. Things get a lot more complicated when his best friend Dylan enters the picture and so does her ex-fiancée. A Fare to Remember had good characters. It was fast-paced and very entertaining. I read it in just one sitting. I like both main characters. Stefani knew what she wanted and she was not shy about it. Reid was also likable. It was easy to fall for him. He didn't play any games and was willing to do anything to keep Stevie with him. I felt bad for Dylan. He was sweet and I thought he deserved more. Maybe he'll get his own book? Cliffhanger: No 3/5 Fangs A complimentary copy was provided by St. Martin's Press in exchange for an honest review.

It had just as much plot as I imagine a pornographic film would, meaning it was pretty thinly developed and barely made sense, stringing together the erotic scenes rather than composing a story. The description for this book is 100% inaccurate, especially since 'Rex' is not a character in this book. The handsome billionaire is Reid, and what the description also doesn't say is that Stevie becomes entangled in a menage-a-trois with Reid's roommate and business partner, Dylan (who is also a billionaire, but he's different, he's 'bad' because he has tattoos). The first part of the book takes place over only a couple of days, and both Reid and Stevie fall head over heels in love, which is ridiculous, particularly when it seemed like she had a better connection and more things in common with Dylan the whole time. The 'conflict' makes no sense (jealousy over Stevie's ex-fiance) and is not earned. The smut is the entire purpose of this book, and in general, it's fine. It's racy and explicit, and if that's what you're here for, well, you got it. There are many parts that are so unrealistic they border on fantasy. Things like consent and safety are totally overlooked, and none of the characters even seem to acknowledge it. There are no STIs or pregnancy risks in this alternate universe. Arousal is nearly instant. If you like your smut to have a little foreplay, look away, because this isn't for you. There's a 'twist' near the end right before the HEA is supposed to be achieved, and it came out of nowhere (figuratively and literally), and just tosses a weird conflict in between the two characters. When they finally begin to sort things out, (view spoiler)[he immediately proposes marriage to her. (hide spoiler)] I laughed out loud. It was just completely ridiculous. Technical elements: Where do I even begin? This book is riddled with typos, missing words, wrong words, and other errors. I find it hard to believe that such a large publisher would go ahead with this, but there you go. Romance is generally considered to be the bottom of the barrel in the literary world because it's written by women for women, and I can rail against that another day, but this book in particular is a good example of why it's not taken seriously. Ever heard of purple prose? Here's a great example for you. Every single time a character's eyes are references (looking, gazing, etc., included), the author includes the specific eye color they have. Reid's eyes are described as 'cobalt blue' 18 times (and that's not the only shade of blue they are called, but seriously?). Any time there is a meal served, it's described like it would be on a menu. The male anatomy is so overly described it's painful. She calls the female outer labia 'petals'. I won't go on. Final thoughts: This book reminded me of terrible fan fiction. I've seen more subtle storylines on soap operas. If you're looking for a hyper-unrealistic erotic m/f/m fantasy, here it is. If you want an actual story with character development, look elsewhere. I recommend Nina Lane or Tiffany Reisz.

She's just broken up with her cheating boyfriend of two years and has moved out with no place to stay.

Stevie is having a rough day. She's just broken up with her cheating boyfriend of two years and has moved out with no place to stay. However, the day starts to take a change for the better when gorgeous billionaire, Reid Jacobs, hops into her cab. The attraction and heat between these two characters is off the charts from the start as they get to know each other through conversation, a romp in an alleyway, and so much more after that. Throw in Reid's best friend and business partner, Dylan Cole, into the mix and this novel has increased in its level of hot and complex. With A Fare to Remember, Ms. Carew has created a hot, erotic, and multi-faceted romance that's not just sensual but filled with a plot that has twists and drama among its main characters that keep the story moving easily. As a heroine, Stevie (Sefani) has both a past that she is distancing herself from and a personal drive to stand on her own, which will not allow Reid or Dylan to overwhelm her even when they join forces. Stevie is guarded (with reason), but Reid and Dylan will not let her past issues (especially with the ultra-rich) prevent them from a real future with her instead of just a night or two. In regards to the relationship among Stevie, Reid, and Dylan, I liked their connection though I would have liked certain dynamics to be explored further and certain scenes handled with a bit more depth/emotion especially in the ending, more specifically with Dylan. Overall, A Fare to Remember by Opal Carew was a fun and passionate read, with some very erotic scenes. I recommend. (I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book I received from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for my open and honest review.)

    I think that the blurb for this book gives a false narrative of what to expect of this story. Luckily, I'm pretty open-minded and can deal with some pretty taboo things in my romance novels but I foresee some upset readers who stumble upon this book and get a little surprise from the actual content.

    I was grateful to receive a free copy of a Fare to Remember in exchange for an honest review. I'll be honest, the title didn't seem that appealing, and I kept saving this book in my "to read" folder. Big mistake. This book was great. The chemistry was good, the characters were all likable, and there were a few pleasant surprises. I would highly recommend this book as long as you are comfortable with mmf and mm scenes.

The story quickly turns from a twosome into a menage, and there are m/m and m/f and mixed scenes here as Dylan and Reid discover that in pleasing Stevie they enjoy pleasing each other too. But there were some things that were problematic for me. There's a scene early on where Reid uses a ball gag and ties Stevie up - and there has been no conversation about consent/safe words. What if she doesn't like it? What if she wants to stop? She's got no way to tell him. If you want to introduce BDSM elements into a story, then you need to bring up everything that makes it viable including consent and after care. Later on there's a double penetration scene with no prep - ouch! The conflict and surprising plot twist that comes in the second half is a bit out of the blue and I've a hard time believing that if you were in a somewhat committed relationship, you'd let the things happen that do in this story. Eventually we do get a happy ending with Reid and Stevie professing their love for each other and Dylan along for the ride (not sure how long he will fit into the picture as it isn't a triad relationship exactly, more of a twosome with an extra). If you're not so concerned about plot details and just want some hot sex scenes, you'll find lots to enjoy here if you can overlook some of the things that troubled me. I'll still read more from this author in the future, but this one is a miss for me. 2.5 stars. Note: a copy of this story was provided by the publisher via NetGalley for review.

The tone of the book changed completely, though not all that much for the better. At least I can justify one more star for the rating just for an attempt at a storyline. I found the plot extremely weak and the characters unbelievable and unappealing. But it was mostly the stupidity of the whole thing that annoyed me. The author was contradictory from one sentence to the next, leading me to wonder if she actually read what she'd just written. This is supposedly a love story between two people who meet in a taxi when Reid gets into Stevie's cab one evening. She is naturally beautiful, and within minutes of meeting two things happen. One is that she starts referring to him as a billionaire to his face, even though he never said anything about himself other than he has a business, and the second is that they pop into a dark alley and have unprotected sex up against a wall. It is supposedly the best sex ever for both of them. Shaking my head here... it made me want to gag a little. I wondered if he were famous, and she recognized him, and that's how she knew he was a billionaire, but then she asked him his last name, so it was just her assumption that he never denies. Soon after this, she meets his best friend Dylan, and despite the fact that Dylan does his best to humiliate her, she finds herself wildly attracted to him as well. She also starts referring to him as a billionaire, despite knowing absolutely nothing about him other than he wears expensive jeans and is Reid's friend. I totally do not get this. Apparently "billionaire" in the author's mind is someone who dresses in nice clothes and has a job, Wow. The book is really a vehicle for sex scenes, and as a reader who enjoys reading a good one, I have to say they let me down almost every time. Quantity does not mean quality, dear author. And for some totally unknown reason, just calling someone "Sir" or "Master" probably doesn't turn women on as much as she'd like us to believe. Reid goes from telling her to call him by name to calling him "Master" and the whole thing comes across as sex written by an adolescent. It's just plain silly. I gagged again a bit. And any guy who ties a woman up without asking permission within hours of meeting her is NOT someone worth pursuing. The contradictions I mentioned earlier abound. Reid first tells her he loves hearing her make noise, then he gags her and tells her not to make a peep when he removes the gag, but within seconds he is ordering her to beg loudly. He tells her he loves it when she begs. Oh ugh. Make up your mind. The author also says Stevie didn't pack any of her sexy underwear, but miraculously the next day she is wearing sexy panties. So... which is it? Later she goes back to her apartment and picks up her sexy stuff. Naturally Dylan is thrown into the mix so they can carry on a threesome. And this arrangement seems pretty poorly concocted. It also resulted in what seemed to me as totally devoid of any care for Dylan's feelings by the other two. He's just a toy apparently. Oh, excuse me... a Billionaire Toy. I got the feeling that the author had a checklist of things that were supposed to make these people interesting and the story compelling. Billionaires. Beautiful, headstrong woman. BDSM (was that even what this was supposed to be??). Threesome. But what I got out of it was: three people repeatedly having unprotected sex with a stranger and the main male character professing undying love after about a day and a half. Stupid, stupid, stupid. The ARC has some serious editing issues. Perhaps these will be corrected before it goes public.

    Received from NetGalley for a honest review. When you think of erotic romance writers, Opal Carew is right up there with the best. This story is no different. With the play-on words A Fare to Remember takes us to a chance meeting in a cab by Reid & Stevie. And right from the beginning things get hot. Add a best friend...... A hot sexy ménage and everything you'd expect in an Opal Carew story. Received from NetGalley for a honest review.

    Stevie is a female cabbie who just found her live in in bed with another woman, she grabs a few things, packs them and tosses them in the trunk of her cab. She picks up a passenger Reid who happens to be a billionaire (aren't they all) who strikes up a conversation with her. He's unlike any of her other fares. That's an understatement. Reid and Stevie do the wild thing in an alley in between the stops he needs to make. He throws down the gauntlet sexually with her and she picks it up. A little re Stevie is a female cabbie who just found her live in in bed with another woman, she grabs a few things, packs them and tosses them in the trunk of her cab. She picks up a passenger Reid who happens to be a billionaire (aren't they all) who strikes up a conversation with her. He's unlike any of her other fares. That's an understatement. Reid and Stevie do the wild thing in an alley in between the stops he needs to make. He throws down the gauntlet sexually with her and she picks it up. A little reluctantly, but she does. Money doesn't phase Stevie, she's been there, done that. Burned badly before by that, it's the one thing that keeps her from Reid. Reid has dom tendencies, which he begins to use with her and the story seems to move along nicely. Stevie isn't too sure about the whole submissive thing, but she likes the sex. But then we get Reid's best friend Dylan in the mix, who becomes part 3 in what starts as a M/F story, now twists into a M/M, MFM, M/F and I scratched my head thinking what the hell? Let me also mention all was unprotected sex. Yes the sex is over the top hot. Maybe even a little overdone considering the story. Because wait, the only story left here is the three of them in bed or on the couch... you get the picture. What starts as Reid falling in love with Stevie and wanting to make her his, spirals out of control into some redundant sexcapade. I don't mind smoking hot nasty, and I'd have preferred she'd stayed on the dom meme because the story would have made more sense. But it just derailed. When Reid pushes for a little more commitment and having just seen a piece of her past that reminds her what money does to people, she wants time to think. He's all onboard with that. But she decides....???? Yeah, no spoiler. And when a life threatening mishaps occurs, he doesn't know what's happened, for quite some time. Like months. When he does finds her at a diner after being directed there by Dylan, he is over the top pissed and doesn't let her explain. Pissed!!?? Ah yeah, I don't think so. So when he realizes how badly he's screwed up, he goes and makes nice... and then. Wait for it.... she's a little anxious to get back in the sack with him and he is afraid he's going to hurt her. This woman he professes his love to, about and manipulates the hell out of things and what does he do? Lets his best friend have first whack at her? NO!!! JUST FREAKING NO!! I love the authors stories and this one started on the right track but she swung a major u turn on a one way street with this one. There were a couple other things that bothered me about this too during that scene while she's conscious of her scars from the accident, there isn't a big emphasis placed on that which was good, however the subtle inference from Reid that she was no longer able to perform. (Although her mouth still worked) That left me feeling that in that moment he didn't see her as a whole person. I'm not saying she wasn't changed by the accident, because she was. But the way he handled that first sexual encounter was just insulting to anyone who has any, and I do mean any sort of physical infirmity. Including a bad back from too much yard work or pregnant woman. Enough said. 3 stars was a stretch. Now that I've vented, I'm dropping that to 2. **arc from NetGalley and publisher in exchange for a fair review**

She walks in to her apartment to find her boyfriend of two years screwing someone else. To make matters worse, the event occurred in the apartment she shared with her now ex, so Stevie is homeless. After talking with her gay bestie, who suggests she sleep with the next man to enter her cab, the next man who enters her cab overhears the conversation (he couldn't miss it, she was on speaker phone), and propositions Stevie. She refuses at first, but the man is handsome, she's horny and finally accepts his offer. After a quickie up against an alley wall, she learns that she just had sex with Reid Jacobs, who is a billionaire. Stevie HATES billionaires, but you don't know the reason why until much later, and her reason, once you find out, is pathetic and juvenile. Reid asks Stevie to join him for a business party as his escort, offering to pay her for the whole evening. Shades of Pretty Woman become apparent quickly, but that's where the similarities end. What the author neglects to mention in her blurb is that this is both a Dominant story, which, for unexplained reasons begins and ends so quickly you'll think you imagined that scene, and this is also a ménage a trois story. I didn't mind either storyline, but I minded that no protection was used, and neither one of the men, Reid nor his best friend Dylan, bothered to check to see if Stevie was on the pill. Most Doms' main concern is the safety and wellbeing of the woman he is with. This was not the case here. The author also threw in an ex-fiancé that wanted to get back together. That storyline was annoying because that's when Stevie's past comes to light, and while the fiances' reasons for ending the engagement were valid, it showed he had no spine, and she didn't really love him anyway, so her reason for hating billionaires was ridiculous. Ms. Carew also did a play on words with her title, which she often does. Here, the title refers to the classic movie An Affair to Remember. The ending of that movie is almost the exact same as in this story. Part of my dislike for this story is that there is no background provided on Reid or Dylan, but slightly more information is provided about Stevie. It was bizarre in this day and age of Google, that neither Stevie or Reid Googled the other, to at least make sure that neither was sleeping with a serial killer. I also really disliked Stevie. I felt like she led Reid on, despite her saying she didn't want anything serious, her actions showed otherwise. Her stubbornness also really got to me. She was so rigid in being independent that she overlooked the fact that Reid was okay with that. The ending left a lot to be desired in that no explanations are given in what had happened to Stevie (spoiler-so I won't say what happened), so the reader is once again at a loss. I think if Ms. Carew had stuck to one theme, this would have been a very hot story, but there were so many unbelievable moments that I kept putting this down, rolling my eyes, saying WTF, and then picking this book back up and attempting to finish this book.

    I made the mistake of reading reviews before finishing this book--I had a few pop up when I added it to my GRs Currently Reading. One of the issues I took with some of the reviews is the confusion with labeling in genres, specifically the distinction between Romance and Erotica. I was given this book by Netgalley and it was clearly labelled as Erotica. And that is what the story is, Erotica--where the story is sex driven. There is a love story, but it doesn't arrive to that emotion as easily as I made the mistake of reading reviews before finishing this book--I had a few pop up when I added it to my GRs Currently Reading.

I was given this book by Netgalley and it was clearly labelled as Erotica. And that is what the story is, Erotica--where the story is sex driven. There is a love story, but it doesn't arrive to that emotion as easily as it does in Romance. There is no insta-love. There was insta-lust and the lead characters definitely indulged in their desires. While I'm not a proponent of trigger warnings or warning labels, I do feel it's important to give the reader perspective of the sexual content. If there is M/F/M or M/M/F, then it helps the reader select their book. Unfortunately, this book didn't warn me about it. While I'm not a prude, I was surprised by the depth of *ahem* engagement between the threesome. Yet, the sexual descriptions were hot and served the purpose of titillating the reader. When I read that the story had no plot, I disagreed. There is a plot: a young woman, dealing with heartbreak, demands her independence and freedom to engage in sexual encounters with no strings attached. While there was a borrowing of plot from "An Affair To Remember" with Deborah Kerr and Cary Grant, this isn't a heartrending version--in my perception. I did feel for the heroine and her plight, but I felt she was too standoffish and it was off-putting. When it came to the main hero, I felt he was too giving. I wanted more details as to why he fell in love with her. Surely, it was more than her body and sexual liberalness that drew him to her. But I never got a sense of what it was and other than the hot sexual chemistry, I don't think the couple knew either. While I believe this was a well written sexual fantasy and exploration, I have some hardwired expectations for sexual encounters. I understand that as authors, we can and do write fantasy where we can create a world free of illness, sadness, violence, pain, etc., but I do believe there is a responsibility for us to remind our readers that there is some reality to our fantasy and we're required to keep ourselves and our sexual partners safe and sound from STDs or Unquestionable Consent when engaging in certain BDSM acts. Other than that, this is a page turner. I will read other books from this author. I think she writes an engrossing tale.

Follows the guy home. Oh wait he has a party to attend so she invites herself, and tadaaaa she has a Givenchy dress in her trunk (she had left her boyfriend earlier on so had her bags in the car and no place to stay). Sex at every other page, he straightaway falls for her and wants a long term relationship (a billionaire? With a taxi driver?) but she's hesitant because she has bad blood with her billionaire family and after being dumped by her billionaire fiance she doesn't want anything to do with the lifestyles of the rich and famous. He likes s&m but there's no mention of asking for consent. No mention of contraceptive either. Oh, and thru out the book, altho they're at it like rabbits, no mention of penises or vagina or anus etc. They bring in his best friend for menage a trois. The man is a toy! I could go on and on, my muka so lebam already from facepalms. The book starts out Pretty Woman, nearly gets into 50 Shades, and ends with An Affair To Remember (that story where the girl gets into an accident while on her way to the Empire State Building, that one). Huarghhhh! Read this at your own peril. Suspend disbelief. Suspend belief. Beggars belief. Get ready to face-palm a lot. A lot. Unless you're just invested in the steam-lah.

In the entirety of the book there isn't a single mention of condoms, birth control, or health status, even when a third person is brought into the relationship. When a book is set in the modern day real world completely ignoring STDs and pregnancy is at best unreasonable, and at worst irresponsible. I'm not asking for a lot - a mention of a clean test, a wrapper crinkle - but give me something. - Amazing sex equals instant love. Never mind that getting to know you stuff or talking about your childhood - love is transmitted from the penis to the vagina, apparently. - ...and not from penis to penis. A second man is brought in and is sexual with both Stevie and Reid, but his feelings are never considered. He's treated like a human sex toy - nice to have around, but not a member of the relationship. Not cool. - BDSM elements are brought in carelessly, without a warning or a safe word. And not just light bondage - a ball gag, people. No. No no. - While the sex is hot some of it defies physics. At one point I thought, "no way is all of that fitting in there that easily." - The Big Misunderstanding is a product of the heroine being idiotic. All in all - grah.

The story in this book flowed nicely and was very well written and the amount of hotness pouring of the pages was setting fire to the blankets around me, and the characters in this book were very well written and the chemistry first between Stevie and Reid and then between Stevie and Dylan and Reid and Dylan and wow when all three of them were together, the only words that come to my mind were just WOW, sometimes while I was reading I was so engrossed in the scene that I would forget that I was reading a book and not watching a movie. Stevie meets Reid on the night that she has caught her boyfriend cheating on her, she is a cab driver and Reid happens to climb in her cab as her best friend is telling her that she should sleep with the next fare that gets in.  That's exactly what she does with Reid in a dark alley but what she does not realize is the chain of events that will happen after that.  Reid is smitten with Stevie, yes he likes his women to be submissive but the sass that comes out of Stevie's mouth is what he likes the most.  I really loved when Stevie was in Reid's apartment the morning after the first night they spent together and Reid's best friend Dylan, whom he shares the apartment with (and by the end of the book will be sharing a lot more with) and the instant spark that Stevie feels towards him and how she asks Reid if she can have them both. This book was beyond anything that the blurb says about the book, A FARE TO REMEMBER is by far the hottest book that I have read to date this year and I look forward to reading more from Opal Carew.  I would give A FARE TO REMEMBER 4/5 stars.

My last and biggest issue is the fact that I feel like Dylan was used. We got no information about him and for all intents and purposes, they might have gotten a toy instead. They didn't give any thought to his feelings in the matter, which just made me sad for him. Also, is this a thing? I was not expecting two such hetero guys to go for what Stevie was thinking. Made it feel like homosexuality is a choice... Overall the sex scenes were hot, but I wanted a little more heart with my spice.

I did like the main girl Stevie, but something was off and the instant connection to Reid and vice versa bothered me. Of course there was still some hot scenes - Carew is seriously one of the best at writing them - but this story was just okay.
