Book Description

From New York Times bestselling author Opal Carew comes the first installment in a red hot erotic mini-series that will rock your world.

Rafe Ranier was my boss and secret crush. A rock musician by night and head of a billion dollar empire by day, Rafe could have any woman he wanted. But I was just the shy secretary he never noticed. For years I obsessed over him, until I finally realized I had to walk away. I needed to break from the secure life I'd always known to discover who I really was.

I never expected Rafe to follow me.

Now I'm on the road with his band, Savage Kiss, and all my secret fantasies are coming true. But I fear I've made a huge mistake, because if I get any more attached to a man I can never truly have, my heart will be broken beyond all repair.

Don't miss the other epic installments of HIS TO CLAIM: Savage Kiss (Part 2), Rock Hard (Part 3), Wild Ones (Part 4), Breaking Storm (Part 5), and Perfect Rhythm (Part 6).

Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Note that this is the story of Storm and Melanie from my erotic serial His to Possess.

An intoxicating tale of a woman torn between a dominant billionaire and a tattooed, bad boy rock musician.

There were some things that didn't sit right with me. Melanie quit her job because of Rafe and Jessica. Yet Jessica is engaged to Dane. To me, this just didn't seem right. It made me more confused than anything. But, the rest of the story is hot! I loved the sweaty sexy interactions between Rafe and Melanie. It was really hot! I loved hearing about Melanie finding herself and growing. This is a great rockstar romance! I'm excited to see what the next installment is about!

My rating- out of 1-5:
Cover: 5 - it's hot, love the tats
Editing: 4- there's a few errors, not much
Plot: 4 - some inconsistancies
Ending: 5- I'd love to hear more about the other boys!
That makes this a 4 star read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Start to A Great Story! June 3, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Rafe “Storm” left to find himself after his father passed away. Now Melanie left her job at Ranier Industries after knowing that Rafe was never going to pay attention to her. Now it’s her turn to find herself.

Melanie was the secretary to the man that she loved but she needed to leave her job because Rafe was in love with her bestfriend, Jessica. From the moment that he laid eyes on Jessica he was head over heels over her and Melanie knew nothing would ever happen between them. Melanie loves art and oh boy can she draw and now with all her extra time and no time constraint she can find herself. She has always done what was expected of her and now it was time for her to live her life the way she wanted.

Rafe seeks out Melanie at her new job because he needs to find out why she left her job. He made her aware that no matter what she will always have a job at Ranier Industries. He never would have thought that he would be running into Melanie at a tattoo parlor. He needed to move on with his life and remove something that meant everything to him and someone else. Then Melanie surprised him with what she was going to have tattooed and where. The moment that he saw that white, creamy place his thoughts became wicked.

His to Claim: No Strings is a great start to Melanie’s and Rafe’s story and beautifully written. I really enjoyed seeing these characters again and seeing that Rafe is attracted to Melanie. It seems he could have always been but he could have suppressed his feelings. The chemistry between Rafe and Melanie is evident. Ms. Carew has a way with words and with that a way for me to get lost for a little while in a different world.

I happily recommend this story. It’s a great start to a beautiful love story.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Beginnings June 3, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Apparently you need to read His to Posses in order to get Storm&Jessica's story. These are my 1st books from this author.

Melanie was/is Jessica's BFF. At one point they worked together and since Storm, the ex-boss, aka Rafe Ranier, chose Jessica over her, Melanie's jealousy gets the best of her and she quits working with him at Ranier Industries. Says she needed a new change in life.

"I'm not like you. I don't know what I have a passion for -yet- but I do know that I want to be free of rules, and as you said, the nine-to-five existence."

She never told Jessica and of course not Rafe of the real truth of why she quit. I guess whatever Jessica and Rafe also had didn't last long because she is now engaged to his brother Dane. I think I may need to read some of her previous books. So Melanie, why don't you jump his ass like you want to? Not into your friend's sloppy seconds? I get it. He didn't chose you, but hey girl, she didn't chose him either.

These 2 have some "finding" to do. They need to find out if they should trust their hearts or what's between their legs because it seems they want each other bad. Rafe used to be in a band, Savage Kiss. How hot is that? Ex-Rock Star goes suit&ties. Double Hawtness. He left his dream behind to follow on his fathers footsteps. He doesn't regret leaving the band. Knew he'd always want to for live what his father created. So why is he after Melanie now? She's on to you buddy. Driving all across town to buy coffee where Melanie is now a Barista. Smooth move Rafe. Very smooth!

Although they haven't even touched each other, yet, it's apparent how bad their connection is. As if they are physically drawn to one another. Jessica gave Melanie a gift card to a tattoo shop, Devil's Ink.

***This book was provided by Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.***

Quick review for a quick read…this is my first read by Opal Carew, and I really enjoyed it.

There was a lot packed into this first installment!

I really liked Rafe and Melanie. I’m a huge fan of characters who have a history, even if it’s not necessarily a romantic one. Melanie was running from an unrequited attraction to her boss–all the way from his the empire he was part of to a coffee house in an effort to ‘find herself–’ or so she says. Rafe was so serious about his job that it wasn’t until she left and he pursued her to find out why that he realized his attraction to Melanie. They were both down to earth, and I liked the honest, friendly nature or their relationship.

Now that Rafe has finally woken up and realized how special Melanie is, I am excited to see what happens from here!

More About the Author

Hi. I'm Opal Carew, a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author. I write erotic romance for St. Martin's Press and Samhain Publishing, and I self-publish stories. I also write romance as Amber Carew.

So why do I like writing erotic romance? I like being able to push beyond traditional boundaries. I like dealing with a female character who is growing and evolving - questioning her sexual boundaries and pushing past them. My stories usually include menage a trois. It is great fun to write a heroine choosing between two equally appealing heroes... or more.

These aren't women who just jump into bed with anyone. They find themselves in an unusual situation - something exciting and erotic - but a situation where they have to push themselves beyond their comfort level. As a result, they grow as a person. So often fear holds us back - of what others will think of us, of what we will think about ourselves - and we don't follow our hearts. These women push past that fear.
