Before devoting herself to her passion as a writer, Opal spent 15 years as a software analyst, and she has a degree in Mathematics from the University of Waterloo. She lives with her husband and two sons in Ontario, Canada.

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.

Format: Paperback
Pleasure Bound is an intensely sensual journey for three people who are exploring their personal boundaries to arrive at a pleasure that will bind them together forever. This book was so erotic and emotional that it was impossible for me to put down. I feel like I've been on a roller-coaster with twists and turns, highs and lows, and when I got to the end, I wanted to immediately get back in line to get on again!

This book was sexy with a capital SEX. Sex in every place imaginable, in every way imaginable, and what was amazing about it was the fact that it was interwoven with emotion and love amongst the characters as well as real vulnerability. The three of them each open up some part of themselves that leaves them exposed, and it's unsettling for them. But as much as it gives them unease, it also gives them intense pleasure. There is a lot of BDSM aspects in the book, but it's mild overall without any intense scenes. But the steam that went along with it made me reach for water more than once.

If I had to choose, I would say that I loved Zeke's character the best. He has this tough exterior but underneath it all, he wants what's best for those that he loves. There are things revealed about him that make the kind of sacrifice that he's willing to make for them even more heartfelt.

The story doesn't go much beyond the relationship between the three main characters, but the author does a wonderful job illustrating some of the problems that can occur when dealing with any new relationship, even a threesome. The story was so engrossing that I didn't realize that there really weren't any other characters in the book besides the three main ones until I reached the end of the book.

The development of the relationship between Ty and Zeke was amazing.

I give this two stars for some technically hot sex scenes. Unfortunately, the characters rarely come up for air long enough for any real character development. As a result, I just didn't care about them enough to enjoy the story. We get almost no picture of who Marie is as a person; I was more interested in the history between Zeke and Ty, so much so that Marie felt like a third wheel by the end of the book. The book could also have benefited from some tighter editing. Ms. Carew repeatedly describes things as "sensational" and continually refers to the men's "liquid heat." I mean, this is m/m/f erotica -- we're past the need for euphemisms, no? I enjoyed another book by this author (Bliss) but this one fell short for me.

Marie meets Zeke and next thing you know she is calling him "Master". Opal Carew certainly jumps into this story with both feet and to me that made the story feel rushed. There wasn't much character development; her attempts never fully allow the reader to really get to know Zeke, Marie and Ty. I found her descriptions of the - hmm... what to say without being deleted by Amazon... "man parts" to be repetitive. Lots of menage, m/f, and a little m/m so reader beware if that's not your thing!

I've read all of her books and the last two just seem to be going in the same circle as the others! Kind of like she can't really come up with something new. Good story anyway, but I couldn't finish the book because I kept feeling like I had read it before!

2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Harriet Klausner #1 HALL OF FAME on December 12, 2010
Format: Paperback
From the first moment they first met, Zeke wants Marie; she desires him too. Her neighbor and Zeke's friend Ty feels the same way about Marie and though bewildered by her feelings she desires him also. Marie finds herself confused but elated with the two men in her life.

Zeke and Ty have been best friends sharing everything even women since high school. However, Marie has caused a schism between the buddies. However, their estrangement goes deeper as neither of the males wants to admit their desire for other. As Zeke and Ty begin to explore their desires, each wonders how Marie will react to a MM relationship in addition a ménage a trois.

The key to the erotic contemporary is that the ménage a trois participants seem genuine especially with their sexual and other relational needs. Readers will enjoy the heated tale as the trio searches their personal boundaries and how far they are willing to allow the other two to explore. Opal Carew provides plenty of pleasure to her fans with this strong torrid relationship drama as three bounded by desire proves more than just company.
