Melissa Woods and Shane Mason were best friends, and she considered herself a little in love with him, but when he asked her to go to a resort called Sweet Surrender that caters to swingers, she was dumbfounded. Melissa had planned on turning him down until she found out her sister Elaine was planning to go there with her husband. Now it was her mission to go there and do reconnaissance for Elaine hoping to dissuade her from going. Melissa and Shane were planning to pose as husband and wife so that he could make a decision whether or not to buy the place.

Ty Adams and Suzanne Fox were also close friends posing at the resort as a married couple. She owns the resort, and Ty as a private investigator, suggested the deception so they could check out the potential buyer. The only problem was they didn't know who it was, so they planned to get to know the new visitors hoping to identify the buyer. When Ty saw Melissa, he immediately wanted her, and thought she was either the buyer or a representative for the buyer. She wasn't his normal type, but something in her pulled at him, and he was going to have fun finding out her secrets as he gets close to her body.

Melissa didn't think she would enjoy the resort, but with Ty's help, she found a closet exhibitionist within herself that loved getting out. She also found herself participating and enjoying things she never dreamed possible before meeting Ty. When everyone discovers that looks can be deceiving, and many misunderstandings take place, it takes digging deep to resolve the feelings involved.

I enjoyed the sensual sexy play of this book, but found it lacking in the end. I would have liked some resolution, and genuine deep emotions developed between Ty and Melissa, but the book ended pretty abruptly leaving me with a feeling they wouldn't make it as a couple.

Melissa Woods' friend, Shane Mason, is considering buying a swinger's
resort in The British West Indies called The Sweet Surrender. He wants
to check it out, so he asks Melissa to go with him and pose as his
wife. She agrees, after hearing that her sister and her husband are
planning to go to the same resort in the future. Melissa wants to
gather information on the resort and persuade her sister not to go.

Private investigator Ty Adams' friend Suzanne owns The Sweet
Surrender. The club is losing money, and she knows she has to sell,
although she hates it. She asks Ty to go with her to the resort
because she thinks the prospective buyer is sending in a spy to see
how things work, and she wants Ty to find out who the spy is.

Ty immediately suspects Melissa, because she seems to be uncomfortable
at the orientation. He's very attracted to her, so spending time with
her won't be a problem. At first, Melissa is appalled by the club, and
its activities but as she begins to sample the offerings, she finds
that rather enjoys the swinger's lifestyle, and that she's very, very
attracted to Ty.

The tag on Swing says to "Leave your inhibitions at the door." In its
place you'd better bring a bucket full of ice. On second thought, make
that several buckets. Swing is hot, there's no doubt about it. Ms.
Carew has crafted a novel that captures the spirit of a swinger's club
very well. The sex is hot, and the games the couples play are fun and
varied.

I enjoyed the book, but would have liked to see a little more alone
time between Melissa and Shane, to cement their relationship. I'd
hoped to get that at the end and was disappointed that I did not.
Despite that, Swing is a sexy and entertaining romp. Readers who enjoy
stories about uninhibited sex with various and multiple partners will
love Swing.

WORD OF CAUTION: Very hot, very explicit sex scenes.

Melissa has had the hots for Shane for a while now. And she believes that Shane simply looks at her as a friend and nothing more. And being a friend, he needs her help.

Shane is looking into buying an exclusive resort, Sweet Surrender. The resort is an ordinary resort; the resort is for swingers. While single women can get in without question, single men can't, which means Shane can't go and check it out without a companion. And Melissa is the only one he'd trust to bring with him.

Melissa wants to balk and choke, but then the wheels in her head start turning. This is the resort that her sister mentioned. Seems she and her husband had been having difficulty lately, and her husband suggested they find a sitter for the kids and go. Melissa doesn't like the idea one bit. Her sister isn't a 'swinger' and believes they'll be making a huge mistake. And the only way she can report anything about it to her sister, is by going with Shane.

Shane has no problem getting into the 'swing' of things. But Melissa is having a hard time. For everyone seems very open-minded here, uninhibited, and that's making Melissa very uncomfortable. She doesn't understand how two people who are supposed to be married and love each other can simply turn around and sleep with someone else. To her, that's not the idea of commitment. And her feelings only become more confused when she watches Shane participating in an orgy. Her `hots' for Shane has risen to new heights, and she finally manages to tell him.

Shane is urging Melissa to open up, let her inhibitions go. Try something new, live on the wild side. At least no one knows her here, and she can `play' to her heart's content.

And Ty wants to be the one to help her. Suzanne, the current owner of Sweet Surrender and his best friend, has asked for his help as a private investigator. She's convinced that someone is going to check out the resort of a potential buyer, and Suzanne wants to make sure that person has a good time. Friends with benefits, he'd do anything to help his best friend. And he's almost convinced that person is Melissa.

Ty is falling for Melissa, Suzanne is falling for Shane, Melissa is stuck between Shane and Ty, and Shane thinks he might be falling for Suzanne. Until something happens at the resort that will knock the secrets up in the air, the potential for heartbreak.

Oh, did I like this book! Really, really, really liked this book. It was recommended to me by a group of women I trust (to my fellow "P"s, you know who you are, and I'm sending a resounding THANK YOU! your way), and they didn't steer me in the wrong at all. Very, very hot scenes that actually made me damp in several places, gave me some wicked ideas to try (wink, wink,) and with the characters emotions in the mix, this author can really entertain a reader. Her characters are real and have feelings, every day emotions that we all feel, which made me love them all the more. Through in a bit of a mystery, and I had a very hard time putting this book down. Can't wait to read this one to hubby... See if he comes up with some ideas.. (wink, wink!)

WORD OF CAUTION: Very hot, very explicit sex scenes.

I'm a big fan of threesome erotica, but this book takes it a step further with all out group action. Needless to say, I loved it! You might need to change your undies after reading it because it's a real panty drencher. But aside from all the crazy orgies, I also enjoyed the romance and the main character Melissa. She makes a huge transformation, from shy and mousy to sexually empowered. It made the book really rewarding for me.

I really enjoyed reading Opal's "Twin Fantasies" so I eagerly anticipated "Swing." While I'm technically glad I read the book, it lacked an emotional punch that I thought was vital given the sexually-charged atmosphere.

Shane is considering buying a resort for swingers, and he asks his best friend Melissa to join him so they can check it out as it's couples only. Suzanne, the owner, has heard that a possible buyer will be sending someone there shortly to report on the place, and she calls in Ty, her best friend, sometime lover and private investigator, to find out who it will be so she can be help the sale along.

Suzanne and Ty pretend that they're guests as well, and Ty spots Melissa the second she arrives. She's nervous, an obvious swinging virgin, and he feels protective. Is it her? He seems to think so after some initial reports, and he sticks to her side whenever possible. He's also attracted to her so why not.

He helps her fake her participation in one room, and when she wonders where Shane is, Ty leads her to a viewing room where she watches him take on two women. She's always cared about him and wondered what it would be like to be more than friends, and Ty is there watching her reaction to seeing her "husband" with other women. It's made clear a little later on that Shane has always wondered about her as well, but he didn't seem at all surprised that she was there witnessing his first sexual exploits.

She's--of course--reserved, and a few times Ty thinks to himself that if she's not open to this lifestyle, well, she's pretty much a prude. Ty, even though he's there to work, is participating in things left, right and center, and with up to three women at a time. Melissa eventually gets pulled into things, and after she's involved with him, she's part of a three-couples encounter.

As you can expect, Ty and Melissa fall for one another, but they think the other party is married, and things will only last as long as they're on the island. The truth, as always, does come out...and therein lies the "romance" portion of the book.

Safe sex is addressed by Shane mentioning that they'd have to hand in health/bloodwork reports, but the whole thing is a bit irresponsible given the types of activities that take place at the resort. Condoms really should have been mentioned and mentioned often.

My big issue with the book is that while it's HOT, and you're immersed in all sorts of sexual behavior, the emotional level of the developing relationships is overshadowed by the sexual adventures they're all pursuing for ***** and giggles. While the characters can indeed "make love," it's more about stretching the envelope. In this case, nuking it out of existence.

The final encounter of the book makes me wonder if either of these couples can find relationship happiness without bringing other parties into the mix. If they have to be this far out on the sexual edge this early, how good could they really be together?

This is the type of scene that many women fantasize about but never partake of the activities. I loved the plot with all of the twists. The sex scenes covered many fantasies, so there is soemthing for everyone. The book has a lot of sex scenes and gives insight into what a resort of this type might offer. Loved it!

What would you do for a friend? Would you go to a sex resort and do anything that was asked from you. An easy question to say yes or no to, but for Melissa it is one that will determine her future with Shane. He is the guy she has fantasized about for years and also her best friend. The thing is Shane doesn't see her as a sexy woman. He sees her just as a friend. Talk about a low blow to her self-esteem. She never expected him to ask her to accompany him to The Sweet Surrender, a swinger's resort. Melissa is no innocent and has read about these people that swap wives or girlfriends for sex but never imagined Shane was into it. Would this be the place that will finally make Melissa wanton, sexy and desirable to Shane? Or will it be her downfall.

Ty is an ex security guy who will do anything for his friend Suzanne. Upon hearing that a potential buyer is coming he knows that he must protect Suzanne. Wondering if it is Melissa that could be the potential he is not sure whom to protect now. He knows Suzanne is a great seductress but seeing Melissa makes him wonder if maybe it's time to join in the activities at the resort. One thing for sure is that Melissa is no innocent and he is definitely willing to show all the sexual sides of the resort. The thing is can he do it without losing his heart or his friendship with Suzanne.

Man oh man this one was one roller coaster of sex, passion and oh so vivid you can imagine yourself at the resort. It was interesting as a reader to read that this swinging business does exist and not all of it is seedy but somewhat loving. Melissa is a woman who is timid and it takes one good-looking man like Ty to bring that inner sensuality and passion in her out to play. Great book and can't wait for more by Opal Carew. Ms. Carew has wonderful imagination and great talent.

Why am I giving this 2 stars, I don't know. I guess I am being nice. I love her work, don't get me wrong. She is one of the best Erotica writers out there!!! I just did not care for this one! I thought there was to many extra people in this one. I have read several of her books, and this one just didn't get me wanting to keep reading. I was not happy with the ending of it. I was not to happy with all the orgy stuff. I think I just need to stick to her 4 or less people books. I preferred "Forbidden Heat" and "Secret Ties" so much better. )I give those two books 5 stars each!!!) I would suggest those to anyone who wants to read one of Opal Carew's books.
