KIRKUS REVIEW

A New York cabbie has an uncharacteristic sexual encounter with a wealthy client, leading her on an unexpected erotic journey that might end in an out-of-the-box happily-ever-after.

Stefani "Stevie" Trivoli is used to men trying to pick her up, but she’s never been tempted to actually let them until the day billionaire Reid Jacobs winds up in her cab. Within hours, they’ve had sizzling sex up against a wall in a dark alley, he’s invited her to accompany him to an elegant business event, and he’s taken her back to his apartment. It’s clear Stevie is not a typical cabbie, but she’s reluctant to talk about her past and defiant when Reid tries to lure her into a better job. Reid and Stevie both claim to want a no-strings-attached affair but are bemused by their explosive chemistry and a strange, inexplicable connection they share. When Reid’s best friend and business partner, Dylan, shows up, he and Stevie discover their own blazing attraction, and the three of them wind up in bed together. Rather than shaking Stevie and Reid's emotional connection, their experimentation strengthens it, and the couple becomes a happy threesome. When they all go out of town together and confront some emotional baggage from Stevie’s past, the men's support helps her heal, and she decides that perhaps Reid is the partner she’s been waiting for and love may be within her reach, with Dylan as a sexual sidekick. However, just as she’s ready to confess her true feelings, life gets in the way, and she’s not sure how to trust what’s real. Erotic romance author Carew offers up a sizzling fantasy that includes light bondage, ménage, and lots of graphic sex as well as a plot nod to vintage romance film An Affair to Remember. Carew writes a steamy sex scene and sets up a billionaire fantasy that will likely satisfy existing fans, but simplistic storytelling, unexplored plot threads, and the need for a high-level suspension of belief may leave some readers unsatisfied.

Not stellar, but it gets the job done.
