Invitation to Eden Review Tour Stop Two – Wild Ride by Opal Carew

Her friend told her dreams come true at Eden, but this is more like a nightmare.

Marissa is shaken when her bad-assed biker ex-boyfriend begins to stalk her. After receiving an invitation to an exclusive resort called Eden, she jumps at the chance to get away.

But even in paradise, she can't escape the man from her past. As he's closing in on her, a passing stranger on a motorcycle pulls up and orders her onto his bike. Frightened and willing to take any chance to flee her dangerous ex, she does as he says.

Her knight in supple leather manages to lose her ex and take her to a secret hideaway, but now she finds herself overwhelmed by his potent masculinity and submitting completely to his authoritative commands.

Killer didn't want to be her saviour. He had problems of his own. But once Marissa's under his protection, he will do whatever he can to keep her safe. Even force her to face her deepest fears.

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

I enjoyed reading this short novella about Marissa and ....Killer? Lol, never did find out his real name. Maybe you could have added it that before the marriage This series is written by different authors and are all about Eden... An invitation to the island of Eden can bring you together with the person of your dreams. I enjoyed the erotic writing of Opal Carew, and overall entertainment was four stars. I usually add shelves for this kind of book, and uniquely I didn't have a shelf for this one. I'm labeling this one orgy!

This was my first Invitation to Eden book. I always love a good biker book, love the twist with this one.

Marissa fears for her life, her ex, Rip, is involved in a biker gang. She knows that an ex of one of the other members was killed, she fears that is how her life will end. When she gets a message on her cell she knows Rip shouldn't have that number. She thinks she is being stalked by Rip, there is no way that it’s coincidence that she sees him standing outside her apartment building. The invitation to Eden comes at the perfect time, until she realizes it's a bikers weekend. When she accepts the help from Killer, a stranger and a biker, she doesn't know which is the worse of two evils, staying and confronting what may be the end of her life or flee. Was her choice the best one?

In the beginning I attached to Rip immediately. Loved his character. Killer grew on me eventually. This was a quick erotic read. The last chapters are sizzling hot! Well worth the read just for those scenes.

First off I have rated this book 3.5 stars :)

Marissa is running from her ex and runs straight into the arms of a mysterious biker named Killer.
Throughout this book I was worried for Marissa's sense of self preservation, I mean she is running from one biker and jumps on the back of another biker who she does not know bike and agrees to do anything he tells her :/ the woman has issues I think!
I thought the book was well written, however I would have liked a little more info/background on Killer (like his real name)
Unfortunately I have a big issue with a particular part of this book. The orgy scene (no I have no issue with the orgy) gangbang away my friends but let’s keep it safe. There was no use of condoms throughout the sex scenes. Normally this does not bother me, however for one all these people are basically strangers and for two it's just a little gross, I would hate to have been the last dude to have sex :/ This was my only issue with the book. As a quick read I enjoyed it. :)

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 ménage 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.
