Harmony is a moral, upstanding
citizen. She is professional with a capital “P” and it
shows. Well, it shows until her annual get-together with
her college friends. Once a year, tight laced and seemingly
innocent Harmony and her college friends get together for a
no holds barred sexual odyssey. Nothing is taboo or
forbidden. Boundaries are pushed and pleasure is obtained.
There is just one tiny problem.
Harmony is seriously involved with Aiden. She might even
LOVE him. He does not know about her annual trips and
Harmony is beside herself with trepidation having to tell
him where she is going. When he suggests accompanying her,
Harmony agrees but remains afraid of Aiden’s reaction to the
hedonistic and mind blowing sexual journey they are about to
Sexual journey is a mild euphemism for
the extremely erotic love scenes plotted in Six
by Opal Carew. The plot is a good one; sexually adventurous
characters often are a favorite of mine. Sexually explicit
love scenes combined with heady characters make up Six.
And that is where my enjoyment of this book ends. I
couldn’t get past the often-times gratuitous sexual
intercourse they had with others. I found nothing
emotionally gripping about these characters; they could have
been porn stars on a gonzo film for as much emotion as they
displayed. It wasn’t until the final love scene between
Aiden and Harmony that I even began to believe in the love
they had for each other. I know I certainly didn’t connect
with them at all.
On paper, the blurb for Six
looks intriguing and I honestly thought I would enjoy this
book. The lack of emotions and sexual promiscuousness of
the combined characters made for an almost porn-like
atmosphere. Six was definitely not the book
for me – lovers of erotica will more than likely feel
differently, and I really hope they do. Opal Carew is too
talented of an author for me to give up on.
