Sonny has a debilitating fear of men. Tal is a scary-looking tattooed bad-ass. Can Tal get Sonny past her fear and help her become whole?
Sonny longs to feel the intimate touch of a man. But she is haunted by a past trauma that leaves her terrified of being with a man. Even when she dreams of being in a man’s arms, the steamy sexual situation turns into a nightmare.
Sonny has found one way to cope. A stranger’s voice has been her salvation.
Tal wants a woman to love him. To have a real, long-lasting relationship. But most women are intimidated by his bad-ass appearance, with his tattoos, piercings, and broad, muscular frame.
Tal looks the way he does because of a past fraught with pain. The tattoos aren’t going anywhere, so he needs to find a woman who will accept him for who he is… and was.
When Tal sees Sonny, he senses in her a kindred spirit. The haunting pain in her eyes draws him, but he flinches every time fear flickers across her face when she sees him.
Can Tal find a way to break through Sonny’s barriers and start something that might heal them both?

Alright now, where do I even begin?
It'll be very hard to do a review of this book considering the fact that it's a short piece and the subject matter. When I got the email that Opal Carew gave me an early copy (yesterday I opened my email account) I started to read it instantly!
The story follows Sonny who for some reason is so sensitive when it comes to men. She enjoys a blind date but doesn't accept him. Then we come to a man named Tal who moves in the same building where Sonny lives because he has an old friend there. Tal is scary looking to some. He has a sexy body but has piercings and tattoos everywhere. They bump into each other and that when the story starts to develop.
The first in a series (which is telling especially because of how this one is developed and ends), I enjoyed it a lot. I began to read it while I was at a coffee shop with my friend who is also an erotic reader. I kept telling her how mad I was with the main character Sonny.She was so rude how she turned down a sweet guy on a blind date. But o quickly liked her when I kept reading.
Tal, on the other hand, is like the Beast from Beauty and the Beast. He wants a real relationship and is sad because women are afraid of him. When the two meet they have a vibe and they have desires for each other.Now like always Carew uses the third person and for this story, it was the right choice. I felt like it was an erotic retelling of Beauty and the Beast in a contemporary way.
There isn't much to say for this book but I can tell you that there was one long, long masturbation scene. I had to go to the bathroom three times when I read that scene. I imagined the words from the narrator of PLAYED BY THE MASTER (check it out) and the actions that Sonny did me shiver. To all the ladies out there, I highly recommend this book just for that scene.Well written, and it'll remind you that you don't need a man to get your juices on.
Subscribe to Opal's newsletter and you'll get a link of it or if you buy this book in the end you can hear the actual recording.Very sexy, Opal Carew gives us a sense of power and pure delight in that scene. It'll make you wanna stay single and I highly recommend doing what Sonny did (even though I'm not that type of person).
Would I recommend this book? Yes! Of course! Keep in mind though that it has a surprise that you won't expect, and trust me you won't expect it as it's a Carew book. After reading this short story, I got on reading Tempting the Boss which I'll be doing a review later on.
I'll also review the next book in the series (Yes I pre-ordered it) as well as the Red Hot Fantasies series!
