    Steamy MFM Romance

    Abi is conflicted…there are two men she has “loved” and one she has married then separated from. She believes she is ready to move on to the one she knows she has loved all along but is she really ready to give up the man she has been separated from for two years? This is a story of three people finding a way to be together that works for all of them. That said, I did not relate to any of them and really can’t see why Liam or Del found Abi so special. The believability factor was not high and characters were not that well developed. Mostly it was a vehicle for a steamy ménage story. Thank you to NetGalley and St. Martin’s Griffin for the ARC – This is my honest review. 2-3 Stars

    Hesitation..

    Love the cover on this book and it really ties in with the story. Triangle of characters with only the third line needing to be drawn. Abi is friends with Del who is friends with Abi's brother. Abi is married to Liam who has refused to sign divorce papers for two years. Liam is also best friends with Del and is close to her family. SCREAMING SOAP OPERA IN PRINT! Trust issues shadow the pages of this book and stall these characters from a HEA. Plot is a bit weak but the pages kept turning for me because I found the characters interesting although Abi could not get over herself for the most part. "A copy of this book was provided by St. Martin's Press via Netgalley with no requirements for a review. Comments here are my honest opinion."

    Not My Cup of Tea

    If you love taboo romance novels then X Marks the Spot by Opal Carew is your book. I struggled with this book as it went too far with the taboo. The sexy scenes were hot but not enough to save the book. Abi has a close network of friends who are enmeshed with her family. In fact, she married one, Liam but should have held out for Del. A wedding brings these three together again. Abi sleeps with her husband and Del says he's willing to give their romance a chance. Abi just can't keep her legs closed and she gets pregnant by her husband, Liam who has always wanted a baby with her. However, Abi would just rather be with Del instead of here husband. It was totally a messed up story. I struggled with this book, giving it only a 2-star rating, and honestly that’s being generous. The only reason I gave it that is because I enjoyed the intimate scenes and felt they had some depth to them. I enjoyed the character Del, but in addition to that it was thumbs down for me. This story had no exciting plot to it, although there was some potential, it just fell flat. I do not recommend this book, unless you want to read some steamy sex scenes then you may enjoy it quite a bit. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.

    An okay love triangle read

    This was an okay read, I am okay with love triangles, not my favourite, but they don't make me go crazy. Honestly, I skimmed most of the book, not because of the story, but because I really didn't like 2 of the 3 main characters Liam - Liam is the husband who won't give up. The title of the book comes from him, he just needs to sign the divorce papers and Abi will be free of him. He still loves her though, and he knows she still loves him. He is sweet, patient, and kind; Super sexy and dominant; Likable and easy to get along with, practical and hopeful. He had to grieve,and now that he is through that cycle, he wants his wife back Del - Best friend of Abi's brother, promised to look after her at college, so despite attraction to Abi, stayed away. Introduces her to his friend Liam, they hit it off crazy, and are soon married. He stays friends with them both, and is there for Abi when Liam drowns in his grief. Not that Abi believes her marriage is over and makes a play for him, he goes for it. He knows Abi still has feelings for Liam, but he wants her Abi - can we just start with the spelling of her name, with all the spellinh choices, this annoyed me. I kept thinking A-buy. Then there is her knowledge she loves her husband, but she doesn't think he loves her, no matter what he does. She is kinda whiny, very selfish, and completely unaware of how awful she treats people around her. Plus, her family his utterly annoying with trying to figure out what is best for her, giving her advice, and bugging her. Also, she was supposed to have a medical condition, but at the end of the book, it magically wasn't an issue The story wasn't awful, and Liam was wonderful, and he did manage to pull it all together at the end. Abi became a bit more likable once he pulled it together, and Del was the faithful puppy lopping alongside. But for most of the book, and most if it is Abi, the characters weren't great, making the story passably okay

    Hot Read (Adult content)

    X Marks The Spot by Opal Carew is a great read, this is a menage book though, so it may not be for everyone. Ms. Carew has delivered a well-written book. Kudos to Ms. Carew for writing this in 3rd person because all these 1st person, alternating point of view books are getting old. Abi is trying to get her husband Liam to sign divorce papers. She wants to start a romantic relationship with their friend Del. Liam is still in love with Abi and has been refusing to sign the papers. Their story is loaded with drama, humor, blazing hot sex and a bit of angst. Thankfully the angst isn't overpowering. I enjoyed reading X Marks The Spot and look forward to reading more from Opal Carew in the future. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger. I voluntarily read an Advance Reader Copy of this book that I received from NetGalley.
