Aimee and her two male friends give Sandra a safe place to play and to let go of her inhibitions. She does indeed fulfill all eight of the fantasies on her list and even has the opportunity to add some other erotic experiences along the way. Devlin waits in the wings, participates when he gets the chance (as an anonymous stranger) and worries about his chances of winning Sandra’s love.
Personally, I don’t find much about Carew’s crafted fantasies realistic. However, this is part of the charm of her books. I prefer not to worry about realistic scenarios or experiences in erotic romances, especially those dealing with fantasies. After all, fantasies are just that for me - fantasies. This allows me to just kick back, relax and read – and not worry about all those things that can seem so impossible in erotic romances (not to mention painful, annoying or just plain wrong). And Carew is a master at providing this type of story.
“Total Abandon” is a very steamy story filled with sexual exploits involving Sandra, Devlin, Aimee and Aimee's two male friends. All are aimed at Sandra's sexual maturation and did not come across as gratuitous (ok, maybe one or two might have :) ), as they lead to Sandra's discovery of her sexual self and her love for Devlin. Kudos to Opal Carew for another well-written erotic romance. I look forward to where she takes us next.
