Secret Weapon by Opal Carew

Review by Tempest.

Blurb:

There’s only one thing hotter than a man in uniform…when he takes it off.



Threesomes and men of the law have always been two of Janine’s biggest turn-ons.  So when her boyfriend offers to invite one of his buddies from the police force into their bedroom, it’s an offer she can’t refuse.  But when the extra man shows up, the last thing she expects is for it to be Sloan Granger—a man from her past.



Janine is the one woman who Sloan’s never been able to forget, and now that their worlds have collided, he has a second chance to win her back.  Even though she refuses to let him back into her life, he’s determined to change her mind—no matter what the cost.  His love for her has always been his greatest weakness, but this time, it’s also his most powerful weapon….

I wasn't as impressed with this one as I was with another of Opal Carew's books. There wasn't very much story line, and what little there was sort of fell by the way side. I wanted to know more about Ben, Sloan, and Janine and the way their lives used to be, but we weren't given very much. The sex scenes were good, but sometimes even those felt over the top and forced. I couldn't really connect with Janine, and she never really took the time to think anything through. Being impulsive is one thing, but she wrote Sloan off right away and didn't bother giving her emotional self a chance. I couldn't really figure out why all of these guys were falling for her. The physical I get, but emotionally...I'm not sure why they were in love with her because she never really showed much personality. Sloan also seemed like a major push over half the time, and if it was for a good reason then I wouldn't have a problem with it, except, again, he kept doing all of these things for Janine and I couldn't understand why or what was so great about her. All in all, I wasn't overly impressed with this one, but if all you want is a toooon of sex scenes, then this is for you.
