★★★★! His To Possess (part 1-6). Small-town girl moves to big city & finds herself in triangle with commanding CEO & bad-boy rocker!

“I’d like to show you that giving up control to someone else can be both stimulating…”
“…and pleasurable.”

Thanks to my fellow buddy-readers! I had a blast on our thread (LINK!). Thanks also to my SSS, Allison!

His To Possess (Part 1-6) is a story that should just be dived into. The less you know the better!

I love picking a book up with zero expectations, no reviews from friends to bounce opinions off of, and end up DEVOURING it. This book did just that! In a genre that's saturated with the billionaire alpha millionaire meets a down-on her-luck heroine, this storyline shakes it up a bit...or a lot.

I must confess that this book is not one of my favorites. It was good and all but the last 15% chewed me up and spit me out. It changed my whole perspective of the book. I have never read a book that affected me so negatively.

3 stars

His to Possess is broken down into 6 parts: The Seduction, The Morning After, A Perfect Storm, True Lies, Entangled, and Forever.

Overall verdict: Very fast-paced, easy to read, HOT steamy sex scenes, predictable plot twists but book was still enjoyable. A great escape from reality for a few hours. The last 15% killed it for me though.

The Seduction:


As the first installment meant to introduce the characters and plot, The Seduction was pretty spot on. I was intrigued, teased, and hooked. And

DNF [half way into part 4] so no rating at this time. I felt the story had so much potential to be great but it was very predictable, felt like it was going nowhere and lost me at just over half way mark. I want to say "it's not the book but me/crappy timing", however, in this case I am not even sure I am interested enough to finish this at a later date. Having said that, I will check out more work by this author in the future because I didn't mind the writing at all.

3 - Only For The First 4 Parts Stars!

I am going to break down my review for His To Possess into its respective parts, mainly because I really liked a lot of it, and then the author took me somewhere I wasn’t prepared for, and if I am honest I would never have requested the book if I knew it was in the story.

The Seduction – The first part of this pulled me in thoroughly, the mistaken meeting in the coffee shop between Jessica and Dane while she is in Philly at a job fair, and what followed after

★★★ 3.5 stars.

Loved it right until the last 15%. Those last two novella's made it go from a 4 star to a 3 star read for me. Overall, I quite enjoyed reading this collection of novella's in book-form though, the constant cliffhangers made me want to keep reading until I knew how Jessica's turbulent and passionate story ended.

Review to come.

This was a decent quick read yet weird at the same time. There is a (view spoiler) which was not really weird but the way it happened was a little odd. I do feel like some of the book was a little rushed and it was wrapped up a little too easily in the end. But I overall enjoyed this book and the sex scenes were pretty hot.

Jessica is out job searching when she runs into a man who looks a lot like her ex-boyfriend. After a slightly embarrassing encounter, they happen to stumble into each other's path yet again when the man, Dane, offers to drive Jessica to her destination in his limo. They find themselves attracted to each other and end up sharing Jessica's hotel room for the night.

I went into this book, without any special expectation and I was pleasantly surprised. His to Possess is a quick read with high steam factor.

Jessica has left her hometown to attend a job fair in Philadelphia. Here she spots tall and dark stranger that reminds her so much of her ex who broke her heart. She decides to throw all caution out of the window and invites the sexy stranger, Dane, back to her room for the night. Jessica believes this is it, but this one night stand definitely do not end

Personally not my cup of tea. I requested this title because the description sounded like something I would like, but by the time I got to the last couple sections I felt like I was reading something I didn't sign up for.

Some people like threesome and I'm okay with it but threesome is totally not for me...

I'm sorry but the whole love triangle and threesome thing just make Jessica sound like an indecisive b*tch that seems to think she's the only one around who has feelings. You know what, those guys you're messing up with have feelings too!

But oh wait... Looks like Dane and Rafe don't mind their feelings get all played by Jessica!

Please, keep calling that feeling of yours love

Started out with a bang..and loved it!!

Very hot and steamy!!

Jessica relocates to another city because her ex boyfriend ups and leaves her to play in a band. While in the city, she sees Dane and thinks it's Storm, her ex. There is an instant connection. Jessica breaks it off and heads to her job fair. Little does she know..she will see him again as her boss.

What Jessica doesn't realize as her no strings attached relationship with Dane continues, the is more of a connection to Storm that Dane has

This book was such a disappointment to me. I had such high hopes that this book was going to keep me entertained and interested to read the other installments. This book had me at the beginning. The story is of Jessica who had moved to another city to explore bigger options after being heartbroken over the separation of her and her ex-boyfriend Storm. After just a few months of living together Storm decides it is best to leave since he is a self-proclaimed drifter and it is time to leave and not ...more

This story starts out with Jessica visiting Philadelphia in hopes of finding a job at a career fair. She see's a man that looks just like her ex Storm, that she is still in love with. She follows the man into a coffee shop and walks up to greet him. She finds out it's not him and gets embarrassed and walks away. The handsome man is a successful business man named Dane.

Original Review @ Naomi’s Reading Palace

His to Possess was originally a serial and has now been combined into this one book. I haven’t read anything written by Opal Carew before, so I was excited to see what she would deliver with this book.

The story begins with Jessica pursuing a guy who resembles her ex, Dane, and immediately they have a connection. This was quite an amusing time for Jessica as she made a mistake and tries to cover it up. And then Dane offers her a lift to the convention… whic

This book was very one dimensional. We didn't really get to know much about Jessica outside of her sexual preferences. She became wishy washy about two men but we only knew her indecision concerned enjoying sleeping with both of them. She was not someone who I identified with or even liked quite frankly.

Except for the last part in the story, His to Possess was really interesting and entertaining to read. It was hot and steamy but then, everything started to crumble for me when the heroine started to be with both of the characters. Really, it was frustrating and annoying. I think even the author didn't know what character she prefered or something.

So, it's not like l hated everything because this book had the potential to be one of my favourites. It

I started this because of the D/s elements, and while that part was interesting, I actually connected more to Melanie than Jessica. I've gone through the whole 2 girls who are friends and like the same boy and boy picks other girl, and I was able to handle it like Melanie, and the whole unrequited love thing. So I'm actually more interested in her story than Jessica's.

It is also told in the third person, and I've found with stories like these I prefer first person.
