Tesla Martin is drifting pleasantly through life, slinging lattes at Morningstar Mocha, enjoying the ebb and flow of caffeine-starved customers, devoted to her cadre of regulars. But none of the bottomless-cup crowd compares with Meredith, a charismatic force of nature who can coax intimate tales from even the shyest of Morningstar’s clientele.
Caught in Meredith’s sensual, irresistible orbit, inexpressibly flattered by the siren’s attention, Tesla shares long-buried chapters of her life, holding nothing back. Nothing Meredith proposes seems impossible - not even Tesla sleeping with Meredith’s husband, Charlie, while she looks on. After all, it’s all in fun, isn’t it?
In a heartbeat, vulnerable Tesla is swept into a spectacular love triangle. Together, gentle, grounded Charlie and sparkling, maddening Meredith are everything Tesla has ever needed, wanted or dreamed of, even if no one else on earth understands. They’re three against the world.
But soon one of the vertices begins pulling away until only two points remain - and the space between them gapes with confusion, with grief and with possibility.

I am a big Megan Hart fan, and this series is by far, one of my favorites of all time. I love how every book revisits with at least one character from a previous book, and ties all of the stories together. This one is no different. We get to see Johnny D and Em again (and find out that they have had their baby), as well as Joe and Sadie (and imho, an unwelcome reentry of one of Joe's former story subjects), all 4 of which have been some of my favorite characters from the past.
Aside from the blasts from the past, we become more familiar with the Morningstar Mocha coffee shop itself, from behind the scenes. The way that Tesla and Meredith get together is a big tease, i think. But when everything comes out, its not what I was expecting to happen. However, the way that the story unfolds is pretty predictable.
At first, I was pretty fond of Meredith, and somewhat distrustful towards Charlie, but that definitely changed about midway through the story. However, it was inevitable, seeing as how situations like this always flip around. Sometimes people want something so bad, that their selfishness blows up in their own face, as it did with Meredith.
I wish there was more details on the history between Tesla and Vic, because it just feels like there is more to it all, other than what they say. His reasoning between why he didn't want his wife to know about his previous career, and why he seemed so ashamed of it, even though he wanted to get back into it. I would also like to know more about Tesla's brother, Captain. He needs his own book, I think.
Love scenes are pretty hot. as usual, without going overboard. I do wish that more had happened at the sex club though. There was so much potential for things that could have happened, but didn't. I was kind of bored through that part, and had to rewind a couple if times to get through it.
All in all, another great story. Two thumbs up, five stars and all that jazz. Keep it rocking Megan!
MG hardly ever disappoints and here is no exception. I love the way she turns dysfunctional into functional. If you have never read her books you must give them a try.
narrater is also very good!!
No spoilers! Love HOT, sexy books w/a plot. No vampires, paranormal, teens 4 me. I also review in exchange for books-lots of fun surprises!
...because it felt like it was giving the story away. After listening to the book, I'm glad I did skip it because I'd have listened differently (like seeing a movie before reading the book).
It was a great Megan Hart story...characters had depth and feeling along with great sex descriptions. (Graphic-not for your 'everyday' romance reader).
Cannot give a best without giving anything away so I'll go with the opposite-I did not like how Tesla was treated yet she put herself in the positions (figuratively).
Great job-each character had their own voice, including the children which can be hard to do.
Yes and I almost did...just stopped for a few hours of sleep! The closer to the end the more suspenseful and interesting it got!
Graphic portrayal of M/F sex as well as F/F (not a fan) and menage tois F/F/M.
Yes. The narrator was good, the story was good, and the sex scenes weren't too exaggerated.
Meredith's character was really good.
Neither but I felt bad at the end, but not enough to cry.
The story was very close to the other Sylvia Day book where the husband invites his childhood friend into the marriage. Very close.
Usually I have enjoyed Megan Hart books but this one just didn't keep me very interested. Charlie wasn't much of a manly man -- he just went along to keep the peace for much of the book. I'm glad we lost Meredith by the end. She was a little to on again/off again for me.
Usually I am very emotional attached to her characters but I didn't get that with this book. But I'll keep listening to Megan's work.
That is was extreme porn page after page, poor character development, just raw sex, nothing really sensual or beautiful. what a waste. I actually chose it by accident as my book group was reading a book by the same title about an Indian woman in a lower caste whose husband was abuse, a book I am glad I missed.
something about the CIA or Code Talker
irritation and disgust.
