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.

The story line captured you from the first words you hear until the last.
The pace of the story was excellent with just enough of the main character back ground to under stand why she wants the things she wants.
I loved the voice of the narrator.I felt more connected to the characters through her voice.
The second to last chapter when the main character chooses her self over begging for what she really wants.
This was one of the best books I've listen to in a long time. It is one of the reason Megan Hart is one of my favorite authors. Her books are always written in a way to make you really think how you would react if you ever found your self in the situations her characters find themselves in.
I frequently thought about not finishing this book. It actually was a great story in regards to the complexity of intimate relationships. Perhaps because of the nature of the characters, the explicit sexual scenes were appropriate but they were not my "cup of tea". I definitely believe that the X-Rated nature of the book should have been included in the summary. It would be offensive to some and I would hate to have given this book as a gift based on the summary without reading it first.
I love this author! I only discovered her about two months ago and this was my 7th book that I have listened to by her...she has great character development and new and different story lines in each book that unfolds beautiful love stories. I also love how her characters from each book show up again in the other books...all of her stories take place in PA and main characters from other books pop up as side characters in future books. For instance, in this one Johhny D. shows up from Collide and Sadie and Joe show up from Broken. It just seems to weave a storyline through all of the books.
I love Tesla in this book - very sure of herself...I also love Charlie. Very romantic, sexy and honest. And...another great narrator for Megan Hart - wonderful voices.
I recommend this book. Another review said this was a very similar storyline to Tempted...aside from there being 3 people involved in the love story...I don't think anything else was similar...so don't let that deter you from reading it.
Not sure, never read in print
Was a sexy story with a really good plot.
A sensual story that will keep you wondering what is going to happen next
Say something about yourself!
No, I have loved all of Megan Harts books I have in my library thus far. This one was a little odd to me. There is a woman that works at a coffee shop and a woman that basically lives in the coffee shop. She takes her home to make her apart of her marriage and then she almost disappears.
HATE spoilers! Enjoy HOT, sexy books w/a plot. No vampires, paranormal, teens 4 me. Books outside HOT genre = books given to me to review
...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.
I love reading for pleasure and obtaining new insights. Audible is perfect for me /visual issues. Thanks listeners for helpful reviews!
The kind of story that could be true. It follows the upbeat Tessla through real life situations. Talented narration is easy to listen to.
Tessla. Because she has a life filled with heart break but she powers through. She finally realizes who her family truly is by the power of love.
It's hard to choose a favorite scene.
When she tucked the child in bed upon her return after a lengthy absence
Bought this, thinking I was downloading my book club title (also called Space Between Us but by different author). I was in a hurry and neglected to double-check the author. When I heard the narrator say it was a "Harlequin," I remember thinking it was odd choice for my book club, -- soon realized that the author's attempt at character development and plot just serve to string together a series of explicit sex anecdotes.
Yes. Apparently "Morningstar" = porn.
I did give her 5 stars as the narration was good.
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!
