Juliet Lamprey is having the time of her life running her successful bakery, Tart, when Gideon Carter comes back into her life. Returning home to help his grandfather run the family on the farm, Gideon is back for good. When they meet again, the spark between them is immediate, and it isn't long before the former childhood friends play catch up in bed.That's not good news for local lawyer Cal Whaley. Though the sexually open but strictly monogamous Cal has loved Jules for a long time, he's hardly ever taken it further than friendship. When he sees her start to fall for Gideon, he knows he has to make his move or risk losing her forever.
Who would have anticipated that all three of them would connect on such an intimate level? The trio's scalding liaisons take them places they've never dreamed. But such an intensely passionate and unusual relationship comes with equally complicated emotions, and when Jules must suddenly leave town, she wonders if she'll have a choice to make when she returns....

I have other Lauren Dane books on my Kindle. If Anadelle Waters is the narrator, I'll give the book a pass. I enjoy Lauren Dane. Anadelle Waters does ok with voices and narrating regular life, but she is totally passionless when it comes to the sexual parts. And in a book in the erotica section, that just doesn't cut it.
Seeing how the characters learned to communicate better with each other as their relationship deepened.
She was so passionless during the sex scenes that I quit listening to the book after only a couple of sex scenes and finished it on my kindle.
I think since there are other books in the Brown family line and in the Delicious line we'll see the characters again. It will be nice to see how their relationship develops.
Please don't let Annadelle Waters narrate any other erotica!
Unfortunately I purchased the series on sale so I don't have a choice. Anadelle Waters does a good job in the narration
Lauren Dane spent 95% of the book on the sex. There were so many opportunities for Ms Dane to make a story line out of the strife with the heroines family and she instead chose to focus on the three way relationship which she had already discussed in details with her first book.
It was nice, easy to follow and wasn't grating on the nerves.
None they are all needed but there could have been a lot more done with the fathers new family, the brother and even the mother. Just more madness brought into the story would have been refreshing.
Since I have the whole series I'll wait a few months to listen to the other books. Sad, so sad for a writer with skill but instead chooses to be boring.
Good Books Don't Promote Violence
While I enjoyed most of Tart, I was confused in the beginning because I hadn't read the first book in this series. (Audible doesn't list Sway as book 1 but I understand it should be). Also some characters are a cross-over from the last book of the Brown Family series.
