Review: Tart by Lauren Dane
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 as complicated emotions, and when Jules must suddenly leave town, she wonders if she’ll have a choice to make when she returns
I obtained the above information from Lauren's website... here!
I will start off by saying that 1.) I am huge fan of Ms. Dane's work and 2.) I love this series!!! It will not only want to make you eat cupcakes and things delicious (as this series is called) but it will make you want to have some hot, naughty sexing! Ms. Dane does an awesome job at bringing all the characters together without overcrowding the story or pushing the main characters out of their own story. Her stories always come right out the over smoking hot and just enough sweetness. The icing on the cake would be the hot men that she gives our women in the stories. They are heavenly!
Okay, I also need to say here - that this book does contain some m/m loving.... This book is devoted to Jules, that I can promise you... But some hot man loving happens in this book! If it is not for you, I understand... Just say hi! One day you may try it... Until then.... Happy reading! For those that enjoy some m/m loving.... Enjoy!
This story is for Jules... She gets her story told... She is a woman hell bent on loving a man that she fears she can never have. She knows that sometimes Cal likes to play for the same team, leaving her without the right equipment. Finally having enough of pinning over a man she cannot have.... She decides to go after the new dessert in town.... Gideon! All cowboy and all man. He is all sorts of wicked deliciousness... And Jules wants to find out just how delicious he is... But what happens when the unexpected happens...
Gideon's past marriage taught him a lot about life and love. Now he's determined to not let his past shape his future. He decides to move in with his grandfather and help oversee the farm/ranch. Knowing that being close to family is good for the soul.... But it also doesn't hurt when the sweetest woman he knows wants to do business with his farm... But he is looking at other things than her baked goods... But what happens when the man that captured her heart at an early age comes to stake his claim on Jules... Can his heart risk losing the one woman that completes his world... Or does he man up and come clean....
This is a great story about how much work a relationship can be... And if it is really worth it... Then you work at it. Jules is a woman that knows what she wants, does not allow anything to get in her way or anyone to run her over... But when it comes to those closest to her, family, it could be enough to bring down our favorite baker. Hell, her shoulders are only so wide to hold all what she carries... But when two men pledge to love her to no end.... Well... The burden of carrying such a wide load lessens.... Especially when Jules lets her family members know exactly where she stands...
The relationship between Gideon, Cal and Jules will definitely heat you up on these winter nights that are coming up.... The family ties in this book will show you that family does not mean being related by blood... But by love! All the characters in this book will make you feel welcome! So, light a cookie scented candle and grab this book and enjoy! Because there is more to come from this Delicious series!
