Overview

USA Today bestselling author Lauren Dane serves up a sweet, sensual, and hot-to-the-touch novel in which one woman’s most intimate desires are stirred by two very special ingredients…

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 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…

Lauren Dane is a great author and I've enjoyed this series; however, I was a bit disappointed. I thought that Jules came across as a too good to be true giver, almost like like a martyr, which is not a strong personality trait. Also unless you enjoy gay sex between men and think it is hot, then it might not be your cup of tea.

I must say that the book was wonderfully written, but overall, the book was a serious let down for me. I waited a long time for Tart to come out, and after reading Sway, I was expecting so much more. Honestly, I was not pleased with the direction of the story. Juliet Lamprey did not come across as a very likeable character to me. I really got tired of everyone saying how much Jules does for people without getting anything in return, and how she gets stepped on all the time. Everything, including Gillian's wedding was about what Jules did and how much Jules had to sacrifice. I also was not that keen on the threesome relationship. I really didn't see the sense in it. It just seemed greedy and that there really was no reason for the threesome relationship.

I couldn't put it down.. It's not just another hot steamy book.... It actually has great storylines... Real relationship issues that you can relate two..... All of Lauren Danes books are that way... This make 50 shades look 50 x more boring......

## I had been waiting for this book because even though it's a new series for Ms. Dane, it's a spin-off from her Brown siblings series. If you haven't read the Brown Siblings series yet, you really, really should. Book 1,2 & 4 are fabulous! HOLY COW those were good. And this book continues where 4 left off. I didn't like 'Tart' quite as much as I thought I would. I guess I didn't feel the connection between the h/h/h. The words were pretty but I didn't feel it. Not my very favorite, but still worth the read.

Hm... not that bad. No offense, but to me, it seemed a little dull. But l tend to always give constructive critisism! So (do) mind me. :)

I loved this book. It is an extension of the Seattle Brown series which is one of my all time favorites. It is similar to Erin's story which I loved as well. This book is about Jules and the two men she loves. It is a relationship with 3 people that love each other. It has a tragic tale of a girl (Jules) who has a horrible relationship with her immediate family through no fault of hers so she gets to pick her family and she has done extremely well in doing so. She has a great group of friends and the awesome love of two men who would both do anything for her. I definitely recommend this book and the series as a whole is awesome.

Dane's books are masterpieces of erotic romance if you are looking for A. Steaming hot and intense sex and B. Intense emotional relationships and C. A great, human cast of secondary characters. Tart is Dane at the top of her game with a rich M/M/F menage love story. Connected to the Brown sibling series, all your favorites will be back, too.

Contemporary Bainbridge Island, Washington Juliet “Jules” Lamprey is enjoying her life running her successful bakery and her friends. What she never expected was a childhood friend to come back into her life and set sparks to flying. Now Jules is having even more fun than she expected and wondering just where this is headed. Gideon Carter has come back home to help with the family farm. What starts as playing catch up with Jules turns into playing catch up in bed and heating up their lives in a ways they never expected. Gideon didn’t expect to find what he has with Jules but he knows he isn’t going to run from it. Cal Whaley is a local lawyer that has loved Jules for years but he never took it past friendship for fear of losing the closeness he and Jules have always shared. Now Cal is watching Jules fall for Gideon and he knows if he doesn’t make a move for her now he takes the chance of losing her forever. What none of them expected was all of them making a connection with each other and to such an intimate level. They are going places with each other they never expected and they now have to see if they have what it takes for the three of them to form a relationship. The dynamics between them is complicated by the emotions involved. Suddenly Jules has to leave town and she has to wonder what will happen when she returns. This is one story that the reader will need ice water nearby when they read this. The story line is sure to pull the reader in. The characters are fun to read and move the story along at a very nice pace. The detail to town life and to the friendships of the characters are sure to please readers. This one shows the value of very good friends and the support they provide. This is one is hot and not to be missed.

This is a great series. The characters combine with characters from her Brown Siblings Series which is excellent as well. I highly recommend this book.

4.5*** I loved this book. Lauren Dane again wrote great characters that are woven together in such a way that you really feel like you know theses people. I love how she keeps the characters from her past books so that we know just what's happening in their lives. Gillian and Adrian's wedding was wonderful and brought me to tears.  Jules,Cal and Gideon had such great chemistry that at times I thought the pages would light up. They complimented each other in wonderful ways and I'm in love with Gideon. I can't wit or the next book.
