Review

Praise for the novels of Lauren Dane

“Dane always delivers a steamy, exciting ride…she leaves me wanting more!”--Larissa Ione, New York Times bestselling author

“Unputdownable…Great characters, wonderful world-building, and, as always, a delicious romance. If you pick this book up, make sure you've cleared the afternoon.”--Ann Aguirre, national bestselling author

From the Back Cover

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 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

More About the Author

The story goes like this - While on pregnancy bed rest, Lauren Dane had plenty of down time so her husband took her comments about "giving that writing thing a serious go" to heart and brought home a secondhand laptop. She wrote her first book on it before it gave up the ghost. Even better, she sold that book and never looked back.

Today Lauren is a New York Times bestselling author of over fifty novels and novellas across several genres.

Their love scenes are very steamy!
Anna (Bobs Her Hair)
The characters are always so fleshed out, flaws and all, which makes IMO a better love story.

Can't wait until the next book in the series, it looks like it's going to be great.

Juliet Lamprey has been in love with Calvin Whaley for as long as she can remember. Her best friend's brother, he has been around through it all but besides their one kiss as teenagers Cal has never picked up on the hints Jules has been throwing his way. Despite what Jules thinks though, Cal has loved her just as long. He is fearful to ruin their long friendship though if a relationship doesn't work between them. It takes their childhood friend, Gideon Carter, coming back to town and setting up shop in Jules life for Cal to throw chance to the wind and fight for his place besides Jules before he loses her to another.

I loved how the main focus of the story in Tart was on the emotional relationship between the three as oppose to the sexual relationship. Don't get me wrong, there was some hot three-way action going on but it was portrayed as more sensual then graphic, which really worked for the triad. Jules, Cal and Gideon had some obstacles to get over; negativity from family, the mechanics of a three-way relationship, trust...but thankfully they have a wonderful support system in their friends and other family members. And throughout it all, Lauren Dane kept it real. I had no trouble believing that this relationship could happen in real life to any one of my friends. I really enjoyed watching it unfold and the dynamics between the triad develop. And the dynamics of the relationship was a major lure for me. Lauren Dane I think gave the story a unique twist with not making it a typical M/F/M, yes the three were together sexually but each of the men took turns with Jules or each other, there were plenty of M/F scenes alone and surprisingly only one M/M scene. It was all very tastefully written.

Lauren Dane hits this one out of the park. It was an amazing read that kept my attention the whole way through.

I won't bore you with a thorough review because it's something that you'd have to read for yourself to appreciate. Lauren Dane's witty and straight forward humor is on point in this romantic tale of three hearts coming together and finding a lasting love.

Some of my favorite quotes from the book:
When Cal tells his mother about the unconventional triad relationship she replies to his brother: "Ryan, bring me my emergency cigarette." I laughed so loud that I had tears in my eyes.

Cal comes over to Juliet's house wanting to have some sexy time and her reply was simply: "Dude, please don't manage me right now. I'm telling you, I'm on my period and I want to cut someone. Just begone." Again...L.O.L. *Waves hand in the air* Been there!

And finally when Cal goes to Gideon's to tell him about his time with Juliet (see above quote) and Gideon responded with: "She told me she was feeling stabbity and to go away." "Stabbity got me and I literally hollered.

Gotta love Lauren Dane! 4 shiny stars!

I have been waiting and waiting for Tart, book 2 in the Delicious series, and I was not disappointed. I am completely and utterly in love with Cal, Gideon and Jules.

Juliet "Jules" has been in love with Calvin "Cal" Whaley since she was a teen, but Cal has been afraid to admit his feeling for Jules and risk loosing their wonderful friendship. Jules and Cal have known Gideon since childhood. Gideon's grandparents own a local farm on Bainbridge Island and he has come home to help his granddad with the farm after the loss of the grandmother. When Jules and Gideon reconnect and begin dating, Cal knows he must step and tell Jules how he really feels.

This was my second Lauren Dane story. I read Sway a story featured in the anthology Cherished. I fell in love with how Dane writes when I read that, and I'm still in love with how she tells a story in Tart. Her writing has humor and a freshness is added to the dialogue. When you're introduced to the people in the delicious group you get a total picture and understanding of who they are. I could even see and hear them as they talked because that's just how good the dialogue was and the setting was written.

I loved the chemistry between Gideon, Juliet, and Calvin. Even though we don't see a triad relationship in our every day life that doesn't mean that the reader can't relate to what they are going through, the issues that rise, and the love they share. It's a complete love story in the sense that the reader for the most part really gets to watch their every day life for 3 months; skip a few days or weeks give or take, here and there. There is the interaction with each other but also with everyone involved in their lives, so it's not just sex scene and after sex scene. It's more like the sex scenes are placed around what's important in their lives and the sex is just one of the many other things that is a part of their normal lives. The sex is hot but it's also very tasteful and so is the menage relationship.

Lauren Dane's writing made me feel like a fly on the wall sitting on a tart eves dropping on everything happening. I wasn't just reading a book. Buy it and you'll enjoy the release of stress you'll feel and the lightness on your shoulders from everthing else going on in your life. Don't forget to have some dessert and tea on hand while you read. The complete experience will be well worth it.
