Editorial Reviews

Review

"Hart plunges into the mainstream fiction genre with this haunting, devastating, heart-wrenching tale. She masterfully weaves every off-hand mention of a seemingly incidental detail, every potentially eyebrow-raising plot point together in service to her story and the resulting dramatic climax, which then becomes believable, thanks to Hart's skill. This story will stay with you long after you reach the last page."-Romantic Times Book Reviews on Precious and Fragile Things

"Megan Hart is easily one of the most talented voices I've encountered." -The Romance Reader

"This isn't like the previous books I've read from Ms. Hart and I've definitely learned to expect the unexpected from her.... I know this book will speak to others differently; it's that kind of read. For me it was dark, disturbing, difficult, uncomfortable, heartbreaking, and finally, redemptive and life affirming.... It's not easy to try and face those dark nooks and crannies in our hearts and minds we prefer to pretend don't exist." -Manic Readers

Format: Paperback
This story is about a menage trois relationship and bisexuality but it's also so much more. It's about feeling connected, companionship, respect, trust, love, and family.

Tesla works in a coffee house called Mocha where she meets Meredith. Meredith is an exciting woman that gets the regulars in the coffee house to tell her their craziest stories where Meredith seems to want to live vicariously through these people's lives. Tesla finds herself attracted and enthralled by this blue-eyed, vivacious beauty. When Meredith asks Tesla to have sex with her husband while she watches, Tesla is a little unsettled by this offer but her crush on Meredith has her saying yes. After Tesla meets Charlie, they both find they have instant chemistry and from there, a menage relationship is formed.

There are two parts to Tesla's story, the present and the past. The reader is shown flashbacks of Tesla's life as s teenager. These stories are personal and intimate looks of her life where she is discovering and defining herself as a person. The reader will also see how she and her brother end up living with her friend, once crush, Vic and his family. This family has been her home and safety for many years. When things become complicated in Vic's home, Tesla decides it's time for her to move out where she then moves in with Meredith and Charlie.

Tesla walks to the beat of her own drum. Being in a menage relationship doesn't feel odd or strange to her. She's a free-spirit and makes no apologies for who she is or her sexuality. She's honest, kind, and straight-forward. There were times when I thought she was a little naive when it came to Meredith but far from stupid. She made some bad decisions that I think come from feeling rejected and abandoned.

Rating: B- ... Heat: Hot

The Space Between Us starts with the end, so it only seems appropriate for me to do the same. This book very nearly does not give us a HEA. This stomach churning, emotion playing story waits to the last - the very last - possible moment to give us a hint, a peak, at the possibility of a HEA. Which, though it felt completely unsatisfying, did fit with the overall tone. Megan Hart did an excellent job toying with my emotions. By the very end, my stomach was such a mess that I wondered if a book could truly make me sick. This one came very close.

Tesla, our narrator, is a free spirit. A wild child, or so everyone assumes. She and her brother were raised by free lovin', commune living, swinger partying parents. Her summers were spent at the commune, where the children roamed free and were encouraged to... explore. So, for Tesla, her ways aren't wild. They simply... are what they are. She doesn't even consider herself bisexual, so much as open to all possibilities.

Which proves beyond intriguing to one of Tesla's coffeehouse patrons, Meredith. Meredith is beautiful and captivating and, quite clearly, bored with her life. She flirts and cajoles her way into people's lives, extracting their most interesting stories from them. Almost as if she gets a thrill living vicariously through them. And Tesla's stories are about as thrilling as it gets.

Many scenes throughout this story were told as flashbacks, Tesla sharing parts of her past with Meredith. And, wow, those memories pack a punch. Nearly every single one had me squirming in my seat... some because they were sexy, some because they were agonizing. Each memory left me feeling like a voyeur.

*This book was provided to the reviewer by the author in exchange for an honest review at SeductiveMusings.blogspot.com

I have to admit right up front that I am a huge fan of Megan Hart. One of the things I love most about her books is how she has, over time, created this vividly drawn world in and around Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Characters from previous books often make appearances, but never in a way that expects you to have read those books or doesn't make sense within the current story. There are a wealth of both new and previously seen supporting characters in "The Space Between Us", most of whom we meet at Morningside Mocha, the coffee shop where Tesla Martin works.

Tesla is a woman who has survived so much early in her life and now only wants to exist from day to day. She's trying to avoid any additional drama but knows that she'll never have more than she does right now if she doesn't take any chances. Everyone thinks she's a wild child based on her past (if they know it) and how she presents herself to others, but the sad truth is that her life is so dull that it's practically standing still.

It's Meredith who sways Tesla into a sexual triad with her own husband Charlie, almost solely by her force of will. Charlie appears to be as passive as Tesla, but clearly loves his wife enough to make this change in his life to please her. But as Charlie and Tesla grow closer, it remains to be seen if Meredith will be content with their new arrangement.

As I said before, I'm a big Megan Hart fangirl. So it pains me to say that "The Space Between Us" was not one that I enjoyed as much as usual. A big part of this was her decision to include a prologue that I considered tantamount to a spoiler.
