I wanted to know more about the man who could break through that tough exterior. Little did I know it would be two men...kind of. Threesomes...are tricky things and I don't think I've ever read one that actually worked. Still, I was willing to give this one a chance especially after reading the blurb. However, as I was reading along, I just kept asking myself..."How in the hell is this going to work?" Heidi and her husband, Tucker, are really great together but after ten years, things have gotten quite routine...something that Tucker thrives in but Heidi? Not so much. You would think with her high stress job of being a publicist that she would enjoy the calm but it didn't really work that way. Enter Ransom...lead singer of a rock band and sex on a stick. The band's having a bit of an image problem and that's where Heidi comes in. Problem is that Ransom has been on Heidi's F*ck-It-List (men she can f*ck without repercussion) so she's a little apprehensive. However, that all flies out the window the moment she sees him in person. Of course, Tucker is with her so she has to act like she has things under control. Later at the after party, Ransom invites both Heidi and Tucker to his private room and well, things get a bit intense. Most shocking was Tucker's behavior. The frustrating thing is that we never really get his spin on things. His POV in the blurb is the only one we get...and I had sooo many questions! Naturally, Heidi and Ransom are thrown together at every "chance"...and things become a little blurred. Heidi loves her husband dearly but there is just something about Ransom. And Ransom is your typical spoiled, brooding musician. Again, I would have loved a few chapters from his POV but the only one we get is the epilogue and it's disappointing but more on that later! The scenes are pretty spicy and really get amped up once everybody decides to go to Justice's Oasis...exactly the place they need to go to deal with all this sexual tension. LOL! But some of the wording was just a little over-the-top for me such as this example: "He licks my nipples with rose petal strokes, and continues to paint my skin with his warm, wet venom." Venom? really? How sexy is that? I really liked reading about Justice's and Heidi's relationship and how it evolved. It was great that she could turn to him for help. There's a lot of drama that plays out and while I knew something shady was going on, I really wasn't expecting what came out. Then, there's the ending...WTF? Really? I just don't know what to say except it felt like a cop out. Things were wrapped up and everyone, and I mean everyone moved on. How disappointing. The only bright spot was the epilogue and who's book will be next. I'm really going to try to stay open minded! Favorite quote: ♥ “You’re all I want, Bunny.” (Prior to review) OMG!!! what the hellll was up w/that ending? ugh...i just knew it! :(

    A sultry novel about exploring your deepest desires and then realizing you can never go back. What would you do if your heart pulls you in one direction, while your body longs for something else? People in the entertainment industry tremble at the sight of Heidi DuCane. She’s one of the best publicists around. Her desire for success is only rivaled by her love for her husband Tucker. But their marriage has become routine and stale and there’s very little Tucker won’t do to please her. In A sultry novel about exploring your deepest desires and then realizing you can never go back. What would you do if your heart pulls you in one direction, while your body longs for something else? People in the entertainment industry tremble at the sight of Heidi DuCane. She’s one of the best publicists around. Her desire for success is only rivaled by her love for her husband Tucker. But their marriage has become routine and stale and there’s very little Tucker won’t do to please her. Including giving her a free pass with one of her fantasies. Ransom Reed is a brilliantly haunted rock star that can’t keep a publicist. When he meets Heidi and her husband, they do more that talk shop. He offers her a night of pleasure while Tucker watches. Knowing his wife has needs he can’t satisfy, Tucker encourages Heidi and the three enjoy their time together. Their ride on the wild side makes Heidi realize that going back to the too perfectly sweet intimacy she had with Tucker isn’t enough anymore. But the day after brings more than realization for Heidi, there’s also the conflict of interest of getting to close with a client and the almost crushing guilt of loving her husband but wanting more with another man. I absolutely love S.L. Jennings writing. I fell in love with it while reading Taint and I dare to say Tryst’s writing is even better. I was captivated by the story that’s filled with heartache, angst, lust and love. Told only from Heidi’s point of view, we got to know hers and Tucker’s history with the few chapters that went back in time to when they met and how their relationship developed cementing even further their undying love. I felt so much for Heidi and admired how strong a person she became. I suffered and enjoyed everything along with her. From her uncertainty to her desires. But I did get to a point where I wanted to say enough with the angst and ask what happened to the tough as nails, strong and smart woman at the beginning of the story? Ransom is also a great character to get to know, he’s such a complex and intriguing man. This is also where I had a bit of trouble. I love the twist at the end but felt the story to be resolved too quickly and that I didn’t get to know enough of Ransom’s layers, that there were a lot of questions regarding him that were probably purposefully left unanswered. This together with the prolonged anxiety and what I felt as a rushed and not completely happy ending left me wanting. I’m sure opinions may vary and some could focus on Heidi’s sexual awakening and the incredibly hot and steamy scenes together with Heidi’s plight between loving the man who’s been her everything and the man who she desires and is infatuated with. Besides, I can’t stress enough how good the writing is. I will definitely continue to look for S.L.’s work. Tryst is the second book in the Sexual Education series by S.L. Jennings. It has interconnecting characters from the previous book but can be read as a standalone. Told from the heroine’s point of view.

Yup, that's my weakness, I can't resist them. I found the writing to be excellent. It was very smooth and I fell into the story as if I was part of it. I was totally invested, biting my nails, holding my breath…waiting…worrying. I confess that I loved Ransom from the get-go. I "dissolved into a puddle of warm honey" too. As Heidi struggled with her "sexual suicide", I was already decided. I knew exactly what I wanted to happen, how I wanted the story to end. While I enjoyed most of the book, it left me wanting. I'm one of those readers that can deal with anything in the middle, as long as it turns out how I want it to in the end. I'm not squeamish about any sexual or criminal activities, but don't mess with my heart…at least not permanently. I enjoy a good ugly cry on occasion and I've survived the loss of a favorite character and still managed to love the book I was reading…as long as it ended up how I needed it to. It's like a good spanking, followed by a gentle rub or kiss to ease the hurt. My problem is that my vision for these characters did not line up with the direction the author chose to go. It's simply a matter of preference. I know there will be many people that feel differently. I'm not saying it was bad, it just didn't leave me with that cigarette after sex feeling of satisfaction that my favorite books provide. So, it's not you, it's me. Can we still be friends?

Let me start by saying I am so glad I didn't buy this book, but borrowed it from my library because it sucked The "about book" is so different from what the book is. For example it makes it sound like we will get a pov from Tucker, which we don't. We never even know what he is thinking because they never once even talk about it. It was so weird.

You think Tucker is mad afterwards but they don't talk about it so you don't even know his feelings on it. You never know his feelings at all through the book. She ends up falling in love with Ransom, but won't leave her husband because she loves him so much, yet all she ever does is think about Ransom, dururing sex, while masturbating. She even cheats on Tucker and its like not a big deal. Everyone just keeps moving on. The ending is horrible to me because I feel like she only ends up with Tucker because Ransom doesn't come back to her. If he had it would have been a different story. Right before the accident she is basically ready to leave Tucker for Ransom and because Ransom doesn't come for her, now she is happy being with Tucker. It was gross to me because Heidi was a complete and total selfish bitch because she needed to be who she was. How does how you have sex make you who you are. I absolutely hated Heidi, and it wasn't even the good hate, where the character drew such deep feelings from me. I just hated her and wanted to stop reading. This was such a huge let down, especially after Taint. I will say S.L. Jennings writing is good.

But then again, maybe not.” This is one of those books that has me torn, on one hand I wanted to hate it but I couldn’t, I loved it…but that just goes to show the power of the story that SL Jennings weaves, love and hate, there is a fine line…gah!! Kudos to SL Jennings, she took this book to a place I didn’t see coming, an ending I never anticipated, but upon reflection an ending that fitted the characters involved, no matter how I wished things to turn out differently. “Maybe what they say about artists is true. Maybe their art truly is the source of their sanity and the villain of their demise.” I have seen these lists mentioned in many books, that list where you get a free pass to screw a celebrity/famous person without repercussions from your husband/wife/partner. Normally that list contains names that you will never ever meet, let alone get the opportunity, so they are pure fantasy, never a reality. “I know that after tonight, I’ll never be just fine again.” Heidi DuCane is a powerful publicist and is fantastic at her job, she also has Justice as a client too and for all Justice fans, he does make an appearance in this book!! She is a work-a-holic and thrives on the pressure, but she is a fixer, she has a sharp tongue when needed, she has a back bone, but most of all she has respect. Underneath her business façade though is a woman that is hopelessly in love with her husband, Tucker. Tucker also works all the hours, he is a psychiatrist with an A List client list, so as you can imagine is kept tirelessly busy. So these two together…just fit…but life is getting boring. “I’ve bitten the apple, I’ve sucked the seed, and now I want that sin to grow deep inside me.” Same date nights, same restaurants, same dinners, same routine, nigh on scheduled sex and Heidi is beginning to feel the monotony of it all. Underneath her exterior lies a woman with needs and these needs are not getting fulfilled and the older she gets the more she wants to explore those fantasies, fantasies that her husband isn’t willing to try. Heidi has a shocking back story and one that certainly is not pretty, but Tucker has seen her at her worst and brought her back from the brink, his reticence is not because he doesn’t want to, but because of the potential repercussions…he thinks like a shrink. So when Heidi is asked to take on a new client…one that is on her list…will she succumb to temptation, to that free pass? Will it ruin her marriage? Will it ruin her? Will it ruin everything? Ransom Reed was adorable, yes he was incredibly mucked up, but that just made his character all the more endearing. I would love to have known more about his back story to make me understand why he was the way he was but I feel that this is not the last we are going to hear about him, so maybe that may come further down the line. But with Ransom you couldn’t help but want to nurture him. From the beginning he had that rock star persona but he also had that air of vulnerability and he wasn’t afraid to let it show. He wore his heart on his sleeve and who can resist a man who sings while he makes his women cum…multiple times. “Shatter me with lies You beautiful monster Feel like I could die Let you pull me under.” This book does have some M/F/M action and these scenes were written perfectly, the emotion conveyed through the words on the page resonated deep and I went through this with Heidi, Tucker and Ransom. I felt the conflicted emotions, I felt the hesitancy, the reticence, but I also felt their connection Heidi/Tucker and Heidi/Ransom. Each pairing was individual and each catered to a different side of the other, but together these three have fantastic potential, but can they all deal? Can they all co-exist? It is fine having these fantasies on paper but when they turn into a reality what will happen? “What have we done?” As I said above this one did not go the way I expected, SL Jennings certainly knows how to throw in curve balls, throw in those little plot twists that really open your eyes and make you see everything you have read in a different light. It was here I was like…I should hate this…but I don’t…I should hate this…but I love it…this is hell, this shouldn’t be happening… this is genius, I never saw this coming. But at the end no matter how conflicted I was, it was right and at the end of the day I applaud SL Jennings for taking her characters where she did, it was their story. “Be careful what you wish for.” www.theromancecover.com

It's been so cool to watch her evolve as an author, as I read years worth of writing in two short months. The writing in Tryst was flat out FLAWLESS. The story sucked me in so deep that I felt everything these characters were feeling. I was frustrated and hurt right along with Tucker, conflicted, yet yearning for more with Heidi, and felt just as lonely and desperate to connect as Ransom did. Such flawed, yet lovable characters. We got a glimpse of Heidi in Taint, but this Heidi seems like a completely different person. In Taint, we see her as the tough as nails, Ice Queen publicist. In Tryst, we see a more vulnerable, sensitive, human side to her. I honestly don't know if I would've, or COULD'VE done a thing differently if I were in her shoes. Tucker. That fucker is a saint. I really wanted to hate him before I even started, so that Heidi and Ransom could ride off into the sunset guilt-free. But of course, he had to go and be all perfect. He did have an "OH HELLLLL NO" moment, but I still can't fault him for it. Ransom. Ransom, Ransom, Ransom. He is so beautiful, but so empty inside. He's the one in a crowded room, yet feels completely alone. My heart hurt for him maybe most of all. I just want to hold him. Regardless of who ends up with who, we know someone (or everyone) will get hurt. And it's not pretty. I did NOT expect the story to go the in the direction it did. Never saw that coming. My heart was pounding in the last 10%, and I still can't believe what I just read. S.l. Jennings has become an automatic-one-click-author for me, and I cannot wait to read more from her!

    So have you ever read a book that left you feeling torn? Well in this particularly case, S.L. Jennings sure does deliver a book that will have you go crazy. Crazy in a good way that this book is so sinfully addicting and then crazy omg I'm afraid to know what will happen next. Tryst is not your conventional romance. This book challenges readers to step outside of the box and see an unconventional relationship begin to take form in a marriage that needs an extra spice to help liven things up.

This book challenges readers to step outside of the box and see an unconventional relationship begin to take form in a marriage that needs an extra spice to help liven things up. While this book is filled with an endless of steamy erotic sex scenes, Ms. Jennings was still able to incorporate an emotional undertone to the story between the three main characters of the book. And let me just say, this drama angst filled ride can definitely leave readers with a whiplash. So if you are brave enough to take a sexy ride of an unconventional romance that involves a plethora of cheating and threesome, then Tryst might be the book for you. As always, Ms. Jennings delivers a sinfully erotic story with her stunning prose that will definitely entice any reader that maybe a tryst might be what the doctor order or not.

    A little birdie told me...

    I loved Taint so much... I feel utterly defeated by Tryst. Heidi, the high-powered publicist we get a glimpse of in Taint, is front and center in this book. She is in a seemingly perfect marriage with a loving and devoted husband. But somehow, it's not enough for her.

Heidi, the high-powered publicist we get a glimpse of in Taint, is front and center in this book. She is in a seemingly perfect marriage with a loving and devoted husband. But somehow, it's not enough for her. After trudging through her past, we see a horrible event (which is rushed in telling and in showing her recovery) that might have critically damaged a person. Heidi bounces back, hardened, sure, but still her ability to push through and persevere is seemingly remarkable. That's until her darkness emerges. Then we start to notice her seemed perfection is anything but. Her husband, Tucker, a man, who I must add, used to be her psychologist, tries to help her through it. He can't give her what she needs, but an opportunity "falls" in their laps that just might help them both. Enter Ransom Reed. (What is it with the dumb names?) They forge a drunken arrangement and figure that'll be the end of it, but Heidi didn't realize Ransom was broken, more than even she was. I'm not judging (at least not at first) their decisions or their initial arrangement. I feel that if they have a little discussion before and especially afterward, consenting adults can explore together. They didn't discuss at all. It's the aftermath where it went to shit. None of the parties handled anything correctly from here on out, even the supposed professional. Psychologists have ethical and moral standards to follow. Helping one person at the expense of another, especially when doing it for selfish reasons, definitely crosses the line. Novel. Ruined. For me, at least. Also, this was a Sexual Education novel, so who was educated? All I saw was a whole lot of mistakes where no one learned any lessons; the lessons were just ignored. Justice Drake makes an appearance, which was a "yay!" moment for me, and he is a great voice of reason for Heidi. Then after a weird and awkward moment, I end up kinda losing respect for the guy. *sigh* So what went right? The writing, as per the usual with Mrs. Jennings, is spotless. I love how she explains what the characters feel. Even if I don't understand where they are coming from exactly, I can at least see the inner workings of their minds. Not many authors do this as well as she does. I don't like the end, and even after I predicted it early on in the book, I hoped it wouldn't be true. I still feel duped. I won't spoil it, but it made me angrier than I've been in a while. The epilogue leads into the next novel with Mrs. Carmichael, the preacher's wife mentioned in Taint. It's a maybe.

It was unabashedly truthful and insightful, and made me love and hurt for each of the participants in turn. Heidi DuCane is the publicist to the stars. Having first met her in Thrust as Justice Drake’s publicist and friend, she is still as razor tongued, still as no-nonsense. But now we get to see the personal side of her. Heidi’s psychiatrist husband, Tucker, is the glue that keeps Heidi grounded and the calming influence in her life. He is smart, handsome, gentle and loves Heidi to distraction. Their life is perfect, except for the fact that Tucker does not give her what she needs. He does not give her the roughness, the carnality, the dirty sex she craves. But when an opportunity arises to give Heidi what she needs, and they invite rock star Ransom Reed into their bed, they open Pandora’s box that can’t be closed again. I have to say that I just loved this book. It was completely not what I expected, but it had me riveted nonetheless. The raw honesty pulled me in and wouldn’t let me go because the feelings throughout this story were so real and open. Heidi knew she had a good thing with Tucker, she knew she loved and adored him. And yet she couldn’t get Ransom out of her mind. The line of cheating was so blurred in this story because the sex with Ransom was had with Tucker’s permission and urging, with him there. But the emotions that arose after a stranger was invited into their marriage were unanticipated by everyone involved. I loved that this book had no clear angels or devils. No one was wholly without fault in this odd relationship, and everyone played an equal part in the destruction that took place. Everyone was hurt and came out a different person than they went in. It was dark and real and sexy and sad and everything you could ask for when you pick up a book. Review copy provided for an honest review.

    Let me start by saying, I have not read Taint. I have it because the cover was just so freaking awesome and everybody said it was a must read. I know nothing about any of these in characters in Tryst or whether they were in the previous book. Frankly, I opted to read Tryst without having read the blurb because of Taint and my friends opinion on that title alone. Was that a good idea? Not sure but I can tell you this: HOLY JAW ON FLOOR, BATMAN! How! What?! How! My next book had better rock becaus Let me start by saying, I have not read Taint. I have it because the cover was just so freaking awesome and everybody said it was a must read. I know nothing about any of these in characters in Tryst or whether they were in the previous book. Frankly, I opted to read Tryst without having read the blurb because of Taint and my friends opinion on that title alone. Was that a good idea? Not sure but I can tell you this: HOLY JAW ON FLOOR, BATMAN! How! What?! How! My next book had better rock because I have no idea how I am going to recover from reading Tryst! My brain is still spinning and it’s been a full day since I finished. The characters. Heidi, Tucker, Ransom. Let’s start with Heidi. I had a love/hate relationship with her. Here this woman seems to have the perfect life: Perfect job, husband, everything. And yet here she is fantasizing about another man. Okay it’s really more of a ‘who I would do with no consequences’ fantasy but still. She has the perfect life…or so it would seem. Tucker, now he I found annoying. Not because he was a annoying character but because, nothing ever seemed to ruffle his feathers. Ever. Generous, attentive and gentle to a fault he is the perfect husband. He’s also a shrink. Wrap your thoughts around that for a moment…. Lastly, there is Ransom. Again a love/hate relationship. I found him exciting, sexy, intoxicating and…needy. He’s a rock-star yet I didn’t find him to be that JLO demanding. It was more of a broken soul, but even they get tiring. The story. Happily married couple decides to take a walk on the wild side and gets more than they bargained for. No shocker there. Heidi and Tucker are happily married and very much in love but things have gotten a little too routine so they decide to spice up their sex life a bit…by bringing one of Heidi’s fantasies to life. The one where she get to have sex with the star of her 'who I would do with no consequences' fantasy, Ransom, while Tucker watches. And of course it is followed up by next day regrets…by Heidi. It’s not that she cheated on her husband, oh no. She had his full blessings. Only, it awakens desires in her that her perfect husband in her perfect marriage just can’t fill. My thoughts and feelings. I literally stayed up all night reading Tryst because I could not put this train wreck of a story down. There were times I wanted to take everybody and smack them upside the head to ask them WHAT WERE YOU THINKING!!! No a take it back, not Ransom, at least not a first. Heidi and Tucker definitely. The story is told completely from her 1st person POV so you get to experience all her roller coaster inner turmoil and self-loathing. How she loves her husband and what she feels for Ransom. It’s all very tumultuous and unpredictable blowing away everything I expected to happen. Except for the sex. Yeah that was Seriously. Hot. Stuff. However, I feel the need to mention a few things on that subject. If you have triggers regarding rape or multiple sex partners, this is not the book for you. For those two reasons alone I am tagging this book 5-Flames. So if either of those things bother you, put it down now and walk away. But, it you are willing to experience the good, bad and ugly, lock yourself in a room and be prepared to be blown away. Tryst is my very first book by author S.L. Jennings and let me tell you, it was well worth the read. Rarely do I find a book that grabs me, sucks me in and leaves me in shock. How I felt when I first started reading and how I feel now is a completely reversal. I’m almost glad I didn’t read Taint first because now I have something to read from this incredibly author. Will there be a 3rd book, I have no clue but I have every possible part on my body crossed hoping there will be! I received this book from the JeepDiva for the express purposes of an honest review. The opinions and rating of this review are solely mine and in no way was I compensated. Stars – 5, Flames - 5

    Not one of my faves by Jennings. I couldn't grasp Tucker/Heidi/Ransom. I think what made book 1 so good was Justice's voice.

I don’t know what to feel – anger, hate, love, deflated maybe? It’s all a mixed and my head is somewhere between I’m not even sure what. Although after reading the epilogue, and considering my thoughts about epilogue itself, well it left me in a state of indecision. I’m not sure if I actually liked it or not, hence the half point there, and considering what I felt and what I think being in synced in a state of uncertainty, that’s a lot to be said. Usually, either my thoughts or my emotions override one another. Well, before I delved deeper into that, let’s go back to the beginning itself. I’ve only thought about reading this book because I’ve read Taint and it was something that left a mark. It was one of my favorite books, considering I’ve reread it a couple of times and well hello, Justice Drake, that sexual man, do I need to say more? It’s been a while, I think over a year and quite frankly, all I remember is Ally and Justice. Never thought his dragon of a publicist will have a story of her own. I can only describe Heidi as a Pitbull, but beneath all that sass and tongue-lashing is a broken woman with needs that she’s too afraid to own. Living in her head actually makes me think of women in general, their fears, their insecurities, the very life the women lives appearing strong and confident but you really don’t know what she’s hiding beneath the mask that she presented to the world. Tucker is man I want to hate and love at the same time. He’s so loving and considerate and calm and somehow I wanted to shout in his face and tell him to get angry, to scream and curse. But deep down, I want him. That kind of man who would only think what his woman wants, and provide what she needs. The sacrifices he made, he’s like I don’t know, on his way for being proclaimed a saint for that matter. But behind all that, there’s a mystery that surrounds him and aside from his gentle ways, I wanted to see what that calmness behind would unleash if he ever loses control. I didn’t really like Ransom Reed. Sure, he was sex personified. But he was like the stereotyped artist, that with all his brooding and his personality, I didn’t get the mystery vibe nor did I felt for him being broken. He was hot, he was a woman’s fantasy but that’s all that, a fantasy. This is more like a story of an old vice, that you want one thing you can never have or someone unattainable and when presented the opportunity, you all but crumble and struggle to get your bearings fast enough to get what has been offer and devour it. Heidi’s action, if viewed with a closed mind, can be frowned upon. She will be condemned and with Justice’s reaction, he was disappointed with her. But I see her in a different light. As much as how Taint have painted the life of Manhattan wives in a very realistic life, the Author painted Heidi in a way that makes you question if this does really happened in real life. Not the trip to Oasis or being Justice’s publicist, of course, because that’s just a dream, but her married life and the routine that she and Tucker have built continue to live their life. This book is a must read, as it is one of my favorite subject: rediscovering women’s sexuality. But if you don’t have an opened mind, or you’re easily offended, please don’t even think of looking at this book. Move on. Seriously. So, going back to the whys of my indecision, here it is: at the end of the last chapter, I felt I was left in a state that I want more, I want to know more. The author left me craving and I all but beg that this should not be the ending. It’s like me saying, ’No! You can’t do this to me!’ I wanted there to be an epilogue, something to give me closure. Anything to be satisfied. And there it is, what I’ve been asking for and I was surprised, to be honest. I didn’t expect it. Still, no matter, my feelings and thoughts are left in uncertainty. Anyway, with all that, there’s one thing that made an impact to me. Aside from reading more of Justice and Ally, because hello I love them, I think I needed to track down, maybe hire a hacker or something all of Justice’s clients before the Oasis was turned into a spa for couples. Just saying. For more about me and my crazy ramblings and post, reviews, giveaways and other stuff:

This is the second book in the Sexual Education series. We are in the life of Heidi Ducane. The almighty publicist of Justice from book one, Heidi is one tough lady! Then we meet her husband, Tucker. He's a pretty but bland and predictable psychiatrist, she met while in college. I did not really care much for Tucker. Yes, he seemed devoted enough to Heidi but he never really did a thing for me. Which i'm assuming the author intended, because bring in hot rock star, Ransom Reed. Let's just say, I forget all about Tucker. So, Ransom is on Heidi's "do" list, the one where if they were to ever meet she'd get a hall pass. Turns out Ransom is in need of a new publicist. The stoic, boring, doc Tucker, ends up engaging in quite a hot little tryst involving him, Heidi & Ransom when Heidi meets her new client for the first time and Tucker insists on joining her. Things get hot & heavy quick. Ransom can be what Tucker isn't for Heidi, a little rough and a lot passionate. Turns out Heidi likes things a little rougher since her attack long ago in college and Tucker just cant seem to accommodate her. I couldn't put the book down while Heidi and Ransom struggle to keep their libidos, their passion and their attraction to one another in check,especially after the threesome that rocked their worlds! Heidi is trying to stay true to her husband Tucker and professional to Ransom. The angst and longing were so amazing I was on the edge of my seat most of the book, praying for Ransom and Heidi to break and give in to their longing. Then all sorts of things flew to hell. Heidi finds out Tucker is keeping secrets and so is Ransom! Then BAM, everything changes in one fell swoop and next thing you know...Tucker and Heidi live happily ever after? WHAT??? HOW? After all that happened? I was left reeling. WORST. ENDING. EVER! Where is Ransom? Then we get this lame epilogue that did nothing for me?! All I can hope is that Ransom's book is next, cuz that was horribly anticlimactic.

    Everybody knows there's a line that you don't cross. Once you do.. there's no turning back. Things can never be the same. Nobody knows that better than the characters in this book! I am not a cheater. I do not condone cheating and I don't always enjoy books that have cheating! But somethings it works. Sometimes it makes sense. Let me now say... HOLY HELL is this book hot!! It's dirty, sexy and tantalizing, yet it's sad all at the same time. I felt for all the characters, each in a different way. I em Everybody knows there's a line that you don't cross.

Was she a shining example of a woman I want to be? Not at all. She took a taste of something she shouldn't have. Feelings got involved and people got hurt. Tucker! Damn this man is the most wonderful husband ever invented!!! Loved him. Ransom. Dark, dangerous, delicious. But even he got sucked into something that he couldn't turn back from. I felt for him too!!! This story has several twists and turns. You might not agree with their decisions and I can honestly say that there were moments I didn't quite connect with or agree with, but damn! It was a quick, naughty read that definitely hit the spot! *ARC received via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review Read more reviews at Judy's Confessions

    THREESOMES! Some love them, Some adore them. Some loathe them. Sometimes they help. Sometimes they hinder. Sometimes they do both. In Tryst, well you are just going to have to read to find out! But trust when I say that you will not be disappointed in the least. We see Heidi (from Taint), her husband and a very suave jaded Rocker. Heidi is still powerful in every sense except for this one Rocker. He literally gets under her skin (hint hint). You begin to see Heidi as someone you either could be or k THREESOMES!

Imagine being a powerhouse, everything in your life is spot on, then you begin to see that the same thing day in and day out is starting to grind your gears and then someone enters and throws everything off. You begin to want for something different, not going to the same restaurant on the same day of the week and ordering a pizza is a big change. Or watching a movie instead of the news.Then you begin to want for….someone else. How would you be able to handle it? Imagine not well. The same can be said for Heidi. So…. she consults her old client turned friend for advice and off the three of them go. Some seriously hot scenes take place where you have to fan yourself to continue reading happen! But most off all an enlightening experience happens and as before you gave to read to see what happens. There is definitely drama, angst, hot sex, several twists and turns and more hot sex.

Tucker watches while Ransom has his way with his wife and he is okay with that but that one night things become a little strange in their marriage. Heidi might love her husband but she wants more. Needless to say at the end of the book I wasn't really sure how I felt about the entire scenario. It took me days to read it and was shocked how Ransom ended up treating Heidi after what they did. I mean he almost killed her and didn't reach out to her. What a prick! At least she had Tucker by her side. Overall this wasn't the book for me but maybe it will be for someone else.

    Twisted would been better title for this book, I didn't like much the story and I have been at edge of my comfort zone through all the reading...and not because I'm prude, but because arrangement between Heidi, Tucker and Ransom is wrong in much way than one, let me tell only one among all, the ethical and moral standards who Tacker, as psychologist pass over. So while I understand kinks, needs,sacrifice for love ,I find the story vulgar and morbid. Not help the end, what is the lesson learned; Twisted would been better title for this book, I didn't like much the story and I have been at edge of my comfort zone through all the reading...and not because I'm prude, but because arrangement between Heidi, Tucker and Ransom is wrong in much way than one, let me tell only one among all, the ethical and moral standards who Tacker, as psychologist pass over.

    Readers who enjoy romances full of emotional ups and downs will find themselves drawn to this tale of rekindling romance and valuing what you have. Though there are times when the characters annoyed me I still found myself fully immersed in this sensual tale full of conflicts. From start to finish this is a story that's not afraid to show people's dirty sides, it's memorable in that it doesn't take the expected twists and turns, and by story's end it doesn't culminate as expected either. It's a Readers who enjoy romances full of emotional ups and downs will find themselves drawn to this tale of rekindling romance and valuing what you have. Though there are times when the characters annoyed me I still found myself fully immersed in this sensual tale full of conflicts. From start to finish this is a story that's not afraid to show people's dirty sides, it's memorable in that it doesn't take the expected twists and turns, and by story's end it doesn't culminate as expected either. It's a gritty story, not always ethical nor showing people at their best, but it will leave you talking. Heidi's been drawn to Tucker ever since an emotional and physical trauma led her to seek his psychological help which led to an even deeper connection. After ten years though, and despite how sweet and understanding he is, she's starting to find their life becoming too routine. She's frustrated not getting everything she wants out of their sex life because of his extreme care of her which leads her down a path that will shake their marriage to its foundation. When Heidi comes face to face with the rock star that she's always been attracted to she thinks she's been hired to make his life better but one combustible night leads to emotional upheaval and tons of angst that could destroy them all. Throughout everything Heidi remains a strong-willed woman full of conflict and a bit of self-doubt. She truly loves her husband and knows how lucky she is to be with him but she can't keep ignoring her dark sexual desires that he sees as unhealthy. When given the opportunity to indulge in everything she wants she doesn't hesitate to take it despite the hurt she knows it will cause. She's selfish at times and not as committed to her marriage as her husband despite what she says and in my opinion. Tucker is older and wiser and was just what Heidi needed to heal from a vicious sexual attack. He's still that kindhearted man today, totally devoted to his clients, who wants to make his wife happy but who treats her with kid's gloves. To make Heidi happy he's willing to let her have one night with the rock star she's always been drawn to which ends up creating unexpected entanglements all in the name of healing. While this connection may have brought out Tucker's wild side, by story's end it feels that they're right back in the comfort zone they started out with. I liked Tucker and for the most part he was honorable, barring an unethical twist revealed late in the story, but I wish we'd gotten into his psyche more. As the story was told from Heidi's POV we never got to hear Tucker's thoughts which would've made for a richer story as the storyline revolved around their marriage. From the outside rock star Ransom seems to have it all, but inside he's a mess. He suffers from depression, feelings of loss, and has an addictive personality. He's also super sexy with a bad boy vibe mixed with that of a lost little boy you can't help wanting to heal. It's this side of his personality that calls to Heidi as she wants to keep him safe. Ransom's attraction to her is instantaneous and combustible. He never holds back in giving her what she wants and like two addicts they keep coming back for more despite the damage it's doing to her marriage. Throughout their time together though there's a sense of impending doom, a clock counting down that has them frantic in each other's arms. He might have thought himself in love with her but it was a toxic love, one based on loneliness, that left me feeling frustrated by each player in this complicated relationship. Readers who enjoy erotica will find that part of the story immensely satisfying as the sexual encounters were plentiful, scorching, and varied in intensity when sex play was included. From the outside each character seemed in control but inside they were a bit bruised and battered emotionally. Tucker was the kind of husband every girl wants but his job as psychiatrist permeated his life which had him often analyzing Heidi in a cool demeanor that angered her. I was also disappointed by his lack of ethics when it came to one of his patients and how close he became to him. Ransom's a young man desperate to find someone to love him just for himself. His little lost boy persona had me wanting to hug him while his sexy rock god persona easily brought about other naughty thoughts. My least favorite character was Heidi who I found selfish. She was willing to sacrifice a marriage any woman would want, along with manipulating a young man who clearly had issues, all in the name of her finding sexual satisfaction. People saw her as cutthroat in business and I saw her as cutthroat in her personal life too along with feelings that were wishy-washy regarding love and the two men in her life. Though I was often left frustrated by Heidi's actions I was still drawn to this story. The characters were far from perfect but the insights into love and marriage were compelling. This book is part of a series but definitely stands on its own for its original, but too easily resolved, ending and unexpected twists and turns. 3.5 STARS!

Who wouldn’t want someone to sing to them as you are freefalling from ecstasy??!! This is not your normal romance novel though.

I wanted him to jump out of my kindle and into bed with me! Who wouldn’t want someone to sing to them as you are freefalling from ecstasy??!! This is not your normal romance novel though. Tryst is definitely one that plays on your emotions and has your heart split between two men. If you were given a pass to sleep with your celebrating crush would you? This is what Heidi struggles with. It will make you think, what would you do for your spouse or significant other? If your wildest dream was to sleep with a rock star and they said ok, would you? It’s an emotional rollercoaster that will take you high, twist your heart around, and leaving you thinking what the hell!!! Heidi is a New York City publicist working with some high profile clients. When her and her husband, Tucker are invited to a party never in a million years did she think the one person at the top of her celebrity "hall pass" list would be in bed with her. You know the list you make for fun with your significant other that would be your free pass to have sex with them. Ransom Reed is oozes sex appeal and being the front man for the group Ransom has him living the rock and roll lifestyle. Heidi and Tucker have been happily married for 10 years but something is missing. Tucker is the perfect husband and never a day has gone by where Heidi doesn’t feel love or cherished. When Heidi, Tucker, and Ransom meet at a party the sexual chemistry between Heidi and Ransom is off the charts! After the drinks are flowing and the normal inhibitions are let down, Tucker suggests to Heidi the unthinkable, the pass to sleep with Ransom as long as he dictates what happens. This scene is SOOOOO UNBELIVABLE HOT!! Hot I tell you!! What was supposed to be one night turns into something more. Heidi is hired to be Ransom's publicist and unfortunately for her, she cannot stop thinking about that night and she isn’t the only one. Both Ransom and Heidi struggle to move past it. Heidi is married and is in love with her husband but a part of her soul was left with Ransom. When Ransom goes all rock star mode and trashes a bar, Heidi and his manager decide he needs to detox and clear his mind. Heidi just happens to have Justice Drake as a client and knows his compound has state of the art security and is an exclusive escape. After what happened with Ransom, she also thought it would be good for her and Tucker time to reconnect. The three of them head to Justice's compound for a week of relaxation. Yes I did say Justice Drake!! Why did I think this was such a bad idea... With emotions still to fresh with Heidi and Ransom, she knows she needs to make things right with Tucker. She loves him and knows she belongs to him. But there is just something about Ransom she identifies with that she cannot move past, no matter how hard she tries!! Will she be able to move past Ransom and have the life she envisions with Tucker or has she gone past the point of no return with her marriage? Can it survive? Or will the lust she feel for Ransom cloud her judgment and destroy her marriage?? You'll need to read Tryst to find out!! 4 hot stars on this one!!!

My Thoughts This is one of those books that has me torn, on one hand I wanted to hate it but I couldn’t, I really enjoyed it. The story starts with Heidi and Tucker talking about a “Hall Pass” and their relationship. These are two people who are deeply in love, but want something different sexually. Heidi gets the chance to meet/work with one of the guys on her “Hall Pass” list and the story evolves from there. They act on her fantasies the first time that her and Tucker meet Ransom. It all happened so fast, but was so hot you will need an industrial fan. From that moment on there is a strained dynamic between Heidi and Tucker and an even weirder one with Ransom. This is where the book really had me torn. She loved her husband so much that she wanted to do anything to save her marriage, even though it was both of their decisions to go through with it. And at the same time any time she was with Ransom there was off the charts chemistry and sexual tension. She was so torn between what her body craved and what her heart wanted that it was almost painful to read. You were right there feeling what she was feeling and just as confused about it all. At times you wanted to hate Tucker for being safe and reliable, and at times you wanted to hate Ransom for being sex personified and the embodiment of all her fantasies. So she turns to Justice Drake, yes that Justice Drake, to help her client and her marriage. Each couple was unique and each catered to a different facet of the others, but together this group has potential together, but can they all deal with this type of relationship? It is fine having these fantasies but when they turn into a reality? This was the major struggle through the entire book, and one that through the writing were able to connect to each character, even if this is not your normal type of book, that makes it a fantastic read. There were major twists in the end that made you see the entire book in a whole new light and with them it made me like this story even more. A review copy was provided by Edelweiss for an honest review.

SL Jennings took a scenario that may (or may not) have crept into a few couple’s fantasies. But it’s just that a fantasy…right? Well, not for Tucker and Heidi. Heidi has the “list,” you know the one with the “free pass”, but low and behold, - she meets one of the men on her list, and for just one night the fantasy comes true. Tucker – the man who has brought Heidi back from lowest moment in her life is the best husband out there… He loves her with all his heart; he just wants her to be happy. But in one certain part of their life, he’s unable to fulfill her needs. “Tucker is…a goddamn walking mind fuck draped in a Brooks Brothers suit and Tom Ford readers…” In comes Ransom, the quintessential rock star. He’s out of control and in need of a publicist. There is only one person fit for this job, Heidi. Heidi – the high powered publicist who was the only one who could save the reputation of Justice Drake. She talks no prisoners. She’s a strong, fierce woman who made me smile and laugh out load a few times. “…I am used to dealing with assholes…Hello, Justice Drake anyone?” Tucker and Heidi meet, and the sparks immediately fly. Tucker feel the electricity and encourages Heidi’s ultimate fantasy to come true. But will one night be enough? Has her one night fantasy helped her marriage or ruined it? Who but Justice Drake is the man to help this marriage heal. The expert that is Justice ”to the rescue.” Tucker, Ransom, and Heidi head to Oasis to get Ransom out of the public eye while trying to repair Heidi and Tucker's marriage. While there they begin to see that the one night wasn’t enough, but how far can they or should they go? Holy crap this book is HOT! On fire, burning, inferno HOT! But it's not just the hotness, the storyline is unique and grabbed me, and I couldn't stop. There are a few twists and turns I was blown away when reading. I fell asleep reading and began reading the moment I woke up, read during 1/2 time at my daughter’s soccer game and I then encouraged my kids to play on the playground even longer than they wanted to...I HAD to finish this book, and SL Jennings did not disappoint!

    At first glance, I thought this would be a very sexy read, full of forbidden scenes and plenty of voyeurism and erotica. But what floored me most was that this book was that and so much more. I was so pleasantly surprised at how this story-line unfolded and thrilled at how the author weaved this tale. I loved watching as Heidi and her hard-as-nails persona, completely disappear when thoughts of Ransom filled her mind. From that very first passionate encounter, the woman was a goner.

But what floored me most was that this book was that and so much more. I was so pleasantly surprised at how this story-line unfolded and thrilled at how the author weaved this tale. I loved watching as Heidi and her hard-as-nails persona, completely disappear when thoughts of Ransom filled her mind. From that very first passionate encounter, the woman was a goner. And rightfully so. Right along with Tucker, I was both mesmerized and turned-on at the scene they all participated in. Again, I thought this book would have just been a series of trysts between the trio. But what struck me the most is how we get to witness first-hand just how broken Ransom truly is and the curse (if you will) of being a hot rockstar and exceptional in the bedroom His life is spiraling downward and Heidi, very surprisingly, becomes his reason for wanting to be better. Heidi's all-consuming dilemma into wanting to stay with her 'perfect' husband and in the meantime, never feeling what she does, every time Ransom is near was quite the roller-coaster ride. I could feel her being pulled in two different directions. She wanted more. She needed more. And Ransom fit the bill. But then she would remember just how wonderful Tucker is to her, accepting of her crazy publicist life and not wanting to hurt him. All is laid out so damn well and the author wrote it beautifully. The huge twist in the story caught me completely off-guard and oh yeah, I gasped loudly at that one!! I found this book to flow seamlessly, and it held me captive until the very end. I honestly didn't know how it would turn out or who Heidi would ultimately end up with but I will say I was both torn and happy at the result. The author very cleverly ends this story with the beginnings of what I hope is more from these characters..even bringing in one forgotten person from Taint. The cameos by Justice were the perfect compliment to this book and gave Heidi that often-needed reality check. A great book that I devoured happily. Huge 5 stars!!!

    I've been stewing on my review for a few days. This book literally kept me up at night and had me even dreaming about it, because the subject matter really got to me. If you are happily married to a decent and wonderful man, but the sex isn't all you hope for, would you put that all into jeopardy to have a fling with someone on your "hall-pass" list? What if that someone rocked your world and gave you the best sex of your life? Would you still take that chance? This book is the definition of the I've been stewing on my review for a few days. This book literally kept me up at night and had me even dreaming about it, because the subject matter really got to me. If you are happily married to a decent and wonderful man, but the sex isn't all you hope for, would you put that all into jeopardy to have a fling with someone on your "hall-pass" list? What if that someone rocked your world and gave you the best sex of your life? Would you still take that chance? This book is the definition of the old saying "be careful what you wish for". I could relate to Heidi in some ways, she came across as sympathetic because of all she had gone through in the past. She seems put together on the outside, but that does not always match her inside. And at times I found her selfishness and immaturity off putting. But, her life is good, she has a great but demanding job, a great home, a husband who thinks she hung the moon and status. Why is she unhappy? She loves her husband, that is very clear, so why does she choose to give into temptation with Ransom Reed? Why does her husband Tucker feel the need to take the chance and give her permission to cheat? Tucker was the real puzzle here, and by the end of the book I still feel I don't really know this character, I can't say that I really like him. This book is so much more than what it seems. Nothing is cut and dry, it's not black or white...it's a very grey. I found myself talking to these characters and wishing they would just stop and look at what they are doing, it was like watching a train wreck. And then there was a major twist that completely threw me, but, I'm glad it ended the way it did. I think the characters end up where they were supposed to be all along, a little battered and broken yes...but, wiser. This book is well written and paced appropriately, I never felt it was in too big a hurry, nor did it lag. Definitely a page turner from start to finish. Interesting plot and characters that I won't soon forget.

    **DEBBIE'S REVIEW** Let me start off by saying the synopsis doesn’t even begin to explain how crazy this plot is. Reading this book I had no clue what was going to happen and the author threw one hell of a plot twist I never saw coming. I had a hard time feeling sorry for Heidi. I mean a majority of the shit that happened to her she deserved. I get that after being married for 10 years you need to liven things up but some things she did was just unforgivable. I felt really bad for Ransom. I felt l **DEBBIE'S REVIEW** Let me start off by saying the synopsis doesn’t even begin to explain how crazy this plot is. Reading this book I had no clue what was going to happen and the author threw one hell of a plot twist I never saw coming. I had a hard time feeling sorry for Heidi. I mean a majority of the shit that happened to her she deserved. I get that after being married for 10 years you need to liven things up but some things she did was just unforgivable. I felt really bad for Ransom. I felt like he was used as a pawn in a sick game that Heidi and her husband Tucker were playing. “Honestly, sex between us had become a weekly chore that we just wanted to “Get over with” to release the pressure. And while it’s still good, it has become much like the rest of our life- predictable.” I felt the book flowed perfectly and I did not want the book to end. I just had a hard time understanding how Tucker could be ok with what was going on and not lose it. I had mixed feelings about Tucker too. Sometimes I felt bad for him and other times I wanted to smack him upside the head for letting things happen and not standing up for himself. “He wanted this. He asked for this, just as much as I did. And now he’s looking at me like he just caught me cheating on him.” The secondary characters added the perfect layer to this story and the way it ended I am hoping the author is going to write a second book. I feel like I didn’t get closure. “We came, we saw, we loved, and we left. He isn’t meant to be a part of my life, and I’m not supposed to be a part of his, in any capacity, It was real. It was fun. But it wasn’t always real fun.”

There is something taboo and hot about getting that "free pass" on the celebrity you've been crushing on. When Heidi's sex life is lacking, she deals with it. She loves her husband Tucker and can't imagine her life without him. Does he satisfy her? No, but it's something she is willing to deal with. When she lands the PR gig with Ransom she's placed in the company of the man tops on her "hall pass" list. Tucker knows about the list and when the opportunity presents itself, they take it. was so digging the story. I was so pulling for Ransom the whole time. Then secrets were revealed on both sides and then the ending happened. One of the worst endings I have read recently. Not because I didn't agree with the outcome, it was just so....BAD. The epilogue didn't really give you anything either. It wasn't a cliff hanger or a HEA it just was.
