While Tucker is the perfect lover-generous, attentive and gentle-she needs much more. She needs the mind-blowing ecstasy Ransom offers.

He loves his wife and will do anything to please her The night he watched her and Ransom was so scorching hot amnd Tucker can’t stop thinking about it. He decides he wants to join Ransom in pleasing Heidi. But as Tucker and Heidi soon realize, it’s not just the sex that is enticing. Heidi felt something within her awaken, and she felt so deliciously sated and loved by both men. Tucker felt it too, and he finds it impossible not to want that feeling again.

Ransom and Tucker satisfy a need within Heidi. And now that she’s had them, she can never go back to the way things were before.

Review by: Gina 

I'm still a little baffled on how I should feel about this book. I guess for the fact that I am still thinking about it should say something. There were somethings that the characters were involved with that I didn't agree with but it's a book and the characters knew what they were doing so I can't hold it against them or the author. 

I had a hard time putting the books down. I NEEDED to know what was going to happen. There were several twists and turns and the biggest coming at the end. It made me question everything that I thought I new about the characters and I think that's what confuses me the most. I don't know how I should feel about these characters. I want to like them but with all the manipulation, I don't feel I could trust them. Heidi I did get a little annoyed with her debating between right and wrong, she went back and forth a lot. Tucker threw me for the biggest loop and Ransom just seemed to be the guy who was there at the right time and right moment. 

Overall, the story was written well. I thought the characters were complex and the story line was complex and how everything came together at the end, seem to fit. After reading the book I feel like I got something that was different than the synopsis. Is that a good thing or a bad thing...I don't know yet. There were several really hot scenes that did not disappoint. While this book contains a subject matter other might not agree with I would recommend it if you are looking for a book that is hot, with complex characters and when you get to the end it makes you think "what the hell just happened?".

Review by: Kim 

Tucker and Heidi have been married for a decade. And most of the time it's wonderful. Tucker is head over heels in love with his wife. Tries to put her first in everything except for his job.
Heidi has a bad scary thing in her past and Tucker has helped her heal. More than that though, Tucker is a great husband. He's everything to her and she can't begin to imagine her life without him in it.

Then one crazy night things get complicated. More complicated than she could have ever imagined.
As she begins to spiral into a never ending cycle of regret, guilt and shame, Heidi is helpless to stop the all consuming lust that begins to more than control her.

Ransom Reed is a Rock God. And more than that...He is Heidi's fantasy come to life.

Out of desperation Heidi calls the one person she knows may make her life more difficult, but he'd never refuse to help her.
As the puzzle begins to unravel, Heidi discovers that Tucker may not be all he professes to be. And soon her world crashes around her in a way that she never could have predicted.

I love this author. Her stories are always steamy and always thought provoking, and she always gives us characters that we can fall in love with.

However, I have always considered myself a forward thinking woman and believe that what a couple does together for their pleasure isn't anyone's business but their own. I really did like this book, but there was a moment that I found distasteful and because of that I just can't give this book my whole heart-ed approval.

Review by: Cristina 

The synopsis caught my eye and intrigued my curiosity. As I started reading I was liking the idea of living out a fantasy that circled around on a list of celebrities where a person had a free pass to sleep with without any repercussions. In this story it had entailed the before, during, and the after effects of that one encounter that would change everything between Wife and publicist Heidi DuCane, husband and psychologist Tucker DuCane, and rock superstar, Ransom Reed. 

This is the first book I have read by this author and it was one that was 3.5 stars for me. Although the steamy scenes would catch anyone’s attention I was not fully grasping the connection between Heidi, Tucker, and Ransom that I was looking for. I did though get a brief intense reaction when the shocking point of the story was revealed.

Review by: Sam 

I have been so torn with reviewing this book. After reading all of S.L Jennings other books and loving them whole heartedly, I knew I had to dive into book two 'Tryst' of the Sexual Education series. I adored book one, 'Taint' and Justice became one of my top book boyfriends. I gripped that story so hard and didn't want to let go. 
In this story, we get a fierce triangle of lust, love, right and wrong between Heidi, Tucker and Ransom. 

I actually really enjoyed Heidi's character. I like her attitude, her independence and the passion she brought to each situation she was put in. People respect her success, and she absolutely knows it. I understood how torn she was, I loved the connection she had to certain characters.
I disliked Tucker in every way possible. For me, he was this puppet master of assholery and when secrets were revealed, I kindly wanted to climb in through my kindle and clock him, in the face, with a chair. My Mom told me if I do not have anything nice to say about someone, don't say anything at all. So I will just leave this here.
Ransom, I don't want to give too much away about him character because I don't want to spoil this book for anyone. I loved him. I felt for him. I wished so much for his character. I felt the torment his character portrayed. 

I enjoyed supporting characters, A LOT! 
The steamy scenes were PHENOMENAL! The story itself was pretty good! 
But that ending, DAMN! It wasn't what I was expecting at all. I couldn't wrap my head around it, I was beyond angry at the choices, the hurt, and most of all, I was so so so so angry at Tucker! And I actually wanted to throat punch Heidi for not following her heart. Because I really don't think she did. 

Overall, this isn't my favourite S.L Jennings novel. But it will not out me off reading other books she brings because her writing it excellent. I have adored all previous books, but for me, this book didn't turn out to be what I expected.

 “I dare you…to let me touch your wife.”
An audible gasp escapes my kiss-swollen lips and turn to Tucker, awaiting his wrath. He returns Ransom’s intent stare, his expression unreadable. Yet, the younger man doesn’t back down, cocking a challenging brow at Tuck’s silence. He remains unmovable, a master at the art of restraint from his years as a shrink. No doubt he’s had to answer some odd questions, but never any involving his wife.
“I don’t let Heidi do anything. She has her own mind…her own body.”
“So maybe I should be asking her.” A sinister smile on his lips, Ransom angles his focus on me. “Heidi, would you let me touch you?”
My first reaction is to say no—hell no. But Tucker quickly grasps my knee, capturing my attention.
“This is what you want,” he whispers. “He…is what you want. And I can accept that. This is your fantasy, baby. Let me help you make it come true.”
I search his face, waiting for him to break into laughter, but he’s completely serious. My husband is telling me to let another man put his hands on me—his wife. This isn’t right. This isn’t what married people are supposed to do. But even as that rational part of my brain lists all the reasons why I shouldn’t allow this to go any further, my body is already tingling with anticipation. My face and chest are flush. My nipples harden in exhilaration. And my mouth waters with the prospect of tasting Ransom’s skin.
Oh, God. I do want this. And now the decision is mine and mine alone.
“So?” Ransom asks, awaiting our fate.
Say no.
Say no.
Grab Tucker’s hand and get the fuck out of here. Go home and make love to him. Let that kind, good, gentle man be enough.
Once again, Ransom Reed steals the truth from my lips, forcing me to abandon all decency and sanity. Making me take the sanctity of my marriage and soil it with my own slick arousal.
In one single breath, I shatter ten years of devotion, trust and love. And although I know what I’m destroying by lighting this fire, I can’t do much more than stand back and watch it all go up in flames.
