    One thought on “The Space Between Us”

    1. All of you guys who read Megan Hart's books can already guess what's waiting for you in her new novel, The Space Between Us. This woman gave the whole new meaning to erotic romance genre. Unlike lot of books in this category, main focus is on the story behind the sex - don't get me wrong, this woman knows how to write hot scenes that will leave you panting. Her books could be good example for difference between pornography and erotica in literature - first is purely graphical with the sole purpo [...]

    2. Is Megan Hart the Thomas Hardy of erotic fiction? I think she may be – she’s busy heaping more misery on miserable people with miserable lives. I do quite like it though – I really enjoy some angst in the books I read and I especially like the characters to suffer and suffer they truly do.We have Tesla coasting along in life working as a barista. She doesn’t appear to have any ambitions and is happy just to keep bumping along the way she is. This makes her sound humdrum but she is anythi [...]

    3. I think Megan Hart is an excellent erotic story teller. I have read Broken, Dirty, Tempted and Stranger and pretty much loved each book. She challenges me as a reader and makes me stretch my boundaries. Her endings are rocky HEA’s at best (although that is one of the things I love about her books), and the ending of The Space Between Us to me is very sad. The prologue of the book is actually the end (we go back a few months in chapter one.) The final ending does have another small chapter, but [...]

    4. In a genre that seems to be becoming heavily focused on specific kinks, Hart's erotica is notable for covering a wide range of human sexuality and emotion. Our narrator here is coffee shop employee Tesla, someone whose co-workers and customers think of as sexually adventurous, "wild," a characterization which makes her somewhat uncomfortable. Although her background is unconventional and her sexual preferences varied, she just feels ordinary, like herself. "I'm not a straight girl. I'm not a que [...]

    5. Tesla lives in a basement of her friends Vic and Elain. She is working a seemingly dead end job as a coffee barista. Seen as a wild child, Tesla is actually quite sedate. She doesn't want to stick out and is happily living one day at a time.Telsa's life is complicated with relationships that are not within the norm. While she did have two parents and one brother, it wasn't a conventional family. They spent summers at a hippie commune where her parents were swinging. Telsa's sexual education and [...]

    6. Initial reaction:Megan Hart's "The Space Between Us" is a story of exploration of a young woman with a damaged history trying to find a place/space to feel loved. There are many paths that she takes in the path of that, but ultimately, Tesla's journey takes her full circle to find the relationship she ultimately wants, and it's more that she knows what she wants, but doesn't know how to assert it.I liked the story arc well enough and understood the journey as far as how it transpired, but I'll a [...]

    7. Rating: B- Heat: HotThe 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 tha [...]

    9. Now this was the Megan Hart I know and love! She is a freaking magician. When I read her books, usually I want to make up literary awards, and give them to her. This book proved once again that picking up my first Megan Hart book was one of the best decisions regarding reading I ever made.Even before I started it, I had a very strong feeling I would love it. The combination of that cover, title, and author made me lust after it as soon as I saw it. It wasn't until I was holding the book in my ha [...]

    10. "Everyone has a story""Stories end, but life doesn’t. Not just because you lose the person you love. Life keeps going. You might cry yourself to sleep every night and wake up in the morning still weeping, but life moves forward in seconds that turn to minutes, minutes to hours, hours to days."Only Megan Hart can "make me" read books that deal with themes with which I'm not comfortable with or with which I have, let's say, issues or prejudices in a way and to make me actually like them. And why [...]

    11. I just couldn't put this book down! Megan has an amazing knack for writing the most wonderfully broken characters. They are so real, that they almost leap off the page. I also love how she let's the readers uncover bits and pieces of the characters past, like revealing layers of an onion.While this book might not be everyone's cup of tea, I totally loved it. It was smart, funny, and sexy as hell!

    13. Rating: B+ 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 [...]

    14. 3.75 starsThis review was posted at Under the CoversThe wait between when we get a novel from Megan Hart is terrible for me, so when I saw that she was releasing this book I did my "hell-yeah-we-are-getting-a-MH-book" happy dance. Quite frankly, I hardly ever read the blurbs and I stay away from any spoilers or excerpts because I want the book to speak to me. Megan Hart's writing is one of those rare voices that can tell a a sad and oftentimes hard story beautifully. It sucks you in and grabs yo [...]

    15. ARC provided by Harlequin and Netgalley. Thank you!A caveat: I'm a rabid, unashamed Megan Hart fan. I've read seven books by her, including this one, and while they haven't all been great, I've found that (for me at least) Hart consistently churns out interesting and intriguing books that turn me into a happy, emotional wreck.The Space Between Us follows Tesla Martin, a 26-year-old Barista who works at Morningstar Mocha (a coffee shop that's been featured in at least one other Hart novel). She a [...]

    16. Tesla Martin is not really sure what she’s doing with her life, but she’s not exactly in a hurry to figure it out either. She works at Morningstar Mocha as everyone’s favorite barista while living with the man (and his wife and two adorable kids) who took her and her brother in when her parents decided their lives were more important than that of their children. Tesla enjoys the customer interaction and the constant stream of caffeine. However, there is one regular in particular that she w [...]

    17. This was my very first Megan Hart book and honestly it was too much for me emotionally, beautifully written, but, tough to read becaus of the emotions involved, the book made me extremly uncomfortable and feeling ill everytime I read another chunk of it. I liked Tesla very much, liked Vic, like most have said really was angry with the self-centerness and shallowness of Meredith. She made me think of some females I know who are gorgeous and seem to have the perfect life, but, there's nothing behi [...]

    18. The Space Between Us tells the story of Tesla, a 20 something barista facing a tempting offer. Her female crush, Meredith, suggest a a daring experiment including her husband Charlie and Tesla. How can Tesla resist? A chance to get nearer to Meredith , who knows what might happen next. It sounds like an easy choice but nothing in life is as easy as it seems at first glance. An uncomplicated and liberal engagement can turn into something serious and strict very quick and so Tesla finds herself in [...]

    19. 3.5 stars. Huh. This was the first erotica book that I read. I found it thought-provoking and sad, both of which I didn't expect to find in an erotica story. I'm not sure why I picked this one up. Maybe it's because it discusses menage and female bisexuality. Maybe because I'm so sick of YA books where the heroine falls in love instantly after a few electric touches with the hero and gazing into his beautiful eyes. Maybe it's because I'm older now and I know that love is messy and difficult and [...]

    20. *This book was provided to the reviewer by the author in exchange for an honest review at SeductiveMusingsI 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 wea [...]

    21. What can I say that has not already been said about anything Megan Hart writes? She is a fantastic story teller. Her characters are always interesting and a few of them you just never forget. (Alex Kennedy stole my heart in Tempted, then again in Naked)The book starts with the ending of the story, howeverThis story centers about Tesla who works at a coffee shop and Meredith, a customer who comes in daily. Meredith is very charismatic and spends much of her time asking the regular customers as we [...]

    22. I liked this onea lot. Like, really a lot - but I can't really tell you why. It isn't one of those books that leaves you with the warm and fuzzies. Quite the opposite, in fact. When I first saw this book and the blurb on Netgalley, I wanted it. Badly. I mean, threesomes and bisexualityhello! And I was so excited when I got a galley to read -- but it wasn't the quick-read tingly erotica that I thought I was going to get. There was so much more to the story than I could have possibly imagined.Lets [...]

    23. I loved Tesla right from the start, she seems to be a free spirit, one who marches to the beat of her own drummer. I liked how she was there for her friends and family, how she has built a new family for herself when her blood one imploded. At first I started out liking that Tesla found a new friend in Meredith, and how she was able to pull out stories of Tesla's past. It was in those stories that we get to know her better and you realize how those past events have had such a big impact on her l [...]

    24. 4 Solid StarsI am a huge fan of Megan Hart's writing style. She has a way of making the characters come to life and has a way of making their flaws believable and many times enduring. Her books are gritty and real. Ms. Hart has the ability to take a heroine that is flawed, and who many would be quick to judge and condemn, and turn it all around and make her extremely likeable (and a true heroine). The Space Between Us jumped around quite a bit plot and character wise, so I had to be sure to pay [...]

    25. This was the first book of Megan Hart that I have read and for that reason only I gave this four stars. Her characters in this book are both flawed and real. I loved Tesla - the girl brought up in an alternative lifestyle but who herself thought was not wild. She was so totally honest with herself and others in this book as to how she viewed life you could not help but fall in love with her. Meredith is the beautiful bored woman so many of us probably know. Others get caught in her web only to f [...]

    26. Loved it -duh! . But I was hoping more steam and angst . The ending was a bit rushed , too . However , I'm a big fan of Mrs. Hart and she didin't dessapointed me at all . P.S. (view spoiler)[/ This book contains appareances from Sadie&Joe (Broken ) and Johnny D.(Collide) . (No JACK this time) (hide spoiler)]

    27. Megan Hart never fucking fails to amaze me!!! This is just another example of the crazy talent she has. The sex scenes are steamy as hell, the story is deep and really makes you feel like you're in the bookI felt like I was Tesla, feeling every emotion during this story. The ending isn't what you expect, but to me it couldn't have been better!! I couldn't put this down and it def deserves a spot on my "crack books" shelf!

    28. Megan Hart is one of my favorite authors. Yes, there are x-rated scenes but the story and the characters are always compelling. The stories are completely unique with damaged characters who usually come out with some emotional healing by the end of the story.

    29. Another great book by Megan Hart. This author writes deep, emotional stories with passion at the center. And she does it really well. The characters feel authentic and come to life on the page. I got really wrapped up in the story and their lives. This plot centers around Tesla and her kinky fun-time ménage, turned love affair, with Meredith and her husband, Charlie. It's a sexy, beautiful and sometimes heartbreaking story of the dance between three people, trying to fit together. There are MF, [...]
