GoodReads Synopsis: 
Heidi DuCane is a tough-as-nails publicist with a passion for success and her husband Tucker. While they’re polar opposites, what they do have in common is a fierce love and commitment to each other. But their relationship—in and out of the bedroom—will be put to the ultimate test.

Rock superstar Ransom Reed is every woman’s fantasy, including Heidi’s. When she meets Ransom, she shares a wild night with him where Heidi gets to play—and Tucker watches, and enjoys, the pleasure Ransom gives Heidi. Though Tucker was a willing participant, Heidi still can’t help reeling with guilt. There’s no doubt that she loves her husband. While Tucker is the perfect lover—generous, attentive and gentle—she needs much more. She needs the mind-blowing ecstasy Ransom offers.
Tucker isn’t blind to the fact that Heidi has unconventional needs which he can’t satisfy. He loves his wife and will do anything to please her The night he watched her and Ransom was so scorching hot that 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.
Oh, this book. As soon as I finished Taint, I knew that I had to read Tryst once it was available. Taint was a great story so I couldn't wait to sink my teeth into this one.  And it didn't disappoint.

Tryst took me on a rollercoaster ride of emotions. I was super excited at the prospect of Heidi and her husband experimenting with Ransom because I haven't read many threesome (or partners watching) scenarios in books and I couldn't wait to see how it was going to play out. That particular scene in the book was amazing although I always felt uncomfortable towards Tucker. There was just something about him that I didn't care for. Ransom, however, I always had a soft spot for. Maybe it was his bad boy rocker persona that attracted, who knows.

As the story continued to unfold I found myself constantly confused. I didn't like what Heidi was doing and it made me uncomfortable for the sake of her marriage and her husband, but at the same time, I liked the idea of her being with Ransom. As they got closer and closer, my heart continued to break for each of the three characters and I couldn't decide who I felt more devoted to. I still felt off about Tucker throughout the whole story, but that didn't mean I couldn't feel bad for him. I just wanted him to suck it up and tell his wife exactly what he wanted from her.

I was really happy to see that Justice and his Oasis was pulled into this story. It fit really well and brought up some of the hottest scenes in the entire story. His playroom was definitely something I would enjoy witnessing in real life.

Closer to the end of the book I found myself completely thrown for a loop. There was such an insane turn of events that I couldn't believe what I was reading. It was interesting, definitely, but I can't say that I was entirely sold on the ending. It worked in the way of not necessarily being a happily ever after (at least for the two characters I wanted to be together) and for giving the readers something a little unexpected, but heart still broke a little for how I wanted the story to end in my head.

Overall, a great, sexy read. If you've read Taint, you definitely need to dive into Tryst.
