TEAR YOU APART by Megan Hart

Available now from Harlequin MIRA.Tear-You-Apart

From the Publisher:

“I’m on a train.
I don’t know which stop I got on at; I only know the train is going fast and the world outside becomes a blur. I should get off, but I don’t. The universe is playing a cosmic joke on me. Here I had my life-a good life with everything a woman could want-and suddenly, there is something more I didn’t know I could have. A chance for me to be satisfied and content and maybe even on occasion deliriously, amazingly, exuberantly happy.

So this is where I am, on a train that’s out of control, and I am not just a passenger. I’m the one shoveling the furnace full of coal to keep it going fast and faster.

If I could make myself believe it all happened by chance and I couldn’t help it, that I’ve been swept away, that it’s not my fault, that it’s fate…would that be easier? The truth is, I didn’t know I was looking for this until I found Will, but I must’ve been, all this time. And now it is not random, it is not fate, it is not being swept away.

This is my choice. And I don’t know how to stop.

Or even if I want to.”

**author’s note: Tear You Apart is NOT a romance.

From the Nice Girls Don’t Read Naughty Books book blog review:

“Narrator Karen White, really brought this story to life.  It take a truly talented narrator to bring voice to the emotional roller coaster that is a Megan Hart book.  She created distinct voices for each of the characters, so much that I tend to forget she is reading all of the parts.  I will absolutely pick up books narrated by her in the future!”
 My recording experience:

I think the author’s note on this is particularly apt.  Hart does say at the beginning of the book “This is a love story” and I do believe it’s a story about love, but it’s for sure the messy side of love.  Expect no HEAs here.  As an actor, I loved this book.  Written in the first person, it took me on quite the emotional roller coaster.  As a woman, I appreciated the examinations of the moral dilemmas one faces as a wife and mother: whose happiness comes first? being one of the major questions.  And as a reader, I loved the beautiful and precise imagery, and how the main character’s synesthesia fed into the poetry of the writing.  Not a fun or light book, but definitely a great ride (pun intended?! it IS erotic) if you’re up for it.
