Ke the story for what it chooses to showcase on its ownThis little short also explains why Alex has the Hello Kitty pajama bottoms in the first place I always thought that was a cute uirk to remember him by but if you read about how they were given to him it wasn t in good context Alex has commitment issues and it s complicated by the relationships he s had here That overarching theme is something that s explored in Tempted this story and Naked But even further Alex finds himself the third wheel in the relationship here and that s something I noted was a parallel with respect to another work of Hart s The Space Between UsOverall I liked this story as a bridge between the two full novels and how it gave me a chance to learn about Alex Kennedy s character though I wonder how this would ve fared if incorporated into the events of Tempted rather than as a stand aloneOverall score 35 stars Solid 3 Stars Everything Changes is Alex s POV of Tempted This novella gives some insight into Alex s character who is bisexual and his psyche during his summer fling with his best friend James heterosexual friend he s been in love with for years and James wife Anne he fell in love with her in Tempted I loved Alex in Tempted and though his character is riddled with arrogance and flaws there s also a vulnerability that not only was endearing but broke my heart too He ust wanted to be loved and accepted for being himself I also gained a little respect for his character too I was glad he stayed strong at the end of the book and didn t allow James to ruin their friendship which meant everything to him because of James own lack of self awareness and stupidity In Tempted I never cared for James Alex s best friend and Anne s husband After reading this novella I can honestly say I hate his character He is selfish careless spineless and oblivious He doesn t know who he is or what he wants Actually that s not true He wants to dabble in the forbidden without acknowledging his sexuality he s straight or suffer the damaging and long lasting conseuences of adding another to his marriage bed ust to have his cake and eat it too Stupid stupid man I do believe James truely loves Anne and even Alex in his own way but his self absorption and lack of self awareness caused nothing but heartache and pain for the three of them That said both Alex and Anne agreed to the m nage relationship so they shoulder blame too After finishing this book my heart ached a little for Anne and Alex They fell in love but knew a relationship would never work because of the situation After finishing the first book and then this one it s sadly obvious Anne will never be fully and truly happy with James She knew choosing to staying with him it meant a marriage with love and they did love each other but also a marriage with complacency and monotony But don t feel too bad for her She admitted in Tempted that though she loved James she never yearned or burned for him the way she did her first love and Alex She also fully admitted that she d always withheld a portion of herself from James that she freely gave to Alex So all things considered she deserves the marriage she hasAnyway I feel this book is a must read for those who want to understand the complexities and enigma that is Alex It will help give you insight into his actions in Tempted but importantly it will help you understand him better in his own book Naked For those wondering there is no m nage what s so ever in Naked It s a good love story with a wonderful heroine Note This cover is very deceiving This book contains menage scenes not really my cuppa but no mm It was obviously used as a marketing tool and a very deceptive one at that Also this series ebooks are very expensive to buy 799 on Luckily I was able to find the ebooks at the Library I would have never read them otherwise. Before but that was a long time ago Before Jamie knew what Alex really wanted Still Alex can't resist the pleasure of being with Anne and with Jami.

A look at events that happened in Hart s Tempted from Alex s point of view Written in broad strokes without much detail and very little emotion this short piece didn t do much for me personally except to reiterate my initial thoughts about Jamie and Anne as two self centered people who use and hurt Alex to please themselves A sad story that I did not find erotic that goes for Tempted as well as Everything Changes Also note that the cover with two males on the cover is extremely misleading However I would say that this book is a must read for fans of the narrator Alex and the book Tempted Kissing someone isn t the same as being kissed It is still a kiss I know The mechanics are the same his tongue intertwines with yours you feel his breath merging with yours your lips touch yet it is different being kissed feels differentReading about Alex Anne and James from Anne s POV in Tempted wasn t the same as seeing the same story through Alex s eyes Everyting was familiar yet different I m glad that Megan Hart didn t give him this voice in Tempted It wouldn t be right He deserved his time Megan owed it to us I loved Alex in Tempted I knew from the start of their little summer fling that his time with Anne and James as the apex of a triangle was limited and doomed Yet I couldn t but hold my hand over my mouth to keep my sobs uiet when she came to say good bye and I had done that I had gone to let him go and I d done that too It was not a happy ending of the sort in fairy tales but it was the only one we had Be happy I whispered to the waterAnd he was watching her from his hotel room standing in the water It was the end and he couldn t decide if the truth had been worth telling All he knew was that it was time to go Because sometimes doing what was best for someone you loved was important than taking care of yourself Because sometimes the things that were never meant to last were what ended up mattering the mostBecause sometimes even a door that s always been open has to closeBut I m not closing the door on Alex I m seeing him in Naked soon I ust finished it and this broke my heart all over again Damn Alex Jamie and Anne This is a short story continuation from the book Tempted The one that follows Everything Changes is Naked If I would have been told this story from a different perspective I would not have given the story second thoughts I am glad I decided to read it It is a short story but if you want of the story read Tempted Megan Hart likes to connect her characters and she brings them back from time to time This story did break my heartview spoilerWhy can t they all Fix Her Up (Hot and Hammered just stay together At le June 2020Poor Alex and Anne Poor AlexNovember 2014A very condensed version of Tempted only now through Alex s eyes Warning A lot of mentioning of Tempted ahead so if you haven t read it and you re planning to you should probably not read thisEverything changes My thoughts about Tempted in particular I went into it believing it wasust the first part of the story about Anne Alex and Jamie This definitely fooled me so Tempted didn t have a an impact on me as it would have had had I known Tempted was all Anne Alex and Jamie would get Reading some of the scenes from that book again now from Alex s perspective made that perfectly clearMy expectations and hopes those three would make it work are long gone I m over it Alex found his place with someone else and I m happy for him After everything that happened in Tempted Everything Changes and everything that happened to him before it was long due I still do kind of wish Anne had dumped Jamie s sorry ass and went with Alex but that s because I ve grown to like Alex even after Everything Changes and Jamie if I didn t dislike him before I do now I used to think he was bi at least when it came to Alex but too much of a douche to admit it but now I th. In Tempted Anne gave in to her passion for both her husband James and his friend Alex Now it's time for Alex's side of the storyWhen Jamie tells Ale.
Ink he s of a spoiled brat his mother s golden boy who couldn t stand his best friend was spending time screwing other men and not making the moves on him because how could anyone not want him I don t understand anything about his actions not now not ever He was toying with both his marriage and friendship with Alex Idiot My heart broke for Alex but he s better off without them Well without Jamie and his mother at least Also no matter how much I like the cover it s misleading the three main characters did share a bed but Alex and Jamie never touched like that or at all for that matter And what little intimacy Alex and Jamie shared here was I don t even know what it was I The Wedding Band (Save the Date, just blamed it on Jamie s stupidityAlex is a dear character to me and I ve enjoyed reading about him through the perspective of two different women who have loved him This was good too but not nearly enough to satisfy my curiosity To be honest it didn t provide much information about Alex s character Even after this he still has an air of mystery surrounding him It was nice seeing some past scenes through his eyes and some new ones ones that didn t involve Anne but my favorite is the last one for now I knew it really was the last one I veust finished this and have to confess that this story has left me speechless that s really the only way to describe the intensity of the emotion that pours through these pages Anyone who s read Tempted will know the story of Anne Jamie and Alex this is their story told by Alex If your read Tempted and loved it you have to read this Once again the story told in Tempted has come back with full force and and my heart is breaking for all of them What a fabulous follow up to Tempted Tempted was one the most real books I have read in a long time A real look into why the fantasy of a third person in a relationship should stay Chinas Search for Democracy just that a fantasy This short story was Alex s point of view and it was very insightful I love Alex and this story gave you a little better view into Alex s head I cannot wait to start Naked bring on Alex WARNINGS Homophobicbiphobic slursview spoilerSPOILER The only rule was that Alex wouldn t fuck Anne So what happens She goes to his hotel and he fucks her The one thing Jamie said not to do they did Anne may not have known the rule but Alex did Disrespectful hide spoiler 25 starsThisust didn t really add anything to the story a story I enjoyed It didn t feel like a true alternate POV Onwards to the next book hoping to read of Alex Initial reaction Ahh this is one of those times when I wish a companion short story would ve been incorporated into a main novel because it clarified a few things but not nearly enough It manages to stand on its own to a degree This short storynovella was penned from Alex Kennedy s perspective during the events of Megan Hart s erotic novel Tempted I appreciated the eye of insight from Alex s perspective and the steamy scenes were well written but in the end for me it still felt like a few things were missing development wiseI m content to have this as a bridge to Hart s follow up novel Naked thoughFull reviewI still can t believe I read this almost four years ago and still haven t written a full review on it but nonetheless that s getting remedied right now I did like Everything Changes not Imaginary Citizens just the first time I read it but in re reading it for the present year I liked following Alex Kennedy for the most part in Tempted and this short this book actually takes place during pertinent times when he s in a relationship with Jamie and his wife Anne If anything Megan Hart does a greatob with establishing character intimacy whether it s sensuality or ust getting an idea of whom the character is in their mindset and life This short story does a little bit of retracing through events in Tempted but it doesn t overwhelm or overta.
