Review: Slip of The Tongue by Jessica Hawkins

Monday, September 26, 2016

Sadie Hunt isn’t perfect—but her husband is. Nathan Hunt has her coffee waiting every morning. He holds her hand until the last second. He worships the Manhattan sidewalk she walks on. Until one day, he just…stops. And Sadie finds herself in the last place she ever expected to be. Lonely in her marriage.
When rugged and sexy Finn Cohen moves into the apartment across the hall, he and Sadie share an immediate spark. Finn reveals dreams for a different life. Sadie wants to save her marriage. Their secrets should keep them apart, not ignite a blistering affair. But while Sadie’s marriage runs colder by the day, she and Finn burn hotter.
Her husband doesn’t want her anymore.
The man next door would give up everything to have her.
Slip of the Tongue is a standalone contemporary romance. The second book in the series, The First Taste, is a standalone about a different couple.
My Review
Talk about a big 'bang'. If I could rate this book ten stars, I probably would. Slip Of The Tongue was one of those books that made me feel like there was a big knot in my throat I couldn't force down. My skin would warm up- kind of like it would if I were watching two people argue in front of me yet hoping there would be some light at the end of the tunnel soon.

"Only I could love you this much"

I felt like I could combust one second or another. So. Many. Feelings. With these kind of books, the reader usually finds themselves rooting for person a or person b. Even though at times it was kind of hard for me to really think about what I wanted to happen in the end, it succeeded all my expectations . I couldn't sleep after I started this book. I couldn't close my eyes and go to sleep without knowing what was going to happen and when and how and oh my god. It was crazy, it made me crazy. Although it gave me a bit of an uneasy feeling sometimes, it left me floating happily into my HEA- after all these characters were put through, let's just say they deserved it.

You’re what I want. You can close off your heart,
                   but don’t forget—I know how to tear you open.

Slip Of The Tongue was a heartbreaking yet absolutely beautiful story. Filled with questions, doubt and so much love. Incredible. Ten stars and a freaking BRAVO, Jessica Hawkins.
