ERIN REVIEWS: Slip of the Tongue by Jessica Hawkins @jess_hawk

SLIP OF THE TONGUE by Jessica Hawkins

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.
The best word to describe this book for me is WOW! I’m a huge fan of Jessica’s work, and because I’ve grown to love her writing style, I thought I knew what to expect when I dove into her latest release. Boy was I wrong, and I love that I was! Whereas normally you can bet on a smoking hot, twisted, crazy ride of a story from this author, that’s not at all what you’re getting here. No, Slip of the Tongue is a very real, genuine, emotional tale about a woman who is slowly waking up from her perfect marriage to realize her own flaws…what they will mean for her life.

Sadie is pretty much your typical spoiled wife. She has had a doting, loving, passionate husband make her feel adored at every step of the way, so when two months ago that suddenly stopped, it was like the rug was pulled out from under her and she was left knocked out on the floor. There was no explanation, no terrible fight that was a catalyst, and no reason to assume that Nathan would want to hurt her. But he was. For two months, he was cold, the physical closeness was absent, and he was downright rude on a regular basis. Sadie seemed to be in denial, she was so sure of Nathan’s love that even at his worst she simply took it and turned the other cheek. There were definitely times when I wanted to slap both of them for how they were acting, him for being so cold and her for putting up with it. But then there was the other factor…Finn. Finn, the gorgeous neighbor who moves across the hall and tempts Sadie in every way. He’s sweet, attentive, affectionate, and of course sexy as hell, and he’s exactly what she needs. I know what you’re thinking at this point, because I was too. But things aren’t all what they seem, nothing is cut and dry, and what you expect to happen is probably not what does!

Sadie’s story may seem like something you’ve read a million times over, but I promise you it’s not. You will feel her pain, you will thoroughly enjoy the moments when her lust is unleashed, and you will truly be surprised by the turns her life takes as she wades her way through discovering who she needs to be and who her heart belongs to! Another fabulous read by Jessica Hawkins!

I’m glad I stopped for my new neighbor, though. He’s chasing off the dark clouds that’ve been hanging around lately. ~Loc 69

“You have the body of an angel,” he continues. “Or a devil, I haven’t decided.”

I shift my eyes from the painting to his profile. “Is that a compliment?”

“No,” he says, looking back at me. “It’s trouble.” ~Loc 3180

“I don’t. But if I had your love, I wouldn’t waste it like he does. He’s playing a game with you. He’ll regret pushing you away, though, when he realizes I’m here, waiting to catch you.” ~Loc 3598

My love for him isn’t supposed to hurt this much. It feels like it’s killing me from the inside, and it’s starting with my heart in a blender. I never wanted anything or anyone other than him, but he withdrew his love to hurt me, and for what? ~Loc 4900

NEW RELEASE: The Revenger by @Debra_Anastasia

The real hero of this story is dead. You should have met him. He was a beautiful man. The love of my life. I didn’t deserve him.

Now what’s left are the jagged edges of the person I am without him, and what I have to do to get by. This isn’t even a story about love. Not really. It’s a twisted tale of revenge and hate—a happily never after.

The only man in my life now is the one I have to kill.
I’m Savvy Raine.
I used to be a wife.
I used to be a mother.
Now I am the Revenger.

Excerpt #2

There was very little chatter after the alarming phone call. Savvy looked at the clock. It was only five, but the extra help Tallow had enlisted acted like she was about to disintegrate. When they were finally done, they hung Savvy’s costume from a door, fully expecting her to drop trou in front of all the strangers.
She looked at the silver outfit meant to demean her and classify her as his, just like all his other favorites.
“Yeah, I’m not actually going to be wearing that.” She looked from one shocked person to the other.
Tallow recovered first. “But this is what he told you to wear!”
Savvy laughed hollowly. “Yeah, he can suck his own d*ck for all I care.”
The atmosphere changed. The others now realized Savvy didn’t think it was a huge honor to be a f*ckhole.
“That’s not acceptable. I’ll put you in it myself if I have to, but you’re leaving here in that outfit.” Tallow bravely gathered up the skirt and came into Savvy’s personal space. He obviously thought she was just a regular girl.
In an instant she’d lifted Tallow into the air by his neck. “I’m not wearing it.” She stared him down until he began to turn blue. Then she set him back on his feet.
Tallow was a quick learner and smoothed his fancy shirt. “Okay then, let me see what else we have.”

Puchase here!

Last Call Ebook
Once Rose Fisher makes a decision, that’s it. End of story.
Like when her ex, Patrick, dumped her out of the blue, then showed up with a super hot, tatted up sex kitten on his arm. Then it was over for good. The end. Poof. Dead to her. Except he was everywhere — down the hall, at the bar with their friends, worming his way into her dreams.
But with their friends paired off, they’re left alone more and more. Rose is determined to keep him friendzoned — doesn’t matter that he stares at her with a smolder that drops all panties in a ten foot radius. She’s over him, and she’ll prove it by getting back into the dating game, Patrick be damned.
Patrick Evans is no stranger to consequences. When your mother walks out, your dad drifts away. When you leave home, you’re on your own. And when you run away from the girl you love, you lose her. He finally has an opportunity to rebuild the bridge he burned, and it’s not one he’ll take for granted. But he’ll have to fight for her, even if it hurts. Even if it means he’ll walk away brokenhearted. Because deep down, he knows that she’s it for him.
The trick will be to get her to admit she feels it too.

About the Author
Staci has been a lot of things up to this point in her life -- a graphic designer, an entrepreneur, a seamstress, a clothing and handbag designer, a waitress. Can't forget that. She's also been a mom; she has three little girls who are sure to grow up to break a number of hearts. She's been a wife; even though she's certainly not the cleanest, or the best cook. She's also super, duper fun at a party, especially if she's been drinking whiskey. Her favorite word starts with f and ends with k.
From roots in Houston, to a seven year stint in Southern California, Staci and her family ended up settling somewhere in between and equally north, in Denver. They are new enough that snow is still magical. When she's not writing, she's sleeping, gaming, or designing graphics.
