Blog Tour: Slip of The Tongue by Jessica Hawkins


Slip of the Tongue BT Banner



Slip of the Tongue Cover


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 affair







Excerpt



In his dimly-lit kitchen, Finn lays a comforting hand on my shoulder. “I have to tell you something.”

My hairline prickles. I can sense whatever he says will be heavy, and I’m not sure I want to hear it. I force a crooked smile that probably looks as awkward as I feel. Since I just fed Ginger, I joke, “What? I smell like dog food?”

“I want to kiss you,” he says without missing a beat. “I won’t, but I just thought you should know.”

My stomach drops as if I’m in free fall. I bite my lip involuntarily, then release it, afraid it’ll look like an invitation. Can he really come out and say that? Without prompting, without wavering? You can want to kiss someone and not say it. Should I be angry he confessed that? I’m not. I’m curious. Stirred, even. And because we’re being honest, I ask what I want to ask. “Why?”

“Why do I want to kiss you? Or why did I tell you?”

My heart rate picks up. I lose my nerve. “The second one. That’s not the kind of thing you just come out and say to a stranger. A married stranger.”

“I like you.” He absentmindedly caresses the nape of my neck with his fingertip. “So I want to be honest.”

I put my hand over his wrist, and he stops. Now, and for the last hour, it’s as if we’re the only two people on the planet. The Bad Wife and the Stranger. If I let him kiss me, nobody would ever know. After all, Nathan might be kissing someone else too. Why else would he have lipstick on his tie? Finn doesn’t wear lipstick. Neither do I. It would be our secret.

“You’re leaving, aren’t you?” he asks.

Am I? I have to. I don’t trust myself to stay, and I don’t trust myself to speak, so I nod. I don’t have to pull his hand away. He takes it back willingly. And he walks me to his door.

That cover!
That synopsis!
Holaaaaaaaay!

This is the first book that I've read by Jessica Hawkins and although I had a love/hate relationship with the characters throughout the entire book I cannot wait to read more of her work. An author that can bring out all these emotions in ME has to be stellar! I have a black soul... heart... err... something like that. lol

Slip of the Tongue was certainly a different take on the ol love triangle, being that we got to know all parties involved, really know them! This story made me happy, sad, angry, pissed off beyond belief, confused and the angst drove me insane! INSANE! I've never wanted to hug, console and bitch slap characters so much in my life.
Whiplash!
My feelings changing from chapter to chapter. AAAAAAAAAAAAH!!!!!

The first 20ish % of the book completely sucked me in! I was hooked and intrigued. Somewhere in the middle I got lost, the storyline seemed to sloooooooow waaaaaaay down and I stuggled. BUT with so many unanswered questions I kept chug-a-luggin' along. AND let me tell you, It was worth it. That ending! Holy Shit! So strong and emotional and just WOW! Completely unexpected!

If you want the nitty gritty deets, you're gonna have to read the book!!!!!!

Lola Winters’ heart already belongs to Johnny, but for him, she’d sell the devil her soul. Unfortunately, the devil wants something else.

Beau Olivier is the kind of wealthy that buys anything—even people. When he makes Lola a proposition, she finds herself tempted into a seduction that will have her walking the line between comfort and humiliation, desire and resistance. He would own her—for one night. She would be his—for a price. It was wrong. It was scandalous. It was the opportunity of a lifetime.

Sex, music, neon on the Sunset Strip—right in the middle of it all, he would have her. Come sunrise, he would let her go. At least, that was the plan.
