REVIEW: Slip of the Tongue

REVIEW: Slip of the Tongue

Read a review of Slip of the Tongue by Jessica Hawkins. 

Nate and Sadie have enjoyed five years of marital bliss, but now there is something between them. Sadie doesn’t know what it is and Nate isn’t ready to talk about it. But, the distance between them is growing. When Finn moves in across the hall he and Sadie find an easy companionship right away. Finn is able to give Sadie the attention she is missing from Nate. When the sparks start to fly between them Sadie has to decide if she can fight for the man she’s tied to or start something new with the man who wants her in this story of forbidden love.

Slip of the Tongue is torturous and beautiful, and it left me with a major book hangover. Since I wasn’t ready to let go of Nate and Sadie and Finn I stopped over at Hawkins website to check out all of her inspiration examples. She’s got a pinterest board and playlist and it all exactly what I pictured. Now, I want to attend a dinner party at Jessica’s house!

Ghosted is a wonderful story about young love, following your dreams, and the hope that everyone deserves a second chance. Darhower has given us a story about hard work, family, and she even threw in some pretty steamy sexiness. At the same time and more importantly, she has also given us a story with poignant and visceral commentary on important contemporary issues many families face. Darhower tackles some of the ugly situations of physical abuse, substance abuse, and being a single parent. She does it in a way that will make your heart bleed, but still have hope.

REVIEW: Sweet Dreams

REVIEW: Sweet Dreams

Read a review of Kristen Ashley's Sweet Dreams. 

Sweet Dreams is the perfect cross-section of genres to hit my sweet spot. It’s a little sweet. It’s a little funny. It's a little sexy. It’s a little dark. At times, it’s even a little unexpected.

This book was recommend by Natasha Tomic from Natasha is a Book Junkie.

Natasha is a Book Junkie has been one of my favorite blogs for a very long time. I knew that she was a big fan of Kristen Ashley’s from the blog. She mentioned Sweet Dreams in particular several times.  And...I can totally see why it’s one of Natasha’s favorite re-reads. I’ve already read it three times. Sweet Dreams is such a robust story that you need to read it more than once just to appreciate it all.
