Unpopular Opinion Alert: Review of Slip Of The Tongue by Jessica Hawkins

Slip of the Tongue by Jessica Hawkins – 1 star 


Slip of the tongue tells the story of Sadie – a perfectionist when it comes to her marriage. But she is having trouble wit her husband Nathan who has been cold, distant, and just downright mean. And when her hot as sin new neighbor Finn moves in, she goes to him for comfort and their affair begins.

There were things I liked about this story. And A LOT of things I did not.

Actually, as I sit here and write this review, I think the only thing I actually did like about this story was Finn. He was sexy, sweet, patient, and even though he wasn’t Sadie’s husband, I was kind of routing for him the whole time.

“If you can’t do this, I will. I’ll make this decision for us. When you hurt tomorrow, physically, or emotionally… when you question what we did…when you ache to do it again- I’ll take the blame for all of it Sadie.”

See? He’s probably the only thing that kept me going.

Now for what I didn’t like. As I read, and especially when I finished, something about the story was just …off. Something didn’t click with me. Maybe it was the choppy writing, which I personally am not a fan of.

But as I continued to think about it, realization dawned. So I’ll just admit it….the heroine?


There, I said it. I found her annoying, self-involved, spoiled, and rather daft. I had an extremely hard time understanding how someone could fall head over heels for this girl, especially after spending only a few short moments together. Was Finn really willing to change his whole life for HER? I just didn’t believe it. Apart from her lack of remorse and some infuriating thoughts, she lacked personality and I found her dull. I don’t think the book being solely in her point of view helped this. After a while, I started to skim her inner monologues because I just didn’t care for her thoughts.

WARNING: A few RANTY SPOILERS below to further clarify what I didn’t like:

– Her reasoning for justifying her affair was absolutely ridiculous. It was completely blown out of proportion. Nathan was definitely cold towards her because of what he found out she hid from him, but his behavior was happening for not even 2 months, and it took her quite some time to open her mouth and even confront him about it. Granted, he should have spoken to her about it. That I agree on. But she mentions multiple times how HAPPY their marriage has been. So at the first hiccup, it’s ok to just abandon your marriage? PUH-LEASE.

-Yes, Nathan was cold, yes he was distant, yes he shut her out. But when it came down to it, and Nathan found out about the affair, I don’t even think she said SORRY. She literally held zero accountability for OPENING HER LEGS FOR ANOTHER MAN. And I am not saying how Nathan acted was right. But after he finds out, he just brushes it off, they barely speak of what she did, and all is forgiven. I’m sorry, but I am pretty sure if someone broke your trust and vows, a conversation and maybe a “hey I’m sorry someone else’s dick was in me” is warranted. Just saying.

I won’t spoil it and discuss which man she winds up with, but in my opinion the ending was too wrapped up in a neat little bow. And the reactions of both men just ‘accepting’ things was so unrealistic.

 My review :

Target On Our Backs by JM Darhower – 5 Stars

NAZ IS BACK BABY. And let me tell you, he does NOT disappoint.

In the third installment to the Monster In His Eyes Series by my QUEEN JM Darhower, we get to see a somewhat, dare I say, softer side to the monster you can’t help but love. Don’t worry, though. For all the sick, twisted, lunatics out there like me (I am not ashamed to admit Naz threatening to slice a man’s throat still gets me all giddy) who can’t help but swoon when Naz goes all “monster” on a man, he still won’t hesitate to take out anyone who crosses him…..

Even though he’s trying. Trying to stay out of that life. Trying to be a better man for Karissa. But people from his past are making it really hard for him to be the ‘good man’ Karissa believes he is.

“…He’s not doing it because he wants to repent for his actions. He’s not doing it to make up for his sins. He’s doing it not because he’s tired of being the man he has been. He’s doing it because he thinks it’s what I need.

He wants to be a better man to ease my guilt for loving someone like him.

A leopard doesn’t change its spots. That’s what Giuseppe said.

You can dress a wolf up in sheep’s clothing, but the son of a bitch will still eat you alive if you let it.”

And that is all I will say on the plot. As always, I think a book like this is best read going in blind. I will talk about Naz, though. And I will mention how he is unbelievably, undeniably, irrefutably one of the sexiest men I have ever read about. And it’s not even his skill, his dirty words, or his dominance (though those don’t hurt my case – see below my fellow pervs), it’s his quiet confidence, it’s the way he loves Karissa, the way he will not let ANYTHING come between them.

“And I was going to love you right, remind you what it feels like to be cherished, to be idolized, to be treated like the queen you are. I was going to make serious love to you, baby.”

I let out a shaky breath, and before I can even inhale again, his hand shifts. It’s a split second, barely a blink. His hand is around my neck, tightly squeezing, as he yanks me toward him, flush against him.

“But now I think I’ll just fuck you instead.”


HELLOOOOOOOOO, NAZ! Oh, how I have missed you.

This book was absolutely amazing. Incredible. Phenomenal. And every other synonym for the words I just wrote.

Ever since I first read Monster In His Eyes, nothing has come close to being so captivating. Nothing just sucks you in from the get-go quite like her stories. JM Darhower’s writing, as usual, is flawless. She can write books on this man until the end of time and I would never tire of them.

AND THAT ENDING?! I WAS NOT PREPARED. MY GOD I was not ready. It should have come with a warning *Fainting May Occur* *Your Heart May Explode*.

A side note – Lorenzo absolutely stole the show for me. I am IN LOVE with that crazy ass man and I would be freaking ecstatic to see him get a book of his own!

Friday Favorites : Beautiful Bastard Series by Christina Lauren


On Fridays, we share our favs.

This week, I am sharing one of my ALL TIME FAVORITE SERIES ever –

The Beautiful Bastard Series by Christina Lauren.

This is probably my most re-read series and if you haven’t read it yet, let me introduce the delicious men you need to meet:


“Devious, filthy girl. You like being watched, don’t you?”

– Bennett Ryan (Beautiful Bastard, Book 1.)


“Why are you carrying all these sticky drinks out to the dance floor?”
“My friends just got engaged. We’re doing the girls’ night out thing.”
“So then you’re unlikely to leave here with me.”
I blinked, and then blinked again, hard. With this frank suggestion, I was officially out of my depth. Way out of my depth. “I… what? No.”
“You’re serious? You just met me.”
“And already I have a strong urge to devour you.”   

– Max Stella (Beautiful Stranger, Book 2)


“That isn’t just sex,” I told her, sucking along her collarbone. “This feeling that it’s so good it almost hurts? It’s been like this every single time I’ve been inside you, Plum. That’s what it feels like when you do this with someone you’re fucking insane for.”

– Will Sumner (Beautiful Player, Book 3)


“I’m not making love to you tonight with anything but my hands – but I want you to come so violently on my fingers that you’ll wake in the middle of the night , desperate to recreate it, only to fail.”

– Niall Stella (Beautiful Secret, Book 4).

*All books can be read as standalones, but I obviously do not recommend that. I loved each and every one and highly recommend this fun sexy series!

Authors: Laurelin Paige & Sierra Simone


 Release Date: March 8, 2016



You know me.

Come on, you know you do.

Maybe you pretend you don’t. Maybe you clear your browser history religiously. Maybe you pretend to be aghast whenever someone even mentions the word porn in your presence.

But the truth is that you do know me.

Everybody knows Logan O’Toole, world famous porn star.

Except then Devi Dare pops into my world, and pretty soon I’m doing things that aren’t like me—like texting her with flirty banter and creating an entire web porn series just so I can get to star in her bed. Again. And again.

With Devi, my entire universe shifts, and the more time I spend with her, the more I realize that Logan O’Toole isn’t the guy I thought he was.

So maybe I’m not the guy you thought I was either.

RELEASE DATE: May 10, 2016


A standalone romantic psychological thriller.

There are two thousand people living in Gun Creek, Nevada.

Only one of them knows what really happened that night.

One year ago, my boyfriend almost killed my mother.

One year ago, my stepfather became my legal guardian.

One year ago, my whole world ended.

The boy I loved was the boy who ended my world; Leo drank too much, got behind the wheel and smashed his car into my mother’s as she drove home from work. I believe him when he says it was an accident, but there’s only so much you can forgive when you’ve seen your mother laid out on a hospital gurney, all pale skin and damp hair from where they’ve tried to wash the blood away. There’s only so much you can forgive as you watch a nurse feed her through a feeding tube, because your mother has turned into a ghost.

There’s only so much you can forgive when your stepfather—the untouchable town Sheriff—moves into your bedroom and forces you to fulfill his every dark desire.

Yesterday the mailman handed me a letter from the prison where Leo’s being held. Leo’s getting out. The boy who stole my mother and thrust me into this hell? He gets to walk free after one lousy year. He gets to move on with his life, and start again, and I’m trapped in this nightmare that never seems to end.

One year ago, my boyfriend almost killed my mother.

One year ago, my stepfather became my legal guardian.

One year ago, my whole world ended.

My cock has an appetite.

A huge and very particular appetite: Blonde, curvy, and preferably not a fucking liar…(Although, that’s a story for another day.)

As a high profile lawyer, I don’t have time to waste on relationships, so I fulfill my needs by anonymously chatting and sleeping with women I meet online.

My rules are simple: One dinner. One night. No repeats.

This is only casual sex. Nothing more. Nothing less.

At least it was , until “Alyssa”…

She was supposed to be a 27 year old lawyer, a book hoarder, and completely unattractive. She was supposed to be someone I shared law advice with late at night, someone I could trust with details of my weekly escapades.

But then she came into my firm for an interview–a college-intern interview, and everything fucking changed…

Everything about the man screamed confidence. Sensuality. Intelligence. Worldliness. But it was how he saved me that ruined me most.
Through him, I learned to end my path of self-destruction. I no longer needed to numb the pain with mindless one-night-stands and drunken blackouts. He made me feel worthy. Treasured. Optimistic about my future.
Here I stand four years later, in a coffee shop a world away, still broken…but beautifully so. My scars no longer hold me back. Instead, they give me strength and enrich my appreciation for the good things in life.
I have hopes and dreams…faith that anything is possible.
I am no longer the lost little girl fighting for survival. I have direction.
I have courage. I am not without possibility.
I’ll always have Gavin to thank for that—Mr. Cooper, I remind myself. That’s who he is to me now: just a former teacher. I know what you’re thinking, but don’t worry. I was eighteen when we first met. Legally, we did nothing wrong. Morally? Well, I guess that depends on how flexible your morals are
My name is Kat and this is my story.
