Review: Slip of the Tongue by Jessica Hawkins

*****5 Stars*****
For the last 7 years Sadie is loved unconditionally by her husband Nathan. Then one day it stops and he becomes cold as ice. Nathan avoids intimacy, he won't talk to Sadie unless he has to and he can't bear to be at home with her. Sadie can't work out why and is besides herself trying to work it out, she tries to talk to Nathan so many times and when he continues with the cold shoulder treatment she end up in her neighbour Finn's arms. At first Sadie just finds comfort in having another man to talk to and initially hides her marital differences but then ends up spilling all and craving Finn's touch. However there's a big but coming. Finn has secrets of his own and they aren't little secrets either although it doesn't stop the initial passion igniting. Can Sadie repair her marriage and find out why her husbands so distant or will her passion for Finn ignite and her marriage disintegrate. One Click and find out.
Well I don't know what can I say apart from I loved this book. I know a lot of people aren't a fan of triangles and cheating but this one is as close to a real life scenario as one could get and so I urge you to give it a try as it could happen to anyone. It has some twists and turns along the way where it's difficult to predict what to think will happen when it reveals something else entirely. The flow of the story is immaculate and keeps you reading on and on and pulling your mind and heart into the story itself. The way the author has written this it seems in a way too real for fiction as it explains deeply how the characters are thinking and feeling and doesn't have any out there over the top elements that some may throw into fiction. Jessica is an author I haven't ever read before but I will now be looking at more of her books.

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.
