My 3 star Review of 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.

Slip of the Tongue is a standalone forbidden romance. Please note it contains adultery themes that may be triggers for some people.

I have sat on this review because I'm still not sure what I want to say. Love triangles, cheating- none of that bothers me in books. I guess the biggest thing would be I still can't wrap my head around the reasons for their marriage going to hell in a hand-basket. I honestly didn't really connect with any of the characters. Story line itself had potential to be great, but I felt like it was just a broken record that kept skipping over and over playing the same thing. And after it was all said and done the ending fell kind a flat felt rushed and just didn't do much for me. There were a few aha moments that caught me by surprise but still didn't really intrigue me enough to make me love this story.
