No matter how cruel it’s been in the past, I’ve never been able to flip fate the bird. I’m a romantic at heart. So when fate drops a leather-bound journal at my feet, I know I should walk away. I don’t. I pick her up, bend her spine, spread her pages. From the first word, I’m a goner. The owner didn’t give me access to her most intimate desires, but I devour them anyway. Her private darkness, her candid, explicit poetry—it all goes down like warm milk. And from that point forward, I drink, eat, and sleep her.
I went to his apartment and let him take my picture. Just once, to see how it would feel. I’m not his to look at, to inspire, to touch, but when he watches me through his lens, it gives me a high I don’t want to come down from… My journal is the one place I can be myself—as long as I can tie it up and put it away when I’m finished. But when Finn undoes the bow, he pulls strings that could unravel each of us.

Jessica Hawkins is such an amazing author, she has the power to completely consume me and pull me into her stories. I had this total internal battle going on through the entire book of SLIP OF THE TONGUE. Ugh, it made me SO MAD! I fell so hard and it was so funny because I had just completely figured out in my head how the entire story was supposed to play out, scene for scene, I had made all of Sadie’s choices for her and was like OK, now I’ll just sit back and watch this play out and you know what she did… Sadie totally DID NOT take my advice, she just went and made her own decisions! The nerve! 😉 haha! But what was so amazing about that, was that I realized even thought I was mad, and I was SO mad. I was FEELING! Jessica Hawkins makes me FEEL so many emotions right from page one. Her characters are so raw and have so much depth to them. Its a beautiful thing. And Slip of the tongue was an absolutely beautiful book.
Yours to Bare was no different, it pulled me in from the VERY. FIRST. PAGE. The characters were so totally real and honest and raw. They put their hearts on the line for one another, but for us the reader as well.
I mean this is why we read right? To FEEL IT ALL, to be in the moment in the story in all the gut wrenching shit that goes along with falling in love. FINN & HALSTON didn’t fall they LEAPT and they just prayed like hell that the other would be there to catch them.
The amount of faith these two characters, both left bleeding by their pasts, put into one another it melted my heart. And then I started thinking… about 74% into the book, about how we as readers put that same faith into the author. We hand them our hearts and pray that they take care of them, and return them back not only whole, but filled. FINN filled me up and Jessica Hawkins kept on pouring. The two of them left my heart overflowing with love and lust and UGH, it was just perfection!
