When asked what I think about Jessica’s release, Slip of the Tongue, I’d always describe my answer in four simple words: forbidden, daring, thoughtful, and different. Yup, and by different I mean in the best way possible. I didn’t know what to expect when agreeing to review this book. The blurb makes it clear what goes down in it – do I agree with infidelity? Heck no! But let me tell you, I’m glad I read it.
This book is different. It makes you think and I noticed that I didn’t so much focus on the adultery part but more on what’s going on in the heads of the characters. I can’t fully describe it but I was fascinated to read about Sadie’s inner struggle and agony knowing her marriage, her beloved husband, who is just so perfect, might not love her anymore. Her trying to figure out what could have gone wrong, what could she have done and not. I felt for her, I truly did. But also for her husband – hands down, he’s indeed perfect, inside and out.
After reading the book it felt like I got taught a lesson, you know, as in, ‘101 How to Keep Your Relationship Alive’. I love such books. I love feeling I learned something no matter if it’s through mistakes made by others.
Anyhow, don’t let the cheating part hinder you from picking up this standalone (it’s a two-book series but each can be read as standalone’s). It’s a great smooth read with some sizzling moments in them, characters and actions that make you think, and situations that make you feel uncomfortable. For me, it was great; I love different, and Jessica def succeeded to create yet another noteworthy novel.
