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.
I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
The blurb spoke to me. Angst? Yes please. Love triangle? I need it. Slip Of The Tongue was an alluring and addicting read that keeps you guessing from beginning to end.
“I will love you the same in the dark as I do in the light.”
Nathan (Nate) Hunt is the perfect husband to Sadie. Until one day he isn’t. He simply just stops. All his admiration and adoration for his wife comes to a halt. He becomes cold. Distant. Leaving Sadie lost and lonely within her own marriage. When Finn Cohen moves across the hall, he is immediately drawn to Sadie. But she’s married. As Finn spends time with Sadie as her new neighbor he learns that her husband is never really around. He prefers to spend his time away from home. Away from his wife. The yearning he has for her consumes him. And she is easily attracted to him. But what happens when the love of your life forgets you exist?
“This is what happens to a man consumed by a woman he can’t have.”
If you love angst, then you will LOVE this book. There are many twists and turns as the story unfolds. This is much more than a love triangle/cheating book. This story PUSHES you. It allows you to question everything you ever felt about love. And marriage. You as the reader become conflicted. There is this underlying mystery to why Nate suddenly pulls away. You feel Sadie’s hurt. Her pain. She is so used to being the center of Nate’s world, so when he pulls away, she is devastated but finds solace in Finn. But Finn has secrets. And those are his to tell.
“He feeds my newly hungry soul, but he isn’t afraid to show me his fear.”
Slip Of The Tongue is an addictive read. You easily see why Sadie loves her husband so much, but is fascinated by Finn. Drawn to him. The author authentically captures the ups and downs between a man and his wife in marriage. Beyond cheating. There are high emotions in this one. The story is raw and unapologetically honest. This is not for those that are faint at heart as this is a heavy read. But definitely worth it.
