First and foremost, if you can’t stand love-triangles then don’t read this book. Or, if you are like me and can’t stand them but still has a way of finding these books and reading them then by all means go ahead and read.
I have mixed thoughts/feelings regarding Slip of The Tongue. To my surprise things the characters do did not bother me as it usually would. Maybe it is how things start out and how I was interpreting what is/might be going on.
Nathan, Sadie’s husband has been cold and distant the past few months, which leaves Sadie confused, hurt and pretty much lonely as Nathan rather go out alone and hang out with his friends than spend time with her. And it is an 180 on Nathan’s part, as he’s always been the doting husband, catering to all his wife’s wants and needs. Now he hardly, talks to her and rarely touches her.
Is he cheating? If so, why and with who? All those questions start playing in my head, as eventually in Sadie’s.
In the time Nathan is neglecting his wife, a new handsome neighbour moves in next door. Fin. He’s charming, charismatic and attentive. Right of the bat he takes a liking to Sadie, and she one on him, but most importantly she likes the attention he gives her and that is when things start getting *ahem* dirty.
I started out liking Sadie but eventually her selfishness, whinny and double standards started grating me. She became annoying. As for fin… I think he was a creep, at first he as Sadie was likeable, but pretty quickly I started disliking him. And not to mention he was a bit obsessive and just creepy. As for Nathan… hmm, he acted immature and petty.
But regardless of the characters and what they did, did not do, I couldn’t put the book down. It was an easy read, had sexy time, and the writing was fine. The ending left me a bit disappointed but not terribly. I think it was mostly the ending that bothered me the most to be honest, I hate when people or characters brush things under the rug like it is no big deal, but that’s just me.
