Jessica Hawkins I NEED the Rest of This Series NOW

Come Undone

I stayed up WAY past my bedtime listening to this book. It is excellent - except for one thing, it is a cliffhanger! Grrrrrr! Usually, I wait until all of the books in a series or trilogy are released – however, *I was given a copy of this book in exchange for my thoughts, opinions & this review.

This book is phenomenal and I did not want it to end. The tension and frustration between Olivia & David Dylan was off the charts.

The premise of the book is this: A content and married woman meets a man who is everything she could have ever dreamed and more. Could she ever cheat on her husband? How does she deal with these feelings? Will the other man wait for her? And her husband, Bill, will you catch on to her new discontent & unhappiness?

This is an action packed with a good story line and the tug-of-war that Olivia is dealing with is brilliantly written.

This is a new to me author. I hope Jessica Hawkins is locked away writing the next book NOW. That it will be on available on Audible very soon – as in tomorrow when I do a search for Jessica Hawkins.***

(My audio twin, Dawn did the search before I could and it's available. YES!)

Am I awful to want Book 3 done by next week?!?

The narration was incredible. Andi Arndt has a way of telling the story without being distracted by or focused on her performance. She reads and my mind takes over. I'm very impressed.

Notes: Some descriptions of mature situations, a bit of strong language and an assault from a man on a woman.

This would have to be rated R or NC–17 for the subject matter.
Stars – This is a RARE occasion that I give five stars in all categories

I'm really excited about the follow-up book. If you enjoy contemporary romance with a bit of sexy talk, I would recommend you buy it.

Thanks for taking the time to read my review. I enjoy leaving reviews, as I know that they help me decide whether I'll purchase a book. If you found my review helpful in your decision about this book, would you please select "yes" directly below this review? Thank you so much.

Please consider "following me" here on I purchase a lot of books by authors that I am faithful to and well known names. I also have the unique opportunity to review books from lesser known/new authors in all genres. Most of these books are not something that I would not pick up on my own. I have been pleasantly surprised by new authors and great narrators.

Strange Fascination

I found the character of Olivia (27) incredibly immature and almost unlikable. She is married to Bill, a self-absorbed asshole who tries to bully her into be the wife he wants rather than the person she is. Hell, Bill's not even adequate in bed - what a dud!

When Olivia meets David (34), she is confused by her sexual attraction to him. Why? She can't be stupid enough to believe that her marriage is normal & happy. Olivia hides her feelings from everyone, including her closest friends.

David appears to be smitten with Olivia - not sure why - and pursues her relentlessly. At times he seems to genuinely care, rescuing her from an assault at one point, then slaps her without remorse another time. Very strange and absolutely not romantic.

Although I wanted to empathize with Olivia; her self-destructive behavior was sad & rather pathetic. I have difficulty caring about a character who doesn't care about herself. While an improvement over Bill, David was too sexually aggressive and violent. Where have all the mature, loving men gone?
