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.

“He can’t have you!”

Once we got started, we could not put this book down, reading it in pretty much one sitting! If you’re not a fan of cheating then this book isn’t for you. However, if you devour books with angst, real emotions and an engrossing story, not to mention some of THE hottest sex scenes we’ve encountered for a while, that while not overly descriptive were extremely well written and off the charts hot, then this one just might be for you!

“Sadie, you looked at me like I was…I was someone you’d loved and lost – and then found.”

The players in this story are Nathan and Sadie who’ve been together for 8 years and are currently going through a bit of a troubled patch in their marriage. It is Finn, their also married new neighbour that Sadie turns to as a shoulder to cry on when her doting and loving husband, in her eyes, becomes distant and cold, shutting down emotionally in their marriage. Comfort from Finn soon turns into attraction and lust, with both Sadie and Finn unable to deny their feelings and desires.

“This is what happens when to a man consumed by a woman he can’t have.”

Nathan has always been the perfect husband. He’s a selfless man who loves his wife, he dotes on her…Sadie is his universe. So why, for the past few months has he been shutting Sadie out of his life? What is beneath his sudden cold and aloof actions?

We were teased mercilessly by Jessica Hawkins as we became desperate to uncover the reason for Nathan’s complete personality change with conspiracy theories being bandied around like crazy. We needed to get inside Nathan’s head, though our need didn’t appear to match Sadie’s apathy towards Nathan’s retreat from her. Whilst Sadie ‘talked’ about getting to the bottom of Nathan’s change in behaviour, she didn’t appear to assertively make the effort to uncover what was bothering him, instead jumping to conclusions and driving us up the wall.

‘It may be the wrong man. It may be the wrong apartment. But I got my wish. There is someone waiting for me after all.’

Sadie was a rather self-absorbed person in our opinion, seemingly making excuses for her reasoning’s and her behaviour rather than proactively making an effort to resolve their problems. Instead finding it easier to blame others for her own shortcomings.

‘How far are they each willing to go? How far am I?”

This story did feel real and the emotions very raw, with the author exploring the relationships in order for the characters to grow and move forward.  What we particularly admired in the writing was how this author didn’t make either Finn or Nathan the ‘bad’ guy and didn’t play one off against the other, resulting in us loving both these men equally. Each gripping our heart with their feelings and struggles. When Nathans issues unravelled, they were real, we felt them and our hearts hurt for him. As much as Nathan affected us, so too did Finn, our hearts aching for both these men.

“I’ll fight for us, and you will too, even if I have to make you.”

We did feel the ending let the story down in some ways. After all the heartache and struggles we went through with these characters we felt it ended a little too abruptly way too easily. We believed the story right up until the end, and although there was emotion in the ending, the ease of which is played out left us feeling a little flat. An epilogue or some ‘afters‘ relating to Sadie’s decision would have probably helped in this regard. However in saying that, we were completely engrossed throughout, unable to put it down until we hit that last page. A fabulously written, raw, painful and emotional story…..oh and did we mention…. it was hot?
