Jessica Hawkins has a gift. A great one.
She makes you feel, makes you uncomfortable, makes you hot, makes you cry.
Her novels are never similar to others you've probably heard of, because her characters have so many flaws they're unbelievably real.

Jessica Hawkins can really do no wrong as far as I'm concerned. I pre-ordered and was almost too excited to start it. Once I did, I couldn't put it down and read it until the end. There aren't many authors that can get in my head like Jessica. I loved it. I love that she explores human frailty, the stuff that's at the edges of relationships. It deserves to be a best seller. Can't wait for the next installment.

*Audible Review*
I had previously read Possession, and the entire Explicitly Yours series, a little over a year ago, but when I saw Jessica Hawkins was having the audiobook recorded I knew I had to read it again. Or rather, listen to it. Narrated by Christian Fox, one of romancelandia's favorite narrators, I knew I was in for an erotic audible adventure. I usually like female narrators or alternating narrators, but Christian Fox knocked the ball out

Lola had a boyfriend.. Strike 1.
Said boyfriend tells Lola to flirt with Beau for business.... Strike 2.
I'm reading about Lola and Johnny's lame sex and then I'm expected to read about Lola and Beau later? Nope.... Strike 3. I'm out.
Loved it and want to read the rest of the series. Will be interesting to see if author can maintain the excellent writing/story. Loved the characters; writing; story; pace. I read a lot of it aloud; the writing was just that delicious. Will be reading this book again soon. If you enjoy, dark, delicious and devious - grab this. :)

3.5 Hey Joe Stars

This is a hard one to review because it had me changing my mind constantly. One minute I really liked the characters and the next they seemed to be someone completely different.

Beau would make me swoon and then I'd want to slap him round the chops with my Kindle. He could have been darker, and less sweet. I didn't like Johnny from early on in this book, he didn't do anything in particular, he's just blah. Lola, well. At times she was strong, then I wanted her to grow some blood

4.5 STARS!!!

Would you do it? Would you spend one night with a stranger if you could make the dreams of the one you love come true? That’s the question Lola faces. Lola and Johnny run an old school bar, Hey Joe’s, in LA which is like their second home. Hey Joe’s is a local institution. Bars like Hey Joe’s are a dying breed. The bar comes up for sale, and it has always been Johnny’s dream to own it. If Lola and Johnny don’t save it, Hey Joe will go to the highest

Move over David Dylan, here comes Beau Olivier. I didn’t say that. I’m sorry David, please forgive me.

If you know me at all, you know I am a HUGE Jessica Hawkins fan and have been since Come Undone, book one of The Cityscape Series. No one writes an alpha man quite like Jessica. I swear I fall in love with every fictional man she creates.

I seem to be fan girling all over this review.

When I heard Jessica was releasing a new series, I was all over it. There was no way I would miss these books, I d
I never really liked the movie "Indecent Proposal" but totally into this remake. The rich guy is much hotter, and I'm more interested in the heroine. Though I find myself frustrated with her thought processes when it comes to the relationship with the boyfriend.

Liked it, but didn't love it.

What kept me going through the book, and what will push me to continue with this series, is this author's brilliant writing. Yes this book was flat for me, but overall it was decently executed.

The storyline itself is a take on Indecent Proposal, where the financially struggling couple (Lola and Johnny) are looking for the answer to their prayers. In walks Beau Olivier. But this time around (going forward with the series) I'm guessing we'll have to deal with the gr

I was given an arc of this book for an honest review.

This is part of a 3 part serial. You have Johnny and Lola who are an average sort of couple. They run a local bar, but live paycheck to paycheck. Lola had so many dreams and aspirations, but the reality of life settled in. She got very comfortable in her life with Johnny... that is until Beau walks into their bar one night. He offers her and Johnny a one time deal at the life they dream of, but at what cost? And is that life what Lola really w

This is Jessica Hawkins' first book series (published a few years ago as the Night Fever series) but I just read it last year! Ooops! Haha

Nonetheless, it's a unique story line that may remind you of a movie or two but trust me, it's really not what you'd expect.

Possession is the first book were Beau & Lola meet in a very interesting way and from the start, Lola is DEFINITELY intrigued by this man. However, there's a BIG secret that Beau hides and THAT could be Lola's worst nightmare. Beau se

One of my top reads of the year. This book possessed totally.
Where to begin? The book was a very slow read to the point I almost quit several times. Johnny was over weight, sloppy, with no ambition and took Lola for granted. Beau was down right nasty, and degraded Lola and Lola thought it was a sexual turn on to be treated that way. There was no show from neither Johnny nor Beau of actually caring for Lola. Then the "to be continued" popped up at the end of the book. I can't call it a cliff hanger because it was too boring to be called that. I believe the ...more

3,85. Adoro essa autora, todo livro dela é polêmico e compensa muuuuuito a leitura! Esse primeiro livro da série começou meio..... Já vi isso antes, mais um do mesmo. Mas no final, a autora conseguiu captar mais minha atenção, pensando..... E aí? Com certeza indo para o próximo!

I didn't realize this was written by Jessica Hawkins until after I read a few chapters. Once I realized it, the story voice made complete sense. I am already familiar with her writing style from reading The First Taste, and I really enjoyed it. There were a few things that rubbed me the wrong way but none of those aspects are in Possession.

I have to disagree with a friend about this book. This story isn't about cheating. Not in the sense that the partner does not know it is happening. A handsom

Wow! What a story!! Pretty Woman meets Indecent Proposal. What’s not to love?!
My first 5 star read of the year. This author never disappoints- I’ve loved all of her books so far.
I couldn’t put it down. Thank goodness it’s a series.
Complex characters. Good writing. Has potential to open a discussion on a few moral points. Unless you’ve got that figured.

It read alot like Indecent Proposal except that the billionaire wasn't some creepy, paunchy old guy. Definitely can't wait to read the sequel

Lola Winters is a waitress and assistant manager of Hey Joe, the has-been of nightlife hot spots in Los Angeles. It’s just not bringing in the clientele like it used to. The owner ready to sell, everyone’s worried about their jobs and the future of the actual bar. Johnny’s always dreamed of owning his own bar and Hey Joe would be perfect. They live from paycheck-to-paycheck and are both tired of living like that and want more for themselves. If they don’t find a way to get it unde
