No matter how cruel it’s been in the past, I’ve never been able to flip fate the bird. I’m a romantic at heart. So when fate drops a leather-bound journal at my feet, I know I should walk away.

I don't. I pick her up, bend her spine, spread her pages. From the first word, I’m a goner. The owner didn’t give me access to her most intimate desires, but I devour them anyway

I have wanted more Finn from the second I met him in Slip of the Tongue.

Oh, my... I got my wish. I got to know Finn; how he thinks, what he likes, what he needs to be happy, what makes him... him. And he's amazing. He's complex. He's nuanced. He's intense. And he's a little difficult and demanding as well.

I loved getting to know Finn after the events of Slip. You can't go through something like that and not have it change you. I thought I knew him at t

Halston Fox, an art analyst, has been secretly keeping a journal. That journal has been giving her a place free from prying eyes to explore her innermost thoughts and sexual desires. She has never shared her written erotic fantasies with anybody. She’s been using it as a means to better understand her sexuality, to clear her mind and serve as a canvas to which she can pour her sensual thoughts into.

Ohhh myyy what a beautiful beautiful read!! You know I really didn't know what to think when going into this because of Nathan and Slip of the tongue and I'll be honest I didn't think I'd like it, but that was a FOOOL thought because damn this is Jessica's #addictive writing we're talking about here and once I started I was pulled into every page that was Finn and Halston's story..

If you have read Slip of the Tongue then you will know just how seductive Finn Cohen can be. However, his powers of seduction and sexual prowess had me constantly aroused reading this book. It got so intense that I wanted to have sex with Finn Cohen too.

So let me talk a bit about him. He is sexy and gorgeous, I think I’ve already clarified that point, but he is also a very talented photographer. He has made a few bad relationship decisions / choices in the past few years and these have left him

After reading Slip of the Tongue I was excited to learn that Finn was getting his own book and hopefully his chance at true love this time. I loved getting more on his background, learning who he is and hearing his side of the story. But he had a lot of baggage. Finding the right woman could take some effort.

Finn is recently divorced, a father to eight year old Marissa and a photographer living in New York City. When he finds a journal at the local coffee shop he can't help but to pick it up. H

"Fate doesn't stick around for happy endings -- it only gives you the opportunity to work for one."

FATE - That word meant a lot to Finn. He is a true believer, as am I...which is why I think I could easily fall into this story and did. Finn is an artist, as well as Halston, so they already had that certain depth to them. So for these two people to be connected on such an intimate level, so quickly and almost so effortlessly, that was amazing to see blossom. They lived and breathed raw lust, an

Predivna knjiga ❤
Ovaj put ću da zakeram, kao po običaju, i ovaj put zamerka ide izdavaču 🙄 Pre par godina sam pročitala njenu trilogiju The Cityscape, i više ništa njeno nisam čitala, ali sam redovno pratila o čemu piše. Kad sam počela da čitam "Gola duša", već na prvim stranicama mi je ime Fin Koen bilo poznato, al sam batalila, misleći da mi se pomešalo sa nekom drugom knjigom. Međutim kad je počeo da spominje svoju bivšu ljubavnicu Sejdi, nešto mi je tu počelo nedostajati... I naravno da sam
Addicting! Powerful! Beautifully sexual! I was absolutely SEDUCED from the very beginning! Jessica Hawkins delivers in the BEST POSSIBLE WAY!

With impeccable writing, amazing depth, and intense passion, YOURS TO BARE is NOT to be missed. Ms. Hawkins DEMANDS to be noticed in this industry, and with red-hot emotional releases like this one, she deserves to be ON TOP! This author held me captive emotionally, physically, and mentally.

All right, Finn's story..... my feelings are all over the place.

As we know, if you haven't read Slip of the tongue yet, was the sexy neighbor whom Sadie had an affair with. Since his story didn't have any closure whatsoever, i felt extremely bad for him.

He was such a hopeless romantic and he really deserves his happy ending and that's why i wanted to read this.

It was weird in the beginning reading how he fell in love again with another girl when i was used to seeing him with Sadie. but Halston

ARC provided in exchange for an honest review.

Yours to Bare is a standalone novel that follows Finn and Halston as they begin a love affair that quickly grows from lust to much more. I loved Finn in Slip of the Tongue, so I knew I had to read Yours to Bare. As a standalone it comes with all of the backstory, it truly isn't necessary to read Slip of the Tongue and I actually really liked that about Yours to Bare. Finn is different after having his heart broken, it's apparent that he is j
What a PHENOMENAL book!!!

Yours to Bare is one of those rare books that makes us think that if we had to choose only one more book to read it would have to be it!

It has the right amount of angst and the story flows so perfectly! The only flaw in this book is that it had to end!I believe it's Jessica Hawkins best work so far and I'm so happy I got to read it!!

Yours to Bare is provocative, romantic, tantalizing, angsty and so much more, you simply won't be able to forget about it after you read it!

Holy flutters in my tummy, Jessica Hawkins just gave me my most sensual and erotic read of 2016. Hands down. YOURS TO BARE is a book packed with emotion, angst and bone jarring passion that will have you clinging onto every word you read and every single thing the characters portray. It's real, it's sexy, it's utterly alluring. Right off the bat, Hawkins will have your palms sweating, heart racing, stomach clenching, and you'll just keep begging for more.

Yours to Bare is the steamy spin-off book from Slip of the Tongue featuring our holy hotness photographer Finn Cohen. First off, this can be read as a complete standalone, however I think knowing his backstory a bit was helpful to understanding the man he was going into this book.

Single dad, struggling photographer, Finn finds a large leather journal in a coffee shop. His curiosity getting the best of him, Finn cracks it open and is astounded by the captions he reads. Raw, sexy, profound. He mu

Jessica Hawkins is such an amazing author, she has the power to completely consume me and pull me into her stories. I had this total internal battle going on through the entire book of SLIP OF THE TONGUE. Ugh, it made me SO MAD! I fell so hard and it was so funny because I had just completely figured out in my head how the entire story was supposed to play out, scene for scene, I had made all of Sadie's choices for her and was like OK, now I'll just sit back and watch this play out and you know

“I’ve eaten her dirty secrets like candy, and now she’s the hungry one.”

Finn stole my heart in Slip of the Tongue, while he didn’t win that time I always knew that his time would come and he would get the girl who truly deserved him. Finn had a heart the size of Texas and it would take some woman to be deserving of it…was Halston that woman?

4-4.5 stars. Oh Finn Cohen, how I had always hoped that he would find love, or "the one" someday. While I wasn't rooting for him in Slip of the Tongue, I still couldn't help but love the guy. Finn is living in the aftermath of his mistakes and it's a cruel reality trying to get a leg up in his current life. He still longs for intimacy and not just in a casual way, but to really know someone and to be their whole world and vice versa. For all that he's endured, I'm impressed that he's not more bi ...more

First 45 pages came like a bang.
I figured out three things that happened — all of which I didn't like.

•Finn was married to Kendra
•He had affair with a married woman named Sadie, in the course of his marriage. A woman he supposedly thought of as his "soul mate" who dumped his ass and went back to her hubby after the infidelity comes out.
•Finn has an 8 year old daughter alongside his now dissolved, bitter divorce.

Initial thoughts: cheap, characterless weasel.

Final thoughts: cheap, characterles

Intoxicating, raw, vulnerable and powerful. I love the non traditional aspect of this book and the way it presents real flaws in a different manner. This was my first book by Jessica Hawkins and I look forward to reading more.

Ever since I got The First Taste of Jessica's writing (pun intended) hehe I was hooked on every word, but Slip of The Tongue was my first book by her and where my love of Finn evolved. God, I loved him and ached for him to get his happy, and I am so glad Jessica made me wait. The writing is so sensual and beautiful. Her words dribble like honey onto your tongue as you read and become enamored and entrapped in her world. And what a sexy world you'll find yourself in. I don't want to spoil anythin ...more

This story is provocatively alluring, Lustful, and out of this world passionate. I can't think of a better way to showcase Finns story.

“Show me everything and nothing”

Out of this world stunning from start to finish. I can't even form the words right now. If you've followed this series you should definitely read this story, my favorite of the series.

Jessica knocked it out of the park with her writing, absolutely beautiful. Her words, you feel them through every single chapter.

So newly divorced Finn just had got out of a tumultuous affair, and with a married woman no less. He's usually a firm believer in fate and all that jazz, but at the moment he's a little traumatized from his last disaster of a relationship. He's not exactly looking for love, just avoiding the hurt of his past, when he finds it. Wrapped in leather and full of passion, a journal of the girl he knows he's meant to love. It's fate.

Jessica Hawkins has a talent and that talent is putting her heart and soul into making a reader feel everything that's happening in her books. I'm not just talking about that knack of writing that you get with all good authors, but the knack to make the pages of a book come to life where you feel and breath along with the characters as well as turning the words on the page into that magical place where you lose yourself in the story.

I just finished this book. And, I cannot even right now. I'm consumed. Ruined. Turned on. My heart is full. I'm happy. I'm sad. Sad it's over.

It's one of THOSE BOOKS. Come on, you know what I'm talking about. You find yourself thinking about it while you're doing day to day things.

I am so in love with Finn and Halston.

Oh Finn! Our romantic dreamer who believes so strongly in the powers of fate.

While I was very excited to see Finn get a book, it was Halston who stole my heart. She was like a baby foal getting her feet under her and learning to walk. Oh, does she teeter on those new legs! She is learning to be herself and let her true self shine.

Fate always plays a funny hand in life. The things that we do on impulse always seem to come back around during pivotal points in your life. For Finn - everything that transpired between he and Sadie caused a ripple effect that he is still feeling the effects of. Avoiding certain places that hold memories of their time together led Finn to this moment. A discovery of a journal that contains writing that beckons to Finn. The words speak like woven silk upon the pages. A look into one woman’s dark ...more

When this book first came out the cover drew me in at first. Then I read blurb and decided I wasn't sure I could get into it so I didn't buy it right away. Then about 2 weeks later I gave in and decided to give it a try. I was very wrong to judge the book just by blurb. In saying that this book was so captivating that it hooked line sinker me. It's so alluring you won't be able to stop if you tried. And trust me you won't even want to put it down.
