Yours To Bare by Jessica Hawkins
Released: December 8, 2016
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. Her private darkness, her candid, explicit poetry—it all goes down like warm milk. And from that point forward, I drink, eat, and sleep her.
I went to his apartment and let him take my picture. Just once, to see how it would feel. I’m not his to look at, to inspire, to touch, but when he watches me through his lens, it gives me a high I don’t want to come down from…
My journal is the one place I can be myself—as long as I can tie it up and put it away when I’m finished. But when Finn undoes the bow, he pulls strings that could unravel each of us.
Just one sentence describes what Sadie left me with a year ago – a loving hate. Sweet, searing memories. The ache of desire mixed with the gut-churn of brutal rejection.
Happy? I could eat the words like candy, right off her tongue.
I stay frozen. I don’t even blink. I was married long enough to know I’m in dangerous territory. Both speaking up and staying silent could be deadly decisions. I swallow. Twice.
When you are gone, there is no light.
Happy endings don’t exist… Fate doesn’t stick around for happy endings – it only gives you the opportunity to work for one.
I am a glutton for punishment, as I cannot seem to get enough of Jessica Hawkins’s special magic. I adore her, although she turns me inside out and upside down each and every time I read her deftly written words. She has an uncanny and insightfully observant intellect and can adroitly pen the thought processes of either sex with perfection. I was enthralled, engrossed, totally invested, devastated, elated, gutted, and restored. I didn’t realize I could hold my breath that long. It was exquisite.
