Review: The First Taste by Jessica Hawkins

description
Andrew Beckwith has already devoted his life to one girl—and as far as he’s concerned, she’s all he needs. The rough-around-the-edges bad boy left his reckless ways behind six years ago when his daughter Bell was born. To the female population’s dismay, he’s unapologetically single. When Bell’s mother walked out on them years ago, he vowed never to let another woman close enough to hurt them again. 


Amelia Van Ecken isn’t just another woman. She’s an independent, smart, and savvy businesswoman who doesn’t have time for sex, much less love. In the midst of a drawn-out, bitter divorce, all she wants is to bury herself in work. But when sharp-tongued Amelia and stubborn Andrew cross paths, sparks fly—and burn. Two things are obvious in an instant: they want each other, and they’re from different worlds. It’s the perfect formula for an off-the-charts one-night stand. After all, it’s not as if opposites ever attract. 

The First Taste, a standalone spin-off of the Slip of the Tongue.

This is one unputtadownable read, so many good feels and sexy exciting times ahead when reading this book. Jessica Hawkins is an author I only started to read when Slip of the Tongue came out a few months ago . Because come on these covers are beautiful and I'm a cover whore soooo I just signed up on the spot. Slip of the Tongue made me anxious, and nervous which I loved in a different way , but this one I have to say is her best work to date for me. I could not put it down, I didn't even post that many updates on here due to just wanting to dive back in, in every spare moment I had. And I'm not just saying this half heartedly for the sake of it, but this book spoke to my romance addict heart, and gave me butterflies in my stomach that kept me turning the pages throughout until the end.


So what's it about?
Opposites attract they say right? Well it did for Andrew & Amelia. Amelia is a business woman, she owns her own fashion PR company and so doesn't really have time for a relationship, plus she's a tad bitter from her soon to be ex-husband and in truth doesn't really trust men that much because of her past. Meanwhile Andrew is a single dad.. He is edgy, masculine and owns his own business too but obviously in a completely different way.. He builds cars and repairs them. He uses his hands but his daughter is his WHOLE WORLD. Doesn't have much else to give to others and in ways has closed himself up for more, except he's still a man with needs..


So these two embark on a one night of passion and errrrm you might need your other half cause HOLYBATMAN can this girl write good sizzling chemistry.

They both lead busy lifestyles and Andrew especially has concerns of Bell his 6 soon to be 7 year old daughter, so sometimes there's only so much you can give. . Yet they can't resist that taste, they can't resist each other.


Andrew is Endearing, sweet, caring and SEXY AS HELL.. Holy hotness. And well Ameiia was the perfect fit for him even if at first glance they didn't seem the right match. Sometimes you just need someone who pushes you and someone who's different than anything you've had before.

Overall this has everything for any romance reader, it is not an affair read so you need not worry about that. It flowed easily, it's sexy, romantic and a real page turner. And it was great being with these characters the past few days.

Enjoy Xo
