Release Blitz & Reviews - Yours to Bare by Jessica Hawkins

Yours To Bare by Jessica Hawkins
Released: December 8, 2016


  Finn 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.  

Halston 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.

Angie's 4 star review

To be honest, I wasn't sure if I'd like Finn's book. He was a bad husband and a mediocre father but he really was just looking for someone to love him and believe in him.

Almost a year after his affair with Sadie ended, Finn is just getting by. His photography is uninspiring, he's been taking dull gigs just to pay the rent and child support. He's not even fighting the minimal visitation he's allowed with Marissa.

But one day Finn finds a journal full of erotic poetry. He becomes consumed with finding the owner. And he finds her. Halston Fox. (Great name). She's just as sexy as he imagined. After discovering they have a connection, Finn also finds out she has a boyfriend. He's not going there again.

Halston gets it. She also has her own issues that made for an interesting storyline. I thought Finn and Halston together were super sexy.

The only thing I didn't like was how little Finn was portrayed as a dad. The only scene he had with his daughter he couldn't hustle her out of the apartment fast enough to get it on with Halston. So we were left with a bad impression of his unenthusiasm for being a dad.

But, otherwise, it was a good story that kept me hooked. I was pleasantly surprised.

Shanda's 4 Star Review

Oh boy, I really wasn’t sure if I would like Finn’s story. After his infidelity with Sadie in Slip of the Tongue I came away not liking him at all. I am glad that I read Yours to Bare. Finn is really just looking to be loved. It was good to get inside his head and heart. After all his mistakes you can see deep down he was lonely and wanted to be wanted.

By chance Finn finds a book of erotic poetry and sets out to find its owner. He is captivated by the writing and feels that the author is feeling the same pain he is. This leads him to the girl that wrote it; Halston Fox. He wants to pursue getting to know her but discovers she has a boyfriend. I liked that Finn was firm in not getting involved again with another couple. I felt like he had grown up a bit but he also didn’t want to get hurt again. Halston discovers what she is missing in her life through Finn and takes a chance on him. But Halston has a lot of her own insecurities and demons that are holding her back in her life.

These two were so steamy together. I loved the photos and journal entries and how it brought them together. It took Halston a while but she finally started to work on herself. In the end I felt Finn still needed to do some more work. I was a bit disappointed with him as a father and I wish this would have had a bit more depth here. All in all I really liked this story, well done.
