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.

The First Taste

To be honest, I kind of went into this story blind. First Taste is the second book in the Slip of thr Tongue series. I didn't read the first one prior to starting this one,  and the minute I finished reading this one, I hade to go get book one . I was unable to put this book down, which means it's probably a good thing that I started it after putting my kids to bed. Jessica wrote an addicting and emotional read that was still sexy and had the right balance of funny moments.

I have a weakness for books with a single parent, especially when the author can actually write the child in a true to age form. Andrew is quite possibly one the most amazing book boyfriends yet. There was so much to love about him. Watching his relationship with Amelia spoke to every little bit of romance that is un my soul. There was honestly not a single thing that I didn't enjoy about this story. Honestly, you need to go and one-click it as soon as possible.
