*****FOUR STARS*****Just feet away from my gate, I close my eyes and let the tears fall. It hurts so damn bad. I've fallen in love with my best friend and he can never love me back.I've been dying to read this one after having seen the synopsis and reading a couple of my friend's reviews on GR. At the same time I was also a little hesitant because there were some unfavorable reviews as well. What I should have learned by now is that we don't always agree with everyone's opinions. This story was [...]
Title: Only Trick Series: StandaloneAuthor: Jewel E AnnRelease Date:13 april , 2015Rating: 5 starsCliffhanger:. No HEA:(view spoiler)[ Yes (hide spoiler)]Do you know the feeling when you read a book that takes your breath away and creates all those warm and fuzzy emotions that kind of fill to the brim your soul? That you feel so full and so happy and just… damn, you don’t want the feeling to ever go away? It doesn’t happen frequently. The Bookworm High is as rare as pink glittery unicorns [...]
*** 3,5 stars *** Darby is a physician assistant working in the ER where she first meets Trick. They meet again and again by coincidence, Trick reluctantly helps Darby when she needs it, though he doesn't hide that he is very dissatisfied by that fact. He acts like jerk and Derby gives him an earful, he calls her names, she calls him names, they separate in anger. Trick can't stand that she thinks he's an asshole and apologizes, the rest is history, they are best friends from now on. Trick, you [...]
2.5 starsIt was the blurb hooked me. I mean, come on. It's not everyday that you read about an amnesiac, gay, make-up artist for a hero. And for the first 15%, this book lived up to its promise. The angst that came from longing after the unattainable was a great. The conflict, the guilt that Darby feels about her growing feelings for Trick only heightened the angst level of the book. Trick was an enigma and readers get an inkling that something about him isn't quite right. I liked Darby. She's a [...]
"I'll always choose you." This story and rating sadly went downhill for me the more I read and I really just HATED the reveal of Trick's missing years and the epilogue was simply dumb. On the positive side, I did like the heroine she was very funny and well done and the hero and sex scenes were pretty steamy.
★★★★ 4.5 Stars ★★★★This book was such an amazing surprise, I loved the characters and the story so much and I am happy to report I have discovered myself a great new author.Darby Carmichael is a Physician's Assistant working in the ER in a hospital in Chicago when Patrick 'Trick' Roth comes in for some stitches. He's hot and tatted and brooding, so she's all up in that, acting all clumsy and unlike her usual calm and professional self.When a week rolls by and her hairdresser reco [...]
4.5 Breakfast Soulmate StarsTitle: Only TrickSeries: StandaloneAuthor: Jewel E. AnnRelease date:April 12, 2015Rating: 4.5 starsCliffhanger:No HEA(view spoiler)[Yes (hide spoiler)]This is not my first Jewel E. Ann book, but this was a quite a pleasant surprise. I went into this hopeful, but trying not to let my expectations run away with me. After reading Holding You, I saw a whole lot of talent in the storytelling, but unfortunately the story itself I didn't end up loving. What I liked about thi [...]

LIVE ON - amzn/1aWARAs4.5 BFF Breakfast-Soul-Mates Stars!Only Trick was such an all-around great book! I requested an arc of this book strictly from the book blurb. The author was not known to me but something about it just looked different. I took a chance and I'm so happy I did!In a nutshell, Darby Carmichael is a Physician's Assistant working in a busy Chicago Emergency Room when a squirrel comes in needing stitches. Now, I had zero clue what a squirrel was so I'll spoil it as I don't want yo [...]

It literally blew me off.This story was sooooo. interesting!!!The two main characters were lovely The chemistry between them was intense!!!Trick was an intrigue,mystery man who made my heart trobbing like crazy!!!And Darby was sooooo funny!!! I was laughing so hard with her inner talk and her entire attitude Grady and Tamsen were "the" best BBF [...]
4.5 "Squirrel with a Forgotten Past" Stars! If you read the book, you'll understand the reference. If you haven't, then I challenge you to explore this unique read. I have to say the blurb hooked me, though the read was unlike anything I was expecting or that I have previously read. This is one of those reads where the less you know going in, the better, as a number of important factors in the plot are a "trick". You will no doubt be left to surmise one conclusion, only to be intrigued by the cr [...]
Hurray, I finished! I feel like I deserve a Medal of Perseverance for finishing this novel. It has such a strong beginning so I’m still trying to figure out what went wrong. We’re given a quirky and sympathetic heroine in Darby and I really enjoyed the “falling in love with your gay best friend” angle. Trick is a supposedly gay, über hot, guyliner-wearing, tattooed makeup artist. Darby has never had a friend and Trick never lets anyone in. Watching them bond as friends was lovely and fu [...]
DNF @ 36%I'm a little concerned, to be honest. This was my 5th book in a row where I felt absolutely no connection to the characters, and was not feeling the love all. Clearly I am in the minority with this one, as it seems everyone is loving it. Unfortunately I could not continue. I thought the writing was good, and I liked the heroine, Darby, in the beginning. But then something just felt off about her. She claimed she had no friends and is socially inept, but I found her to be kind of a bitch [...]
I am so relieved to be finished with this book. I struggled greatly to reach the last page. I could have finished lastnight but I. Just. Couldn't. I knew at 10% this wouldn't be a book I loved. I really don't like an excessive amount of inner dialogue. This one was done in italics with exclamation marks. Luckily that tapered off as the book went on. The whole pretending to be gay thing--non issue for me. The guy liner-- eh didn't see the point. Doing her makeup so often-- kinda lame. Since her f [...]
Only Trick is an interesting book, with an intriguing premise and a nice set of main and supportive characters, but even though i enjoyed it immensely, it left me pondering some parts and i still have a few questions, plot-wise.Let me explain what the story is all about first, Trick -Patrick- is a bitchy make-up artist with an interesting and dangerous past, a five year gap on his memory and an inclination to hide behind another persona. Darby on the other hand is amazing. What can i say? I love [...]
This was a hard book for me to review. Because being honest about your opinion sometimes sucks. Did I hate this book? No, definitely not, but I didn't love it, or even like it either, it was just okay. Some of the things that didn't work for me are things that might work for other readers.• There were a lot adjectives used within each paragraph which distracted from my reading. It became too flowery and seemed forced.⋯• The female main character's instant sexual attraction to Tri [...]
This was not at all what I was expecting, maybe because I didn’t get a synopsis. I got Trick giving me what he thinks I want to hear. Going in blind with just a snippet from Trick really did make all the difference. I was able to follow the good doctor, Darby Carmichael, along her journey of patient turned friendship turned more. Funny and captivating, Only Trick is a sexy mystery wrapped in intrigue.I really enjoyed spending time with a heroine that refused to be a door mat. She stood her gro [...]
Okay so let’s check out that blurb. Attention grabbing right?Memory loss.Homeless and a recovering drug addict.Hates women.Gay.Falls for a woman.So yeah, I read that and thought I need to read this book. I had no idea what I was going to encounter when starting this. I just knew that there were a ton of answers needed. So I’ll let you take that journey on your own. I will say that I loved the developing friendship between Trick and Darby. She was a bit of an awkward mess and Trick was no dou [...]
3.5 'squirrel?' starsPrior reading this book I had no idea there are so many meanings behind the word 'squirrel'. Squirrel: a person who gives alot of blow jobs, they always have a mouth full of nuts.The Squirrel: the action of inserting your nuts in a girls vagina while fuckingDirt Squirrel: a typically shorter, unkempt, unwashed, tatted-up individual who will more than likely fuck you in the ass and steal your walletFlying Squirrel: Stretching your scrotum and balls over a person's face, and l [...]
JEWEL E. ANN IS UNDERATEDWriting: The books I’ve read by her so far have been wonderful. Her writing makes you forget the real world around you. She creates a world that inhabits you, not the other way around.I did have issues with the directional narration. My mental images were going haywire. Characters: Jewel creates such beautiful, complex MC’s. Trick and Darby were made for each other. Darby needed Trick’s confidence and Trick needed Darby’s healing powers, but they were both afraid [...]
Wow what a wonderful surprise! Loved the story, characters and everything in between!
I feel like I fist-pumped through the whole damn book. It was just so good. So, so, so good.
04/24/2015 --This reminded me of that quilt you wanted to make. It starts out good, then it gets a bit sloppy. You start running out of the pretty fabric and start having to use filler where you wanted the pretty design and you hope it all works out and then well it takes you about a year too long to finish. In the end, its absolutely great only because the damned thing is done. You put it in the back bedroom where few people ever go because you never got all the boxes unpacked in that room or [...]
Wow! Holy shit! This was just spectacular. For quite a while now I've seen raving reviews about this book, but for some reason I kept pushing it aside. What a dumb ass I was. Now I'm so glad that I finally took the time and read it. So many emotions, such a compelling story with amazing characters.Trick and Darby were phenomenal characters. I just loved them. As individuals but most definitely also as a couple. I enjoyed their energy and how they "fed" off of each other. They had so much chemist [...]
This was a novel of two halves for me. The first 58% would have been a 4-star read and I wish the book had ended somewhere around that mark. The remainder made it to 2 stars.I liked: • The premise of Derby, a workaholic physician's assistant who's never had any friends, falling for Trick, a make-up artist she presumes is gay.• I liked both characters, and the dialogue and plot as they become 'best friends' was fun and entertaining.I didn't like:• The drama and angst. This is the first time [...]
10* for the H/h, 4* for the plot and -10 for the epilogue. F*ck me,this is my fav book so far in 2015
*Complimentary ARC received from author*First Jewel Ann read. Blurb caught my eye and so glad I read it! Oh Trick4.5 ★Off the bat, I just want to get 4 things out of the way. First, stay away from reviews. I say STOP right here and just dive into this one. But if you can’t, then who am I to stop you hehe (no, I have no spoilers, I don’t think so anyway, but just saying…) Second, as “lovely” as that cover is, where are the tats??? That confused me a little. Third, the blurb! Nice hook [...]

4.5 Rogue Seduction stars"Massive Muffins"is was good.This little gem caught me by complete surprise. It lured me in with it’s jovial flirtations, and then offloaded a wistful backstory that made sure you tumbled in deep.Patrick “Trick” Roth finds himself in the A&E department of a busy, Chicago hospital. In need of sewing up, he is attended by Darby Carmichael, physician assistant. Darby, usually controlled and the epitome of professional, finds herself severely unnerved by this brood [...]
