REVIEW : Only Trick by Jewel E. Ann

“Don’t Look Back in Anger”
In one night, I lost five years of my life. Here’s what I know …

I was homeless.

I’m a recovering drug addict.

My inked skin crawls from lustful eyes.

I have a serious aversion to women.

My gay partner is a home wrecker.

I own a gun and I’m a damn good shot.

I’m a makeup artist, but it’s an insult to my talent.

I’ve never wanted to possess anything except my Ducati … until I met Darby.

Now here’s what I know since that day in the ER when she pieced me back together … nothing—but a few random thoughts.

My new “friend” is distracting, clingy, and obsessed with acronyms, emojis, and phrases like “breakfast soul mates.”

I didn’t want to like her, but she crawled under my skin and swallowed me whole. Now we’re best friends and she’s my new addiction. I'd drink her from a shot glass, snort her up my nose, or inject her into my veins if I could. What I won’t do … is ever tell her that.

She doesn’t know me … I don’t know me. When those missing years come back, I think she will hate me … I think I will hate me.

My parents named me Patrick Roth, and this is my story.

Major thanks to NetGalley for this amazing ARC.

These past few months I have been very lucky to get access to some really wonderful reads from some authors that maybe I wouldn’t have checked out on my usual book run. Jewel E Ann (cute) is now on my TBR list. Only Trick has just stolen my soul.

When a book can make me blush, laugh, gasp and openly sob, I just throw my hands up and say you win. It is just so fantastic and memorable. It left a cute little squirrel mark on my cold dark heart.

Patrick “Trick” Roth. 

You don’t even know! What a complex and beautiful person he is. I mean the synopsis threw me a bit I must say but oh my god he is so much more than I expected.

Darby may be one of the best female characters that I have ever come across. So funny and quirky even when being dealt her full house of horrors.

 "I'm not going to stop until I feel your soul take my last breath."

Darby and Trick as a pair are so magical. I don’t say that often but I give an internal squeal over them. They are so cute! I love them!

The supporting characters in Only Trick are amazing. They are a mixed bag of fun and frightening.

I am going to admit that I was weeping as I finished this book. What an emotional ringer this put me in, so many ups and downs and wtfs that came out of nowhere.

I highly recommend this book, it even has a shout out to Stephen Amell (Arrow), how can you go wrong?! You can't! It’s in my early top 5 of 2015.
