*Arc Review* Jack of Hearts (and Other Parts)- L.C. Rosen

  35442720   My first time getting it in the butt was kind of weird. I think it’s going to be weird for everyone’s first time, though.

Meet Jack Rothman. He’s seventeen and loves partying, makeup and boys – sometimes all at the same time. His sex life makes him the hot topic for the high school gossip machine. But who cares? Like Jack always says, ‘it could be worse’.

He doesn’t actually expect that to come true.

But after Jack starts writing an online sex advice column, the mysterious love letters he’s been getting take a turn for the creepy. Jack’s secret admirer knows everything: where he’s hanging out, who he’s sleeping with, who his mum is dating. They claim they love Jack, but not his unashamedly queer lifestyle. They need him to curb his sexuality, or they’ll force him.

As the pressure mounts, Jack must unmask his stalker before their obsession becomes genuinely dangerous…

My Review:

“So, sure, call me “Queeny” if you’re feeling nasty. I won’t hold it against you, as long as it’s said with love.”

Jack of Hearts follows the life of Jack who is sexually out to the world and very proud of it. He has two very best friends who have each other’s backs no matter what.

Jenna (bff) invites Jack to write a sex-help column on her blog and he accepts the offer. After the first one is posted, things start to get weird and he finds himself the target of a crazed secret admirer. As this admirer’s demands become more dangerous and creepy, Jack and his friends band together to stop this sicko once and for all.

I really enjoyed this book. When I read the synopsis, I knew that I had to have this book in my life. This was so much more than a YA story. It was raw, and openly honest about the lives of the millennial world. It sheds a lot of light on what happens to people on a daily basis.

The author holds nothing back and follows things through with a lot of heart. Jacks character is one of my favorites and his sassy attitude brought myself into a better mood.

I will warn you. Some situations in this book were very detailed and graphic. If sex of any kind makes you uncomfortable then this isn’t for you. But I will say that you should go into this with an open mind. The story isn’t all about sex, there’s also a mystery, being comfortable in your own skin, and loving support from family and friends.

This was truly a great read and I wish people will give it a chance. Who doesn’t like a little sass with a great big mystery!?
