Never Have I Ever
Never Have I Ever: A Novel | Joshilyn Jackson
26 posts | 21 read | 68 to read
New York Times bestselling author Joshilyn Jackson—”an admired writer who deserves to be a household name” (Kirkus Reviews)—displays her masterful talent in this dark and deliciously addictive tale of domestic suspense. In this game, even winning can be deadly... Amy Whey is proud of her ordinary life and the simple pleasures that come with it—teaching diving lessons, baking cookies for new neighbors, helping her best friend, Charlotte, run their local book club. Her greatest joy is her family: her devoted professor husband, her spirited fifteen-year-old stepdaughter, her adorable infant son. And, of course, the steadfast and supportive Charlotte. But Amy’s sweet, uncomplicated life begins to unravel when the mysterious and alluring Angelica Roux arrives on her doorstep one book club night. Sultry and magnetic, Roux beguiles the group with her feral charm. She keeps the wine flowing and lures them into a game of spilling secrets. Everyone thinks it’s naughty, harmless fun. Only Amy knows better. Something wicked has come her way—a she-devil in a pricey red sports car who seems to know the terrible truth about who she is and what she once did. When they’re alone, Roux tells her that if she doesn’t give her what she asks for, what she deserves, she’s going to make Amy pay for her sins. One way or another. To protect herself and her family and save the life she’s built, Amy must beat the devil at her own clever game, matching wits with Roux in an escalating war of hidden pasts and unearthed secrets. Amy knows the consequences if she can’t beat Roux. What terrifies her is everything she could lose if she wins. A diabolically entertaining tale of betrayal, deception, temptation, and love filled with dark twists leavened by Joshilyn Jackson’s trademark humor, Never Have I Ever explores what happens when the transgressions of our past come back with a vengeance.

I‘ve always liked Joshilyn Jackson‘s novels. In this one, she ventures out of her typical realm of southern, crazy, dysfunctionalness and tries her hand at more of a suspenseful thriller. I think it worked, for the most part, and I enjoyed this one.

#lmpbc next book finished, being mailed tomorrow! It was an #arc of Jackson's new suspense novel. I found it a good summer read, about a woman who encounters a new member of the neighborhood who starts a Never Have I Ever type game that seems targeted at the protagonist. I'd say 3.5-4 star pick! I was entertained and the twists were surprising for me.

Mehso-so

This mystery is a change in genre for Jackson. You can still feel her personality here, but the formula feels a bit stilted. I prefer her usual books, but I‘m sort of tired of psychological thriller genre, in general. #LibraryThing #EarlyReviewer

Ashley_Nicoletto This ones on my preorder list, but I‘ve also been feeling slightly burnt out on thrillers so maybe it shouldn‘t be. 🤣🤣 1mo

Have you ever done something so bad, so shameful that you would do anything to keep it secret?
What if your worst enemy knew . . . and was determined to expose you?

Amy Whey is proud of her ordinary life and the simple pleasures that come with it. Her greatest joy is her family. Amy‘s life begins to unravel when the mysterious Angelica Roux arrives on her doorstep one book club night.

An unputdownable page turner! Joshilyn Jackson‘s foray into psychological thriller genre fiction perfectly balances the literary voice and complex female characters of her previous books with the artful playfulness of an accomplished writer experimenting with something new. Never Have I Ever is like a stunning sandcastle built by a master sculptor who‘s kicked off her shoes to play in the sand at the beach for an afternoon. So fun!

This twist in Joshilyn Jackson‘s writing is nothing compared to the twists and turns of the dark, delicious, and suspenseful Never Have I Ever. Mom, friend, diving instructor Amy finds her life on the line when a stranger comes to book club who somehow knows every detail of a past long buried. You‘ll gasp, you‘ll laugh, you‘ll never guess what‘s coming next, as both Amy and her blackmailing femme fatale foe Roux‘s secrets run deep as the ocean‘s.

Have you read this book yet?

FULL REVIEW WILL BE ON JULY 30.

A secret from her past and someone who happens to show up that may ruin everything.

What dark secret could Amy be hiding, how does Roux know about it, and how did Roux find Amy?

Roux demanded money, and Amy had it.

But they were playing a game, and you will be on the edge of your seat as you turn the pages and anxiously await how this game ends. 5/5

I wish that I had a shelf full of unread Joshilyn Jackson novels. If I did, I would squirrel myself away for days and just read non-stop. She is in good company with a few other authors that just feel like home to me.

This book feels like a shift from her other stories: edgier, dangerous. But still, GOOD.

Amy leads a comfortable, safe, vanilla life with a solid husband.......
