Games Can Be Deadly Stars Amy has secrets she has spent years hiding When new neighbor Roux shows up, determined to shake everyone s skeletons out of their closets, Amy finds herself drawn into a deadly game of cat mouse Who hasto hide Who hasto lose Who will win Amy or Roux I love a good twisty thriller and boy did Joshilyn Jackson deliver with the twists here Just when I thought I had things figured out another juicy tidbit came into light The pace was a bit slow but it never bothered me here it felt a bit like Jackson was playing a game of cat mouse with the reader I was hooked and determined to figure things out I never did I loved Amy She was full of layers loving one minute and tough the next She was smart, no nonsense quite a formidable opponent for Roux Roux was the kind of character that had me shaking my head in disbelief I love an engaging female villain and Roux was exactly that The two of them together were pure entertainment One twist after another and an ending that left me shocked in the best way Well done Ms Jackson, well done My reviews can also be seen at was a FANTASTIC novel One of my favorite reads this year.Forty two year old, Amy Whey has a great life She has a wonderful family and a terrific best friend She finally feels at home for the first time in her life.Tuesday, May 28, 1991, was the night that Amy s life, as well as many others,

reads this year.Forty two year old, Amy Whey has a great life She has a wonderful family and a terrific best friend She finally feels at home for the first time in her life.Tuesday, May 28, 1991, was the night that Amy s life, as well as many others, changed forever After that night, Amy tried a variety of ways to stuff her feelings Eventually, it was diving that saved her Being underwater was the only place she could forget if just for a little while Then Amy met Davis and his daughter, Maddy They became her family, eventually adding baby Oliver to the mix Finding a new best friend, Charlotte only added to Amy s happiness.The last seven years have been amazing, but there are times she wonders if she should have told the people she loves about her past.Amy s life is about to become VERY complicated Is this where the book club meets Book club is well underway when the doorbell rings Amy opens the door to a pretty woman with beautiful dark hair The woman s name is Angelica Roux, Roux for short She is a single mom with a teenage son and they are staying at the Airbnb next door She thought she would come to book club to meet some new people.Amy never thought that book club would be the place where her life would start to unravel Roux introduces herself and the other women immediately start trying to impress her However, Charlotte, who is the leader of the group is far from impressed Roux insults the book, sits in the host s chair, and mixes drinks like she owns the place She basically hijacks the evening.Soon, Roux, has the women drinking shots and playing a game called, Never have I ever The game starts out innocently enough, but then one of the women confesses something that hits very close to home Suddenly it doesn t seem like such a harmless game Roux says that Amy would win this game hands down She seems to be indicating that she knows something about Amy s past Amy has had enough and tells Roux to get out As Roux is leaving she tells Amy that they need to get together, that they have a LOT to talk about.Amy has no intentions seeking Roux out, but she is worried She tells herself that it s impossible for Roux to know about her past Truly impossible But when Roux comes looking for her, Amy s instincts are proven right Roux wants something from her and if she doesn t get it, she s going to make Amy payHow will Amy protect the precious life she s built I LOVED this book The story is told from Amy s point of view Most of it takes place in the present, but we do learn about Amy s past and what happened that fateful night.Filled with fascinating characters, an engaging plot, and twists that I NEVER saw coming I thought the story was well paced with perfect timing, and I loved how it all came together in the end.Joshilyn Jackson is a tremendous storyteller, and I found this book so hard to put down It held my attention completely.A thrilling story about memory, betrayal, guilt, lies, love, friendship, and revenge.I highly recommend this incredible domestic suspense novel I d like to thank William Morrow for providing me with a copy of this novel All opinions are my own I was wrapped up in these characters from the first chapter The characters popped off the page with their strong personalities and I wanted to know what they were all about It was like watching a movie and things were unraveling fast.It starts with a mommies book club and the newest member is a doozie All the drama starts when this newest member, Angelica Roux, breaks out the drinks and engages the club mommies in a revealing game of Never Have I Ever This will begin a series of ev I was wrapped up in these characters from the first chapter The characters popped off the page with their strong personalities and I wanted to know what they

club Insert shocked Amy is on high alert with Roux s game and feels threatened by what it could cost her She has worked hard to cover her past Who is this new book club imposter What is it she wants Lots of eye popping, heart racing moments that I never could have predicted No Never I loved the twisted game they were playing and it was nuts The characters are center and the skillful plot moves along with the fascinating tale of greed and guilt.Bombshell secrets will drop, blackmail and dangerous gambles will occur, each player digging up dirty laundry until the final chapter.Did I mention page turner I enjoyed this entertaining read Highly recommend to fans of drama, what would you do scenarios and plenty of gasp worthy twists Thanks to the publisher for my early copy OUT on JULY 30, 2019Blog review closer to publication I opened the door to a stranger, standing easy with the fat moon rising behind her, practically perching on her shoulder She was the pretty that s on television symmetrical features, matte skin, and that kind of long, slim, yoga body that still made me feel self conscious about my own She smiled and I had no premonition as I smiled back She didn t look like my own destruction to me The past is never dead It s not even past William Faulkner Re I opened the door to a stranger, standing easy with the fat moon rising behind her, practically perching on her shoulder She was the pretty that s on television symmetrical features, matte skin, and that kind of long, slim, yoga body that still made me feel self conscious about my own She smiled and I had no premonition as I smiled back She didn t look like my own destruction to me The past is never dead It s not even past William Faulkner Requiem for a NunSometimes it comes crashing back in dramatic fashion, banging on the door, in a moonglow of dark intent, and demanding that attention be paid, and paid, and paid Roux, a new neighbor dropping in on the local moms book group, must have parked her broom somewhere out of sight The ladies would not really get around to discussing Edith Wharton s House of Mirth, even though at least some of them had surely read it Those who had might appreciate that an evening supposedly dedicated to a book about the hypocrisy of social s in the high society of late 19th century New York would spark a battle royale in which the secrets of their small society were at risk of exposure The model level stunning Roux is a charismatic presence, everyone wanting to earn her approval She encourages excessive consumption of alcohol, starts a souped up variation of the Never Have I Ever drinking game, assigns everyone individual spirit animals, and begins harvesting secrets But this is collateral entertainment Roux is there for one person only and lets her know in no uncertain terms You don t want to play That makes no sense, she said, and her spirit animal was asinister version of the Cat in the Hat Hers was feral, invading to unpack trouble in a house, where no mother would ever come home In this house I was the only mother, and I had let the trouble in I d swung the door wide for it, hoped it had the right house, even Because, Amy C mon You would win this I m thinking you got these low stakes bitches on lockdown Amy Whey has a good life She has a happy marriage, a beautiful baby, a pretty sane thirteen year old stepdaughter, and a successful career as a scuba instructor, here in Pensacola It had not always been so One spell of adolescent foolishness had changed what had been a decent life into something else Half her high school a blur, her relationship with her parents ruined, disgrace brought down on her family Wastrel years followed, with self destruction denied its ultimate prize when Amy was introduced to scuba, Buoy meets girl in which she found a joy that was spiritual as well as physical, and a way forward to having a life But Roux knows Amy s secret, and that life is in mortal peril All Amy has to do to keep that life is give Roux every cent she has and then wonder when she will be back forJackson diving under the salt pier on Bonaire image from The Big ThrillIt turns out that Amy is not entirely sunk by Roux s threat, but rises to the surface, gasping for air and finds a way to shore The benefit of having kept secrets all her life is having a pretty decent feel for how to go about uncovering the secrets of others It requires some pretty bold action, but having guts, plus an excellent brain, gives her the wherewithal to give Roux a serious run for her money Amy is no goody two shoes, even since she began on herrighteous path She has made decisions about how much to reveal of herself, of her history, particularly that dark bit, to the people closest to her This makes Amy a particularly relatable character I mean don t we all have things in our past that have somehow never made it into conversation with the people we are close to now Little pockets of privacy we can rue in private, at our leisure, presuming we have failed to remove them from our memories entirely Ok, well then kick it up a few notches into felony territory Nonice neighborhood Maybe nohusband and possibly baby What would you do to keep that secret from becoming common knowledge What lines would you cross What further crimes might you commit Amy faces many moral forks in the road ahead It was sweet to see Jackson work Amy s feeling for diving into how she sees the world, and the particular form of misery she faces in Roux I knew from long experience that I only had to wait the feeling out People say, I don t know how she lives with herself, but every single one of them was living with their own worst thing, just fine No one walks around holding their ugliest sin in the palm of their hand, staring at it Our hurts are heavy and we let them sink Every day they drift lower, settling in murky places where the light can t reach All I had to do was wait My bad would fall down into the darkness again, because the bad things always do The book alternates chapters, up to a point, between the contemporary blackmail duel and the events of Amy s adolescence We get to know what there is to know, bit by bit, and with some nifty misdirections One of the truly fun things about this book is Jackson s ability to keep ending her chapters with twists and hooks that make you want to read just onechapter Read, hook, repeat.Another fun element is how Amy comes to see Roux, ironically, as the only person who really gets her I couldn t call her I was not such a beaten dog that I would belly creep for petting from the hand that held the whip I bit and swallowed, tearing at the meat What did it say about me that Roux was the only person I could be honest with Only she saw me down to my core, dark and deep, bitter as wormwood All the things that made me hate myself, she actively admired, and she was the only one who saw me whole Roux keeps finding herself surprised that someone she had thought would be an easy mark had turned out to be a tough competitor in a game of spy versus spy Frenemies on steroids There is a nice scene in which Amy gives Roux a book to read, Stephen King s Hearts in Atlantis, maybe hoping she would, on reading it, consider where she had gone wrong, maybe rue her current life gig The author here is reminding those who are familiar with the book that many, many of us have not always lived our best lives Jackson had an interesting approach to her scene writing, informed by her other career, that explains why her dialogue makes sense, and feels credible After I draft a scene with, say, five people in it, I do onerevision per character I work my way through the scene through each point of view, so even if a character has only one line, it comes out of an arc and a train of thought and a motivation that I understand completely It makes a difference Even if each character s motivation is not explained to the reader, if I know the arc, if their reasoning and their individual desires are clear to me, that character s actions feelauthentic I learned to do this working in summer stock theatre I did a scene where my character sat silent on stage and watched actions unfold for 15 minutes and then said one line But to deliver that line authentically, I had to feel every feeling and think every thought, and react to every moment that happened I try to do the same in novels from The Big Thrill interviewThis is in addition to doing some serious hands on research into scuba diving There are several elements in Never Will I Ever that readers familiar with Jackson s writing will recognize Redemption is a frequent theme Amy is certainly trying, in addition to besting Roux, to make up for what she had done Secrets are a favorite central pillar Amy has a few, and so does Roux, but they are not alone And Jax can usually be counted on to look at the construction and disassembly of families In this one, Amy has forged a new family for herself with formerly married Davis, and his daughter, Madison, adolescents seem a mandatory element, so check, and Roux arrives with one of her own, so double check while her original family seems to have pretty much dissolved Jackson s books can be counted on to present at least one mystery, which is exposed to the light in a final reveal twist A pretty killer one here Somehow Jackson uses these familiar parts to construct a novel that feels quite different from her earlier work, while somehow still managing to remain engaging and satisfying Highlighting the what are they hiding elements makes it feellike a thriller mystery than her prior work, although there was no shortage of mystery in those I have one gripe about the book There is a point at which Amy misleads Roux by telling her something that was not true, hardly an unreasonable approach when dealing with the criminal element But not having been clued in by the author makes Amy, who had seemed pretty reliable, an unreliable narrator It seemed inconsistent.But that s a quibble, really Bottom line is that I found Never Will I Ever to be an addictive page turner of a thriller, by a reliable author at the top of her game A terrific beach read, but with plenty of meat on those bones to make it an excellent book club item as well Strap on a tank, rub some spit on your mask, slip into some flippers and take a long step over the side of your boat Never Will I Ever will take you for a time out of your world and let you float about in another for however long it takes you to read it Dive in Look around You won t be sorry Review
