Jack of Hearts (and Other Parts)

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 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,...

    "Lord save me from straight people" This was fucking fabulous. I have to admit-- going into Jack of Hearts I thought it might be one of those books that's IMPORTANT? but a fairly average reading experience. I love the idea of fabulously gay, but fabulously gay doesn't sound lik...

    This book is like a hug that comes with a slap on the ass (in the consensual flirtatious sexy way). It's the sex ed class you didn't get in high school, positive and frank and honest without ever being didactic. Having this book as a teen would have literally changed my life, and also ...

    If you read the blurb of this book, you will know what it is about. A teenage gay boy, his friends, a sex column, and a stalker. I liked the blurb and wanted to read this book ever since I came to know about it. While this book is like any other YA book talking about teenage life's...

    I'm telling you now that from this book's release date onward, any discussion of sex in YA (and especially in queer YA) that does not include this book is invalid. Also, I blurbed this! Here's what I said: "Bold. Unfiltered. Supportive. Funny. Boundary-shattering. There aren't enoug...

    This book was blunt, honest, unfiltered, and brilliant! And it is going to make some people absolutely CRAZY! What??? A book all about sex for young adults? and gay sex at that??? What??? A honest open discussion about sex??? Yes! And seriously as a mother of three I would strongly ...

    3.5 stars. What a conundrum. For about 36 hours, I only put this book down when life required me to. And I never did figure out why it had that effect on me. But, something was there, right? Something made me need to know what was going to happen. Something endeared the characters t...

    Jack is a high school student who is asked by a friend to write a column for an online blog. He becomes known unofficially as Jack of hearts (and other parts). He's a gay teen who isn't interested in settling down. He loves listening to the girls gossiping about him, even if some of th...

    This is going to rile up readers who don't want teens to read about sex and more, who don't want teens to read a raw, honest book about gay sex and a gay teen boy who not only loves sex but also wants others to enjoy it, too. It's a book about toxic heterosexuality and the ways white w...

    "Lord save me from straight people" This was fucking fabulous. I have to admit-- going into Jack of Hearts I thought it might be one of those books that's IMPORTANT? but a fairly average reading experience. I love the idea of fabulously gay, but fabulously gay doesn't sound lik...

    This book is like a hug that comes with a slap on the ass (in the consensual flirtatious sexy way). It's the sex ed class you didn't get in high school, positive and frank and honest without ever being didactic. Having this book as a teen would have literally changed my life, and also ...

    If you read the blurb of this book, you will know what it is about. A teenage gay boy, his friends, a sex column, and a stalker. I liked the blurb and wanted to read this book ever since I came to know about it. While this book is like any other YA book talking about teenage life's...

    I'm telling you now that from this book's release date onward, any discussion of sex in YA (and especially in queer YA) that does not include this book is invalid. Also, I blurbed this! Here's what I said: "Bold. Unfiltered. Supportive. Funny. Boundary-shattering. There aren't enoug...

    This book was blunt, honest, unfiltered, and brilliant! And it is going to make some people absolutely CRAZY! What??? A book all about sex for young adults? and gay sex at that??? What??? A honest open discussion about sex??? Yes! And seriously as a mother of three I would strongly ...

    3.5 stars. What a conundrum. For about 36 hours, I only put this book down when life required me to. And I never did figure out why it had that effect on me. But, something was there, right? Something made me need to know what was going to happen. Something endeared the characters t...

    This is going to rile up readers who don't want teens to read about sex and more, who don't want teens to read a raw, honest book about gay sex and a gay teen boy who not only loves sex but also wants others to enjoy it, too. It's a book about toxic heterosexuality and the ways white w...

    Okay, getting declined for this will be the most heartbreaking rejection of the year for me. Like, for real. Update: Declined. Figures. :/ Well, regardless this is going to be one of my most anticipated books this year for sure. ...

    Jack of Hearts (and Other Parts) is bold, ballsy, and honest! This book is sure to get readers thinking and talking. Jack Rothman is a rich, gay, New York private school-er who loves sex. He is--in his own words--a slut. He likes sex, has sex, and talks about sex. Jack writes Jack...

    I refuse to accept the normalization and promotion of BDSM in young adult fiction. Plus, high school students having group sex and threesomes? I don't know who greenlit this book, but it's an indication of some very troubling trends, in my opinion. ...

    4.5 STARS - I have been wanting to read this book for months and it definitely surpassed to my expectations. I love reading high school stories but for me they are truly hit or miss. While I enjoy the high school/team setting I find many of the stories I read feel contrived or missing ...

    DNF Before we get into this negative review, let me acknowledge how awesome the cover is. Yes! I love it! A cover such as this one would not have been approved 20 years ago ? and a book such as this one not published 10 years ago. Incredible. I also very much appreciated Jack?...

    ARC kindly provided by Penguin Random House UK Children'svia NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thanks! ETA: I've seen a few reviews accusing this book of promoting risky behaviour among teenagers. To be honest everything about this book is so over-the-top that I hadn't e...

    The ARC of this book was provided by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. 3.75 stars I was so happy to read this book, it's like a breath of fresh air in the YA world. Most of the time sex in YAs is a taboo or something that is just slightly mentioned. ...

    This certainly is the kind of book that makes you say WOW! And not just the language, the cover design and also the idea behind it. The bravery to bring this idea to the publishers. Kudos! I don't care what the critics think, I think we need these kinds of books. And I don't want to...

    This book is one that I wanted to read from the second I heard about it, and when I got approved for an ARC I actually squealed with delight. A YA novel that openly discusses gay sex? Sign me up. When I actually had the opportunity to read it I was worried it wouldn't live up to its pr...

    Not a major fan of the cover, but excited to pick this one up! ...

    Jack of Hearts (and other parts) BY L.C. Rosen Little, Brown and Company, 2018 Five stars Jack Rothman could be my grandson; but reading ?Jack of Hearts? by L.C. Rosen, I felt myself a teenager once again. Jack is everything I never was as a teenager ? everything I couldn?...

    17 year old Jack makes no apologies for who and what he is...he lives his life the way he chooses, has plenty of money, likes sex...Jack I liked. He's bold and fearless, wears make up and has plenty of rich young friends BUT suddenly things start to go wrong and someone doesn't like ho...

    I feel really conflicted about rating this, so I?m settling with 3.5 stars for now. I liked Jack and the excellent discussions and gay rep, but there were significant parts of this story that fell flat. The stalker/mystery storyline felt so intense, yet was resolved oddly. I also fig...

    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. Review also on Reads Rainbow Galley provided by publisher I had kind of mixed feelings about this book. On the whole, I liked it, but there were distin...

    *I would like to thank Netgalley and the publisher for providing me with an eARC in exchange for an honest review* This is the sex positive novel that we need in our lives. This novel follows the story of Jack who is an out and proud gay boy who has a reputation as the school slut....

    This story took a much different and darker turn than I was expecting. Talk about catching me off guard. Bravo. ...

    *4.25 Stars* I got a physical ARC at Deptcon 4 because Deptcon is the best. I enjoyed this book. It wasn't perfect but the characters were endearing and the intrigue kept me on my toes. Actually, I was just plain scared at times. I got into it a bit doubtful but as I read, the c...

    4.5 Stars! I think this book will make a big difference to a lot of people. ...

    I received a free copy of this book at BookCon, otherwise I would not have read it. I think there is a fine line between not shaming teens for their sexual activities and encouraging them to engage in risky situations. This book went too far to the encouragement side without having...

    3.75 (: Thank you to Edelweiss and Little Brown for the advance copy of this book. I have been intrigued by this synopsis since the moment I heard about it. It?s not often that a gay teen is the main character of a young adult book, and it?s even more rare that that teen is so u...

    This book is like a hug that comes with a slap on the ass (in the consensual flirtatious sexy way). It's the sex ed class you didn't get in high school, positive and frank and honest without ever being didactic. Having this book as a teen would have literally changed my life, and also ...

    The ARC of this book was provided by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. 3.75 stars I was so happy to read this book, it's like a breath of fresh air in the YA world. Most of the time sex in YAs is a taboo or something that is just slightly mentioned. ...

    This certainly is the kind of book that makes you say WOW! And not just the language, the cover design and also the idea behind it. The bravery to bring this idea to the publishers. Kudos! I don't care what the critics think, I think we need these kinds of books. And I don't want to...

    This book is one that I wanted to read from the second I heard about it, and when I got approved for an ARC I actually squealed with delight. A YA novel that openly discusses gay sex? Sign me up. When I actually had the opportunity to read it I was worried it wouldn't live up to its pr...

    "Lord save me from straight people" This was fucking fabulous. I have to admit-- going into Jack of Hearts I thought it might be one of those books that's IMPORTANT? but a fairly average reading experience. I love the idea of fabulously gay, but fabulously gay doesn't sound lik...

    This book is like a hug that comes with a slap on the ass (in the consensual flirtatious sexy way). It's the sex ed class you didn't get in high school, positive and frank and honest without ever being didactic. Having this book as a teen would have literally changed my life, and also ...

    If you read the blurb of this book, you will know what it is about. A teenage gay boy, his friends, a sex column, and a stalker. I liked the blurb and wanted to read this book ever since I came to know about it. While this book is like any other YA book talking about teenage life's...

    I'm telling you now that from this book's release date onward, any discussion of sex in YA (and especially in queer YA) that does not include this book is invalid. Also, I blurbed this! Here's what I said: "Bold. Unfiltered. Supportive. Funny. Boundary-shattering. There aren't enoug...

    This book was blunt, honest, unfiltered, and brilliant! And it is going to make some people absolutely CRAZY! What??? A book all about sex for young adults? and gay sex at that??? What??? A honest open discussion about sex??? Yes! And seriously as a mother of three I would strongly ...

    3.5 stars. What a conundrum. For about 36 hours, I only put this book down when life required me to. And I never did figure out why it had that effect on me. But, something was there, right? Something made me need to know what was going to happen. Something endeared the characters t...
