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 ...

    Maybe more of a 4.5 because I figured out the mystery about halfway through but THIS WAS STILL SO DAMN GOOD. This was hilarious and raunchy and sex positive and I LOVED IT SO DAMN MUCH. If you're looking for a fast and fun read (and can handle reading about anal every other page lmao),...

    Just excuse the terrible pun, while I say this book had an incredible amount of heart. It's a love letter to being a queer teen (by an #ownvoices author too) and it's a call out micro-aggressions and it's an encouragement to kids navigating sex and friendships and highschool and stereo...

    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 ...

    4 stars Jack of Hearts (and Other Parts) was such a fun book, but it also had a great message and a bit of emotion and suspense thrown in. This one was truly unputdownable. I started and finished it in 6 hours which is pretty impressive for me, especially for a physical copy of a b...

    Hi, wow, I LOVED THIS. Jack of Hearts contains such a refreshingly honest, upfront portrayal of sex, without ever feeling sensationalized. But it was still so FUN, and it never felt strictly educational and dry. This book heavily discusses the fetishization and tokenization of the quee...

    "I know it's not the same - gay and asexual - but I want to tell you as someone who thought they were broken, and everyone was staring at them and knew, that you are not broken." Was that one of the best gay books I have every read? Yes. Yes it was. I am so so happy that I picked...

    It's not about making myself less amazing so i blend in. It's about making sure everyone around me sparkles with ther own shade of glitter, that they feel amazing as I do. Vez outra dentro da comunidade de leitores e escritores de YA aparece a discussão sobre qual é a melhor manei...

    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...

    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?...

    I recieved a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. I enjoyed this book so much more than I thought I would! I loved the plot and it was so much darker than I was expecting. I think I had kinda forgot what this was about so I went in to it a bit blind. ...

    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 ...

    ARC kindly provided by Penguin Random House UK Children's via 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...

    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...

    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...

    Thank You Edelweiss for providing me a free review copy in exchange for an honest review Jack of Hearts (and Other Parts) is an important book. It deals with a lot of themes revolving around sexuality, specifically queer male sexuality. I know that a lot of books right now are focus...

    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. ...

    Jack of Hearts (and Other Parts) is a bold and unflinching triumph of a book. Jack knows who he is and he certainly isn't ashamed of that, even if he has to face the relentless school gossip surrounding him. With Ben and Jenna at his side, he's unstoppable, but there are those that wil...

    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?...

    I recieved a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. I enjoyed this book so much more than I thought I would! I loved the plot and it was so much darker than I was expecting. I think I had kinda forgot what this was about so I went in to it a bit blind. ...

    *Thank you to Edelweiss and the publisher for the ARC in exchange for an honest review!* ?Relationships are always made up of these little perceptions of relationships, you know. What you think is friendship is something else to someone else. You can never really know what?s in ...

    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 ...

    ARC kindly provided by Penguin Random House UK Children's via 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...

    "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 ...

    Maybe more of a 4.5 because I figured out the mystery about halfway through but THIS WAS STILL SO DAMN GOOD. This was hilarious and raunchy and sex positive and I LOVED IT SO DAMN MUCH. If you're looking for a fast and fun read (and can handle reading about anal every other page lmao),...

    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 ...

    4 stars Jack of Hearts (and Other Parts) was such a fun book, but it also had a great message and a bit of emotion and suspense thrown in. This one was truly unputdownable. I started and finished it in 6 hours which is pretty impressive for me, especially for a physical copy of a b...

    Hi, wow, I LOVED THIS. Jack of Hearts contains such a refreshingly honest, upfront portrayal of sex, without ever feeling sensationalized. But it was still so FUN, and it never felt strictly educational and dry. This book heavily discusses the fetishization and tokenization of the quee...

    Hi, wow, I LOVED THIS. Jack of Hearts contains such a refreshingly honest, upfront portrayal of sex, without ever feeling sensationalized. But it was still so FUN, and it never felt strictly educational and dry. This book heavily discusses the fetishization and tokenization of the quee...

    "I know it's not the same - gay and asexual - but I want to tell you as someone who thought they were broken, and everyone was staring at them and knew, that you are not broken." Was that one of the best gay books I have every read? Yes. Yes it was. I am so so happy that I picked...

    It's not about making myself less amazing so i blend in. It's about making sure everyone around me sparkles with ther own shade of glitter, that they feel amazing as I do. Vez outra dentro da comunidade de leitores e escritores de YA aparece a discussão sobre qual é a melhor manei...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    So glad this got bumped up my TRB list to read for Contemporaryathon. Fun, sometimes creepy, honest, sex-positive story that I blew through (no pun intended). :) Did I figure out the mystery early? Yes Did I love reading about Jack and think he gives better advice than me? Absolut...

    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. ...

    "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 ...

    Maybe more of a 4.5 because I figured out the mystery about halfway through but THIS WAS STILL SO DAMN GOOD. This was hilarious and raunchy and sex positive and I LOVED IT SO DAMN MUCH. If you're looking for a fast and fun read (and can handle reading about anal every other page lmao),...

    Just excuse the terrible pun, while I say this book had an incredible amount of heart. It's a love letter to being a queer teen (by an #ownvoices author too) and it's a call out micro-aggressions and it's an encouragement to kids navigating sex and friendships and highschool and stereo...

    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 ...

    4 stars Jack of Hearts (and Other Parts) was such a fun book, but it also had a great message and a bit of emotion and suspense thrown in. This one was truly unputdownable. I started and finished it in 6 hours which is pretty impressive for me, especially for a physical copy of a b...

    Hi, wow, I LOVED THIS. Jack of Hearts contains such a refreshingly honest, upfront portrayal of sex, without ever feeling sensationalized. But it was still so FUN, and it never felt strictly educational and dry. This book heavily discusses the fetishization and tokenization of the quee...

    "I know it's not the same - gay and asexual - but I want to tell you as someone who thought they were broken, and everyone was staring at them and knew, that you are not broken." Was that one of the best gay books I have every read? Yes. Yes it was. I am so so happy that I picked...

    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 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...

    So glad this got bumped up my TRB list to read for Contemporaryathon. Fun, sometimes creepy, honest, sex-positive story that I blew through (no pun intended). :) Did I figure out the mystery early? Yes Did I love reading about Jack and think he gives better advice than me? Absolut...

    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. ...

    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 ...

    Jack of Hearts (and Other Parts) is a bold and unflinching triumph of a book. Jack knows who he is and he certainly isn't ashamed of that, even if he has to face the relentless school gossip surrounding him. With Ben and Jenna at his side, he's unstoppable, but there are those that wil...

    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...

    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...

    So glad this got bumped up my TRB list to read for Contemporaryathon. Fun, sometimes creepy, honest, sex-positive story that I blew through (no pun intended). :) Did I figure out the mystery early? Yes Did I love reading about Jack and think he gives better advice than me? Absolut...

    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. ...

    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?...

    I recieved a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. I enjoyed this book so much more than I thought I would! I loved the plot and it was so much darker than I was expecting. I think I had kinda forgot what this was about so I went in to it a bit blind. ...

    *Thank you to Edelweiss and the publisher for the ARC in exchange for an honest review!* ?Relationships are always made up of these little perceptions of relationships, you know. What you think is friendship is something else to someone else. You can never really know what?s in ...

    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 ...

    ARC kindly provided by Penguin Random House UK Children's via 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...

    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 ...

    Maybe more of a 4.5 because I figured out the mystery about halfway through but THIS WAS STILL SO DAMN GOOD. This was hilarious and raunchy and sex positive and I LOVED IT SO DAMN MUCH. If you're looking for a fast and fun read (and can handle reading about anal every other page lmao),...

    Just excuse the terrible pun, while I say this book had an incredible amount of heart. It's a love letter to being a queer teen (by an #ownvoices author too) and it's a call out micro-aggressions and it's an encouragement to kids navigating sex and friendships and highschool and stereo...

    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 ...

    4 stars Jack of Hearts (and Other Parts) was such a fun book, but it also had a great message and a bit of emotion and suspense thrown in. This one was truly unputdownable. I started and finished it in 6 hours which is pretty impressive for me, especially for a physical copy of a b...

    Hi, wow, I LOVED THIS. Jack of Hearts contains such a refreshingly honest, upfront portrayal of sex, without ever feeling sensationalized. But it was still so FUN, and it never felt strictly educational and dry. This book heavily discusses the fetishization and tokenization of the quee...

    "I know it's not the same - gay and asexual - but I want to tell you as someone who thought they were broken, and everyone was staring at them and knew, that you are not broken." Was that one of the best gay books I have every read? Yes. Yes it was. I am so so happy that I picked...

    It's not about making myself less amazing so i blend in. It's about making sure everyone around me sparkles with ther own shade of glitter, that they feel amazing as I do. Vez outra dentro da comunidade de leitores e escritores de YA aparece a discussão sobre qual é a melhor manei...

    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...
