ARC Review: FLIP TRICK by Amo Jones

I did something I had never done before.

I had a one-night stand.

Then in true me fashion, I left my phone at his house during my desperate venture to escape.

I tried hard to ignore the texts sent to my best friend’s phone...

Amethyst: Sup, these selfies are cute as shit, but your lips looked better wrapped around my…

I did NOT text him back.

I DID vow to never speak of him, or that night again...

I’m Amethyst Lily Tatum, and up until this point, I’d managed to maintain a fairly low-key life. I’m what you would call a socially unacceptable hot mess. Instead of partying, I’m skating, flipping ollie’s over guys who loved to underestimate me. Then I started college, met a wild girl who I would soon call my best-friend, had my first drunk one-night stand, left my phone at his house, and then, when I finally managed to meet my mom’s new boyfriend, I found out that my one-night stand, was now my new stepbrother.

*this is a standalone novel*

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book y'all... this book was THE BEST book that Amo Jones has ever written!! The writing was fluid, the characters were well developed, the plot was moving and evocative, and it was beyond entertaining. I read Flip Trick in one sitting because I could not put it down!

Amethyst was my kind of girl. She had an independent streak a mile wide, she was loyal to a fault, she was fun loving and adventurous, and she was human. She was fiercely strong, compassionate and understanding in most situations, but she was also very vulnerable, especially when it came to Maddox.

Maddox was a bit of a mystery. I still don't completely understand the makings of this man, but he was definitely a sexy person to read about ;) He lived life on the edge, an MMA fighter who wound up in the big time, and he had fallen in love with Amethyst. Unfortunately, living his life out loud drew a lot of drama, making his and Amethyst's happy ending hard to attain. But never once, through all of the obstacles, did I ever doubt his feelings for her.

This story does hurt the heart. I cringed way too many times and wanted to blast Amo at almost every turn. How could she do this to me? How dare she treat my characters this way? Quit playing games with my heart! Seriously, if you've ever read anything from Amo before, this book is vastly different from anything you've ever read from her before. If you haven't read one of her books, Flip Trick would be an amazing start. It's dramatic, entertaining, full of heart and full of guts.
