You Don’t Know Jack

You Don't Know JackThe second book to Erin McCarthy’s series New York Girlfriends is You Don’t Know Jack.

Jamie Peters is a free spirit and tends to pick her guys who are down on their luck but from what the psychic told her she would find her soul mate when she has an accident that included food. She will find her soul mate in Jack but he is not who she believes him to be.

Jonathon “Jack” Davidson knew better than to lie to Jamie but he knew she would never talk to him or give him a chance if she found out who he was. The truth will come out quickly and Jack will have to find a way to get Jamie back even if it meant begging.

The sequel was humorous like the first and there was a little more mystery especially with the hippie looking guy who was watching Jamie. The mystery man is revealed and he stays in the plot but at first I thought he was villain with how McCarthy was staging him to be. I liked the other outcome than what I was thinking.

Now Jamie and Jack steamed up the pages throughout the entire book. I liked that it wasn’t an easy affair to start and there was an endless banter back and forth about whether Jamie could give Jack a chance, but it was not annoying. It felt real as its something Jamie’s character would do. Jack was persistent which I liked and what gave him a great quality was how he treated his grandfather.

The series is now over but I still have my eye on her other series I started Fast Track which I am looking forward to continuing.

The Pregnancy Test

MandyThe Pregnancy Test was not ready for the pink strip down the middle of the pregnancy test. She also wasn’t expecting her boyfriend to up and leave saying he can’t deal with another kid. She will find help with her best friends who help her get a new job. Mandy was ready to dislike her boss from all that she heard but she couldn’t, instead she fought the attraction that Damien brought out in her.

Damien needed a new secretary but most only lasted so long, now he had Mandy. He will find attraction with this woman knowing he shouldn’t. He can’t help but be intrigued by her and will take her with him on his week trip to the Caribbean where he will find out the secret Mandy is hiding.

Going for more Erin McCarthy I found the series New York Girlfriends. The Pregnancy Test is the first book to this series. As I have found out from the previous book of McCarthy sex does intertwine in her books among her characters very well. She does the same with Mandy and Damien and it gets a little hot and heavy especially as Mandy is pregnant and has some cravings that only Damien can satisfy.

Now what is cute about this story is how Damien turns protective. He would be the man you wanted to be the baby’s daddy. He is sweet and wants to be part of Mandy’s life along with her little girl. The book gets a little crazy with the psychic and telling these friends their destinies which for Mandy turns out well. Jamie’s future will be told next which looks to be the last book to this series.
