New York Times bestselling author Joshilyn Jacksonan admired writer who deserves to be a household name (Kirkus Reviews)displays her masterful talent in this dark and deliciously addictive tale of domestic suspense. In this game, even winning can be deadly... Amy Whey is proud of her ordinary life and the simple pleasures that come with itteaching diving lessons, baking cookies for new neighbors, helping her best friend, Charlotte, run their local book club. Her greatest joy is her family: her devoted professor husband, her spirited fifteen-year-old stepdaughter, her adorable infant son. And, of course, the steadfast and supportive Charlotte. But Amys sweet, uncomplicated life begins to unravel when the mysterious and alluring Angelica Roux arrives on her doorstep one book club night. Sultry and magnetic, Roux beguiles the group with her feral charm. She keeps the wine flowing and lures them into a game of spilling secrets. Everyone thinks its naughty, harmless fun. Only Amy knows better. Something wicked has come her waya she-devil in a pricey red sports car who seems to know the terrible truth about who she is and what she once did. When theyre alone, Roux tells her that if she doesnt give her what she asks for, what she deserves, shes going to make Amy pay for her sins. One way or another. To protect herself and her family and save the life shes built, Amy must beat the devil at her own clever game, matching wits with Roux in an escalating war of hidden pasts and unearthed secrets. Amy knows the consequences if she cant beat Roux. What terrifies her is everything she could lose if she wins. A diabolically entertaining tale of betrayal, deception, temptation, and love filled with dark twists leavened by Joshilyn Jacksons trademark humor, Never Have I Ever explores what happens when the transgressions of our past come back with a vengeance.

I really liked this one. Lots of twists. I predicted the ending, but was ok with it. I liked the anticipation of how the story would unfold.

Book club aftermath! Happy weekend Littens! This month's book club meeting was at my house and it was such a riot discussing this one! We had a range of feelings including.... "Like watching a Lifetime movie;" "entertaining;" "so bad it's good." Ultimately I think everyone had a lot of fun with this domestic thriller but they recommended the physical book over audio. ?

What's your favorite book club snack?

Cinfhen Yay for bookclub!!!! We serve light snacks too and it‘s always the fresh cut fruits and chocolate covered anything that seems to be most popular. I just discovered coconut dipped rolled dates with cocoa powder and crushed pistachios and they were a HUGE hit with the bookclub ladies 💓 3w

Nute We don‘t have snacks at my book club meetings (January- November), but I might have to introduce the idea. Our gathering in December is more like a party with food, drinks and a gift exchange. Food is always a good idea to me. How is it handled? Is it the responsibility of one member per meeting? Or does everyone bring something? 3w
valeriegeary @Nute right now we just have it where everyone brings a small snack or drink if they want. Sometimes the person hosting will offer something more. Once we had tacos, once sushi, but even without the host providing we usually have a good assortment of things to snack on 2w

With 3 weeks until my wedding, I have come to grips with the fact that I‘m not going to get any more reading done in that time frame. I ambitiously borrowed these books from the library several weeks ago and have been looking longingly at them without having time to pick them up... so I finally returned them. Between wedding organizing and working hard at work in anticipation of being off for the honeymoon, reading will just have to wait.

ElizaMarie Happy early marriage!!! So exciting! 3w
Amiable That‘s the great thing about books —they will be there when you are ready to pick them up again! 🙂 Congratulations (early)! 3w

Okay. So I had to change my weekend reading plans bc one of the women in my book club wants to borrow this month's book from me which means I need to read it now so she has time to finish it by next week which means the library book I need to return in 2 days is going to have to wait which means I'm going to pay a fine bc I'm not going to wait on hold again for that book & auuuugghhh!! Better get back to reading... #bookwormlife #bookwormproblems

I do not go for thrillers but I did enjoy this one. The layers of story going on here and how well Amy learned and played the game was fascinating. Rue was very right when she described Amy as an origami puzzle but that also applied to the book as well. There were so many different moments that unfolded and changed the picture. Books like this make me happy for the rest of the group for making me try new reads. #lmpbc @Schlinkles @bookandcat

My top pick, which I‘ll be starting as soon as I finish my current read, is The Better Liar by Tanen Jones. What‘s in your October pile? What are you the most excited about?

This is one for the Liane Moriarty fans. It felt very The Husband‘s Secret-esque, just not quite as compelling. Don‘t come in expecting a lot of bookish chat; that part of the plot is over and done with quite quickly, and you‘ll learn more about scuba diving than you will about running a book club 😅 Exclusive review for subscribers at http://keepingupwiththepenguins.com/new-releases/ #NewBooks #BookClub #7Days7Covers

I will read ANYTHING by Joshilyn Jackson. That woman can write a Southern page-turner like no one else. And she excels in writing a “deeply flawed heroine just trying to set things right...” well, usually. This was not my favorite of hers. Amy was just TOO flawed. Borderline unlikeable, unforgiveable, trending towards sociopathic. But this book is still so interesting and suspenseful!

Joshilyn Jackson does it again. Amy Whey has a past but it doesn‘t interfere with her present life. Or does it? When Roux comes to town and begins playing her games with the ladies of the local book club, life is never the same. Such a good read that wasn‘t at all what I expected but even better. If you love southern fiction and a good mystery all wrapped up in excellent writing this is a must read.

#unpopularopinion 2.5 stars rounded up to 3. I was glued to The Almost Sisters but had to force myself to finish this one. It‘s full of secrets and some twists, but it‘s #notforme. I think I struggled with this one because Amy wasn‘t a very sympathetic or likable character. I loved her sweet little family and even dealt with some other things that came up, but in the end it all felt 😏.

Went over to Barnes and Noble to participate in the #bookhaul event. Ya know, doing my part 😉. My son and I each got three books! They apparently were all out of free totes, which was pretty disappointing (I was just going to order online but wanted the tote) but we did get BOGO cookies so that sweetened the deal somewhat. I am so excited for all three of my books and was so stoked to discover the Bridge of Clay book is signed!

Jackson had amazing timing and knew how to perpetuate this story without going overboard. I found myself trying to take every free second I had to read this book. I took my time and read slowly and sometimes reread passages because it was so good. If you like Big Little Lies than run and grab this book. I have a lot of praise for that big and I think this one is even better.

What a delicious game of cat and mouse; I was really invested in the game Amy had to play with Roux and I thought it was really well done. I did not see anything about that ending ahead of time! (I never do though, I just enjoy the ride.) This is only my second book by her but now I'm planning to read the rest.
