4.5 Stars I love the books this author comes up with and each and every time I can’t wait to buy it to support this talented woman!! I do have a few things that I didn’t like about this book so I hope no one gets upset but the anticipation of this book, the build up to several…. SEVERAL shocking moments had me covering my eyes and mouth nervous to continue reading, but was well worth the read!! As mentioned previously I love this authors work and reading about Amethyst and Maddox was incredibly sexy, annoying, swoon worthy, but all scared the shit out of me. These two characters had me back and forth throughout the book! I love the way Amo ties several shockingly nail biting moments together flawlessly, but (and here’s where I might get in trouble) I think it may have been too much. **hides** You get so many twists from this book that and I know Amo’s writing but for me it was too much craziness. I live off Amo’s words because she has such powerful things to say and even in her darkest series I find myself so wrapped up in the story I didn’t want to t end…. Unfortunately for me this book was just a few too many things that the last twist nearly had me stopping the book. I am a huge fan, please don’t get me wrong, of Amo and this book but this one aspect I did not find appealing. After getting to the end and seeing how everything was tied together I can understand the extra twist but I almost didn’t finish because I just wanted to scream and yell at Maddoxx and Amethyst! They made me so angry so many times I couldn’t see straight!! My biggest love throughout the book has to be Talon! (Swoon!!!) Thank you for sharing the amazing words you write and I hope what I said doesn’t effect anything about you or your writing because usually I would LOVE all the twists like in your other series but this book didn’t need it. I am so proud of this book and can’t wait for you to share it with everyone!!

Amo Jones... That crazy Kiwi author... Jesus Christ!!! What an ama ...
Amo Jones... That crazy Kiwi author... Jesus Christ!!! What an amazing ride this woman has taken me on, filled with so many twists and turns, I got major book related whiplash. I always have a certain high expectation when reading an Amo Jones book, and every single time, it exceeds it and completely blows it out of the water. It’s not any different with Flip Trick. The main characters, the side characters, the BIG MAJOR TWISTS, loved every single little bit. Amethyst is a woman who has this IDGAF personality and I absolutely loved that about her. The reason for her pink hair is because “screw society and it’s standards and norms.” I adored that! She was one tough B. A perfect compliment to our DELICIOUSLY DANGEROUS Maddox. Uugghhh, that man... I saw sides of him I honestly didn’t think I was going to see. The character development for EVERY SINGLE CHARACTER was on point! Jones doesn’t leave anyone behind. It was so great to see not only the main H/h, but the supporting roles grow, change, adapt. And, that’s one of the things that I always enjoy about Amo Jones’ books. You never get stuck in a story that simply revolves around two people, it revolves around everyone. Flip Trick is going to snatch you up, tape your eyes open, ignore the rest of the world, stay up till 6am, gasp so hard you’re going to choke on your spit, and then release you AFTER you get to the end... or, maybe that just happened to me, but that’s how good this story was. I can’t wait to see what else is in store *cough*cough* ‘MANIK

Amo Jones is an author slowly gaining recognition in Poland. Her "Silver Swan" arouses controversy as well as uncontrolled fascination. If you have read it, you know well what I mean. However, if not, I recommend you to read it soon. And now let's focus on the latest book - "Flip Trick"! Imagine that every day you stay away from parties, you just stick to the side and give into study to keep the scholarship. One day, at the instigation of a roommate, you succumb to temptation and go to an event organized in the area, based on which you are unexpectedly experiencing an adventure for one night. It is for you the first of its kind, so you try to let go. Then compilations start and what do you do with the fact that your one night stand boy is your future-to-be brother in law? Amethyst is confronting such a fact. That's all we get to know from the description. Is it all that awaits us in it? Definitely not! I cannot even count how many threads the author decided to put in one book. We start from one night adventure, move to the relationship between future siblings, problems standing in their way, until ... several years pass. That is why I have a problem with naming the category in which this book belongs, but finally let's name it new adult. Our characters, both Am and Maddox, and his two brothers study at the moment at univercity. That's the main base of actions and their behaviours. Deceptive guys and Amethyst have a past that is either painful or not entirely happy for them. Undoubtedly, we have here very expressive characters, realistic and filled with the desire to put life in their own way. If you've read "The Silver Swan" and "Marionette", you certainly know Amo Jones from her darker side. The feather of two conjugated titles was characterized by mystery, sometimes brutality, darkness and danger. In the case of "Flip Trick" we have the opportunity to try to get to know the author from the other side, more delicate and toned down, but certainly not less interesting! Amethyst is an extraordinary heroine. A pink-haired from a little girl is sucker for skateboarding, who has no respect for people's opinions, is full of sarcasm and at the same time nice. While reading, I liked her a lot, because she is a heroine with whom I would like to be friends in reality. Maddox is her constant opposite - he also does not care about the opinions of others, but he is not very nice. Unless we refer to his relations with the siblings and loved ones. Due to the chosen profession, i.e. the box, he is full of aggression and hot temperament. An extraordinary part of the book is an amazing playlist, which consists of fifty eight song and which takes about four hours! There are such great names as Eminem, Halsey, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Hozier and Drake. Listening to this playlist while reading is pure pleasure! I have to mention that the songs fit into the atmosphere of the book! Slowly approaching the end, because I'm talking and talking, a few words of summary. "Flip Trick" is an unusual and original story about the power of love, peppered with the malice of fate. Believe me, I do not remember that I read a book in which drama pushes the drama! Hardly the heroes have faced one event and you will not see what is coming next! While reading not even for a moment could I lower my guard and loosen myself. I want to recommend you "Flip Trick" because it is a book full of surprises, perfect for the summer!
