Love. Sex. Destiny. And A Six-Foot-Four Psychic In A Bridesmaid's Dress? Honey, You Don't Know Jack...

Jamie Peters no longer believes in true love. True idiots, true scumbags, true moochers -- these she believes in wholeheartedly, and she's got the checkered dating history to prove it. So she's more than a little skeptical when her cross-dressing psychic tells her she's a

This was my second book by Erin McCArthy and I was looking forward to a great fun read,I like the way EM writes and the banter that goes on between her characters.

In this story we meet Jack (Jonathan) and Jamie, who meet up not by coincdence but because Jack is trailing Jamie to find out if she's the one playing the stock market with her employers money, he also just happens to Jamies housemates brother. Jamie doesn't know Jack from Adam when she bumps into him on the subway, but they end up goi

A few months ago, I read a novella by Erin McCarthy that I absolutely loved, and during that same time frame, many of my online friends had been raving about her recently released Fast Track series. I had also found the first book of the NY Girlfriends series, The Pregnancy Test to be a pretty good read even though it didn't earn keeper status from me, so when I picked up You Don't Know Jack, I was expecting something equally good if not outstanding. Unfortunately, what I

4 so-so stars for this one. The book centers on the idea of destiny and how you have one soul mate so to speak. As the story unfolds you can actually believe the whole destiny concept but there’s an unbelievable sub-story with the heroine’s father that I found annoying. It’s also supposed to be really funny but there are no laugh out loud scenes and at best you get a small smile every so often, sometimes it’s just overdone.

The story is really good at the start right up to the half-way mark. McCa

No i don't know Jack, and i never ever want to, ever! What a DULL catastrophe this turned out to be. I was so excited when i read the synopsis, 'what a fresh approach to a romance novel,' i thought, wrong! i should have given up after reading the foolery that is Beckwit in the prologue and all that psychic love nonsense. What a waste of time, half the plot was wrapped up within a couple chapters, turning out to be inconsequential and oh so weak, leaving an unbelievable almost 25 consecutive page ...more

I have tried quite a few Single-Title romances from a bunch of popular authors but I have never really warmed to the style of them, so I started reading this on with a bit of trepidation. While I can't say that I love it, I did find it relatively enjoyable.

My favourite thing at this book is that the hero falls head over heels in love with the heroine and isn't afraid to say it.

The heroine is quirky and endearing but she constantly pushed the hero away for what seemed like ridiculous reasons and

I was not entertained.

I liked Jack, and I felt that he had an ok reason to lie. I did not like Jamie. She was too inflexible, unforgiving, impractical, illogical. I had no reason to admire or like her. The way he fell for her was unrealistic. There were no interesting conversations. Not once did I laugh out loud. Nothing surprised me or delighted me.

Sexual content: not quantified, as I recall probably moderate, maybe strong. Setting: current day New York. Copyrt 2006. Genre: contemporary romance

The plot summary made it sound like there was quite a bit of deception, espionage, and suspense in this book. In actuality, these elements are abandoned in the first couple chapters and the rest of the book consists of extended sex scenes strung together with some tenuous bits of weak dialogue.

It was a really cute book, but it just seemed to be lacking in some places. I really had trouble seeing why Jamie and Jack couldn't be together, her reasoning was really off and I was expecting something a little more interesting to happen with the company she worked for.

This was a really cute romance. There were some sexy times, but not much, and not super steamy. Sweet, and urgent, but oddly not super steamy. But that's OK! Because the story kept moving.

Jamie is a social worker living in NYC. She's asked for funding from her roommate's family's foundation, but Jack, who is running the foundation while his grandfather is in a rehabilitation facility, has noticed some odd transactional activity that implies something shady is going down where Jamie works. So he

This book was not what I expected. The first chapter got the book off to a good start, but once the characters met, I felt the storyline fell to the wayside. The book focused too much on the sexual relationship between the two main characters, going on for pages and even chapters at a time.

The illegal activity going on at Jamie's charity organization is what really pushed the two characters together and had the makings of a great story. However, it was solved very early on and killed any real a

I am pretty sure I felt brain cells dying as I read this. Luckily, since it was such a short and painfully easy read, I might have salvaged some. But, just barely.

Once in a while I can go for some decent chick-lit. But this, with its stereotypical characters (Plucky Midwestern girl-next-door meets the city! Cantankerous old man! Snide teenager! Snobby WASP mother! Cute, preppy, Upper East Side catch! Gaggle of faceless city friends ala Sex in the City!) and completely preposterous plot lines, is

Jack's thoughts always seemed to be carnal around Jamie, "sweet. Yeah, that was him. Hell, he was thirty seconds away from taking her in the elevator." He's not above groveling when it comes to his woman, "then let me see you." Aware that he was starting to sound like a stubborn fiver-year-old, he changed tones. Let his voice drop. "I miss you, Jamie. My bed was so damn lonely without you last night." Sometimes his thoughts can be forceful, "he would love her, damn it, and she'd learn to like it ...more

Well this book was very interesting, I gave 3.5, not impress with this book. Sorry I am a fan of the author but I wasn't feeling the Leading Character, although the story of her dad was a very nice. Can so much about this one.

I'm seriously becoming an Erin McCarthy fan girl. I haven't read anything of hers yet that was bad.

Loved both books of the NY Girlfriends Series. I hope Erin plans to continue it very,very soon.
Aurian Booklover
Well, the blurb pretty much tells it all. Contemporary romance is not my favourite genre, but Erin McCarthy writes my kind of it. Filled with humor and fun characters, not too much angst and misunderstandings, just a good story and characters you fall for at once. I liked them both so much, and could understand both of them as well, so I was just waiting what would happen next.
Jamie is a social worker, she loves her job and helping people, and she is not looking for the love of her life at all.

Social worker Jamie Peters has had her share of heartbreaks. But they haven't seemed to deter her from the prospect of true love.

Hell bent on saving the world, Jamie focuses all of her time and energy on helping criminals to bring restoration back into their lives. Her constant desire to change everything around her for the best sometimes gets in the way of her own personal life. Turning to a "psychic" friend for help, she learns through a tarot card reading that a chance meeting with her soul m

You Don't Know Jack is the second book in the NY Girlfriends series by Erin McCarthy. I read the first book, The Pregnancy Test, almost five years ago and just found it to be OK. Not terrible, but definitely not great. Fortunately, this second book more than makes up for where the first book lacked. It had humor and was filled with some of the most hot and spicy sex scenes I have read in a long time. Some readers may even categorize this as erotica.

I loved these characters. Jamie and Jack make t

This is one of those books where I felt each cliche eat at my soul.

The tale begins with a cross-dressing psychic telling a group of four women living in NYC (drinking martinis) about their destinies. Our heroine, a hippy-dippy busty country gal, who relocated to the big city and became a social worker due to her big time daddy abandonment issues, naturally believes the psychic's advice and meets, sexes (and eventually luurves, natch) a secret-millionaire hunk with a heart o'gold.

Jamie Peters, on an outing with her roommates one day, makes the mistake of having her fortune told. The psychic predicts she will meet the man of her dreams in an accident involving food and a moving vehicle. Torn between wanting to scoff at the prediction and wondering if the psychic could possibly be right, Jamie continues on with her daily life - albeit with an eye open for a tall, handsome stranger carrying food. Months later, as she steps into a subway car, she collides with Jack Davidson, ...more

I admit I liked The Pregnancy Test better. I thought that book had more of a plot in it than this one did. However, You Don't Know Jack was still a good book to read and I enjoyed getting another look at these four friends (Mandy, Jamie, Allison & Caroline). Jack's grandfather was hilarious and had me laughing out loud. My faults with this book is that I felt it was a bit rushed. The story of the book takes place over a two week time period. I don't care about the falling in love and proposi ...more

One word that could describe this book is... HOT!

This is definitely not for the "young adult" category, with intimate scenes vividly described. It's not profound or bedecked with surprising twists and turns, however it was quite enjoyable and definitely puts it under guilty pleasure!

A dark chocolate of contemporary novels if I may say so myself.


There are only two books in this series and it is a bit saddening to find out that the other two books have not been written due to the author's change i

I liked this book but it wasn't great as the first one in this series. I don't know why but the plot just didn't really click for me and I thought the romance seemed kind of fake. I mean the couple (Jack and Jamie) meet once for the first time and sleep together on the next day after their first date. I didn't like that because that is just not real and I thought it was stupid of Jamie to think that it is okay to sleep with Jack without knowing much about him only because she thinks he is the "o ...more
