Step right up and meet Jay Fields: Illusionist. Mentalist. Trickster.

I think in triangles. You think in straight lines.
I show you a table and make you believe it’s a chair.
Smoke and mirrors, sleight of hand, misdirection. I trick and deceive.
But most of all, I put on a good show.
The world thinks I killed a man, but I didn't. Bear with me. It’s all a part of the plan.

I put off reading this book, despite the glowing reviews from friends, because magicians/magic just don't really appeal to me. Honestly, the thought of it kind of creeps me out...like clowns or carnies. I don't know why, it just does.

However, my curiosity eventually won out. I decided to listen to the Audible version and see what all the fuss was about. I'm glad that I did.

It seems that all of my creepy magician fears were for nothing. Jas

"Never try to out-trick a trickster."



Six of Hearts is the thrilling, captivating, suspenseful and steamy story of a successful illusionist's epic quest for revenge and true love. The intriguing blurb and the fact that the book was written the author of one of my favorite books of last year, were more than enough motivation for me to dive in to this book the minute it arrived on my Kindle. And once again, L.H Cosway did not disappoint. I immensely enjoyed reading this book and I w

I must say I really enjoyed this one. Of course, being Irish, I had my hackles up ready to criticize if it was not done right. It was. It was done perectly well… Irish authors out there and also non-Irish authors who write about Irish characters “Take Note”! We are normal, we speak with ordinary voices, we may use bad language, but not all the fecking time.

This is fucked up. This is … amazing.

Wow. Talk about being creative and innovative. The stuff L.H. Cosway comes up with in her novels is downright brilliant. Her characters and their lives are always so unique and colorful that I can guarantee you that you haven’t read anything similar before. And Six of Hearts definitely proves that.

LH Cosway has just been added to my favorite authors list! She can write some pretty amazing stories. I know this might not make sense but with her books I have come to expect certain things but always get the unexpected. I love that. Her characters are endearing and the plots are always so alluring.

I did read a few reviews before starting this one and thankfully they were spoiler free because in my opinion the less know about Jay (Jason) and Matilda the better you are.

Six of hearts is a beautiful love story spanning from 1998 to the present day. It's a story about REVENGE and so much more.

23 year old Matilda doesn't have a great history with men, anything more than friends doesn’t seem to work out for her. She’s scarred, both physically and emotionally, from a viscous attack, but despite her history and physical insecurities, she has an incredibly positive outlook. She’s strong, determined to succeed in all areas of her life, and Matilda is a lady who affects

Things aren't always what they seem. At least not when Jay Fields is around. He's the master at tricking people without them even realizing it. When he forms a friendship with Matilda he knows it can be nothing more than just friendship. But Matilda has other plans, and Jay may find himself being the one tricked.



I honestly have no idea what I was thinking by letting this book go unread for so long. I saw the series around on my feed for the longest time and yet I just kept passing it by. So now

When the world thinks he killed someone, Jay is only looking for one thing, revenge. Yet how does Matilda play a part in his plan?

Jay Fields is exactly MY type of book boyfriend. He was cheeky (cheesy grin), sexy (obviously) and sweet (swoon). I really liked Matilda, her sense of humour was so funny. She was an innocent type heroine but I found it so cute.

I love the writing. I love the main characters. I love that the story is something different. The sexual tension was killing me slowly

Well, this is a book bandwagon I'm glad I jumped into. There's been so many positive reviews written about this book since it's release, and to be honest, I tend to stay away from the flavor of the month book because most of the time, I end up disappointed. That's not the case with this book.

This is another one of those hard-to-rate books. The whole story wasn't impressive enough for me to give it 4 stars, but there was a good plot and the writing itself was good enough to get more than 3 stars from me. I had mixed feelings about this one. I enjoyed reading this but I felt like something was missing. Things that happened in this book were a bit off to me.

Overall Opinion: I liked this! I have been putting it off for a good while, and I think it was because I didn't find the whole magic aspect all that appealing. I thought it was handled really well by the author, in that it wasn't a huge focus but it helped add mystery to the H. My biggest complaint is that I wanted more! I was a bummed about the epilogue, but it's probably just that I'm a greedy B ;)
