I'm sitting here stunned, unsure what to write in my review.

No review will do this book justice. This is just a book you have to read. It’s unlike any I have read before.

I've read all of Jewel E. Ann's books and I loved them all. One of the things I love most about her books is that her heroines are always intelligent and strong-willed women.

But this book? It completely blew my mind.

The author says she wanted to push beyond the norm and create something unique. Did she succeed?

"I can't take him from them. I want him...but they deserve him."

Shame, shame, on me. I’m so embarrassed to admit that I didn’t jump into this book because I didn't care for a previous book that I read by this author.


This suspenseful, sexy, snarky and addicting story line was read straight through. The writing is perfection and the reason for this review being short is simple, I’m jumping directly into the next book.

Know this though, I totally want to be the heroine, Jessica Day/Jillian Knigh

“Nothing bled quite like regret."

The blurb sure did pique my curiosity. Although intriguing, it reveals very little. So what did I find out after reading this book?

➦This sexy, dark and funny novel left me pleasantly surprised. The plot was unpredictable, both main and secondary characters were complex and likable, the pace was somewhat slow but kept me in suspense throughout the whole story.

Jackson left to get paint and more alcohol. They both agreed when their new jobs started they would cut back on the booze and act like grownups again instead of college kids during rush week.

★★★★ 4 Stars ★★★★

Hands down one, the heroine in this book is of the best female characters I have come across in forever, and this was one of the most intriguing and complex dark romances I have read in a long time!

End of Day was a brilliant suspenseful read that had equal measures of humour, emotion, sex and drama.

“Nothing bled quite like regret”

The Jessica Day / Jillian Knight character is the definition of SASS.

The woman had everything: snark, tenacity and an awesome sense of humor. Characters in this book/series were outstanding - they're real and they're complex.

I ship Jessica & Luke so so so hard.

And that right there lay my (super duper personal) problem with the book.

You see, there were two timelines in this book: past & present. So we went back and forth between those.

Wow.. I had to get my mind right before writing this review. I felt every single emotion possible and I still have two books to go. I just hope that my heart can take it!

Jessica and her twin Jude are forced to move across the country with new identities after a terrible tragedy.

They soon become Jillian and Jackson. They have the best sense of humor, so when the nosy neighbors think they are married, they go along with it. Even with a sense of humor, they are trained killers and will kill anyone

“Four caskets. Two bodies.”

WOW! What a phenomenal work of fiction. “End Of Day” is the first instalment of the “Jack & Jill” series by Jewel E. Ann and in my opinion, it was absolutely epic. This was the first book I have read by Jewel E. Ann and what a cracker to start with. I still have positively no idea how I am going to review this story, so I have decided to keep it short, sharp and sweet.

RATING: 4.25 “fin de journée" Hearts!! :)

Love takes nothing but gives everything.

End of Day is the sort of suspenseful tale that wastes no time drawing us into the action and putting us on edge as we’re thrust into a unique situation alongside siblings Jessica/Jillian and Jude/Jackson.

“Why?” he whispered.
She planted soft kisses all over his face, stopping at his ear. “Because everybody needs somebody.”

I've never read anything like this book. It had a little bit of everything, perfectly balancing a variety of elements such as romance, thriller, drama, suspense, psychoanalysis, humor, mystery. It was disturbing and twisted - not very dark.

The characters are very three dimensional – especially Jillian, I really loved this character. She is strong, sassy, sexy, athletic, vulnerable, mysterious. The storyline is thrilling and has you on edge, and especially when you ve

So many of my friends have read and love this book (and series) that I had to quit pushing it aside and just read it. And W-O-W, it was like nothing I expected! To be fair, Undeniably You has been the only book that I've read by the author so it subconsciously colored my perception...but in a good way. However, I was in no way prepared for the dark aspect.

The blurb does a great job of filling you in on what's going to happen. Jessica and Jude do indeed watch their own funeral, change thei
“I’m due for an epic mistake.”

Wow! This story is bold, edgy and so addictive. I don't know what I was expecting, but I can assure you, it wasn't this. My mind is blown.

It’s been quite some time, since I’ve read something that's felt so different. In a genre that’s left me burnt-out with overused and tired plot lines, this is a true standout. A breath of fresh air. A book that I won’t forget about anytime soon. A book that has left me no choice but to move right on to the next one.

End of Day is the first book in the Jack and Jill series. I don’t know why I picked up this book. Maybe because I saw my friends give it five stars on Goodreads, maybe because it was on kindle unlimited and maybe after reading “Four Caskets. Two bodies” in the summary I was instantly intrigued.

Reading is one of my favorite pastimes, but when you’re an avid reader who reads well over 100 novels per year, many books tend to blend together. Authors that bring something fresh to the table stand a better chance of producing work that stands out. Jewel E. Ann brought her A-game with End of Day and I can honestly say I’ve never read anything like it. She has woven together a gripping, intriguing, and clever novel that I could not put down.

End of Day is book one in the complex and interconnected Jack & Jill Series. Fair warning: THIS IS WRITTEN IN 3RD PERSON! The story has dual plot lines and every detail matters. Skimmers will not do well with this book. Readers looking for a simple storyline with a sweet, relatable heroine and an alpha hero should avoid this series.

I have never felt so addicted to writing a story. These characters bleed from some strange unknown place inside myself. The Days and Knights are not normal, rela

Overall Opinion: This was not at all what I was expecting. It was dark(ish) and also really funny. I was really thrown off by the 2 different Hs (one in past flashbacks, and one in present tense). While I'm sure that the reason for knowing the story of the past H is going to be important down the road, I was a little frustrated by the back and forth. I enjoyed the h's story with Luke, but I was really rooting for her story with AJ. As for originality of characters and storyline? I th
