When one is privileged to read books that leave an indelible mark, you attempt to prolong the reading of it. These opportunities are rare-once or twice a year finds, books such as It Ends with Us or The Gravity of Us or 53 Letters for My Lover and now, this book.

Look the Part is filled with emotional and heartfelt scenes, perfectly balanced with some serious laugh-out-loud moments. In all, Jewel exceeded my expectations.

Funny thing how when one of the most kick-ass authors in the romance genre releases a new book, nothing matters to you anymore. You don't care there’s a dead wife. You don't care that one of the most fantastic heroes ever (Sorry, Flint) loved his dead wife beyond words.

All of a sudden, you stop being picky. All your triggers, pet peeves and things you usually avoid like the plague vanish into thin air.

Why is that?

Maybe it's because you know you can trust her. You know you will finish h

My initial thoughts about the book before reading it

- Single dad
- Didn't let his wife drive while he was drunk and had an accident in which he and his son survived but his wife died
- Lives a life of guilt with his autistic son
- Has one-night stands but doesn't do relationships
- Thinks of his dead wife all the time
- Falls for the heroine slowly (enemies to lovers)
- Heroine is a much too positive woman (annoying maybe?)
- Unplanned pregnancy

I don't think I will be able to forgive this hero and ro

Overall Opinion: I really enjoyed this! I tried really hard not to get my expectations too high for this one, because I hate that disappointment I get when I do that sometimes -- But with that cover and blurb it instantly sold me! I have a 13 year old son with Asperger's syndrome/high functioning autism, so this was a joy to read about the perks and struggles of parenting such a child. Don't get me wrong -- every kid on the spectr

We’re that moment of light and whisper of hope that sprouts from the barren ground after the end of the world. It’s not him. It’s not me. It’s us. We defy the laws of existence. We are forgiveness and redemption. What we have is not a victory against all odds, it’s the inevitable.

There are a few things that can be said of Jewel’s books. They are unique and phenomenal. You can just tell she puts a lot of her soul into her writing and that she’

LOOK THE PART: is a full length standalone contemporary romance novel by Jewel E. Ann. Spoken in ‘Dual Perspectives’

The ‘Prologue’ grabbed my attention straight away, a birthday celebration ended tragically, a man left broken and shattered. A man locked in the past even though ten years have gone by he's still paying for the sins of his past.

In this we meet thirty five year old Flint Hopkins, a hot uptight lawyer with a long suffering assistant Amanda that gets fired on a daily b

I can easily say, I think this one will be one of my top reads this year. This book stole my attention from the very start. It pulled my heart in literally all directions and let me tell you, holy emotional overload..... I was high, I was low, I was in love, I hated, I laughed, I cried, I became impatient, I became overwhelmed, and holy hell did I love

It took me roughly 10 days to come up with something to write that would do this story justice. Right now, I know there is nothing that I can say that will illustrate the captivating beauty and pain that leaked from these pages. There is nothing that I can type that will give you a glimpse of the feels, the heart-rocking emotions, the utter devastation, and the sublime bliss that I found in this book. But I’m going to try anyway.

This book deserves 6 stars!!

I was literally blown away by this novel.

Look the Part was my first book by Jewel E. Ann. But it won’t be my last.

This book was A M A Z I N G!!

Everything about this book was perfection. From the story to the characters. Especially the characters. The author managed to write two fantastic main characters, as well as a supporting cast that blew me away. The dialogues, the teasing, the never ending good-natured back and forth had me chuckling and laughing out loud. Ellen

This was a very solid read.

I feel like a lot of people have already said it all in their reviews and I don’t have anything new to add except to say that I enjoyed it a lot.

The writing is very good. The plot, dialog, interactions.. everything felt very realistic. There was nothing predictable or cliched but quite the opposite.

I also have to mention that I liked the characters and not because they were perfect or acted the way I’d want them to act but because they have a very real vibe to
There’s a reason why Jewel E. Ann is one of my go to authors cause she never disappoints. I’m pretty sure that I always get a unique and highly emotional story. I was introduced to Flint Hopkins in the book called One and was instantly mesmerized by him. Look The Part can easily be read as a standalone.

Flint Hopkins and Ellen Rodgers carry this book beautifully. They crawled into my heart the moment they appeared in Look The Part. Their interactions and chemistry are incredible. Talk about chara

My Goodness, I laughed so bad while I was reading it. :) I LOVED Ellen & Flint's sense of humor so much. And don't let me started with their chemistry. It was hot as f@ck! :D

And this book is one of my favorites now and I highly recommend it to you. Trust me, you won't be regret for reading this book. <3

Jewel E. Ann is another NTM author that I lucked out on. I really loved this book and it is the first FM book I have read this year that I have liked. LOL

I was worried that this would be depressing and Flint hanging on to his dead wife's memory would put a dark cloud over most of the story. It didn't. Did he continue to feel guilt, pain, and love for his wife? Yes. Did he let it get in his way of moving on with Ellen? Yes. BUT it was complicated and messy and right for this story. Why?

When I saw this one on GR it immediately grabbed my attention. Awesome blurb means awesome book right ?? Thankfully in this case it did ;)

Once I started reading "the prologue" there was no stopping until I was finished.

This book starts out with a tragedy, leaving behind a broken broody jerky favorite :P

Flint Hopkins is a single father, and a (stick in his ass) lawyer. I especially loved how he kept firing his assistant (no worries, you will like this part too).

Flint only excists to do
Well, that was a phenomenal surprise. Before I started this I wasn't too sure about Ellen from the blurb. Then I started it and ... I fell in love, totally and utterly. Fell in love with the characters - Ellen, Flint and Harrison as well as the side characters who were fantastic, fell in love with the story, fell in love with the writing, fell in love with the honesty and realness of the characters. There is nothing I can find fault with or didn't like. Not a thing.

This is my first read by Miss Ann. I am conflicted rewarding this book. The banter is intense and funny. Quick and sassy. I like that.

Now, I do not like the heroine. Ellen was fun and free spirited at first. Then she turned into this monster who like to invade stranger's personal space by touching. Which is weird. Miss Ann does not really explain the reason why Ellen has this habit to touch.

I also do not like Harrison. I know he has some disability but he is a brat. That left me with Flint. He

I passed this few months ago after reading the blurb. I had recently read Ann's Transcends duology and that had the main lead with a child. Here too male lead has a child and I thought this would be similar to that one, hence I was not very excited even after reading good reviews. But then my friend Iniya picked up this one for our weekend romance read after I gave her few suggestion, yup I included this in that little list. And just like Transcends books this one also surprised me.

I have heard nothing but amazing things about Jewel E Ann, so I decided to pick up one of her books!

From the start, Flint is a broken man who is trying his best to raise his son, Harrison, who is on the spectrum. I definitely think that Harrison was my favorite character of the book. He forced Flint and Ellen to talk to each other, and Flint couldn't ignore Ellen just because she made him feel things he didn't want to feel. Their banter and chemistry w

Ladies and Gentlemen, I would like to introduce you to my first five-star book of 2018. Look the Part is a massive gem in author Jewel E. Ann’s impressive collection of written treasures. This book is so stunning it took my breath away. It’s a unique take on second-chance romance, and it just may be my favorite work of hers to date.

Raw and beautiful. Look The Part is a story that evoked a million emotions in me as I was reading it. The characters and the story felt so real and relatable. I have no doubt that anyone who reads this book will fall irrevocably in love with Harrison, Ellen and Flint.

Forgive, but harder to forget…

I love reading good books, but I really struggle with writing reviews for books that ROCK MY WORLD. How will I do it justice? How do I show my appreciation for fine work without it sounding like an OTT “SQUEE” review? I have all these bubbles of emotions that need to be expressed but I can’t write them all down. My head is exploding trying to put my love for this book in priority order.

First off, let's start with what I didn't like about the book.

The cover - I don't think Flint wore a light coloured suit throughout the book and they guy on the cover doesn't look a bit like how I imagined him ...

The rats - enough said!

The audio version - I didn't like it (my personal opinion). I am a fussy audio listener and I nearly gave up on the book when I switched to audio so I decided to just stick with actually reading it ... I have learned from past mistakes!

Other than those things,

If contemporary romance is your thing, READ THIS BOOK.

Jewel E Ann is the real deal, guys!!!!

She made me laugh. She made me cry. She made me swoon.

Honestly, I still haven't picked my chin up off the floor and I've been sitting on this review for more than a week.

I listened to the audio, but I feel like I need to read the story to write a proper review . . . it was that good.

Well, wasn't this just freaking fabulous.

Enemies to lovers. Humor. Angst. Steam.

Argh. I loved it so hard.

Fans of those angsty push and pull antics of a lust/hate relationship will devour Look the Part! If you’ve read Jewel E. Ann’s previous works, you’ll likely remember Flint Hopkins. Once a Sports Agent for Cage, star football player, he’s now an attorney, single-dad, and widower. Living a lonely existence chock full of regret for things he cannot change...ever.

Then one seemingly normal day, Ellen Rodgers stumbles into his life. An applicant for his upstairs office space rental
Look the Part, is my first book I read by this author, but it certainly will not be my last. Starting from the prologue, this author had my emotions all over the place.

Flint Hopkins made a really stupid decision, and now he is living with unfathomable grief and guilt. His entire life now, is focused on raising his autistic son, Harrison, on his own. He definitely didn’t count on his new office tenant to turn his world upside down and causing a crack in his cold heart.

I was not expecting much going into this book. I definitely wasn't expecting for it to be emotional and intimate and for the characters to be developed so well, as well as the story. And for it to become one of my favourite NA books.

Themes: loss, grief, autism, music therapy, moving on and love.

As astonishing as it can seem this is my first Jewel E Ann ever! Now I understand why my friend Melanie is such a fan! It won’t be my last one that’s for sure 😉


This story has everything I love: humor, deep and complicated feelings, a hot hero seemingly grumpy but melting under the heroine’s touch, an autist kid and a fantastic heroine.
