REVIEW + GIVEAWAY: Six of Hearts by L.H. Cosway

Six of Hearts by L.H. Cosway

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Purchase: Amazon US / Amazon UK / B&N


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.

Revenge is what I want. I want it for me and I want it for her.
I want it for all six of us.

She doesn’t remember me, but she’s the reason for everything. She’ll be my prize at the end of all this – if I can hold onto my willpower, that is. Maybe I’ll slip up a little, have a taste, just a small one.

So go ahead and pick a card. Come inside and see the show. Look at my hands, look so closely that you can’t see what’s happening while you’re so focused on looking. I’ll be destroying your world from right here in the spotlight.

You’ll never see me coming until it’s too late.

I’ve only got one heart, and after I’ve pulled off my grand deception I’ll hand it right to her.
So, sit back, relax, and let my girl tell you our story. You’re in for one hell of a ride.
My Matilda and Jay:

* 5 STARS * Review:

"Why not live with the magic? Be a kid again and believe in the fantastical. Life is more fun with a little smoke and mirrors."

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.

"Never try to out-trick a trickster."

This is a story about true magic of life and possibility of finding your very own epic love. This is a story about stolen childhood and getting your revenge. Six of Hearts is a book that will absorb you with its electric and all-consuming atmosphere. You need to know nothing more about this novel. Just read the blurb (which serves as great intro) and dive into the book so you can experience this amazing story yourself!

I absolutely adored the friendly-entertaining "voice" of narrator in this book. Matilda is an ordinary girl, with her fair share of insecurities, adventurous and curious spirit, plenty of romantic ideals and the most funniest and sarcastic inner dialogue ever. She is exactly a girl for my liking and a kind of girl I would love to have for a friend. L.H. Cosway is a master in creating the best and most lovable female characters.

"Better to disillusion the illusionist from the get-go."

L.H. Cosway also writes the most unique and swoonworthy male characters ever. Jay Fields is no exception. Charming but cheeky illusionist, mysterious and intimidating man, intriguing in his own special way. It took me a long time to truly figure him out and I absolutely love when author is able to keep me on my toes when it comes to characters.

I enjoyed this book immensely and I already cannot wait to see with what will L.H. Cosway come up next. Her contemporary romances always tend to surprise me and I am left completely mesmerized after finishing them. So do not hesitate to pick this book up as soon as possible!
