ABOUT THE BOOK: Release Date April 13, 2015

“Don’t Look Back in Anger”

In one night, I lost five years of my life. Here’s what I know …

I was homeless.

I’m a recovering drug addict.

My inked skin crawls from lustful eyes.

I have a serious aversion to women.

My gay partner is a home wrecker.

I own a gun and I’m a damn good shot.

I’m a makeup artist, but it’s an insult to my talent.

I’ve never wanted to possess anything except my Ducati … until I met Darby.

Now here’s what I know since that day in the ER when she pieced me back together … nothing—but a few random thoughts.

My new “friend” is distracting, clingy, and obsessed with acronyms, emojis, and phrases like “breakfast soul mates.”

I didn’t want to like her, but she crawled under my skin and swallowed me whole. Now we’re best friends and she’s my new addiction. I’d drink her from a shot glass, snort her up my nose, or inject her into my veins if I could. What I won’t do … is ever tell her that.

She doesn’t know me … I don’t know me. When those missing years come back, I think she will hate me … I think I will hate me.

My parents named me Patrick Roth, and this is my story.


REVIEW: ONLY TRICK is the latest stand alone, adult, contemporary storyline from author Jewel E Ann focusing on physician’s assistant Darby Carmichael and makeup artist Patrick ‘Trick’ Roth.

Told from two first person points of view (Darby and Trick) the storyline centers on the building relationship between Darby and Trick- a friends to lovers storyline that finds Darby falling in love with her ‘gay’ best friend only to discover that her ‘gay’ best friend has fallen in love with her. Trick is a man without a past; without a family; without the memory of five missing years. At fifteen, Trick’s parents disappeared, leaving the young man homeless and alone but an accident will find Trick without important memories where five years of his life have disappeared. Throughout the storyline events and memories will be triggered as his love for Darby Carmichael grows. Darby is a woman whose own family history is riddled with death and disillusion; and a father who despises the very ground upon which our heroine walks.

The colorful, engaging and emotion driven secondary and supporting characters include Trick’s roommate Grady Cross, and Grady’s sister Tamsen, as well as Darby’s all seeing ’Nana’ Grace McDermot, and fellow co-workers at the hospital. Darby will be introduced to Trick through Gemmie, who is a whirlwind of information.

Jewel E Ann pulls the reader into an emotional storyline of an all-consuming love between two people whose family lives are dysfunctional and broken. This is NOT a M/M storyline but a story about a boy and girl, who have found one another against the odds, and the odds are definitely not stacked in their favor. Trick’s past will eventually catch up and everything about their lives will be destroyed when the truth is revealed. I dare you not to cry ! The $ex scenes are provocative, intense and seductive without the overwhelming erotic factor.

“He’s a makeup artist Gemmie recommended. But he has not, nor ever will be ‘throwing his hat into the ring.’”
“Married?” She grins as if the thought of me being someone’s mistress pleases her. It’s possible all my living relatives are a bit twisted.
I shake my head and smirk. “No, Nana, he’s not married. He’s … gay.”
She throws her head back and slaps her hand against her chest in a fit of laughter. “Oh my goodness!”
“Why is his sexual preference so hysterical?”
“Oh dear…” she wipes the corners of her eyes “…it’s just you have the worst luck in love. When did you find out?”
I reach over and grab a tissue from the sofa table and hand it to her, rolling my eyes. Then I proceed to tell her everything, not leaving out one single detail—including my magnetic attraction to him that shouldn’t be sexual but is.
“Well, dear, you’ve hit the jackpot.”
“What? How have you come to that conclusion from everything I’ve told you?”
“A guy friend who’s gay? I hear they’re every girl’s dream. Except, from the sounds of things, Trick needs to gay up a little more and stop confusing unsuspecting women.”
“Gay up? Who are you?”
She snaps her wrist at me. “I read the tabloids you know.”
“Yeah? Well then you should know that gay doesn’t have a look.”
“That’s the problem. You used to be able to tell by the ear piercing—right for gay left for straight. Or is it the other way around? Anyway, these days everything gets pierced and so it becomes terribly confusing.”
Nana provides nonstop entertainment, and every time I come by to see her I chastise myself for not doing it more often.
“We’re friends, period. And maybe you’re right. If he would ‘gay up’ a little more I might feel the jackpot effect.”
“Yes, shopping, hair, makeup, and chick flicks without competing hormones or competing for the same men.”
“Or wishing he weren’t gay,” I whisper to myself.
She tilts her head to the side, giving me a soft, sympathetic smile. “Or that too, dear.”
