Mesmerizingly brilliant! It’ll engage you from the start and entertain you until the very end. It's original, magical and riveting, tragic and heartwarming, fun and sexy. L.H. Cosway’s topics and writing style practically leap out and off the page.

This story centers on a boy whose innocence was fractured by abuse and then completely stolen by violence but grows up to be a man with hope, justice and vengeance within his grasp, albeit in a very misdirecting kind of way. It’s also about romance and wanting to recapture a lost childhood through happy surprises and astonishing illusions.
“Deep down he’s just a big kid who thrives on mischievous pranks and coming up with elaborate ways to surprise people”

I’ve been trying to figure out a way to write this review without giving much or anything away. I feel like I’ve given out too much already.

By the book’s provocative blurb we know Jay has an end game for love and revenge. But all is not what it seems and how this plan came about will be slowly revealed and only until the end will we be able to put all the puzzle pieces in place. But from now until then L.H. Cosway creates a wonderful tale that will amaze you with the way she describes each trick, endear you to the loveable characters and keep you spellbound with the plot’s intrigue.

Jay is a self-assured trickster that oozes sexiness, he’s charming, charismatic and caring. With the shows he gives we know he’s this amazing performer but mostly he’s an incredible thinker. A student of behavioral science, he is patient, cunning, methodic and determined, you know the ending will be awesome.
“The biggest surprise, though, is still to come... I like to think of it as Jay’s prestige. His big finish.”

Even with her self-doubts and social awkwardness, Matilda is this smart, snarky and amusing woman, both outside and inside.
“What? I said my inner dialogue was a bitch”

She’s a “hopeless romantic” who wants to find “epic love” but is constantly afraid of taking chances so even though there’s an instant and intense attraction between her and Jay, she puts it off treating him as a friend which enables Matilda to be herself around him, which is frequently hilarious.
“I think you could probably say, ‘I’ll be Burger King and you be McDonalds. I’ll have it my way and you’ll be lovin’ it,’ and you’d probably still score.” ~ Matilda to Jay

I loved their banter. The way they tease each other is fun, flirty and witty. The instant chemistry that only builds in anticipation was torturous. They seem to be like two magnets aligned at the wrong ends, sometimes touching but not being able to come together until correctly aligned. And when they do it’s achingly sweet and swoony.
“I want to romance you, Watson.”

As the story drew closer to the end, I felt myself wanting to read slower, loving it so much and just not wanting to let it go. I wanted to keep living with the magic.
“Be a kid again and believe in the fantastical. Life is more fun with a little smoke and mirrors.”

Her contemporary romances are precisely that: new and ingenious. I can’t wait to read L.H. Cosway’s next book. But from now until then, I’ll re-read this one. I urge you to get it. You won’t be disappointed.
