Not Knowing Jack - K.A. Mitchell 4 1/2 stars - I adored the growth in this love story and the Tony & Jack's struggles and obstacles nearly broke my heart but I can't give it a five. It comes close but Jack keeps too many secrets and acts like a real SOB at times. Still, he's perfect for Tony (whom I adored) and I truly felt all the reasons why they were both so desperately in love with each other. Great realistic writing, this one is funny, infuriating, sexy and painful. I'm anxious to read the rest of this author's work.

My favorite quote was this one from Tony early on in the book as he ponders wanting a child, proving that he knows exactly where he stands in the relationship at that point & doesn't really mind. It's both funny and a little heartbreaking.
