I did something I had never done before. I had a one-night stand. Then in true me fashion, I left my phone at his house during my desperate venture to escape.
I tried hard to ignore the texts sent to my best friend’s phone..
Amethyst: Sup, these selfies are cute as shit, but your lips looked better wrapped around my…
I did NOT text him back.
I DID vow to never speak of him, or that night again...
I’m Amethyst Lily Tatum, and up until this point, I’d managed to maintain a fairly low-key life. I’m what you would call a socially unacceptable hot mess. Instead of partying, I’m skating, flipping ollie’s over guys who loved to underestimate me. Then I started college, met a wild girl who I would soon call my best-friend, had my first drunk one-night stand, left my phone at his house, and then, when I finally managed to meet my mom’s new boyfriend, I found out that my one-night stand, was now my new stepbrother. ONE BOUNDLESS STARS
Flip Trick has a lot going on, from the start. This is the first book I’ve read of Amo Jones and let me tell you there is so much going on in the first few chapters; it was making my head spin. I was initially, drawn to this story because of the book cover and there was skateboarding. That’s what I grew up around. But I realized quickly it wasn’t going to be like anything that I had expected. Maddox and Amethyst have a history together that they don’t even realize till a little bit more into the book. In all honesty, I couldn’t connect to these characters. There was so much drama going on; things were happening. I could even call it before it happened. I liked that fact that Ame was a skateboarder. But I think it would have been fun if it was part of the majority of the story. In all honesty, it was quite the struggle to get through. I think Jones had a great idea. But I think if she left out the majority of the drama that was going on. It would have been better. I didn’t have that urgency that you need to finish the book. I don’t know if this is her usual style. But I would give her books another chance. Overall, I have to give this One Boundless Star.
