Overview

When your lover becomes a stranger, trust is the weakest link of all.

 

Bartender Tony Gemetti has it all: a rich, hot boyfriend, a McMansion in the ’burbs and unlimited sex in an expectation-free zone. He thought that was all he ever wanted out of any relationship—until Jack begins making excuses for frequent disappearances. Realizing he has more than his libido and enough drawers for his T-shirt collection riding on this relationship, Tony figures it’s time to find out what’s going on.

 

Jack Noble has spent his life hiding his real self behind a carefully created image. With Tony, he finally knows real freedom, real happiness. Now a past of buried secrets and lies is closing in, and no matter how hard he tries to stop it, the truth is tearing through. Once Tony learns what kind of man Jack really is, he won’t stay. Jack’s sure of it.

 

Suddenly the past shows up in a completely unexpected way, testing the boundaries of their old, coasting-along-on-fun relationship. Tony indeed finds that Jack isn’t the man he went looking for, but it’s too late. There’s too much at stake to just walk away. First, though, he has to make sure there are no lies left for Jack to hide behind.

 

Warning: Readers should be free of any heart condition that may be affected by a hero with an overactive imagination, painful back stories, and hot sex in a variety of athletic positions. Neither the author nor the publisher is responsible for any sudden or frequent urges to have children with Tony Gemetti.

    Not worth the money

    It's hard to write a review about this book without giving away too much. Basically this book would have been great if not for the main character, Jack. I thought this book was going to be a love story. This book was anything but a love story. Throughout the book Jack doesn't seem to like Tony...let alone love him. He is down right nasty to Tony at times when Tony is only trying to be there for him and support him. Many times during the book Jack would say something mean to Tony or put him down, then they would end up in bed, and all would be forgiven. Until the next time. I had a big problem with the fact that Jack never seems to really feel bad or make it up to Tony. The bedroom scenes DO NOT make up for the lack of love on Jack's part. I felt like I was reading about two different couples. I love angst love stories where the people aren't perfect and make mistakes but the characters have to have some redeeming qualities. This book is not one. I didn't like Jack once during this book. Not Knowing Jack was not worth the money.

    Loved this book even more than the first. A beautifully written story and characters. Mitchell has not written any book I have not enjoyed or would not reccommend!

    Could not put it down!!!

    I must say that I absolutly loved this book!! The characters were believeable and the story line was fantastic! There was drama and humor all packed in one baook and it was amazing! I wanted to cry and then I laughed my butt off. So good. I wanna read it again. This was the first book by K.A. Mitchell that I have ever read and I will be reading more.

    But before you reead this book, please read Ms. Mitchell's book "Regularly Scheduled Life" first. These two books connect. "Not Knowing Jack" takes place after "Regularly Scheduled Life". You don't have to read them in order but it helps if you do.

    Terrific read!

    I "consumed" this one. Mitchell's books are very poignant. Being a gay dad, I related very well to the whole-hearted attempt of familial integration! The son's transition was dead-on!

    Awesome story!

    As a divorced gay man I understood some of the characters and ideas. As an avid reader and someone who us really starting to enjoy gay fiction, I was impressed with the authors style. I will definitely read more of this author.

    Recommended Read - A Best Book All the Way!!!

    Tattoos, a sous-chef, and a couple kids shouldn't work in a relationship, but written at the hand of K.A. Mitchell, it works and so much more.

    Call me partial, but when I see a K.A. Mitchell book, I feel compelled to buy it. I do. And you know what? Every time I am completely satisfied. Why? Ms. Mitchell has created characters I want to know in real life. With her books, I've laughed, cried, and raced to the end to make sure they get the happily ever after they deserve. The writing tugged me in immediately and I felt like I'd escaped the world I live in to immerse myself in the world of Tony and Jack.

    Did I like Not Knowing Jack? Absolutely, positively yes. This one goes on my keeper shelf right next to Regularly Scheduled Life. I'd love Kyle and Sean in Regularly Scheduled Life, but at the time, I wanted to know more about Tony and Jack. I got their story and so much more in Not Knowing Jack.

    I have to admit, I put off reading this book because I knew it would be emotional. Just reading the blurb told me there was way more to the story than a simple boy toy-slash-sugar daddy relationship. Whether they knew it or not, Tony and Jack have a bond any couple would kill for. Although they don't feel like they know each other, there is an unspoken language they share. Let me tell you, it was hot to read about and heartwarming as well.

    But just as there were lots of sticky sweet moments, Ms. Mitchell also snared me with the roughly emotional bits. There were times when I not only wanted to shout at both Tony and Jack, I wanted to grab them both in a hug. They both have a plethora of things going on and the communication they truly share isn't as obvious as they'd like.

    I think my favorite part of the story, beyond the entire story itself, was Sarah, a.k.a. Peanut. Talk about a way to get through the thickest ice? I absolutely loved the scene at Cedar Point. Be it the game of chance scene or the roller coaster ride, my heart was right there with Sarah and her brother Brandon.

    The book left me with a happy sigh. I'm glad I got to revisit Kyle and Sean, thrilled Sarah and Brandon got their happy ever after, and just warm and fuzzy that I got the chance to read/review this book.

    If you want a book with characters you won't forget (ever), with love scenes guaranteed to make you squirm happily in your seat, and a pair of sexy, drool-worthy guys, then look no further than Not Knowing Jack. Without a doubt, it's a best book.

    OMG!!

    This book has it ALL. Humor to the point of my recommending no drinking while reading this book, and an honesty of characters that is sorely missing in many m/m books .......and the smokin' sex isn't bad, either. A must read!
