Wow, I loved this book. The storyline is believable, the sex is plentiful and very hot, the characters are all great and the leads, both of them, are just so likeable. I'm looking forward to reading more from this author. Highly recommend.

I loved this book. You Don't Know Jack had VERY likeable characters - the heroine was just someone you could relate to (and want to be friends with) and the hero, Jack, was yummy. Nice and sexy and rich and just a little bit messed up. A thoroughly enjoyable read with laughter, hot sex and a happy ending.

This was a cute story, but it was boring at times and too predictable, oh and it had misunderstandings in it. I was expecting much more from the author. The story takes place in about two weeks, and although I don't really feel that the story was rushed, I felt like the situations that were presented, went only surface deep and that extra pages written would have made a better connection with the reader. So, I wouldn't pull this one next off the tbr pile, but wouldn't not read it. I did like that the couple in this story were in a wedding together. The books Ms. McCarthy writes are hot, so I'm giving it a 3.5.

This book brings back Jamie, a character we meet in The Pregnancy Test. She doesn't believe in true love but destiny is about to throw "Jack" at her feet. When they meet & go out they end up together for a really hot night. But she finds out he isn't who she thought he was & that he's lied to her. Can she ever trust him again? Only Jack's persistance will tell. Another great romantic, funny, & sexy story. Lover all her books.

This is the second book concerning this group of friends and I loved the over all story and characters. You can definitely read this book without the other but after you read it you'll want more! I enjoyed it so much I went to her site to see the if there were any more books in this series but Unfortunately according to her web site she wasn't able to write about the other friends mentioned in the book because of some legal thing... Our loss!!

Ever been in love with your best friend's brother without knowing he's her brother? It's a funny mix up that Mccarthy pulls through successfully and sexily.

The is the second book in NY Girlfriends series (not sure if there are any after this though). Jamie has a very interesting story and is a very lovable character. Jack is deceiving Jamie and then tries to win her heart. Cute story and characters for an afternoon read. There was not as much humor in this compared to NYG #1 so a bit of a let down, but I will continue to read McCarthy books.

Jamie is destined to meet her soul mate, but would rather not. Jack, or is it Jonathon, is the one. A good, fun and hot read.

Comes after "The Pregnancy Test." In this one we get Jamie's story. It was a nice, light mood lifter with just a bit of mystery to keep you reading.

You Don't Know Jack is the second book in the NY Girlfriends series by Erin McCarthy. I read the first book, The Pregnancy Test, almost five years ago and just found it to be OK. Not terrible, but definitely not great. Fortunately, this second book more than makes up for where the first book lacked. It had humor and was filled with some of the most hot and spicy sex scenes I have read in a long time. Some readers may even categorize this as erotica.

I loved these characters. Jamie and Jack make the perfect couple even though they are complete polar opposites. Jamie is a working class girl living in New York City with three roommates to make ends meet. She's a social worker who is helping paroled convicts re-enter the world as free men. She doesn't believe in the happily ever after fairy tale or in love. I thought Jamie's cynical nature would annoy me after a while, but it never did. Jamie lives by an unusual code of ethics and, up until she meets Jack, it has worked for her.

Normally, a man who lies to a woman from the start can't ever be trusted and I applaud the woman who tells these types of men where to go. Unfortunately, Jack isn't truthful with Jamie when they meet. He lies about the circumstances that have placed him on the subway she is on. He keeps his true identity to himself as he knows that Jamie would probably avoid him if she knew because a): he's her roommate, Caroline's brother, and b): he has a lot of money. We're talking about an obscene amount. He comes from money anyway, but we're talking about the kind of money that enables someone to officially retire from the corporate Wall Street career before turning thirty. This is definitely not the kind of lifestyle Jamie lives in or feels comfortable in. Last, but not least, Jack knows that Jamie would have a problem knowing who he really is because he just turned down her employer's request for funding and if she knew he suspected her of embezzling money, she might not react with sunshine and daisies. I totally understand why Jack keeps the truth from Jamie, but it still doesn't make it right and, of course, Jamie finds out and it doesn't look good for them to make a go of it.

The great thing about Jack is that even though he is mega rich, he's very likable, down to earth and very persistent. Jamie finds it extremely difficult to stay angry at him and not like him. In addition, he makes her feel things she has never felt before with any other man. Several times while reading this book, I wished I were Jamie.

My only very small problem with this book was the story left a lot of loose ends that leaves the reader hanging. I had a lot of "what about" questions at the end about Austin, Jack's grandfather, Jamie's father, Jamie's roommates, Caroline, Allison and Mandy. If you are like me when reading a book, specifically a book that is part of a series, you want those loose ends tied up, especially if those loose ends will have no relevance to the rest of the series. Unfortunately, I am unable to determine if there are anymore books in this series.

Even still, I thoroughly enjoyed meeting Jamie and Jack and highly recommend this book if you like smexy (smutty and sexy) hot love scenes and some hilarity to go with it.

A light plot mainly to serve the steamy scenes. A social worker who dislikes the trappings of wealth becomes involved with a wealthy stock trader. He is also her room mate's brother.

I enjoyed this book, but not quite as much as the first book in the series...The Pregnancy Test.

Cute, charming, very light read with plenty of steamy love scenes.
Strangely the back cover description is wrong about the setup which is just weird. But the basic premise is correct.

I read a couple of Erin McCarthy's Seven Deadly Sins series and this was much better in style and content.

Erin McCarthy has a charming way of letting us in on what her characters are thinking. The self-talk is spot on contemporary lingo and really endears the characters to the reader. Lovely little romp with scalding hot sex scenes. Highly recommended.

A quick, funny, fun read. Although this seems like chick-lit, it wasn't too silly or shallow. The romance is perfect and steamy without being over the top. The hero is great. Loved him and loved how he was with the heroine. The heroine is refreshingly not stick thin or model like. In fact, one character (not the hero!) describes her as "porky". I thought she could have had a bit more of a backbone and stood up for herself a bit more, but she wasn't truly annoying or dumb. Overall, I would definitely read more from this author.
