Publisher's Summary

Step right up and meet Jay Fields: Illusionist. Mentalist. Trickster.

I think in triangles. You think in straight lines. I show you a table and make you believe it's a chair. Smoke and mirrors, sleight of hand, misdirection. I trick and deceive. But most of all, I put on a good show.

The world thinks I killed a man, but I didn't. Bear with me. It's all a part of the plan. Revenge is what I want. I want it for me, and I want it for her. I want it for all six of us.

She doesn't remember me, but she's the reason for everything. She'll be my prize at the end of all this - if I can hold onto my willpower, that is. Maybe I'll slip up a little, have a taste, just a small one.

So go ahead and pick a card. Come inside and see the show. Look at my hands, look so closely that you can't see what's happening while you're so focused on looking. I'll be destroying your world from right here in the spotlight. You'll never see me coming until it's too late.

I've only got one heart, and after I've pulled off my grand deception, I'll hand it right to her. So, sit back, relax, and let my girl tell you our story. You're in for one hell of a ride.

    "Passable"

    Book was just that passable, there wasn't sufficient story buildup for the reader to be wowed by how it all unravels maybe if there had been a dual POV and we got some insight into how Jay was orchestrating what he was then it would have been an epic storyline as it is it's like reading a mystery about a mystery and you are left feeling is that it!
    The narrator was also just as lukewarm as the book, she literally read the book. I'm used to my audible creating a production I can picture in my head. I could actually hear pages rustling at times - it just took the magic out of the whole experience, maybe I would have had more appreciation of the book had I read it not listened to it. I wouldn't be confident to recommend it I'm afraid.

    "The Story is wonderful, but the Narrator ruins it"
    Any additional comments?

    I often purchase audio books to listen to after I have read a book - I get a more complete picture of the book because I hear things that I missed during reading, and vice versa.<br/><br/>That said, Thank heavens I read Six of Hearts first, or I'm pretty certain I would have marked this as "Did Not Finish". <br/><br/>At one point while listening, I honestly wondered if the narration was computer generated - it is that stilted. The narrator seems to stop to breathe at the end of every phrase as well as at every comma. She forgets to use an American accent with Jay half the time. She doesn't differentiate between voices, so you can't tell from listening who is speaking. She doesn't emote half the time, so it sounds flat and boring. I really hate to say all this, because I don't want to cause hurt feelings, but listening to this recording was just plain painful... <br/><br/>I truly enjoyed this story, and would highly recommend it -- but get the eBook version of Six of Hearts. Don't buy this narration.<br/>

    "Don't get the audible book...narrator ruins it"
    What did you love best about Six of Hearts?

    Characters all the characters have depth.<br/>After the story reaches that peak storyline halfway thru the book<br/>there are still twists and turns to look forward to


    What didn’t you like about Donna Kelly’s performance?

    Jay Fields sounds like a high pitched 15 year old. While Matilda sounds like she is 30 something.<br/>She would raise her voice when she was suppose to whisper<br/>The american accent was good, until she said Darlin'... which annoyingly came out as a sarcastic sounding Dawhhhhh-lliinnn' every time.

    Story
    "Very bad narration"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I believe the narrator ruined this story for me. I should have been laughing instead I felt annoyed with the voice and the background noises she made. There was very little voice difference in the characters. I understand that may be difficult, but then narration of a book may not be your suitable profession. I hate to sound cruel, but this story should have been delightful for me.


    Would you recommend Six of Hearts to your friends? Why or why not?

    I would recommend the book, just not the audio.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Donna Kelly’s performances?

    I've added Donna Kelly to list of one other narrator that I will not listen to again.


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    A better narrator.

    Story
    "UNDERNEATH ALL THE ILLUSION WAS SWEET REVENGE"

    Now I'll be honest here - it took me a couple of semi-starts before I could overcome the female narrator's inability to do a convincing male voice - and even her female characters were indistinguishable from each other. But I was curious, intrigued and captivated by the mysterious, talented and handsome Jay whose personality stole my heart.... and it was him, coupled with the humorous banter that flowed easily between him and Matilda, and their sweet ever growing feelings for each other, that made me press on to find out just how this unusual love story was going to play out.

    Let me spin the web for you.... Jay has returned to Ireland, seeks a Solicitor to sue a Newspaper - enter Hugh Matilda's Dad, Jay also needs somewhere to stay - Hugh has a spare room and so starts Matilda's infatuation with the fit, sexy and drool worthy Jay. And, as they live under the same roof, they soon become friends but the tension and sexual chemistry between them builds when Matilda goes on a couple of dates because Jay is giving out some very strange mixed messages. There's bad guys, good guys and a couple of good friends, there's a tragic backstory and a bit of drama revolving the bad guys and there's romance, sweetness, some sex and unfortunately sacrifices too. Jay is an Illusionist, Mentalist and a Trickster.... and with him nothing's quite as it seems..... so Matilda's questions remain unanswered, his secrets build and things aren't adding up but the one thing that remains constant is the unshakable chemistry between them and their faith in each other.

    Jay and Matilda were likeable characters, his true identity could be 'read between the lines' early on in the book but there were a few surprises still up Jay's sleeve. However, I did think there was a lot of build-up to the reveal.... then 'poof' suddenly it was all over and the whole ending was, IMO, a bit anti climactic. Told from Matilda's funny, warm, vibrant and often confused POV.

    Worth a credit? I really liked it but I just didn't love it, it delivered a very unusual plot line but it sadly fell a bit short at the end, I loved Jay but their relationship blew hot and cold and although there was romance, some passion and sex - I never really felt an epic love story. For me, I think the listen suffered a lot by having this particular narrator and so sadly my full enjoyment of it was a bit marred. However, I do think the tattooed, mysterious and talented Jay has deserved the credit all on his own for the Sting he managed to pull off, for being so damn sexy and nice and for his thoughtfulness at the end. If you're not sure then maybe put it in your Wish List and wait for a Sale.

    Story
    "Magical twist of a love story"
    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Matilda. I loved being inside her head. She was quirky and funny, and most importantly she felt very real.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Hmm. The narrator left some things to be desired. She was great as Matilda and affected an Irish accent well. However, I don't think the voice of Jay was done well. It wasn't masculine enough nor was his American/Bostonian accent present. At one point in the story, a male Australian character was introduced and that accent attempt was atrocious! Narrator aside, the sound editing was not up to par. Ambient noises like paper rustling, knocks, and chatter were present distractions.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Definitely. This book was very enjoyable with its mystery and Jay's immense bag of tricks. Cosway's story was quite unique in the romance genre. Bravo to her for creating something new.


    Any additional comments?

    My only criticism of this story is that I wish Cosway had held back a little more information from the reader. Jay wove an intricate plot for revenge which should have had more of the "prestige" and grand reveal fitting of a master illusionist. I wish I had been shocked in the end and I wasn't.<br/><br/>With that said, the characters in this book were believable and fun. The romance between Jay and Matilda was sweet but still ripe with hot, sexual tension. I hope that the other books in the hearts series are available on Audible soon.

    Story
    "Loved this story! Hated the narration. "

    I loved this story. I love the hero. He's such a noble guy. He plays mysteriously, but truly, he's genius with a heart of gold. I love how he engages "Watson" aka Matilda, and how irresistible he is. I also love Matilda. She's funny and quirky and genuine. I adore the story.

    I HATED the narrator. It was hard to tell when she was speaking for the characters and which character she was speaking for. Her American accent for Jason made him sound like he was costly speaking as a looney toons "wiiise guuy". And when he was whispering softly, the narrator was talking LOUDLY. Blek! It was hard to focus on the story and not how annoying the narration was. Maybe read this one with your eyeballs. It's a good story.

    Story
    "Starts off with a bang but goes on and on. . ."
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A complete re-write. Starts off with what appears to be a mystery but quickly turns into a predictable love story. Gorgeous near perfect man falls in love with flawed (in her eyes) not so perfect woman.


    What was most disappointing about L.H. Cosway’s story?

    Drawn out. Started off very promising but quickly became a long-winded love story. We do get the answers to the mystery but not until the end.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Donna Kelly?

    Other reviews said the narration was annoying and I thought at first the reviews referred to the narrator's Irish accent. But no, I don't think so. There were times when Donna Kelly sounded like she was reading a bus timetable.<br/>And the Australian accent was terrible. We Australians sound nothing like her pertrayal. <br/>I will avoid this narrator in the future.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Six of Hearts?

    Probably too many chunks to mention.


    Any additional comments?

    Obviously, this author and narrator are not for me. Perhaps a young adult might enjoy it. <br/>Be aware though there is adult content.
