My first time getting it in the butt was kind of weird. I think it's going to be weird for everyone's first time, though. Meet Jack Rothman. He's seventeen and loves partying, makeup and boys – sometimes all at the same time. His sex life makes him the hot topic for the high school gossip machine. But who cares? Like Jack always says, 'it could be worse'. He doesn't actually expect that to come true. But after Jack starts writing an online sex advice column, the mysterious love letters he's been getting take a turn for the creepy. Jack's secret admirer knows everything: where he's hanging out, who he's sleeping with, who his mum is dating. They claim they love Jack, but not his unashamedly queer lifestyle. They need him to curb his sexuality, or they'll force him. As the pressure mounts, Jack must unmask his stalker before their obsession becomes genuinely dangerous… . . . . . . . #books #reading #bookstagram #bookworm #library #picoftheday #bookstore #youngadult #kindle #currentlyreading #igreads #igbooks #booksofinstagram #fantasy #teen #bookshelf #shelfie #yash3lf #jackofheartsandotherparts
