"Wonderful--suspense and surprises, real characters, and a scary, ominous backbeat. This feels like the book Jackson was born to write." --Lee Child, New York Times bestselling author

Named a Best Book by USA Today * People * Wall Street Journal * Time * Entertainment Weekly * Bustle * and many more!

From New York Times bestselling author Joshilyn Jackson, a twisting novel of domestic suspense in which a group of women play a harmless drinking game that escalates into a war of dark pasts

In this game, even winning can be deadly...

Amy Whey is proud of her ordinary life and the simple pleasures that come with it--teaching diving lessons, baking cookies for new neighbors, helping her best friend, Charlotte, run their local book club. Her greatest joy is her family: her devoted professor husband, her spirited fifteen-year-old stepdaughter, her adorable infant son. And, of course, the steadfast and supportive Charlotte. But Amy's sweet, uncomplicated life begins to unravel when the mysterious and alluring Angelica Roux arrives on her doorstep one book club night.

Sultry and magnetic, Roux beguiles the group with her feral charm. She keeps the wine flowing and lures them into a game of spilling secrets. Everyone thinks it's naughty, harmless fun. Only Amy knows better. Something wicked has come her way--a she-devil in a pricey red sports car who seems to know the terrible truth about who she is and what she once did.

When they're alone, Roux tells her that if she doesn't give her what she asks for, what she deserves, she's going to make Amy pay for her sins. One way or another.

To protect herself and her family and save the life she's built, Amy must beat the devil at her own clever game, matching wits with Roux in an escalating war of hidden pasts and unearthed secrets. Amy knows the consequences if she can't beat Roux. What terrifies her is everything she could lose if she wins.

A diabolically entertaining tale of betrayal, deception, temptation, and love filled with dark twists leavened by Joshilyn Jackson's trademark humor, Never Have I Ever explores what happens when the transgressions of our past come back with a vengeance.

A New & Noteworthy pick. Here’s a cat-and-mouse thriller that you won’t be able to put down. I never saw the end coming. Jackson's first thriller and it’s addictive.

Could NOT put this riveting, engrossing book down. I have enjoyed all Joshilyn Jackson' books, but this one is the best so far.

4+ stars for this chilling new suburban thriller. Amy Whey opens the door on book club night and finds evil incarnate on her doorstep. The woman introduces herself as Angelica Roux and proceeds to dominate the evening, leaving Amy with this: "Come by my place. Soon. We have a lot to talk about." Thus begins a high-stakes game of chicken with an epic conclusion. Amy is a deep sea dive instructor which adds an interesting dimension to the plot and her story. Would make a fabulous read for book groups.
