Book Review Of “Jane Doe” By Victoria Helen Stone @AmazonPub
A double life with a single purpose: revenge.
Jane’s days at a Midwest insurance company are perfectly ordinary. She blends in well, unremarkably pretty in her floral-print dresses and extra efficient at her low-level job. She’s just the kind of woman middle manager Steven Hepsworth likes—meek, insecure, and willing to defer to a man. No one has any idea who Jane really is. Least of all Steven.
But plain Jane is hiding something. And Steven’s bringing out the worst in her.
Nothing can distract Jane from going straight for his heart: allowing herself to be seduced into Steven’s bed, to insinuate herself into his career and his family, and to expose all his dirty secrets. It’s time for Jane to dig out everything that matters to Steven. So she can take it all away.
Just as he did to her. ( From Goodreads)
Thank you Ashley and Amazon Publishing #Partner for gifting me this copy, in exchange of an honest review. All opinions are my own.
I rate this book a 4 out of 5 Stars.
Jane, is my favorite Sociopath, EVER! I loved her from the first page, and I love that she was smart, and she knew fierce. She knew that men viewed women as the weaker species, and she played right into that part, but used it to her advantage. I love that she was such a manipulator, and no one saw it. I love how her character was written. She knew she was a sociopath, we knew she was a sociopath. It wasn’t a guessing game. We knew what she was, and we got to sit back and enjoy it, without having to guess what her mental illness was. I also like that the author showed how the illness felt for Jane. Jane knew what was wrong with her, and she owned it! Like a boss!
Steven was disgusting, and vile, and he deserved the worst. He was a total slime ball. I love when I love/hate the characters. It makes for such a great read, and this one I read so fast. I was consumed by this book, I was consumed by Jane, and I want her to be a real person, so than I could make her MY best friend! I couldn’t put it down. I was so excited when my kids decided they wanted to have a lazy day and lounge in my bed all day, gave me so much reading time, which I used to finish this book up. Now, I need to read more of Stone’s books, because if this is any indication of her writing, I am going to be a huge fan! I also want to add, that it was refreshing to read the book from one characters perspective, with not time jumps, not alternating perspectives. Just one person to follow along with, from start to finish. I loved it!
