Review: Jane Doe by Victoria Helen Stone

Goodreads:  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.

Kritters Thoughts:  Do you like a good revenge book?  Do you like to root for a "bad girl?"  If so then this book is just the right thing for you.  Jane Doe returns to Minneapolis to work at an insurance company and that company she chose for a reason, so she can run into and become involved with Steven Hepsworth.  There is one big reason why she wants to become a part of his life and it is revenge.  

I personally loved Jane Doe.  She was a character I could root for.  She felt honest about herself from the beginning and I didn't have to wonder if she was telling me the truth from page to page like you can sometimes get when you have a crazy girl as a main character.  I could get behind her reasoning for doing to Steven what she does and I loved her internal battle trying to decide how exactly she was going to get what she wanted.  I am trying to share my full thoughts without giving any hint of a spoiler.  

I will say that I had gotten a little bored with psychological thrillers.  It felt as though I was reading the same thing again and again.  This one is so different from all the crazy girl books!  

This book isn't for the faint of heart, so be warned.  I loved cheering on this bad girl and hoping for the worst for the guy, but I know this book isn't for everyone!

Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row
