Honestly, y'all, I was torn between calling this a very modified Cinderella story (see the synopsis) or just pure fantasy but maybe it's a little bit of both. No matter how you categorize it, I will say that if you're looking for a quick read that has funny banter (Jane is hilarious, in my opinion), some steamy smutty scenes, and a quick paced plot The Anatomy of Jane is exactly what you're looking for. The book reads very swiftly and gives you enough detail to get a taste of who these characters are, without bogging you down with too much, and yet it leaves you clamoring for more.
In my mind it was broken into three basic parts--getting to know Jane and how she gets involved with Max and Wes, seeing how their relationship develops, and watching how various people in their lives 'deal' with their relationship. I was also pleasantly surprised at the lack of mean girl drama that I kept waiting to happen--maybe LeFay decided that Jane and the boys had enough going on and that more drama would just take it too far? Maybe it was the cliffhanger she gave us? Maybe it's because Jane and Max and Wes are very strong characters (all alphas in their own ways) who don't play games with each other and prize their relationship and honesty above all else? Whatever the reason, The Anatomy of Jane worked and I cannot wait to see how Amelia LeFay resolves all of the things she's left open at the end: what will happen with these three and their parents, will we learn details about Max's dad, who is Irene's new guy, will Jane's parents show up? SO.MANY.QUESTIONS. It'll be exciting to see which ones she answers for us.
I’ve always been on my own. My life used to consist of nothing but work, keeping Allen out of trouble, and if I had time, sleep. Then I became their maid.
Every day more than half a million people tune in to watch my show. They trust me. I know it’s because I’m the only son of the prominent Emerson family. However, I like to believe it because I’m honest no matter what story I report on. I’m honest about everything but the man I’ve been f**king for the last four years… and now her.
First I want three things: First Maxwell Emerson and Jane Chapman both in my bed. Second, to be the best bloody chef in the country. Third, to figure out how to simultaneously get the first and second things I want without any of us getting hurt.
ONE LOVE STORY…
