Jane Doe by Victoria Helen Stone - #BOOKREVIEW
Self-proclaimed sociopath, Jane sets out for revenge on behalf of her friend who suffered at the hands of a boyfriend and stops at nothing to bring the man down in any way possible.
Carefully plotting her vengeance she takes up a new life temporarily, to put her plan into action but she didn’t know that along the way she would find her place, maybe ever her salvation.
Jane doesn’t believe that she’s worthy of love or affection because of her affliction or lack of caring. She’s true to only herself and when that one thing in her life is gone, she finds herself in a new life pretending to be someone she’s not.
To say I loved this book is an understatement. I felt compassion for Jane even though she believes she’s predisposed to this mind-altering ailment, I think it’s more something that was learned in order to protect herself as a child and nothing more. I totally connected to her from the start but wasn’t sure where the road was going to take me and I’m pleasantly surprised at the outcome!
A double life with a single purpose: revenge.
Jane’s days at a Midwest insurance company are perfectly ordinary. She blends in well, unremark
ably 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.
