With her new look Jane/Chelsea never understood how men could be pigs with the way they saw the model looks she now had she had all the male attention she always dreamed of but with two men vowing for her attention what would happen once she took the ring off and went back to her old self would they believe it was her or would they discard her like she's used to.
Speed dating, that's plain Jane's nightmare and Zac and Mike prove the point.
Jane sadly epitimises the less than average looking amongst us, it was like reading about myself. I feel for Jane.
I love the sneekiness of the author, he kept teasing us with the hero at the beginning, I randomly thought " Ooh here he is, no? Ooh this is him now, but no! I don't think I've ever been kept waiting so long for the hero to turn up! And then suddenly there's more than one......
CC is sassy, but I missed Jane, her awkwardness, her wishful dreams. but haven't most of us at some time, wished we could wake up one day beautiful? A chance to show all those that we do belong.
I like Brodie's smart, straight talking mouth. He's fun in a slightly chauvanistic way. but He appears genuine in his feelings. Jane & Brodie's banter is hilarious, makes you want to lean into the page and slap Brodie upside his head! but you soften a little when he talks about his job, his brother Brian and sister Brenna. Highlighting yet again the indepth research this author goes to, to ensure all the facts stack up.
The whole Jane & Wes adventure was so funny, but there was an underlying sense of being overwhelmed for Jane, his words, his actions, they were all things Jane just wasn't used to. And she plays a tangled game with him.
And then, everything is bought back to earth with a thud, with just one single sentence.....the author encapsulating all of Jane's insecurities and vulnerability, all the flaws that she see looking back at her; " Only instead of my carriage turning into a pumpkin, it would just be me that turned into a pumpkin"
Devon's books are always emotional, they somehow provoke thoughts that you have visited in a while. Because OMG, just sentences later there appears a flicker of hope for Jane!
I am on tenderhooks for Part 2. I am so shouting in Jane's corner, I want to see her believe that she is beautiful and worthy......we shall see!
This story does have a mystical feel about it and at first I wasn't sure what to think... can this really happen, however you cannot help getting caught up in the fantasy that becomes Jane's reality.
As soon as Jane managed to convince George that it was really her, I have to say I felt relieved that she had confided in someone but it was only the beginning of what was to come and whilst talking of George, I couldn't help thinking how he reminded me a little of Romeo and Kamiko!
Jane started to embrace her new found supermodel beauty but it didn't take long before she realised it came with just as many challenges as it did when she was just plain Jane...whether it be positive or negative she'd gone from not being admired to being overly admired but still judged, just for different reasons.
Brodie was the first example of that, by the way he reminded me of Christos maybe it was the motorbike anyway it was only when Jane became Chelsea that Brodie took notice.
Jane found herself judging Brodie even, just based on his looks etc, but he soon proved himself to be a great guy, she soon changed her view about him.
Wes however, he seemed the mystical one he reminded me a little of Draken by the way. It's the way Jane came across Wes's house the whole approach the ring and then she couldn't find his house on google maps, the whole thing with the magician and then seeing Wes again and that piece of paper that she just stuffed in her bag... did that mean anything.
There is certainly plenty to keep you absolutely riveted. Devon Hartford never dissapoints, he brings to life exactly what we always wonder.. What would it be like to be beautiful and perfect, this is incorporated so well throughout this brilliant storyline.
By the time you are well over 3/4 the way through you start to wonder how is this all going to end... it's all about the ring.
When Jane became her old self and Wes turned up and they started playing video games together, just sitting there in her little apartment I wasn't sure what to think and then the 'ring' she couldn't find it and then she diid...what will happen next??
I'm dying to find out.. thank goodness we only have to wait until April for book 2.!!
Thank you Devon Hartford.!
