Is life better when you’re beautiful?
Jane Johnson has tried every beauty tip and trick known to woman, but none of them have ever made men notice her.
Finally, something is working. She barely recognizes herself in the mirror. Is it her new haircut? Two years of yoga class? Her new eyebrow tweeze? Or is it all that nasty wheat grass juice her sister insisted she drink finally working some kind of magic? Whatever it is, something is transforming Jane from plain to downright beautiful.
For the first time in her life, men are noticing her.
Jane is getting so much attention from men she doesn’t know what to do with it.
Before her inexplicable transformation, she couldn’t get a date to save her life. Now she has a date every night of the week. Gorgeous eligible men are throwing themselves at her. They’re even fighting over her. Actual fist fights to win her affection.
It all seems too good to be true.
The only question on Jane’s mind is whether or not her newfound beauty is going to last or if it’s some cruel trick of fate that will fade away as quickly as it appeared.
Because everybody knows, when something seems too good to be true, it probably is.
***If I Were Beautiful is a saucy romance with a mystical twist that will leave you breathless to find out what happens next. This is book one of a three book series. Book two will release April 2017, Book three, July 2017 (or sooner).
Not only does she experience the attention of unwanted males but the nastiness of jealousy from other females. And then Jane finds herself in a love triangle. In one corner we have Brodie. The bad boy who isn't so bad. Tattooed, muscly and oh so easy on the eyes. And yet, he didn't see Jane when she was her true self. In the other corner, there is Wesley. The stern yet sexy man who was captivated by Jane's eyes the first time they met. Granted, there was some animosity between the two of them but it faded quickly. Both men want the new Jane but are they just in love with her appearance or the personality behind it? For me? I love Wes! He is my favourite with his great ass and chocolate eyes. It's hard not to melt when he says things like this:
"You have beautiful green eyes, Jane. Like emeralds with flecks of gold. They're truly radiant."
"You know what I love about oak trees?"
"What's that?" I sneered.
"They're so damn thick, from tip to root..."
While the story is fun and humourous in parts it does touch on some real issues like body image. Not all of us love the way we look but we should cherish what we have. It is what makes us different, unique and special. If you are a nerd, wear it with pride. No matter who you are you should be happy in your own skin. It won't be easy but the best thing you can do is appreciate yourself because then you will be the best you can be.
Now be warned, this is a three part series so we have to wait for the next installment. Argh! I can't wait to see what trouble Jane gets into next. Plus I can't wait to see what happens with Wes and Brodie. So much left to discover! Will Jane accept herself or will she play "Chelsea" again? Is the next part out yet?
