REVIEW for Got you Back


A big thank you goes out to Deanna for sending me this book!
TITLE: Got you Back
AUTHOR: Jane Fallon
GENRE: Contemporary fiction
RATING: 3 Stars
For more information on this book please visit:
This is my second Janne Fallon book. I liked Getting Rid of Matthew and was hoping that this second book would be as good. Unfortunately, this one is only okay. What I like about Jane Fallon is that in both books she takes a tricky subject such as adultery and gives it a bit of a twist - the twist being that the guy always ends up being a huge loser - and, in the end, rejected by both his wife AND his mistress. I love this concept - and its no different in Got You Back.
Stephanie is the wife and Katie is the mistress and both are in love with James - who manages to create for himself a nice little cozy situation until both of the women in his life decide to unite in order to teach the letch a lesson he will never forget. What does not work for me in this book is the writing style. It somehow felt cold and distant this time around - not as personal as in her first book. I loved the storyline and really, what kept be going to the end was my curiosity over whether the girls would really end up dumping the c cheating James.
This book could have been much better considering the great, great set up.

I love guy bashing books! Even though you only gave it 3 stars I might have to check it out.

It's too bad this one didn't live up to it's potential.
