Just Got Real: The gripping revenge comedy and Sunday Times bestseller 2023
About this deal
Witty, funny, beautifully written and dotted with life's truths like sprinkles on a birthday cake." - Cathy Kelly I also loved how different our three female leads were - in age, appearance and personality, each bringing something wonderful to the dynamic though. Joni is the real central character, and very easy to warm to (and relate to in many ways, apart from the gym 🤣), but I also fell for sweet widow Mary, and gobby Saffy with a heart of gold. Fallon definitely knows how to write women!

Overall, I was entertained, but not fully invested. However, I would definitely read more books by Jane Fallon.

I also thought that this story could have benefited from being more fast paced. And having more Lucas in it. I loved the way the friendship blossomed between him and Joni but I understood the focus was on the friendship between the three wronged women. This is the great dating app novel, red in tooth and claw, full of secret lives and lies, the story of what we will do to find love - and how far we will go when that longing is cruelly betrayed. Jane just keeps getting better and better. Her books are so smart, funny and warm. I really love her relatable characters, who appear fragile until they become warriors we cheer for ADELE PARKS

Whilst this is a story of three women trying to get revenge on a man who’s been playing them all, it’s also so much deeper than that. I thought it was also such a gorgeous look at loneliness and making friends as an adult, which can feel so daunting. As much as I loved watching them make Ant squirm, I REALLY loved the moments where the women were all together and just having the best time as friends - and I definitely had some warm fuzzies going on by the end! Just Got Real is a story of four vividly-drawn women and one horribly believable man, a novel about friendship and treachery that contains what must be the killer twist of the year. Totally brilliant.' * TONY PARSONS * De schrijfstijl blijft wel echt fantastisch, dus als Jane weer een nieuw boek uitbrengt, ga ik die gewoon weer enthousiast lezen!I’ve read all of the British author’s novels and love her or hate her she certainly makes an impact in the book world with her clever, contemporary, disloyalty fiction and I simply love them. Als Joni ontdekt dat Ant tijdens hun relatie nog steeds zeer actief op de app is, begint het spel... Vanaf dan probeert ze, samen met twee andere vrouwen, wraak op hem te nemen. Her snappy, clever fiction . . . seems to slip down like a glass of nicely chilled white wine. Just Got Real - her 12th book - makes no exception . . . Fallon has a nose for distilling the zeitgeist and we are in The Tinder Swindler territory here * Sunday Telegraph *
