Bookworm- Got Your Back Review

Can you believe it me finishing books at the moment is like buses it takes you a while for you to do one and then come along in no time. This is the second book which I have finished this month which takes me up to the grand total of two finished this year I am unsure if I will actually finish anymore this year because of the fact that I am returning to Uni in a couple of weeks and who knows if I will have time to read for pleasure. Anyway here are my thoughts on Jane Fallon’s got your back book.

The Blurb:

A husband. A wife. A mistress. And the ultimate plan for revenge . . .

The husband

James never intended to lead a double life – with a wife in London and a mistress in the country, it’s exhausting. But that’s all about to change . . .

The wife

Stephanie isn’t really snooping when she finds a text message from a strange woman on her husband’s mobile. But now she’s found it, how can she ignore it? It’s time to track the woman down and find out what’s going on . . .

The mistress

Katie has no reason to believe her boyfriend, James, is cheating until someone claiming to be his wife gets in touch. Now she’s been cast in the role of mistress. Not one she’s happy with . . .

Once Stephanie and Katie know about each other, they must decide what to do. They could both just throw him out or they could join forces to make his life hell first . . .

But revenge isn’t always sweet. And what happens when one woman thinks enough is enough but the other doesn’t know when to stop?

My Review

Now I thought this was going to be a book which I loved it has an amazing story line which seems to interest me a wife and a mistress which sounds like they there is going to be something really exciting which we did not see coming. Some great revenge on her husband which sounds like my cup of tea well I hate to break it to you the story line/ plot was actually better than the book itself the plan that Stephanie and Katie come up with but it wasn’t as exciting as I thought it would be. I wanted more of a ‘smack-you-in-the-face’ resolution or perhaps some kind of unexpected event or twist to make me go ‘wow!’, but it was just a little lacking. I wanted something a little bit more juicy than that to happen if I am been truthful.  

I think the characters were a little vague as I didn’t really connect with them. If anything I think the wife Stephanie was really hard to like at all there was just something about her. The love interest for Stephanie , Michael, was sooo boring and dull. It felt like they had no chemistry at all and everything seemed to be super rushed with that relationship. This is the stage when it just seemed to get really boring from then onwards. I must say, I liked the part where they were styling celebrities for the BAFTA’s. That was quite interesting but the rest was dull. 

This is a book which was not a page turner it was one which I finished because I hate not actually finishing a book and I did leave a while back part read because of the fact that I was not enjoying it that much. This is a book which I can see people reading around the pool or on a beach because it is something to pass the time when relaxing in the sun but it is not one which I would recommend people to go out and purchase. 

Have you read this book if so what did you think?
