Normaal gesproken komt Jane altijd met een heel sterk plot, maar dat ontbrak deze keer voor mijn gevoel. Such a beautiful tale of friendship and dating from an older angle rather than our contemporary focus on gen z.

The protagonist in this book is Joni, a mature woman that has been divorced and is very comfortable financially. Once she and Ant are an item, however, it's soon clear that the only thing Ant was honest about was his profile picture.I also loved how different our three female leads were - in age, appearance and personality, each bringing something wonderful to the dynamic though. I throughly enjoyed this book, a total easy read which I would look forward to ‘tucking into’ before bed every night.

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! It is set in London, in rich areas and the characters are different, relatable (in a way) and absorbing. 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. Het idee van dit verhaal is natuurlijk superleuk, maar voor mij kwam er eigenlijk geen enkele verrassing. Just a bunch of bored housewives who got dumped or widowed and who didn’t have any kind of personality other than their men and their men’s money because none of them had lives until their swindler.Not to mention she went through his phone while he was asleep and went through his messages in the dating app…. I love the plot, the characters even the villainous ones, the setting, the writing and the sweet punishment for the wrong doings.

About the author: Jane Fallon is the multi-award-winning television producer behind shows such as This Life, Teachers and 20 Things to Do Before You’re 30.

Joni investigates, contacts them and compare notes and what better way to teach him a lesson than a bit of sweet revenge towards the liar. If you love a feel-good story with female friendship at the heart, with a hint of revenge and a plot that gets you completely invested; Just Got Real is definitely one for you. Firstly because of the need to catfish, and then when the catfish becomes the conned, the need to keep sleeping with him to mine for more information. Whilst I did love their friendship, I found the last 10-15% of the book unnecessary and dragged out. Jane is known as the revenge queen, but I really think the dialogue queen is more fitting, because the dialogue is truly masterful in this book.

The writing style of this book was very enjoyable and I really liked the emotions that this book brought to me. De schrijfstijl blijft wel echt fantastisch, dus als Jane weer een nieuw boek uitbrengt, ga ik die gewoon weer enthousiast lezen!Ik word altijd blij als er een nieuwe roman van Jane Fallon verschijnt, want haar verhalen zijn altijd zo sterk, maar ik zal dan maar meteen eerlijk zeggen dat ik dat bij dit verhaal niet had. I thought it was also such a gorgeous look at loneliness and making friends as an adult, which can feel so daunting.
