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. Until now. 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. Constantly. 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).
Male Author: I rejoiced when I say the author was a male (I also do not have anything against female authors—especially female romance authors). I love reading books by male authors (Nicholas Sparks, anyone??). I love seeing how they write females and males and just any book. I love it.
Style: Devon Hartford's included the right amount of humor, romance, and reality. I have come across a handful of romance novels that have lacked two out of the three, which led to a bland story.
JANE: It seems like it is difficult to find a female protagonist that I actually love in a romance novel. She's unique. She's such a kind lady. Her intelligence is obvious, which I admire. She has a great sense of humor; characters who have those are my favorite. Throughout the story, her character transforms so well. (Refer to a caterpillar transforming into a butterfly.)
What I learned: You do not have to be beautiful to be attractive. Intelligence is more important than appearance. Men who do not fall for you or your personality do not deserve the time of day.
What I did not like
The men: CERTAIN MEN NEED TO FALL FOR PERSONALITY OR INTELLIGENCE RATHER THAN APPEARANCE.
AUTHOR BIO: Devon Hartford is a dude who writes romantic comedies because he likes to laugh as much as he likes to love.
