The Anatomy of Jane by Amelia LeFay

The Anatomy of Jane (WJM Book 1) - Amelia LeFay

Review copy provided by Netgalley and Xpresso Book Tours in exchange of a honest review.

 

I got really excited when my request for this book was approved. I was really intrigued by it.


However, it turned out I was really disappointed. The major issue was the spelling and grammatical mistakes. It’s not a finished copy, so it’s ok to have some mistakes (there may even be mistakes in finished copy, it happens), but it was way too much. Some sentences were impossible to understand because of the missing words and the formatting problems. Some quotations marks were missing, you were not sure when a character was talking or not, and things like that. I almost stopped reading it because of that.

 

The plot was really flat. Nothing really happened then the end was rushed. The characters were not likable. Jane is an ass, she seems like a good person for some reasons, but she is too quick to judge people and trying to punch them in the face. The guys were also bad, they are total ass themselves in the way they treat other people (people working for them for example). They just seem like robots with no feelings at all, just wanting to have sex all day long. The ending reveals a more likable side of them, but that was it.

 

The sex scenes were really hot. I’m not used to erotica at all though, so it may be a bad judgment because I have nothing to compare with. I still had some problems with them because it was too harsh and not intimate at all. I felt like I was watching porn and that’s not the feeling I want out of this kind of books. Still, it was hot, that's why I gave it two stars.

 

The ending is a cliffhanger, but I don’t really care about what’s going to happen next. Maybe it’s just not the kind of book for me.

It was still pretty addictive and I read it really fast. Then I slowed down at the end because I was bored and I wanted it to end.

 

I won’t recommend this book, but I’m still going to explore more erotica books, to see if it’s this book the problem, or if I have problem with that kind of books. We’ll see.
