About the Book:
A double life with a single purpose: revenge. Jane’s days at a Midwest insurance company are perfectly ordinary. She blends in well, unremarkably pretty in her floral-print dresses and extra efficient at her low-level job. She’s just the kind of woman middle manager Steven Hepsworth likes—meek, insecure, and willing to defer to a man. No one has any idea who Jane really is. Least of all Steven. But plain Jane is hiding something. And Steven’s bringing out the worst in her. Nothing can distract Jane from going straight for his heart: allowing herself to be seduced into Steven’s bed, to insinuate herself into his career and his family, and to expose all his dirty secrets. It’s time for Jane to dig out everything that matters to Steven. So she can take it all away. Just as he did to her.

People cause pain. Even good people hurt those they love. We all do it because we can’t help it. Most of us aren’t evil; we’re just stupid and flawed and not careful with others.
This situation could easily happen in our lives even though it seems unbelievable. It emphasises the possibilities of the impact of a person with a sociopathic personality which most of us do not wish to believe exists. There is something I love about unlikable characters in psychological thrillers. Jane Doe has characters you loathe, yet you can’t stop reading. This is one dark, disturbing and totally compelling read.

Love. It’s weakness. Vulnerability. It’s waiting for an inevitable wound and then praying it will someday heal.
This is a truly well written revenge story and I liked the premise so much. Jane, the protagonist, was brilliantly constructed and was the female character every book needs. Her revenge was also very satisfying. A very refreshing and different take on the psychological thriller. Victoria Helen Stone writes a really intriguing story, and as weird as it sounds, I adored the character of Jane. She's a strange one but I loved her attitude and also her reasoning for doing all she did.

Amazing to me that men can see where they're aiming and what they're aiming with and they still can't hit the mark.
This will make you think about emotional abuse and revenge. I loved how loyal Jane was, to her friend and to getting her revenge. Steven, the object of her attentions, is truly a loathsome human being and I was cheering her on all the way. I was really happy with the ending too.
