About this deal

This is a wonderful read, hilarious, witty and emotional all in one bundle of online dating and finding new friends. She wants to get back out there on the dating scene and is really hitting it off with Ant, but Ant is also hitting it off with other women while seeing Joni (who he knows as Lucy). 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. Yet unable to stop thinking about what might have been, she hatches a plan to 'meet' Ant in real life without revealing who she really is.

Whilst I did love their friendship, I found the last 10-15% of the book unnecessary and dragged out. I loved the way the friendship blossomed between him and Joni but I understood the focus was on the friendship between the three wronged women. She’s so nervous that she posts fake photos – but when she starts talking to Ant, who’s desperate to meet her, she doesn’t dare come clean. 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.I found it a bit hard to swallow that Joni was on her high horse about Ant lying when she herself had used pictures of her sister on her online profile, then followed (stalked.

Joni contacts the other women after going through Ant’s phone while he’s asleep and from there on in it gets even more hilarious to read.

Saffy’s first instinct is to have a drink and talk through it all and suggest getting even with him, but Mary’s first contact with Joni has her hanging up on her chalking it up to a mis-identity. There are two main themes that Fallon explores which are middle aged dating, which for some reason, at my ripe 28 years, I’ve always loved reading about, and she also explores friendship through the dynamics of Joni, Saffy and Mary.

But it doesn’t take long for her to realise that he is still online dating and intimately texting other women. Overall: not one for me, nor would I personally recommend it, but it's got fairly good reviews so worth a go if you like the sound of the synopsis.I love the plot, the characters even the villainous ones, the setting, the writing and the sweet punishment for the wrong doings. Whilst you might guess some of it, it’s still just such a fun, whipsmart read and I really didn’t want to put it down for a minute! The Queen of the revenge dramedy is back with a hilarious, fun and wicked romance that will tickle the funny bone and satisfy the soul.
