Just Got Real

What to expect

Brought to you by Penguin.

Joni never thought she would try online dating. 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. Instead, Joni finds a way to meet Ant without revealing her true identity. It’s perfect, it works, and she’s happy – until a few months in, Joni discovers she wasn’t the only one being deceitful: on Ant’s phone are intimate messages between him and two other women.

Hurt and furious, Joni calls the women. They’re angry. They want revenge. But how exactly will they get it?

Critics Review

  • I’ve read – and loved – ALL of Jane Fallon’s books, but Just Got Real is her best yet! The plotting is as ingenious and entertaining as ever but this book has a lot of WARMTH and HEART. It’s especially gorgeous on female friendship

  • Y’know when you find a book that you cannot wait to get back to, that you sneak time on your own with or cancel arrangements in order to read? Well this is one of those books. Had me gripped and spellbound. I kept saying to myself ‘Just one more chapter’…and then a chapter later ‘Okay, just one more’… I found it impossible to put down. Jane Fallon is SO good at human behaviour and what makes us tick. Fabulous characters and a story that just will not let you go! Loved it.

  • This escapist gem is loud-snort funny

  • Jane just keeps getting better and better. Her books are so smart, funny and warm. I really love her relatable characters, who appear fragile until they become warriors we cheer for

  • Witty, smart, topical and full of heart…the sun-lounger smash of the summer

  • Sharply observed, wickedly funny, with real depths of emotion too. Absolutely unputdownable.
