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.

This was really an unusual thriller that I read and I actually enjoyed reading this thriller. This is a story about a woman who is known as “Jane Doe” (we don’t know if that’s her real name) coming back to Minneapolis to avenge on her friend’s Meg’s death. She meets Steven at the work, who is or might be responsible for Meg’s suicide and soon works her way to make Steven fall in love with him. Eventually, she is able to enact her revenge plan.

The story is mainly told from Jane’s perspective and I was surprised that I actually enjoyed reading this book. From the first chapter till the end, I was hooked into the story, wondering if Jane will actually kill Steven or not. The author did a good job of drawing the reader into the story. Though there wasn’t much twists in the story, nonetheless, I enjoyed the fast paced theme in this book. The ending was really a gripping and unexpected ending. Overall, it was a fast paced and unputdownable thriller that will keep you at the edge of the seat. Worth four and a half stars!
