I didn’t relate to our main character Joni at all and as lovely as I think she probably was, I just didn’t like her or care for her that much. Such a beautiful tale of friendship and dating from an older angle rather than our contemporary focus on gen z. Ze krijgen een relatie en het leven lijkt haar toe te lachten – tot ze via haar account ontdekt dat Ant nog steeds heel actief is op de app. What’s not to love about a plot where three women form a friendship as they plot their revenge on a conman who tries to scam them out of thousands of pounds! 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.

Love the friendship that the three women made who were being duped by a con artist on the dating site.

Three middle-aged women try online dating and are conned by a guy who is dating all of them at the same time. But it doesn’t take long for her to realise that he is still online dating and intimately texting other women. It is set in London, in rich areas and the characters are different, relatable (in a way) and absorbing.

They have no proper lives but they have lots of money and this book shows us how, through the power of (first) marrying up and (then) friendship, you can actually have it all. She's planning to confess all to Ant, the man she's been happily dating for a few months, but then she finds out that he's in the midst of a much bigger indiscretion when she discovers messages from other women, ones he's communicating with at the same time as seeing her.I really liked the ending of this book, it left me very satisfied with the outcome and it was well deserved. The story is told from Joni’s perspective mostly, she is the one who is trying to expose what Ant is up to. 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. Not to mention she went through his phone while he was asleep and went through his messages in the dating app….

Het idee van dit verhaal is natuurlijk superleuk, maar voor mij kwam er eigenlijk geen enkele verrassing.Fallon describes Joni's job-sharing down to a tee, that slight resentment of the other person and any work they didn't manage to get to. Joni is the real central character, and very easy to warm to (and relate to in many ways, apart from the gym 🤣), but I also fell for sweet widow Mary, and gobby Saffy with a heart of gold. Whilst I did love their friendship, I found the last 10-15% of the book unnecessary and dragged out. Firstly because of the need to catfish, and then when the catfish becomes the conned, the need to keep sleeping with him to mine for more information. Once she and Ant are an item, however, it's soon clear that the only thing Ant was honest about was his profile picture.

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. She then concocts a plan, to accidentally meet Ant in real life without revealing who she really is. Her Sunday Times bestselling books – Getting Rid of Matthew, Got You Back, Foursome, The Ugly Sister, Skeletons, Strictly Between Us, My Sweet Revenge, Faking Friends, Tell Me a Secret, Queen Bee, Worst Idea Ever and Just Got Real – have sold over a million copies in the UK.The topics in this book were lonely women, online con artists, friendships, alcoholism, gullible women etc. Jane Fallon is the multi-award-winning television producer behind shows such as This Life, Teachers and 20 Things to Do Before You're 30. 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.
