This is book 2 in the Blurred Lines series and it features Tiffany Ennis and Devon "Gold Daddy" Gold. I adore Tiffany. So young, now 18, and so brave with a strength of character most never have. She's taken so much bs from everyone her whole life and she's still a good person. Devon is a music producer, 30 years old, going through a divorce and he acts like an older man trying to fit in with the young crowd. If he were young at heart my opinion would probably be different. He has a temper but not abusive. He was often thoughtless when it came to Tiffany. I think she was looking for that father figure she never had growing up.
It was just a bad match in my opinion. I'm looking forward to book 3.
I thought the author handled the update really well. Too often modern adaptations fall flat because an author can't stick to the spirit of the original or go with a straight copy which doesn't work in modern settings. Not so here.
Tiffany is both a great Jane and a good character in her own right. It's nice to have a mature, level headed NA heroine for a change. She was very likeable and I liked her serene low key style. No OTT histrionics for this heroine. I felt like she conveyed the goodness of Jane without being a cardboard cut out copy, she was still her own character.
Devin could have used a tad more depth but was still a strong character with an interesting smouldery presence in the story. I also thought there was great chemistry between the characters and their relationship developed into a sweet but hot slow burn romance.
The only place the story really fell down for me was the SPOILER separation. Given the source material I get that this was necessary and I do give the author marks for not going down the secret wife in the attic line. I read another Jane Eyre adaptation a few years ago where this element was kept and it did not work. It's fine in the original novel given the difficulties obtaining a divorce and the lack of mental health understanding and care, but really makes no sense in a modern setting.
The problem was, the author didn't add much to fill this gap in the story. When the separation happened I didn't really get the motive for it; it didn't seem that there was any material development to justify the heroines actions, which killed a bit of the drama.
I will also say that the story worked best when the author kept to the main themes of Jane Eyre without diving too deeply into the original story. I felt the authors own development of the characters relationship was very good and felt quite organic, but when she appeared to try and lift a lot of the proposal scene from JE it felt a bit forced, it didn't seem real for these characters.
I'd really give this three and a half stars as there were a few problems but on the whole I thought it was a good read, and I would recommend giving it a try.
I received this book for free in exchange for a honest review, and honestly...it is a must read!
